I have done ABX, I am now trying Buhner exclusively, I have my Elixa (= SOTA) Lightworks thanks to all the recent chat about that, and I now feel ready to start exploring healing music/sounds.

For those who have gone down this path already, what are your favorite sources?

Thanks,
ESG

I really like any music that has the Native American flute in it. I bought one of those relaxing CDs at Target and it mostly has Native American flute in it.

I use it during yoga and find it to be one of the most relaxing, peaceful, and healing sounds there is. I have seen CDs with primary this instrument in it but, I can't think of any names at the moment.

Thought of a couple more:

Crystal Singing bowls are supposed to be very healing. You can either get a crystal singing bowl and do it yourself or you can buy a CD of it.

Another thing is there are practioners that due something called Acutonics. Which are tuning forks that are tuned to different frequencies for different ways of healing.

I don't know much about this one but, I experinced it a few times from my old acupuncturist who also practiced this. I did find it very relaxing and beneficial.

Anything by Steven Halpern is awesome. Dr. jeffery Thompson as well.

If you go to amazon.com and pull up these artists , you'll also get recommendations for similar healing music w/reviews.

thank you all!

Something I found at amazon.com by searching for "healing music" is Jonathan Goldman, and after reading the reviews, I bought the CD Holy Harmony: Healing Code Tuning Forks and Ancient YHSVH Chant, based on electromagnetic frequencies of sound from the Bible, as discussed in a book by Dr. L. Horowitz and Dr. J. Puleo titled Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse.

I listened to it this afternoon, and first felt uneasy, then entranced, then sleepy, then energized, then found myself smiling. I definitely felt myself shifting to a quieter place after the first ten minutes; the smiling came after an hour. It is 72 minutes long, repeating the theme endlessly.

Goldman's company is called Spirit Music.

I have Halpern, many of his CDs that I had before I stopped wanting to listen to any sounds because sounds made me dizzier due to my Lyme. Disease.
Back then I was trying to help myself in any way I could as I enterd Lyme Disease but did not yet know it. Hopefully I have come full circle, feeling able to listen to music again and actually enjoy it!

ESG,

I, too, have had to stop listening to music due to the dizziness and hyperacusis. And, so many add deep vibrations. Ugh.

Hey, I wonder about that new CD you got.

My neighbor's snoring bores through the walls. Ear plugs increase vertigo, so I would be interested in gentle, consistent music that would be more tone and less busy for my brain so that I can sleep through it.


Might this new one work for total sleep ?

I find Stephen Halprin's healing music too busy. Most is for me, but I keep looking.

...I think you should listen to whatever you like that gives comfort regardless of what any 'adept' prescribes for you. We are all different. Mozart would put me to sleep, or at worst in a coma.

Keebler - I know what you mean: many "relaxing" sounds drive me nuts or they have the occasional sound that is truly jarring! Yani makes me want to scream: his beat is definitely not my beat. Halpern can be too busy for me.

You might try CDs of lullabies for babies, as they are usually smooth.
Mike Rowland's The Fairy Ring was one I used to like - again, it was smooth, without jarring transitions. Must try it again.

Holy Harmony may work for sleep - it put me into deep relaxation.

Candace Pert (well-known mind-body medicine doctor) has a great CD called "Psychosomatic Wellness". I ordered mine from Soundstrue, but maybe you could get it on ebay now, not sure.

Deals with positive affirmations, some chakra stuff, some spiritual, visualizations, etc.

I like all kinds of music, too (Charlie). Nothing wrong with rocking out if you're in the mood! or jazz, or classical, or reggae, etc...

The thing about some "music" is that it includes binaural beats specifically for brainwave entrainment. It's special audio that has a purpose. It not always "manby pamby" stuff. (I used to call it "health food store music".)

Music with binaural beats comes in many styles or even no music - just the beats that sound like white noise.

Do a search if you're interested in this. It's really quite fascinating!

There are also guided meditations for pain & other things, subliminal recordings, & lots of amazing stuff.

I never listened to subliminal recordings, knowingly. I heard they use them in stores to stop people from shoplifting.

I love to listen to music, I'm surrounded by it...my husband is a musician so I even get live music in my home!

What I find more relaxing than anything though is playing piano or actually doing something creative.

Painting, even a paint by number, or coloring or anything remotely creative is so good for us.

And we don't do enough of it.

