Sound Magic: Sound Bath for the Full Moon in Capricorn July 16th, 2019 

Suggested Tools

  • Crystal: Garnet, particularly Grossular Garnet if you have it
  • Herbs or Essential Oil: Lemongrass
  • Incense: Frankincense and Styrax, particularly Royal Hojari Frankincense

Welcome to our first sound bath meditation! A sound bath, as the name implies, washes the participant in a sea of tones and harmonics used to enhance relaxation and release stress, thus welcoming the benefits that come with reducing these mental barriers. Research has shown that sound waves can decrease anxiety, improve sleep, elevate the mood, and lower blood pressure for the physical body.

You will want to start by preparing a space most comfortable to you by lighting your incense. If you have chosen to use herbs this is a great time to ignite some of them using a cauldron, dish, or charcoal incense burner. If you have chosen essential oils, dab some on your wrists and neck, but be sure they are safe to put directly onto the skin. You can choose to hold the crystal in your hands, place it upon your body, or have it in the space with you. Anything that you feel most comfortable doing is the goal. 

Once your space is readied, sit or lay down and begin the sound bath. In this process you want to try to empty out the mind and allow yourself to be enveloped by the tones and transported outward from your day-to-day mindset. Sometimes it is best to visualize color fields or shapes you associate with these tones to better stamp out mental chatter and to deepen your moment in meditation. Another common technique is to practice breathing techniques, such as inhaling while envisioning violet or white light radiating from the top of your head throughout your body, and exhaling while envisioning your stress and worries dissipating.

Welcome to June, the midpoint check-in of the year and the month of the summer solstice—the longest day of the year on the 21st (also known as Litha to Pagan pals), where we can bask in the sun, ushering in the summer season, where light wins over darkness. We are in the post-eclipse season and Rx energy of May (Mercury stations direct on the 3rd!), so there are less bumps and more flow this month with inner planetary energies...

Welcome to May: Taurus AND eclipse season... This month has big, helpful energy coming in by way of a Jupiter/Pluto sextile on the 3rd, a beautiful transit for positive changes and transformation.
