My Music Playlists for Healing


I needed upbeat music when I was getting my Chemo Infusions. I wanted my body to direct that Chemo right into my tumor. My body needed to be as strong as possible with a mindset of: ” I am being cured of this XXXX Cancer”. That was my first playlist.

I also had a second playlist when I was being reflective of LIFE. I typically listened to this as I lay on the couch resting after my 3 day a week treatments. It reminded me why I wanted to be here on earth longer. I was not finished doing what I wanted to do. I was not finished creating memories with everyone or even driving them crazy at times.

Below are my 2 Playlists that encouraged me to keep the Faith. Make your own playlist. Music is Healing.
