November is Posi Music Month at emPower Music & Arts, and not a moment too soon, considering the current political environment. They invite you to take the "Posi Music Challenge" by listening to only positive music for the month of November and see how your life changes for the better!
And to back up their challenge, they offer two free music downloads every day for the month of November.
You can't lose anything but your negativity.
The emPower site notes:
In an article recently published by the Alban Institute entitled, "We Are What We Sing", Charolotte Kroeker says, "The past few years have brought us new awareness of the power of music . . . Neuroscientists explain that music is fundamental to our brains and that music communicates the emotions and ideas that are the building blocks of human nature. " (Read the article here (link is external))
So if the music we listen to is the building block of our very natures, then the idea of "Change your music, change you life." takes on a very literal meaning.
Singer/Songwriter/Laughologist, Greg Tamblyn calls most of the music we get fed from the mainstream music industry "whiny victim love songs". In fact, as a public service, Greg has created a list of The (New) Top 10 Whiny Victim Love Songs from his "Analog Brain in a Digital World" CD. On this live cut Greg says, "Listening to music with new ears I found songs masquerading as love songs that are really about taking hostages."

Posi Music Month, which began November 1, is meant to raise our awareness of the messages we are getting from the music we are listening to, and to not only remove the music with negative, judgmental, angry or victimized messages, but to begin to feed yourself music with positive, uniting, life-affirming messages.
If nothing else, after 30 days I guarantee you will begin to notice songs with less positive messages. Warning: Side effects of a Posi Music diet may include sudden bursts of compassion and optimism and elevated self esteem.
emPower Music & Arts also hosts the annual five-day Posi Music Festival for music directors, artists and fans of positive music. Held in Tampa, FL, from February 23 -- 27, 2017, it includes nightly concerts, songwriting school, workshops and keynotes.
