Why Nature Sounds Help You Relax, According to Science


A walk in the woods—or even a sound machine that plays recordings from nature—can affect heart rate and alter connections in the brain, say researchers.  (Amanda MacMillan April 05, 2017)
You know that feeling of clear-headed calm that washes over you when you listen to water babbling down a stream, or leaves rustling in the wind? Researchers say they’ve pinpointed a scientific explanation for why sounds from nature have such a restorative effect on our psyche: According to a new study, they physically alter the connections in our brains, reducing our body’s natural fight-or-flight instinct.

Natural sounds and green environments have been linked with relaxation and well-being for hundreds of years, of course. But the new research, published in the journal Scientific Reports, is the first to use brain scans, heart-rate monitors, and behavioral experiments to suggest a physiological cause for these effects.

To investigate the connection between the brain, the body, and background noise, researchers at Brighton and Sussex Medical School in England recruited 17 healthy adults to receive functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans while listening to a series of five-minute soundscapes of natural and manmade environments.

During each soundscape, participants also performed a task to measure their attention and reaction time. Their heart rates were monitored as well, to indicate changes in their autonomic nervous systems—the system of organs involved in involuntary processes such as breathing, blood pressure, temperature, metabolism, and digestion.

When they studied the fMRI results, the researchers noticed that activity in the brain’s default mode network—an area involved in mind wandering and “task-free” states of wakefulness—varied depending on the background sounds being played. Specifically, listening to artificial sounds was associated with patterns of inward-focused attention, while nature sounds prompted more external-focused attention.

Inward-focused attention can include worrying and rumination about things specific to one's self—patterns that have been linked to conditions involving psychological stress (including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder). Participants’ reaction times were slower when they listened to artificial sounds compared to natural ones, as well.

Slight differences in heart rate were also detected, indicating a shift in the body’s autonomic nervous system response.  Overall, nature sounds were associated with a decrease in the body’s sympathetic response (which causes that “fight-or-flight” feeling) and an increase in parasympathetic response—the one that helps the body relax and function in normal circumstances, and is sometimes referred to as the “rest-digest” response.

Those results weren’t the same for everyone, though: People who started the study with the highest sympathetic responses (suggesting high levels of stress) registered the biggest relaxation benefits from the nature clips. People who started with low levels of sympathetic response, on the other hand, actually had a slight increase when listening to natural versus artificial sounds.

THE HEALING POWER OF OM CHANTING

Since the beginning of time, humanity has used sound to not only communicate among one another, but to also transform and heal each other and the planet that we call Earth. At one point in time we not only understood our connection with all life, including our Mother Earth, we knew that we were a part of her. We understood that what we did affected the planet and not just on a physical level, but that it was our thoughts changed the vibration of the world around us! The healing power of OM reconnects us to that memory of oneness!! 





Between religious literature and scientific theories there exists a common ground that can be found. Whether it was the spoken word of God that brought life into existence or the Big Bang Theory, there is no doubt that sound is the creative force behind this amazing living and breathing Universe. This creative sound, AUM or OM affects not only on a physical level, but also on an emotional, mental and in subtle levels of our lives – down to the very atoms that make up our beingness!

As a matter of fact, we are in constant vibration. Every molecule that creates our bones, glands, organs – even the blood that flows through our body has it’s own unique vibrational rate. Just as the chakras that govern over each organ, gland and emotion, creating our electromagnetic field or aura will vibrate in harmony to specific areas of the body. These are the points of energy that ultimately create our aura and are just as important to the physical body, in fact, the physical body reflects the health of the aura. The science behind cymatics has proven beyond doubt that sound anywhere near us will create a physical change, and while this change may only be temporary it can be the beginning of very powerful and magical changes within our body!  

When we chant specific mantras we are not only affecting our own energy fields and physical body, we are literally transforming the world around us on a sub-atomic level, changing it’s vibratory rate, increasing the health and well-being of all life. When we chant OM we are connecting into the Primal Sound that created life, that is still vibrating through out eternity giving birth to stars, solar systems and life on our incredible planet! 

OM or AUM actually has three sounds which must be properly enunciated during practice. The first sound “A” represents the beginning (Brahma), the first breath of the infinite energy that became aware of itself. This sound is made by opening the mouth and vibrating the same sound as the “a” in father, in the center of the mouth. This sound creates awareness within our physical body, particularly to the lower chakras. The second sound is “U” and is the sustenance (vishnu) of the physical world, it is the materialization of the void, of nothingness into physical form. This sound transfers the vibration to the back of the throat and is pronounced as the “o” in home. When chanted, this sound connects the physical with the mental, bringing our bodies into awareness of the unconscious world, the world without form. And last but not least, “M” is representative of Shiva, or the integration of Universal Energy into self. It is finished by bringing vibration to the lips, and if done properly there will be a slight buzzing in your third eye chakra. This sound illuminates the deepest levels of our consciousness and our connection to the Divine.

