How to listen to songs?

Focus on one point and ignore the others. 

When most people listen to a song, they are easily attracted by the lyrics and ignore the beauty of the song.

Can try:

Roughly divide the song into three layers: vocals, heavy drums, and others.

Deliberately avoid listening to human voices, pay attention, and distinguish subtle sound effects, such as common musical instruments, running water, snapping fingers, like a microscope, suggesting that you are immersed, and dissecting all the phonemes you hear.

Shield the meaning of the lyrics, do not think, just immerse yourself in the voice, distinguish the voice from becoming larger and smaller, and from the transition, to hear the breathing, choking, self-breathing, which syllables are strong in tone, and which syllables are in clear tone.

Listening to music thickly is no longer a river flowing at both ends, but a lake that surrounds my mind. All sounds are at the same time, how the human voice entrains emotions, when the melody and drum beats are intertwined.

Listening to the loop body, the smallest loop is in beats, and more in segments. For example, every four eight beats will repeat a boom, such as the snap of the end of each lyrics, you will find new details at any time.

If you do the above points, after about a few eight beats, you will obviously feel that the time is pulled back to the present, and everything you hear is unusually clear, as if the time has slowed down.

The above is just an introduction, to explain the principle.

For the convenience of understanding, imagine that your attention is a pool of water flowing through your body.

The total amount of water is constant, more deposited in the brain, less distributed to the trunk.

You are the water itself, you can control the direction of water flow in a short period of time, and most of the time the water will stay in the place you have been accustomed to for a long time.

The water is spread in the body, just like automatic driving, it can barely cope with the daily life without concentration, but if the water is concentrated in the brain for thinking, thinking and fascinated, it will weaken the body's feelings and even forget about sleep and food.

It will also automatically deposit, and you will always be confused when you walk on the road.

Water accumulates in different parts and has different effects, which can be roughly divided into two categories: perception and cognition.

▪️Perception
▫️Visual:
External vision: object shape, color, light intensity, etc.
Inner vision: closing your eyes can reproduce and reorganize all scenes, including dreams and obscenities.
▫️Hearing
1. External hearing: all human voices, natural sounds, etc. you hear.
2. Inner hearing: giligili eye repeating in my mind...
▫️touch
1. Body touch: sore, numb, and refreshing
2. Feeling of space
3. Emotional perception
4. Smell, taste, etc.

▪️Cognition
▫️Logical thinking
1. Meaningful active deduction or ingestion of information
2. Cluttered and meaningless flashes of consciousness
▫Recall (ie reappearing inner perception)
▫Imagination (that is, the secondary processing of inner perception)

Water staying in the cognitive area consumes much more brain power than perception.

Commonly known as mental fatigue, it is deposited in the cognitive zone for a long time, repeatedly recalling expectations, thinking about imagination, and consuming a lot of willpower, but the perception zone is excited, and the physical and mental disconnect is the source of fatigue.

Focusing on the perception zone will add a lot of willpower.

Without the concentration of water flow, that area will not evolve. Concentrating on imagination and memory, lust and brain will become bigger, concentrated thinking, and logic will advance by leaps and bounds.

Concentrating on the sensory area, such as somatosensory, the physical strength and athletic ability are significantly improved, and the concentration of audiovisual will develop human potential.

It's like dripping water through rocks. Everyone's volume is different. Some people are still in stagnant water, while others can flow freely in perception and cognition. They have extraordinary literary and athletic abilities, and their brain thinking is also very clear.

The principle is this. Behind each field has its own brain area, which is a mutually reinforcing process, such as:

Trained to paint and improved visual ability, so I became more good at fine art, and accumulated a wealth of visual sense elements in painting. If I changed my career to study beauty makeup, there was limitless potential.

Dancing exercises the sense of touch of the body, turning to learn to skateboard, it is easy to maintain stability.

Reading a lot of books, accumulating whimsical ideas, and introducing imagination into the visual and auditory senses, the photographic works are insightful.

Perception is the first-hand raw material, while cognition is reprocessing.

When human beings are used to thinking, it is easy to ignore the most focused pleasure.

