While we all want to experience a deeper peace in our lives, most of us have little time to practice spiritual disciplines.
I’ve found one formula to be so simple and effective that I heartily recommend it to everyone. I call this method the Magical Playlist. In essence, the Magical Playlist is simply an assortment of your favorite, most heart-oriented and meaningful songs conveniently placed on one playlist on your digital music player or Smartphone. By having a playlist (or two) of all your favorite songs, you can easily have access to deep feelings of love and peace. Your personal favorite songs have the ability to move you into your heart, uplift your spirit, and help you feel a depth of peace. In my own case, I originally created two magical playlists. On one are all my favorite instrumental songs. I use this playlist whenever I don’t want to have to engage my mind in listening to lyrics. It’s amazing how, after hearing just one of these songs, I enter into a totally different mood. On my second playlist, I have all my favorite heart-oriented songs that contain lyrics I particularly like. Often, I’ll listen to one of these songs whenever I desire to feel peaceful inside, or as a way to get me in the mood for meditation.
For many people, music is an easy and amazingly effective way to become centered.Of all the possessions I own, the music I carry in my iPhone is most treasured. By listening to these songs, I have almost immediate access to any feeling I want without any cost, and no known side effects! In making the playlists, I looked through all the songs I own, and carefully selected the ones that have always had the most impact on me. Recently, I even created a couple of playlists of my favorite rock ‘n roll songs. It was a fun process.
