You may be wondering what I am babbling on about… Sound Healing, you ask?
On the weekend, Mr B and I went to experience being healed with sound through Bodhi J. It was just what we both needed…
What is Sound Healing?
Sound Healing is an ancient form of healing, using sound to create an environment in which to heal physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. It was designed to have a measurable effect on the organs in our body as well as the brainwaves which control how we feel, function and respond.
This holistic approach to healing is usually administered by Sound Healers. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t learn how to do this yourself. There is plenty of information online about Sound Healing.
How does Sound Healing work?
The power of sound and vibration from particular tools and instruments are used to restore one’s body, mind and spirit. The sounds and vibrations alter brain states, which enable shifts of our consciousness. They also work with the energies in the body to balance them.
Every organism has a vibrational rate and every object has a unique resonant frequency. When something in our bodies is out of tune, it will affect the whole body. It is through the principle of resonance, where sound is used to bring the body back into a state of harmony and balance.
Tools used to administer Sound Healing
Sound Healers use a range of tools to play enchanting sounds and to create vibrational frequencies which work with the energies in the body.
In our particular session, our sound healer, Julian, played the following instruments:
- Singing bowl
- Something that sounded beady but mimicking the sound of rain (I know, great description!)
What did we feel?
When Julian played a tune on one of the singing bowls, I felt like I was in a deep trance like state. Very relaxed and I was very conscious and awake but just so so relaxed, felt like I was floating.
Mr B has had a full on couple of weeks with work and this experience melted the stress away and left him feeling light, refreshed and energised!
What are the benefits of Sound Healing?
There are many benefits of Sound Healing and they include:
- May help with physical aches and pains, headaches and migraines
Sound Healing is also said to help with insomnia, various immune system issues and emotional disorders.
