Sound Healing For Relationships

This meditation will guide you with sound healing for painful relationships, to help change the dynamic between you and another, whether this is an intimate relationship, or relationship with a family member or friend or group of people. By the end of this meditation, you may feel a sense of relief, or a sudden revelation as to how you could approach the painful relationship differently. Or, you may simply find that the dynamic of the relationship shifts seemingly all by itself over the coming days or weeks. Sometimes relationships reach a point where talking does no good. You simply can no longer communicate due to so many stuck emotions between you, and resentment and hurt are too great to be able to talk freely to each other.

Turn your relationships around with sound and intention

When you actively participate in either vocalising or embracing the sound at the same time as visualising and sensing and feeling new emotions, you have a much greater chance of shifting difficult aspects about the most challenging relationships in your life. This is the essence of one aspect of energy medicine which engages the quantum field, which helps to enable shifts which were not possible simply by talking. This meditation will encourage you to use your voice to allow a sound wave to carry information into a projected picture into your mind and out into the quantum field around you. You may choose to either vocalise the sound out loud, or vocalise it inwardly while picturing smiling energy coming from your heart center into the situation or relationship which is causing you pain. It is said that sound is the basis of all creation-that our entire universe is simply made up from vibration sound and frequency. When we bring focus into sound, with a clear intention and emotional drive, we can use sound to transform our world.

Try for 3 days in a row

The goal of the meditation is not to heal another person or group of people-it is to shift our own emotions about the situation, and in turn, this has a ripple effect on the dynamic of the relationship you are observing or experiencing. If you try this meditation every day for at least 3 days in a row, you may find yourself experiencing different emotions about the person or people in question, and therefore you have access to solutions you were not aware of before, or not open to seeing. The sound you will vocalise either out loud or internally is ‘AH’. This is the sound of the heart chakra. But you may feel free to use any vowel sound you like, and maybe even feel vibrations in different parts of your body other than the chest area with a different sound. Maybe you would like to use the sound ‘OH’ or ‘OO’ or ‘EE’, or ‘ER’. Do what feels right for you, and feel free to experiment with different sounds along the way.

Instructions

To start off, sit comfortably in a place you won’t be disturbed. Place your hands on your belly, and take 3 deep breaths where you feel your belly rising under your hands before you feel your chest cavity expand. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth. I will give you some time to do this, 3 times. Imagine yourself surrounded in green healing light. Picture this green light growing in intensity and getting larger and larger around you and through you like a big protective egg. First listen to the sound you will make either internally or externally. Now, it’s your turn. Imagine this sound vibrating from your heart center, or which ever body part you feel the emotion of this relationship or relationships. Breathe in and feel your belly and then chest expanding, and begin. Repeat this sound another 2 times, and imagine the vibrations of this sound breaking up painful feelings around your situation. Each time you hear this bell sound, that is your cue to breath in, and repeat the sound. Even if you are vocalising this sound internally, still take the breath cues, and go through the motions. Now, lets repeat this another 3 times and imagine the sound releasing the painful feelings from your energy field. Follow the bell cue. Now, for the next few sounds, imagine the vibrations turning into a sense of smiling within you. Imagine as you make the sound, that the vibrations of the sound are carrying a smile towards the person or situation you are focusing on. The vibrations are just smiling golden energy-rippling outwards. Breathe in and do this 3 times.

It’s about shift, not healing

Remember, the purpose here is not to try to ‘heal’ the situation. It is to ‘shift’ the situation. See this person or situation and now as you make each sound, imagine projecting the smiling vibrations all around the scene or situation. Send the vibrations to them, as well as to where you feel this emotion within yourself. Maybe you feel it in your heart space, or your throat. Maybe you feel it in your belly, or sacral chakra. Send smiling energy to every part of your body, as well as any difficult emotion which surfaces as you do this meditation. Imagine the sound transforming, the energy between you, and around you. Shift your focus away from what feels painful, and bring attention to the smiling energy-even if this feels unrealistic to you-act in faith that there is something greater than you that can help you understand and process the situation, to help you move towards what is in your best interests as well as theirs. This is an act of surrender. I will now leave you to do this on your own. Stay present to the sound, and its power to transform and transmute.

