Spiritual healing practices come in varying forms, depending on faith or belief systems. Some of these exercises require tools to help you connect with your surroundings, for others you just have to look within. While spiritual healing is intended to strengthen the inner spirit, it turns out that it may also have health-boosting effects. Relying on these methods could impact your mindset and how you feel and improve your body’s healing and functioning.
Here are some spiritual practices that will help you unite with your environment while experiencing health benefits:
A sound bath is a form of meditation that uses sound frequencies to promote harmony, and help relax your mind and help you tap into a heightened sense of awareness and creative abilities. The benefits are similar to acupuncture as the sound frequencies improve the energy flow throughout the body alleviating pain and tension, reducing stress, improving sleep and stimulating organ function.
The sounds used are usually a gong, chimes or percussion materials, singing bowls, a person’s voice, rattles, tuning forks, or soft music. These practices might also include chanting oms and hymns at frequencies that will impact your brain levels.
Your aura is the color-coded electromagnetic levels that surround you like a shield or halo that incorporates your environment and protects you. Therapy methods that target your aura health include light therapy, therapeutic touch, or Tellingtontouch. Aural therapy will impact your physiology as it offers energy or mood balance, which will relax the body and reduce tension or pain in focal areas. It has also been known to help ICU patients and improve sensory perception.
Originating in South America, Ayahuasca is a hallucinogenic tea served in spiritual settings meant to lead to spiritual awakening. Its psychedelic properties cause an out-of-body altered consciousness, and euphoric sensations that have been known to have spiritual and physical health benefits. An ayahuasca journey can lead to improved mental well being, including reduced anxiety, emotional balance, and improved PTSD coping. It has also helped people with addictive disorders.
Cacao ceremonies help you access the depths of soul through cacao. During these ceremonies, people will sit in a circle and pray while music is performed in order to connect and share the same energy frequency as other people in the circle. Cacao has heart-opening principles, mental-clearing qualities to promote meditation, energy, inner peace, and heightened creativity which could improve your physiology as the body enters a relaxed state for improved overall functioning.
If you are interested in promoting your health while elevating your connection with your spirit and the universe, these spiritual healing practices may be the perfect solution for you.
