Sound HealingThe World of Sound Therapy
Deep relaxation is one of the most significant and universal benefits of sound therapy. Sound healing has mental and physical health benefits in improving mood and reducing stress. When we are ill, our cells are out of sync. Sound therapy has the ability to identify these out of tune frequencies and when these sounds, or frequencies, are introduced back into our body, our brain then can send these “in tune”, or corrected frequencies to the damaged cells to help facilitate healing.
Stress – The Silent Killer
Have you noticed that our mind is always full of thoughts? An average person has about 70,000 thoughts per day. Thoughts have frequencies and create waves. They transform into feelings and emotions. When the mind experiences negative thoughts, they create emotional stress due to negative frequencies.
This stress accumulates over time and manifests physically into diseases and disorders. We all know that stress wreaks havoc in our lives, resulting in depression and anxiety. This contributes to all major illnesses in the world, like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, migraine, psychosomatic pains, organ dysfunction, etc. We enter a state called vibrational imbalance.
If the body is the physical manifestation of the formless mind and soul that completes our existence, then it is essential to nourish ourselves at physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels for holistic living and well-being.
Cellular health through Sound Healing isn’t a new concept. Sound has an ancient kinship with meditation and healing. Our Vedic masters, ancient Egyptians, Australian aborigines, Tibetan monks and native American Shamans have used this science of external vibrations to restore the internal rhythms of the body.
From mantra chanting and blowing of the conch to bells or gongs in places of worships, or Himalayan singing bowls, there’s evidence of some form of sound healing in spiritual and religious ceremonies for invoking the divine and warding off negative energies in every culture around the world.
Why Sound Healing?
Our thoughts create a physiological effect in our body. Every thought and emotion has its own vibrational frequency or wave frequency because thoughts are also sound waves. Sound therapy is being used in Integrative Medicine, as the rhythmic sound waves from the healing instruments induce a meditative state in people resulting in a calming state of mind. Studies have shown people to have gone through spiritually uplifting experiences with sound meditation.
