music to heal
Being an empath and having C-PTSD due to not only the way I was raised, but also through several highly-abusive relationships, gives me a sensitivity and understanding of human nature not normal to modern society.
Music was, at the outset, a way for me to bleed-off some of the intensity I would experience in life, so that I could process my feelings and gain perspective. As I began to share my music, people would comment on my voice, and the fact that they would get goosebumps when I sang. My voice (untrained and problematic) was somehow able to produce frequencies that folks experienced as powerful, down to the bone.
During the majority of my twenties I was in a band of some kind, performing regularly at clubs and venues around the San Francisco Bay Area. There was one group in particular that had a second female lead vocalist, and when we sang together our voices would produce overtones that people found beautiful.
We were never able to produce that effect in the studio.
What I have been able to do is layer my music with other modalities to facilitate healing of the psyche. These may be binaural beats, isochronic tones, healing frequency work, audio sigils, or magickal wordplay—or one or more of these, depending on what I’m trying to do.
My purpose is both to reach out to the world to communicate my feelings, as well as healing the world through music and words.
