Many people seem to forget one of the simplest forms of magic out there. The magic of music (sound). There are many different ways that you can use music in magic. Just think of the way you feel when you listen to your favorite song. Music is a form of energy which in essence is what magic is all about. Using energy to change things.
When you want to increase your energy many people use loud fast beats. When you want to decrease your energy many use slow quiet beats. The more even the beats the better music balances energy.
Also different sounds relate to or remind us of the different elements. When a spell or other working requires the use of a certain element you can tap into it with different sounds. Dripping, rushing or sloshing noises are good for water. Crackling, hissing, popping noises are good for fire. Rustling, blowing or a quiet whistling for wind. The element earth can be represented by drum beats, and rumbling sounds. For the element spirit the sound of a singing bowl works well.
When you seem stuck in a certain mood, you are having trouble meditating or you find it difficult to focus on or visualize something, turn to the magic of music. Using headphones can help you drown out other disturbances. Playing it without headphones can effect the energy of the whole room.
Also the use of Tibetan Tingshas is helpful. They are used for meditation and balance. They can also help in cleansing crystal and disrupting energy being sent to you. The link below explains them some.
These are just my opinions and the effects of sound vary from person to person. Below are some links on youtube that help me with my magic. I encourage you to explore whatever sound or music you can and keep a record of what it makes you feel. The magic of sound lies within us all and everything around us. Love and Light Blessings : )
