Hiya. Sunny Sunday here today, first barbecue dinner in our garden, yey…

And I had a meeting with the Red Cross Syrian women´s group café today, and they agreed to make some dishes for our big family event “The Diversity Day” on the 17. of June. Where the ngo The Incredibles, we invite all local ngos to get together to create a fun day with our island´s children in focus…

Anyways. Will write more about that later. Second time we do it this year. Check out the facebookpage for photos and more info. (“Foreningen De Utrolige på Fanø”).

Today I did another pretty big thing as well, you see.
I published a facebook page for my vocal sound therapy.
I have known for a while I would make one. But somehow it took time.
I have quite enjoyed the nice and easy trickling of customers.
But I… want the world to know I´m ready to receive people.
And I also need growth to build my clinic up, so it becomes
a stable source of income.

Let me try to glue my new facebook page in right here…:

Sigh. No of course not.  I need my WordPress genie! I’m pretty sure it can be done. “Encapsule link” or something. Can´t find it anywhere on my facebook page´s menus though.

Oh well. My new page is called “Kaltwasser Vocal Sound therapy”. You´ll have to go there to see it. Sorry.

I´m pretty pleased with it. Chose a documentary of my teacher to remain on top of my page. It gives a perfect insight into what she knows and what she does with sound… Which is the methods I use too. The film shows examples of a sound scan and a tinnitus reduction session…

And I added a long text on the “about” section of the page. That I can copy to here, hang on:

Om (=About)
I “sing on people”. Listen for resonnance, and add the sound the body needs. Relieves physical pains, reduces stress levels… Strengthens inner balance.
Send me a message to book an appointment. My clinic is in my home on Fanø, south west coast of Denmark. Write me through facebook here, or send an sms to (45)42801902.

I am Norwegian, and I have lived on Fanø for 10 years, so I speak Danish. And of course English. (I write in English here so that everybody can understand).

A sound session lasts for 60 minutes. It is a rather new field, this vocal sound therapy, so people don´t know what to expect. I tell you all about it when you come the first time.

If you wish in depth understanding, I recommend my teacher Githa Ben-Davids trilogy about her way with sound, how she found the method etc. Wonderful books.

I have also written a few posts on my blog about my training, during the two years I attended courses with Githa. They can be found in the category “Vocal sound therapy” on my site: www.kaltwasser.dk

In addition to the vocal sound therapy, I have just taken an exam in hypnotherapy. So this will be another tool in my toolbox, but first I need to practice, it´s like I just got the driver´s licence, now I need to do some driving to become a good driver. I will practice in the months to come though, so I expect to be a confident and skillfull hypnotist pretty soon.

I love to study. My background is in social sciences from the university in Bergen, Norway. Yet it is hard to find work as a social anthropologist.
I have worked with documentary film production, and I use video in my blog posts. Also made a video poetry installation once, (can be seen on my youtube channel) and self published a book in 2011 in English, poems and short prose reflections on a soul´s journey looking for life´s meaning.

I have 8 weekend modules of training clairvoyance skills at The Clairvoyance School here on Fanø. Ever since my teens I have been reading a lot of self help books, with psychological and spiritual angles.

And I´m thinking to educate myself as a “soul midwife”. To help people who are dying, make their transition… Death has always been very interesting to me. As I don´t believe in its existence. It is just another birth.

Aaaand I love to write. Hahaha….
All this background stuff is not really important. But. It is also nice to know a little bit about someone you choose to confide in. I think.

One of the strengths about vocal sound therapy is that we don´t need to talk so much about issues and their whys and hows. If you want to talk, though, then we do that. And if we are to try hypnosis, some words are needed to replace the dysfunctional thought patterns with more functional/positive ones.

Anyways.
Enough.

Looking forward to meeting with you. I love doing vocal sound therapy. People become so relaxed, surprised and happy. Relieved.
Come have a go and see for yourself if it can be of support for you.

Best wishes!
Lene

Yeah…
This is my profile picture on my therapist page. It is a photo I took of myself as a response to a very sweet message my eldest daughter sent me a few days ago. I took this and sent it as a reply to her.
So now it is out there. Born. My official self presentation as a vocal sound therapist. It feels good.
One third major thing I accomplished today, after publishing this professional page, and gaining the Syrian women´s support for Diversity-Day…
Was that I emailed the Soul Midwives in Dorset and asked them to send me their application form. For their course.
So.
Three hurdles crossed. Three things ticked off my to do list.
The future feels friendly and exciting.

New Year Thoughts

Facebook
rssyoutube

(The photo here is a Facebook poster, and the words for it goes: “In a world full of princesses, dare to be Batman”).

It´s early morning the 31/12 as I write this. 2016. That year where “all” our greatest musicians departed. Many of my favourite ones.

Bowie. Prince. Cohen. Michael. (Thank Goddess Madonna is still here in the physical with us)!
Many other celebrities died as well. Actors, writers. A whole Russian choir just last week. Princess Leia´s mother died the day after her daughter, she told her son she wanted to join her daughter, and 15 minutes later she had a stroke!!

