Unlocking the Power of Music & Mindfulness: Insights from Dr. Joe Dispenza's Progressive Retreat.

A couple of weeks ago, I attended Dr. Joe Dispenza's retreat on neuroscience, meditation, and the psychology of change. I experienced the most amazing music and gained a much better understanding of the wonderful connection between art practice, a constantly changing brain, and maintaining healthy brain activity. This connection is fostered by the constant creation of new neuronal connections through the use of vibration! Let me share some of these learnings with you.


  1. Your personality creates your personal reality. If you want to change your environment, you need to become the person who would live in that environment. Music allows you develop:


  • Practice and Persistence: Learning to play an instrument requires discipline and patience. These traits, developed through regular practice, can spill over into other areas of life, fostering a personality that is diligent and resilient.

  • Goal Setting: Setting and achieving musical goals, such as mastering a difficult piece, teaches the value of persistence and incremental progress, shaping a personality oriented toward growth and achievement.


2. The same thoughts and the same feelings create the same life. In other words, if you want to change, you need to change your thoughts. Music can play a significant role in changing your thoughts, overall mental state, emotional regulation, and the practice of mindfulness.


3. Fall in love with the unknown instead of being afraid of it. Music evokes curiosity and wonder, encouraging listeners to explore new sounds, genres, and cultural expressions.


4. You cannot solve a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it.

The formula for change is through altering your internal state. Meditation and mindfulness allow you to rewire your brain and change your energy. Music profoundly impacts our emotions. Listening to certain types of music can help us move out of negative emotional states (such as stress, anxiety, or frustration) and into more positive, relaxed, and open states of mind. This shift in emotional state can help us approach problems with a clearer, more creative mindset.


5.Embrace judgment with compassion. People's judgment often reveals more about the person judging than the one being judged. These judgments are reflections of their own internal states and limitations. We project our internal emotional and psychological states onto others, often revealing our own insecurities and negative patterns. Music with introspective lyrics can prompt us to reflect on our own thoughts, behaviors, and judgments. This reflection can lead to greater self-awareness, helping us recognize when we are projecting our own insecurities onto others.


6. Growth and comfort do not coexist. In other words, if you are comfortable, you are not growing. Engaging with music, whether by listening, playing, or composing, allows us to express emotions that we might normally suppress. This emotional exploration can push us out of our comfort zones and lead to personal growth.
