The answer to balancing your brain chemistry is the matter for catalogues upon reams of data and research. Why so much information? Because Brain Chemistry and its links to depression, and subsequently artificially creating a re-balance and reordering of neural transmissions are a matter for innumerate debate, opinion and pharmaceutical intervention. Of course a blog post wont even scratch or blemish the surface of this subject. But the point I’m trying to illustrate here is that happiness and its polar opposite depression, have a direct and impacting effect on your life. Direct and impacting actually barely serves justice for the overwhelming importance of balanced, positive and happy brain chemistry.
Abundant Brain Chemistry
It is generally accepted that depression is the scourge of modern civilisation. It is generally believed and accepted that our brave new world is the harvester of the gloom and impending doom, that affects us all at some juncture in our lives. In Tribal communities in what we would presume as deprived or third world conditions in modern society, experience ridiculously low levels of stress, which are comparable to cultures and descendencies before rain forests of data where collated. In these circumstances of low levels of stress and depression, No synthetic interventions were available but brain chemistry was both balanced and abundant.
So we are the victims of our own evolution. This in itself is an entire encyclopaedia of discussion, even volumes. But lets just settle on the fact, that we have created this reality. But if we revert and take historical leaves out of our ancestors books lets see if there is a non synthetic therapy for happiness, be it standalone or in a supportive role. Well there is!
It exists, Its alive and well and has in one form or another been with us since day dot. It not in tablet form, not oral suspension. No prescription is needed and its accessible to us all. Even if you are a tribal community, blissfully living grid free, you can manufacture your own medicine. Yes! you can re-wire your brain chemistry…..starting NOW! With Music. Yes that’s correct. MUSIC! I can almost sense the doubt and derision.
Test your Brain chemistry
But try this experiment. It will take approximately take ten minutes of your day. The benefit of this time investment can be euphoric, settling, joyous or just an altered state of brain chemistry that will adjust your perspective on the world. In an enhanced form, and as formulated and specific therapy. Lives can be changed! We can ALL benefit from this experiment and I both challenge and urge you to JUST TRY! The following 5 pieces of music I hope will create a broad spectrum to cater for a vast array of musical tastes. Hopefully one will trigger the necessary reaction.
1. Step out – Jose Gonzalez. A real feel ‘mother nature’ all around anthem. 2. Im Alive – Michael Franti and Spearhead. A happy joyous ‘Life is great’ whistler of a tune. 3. Sweet Harmony – The Beloved. A reflective, soft harmony of love and mindfulness. 4. Anybody There – Rainbow A moody, atmospheric soul searcher from the rock/metal genre. Finally some rousing choral pomp on a classical theme 5. Anvil chorus – Guiseppe Verdi
What is of great importance and to maintain focus and lose yourself in the mental conjuring of your brain chemistry. Is to seek some solace. Be it by way of headphones, or a space where you can reflect and express the emotions and feelings that spill over during the process. If time permits, if a piece suits your neural mechanisms, repeat the process to reinforce your feelings. Beyond your consciousness the emotions evoked will embed themselves in your neural network and your brain chemistry has begun to change. By the conclusion of the process you will have a slightly altered awareness and change of perception.
