Deliberately Feel Better with Music

by Melody Fletcher on February 21, 2011

I’ve been working at this Law of Attraction stuff for quite some time. Even before I knew what LOA was, I was learning about the power of our thoughts and how we can control our emotions. And it’s led to some spectacular results. Most of the time I’m happy, sometimes content, sometimes ecstatic. I’m rarely anywhere south of frustration, but it does happen from time to time, and when it does, I have several ways in which I can work my way out of it. One of those ways is to use music to deliberately make myself feel better.

I’ve always loved music. My parents must have suspected that I would – they named me Melody, after all :) . But it wasn’t until a few years ago that I became really conscious of the fact that music could have a profound effect on me, and that I could use this effect to deliberately change the way I feel.

We know that a high note can shatter glass. Standing too close to the speakers at a rock concert can permanently damage your hearing. Sound waves have even been used to treat cancer. The energy of music can certainly affect our physical reality.

Since everything is energy, including us, and our emotions are nothing more than indicators of the frequencies we’re carrying within us, it stands to reason that sound waves have the power to change the frequencies within us, therefore changing our emotions. If you place a glass of water on or near a speaker, you can see the effect that sound waves have on the water. It’ll ripple and given the right frequency, it will even dance. When you hear music, it has the potential to affect your vibration, your frequency, in the same way. (Don’t try this at home BTW, I don’t want to get letters about flooded speakers. Just google speaker +water +experiment and watch others prove my point.)

So, which songs will make you feel better? Well, different songs have different frequencies, and since we each do as well, it takes some trial and error to figure it out. Some people are highly sensitive to music and are easily influenced by sound waves, while others may have to hunt down the music that will cause a reaction within them.

An interesting thing I’ve noticed is that as I’ve raised my vibration, the effect that certain types of music has on me has changed. Live string orchestras used to make me cry. Something about the specific vibrations of live violins caused such a shift in me that energy had to be released. That no longer happens. Songs that used to take me to a different place the second they came on, no longer have an effect on me at all. I tend to focus on specific songs instead of types of music. The right song can instantly lift my mood, while another may instantly irritate me (who hasn’t experienced that?)

With this in mind, I’ve put together several playlists that help me to lift my mood, get enthusiastic about something, or put me into an ecstatic, bouncing off the wall state. When I’m not feeling quite myself, when I’ve let outside forces affect me vibrationally (happens to the best of us), I can deliberately make myself feel better my choosing to play one of these collections. As long as I’m sure to update the playlists regularly – as my vibration changes, so must the music – it’s a quick and simple way to instantly change my mood.

Do you have a song that makes you feel better? How about several? Why not put them into a playlist so you can deliberately use them to feel better the next time you’re feeling a bit low? Why not play them even if you’re already in a good mood? It’ll give you an extra boost. Try it and let me know in the comments what you think! :)

I was surprised to find a song on Justin Bieber’s “Under the Mistletoe” that did it for me – “Drummer Boy.” I listened to it over and over again – the family even played it at my mother-in-law’s and did a soul train for it as we listened to it on repeat. YIPPEE!!!

LOL. Whatever works for you Liimu! I have several songs that will make me jump up and dance with joy. What’s so interesting is that as I shift my vibration, the music that I respond to keeps changing. I have to totally update my iPod every few months… :)

Huge hugs!

Hey Awesome Melody,

I use Music since so many years to get out unwanted feelings (even when I was not aware of this technique).

Few years back I had to travel for work (which I use to hate). To minimize my negative feeling I use to hear various songs which were there in my cell that time. It helped me then, and it is helping me today when I listen to my favorite Sufi songs :)

This article gave me confidence. Now I will connect to music often :)

Hug Hugs,
Sameer

Hey Sameer,

I’m so glad this post gave you some validation on something you already intuitively knew. That’s pretty much my job: To remind you of what you already know… :)

Huge hugs!

I’ve been on the net trying to find some news bands and uplifting songs.

I’ve always loved alternative music, rock, industrial, some heavy metal, soft rock, jazz… most things that aren’t rap or pop!
I do like some dance and 80s’ pop is the best. I have some singers which are exceptions to the rule of generally disliking pop.

The thing is over the years I still have that soft spot for rock and alternative but as I’m happier, I’m finding alot of it harder to listen to even though it’s still good quality stuff. For example I can’t listen to the Deftones anymore without them feeling like the music itself is piercing my body.
I had to give them up years ago.

Know anything that’s really happy and uplifting without being vapid/annoying?

I’m looking for something a few levels up but not as far as Zippedey-do-da or Justin Beiber!

Hey Kane,

The music I listen to is all over the place. I listen to individual songs, but haven’t really found one current artist where I love all their stuff. I love some of the stuff from the Black Eyed Peas, some of Katy Perry, Gorillaz, Gwen Stefani, Adele, Lady Gaga, Shaggy, Mark Lanegan. Again, not ALL of their stuff, but selected pieces. I also listen to a lot of Vivaldi, and other classical pieces. I discovered Gotye this year and really like several of his pieces.

Sometimes I don’t listen so much to the lyrics, but the music itself makes me want to get up and dance a happy dance. Some pieces I use to deliberately shift my energy to a higher plane.

When I go looking for spiritual pop or rock music, I’m generally less than impressed. I think when someone creates music with the purpose of sending a positive message instead of just getting happy and then being inspired to create music from that place, you can really feel the discord in that.

One song that I really love and that I think has a really high energy is this (not rock or pop):

Oh, and I’ve never actually heard a Justin Bieber song. Yes, seriously. I have no idea what he even sounds like. I will say that his new album was recommended to me by a friend as a great example of high vibrational music, but I have not yet been inspired to listen to it. When I am, I will.

Does that help at all?

Huge hugs!
