The Chinese symbol for Feng Shui is made of 2 characters, “feng” meaning water and “shui” meaning wind. To us these are ordinary elements, yet when we think about it, they are very indispensable for planetary life. In this blog we will be exploring the “wind” aspect of Feng Shui.
Sound exists with the air we breath and travels through wind. From the moment we wake up, we are surrounded by sound and its many forms of manifestation. It may all start with the sound of an alarm clock, or water sounds, and move to appliances, vehicles, phone, radio, television, traffic – the list is endless. The evening is also filled with sounds, but they are quieter and fewer than during the day. We live in a vibrational planet and we are surrounded by sound, whether we hear it or not.
The quality of the sound has a big effect on ourselves as well as our environment. We practice good Feng Shui when we communicate with good intentions in mind. Words carry and retain vibrational information. Good quality sound has an ability to heal people, plants, animals and the environment; words are the breath of life. Most major religions agree with this statement.
One of the experts in sound is Jonathan Goldman, who uses intentionalized sound to shift the vibration of the body. As a holistic doctor, he uses toning and humming to change the frequency of the nervous system thru the chakras. It is no surprise that his favorite instrument is the voice. He agrees with Edgar Cayce‘s prediction that in the future, there will be no more medical prescriptions, instead there will be sonic prescriptions to heal our bodies. The field of medicine is already using sound with resonance technology to heal different organs. When we heal our body, we also heal our environment. Jonathan Goldhttp://www.masaru-emoto.net/english/water-crystal.htmlman was named “100 Most Spiritually Influential People in the Planet” by Watkins Reviews in 2011.
Dr. Masaru Emoto has studied water and its effect for over 20 years. During one of his experiments, polluted and toxic water from the Fujiwara Dam in Japan turned into a beautiful crystal after the Buddhist Monks offered a prayer to it. Heavy metal music or negative words will show an absence of crystals or molecular structure. When water is being appreciated with love and gratitude, its molecular structure changes as well as its appearance; it bcomes more beautiful and pure. Hexagonal crystals appear in frozen water droplets after it has been exposed to words like “thank you” and “love”. It makes us think how important it is to practice good vibrational sounds, as they have the power to heal. Kind and loving words can boost the immune system.
Since our planet is made of mostly water; that includes animals, plants and human life, we all need that good quality of sound to grow healthy bodies and spirit. Music is a form of energy, a powerful vibration, a manifestation of sound. National hymns have been created to unite a country in spirit. Popular music often mirrors the trend in our different demographics and often inspires them. When great music plays in a plant nursery, there are better crops to harvest. Our pets respond best, just like the people who surround us, to kind and encouraging words. Remember that often a regret people have is, “I wish I would have not said that” or “I will never forget what he/she said…. “
Sound also includes what message we tell ourselves and what record we “play” in our minds on a daily basis. Sound is the first sense we use when we are born as well as the last one to go when we pass. It is said that even when we go through the tunnel we hear a chorus of angelic voices. The vibration of sound can live within our bodies for a long time, whether it is a positive or negative experience. Practice using kind words to yourselves and others, change your message and heal your body. Louise Hay, founder of Hay House Publishing Company, says that the one thing she learned after almost 40 years of work and seminars is to love ourselves. Enhance the energy of your home by playing good music and you will benefit too, play music even when you are not home.
Music is the harmonious voice of creation; and echo of invisible world; one note of a divine concord which the entire universe is destined one day to sound.
