Learn the Benefits of Sound Healing with Tuning Forks

We’re surrounded by sound, and yet, how much of the sound we hear and feel are actually beneficial and, well, HEALING? If you’re plugged in, what are you really plugged into? Chaos and disharmony in the form of sound waves have an effect on the body that interferes with growth, healing, and regeneration of healthy cells and tissues. How do we know which sounds are  disharmonious and which sounds benefit us? In addition, how do sounds HEAL? As a practitioner working with energy healing modalities, becoming attuned to healing frequencies can enhance and accelerate healing for you as well as your clients.

Healing Sounds

My favorite healing frequencies, the solfeggio 6-tone scale, show a mathematical relationship – an expression of harmony with which all living things resonate. Sound is measured in Hertz (Hz). In the table below, see if you can discover the numerical relationships between each of the solfeggio frequencies.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear

417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)

639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

741 Hz – Expression/Solutions

852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

These harmonious frequencies can actually be seen (sound becomes visible) when various substances exposed to these sounds vibrate. The small crystals of salt or sugar, for example, begin to move and form patterns on a flat surface. Dr. Hans Jenny showed in a process he  called cymatics that pure tone vibrations create these beautiful patterns, not only in the lab, but also in nature. We see these patterns everywhere; the arrangement of petals in a flower, waves washing up on shore, the formation of coral reefs in response to whale songs, and many more. Chaotic or non-pure tone sounds elicit no patterns.

We can then relate the reformation of broken bones, the development of muscle tissue, and even the structure of DNA to the possibility that certain sounds heal. Though there’s much more to include in this short article about solfeggio frequencies, cymatics, and healing, I’d like to now suggest that experience is the best teacher. Yet, as we continue to be “plugged in” to electronic devices, we find ourselves not in-tune with the healing sounds of nature. Here’s where we, as healers and practitioners, can make a huge difference for not only ourselves but also for our clients. Bring on the tuning forks!

What are the Benefits of Using Tuning Forks as a Practice?

The Natural Therapies Certification Board offers accreditation for many healing modalities, including sound healing. As a stand-alone healing modality, a practitioner has the option to pursue training as a Vibrational Sound Practitioner with continuing education as a Vibrational Sound Teacher. In some states, CEUs may be accepted in the field of sound healing to apply toward re-licensing of other modalities such as body work. (Check with your licensing board for more information on what they accept for CEUs). Of course there are many benefits beyond certification. Here are a few:

  • Single-tone harmonious frequencies enhance the effectiveness of other healing modalities
  • Effortlessly integrate sound with Reiki, massage, hypnosis, etc.
  • Use as a stand-alone healing modality with superior effectiveness and client results
  • Increases uniqueness in your field
  • Helps raise your personal vibrational levels
  • Helps healing in your own etheric field
  • Helps create a sacred space
  • Supports energetic hygiene
  • Helps balance your inner vortex
  • Releases unseen blocks in the body
  • Heightens intuitive awareness and psychic abilities
  • Experience minimal to no strain on the physical body
  • Easy to learn with effective results
  • Creates a nice sound bath
  • Attunes you to go beyond the physical and energetic limitations of other modalities
  • Helps you work as a shepherd for transformation
  • Offers a unique method for targeted healing work
  • Optimizes wholeness on the physical, emotional and spiritual plains
  • Assists you in working with ease and grace
  • Effortlessly tap into higher realms of consciousness

Spirituality of Unconditional Source

20180730_145911Last week as I chose a crystal to accompany me on my meditation, I let go of any preconceived ideas about which crystal to choose and for which purpose. My only intention, honestly, was to have a friend along to be present with me while I connected to the divine. Oh, yes, sometimes I choose a specific stone with which to work. Maybe it’s one that’s newly acquired, or jumping out at me from my table of assorted crystals. However, in this case, the crystal that wanted to join me on my journey was a “singing quartz point” I received from a friend in Arizona. I was originally drawn to having such a crystal in my set of crystal friends when I first met one more than a year ago while in teacher training for advanced sound healing classes. Little did I know that bringing one into my life would have such a profound impact.

