Last year when I chose to take myself off of antidepressants after using them for almost 30 years, my brain went through an adjustment process that included severe ringing in my ears.
At first I thought it was madness. I resisted. I was in fear thinking I had damaged my brain and no one could help me. My doctor wanted me to consider taking an anti anxiety medication and I refused to get back on any medications.
I had to find a way to make peace with this non stop ringing. After a few months of non stop ringing my husband thought it would be helpful to get into the woods away from all the noise of our community. We ventured to Big Basin and walked deep into the forest where I sat and cried. I cried from exhaustion.
After this release I decided to make friends with what was diagnosed as tinnitus. On our way home we stopped in my favorite metaphysical boutique OM Gallery in Santa Cruz and I made a beeline to the singing bowls. I sat down and began playing each bowl trying to match the frequency I heard in my brain.
After an hour of playing the bowls I found a bowl that matched the tone in my ears. My husband delighted with my response bought it for me as a symbol of my acceptance of this unexplainable occurrence that I had to come to terms with.
I began playing this bowl when I felt the ringing in my ears became overwhelming.
I woke from dreams of me playing in chambers for leaders and those in power. I vividly recall being asked to soothe the tormented spirits of the community.
Daily I would play for myself and my tinnitus decreased the more I played. I began to see the shape of each frequency as I went deeper and bought more bowls.
As each bowl arrived. I went deeper into my studies and found even more evidence of the actual benefit on humanity and made a commitment to play everyday in my garden for my community.
This past month, daily I hear trees being cut down. I see entire communities homeless and I see land being grabbed up. We evaluate every year if we are going to stay here or move on. For now we are here and I am committed to bring these frequencies into the ethers as I observe these drastic changes.
I use my bowls with clients for private sessions as well as other sound healing techniques. This video is just a quick share about my passion for sound healing.
My husband and I attended a sound immersion in Woodside a few months ago and not only were we immersed in healing frequencies, I received heavy downloads each time I attended. Like a Disney movie my brain showed me all the shapes of each sound and how it penetrates our bones and the water in our body, ringing our soul bell :) No longer am I afraid of the ringing in my ears , I know I am hearing frequencies.
I developed a hunger for this daily. This is healing.
This is medicine and it available for us all !
