I typed this blog post on my instagram page in February - but here it is again! It is a story so dear to me it needs telling again and again and again...
As I sit here, surrounded by my life neatly tucked away into carefully labelled cardboard boxes, it has made me feel reflective and reminiscent 🌱
I feel the need to tell you about how I ended up here, on my sound healing journey ✨
Wind back the clock to the 9th October 2019. I was a guitar teacher and a wedding singer and my beautiful Nana was in very ill in hospital.
I cancelled my pupils on that Wednesday afternoon, picked up my guitar, jumped into my dads car and we headed up to the hospital.
That afternoon me, mum, dad and my 83-year-old great uncle Colin sang to my beautiful Nana.
We sang all the songs from the Sound Of Music in three part blood harmony as I softly played my guitar. We sang her favourite songs and we sang our favourite songs.
Our voices swelled sweetly down the hospital corridors - tender, tearful & full of love.
Nana had lost all movement at this point - but I could see her soul smiling.
And as we sang we soothed her soul - and it was in this moment I realised that the human voice is the most healing thing in the universe ✨
Our voices didn’t bring my Nana back into full health - but they did surround her with the unconditional love to let her know it was ok for her to pass away...
Our voices held her, soothed her and brought her to a place of peace she had been searching for.
And this is also the moment I realised what healing is.
Healing is finding that place of peace deep in your heart.
We sang to her for hours... and it wasn’t until we had all left - she passed away peacefully in the small hours of the next morning 💛
I truly, truly believe we healed & held her that day with our humble human voices.
Two weeks later I started my sound healing diploma 💛
Love & light,
