My story with music

Hey pal stop! Before you entertain this whole idea of going on taking pills after pills till your last breath. I want you to stop for a moment. I want you to open your mental doors to the world of music.


I am not sure if you love music or hate music. No matter what, let me tell you music changed my life. By the time I was 4 my ears got tuned with the tones of piano. There my story with music began.


I crossed every tough path that needs one to walk on if one desires to play a piano. Same with all the Indian instruments from Tabla to Santoor. Interestingly this opened a path for me to play for the Guinness book of world records in 2016.


Fortunately, in 2017 I discovered that there is an option to graduate with music, psychology and english. Nevertheless my life was graced by the presence of Light. I met Light - well I call him Light and few other people too.


Light is not attached with names or anything literally. When we met for the first time, we sat on a digital piano and Light asked me to join in that unplanned flow. I never knew that what was happening at that moment was nothing but the purest form of healing.


I knew that music is therapeutic but had never experienced it and that moment I was just swimming in the musical ocean with all the healing energies pouring from every single note and silence.


I felt real delight within me with Light. Eyes were full of unstoppable tears. Yet my smile was glowing. Today I completely realised what Light meant. “These are tears of gratitude.”



Music as a therapy

Since 2018 parallel to my graduation I was miraculously graced with Light’s infinite knowledge on healing sounds, music therapy and sound healing. I realised the difference between an artist and a therapist.


Music for entertainment is created by artists. But music as a therapy is altogether a different journey. You may have experienced in your life that you go on listening to certain music repeatedly and certain music once or twice.


When it comes to music therapy, it is very different from general music that we listen to for entertainment. When I started co-creating music therapy with Light, I learnt that this process of creating music is just like creating a medicine.


One has to come out of all kinds of negative thoughts and emotions, ego has to be transformed and infinite patience has to be established. I still remember during my learning process to create music therapy, my mind used to be completely thoughtless in the presence of Light.


The way one medicine is created with lots of research and testing, music therapy is also developed with a high level of concentration, 100s of hours of listening labour, selecting and editing healing sounds.


Music as a therapy is a powerful and innovative approach for helping people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities find relief from physical, mental, and emotional conditions. It has been utilised as a form of treatment for centuries, with the deep understanding that music can be used to help heal both body and mind.



How does music therapy work?

If you remember the story of Tana-Riri you will know how music therapy works. Tansen was considered as one of the most eminent singers during the rule of King Abkar in India. That time ragas were created based on time and for healing purposes too.


Many ragas were created for entertainment purposes however, some ragas were purely created for healing purposes. When Tansen wanted to show his power of singing, he sang fire raga and he manifested fire. However, his entire body was on fire.


That time Tana-Riri were called and they sang rain raga which brought that fire under control. So music therapy works at every level of the body, mind and emotions. That is why music therapy can be used for all kinds of diseases including physical, mental and emotional.


From the scientific view, when you listen to music, your brain releases chemicals called neurotransmitters, including endorphins and dopamine. Endorphins are the body's natural painkillers. Dopamine is a chemical that plays a role in how you experience pleasure, motivation and reward.


The release of these neurotransmitters can lead to a pain-killing effect. Studies have shown that music therapy can help people relax as well as improve their moods and make pain more tolerable.


Music therapy can also stimulate the release of endorphins, which are your body’s natural painkillers. This means that listening to music therapy you like can distract you from your physical pain and even relieve it temporarily.