The human heart is a fascinating “thing”. Phenomenon.
I read in an article which had names and photos in it, about a man who had a heart transplant, and suddenly he started writing love poems to his wife! Totally out of character for him. They then found out that the dead man who had donated his heart to this new man, that he actually indeed used to write a lot of poetry.

Real life is such a mystery.
I love it.

Well.
The new is about to arrive. Or. The human beings´ ritual of new cycle, is. Somehow it feels different this year. To me. Coz a few illusions has kind of been removed from my vision. Comfortable illusions that I enjoyed. Like USA not being the ice cold dicatatorship that it now is showing itself to be. The Wikileaks emails of Killary. The probable assassination of Julian Assange. The thought of the Trumpet ringing through our global community in 3 weeks. Him and his nuke button, and his cabinet of retard right wingers.

Yeah. That was a comfortable illusion of mine. Trusting America´s sanity.

I could talk about the world´s political leaders and the children of Syria. But it is too painful.

Shifting focus, or zooming in, to my own personal life, I have had to create a new distance to a person I thought of as a close friend. It feels right, but it also feels sad, or course. Losing what I thought was a friendship… is quite heavy as I live abroad and my friends live in another country.
And my closest friend left here, is suffering from alcohol abuse. So. I need to learn how to distance myself from that as well. Only the suffering person can stop it. No one else can do it for them. Very difficult to accept as a bystanding close friend.

Ok. Gloomy doomy new year´s eve speech here, huh.
Whatever. I´m pro truth. All that plastic fantastic facade stuff…             I don´t have time for it. Life is short.

What I DO want in my life the coming year(s), is:

Real friendships. Where I am seen, heard and understood. As well as holding that space for my friend of course. Reciprocity, equality, generousity. More of that for me. Thanx.

New learnings. I am indeed enrolled in an enormously exciting course the last week of January and February! In Aarhus, at the hands of Human Education Group. I will study to become a certified hypnotherapist!!! How WICKED is that. ???!!!                                             My heart is dancing its happiest happy-dance! I´m reading the curriculum now, and page by page I just feel more and more excited to learn this artform. This tool for helping people in their self help processes. Yes!

In spring I will put a big sign up on my house wall outside. Visible from the main street. It will say something to the extent of:

Vocal Sound Therapy & Hypnotherapy                                                                  by Lene Kaltwasser.                                                                                                   Stress reduction, physical pain relief, tinnitus reduction, better sleep & general wellness.                                                                                              Certified hypnotist by (xxxx), (xxx). And certified vocal sound therapist by Githa Ben-David.                                                                        Booking: sms 55555555, or connect through Facebookpage “Kaltwasser Sound & Hypnosis”

(Facebookpage doesn´t exist yet, and may not get that name).

It´s a lot of words maybe. It´s not finished yet, but work in progress. If you have input, please share in the comments section. It´s important to me to mention I´m certified, authorized. But maybe such info belongs on the wall inside my clinic room instead.  What I do, is not so known, that´s why I want to mention symptoms I have good experience with helping.

Anyways. Yes, this is a thrilling thought, this signpost. I´m leaving some kind of cupboard, coming out. Onto my house wall! Hahaha!!

Parallell to my signposting, I will refurbish a room in my house to become my Sound Space or. Some good title. That is another thrilling project. New flooring, wardrobe, book shelves. Small desk. Room for my massage table for the sound treatments, and a good reclining chair for the hypnosis sessions,  maybe.

So 2017 will be a productive one for me. Materializing my context for the therapy sessions. Until now, I use a room in the house where I each time have to create my space, tidy away other people´s belongings before every session. It is not optimal. I can´t wait to create a whole separate room for the single purpose of twosome quality talks and healing sound vibrations…

Other than work on my source of income, things in my life are good. Healthy happy children, and a kind, creative husband. No one in my innermost circle is dying. Knock on wood. I will appreciate that space. Death has been a central pawn on my life´s chessboard. So I have learnt to appreciate when there is a pause from heavy grieving.

Right. Shall I wrap this up in a song maybe? Something light?

This is the newest discovered song in my universe. It flowed into my ears from my mother´s car radio during the christmas week, while I was  driving around to visit family and friends “back home” in Norway.

I can see on youtube that this video has been watched 205 million 915 thousand times!!! Hahahaha…. So. I guess it´s not that new to most people. But. Hey. I´m way too perfect to be a perfectionist, I don´t mind being behind the slashin´ fashion from time to time. (And that sentence should become the first line in a new song of mine).

Happy 2017, peeps. Make it work for you! Whether it is a year that demands of you to break free from situations or people you hold dear… or death visits your inner circle, or you struggle with illness…. Let´s just try our best to make it work somehow. Be positive. It is the only healthy way to be.

I wish you Love and Light.

Namaste.

(Means: The divine in me honours the divine in you).

To Heal

Facebook
rssyoutube

In my native tongue Norwegian, to heal literally means “to make whole”. “Spread wholeness”. Which is a nice and concrete description. As healing is exactly that; to help something or someone become whole again. Return to the natural undisturbed state of being.

Last Saturday, the 12. of the 12., I became a certified healer. Vocal sound therapist. Finishing two years of studying Githa Ben-David´s method of “singing long tones on people”, giving the sound that the client´s body resonnates with.

