Working On Us Week 9

As life would have it, I have missed a few weeks of my friends Working On Us series but not this week!!! Beckie from Beckies Mental Mess is one of the most supportive bloggers in the mental health community. She shows her support through comments and her words of encouragement have lifted the veil of gloom for myself many times! If you are not friends with her, I highly recommend finding a way to be!


Prompt #1 Questions:

  • Have you ever received music therapy as part of your treatment? If so, what kind of music was introduced to you? Unfortunately, no.
  • Do you listen to music ( if/when) you meditate? If so, what kind of music do you listen to? I have not found a way to integrate music as a part of therapy as suggested by a professional. I do, however, listen to music all the time.
  • If you have never tried music therapy as a treatment, what types of music calm and/or mellow you? It really depends on what I am going through. Sometimes it is some heavy metal, sometimes it is Florenece and the Machine, others times, some good ole trap music 😂
  • Do you believe music helps everyone and there is really no use for therapy in this regard? I think music is the road that leads us back to our true selves.

Prompt #2 Music Selection:

Select 2 music video’s that help you and your mental stability when you listen to it. Also, describe how those songs make you feel?

  1. Aww, Candace… That was the sweetest intro I ever read about my blog and myself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you are one of the kindest people I know. God Bless, You!
    I never had music therapy myself. However, I did have art therapy which played very soothing music during the session. Honestly, that is where I found how I enjoyed meditation music, not just the voices instructing one how to feel, but the music itself. I play in just about every day, while I write/read.
    Other than that, I tend to listen to the Eagles, Kansas, Moody Blues, etc… Music that the lyrics speak to me. Some music, in fact, allows me to remember certain aspects of my life in which I suppressed memories.
    I agree with you, Music leads us to really understand our true selves.
    Thank you so very much in participating on “Working on Us” Week #9, Prompt #1. We all appreciate your insight.
    And, thank you again, for your kind words.
    Love you, Chickie!!! 💚🎶

    1. I totally relate music to my life’s moments. Music has such an impact on us and it is a constant in our home. 💕

      I only speak the truth. Sometimes bluntly, sometimes softly. You as person inspire me. Our stories are too similar for you not too.

      1. I can accept that as a valid answer, and most certainly can understand how the beat and rhythm can uplift you. Every so often I’ll listen to Jazz… I do enjoy it, but it’s not a full-time thing I listen to. Classical music is my thang, that and rock. Oh, yeah, and ’80’s pop songs for sure. LOL! 😉
