When you want to hear it, make yourself suffer by listening to something else first, so that your desire to hear it gets stronger. You'll train yourself to accept the music as a part of your identity. Limit yourself to one listening session every day to give yourself something to look forward to. I hope this is of assistance.
According to Dr. Honig, because music is so closely linked to our emotions, the song you're listening to might be helping you get through a difficult period or simply coming in touch with what you're experiencing. But, aside from the emotional component, some songs are simply catchy, designed to keep you listening to them for the rest of your life.
The fact is that no matter how hard you try, you can't stop yourself from listening to a song you love. But this doesn't mean you should let it get to your head. The more you know about why you listen to certain songs repeatedly, the better able you will be to deal with those feelings and thoughts.
Sometimes we listen to songs because they remind us of someone or something from our past. Maybe the song reminds you of a friend who has since passed away, or maybe it's the singer's voice that brings back memories of your father. No matter how small the connection may seem, these songs help you feel less alone in your grief or pain. And that's exactly what you want when you listen to sad songs - you want to feel less alone.
Other times, we listen to songs because they give us hope. Perhaps the song gives you strength before a big exam or meeting, or perhaps it helps bring up feelings of happiness from your childhood. Either way, songs can have a powerful effect on your mood, even if you don't realize it at first.
Try it if you can't recall experiencing sensations like these. Look through your playlist, and while listening to a wonderful song, envision something you want, a goal you desire, experience the sensation, see the life as if you already had it, and those feelings will return every time you listen to that song, and... GASP! It can be done!
The secret is within the song. When you hear a song that makes you feel good, dance, sing, or simply just vibe out to, you're giving energy to that song. And so, by associating yourself with positive songs, you're going to attract more of what you want into your life.
Think about it this way: Your body is a vehicle for your mind. If you drive an old car around town, you're going to get stuck in traffic too. You need to use technology with our modern times; you need a smartphone, computer, etc. However, if you drive around in a classic car all day long, you're going to feel nostalgic when you turn on your radio and hear Sting or Queen, and realize that you're the one stuck in traffic because there's not enough room in the road for both you and your phone. Manifestation works the same way. If you focus on negative thoughts, you'll attract more negative things into your life.