Regardless of yoga, meditation, Tai Chi, or even classical Qigong and Zen, the essence is to focus on the senses through attention, in exchange for the space for the brain to rest.

People who engage in art and sports seem to have aura because they already have a way to keep their brains alive.

The listening training I mentioned at the beginning is to let people who don’t have a hobby of perception have a way to rest their brains.

This kind of knowledge rots early, but only a few people benefit from it, and it's useless to just be reasonable.

I list some ideas that can train the senses in practice:

▪️Left hand x eat

There are two benefits of using your non-dominant hand when eating:

First, when eating changes from instinctive reaction to a little laborious, you will focus more on eating itself.

People don't waste food more than thinking too much when eating.

▫️Use your left hand to pick up rice, and concentrate on experiencing muscle slowness and picking dishes.

▫️Put the dish in your mouth and close your eyes, stir your tongue, the sweet and sour on the tip of your tongue, chewing very slowly, distinguish the hotness of potato chips from the hotness of spicy bars, to distinguish the sweetness of cheese and oats, and the light aftertaste of the slow chewing of rice fragrant.

You will fall in love with eating alone.

Potato chips can be bitten with the front teeth, and the melon seeds are loud and rhythmic.

Carefully distinguish the food: temperature, dryness, wetness, softness and hardness, top stimulus, aftertaste, it is a combination of several flavors.

After you become proficient with your left hand, you accidentally unlock new neurons.



▪️Keen x touch

Physical training, if you want to strengthen that part, limit it.

For example, practice push-ups, from hands to one hand to three fingers.

The training of the senses is the limitation.

There are countless ways and several ideas:

If you like to run, why not try one-leg jump, two jumps and one leg change to five jumps and one leg change, and finally you can run for a hundred meters on one leg. Not only is training fun. It also makes normal running like a gallop.

If you like basketball, you should practice your left hand with your right back, hold your right foot and turn around, and develop a variety of suitable obstacles. For example, you can deliberately practice a hundred single-leg stand-up jumpers, so that you can practice all the temporary reactions that may occur in the game in advance.

Like walking, you can experience the difference between using your knees to lift and retreat and normal walking. You can also try to walk without making a sound. You can straighten your knees and walk on your ankles.

And another tactile training is called black technology.

Are you afraid of itching, pain, cold, or heat?

If you are trained enough, your ability to control your body will exceed common sense, which requires gradual progress in the system.

Take pain as an example, pinch yourself.

First pinch normally to experience the slight pain of being pinched, pinch your arm, and slowly increase your strength.


Don't resist the struggle when you feel the pain! Don't avoid diverting attention either! Instead, perceive carefully! Relax your breath, focus on the painful part, quietly perceive the pain, and disassemble the pain: Is it a bit numb, there is a kind of squeezing heat, we have always escaped when we feel the pain, but have tried to distinguish the pain carefully? What's it like?

Identify and perceive the details of the pain, take a deep breath, imagine that the breath blows to the pinched position, and quietly accept the pain, it will gradually become a strange sourness.

Once you no longer resist, increase your strength, feel the acceptance again under the new strength, and so on.

Just an example, you can try to practice receiving itching, you can soak your hands in ice water, and you can use it to press your legs.

The ability to control the body will eventually spread to the psychological resistance to stress.

The principle is to perceive and discern, accept and accept, and experience it carefully, and it feels very refreshing.

There is another way of thinking, relying on imagination.

Lao Mai's bullet time in GTA5 is this feeling.

Or the words of the headmaster of the Dragon Race Lyange·Time Zero.

No matter where you are now, you start to imagine that the time around you suddenly slows down. You see the scene becoming bright and delicate, and every sentence is slow and clear. Everything you hear is even the sound of sparrows mixed with cheers. Captured by you, you can feel the touch on the soles of your feet, and the feeling of breath flowing through your nostrils when you breathe, as if you can turn your emotions into a ball of fire, like opening the pores of your whole body, and the breeze blowing through, you are using your whole body The upper and lower skin breathe.

You really live in this moment, this second, joy flows in peace. Play Pop it toy.

Such is the case with the breeze blowing on the hills and the bright moon shining on the river.