The Physical Nature of Spirit

First, let me tell you about the physical nature of this particular quartz crystal. As with most quartz points, this one has six sides, and six facets which all come to a point at one end with a growth pattern of 4-5-3-3-4-5. That means that each of the pointed facets have edges that, when counted may reveal something about its nature and function. It has markings on the sides indicating its use as a record keeper. There is some indication of “damage” which created a rainbow effect in one intersection of the faces. Small crystals attached to two of the sides are referred to as barnacles indicating new energy, while markings of an imprint embed the energy of a crystal that may have grown adjacent to this one. Partly clear and partly clouded, it’s the perfect balance of masculine and feminine wisdom.

Though people most often associate physical characteristics of quartz points with their energy and their meaning, I like to notice those features “second”, after I get to know the feeling of the spirit within the crystal. I often prompt my Reiki students to rely on their own senses to receive messages from any crystals we have in class. As I sat in silence and quieted my mind, I was quickly invited IN, inside the crystal, as I have often experienced when meditating with quartz. Experiencing the feeling of quartz from an inside perspective slows things down and I can see as well as feel the inner nature of the Being with whom I’m communicating. Images of molecular structure and the 3-dimensional components of chemistry and biology passed by my mind as I went deeper into the story unfolding before me. I heard the word “conditional” and instantly knew that the crystal held to my heart as well as the crystal in which I walked spoke to me about how the 3-dimensional world relied on what we understood as Laws of Science. Atoms get together, electrons move around, one molecule joins with another, and so forth, because that’s the way our earth exists for us.

Then my focus shifted to the space between the atoms and physical structures. The space became vast, uncluttered by physical construction, patterns, and “conditions”. I felt myself become instantly uplifted and unencumbered by my own physicality. I heard the word “unconditional” and knew, at least in part, the meaning of the message. The Divine Source exists in the unconditional state – in the spaces between the fabrication of our seen reality. Objects and structures exist only on the “condition” of scientific laws, the ones we understand and apply to 3-dimensional rules . . . positive attracts negative, for example. In the unconditional realm of infinite possibilities, we must give up any misconceptions about our existence.

What If?

Though science tells me that silicone dioxide makes up the chemical composition of quartz, it feels to me that simplifying a spiritual being (the one dwelling in quartz on this dimensional plane) overlooks the magic we all hold inside us. We’re unconditional beings living in a conditional world. What if we approached our sense of being and purpose as “magical”, “unlimited”, and “unconditional”?

Sometimes I hear words that come across as excuses as to why a person can’t achieve their goals, have money, prosperity, love, joy, clarity, and all the things that feel beyond reach to them. Though I won’t diminish how people really feel about their circumstances or the moments that led up to their conditional conclusions, I will offer that perhaps another view exists – one already inside us, in the spaces between the physical structures of muscles, bones, cells, and electrons. Those spaces are much more vast, and more powerful than the 3-dimensional conditional “reality” outside of spirit.

Embodied Spirit

Have you discovered your Soul’s Purpose? Do you have answers to the big questions – Who am I? Why am I here? What is my soul’s purpose? How do I manifest everything I want? In an effort to share a process that goes beyond the physical plane to the unconditional way of being, I’ve developed an online course called Embodied Spirit. As I prepare to launch  Embodied Spirit™ I’m inviting a few people who feel ready to go beyond limitations to discover new possibilities.

First, fill in the form on my website here to get access to my free ebook. Then, I’m accepting a limited number of applications (only 15 people) to participate in the Pre-Launch class. This is offered at a dramatically reduced price of only $249 for the first four modules, after which you have the option to continue modules 5-7 for only $99 (a total investment of only $348). After the course officially launches later, the price will be $997.

I know you’re going to love it, but just in case you have any reservations, if you’re not completely satisfied with the pre-launch course, your investment can be applied toward any private sessions or classes. Just let me know within 30 days of purchase to make the adjustment.

I can’t wait to hear from you. Many blessings,

Purification

During a recent Reiki class here at my healing center in Portland, we prepared for the weekend as we always do – setting an intention for self and others – then drawing a card from a well-loved deck of oracle cards. One card that came up was called Purification, and the messages it brought seemed to ring true for not only the student who chose it, but for everyone throughout the weekend. Why might that happen? Is there some significance about purification that matters enough to keep “speaking” to us over the course of two days?

