Healing with Sound

We are energetic beings. There is no denying this. Our vibrations can be felt by others. We can tune into other's energies as well. When our vibrations are not in alignment with our authentic being we can feel off. This can represent itself as feeling foggy brained, lethargic, irritated, anxious, depressed or even forgetful. There are many different ways to bring one's energies back into alignment.

One of my favorite and quite effective methods is through the use of sound. Sound can alter our emotions, our physical body and our spiritual energies. Shamans have used sound as a tool for centuries. Whether it be drumming, chanting, toning, chimes, singing bowls, or the sounds found in nature, such as waves, rain, wind, or birds singing, sound can be very healing.

When our vibrations are not in alignment not only will we feel out of sorts, but with time disease can manifest. Time has proven that certain tones open specific chakras within the body's energy realms allowing for flow to move more smoothly. Some healers will use specific sound creating tools around the body to create energy, to remove blockages and to initiate flow. These tools can be bells, rattles, drums, even the clapping of hands.

Experimenting with various sounds will help you discover what resonates with you. This can be important at some point in your life when you will need to turn to sound for healing or for alignment of your energies. You may already have an idea of what works for you as you may have experienced a shift in your energies when you have listened to something in the past.

Recently, I discovered Soul Song. I use toning and chanting along with a variety of different sound tools, such as rattles, drums and singing bowls, in my work with others. It helps bring connection where there is an interruption of the flow of their energies. It helps bring calm and peace where there is stress. It encourages harmony in the distress.

While there can be tremendous healing to be found in silence, sometimes sound is the right fit. Connecting with our vibrations and bringing our energies back into alignment can be a powerful skill to have. Knowing what sounds resonate with your body and your energies is important information to have in your self care.

The Unique of You


Society often is uncomfortable with those who do not conform. Conformity creates a sense of stability, order, and known expectation. Yet, if you were to ask anyone are we not all unique, don't we all bring our own personal gifts to this world, or are we not all beautiful individuals, we would get a resounding yes. So how do you thrive and shine within this paradox?

You have tremendous energies that have been passed onto you from your ancestors that shine brightly in your DNA and make you who you are. You carry archetypal vibrations that are as unique as your swirling fingerprints that are part of your beautiful and wondrous identity. And yet, you are encouraged again and again, from a very young age, to conform. You are told how things are, how they should be (if things have gotten out of order) and how you fit within it all. Everything from your looks, your roles, your living styles, or your beliefs are encouraged to fit within this definition of normal, acceptable, beautiful or correct.

But a dynamic force resides within you! It stokes your passions, it tickles your sense of wonder, it plays with your imagination and calls to you each day. This energy is uniquely yours and yours alone! It is the creative ingredient that you bring to everything. It is the powerful voice that you lend to conversations. It is the amazing special touch that you share with others. It is exactly what this world requires of you and longs for you to bring to the day. Your special one of a kind essence is what the Universe has been waiting for!

Conforming does not support this aspect of you. It does not encourage it to grow or expand. Following the standard just adds more of the same to what already exists. It keeps things constant, but it also keeps things from growing, evolving, spreading and reaching, from birthing and releasing....all things that the vibrancy of life needs. All things that you need to be your fullest self. Staying small, silent, and average does not bring your highest self to the forefront. There are times and places for that, most certainly, but it is important to not make that your norm. Find ways to stretch. Explore ways to share your voice. Encourage others to shine bright. Join forces with those who are ready to take on the adventure of newness and possibilities.

As more and more share the unique and amazing nuances of who they are, the more the levels of creative energies rise. Consciousness awakens and change occurs. Amazing acts of healing, teaching, beauty, giving and creating are waiting for your exclusive energy to step forward. Bring it on!
