For several years, people have been asking me to create a CD that featured only my toning with the Tibetan Singing Bowls. Despite feeling impelled to create such a piece, it has taken me until now to do so.
When I went into the studio, it was my intention to set aside my ego and allow myself and my beloved companions, the Tibetan Singing Bowls, to be the vehicle for sounds that would touch the heart and soul of all who heard it. After you experience this CD, feel free to share your experience with me. I would love to receive it!
I received the following comment from John N. from Madison WI. I was deeply touched by it and, in gratitude, would like to share it.
“I am listening to your song "See Me" as I write this to you, tears running down my cheeks, listening to it over and over again. I can feel the pain in your pure and amazingly beautiful voice. You have an incredibly pure and magnificent voice. The imagery is also amazing, but it is your voice that transmits the vibrant strength of your spirit. I just can listen and listen to this and feel the healing taking place for young women who suffer from an unaccepting father. You have an amazing gift and you have to share this with all those millions who need this healing prayer to mend their hearts. You are here to serve all of us who need this gentle, humble, loving message of love. I am a father, and although I hope that I accepted and continue to accept my daughter as she is, if I had not, this message would melt my hard heart to mend not only this relationship but all my relationships. Be fearless, you have too much to give to hide it. Besides, you have the next chapter to sing for us."
What is Vibrational Energy Medicine?
You are probably familiar with the term body/mind/spirit. This refers to the dynamic energy systems that define humans. When these systems get too far out of balance, the result is dis-ease. This dis-ease can manifest physically, mentally, or spiritually.
“When we are in a state of health, we’re like an extraordinary orchestra that’s playing a wonderful symphony of the self. But what happens if the second violin player loses her sheet music? She begins to play out of tune, and pretty soon the entire string section sounds bad. Pretty soon, in fact, the entire orchestra is off. This is a metaphor for disease.”
Jonathan Goldman, Director of The Sound Healers Association
Vibrational Sound Healing Therapy is becoming internationally accepted as an effective therapeutic method for treating stress-related conditions, managing pain, and gaining relief from the side effects of chemotherapy. Science can now measure these healing effects of sound and confirm their value.
Our normal brain wave patterns when we’re awake are called Beta waves, which oscillate the fastest of the 4 brain waves. Delta is the slowest and occurs during deep sleep with Theta and Alpha being the next two states of consciousness.
Many adults in Western society jump from Delta waves to Beta waves in the morning - sometimes with the help of a jolt of caffeine! Consequently, the failure to utilize the Theta and Alpha levels of consciousness can make you less productive and steer you toward anxiety and stress-related diseases.
The Benefits of Achieving Alpha & Theta Brain Wave Frequencies
The Alpha state is a relaxed state of consciousness essential to stress reduction and high levels of creativity. The production of Alpha waves leads to:
strengthening the immune system
increased peak performance
expansion of awareness through deeper meditative states
Theta waves are often considered the gateway to the Universal Mind. Theta is a dreamlike state just before the sound sleep of the Delta waves. Being able to produce Theta waves:
allows you to enter the deepest stages of meditations
grants you access to answers meant solely for you
enables the reprogramming of your subconscious mind which is essential in healing.
How Does Sound Impact Your Ability to Reach These States of Consciousness?
Well-being is all about alignment of energies. Healing sound modalities help achieve the balancing of your physical, emotional, and spiritual energies. When the healing sounds are brought into your presence, the brain wave frequencies within you will begin to resonate with those of the healing sounds, such as those from Tibetan Singing Bowls. Alpha and Theta states are brought into your experience, and thus begins the aligning of your energies.
“If we accept that sound is vibration, and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears, but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor
The Tibetan Singing Bowls play a major role in Patricia Caldwell’s healing sound therapy along with her voice. She has recently expanded her efforts in sound healing to working with cancer patients, responding to the research by bio-energeticist Fabien Maman and Mitchell L. Gaynor, M.D., Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at Strang-Cornell Cancer Prevention Center.
As a believer in integrating health services, Patricia also includes Bio-Magnetic Touch, a simple, hands-on healing technique, visualizations, and inner journey work if you desire.
