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.

I have used sound and vibration to address and overcome worrisome health issues such as aberrant cells, foot pain and high levels of emotional stress. My clients have found sustained relief from depression, anxiety, negative thinking, high blood pressure, mental fog, sprains, injuries and many other conditions.
It has been said that stress is responsible for 90% of all illness and disease. Only 10% is attributed to genetic factors. Sound healing has been used since ancient times as a highly effective stress reducing modality.
Sound and vibration healing is still an effective means for empowering health and overall well-being in today’s modern world. In this Youtube video, Dr. Bruce Lipton explains exactly why and how sound healing works. I encourage you to watch the whole video. In case you are short on time. I have jotted down a few of Dr. Lipton’s important talking points.
He explains that vibrational energy is more effective at delivering information to a biological system than a chemical messenger (standard medication) is. When a chemical messenger binds with something in order for it to work it loses 98% of information during the chemical reaction of binding. This means that only 2% of necessary information is being carried to the system with a chemical messenger. No such loss exists when using vibrational energy to carry a message to the body. A vibrational message sends 100% of information to the system and it does so at a much faster rate. He also goes onto explain that chemical signals travel at about 1 foot per second whereas vibration travels at 186,000 miles per second. So in terms of transferring information, vibration is 100x more efficient than a chemical signal.
Sound healing uses the principle of constructive interference. This is when one energy couples with another to enhance it: bringing harmony and coherence where there is disharmony or incoherence. This is why one can feel so good after a constructive sound session.
Sound healing is not a replacement for professional medical help. It is a complement to Western medicine. It also falls into the category of alternative medicine for those seeking a non-medical approach to mind-body health.
Years ago, I tended to blame others or outside circumstances for the bulk of my problems. Thoughts like, “if only he loved me” or “if only I got that specialized degree … things would surely be better”. The fact of the matter is that incessant negative thinking only drove me deeper into a low frequency energy state where I could only imagine the proverbial glass as being half full.
It wasn’t until years later that I discovered many miracles can occur when one shifts energetically to a higher frequency state of being. I’m not talking about simple positive thinking or gratitude lists here. I am talking about a shift that goes beyond the intellect. A shift that runs deep – on the cellular, subconscious and soul levels. Enter the power of sound and vibrational healing.
If you aren’t happy with the results that your current thoughts, emotions and body are stuck in then you may want to take action in shifting your resonant operating frequency (ROF): the frequency your body and mind are operating in most often. Stress, illness, toxic thoughts or prior substance abuse negatively alter ROF leaving one to feel less than ok. According to Cymatic therapy expert, Chris Gibbs, symptoms such as pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression and lack of mental focus are just some of the health issues that result from lowered ROF.
Sound and vibrational sessions entrain the mind and body to healthier resonant frequency states. A healing shift can occur when sound is coupled with focused intention during a deeply relaxed state. It is common to experience a lightness of being that comes with an expansion in consciousness. Motivation and overall wellness are added bonuses. It is healing that runs deep – on the cellular, subconscious and soul levels. This is the power of sound.
An experienced sound or Cymatic practitioner will tailor sessions to address your particular emotional and/or physical pain cycle. They will also provide you with new thought ancient wisdom tools to help sustain the frequency shift going forward.
