For those suffering from deep emotional pain expressing that pain can be difficult. A unique meditation technique is to imagine the sound of your emotions. When we are distressed, depressed or emotionally drained, meditation can help. But perhaps you have not thought to imagine a melody to describe the way you are feeling at the moment.
With practice this is a relatively easy trick to perform. Maybe you already know a song that makes you feel better when you are feeling down. Rather than literally listening to this song, try imagining it with mediation. Feel how it plays in your mind and how your emotions are affected by it. Don’t be surprised when the song evolves into something completely original. In this act you have composed an original piece of music in your mind.
Knowing how to read sheet music is central to getting this composition out of your head and into the real world. Do not take this lightly. This composition is a real representation of the emotion you were feeling. Name the composition according to the emotion you were feeling and keep it in a safe place.
Music is a powerful expression of emotion. Knowing how to write and play music is an effective way to overcome emotional issues. Some believe that within every person is a specific sound. Knowing the instrument that produces that sound is key to selecting which instrument we should learn to play. The sound of the emotions you hear in your mind may be that of a piano, a guitar, a horn or even a drum.
There is an inherent peace that comes with striking the emotional chords of the mind. The music you create is a unique expression of you. Mentally playing out the music of how you are feeling can have a calming effect even if you do not consider yourself a musically inclined person. Learning to play your chosen instrument can also have a calming effect. Expressing that music physically, even if all you can do is hum the notes, can be a rare gift to yourself.