Here is a clip from youtube where you can see her working. She speaks in Danish, but. Still. Informative. The client regains some of his previously lost hearing!

Well. That´s my teacher. She sparks and glows and inspires. Now her trilogy about sound healing has been translated into English, and she will start new sound healing classes both in Denmark, England, Ireland and Holland this upcoming year 16. You can read much more about her and her healing method under my blog´s category “Vocal Sound Therapy”.

Well. Here is a short clip I made from our certification ceremony last saturday.

The audience of friends and family members, were instructed in how to make the “tone from heaven”, and then they stood up and formed a singing channel, which each of us students walked through, singing, ending up by our teacher, to receive our certificates and an encouraging remark. Very meaningful and beautiful. After the happening, we shared the visitors´ gifts of ecological sweets and fruit, together with them, downstairs in the church where we had turned a big room into a simple cafeteria setting. Appreciation. Reciprocity. Enjoyment.

Being a healer. The archetype is a vast one to grow into. It takes time. I am taking it step by step I´m having people on my massage table, giving them sound and seeing if it can help them. They become surprised, very relaxed, some see inner images, symbols… many fall asleep… My fellow students / my fresh colleagues in this field; some of them cure tinnitus after tinnitus, some help people with insomnia (problems sleeping), some help autistic kids, and Adhd kids find inner calm, a peace within themselves.
Ulcers have diminished as well. Hearing has been regained. It seems to have a good effect on stress symptoms.

It is a pioneer field. Githa does scientific research together with scientists and medical doctors when they approach her and ask if they may try to measure effects. Githa also appears on Danish television when they ask her to. In one programme a client was linked up to measuring equipment in a hospital, and the doctors were surprised to see a strong effect on the client´s blood pressure, and on the vagus nerve.

The body consists of so much water. We know that sound vibrations have effect on water. Maybe does the sound help the cells return to their natural, healthy frequency. We don´t know exactly. Yet.

I am so grateful for being a part of this new field, to be one of the lucky ones to explore the effects of the method. I will walk forward one client at the time, I can not promise results but I can promise I will do my best. And then we will see.

we rise by lifting others

Yes. It is such a win win thing to give. I ask for Light and Love, and let the energy flow through me. So I receive it as well. I always feel so joyful and energized after giving a sound session. Mindblown.   🙂

The feeling can be illustrated like this, maybe :    🙂

healing energy coming through

Healing is a big word. Taken to mean so many different things. Religious things as well. But it´s all really about finding some kind of inner balance, isn´t it? To feel whole… at rest… fearless… healthy in mind, body and spirit.  In Balance. Natural. Peaceful.

We use the word in so many ways. To heal old wounds, hurts, to heal relationships…

In four days it is christmas eve. And to me christmas is a healing time. A time to show love, show care. To be gentle, considerate, to give.

To many of us it is hard to spend all that intense time together with the family members we try to avoid contact with the rest of the year… Christmas is not an easy time.
Yet it can still be a healing time. Though difficult, it can give positive surprises, that would not have been possible if we did not try to get together, try once more to approach and to show care to those we have in our innermost circle.

“The wounded healer” is a book I will read in the new year. About Jung. About how we can, through our own woundedness, know how to help others in their healing processes.

Time to heal the world as well. To quote that wonderful song by Michael jackson. A true christmas spirit song, at least in my book it is. Time to give to the homeless, to the hungry Africans, to the refugees on Lesbos… Such an unbalanced time we live in right now. All the suffering. Can make us feel powerless.

I finish here.  Wishing each and every one of you  a peaceful, happy christmas.  Share some care, everwhere!

I was going to post MJ´s song here from youtube, but the visuals are so full of tanks and KKK and nazis and barbed wire…. makes me sick to my stomach.

So, please go and  find the song on a cd instead, or Spotify or whatever you use as your music source.

I finish with these two images instead of that disturbing music video. Let´s heal ourselves and go get help when we see we that need it.
And let us together heal the world.

New Beginnings

Facebook
rssyoutube

It´s early evening. My husband is playing christmas carols on the piano downstairs. I am thank Goodness almost well again after 3 days of no sleep and lots of sneezing and coughing.

It´s a special week. Quite non busy, compared to my regular schedule. Then on the other hand, busy in unexpected ways.

I have helped a newly arrived Syrian refugee fill in his “family reunion” papers, for one. 84 pages of questions. In Danish. Quite a task. But interesting. Tomorrow we are finally ready so he can send it. It takes 3 months before the right office looks at it in Copenhagen. They are very busy. So many Syrians in Denmark suddenly. You know.

He is a lovely person, and I am sure his wife and two little daughters are lovely as well. I hope they can come soon. Knowing they are left behind in that war zone makes me stressed. Even though I don´t know them. Just the thought of children living in a war zone…

eye for eye whole world blind

Well. I am just counting on his reunification going through and they come and we get to know eachother. Any other thought is unwelcome. It does not help to worry.

