Balance and Recharge
Keeping up with the demands of life, work and family can be hard to do while trying to preserve a healthy amount of energy for Self and keep it all going.
We often ask ourselves, what can we do to balance the things that are taking huge tolls on our energetic health and recharge ourselves? While being in nature and spending time with friends can go a long way, proper diet and nutrition or just a good nights sleep are all important too.
Here’s a little something different. Sound and vibrational therapies are finally making their way onto the scene. Keeping in mind, all things are energy and this is not a ‘cure’ for the energy zapping that happens with regular life, but these can be incredible tools to help us recharge ourselves and find the right vibration for good health.
What is sound healing? Ancient instruments, including Tibetan singing bowls, are ‘struck and sung’ in specific rhythmic patterns to create vibrational sound harmonics at the frequency of “AUM” or “OM”. This sound impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls. The harmonic vibrations engage the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate and disrupt the pain reflex creating a deep sense of well being. Some people work with gongs, toning, color, and visualizations may be integrated into your session to help move energy.
The benefits of sound and vibrational healing can range from pain, stress-related conditions and the ability to alter one’s consciousness. It is also proven to reduce pain and discomfort from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression. People report improved memory, clarity, vitality and the ability to take action yet feel a deep sense of relaxation and tranquility.
I found some wonderful articles describing the benefits, technical aspects and science of Tibetan singing bowls. If you’re looking for more information on this, check out this article shared by Jevon Dängeli – NLP Trainer, Coach & Hypnotherapist. It’s excellent.
