Preparing for a sound bath means preparing yourself for physical and emotional cleansing and healing. Bringing any emotions or thoughts to your sound bath session can inhibit the healing and cleansing process. Be aware of your thought process and try to avoid distraction in order to fully benefit from the practice.
Being mindful in anticipation for your sound bath will help relax and prepare you for the process of sound healing. On the day of your sound bath, spend your day reading and relaxing.
Some Things to Consider Before Your Sound Bath:
Keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. Sound waves travel better through water. When you are well hydrated, you will have a better experience.
Eat light and healthy food. A sound bath becomes more impactful when you have an empty stomach.
Set your intentions and be positive.
Wear warm, comfortable and flexible clothing.
Try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes prior to your sound bating ceremony.
Bring a yoga mat, pillow, blanket, bolster, anything you need for your comfort
Avoid alcohol prior to a session
Allow without understanding
Surrender to the unknown
During a sound bathing session, everyone will feel intense vibrations surrounding their body. Some will receive those vibrations and feel themselves moving to a meditative state. Others may experience emotional release. Have a clear intention and let go of your stress. Whatever you feel is all good, so let your feelings come and go. Being open in this manner will help you release deep-rooted emotions. You might have moments where you feel very happy or very sad. You might even cry during the session or fall asleep. Whatever happens is fine. Let your emotions flow and accept the release.
