I use vibrational medicine a lot in my holistic healing practice with animals. So what exactly is healing on a vibrational level? I talk about it a lot but I never knew the exact definition of it until I looked it up. I intrinsically knew what I meant when I talked about healing with crystals, color and sound but when asked to explain it I could not articulate it to my satisfaction.
Vibrational medicine is a term used to describe a wide variety of living remedies. Vibrational medicine incorporates the use of chi energies within living organisms such as plants, gemstones and crystals, water, sunlight, and even the foods we eat. Almost everything we touch and see around us has a living pulse inside of it. We need look no further than the planet we live on to take advantage of its natural vibrational remedies to help us balance the chi energies within our own bodies
Vibrational medicine is a type of energy medicine. Energy medicine is based on vitalism, the metaphysical doctrine that living organisms possess a non-physical inner force or energy that gives them the property of life. This metaphysical force goes by many names: chi or qi (China), prana (India), ki (Japan); Many kinds of alternative therapies or energy medicines are based on a belief that health is determined by the flow of this energy: acupuncture, acupressure, crystal therapy, massage, therapeutic touch (TTouch), reiki, healing touch for animals (HTA), healing with sound and vibration (tuning forks, music and drums), aromatherapy (essential oils) healing with color or herbs are a few of the better known therapies.
A shiny rock plucked from the dirt is one of the first treasures I discovered as a small child on my own. Rocks, a natural resource of earth, can be found almost anywhere. We pave our streets with gravel, our beach sands are made from the smallest crystals. We adorn ourselves with gold rings and silver bracelets that are set with colorful gemstones. Whether or not you realize it, within each gemstone and crystal is housed healing properties. Ever wonder why you are attracted to a particular stone and not another? Nature finds a way to get the stones that carry the healing and spiritual properties that are most needed into our hands. I use all different types of crystals in my healing practice. I’ve also created critter crystals that hang off collars and halters (horses/cows/goats) to promote wellness with your pets.
Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties. The sun and moon themselves are wonderful healers! Just imagine what life would be like without sunshine. It has been proven that lack of sunlight contributes to depression for some people. Some of the tools used in color therapy are gemstones, candles, wands, prisms, colored fabrics, bath treatments, and colored eye wear. Laser therapy is a field of medicine that is being developed more and more in the health care community. I use healing with color using the LumaLight to bring color, healing and balance into a pet’s energy field. I also use the STS 2 Healing systems which uses red and infared lights to promote healing and wellness.
3. Healing with Plants and Herbs
All plants (trees, flowers, and even our garden grown foods) have nutritional and/or medicinal properties. The foods we eat have a vibrational energy within them along with their nutritional values. The rite of blessing our food before we eat originated from pagan roots. Thankfulness is offered for the sacrifice the plants give when it is harvested. The Diva Kingdom consists of aromatic herbs used in essential oils and flower essences. Each “Diva” (flower or plant) carries its own unique talent that can be used as a remedy. For example, cherry plum brings mental calmness, clematis is a grounding essence, holly teaches love and acceptance, and so on. I use Bach Flower essences which are made from 38 different plants and flowers to elicit emotional healing in both people and pets. I also use essential oils for a variety of healing purposes both physical and emotional.
4. Healing with the Elements
Our world is comprised four basic elements. These are air, earth, fire, and water. Understanding what each element represents helps us evaluate where our individual strengths and weaknesses are. Healers have found that focusing on the elements and the vibrational energies associated with each of them is helpful when seeking what course of treatments would best address our problems. Approximately seventy percent of the earth’s surface consists of water. This fact alone make water an element awarded our utmost respect. Besides that, our bodies require us to drink water for our basic survival.
5. Healing with Sound and Music
Sound and musical tones are vibrational healers. Chanting OM is the most basic, primal sound and the origin of all sounds. Without our voices and ears, communication would be limited. Some sounds are not pleasant to listen to (fingernail on the chalkboard, a screeching train wheel, etc.) but many sounds are soothing. Nature offers some of the most healing vibrational tones (babbling brooks, whale songs, wind in the trees, and so on). Sound therapists incorporate a variety of sound tools into their work (drums, tuning forks, singing bowls, and others). I use tuning forks for both vibrational (touching the fork to a body) and for sound (the actual vibration of the fork when struck against an activator).
So now that we all know what vibrational medicine can do for us, let’s start vibrating! (ha ha ha)
