80. When Music is Your Mission — 8 Comments

  1. I am an ex-music teacher. Ex-musician. I went through years of anhedonia.. Among other things I couldn’t bear to listen to music. After much profound healing work, I can recently listen to music again.

    As a child I slept with my toy music box instead of my teddy. I loved music so so much. As an adult I went on a long journey of learning music without any support, despite an endless path of terrible teachers, I got to a good level. But the whole journey itself was traumatising. The world of music is full of very narcissistic people. If you are not very healed and aligned and supported, you’ll be at their mercy. I have very mixed feelings about music. It’s often used by performers in ways that are not very high vibrational or magnanimous.

    Yet I’d love to feel the joy it used to give me. I’d love to play again without people interfering with me, competing with me, ruining my joy..

  2. Have been doing the MIR method for about 2 months. Tomorrow I am playing my first open mic in many years and have been so fearful and nervous about it. This post could not have come along at a better time. And the video is incredibly inspiring, made me cry! So many thanks for sharing this healing modality with the world! Many blessings to you!

  3. In this day and era of technology and global economies we need to educate our children in ALL areas, especially creative expression in a positive way! Yet, unbelievably the first thing cut in a school curriculum are the arts, music being the first. However, if ‘those who cut curriculums’ studied true brain development would find music is brain compatible and helps with math skills, logic, and physical development. I commend you and your article about music, and how magnificent Emilie’s letter about music is—harmony in positive thinking is what I see here, oh, yes, a coincidence, but divine in nature! MIR-Method changes the world one life at a time. Thank you.

    • Dear Nancy,
      Thank you for your response! Goose bumps! It is SO true: music develops the brain in a GREAT way. Recently we could read scientific studies that prove it finally. No doubt about that. When they cut the creative classes in our school, we took our children out and put them on a school with lots of movement, creativity, singing and music. They are thriving. Wish there would be many more schools like that.
      Thank you for your passionate respons and the encouragement you give me too!
      Greetings, Mireille Mettes

  4. I sing wherever I go and I travel a lot, both for my Faith, I am a Baha’i, and I do housesitting for people, so I have had the opportunity to sing with many different choirs. So many incredible moments that I would never have dreamed of, like travelling to Ethiopia to sing, singing at Carnigie Hall, New York, and at the Choral Festival at the Baha’i House of Worship, Chicago.

    • Dear Sheila,
      Thank you for living such a wonderful mission. No doubt, you have brought lots of healing to all of these people. Thank you!
      With love,
      Mireille Mettes

  5. Wow… This text is just incredible…

    I started MIR method 1 week ago (thanks to the Magazine Happinez).

    Until 2013, i was a music teacher and a flute player.
    Since 2013, I’m working for a theater company, as the productions organizer.

    And I always dreamed to work for humanitarian.

    Since few weeks, I’m quite lost about my life, my soul mission. I feel that my current job is not the good one. And that the past one wasn’t too.

    So, since i’m using the MIR-Method, finding my mission is my main purpose. And yesterday, before sleeping, I ask again about it.

    And this morning, I received your newsletter… About Music Mission…

    My other big life dream is to become a conductor… (actually I’m conductor right now, for amateur wind orchestras). And to work with “Playing for change” organization…
    And you are here…

    So, ok… I’ll send them my curriculum, and write them again…

    Incredible… Definitely incredible…!!!

    THANK YOU!!!!

    • Dear Emilie,
      How wonderful! Yes, please send them your curriculum! Join in and support them with what you know. Or start your own project. Anything is possible. How amazing and coincidental that your question was in this article. Lovely! The flute is my instrument too, by the way.
      Please keep on playing and conducting and bringing the wonder of peace through music to the world. Thank you for all that you do!
      Greetings, Mireille Mettes
