At all times we are projecting a sound current. Our cells are vibrating with sound. Our thoughts are generated from this sound. Every yoga pose, meditation and mantra is designed to elevate and harmonize the sound current that flows through you.
Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency. Every emotion, stress and truama produces a sound or a vibration and can often times get dampened or stuck within the body.
Crystal Singing Bowls: Silica sand, combined with water becomes quartz crystal. Quartz crystals have many physical properties; amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy. We see the results in microphones, radio and television equipment, timepieces, laser tools, and computers to name a few.
Our bodies, too, are crystalline in structure. When working with crystals, there may be profound effects on the organs, tissues, and cells, as well as the circulatory, endocrine, and metabolic systems.
Pure 5th Tuning Forks: A relaxing session that helps create change while releasing stress and tension. Paired tuning forks are placed by the ears and sessions can be 5 minutes and up to 45 minutes in length. (20, 30 and 45 minute sesssions available).
The set of tuning forks used is called the ‘Spiral of 5ths Set of 13’ , consists of 13 tuning forks, 0r 12 pairs, ranging in frequency from about 32 to 5000 hertz, roughly spanning the range of a full piano keyboard. All 12 pairs from low to high are used in the session and help the whole body relax. Another set of 3 tuning forks called the ‘OM Tuners’, lower pitched than the Set of 13, are often added to the session to deepen the relaxation in the solar plexus (spleen, pancreas, stomach, liver, kidney) area of the body and to promote grounding and centering. Both the Set of 13 and the OM Tuners are always applied in pairs, one fork of the pair at each ear. The difference in frequency between the 2 forks of any pair is the proportion of 1 1⁄2 to 1. (For example, the lower fork would be 100 Hz and the upper fork would be 150 Hz.)This ratio represents the interval of 2 musical notes known as the 5th. (Think of the opening of ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’. The notes of Twinkle, Twinkle are the sound of a 5th.) The wave form of the 2 frequencies of the 5th produces a movement of expansion and contraction, one of the basic movements in the body, which begins with the first breath at birth. (This movement is known in cranial-sacral therapy as the ‘cranial rhythmic impulse’.) Where there is tension in the body from stress or other causes, the body has forgotten or can no longer move in this undulating wave. The INNER SOUND tuning forks help the body remember the basic oscillating movement of expansion and contraction, which produces a state of deep relaxation (dominance of alpha brain waves). This state is also called a ‘meditative’, ‘self-regulating’ or ‘self-healing state’.
Following the NOBFI principles created by School for Inner Sound, the use of the 3 basic types of sound: linear, non-linear and pure sounds are incorporated into each Sound Bath, creating a variety of harmonics and overtones,
The harmonics of non-linear sounds can activate and free up blocked energy, stress and tension.
Linear harmonic sounds can help to organize, balance and harmonize blocked energies.
Pure harmonic sounds can be good for giving the body a clear, concise reminder to begin vibrating and for any stuck energy to begin moving again.
This integrated approach of using the three types of sound, can help release stress and tension creating balance and harmony in the mind and body.
