What Is Sound Healing?
Sound healing refers to a practice that uses vibrations from instruments such as Koshi chimes, gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, and tuning forks in order to relax your mind and body. When our bodies and minds are relaxed and we are in-tune with ourselves comes the potential for tremendous healing, including anxiety and insomnia relief, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, and more.
A Brief History of Sound Healing
Sound Healing is an ancient tradition that has been used for centuries. Sound is an inherent part of all religions and cultures and has been used throughout the ages to expand consciousness and connect us with the divine. Sound healing is the act of playing specific instruments with the intention to heal. You do not need to be a musician to practice sound healing. Intention is the most important component.
How Sound Healing Works
While sound healing therapy techniques vary, all of them involve the application of sound waves and vibrations to the body through the use of instruments. These sound waves and vibrations help to facilitate natural shifts in our brainwave frequencies using entrainment. Entrainment is the natural process of a rhythmic pattern, which induces other organisms to fall into the same rhythm. A great example of this would be when we hear music and begin to tap our feet or dance to the rhythm.
Entrainment occurs when a stronger vibration causes a weaker vibration to vibrate in resonance with it. We can see this in pendulums that start out at different rhythms and then become entrained to one rhythm.
Sonic entrainment can affect our energetic state. Our energetic state may then lead to physiologic transformations. We might feel stressed and then we get a headache. That would be undesirable. But the reverse may also happen. Some news might cheer us up and then we feel less tightness in our shoulders or our headache fades away. Sonic entrainment has the power to affect us emotionally which then influences us on a cellular level. We know that stress or pessimism can wreak havoc on our immune system. We can balance out these negative effects and return to equanimity through sonic entrainment, where we introduce harmonious frequencies to our body, recalibrating our entire system.
The intention is where it all starts. As long as we maintain a positive intention the sound bath is a success! The other main ingredient is intuition.
Intention itself is a frequency. The key to an effective sound bath is holding the intention with 100% awareness the whole time. This can be challenging because thoughts might pop into our heads, we might get distracted by a noise or object. If we notice a distraction, the first step is to meet it with kindness. We can even choose to congratulate ourselves for noticing the distraction and then, with love, move back to the intention. We might find that we need to do this often at the start, and that is ok. As long as we do it with awareness and love we are succeeding.
