Sound healing and Our Ears

Did you know that sound or hearing is one of the first senses that we develop? A human fetus can hear its mothers voice when it is only 18 weeks old. Though researchers are still learning about how sound effects the growing brain at this stage, one thing is for sure; sound, especially high frequency sound increases the electrical potential of the brain. The high frequencies in sound healing through Tibetan singing bowls uses this to induce our brains into deep meditative and peaceful states which aids all aspects of healing.
In addition, the vagus nerve, known as the traveler nerve, goes from out brain stem to all the major organs in our bodies. This nerve has antennas in our inner ear so the healing properties of the singing bowls is also delivered in this manner to speed up the healing process.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge in this post! I'm researching about the effects of sound and/or music to people and its effectiveness in healing, then I happen to land here in your blog. My friends who are into Thetahealing have been telling me that adding music when you meditate gives a soothing effect to the soul. I want to give it a try and see if it's true. Their Thetahealing instructor told that a certain brain wave called a Theta wave is involved in the healing process.