Deborah King Be a Modern Master Review

Be A Modern MasterIn this post I am going tor review Mindvalley’s meditation program ‘Be A Modern Master’ created by meditation teacher Deborah King. I will go over the costs of the course, what is required to get the most out of it, who the course is best for and who it is NOT for, how much time investment is required each day and week to maximise results and I’ll also cover the bonus material that you receive when you enroll in the course. First of all, lets cover what Deborah King’s online program ‘Be A Modern Master’ is all about, and what the benefits are in learning this form of meditation and sutra practice.

The claimed benefits of taking this course are to help you:

  • Clear out the buried emotions and past traumas that are holding your life force hostage, so you can get free — mentally, physically, and emotionally.
  • Activate certain centers in the body that expand your spiritual potential.
  • Discover and use responsibly the spiritual gifts that start to manifest.
  • Invoke the high spiritual beings who are there to guide and protect you.
  • Get initiated into higher realms of spiritual dimension.
  • Work with the 7 spiritual rays.
So straight away you can see that this course is quite esoteric and I feel that you kind of need to be ready for it to fully appreciate it. There may be concepts that really challenge your belief systems, and since enrolling in this course, I have already been challenged in this way. However, I still feel I am ready to take this course due to where my attention is these days and what I have learned from a variety of sources over the last 12 months. I came across Be A Modern Master over a year ago, and I actually opted in to free masterclass at the time, but I found myself not connecting with the ideas at all. For example, whenever someone used to mention something like ‘spirit guides’ I kind of used to feel pretty dubious about that. But since then, I feel like I have changed and my world view has been shifted to accept more esoteric ideas and concepts, which is why I was drawn back to take this course, and actually purchases this time because I am much more open to explore these ideas now.

Who is this course for?

I feel this course would be best suited to people who are very open to new perspectives and points of view about the nature of reality and willing to consider how the spiritual realm may operate. You don’t need to have experience in meditation, but I am willing to bet that if you are checking out this course you have probably already experienced meditation in one form or another. If you are looking to get to the heart of what meditation is all about and wanting to resolve long held traumas or emotional traumas in your life, and experience profound relaxation and mental well-being, this course is for you.

Who is this course NOT for?

If you simply want to learn meditation for the relaxation benefits which have been scientifically proven again and again, you’d be better off choosing a different meditation course, because this one goes way beyond the simple benefits of relaxation and stress relief from meditation. It certainly includes all that, but it also goes way beyond it. it revolves around expanding your consciousness and understanding of the world and the nature of the universe which is what the ancients claimed is the principal use of meditation.

Why is Deborah King qualified to teach this course?

Deborah KingTo understand the value of this course, you need to first have an idea of what Deborah’s background is. Deborah had a very difficult childhood where she was sexually abused on a regular basis. Her upbringing was turbulent, but despite this, she managed to become a successful practicing lawyer. But the unresolved pain from her childhood pushed her into seeking ways to find relief through a series of meditation retreats where she regularly traveled to India to learn from the gurus firsthand and get the real deal experience. Over time, she undertook her teacher training and she returns to India 4 times per year to refresh her knowledge and stay connected to her own practice. So, I feel we are lucky to have people like Deborah because I know for me personally, I would probably not make the trek to India to learn such esoteric practices, and quite honestly, I feel I need a western understanding of these practices and Deborah delivers this. In her 20s she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, and this was the tipping point to lead her to explore alternative ways of healing. She took a multi pronged approach to her recovery from cancer in that she embraced both western medicine and eastern practices. She recovered from cancer, and she claims that majority of the healing came from her willingness to explore her mind and emotions through eastern practices, and she says that the most powerful technique she learned to heal deeply held trauma in her body and mind was through the use of sutras, and this is the basis of what she teaches in this course.

What are sutras

Be a modern master week1Sutras are basically mantras used in meditation, however they are used differently to a typical mantra. With mantras you repeat a word or sound over an over again inwardly during your meditation, but the sutras are used at the end of your meditation and rather than saying them over and over like a mantra, you would say each sutra 4 times where the first one sounds louder than the second in your head. So the second time you are saying the sutra is like an echo. Then, you repeat the same sutra before you move on to the next sutra.

