What Is Sound Healing?
Sound healing is the use of any sound, including voice, instrument or nature, which is produced or directed with the intention of healing. Healing vibrations are created when one connects or grounds to the earth, listens deeply, and develops presence and technique to bring the sound and music through one's being. Healing sound is an external expression of vibratory essence flowing from all realms.
Sound is vibration and vibration is the essence of the universe. Sound is a medium for encoding and transmitting information. "If you wish to understand the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." (Nikola Tesla) You could call vibration Vitamin V! Sound is considered a prime organizing force of all matter. Healing sound can have the effect of organizing your being, your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Dr. Emoto did studies on water crystal patterns exposed to various sounds. Heavy metal music caused disorganization of the water structure, while classical music or beautiful love songs caused beautiful, coherent organized crystals.
All indigenous cultures include(d) sound in their ceremonies. Creating sound is among the most ancient of human traits. Pythagoras said "the highest goal of music is to connect one's soul to their Divine Nature." Healing sound expands the human biofield and brings deep relaxation and connection with one's spirit and soul.
Sound heals through sympathetic resonance. Resonance is the vibratory rate of an object. When a crystal bowl is chiming, it creates a beautiful vibration that resonates with the human being and tunes that being to a higher vibratory rate. Each cell, organ, system, chakra, has its optimum, healthy frequency or rate of vibration. Illness occurs when some part is not vibrating harmoniously with itself or other parts.

In a sound healing session, the sound creates SPACE to heal. Difficult, traumatic moments are compressive events, resulting in constriction and guarding. Healing vibration shifts compressed energy, and opens the SPACE between atoms. This can restore a beautifully orchestrated rhythm in your body and biofield.
SOUND DOULA: Kathleen has assisted in many births as a midwife, and now assists in creating a beautiful, spirit filled passage as a sound doula in both the transition of the soul's entrance into and out of earth life. Sound is a gift of the Universe which becomes a BRIDGE to assist the flow of spirit and consciousness between heaven and earth. Sound healing is ideal for blessing transitions between heaven and earth, experiencing the beauty and humanity of birth and death (although there is no true death!).
If you would like to learn more about sound healing, Kathleen teaches a workshop on Healing Yourself with Sound Medicine. She also offers private and group sound healing sessions and sound baths.

Welcome to the sound of "LOVE Between Heaven & Earth". This has been a journey of stretching much deeper into my intuition and into the generous love of Mother Earth and the Divine. As I played with sound, (which I encourage you to do), I found my connection with my soul, and All That Is, manifesting and expanding into amazing vibration. I learned sound is the foundation of music. Music has been a hobby all my life, but sound demanded to become my partner, demanded I allow it to permeate my whole being and embrace it fully. Sound taught me Divine vibration is at the essence of the universe, and each one of us.
May you find soothing, comforting, well-being and connection through the sound of the crystal bowls and voice within. This sound continues to take me to the realms of magical multi-dimensions, where dreams are born and love is rekindled, on earth and beyond the veil. May you enjoy the crystalline vibrations and their purifying effects on your body, mind and soul. May you feel the connection of Divine love, the love you are, and love for the human experience, in all its duality, in the embodied ebb and flow of the loving SOUND.
