Music & The Brain…powerful Truth.

leave a comment »

Every time you’re listening to Music, whether is with or without lyrics, you are creating something. That which you’ve create has the power to fuel your soul continually at greater levels than just words, whether positive or not. That piece is going to be in your brain and off course can be redeemed if what you have created wasn’t so great. If it was positive would then still infusing greater amounts of endorphin as you engage to it when need it. We must paid attention to what we are creating, because it works fine also when the influence is negative, not that powerful, but works anyway.

Music is a great tool and goes to greater levels of influence as you grow in life. Music brings hope to the soul by infusing the right mixture of sounds and lyrics. Paid attention to what you are listening to, to what you are creating, to all you agree to…even far from your ears, then to your brain, thinking, hopes, words. All counts, all counts.

Listen to good stuff!!! (It makes you smarter) Lest Go!
Lest build something Greater!
