6 Simple Ways To Incorporate Sound Therapy Into Your Daily Life

“Sound can change our immune function. After either chanting or listening to certain forms of music, your interluken-1 level, an index of your immune system, goes up between 12.5% and 15%. Not only that, about 20 minutes after listening to this meditative type of music, immunoglobulin levels in your blood are significantly increased. There’s no part of our body not affected. Even our heart rate and blood pressure are lowered with certain forms of music. So, it affects not only our soul and our spirit, but it affects us on literally a cellular and sub-cellular level.”  

“Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in treatment of virtually any medical disorder” 

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, Cancer Specialist, Cornell Medical Center. 

Dr. Gaynor first came across the technique while treating a Tibetan monk in 1991. He then began incorporating singing bowls into his research and practice getting phenomenal results. 

Gongs: When played properly symbolize the beginning or end of a mindfulness experience 

Binaural Beat Tracks: A Binaural beat has two different pure-tone sine waves of low frequency with a subtle difference between each one. The frequency is 1500Hz or less with a difference of up to 40 Hz usually. Binaural beats are effective when using headphones or earbuds. This sound therapy is powerful before bedtime. You can even choose to fall asleep to it. 

Singing Bowls: Offer different frequencies and play different notes. Very helpful for various sound therapies, at-home meditation and yoga practices. Their sound therapy effects are powerful whether you listen to it live or via a recording. Link your breath with the sound and motion of playing a singing bowl for a moving sound meditation. 

Using Singing Bowls

Use singing bowls everyday. Incorporate it into your daily routine. Here are some suggestions: 

  1. Use them as part of your mindfulness & meditation practice

  2. Make them a part of your yoga practice 

  3. Bring them into your classroom to raise everyone's attention

  4. Use it at your events and activities 

  5. If you volunteer or serve in any capacity, bring your singing bowl along. It will help provide stress relief and peace of mind

  6. Take it to an arts and crafts session to help it stimulate creativity

It's really up to you how you choose to share your singing bowl. You are limited only by your imagination. 

Two Main Ways To Play A Singing Bowl 

  1. Striking: Balance the bowl on the palm of your hand. Do not grip it with your fingers. Let the striker gently hit the upper, outer rim of the bowl, and listen to the tone it produces. Feel the vibrations from the bowl as they move up your hand. Experiment with different strikes - from gentle taps to stronger firmer strikes. Listen to the sounds and see how they resonate with you. This itself can produce incredibly calming and relaxing effects. 

  2. Playing The Rim Of Your Bowl: Again, balance the bowl on the palm of your hand. If you grip the edge of the bowl you will dampen the sound or prevent it altogether. Use the striker to create a note. Hold the striker loosely and with a soft wrist run the striker around the rim. The sound will depend on how fast you go and how hard you press. Start slowly and “catch” the note as you run the striker around the rim of the bowl. You can build the note up in volume. Connect with the bowl and don’t worry if the vote falls or stops. Strike again and try once more. Notice how it feels in your body.  


4 Ways To Awaken Natural Forces In Our Homes

“We live in a rhythmic universe. Every part of nature has a unique language and its own rhythm - every flower, bird, and tree has its own rhythmic language; and rhythm is the underlying context that weaves all life together.” - Denise Linn

When we awaken the natural forces within our home, we activate the most powerful forces of nature within ourselves. The more our living spaces look and function like nature, the more likely we are to survive and thrive on earth. 

Bring the rhythm of nature indoors

Simulate natural cadences, cycles, patterns, shapes and forms of nature in your home. This activates dramatic shifts in energies and consequently within our lives

"Energy and geometry are tightly interwoven in the evolution and up-building of life."   - Tom Bender

Here are some ways 

SACRED GEOMETRY - include it in your decor. Sacred geometry is a powerful healing force that reaches inside us and deeply connects us to the harmony and symmetry of life

LABYRINTHS - incorporate it into wall hangings, decorative table tops, and necklace designs. A labyrinth is a sacred geometric pattern that serves as a center point for integrating the forces of earth and the forces of the cosmos. It also powerfully creates a union between inward intention and outward form 

DIVINE PROPORTION - Pythagoras’ golden mean - 1:1.618. This magical ratio is found everywhere in nature and all of life - from the nautilus shell to the proportions of the human body. You can arrange furniture in rooms in accordance with this ratio. It has a tremendous healing effect.

