All that exists is energy in vibration. The universe is a song.
One of the best ways to heal or transmute energy patterns that hold you down or bring imbalance into your being is through sound.
Below I share the Song of Emergence, a healing sound practice that helps me when I feel pent-up energy or feel constrictive emotions, like fear or anger that hold me back.
It is inspired in the Cante Jondo, the song in Flamenco, where a powerful ceremonial transformation takes place through sound and movement.
This exercise is easy to do if you suspend self-judgment and allow the organic sound to come up, without trying to make it sound the way you think it should.
It may take longer at the beginning, but now I can do this exercise in three minutes and it works for me.
- Breathe deeply, slowly and gently while listening to your whole body in breath.
- Ask your BodySoul: What holds me back? Listen in breath.
- Tap into the feeling of sensation that rises to answer and focus your breath and attention on that part of your body.
- Imagine this sensation or feeling to be a caged bird seeking freedom.
- Allow the feeling or sensation to come up through your lips as sound. It can be any sound, without words. Engage in that sound, feeling its vibration and allowing it to seek a way out through your lips into the world. Truly surrender to the vibration and get out of your own way, freely receiving and allowing whatever sounds come up.
- Open your mind, your heart and your throat. Keep giving more space to the vibration, allowing it to gain high, breadth or texture as it wants, without trying to control it.
- Keep sounding out the feeling or sensation until the constriction is released. The feeling is that the cage door has opened or the cage has dissolved or broken apart.
- Now keep singing, allowing the bird to fly as high and wide as it wants, enjoying your freedom. You’ll recognize that the exercise is working when the quality of the sound changes organically to a more harmonious, happy and resonant sound.
- Stay with it for a while, enjoying the new vibrations. Receive the new feelings, frequency and any revelation that may travel on its tail.
