Sound Exhaustion:

by Carole Bourne


“Notice the quality of your sound life”

Call it what you like. Sound fatigue. Sound trauma. Sound exhaustion. Sound sensitivity.

Our sense of sound is often an abused sensory organ.

Sound agitations are everywhere. Noise distractions are constant. Mindless listening is epidemic. The depleting fraying effects on our nervous system, mind and vibrational frequency are many.

Sound trauma is real for many gorgeous souls. It lingers silently in our nervous system.

So today I write and suggest you may like to pause, exhale a releasing sigh and spend a few moments tuning into the quality of your sound life.  It’s certainly what I’ve been doing lately, so no surprises I’m writing about it today.

Notice if your thinking has become hard, scattered or restless from the overwhelm of constant noise pollution around you?  Literally no space to think.

Is your nervous system stuck on high alert, wired for stress from the constant harassment of noise stimulation? It’s everywhere.

Does your nervous system hold noise trauma from harsh or demanding words either directed at you or around you?  Demanding people. Angry people. Word abuse.

Have your ear chakra’s become dimmed by the never ending pulse of urban commotion and the constant chatter of your own thoughts. Drowning out the very voice of your soul, guidance from the universe.  Intuitive listening lost.

I share a few simple sound healing practices below that might resonate with you.  But really we are all unique.  Above all else, listen to your body and listen to your sense of sound. One or both will know the next right step towards restoring harmony and pleasure to the alchemy of your hearing. Trust in your inner sounds.

Healing practices:

Rewire your sense of hearing and repair a damaged nervous system with sound medicine that soul speaks.

  • Rest your ears on silence.
  • Rest your ears on the sound of your own breath.
  • Rest your ears on the sound of nature. A true healing tonic.
  • Rest your ears on the sound of a healing mantra. Gobinda Hari Hari is my favourite at the moment.
  • Rest your ears and eyes on a flickering flame.
  • Clear ear tension. Read my weekly ritual for this beautiful healing practice.

Find your quiet place. Your sound sanctuary. Visit there often.

Slowly, slowly over time you will begin to dissolve the imprint of sound trauma and agitations that have lodge in the memory of your body and nervous system. You might also like to revisit and previous blog post therapeutic ear massages.

As always, be your own medicine, one breath, one pause and one healing ritual at a time time.  

May the  medicine in you rise my friend. xox  Carole

Claim Your Light Space:

by Carole Bourne


“Sniff your wisdom-nose. Get clear. Then decide” Rumi

Hello my sweet friend, thought I’d let you know I’ve been sharing some beautiful healing rituals of late over on my blog.  I post a new ritual each week.  Yes, I’ve found my weekly ritual writing groove again.

Quite a few of the weekly rituals I share on facebook and some I feel strongly guided to share as a blog post, like today.

They are healing rituals that move through me and fill my belly with big truth.  They are rituals that shine light. Rituals I learnt many moons ago. Ancient rituals I’d long forgotten. Rituals that choose to birth through me. Rituals I deeply trust. They are rituals longing to be held.  Rituals for self-healing. Rituals steeped in big medicine. Sometimes they are rituals written only for one person – perhaps you.

In truth, I am a ritual keeper.

So below is a little healing ritual I shared recently.  It’s a lift your vibration kinda ritual. Have a read and notice how it bubbles in your belly and speaks to your heart.  It came up strongly for many gorgeous souls all around the world, in my last full moon releasing circle.

If you feel inclined click here to read this week’s healing ritual – reset your feminine frequencies (I happen to think it’s epic).

Claim Your Light Space:

Craft a circle of light around you  Call in the light.

Breathe the light through you.  Move the light through you. 

Claim your light space. 

Claim your light space to keep your frequency clear.

Claim your light space to leave light trails wherever you go.

Claim your light space to stay connected to an energy source greater than yourself.

Healing practice:

Form an energy circle, either in your minds eyes or on the earth with four to eight clear quartz crystals.  

Step into the centre of the energy circle. A living breathing spiralling vortex of clear white light.

Sense your authentic connection to the light.

Feel a continuous shower of light rays stream through you. Surround you. Cocoon you in brilliant white light.

Breathe the light deep through your body – blood stream – bones – cells.

Re-claim strong light boundaries around you.

Plug yourself into the light. Fiercely claim your light space. 

Practice daily or whenever you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, come back to this healing ritual and reconnect to your light.

May the medicine in you rise.  xox  Carole
