The Heart of Music

 

Thanks Aelana for this really interesting harp music therapy programme that looks at the relationship between the heart and music.

The site contains an interesting vimeo from the Institute of Heart Math about the heart and music.  Good information on using biofeedback to train heart rate variability, and induce relaxation and healing in the body.

When we lose consciousness or die, the hearing is one of the last senses to go.

Maybe this is why music is so sacred.

This also spreads light on why chanting is so healing.

When we chant or sing we are soothing our hearts! 🙂

Harping Heals

Harp playing relaxes, energizes, soothes, and heals the youngest of children and oldest of adults.

    • Releases emotional pain
    • Improves short-term memory and attention span
    • Increases social interaction
    • Builds self-esteem
    • Relieves stress

  1. Hi dear friend
    What a beautiful post. I have always drawn to harps. They sound like angels. I am going to try a CD of harp music if I can find one at the health food store. I always find the sounds of the ocean to be as soothing. Right now I am using a Tai Chi Meditation CD I have used for years now. My mind connects to something to fall asleep to. But harp is just excellent.
    Love ya sister
