When you’re ‘doing the work’, your mind, body, and spirit must be in harmony to lead the life you want and deserve.
You probably already meditate often and have many tools that help you live in the present moment, reconciled with the past and unencumbered by what the future holds.
But how much do you know about sound therapy?
Are you aware of its power and how much it can help you to fully live to your potential?
Everything in the universe vibrates and is woven from different frequencies and vibrations.
Albert Einstein stated, “in the universe, everything is vibration.”
Information and energy travel through sound. It has the ability to penetrate matter and move molecules.
Sound is energy
Did you know we hear a sound not only with our ears but also with every cell of our body?
Sound therapy spreads vibrations from the sensation of hearing to the whole body.
Research shows that all frequencies above 11 Hz (hertz) create feelings of agitation and dissatisfaction. On the other hand, frequencies below 7 Hz develop a sense of relaxation and well-being. The most favorable frequency on Earth is 6.8 Hz.
Did you know that the pyramid in Giza has a constant frequency of 6.8 Hz, and scientists still cannot explain the reason for this phenomenon?
Sound healing throughout history
Knowledge about vibrations and frequencies and their impact on humans has been used since ancient times. Most cultures have used the power of sound for healing purposes.
The sounds they made with different objects (things) cleaned the space of negative energies.
One of the first sound healers was the Aboriginal people. They combined the didgeridoo sound with very effective breathing methods.
In ancient Greece and Rome, sounds and music were used as therapy to reduce anger and aggression.
Pythagoras, playing the lyre and the flute, is responsible for music that had the role of medicine. It is believed that these are the beginnings of sound healing.
Today, sound healing is officially entering medicine and education due to its simplicity and efficiency.
How exactly does sound therapy work?
When we are in harmony, then we are healthy and happy. But when our original frequency is disturbed, we become dissatisfied, unhappy, and sick.
The secret lies in the connection between our senses and the element of water.
Water makes up 60-70% of the total mass of a person, and water transmits sound and vibration exceptionally well.
For example, when we throw a stone into a lake, concentric waves will spread across the surface and activate every water molecule.
A similar process is activated with sound healing when sound vibrations travel through our body in concentric waves.
Matt Omo, a leader of the sound healing movement in Australia with over 20 years of experience, says,
“Our thoughts are vibrations (sound), our emotions are sound, our body is, in fact, sound. Therefore, to truly work with the depth of sound in a healing way, we must access all aspects of ourselves. Once we do, we can create harmony and healing on all levels through AWARENESS + INTENTION + SOUND.”
Benefits of sound healing therapy
The idea behind sound healing is those specific frequencies can help encourage the body’s natural healing process. Sound healing can also help to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also help to improve sleep, reduce pain, and boost immunity to improve overall well-being.
Many people who have tried sound therapy report feeling more relaxed and stress-free after a session.
How to incorporate sound healing into your life
There are many different ways to incorporate sound healing into your life. One way is to use sound meditation.
You can find guided sound meditations online or create your own. Make sure to choose a comfortable place to sit or lie down where you won’t be interrupted. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Once you’re relaxed, focus on the meditation’s sound. Let the sound guide you into a deeper state of relaxation.
You may also want to try using a singing bowl or other musical instrument for sound healing. The bowl’s vibrations can help relax and rejuvenate the mind and body.
You can also use natural sounds like waves crashing on the shore or birds singing in the trees. Allow yourself to be transported to a peaceful place and let the sound wash over you.
If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and improve overall well-being, sound healing can be great.
