music ethereal astrologyMusic is an extremely powerful tool in affecting our moods and this can be seen in a variety of different ways especially when it comes to our concentration levels. There is no doubt in my mind that we have a deep connection to the spiritual world and that sounds directly affect our brain activity. We are very complex beings and live our lives in such a rush that relaxation seems to be a distant idea instead of daily practise.

I have had an Asian tamil astrological reading before and comfort is essential when undergoing such an experience. I have always found that there is a deep energy in the universe that surrounds us all that one can feel when you undergo such spiritual practices. These states of energy enhancement can occur when actively stimulated and music helps this. The spiritual element to our humanity is truly a science that has not been given merely enough credit or research.

Vedic music is based on the Hindu Veda texts and has been around for a very long time. It has and is always sung as a musical chant. These chants are sung today exactly the same way as they were centuries ago and have never lost their healing abilities. Music can definitely be used as a Vedic astrology aid. The harmonious tones and pitches can stimulate a feeling of complete calm and relaxation in a client.

Slow organ music or sounds of tranquil places in nature can also induce a state of complete relaxation and comfort in a client during an astrological reading. They are also used in yoga classes or meditation practise to stimulate slow breathing and peace. The atmosphere you begin to generate will be a positive energy as you feel more open minded and prepared for the outcome of your reading. This will be appreciated by your client. These sounds of nature audio tracks are often played to students while they are studying to assist learning.

Robert Monroe is a true pioneer when it comes to the study of how music can affect our brain waves. Working in the radio industry for over 40 years, he started to realise how sound affected the ways in which our brains function. The Monroe Institute was then born to further develop the studies of such sounds and is still around today. These are known as binary beats and are very beneficial to us as it allows our brains to function in one consistent way through being exposed to different frequencies of sound. The science is there to show how powerful sound is to us.

Relaxing and calming music and chants can definitely be an aid in astrological readings. It could even be one of the key factors in helping the client create a calming atmosphere. The spiritual journey and that of our souls love for music fall hand in hand. You cannot have one without the soothing effects of another.
