Music is a big part of life, whether it is music that one listens to at the gym, on their way to work, or in the background of a film, music can change moods, tell a story, and inspire creativity. Music has touched cultures around the world since the actual dawn of time, and yet what was only recently discovered was the manner in which music can affect the body and mind.
Many people find music healing. It is an expression for all humanity, something that people everywhere are touched by no matter where they are from. Music is not only a beautiful diversion, something to appreciate, but it reduces stress, changes mood, accesses different states of mind, develops the brain, and raises states of consciousness, all of which can be useful in regular meditation.

Listening to a special Valentine’s Day music set enables people to draw on old memories based on the neurological patterns of rhythm and sound that remain within the brain core for an extended period of time.

The music which people enjoy listening to on Valentine’s Day can actually tell quite a bit about their personality. For example, those who are fans of classical music are typically introverts with high self esteem and creativity. Those who are fans of opera are often gentle and creative, with high self esteem. Those who enjoy jazz music are outgoing, creative, and have high self esteem.
