Sound is everywhere.
It is our universe.
It is everything we touch, feel, see, so it affects us on a personal level.
Sound can be a personal growth experience,,,a wonderful experience of coming into yourself.
Falling in love with yourself again.
That is pure sacred sound.
Our body, mind and spirit always want to be moving in a direction toward balance.
The use of sound is valuable tool in the treatment of so many conditions, ailments and diseases. It is being used successfully all over the world as an alternative medicine healing modality.
“Gong baths” are a wondrous and magical journey into sound and have an astounding effect on a whole range of maladies. The Gongs produce a strong sound wave that stimulates your body, having an influence from the surface of the skin to the center of every cell within you. There is nowhere within the body that the resonance of the healing gong cannot penetrate. It can bypass the mind and go straight to the root of your imbalances.
The gong vibration releases tension and energetic blocks in your body. This stimulates a higher functioning of your endocrine, circulatory and nervous systems. In yogic terms, it increases prana (vital life force). Your pituitary gland is directly affected by its sound, which in turn causes the whole glandular system to become balanced. Because the live gongs carry a wide range of frequencies, it can be really helpful to those with neuropathy because it stimulates nerve endings where nerve damage has occurred.
The gong purifies and quiets your superficial mind while also clearing clutter from your subconscious mind. Gong baths create cellular realignment. Whether you have a physical, mental or spiritual problem, the pure penetrating sound waves of the healing gong can help you to break free of old patterns, regenerate and enliven your entire system.
Sound can either be a source of healing, or a source of pain. If you’ve ever been to New York City and heard the ultra loud sound of a subway train screeching to a halt, you know what I mean. Another example of damaging sound is loud, abusive yelling. When an angry person screams at you, the stress can be felt throughout your whole being. Sound is powerful. It can either increase stress, scramble your nervous system and lower immunity, or it can heal, soothe your mind and create deep balance.
