It is Halloween, a time for horror flicks, scary decorations and fun. This season provides short-term spooks but what happens when small every day fears lurk steadily in the back-drop of your life?
Fear of the future, or of the unknown can silently dictate what we can or can’t do. It can stop us from reaching our goals or from setting them in the first place. Subconscious fears can stop us from taking action even when we know it is good for us to do so.
This is a good time of year to take stock of both our conscious and subconscious fears. Taking the time to acknowledge and face our fears will help diminish their power over us. Sound is a wonderful mechanism for tapping into the subconscious as certain frequencies bring us effortlessly into deep alpha and theta meditative states.
This Halloween weekend we are offering a Guided Sound Journey to help transform Fears into Freedom. In the spirit of Halloween, we will also have a guest Channeler who will deliver some uplifting messages along with the healing frequencies. For more info see Event Details
A Sound Bath is a popular mode of self-care these days because it is deeply relaxing, rejuvenating and meditative at the same time. The practice of sound bathing is passive. Participants simply lie down on their back to “bathe” in a healing mix of vibro-acoustic sound. Once immersed in these rich healing sounds, it is easy to let go of worries and dive deep into a place of pure relaxation and bliss. This feeling of sweet serenity and well-being can last for many hours or even days afterwards.
The combination of frequencies brought on by healing instruments such as singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, drums, gongs and the human voice work together to entrain the brain and body to a calm and meditative state. Vibrations help to remove any discordant or incoherent energy in the body or auric field thus bringing one into a state of harmony and balance. Negative thought patterns melt away as the sounds bring the mind to a meditative still-point. This is perfect for those who find traditional forms of meditation both uncomfortable and challenging. A Sound Bath is a perfect remedy for when life feels particularly stressful or for when you simply want to indulge in the act of self-care.
There are quite a few options for trying a sound bath in Los Angeles.
The Sound Code offers affordable sound bath events and individualized sound bath experiences at this time.
The medical community is now realizing that cortisone shots can lead to rapid joint deterioration and osteoarthritis. Years ago a link had also been found between cortisone and the development of osteoporosis (Purdy).
Luckily for me, as an intuitive, I instinctively knew to decline numerous suggestions to get cortisone shots for a painful toe joint condition brought on by both genetics and the practice of daily Ashtanga yoga aerial-style jump backs.
Since then, I have successfully used sound, vibration and energy medicine to address my foot pain and so much more. I am happy to report living an active life once again doing yoga (sans jump backs) without the need to continue wearing clunky orthotics or the need to take bone degenerative or highly addictive pain medication such as Vicodin or Oxycontin. Yes, the medical community is now realizing that cortisone shots can lead to rapid joint degeneration, osteoarthritis and other severe complications (Donnelly).
At The Sound Code, there are two different program that address both pain and inflammation. The 3-in-1 Vibration program offers specific audible and inaudible frequencies that are safe for diminishing inflammation in the body. The program includes energy work such as Reiki and bio-energetic emotional clearing along with focused intention setting. The integration of all these components sets a strong foundation for healing. Sound Energy + Intention = Healing. The 2-In-1 Vibration Therapy program is for those who wish to forego the emotional clearing element. Both programs are complimentary to western medicine or an alternative to it for those seeking a drug-free, non-addictive, non-invasive and holistic approach to managing pain.

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.

Is the news of the world bringing you down? The state of politics, violence, and natural disasters can move us into a state of high alert and fear. The fear vibration is an extremely low frequency and if we stay there for too long it will inevitably bring us down along with it.
At The Sound Code we understand the deleterious effects of lowered vibrational states on physiology: the immune system becomes suppressed, inflammation proliferates, mental, physical and emotional pain take up residence.
Better health and balanced living can begin once we move from lower emotional frequencies such as fear and grief to higher emotional frequency states such as love, trust and gratitude. A vibrational shift can mean the difference between simply trudging along in your daily life to that of living a life of vibrant health and joy! Make the shift today.