Purification is defined as the removal of something (a toxin, an element, an entity, for example) from a person’s physical body, the environment, or from any substance to contain compounds or constituents that are not a part of the WHOLE. Spiritually speaking, purification may involve releasing more than removing. The difference comes from self-instituted intentions for empowerment. What needs cleansing?

Self

Just as with healing, the first part of cleansing always begins with SELF. What would you cleanse for yourself? We care for the physical body with daily washing – showering, hand washing, etc. – on the outside. However, cleansing on the inside is of utmost importance. Consider foods, choosing raw and unprocessed as much as possible over processed. Consider personal care products, choosing clean and natural over synthetic ones filled with chemical additives. Consider filtered water over tap or bottled water. Consider antioxidants and natural supplements (minerals, herbs, zeolite) over sugars and hydrogenated fats.

Environment

Your personal space should be considered next in the purification process. What have you accumulated as “stuff” over the years that no longer serve you? What’s in your space that really isn’t yours? Do you have a process in place that ensures optimal support for your clean, pure self? Consider the chemicals you choose for cleaning in your home. Are they natural essential oils or synthetic chemicals and toxic poisons? Are you using plastic containers, a microwave oven, non-stick cookware with PFOAs? Having a clean, toxin-free environment is part of the purification process. However, also consider sound, light, and people as part of the environment. How can you improve and purify in these areas?

Intention

As a part of Reiki training, I offers several methods of purification to assist in holding the energy for safe and sacred space, and to help clear unwanted energies from the etheric field as well as from our sacred spaces. Intention is a powerful tool to use for purification. Formulate how you would intend for your space to be clear of unwanted energies. Design a statement that represents what you really want. If this seems daunting, confusing, or overwhelming, start with a simple awareness of how you feel in any particular space or situation. Notice how you’d prefer to feel and go with words that support that feeling. For example, you might use words like, “I feel safe.”

Purification Tools

I’ve made a short list here of tools you can use for cleansing. Remember that these tools are intended more for empowerment as you go through the process of purification. They help you release, letting go of energies that no longer support your purity, wholeness, and manifestation of the highest expression of yourself.

Essential Oils

Plant medicine may be the easiest to use and the easiest to obtain. Use plants in their “original” form as leaves, roots, stems, and flowers. However, using pure therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living may be even more potent (and more valuable) for your needs. Whether in meditation, ceremony, or cleansing your environment, these essential oils work magically to bring about a feeling of wholeness and purity. Here are a few I like for sacred ceremony and purification. Use them in a diffuser, spritzer, or apply a drop directly to hands, gently rub in and inhale.

Purification

 

 

 

Sound Vibrations

Sound frequencies, whether using your own voice (as in chanting, singing, or toning) or selecting an instrument of sound such as a tuning fork or drum, provide many benefits for purification. Try, for example, a higher frequency of 4096 Hz to call in the angelic realm, or the frequency of OM to feel more grounded and connected to earth energy.

tuning forks

 

  • Angel – 4096 Hz
  • OM – 136.1 Hz
  • Solfeggio 528 – Magic and Transformation
  • Chanting, toning
  • Drum
  • Rattle

 

Let me know if you have any questions. I’d love to hear from you. Contact Rosemary.

 

Nitric Oxide and Healing

Self-healing Magic Built Into Your Body

We all know that the human body has the innate ability to heal itself. What seems to puzzle us is HOW that happens and learning what we can do to promote natural healing as well as staying healthy throughout all our challenges. Though it’s usually a good idea to have the support of your doctor for tests and expert medical information, I believe that’s a tiny fraction of the healing process.  Perhaps you’re like me and would rather support the body’s self-healing magic. If so, you’ll be interested to learn about nitric oxide, what it does, and what we can do on our own to use nitric oxide to promote healing.

A tiny molecule written chemically as NO, nitric oxide, was considered as “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 when Nobel prize winners, Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD published their research. Nitric oxide signals the cardiovascular and nervous systems to relax – an important function in view of hypertension, and stress. Clinically, nitric oxide is just coming into view as a gentle way to support health and healing – wherever blood flow is important.

What does Nitric Oxide do?