I want to see all children happy and at peace. Like these:

 

baby and puppies

garden bath tub

Other than helping him fill in all those papers, I am preparing to go to Copenhagen on Friday for my last course weekend in my 2 year long education as vocal sound therapist under the eminent leadership of Githa Ben-David. We will practice on Friday and then we´ve invited family and friends to come attend our ceremony / concert on Saturday. I know it will feel overwhelming, moving, sad and solemn and proud and empowering to me. Us students will all be dressed in white. We will be singing our long tones standing in a circle around the audience. We will show them different things that we have learnt. We will receive our diplomas.

It has been such a life changing journey, this course. Never have I felt part of a group like this one, either. Like I have talked about in my other blogposts in the category Vocal Sound Therapy.

scenen

This photo is from one of the two places we have been meeting for course weekends. What a place. Audonicon, is the building´s name.The other place is where we will meet for our final meeting on Friday. An old church in Copenhagen. Very special place too. God I´m gonna really miss our gatherings!

“The only constant in life is change.” Said the Greek philosopher Heraklit. Which is true.

It is nice to finish something. Full circle. Step up onto the new level.

There has been a couple of other first time things / people too, coming into my life, this week. Not things I feel to tell the whole world. But just to say that… there is a time for everything, also for new beginnings. And many times, the new emerges in groups… several incidents of the same kind of change, happening simultaneously… Fascinates me.

A friend of mine also received her Gohonzon actually, this week.

Gohonzon1

I don´t know if you know about the buddhist group Soka Gakkai? I have been chanting with them sporadically for a good handful years now. I really love it. The chanting, the meaning, the people, their purpose. Being present at my friend´s receival of Gohonzon, made me feel for the first time that I too might actually want one in my own home. To make it be a more regular practice.

I don´t have a religion to convert from. Nor do I enjoy being a member in exclusive clubs. But Soka Gakkai is not excluding anything in any way. It is very open for individual interpretation. Of course I agree with the Lotus Sutra; that we create our own consequences in life. Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo means something to the extent that “I take full responsibility for my thoughts, words and actions, and I believe in the Law of cause and effect.”

Sorry if I sound… too loose… I could google this and paste some serious sentences from Wikipedia or better, from Soka Gakkai´s homepage.

I don´t allow myself this informal description to say that I am casual about it. On the contrary I have the uttermost respect for this peace building and empowering spiritual movement. I just value so deeply their generosity for people to form their own meaning around the practicing. And my informal description symbolizes the joy I feel for being given this freedom. I´m allergic to dogma. Soka Gakkai is non dogmatic. I am grateful for their ways.

 

Chanting feels immensely good to me. And I agree with the Soka Gakkai buddhism. And zen. And taoism. And esoteric christendom. And don´t forget I am a spiritist, deeply into communication with the loved ones who have crossed over. Like I have said many times:

Love is My Religion.

And:

 

nature is my temple

So.

New beginnings. New relationships. New ways of doing things.

Time will tell what will be. All I can do is follow the flow and grow.

Leaving behind

hold vision trust process

Trust the process. Yes. I´ve called this post Leaving behind. Which is meant as a synonym for letting go. As this is the emotion filling me today. I was at a sound healing course again this last weekend. Second but last time before our 2 year long education is finished. And it was the last time we met in that extremely beautiful Rudolf Steiner building of Audonicon in Skanderborg.

audonicon1

audonicon2

I love that building so so much… I will consider taking an other course, as long as it´s situated in that building! Time will tell…

We always stay the night when we are there. This time I put my mattress and linen on the stage in the big concert hall. Only me. Next to the grand piano. Every time I coughed, it echoed! A lovely experience. Slept very well there. Here´s my view from the stage:

AudoniconsalenSetFraScenen

And here´s the stage. My bed was just behind the black curtain on the left hand side.

scenen

There are many beautiful rooms for learning, in the building. And a wonderful little library with a tiny, winding wooden staircase with a seat built into it, invisible until one stumbles upon it. Can´t find a photo of it online though.

They have a bookstore, look:

bogbutikken

bogbutikken 2

Yeah… Audonicon darling. I´m leaving you behind now. I have enjoyed every second I have spent in your space. And I will try to come back to you later, in a new context. I wish you prosperity and keep you forever in my heart.

Another building I am about to leave behind, is my mother-inlaw´s home. Her little house in the woods, on the isle of Rømø. She died a little over a year ago. The family has left it as she left it, until recently. Now we are in the process of sharing the worldly posessions between the two sons of the lovely couple who were my parents inlaw. I am very grateful that the process of sharing is a peaceful one, with humour and warmth. Soon we are finished, hopefully the day after tomorrow is the last time we´ll have to meet to do this work. And on Sunday, the 01/11, the house is bought by my husband´s brother.

Same day, we go for a week to Budapest, my husband, myself and our 3 homeliving kids. So that will be an apt symbolic marking, for moving out of the old and into the new. Fresh memories to be made.

