Therapeutic sounds can elevate individual energies
Therapeutic drumming, sound therapy and meditation are moving toward being creative and holistic approach to challenging thoughts, feelings and beliefs. More professionals who work in the field of mental health are turning to drumming, sound therapy and meditation as a therapeutic tool to develop emotional intelligence and increase positive mindset.
As more and more people from all walks of life such as counselors, therapists, social workers, change management leaders, community leaders become certified drum circle facilitators the more research and insights we have in growing evidence as music for managing emotions, mood, and exploring self-beliefs.
As you can imagine emotional pain comes from our past experiences. Past memories can trigger anxiety, stress, leading to the feelings of helplessness and loneliness. For some people talking about these past experiences can be a trigger, so this is where music and experienced or trained facilitator, counselor or sound practitioner can be of benefit.
In this post I’m speaking from my heart (as I do always on my blog) and my own experience as a life student. Really, that’s the only place I can speak from – my own experience. Life’s a journey, right?
Sacred sounds for a balance mind, body and spirit
We all have our own unique energy system. The more we are exposed to beneficial sounds the greater and more permanent effect they have upon our own individual energies.
From my own experience as a professional group facilitator and sound practitioner training and teaching individuals, drumming groups with people of all ages and abilities, one-on-one sound healing clients and my personal development, learning from amazing teachers and personal challenges. With my clients I see the benefits by having music, sound and meditation as a therapeutic tool to help develop positive changes in their life and the huge possibility healing the past.
As I begin my journey into my 50s I wonder… is life’s journey seeking to be the best version of oneself? Remembering who we are and letting go of others’ expectations? Is part of life about healing those past hurts?
I am proof in the pudding (as they say) that music, sound therapy and drumming is a way to more loving relationship with oneself and others. No longer do I see drumming as just for musicians, or performance, technique, speed and music reading, but more as a wellness tool for everyone. Drum circle are a great example of increasing social connection, sound healing and meditation a creative tool for self-discovery and transformation. To go beyond our limiting beliefs.
