Thank you to everyone who has attended and supported the Sound Healing sessions, it has been so lovely to see you and share the space with you.
All Sound Healing sessions observe the Government Guidelines of 2m social distancing as well as restricting the numbers in each session, along with personal responsibility to ones-own health.
October has two Full Moons, 1 New Moon, Samhain. Check out the info to find out how the energy might affect you and how you can use it to your advantage.
If we are out of sync with the Earth’s Frequency (Schumann Resonance), we begin to exhibit signs of discomfort that can range from anxiety, insomnia, illness, suppressed immune etc; Conversely, we have discovered that when we are in sync with 7.83hz the body is able to heal and increase its vitality.
Sound healing helps us to get back to our natural frequency.
Sound Therapy “our bodies contain 'energy frequencies' and that sonic frequencies can be used to reattune these energies when they go off key. All you have to do is lie down and bask in the tuneful beauty of 'pure' sound”.
Sound has been a tool for promoting the physical and emotional health of the body for as long as history can account for, deeply rooted in ancient cultures and civilizations. The ancient Egyptians used vowel sound chants in healing because they believed vowels were sacred. Whilst Asian take advantage of singing bowls, which they believe to be “a symbol of the unknowable” whose “vibrations have been described as the sound of the universe manifesting.” Native Americans used drums, song and dance to connect to the mother earth in order to receive visions to instruct them in healings.
Everything we hear vibrates in our head and resounds in our ears again in the form of sound before being transformed into electromagnetic impulses which are conveyed to the processing centers in the brain. We reverberate with every sound we hear. According to the pitch involved, each vibration will have a certain effect, either stimulating or soothing. Even in the intervals in a piece of music can affect us in a certain way.
The aspect of music, the process of hearing which is not an isolated phenomenon involving only the ears. It entails the whole body.
Happy are those who hear the chords of joy and ecstasy.
Happy are those familiar with the tones of the planet.
The crystal bowls that I use are all 432 hertz, with each bowl tuned to the frequency of the Chakras. That’s why you’ll often feel more connected to a certain sound/note within the session that with others. Similarly, some of the sounds can feel a little harsher than others, which normally indicates the location of a blockage (spiritual/emotional/physical). This is a good thing as its working to break up the blockage to clear the energy pathways around and through your body.
Each instrument adds a specific healing element to the Sound Healing sessions.
Both of my gongs have two notes in each. This creates a multitude of sounds when played.
“The sound and vibrational energy of gongs is an ancient and powerful tool used to help still the mind and allow the body to deeply relax. In this state, we can begin to process and release blocks, and come to deep physical relaxation.”
The crystal pyramid is used in most sessions as the pyramid’s power is considered to have supernatural or paranormal properties.
What does it mean when you see colours during the Sound healing?
There’s two explanations; Scientific and spiritual.
Vision is also a manifestation of resonance, similarly to the case of the ears, signals that are “perceived” by the eyes undergo physical processing before being transformed into electronic signals that are sent to the brain. Both the perception of colour and the hearing of sound are determined by the ability of the eyes and ears to distinguish between different frequencies.
The spiritual method comes down to your Chakra’s and aura. There are many Chakra’s but the majority of people focus on the main 7 which have been assigned colours to.
RED – Root Chakra/Muladhara (definition: supporting your roots) is fitting for the Root chakra located at the base of your spine.
ORANGE – Sacral Chakra/Svadhishana, (one’s own residence or dwelling place) is located just below the navel, right in the centre of your lower belly.
YELLOW – Solar Plexus Chakra/Manipura (jewel city) as it acts as the centre of our personal power) is located in the upper belly at the diaphragm.
GREEN – Heart Chakra/Anahata (unbeaten) is located in the heart area.
BLUE – Throat Chakra/Vishuddha (purify) is located within the throat area.
PURPLE – Third eye Chakra/Anja (to know) is located just above and between the eyebrows.
INDIGO/LIGHT PURPLE or CLEAR/WHITE – Crown Chakra/Sahaswara (thousand-petaled lotus flower) is located at the top of the skull which connects us to Source, God, a higher being, the Universal energy etc.
An energy rollercoaster for October
Two Full Moons, 1 New Moon and Samhain for October
What does all that mean in the terms of energies? Manifesting?
The Full Moon can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.
The energy of a Full Moon (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified. When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility.
This is a powerful time for your Manifestation Desires – for those things that you have manifested & for those things that will come into form at a later date in divine timing and for the highest good of all. Remember, your Manifestation Desires may show up in unexpected ways and ‘look’ different to your original Desires… as your ‘feelings’ create something more beautiful, more sacred & divine for your greater purpose on Earth.
The Full Moon is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate. As you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.
The Moon represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
The Sun represents our ‘outer-world’, our identity, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
Why should I pay attention to the phases of the moon?
Our Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence Earth’s tides and the water within our bodies – arousing our emotions, behaviours and our consciousness.
Full Moon and New Moon dates for October
1st October – Harvest Full moon
The name of 'Harvest Moon' was given to it because it happened during the time of year when corn was harvested and brought in. The 'backup name' of Corn Moon fits this idea of bringing the crop in to harvest.
It is called a harvest moon because the Moon is particularly bright and rises early. In the past, this allowed farmers to extend their working day and work by the light of the extra-bright Moon, gathering crops to prepare for the winter months - hence 'harvest'.
16th October – New Moon
Both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.
The New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. In the darkness, the fertile ground, you plant the seeds of your heartfelt desires on the New Moon, consciously focusing your Mind/Body/Spirit on the ‘feeling’ of your desires.
31st October – Hunter Full moon
The Hunter's Moon is named after the hunts carried out in preparation for winter.
Samhain meaning ‘summer’s end”
Halloweens origin as Samhain can be traced back to the ancient Celts who celebrated Samhain (pronounced ‘Sow-in’ in Ireland/England, ‘Sow-een’ in Wales, ‘Sav-en’ in Scotland). Samhain was the final harvest festival of the season, celebrated at the exact point between the Fall Equinox, and Winter Solstice (right around 31st October).
In ancient times, Samhain marked the end of the growing season, the entrance into winter months… And was seen as a powerful turning point in the wheel of the year representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
It was a celebration of darkness… And not as in “evil”, but rather a darkness that represents the unknown, the void, the subconscious mind, the realm of intuition, and all we cannot logically see or comprehend.
The ancient Celts tapped into this energy to celebrate death, honour those in the afterlife, and to gain insight into the realms of existence. Their belief was that in integrating and accepting the darkness… the knowledge and power of the light is also renewed.
May the turning of the year bring you strength and joy.
Call upon the past and celebrate as the veil thins between the worlds.
Honour your Self, Mouther Earth and All Your Generations.
Take care of yourselves. Be kind. Try not to be fearful, if you feel yourself becoming consumed with fear, think about your present moment and give gratitude to three people. Stay healthy. And thank you again.
for you are light
for there are galaxies
within you and
dances in your soul.
Stars live in your eyes,
and glory and grace
live in your bones.
You are beautiful.
You are light and wonder.
