Sound Healing

 




Jason and I learned about Sound Healing last week, including playing with Tibetan Singing Bowls, tuning forks and a digital tamboroa. They are seven tones of bowls made from seven different metals which are toned to the seven body chakras. You can put the bowls directly on the body and make them "sing" and it feels incredible. You can also use tuning forks to create an "electric" feel in the ankle by holding a fork to both sides of the ankle at the bony prominences. The digital tambura sets a tonal wave and allows you to tone your body or chakras to help open energy fields and release stagnant energies. It was very cool and I can't wait to learn more about all of it and to integrate it into my daily practice.

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind

I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me



"I Don't Want To Be" by Gavin DeGraw

I don't need to be anything other
Than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other
Than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other
Than the birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned!

Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain
The crust of creation
My whole situation-made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody

I don't want to be

In Your Eyes

To Jason, thanks for putting up with me. I love you. You make me complete.



I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes

"In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel



love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes

Don't be afraid - You're only dreaming...

Antoher great song off the album Keep It Hid by Dan Auerbach.

It's a nice little lullaby for those of us with the restless sleep and crazy dreams.

When the night comes
And you lay by the one you love
The one who knows you and the things you do
When the night comes

Don't be afraid
You're only dreaming...

"When the Night Comes" by Dan Auerbach



When the night comes
And you lay your weary head to rest
No more trials, no more tests
When the night comes

When the night comes
You don't have to be afraid
Of any choice you made
When the night comes

Don't be afraid
You're only dreaming...

When the night comes
The headlines read
Whatever's in your dreams
When the night comes

When the night comes
And you lay by the one you love
The one who knows you and the things you do
When the night comes

Don't be afraid
You're only dreaming...

When the night comes...
