The Power of Music over the Mind

“Music is a safe kind of high.” __Jimi Hendrix

There is a power in music that can connect with the listener, in a way that no other source can. Music has power over the mind.

Artists are able to stir emotions with their music, through the state of mood feelings:  There are many genres of music to choose from. Each piece of art has its own mood.  In the quote below from the bible, this artist mood is sad. In the next quote, the effect of the artist, with this listener, is that high mood, Mr. Hendrix was referring to.  Music is like a medicine. We are addicted to music, because we need it. It can bring relief to the aches and stressful situations that life brings. We live in a world of music. There is sound and rhythm everywhere we go!

The Sad Mood:
 “My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.” Job 30:31

The High Mood:
“When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. __Henry David Thoreau
