“The brain that engages in music is changed by engaging in music.” ~ Michael Thaut, Professor of Music and Professor of Neuroscience at Colorado State University

music solutionWe all know, on some level, how essential music is to human existence. We can recite instances when music has evoked powerful memories and emotional responses in us. Even if our involvement with music is only to the extent of listening to the radio now and then, to the more obsessive playing of our CDs, iPods and MP3’s on a constant loop, it has a major impact on the quality of our lives. Further up the scale, (sorry!) amateur musicians find joy and fulfilment from the pressures of everyday life by playing an instrument, and the more gifted of us make their living from bringing this lofty form of entertainment to the masses. Then there are those who specifically use the medium of music…

mental health quotesMusic As Medicine – Mediate Body, Move Mind & Rejoice Spirit

You know it intuitively: add music to relax, celebrate, share a moment, reminisce, delight your spirit. It’s a universal pleasure – and something more. The use of music for therapy and stress-reduction is on the rise.

Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, for instance, found music therapy reduced the average length of stay in the neonatal intensive care unit for premature infants by three days. Also, an article in the British Journal of Surgery discussed the benefits of “music with/as medicine” during surgery for both surgeons and patients. It improved surgeons’ speed and accuracy, increasing the patients’ pain tolerance and even stilled the heart to allow for more effectively and less costly cardiograms.

Throughout the United States a burgeoning recognition of music as therapy can be found in nursing homes, care centers, schools and wellness and health care facilities aspiring to…

Garnet

Garnet

Garnets have been widely known for thousands of years, and it has long been known as the warriors stone, as soldiers from the world over wore or carried this gem as a talisman against death and injury. But it was also said to bring victory, peace and tranquility, as well as healing injuries by stopping the flow of blood. Ancient medical men used to place Garnets inside of open wounds to stop the bleeding and assist in healing.

It is said that Garnets are a type of Karma Stone. If it is given as a gift, it is told to grant affection and loyalty. But when a Garnet is stolen it is said to bring terribly bad luck to the thief until it is returned to it’s rightful owner. It is believed to bring great success to the trustworthy businessman, especially the bright green varieties. Yet the unscrupulous best beware of a Garnet that loses it’s luster as it means danger and disaster.

Garnets hold not only the power to protect its wearer from negative energies, but to also deflect those negative energies back to their origins. Which is particularly useful when one is present within a situation and may be the brunt of gossip or lies, even negative remarks. If in possession of a Garnet, hold it between the perpetrators and oneself, or simply visualize one in between, this will not only create a shield but deflect. The energy rebound will likely go completely unnoticed until they suffer the result of their own negativity. It is a psychic shield in crowded places or at any time one is feeling vulnerable.

The ancient stories speak of a lantern made of Garnet, and that Noah used it in order to steer his ark through the darkness of the rainy nights. Many other travelers and explorers have worn Garnets for protection as they have long been considered talismans and protective stones. It was believed that Garnets illuminated the night and were able to keep the wearer safe from evil of any sort. Modern science has said that this proverbial luminosity of the stone was caused by the high refraction of light…although the magic of the original lore is much more interesting.
