What is sound?
The power of sound has been an integral part of human civilization for thousands of years. We live in a vibratory universe where there is no such thing as Matter. Everything we sense and feel, see and touch is pure energy. This is of accordance to the Law of Creation.
Mark my words, sound therapy is going to be the next big thing in the future.
Though it’s been known as a powerful healing practice throughout the world for centuries, Western medicine has long considered it to be “fringe.”
That is, until now…
Sound therapy can appear a little weird to some people.
To some individuals, sound therapy can be perceived as 'hype-y' or a little 'out-there'...
After all, some of the methods sound is used are out of the ordinary...
Take sound baths, for instance…
Participants lay on the floor and the facilitator rub a mallet inside bowls of varying sizes to make sounds. Occasionally, the facilitator will bang a gong or play an exotic-looking instrument. And sometimes, they’ll hover over participants, striking instruments right over their heads.
It may seem odd to some people who are unfamiliar with this practice.
But the benefits to this are immense and there are plenty of research to support the effects and benefits.
There are a plethora of knowledge regarding sound healing’s history, the science behind how it works, and all of the peer-reviewed research demonstrating its effectiveness.
And, time and time again—after learning how sound works and what it can do for them—I’ve seen even the most steadfast skeptics become the most vocal advocates.
How Sound Can Activate Your Body's Self-Healing Process
Sound is the conduit that puts your body in its optimal state to allow healing.
You can do this by either using:
- Passive sound therapy (like sound baths or listening to music/nature sounds), which activates your parasympathetic nervous system, making your body calm and relaxed.
- Active sound therapy (like singing, humming, or chanting), which utilizes the sound of your own voice to stimulate the vagus nerve¾the longest nerve of the body. When activated, it can promote your body’s natural healing abilities.
Both of these sound healing approaches work in a multitude of ways to speed up healing, ease chronic stress, boost mood, or clear the mind… just to name a few.
It’s only a matter of time until more and more people discover how sound can help them activate their built-in healing systems.
Remember, you were born with regenerative abilities!
And I’ve made it my mission to educate people about this simple, yet little-known fact.
If you’ve already experienced the life-changing power of sound, I’d love to hear about how it’s helped you. And if you’ve been spreading the word about sound healing, thank you!
