One of the first questions a Shaman will ask upon visiting them for healing is, “When did you stop singing?”
Sound heals. When we sing, whether it be while driving or showering, for ourselves or others, sound heals us and others on deep levels.
In India, traditional yoga practices include chanting; mantra is imbedded into the practice. Chanting also serves as a meditative practice and it has been shown to bring healing to those that chant, while also raising the vibration of the room.
It also has been linked to helping those with stuttering conditions.
The quote by the revered Swami Satchinanada confirms the healing power of sound,
“The efficacy of sound is well proven… key practice behind almost all the religions….Your jewelry is cleaned with ultrasound…mantra japa practice is the same. Repeating ‘Om Shanti’ will fill your system with vitality, with health, and happiness.”
With sound we have the ability to make others laugh, or cry. My mother continues to say that her plants thrive because she talks, and sings to them, rather than her merely having a, “green thumb.”
This video of the doctor singing to the babies he delivers, and even paying visits to their room to sing to them, welcoming them to our world through song, is heart touching.
When he sings, Louis Armstrong’s, “What a Wonderful World,” I teared a little.
I hope you remember to keep singing, and if you practice yoga, take up a chanting practice as well, if you haven’t already.
The most physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels can only be reached by sound.
