Sound is tool of communication. Vibration is a language that our existence knows and reacts to in ways we may not be conscious to. Understanding this language for healing is a gift we can learn to communicate to our own body and mind. In fact while listening to the subtleties of our own vibration we can determine if we are vibrating in our natural tune or if we are off. Just as tuning forks are used to tune other instruments, they too can help us realign our own vibration.
