This Youtube video is making the rounds. I find it another excellent example of Sound Healing with animals. It is being included in our study here of the interspecies connection with sound healing. For another opportunity to put a smile on your face and joy in your heart, watch this video of Cows Enjoying Music of the Utah Jazz Band playing to a herd of cows in Switzerland and their expressions. There have actually been studies on the impact of various types of music on milk production in cows. Rap and heavy metal music appeared to decrease milk production, while classical music improved production. I find that horses and other animals respond similarly to different types of music. One dear friend, Bettine (see joyofmusic.com), goes around the world playing her magical flute to all sorts of animals and observes and documents their responses.
This is an excellent reminder of being mindful of what music we play for ourselves and all our kindred spirits, whether it is in a cow barn, a horse barn, an animal shelter or animal hospital. Healing sounds heal us, disruptive sounds disrupt us. It is as simple as that. It gives new meaning to the cliche, “music to my ears”. Pondering a bigger picture, what if we were more conscious of filling all the world with harmonious, healing music and sounds. Wow, could we all be more peaceful and happy? Perhaps we can begin to try this experiment. What are your experiences?
Blessings of joyous, healing music to your ears and the ears of the world!
