What triggers you when you hear your favorite song?

Learn how music can heal your past and create a safer place for inner growth.

There is a powerful chemical reaction that occurs when listening to the combination of words, moving rhythms and melodies! Enter the Music Therapy Dept!

Here’s our top 5 ways to tap into music therapy!

1. How to Create Vibrant Energy

Nature + Music + Movement = 🤗

When the beat drops, time stops and “flow” can begin.

Working out with music improves our mindset, performance, and puts us in a better mood. Music has the power to energize you to keep going. A high-energy groove helps you stay focused and empowered. So get out of the house and create movement through exercise by:

  • Walking, hiking, biking.
  • Running, swimming in open water.
  • Strength training at the park.

Crying helps us to release the sadness and fear inside.

The more we can express our feelings, the better our temperature gauge will be. Embracing your pain through powerful music can help you express your true emotions and help you move from pain to progress.

Music can transport us back in time to our most cherished moments. As we release suppressed energy, new doors open for inner growth and fruitful relationships.

3. What’s More Infectious Than Smiling?

Laughter is a powerful medicine. It draws people together, changes your mood, and relieves tension. It also helps you forgive sooner.

Try watching funny cat videos on YouTube with background music added for comedic effect. Laughter makes our day brighter and happier. Watching these kinds of videos can make us laugh even more when you share it with a friend. So invite them over today and heal together!

4. Learn How to Stay Calm and Grounded

Breathing properly is essential to life.

Deep breathing clears our minds from the daily noise and trains our body to have better sleeping patterns.

Music can be a great part of your life which provides comfort day and night.

Try adding subtle music the next time you relax or meditate. Realign and breathe deeper, slower and more natural. This will help you stay focused and alert.

5. How to Connect with True Glory

Learn how prayer allows us to deepen our relationship with God.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33

When we sing our prayers we are able to connect with God in a new way. Giving thanks and glorifying our original creator is one of the most powerful ways to cultivate true happiness and healing. Perhaps this is your sign to get connected through a Bible based church or through your community.


Congrats on getting this far! Now is the time to cleanse your heart and mind. How will you use the power of music to improve your mood? I’d love to hear from you.
