You can learn to use sound healing at home, no fancy instruments are needed! Sound healing is becoming more popular nowadays since its benefits are more evident and acknowledged.
But you don’t need to enrol in a sound healing course or have access to a sound healer (although it is great to do it if you have the option!), to start feeling the benefits of music right now.
This is a little guide that can work as an introduction to sound healing. Something simple that you can use right now to heal yourself through music, and feel better, no matter what emotion you are experiencing.
In general, faster rhythms have a more energetic impact on us, as well as more percussive music. On the other hand, slower sounds can have a more calming effect on us.
In the same way, higher pitches have a more energetic effect on us than lower tones.
Also, louder sounds have a more energetic effect on us than quiet sounds.
Knowing this, we can use music and sounds for our benefit.
If you have ever gone to a drumming session, you can probably tell how much more energetic you feel after the session! Or if you like running, or going to the gym, you can feel how helpful it is to use upbeat music for it.
And when we need to calm down, we can listen to softer music to help us naturally relax.
This is a helpful and easy way to just get into the mood you need at a specific time!
If you want to learn how to do sound healing at home, we must not forget the “sound” of silence!
Silence is not actually possible in the sense of the complete absence of sound.
But they are ways to limit the disruption of many sounds around us. When we minimize the noise, we can hear things we cannot otherwise.
In the silence of the night is when a lot of artists find their inspiration. Silence helps us to quiet our minds and to listen to ourselves, and process all the things we have experienced.
I grew up on a farm, far from any town. I have always loved and appreciated an environment free from the dense sounds of a city. For me, the difference I felt when I was at the farm, versus visiting the city always caught my attention.
I always felt so much better at the farm, with a lot of natural sounds. I could hear myself. I could listen better not only to myself but to everything around me. There was nothing
that couldn’t be resolved. There was always time for my homework, but also to play, read, sleep well, eat and spend time at the dinner table with my family.
When I moved to the city to go to university, the days officially had the same length, but they felt so much shorter. And it was not about me being busier. Every time I came back to the farm, the days were long again. Again, there was time for everything I needed to achieve in a day.
But in the city, I couldn’t help but notice how disturbing the density of sound was for me. I remember a friend that grew up in the city, coming to my apartment and turning the computer on just so he could have background noise. I was shocked that someone would need to be in the constant presence of noise. Many times I wondered, why is it so terrifying for them to find silence? What are they afraid to find in it?
Silence is needed just as sound is. Rest and activity, yin and yang. In a world where we are overstimulated by constant noise, it is good and healthy to find and embrace stillness. It brings us balance and clarity.
There are many ways to incorporate silence into our daily lives. Meditation is a very popular one, with many well-known benefits. Breathing in the calmness of the night, going for a walk in nature by yourself, enjoying a hot bath…
I was telling my friend today that of all the songs I have listened to in my life, there are not two of them that I feel the same way.
I’m captivated by the fact that each one of them has a special feeling… like a particular frequency, even if they have, of course, more than only one frequency!
I find it fascinating that for every emotion we feel, there is a song out there that can match it. We naturally match our energy with songs that match our energy. That is why when we are sad, it feels “good” in a way, to listen to sad music.
When we can identify the emotion and the mood we are into, we can find a song that matches it. We feel empowered, somehow understood too. And from there, once we acknowledge our feelings and truly “feel” them, we can help our emotions to shift.
When I am sad, I like to listen to sad music that feels exactly like how I am feeling at that moment, but once I can vibrate with the song freely, I feel that it is safe now to move on… so I move on to a little bit happier song, and so on until I am in a happy emotion again.
After all, emotions have a particular vibration. By changing the vibration, we can help change the emotion and avoid getting stuck in it.
This is an exercise that I learned a while ago. They called it the soul song. Although I have heard this name for other voice-related exercises, this is the one I have practiced and benefited from.
All you do is sit comfortably and just allow your voice to create your natural song. It will be a different one every day, of course. This exercise not only allows you to develop your creativity but also connects you truly with where you’re at right now. It shows you how you are doing from the inside out. Just sing whatever comes to you, without overthinking it. There is no right or wrong sound or melody when you are doing soul song practice
