When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body. When the vibration of a part of the body is out of harmony, we have dis-ease. With dis-ease, a different sound pattern is established in the affected part of the body. When sound is projected into the dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns are restored. There are many methods of healing with sound. Mantras and chants alongside the use of crystal bowls and her sacred instruments are technique’s Colleen has been using in her healings since 2003.
The calming sound waves which emanate from the bowls immediately put the brain into the alpha state. They speak to the entire body vibrating each, organ cell and atom. Shaking loose old patterns, realigning and refrequencing and allowing us to easily access higher states of consciousness.Crystals are fossilized water, formed when water combines with an element under certain conditions of pressure, temperature and energy. As a crystal, the element is able to express itself as a more unified and ordered being.
Our bodies, too, are crystalline in structure. When working with crystals, there may be profound effects on the organs, tissues, and cells, as well as the circulatory, endocrine, and metabolic systems.Thoughts are energy forms. When thought energy interacts with a crystal, those thoughts are changed to more harmonic forms, which change brainwave frequencies, showing possible alterations in consciousness. Thus, the power of positive intention or affirmation combined with the use of crystals provides remarkable healing results.
The Platinum Crystal Bowl here that Colleen is holding is one of her favorite bowl’s she uses during her healing sessions. Pastel rainbow elegance is achieved in our yin energy Platinum Bowl that stimulates the Divine Feminine, relieves stress and depression and aligns the intuitive emotional body. This stunning alchemical bowl unifies astral and physical body fields in a sonic opalescent rainbow bath – a super harmonizer/balancer. It has a calming, steadying, grounding effect for perfect attunement resonance. A beautiful addition to any sacred union celebration. The priests of ancient Egypt knew how to use vowel sounds to resonate their energy centers or chakras. There is a DIRECT LINK between different parts of the body and specific sounds. Such a technique appears extremely old, yet healing through sound goes back even further at least as far back as Atlantis where the power of sound was combined with the power of crystal.
At the present time the Hopi American Indian prophecy is being fulfilled with the “coming of the Rainbow people, through the keepers of the crystal bowls”. The ancient wisdom has emerged to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe through a crystal tone.
The American psychic, Edgar Cayce, and Rudolf Steiner, German philosopher, educator and artistic genius both predicted “Pure tones will be used for healing before the end of the century”.
Nostradamus foretold the healing of cancer through pure tone by 1998. The tones created by crystal bowl sound and music enters as a fulfillment of this prophecy.
This photo here has been taken in Colleen’s healing Center. These are only a few of the Crystal Bowls she uses during her sessions.
An invocation at the beginning of the session helps create sacred space and affirms intention. Colleen than places these bowls on your body/ chakra centers and also uses the bowls in combination with her voice and other instruments for a very effective deep healing session.
Dr. Larry Dossey, well known for his studies on healing with prayer, points out the primary characteristics of “healers” by stating that they make use of a prayerful, meditative state of awareness, adopting a dispassionate, loving, and compassionate attitude toward the person in need. They go beyond the individual self-feeling united with each other and with the All. They have an immense caring and empathy for the person needing healing.
“During this state the healer most often does not consider himself or herself to be the source of the healing, but only a conduit through which the healing flows from a higher power”.
The crystal bowl has this amazing property and thus can be used to bring out a special quality, healing or feeling in people and simultaneously release and replace thought forms and disease that are not of the highest radiance for the listener.
Modern scientists like Dr. Marcel Vogel & Mitchell Gaynor, M.D. have researched and documented that crystal bowls resonate in a harmonious and transformative manner with the body.
Sound Healing is a vibrational therapy that is being incorporated into many energy medicine practices. Sound Healing works on the belief that the human body is not solid. Rather it is energy that is held together by sound. Sound is a creative and formative power. The Practitioner uses sound to create balance and alignment in the physical body, the energy centers called “chakras”, the meridians and the etheric field.
While the use of sound and music for healing is ancient and is found in many spiritual and sacred traditions, it is a relatively new modality in the modern complementary healing arts. Sound Healing encompasses virtually all aspects of the auditory phenomenon… music, drumming, nature sounds, electronic sounds, and vocal sounds.
All things in nature vibrate with sound, light and color. Everything is made up of energy at various frequencies. Sound frequencies affect everything about us. While certain sounds affect us negatively, the correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance our bodies.
Your body and all its parts are a wondrous orchestra that is playing a beautiful symphony when you are healthy. If one player in the orchestra begins to play out of tune, playing the wrong notes with the wrong timing pretty soon that begins to affect the whole orchestra. This is what happens in the body when one part of the body is not in harmony.
Disease indicates that something is out of tune. Currently, our medical approach to dealing with this problem is to either to sedate it with drugs or to remove the part that is no longer functioning properly. The premise of Sound Healing is to simply re-frequence the out of tune, cell, organ, or entire body.
