Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish: Music
Music: “Music plays a very important part in our energetic and physical well-being. Music, and certain binaural rhythms have the ability to aid us into altered states of consciousness. Music can calm us down, rev us up, and affect our mood in many ways. It can assist in the physical release of disease and alter our cellular frequencies. It can also affect the vibrational energy patterns within a space.
Your guides are asking that you start to integrate music more into your everyday life. It is important to help shift and move energies within your physical body and auric field. Take time to move, flow, and dance to the music. It does not matter what kind of music it is, just as long as you feel good when you listen to it. Music plays a more important role in your well-being than you may be aware of right now.
This card also comes to those who have musical gifts, talents, and abilities. Firstly, Spirit is acknowledging your gifts. They are also encouraging you to continue to grow and develop your talent, and to be open to sharing your sound with the world. Whether you are a musician, singer, or sound healer, it is important that you do not give up on yourself or your gifts. Time to stop holding back or doubting if this is what you are meant to do.
Music is a universal language and physical manifestation of Divine energy in full expression. It is time to turn up other radio or dig out your mp3 player. Sing out loud like no one is listening, dance free like no one is watching. Get a little crazy and wild. Have fun and enjoy it. Make music a part of your everyday routine and watch your energy, mood, and creative force blossom!”*

Writing a blog about the healing qualities of music is actually challenging! This being a subject that many books have been written about, and for a very good reason. There is really nothing quite as satisfying, healing, exhilarating, humbling, or more nostalgic than music. Music is the quickest fix there is, even in today’s society. It can lift you up, soaring like nothing else, and it can bring you to tears in seconds. It can calm babies, create new neural pathways (basically it makes you smarter!) and raises your vibration almost instantly. Music is a miracle unto itself. Note the hearts in the photo on the card, music is love in sound vibration!
The Universe is music, and there is a sacred connection between music, math and sacred geometry (I’m no expert, as much as I know this fact with conviction, I have not figured it out… yet!). Sound vibration can heal people, plants and animals alike. Archangel Sandalphon is the angel of music, and he is also the angel who delivers our prayers to heaven/the Universe/Source for us. If you are being called to music, you are working with Archangel Sandalphon.
Taking music one step further, if you participate in the creation of the music, by singing, chanting, or playing any instrument, you take the healing capabilities of music to a whole ‘nother level! And moving to the music opens and balances your chakras, so it helps the connection between body, mind and spirit. Different tones of music can be played for balancing and activating each of our chakras, and there are movements that also help to maximize the benefits.
Since I couldn’t possibly explain it better than that, here is an awesome video from TED that explains just how awesome playing music really is for you; perfectly and precisely in under 5 min!
Consider adding some biaural beats to your daily regime, some Tibetan Chants, some cultural music. Explore and find what works for you; what lifts you up when you are feeling down, what calms you after a stressful day, what you can work out to and what you can go to sleep to. It’s a very personal choice but it’s so much fun to discover what moves you. Then consider learning to play, sing, chant or dance right along to it. The results just might amaze you!
