6 Healing Sounds Infographic
If you have ever engaged in meditation or qigong with hand movements, chances are you have heard of the Six Healing Sounds. This ancient qigong technique dates back to the 4th century CE and utilizes sound vibrations to transform negative emotions into positive virtues.
This easy qigong exercise can be done anytime of the day, including during your commute or while sitting in a meeting. It also serves as an excellent way to wind down at the end of the day before falling asleep – helping you achieve deeper levels of slumber.
Each of the six sounds is associated with one of the five elements and its corresponding organ in the body. Each sound vibrates through your body at a unique frequency that activates that element’s associated organ.
Sound therapy has the capacity to rid the body of toxins and stress, leading to profound and long-lasting transformation.
They can also help regulate body temperature, as Chinese medicine teaches that each organ has a membrane which releases heat and absorbs cool life force energy from nature. When stressed out, this membrane becomes clogged and no longer transmits or absorbs appropriate frequencies necessary for maintaining optimal organ health.
The 6 healing sounds are an invaluable addition to your qigong practice. Not only are they easy to learn and perform, but they can be done at any time of the day – whether you’re facing a stressful situation or simply want to unwind. Furthermore, you can use them before meditation as often as desired in any position or with any movement.
