Are Your Music Choices Helping or Hurting You When It Comes to the Law of Attraction?

I have found in recent years that you have to be really careful what kind of music you choose to listen to, because there's an awful lot of momentum in songs that can get the wrong emotions flowing. A song can pull you out of the doldrums, or it can plunge you into despair. Since the law of attraction responds a lot to your emotions and overall feelings, I tend to think to that in order to get past a heartache, it may not be the best idea to listen to sad songs about failed relationships and broken hearts, as it keeps those feelings flowing. It's a much better idea to focus on neutral songs that uplift you and eventually -- when you're ready to open yourself up to love again -- love songs, especially those about commitment and long lasting love, and feel the feelings that they evoke in you.

One of the things I did on my last job was listen to a "soulmate song list" that I had stored on a now-defunct website called Grooveshark (which was a lot like Spotify, but simpler to use in my opinion.) It was mostly made up of love songs and a few that were just plain feel-good tracks. It's something I plan on creating and listening to again during the day once my new company expands into the office space next door to them and I get a desk or cubicle of my own. Off the top of my head, some of the songs I had on this playlist included Chicago's "Love Me Tomorrow", "My Kind of Lover" by Billy Squier, "(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story" by Shirley Bassey, "Your Love is King" by Sade and even "Ain't No Other Man" by Christina Aguilera.

I do think a person's music choices says a lot about them and when I look back on people that I've known there definitely is a correlation between their personality and view on life and their taste in music. I guess it shouldn't be surprising that people I knew that struggled with depression tended to be fans of musicians that wrote songs that generally were bummers to listen to. 

There's been numerous studies conducted about how music creates chemical changes in the brain, so it only makes sense that listening to the right music is going to have an adverse effect on your mood. It's a wonderful, flexible tool to have at our disposal and help things keep moving in the right direction as far as the law of attraction is concerned, so keep the right music playing!
