You hear the dreaded words,”We need to talk“. You missed the FINAL submission deadline and to top it all off your favorite jeans are feeling way to snug after last night’s Italian fiesta. As life throws it’s steady stream of challenges, you find that your shadow side begins a slow and steady take over as if you were Dr. Jeckyll battling Mr. Hyde.
The shadow is the side of ourselves we don’t like to associate as part of our identity. Psychologist Carl Jung wrote, “Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is” (Jung, 1938, p. 131). It is made up of fears, shame, guilt, grief, resentments, jealousy, anger and other aspects we don’t like to freely admit as part of our make-up. Our shadow, unmanaged can overwhelm us with brute force or it may simply linger or hide unconsciously in the mind and body.
Sound healing and vibrational shifting support tools such as breath work, guided visualization, meditation, bio-tuning and energy work entrain the body and brain to a relaxed and healthier resonant state. This foundation is key to experiencing unconditional presence and for diminishing the power of the shadow over us.
Significant shifts are usually felt within the first week or two of partaking in a customized sound & vibrational based support program. It takes roughly eight weeks for a healthier resonance to be sustained so that one is better equipped to integrate the shadow. Results are cumulative, subtle and yet profound.

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.

An estimated 16.2 million Americans suffer from depression. Those in recovery are twice as likely to suffer from it or other mood disorders when compared to the general population. Recognized as a loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities, depression is often accompanied with overwhelming sadness and problems in the areas of sleeping, eating, concentration, energy, and self-worth. (NIH.gov)
Working with an experienced mental health professional when experiencing depression is always recommended. This is especially true when there is a tendency towards suicidal ideation or when there is a diagnosis of bi-polar or psychotic depression.
Complementary to working with a licensed therapist, support for depression can also be found in the growing field of alternative medicine. Sound and vibrational wellness tools such as Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy, Cymatic therapy, and traditional sound healing instruments can all address the symptoms of depression without using medication.
They do this by stimulating the nerves and cells of the body and brain with gentle and nurturing frequencies. A combination of sound and earth-based geomagnetic waves power up the electrical charge and resonant frequency states of all the body’s cells. Like exercise, health frequencies keep cells fit, charged and functioning within their range of optimal wellness. This cellular exercise provides soothing regenerative support to the brain and body that is welcome relief after years of the damaging effects of long time drug or alcohol use. Repeated sessions have a cumulative effect of entraining the brain and body to a state of coherence and wellness that can be sustained when accompanied by a healthy lifestyle.
In addition to knowing how to use such healing instruments, an experienced sound and energy medicine practitioner will assist with the important task of releasing any trapped emotions that reside within the physical or energetic body of the affected client. According to vibrational medicine and new thought ancient wisdom teachings, negative trapped emotions can lower a person’s overall vibration; directly contributing to depressed or other low vibrational states such as fear, anger, self-pity…etc. Sound healing works by entraining the body and brain to higher and healthier frequency states. As a result of cumulative sessions, one can experience the true gifts of vibrant health, a relaxed and clear mindset and an overall feeling of expanded awareness.
You live life by the book. You work a program and you have a spiritual practice. But something still isn’t right. Years of toxic negative mental programming, from childhood or from your surroundings, keep you stuck in a perpetual state of stinking thinking? Limited beliefs permeate who you can be and what you can accomplish. These beliefs color your relationships, finances, your health and simply how you show up in the world.
Sound and vibration are invaluable tools for elevating consciousness. Frequencies entrain the physical and energy body to a place of coherence, optimal wellness, and deep states of relaxation so that the subconscious mind can finally free itself of negative programming.

You’ve done the therapy, self-help and have even worked the 12 Steps only to find that your life is still very much colored by painful thoughts and emotions that bring with them the pattern of self-sabotaging behavior.
