Achieve Vibrational Alignment
Sounds can be soothing and relaxing, cleansing and releasing, or regenerative. Humming is soothing and relaxing. Moans and groans are cleansing and releasing. Regenerative sounds vary. They are low and full-bodied when they are about sexual matter or survival. They are in the mid range when they are for self worth and love. When they are high and ethereal they open us up to spirituality.
Using sounds to release emotions can be scary for some people. The not-so-uncommon concern is that released emotions may encourage one to become violent or crazy. Have no fear. You will not become ill, mentally or physically, by expressing your emotions. Suppressing your feelings is another matter. It is good to get your feelings out in the open. If you are self-conscious about making sounds, then start by humming quietly, growing into more forceful sounds as you see that nothing bad happens. Give yourself permission to lose some control, as much as you are comfortable releasing at any moment. In time, you will be able to use your voice to rejoice. You will feel better.
We will be using the voice to produce a vibrational alignment. When I encourage you to go to a natural being when doing most of the activities, you may want to use this time to make personal adjustments.
You may remember our previous description of chakras. As a reminder, they are invisible vortexes of spinning energy that act as transformers of energy as it moves from body, to mind, to emotions, and to Spirit. Basically, chakras allow your biography to affect your biology. They are like an extension of the mind in that they are non-physical and give direction to the body and self.
Vibrational alignment is the use of vibrational tools such as sound and color to produce health and perfection. Through the use of their innate being, natural beings, from flowers to crystals, “share their energetic resonance with us, and by being in their presence, we remember our own perfection” (Gardner-Gordon, 1993, p. 118). Gardner and Gordon’s eloquent and vital point is illustrated in the following activity.
