How are you holding up? The rain, the wind, the shift into a darker season can feel tricky. The grey and cold might be making us feel a little down. Lower in energy and lacking our sparkle.
I wanted to invite you to take a place at one of the sound events coming up, to nurture your body and mind and bolster your immune system.
When you are met with stressful situations, your body protects you by entering into the fight-or-flight mode. During this mode, your sympathetic nervous system is activated, which causes your heart rate and blood pressure to increase, your muscles to constrict, and your digestion to take a break. In this state, the body releases cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline, and a host of hormones that may decrease white blood cells. This process helps you fight or flee from any dangers that you’re encountering. However, at the same time, you can suffer if you stay in that mode for too long, or if you are constantly in and out of fight-or-flight mode.
When we come into a soundbath, and really let go, our whole body, soul and spirit encounters a reset. This goes for our nervous system too.
You unfold and take deep rest. The mind stops firing which in turn, stops the body reacting. We become so lost in the present moment, that the past falls away and fear of the future loosens its grip on us. We get to just be. The vibrations work on a deep cellular level, from relieving tension in the muscles to releasing nitric oxide (which has a huge number of heal benefits but mainly improve blood circulation, focus, and feelings of wellbeing). We get to be with the essence of ourselves, the immediate narrative that drive us become quieter, soften and a more vibrant spirit of ourselves shines through.