With the intent of creating the correct resonant frequency for a part of the body, organ or cell, which is vibrating out of harmony, and projecting this frequency into that area the practitioner can restore the imbalanced area back to its natural resonant frequency.
There are many methods of Sound healing. Musical instruments can be used. Sacred vessels, bells, tuning forks, drums and voice are just some of the ways Sound Healers project sound for healing. No matter what is used intention is one of the most important components of Sound Healing. Intention plus frequency equals healing. When the healer combines these two factors with intuition and total presence, profound transformation is possible.
The drum is one of the most ancient instruments dating back tens of thousands of years. It has been used for healing, celebration, ritual, worship, rites of passage, divination, communicating tribe to tribe, and with the earth and spirit realms. Drumming connects us with the deeper rhythms of life.
Drumming increases our Alpha brainwaves, those brainwaves associated with feelings of well being and euphoria. As the drum provides seemingly limitless ranges of emotions from deep relaxation to extraordinary aliveness, we can explore the vast range of experiences offered by shamanic drumming, from its ability to create euphoria to its deep and sacred power to heal.
By drumming over the body each drum beat sends healing deep into the physical and subtle bodies simultaneously. Every organ, every cell in the body is a drum and drumming reminds our body of its ideal vibratory rate, which is in harmony with the pulse of the earth and the Universal flow of creation. Drumming creates a harmony that raises the vibratory rate to levels, which allow the body to accelerate its innate healing abilities.
With the Chakra Chimes long sustaining notes are produced by striking the aluminum bars with a rubber mallet. Pure tones are produced in wave patterns corresponding to the body’s seven primary chakras. As well, there is an eighth note representing the first chakra over your head, known as the transpersonal point or soul star.
The chakra chimes use ancient Pythagorean tuning, which is said to bring harmony to the soul and body in a very special way. Pythagoras recognized that music was an expression of harmony, the divine principle that brings order to chaos and discord. Sounding these beautiful chimes during periods of relaxation balances and harmonize the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Bells and Tingsha
Bells and chimes tend to provide a gentle focus for the clearing of the mind. Bells and Tibetan Tingsha have a wonder way of clearing discordant energy from a room, person, or object. The Tibetan Tingsha, or hand cymbal, is rung to start or end a meditation, a teaching, or simply to create a moment of quiet concentration. The Tingsha is made from a combination of metals, which create a beautiful, sweet ring, when struck. Following the sound with ones attention clears the mental chatter producing a sense of stillness, clarity of mind.
“The human voice has the power to mold the substance of astral light into shape and form.”
Toning is vocalizing a pure sound and requires no singing ability whatsoever. Creating sound in this way has a powerful healing effect on all levels. The vibrations massage the vocal chords and course throughout the whole body, leaving it humming with vitality. The mind is also refreshed and clarified by being cleared of its usual distractions. Toning is excellent for those who ‘can’t sing’ and encourages confidence in self-expression in those with low self-esteem. An invigorating sound bath can be given by a group to an individual, in which they are bathed for a prolonged period in the vibration of a group toning. This often gives rise to powerful feelings of support and connection.
The repetitive use of sound or a phrase to induce trance, invoke a deity, or enter an enhanced state of consciousness is called chanting. The repetition stills the everyday mind and frees the creativity of the unconscious mind, giving rise to visions or a sense of blissfulness. A mantra or spiritually significant word or phrase is often used. Particular mantras will stimulate specific chakras, to open them up and move energy from one center to another.
Our intuitive selection of harmonious music can become a very important part of our everyday environment to support tranquility and wellness. Music is the language of the soul, which connects us to our spiritual nature. Our world is blessed with a fine selection of music that is created to inspire, relax, energize, heal and keep us well. Music is a way to tap into the innate knowledge that resides deep in our cells. We live “in” music. Great music nourishes us in ways we don’t even realize. It resides everywhere in our world. Music is the pulse of the energy that courses in and through everything.
We are Water, We are Sound
Sound travels 4 times more efficiently through water than through air. Our bodies are 70-80% water making us extremely susceptible to the healing effects of sound. Just like plants, when we are healthy there is symmetry and balance seen in the crystallized water cells that make up the tissues and organs in our bodies.
Quantum Physics now accepts that all matter, our bodies included, is held together through vibration. The atoms that make up our bodies are mostly empty space and when working with high frequency sound vibration it is possible to create a structural blueprint that reminds your body on a molecular level where balance is.
Sound waves have geometric structures that they are resonating which can be visibly demonstrated through the study of cymatics. It is this primordial geometry that gives certain sounds the ability to permeate our bodies and remind our cells what symmetry, harmony & balance is.
