Now that we’ve gained some insight into sound healing tools let’s dive into my journey with Ceciley Slocum, a certified sound therapy practitioner from Mystical Alchemy Medicine. Over nine months, I had the privilege of experiencing the profound effects of sound healing firsthand.
My sound healing journey with Ceciley was nothing short of exceptional, so soothing and yummy. The sessions were a delightful blend of relaxation and deep sound resonance.
Walking into the room, you feel like you’ve entered your little spa experience. Her sound healing room is beautifully appointed with old pine antiques, beautiful scents, gemstones, crystals, a wide variety of tuning forks for healing, crystal bowls, singing bowls, and chimes. As a Shamanic Practitioner as well, Ceciley is equipped with Shamanic Drums, beaded rain sticks, smudging bundles, palo santo, and a giant (what I assume is) eagle feather OMG! When Ceciley washed over my body with the eagle feather!?!).
My sound healing sessions began with lying on a table with a warm heated blanket and a cover on my eyes.
She typically started a sound therapy session with tuning forks but would follow her intuition as she felt guided to pick up other tools like crystal bowls, the beaded rain stick, or chimes. The vibrations from various sounds penetrated every cell of my body, gently coaxing away stress and tension. When she worked on the chakra centers, I could feel them spinning like a subtle sound massage. With each passing moment, I felt myself surrendering to the soothing sounds, and my mind entered a calm state.
Sometimes Cecily would discuss what she was working on or “untangling” in my energy field. There was one session where she worked on the “Ancestral Rivers” on my mother’s side. (I created a video about inheriting “trapped emotions” from our ancestors. I have also interviewed Shamanic Practitioners familiar with ancestral healing.)
Throughout the nine months of sessions, I noticed shifts in my consciousness and overall well-being. If nothing else…these sound healing sessions were better than an excellent massage for me. It’s a self-care practice.
I want to continue for the rest of my life. They’re THAT YUMMY!
