What is sound HEALING?
Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health.
As human beings we do not just exist as a physical person, we also have an energetic energy that surrounds and penetrates the physical body and this is called our energy system. The energy system consists of our Aura or the Human energy field and our Chakra System. The balance and well being of this energy system reflects how we are on a physical level.
As we go through life we have experiences that create emotional reactions, like the break down of a relationship or the death of a loved one. These experiences will create problems initially in our energy system, and if the emotions continue for some time they will eventually manifest on the physical body as dis-ease.
With each Chakra responding to a different musical note, using sound we can work on clearing blockages and re-balancing those energies using sympathetic resonance which will retrain the unbalanced areas back to their perfect vibration.
We are surrounded by sound all the time. The birds singing, wind rustling through the trees. The sound of the waves crashing and rolling, laughter. Traffic. A car alarm. A phone that keeps ringing. A crowd of people. Notice how you felt when you read those different things.
Some sounds make us feel nice, others don't.
We also use music in every aspect of our lives, it can heighten our mood and it can also comfort us when we feel down. Ever had a breakup and put on sad songs to cry along to? We sing to celebrate – Christmas carols, Happy Birthday, Auld Lang Syne. We sing to say goodbye at a funeral.
We “feel” the music within us.
Music and sound are not new concepts to us, using them in a therapeutic healing way is relatively new but has been going on for centuries.
