Changing The Vibe

Some of the most powerful things that affect our feelings for the day are not the traffic or the people that push our buttons, but the visuals and sounds around us. Yes, the traffic and the  A - holes are what push our buttons, but a color or a sound can change the level of tension FAST.

Vibration, whether riding in a car, or flying on a plane tends to put babies to sleep. That's because vibration touches every cell in the body.

An article found on explains how sound therapy is used for stress because it not only soothes our physical body, but our emotional body as well Sound can be used to unlock blocked emotions.

The Deepak Chopra Center in California has found that the sound of Himalayan Singing Bowls and Gongs are a beneficial part of their cancer treatments. They claim that the sound of the bowls are chemically metabolized in the body as the endogenous opiod which works in pain reduction.

Some known benefits of sound therapy are:
  • Balancing both hemispheres of the brain
  • Increases vital energy flow
  • Cleanses negative energy
  • Stress reduction
I'm only mentioning a few benefits, but along with these few are the additional benefits of better sleep, relaxation, better digestion, lower blood pressure and all of the things that come with stress reduction.

Lately, we've been experimenting with our own stress by hanging a tiny chime in the kitchen. When something stressful happens and one of us is uptight, we hit the little bell with the intention of changing the vibe. It works!
