The World is Sound, the World is Dancing with Music
Sound is the primary Creative Force in the Universe. You have probably heard the phrase, “In the beginning was the word,” for many of the world's religious texts agree that it was 'sound' or the 'word' which created the Universe. Everything in the Universe is made up of vibration and each unique vibration or frequency emits some kind of sound.
Shamans worldwide, Buddhist Monks, the Egyptians, Australian Aborigines and most ancient cultures hold sound to be sacred. For thousands of years, Sacred Sound has been used as a means to heal, transform and to enter into altered states of consciousness.
“In ancient times music was the foundation of all the sciences. Education was begun with music.” - Cicero (106-43 BC) It is thought that in order to understand the world, we must understand the basic principles of music and vibration.
Our entire being perceives vibration. Scientific research is finally catching up to what shamans and ancient priests have always known – that not only is everything within the whole Universe made purely of sound/vibration, but that it can bring fundamental changes to both the physical body, and the invisible energy fields of the aura, chakras and meridians.
Vibration is perceived through our entire being - our bones, skin, vital organs, eyes and in every single cell and molecule. As we begin to experience sound with our whole bodies not just our ears we can begin to understand the power of vibrational frequencies.
Sound Healing is one of the oldest forms and most natural forms of healing known to our planet. The power of sound can restore one’s mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance. The harmonic vibrations from Sacred Sound have a deep penetrating effect on the receiver, promoting healing and well-being. This is not just an auditory experience, during a Sound Journey it is like receiving a full body massage. Most people fall into a deep state of relaxation. It’s a portal and pathway to meditation. The sounds act as the focal point, reducing and eliminating mind chatter, leading to a release of deep rooted tensions and emotional blocks. Many people emerge from the experience feeling lighter, more in balance, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Even when working with an individual crystal singing bowl, the song it sings has a powerful means of entraining and harmonizing brainwave patterns. When playing alchemy crystal bowls we allow the frequencies and pulses of sound waves to slowly entrain and relax our brainwaves and in turn our parasympathetic nervous system boots into action to help the body enter into its natural healing mode. These experiences vary from person to person from a bodily sensation to an emotional release, an epiphany or even entering into a state of pure awareness.
