There is a long process of processing a vibrational thought that enters the body. It enters through the nerves of the ear and then travels to the brain and then transmitted to the whole body. The body responds according to the vibrations it is getting. Sound healing therapy is a great way to establish a connection between the mind and body thereby initiating healing. Sound therapy works in levels. It begins with healing at the emotional level then mental level and then progresses towards the physical level.
Here are some tips on how you can use sound to heal yourself.
Do Bramari Pranayama (Humming Bee Breath Exercise)
This breathing exercise is great for aligning the mind and body. You can practice this at any time.
Sit straight with your spine erect.
Close your eyes and use your middle fingers to close your ears.
Breathe in through your nose
Exhale while making a humming sound like a bee
Feel the vibrations in the body
Do this for 3-5 minutes.
Chanting is more than just spiritual practice. One of the reasons behind chanting is to send positive vibrations to the entire body. This activates certain energies that make you feel a sense of positivity and calmness as you chant.
You can chant OM or AUM. Whatever suits your belief, you can chant. Try to chant for as long as possible to allow vibrations to flow in the body and reach all the parts. Chant with an open heart, free mind and open throat. The more open and loud your chant, the better healing benefits you reap.
In Vedic tradition, mantras are associated with religious offerings to a deity and chanting those mantras activate the energies associated with them. However, all mantras hold the power to channel inner energies. Whichever mantra you resonate with or like, chant it. Doing so in a meditating position helps in soul awakening. All the energy blockages would get cleared and you can restore your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
There are specific sounds for specific body parts. When you wish to heal a particular part, you can chant the toning sound related to that part. Here are some examples of toning sounds:
Bowls and Bells
Have you ever felt an instant surge in energy when you hear the sounds of metal bells and bowls? It is because of their sound frequency that activates the inner vibrations. In order to use sound for self-healing, you can try metal bowls, also known as singing bowls. These are widely used in meditation to initiate healing and promote relaxation. Consult a sound healer or sound therapist once to know what you should get for your health concerns. An expert guide can bring added benefits.