Nitric oxide stimulates blood vessels, muscles, and cells to relax. Take a deep breath now. Notice how tense you feel as you inhale, and perhaps hold your breath for a second. Now exhale completely. As you exhale, feel your shoulders, back, and body relax. Even your mind “lets go” for a moment. The feeling you have upon exhalation is similar to the cell’s experience as it produces, then releases, nitric oxide. When nitric oxide is present in small amounts, surrounding cells respond. In addition, nitric oxide becomes complexed to glutathione, hemoglobin and other proteins – then dissociated back to nitric oxide. As a result, nitric oxide benefits may be felt throughout the body as it’s easily transported as complex molecules.(1)

Research shows that nitric oxide affects the immune system, encouraging the germ-eating white blood cells to become active. Also, the cardiovascular system responds to the presence of nitric oxide by dilating blood vessels, thus promoting increased blood flow and reduced blood pressure (2). In addition, as an anti-inflammatory compound, research shows benefits as a pain-reliever and free-radical scavenger (preventing cell damage and aging). Bone and joint health as well as recovery from injury are supported with nitric oxide. Memory improvement, learning, and memory tasks benefit from the presence of nitric oxide (3).

Cells can, in fact, produce their own nitric oxide under the right circumstances. However, due to free-radical damage, the benefits of nitric oxide seem dwarfed to the task of keeping up. Your intention for healing then becomes more important as you focus on the WHOLE body, rather than on just one molecule, thing, practice, supplement, or modality. Fortunately, when you begin healing the WHOLE, you also support the tiny aspects of healing we take for granted – like nitric oxide production. You can promote the production of nitric oxide in your own body very simply. Here’s how.

How the Body Makes Nitric Oxide

Vibration holds the key to making and transporting nitric oxide within the body. Vibration exists everywhere as sound, movement, light, water, nutrients, plants and animals, etc. Therefore, supplements high in antioxidants have important value in helping to create nitric oxide. So does connecting to nature, like listening to crickets, birds, and trees blowing in the breeze, or waves lapping on the shore. Choose all of the “right” vibrations that help bring that feeling of relaxation – like the exhale we practiced early in the article.

Tuning forks may be one of the easiest ways to directly stimulate the production of nitrix oxide in the body. In particular, the 528 Hz tuning fork as an auditory tuner, or body tuners (weighted tuners that carry vibrations down the stem) have tremendous benefit. Whether you’re listening to the healing frequencies, or feeling the vibration of tuning forks placed directly on the body, nitric oxide produced by the cells begins its healing magic.

Your Aura Has a Body

Your Aura Has a Body (1)Your aura, the energy field that surrounds you, can be seen and felt by many intuitive people. You can also probably tell by how you personally feel if your energy feels low, stuck, lacking clarity and purpose, unwell, or missing vitality. So here’s the question I pose to you. Does your body, in its current physical state, create the aura? In other words, is your aura determined by how you feel? OR . . . is it the other way around? Does your energy body determine your physical state?

Research and human experiences help provide some of the answers. What sometimes happens after we have traumatic experiences such as divorce or death of a loved one, injuries and accidents, surgeries, “bad” news, and other “negative” situations? The body remembers these experiences and holds these memories within the cells. What we sometimes see is dis-ease AFTER trauma – physical manifestation AFTER emotional experiences.

Dr. Candace Pert, author of Molecules of Emotion, says, “We’re not just little hunks of meat. We’re vibrating like a tuning fork — we send out a vibration to other people. We broadcast and receive. Thus the emotions orchestrate the interactions among all our organs and systems to control that. . . . “As our feelings change, this mixture of peptides travels throughout your body and your brain. And they’re literally changing the chemistry of every cell in your body.”

Your Aura Has a Body is a 2 1/2 hour workshop which brings together instruction and experiences to develop the concept that we are energy bodies experiencing a vibration that manifests in physical form.

  • How can we use our senses to detect fluctuations, imbalances, and strengths in our aura.
  • How can working with the aura alter and improve our well being?
  • How can we work with energy tools to enhance our energy bodies?

YOUR AURA HAS A BODY is a wonderful introduction to using energy tools for clearing, protecting, and balancing the body. Check my calendar for upcoming events and classes.

