The Magical Healing Power Of Music.

In a previous blog post, 'Letting Go And The Music Of Heartbreak' I wrote of an alternative and flexible way in which to listen to music in order to let go of past relationships. How we face situations in life determines the feelings that are produced by events, the memories created and how we feel when we remember.

Music is particularly important in everyone's story. In a way, it works as invisible ink that through life is used to write our story on the soul and psyche. What we write on it and how we write it is everyone's personal responsibility. Each individual is responsible for the way they feel regardless of what experiences they've been through or how we've been treated.

Music is used by many in order to create healing spaces. Some, like music therapists or healers might have training and a method to follow. Some others resort to experience and intuition to recreate the same results. Everyone holds an incredible power within to heal. This path is found through intuitive intelligence; an intelligence which transcends ego and intelligence itself. 

If we paid attention when listening to silence, everyone would hear the music within. Then the magic begins.

However advanced one is in their personal or spiritual development, sometimes it is necessary to ask for help. There are periods of stagnation in which nothing seems to work or one is not advancing at the same pace that they're used to. We don't always have to do it alone. An incredible synergy is created between people and souls when we work together and move in the same direction. 

One voice, one heart, one soul. 

A few months months ago I was sitting with someone who had repeatedly asked for my help, but whom refused to give anything in exchange, as his asking came from a place of entitlement. Of course, like everyone else I like to get paid for my work. I had been listening to him though. It was not so much as refusing to help, but to show that sometimes we have to make an effort and invest in our personal development if we want to obtain positive results. This is a brief account of what happened. No words can truly describe it. 

As I listened to him talking about heartbreak for the hundredth time, I asked him to pause. It was obvious that he had not listened to a word I said. Words don't really teach. Experience does. Hence, I needed to get his attention in a different way. As he allowed silence in, I began playing a famous, popular song, the perfect vehicle to work with feelings and emotions. The song is about remembering, longing and if listened to it repeatedly, to never let go. The vivid representation humanity has of heartbreak.

Next I played another popular song, expressing gratitude for having had the wonderful opportunity to love such a special someone in their lives.. No longing, no melancholy; only appreciation and love. 

The third song was written and sang by a talented friend of mine. A song about the pursuit of freedom, returning to the soul and revisiting the essence of home. As I talk to him, I had already changed my tone of voice. A subtle adjustment imperceptible at the time. Every word, movement and piece of music  that was played followed a deliberate intention: to heal. 

Thus far, he revisited the experience of what he knew in his life to that date. With Chopin's music the attention moved inwards, touching his emotions. Even though he was new to classical music, the feeling of the composition sounded familiar: longing, in pain, seeking inner peace through the love of creativity and inspiration. Rachmaninoff sent him deeper into his emotions. A feeling of isolation followed by a sensation of heaviness and lethargy. 

With the purity of Bach he stood before heaven's doors and shown the path to God. At first Brahms was too much, too rich to handle. He neither understood it, nor liked it. My response to him was: "this is God talking to you, but you're not listening". God as in Brahms' music. 

To such feeling of uneasiness I added Beethoven. A music that brought in him a different emotion, and the intention of courage. As the music changed, I described to him the energy of his feelings and emotions. Beethoven was a place he wanted to be in, but a feeling he couldn't recognise. By then he was completely out of his normal state of feeling, being so absorbed by the intensity of the healing process. 

It was the perfect time to return to Bach and show him the doors to heaven on earth again. As this time he allowed the unknown, flowing in the energy that had taken over the room, I presented him with Brahms again, although a different piece: "Lullaby." At recognising this piece of music he showed the wonder and relief of the child within. It was God talking to him. He was listening again. 

By the time I stopped playing music I asked him to tell me what he was talking about before the unexpected session started. Not only he couldn't remember, there were no thoughts in his mind. He reached a state of bliss. Heaven on earth. His beliefs and fears about hell disappeared that day. All need, want and desire vanished. The rest of the evening continued with the same feeling and thoughtless minds. He tried to bring thoughts to his head to no avail. With a new set of beliefs, his sense of entitlement collapsed and he was happy then to offer payment in exchange.

What happened during the session was a sudden shift in vibrations rising consciousness. In his case the change was significant, as this was a man who up until then had been living with the lowest vibrations of apathy, lethargy and depression.

Gestalt therapy allows to recreate such magical experiences, inducing states of mind, opening up to wonderful energies in which someone can explore multiple possibilities in personal transformation. We all  are naturally  magic. Each one of us has the ability to visit such enchanting places. Let's believe and allow it. If we cannot get there by ourselves, it is always alright to ask. 

Remember: One voice, one heart, one soul. Then magic is universal. 

If you decided to take the initiative and experiment with music, let me emphasise that all healing is flexible and that intuition will take you far. Choose your tunes and let the heart dance towards the healing music of your soul. 

Soul Readings: An Immediate Shift In Energy And Consciousness.

