The effect that music has on the brain is complex. One of the things I have studied in my journey as a life coach is a technique called brainwave entrainment, or brainwave synchronization. Use of this technique can have a deep and profound impact. The specific sounds used in brainwave entrainment can allow for deeper thought, deeper relaxation, increased focus, and increased creativity. All this without a pharmaceutical "drug" in one's system. Some say that it’s like an out-of-body experience at times. Here is a short video from Steven Halpern that briefly explains how brainwave entrainment works:
This just goes to show that all types of musical sounds can elicit different kinds of feelings and emotions. It can reduce pain, elevate mood, and truly has the power to change the mind. Music is a better drug than anything a pharmaceutical company can create. It is because of this powerful connection that everything I am working towards has to do with sharing music, promoting music, and supporting the artists who create music. I thank God every day that I found a way to live my passion. One of the most profoundly inspiring videos I’ve seen recently is from Kid President on YouTube. He asks the simple question, “What will you create that will make the world awesome?” Watch Kid President’s video here and ask yourself the same question. Music and coaching artists to effectively create and share their music is my contribution to making the world awesome. What’s yours?