I can´t find photos of her beautiful place right now. But here´s a couple of pictures of her. The world´s nicest and wisest grandma Ellen. Here she is September 2013. She always did puzzle after puzzle with our Viola, and read book after book to our Linus-Ferdinand…

farmor puslespill

And here she is christmas eve 2013, we are dancing around the christmas tree… she was so happy. Most of the time she was just very happy, and with such a positive outlook on life. Miss her badly.

farmor juletre

This christmas will be the first one we celebrate in Denmark without her. Last year we celebrated at my mom´s in Norway. This year we will dance around the christmas tree in our home without grandma. Such is life. Death is part of the natural life cycle. It will feel sad. But we will huddle up closer to eachother and try and fill the gap best way we can. Maybe we will light a paper lantern and let it loose into the sky, thai style… we will make it meaningful, this christmas. Comforting, in spite of our family´s missing cornerstone.

So yes. We are letting go of her, little by little. And on Sunday we leave her house behind. I guess  we will probably be invited to visit the family there for a barbecue in the future. But it is not our place anymore.

Found this now, in a Facebook album… “The Cafe”, a spot at the back of her house… her husband Paul built little places to sit, everywhere around the house, so they could always be outdoors and not be bothered by the wind. Ellen published 11 books. So most probably she has sat here many a time with a good idea and pen and paper…

cafeen

More than Audonicon and Ellen´s house, today is also the day my father died in 2010. 65 years old. I miss him, and the worst bit is that he is missing from my children´s childhood. I don´t seem to have a good photo of him at hand or I would place it here now… there is actually a photo of him as a young man, where he looks like James Dean. Honestly! Not just bragging!! 🙂 We miss you, Leif Arthur Henriksen.

Oh, I found this one. Taken July 2010. We didn´t know then that he would die soon. They said he was free of the cancer. We took him to hospital in October as he was not eating and drinking enough. Then they found cancer everywhere and he crossed over 3 weeks later. A shock!

My eldest daughter on the left here, was almost 6 years old. Her cousin Emily 4 and a half. It was so painful to walk with them behind the coffin. They loved him immensely.

He doesn´t look his best on this picture, after years of battling cancer. But it is a picture that shows so clearly the love between a granddad and his two granddaughters. So I treasure this photo.

morfars siste sommer

Leaving behind… something is wrong with that concept… Moving forward is more correct… the past is the past but our crossed over relatives are very much still part of the present… time is an illusion and now is the only reality there is. And in the now all is present.

Well. I leave the headline as it is. What is finished, is finished and change is the only constant. Moving on. “To boldly go where no one has gone before”. To quote the captain of the starship Enterprise.

Why Sound Heals

Facebook
rssyoutube

Good morning… Autumn holiday here now. I just read this on Facebook, and decided it should be a part of my info bank in my category of Vocal Sound Therapy. Now I must find out about the Sri Yantra. And find apt frequency meditation on Youtube. Wishing you a restful and smiling Sun-day.    🙂

Why Sound Heals

By UPLIFT on Saturday October 10th, 2015
WhySoundHeals-monks

What Produces the Healing Power of Sound?

 

We can feel it when we turn on the radio and our favorite song happens to be playing, or when we sit quietly and listen to the rain. There is a palpable peace when we are absorbed in quiet and a different kind of rejuvenation when we hear the wind in the trees. There is no doubt that sound has subtle, but profound effects on our body, minds and spirits. How exactly does sound work, though, to heal us?

Just Like an Orchestra, You Can Tune Your Body

Have you ever listened to an orchestra prepare to play an invigorating symphony? There is a cacophony first with the woodwinds and strings, horns, and timpani making quite a ruckus, but when they tune their instruments precisely, the sound that washes over you like a wave, can bring peace and excitement that surpasses some of the most invigorating practices on earth – like sky diving, or dropping 45 feet into a hidden cave.

Sound healing session
Sound is not unorganized chaos. It is a dynamic but ordered pattern. – Dr. Hans Jenny

The body works in much the same way. If a single instrument (organ, or organ system) is playing its own tune, and not in harmony with the rest of the body, disease is more likely to happen. As sound therapist, Dr. John Beaulieu, ND, PhD explains:

The fundamental principle of Energy Medicine is that an underlying energy field generates physical, emotional, and mental behaviors or symptoms. If we change the energy field, the physical, emotional, and mental behaviors will also change.

Cymatics

One of the most effective ways to change the energy field is through a science named cymatics. Though he was not the first to discover that sound could heal, Dr. Hans Jenny, M.D. of Basel Switzerland put together some fascinating experiments where we could literally ‘see’ how sound works.
Jenny created ‘cymatics’ when he put sand, fluid or some other powder on a metal plate that was attached to an oscillator. An oscillator is essentially a vibrator, but his oscillator was controlled by a generator that was able to produce many thousands of types of frequencies. Some of these can be found in nature, and others are created by man.

Cymatics pattern
Powder on a metal plate, attached to an oscillator

By changing the frequencies on the oscillator, Jenny found that sand, or water or whatever substance he was using to create a visible medium for his sound, would morph into some very interesting shapes. These shapes mimicked the properties of divine geometry, and the higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes would appear to be. He wrote:

Since the various aspects of these phenomena are due to vibration, we are confronted with a spectrum which reveals a patterned, figurative formation at one pole and kinetic-dynamic processes at the other, the whole being generated and sustained by its essential periodicity.

