SOUND BATH MEDITATION
Trying to meditate, destress, and turn your thoughts off at the end of a crazy week? Harder than you thought? I feel that... been there. Meditation used to be challenging for me – how does one simply turn down their thoughts and be one with their intentions? It wasn’t until I stumbled upon my first sound bath that everything changed. Feeling the sounds and vibrations flow through me, I had never felt so at peace, so at ease. All the stress in my body melted away. I was finally able to relax, channel my thoughts, and focus on the now.
But like honestly… what is a Sound Bath? I often find it hard to really describe the essence of a sound bath to someone who’s never been to one before, as it can truly be a unique experience for everyone. All you have to do is show up with the intension to relax, get super cozy either laying down or in a seated position, and prepare yourself for a beautiful guided meditation led by crystal singing bowls (amongst other instruments). The vibrations, sounds, and energy that fill the room are something you just have to experience for yourself to fully understand how magical yet therapeutic sound therapy can be. Having said that, let me to offer some more insight:
Everything on this earth has a vibrational frequency, including our bodies. And every part of our bodies resonates in a certain way. We always want to be at our “Highest Vibration,” however, sometimes certain parts of our body can become unbalanced or blocked, which can result in anxiety, stress, and even illness. It is my job as a sound practitioner to set positive intentions based on your needs and allow the crystal bowls to sing those powerful, healing vibrations of theirs. These intentional sound waves will flow through you, resonating with your different Chakras, and allow the body to harmonize and balance itself back to a healthy state of vibration.
While this form of sound therapy is meant to relax and destress, possibly even taking you into a sleep-like state, the way the vibrations harmonize within your body, it can also be a very energizing and empowering sensation – so be open to all emotions you might feel, as this is your body’s way of telling you what it needs. Hold the space for what you need, and let go of the rest.
During this Crystal-Infused Sound Bath, not only will you benefit from the healing properties of the sounds and vibrations, but also from the crystals and essential oils thoughtfully selected for each meditation. Rachael, founder of Wild Alabaster, curates the most perfect collections of crystals into her shop each month, and we will use these crystals in partnership with sound to bring you a beautiful and unique Sound Bath experience.
So please join me as we deepen your meditation, relaxation, and overall well-being through this full mind, body, and soul experience. And feel free to stay after for some of our Wild Alabaster tea and good vibes!
**I always suggest wearing something comfortable. We have blankets and pillows, but feel free to bring anything else you might want to get cozy (i.e. your own blankets/pillows, yoga mat, eye covering, etc.).