There are numerous tools and practices that anyone can use in order to better themselves. Sometimes external guidance is needed, sometimes one takes the initiative to get the similar results. A soul reading, what many people refer to as psychic reading is one of them. There's little anyone can tell anyone else is regards to their life or personal development, except when for several reasons one is experiencing severe disconnection from their core. This stage is easy to recognise. Negative thoughts or inner conversations take over and from then on the path is uphill. How someone gets to such state varies and it's not the subject of this blog post. How to get out of it, it's determined by someone's decision to bring change. A soul reading is connection.

Why is it called Soul Readings?

A reading is a channelled message from the soul. In order to proceed with the reading, the reader has to connect with someone else's spirit. Everyone has this ability, which is presented to most people as what's called a 'gut feeling'. In my case, I only channelled the message that I receive, put it into words and deliver it. I believe that everyone has the ability to make this connection. When asked how I do it, the answer is simple: I take the time.  

What is it and how it works?

Whether someone believes that everyone has a soul or that it has a message to deliver is of no importance either. The effects and benefits are the same. Everyone is free to believe what they wish and to apply it to their life in the best way they can. What we believe is what surrounds us. Often people need to receive a message or a sign from someone else; one of the reasons why people get soul or psychic readings. 

The method is simple. The reading is done from making a connection with someone's energy or soul through a face photo. It's easier to connect through the eyes. It's as simple as to clear the mind and make such connection within seconds. From then on, every word written is a channelled message. 

The first part of the reading draws an image of the child in their pure essence. It's followed by a 'print' or description of the soul, which emphasises the gifts, talents and attributes of the person that's been read. Often the message includes things that only the person receiving  it can know. The last part is a series of channelled messages that someone might follow in order to either find an answer to a long standing questions or future steps that would bring the most benefit in their life.

The process in which is delivered makes a difference, as there are a few easy steps to follow and what to do with the reading. It provides an immediate shift in energy, which helps to change perspective and see life or the current situation from a different light, as the energy is closer to whom one really is, as it has an influence of someone's consciousness. 

At this point is when the detailed 'instructions' or steps play an important part in what happens next and how someone feels when receiving the reading. It's not really possible to describe the experience, as one only knows once the reading is received. However, it does create a substantial change, which is guided throughout the whole process. The process including the reading can take up to three hours, sometime longer. 

It does answer questions and brings clarity. 

In order to get some insight, I believe that the best is to read some of the reviews from people who received a soul reading already, and that can be found on this page.

The following blog post offers more information on how to get a soul reading, including free ones. 

Finally, a soul reading is not a final solution, but it has proven to be an incredible tool for self-development and shift towards healthier emotional states.

Understanding Heartbreak And How To Turn It Into A Positive Experience.

Perhaps the most important fact about heartbreak, is that unknowingly everyone holds such experience within, but we continue living with it unaware of its existence or or how it influences our lives. Generally heartbreak is understood as the hurt after separating from a romantic partner. This experience is only a reproduction of the original one, and for the purpose of creating awareness, I've written a book, which identifies the moment in which it took hold of our hearts, how to understand it, how to go through the experience so as to turn it into an exercise of self-healing, letting go and being in love. 

Sometimes the worst experiences we have to go through come also with invaluable lessons that in time turn to be the best that could have happen to us. It is also a guide on how to improve relationships, by understanding the effect of feelings and emotions, and also how to explore the self, to realise, that our flaws are learned patterns that we adapted from others during a period in life in which we didn't have, neither the experience, nor the awareness to question what were being taught. Often what people know is not knowledge at all.

This book is a journey through the all the phases of heartbreak, exploring its unknown or unperceived origins, and how it affects a person throughout life, influencing thinking, behaviour, personal choices, relationships and in particular the hurt after separation. It offers a simple, practical healing method with practices easily adaptable to everyone's experience, taking the reader to the liberating moment of letting go. It is also an examination of the stage of being in love, and how by listening to the call of the soul, anyone could live in a permanent state of bliss. 

Almost imperceptible, heartbreak already lies in everyone's heart waiting to be revisited and reproduced time and again with the purpose to open the heart to its full potential and to universal love. Understanding its origins and its reality is essential in the healing process. Without this knowledge, heartbreak may cause mayhem in someone's temporary experiences, but also through the entire length of their lives.

The flexibility of the method and examination of heartbreak in this text makes it a suitable reading for anyone regardless of their current situation or marital status. Whether someone is at the stage of separation and heartbreak, single or in a relationship, this journey encourages personal leadership, so as to make of self-healing and art of personal expression and creativity. By going through the experience, making sense of feelings and emotions, the process turns into an adventure of self-discovery in which anyone can embody the art of being in love.

However hurtful and complicated it might seem, the answers to understanding heartbreak are simple. Each new self-realisation allows you to move on a new, higher state of consciousness, and to a new feeling, as the heart opens to love again. Heartbreak is the beginning of an inner revolution that can only be healed through self-exploration. 

One never knows how deep they are until the take the plunge. This is an excellent opportunity to heal your heart and your life, to recognise the endless possibilities of the self, as well as enabling you to find out your true and incredible potential, so as to realise that you already are a being of love and in love.

My new book is now available on Kindle.
