You’ve probably heard me talking about Sonic Alchemy for awhile now. It’s where I take my love of music and my years of magickal practice and smoosh them together into a sound-infused playground to help you move through stuck energy and get to the breakthrough place.
Songs can change the world. I truly believe this. Sonic Alchemy is the way in which I endeavor to show you.
Rather than write a big long spiel about it, I figured I’d do just that – show you.
So here’s what I did. I recorded a musical meditation created with Tibetan Bowls and Acutonics tuning forks. It’s just over 11 minutes long, and I am going to explain how to get the most out of it right here.
First you’ll need to snag the sound file. Here it is.
Ready to play it? Okay. Here’s how to use it.
Begin by getting comfortable, and grab yourself a set of headphones, or at least, be sure to listen on good speakers. My crappy laptop speakers drop the lower tones, and you don’t want to miss those.
Press “play” and start breathing into the tone. As each tone hits, breathe deeply, taking the tone into your body. Allow it find its natural resonance in your body, letting it settle where it will. Most folks find that lower tones resonate with the lower parts of their body and higher tones resonate with the higher parts.
As you breathe in the tone, allow it to bathe you, and as you exhale, ride the tone, allowing it to sweep away any anxieties and tensions.
You’ll notice that gradually, higher tones are introduced, and then they fall way and allow the deeper tones to come into play again. This particular meditation is called a Sonic Alchemy Alignment and is meant to be used the way we would work with the Middle Pillar or a Triple Soul Alignment, meaning that the tone should bathe and balance you from the pelvic bowl, through the heart, out the crown of your head, and back down again. You will probably find that this happens quite naturally as you breathe each tone in and allow it to find its resonance in your body. I often joke that this is the lazy person’s guide to meditation, as the sound does most of the work for you.
You will notice a few places where there is almost total silence. Let yourself exhale fully in these places, emptying yourself of thought as best you can.
That’s it! Easy as pie! Repeat as often as you like, and feel free to take a nap. :+)
See? I bet you anything sound just changed your world!
