Sound has always been considered a direct link between humanity and the Divine. Every ancient culture has used sound in ceremonies of healing or celebration of spirit. Evidence of sound healing in early cultures is found in writings, drawings, sculpture and other architectural remnants and artifacts of the pasts of the Ancient Greeks, Chinese, East Indians, Tibetans, Egyptians, American Indians, Mayans, Aztecs, Polynesians and Aborigines to name a few. Music and sound as an art form was well developed by the Egyptians, Hindus, Chinese and the Japanese in their ancient cultures. In fact it has been discovered that by the time the Ancient Egyptians built the pyramids, it had organized choruses with as many as 12,000 voices and orchestras of 600 pieces. From the early greeks come some of the earliest scientific observations on sound and its true nature and effects. Sound and music was an intricate part of life and culture - it was impossible to separate it from scholarly subjects. All art, including music was an essential part of life and business, there was no separation of art from the sciences, from medicine. Medicine was considered an art. The belief of the Ancient Greeks was that Orpheus (the poet, musician, theologian and interpreter of the Gods) was the son of the Greek God Apollo who was not just the God of the Sun, put the God of music and Healing. Today most people are either unaware or simply ignore the significance and preponderance of sound within their lives. However this knowledge is important now more than ever as we become more and more a technological society in which we are constantly bombarded by extraneous sound and vibrations that affect our resonance without our even hearing the sound. In the Sound for Self Healing classes, the goal is to learn how to direct sound so that you can reharmonize your full body system and create states of health and wholeness which reverse and neutralize the disharmony and disease in the body.
The Three Treasures are the metaphysical points within our body that serve to remind us of our sacredness. Cultivating the Three Treasures is seen as an act of refinement such as refining vitality into energy, refining energy into spirit and refining spirit into space. The Three Treasures also represent the three steps in recognizing your path. 1st step in recognizing your path is allowing mystery to present and being able to respond to it. Opening up to the I AM. (what was just done with the beautiful SO HUM meditation) You are always you, nothing less and nothing more. Allowing mystery means to give up control. It means knowing you simply can be responsive to all the things that seem to come up randomly and that these in itself are the deeper revelations of knowing. It is TRUST. 2nd step is to see the signposts, your world, your experiences the people in you life and how you choose to respond within the co-creation of your reality become the signposts, the markers of your path. Your path is always unfolding before you. 3rd step is to have confidence and pure motivation. Confidence is the result of your capacity to trust. You cannot hold back, in the hopes of building more confidence. You cannot hold back from stepping onto your path once it is revealed in some way to you. Holding back is an indication that you are attempting to examine and rate your abilities. It is usually based upon fear. Instead, let your confidence be driven by pure intention, pure motivation, compassion, heart centred purity. Then your steps benefit you and others. Know that your motivations are sincere. Stay connected with your heart and trust.
