Modern world is a world of rapid advancements where rat race has become a part of our life. Globalization with this unavoidable rat race is causing all round physical and mental challenges resulting into stress, tension, trauma as well as ailments. Thus with increasing modernization and invitations, it is a paradox of life that number of desease and ailments are equally increasing. The obvious reasons for this situation are imbalance between mind and body. The major causes of human deseases are maninly two – physical and mental. A majority of deseases are caused by mental disturbances. Mental disturbances are invisible and are ignored till they lead to physical illness.
An alternative therapy for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health in the new millennium is “Music Therapy” . The human voice carries with it the Divine energy and when we add our intention to use our voice in service, it acts like a laser. And if we use the energy of sound properly we can create positive charge in every area of life. Music has both positive and negative effects. Positive music produces beneficial effects and is physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually uplifting. Negative music invokes emotions such as depression, frustration, anger, fear and distressing states of mind such as mental imbalance. The simplest form of music therapy is probably a mother singing to put a baby to sleep. Why does it work? Because the mother cares. Her heart is open and she is linked in love with her child.