MANDALAS - sacred circles of transformation containing geometric forms. Use in paintings, pictures, on altars, on the floor, make a mandala in a sand tray.

  5. HANDMADE OBJECTS: These can bring wonderful life energy into a home esp. if you know the person who created it 

  6. NATURAL OBJECTS: Natural objects are great energizers. The closer an object is to the source of its origin the more energy it has.

  7. GODS & GODDESSES: Pictures and statues of Gods & Goddesses you feel connected to can have an inspiring effect

  8. MYSTIC SYMBOLS: If a particular symbol has a personal significance or you find yourself attracted to it, that’s an important clue from your subconscious. Using that symbol in your home will be powerful. Even though you may not fully comprehend the significance of the symbol go with the way a symbol makes you feel. 

  9. MIRRORS: These can fix unbalanced energy, deflect unwanted energies and even expand spaces

10 Tips For A Good Night's Sleep

If you are unable to get a good nights rest, you need to check your bedroom for these 10 things. 

Chances are there are electromagnetic disturbances causing the insomnia. 

The compass plant or the wild sunflower has a unique ability. The lower leaves of this plant line up edgewise to the North-South Magnetic Axis of the earth. 

“A newly emerging leaf grows in a random direction, but within two or three weeks it twists on its petiole clockwise or counterclockwise into a vertical position.”

Scientists have found magnetic sensors in the brains of birds and bees. Many animals and bacteria also orient themselves to the earth’s electromagnetic fields. 

We humans are sensitive to these natural electromagnetic fields - Our brains in alpha state (the calm meditative state where we get new ideas and inspiration) vibrate at 7.83 Hz. The Earth surrounding us naturally has vibrations at 7.83 Hz - The Schumann Resonance. 

All life on earth is designed to be in harmony with these natural electro-magnetic fields. 

When we humans are surrounded by man-made strong electromagnetic fields such as those emanating from smart devices, WiFi, cell phones, 5G, and cell towers, these unnatural radiations cause our DNA to split.. They disrupt the natural flows and energy systems of our body, eventually leading to serious disease. 

We are now surrounded by radiations a billion billion times (that’s 1 followed by 18 zeros!) more than our grandparents. This rise in ambient radiation is recent and has only happened in the last 20 years. Research of its health effects is only emerging.

While in today’s world it may be next to impossible to avoid all radiations, you can reduce your exposure at least whilst you sleep.

Live Life In Full Color!

Albert Szent-Györgyi, Nobel Prize winner and biochemist who discovered vitamin C experimented with color and found fantastic results. 

Different colored lights affect our enzymes and hormones. Colors even affect our molecular structure. 

Some colors increase the enzymatic reactions others deactivate them. Colors also affect enzyme movements. 

Dr. Max Luscher, color scientist, found that our reactions to color indicate our deep state of mind and also indicate our glandular imbalances. 

Research also shows that blind people can perceive colors through their hands/fingers. They are able to detect different sensations/tingling depending on the color

Repeated research also shows warmer colors - RED, YELLOW, and ORANGE increase blood pressure, pulse rate, and respiratory rate. BLUES, GREENS, and BLACKS decrease blood pressure, pulse rate and respiratory rate. 

Maternity wards routinely use BLUE light to treat neonatal jaundice. Before this discovery the only treatment was a risky procedure called exchange transfusion. 

PINK rooms are used to sedate prisoners in US prisons. It calms violent prisoners in a matter of seconds and also reduces muscle strength. Before this, sedative drugs and even brute strength had to be used to sedate aggressive inmates. 


  1. Color the walls bright clean colors, rather than muddy colors or grays. Clean colors are much more healing than murky colors.

  2. Switch out the grey, drizzling winter photos and paintings from your home and replace them with resplendent color and bright sunny photos.

  3. Use happy colors, bright yellows and cheerful colors on your walls and home furnishings and even in the clothes you choose to wear. 

Amazing aura photography shows that our auras become the color of the clothes we most often choose to wear. For example, a person mostly choosing purple clothes shows strong purples in their aura. We all need all the vibrant colors in our aura to be in balance. 

     4. Open the windows to let in as much light as possible

This will bring more happiness in to your life. It has an immediate uplifting effect on your health, mood, and life.

Our home is a template, a blueprint of our life. Use color to transform your health, mood, and life experience!
