Certain sounds can bring you into a different mood or thought pattern. Birds singing in the spring are a great example. The sound of a beloved being’s voice may be another.
Sound affects us in ways and at levels that are far deeper than we typically understand. If we allow the vibration of sound to penetrate us without resistance, we can begin to vibrate at our own best and truest as well. Similarly, when a sound fades away into silence, you can experience peace. The stillness in our surroundings can help us to find a stillness within.
During the closing period of my classes, I play singing crystal bowls. These healing tones can bring deeper peace to the final relaxation or savasana of a yoga class or to certain parts of a guided meditation. The silence that surrounds those sounds is also healing.
Take time to notice how sound and silence work for your highest and best.
