We have all heard: God said “Let there be Light”, which would leave us to believe that first there was sound and then light. Science proves that sound travels quicker than light.
Our Sacred Text tells of the beginning: ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God’.
In a Hindu text, Upanishads, we are told of how the divine, all-encompassing consciousness first manifested as sound: ‘OM’, the vibration of the Supreme.
Through Einstein, we have also come to the common consensus that Everything is Energy – including you and me.
Sound Therapy has become more popular recently, as well as other Energy Modalities. We had an epiphany ladies and gentlemen! Right?! Going to the doctor for check ups doesn't take care of your day to day wellness. We have been referring to this as Self-Care. Hashtag. ;-)
Healing with Sound and the use of energy modalities is nothing new.
The Aboriginal people in Australia, some feel, are the first known culture to heal with sound, dating back over 40,000 years. However, the oldest records of Aborigines playing the didgeridoo date back 2000 years in the form of old Northern Territory cave and rock paintings. While they had a few instruments at hand, the main instrument used was the 'yidaki', commonly known as the digereedoo. The Aborigines healed broken bones, muscle tears and illnesses of every kind using their enigmatic musical instrument. Interestingly, the sounds emitted by the yidaki are in alignment with modern sound healing technology.
