The Healing Power of the Drum for Horses, Pets and Humans [The Power Of Drum Vibrations]
Our world is full of vibration. While in the womb, humans and animals are bathed in all manner of sounds from a mother’s body, most prominent is the soothing rhythm of the heartbeat. Humans and animals are drawn to the healing sounds and vibrations of a beating drum. Vibrations are all around us and flow through us. They are an intrinsic part of all life.
The Proven Healing Ability of the Drum
Scientific research has discovered the profound ability the sound effects of the drum, even for short periods, has on the body and psyche, by inducing an alpha state: brainwaves associated with wellbeing and euphoria. The sound waves from the drum bring harmony and raise the vibratory rate of the recipient’s energy to levels that may allow the body to speed up its innate healing abilities.
The healing energy flows deeper into the recipient’s energy field to bring about deep relaxation, physical, mental, and spiritual stress relief. We now know that stress weakens the immune system and is linked to nearly all diseases. Studies show that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system and produces wellbeing, while ridding the recipient of emotional trauma.
In humans, the positive therapeutic effects on Alzheimer sufferers, recovering addicts, the emotionally disturbed, autism, physical disabilities, migraine, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, asthma, chronic pain and mental illness, has been recorded.
Drumming for Animals
Animals are far more sensitive to sound than we are; even if the sound of the drum is barely audible to us, they will be very aware of its sound and vibration. The drum should, therefore be introduced gradually and delicately. Drumming begins only when the animal has accepted its presence.
Animals are also inquisitive and will often want to sniff the drum. It is important that they are allowed to do this for as long as they need to, to eliminate any nervousness.
The repetitive beat of the drum begins softly and at a suitable distance – for horses, either at the far end of a field or from the outside of a stable. When drumming for smaller animals in their home environment, it is a good idea for the animal to be relaxed in a separate room with the door open. Animals, particularly horses will eventually come closer to enjoy the healing vibrations that the drumming emanates.
Hands on or Distant Heart-Centred Energy Healing can be alternated with short periods of drumming.
