Healing Sounds & Words – Mantras, Psalms and Prayers Spiritual sounds can cause a shift in mindset to heal our mind, body and spirit

When one is suffering from depression or C-PTSD, all one feels like doing is just lying down and shutting the world out. The pain is so intense that nothing seems to ease the torment, at that time instead of turning to drugs and drinks, I suggest that one invests in a pair of headphones and listen to healing sounds.

Believing and having faith in a higher power is what heals us

Many Choices In Sound Healing

The choice is vast and many of the free resources available do work. I can attest that sound does heal. However, as one begins to heal and evolve, one instinctively selects music that is needed for one’s own healing and growth, one may just want to listen to only a particular mantra or prayer. I found that very true for myself. Initially, I resisted following my inner voice to choose music that my spirit was led to pick. For healing to occur it is important we begin honoring our intuitive choices. Listen to your soul and keep an open mind.

Initially, with my Christian background, I was reluctant to try out Hindu or Buddhist mantras but when out of desperation I did reluctantly play the Gayatri Mantra lying in the sun, the transformation I felt was something I could only attribute to listening to the mantra. Since then I have become open to what the universe is offering and willing to try out anything to heal myself.

Psalms For Healing The Soul

Gradually, as I have progressed from a fragmented human being to becoming integrated, I feel a call back to my Christian roots, or maybe the inner need to express what I am actually feeling. The need for words that had meaning, that expressed my inner longing and desires, a cry for consolation, a connection to the God of Ancestors, the feeling that I am sharing my deepest desires and needs, that I am heard, that I am understood.

The book of Psalms has, wisdom for every emotional and spiritual need which when recited or just listened to brings on a sense of calm, instills courage, and gives one hope.

My Favorite Healing Psalm

My current favorite is Psalm 23 The Lord is My Shepherd
The LORD is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in fields of green grass
and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water.
He gives me new strength.
He guides me in the right paths,
as he has promised.
Even if I go through the deepest darkness,
I will not be afraid, LORD, for you are with me.
Your shepherd’s rod and staff protect me.
You prepare a banquet for me,
where all my enemies can see me;
you welcome me as an honored guest
and fill my cup to the brim.
I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life;
and your house will be my home as long as I live.

A beautiful rendition of Psalm 23

In order to heal we need the help of someone. However, sometimes when we are alone and lost with no human helping hand around, our only hope and solace are to turn to the Divine. We need to reach out into the recess of our souls, lifting our eyes with hope and faith.

According to physician Larry Dossey, prayer does work. After practicing medicine for many years, he was stunned to come across scientific evidence of prayer’s healing power!
