Here’s a piece I wrote last year on March 12 after attending a beautiful gathering of sounds and frequencies and bodies moving in a show of laser lights. I’ve dressed it up a bit more, more photos, I’ve come a long way in just over a year. Now it’s time for part two and this time I am journeying with my Beloved, oh what fun!

The Enchantment lasted well into the next day, it was enchanting, enchantfull, enchantress, articulate LOVE through the cells of the BEING. It was a classic kind of Enchantment where you wake up and return to some kind of normality previously agreed upon. It’s a place where dreams come together and we collect them in the Rainbow Pouch.

Big Rainbow

It was ENCHANTED at the warehouse, it was Rainbow……….at the warehouse……

Dancing in the Enchanted Faery Caverns of the Deeper Realms the theme was purple, bringing the third eye energy into the ZONE, Aquarian pure intention shifts the frequencies, one tone at a time! One tone at a time, in the Enchanted Warehouse.

Tantric Techno Shamans of the Earth gathered at the Sacred Space and set the tone for the human race, they create harmonics that operate on many different levels, clearing out the pathways physical and energetical. The Faeries came and all the Rainbow came, earth, fire, water, and air, we play in the Enchantment, Enchante, life is good. All the Nature Spirits and Devas are welcome in this forest out of time, no-one is endangered here and nothing is ever truly lost. No-one is invited, and no-one came, seems fair enough to me, the pixies reign and Rainbow Man holds the fabric together, quietly. Misted by pain the wizard snaps with sharp teeth…………….. floating, and holding the energy always, anchoring, being the Gathering.

Dancing, trancing, creating a field of love, going on a trip on that beautiful seascape, it was truly Enchanted, feeling lots of gratitude for the time I’ve had out of time.

Lovely Sonic blissings to you all!

The Healing.

I hardly slept that night, the pain killers only took the edge off and I was pretty much in that place for three days, I don’t know how people manage with chronic pain that goes on for years! I got a lift back to the city and I scared my flat mate when I rang him and asked him to get me the strongest pain killers he could find without a prescription. I never even took aspirin for headaches so he knew something really bad had happened.

I couldn’t afford to take much time off work but I stayed in bed for a week and then somehow I got back into doing my corporate massage jobs. Looking back now I’m not sure how I managed but you do what you have to, certainly I was mindful every moment from this point on, even now I always walk carefully to guard against falling.

The treatments I had didn’t have much impact until I got in to see a man I had to wait two months for, from that moment on the healing began, but it was a slow process. He gave me stretches for my shoulders that I did religiously and advised me to change the way I did my massage. I discovered that I was working harder than I had to, my shoulders felt like they had to do most of the work but when I relaxed them the whole of my upper back could participate. I cut back my effort by about 30% and low and behold, people were just as happy with their massages!

I also did many little stretches through the day, often in the few minutes between clients, and it’s amazing what a difference those few minutes can make. Never think that you don’t have time to stretch if your body really needs it. In the end I was working in a way that was much better for my body, I couldn’t exercise so I improved my diet so I wouldn’t put on weight. I toned every day for my healing and started to hear the most beautiful overtones and harmonics emerging from my voice.

I would never want to go through an experience like that again, but it taught me so much, and inspired such growth in my health and well-being, I look back and I offer blessings and gratitude. Even now as my shoulders are aching from flamenco, even so I can bless that most painful part of my journey. I am stretching my shoulders every day and being very mindful in my dance practice, this body is too precious to me for me to allow myself to go unconscious and allow it to be hurt.

Blissings and gratitude for the obstacles on my path which have been such awesome teachers!

A Sonic Valentine.

It’s about time I wrote something about toning again, and the timing is particularly good, as we are a couple of weeks away from World Sound Healing Day. The 14 of February is commonly known as Valentine’s Day, but for the eleventh year in a row there will be thousands of light workers around the globe sending Mother Earth a sonic valentine in the form of Ahhhhhhh. Ah is the sound that relates to the heart chakra, and when I make this sound I can feel my heart opening, it’s a beautiful sound to sing because it is so open.

When you tone it is possible to create harmonics, when this occurs you will hear a fundamental note but at the same time you’ll hear another sound above that which is happening simultaneously. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the sound is actually coming from human vocal cords, it can seem like the high notes on a flute. The first harmonic is vibrating twice as fast as the original note, the second harmonic three times as fast, the third harmonic four times as fast, and so on.

