Cannabliss - Words of wellness
Words are very powerful tools that can uplift energy, though we’re often not conscious of the words we speak, read, and consume. Others’ words affect our personal vibration, which you’ll relate to if you’ve spent time with a chronic complainer. Words have a lot of power, so choose them (and your friends) wisely!
Words can make a day or break a heart. And it’s not just our outer voice that can do this. Our inner voice is just as powerful, with negative self-talk linked to mental health conditions like anxiety and depression. If we knew just how powerful our words are, we’d be more careful about the ones we use, both to ourselves and to others.
But we can also harness the power of words to have a more positive impact. The sound of words consists of vibration, and these vibrations help to create the reality around us. Without words, a thought can never become a reality. Harnessing the power of words could shape a more positive reality right now.
I speak therefore I am
The words ‘I am’ are more than just a statement about our essential state of being. These two small but incredibly powerful words are an energetic tool. Because what comes after them defines who we are to ourselves and to everyone around us. Saying affirmations like ‘I am loved’, ‘I am grateful’, ‘I am healthy’, and ‘I am beautiful’ can have a huge impact on our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. Which affects not just us, but the people around us as well. So starting each morning with a positive affirmation using the magical words - ‘I am’ - is a higher expression for yourself that could change your energy, and maybe even change your life.
Tone of voice
It’s not just about the things we say. The way we say things has an effect too. Tone of voice is a vehicle for emotion, and how we express the words we speak can alter how they’re received and felt. Things like the volume, speed, clarity, projection of our voice can change the meaning, giving both verbal and nonverbal cues. The nonverbal part is harder to control, but is also more genuine.
Even when listening to a conversation in a foreign language, you can somehow get the gist without understanding the specific words. How someone speaks and the way they use their voice says more than just the words being said. Vocal tone gives unconscious clues which make us think in certain ways. For example deeper voices imply maturity and make us feel more trust, which is why you often hear deeper voices used in advertising.
All living things have a frequency. All objects have a frequency. Sounds are frequency. In fact, anything you can see, taste, touch, feel or hear has a frequency. And some sound frequencies are known to resonate particularly well with the human body. Spoken words, gratitude, affirmations, chanting, singing and immersive sound bowl therapies all deliver a sound vibration that hits us sonically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Tone of voice in meditation
When we think of meditation we often think of sitting in silence, but guided meditations are a popular choice for many of us and it’s important to consider how words and voice affect our practice.
Guided meditation is led by a teacher, and is the best way to begin when starting out with meditation. Just like learning any skill in life, having a helping hand to guide the way is very useful. When it comes to exploring the intricacies of the mind, a guiding voice can help you to think of things in new ways, and give reassurance on a deeper level.
We love blending spoken words with aromatherapy, applying a few drops of beauty oil to the forehead, temples, back of the neck, wrists (or any other pressure points) before starting Mairead’s Beauty & Wellness Experience meditation. The blend of essential oils can help to bring balance and grounding, which compliments Mairaid’s soothing words and voice.
Singing sound bowls
The wellbeing benefits of using your voice, and in particular, singing, are well known. Singing has been shown to reduce stress, stimulate the brain and boost cardiovascular health. But it isn’t only our voice that can sing.
Sound bowls have been a growing wellness trend, with these tuneful bowls helping us get back in tune with ourselves. The vibration of the sound resonates with our chakra centres, promoting a natural state of wholeness. Singing bowls have been used as far back as the 12th century, and are believed to calm and repair the mind, reduce stress, improve circulation, and alleviate aches and pains.
Listening to the Beauty & Wellness Experience crystal sound bath daily or nightly helps promote relaxation, increase clarity and release tension. And for an added boost, rub 2-3 drops of beauty oil between your palms and breath in the soothing aroma to compliment your sound bowl experience. Enjoy blissful smells with your blissful sounds!
