Music therapy

I have a rare profession in our country – music therapist. I was convinced that the creators of great melodies are powerful healers who can help a person as well as any famous psychic.

With particular ecstasy, for the last 10 years I have been practicing music therapy, conducting thousands of sessions for adults and children. Music, according to L. Van Beethoven, cutting fire from the human soul, helped me to remove the tragic state, stress, attitudes towards suicide, despair. I managed to achieve a fracture for a number of diseases, to “remove” speech disturbances and deviations in behavior, to eliminate the symptoms of neurological problems.

I practice not only as a doctor, but also as a musician, able to play the desired music on the piano, right up to the violin concertos of N. Paganini. I saw how music had a spiritual and bodily healing effect.

Gradually, confidence grew in me that there was a connection between the preference for a particular color and the perception of music. Moreover, it is not associated with the presence of a musical ear. If a person prefers a certain color, then a certain chord is more pleasant to him than others. The melodies in the key of this chord are especially gratifying for this person and have a powerful influence on him.

PHENOMENAS OF MUSIC THERAPY melodic masterpieces

1) The phenomenon of Catharsis

On a psychological level, music excites a person, causes shock.

Let’s call this state catharsis.

Such music is perceived with keen, special power, causes pleasure, liberation, sometimes happy tears, the emergence of the brightest sensations, images, reminiscent of expressions of fast sleep or creative inspiration.

Catharsis helps to revitalize the creative subconscious, helps to harmonize people, relieve painful symptoms. Color selection after reaching catharsis becomes harmonious.

The face of catharsis is a happy face, filled with the light of a creative, happy fire look. This is the face of a happy person, a person who has found his self-realization in the works. Introduction to the masterpieces of the melody of their psychological level is often accompanied (during a session with closed eyes) the appearance of visual images. This is Churlionis effect, co-creation, the conversation of the subconscious with the highest spiritual values ​​on the same level and in their own language.

We observe manifestations of catharsis – during the Improvisation session, the listener with eyes closed sometimes sees strikingly bright visual images, the tragicly sorrowful mask is replaced by the shine of the eyes, the person experiences creative shock. If the session is conducted correctly, the anxiety is removed.

The selection of works of art that are close to a person, inclusion in a creative game, self-identification with the creators of masterpieces is an unrealized talent. That is what he would have painted, wrote, played, if he could. Such personal introduction to the masterpiece, can remove the chains of negative emotions, release the creative subconscious of a person who has merged with the world of art.

We attach the subconscious to the highest world values, the patient’s emotions are realized in the masterpieces of great musicians who experienced similar feelings.

The music of its level excites a neurotic person, causes shock, we see the state of catharsis.

Such music is perceived with keen, special power, causes pleasure, liberation, sometimes happy tears, the emergence of the brightest sensations, images, reminiscent of expressions of fast sleep or creative inspiration.

2) Caisson phenomenon

In violation of the principle of individuality, the discrepancy between the psychological content of the music and the listener causes painful sensations, the phenomenon of the caisson.

When perceiving music of an alien psychological level, the following manifestations of the caisson are observed, reaching in steps:

– indifference, lack of interest;

– boredom, evaluations “primitive”, “naive”

– ironically mocking perception (laughter caisson);

– denial, negativism;

– emotional and vegetative reactions (cough, restless movements, etc.).

Caisson is a term taken to represent the rejection of a psychological level alien to a patient and his manifestations.

Caisson disease is a condition that occurs in a diver if he is quickly lifted from the depths: nitrogen can be released in the blood and destroy a person. The transition to an alien psychological level is also harmful. The concept of a caisson has a universal meaning in psychological relationships.
