Each of us has a base sound signature even if it isn’t audible when you’re sitting across from someone.
On a subconscious level we say things like – I like his vibe! You get it - without hearing it as loudly as you would hear a song.
Sounds we hear affect our brain, psychological, emotional, and spiritual states. Having to listen to a jackhammer will do a number on your nerves.
Listening to water gently trickle down the stream is soothing. Water is an excellent transmission vehicle for sound. Whale songs travel long distances to other pods.
Have you ever heard the saying that we are made of up to 70% water? Water is the major component of most of our body parts. Although we appear ‘solid’, sound actually travels through us.
On a physical level, sound can gently massage our organs, joints and muscles. When quartz crystals singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, Tibetan and Nepalese prayer bowls are played, this warm and organic sound flows through the body.
Listening to these instruments is sometimes referred to as a “sound bath” or internal massage.