By chanting OM we begin to vibrate within the same frequency, increasing our vibration. This puts us into deeper states of relaxation and consciousness, giving us access to higher realms of existence. You may feel a shift in your vibration and it’s not uncommon to meet with higher dimensional beings, that some may call Angels or Guides.  Chanting AUM on a daily basis will help us become happier, healthier and lighter inside, helping us deal with the stresses of every day life!

Here are 18 benefits to chanting AUM and how it can change your life:

1.     Chanting AUM creates positive vibrations, purifying the environment around us
2.    AUM not only benefits the person chanting it, but everyone within proximity and ultimately the planet as a whole!
3.    It cleanses and heals the aura

5.    Increases concentration
6.    Chanting OM removes toxins from your better, giving you immunity and the ability to heal yourself
7.    It helps you focus on whatever your goals may be.
8.    The AUM chant actually improves your voice by giving strength to vocals cords and the muscles around them
9.    The vibration from AUM is felt through your vocal cords and sinuses, clearing your airways!
10.  The AUM mantra has cardiovascular benefits. Through relaxation of body and mind our blood pressure will decrease and our heart will beat with the regular rhythm
11.   Through meditation and chanting, you will have better control over emotions, allowing you to see situations clearly and rationally.
12.  Regular chanting of AUM will take you on an spiritual journey to greater happiness and positivity. We however need to remember that any mantra will not be an over night fix to your problems – you must have patience and the right technique!
13.  When AUM is chanted in a group the effects are amplified, and will produce powerful positive vibrations that will charge up the entire vicinity
14.  Some people have claimed to lose weight through AUM chanting, as it puts your body in a heightened sense of awareness – it’s vibrations are thought to stimulate your metabolism which can lead to weightloss
15.   It has been experienced that rubbing your hands together while chanting AUM and placing your charged hands on different parts of the body will begin to activate or heal those parts!
16.  When your energy charged hands are placed on your eyes, it can help improve your eyesight
17.   It has been experienced that chanting AUM regularly can help cleanse your skin. The massive levels of positive energy that are happening internally literally affects us from the inside out, affecting our skin, giving us a radiant glow!
18.  Your spinal cord is also strenghtened by the vibration of the sound Aaaaa. Because this sound is generated from the abdomen, it helps strengthen supporting muscles of your spinal cord

WHY CHANTING DEEPENS YOUR YOGA PRACTICE

Chanting deepens the practice of yoga and elevates the consciousness. Chanting is the Yoga of the mind.
Chanting is essentially logging onto the timeless technology of our ancient seers. They devised certain compositions using ancient sounds from the Sanskrit language.

Each Sanskrit letter has a sound, which relates to a specific subtle energy center (chakra) in our subtle bodies. Sanskrit chanting activates subtle energy centers. Sanskrit chants are known to have soothing and healing effects on the human mind and body, leading to calmness.

There is a great benefit in group chanting as well.  As we sit together in one place, we have different thoughts. But, when we start chanting, there is one thought and one rhythm in all our minds. All minds become one. This oneness creates a profound energy that enlivens us.

Chanting, when done in the proper manner, allows all other senses to dissolve into one, and allows the mind to sync into itself. Chanting can be considered as the yoga of the mind.

Tibetan Singing Bowls & Chanting – The ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation

The medical director of the Deepak Chopra center in California, Dr. David Simon, found that the sound from Tibetan Singing Bowls as well as chanting are chemically metabolized into ’endogenous opiates’, that act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.

Sound Healing expert, Diáne Mandle states that Tibetan Singing Bowls don’t only affect a great deal of physical healing but also have far-reaching implications that occur on emotional and spiritual levels. It is a regenerative process married to a spiritual awakening that can have profound consequences on illness, disease, and all aspects of our lives.

Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.

The sounds generated by Tibetan Singing Bowls are a type of energy medicine that promote healing from stress disorders, pain, depression, and most forms of dis-ease.

Healing processes are initiated through entraining our brainwaves to synchronise with the perfect resonance of the bowls. Unique tones create the perfect state for deep meditation, creative thinking and intuitive messages.

The pure sonic waves that ring from Tibetan Singing Bowls wake up our ability to hear with more than our ears. We feel the sound Tibetan Singing Bowls as much as we take it in with our ears.

In fact, mainstream medical teaching facilities like Duke University and the University of North Carolina have added programs that link body, mind and spirit to the treatment of cancer. Cancer prevention centers are utilizing sound as a vital part of the healing process for patients with astounding results.
