Today we're far more familiar with the concepts of sounds, sound waves
and the constantly vibrating state of all matter in the universe. We use
ultra sound waves to look inside the human body, destroy gall and
kidney stones, as well as search for oil and to unlock other secrets
deep within the earth.
So what does this have to do with healing
the body? Everything. In Chinese medicine there are so many fantastic
methods to heal and cure that are little known today. One of these
ancient healing methods is known as "The Six Healing sounds" or "The Six
The first three of these sounds were "SSSSSS",
"WUUUUUU" and "SHHHHH" for the lungs, kidneys and liver, respectively.
Next we're going to cover the last three sounds for the heart, spleen
and an important energy balancing system known as the Triple Burner.
The Sounds1) The Heart.
To perform the heart sound, we are going to first take a few deep
breaths, then close the eyes and become aware of the heart. After a few
breaths you can begin making the heart sound by tilting the head back
and while looking up, open the mouth and make the sound HAWWWWWWWWWWWW
Take a short rest between each repetition by
taking a few normal breaths and, keeping the eyes closed, visualize a
bright red color along with the qualities of joy, sincerity, honor and
creativity coming into the heart with each inhalation. This is an
important step, so do not skip it.
Practice the heart sound 3-6
times. If you have a sore throat, cold sores, swollen gum's or tongue,
heart disease, heart pains, to detoxify the heart or you are
experiencing moodiness or jumpiness, then perform this exercise from 9
to 36 times.
2) The Spleen. To perform the spleen sound,
take a deep breath, then exhale and make the sound WHOOOOOOOOOO. Inhale
and breathe deeply into the spleen, pancreas and stomach while imagining
a bright yellow light with the qualities of fairness, compassion and
musical creation entering them. Repeat this sound 3 to 6 times.
you are experiencing indigestion, nausea, diarrhea or wish to detoxify
the spleen, then perform this sound 9 to 36 times. This sound is more
effective and healthier than using antacids. This is the only sound that
can be done immediately after eating.
3) The Triple Burner.
The sound for the triple burner is a very simple one. It is the same as
the word "He" but the "e" sound is extended for the duration of the
breath. The triple burner sound is HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. As with the
other sounds this sound should be made very softly or "sub vocally"
meaning you only need to breathe out and open your mouth as though
making the sound, but without making a sound or vibrating the vocal
chords. This sound can help to regulate the heartbeat and is often used
by Chinese martial artists to help slow down the heartbeat either during
or after a fight or any other strenuous exercise.
This sound can
also be used to help with insomnia. You can make it from 3 to 9 times
per set, and repeat each set several times if needed to help slow the
heart and calm the entire system down.
