Music encourages me. Music heals me. Music is an integral part of me and you. Music is sound that travels throughout the body; it has been arranged by many people for thousands of years.
Most music that you come across expresses art, culture or a statement. It is also used to praise gods or serenade loved ones.
Music can be an instrument of soul and physical healing. Of course, everyone does not use it for these purposes, but you may want to consider listening to more music.
Behind the Music
All living organisms have a ‘beat’ and music does, too. When you have certain physical or emotional ailments, you become off-beat. Music can help because each musical note has a healing effect on certain systems of the body.
If you consistently listen to certain songs or notes, it can assist in bringing harmony back to your body. When all the notes that make up who you are, are in tune, your body emits a sweet sounding symphony.
Most people who utilize this method call this music therapy.
Music therapy is actually referenced in the Bible a few times. One instance of this is in 1 Samuel 16:23. Whenever King Saul was troubled by an evil spirit, David played his harp. The evil spirit departed, and King Saul’s soul was refreshed.
Thousands of years ago, Egyptians played music to help ease the pain of child birth; you can see a study on this, here. Hippocrates also used music to heal physical ailments as well.

When it comes to music & soul healing, I’ve realized that a lot of music can move or affect my soul. This can bring balance to designated areas of the body as it is intrinsically connected. But only music done unto God can bring true Healing to my spirit, soul & body. This could be done by the songwriter (of course). But this can also be done if the music lends itself to interpretation.
So What Type of Music Do You Need?
For healing, you may find that some holistic doctors only recommend listening to relaxing music, such as classical music, jazz music or sounds of nature — for example. This is encouraged to help your heart slowdown, which will put you in a more relaxed state. This will help you fight off heart disease, digestion, and other stress-related ailments.
While relaxing music is beneficial, rock, rap or even pop music could also be healing. When you listen to these genres of music, it may still stimulate you — mentally and physically. For one, you may unknowingly start to exercise. And depending on your situation and song, upbeat music can uplift you by offering confidence, cognitive nimbleness, encouragement or reflection, which can be healing to your whole trinity when done unto God.
