SOUNDS FOR HEALING (SERIOUS MEDICAL CONDITIONS, EMOTIONAL ISSUES, PREVENTION)
This is helpful for those with cancer, other serious and chronic illness and as a preventative measure to decrease the effect of stress in your life.
Mitchell Gaynor, MD, an oncologist and author of Sounds of Healing-A Physician Reveals the Therapeutic Power of Sound, Voice, and Music. “…distinguishes between curing and healing. To “cure” means physically to fix something, whereas “healing” refers to wholeness, a union of the mind, body, and spirit.” Dr. Gaynor, who had an oncology practice in Manhattan considers sound healing integrative medicine, a complement to a patient’s treatment. He leads bi-weekly support groups for his patients that involve chanting and playing Tibetan singing bowls. The bowls are made of several kinds of metal; when struck gently on the rim with a wood baton, they vibrate at different frequencies, making sounds, not unlike church bells. He also added Crystal singing bowls which he found to be particularly helpful in creating a relaxation response. Meditation with chanting and bowls takes us outside of our own egos and fears. And, the patient at peace within puts up the best fight against cancer ( and other illnesses). That is significant because stress can depress every aspect of the immune system, “including those that protect us against flu and against cancer. Listening to pleasing sounds can reduce the body”s levels of cortisol. When the heart rate is relatively steady, and breathing is deep and slow, stress hormones decrease. TBA
We are energy beings in a field of energy. The subtle energy field is the blueprint of our physical self. Our thoughts manifest disharmony which shows up in our energy field and then back into the physical if not resolved.
Being able to “read” our chakras helps us find the blocks and gives us an opportunity to resolve them and rise to our spiritual potential.
