Body Song: Utilizing the Power of Sound, Music and Vibration for Brain Injury via the Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls

image026Recently I had the privilege to be a guest blogger at TheBrainFairy.com, speaking about sound healing and the brain.  They also mentioned my album, Dawn Mountain in another posting about Music as a Healing Tool After Brain Injury.

I wanted to share my blog post in its entirety as well, as it is based on a lot of the foundation of my work with Sound Healing.

“I call utilizing sound in a session a “sonic massage.” The sound literally goes through the entire body.  You can literally feel the sound going all the way through.  That is the vibration.  With a regular massage, we bump up against muscles and other tissues.  The sound and vibration are carried by something called the essentic wave.  It is similar to how massage works.  This “wave” works through touch and sound, which is why when we receive a Swedish massage our brain states slow.  It is the same with a “sonic” massage.”

Mik’ael reviewed by Michael Diamond

Mik’ael reviewed by Michael Diamond

I am so thrilled to have my latest album, Mik’ael, reviewed by New Age reviewer Michael Diamond!

Here’s part of what he had to say:

“MIK’AEL is at once worldly and otherworldly as it blends earthy instruments with heavenly vocals to create a listening experience that is both meditative and moving. This is music that was created with great intention and purpose…With MIK’AEL, Leigh Ann Phillips has created a transportive sonic journey that is sure to stir the imagination and inspire the Spirit.”

Leigh Ann

Mik’ael album is here!

I’m happy to announce that my newest album, Mik’ael, is now available!! Mik’ael is an album of soothing soulful vocal mantras, accompanied by world instruments and quartz crystal singing bowls. It is a musical offering to the Archangel Mik’ael (Michael), sung in Enochian, which some call the language of the angels.

Recorded at Zenden Studios in California, Mik’ael is co-written and co-produced by Thomas Barquee.

What others are saying about Mik’ael:

Profound Love
Breathtaking Beauty, and
Eternal Tranquility

-Megumi Sugihara, Crestone, CO

As I listen to Leigh Ann’s CD ‘Mik’ael’ I feel my heart expand and a clear sense of love begins to arise. This is powerful music which I know will help all of us make a shift into a larger sense of who we are and what is possible.

-Sheila Ramsey

Leigh Ann’s latest CD is a compilation of hauntingly beautiful songs of tones, rhythms, and beautiful lyrics. I put this on repeat for a mini- spiritual spa in my day! A refreshing energizer!

The Sound is Still Assisting!

I have the honor of traveling to many different places, meeting people from all walks of life, sharing the healing power of sound and the crystal bowls.  Here’s something that my dear friend Pegi Jodry shared with me just the other day.

“I spoke with the guard to whom you gave your CD at our museum.    He wanted me to let you know that he still listens to your CD every day during his commute and that it allows him to let go of the stresses of his work day and traffic.  How great is that?!
