Filling the Void in Recovery with Sound Healing
Why is it that despite outward signs of success, praise and fame in a given career and or in other areas of life, some can’t seem to shake off the feeling that something is terribly wrong or missing in their lives? This is as true for those in recovery as it is for a practicing addict. Regardless of the amount of time spent in recovery, many in 12 steps continue to suffer, often quietly, from unresolved emotions or the feeling that something just isn’t quite right as if there were some emptiness or a void that needs filling.
Author and sacred music producer Dr. Michael Levy writes about the importance of the formative years for developing healthy emotional responsiveness later in life. If during the first 11 years of life a child experiences gaps in receiving a consistent high quality of love from their prominent care giver/s the child will most likely go on to feel the repercussions of this missing love later in life. He goes on to add that many of us find that there is “a hole, an inner feeling of rejection, a void in our hearts” that “drives us to search for it our entire lives without even knowing what we are looking for”. (Levry)
For many in recovery the formative years consist of varying levels of dysfunction peppered with drug, alcohol, physical and or emotional abuse. So, if Dr. Levry’s assessment is correct, then it comes as no surprise that this feeling of living life with a persistent void is all too familiar.
The Sound in Recovery program is a unique sound and vibration-based program designed to locate and shift disturbances in the energy body due to stored emotional pain and years of toxic stress. Throughout the 8-week process, a sound and energy practitioner works closely to entrain incoherent disturbances in your energy field to a state of coherence. Healing sound frequencies entrain the body back to a prime optimal resonant state so that overall healing can occur. In addition, clients receive one-on-one coaching in a series of action-oriented steps for integrating the high vibrational shift in their lives.
Carrying emotional pain and trauma in the energy body is like carrying around dead weight. It prevents us from fully enjoying what is going well in our lives and it also prevents us from living in the present. If left unchecked, energetic disturbances eventually embed themselves in the physical and mental body and manifest as pain related dis-ease or chronic stress issues such as anxiety and depression. The onset of this can be the subtle yet constant feeling that there exists a void or absence of sorts within. Something is wrong even when we can’t name just what that something is. Sound and vibrational healing modalities yield results in a gentle yet profound way often igniting a newfound sense of freedom, lightness of being and a sustained sense of over-all well-being.
