Sound Bath and Art by Jeff Swearengin
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.

Fire was domesticated about one million years ago, and we’ve been learning to harness it responsibly ever since. It destroys, yes. It creates, yes? Well, it creates warmth, light, power, and propulsion via it’s living act of combustion. One could say that what fire does to a flammable earth element is equal to what humans do to the...
