Transitions: sound healing & creative thought
Already happily semi-retired, I found myself quite bereft to be honest. In the midst of Covid abroad, unusually separated from my family – my daughter and grandson – having been used to five or six ‘get-togethers’ a year, either abroad in Portugal or in the UK, for close to 12 years. A family kept close-knit and getting the best of both worlds, abroad and in the UK.
Covid brought a total upheaval. Change of lifestyle, country and work trajectory: or rather a totally different way of life and plan. As it did for many, of course.
And I did it – though completely unconsciously. Wabi-sabi rather than mindfulness, as in the ‘imperfection‘ side of my life. But it went well: almost an out-of-body experience. I may even do it again.
I talked for six minutes on ‘Sound Healing with Tuning Forks and Tibetan Singing Bowels’ and the science behind it. If you’re interested you can listen to all six Random Dialogues – or move straight through to mine, fifth in the line-up.
Also, five years ago, after 20 years of practice, I made a YouTube video – Quality, Balance, Freedom. It shows me using sound healing and tuning forks, and gives my explanation of this inspirational healing tool.
It’s a very underrated practice. And yet the heartbeat, in our mother’s womb, that rhythm and frequency, is what we are all searching for: in all the wrong places, truth be known. We all crave that warm embrace of loving emotion that we experience when we feel happy. That same primordial sound found in deep meditation.
So taking a new perspective or trajectory can often bring a new source of inspiration. And learning. To be embraced as a way to keep moving forward when the river of life takes a turn.
Where there is a will etc. Always say: I can, I will!
