The Therapeutic Effects of Sound Healing
Sound Healing Therapy is used in many forms — voice, chimes, harps, wind harps, drums, gongs, tuning forks, quartz crystal bowls, and nature sounds such as running water and the power of the ocean. All these sounds have great vibratory effect on our cellular and neurological systems via our chakras, emotions and endorphins. Just as standing behind a gong that is being played resonates throughout the entire body, so listening to a wind harp can take over the entire mind. The symphonies of Hayden and Mozart have helped and cured people who suffer with tinnitus or ringing of the ears. Listening to Mozart helps reduce stress and clear the mind. It has been said that it aids in developing the mind.
Masuru Emoto of Japan demonstrated that water molecules are actually affected by sound and our intention — our thoughts and feelings, the energy behind the sounds we create.
Emoto found that clean water looks like a snowflake—very geometric. Polluted water looks like mud. After a priest has chanted over this polluted water, it is photographed again; this time, the water looks like a snowflake.
