Energy in music

Music can have a powerful effect on us. Many experiments show that music affects our state of consciousness in beneficial or adverse ways. Music also has effect on the growth of plants and the energy patterns in water. Watch the following video to see water crystals energized by music.

Music goes directly from heart to heart. When music is performed, a transfer takes place of energies that were put in by the composer and the performers to the listeners. These energies can be of different kinds. They can be energies of love, or sometimes hatred, that affect us on a heart level. They can also be energies on the level of the mind, inspiring us to get certain thoughts and feelings. A lot of music has a direct effect on the body, inciting us to dance or move. Some music has a strong healing effect.

Here i would like to write some words on the process of energy transfer through music. How does it work? For example, when you want to make music that has a healing effect, how could it be done?

The first that is necessary is to know a source of good energy and to have access to this source. This source of good energy can be in yourself or it can be outside of you, for example somewhere in nature. The energy that you connect to can have many different qualities. For example, you could connect to energy of the sun, or energy in parts of the cosmos, or energy in an ocean, energy in a tree, energy from the earth. The sources of good energy are sheer endless.

The second thing necessary is the medium through which you will pass on that good energy. The medium in this case is music. There is the composer of the music, the performer of the music and there are the music instruments. The main method to make the medium work in an excellent way is that all which is medium is centered both on the source of good energy and on the objects of your love, the people for whom the music is played and composed. The composer, thinking of the people for whom he or she makes the music, brings good energy into the composition. This is very much an intuitive and direct process. It works when the composer is very concentrated on both the energy source and the future or present audience. Often it helps to compose the music for just one particular person. Love flows more easily when you know to whom to give it. The process is the same for the performers of the music. Though some of the energies have been sealed into the music by the composer, the performers need to unite with the original intentions of the composer and need to revive the original energies to work as a channel for these energies to reach the audience.

The third element to be aware of is the listener, the object of the musician's love. When you make music, you don't make it just for yourself. You want to offer your music to other people. When music is composed, the identity of the listener is frequently known by the composer. When music is performed, the listeners are immediate objects to the love and energy that is given in or transferred through the music. It is here, in the actual musical performance, that the magic of music erupts in all its beauty and splendor.

Love and energy only flow when there are three elements present: the source of love and energy, a channel (composer and performers, the music itself and the music instruments) that function as medium, and the objects or the people to whom the music and the love and energy in it are given.

Listing these three elements may sound quite self-evident, but it is the degree that this is understood and mastered by composers and performers that music can be elevated from just a common daily experience to an event of mystical and truly beneficial proportions. When this process is understood, either intuitively or intellectually, there can come into existence a flow of good energies, emotions and joy of which the composer/performer experiences to be a part rather than a controller.
