Music Is Psychotherapy!

Within each of us is a positive emotional flow state we’re instinctually driven toward. It continually tries to get our attention. If it’s consciously perceived it manifests as authentic feelings of joy, creativity, love, personal power, spirit, a sense of freedom, etc. If it’s not in our awareness it manifests as a problem—depression, anxiety, addiction, etc.—which disturbs us in order to force a process of change that can connect us with this deeper self. One way we instinctively try to access this flow state is through music.
