What Is Sound Healing?
Cultures the world over use sound to attune to, invoke, and transform consciousness. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings. Indeed the most modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature. This is in line with age old mystical thought of most cultures, which often alludes to the vibrational nature of Creation. The Hindus have a saying, "Nada Brahma", which means, all is sound, or all of creation is sound. They suggest that the primordial sound of manifest creation is the sound of "Aum", or Om, and that if we were to attune to the creative spirit, we would hear this sound. The Judeo-Christian culture might say, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1)," thus also tieing together the nature and power of sound with Creation. Other cultures have stories stating that the Creator had a thought, spoke the word of that thought, and Creation of that thought sprang forth from that word into manifestation. There are numerous theorems stipulating the melodic structures of the universe, from the spin of the planets around the sun, to the sun around the galaxy, to the spin of electrons in our body, and the structure of our DNA. Our modern music is based upon these principals derived from Pythagoras and others.
Whatever one's beliefs,
we all know the power of the spoken word, of music, of chants and sung melodies,
can move us into ecstatic states of rapture or deep states of despair.
There is an inherent potency to the very nature of the sound itself, and
its emotional content, which can be amplified or enhanced by the spoken
or sung verse. While so much music in western culture has moved more
into the secular arenas of entertainment, music in many cultures has historically
held a deeply sacred space in the hearts and minds of their peoples, used
as a catalyst to deeper insight, wisdom, transformation, or growth.
Sound Healing is the intentional
use of sound to create an environment which becomes a catalyst for healing
in the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual aspects of our being.
No matter what techniques are used, sound is the current carrying the creative potency of unconditional love and grace from the subtle to physical dense realms. By attuning to and sounding these "sound currents" and coupling them with our own clear potential, and intention, we amplify their force, or voice, opening to and carrying aspects of the sanctity of creation into our being, into our environment, into the Earth, and into the consciousness of others. This assists others to align and move into deeper relationship with that which we each hold as sacred (in whatever form that speaks to us.) By grounding and "anchoring" those energies into our body, our consciousness, and into the Earth, we energize and charge these vehicles of which we are stewards (our bodies, our consciousness, the Earth.)
Blessings. And, Good Soundings!!