What Jenny was observing was really a simple way of observing matter come to life. Since we now understand, through the emerging field of quantum physics, that patterns emerge via waves of energy, the plates were showing the scientist a similar phenomenon. In ancient Sumerian society, this was a known fact. This is why practices like mantra were held in high esteem. The seed syllable, OM, for example, causes a certain frequency to imprint upon the ‘matter’ around it, and thus changes the energetic field.

Monastery of Christ In The Desert
Abbot Philip Lawrence from Monastery of Christ In The Desert

“The kind of singing that we do calms the spirit and helps us live in peace with our world and with one another,” says Abbot Philip Lawrence, a scholar of chant who also leads the Monastery of Christ In The Desert – home to an American order of Benedictine monks from Abiquiu, New Mexico. “Chanting has some strange effect on the brain waves according to various studies,” continues Abbot Philip, but this effect is certainly not the Monks of the Desert’s objective; rather their goal, and that of Gregorian chant, notes Abbot Philip, is “to focus on the words rather than the challenge of voice production or sight reading. It is always our hope that our singing will bring others to peace, inner tranquility and an appreciation of beauty. These values can help create a world in which peace and tranquility prevail.”

Since all matter is just different frequencies of the collapsed wave, or quantum field, then we have the ability to create a different reality with sound.

Sound and the Golden Number

The possibility for great healing can be seen in the science of sound. The picture of the Sri Yantra, a mandala created by sound, and said to be imagined by a yogi in deep meditation, is a representation of one of the oldest sounds in the world. Some call it a manifestation of divine sound. The triangles that appear in the Sri Yantra are perfectly integrated based on the divine number, Pi, which is also the basis for the golden mean, Phi. The Greek philosopher, Pythagorus understood sound and divein geometry, and it was written about by Euclid in “Elements” around 300 B.C., by Luca Pacioli, a contemporary of Leonardo Da Vinci, in “De Divina Proportione” in 1509, by Johannes Kepler around 1600. Many others knew of this ‘cosmic’ mathematics, and its power to heal throughout the ages.

The harmonics of sound work to create order out of chaos

The harmonics of sound work to create order out of chaos. Disease, you might say, is a form of chaos in the body. According to Dr. Robert Friedman, the connection between the Golden Ratio and ideal health was a no-brainer. During his medial residency in the 1980s, Dr. Friedman began observing the Golden Ratio throughout the human body—on the anatomical, physiological, and molecular levels. “The deeper I looked,” said Friedman, “the more deeply I discovered this incredible and ubiquitous Code to be embedded throughout the structure and function of the body…it only followed that the more one could harmonize with this grand principle, the more efficient and effortless life could be.”

Healing Frequencies

What is illness?

Emotional issues that are unresolved block the healing vibrations or cause the disease state to return.
– R Gordon

Over millennia, those who have studied the science of sound, have come to understand that certain frequencies are very healing for the human body. Overall, however, you are trying to create resonance – “When two systems are oscillating at different frequencies, there is an impelling force called resonance that causes the two to transfer energy from one to another. When two similarly tuned systems vibrate at different frequencies, there is another aspect of this energy transfer called entrainment, which causes them to line up and to vibrate at the same frequency.” (Richard Gordon)

Certain frequencies are very healing for the human body

When we ‘entrain’ with healing frequencies, our bodies and minds vibrate in harmony. These include:

285 Hz – Signals cells and tissues to heal. Leaves the body feeling rejuvenated.
396 Hz – Liberates guilt and fear to make way for higher vibrating emotions.
417 Hz – Allows the ‘undoing’ of challenging situations.
528 Hz – Said to heal DNA, repair cells, and awaken consciousness
639 Hz – This is the vibration associated to the heart. It allows feelings of love for self and ‘other’ until there is no longer a distinction. To balance relationships, listen to this frequency.
741 Hz – Said to clean the cells and heal them from exposure to electromagnetic radiation. Helps shift someone into empowerment so they can create the reality they wish to see.
852 Hz – Awakens intuition.
963 Hz – Activates the pineal gland, and aligns the body to its perfect, original state. Of course, there are further frequencies, many of which that are not even within the human range of hearing, but they are healing nonetheless. George Lakhovsky, a Russian engineer understood the power of sound as well. He understood that certain frequencies would make a living being grow stronger. I hope you are able to find healing in the frequencies I’ve described, and that this introduction to why sound heals will spur you to learn more.

At the root of all power and motion, there is music and rhythm, the play of patterned frequencies against the matrix of time. We know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones of its particular frequencies, its singing. Before we make music, music makes us.
– Joachim-Ernst Berendt, The World is Sound

At the bottom of this post is an interview with my sound healing teacher Githa Ben-David and her husband, former popstar (and present author of spiritual books) Lars Muhl. They will release their new cd September 22., and I am so very much looking forward to that.

I have listened a LOT to their last album from 2012 (I think); “To heal the space between us”.  Amazing songs. Which all have catchy melodies and beautiful lyrics, many of them functioning as affirmations and prayers to me… I sing these songs very loud in my car when I have emotions that want to be expressed.

