Let’s Tone Up and Calm down

10867313-notes-musical-vector-background

Yesterday, I went for a hearing test and not to my surprise, I was told I have a ‘minor’ hearing loss. But I was also told my hearing will never get better than what it is now.  I was grateful for the hearing test but I do believe that our cells can heal.

So I am going to begin a daily program of ‘toning’.  Along with my tuning forks that I offer in my Reiki/Sound sessions, I am adding vocal toning exercises. I have used toning for years but I must admit I have not been consciously toning for awhile.  So I will begin again!  Any kind of spiritual or healing practice takes commitment and time each day. It is easy to get busy and ignore our own self!

Here are a few exercises to begin my toning practices that you may enjoy! I do them as I begin to meditate or sometimes on my morning walk.  Toning helps me to be calm, relaxed and hopefully will stimulate my left and right brain’s communication! Our cells need us to be calm and rested to heal.

Tonal Exercises

1.Stay with the rhythm of your heart and begin to hum…a low hum for a few minutes.  Then sit quietly and when you are ready hum for a few more minutes.

2. Then add a higher hum…then low hum…the higher hum…for a few minutes.  Caution! Your mind will tell you to stop and that this is silly.  Keep toning! What you are doing is getting into the rhythm of your own voice, mind and heart.  This is a tonal exercise and it stimulates all our cells and they respond to it.

3. You can tone the sound…hah…then ah..then ah…hah..  Also make sounds that feel good to you.  Who knows your body, mind and heart better than you.

4 Try out various tones and see what ones feel good for you.  When I meditate, I often ask “What tone do I need today” and I will hear a tone…

5 Try toning a vowel sounds..a,e,i,o,u.   So ‘a’ can tone a short a…ah or a long a vowel …a (says its name).

6. Try low toning sound and move higher to see what feels best.

Toning is Awesome!

Sound toning as you meditate is awesome!  Take some simple steps to remember the tones that your body, mind and spirit like!  Each day do one small thing you like to do.  Listen to music that calms if you are anxious or with a beat if you are feeling down.

There are many tonal exercises but the most simple are the best.  Toning opens the communication between our left brain and right brain.  It stimulates all our cells to vibrate at a higher, healthier vibration.  Over the centuries we have lost our innate healing abilities. I also love drumming and chanting! People have been drumming, chanting and toning from ancient times. Let’s return to the simplicity of our own tones.  Return to simplicity in everything we do.

Enjoy your daily ‘tune up’!

Peacefully, Jane

For years, during my meditation, I have listen to my inner voice. I began to record what I heard and I called them my ‘messages’. The message I am sharing today gave me the title for my book “In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation.” I love it still as it helps me as reminder not to hold on to thoughts, regrets or anger from the past. A good message, especially as I age and desire a time of peace. Allow light and love to embrace and to heal your mind and body each day! Listen ‘in silence’ for your messages to guide you.

The Light shines beyond the shadow
Move gently, my child, with grace
Be peaceful, tranquil, and joyous
Dance in the merriment
Feel your heart song singing
Lifting you to new heights
Discard that which no longer serves

Be still, listen
In peace and serenity
In silence, for messages of love

From In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation

It is a time to let go of the past and receive new thoughts and gifts into your life!  Be who you truly are! Beautiful you!

The full moon is radiating beautiful light to you.full moon 1

Tell me your secret!

Secretly we spoke,

that wise one and me. I said,

Tell me the secrets of the world.

He said, Shhh

Let silence tell you

the secrets of the world

~ Rumi

Explore your inner knowing to discover the ‘secrets of the world’ through daily meditation.  You will be amazed by what is revealed to you when you relax, quiet your mind and listen to your heart.  A wise person once said to me that I already have all the tools…the canvas, the paint and the brushes…to create the world I want.

We also have all the ‘secrets’ within to allow our true being to evolve into a loving, creative and peaceful person.  The world needs each of us to make this transformation.  Allow the wisdom you hear, see or feel during your meditations to assist you in your daily life.

Bring your wisdom and light into the world…don’t keep is a ‘secret’ any longer. Tell me your secret!

Peacefully, Jane

Collectively, we are all experiencing the tragic events that continue to occur around the world. Our hearts break together for all the families who have lost loved ones.  So we all need ways to allow our minds and hearts to heal and to find inner peace. Each of us has the opportunity to shine, in our own ways, to create peace and love around us. We can help each other to ‘stay in love’ with life and have compassion for one another.

