My mission in this lifetime is to help as many people as possible find their own path to wellness.
Whether that is physical health, emotional well-being, mental stability, or spiritual enlightenment. I am a way-shower. I am here to do the work myself then reach back on the path I traveled to lend you a hand. We are not so different, you and I. We are both explorers. We are here searching for answers to the many questions that we have about life, love, and abundance. What you may not remember yet is that the answer and power you seek already exists, inside of you. I do not claim to have all the answers for you because you already have those answers. I claim to be the creator of my circumstances and to help you see that you are the creator of yours.
We are connected. All of us. And all of us are needed to do our seemingly small part in this great big world. A few months ago I asked, “what is MY part in this shift? What can I do?” The answer came loud and clear. Play the bowls.
My part is to play for you, to inspire you, to activate you, and to move you. The vibration of the crystal bowls extends far beyond your ability to hear them. Their influence brings recalibration, alignment, and balance long after the sound fades out. Whether you believe it or not, it makes a difference. I’ve seen it. I’ve heard it. I’ve felt it and you will too.
What is Sound Healing?
Sound waves interact with your body on a cellular level. When I play a singing bowl every cell of your body is affected and as you listen to the tones a myriad of responses can occur. Your body naturally begins to relax, pain receptors become inundated to the point where they can no longer transmit pain impulses, oxygen levels increase, meditation deepens, emotions are released, and ultimately you experience a natural state of harmony. Elation, relaxation, peace, burning, floating, heaviness, weighted, etc. are all words used by my clients to describe their experiences.
How I Use Oils
I use essential oils for emotional well-being and spiritual work. When you ask me how to use a particular essential oil, the first kind of usage that comes to mind is the emotional or spiritual benefits. This is because I believe that most of our ailments and dis-ease stem from some sort of energetic disruption. Meaning, instead of looking for a physical reason you feel bad, I look for an energetic or emotional reason. Every thought you think and every word you speak is creating your reality. In the words of the late Louise Hay, “...you are not a helpless victim of your own thoughts, but rather a master of your own mind.” I use these oils to support change within the energetic body which in turn affects the physical body.
To attune is to “bring into harmony.” An attunement from the point of energy and sound is about coming into resonance. During a sound healing session, your body is attempting to come into resonance with the higher frequencies of the singing bowls. Anything out of alignment begins to fall away, and this happens whether you are conscious of it or not. Visually it looks a lot like a savasana at the end of a yoga class. You lie down and enter a meditative state. Contrary to what people may expect, you don’t “do” anything. This is a passive practice where the focus is on receiving. There is no skill-level to attain or seek. There is no training, practice, or experience required to participate. You simply need an open heart and an open mind.
At Creatures of Whim in Lexington, KY, I create a sacred space that allows you to go deeper than what is possible in our group sessions. I dim the lights as you relax in a reclined position. Blankets are available for your comfort. I begin by applying one to two essential oils to help focus your mind and bring you into the present moment. From there I may guide you in a grounding visualization or chakra clearing meditation. It really depends on what Spirit calls for me to do. I play the bowls for your pre-determined amount of time and you relax and receive the healing frequencies. Private appointments are available each Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. Click here to check availability.
I absolutely LOVED my sound healing session with Amy. I moved to Lexington and was looking for a gem like her in the area. Her sessions are always evolving, calming, and truly healing. She incorporates sensory experiences as well through organic oils each session; she’ll utilize custom blends for specific purposes which I love. I highly recommend you take an hour out of your busy schedule to find a moment peace with her beautiful singing bowls.
I loved the video in your post and that I had the sound muted but could "hear" in my head and feel the vibration and frequencies in my chest. One doesn't need to hear the sounds to feel the vibrational energy reach them so if anyone ever says the can't hear it, ask them to feel it instead. It's so touching!
Overall the experience was very therapeutic. Lots of emotional releasing going on. Spiritually I received a few downloads that were interesting and important for me to sort through. Physically I felt very out of the body at one point in the session, which for me signifies some serious transformation is taking place. As my day continued I felt much lighter and energized. Healing and transformative.
I love sound and music. I own a few small singing bowls I use at home. I’ve heard crystal singing bowl music via albums. Being sensitive to and receiving of vibrations, I can tell you it’s a phenomenal experience being in the same room with singing bowls. Honestly, it’s beyond words. Amy incorporates intention, meditation, affirmations and many things into healing bowl group sessions. I leave feeling calm, free, and grounded. I highly recommend healing sound with crystal singing bowls to anyone.
Physically: relaxed. Mentally: calm, zen. Emotionally: at ease. Spirituality: open. I would say approximately two days later I felt like I was having an emotional breakdown, and an existential crisis! Like out of nowhere! I found myself feeling a lot of different feelings and wondering what I was doing with my life! It was bizarre, but I also knew that everything I was thinking about and feeling were things I needed to deal with and find answers to, but had been putting off! It was some tough love! Relaxing, spiritual, and awakening!
Relaxed and released. Less anxious. Less on edge. Wonderfully freeing.
It gave me great clarity. I actually responded to a question I’d be struggling with during the session, and then came back to the bowls. More clarity and more peace, at a time when we really need it. A blessing and a clearing.
Transformative. Through the sound waves of the bowls, I was able to transport my mind to a place of healing that I've never been able to reach before. If you have never tried sound healing before and are struggling with healing or finding peace, this is an incredible way to do it. I will absolutely be making this a regular part of my wellness routine.
