MUSIC THERAPY

IT IS A PROVEN FACT THAT  USING MUSIC CAN CALM THE MIND AND AID IN HEALING THE HEART. 


WHEN THE PAIN WAS SO INTENSE AND I JUST DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF,

I JUST LAID ON THE FLOOR AND LISTENED TO MUSIC. 


SOMETIMES, THE SAME SONG, OVER AND OVER AGAIN! 


IT SPOKE TO MY HEART AND GAVE WORDS TO MY PAIN, WHEN THERE WERE NO WORDS.  


IT WAS A WAY OF EXPRESSING MYSELF, WITHOUT HAVING TO THINK OR FUMBLE

TO FIND WORDS, THAT WERE NONE TO BE FOUND!


I WOULD FIND A SONG THAT SPOKE TO MY HEART AND SOUL, AND CALMED MY MIND,

I WOULD JUST LAY THERE AND BREATHE.


PRAISE SONGS WERE EXTREMELY HEALING.  


OTHER SONGS HAD A WAY OF TELLING MY STORY OVER AND OVER AGAIN.


I AM A FIRM BELIEVER THAT THE BEREAVED PARENT

MUST TELL THEIR STORY 1,000+ TIMES, BEFORE THEY CAN BEGIN TO HEAL. 


I ALSO LISTENED TO MY SON'S FAVORITE SONGS.

IT WAS A WAY TO CONTINUE THE BOND WITH MY CHILDREN IN HEAVEN.  


WHEN THERE WERE NO WORDS, MUSIC WAS THE BRIDGE THAT FILLED THE GAPS.
