Emotions and sound therapy
Repressed emotions refer to emotions that you unconsciously avoid. These differ from suppressed emotions, which are feelings you purposely avoid because you don’t know exactly how to deal with them.
Repressed emotions, don’t get a chance to be processed. But that doesn’t mean they simply disappear. Instead, they might show up as a range of psychological or physical symptoms.
Emotions need to be expressed, released and transmuted and this is where sound therapy plays a vital role. In his book Power vs. Force, David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D presents a diagram of vibrational states of being and anger is shown as 150 Hz and shows that most people are living below 200 hz and therefore unable to experience emotions such as love and hope. I have come to recognise the importance of raising your vibration and there’s no better way than with sound therapy.
“Everything in life is vibration.” –Albert Einstein
Everything in the universe is made up of molecules vibrating at different speeds. This includes trees, bodies, rocks, animals, thoughts, and emotions. Human vibrations are composed of everything from physical matter to the way you communicate the thoughts you think. In simple terms, some molecules vibrate faster and some vibrate slower; there are higher vibrations and lower vibrations.
Sound is one of the most powerful healing modalities in energy medicine; not only does it have the capability to help you reach your core frequency, but it also connects you to your higher energies and through a process of entrainment and resonance it can change your emotional frequency.
Using waves of sound, a sound healer will create frequencies that will wash through your body, your cells, and raise your vibration with their powerful harmonies, frequencies and strength.
Things you can try right now:
You can also get started practicing emotional expression on your own by trying these steps:
Check in. Ask yourself how you feel right now. If you have a hard time speaking your emotions at first, trying using words or colors in a journal or piece of art. You can even find a song that matches your mood.
Use “I” statements. Practice expressing your feelings with phrases like “I feel confused. I feel nervous. I feel terrified.”
Focus on the positive. It might seem easier to name and embrace positive emotions at first, and that’s OK. The goal is to get more comfortable with all of your emotions, and small steps help.
Let go of judgement. No matter what emotion you’re feeling, avoid judging yourself or telling yourself you shouldn’t feel a certain way. Instead, try finding a reason for the feeling: “I feel nervous because I’m about to have my yearly performance review.”
Make it a habit. Practice naming and sharing your emotions with the people you feel closest to. Encourage them to share their feelings, too.
Sound healing is having a major moment right now—but it’s actually been used by cultures like the Aboriginal peoples in Australia and Tibetan monks for centuries. It is less challenging than meditation and takes you into deeper states of calm.
