One of the most important aspects I’ve learned in sound healing (and life!) is the value of silence…. When was the last time you sat in silence? I mean real silence- the full on, cut the mental chatter, out of this world, silence? When have you last taken the time to hear the space between the notes, or taken the time to sit in silence in your own heart? There is so much to learn when you take the journey into your own soul and just to allow yourself to be. Sit in the center of your heart and allow the sounds of your inner world to become prominent.
An interesting paradox- to learn about silence in working with sound- but think about it for a moment…technically speaking, there is no true silence- but the absence of noise. When you can actually rise above the noise of every day life, and calm the torrent of thoughts, there is another layer of sound to behold! The leaves rustle in a gentle breeze, the birds sing when we stop to listen, the crickets at night, all create a symphony that we can tune into when we are mindful. Take a beautiful and peaceful break from the hecticness of life. Sit in silence and connect with the depths of your soul.
One of the easiest ways to calm the mind and settle into the essence of one’s own being is to focus on the breath, and bring your awareness of a feeling state. In other words, open your heart to gratitude. Feel the feelings of being really grateful for something in your life. Connect with the expansiveness of energy that comes with that feeling- and continue to breathe it in. Getting into a feeling state is the quickest way to stay connected in the heart.
The birds, the trees, the earth are whispering to you in song, a gentle song – sent to awaken your heart and to uplift your soul. Heed the gentle song and you will be in the flow of divine grace! Abandon the clutter in your mind and make way for the state of grace.
This month we are grateful and are able to share the joys and heartbreak with those close to us. We are able to share the bonds of friends and family as we connect to our inner core as well as the things that lift us to the higher realms. Feel yourself flowing on the breeze of the wind as you sail toward freedom! Feel this freedom as it calls to your very soul and let go of all the things that hold you back! When you are in alignment with your life as it is in this moment- suddenly, it feels like a breath of fresh air flows into your world. Allow sweetness and grace to enter your life and bask in the purity of that energy…Connect with silence- and stay pure of heart and lovingly grateful for all that you have and all that you are.
In loving gratitude,

A recent talk at a local library-(see picture) led me to a fascinating discovery:
Humans are an interesting bunch.
Most of us spend many hours, many days and many years in thinking mode.
We think of what has happened to us, or what will happen.
The human brain ruminates, plots, plans, worries, and dreams up many “what if” scenarios.
Wouldn’t you like to get to a point where you are running the show of what your brain thinks about?
What if you were able to take a big step back from the mind chatter and to sort out what is important and what is distraction? How would you feel about being able to make decisions from a clear and calm center?
