The benefits of positive thinking and positive attitude are well documented. Researchers continually find that people with positive attitudes are happier, healthier, and live longer than those with negative attitudes towards life.
Affirmations are thoughts repeated over and over in our heads. By continually repeating an affirmation, it becomes embedded into the subconscious mind and eventually becomes the reality of the thinker,this is true whether these thoughts are positive or negative.
Lyrics of catchy songs are repeated over and over in our heads and would have the same result as affirmation. Many of today’s songs have great tunes, but the lyrics can be negative. One has to wonder about the potential damage caused by some of the lyrics that children are listening to within the general media – Songs about depression, suicide, violence, gangs, etc.
If 4,000 children are learning and singing songs about peace, joy, love, harmony and other positive messages, what kind of a difference could that make?
Surely this can go a long way to negating these other negative messages.
The lyrics of One Big Voice are carefully chosen with this in mind.
