Sound healing practices for home use

What is sound healing and how does it work?

Minna explains what sound healing is to her, how does it affect us and what type of people come to a sound healing session.

Clearing your sinuses with humming:

This is a very simple yet powerful practice to clear your sinuses during a cold. For stronger effect, add neti pot nose clearing as well.

Clearing your core with vowel sounds:

If you need more energy OR grounding (also great for better sleep), this is a great exercise for you. I teach you to use specific vowel sounds and tones to clears the core of your being. If you need energy or do the practice in the morning, start from the root of your spine to the point in between your eye brows as shown in the video. If you need grounding or practice in the evening before going to bed do the sounds the other way around from head to the root of your spine. Once you are familiar with the vowels, it is easy to do either way. I recommend doing each vowel minimum five times and really connecting to each of the locations in your body.

Low tone humming – release your though patterns and hum yourself to sleep:

When you feel that you are too much in your head and can’t let go of your thoughts, low tone humming is a great tool to use. Close your mouth, let the tongue hand loose in your mouth and find a tone that connects with the lower parts of your body. Start humming and sensing the vibration. I recommend doing low tone humming 5 – 7 minutes or longer. This is also a great exercise to do if you have hard time going to sleep – do it just before going to bed.

Calm your mind and recognize the subtleties in your body and mind

This is a very calming practice that gives you a nice facial massage as well. I recommend taking the time with each of the vowels, noticing how they feel in your body and also where the sound come through in your mouth. Each of the vowels have a very different quality in them. You may notice the difference in the sensation when you sing them out loud with a breathing sound and also silently. I recommend doing 3 – 7 rounds each way. Once you are done, take a few minutes to meditate before you open your eyes.

Breathing exercise to calm your mind and enhance focus

This breathing exercise starts with scanning your body looking for places of tension. Breathing deeper to these areas, you can start the release. The actual practice is done three times in four sections keeping the entire focus on the sound of your breath. First section is breathing in and out through the nose. Second is breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth. Third section is breathing in through the mouth and out through the nose. And the final round is breathing in and out through the mouth.
