Music Helps Me

Posted by Parus @parus, Oct 13, 2017

At times music can be helpful. I like the group Anthem Lights…A new discovery for me when I was perusing youtube. A Capella has always been my thing. I love to sing!!!!!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Just Want to Talk group.

For those of you who love music. While I've never watched America's Got Talent, I just saw this Youtube video on another website. It is a nurse's choir. Listen and enjoy!

Music Heals. This is a video about a woman who has carcinoid cancer. She discovered that music could take her out of her cancer mindset and allow her to be involved in healing with music. Please listen and enjoy

@hopefu33250, @parus, @jenniferhumt, @tinyknit, and all…Thank you for this youtube, Teresa. I'm listening to another with piano and instrumental Christmas music as I write. What pure joy in my heart and soul, I played piano from age 7 through college and beyond, for myself and my emotional stability I think, and in church or whenever. Never like this, but it is pure joy for me to sit and play. I still have my childhood piano, but nasty arthritis has taken away my ability to make music at the keys. I can sit for a few minutes and dabble, but then my entire body begins to rebel and the hands and wrists and back start to scream at me. So, I listen to real artists play for me!

Short story: I'm 75 in Feb. When I was 40, I became quite ill and was in a whole lot of body pain, had trouble walking due to swollen and painful legs and feet, covered with sores and bumps, had difficulty breathing, didn't know what was happening. Mayo Clinic was built in Jacksonville, Fl that year. I went to Mayo to a wonderful rheumatologist, I saw a dermatologist the same day and had bloodwork and thus began my Mayo journey. I was diagnosed with a lung biopsy with Sarcoidosis. That was a fairly unknown autoimmune disease at the time.

I spent the next 8 months on very heavy steroid therapy and all that goes with it. The Sarcoid went into remission and has raised its head through the years, but we get it under control with more steroids and I move ahead. Now, I'm back at Mayo for a bunch of stuff and getting all kinds of healing. A whole lot from this wonderful group on connect.

Music and God healed me, using the Mayo system and this doctor.

I was in a lot of pain that didn't respond to meds at that time. I couldn't sleep at night due to pain. I began playing Sandi Patti tapes all night. All night. She sang me to sleep every night. I slept in peace and free of disturbing pain. God used Sandi Patti to touch me, to heal my spirit and body. She has such a remarkable voice and talent. Her voice singing hymns and spiritual music put me in a place of healing and peace. I will always think of her as my guardian light. I tried to reach out to her to let her know her impact on my life, but haven't found a way to contact her. I will keep trying…

Music. I now listen to a full array of music. A Cappella I love and used to sing in college….I'll hear your Anthdm Light group next tonight! Then the nurses. My friends, you have given me a special peace tonight that I truly needed. Thank you. Bless each of you. elizabeth

@ess77, I so appreciate you sharing your health journey and the power of music in that journey. Your attitude of gratitude is very compelling as well. I'm so glad that you found help and hope at Mayo Clinic and also with Mayo Connect!

For those of you who believe in the power of music to heal, I'm sure you will enjoy this article and video about a Mayo nurse who can often be found at the piano in the lobby of the Gonda Building. Here is the link to the article.

I love this piece so much and this amazing duo that I listen to it most every day! I hope you all enjoy it.

This morning my inbox had the weekly McMaster Optimal Aging post, and they spoke about music helping when we have sleep issues/concerns https://www.mcmasteroptimalaging.org/full-article/es/music-based-strategies-improve-sleep-quality-older-adults-3199

Years ago when I worked strange shifts, I taught myself to fall asleep anytime, anywhere, if I had the chance. I still do that. Think doctor's office, on a car ride as a passenger, even at the dentist! There is one CD that imprinted onto my mind as a prelude to sleep, when I had worked all night and needed to get some rest. I have rarely heard that CD all the way through, that's how strongly it imprinted on me!

Music can certainly make a difference.
