Why Did I Become a Sound Healing Practitioner?

When I was a little girl, I was surrounded by performers. My family had all been involved in musical theater, opera, dance, composing or other elements of performance in one way or the other so it was a completely normal thing for me to feel like music was a natural part of expressions of joy, love, pain and peace.

Music always played a pivotal part of my existence. I have always loved to sing, dance and perform. From feeling ecstatic in dance as a young girl, to getting through those angsty teen years, on to moving into learning to quiet my mind and feel calmer and finding joy in singing again as an adult. I even was a worship leader at my local church before I decided to focus more on an overall approach to sound healing.

When I learned more about sound healing, it felt like the perfect accompaniment to the work I was doing with helping others to heal from suffering and trauma.

It also pairs very well with other modalities like breathwork, energy healing and medicine work. Many people say they can "see sound" when they are in the medicine space. It is one of the dimensions of medicine work that is extraordinary.

Sound healing has allowed me to explore my passion for music and sound. Many sound healers are drawn to the field because of their love of music and sound. They enjoy the way that sound can evoke different emotions and states of being, and they understand that sound can be a powerful tool for healing.

An interesting aspect to my personal journey with music has been to let go of old paradigms and judgements that are so common in the professional music industry. In the medicine space, so many talented people are creating completely new and amazing songs and sound combinations.

My teacher and mentor Ashana comes to mind. Her songs are so etherial and lovely. She has taught me a lot about playing my bowls in full presence and letting go of singing techniques that I learned because I came from a "professional" singers' family. Another singer I so admire is Deya Dova who creates new and transforming sounds in each song she creates. It is through her that I've learned to allow new sounds and phrases to come through during my singing.

Sound Healing also brought another aspect to my abilities in my mission and purpose to help others. Sound is a powerful way to promote relaxation, peace and harmony, reduce stress, and relieve pain.

Sound has a profound effect on the body, mind, and spirit. The frequencies can help to balance the body's energy, promote healing, and facilitate spiritual growth.

If you are interested in becoming a sound healer or incorporating sound into your healing practice, there are a few things you can do to get started. First, you should learn as much as you can about sound healing. There are many books, articles, and websites that can teach you about the basics of sound healing. You can also find sound healing workshops and courses that can provide you with more in-depth training. Many people just run out and buy a set of bowls from Amazon and start clanking on them. I have attended many sound healings where the practitioner didn't take the time to get centered and actually play the rims of the bowls. There is true technique and presence that comes from a skilled sound healer.

Once you have a basic understanding of sound healing, you can start practicing. There are many different ways to practice sound healing. You can use your voice, instruments, or other sound sources to create healing vibrations. You can also use sound healing techniques such as chanting, toning, and guided meditation. At first, just start singing or playing to yourself. View it as a gift to yourself. Become comfortable with creating and allowing the energy of the music to flow through you. You will be amazed at how developing your skills will actually help you understand yourself and help you to heal and grow as well.

As you practice sound healing, you will develop your own unique style and approach. You will learn how to use sound to connect with your clients and to create a healing environment. You will also learn how to use sound to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve overall well-being.

If you are passionate about music and sound, and you want to help others heal and improve their lives, then becoming a sound healer may be the right path for you. With dedication and practice, you can develop the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful sound healer.
