If you’re like me, then you know the visceral reaction that happens when you’re in your car and someone pulls up next to you and you can actually feel the vibration (wear this to increase your vibe) from the music: IT’S SUPER LOUD. It’s not pleasant!
Actually, any loud sound can jolt us.
I read somewhere that infants are born with only two fears: The fear of falling and the fear of loud noise.
On the other end of the spectrumm, music with a glass of wine and low lighting, can really set the mood. And of course, a Mp3 player in the gym, is priceless in my opinion.
But what about healing? Can sound really heal us?
So what is Sound Healing?
Sound healing is basically the use of physical sound vibrations for therapeutic benefits. Sound Healing is different among healing systems because we can feel its effects through the vibrations it creates in our bodies. It works to balance the subtle energy fields that run through our bodies via meridians.
The physics of sound plays an central role in how sound healing benefits us. Various sound vibrations interact with our physical and energetic bodies in different ways. Sound can be used to open and expand blocked areas in our energy body or cleanse and release blockages.
Sounds can be used for relaxation or inspiring motivation
Stress reduction is the most simplest and wide-spread result to receiving sound healing. Stress, it seems, is the underlying culprit of many physical conditions and ailments. Stress will melt away with ease when you are immersed in a sea of sound healing vibrations.
Many people, in many studies have also recovered from life-threatening illnesses such as Cancer and AIDS through the benefits of sound healing therapy.
Sound Healing is effective because it influences our emotional bodies as well as our physical bodies. Many people think that emotional imbalances are at the root of many physical diseases, and when we heal our emotional bodies, the physical symptoms then disappear.
Sound and emotions are deeply connected. We all have experienced that good feeling when a song comes on we like.
Also Human emotions have their immediate expression through sound, and it is often the repression of the sound of the emotions that creates emotional blockages. Sound can be used to unlock the blocked emotions and release them with ease.
Sound Healing can be as simple as being exposed to simple sounds, like the Tibetan singing bowls, or as complex as listening to consciously composed sound healing music designed specifically for healing and relaxation.
The sound vibrations are typically produced by sound healing instruments. These instruments have unique characteristics to produce pure sounds, rich in overtones and harmonics, that interact in a positive way with our physical body, emotions, and subtle energy fields.
Though any sound from any source that is created with intention will have therapeutic benefits

2.) Tibetan Metal Bowls
Tibetan Bowls have been used by Tibetan Monks and ancient spiritual masters for centuries. Real singing bowls are hand made, produced with a combination of usually seven types metals. During the process of making the bowls, the monks infuse the bowls with prayers and blessings in the form of chanting.
Singing Bowls produce a basic pitch. There is also a rich variety of overtones and harmonics. Singing bowls are typically played by being struck with a mallet to produce the rich permeating sound. A single bowl will have many varying overtones sound at the same time. It is possible to get them to produce a constant sound, by tracing the mallet around the outer edge.
Tibetan singing bowls can be used for deep relaxation. They also can used for chakra alignment. The sound can take you deep into your body to access your latent untapped power of rejuvenation. Rich in ceremonial tradition, they are a powerful enhancement to personal ritual, meditation, and prayer.
