Benefits of a Sound Journey


What is a sound journey?

A sound journey, also known as a sound bath or sound healing session, is an immersive experience where participants are enveloped in sound waves produced by various instruments, such as singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and tuning forks.

Sound “Bath” Journeys are transformative experiences that resonate deeply across every facet of our being. Within us, intricate networks of energy centers and meridians shape our physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

When we immerse ourselves in the healing vibrations of sound, we can release blocked energy, liberate old cellular memories from trauma held within our cells, negative emotions, and other blockages causing mental, emotional, or physical dis-ease.

These gentle yet powerful sounds sweep through us, clearing away stagnation and welcoming in revitalizing energies. In this harmonious space, stress melts away, and a profound sense of balance emerges, nurturing our body’s natural capacity for both mental clarity and physical rejuvenation.

Sound Journeys thus become a sanctuary for holistic healing, where the symphony of sound guides us towards wholeness, vitality, and inner peace.

What are the benefits of Sound Journeying?

Sound “Bath” Journeys offer numerous benefits across mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of well-being. Here are some of the key benefits that has been documented through research, as well as reported by our YOUniversity guests:

Mental Benefits:

Sound can assist in relieving stress and tension. It also helps to quieten repetitive thought patterns from a busy mind & relaxes one into a meditative state where deep inner silence & stillness is experienced.

Sound helps to move and release emotions which are stored in the body. Through this process old patterns and behaviors which are no longer serving one’s highest good are released. The release of these emotions allows for a greater flow of energy throughout the body by clearing energy blockages.

Overall, sound healing can be a powerful tool for achieving holistic health and well-being by harmonizing the body’s energy and promoting a state of balance and harmony.

How does Sound Journeying work?

Participants typically lie down or sit comfortably while the practitioner plays the instruments, guiding them through a meditative and therapeutic journey of sound.

Our bodies are also made up of approximately 80% water, so our bodies are excellent conductors of sound.

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” -Albert Einstein

Sound vibrations and specific frequencies will be combined with guided meditation and intention setting. It is through the simple utilization of attention and intention that the energetics within us can transform.

The science confirms the benefit of the combination of intentional sound and guided imagery practices as ultimately beneficial to the process of healing emotional and physical health and well-being. It is widely recognized as a valuable and effective complement to conventional medical care.

Sound amplifies our true inner nature. When we focus on the positive states inherently within, the sound assists in realizing and sustaining this positive state within us! Sometimes that inner state become muddied or blocked so we were unable to see or access it. And so we work with clearing and balancing  the entire pathway from ground to sky, from root to crown, from foot to head, and beyond!

My instruments include the Premium Heaven and Earth 9 Bowl Frosted Crystal Bowl Chakra Set with 432 Hz tuning. In addition to 7 bowls for each of the 7 chakras, this set includes the low F for the Earth Star which is located below the Root Chakra (my favorite!!!) and the high C for the Soul Star which is located above the Crown Chakra.  I also have a gorgeous set of Himalayan brass bowls. These crystal and brass bowls are powerful and you will experience the strong vibrations they send out. a beautiful and powerful gong, Koshi chimes, an ocean drum, a water fountain, and more, to accentuate the sound experience.

The instruments in a sound journey facilitate shifts in our brainwave state through “entrainment”.

“Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur). This same concept is utilized in meditation by regulating the breath, but with sound it’s the frequency that is the agent which influences the shift.” [*Nate Martinez]
