Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Hazrat Inayat Khan ‘The Mysticism of Sound and Music”
There was a time in India when music was used for healing. It was healing for the mind, for the character and healing for the soul. For it is the health of the soul that brings health to the physical body, but healing of the physical body does not always help the soul.
That is why the material science of medicine can do good for some time, but does not entirely suffice the need of the patient ….if a cure is brought about outwardly, while inwardly the illness remains, sooner or later the illness which is buried in the body must come out and show itself…… there are healers who by playing an instrument arouse that certain feeling in the patient which has become cold and that deep feeling which was buried begins to come out. It is really the old way of psychoanalysis.
