Another way that people’s energy fields are healed is by the vibrations of music. It is amazing how the vibrations of music can change your mood. Think about how happy you are when you are driving down the road, listening to your favorite song with the volume cranked up. You have changed your emo- tional state. On the other side of the spectrum, a melancholy tone can convey the feeling of sadness. Music is uplifting to the soul and soothing to the heart! The vibrations of musical instruments and song have an energetic effect on our souls, the harp in particular.
When music is played on the harp, the vibrations of the harp strings go into the body and balance an ill person’s frequencies. Carrol McLaughlin, an award-winning profes- sor and healer, is in charge of one of the largest harp depart- ments in the world. The renowned concert harpist explains that when someone has an area of weakness in their body, it means that it’s not vibrating at its full frequency. She con- ducted a healing experiment at a hospital’s ICU unit. She played her harp for a number of patients. The result was a 27 percent reduction in pain without any change in their medi- cations. It has been documented that she played for a man in a coma and that after seven minutes he took off his breath- ing mask and said, “Thank you.”7 Another patient was ready to go into hospice, but after the patient heard Carrol play her music, the doctor canceled the hospice plans because the patient’s vital signs had improved dramatically.8 We should all have a harp that we can play to keep us healthy and vibrant!
An International Harp Therapy Program that trains and certifies its practitioners to heal with the harp is established today.9 Now that’s amazing! This demonstrates the miracu- lous healing that occurs when your energy fields are out of balance. Music is healing to the soul for all of us. I know that when I listen to an upbeat song on the radio, it makes me feel energized and happy. The vibrations of music have been healing us for centuries and continue to do so today. Did you know the harp is mentioned in the Bible sixty-six times?
Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing him a new song;
play skillfully, and shout for joy.
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
