Hello, it’s been a while since I sent out a blog. I’m hoping the new year has been a happy and healthy one for you and your family. Spring is here for the northern hemisphere and I have been coming across numerous studies finding more profound results that sound, color, lights have healing effects on our body.
The latest out there is from MIT. Where the test subjects were mice and the researchers placed strobe light affects and sound at different variables finding profound results. These mice had similar problems that exist in Alzheimer’s patients. After concluding the tests; their findings were mind boggling. Now we both know mice and humans minds are different; but this test was so significant that now they are wanting to test people immediately.
Why this study holds a special place in my heart; my father had Alzheimer’s and the years before he passed, it was such a truly devastating thing to go through watching a man that to me was a genius, such a beautiful heart- become so lost that he just looked at you wishing he could just make contact with you. It felt like he was in another time line or dimension; right in front of you, but on the other side of the universe.
These are some parts of the article I came across...
"When we combine visual and auditory stimulation for a week, we see the engagement of the prefrontal cortex and a very dramatic reduction of amyloid," says Li-Huei Tsai, one of the researchers from MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory.
It's not the first study to investigate the role sound can play in clearing the brain of the tangles and clumps of tau and amyloid proteins at least partially responsible for the disease.”
“Previous studies showed bursts of ultrasound make blood vessels leaky enough to allow powerful treatments to slip into the brain, while also encouraging the nervous system's waste-removal experts, microglia, to pick up the pace.
Several years ago, Tsai discovered light flickering at a frequency of about 40 flashes a second had similar benefits in mice engineered to build up amyloid in their brain's nerve cells.
The result was so mind-boggling and so robust, it took a while for the idea to sink in, but we knew we needed to work out a way of trying out the same thing in humans," Tsai told Helen Thomson at Nature at the time.”
“Instead of the high pitched scream of ultrasound, Tsui used a much lower droning noise of just 40 Hertz, a sound only just high enough for humans to hear.
Exposing their mouse subjects to just one hour of this monotonous buzz every day for a week led to a significant drop in the amount of amyloid build up in the auditory regions, while also stimulating those microglial cells and blood vessels.
"What we have demonstrated here is that we can use a totally different sensory modality to induce gamma oscillations in the brain," says Tsai.”
“As an added bonus, it also helped clear the nearby hippocampus – an important section associated with memory.
The effects weren't just evident in the test subjects' brain chemistry. Functionally, mice exposed to the treatment performed better in a range of cognitive tasks.
Adding the light therapy from the previous study saw an even more dramatic effect, clearing plaques in a number of areas across the brain, including in the prefrontal cortex. Those trash-clearing microglia also went to town.
"These microglia just pile on top of one another around the plaques," says Tsai.
Discovering new mechanisms in the way nervous systems clear waste and synchronise activity is a huge step forward in the development of treatments for all kinds of neurological disorders.
Translating discoveries like this to human brains will take more work, especially when there are potential contrasts in how gamma waves appear in mice and human Alzheimer's brains.
So far early testing for safety has shown the process seems to have no clear side effects.”

Now I would like to tie in what I do; that I continue to find and experience with my own clients, concert participants and even attuning my reiki students (my students during their attunements-go deeply into a meditative state with my crystal bowls, music and reiki (some - up to three hours). There is such a dynamic expansion of what truly this form of therapy not just accomplishes, but how truly diverse sound, energy and light “medicine” works on the total body complex.
Not just the physical body itself, but on the fifty trillion cells and the energy body (auric-etheric field).
Now, when I learned reiki and teach it; we use light also to provide that healing to our clients. I have had over 95% (combined) of my clients and concert participants experience colors, lights flowing not just visually in their mind, but throughout their body, spine and around their energy body.
We are taught that (such thing as the chakras) which are true energy centers located on the spine - are constant. Meaning, that the colors associated with each one never moves; which is furthest from the truth. When the body is starving for balance-it tries to find any resource to bring that peace and freedom to the cells, neurons and all the sensory stimuli.
When I perform a concert or session with my crystal bowls, music and reiki. All those pulses and vibrations expand - opening the vast highway of flow; that flow dilates the blood vessels, the energies of the spine in alignment, spinal cord vibratory systems and the truly diverse systems of the miracle...we should call ourselves.
We are made of light, sound, energy and the vibrations and tones that are beyond the small portion of our brain we use here. In reality; we are truly diverse, connected and expansive by our own divine true nature. Even if we are simply speak about the make up of our physical body; which is made of 80% water combined: 70% outer core and 90% blood. My SST program works brilliantly to balance those wave lengths of the water of the body. Dr. Masaru Emoto proved that our thoughts, words, actions and even music and tones affect the molecules of water significantly. Negative affects - the water was dark, the shapes within the water molecules were rigid and scattered. Positive affects - the water was shimmering with color, bright and the molecules were showcasing beautiful symmetry of shapes that were truly diverse and amazing.
This is where finally science and the medical world and now even religion is waking up and understanding that this is our true nature. Our ancestors not just knew this; they were profound healers and knew how we and everything is connected. All to help one another out. It’s right in front of us. It’s, to be perfectly honest; is us-within us! Always has been; we keep searching outward and it always has been within us. That’s where my SST program goes to the source to clear out exactly what you personally need. One day I know that we will evolve to simply live in that arena of our true essence and nature. Holistic approaches and even medicine will not be needed. But until then; both are.
One thing I wish, I would of opened myself to this knowledge sooner. I would of helped my father not suffer like he did. I would of been able to help him not just with Alzheimer’s, but his cancer; his pain and when that day came-crossing over.
The gift is; I’m now helping my Mom who has many health problems of her own and due to her age; those ailments are trying to cause havoc on her. I have helped with her Parkinson’s (slow the progress significantly), her pain and keep her cancer at bay. I helped her also with my fathers passing and the truly deep sadness she would of fell into. I also have helped her with the larger picture of life, her life path and the connections she know embraces with her higher souls energy. Another huge aspect; we both have grown into best friends, where at one time, we were not that close.
It’s so odd to me now, that we are on one earth; yet the East has always known this and uses these approaches like breathing. Yet, here in the West (especially the United States) just now waking up to embrace the significances of these truly powerful and amazing ways of healing approaches!
Reiki, Sound Therapy (Sustained Sound Therapy) help with any situation. Know matter the age, the circumstances and can help on a spiritual, emotional, physical, etheric and even from an ancestral ties. Those circumstances that one has chosen on a soul level to carry the load of the families burdens. Many now are releasing that or at least trying during this time period. I’ll go further in detail with this on the next blog.
I’m hoping you received a lot from this blog. There is no reason today to go through life in pain, hold onto anything or feel like you’re alone and have nowhere to turn. Call me, text me or email me. I can help.
Please enjoy this wonderful time of year of growth and love! I’m hoping you and your families and friends are doing wonderful and feeling amazing! Thank you always for taking the time to read my blogs and for using my services. I love what I do and I’m always here for you!
Have a wonderful Easter if you celebrate it and all the wonderful holidays that are coming up! We made it through winter; it’s definitely a time to celebrate and go out in nature and embrace the sun, the warmth and the beautiful weather.
Many blessings, Namaste,
