Music and Self Talk
To do self talk, that is, to talk to self, you do not need any sophisticated mechanism. It is happening and it’s happening all the time, inside your mind the way the sun is burning endlessly giving off light all the time.
We all have constant conversations in our minds. These conversations cannot be different from what we actually converse with others around us. These conversations cannot be without background music too or consequence in our life.
Yes, these inner conversations are also not neutral like taste of water or harmonic musical in their oscillations. They all are happing to give us hope, pain, love and myriads emotional transformations.
Most of these inner level, the subs conscious level thoughts and dialogues happen when we are normally alone not crowded with daily mechanical rhythm of life, especially when we are unable to comprehend the circumstances of life.
The silence becomes music of life, existing in quite corner becomes the form of life. Being empty with thoughts and unknown consequences becomes daily dose of musical melody. You love talking to self with silence as background music.
Music plays definitely role in ringing those bells in our life which were silence for some time and the moment we are happy and achieved something in life.
The psychology of music impacts everyone in different ways. If there is a big cinema hall and there are many people listening to same tonal idiom, tempo, rhythm and number of notes the effect on our inner thoughts will be unique from all their music preceptors sitting in same hall.
People suffering from Down’s syndrome and William syndrome can greatly benefit from music, especially children with intellectual disabilities, because music works at the level of our inner self where we talk and encourage or discourage ourselves to take on life.
