“Hello, darkness, my old friend.” It may seem like an odd way to start an article about sound but these words were the opening to one of the most iconic songs of the latter half of the twentieth century. It may seem like it would have been better suited as the opening for yesterday’s article about meditation but the silence before the song can be very powerful. It prepares us. It calms us. It provides just enough disorientation that when the sound begins, we are instantly grounded.
Often, in our search to find some calm or peace, we encounter chaos. Instead of heavenly sounds we have nerve-racking noise. While most would agree that a general definition of the word “noise” would be something unpleasant, it is interesting that the word comes from two words that had nothing at all to do with sound in general or…
Our house is up for sale and know it’s sending out the vibe to the future owners to notice and come over and have a look! There are all types of words to use when expressing a feeling or event. I like using vibe because vibration means pressure waves, something making unseen but noticeable motion. Vibrations are usually detected by a variety of our senses. Vibe covers a lot of metaphysical territory and is a sweet hip 60’s retro word too.
Lately, I’ve had a few people tell me that my energy has a good feeling. The compliments have caught me off guard yet have been an indicator to the positive vibes sent out when I’m conducting energy work or just having a casual conversation. With the sale of our first home, it is very important to me to keep up the good vibes within and without the property. My heart sang when my real estate agent said to me this morning, “… the house has a good energy to it…” giving me hope in reaching the next owner though metaphysical means along with the common rituals of selling a house.
The past few months the house has been on the market have been quiet. Our original realtor made a career change prompting us to seek out a new agent. Reflecting on how we have gotten to this day and enjoying the turn of events only promotes the joy I feel. I believe when we are absolutely suppose to be aware of something, it will ring true in a very recognizable way. It was a very good day today and wanted to share in the good vibes!
What followed was about 20 minutes of singing various versions of hallelujah. Sound is a fantastic way to bring things (all inclusive word) to a neutral level of vibration or raises it higher. Since soundis vibration, turning audible waves into sweet and pleasant noises draws others in to hear its beauty. I learned and tested out various pitches while remembering my grammar school choral days for sustainability of a note. The song does not matter as much as the sound, OM and AH seem to be the ones that work the best to balance ones body and space/area. Nope, not going to be appearing on American Idol anytime soon or cut a record or even offer a demo… just not worrying if it’s not good enough, for anyone else to hear. Sing, sing a song.
As I was completing the job I was hired to do, I realized I needed to contact the homeowner and give them some information on the job I was compelled to do. A few paragraphs in an Email aught to do the trick.
“… The other reason for my Email is of a metaphysical one. As you know I tend to “pick up” on various things and always felt when I was cleaning houses I was doing more than wiping down furniture. There is a practice called house clearing were pockets of unbeneficial energy is removed and replaced with love. Kind of like how some houses feel more homey than others or when you go to a house you notice a happier vibe to it, you want to stay and forget about watching the clock counting the minutes till you can leave.
Because of my beliefs I’ve come to understand our homes are a reflection of who we are and what we are personally going through. Including what and who we encounter during our days that may be brought home with us. The point I would like to make is, I did pause during the cleaning of your house today to conduct a form of house clearing. I was getting an uncomfortable feeling and knew that you would benefit from lifting some of the heaviness from your beautiful home.
So, I do hope your house feels better and looks better to you in all aspects 🙂 If you would like to talk more about this, of course I am willing and able. I’m just not sure how much you would like to talk about it or how much you wanted to know but had to bring it to your attention because it was a strong feeling I felt impelled to address it today.”
We have shared a few Emails back and forth since then. They are wonderful people with a home in a lovely part of the state. I hope to talk to them about further protection for the house and wait for that invitation. I won’t push my beliefs on others and am cautious about what I say out loud explaining what I’m feeling or seeing. This stuff isn’t for everyone and I respect that.