Everything we do in today's world stimulates the left side of the brain.

It's so good for the right side to be stimulated as well. Very healing.

Words cannot even come close to describing what music's done for

me. I would without question be dead if not for it's centrality to my life, and I am

certain that it can be one of the most powerful agents of healing

we have.

You should get a hold of some Bach. His music, more

consistently than any, perhaps, is able to show me the way back

from my "dark nights of the soul," and many have

been so awed by it as to revere

him as a sort of avatar of

God. I recommend the

B minor mass, the works for solo cello and violin, and the

Goldberg Variations as good starting places.

What a great thread!!!!!!

I love music and it definitely speaks to my soul. Anything that calms you is setting off healing chemicals in your body.

I can't wait to try some of your suggestions. Right this minute I have Julio Iglesia on youtube singing "99 miles from LA" Sooooo soothing and sexy!

Oh if I could steal Tincup's dancing figure I would.

The thing about Hemi-sync is that is causes you to get increased circulation in your brain. Do a search on Google for Hemi-sync & look at there brain diagrams of before & after & the other research.

Many of us have brain issues & especially scary is the link to Alzheimers via Lyme. I think using this sort of technology can help us to keep our brains functioning properly.

I like some of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson's work and also, Halpern, 2002, and several others.

However, my all-time favorite healing, relaxing, meditative music is "Liquid Mind". You cannot help but relax to this beautiful music.

You can buy the CD's on most any site where you can buy music, but here is the link the Liquid Mind website where you can sample all the cd's.

I cannot recommend these enough and have turned many on to this music. http://www.liquidmindmusic.com/

Happy Healing!

re: any music healing...

It different with audio that has binaural beats. It's called brainwave entrainment. There are different states of mind that can be reached by using special beats. It's not like listening to regular music.

Some meditation CDs have this brainwave entrainment encoded into the audio tracks. It helps you to meditate or to reach different states of consciousness, alertness, enhanced learning, etc.

This happens because your brain resonates at the same frequencies that the beats are being played at. You need to use headphones or use speakers on either side of the head to get the results.

I love listening to music, but even moreso, I love making it. I'm a drummer and being with a group of fellow drummers can really raise some great healing energy. I've drummed for almot 20 years, and it's just good for what ails me. [Smile]

Keshvara,

I am so glad you enjoy your drumming.

It's funny how one thing can be so healing to one person but nearly poison to another.

Nothing will trigger seizures for me faster than drumming - of any kind - nearly within a 2 block radius - even if not very loud. If seizures are not triggered, then vertigo and nausea are the result of the vibrations and pulses.


Most lyme patients are very sensitive to sound and pressure/vibrations, so you are VERY, VERY LUCKY.


Good vibrations to you.

When I was first ill but did not why, and when I was going to an energy healer, I was told to listen to drumming and to get something to drum upon. So I got Mickey Hart's Planet Drum and liked that, but other drumming was disturbing to me - somehow fed into my Lyme-induced anxiety.

Some classical music that touches me deeply:
Bruch's Scottish Fantasia
Dvorak's New World Symphony
Tchaikovsky Concerto Number 1
Stamitz Clarinet Concerto nos. 1 and 3
Strauss Waltzes

there is a lot more, but these are perhaps my long-time favorites.

In any case, I was originally seeking information on healing music as Sparkle is describing it, something to give my brain and cells a bit of a boost. I wanted to know what is "out there" that others have found useful.

But as others have said, any music that touches your mind and soul is good for you, either to pep you up or calm you down.

I am so glad I want to hear music again, after 10 years of needing silence in order to not get dizzy!

I just have to share something funny: I thought the title of this thread said "HeaRing music: Ideas?"

And I was like, "oh...that's me!" because one of my stranger psychological symptoms is auditory hallucinations where I "hear" music that isn't really there.

I was disappointed you weren't going to give me tips on what I should do about this! [Smile] hahahaha......

I listen to Dr Thompsons CDs, didn't know we had that in common Sparkle. I specifically like the sound of ocean waves at night. So maybe its not all music. Music I do like has changed since I've become sick, I listen a lot to music from one of the music station on my television. Its called soundscapes and has a lot of recorder, or synthesized music scores. In the car, usually easy listening music.

I found this link it is about how water crystaline shape is effected by sound and emotion when that water is frozen and studied under a microscope -- enjoy:
