Sound Therapy

Man is not only formed of vibrations, but he lives and moves in them; they surround him as the fish is surrounded by water, and he contains them within him as the tank contains the water. His different moods, inclinations, affairs, successes and failures depend upon a certain activity of vibration, whether these be thoughts, emotions, or feelings.” Inayat Khan

Sound, instruments and music have been used in various Shamanic, indigenous cultures for thousands of years as a powerful tool for healing in rituals, ceremonies or rites of passage. Whether in the form of instruments, such as drums, or voice through chanting mantras or singing, these various methods or techniques all carry the same intention: to come together in sacred connection to soothe our suffering, ail our deep wounds, reduce stress, deepen our meditative practices, and connect with spirit, mother earth and father sky in order to find harmony and balance once again.

Sound helps to accelerate rapid shifts in our brainwave states by using entrainment. Entrainment is when a more powerful vibration meets a weaker one and psychically causes it to synchronize and transform itself into the vibratory pattern of the stronger tone. By using frequency and pace, we can entrain our brainwaves to shift from normal beta state to an alpha relaxed state, even further to reach a meditative state of theta and then delta. This is what meditation does, but with sound it is the frequency and vibration that is the vehicle that causes the shift.

A sound healing session is ceremonial, treating sound in a unique and sacred way where the person becomes both a receiver and participant in their own healing process. As you passively take the position of slowing down into relaxation, you become the receiver of sound. In this place of stillness, you participate by becoming open and aware as each sound takes you further into a journey. Sound helps to release these blockages in the physical body while opening access to the subtle or energetic body.

 


Shall I compare thee to a summers day_ Thou art more lovely and more temperate..

Sophia is unique in that she fully embodies the divine masculine and feminine archetypes. I’ve always found it so interesting how she can hold both energies so strongly, which I think is a gift to have in a leader. She’s sensitive, soft, so loving, sharp, discerning, focused and active. She knows how to gently hold space for people, she cuts the fluff and faces things head on as they are. She’s facilitated Goddess Circles over the years, one of which was in my home, which she did so naturally and beautifully. She brings in light-heartedness with her humour and creativity, and by being who she is she allows others to come as they are.

A thoroughly beautiful soul, someone whose integrity you can trust. She is committed to Light work, doing the inner/unseen work every day, self-reflective, driven to bring what she can to others and encouraging the Light in the people around her. Any event led by her will be Blessed.

I had the opportunity to do a few sound healing sessions with Sophia when I was feeling stressed out, emotional and imbalanced in my life. Sophia skillfully uses Tibetan bowls and other tools in her sound healing sessions to help both your physical and subtle bodies release blockages, tensions and traumas in order you to find your harmony and serenity again. After each session I felt rejuvenated, free from pain, motivated, balanced and joyful again. Sophia brings warmth, joy and deep intuition into her energetic healing practice. During the healing, Sophia holds space for you with love, unconditional acceptance and care to just be yourself. I am grateful to Sophia for helping me make important shifts in aligning my mind, body and spirit.
