Good to hear what is around you

I have a story to tell you about oranges. One in particular that came with me last week when I went to Las Vegas to do a concert, some healing sessions and then 2 days of kayaking... Oranges are great on trips because they hold up so well. We were on the Colorado river in a place where there were natural hot springs in the hills just above the camping area. We climbed up there to sit in the mineral bath and I had an orange in my pocket. Along the way I noticed a small group of people with one large man who was sitting with his head in his hands. He had fainted from being in the tub too long and couldn't get down the mountain. Every time he stood up he fell down. He had a cut on his nose from one of the falls and was bleeding. As I walked by I heard someone was saying that he needed sugar so I gave him the orange. For the next 2 days every single person I passed on the river from that group thanked me for overhearing their conversation. They said that it was only after eating the orange that he was able to walk without fainting and that all they had was water. Normally, eavesdropping is not considered to be in good taste but responding to what I heard turned out to be a gift for this man. What is really cool about the whole situation tho is where the orange came from. I had gifted a client of mine who is suffering from cancer a free sound healing session. A few days later he turned up at the cancer clinic where I work with a huge bag of oranges from his orchard. So the orange was the energy of gifting from one person to another. I wonder what gift the man who ate the orange will pass along...

Toning Workshop

I just attended an Overtoning workshop with Wayne Perry. He has written some excellent books on the subject and his cd's have also been instrumental in helping to learn overtoning basics. The workshop itself was disappointing because of the teaching style. Teaching is different than making music, or writing-- and the style of his presentations just did not sit well with me. However, there were several wonderful gems to be had. One was the ability to tone ones name the way it was said as a child with all the negative connotations ( ie.when we were in trouble) Also including the adaptations of our name we didn't especially enjoy-- or used to make fun of us. After energetically repeating our name that way for a minute or so..enough time to release the energy of it, we toned our name the way we want to hear it now.. respectfully, sweetly, appreciatively etc. An adaptation of that activity is something I use in my private tibetan bowl sound healing sessions to help clients release pain - physical or emotional. They make the sound of the pain and then replace it with a soothing sound. It is surprisingly powerful. I would love to hear from those of you who do the name exercise above. Do send in your experiences.
