Sound & Your Body
Your body is a walking symphony of pure musical mastery made up of atomic material, water, and bone—all resonant conductors of sound. Your organs are singing their own tune, in perfect harmony with the whole. In fact, our cells are hard-wired to synchronize or entrain with the vibratory systems that exist around and within us. The only thing that gets in the way of this beautifully attuned harmonic machine is the understanding of how to consciously use sound and music for spiritual awareness, physical and emotional health, learning and productivity.
When We Fall Out of Tune
We are human. We can easily (and sometimes often) fall out of tune with our unique natural harmony, and unless we find tools to bring back the music, the body’s song is sour, dissonant and disruptive. In other words, we feel lousy.
The impact of tone, sound and music has been widely researched, and that scientific exploration is ever expanding. Still, there are some things we already know as a general observer that sound, tone and music can change our mood, awaken a feeling and touch our spiritual core…without lifting a finger. So let’s start there. The door we are opening here is one of HOW. Let’s start from where you are and with a beginner mind open to the practical possibilities that sound can restore and transform your day to day life…one tone at a time.
With focused use of sound, language and intention (all things I cover in my year-long Sound Healing Certification Training) we launch vortexes of energized subatomic particles into the atmosphere. Previously blocked energy begins to flow and magic occurs, and we begin to witness thought becoming form. Vocal sound energy coupled with Crystal sound energy is a profoundly direct, effective, and efficient process of energy recalibration, one that creates a healing resonance or harmony throughout the whole body system.
By engaging this practical art of authentic expression, you synthesize psycho/emotional/energetic aspects of Self with the field of possibility.
SoundShifting uses sound to create a new point of attraction as a gateway to the mystery, mysticism and the universality of sound. Within the authentic Self, your body, mind, breath and being become a reflection of Source. And your open resonant tone is the light upon your path of Awakening.
Once upon a time a bowl was singing, and they say the song came out of Singing Bowl. She came to bring the voice sound of language to all creations. No one knows how long ago it was. They just remember that she made time from song, and time became the circle and the square and the spaces inside the lines of the circle and the lines inside the square. She made them to be invisible so she could fill them with the Intelligence of Knowing.
—Joseph Real, SOUND: Native Teachings + Visionary Art
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
