I experienced tuning forks before once, and it was pretty amazing. It was actually my friend’s idea and I just tagged along.
When we got there, I had no idea what to expect but I was looking forward to a new experience. After all, I do think that sound has a lot of influence on us. We went to a sound therapist and the area was so relaxing. It puts you in a vibe that makes you want to just feel serenity.
It was one of the moments when I realized that I never had a break—that kind of break when you just look inward and care for yourself. I considered my impromptu visit at the therapist a blessing in disguise.
The lady came in and I could already feel her powerful and loving presence in the room. She felt like a cozy rainy afternoon when everything is just quiet and peaceful. We were instructed to stay seated on the cushion on the floor and she told us about the session. I was so excited to get started because I was already comfortable and I loved just sitting there and taking all in the peaceful aura that was in the room.
Then she started playing an instrument… I had my eyes closed so I couldn’t see but I took a peek. It is a tuning fork! I’ve heard about those!
The tones that the tuning forks produced were beautiful. It was new to me but I felt it vibrating through my body. I felt exhilarated. The woman talked about how the sounds of the tuning fork can work with the body’s aura and I really felt the energy field surrounding my body as it matches the rhythm of the tones.
It was an amazing experience and I never thought I could have my eyes closed and immerse myself in pure tones alone for that period. It was so relaxing that after the session, I felt some of the heaviness and stress in my life were released. I felt light and just calm.
So, I talked to the woman after the session and she said I could always do it at home. She was so nice to show me how to play it, which was pretty easy, and she also said that I should research more when I get home because there are plenty of videos and tips that I can get from the internet.
After that experience, I knew I have to get myself one. However, I didn’t get one right away. Instead, I went to a couple of sessions because I felt like I couldn’t bring myself to do it on my own.
However, I couldn’t always find a spot in her schedule and my schedule would always clash with her free times. So, I decided to try it on my own. That was a time in my life when I was so stressed out.
So, I purchased a tuning fork and since I already know how it’s played, I just mimicked it until I produced a tone that is soothing to me.
It was kind of surprising that I felt even more relaxed. The feeling of being in control of the tone production was amazing, and of course, the fact that I can do it on my own was a huge plus. Since I get fidgety, especially when seated for a long time (which is why I couldn’t make meditation happen!), it was nice to have something to do while I bask in the beauty of the tones produced by the tuning forks.
It helped me focus more and it was kind of meditation practice, but this one I use sounds. It was amazing and I’m glad that I purchased my own. Now, I can do it anytime I want.
