Music is energy. Depending on the type of music that we listen to, is what we will experience. Music affects our emotions, if we hear sad songs, it declines our mood, and the opposite is true. Music is powerful. This weeks treasure is all about Music.
I have to admit, sometimes I just prefer to sit in a quiet room, no music, no television just pure silence. But, throughout the years I have learned the importance to fill my soul with beautiful, uplifting music. I can’t tell you what’s my favorite song, or group or genre. But I can tell you that I enjoy anything that calms me and allows my creativity to rise. I listen to Beethoven, Vivaldi, Soft Rock, Mantras, and 80’s music.
