Omananda Sound (Therapy)
"Playing Didgeridoo Puts Me Into State"
Did you know that there is a direct correlation between sound and light? Especially the spectral light of creation! It's important for healing and therapy.
There are many references to sounds in sacred scriptures and the spiritual realm. But Western medicine uses sound diagnostically and therapeutically as well.
Sound Therapy is not always harmonious. It can shake up old tissues that can be stuck and sometimes crystalize. An extreme example of that can be found in Western medicine, where sound is used to destroy kidney stones. More subtle sounds can break up tense areas and reinstall the original geometry in the quantum field.
Everything is vibrating! Perhaps, you have heard of Cymatics? Or Synesthesia, which occurs in people who see light inside their minds-eye (the pineal gland) when there is sound. In shamanism, this is well known. Shamans navigate consciousness through sound and vibration. Psychoactive substances can induce visions that move in sync with sound. Those people who naturally "see" are psychics, healers, artists, mystics, and saints. Did you not see colors in your mind's eye yet? What about dreaming? That seems pretty real at times, doesn't it? What about lucid dreaming or having visions? We all visualize the world we perceive or project. Some of us do it more consciously than others. But we all do it. Sound therapy can help one to deep-dive into consciousness and expand the mind beyond the known and learn to see or feel the essential structure which is the foundational reality.

In Western medicine, sound therapy has been utilized in different forms. For instance, music therapy is employed to address physical, emotional, and psychological issues. I use sound therapy to transport individuals without the need of mind-altering substances to cosmic spheres. This is done in combination with prayer and a lot of love and care.
It's important to know I'm not doing the healing. All I do is support self-healing. Our bodies belong to the earth, and just like the planet heals, so can we. Naturally!

In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is often accompanied by the use of tuning forks or musical instruments to enhance the flow of vital energy (Qi) and restore balance in the body. Many cultures have recognized and embraced the healing power of sound. In Indian Ayurvedic medicine, various instruments such as bells, singing bowls, and chanting are employed to induce states of deep relaxation and create harmony between mind, body, and spirit. Watch the video below and use it to relax.

Recent scientific discoveries have shed light on the mechanisms behind sound therapy. It has been found that sound waves can stimulate the release of endorphins, improve blood circulation, and boost the immune system. Research also suggests that specific frequencies and vibrations can have a profound impact on brainwave activity, promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety, and improving cognitive functions. My experiences with sound therapy have been miraculous. (I build my own instruments)
Multicultural references in sound therapy can be found in the healing practices of many indigenous cultures. For instance, the Australian Aboriginal people incorporate the didgeridoo, a wind instrument, in their healing rituals, and so do I. The deep resonant tones of the didgeridoo are believed to cleanse and purify energy, as well as restore balance and harmony, and my experiences can definitely confirm this. I have given sound therapeutic sessions since 1994 and traveled around the world since 1991 - still going...

One notable recent scientific discovery is the concept of "binaural beats." When two slightly different frequencies are played separately to each ear, the brain perceives a third frequency that is the difference between the two. This phenomenon has been found to entrain brainwaves, aligning them with desired states such as deep relaxation or enhanced focus. I use tuning forks and sometimes bells to achieve this, moving them symmetrically around the session participant's ears. One particular set of forks do just that.

In Native American traditions, drums and rattles are used in healing ceremonies to create a rhythmic and grounding experience. The repetitive beats help induce a trance-like state, allowing individuals to release emotional blockages and connect with their inner selves. I also use shaman drums, rattles, and voice during sound therapy.

I work with artists, musicians, and sound therapists from different places, and this is how I learn and how I express myself. By the way, my name is Omananda, aka Torsten, and if you want to find out more about me, check out this page.
Many people have their own opinions about how sound relates to color and the chakras, but this is what I found out to be true (for myself):
