Use Voice and Sound for Healing

Ten of Swords--Yoga TarotThe Stars--Yoga TarotQuick post today: from the Yoga Tarot, the Ten of Swords and The Stars. Whenever the 10 of Swords appears, from any deck, I am inclined to think that there is healing that needs to be done. These cards offer us two practical suggestions for healing:

  • Rooting/grounding, like the trees on the background of the Ten of Swords card. A simple and effective method for rooting and grounding is to meditate while visualizing that roots are growing from your body into the Earth.
  • Sound. Three options for sound healing occur to me. One is speaking your truth — finding someone to confide in about what’s hurting you, even if “someone” is only your journal. The second is music — I don’t need to tell you how healing music can be, right? The third option is mantras (even something simple like “om”) and affirmations — a surprisingly powerful tool. Try writing your mantras and affirmations if you don’t feel comfortable saying them out loud. Actually, now a fourth option occurs to me–laughter. Watch some stand-up comedy if you have to! Laughter gives you the healing benefits of sound vibrations while also bringing you strongly into your own body in a grounded way. Highly beneficial!
