Sound Bath

Today my mom and I had an appointment at the Singing Bowl. I personally have not had the opportunity to be bathed in sound for an hour with crystal bowls. I have my own and use them but this time I got to lay back and be immersed in sound. It was heavenly.

Mom and Me

I am into all kinds of different healing modalities. I am open to most things, let me put this way; I have not come across something that I wasn’t willing to try. My mom isn’t versed in the metaphysical world. I try explaining some things and she shrugs, because she doesn’t understand what I am talking about.

She is working on opening her mind and spirit, little by little. She has been resistant to many things I offer to share with her. She saw her friend had runes and wanted a set of her own. I just happen to buy some on a trip and never really used them, so I gifted them to her for Christmas last year. She uses them occasionally. I’ve offered Reiki for her and she says she isn’t ready. I give Reiki to her pup all the time.

so now of course, I am leaving, she is wanting to experience things differently and with me. She found this lady and was so excited about it she scheduled the appointment for the sound bath.

We drove an hour and a half to Cornish Maine, a small quaint town. We go inside and it smells heavenly. She welcomes us in and offers us a rose and holy basil water that was simply divine. My mom lays on the massage table and I take a spot on the floor. She begins with the drum and a prayer. Then we move into our personal journey as she plays all the bowls.

Each bowl is a different note. Typically for a sound bath, people have bowls that coincide with each chakra. Each chakra has a different note.

First Chakra, Root, the color is red and the vibration it gives is Note C

Second Chakra, Sacral, Orange, Note D

Third Chakra, Solar Plexus, Yellow, Note E

Fourth Chakra, Heart, Green, Note F

Fifth Chakra, Throat, Blue, Note G

Sixth Chakra, Third Eye, Indigo, Note A

Seventh Chakra, Crown, Violet, Note B

Everything is vibration and when the bowls are ringing, you can feel it’s vibration. As I sit here writing this my body is still physically vibrating. Not as much as I was directly after but I can still feel it. They say that you will feel the effects well up to 72 hours.

We laid there for an hour of high vibrations as she played each one and then simultaneously. It was awesome. She brought us back from our restful space with the drum at the end and a closing prayer. The minute she struck the drum, my body physically vibrated; because it was a different sound than than the crystal bowls. It was a much deeper vibration. In that moment I was wondering if I was in a body of water when she struck her drum in that moment, what would my vibration look like in the water.

My mom said she saw a white outline of light leave her body. Which is impressive, the fact that she was open enough to allow such things to release from her is so awesome. I am really proud of her. She is opening up. The lady pulled 1 tarot card for the each of us before we arrived. I didn’t look at the actual card till after. Mine said “Walking Away” the number on the card was 27. My mind was blown.

I am moving on the 27th, which was not planned due to the numbers or the moon. It just so happens that it will be the new moon that day and the number 2, 7 and 9 are my numbers in numerology. 2+7=9 and I have a double 1 (11) and 7 tattooed on my wrists.

On our way there I had just purchased Louise Hay’s “You can Heal your Life”. So we were listening to it on the way there. I figured what a great way for her to hear someone so well known in the metaphysical world in my car on the way to have a sound bath.

We were very hungry afterwards and had a nice late lunch early dinner. We were hungry before the session but starving after. I find that after I do any kind of healing work, I am usually VERY hungry after.

Our drive home consisted of pure joy, in my opinion. I had a great day with my mom and enjoyed the healing that today was. So much gratitude.

The way I eat…in this moment

It’s been 5 days since being home and I sort of feel lighter. lol. I have changed the way I eat. I go to yoga in the morning and then I come home and have a protein shake with all my vitamins in it (kale, organic protein powder, fruits and berries, cucumber, carrots, my Green Vibrance powdered vitamins). Then around noon I’m hungry so sometimes I’ll make 5 eggs, because that’s totally perfect for me, or I just picked up my chicken from trader joe’s and I will make plain tacos with avocado on a corn tortilla. To me, they are very yummy.

I used to eat with sauces and dressings but now I don’t care too much for the extras. I believe, in my own humble opinion, that whatever you eat should taste amazing without all the condiments.

And then when I leave for work I will eat either tacos or my fake delicious meatless burger patty atop spinach, mozz cheese, tomatoes, and cucumbers. And it is good! So are the tacos, but when I make the salad yummmm.

When I get snacky, I eat a granola bar or pineapple or both. But I completely took out fried foods and I am trying not to go out to eat everyday like I was doing previous. It’s too easy to have someone make your food and pick it up. But for me that means I’m eating tons of pizza or sandwiches. Those are really delicious but really heavy.

I am tired of feeling heavy; and that is why I am eating in. And this is how I eat in. I am not a big candy eater, or sugar fanatic but occasionally I will crave sweets. I won’t go out of my way to buy them, ever. But if they are wherever I am in the moment I may or may not buy something sweet and delicious.

When I go out for dinner and not pick up, I tend to look at the dessert menu first only because it is rare for me to go out to dinner solo, so when I do go out and treat myself I will partake in the dessert action. However I will eat dessert first and dinner after, I just take half of my dinner home for another meal! hahaha

This is my first week starting over and so far I feel good and I get hungry more often but I snack on light healthy stuff, because that’s all I have. I do not even have any bread in the house. Some days, I wish I did but I’m glad I don’t because I know how bread makes me feel after eating it.

I work in a restaurant of fried foods and bread. I stopped eating all of that and the snacking at work because it makes me feel yucky. And what I definitely know is that the way I am eating now is way better than what I was doing. As I sit here and eat the leftover coconut cream pie my coworker gave me!!!
