World Sound Healing Day – February 14, 2023

World Sound Healing Day, celebrated on February 14 every year, brings people from all around the planet together. They intone the heart sound “AH” for a good few minutes with the intention of radiating love. Did you know that there are several healing sounds, each with different benefits? Yes, healing sounds have been proven to heal our minds and souls. But this is not it, the World Sound Healing Day is much more than people coming together to tone the heart sound. The intention is to create healing vibrations to heal people and our planet.

History of World Sound Healing Day

On World Sound Healing Day, hundreds and thousands of people across the world will be creating healing sounds with a pure intention of love and compassion to send a sonic valentine to the Gaia Matrix — Mother Earth. This is our attempt to raise the consciousness of all sentient beings. In essence, sound healing is a practice that uses the natural vibrations from sounds like vocal instruments, gongs, bowls, and tuning forks to relax your mind and body. Some even claim that healing sounds can even help cure insomnia and anxiety. The science behind these healing sounds is that these vibrations lower blood pressure, improve circulation, reduce respiratory rates, and calm our minds and body.

According to Jonathan Goldman, the founder of World Sound Healing Day, the healing sound can be any vocal sound. This includes ah, hum, om, e.t.c., or any tone like a crystal bowl, Tibetan bell, didgeridoo, or any instrument like the piano, violin, drum, flute, guitar, and Sitar. In fact, any kind of music performance or sonic presentation you would like to make.

This event is not just for sound healers, meditators, and peace activists. All lovers of humanity and sentient consciousness can participate in this event. The time for creating these healing sounds along with other people is at noon at any time zone. The only thing you need to remember is that you’re creating healing sounds for the main goal of achieving harmony and peace on Earth.
