Sound is a universal language. It’s true, we understand sound and integrate it because everything around is vibrating matter.
In our article, “Sound Healing for a High Vibe Life,” Molly Pizzo discussed why sound healing is such a profound practice, she touched on how cultures spanning the test of time have worked with this, as well as her own personal experience with sound healing.
I am obsessed with sound baths, sound healing services, and the alchemization that happens when I bring sound healing into a practice or offering of mine, but it doesn’t stop there. Sound healing is accessible to all of us, at every moment.
Let’s talk about bringing sound healing home and working with it in our personal spaces.
As so many of us have learned in the past year, being able to adapt our practice from services we receive and events we attend to being the healers, leaders, and gurus of our own experience is an important part of our inner work.
So today, I want to talk all about how we can bring sound healing into our personal practice, in ways that are easy & accessible, and how you can heal in your own home.
There are so many ways to bring sound healing into your at-home space, let’s cover a few important aspects & then talk about layering them together for added oomph:
Binaural beats // Hertz Frequencies
Recording your own meditation/affirmations
Binaural beats / Hertz frequencies
“When you hear two tones, one in each ear, that are slightly different in frequency, your brain processes a beat at the difference of the frequencies. This is called a binaural beat.” – healthline.com
Binaural Beats are a great way to bring in vibrational support for an intended purpose. They are extremely calming, many people report stress relieving, anti-anxiety, and emotional support benefits.
I personally work with them all the time when creating content. I reference the solfeggio scale frequency chart, and select a binaural beat at a specific frequency that supports the work I’m creating.
For reference here are a few specific frequencies and their aligned properties from Gaia:
396 Hz — Releases Fear
417 Hz — Eases and Initiates Change
528 Hz — Healing and DNA Repair
639 Hz — Heals Relationships
741 Hz — Finding Creative Expression and Solutions
852 Hz — Spiritual Homecoming
So for example, if I am writing an article or creating content that focuses on healing relationships, cord-cutting, or welcoming in aligned relationships into my life, I might choose to play an audio track with a 639 HZ. This will align my vibration with my intention amplifying the impact of the work I am creating.
You can find a playlist on Spotify or Youtube that you can play during your personal practice while working. This is a great way to access the benefits of sound healing from home.
I encourage you to do your research and connect with the Hz and frequencies that you feel connected to, be that the ones above or the ones connected to the specific chakras, etc.
I am a big, big, big ole lover of working with music that gets you into a specific vibration. One of my favorite ways to harness this power is to select a manifestation song for a specific manifestation of mine.
One of the areas I’ve found the most success with this practice has been manifesting abundance. I will select a specific manifestation, maybe a certain dollar amount over a specific timeframe, or a certain number of clients, etc. I will work through my manifestation steps and when I feel pretty clear on the essence or vibration of my manifestation I select a song.
My most recent abundance manifestation songs are the following:
7 rings by Ariana Grande, those “I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it” vibes are perfect for calling in the cash money
Money by Leikeli47, this song is absolute fire and I feel abundant AF when I listen to it
Money by Chris-n-Teeb, these gentlemen know how to get my manifestation juices flowing without sacrificing the beats I love
When I’m feeling powerful AF and use that power to manifest with intention
When I’m feeling low vibe to bring my energy up and allow me to manifest
When I’m doing the technical or energetic manifesting work
Layering it over inspired actions that tell the universe I mean business when it comes to my manifestation
Anything and everything else that feels aligned
I love mantra work because it moves sound healing from something outside ourselves to something inside ourselves. Mantras offer us the healing of sound, as we make the sounds with our voices, but they also provide our minds with the space to escape or focus on something.
Often I hear the feedback that mediation is hard or “I can’t do it, because I can’t quiet my mind.”
Doing work with mantras is phenomenal for this exact reason.
When you work with mantras, they allow the mind something to focus on, like looking at a candle as a mediation practice as well.
It also takes it to the next level when you say the mantra out loud. Vibrations from the voice are extremely healing. Just like the vibration of a cat’s purr is healing, or when you speak or sing to your plants helps them grow – speaking sweetly to ourselves, making beautiful noises and vibrations through our throat chakra is widely powerful.
Here are a few of my favorite mantras:
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
This mantra bring peace and unity into your mind, body, and energy
Om Mani Padme Hum
This mantra means the Jewel is in the Louts, and it has changed my life
A personal favorite of mine that I don’t hear many people working with is
Om Shakti Om Shanti
Shakti is the divine feminine, the creation, the feminine force.
Shanti is the peace, the flow, the unity.
For me, I have a deeply personal connection with them both and love working with them together.
When I work with a mantra, I love to bring in my mala beads, saying the mantra one time for each bead, repeating it 107 times. I will frequently work with one mantra for 21 days with my mala. Allow the sound to heal you and integrate the divine wisdom of these mantras.
Recording your own meditation or affirmations
I know some of you might have cringed at this suggestion, thinking… “With my own voice? Yeah not gonna do that…” But I encourage you to consider it.
We just talked about how mantra work takes sound healing from an outside practice to an inside practice. Recording your own meditation or affirmations allows the practice to be both. The sound within us from speaking it becomes the sound around us, and this is a major boost of energy!
When we record ourselves guiding ourselves into a visualization or feeling or vision board type exercise with our intentions, it makes it so real for us. The mind and energy don’t understand the difference between feelings and thoughts and the actual physical thing. So let’s use this sound vibration and powerful visualization practice to bring in that which we desire.
When you set out a goal or get clear on a desire or align with an intentional manifestation, record yourself describing the feelings and sensations of having, being, or doing it.
Then listen to it and feel the feelings. This is a powerful powerful practice.
Layering aspects together!
I am a very intense and vibrant person. I love to go all the way in when I’m developing my practices. I love to layer and amplify and get the absolute most energetic bang for my focus. So I encourage you to try a couple of these and pair them together.
Maybe you put some binaural beats under your own mediation or affirmation recording.
Maybe your mantra audio becomes your manifestation song.
Maybe it’s everything all in one: binaural beat background music, underneath a recording of you doing mantra work into your affirmations, and then a manifestation song at the end. Maybe you blend this with other practices like breathwork, journaling, divination practices, and more.
The healing available to us through sound healing is endless, even at home.
