Sound healing techniques
For centuries sound healing techniques have been used by cultures like the Aboriginal peoples in Australia, the ancient Greeks and Tibetan monks. Simply, sound therapy involves using sound vibrations to relax your mind and body and is a practice that uses vibrations produced from sound. Vocal or instrumental-like gongs, Tibetan singing bowls and tuning forks can be used in order to relax your mind and body and re-align your energetic system. Sound healing techniques can be used to re-align your body and energy system. Sound therapy techniques include Binaural Beats, Solfeggio Scales, Gongs, Crystal Singing Bowls and Tuning Forks.
LEARN ABOUT THE SOLFEGGIO FREQUENCIES
10-minute introduction to healing frequencies
This short introductory video made by the Nature Healing Society gives a clear outline to the Solfeggio Frequencies and their benefits. If you are new to this subject you will find what is outlined pretty mind blowing when discovering how frequencies can alter our brain states and ultimatley, our spiritual and energetic health.
14-minute sound tuning fork session
Solfeggio tuning forks produce deep, earth reverberating tones with beneficial overtones when activated. This Chakra Tuning session plays each of the seven tones (frequenices), six times each, with each tone resonating with our own chakras. If you are new to sound frequencies, it is perfectly normal not to enjoy the tones but it’s surprising how quickly you will get used to them with practice.
CLEANSE YOUR AURA
30-minute Tibetan Sound Healing meditation
This Tibetan healing sound video cleans the aura and space and removes all negative energy. This is an extremely relaxing sound which is beneficial to listen to in the morning or evening when you are winding down or before starting your day. Can also help as an aid to sleep.
Singing bowls have been used in Tibetan culture since the 12th century. These metal bowls come in different sizes and each one produces a deep sound that relaxes and heals the mind. Because each bowl produces a unique vibration that works on separate parts of the brain, different sized bowls are often used together.
This particular type of sound healing has been found to reduce stress, anger, depression, and fatigue.
Gongs have been used as a form of sound healing since around 4,000 B.C. Now, they’re used in gong baths. This is a style of meditation where the practitioner creates different tones and patterns with the gongs to produce vibrations that work on the mind-body connection.
Gong baths are great for clearing fears or emotional blocks and improving mental clarity, leaving you transformed on a physical as well as mental level.
The sound wave passing through the body can stimulate red blood cells, opening up the blood supply to all organs and throughout the body. The sound of a gong is heard through the ears, passing through the auditory nerve, then the vagus nerve, stimulating every organ in the body.
This is a form of music that uses specific sound patterns to stimulate the brain. Solfeggio Frequencies are typically used for transformational purposes and can help improve relationships, deal with fear and change, awaken one’s intuition, and so on. Solfeggio Frequencies include a set of sacred numbers with a repeating sequence of 3, 6 and 9, and each Solfeggio Frequency has a specific purpose. These tones contain the frequency required to balance your energy and heal you.
The 7 commonly used Solfeggio Frequencies and their characteristics are:
396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles
639 Hz – Connecting Relationships
741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order
963 Hz – Divine Consciousness or Enlightenment
Experienced via earphones, binaural beats can be used for a variety of purposes such as meditation, lowering stress levels and anxiety, increasing focus, relieving pain and aches, improving sleep, and overcoming depression. How does it work? If you listen to a tone of 200 Hz in your left ear and a tone of 205 Hz in your right ear, your brain will automatically perceive an illusory tone and produce a new frequency of 5 Hz (205 – 200 = 5 Hz). This third tone is called a binaural beat. It is a frequency follow response where the brain automatically aligns the brainwaves to this frequency. The binaural beat is an auditory tone perceived by the brain when the frequency difference is less than 40Hz and both tones are within the frequency of 1500 Hz.
Tuning forks are typically used to tune other instruments. However, they have healing powers of their own. Calibrated tuning forks can be held to specific parts of the body to send vibrations that release tension and open blocked energy channels. This form of sound healing is good for emotional balance and pain relief.
