Yoga. Sound Healing. Angelic Reiki®. Well-being.
As I have said before, I am taking this time to focus more on my music so I am updating my laurakilty.com site quite often and not updating my Resounding Power site as much as usual…
As music and well-being are equal facets of who I am, sometimes my music world and healing world meet. At those times, I will update both sites with the same thing as I know a lot of my Resounding Power readers do not follow my music website and vice versa.
It’s interesting to me that this post came up at the time of equinox- that time of year when the hours of light and dark are balanced.
I am striving to be more balanced in my expression of all facets of who I am and hope to get to a place where I will feel able to update both sites often, and to engage with and express all parts of myself in a more balanced way.
In my music, I use various pseudonyms as a way to indicate to listeners the type of music they might expect from each strand. noeverything is the name of the duo I am in, I use Laura Kilty for my songs and covers, LuminouSounds for my Sound Healing music and meditations, and LAIR is my most recent project that is an outlet for my electronic music.
These strands all express different aspects of who I am. So, from time to time, these will overlap and I shuttle between “is this a LAIR, Laura Kilty or LuminouSounds track”? Communion is one of those tracks…
I could have equally released this into the world under my LuminouSounds moniker- I was very much in my ‘other’ world while writing it. As such, I wanted to include a healing element in the video and give a suggestion for how you might engage with the piece if you are interested in connecting to the Sound Healing element within it. (And if not, I hope you just enjoy it as a piece of music!)
The name of the track does literally state the intent- Communion. There are many connotations to the word communion so of course, many directions you could go with it. My suggestion is to use it as an opportunity to spend some time communing with yourself.
Utilise the energy of the Autumnal Equinox to go within, see where you are out of balance and see if you can fully listen to your inner wisdom guiding you on how to return to a place of balance.
1. Commune with your inner world:
Listen on headphones or with the speakers up loud (while taking care to mind your ears!) so you can immerse yourself in the music. Put the video on full screen, relax your eyes and allow the fire to speak to you.
2. If you want to go further into the healing aspect:
Have a pen and paper beside you. Put the video on full screen and on repeat before hitting play. Have the volume up loud on speakers or listen on headphones to allow for immersion (while taking care to mind your ears!).
Take three deep cleansing breaths, allowing your body to relax more on each in breath, and to let go of stress on each out breath.
Hit play, keeping your eyes relaxed, and allow yourself to be taken away by the fire.
When the first play is over, pick up your notebook and without censoring yourself, write down everything that wants to come out. Truly check in with yourself. Check in with that deep inner knowing that can be quieted, or sometimes even muted, by the busy goings on of every day life. You may like to ask-
Where am I holding stress?
Where am I not listening to my wants, needs, desires?
Am I putting my needs first?
Am I the centre of my universe or have I shifted out of balance?
Am I looking after myself- mind, body, spirit?
Am I making equal time for work and play in my life?
Am I spending enough time going within?
Am I taking the time to be in communion with my loved ones?
What do I love about my world?
What do I want to change in my world?
When you have finished streaming your thoughts, offer up gratitude that you have taken action to help yourself find balance. To listen to yourself. To make your needs important.
I am choosing to see the fact this post coincides with the equinox as a positive omen in my attempt to move towards the balance I am aiming to achieve in my life! I hope this exercise brings more balance to your day and helps you to feel calm, peaceful and relaxed.
Sending you all so much love and light,
The Autumnal Equinox is on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 14:21 UTC