The sutras are secret

The sutras are not to be spoken out a loud and once you have received your sutras from a formerly trained meditation teacher, you are not meant to tell anyone what they are, because apparently if you do, they lose their potency for you. So, I can’t tell you what the sutras are of which Deborah gives to her students in the course, as I do want tor respect the teachings. But if you google sutra you will find a wealth of information about them and where they come from and how they are used.

What do you get in the course

Be a modern masterThe course is delivered over 6 weeks online and when you enroll you get immediate access to all 6 weeks. However, it is recommended that you take your time to explore the course. Complete each week in its entirety because the most important thing is that you are developing a solid daily meditation practice of 15-20 minutes in the morning. For me personally, when ever I want to develop a new habit I set myself a challenge. SO, given that this course is 6 weeks, I thought I’d break it down into a 42-day challenge (because 6 weeks times 7 days = 42) and create a chart for myself to tick off each day I complete my meditation. That way it gives me the sense that I am not necessarily committing to do this practice for ever, but I am allowing myself to go deeply into the practice for this limited amount of time and keep myself accountable and take it seriously and track my results so that by the end of it I can evaluate whether this has had a profound impact on me or not. Deborah promises that with commitment, progress and results can happen very fast within a matter of weeks.

The Breakdown

Each week consists of around 2-3 hours of listening to deepen your understanding of what meditation can do for you, and the power of the sutras and how to get the most out of your practice. There are two parts to the weekly listening where part one is simply Deborah teaching, and you can either watch her via video or listen to the audio depending on whether you are sitting in front of your computer or you are out and about such as driving or exercising or doing whatever. Part two of each week is Deborah doing Q&A sessions which are simply recordings of people’s previous questions who have already attended the course at an earlier time. So far I have found these sessions helpful even though they were from a previous time, because they addressed some questions I had and also helped me learn more simply from what people were asking. Be a modern masterYou also get PDF printouts as references to take notes as to what you are learning, and I also really like the fact that they have time stamped certain points in each recording so if you wanted to listen to a particular part again, you don’t have to scrub through the video or audio looking for that section-you can just look at the written time stamp to help you find what you are looking for.

Bonus course

Life Force Energy Healing MeditationThe bonus course you get when you enroll in ‘Be A Modern Master is really important and it is just one hour long and teaches you how to meditate with a mantra. So if you have no experience meditating at all, this part of the course is really valuable. This forms the foundation of your sutra practice because the power of sutras come from a foundation of a solid mantra meditation practice. So each day you do your practice, the structure would be 15-20 minutes of mantra meditation, then 5 minutes of sutra practice.

Cost of the course

There are 3 prices for the course. If you were to go straight to the sales page, the cost of the course as of the 1st of November 2018 is $399US, or 3 payments of $149 (bringing the total to $447 if take the payment plan). However, if you attend the free online masterclass first (click this link to attend) and decide to enroll after the class, you will get $50 off when you pay in full up front.

30 day money back guarantee

One thing that always helps me decide if I am going to purchase a mindvalley course is their 30 day money back guarantee. I do find generally that their courses are a little expensive, however, not once have I ever asked for a refund because I have gained so much from each of the courses I have taken from them. But, if you find that the course is not for you, you can get a full refund before 30 days is up. This allows you to go through most of the course if you are taking it one week at a time before you need to make up your mind to keep it. But like I said before, you get access to the entire course as soon as you enroll, so you can check out everything before 30 days.

Course delivery

Be a modern masterAs with all Mindvalley Academy courses, it is delivered on a high quality digital platform. When you enroll, you will get your own login and password to your own Mindvalley course portal. You can either watch the videos in the course, or listen to the audio. You also have the option to download the Mindvalley academy app on your smart phone and access the course on your phone easily as well. You can either listen or watch via online streaming, or download each file to your computer or phone so you don’t have to be online while accessing the course. Having the ability to do this also ensures that you can fully own the contents of the course rather than only having access from the mindvalley course platform.
