Do you have hip and shoulder pain?
Find that your joints feel tight and stiff as you go about your day?
Midday slump zapping your energy?
Music is a powerful pick me up.
But few people know that it can actually heal your body.
Watch this week's 13-minute love letter video to begin soundbathing -- which is the act of clearing your energy with sound!
"I can't seem to keep my focus in the afternoon."
This week, source wants you to know about soundbathing.
Have you heard of this? Soundbathing. Particularly as a form of self-care and self-energy treatment.
If you go to yoga at your local yoga studio, perhaps they may offer alternative session, such as like a crystal ball meditation or a gong meditation. Those have to do ... or a chanting, even. Those all have to do with soundbathing and sound or vibrational therapy.
I think another word for that is radionics, the study of vibration and how that affects the human energetic field.
Soundbathing, however, you don't have to wait for a class to be offered for you to go and bathe in vibrational realignment and clearing.
Sound is everywhere. Music, music therapy is a form of soundbathing. Music therapy is an energy therapy, a vibrational therapy.
Yes, it's also a psychological, there's a whole branch of psychology that has to do with music therapy and art therapy. The power of music to change and lift and heal our mood, to convey how we feel and help us process pent-up emotions and allow them to free.
Music can liberate us from a heavy mood, or can take us from a happy mood to over the moon.
Certain types of music can even have the opposite effect. We're feeling great and we walk into this wall of sound and energy.
They've done the experiments of playing classical music for plants verus playing heavy metal for plants. The heavy metal plants die faster and droop faster than the classical plants, which thrive and get so bright and happy.
Side note, I love heavy metal, I grew up on it. I grew up listening to Iron Maiden, and Pantera, and Judas Priest and all of that, so maybe I'm a strange plant, but I thrive on that mess. I love it! I love it, I love it. The drama, it's great.
It's a beautiful thing, music. But the act of soundbathing, in particular, is allowing the vibrations of the music, the sounds.
Even if it doesn't necessarily have a chorus and a hook and a melody or anything, but maybe it is tonal music that they have binaural frequencies that they just play, it's not necessarily a song, but it's a vibrational frequency that you can listen to or play on the big speaker. We want the big speaker or the car, for you to be totally bathed in that vibration.
What happens is is your whole body listens now.
Think of inside your ears. There's the hammer and the anvil and the drum, all those little bones that every time a sound vibrates, like a vibration comes into your ear, the hammer goes da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da inside of your ear and sends electrical signals into your brain and down through your central nervous system to say, "Huh, I hear music. Oh, those are words," or, "Uh, that's in the key of B-flat." If you caught that, send me an email back.
Here's the thing. Be kind to yourself, because you think you only hear with your ears, but it's just bones moving inside of your ears that register vibration as sound.
You have bones in other parts of your body. You have bones, in fact, throughout your entire body!
When you soundbathe, this is the practice of listening with all of your bones and allowing your entire body to be immersed.
It bathes, soaking in the beauty of that music or aligning completely with that vibration, that tone moving through your body. They even have vibrational tones according to each one of the chakras that helps you to align with that chakra. In fact, it's according to the scale. There's C, and there's G, and that has different chakra alignments.
When you soundbathe, this week in particular, source is saying, "Do it when you are traveling."
You want to soundbathe at least once per a day. Chances are you will be traveling once per a day, yes? If you're driving, especially if you're driving by yourself, you are in an advantage in this, but if you are not by yourself, headphones.
The best way to soundbathe, however, is not with headphones on, because you want more of the bones of your body to register the vibration, especially bass.
Caveat. One of my students, she's very sensitive to sound. This one's not for you, my dear! I know that your ears are going to be like, "I can't take this." For the rest of us, who can take hearing sound ... she's exceptionally sensitive to it. She's different than others. She's even better. She's even more sensitive. It's so good, so powerful.
For the rest of us, you want to really feel the music and listen with different parts of your body, especially (ninja tip incoming) especially if that area of your body is in pain.
You need to soundbathe and listen with the bones of that area of your body even more.
I just heard someone in the energy say, "Victoria, listen with my bones? How do I do that?" It takes a little bit of practice, a little bit of mindfulness.
What I want you to do to practice is stand in front of a good speaker, or even sit with your car in park while really good bass filled song is playing and that vibration, you hear it up here.
Yes, and it shakes all of the bones up and around this area of your head. You may even feel your brain rattle, depending on how loud you're listening. I come from a musical family, so there's only one volume setting and that's all the way up and the bass is all the way up. My father was a bassist.
Here's the thing. As you sit there and listen to the music, notice that there's a vibration up here and then start to hear the sound, that similar vibration, maybe down in your chest, maybe in your arms, maybe in your pelvis and also maybe in your legs or even your feet. Maybe in your hands.
Then once you get used to hearing that, then if it's your shoulders that hurt, listen with that area.
Listen, I would say, is in quotations when I say that. It's not like you have ears on your shoulders, but you do have bones in your shoulders, which is what registers vibration. Get it?
The oracle card that wanted to come forward this week is Archangel Raphael healing. When I asked the decks, one of the 19 that are here and counting, "Who wants to come forward?" This one.
I literally felt electricity coming off the decks, so apparently Archangel Raphael, you have something to say about music and soundbathing.
Oh my, caffeine-free!
Yes. Uh, I see! Thank you. The reading is, "Dear Archangel Raphael, I ask that you cut my cords of attachment to caffeine so that I may honor my body's natural energy rhythms without chemicals." Here is where we're going to leave off.
The guides say that if you're looking for an energy pick-me-up and to lift your energy up. I know, before we talked about flower therapy as one way to give yourself an energy shot, but this soundbathing is actually another really powerful way to raise your energy levels, especially in that mid-day slump.
Usually when we go to reach for caffeine, or Red Bull, or sweets, or a carb or something to ingest, we try to stuff energy into ourselves. Actually, if you were to just soundbathe, give yourself five minutes.
Put on a five minute song that you just love and can't resist. Turn that on first. See how your energy response, if you get an energy pick-me-up just from hearing that music and feeling it in your body, and allowing it to move through you.
Then, if you need to still grab for the caffeine, fine, go for it, but try this out, run an experiment first.
Comment below, send me an email back at email@example.com, how did your experiment go?
What is your soundbathing song? What did you choose to vibrate with? Did you want any suggestions? I have got playlist on playlist on playlist. I'm dishing them out all the time to my students.
I'm excited to hear your stories of how your experiment went and if you could hear with the bones of your feet. I'm so excited for you.
I'm sending you so much love and positive vibrations. I'll see you next week. Bye!
In Love and Light,
Just for Today...
Listen to music you love up loud in your car.
Feel the vibrations of the song move through your body.
Notice how you feel at that moment - you're already healing!
SHARE THIS! You’d be surprised how many people you know right now are in desperate need of healing and could use this information to change their life. If you can read this, you know someone who needs this Love Letter!
