“Sound will be the future of medicine.” ~ Edgar Cayce
As a life-long skeptic, the idea sound could heal or change consciousness seemed far fetch. Years later, after becoming a musician and exploring the science of sound and vibration, I am totally certain that sound changes consciousness.
When I lead yoga nidra sound meditations, I guide people into the experience of how sound can cause an immediate shift in emotional states.
This simple technique can open the eyes and heart of any skeptic in less than a minute.
I call it the “HAHA mantra,” and I start every day with it to give myself a boost in hope, happiness and energy.
Say, HA … from the gut.
And again … except twice … HA HA
And again … three times … HA HA HA
And again … four times … HA HA HA HA HA
And then five times … HA HA HA HA HA HA
As you continue to say it, change the pitch and loudness of the HA.
Allow the ridiculousness of the sound practice to bring a smile to your face.
Allow the mood to uplift.
Laugh like Woody wood pecker.
Say HA in any combination of sounds that you feel like, and allow it to impact you.
Laugh with exaggeration, and allow the shift in emotions to occur.
The heart will brighten, the face will relax, and stress will be alleviated.
Allow the resistance to fade.
Observe the shift in consciousness.
It is essential to allow the resistance to fade and to notice and appreciate the difference in feelings.
Recognize how if one simple sound can change a mood so quickly, the result of sentences, words and other thoughts and their emotional impact on oneself and others.
