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.

Feeling Fresh…

Sometime last week I had a facial, my friend mentioned it and we were gonna go together. Didn’t work out. So I scheduled one on my own. I went for an express facial, mind you I haven’t had a facial in over 5 years. I didn’t remember much of what they did but it felt good.

I have been tanning because I am in New England and there is no warmth from the sun and I just moved here from California. So tanning makes me feel really good. But after tanning a few days and several years of old skin, I was due for a facial. I could feel it.

I went to GLOW, here in York Maine. Amazing place. Everyone who works there is amazing and super friendly and kind. I went in and met Darcy. She gave me an express facial for 30 minutes which I feel was more like 45 mins. So as she is doing her thing I ask her a bunch of questions.

“What can I do in between facials and how often should do people get facials?” She offered several suggestions. Apparently people get facials anywhere from twice a month to every change of season. She suggested I use a fruit enzyme mask and something pumpkin. I didn’t remember what she said exactly. I asked her where I can purchase such things, she said any natural health food store. There happens to be one in Kittery, called Rising Tide Natural foods. Cute little shop. While I was in there perusing for my pumpkin stuff and enzyme mask I found amazing Rose Oil from NOW. Wow that stuff smells exactly like roses. I have been on the hunt for an inexpensive rose oil for years. This is it…it’s called rose absolute. YUMMM

After finding that, I found the isle with all the skin care items. I found the fruit enzyme but they were sold out. Must be good, I thought to myself. Then I saw on the side that they had pumpkin face cream. BOOM! They had something pumpkin, just as prescribed by Darcy. They had a tester out and I tried it. My face was in heaven. However I wanted to buy them both at the same time so I can use them simultaneously.

I went back after the 4 days the lady said the enzyme mask would be there and it still wasn’t there. I had gone to TJ Maxx and Marshals to search for something similar and didn’t find anything, but I still bought a mask anyways. So several days later I go back to the natural food store and there still didn’t have the enzyme mask, so I bought the pumpkin cream. I figured I had a mask so might as well. I picked it up and took it to the counter. The dude rang it up and said aloud, $29.89. I made one of those you have got to be kidding me faces and said “whoa!” I never looked at the price. I looked down and said, “my face LOVES it, I must honor my face!”.

So I bought it happy joyous and free. My face is super happy and every time I put it on my face thanks me. Self Care…That’s what that’s about. Real Talk.

Moral of the story is, whenever my body wants or needs something, I will listen and take good care of her. Because we only have one body in this lifetime to have. And I am only getting younger!!!

Boo Yeah!

Love, Light and Healing,
