Episode 003: How to Increase Hope and Achieve Emotional Freedom Through Music // Katie Higley

Learn powerful strategies from American Idol Alumni Katie Higley.

After experiencing PTSD from a traumatic car accident, American Idol Alumni Katie Higley explains how she turned to music as a tool to help her overcome her challenges.

 

Katie shares her belief that “The gift of music can overcome so many problems in our lives.”   Her focus is in helping people to develop their own emotional freedom by having them create their own songs, or even singing songs that they have resonated with.  Katie has recently created a ukulele hymnbook for beginners and coaches students in music with her iVibeAlive program with this goal in mind.

 
 

Katie feels that music contains the power of expression.  “When we share that expression of whatever we have in our heart, there are some powerful connections that we can have with other people and with God. When we create our own songs, there is a magic that happens inside of us. Emotional freedom happens when we are free with our heart, and free with giving.  When you experience emotions that are stagnant, they make you feel stuck.”  Katie explains that you don’t have to create music for this concept to work.  You can also listen to it. 

 
 

Listen to the full episode to hear more about an interesting study Katie describes that shows the positive impact it has on people when they sing together in unison.  She will also give you an insightful tip about how you can create a song with any scripture or affirmation. It’s something she has her students do, and it’s powerful!