My harmonics do tend to be rather spontaneous, but to create them I am pursing my mouth and my tongue is arching up towards the soft palate, I find it impossible most of the time to create harmonics when making an open sound like ah. So to prepare for the first circle I facilitated on World Sound Healing Day in 2010, I sat and toned ah every day, sitting in the middle of a crystal grid. It seemed like hard work at times but persistence really does pay off, there was a day when I just surrendered to the process and my throat totally relaxed and the harmonics were there and they were beautiful!

I don’t think I have ever achieved that again but I will never forget what it felt like, and I’m sure I will go there again some day. There are so many amazing things to fill our days with, give me an income with no need to spend time at work and I will never be short of things to do!

So if you are drawn to the idea of sending the earth a sonic valentine, I invite you to check out this You Tube clip from Jonathan Goldman, there are links to his website where you can get more information on this special event. I will be holding a circle myself on the evening of the 14th and look forward to it very much indeed!

It’s Just a Ride.

There hasn’t been much about toning in my posts so far, and yet it’s an incredibly important part of who I am. Like moving into the dance, toning is something I feel with my whole being, I become the sound, and the sound is who I am. It was an important part of my healing when I injured my shoulders in 2009, I toned every day for 5 months and the sounds that began to emerge were at times astonishing!

I don’t do perfect harmonics on cue, they come and they go, and what matters is the journey into another reality. Sound is definitely one of the doorways to other dimensions, my dear friend Ulli and I always joke, that it’s our favourite way to get bent. So why don’t I do it every day? Good question, there never seems to be enough time to do everything I want to do, and yet I know that’s a poor response, I know I can do better than that.

I’ve noticed that when I get really busy with work, I actually seem to get more done, something I’ve often heard from others, so I think it’s a fairly common experience. I need to organise my time better, regardless of how many hours I’m working, maybe a daily schedule would be helpful, although the Aquarian in me rebels against such a notion. But the part of me that has two planets in Virgo quite likes the idea, so perhaps I can find a balance between the two.

And in that schedule there will be slots for toning and writing, I did a practice last year where I meditated in silence, then toned, and then wrote from that space, and it was really fascinating to see what came out of the process. I always work with a strong intention, one that I used a lot at that time was:

I open to deeper connection with my larger self, as more and more of my life’s purpose is illuminated and revealed, I live that purpose to the full!

There is no doubt that I am living more of my purpose, but there is always more, more depth, more pleasure, more fun to be had. And if life seems too hard, too stressful, and you think that the power resides everywhere, but inside you, then please remember, it’s just a ride!

The Eye of the Beholder.

Something I have noticed about my world now for some time is the way it keeps changing, at times quite suddenly. It’s like being on shifting sands, hopefully without any boggy bits. I used to hit those patches and get bogged down for days or even weeks but these days it’s more like a few hours or at the most a day or two. It’s tempting in those moments to attach the feelings of doom and gloom to situations in the outside world. But if you do that you are giving substance to something that is simply moving through and quite frankly, as I say to my clients, it’s better out than in.

So the first step is to allow the feeling to be there, don’t try to push it back down or cover it up with something else, like for example an entire packet of tim tams! The stories I could tell about donuts and family size blocks of chocolate are far better forgotten and left in the murky distant past. I don’t do that anymore, well not much, and the addiction to sugar seems to have been finally overcome (she says with great hope!),

I have tools of transformation in my kit bag that can shift me into a healthier frequency very quickly and yet I notice that the resistance to change is still there. I know what to do but I find myself swimming sluggishly through a sea of reluctance until finally I begin to tone, or meditate, or wash the dishes, and the shift into a lighter way of being begins.

For me toning is the most effective tool I have and I will give a very brief description of what it is. Toning is a very ancient form of healing and it probably began somewhere around the time the first caveman stubbed his toe on a rock and said “Grrrrrrrrr..”. It is sounding rather than singing so there are no words and you will sometimes hear beautiful harmonics and overtones within the sound. I do it because it feels good and pretty much instantly shifts me into a better frame of mind and beingness. It’s also very powerful doing it in a group; I run a toning circle once a month in Maleny and it is a beautiful way to connect with yourself even as you merge with the group.

The more that I allow those uncomfortable feelings to move on out the more I feel that connection to everyone and everything. My world becomes brighter not because the externals have changed but because my perception of it has shifted and I am seeing with new eyes.
