Sound healing is one of the most potent healing modalities available. Because our reality exists based on different frequencies and vibrations, accessing tools that allow us to tune in to our surroundings are extremely effective and powerful. And the good news is that it is also quite simple to learn without spending lots of extra time and money.
You truly are your own best healer, and you can learn how to access your gifts so that you can facilitate your own healing and hold yourself in radiant light.
First and foremost, know that there’s absolutely no right or wrong way to practice any kind of energy healing work. It’s truly about tuning into your own Self to feel what is most necessary for your healing, and this can be practiced by regular meditation that promotes deep listening.
Start by tuning into the frequency of the Earth – 432 Hertz (Hz). While most music is tuned to the standard of 440 Hz, when listening to music tuned to 432 Hz, many experience a noticeably different emotional reaction which includes deep inner peace, and connection to their surroundings. This frequency is known to be the the heartbeat of the Earth, and as you are also a part of Mother Nature, listening to music at this frequency puts you in sync with the Earth and her systems. Try meditating to music that is tuned at 432 Hz at least 5-10 minutes per day to develop sensitivity to sound frequencies and the beauty of your surroundings.

If you find yourself frequently experiencing negative feelings and stories, they may actually be trapped in the body. These stories and emotions are easily removable though, and often need a little boost and a taste of a higher vibrational reality in order to begin to dislodge. One of the most powerful tools to use for this is the sound currents from the mantra “Sa Ta Na Ma”.
As you project this mantra out loud with rhythmic and forceful presence, the vibrational currents go into the hypothalamus where negative thought patterns are born, and literally rewire the neural pathways, causing you to feel extremely elevated in the experience of a new, more positive reality. This process can begin in as little as 1-3 minutes, and can also be practiced silently as soon as any negative, unsupportive, destructive thought patterns surface.
If you are experiencing heightened anxiety or an overly active mind, try binaural beats. Binaural beats simultaneously send marginally different sound frequencies through headphones. Upon hearing two tones of different frequencies – sent simultaneously to the left and right ears – the brain perceives a third tone based on the mathematical difference between the two frequencies. For example, if 200 Hz are sent to the left ear, and 205 Hz are sent to the right ear, the brain processes these and perceives a new frequency of 5 Hz. The frequency of 5 Hz is associated with the Theta brain wave state, which facilitates deep relaxation, inner peace, and a calm mind.
Sound can also accelerate the spiritual process by sharpening the intuition and expanding awareness. Use the sound current of “Aum”, or “Om” in order to experience this expansion and dramatic rise in personal vibration. The sound current from this frequency is believed to be the one of the most important sounds of the universe, and has been chanted for thousands of years. This powerful sound current, when chanted out loud, purifies your body and environment, and you can amplify this by listening to the “Om” at 432 Hz. The effects of “Om” are immediate, and will hold lasting impressions if it is chanted regularly so that the sacred current can anchor into your system.
With the use of sound healing, you have the capacity to handle whatever it is that you are experiencing. You are infinitely capable of being in this body, at this time, in this time-space reality. Sound vibrations and frequencies rewire your system and thus remind you that you can take whatever comes your way in a strong, graceful, and deeply loving state.
These are just a few of the infinite ways that sound can easily and quickly support you and hold you in its sacred, cohesive, indestructible currents. Like anything, this takes practice, so be patient and trust the process. Try asking your body what vibration it needs – it will never steer you wrong. And as you continue to tune yourself to the divine vibrations that are all around you all the time, you become more connected to your higher self, and are literally elevating the vibration of the planet as a result.
Soak in the stillness and begin to tune in. All of the sounds of the universe are so beautiful, and they await your awareness.
