This music heals people because music is vibration, and the proper vibration heals - Wynton Marsalis

This note confirms the completion of the group distance-reiki treatment this morning.
In what seemed to be a continuation of last week, I felt the power of sound and vibration to reorganize and move energy within our bodies.
Although the feeling was strongest at my Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras, it felt less significant to focus on where I felt the vibrations than it did to focus on how healing vibrations can be. It felt like my body was being detoxified.
I will admit that I do not know much about sound therapy, binaural beats, or any myriad of sound-based healing modalities, but it felt quite simple. Drums, singing bowls, sustained vibrations used with intention during periods of stillness can be profoundly healing.
This week, I invite you to find moments, 5 minutes, 20 minutes, however long you can spare for yourself. If you have a drum or a singing bowl, use that; if not, there is no shortage of recordings you can use available on YouTube, Apple Music, Spotify and elsewhere.
Be sure to take time to focus on each chakra, beginning with your Crown, one chakra at a time until you reach your root, and if you have time, all the way back up again. At each chakra, draw your breath in and out of the chakra and observe what comes up. Working body scans into your daily routine can be a useful way to stay tuned in to your overall health and to release any repressed feelings collected during the day.
