April 4, 2022 would have been my mom's 84th birthday. I miss her. I share this with you because this has been a journey I have been on for about a year and half now. I don't know if the grief or sorrow will ever really go away, I think it is something I will just grow accustomed to. The one thing that I do know is that my mom is often with me in spirit.
The Law of Conservation of Energy states that "energy is never created nor destroyed but changes from one form to another." So, I do believe that while my mother's physical body is no longer in its earthly form, her soul lives on. That is a beautiful way to look at things and a wonderful comforting feeling to me.
The reason I mention this to you is because it is my mother's spirit that led me to begin my sound healing journey. I kid you not! It is a journey that has had a beautiful unfolding for me. And, last evening when I held a sound healing for a room full of individuals, my practice was silently dedicated to her.
I always wanted to work with sound. I think my first encounter with a sound healing was about 10 years ago in a yoga class. I was lying in savasana, and the sound of the singing bowls echoed through the room. It was pure music to my ears and my soul!
That experience stuck with me for years. I have a dear friend in New Jersey who is a sound practitioner and a few years back, we paired up and did an event together, Yoga Nidra with the Alchemy Singing Bowls. It was magical. I remember thinking to myself...one day I am going to play the singing bowls.
Well, that opportunity came to me a few years later. It took me a while to manifest my dreams.
I was living in Sedona when my mom was diagnosed with cancer. Her disease took her quickly. She was diagnosed on November 1, and passed on November 17. Quick...too fast! To quickly to process...especially when it's your mom. She birthed me and brought me into this world. She was my rock, my confidant, my mentor and my friend.
We were in New Jersey for about 10 days after her death. During that time I had an experience that I remember to this day. I can't explain it, but about two days after her death, I literally was told (in internal whispers)..."you need to work with the sound bowls." It was as loud and was coming from that little knowing from within, a higher power. This message didn't happen just once, it happened several times...to the point when I finally told my husband..."this may sound crazy, but I need to begin working with sound as a form of healing"...for me and now I realize for others as well.
We traveled back to Sedona, and it was then that I reached out to my good friend Patricia who I had done the Sound Healing/Yoga Nidra event years early. I asked her how do I find someone to purchase my set of bowls . Little did I know, my husband was also reaching out to my friend and asking her the same question.
As fate would have it, the two of us individually reached out to the distributor of the alchemy singing bowls inquiring about making a purchase and meeting up with him for a training. He was a little confused because we were both asking him about purchasing the bowls, but each of us didn't know the other was also inquiring. Now if that isn't synchronistic I don't know what is! My sweet husband was there supporting my healing along the way.
I want to share with you, it was within a month of my mom's passing that I had my beautiful set of alchemy singing bowls. I love my bowls. I love playing them, looking at them and sharing them with others. They have helped me so much on my healing journey, and remind me of my mom every time I play them. What a beautiful legacy and tribute to her memory. I have spent hours learning about sound and how it is so harmonizing on the body.
Sound healing sessions have the power to create, move and shift our energy. When the alchemy crystal bowls are played, they can move us into higher energetic states. They can initiate profound shifts in our well-being, relaxation and our awareness.
The harmonic and pure tones made by the alchemy singing bowls are not just heard by the ear, but by the whole body. This can create overwhelmingly positive effects on the circulatory, metabolic and endocrine systems, as well as our organs, tissues and cells.
This vibrational medicine brings balance to the hemispheres of the brain, calms our nervous system and promotes deep states of rest and relaxation. This can create beautiful space within us for inner peace. This is why I work with them. This is why I share them passionately with others as often as I can.
I am excited to share that I will soon be hosting virtual sound healings. I have purchased the equipment needed in order to allow this vibrational medicine to be heard effectively via the internet, and I have a set up now to make this happen.
Don't get me wrong, I still think that experiencing a sound healing in person is the most ideal, but sometimes that's not possible. It has taken me a bit to get to this point, as I am not a "tech" gal, and I had to take a few classes in order to learn how to do this. 🤨🤨
Stay tuned...it's coming soon, and I would love to connect with you and share this vibrational medicine that has the ability to soothe the soul. Always know if you travel to Sedona, it's a "must" experience in person too!
