Publisher Description

This book will utilize one of the greatest artistic phenomena as a coping and healing tool in your powerful journey to mental wellness. You will explore the melodic meanings of some of the best music of our time while applying their themes of love, empowerment, sadness, reflection, anger, and hope into your plan to improve your life. Music has the ability to motivate you to achieve your goals, soothe your greatest moments of sadness, calm your heightening moments of anger, celebrate your greatest achievements, and open your mind to healing and rejuvenation. Music can also evoke powerful emotions; it can fuel our anger, make us laugh, provide comfort in distress, and sometimes be so beautiful that it makes us cry.

Music is the auditory bookmark of our lives. Every milestone in your life can probably be noted by a particular song. Rhythm-based listening therapy can have profound effects on the brain, helping to activate and create new neural pathways, thus improving brain functioning. This can be especially useful in people struggling with depression, trauma, and anxiety. Music is one of those amazing things of our world that transcends time, cultures, religions, and age. It allows you to identify feelings, put words to those feelings, give a beat, tone, pitch, rhythm, or melody to allow your soul to transform an introspective emotion into sound. In its many different forms, music has the ability to pierce the soul, touch the heart, and open the mind to many aspects of life. This book will explore the genres of R&B, jazz, country western, classical, hip hop, rock, pop, trap, instrumental, and gospel to aid in identifying emotions, application of coping skills, and facilitate journaling your healing experience. Music gives the human existence a colorful guide of its highs, lows, and the beautiful experience of living life as only you can. Music is special. Music is powerful. Let it guide you on your wellness journey starting NOW....