I know I am become frustrated by politicians and extremist groups who continue to create havoc.  But when I tap into the beauty of nature, the love of my friends and family, happy memories and songs that I love and take time to reflect and meditate on my blessings, my heart and mind begin to calm.  

The ancient Persian poet Rumi wrote,

The quieter we become, The more we can hear.” Rumi

This reminds me to listen quietly to others and to listen to the wisdom of my heart.  When we truly open to listen, we will hear the birds sing, the frogs croaking, and hear the heart beats of another. Listening creates a powerful, loving presence.

The Peaceful Way

When I look back on my life in reflection, I realize that at times I was wandering aimlessly.  The strange thing is that during these times I felt like I was making good choices and moving forward.  Now I know I was with those who did not understand me and I did not understand them.  They did not understand my search for my ‘self’. I did wander aimlessly until I moved into my heart and began to love my ‘self’…then my life began to have more purpose and meaning. I began to meet people with whom I could “sit under a tree in blossom”…and embrace the light!  I began my Happiness Circles that became my Peaceful Way gatherings and experienced greater peace and love.

Don’t wander aimlessly!
by Rumi

My heart, sit only with those
who know and understand you.
Sit only under a tree
that is full of blossoms.

In the bazaar of herbs and potions
don’t wander aimlessly
find the shop with a potion that is sweet
If you don’t have a measure
people will rob you in no time.
You will take counterfeit coins
thinking they are real.

Don’t fill your bowl with food from
every boiling pot you see.
Not every joke is humorous, so don’t search
for meaning where there isn’t one.
Not every eye can see,
not every sea is full of pearls.

My heart, sing the song of longing
like a nightingale.
The sound of your voice casts a spell
on every stone, on every thorn.
First, lay down your head
then one by one
let go of all distractions.

Embrace the light and let it guide you
beyond the winds of desire.
There you will find a spring, and nourished by it sea waters;
like a tree you will bear fruit forever.

• Ghazal (Ode) 563, from
Rumi’s “Divan-e Shams” (“The Collection of Shams”), by Kolin and
Mafi, and by Professor Arberry:
–Translation by Azima Melita Kolin
and Maryam Mafi
“Rumi: Hidden Music”
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 2001

Meditation provides a space to deepen our awareness of what is best for us. Our heart,  our inner knowing is always within us and we can tap into our inner wisdom. Did you know you are a wisdom keeper? We all have learned so much from all our experiences. We can enter this inner space of self discovery every day…in each moment. Our wisdom is within us awaiting to be awakened.

Going into your silence in meditation will help you to find your life purpose, to create more love in your life as your expand your awareness and allow your divine spirit to guide and love you. Meditation is a spiritual practice. As you become more comfortable and relaxed, it will become natural for you and you will receive many benefits from this spiritual practice.

You will soon flow with more ease through daily life by the spiritual practice of ‘letting go’ in your meditation. This means releasing old patterns of fear and resistance that cause blockages to your success. In meditation, you surrender…let go…and begin to trust your inner guidance.

When you allow only positive, loving thoughts in your consciousness, you will be astounded what will expand and be reflected back to you…abundance of love, prosperity and inner peace.

Here is what I heard in a meditation when I was down, depressed and not sure what to do~

“The Light shines beyond the shadow

Move gently, my child, with grace

Be peaceful, tranquil, and joyous

Dance in merriment

Feel your heart song singing

Lifting you to new heights

Discard that which no longer serves.

Be still, listen

In peace and serenity

In silence, for messages of love.”

It took me awhile to ‘dance in merriment and to feel my heart song singing’, but what these words did for me was to remind me that somewhere inside me was my heart that wanted to be loved. I wanted love…when I realized this truth, I began to take steps to create a life where I could love more fully. And…I did receive many, many messages of love in my meditations, and I found love in my personal life. But this would not have happened if I had turned down my ‘invitation of love’that came from within during my meditations.

I love the words of Sufi poet Hafiz who wrote ~

I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.

Meditation helps us to see the ‘astonishing light’ of our own being, the way of our heart.

In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation can assist you to move deeply into your creativity, self-love and wisdom.

Peacefully, Jane
