One of the great things about Sound Healing is that you can easily do it for yourself! To begin to enhance your overall health, your mind, body & spirit with Sound Healing:
1. Finding peacefulness and calm
Notice without judgment if your mind wants to wander. Then bring your attention back to that area below your navel.
Take a deep breath in and on the exhale tone/sing the sound OM, inhale again and exhale with OM. Repeat for several minutes keeping your attention on your second chakra
After a few minutes, you’ll notice that you’re considerably calmer. This sense of peace will help you as you move through your day.
2. Changing traffic
Here’s a fun game you play with when stuck in traffic. Pick a lane and envision the traffic in front of you moving as you sing an ‘AH’ I love this practice and do it all the time. As I get focused and sing the traffic begins to move. Then just for fun, I’ll pick another lane and repeat the sound while envisioning traffic moving and once again it begins to move! Ahhhh, so much better than being stressed out in traffic. And you’re helping the other drivers behind you too!
3. Releasing anger
There are also many ways we can utilize sound as a way to work with our emotions. Let’s say you are angry with someone: a boss, a husband, a friend, a teenage daughter/son. Here’s how you can apply Sound Healing:
First, sit down in a chair and begin to allow your breath to deepen. Notice where you feel the anger in your body. It may be in one or more areas. You may notice that your stomach feels tight/rumbly/queasy/acidy, your shoulders may feel tight/achy, your chest may feel tight and your face may be flush. Just notice without any judgment. Breathe a little deeper now……and take another deep breath. You may notice your anger diminish just by deep breathing. Try to breathe a little deeper with each breath. Now either tone/sing or imagine toning the sound Ahhhh, in and out, in and out. As you go deeper with the sound, you can also direct it to those areas you noticed were tight, held, clenched, or angry. Imagine sending the Ahhhh sound into those closed places and continue until you feel those tense areas and your heart softening. There you go. You’ve changed your energy and raised your vibration!
4. Manifesting something new in your life
Perhaps you want to bring something new into your life, perhaps a new job, a raise, a new partner, or a new house. Whatever it is, take time daily to envision what you want and how you will feel when you have it. Once you feel it deeply in your body, put it inside a bubble of sound. Put the wonderful feeling of having it into an Ommm bubble knowing that it is on its way. Knowing and trusting that it’s on its way so much that you can relax deeply. As you feel into that knowingness, feel gratitude arise in your body and thank the universe with an Ommm.
And then watch to see what shows up. Pay attention to see if you want to take any new actions and follow through on any intuitive ideas you may receive. You are being heard by the universe and often it will send us messages, ideas and actions for us to follow through on.
I’d love to hear how you have brought these ideas into your life! Do you have any questions? Write them in the comment section below and I’ll respond as soon as possible! Enjoy the gift of your own voice. Ahhhh.
“What makes us feel drawn to music is that our whole being is music: our mind and body, the nature in which we live, the nature which has made us, all that is beneath and around us, it is all music.” ~Hazrat Inyat Khan (Sufi Master) (1882-1927)
