So it’s not the words, but the tones that we need to learn to use. If certain pitches are beneficial, are there also those that are destructive? According to Goldman, “Depending on the time, place, and need of the individual, any music can be potentially healing. If something doesn’t feel good, then it’s not right for you.” He recommends avoiding extremely loud music as it activates the “fight or flight” response and can overstress the immune system. It’s also important to choose the music and sounds that are conducive to a desired activity, like upbeat and activating music for exercise. I strive to enhance my life each day by attending to sounds and their resonance. Try this practice on your own by taking some steps to influence the sounds around you. Choose your music to match a purpose in order to align the mood. Select the tone of your voice to support your intention. Learn to mindfully tune into sound, and you'll be able to harmonize its amazing power into everyday life.
