Creative Play with Sound

  • Sing. Open your mouth, your eyes, and your throat. Sing at the top of your lungs, or quietly hum under your breath. Use singing to lift your spirits and to breathe more fully. Chant or hum to get your energy vibrating. Use the repetition of the same sound or phrase to relax you, or to raise your consciousness, or to literally reprogram your body to a health-inspiring message.
  • Play an instrument. Maybe it's time to dig out that old guitar, recorder, or drum, or to start taking lessons. For many people, music playing is both a form of energy release and relaxation and a means of creative expression. Drums are particularly good for this and can be used without any instruction.
  • Listen to the movement of air through your nostrils and to other natural sounds in the environment. Use wind sounds in combination with visualization to help you clear certain conditions, such as headaches or a sense of confusion. Use water sounds to encourage relaxation. The sound of birds chirping is excellent for inspiring hope and joy. Be creative. Make up your own uses for natural sounds.

Perhaps you have plenty of musical favorites to choose from already - different selections to help you to relax or to release built-up frustration. But if you don't, it may be time to start accumulating a music library of pieces that you can use for winding up or winding down. Many large music stores have a section of so-called new age instrumental music where you can find many interesting selections. Classical music offers unending possibilities as well. See Appendix A for help in getting started.
