Sound healing therapy is an ancient spiritual system that stretches back to the far reaches of human history. Humanity’s belief in sound healing as a creative force is as old as time.
Creation myths stretch across the world and although their stories may differ, what often binds them together is therapeutic sound. In ancient Indian texts, OM (AUM) is described as the sound of creation. John, in the Christian Bible, tells of the beginning coming from the Word.
This illustrates the extent to which ancient humans not only understood sacred sounds ’ universal possibilities, but also the immense potential therapeutic sound has as a powerful healing force.
Throughout human history sound healing therapy has intimately intertwined into our daily practices, meditations, celebrations, rites of passage and sacred ceremonies. It has been revered as being an extremely effective and adaptable tool and as such many and varied instruments have been created.
Shaman, priest, priestess, healer, masters and medicine men and women from the four corners of the earth have worked with sound in sacred ways since the ancient days of humanity.
We can see from this that it is no coincidence then that in today’s modern world sacred and ancient sound instruments continue to have a renewed sense of interest. Spiritual seekers who are often searching for answers to life that cannot be found in the material world are beginning once more to hear the call of sound healing therapy and now more than ever they are using sound as an aid to meditation, as a holistic healing tool and to connect to the spiritual side of life.
Scientifically it is theorised that sound is all around us and in each moment we are totally surrounded by sounds. These sounds therefore must have cause and effect upon our body, mind and spirit, both positively and negatively, manifesting both ease and dis-ease. I have found that it is the pure clear vibrations and harmonics of therapeutic sound instruments that have the unique capacity to restore our natural resonance and bring us back into harmonic balance.
Over the last decade or so I have come to understand more and more how wonderful therapeutic sound is. Through the ancient teachings of therapeutic sound I have reached the point where I know from deep within myself just how powerful a healing tool therapeutic sound can be. I have the wisdom within my being to bow down in reverence to the ancient masters who more than anyone understood the enormous power and potential for the world and all its inhabitants in sound healing therapy.
Therapeutic sound has always been used to heal and bring balance to the many aspects of our being. It has been linked with all the great spiritual philosophies of the world. It has been woven into the fabric of humanity through civilisations and individuals who have spent lifetimes spreading therapeutic sounds to all those who had the wisdom within to feel its immense potential for spiritual transformation, healing and inner and outer equilibrium.