How Energy Effects Your Health

I know how it is. Sometimes you just need a little more energy. But did you know that the energy, emotions, experiences, and life events you had 6 to 9 months ago are just now presenting themselves in your physical body?  Life events based around relationships – divorce, break-ups, etc. – can express themselves in the moment as sadness or grief. You might feel it in your heart. Energetically these events and feelings can become lodged or stuck, repeating themselves in your mind, manifesting in your dreams, and showing up as symptoms in the coming months.

Evidence of such physical manifestations have long been studied. Research shows a higher incidence of heart disease and breast cancer in women who’ve been divorced or widowed less than one year prior to diagnosis. It’s hard to ignore the possibility of such events helping to cause the most serious medical symptoms we see today. What, then, can be done as a means of helping to prevent such serious outcomes?

Vibrational Medicine

According to Dr. Richard Gerber, author of several books on Vibrational Medicine, it’s our etheric energy body that determines our physical nature. Instead of trying to correct or treat illnesses by treating symptoms, it’s much more effective (and perhaps even logical) to correct vibrations in the energy field, balancing chakras, opening blockages, and clearing lower vibrations (negative energies). These energy techniques may not only work as a means of preventing the manifestation of lower vibrations as symptoms, but may also act as a way to correct imbalances currently expressing themselves as disease.

The thought that energy medicine could work is not new. For the intellectual person who likes to read, I’d like to suggest any of Dr. Gerber’s books. You may also like Dr. Candace Pert’s book, Molecules of Emotion, or Dr. Bruce Lipton’s book, The Biology of Belief. For natural practitioners, vibrational medicine is a “no-brainer”. In fact, it’s important to note that getting out of your head (intellectualizing the relationship of health and disease), and into your energy body (feeling, knowing, experiencing, etc.) may be the best you can ever do for your health. The shift toward WHOLENESS reveals itself as better health.

Chakras and the Solfeggio Frequencies

Briefly, the chakra system of the body is based on the movement of energies through points along the back body. As energy crosses energy along this central channel it creates a vortex, or chakra. Each chakra is influenced by frequencies that either promote the flow of energy or block the energy. In my experience and training with the Energy Vitality Technique, Solfeggio frequencies help bring the body’s energy field into alignment with the correct frequency of wholeness and health.

 

Sound Healing

Vibrational Sound Therapy may be the answer you were hoping for. A non-invasive, non-chemical technique of introducing harmony in the body – either before symptoms appear or even after a diagnosis – offers no adverse side-effects and only potential for healing and recovery. Experience the Energy Vitality Technique with Rosemary Levesque at Second Nature Healing today.

 

Sound Healing with 528

How can you best support the concept of wholeness? Perhaps the answer is found in sound frequency. Science shows that the frequency of 528 Hz resonates with the body’s ability to heal itself, helping to repair DNA. You may also like the idea that 528 Hz is the vibration that brings balance to the heart. This Solfeggio frequency is a key component to helping release negative energies while bringing in new, positive vibrations.

How to use 528

One of the best ways to begin to use the 528 Solfeggio frequency is to tap the fork lightly to a clear quartz crystal. Hold the vibrating tuning fork close to the heart with the intention of release. You might say the affirmation, “I release all that no longer serves me.”Repeat this activity until you begin to feel an energetic release.

Next, hold the intention of positive energies of love while once again tapping the 528 tuning fork lightly on your clear quartz crystal. Hold the fork near the heart. Try saying the affirmation, “I bring in new vibrations for my greatest and highest good.” Repeat as often as you like.

The Beauty of 528

While listening to 528 Hz in this short exercise, you’re not only able to work in the moment. The sound, vibrations, and affirmations stay with you long after the exercise is complete. Close your eyes. Remember the sound. Recall the feelings of release and renewal.

Visible Sound

We’ve seen the effects of sound in our dimension, but we may not think much of it. Can a specific note, perhaps from a trained opera singer, shatter glass? Can soothing music relax tension in your muscles and change your expression? These are examples of the effects of sound on physical things. Using the “right”, harmonious vibrations can manifest well-being in our physical bodies. Have a look at the video at the end of this article.

Your Personal Tuners

When you attend our workshop, Your Aura Has a Body, you’ll be using a Personal Tuner Kit. These kits are available for sale at the time of the workshop, if you choose to take one home with you.
