Sound and the Chakras

The ability of sound to influence and affect us, particularly, our chakras, has been of great  significance to me ever since I began researching this area, way back in the 1980’s. There are many different methods of sounding our chakras—different tones, scales, assorted sounds and mantras, as well as many other variations that can be successfully utilized by individuals depending on what particularly resonates with them.  One way in understanding the effects of sound upon our chakras, and I feel this is of great interest and importance, is for others to share their own personal experiences.

Very recently I created a special brand new recording called the 7 MINUTE CHAKRA TUNE UP that is now available as a FREE DOWNLOAD at www.healingsounds.com. If you would like a copy of this recording, please download it here.

The intention behind the 7 MINUTE CHAKRA TUNE UP is to offer listeners a direct, firsthand experience of the ability of sound to create powerful energetic balancing, shifts and changes. And while listening alone can be very beneficial, I also encourage people to take the next step and become more actively engaged by sounding along with the recording. This type of practice is often referred to as “vocal toning”, or, more specifically in this case—“chakra toning”. Introductory instructions are included with the download, but for those of you who would like more in depth information about “chakra toning’, please click here to read the article “Sound and the Chakras”.

For some, this information may be an introduction to the practice. Others of you may have been doing it for years following the information and teachings from sources such as found in my books, including HEALING SOUNDS, as well as the “Vocal Toning The Chakras instructional CD set, and the Chakra Chants I & II CD’s.

Thus, in this blog thread we invite you to share your experiences with both the7 MINUTE CHAKRA TUNE UP and “chakra toning” in general, whether you are a complete beginner or a long time practitioner. And please note that one of the great truths in the realm of Sound Healing is that “We are all unique vibratory beings”!

Any and all individual experiences are valid, and should not be compared or judged against another’s.  Part of the adventure of vocal toning work is to explore and discover your own unique resonances and vibrations using models such as the 7 MINUTE CHAKRA TUNE UP as a starting point.

We invite you to share your discoveries and insights!

Harmonically Yours,

Jonathan Goldman

    Dear Readers of the “Healing Sounds Blog”,

    I’d like to share my personal experience with the use of self-created sounds, that has been inspired by Jonathan Goldman’s “7 Minute Chakra Tune Up”.

    After downloading the above mentioned track I did not work with it until a week later. Firstly, I read the information Jonathan had written for the use of the “Tune Up”. As I wanted to be sure of the pronunciation of the “vowel sounds”, I found a video on youtube “The 7 Vowel Sounds” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKDXFxUfyNw&feature=related, where Jonathan clearly demonstrates it.
    And so I played the track on repeat and chanted along with it. The effect was so powerful, the state of my whole energy transformed to a very balanced, deeply peaceful, content, and that night I slept so well as I had not for very very long time.

    In the next days I was experimenting playing the Chakra Chants, Chakra Chants 2 and Tantra of Sound Harmonizer, chanting along with it, or just chanting on my own without any background music. It’s been a highly transformative experience and I am truly grateful for it.

    I wish that all human beings would become happier, more balanced, loving, peaceful, wiser by creating the “good” and “healing” vibrations by sounding them out. Saying that I recommend everybody to train “full breath”, which is very beneficial just on its own, and I guess even more beneficial while chanting.

    Love, Peace and Respect
    Martin