“Any wrong condition, in my body, mind and life, is dissolved and crushed by Divine Love…” Is just one example of affirmations…

🙂

Here is a medley:

Beneath is the interview from Vimeo, with the two wonderful people. And in between them talking, are ten clips from the songs on the upcoming album. Their two sons, age 18 and 10, are also singing on the album. And one of the songs, “A message from Dennis”, came through as Lars was sitting playing the grand piano at their friend´s place, Al Jardine from Beach Boys…

Yeah. That´s all I want to write here and now about this. I just got so excited seeing this vimeo video, that I needed to immediately share it with you!

You can see many videos with both Githa and Lars on their site Cosmoporta. Also in English. This interview alas has no English subtitles (yet?).
They explain why they have chosen to record this album using analogue, old school equipment… very interesting. So at least Scandinavian blogreaders, do enjoy their talk! The rest of you, who don´t understand Danish, enjoy the clips from the songs, and check them out on Cosmoporta, Youtube, books, cds… these two are very special people, and I love them very dearly. Maybe you will too.

Like I said, she is my teacher, so you can read about the education she´s giving in my blog category “Vocal Sound Therapy”. There is also a blogpost called http://kaltwasser.dk/introducing-githa-ben-david/

Vocal Sound Therapy #10

Facebook
rssyoutube

So. Last weekend I went to one of my courses again. In a church in Copenhagen, 22 of us and our teacher. Friday she taught us how to use castor oil to purify the liver. Saturday we had our exam. 132 questions in 3 hours. Yet she said that if we couldn´t finish in that time, then we could take the paper home and send it to her once finished. Which luckily I didn´t have to do. I was well prepared, and it paid off. Nice to feel I had made an effort big enough to feel pleased about myself. And a nice feeling to see that I actually know and remember many central questions now, from our curriculum. I love to study. To learn.

 

silent and listen are spelt same letters

To listen. Is the major part of the education I´m doing. To listen for the resonance between a tone I make, and the body I´m “singing on”. And, apart from voicing the tone, be silent. Within, I mean. Empty of thoughts, focused on just listening, listening. And when the sound is right, to keep giving that sound to that particular place for a while. Very, very fascinating stuff.

(See my blogpost http://kaltwasser.dk/introducing-githa-ben-david/ for an impression of my teacher and the method that she teaches).

We also show people how to use their own voice to work through their emotions, and release old emotional wounds. During a treatment Saturday, suddenly more and more of us started to resonate with one of us, who was dealing with a trauma. I did too. So I found myself standing in the middle of the circle, together with 7 others, “cryingsinging”, expressing stuck emotions. Whilst each of us had a fellow student supporting us. And the rest of the group stood all around us and sang long tones together…
It lasted quite a while. It was mindblowing. I almost don´t have words for it. I feel like a different person after that. Liberated, uplifted. And with a whole group covering my back, so to speak.
Fills me with gratitude. This is such a big deal in my life.

openminded vibing along

At one point during the weekend, we sat in our usual circle and our teacher asked us to share our experiences with practicing vocal sound therapy, how we think it is going. One of us is having an amazingly high success rate treating tinnitus patients. An other is helping people be able to sleep better.
Yet an other gets all these women who want to “sing themselves free” from low self esteem and low self worth… Very interesting how patterns seem to develope.

When it became my turn, I told them how I still mainly treat people I know. (To grow into the role of therapist. My friends I can ask for feedback on all the aspects of a treatment). And that the only complete stranger I have had on my massage table until now, was a dying cancer patient, and how that meeting moved me deeply. (I described it in the blogpost http://kaltwasser.dk/crossed-over/

My teacher said that maybe I can use the therapy method to help dying people with their crossing over. That really got me thinking.

I have always read a lot about death and dying. It is a subject so close to my heart. (See my blogpost http://kaltwasser.dk/dealing-with-death-kubler-ross-jung-and-tolle/ for more on that) …

A fellow student approached me in the break, saying she had been thinking along the same lines, and let´s talk about it, maybe we could do something together. That to me, is very exciting. Everything new is so much easier to break into when one has a person to co operate with.

I just read on Facebook this morning that Wayne Dyer crossed over Saturday night. Age 75, just. I have many of his books, and a dvd or two as well. A very inspiring man. Who was looking forward to dying with excitement. I wish him a happy journey. Have a glimpse of him here:

Yeah…that weekend. So grateful.

Things I Would Like to Have

vegan sushi

Look at this! Vegan sushi!
Made by Johanne Mosgaard, who is about to publish a vegan cookbook here in Denmark, she has a facebook page called Englerod (loosely traslated into…Angel´s mess…?).

I used to eat mainly vegetarian until I got pregnant first time age 32. Then came a craving for meat.
But I still prefer vegetables, and eat as vegetarian as is practical…

When we were in Bergen a couple of weeks ago, my friend Katarina actually invented some kind of new way to have sushi! Basically it was salad, sprinkled with sesamy oil, then there was prawns, wasabi and ginger, different sauces to dip in, and lumps of sushi rice, some with raw fish on top others with avocado and cucumber… Wow. Delicious.
I want more tasty, healthy, energizing food!

librarian´s wish chair

Love this chair! Just need it to be a bit wider and longer, so I can stretch my legs and have 2-3 children next to me! 🙂 I want to spend more time reading to my kids!

palm reflexology

I want more knowledge of the meridians, to learn more about acupressure.
Also other alternative methods, such as light-therapy, scriptotherapy…
So much I would like to look into and understand about tools for bettering health.

