How to listen to a sound healing so you can get maximum healing, activation, and illumination


Although most music is healing, a sound healing is an entirely different genre of music.

Sound healing is medicine. An activation. A transmission.

It moves energy through your body and energy field. It connects you with your soul / Higher Self. It makes it easier for you to plug in to Universal Energy / God / the Divine. It forges a link between you and Healing Beings who work on you through the music.

Sure, you can listen to a sound healing in the background while you work or relax, and it’ll work okay.

But to really receive it’s deep healing magic, your intentional engagement is essential.

Three Ways To Prepare

1. Set your intention

Set your intention for what you want from a sound healing. Your intention focuses and channels the sound to where you want it to go. Your intention also determines the healing’s outcome and effect.

2. Be receptive and open

Allow yourself to receive. Open your body. Let the music enter your cells.

The more receptive and open you are, the more you will receive.

Let go of your mind, its assumptions, preconceptions, judgments, and blah-blah. In fact, send your mind on a spa break.

Healing happens despite and beyond your mind, not through or because of it.

3. Trust. Believe. Have faith in what you don’t know and can’t quite see.

Mystery, magic, and miracles exist. Your right brain and Soul can access universes beyond your conscious mind.

You create your reality according to what you believe. And what you believe, you allow to become real. What you don’t believe, won’t manifest or be realized.

The amazing thing about healing (and sound healing) is that you don’t need to know. Your body responds. Your heart and soul guide. Your Inner Healer — not your mind — knows what to do and where to direct sounds.

So, open to the mystery. Take a leap of faith. Listen for murmurings and intuitions that are the breadcrumbs to More.

Open to the More that is You.


So what’s the best way to listen?

  1. Write, draw, or  hold in your awareness your intentions, dreams, and desires.
  2. Decide to gift yourself time and this sound healing to support what you want to create in yourself and your life.
  3. Find the best space available to you now. Will you listen to it in front of your laptop, on a comfy chair, lying down on a couch or on the ground? Lying down is better than sitting because it gets you out of your mind easier and you receive better. If you can do this outside in nature, that’s best because then you’re lying in Mother Earth’s energy. Make yourself comfortable with cushions and a throw.
  4. Close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Bring your intentions into your awareness.
  5. Start playing the sound healing ideally on a really good speaker or headphone.
  6. Bring your attention to your body, to a specific chakra, if you know which one.
  7. Receive. Open your body. Let go of your mind as much as you can. Let go of everything, including your intentions. Allow the music to work in you. Surrender to the music as much as you can. Let yourself go wherever the sounds take you.
  8. After it ends, take some time to fully absorb and resonate with the sounds.
  9. After it is complete, if you feel like it, write, draw, or move to your experience to integrate it.

10. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Most healings take time. Repetition.

If you’re drawn to a particular sound healing or want to work on a particular issue, listen to the healing multiple times. Put one on replay for a sitting, or play it over days and weeks.

How else do you use and integrate sound healings? I’d love to hear.



A Gifted Sound Healing For Creativity

A Gifted Sound Healing For Creativity


Happy Equinox Day!

We in the Bay Area couldn’t be any luckier. It’s Springtime! We’ve had spells of long-awaited delicious rain. Our trees and plants are alive, wet, and dripping. The Earth is moist and happy. Grasses swish soft and fragrant. Flowers blooming everywhere. The air is sweet, and the locals happy.

And you? What are you creating in this powerful time?

Astrologically, you have the eclipse and equinox to boost your creativity to new levels. Maybe ideas are streaming into you and projects pouring out of you. Or perhaps you’re in the fertile void, gestating, nurturing a pregnancy or new project.

With the energies of the spring eclipse and equinox you might well feel like you’re stepping out of your tried and true comfort zone and patterns. Experimenting. Tinkering.

You might also feel like you’re being cracked open so a whole new you can emerge. Like you’re being re-created.

Whether you’re creating or re-creating yourself, this month’s sound healing is a spoonful of healing and light for you and your creativity.


How this sound healing helps your creativity

Influenced by Raga Gurjari Todi, this sound healing:

  •  Activates and energizes your second chakra and creativity
  • Opens you to inspiration
  • Heals, supports, and cools the liver (seat of attention) and adrenals
  • Helps you concentrate and focus
  • Draws deep from that Muse, the fertile unknown

About the raga

Raga Gurjari Todi is a raga for the left meridian of the second chakra that’s played the first quarter of the day. It moves and circulates your kundalini ( life force) through this chakra so it spins and balances optimally. It activates the Fire element. It heals and restores your liver, kidney, spleen, pancreas and uterus.

“A Southern girl, dusky, with splendid hair, Gurjari sits smiling upon a bed made from the tenderest sandal trees of the Malay mountain. Knowing all the secrets of music, she plays, cheek leaning upon the lute.” 

— Sangita darpana

ca. 1735, Rajasthan

 For myself, I’m feeling very creative and working on a couple of projects. I’m the kind of person who has several ideas streaming through so always have to ask new inspirations to wait their turn. I do wish I were a many-armed goddess. And the big energies are helping me move forward quicker as I shed limitations, question and let go of worn out beliefs, and open to new possibilities.

Enjoy, and Happy Creating,
