Everything has a sound, a vibration, all its own. It’s been said that at the moment of our birth, we created our own sound, our unique vibration. Sound has the power to excite, upset, encourage and heal. Music for centuries has told our stories, maintained histories and captured emotions of the human heart. Tapping into the power of sound healing can help relieve stress and anxiety, improve concentration, increase creativity, balance brain hemispheres, restore balance in the endocrine system, relieve sinus pressure and headaches, increase energy, and balance the chakras. It’s also been known to relieve insomnia, increase psychic ability and create feelings of unity.
The opposite of sound healing is also true. In a study by Dr. Tomatis, he showed that children who are screamed at learn to survive by blocking out these noises. Once their hearing shuts down, they will find it hard to learn. But it’s never too late to heal the brain and the soul. The Sufi expression for sound and music means “food for the soul.” Read on to learn how different types of sound can heal your body and mind.