Well.
Patience.
I have an exam 28.of August, in vocal sound therapy. So first and foremost, I need to read up to prepare myself for that. My course ends in December, where I must have ready 30 journaled cases from my massage table, as well as a home made film from one of my therapy sessions.
So a bit of vegetarian sushi here and there, a bit of reading to kids here and there, but my main focus now needs to be on the three books my exam will revolve around.

I have sat many exams before. 5 years of uni studies, in social sciences.
But the last exam I had was 15 years ago! Wow… it flies…
And I did not have children. That is a huge difference.
My time was my own. I owned it.

But I will make it. Just need to organize time to read. Instead of spending spare time on Facebook or playing with WordPress.

🙂

Which reminds me.
See you later!

vibe attracts tribe

I just got back home from a big birthdayparty in Faxe outside of Copenhagen. A three and a half hours’ drive from home. Dorte turned 60, she is the wife of one of my husband’s best mates from childhood. It was lovely to meet her friends and family. All such lovely individuals. Artists, musicians, writers, architects and healers. Every conversation I entered into, was about something interesting and exciting! Ofcourse as in all parties, one introduces oneself and ask eachother “who are you?” And since I got myself a big wad of business cards a week ago, I used them, telling people about my educating myself into becoming a vocal sound therapist, and telling them about my blog. And it turned out that everybody I talked to, knew about my teacher Githa Ben-David and the work she does! One had used her cd for her singing practice, another had been to a course learning Indian style singing from her, a third had a recording studio where one of Githa’s students has recorded a cd of self made songs which she uses in her therapy… One conversation after the other, and each one so relevant to me, inspiring…!

One lady, she told me she had had many different jobs, from “spiritual editor” at a publisher’s, to her current job, which is to coach composers… I asked her, “but what would you then call yourself, as a gathering label of all these tasks you do?” She laughed and said, “I’m spiritual. So I just go where I get directed to go, and help people there in the way it’s needed.”

Something actually fell into place for me in that moment.
I have written so many poems and songs about not feeling at home in labeled boxes, how no profession title seems to fit me.
(Last time in the blogpost Being a poet).

The business card helps me to frame what I do. It says Kaltwasser Heart Matters on it, vocal sound therapy, educated by Githa Ben-David, and then my contact details plus the blog’s address. On the back side of it, I have written a line in the middle that I’m really quite proud of, because it manages to pinpoint all my passions at once.
It says:
Vocal Sound Therapy & Maker of Video, Songs & Poetry

And it rhymes! 🙂
I dig it.

I exchanged cards with 3-4 people yesterday. One of the ladies was an artist, doing graphics, and helping others with web design, and then she also makes jewellery out of old typewriter keys, and sells lettere, physical letters… All this was told efficiently on her business card, helping potential customers see what it is she does… a way of packaging and presenting information…that really works, and really is a helpful tool in this era where we move into a new paradigme and into the age of communication, and things are fragmented…

In the car on the way home today, it suddenly hit me.
I am a medium!
That’s what I am. That’s a label I can identify with and that covers me fully. I let stuff through from sender to receiver.
I’m a channel. For words, and sounds, and light and love from Source, or Spirit.

Often, when I write a poem, I write very fast. And only afterwards, when I read it, do I discover rhymings and rhytms in the text. Often words are used that I don’t normally use. Old fashioned ways of putting things.
Not automatic writing. But inspired writing. As it’s called.

I have after all taken 8 weekend courses at the School of Clairvoyance here on Fanø. (Described in the blogpost by the same title). Studied mediumship.
I did not feel I was to do platform work, giving messages from Spirit to an audience. I liked the one to one sittings more. But something told me to take a break. Then Githa’s books reached me, and I was ignited by them into applying for her two year long course. (Vocal sound therapy has its own category on my blog, if you want to know more about it).

So yes. A bridge, a link not missing, a connector, transmittor.
A channel. A medium. I can actually feel at home in that label.

Some use the word lightworker. But I’m not 100% sure what of the meaning of that word. I definately work for the Light, to increase consciousness, both my own and others’.
(As was also confirmed in my soundhealer inauguration, see the post with that title for more info)…

It is…. a great relief to me actually. To be able to define “what I am”, or the title of my profession.
I’m in the healing business. Using sound. And silent, written words. Connecting video images to my poems turned into songs.

Your vibe attracts your tribe.
Imagine, I too belong somewhere!
Among other communicators, transmitting strengthening energy from Source. Aiming to uplift.

It is all coming together now. Integrating within, giving me clear impressions, to express to empower.

I’m a lucky lady.

acceptance

Let me finish this talk with a song that comes to mind. She’s a mystery to me. Because I am a mystery to myself. Hahaha…
The lyrics aren’t that apt, just that one line. And I like the melody a lot. It is an optimistic one, somehow.
Happy go lucky vibe. Central to my tribe.
