The idea that sound affects the health of the mind and body is not new.
Chanting and mantras recitation have been part of ancient cultures for thousand of years.
We use music for entertainment, expression, celebration, ceremony, leisure and communication. Whether we are musically inclined or not, it is the one thing that truly connects humans from all cultures, creeds, and corners of the earth.
We play music at our weddings to celebrate love, and at funerals to say goodbye. We listen when we are bored and dance to it when we want to have fun. And we sing praises and worship deities with it.
But most importantly, we use music for healing.
Let us first look into what sound really is before we can understand how it can affect our well-being.
Quantum Physics shows that what we call matter is in reality vibrating systems in resonance with each other. Pure matter, that is, nucleus and electrons, which are the building blocks of everything, account for only 0,0001 percent. 99,999 percent is defined by Quantum Physics as vacuum, the carrier of substance of specific wave fields. During a chemical reaction, it is not the material parts (matter) that react with each other, but their fields, resulting in intricately combined wave systems that originated from interference of the individual frequencies of atoms and molecules. Therefore, each material structure has an individual and unmistakable wave field.
The laws of waves are consequential for the sound-vibration healing process, since rhythm, cycles and periodicities rule all living life. This is true for both the molecular and the cellular level as well as for the individual systems.
Whether or not we hear it, everything has a sound, a vibration of its own, including our entire system.
Sound, what we call a resonance, is the frequency at which an “object” naturally vibrates. Each part of our body has its own resonance, and vibrational medicine is based on the idea that dis-ease is a result of those natural resonances getting out of tune – whether due to stress, illness or environmental factors.
Illness and health can therefore be seen as a vibrational or resonance phenomenon. The more capable of resonance, the more capable of vibration and the healthier we are. The better our manifold biorhythms are aligned and the more we live in harmony, that is, in resonance with our environment.
Tibetan Singing Bowls therefore help bring clients’ bodies back in tune. The bowls work on vibration and since everything is vibration, the body is tuned like you would tune an instrument.
Sound healing allows your body to heal itself by slowing down your brain waves, which affect every cell in your body, shifting them from dis-eased to being in ease. It’s just aligning it with whatever you need.
There is another important factor when it comes to sound waves. Sound waves affect water greatly. It has been proven through much research that sound waves pass through water molecules affecting their rate of vibration. Just as sound charges water molecules in a glass, it also charges the H2O molecules in the human body.
Considering that a human body is made up of 70% to 80% water, you can imagine what effect healing sounds can have on our entire system.
