Sound As Healing
"If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, vibration" Nikola Tesla
Sound is part of our everyday lives. Frequency, vibration, sound. All create their own unique imprint on our psyche. Trains, traffic, the sounds of a city and the sounds in nature all bring about a different response in each of us.
Daily, we are manipulated by sound and frequency in the media, such as commercials, tv shows, etc. Music in a movie can bring up emotions such as rage, fear, repulsion, joy, sexual feelings, even a feeling of safety or security. These responses can all be brought forward in us by the manipulation of sound, frequency or music.
If we can use sound to bring up certain emotions good or bad, even trigger memories, why not use sound to heal?
Sound healing is as old as the earth herself. Tribes of people have used sound to tell stories, to ward off evil, to honor nature and bring rain or abundance to their people and their land, to welcome life or to accompany it into it's next journey, even to heal the sick.
As a Shamanic Practitioner I often use sound in a healing session. Singing bowls are used in my work, crystal and metal, but I also incorporate other sound instruments, tuning forks for example. These tools are tuned to a certain frequency to bring about a particular healing response in the body, body the physical and the energy body. Drums, rattles, toning or humming are methods I use to bring balance to the body with sound. The music I play during any session has a special resonance to take you into a deep state of relaxation and surrender.
When our body, physical or energetic, develops a discord in it's frequency, sound can bring everything back into balance. This can be as extreme as illness or as mild as anxiety, worry or fatigue. Used correctly it can even push out low vibrational energy, filling that space with a new vibrational frequency, thereby bringing healing. You will notice this in the way you feel physically, but also in how you think, how you perceive the world and how you respond to and walk in the world. You will know there has been a shift within you.
So come, find a place where you can experience this vibrational shift, this re-setting of your frequency. Allow yourself to be taken away and returned with a new vibrational frequency. Make some time for your own personal sound bath and let your healing begin.
