My Healing Journey with Sound by Professor Jeralyn Glass
Published: Monday, 07 October 2019
I have always been acutely aware of the healing power of music, especially the vibrational power inherent in the human voice. Music is the universal means of expression, the language of humanity, and our voice, the most personal instrument of all connects us to our hearts. I have been blessed to spend my life in the performing arts enjoying an international career as a singer and teacher. It is a great privilege and joy to share my music and mastery, guiding my students and clients in discovering and opening their true, authentic voice and their unique soul signature sound and expression.
In 2008, between engagements singing Mozart, Beethoven and Verdi, I discovered Crystal Tones Alchemy Singing bowls and was dazzled by their exquisite sounds. I always loved the Himalayan singing bowls, but these were very different. I bought a set of seven, one for each chakra, and began to explore. I experimented. I used them to open blockages, relieve stress and create balance and harmony for myself, my family and my students. When a student had a vocal blockage, I would ask them to choose a bowl and tone or sing with it. Their blockage would dissipate. I loved the soulful intimacy and long lingering sense of peace from the sounds. Magical. My young son loved them too. ‘Mommy,’ he would say as I tucked him into bed, ‘please give me my sound blanket!’ And I would play. And he would drop into a deep sleep.
In 2006, I was moved to create a children’s foundation in Germany where I was living and working. The goal of the Kids4kids World Foundation was to train young people in the performing arts and instill in them the power of teamwork and service at a young age. Every year our original productions raised over 25,000€ to support the music therapy program which we co created, serving hundreds of children and their families throughout Germany.
Our performers often participated in a national music contest, and when my son was thirteen, he made it to the semifinals of the singing competition. One week before his audition, he came into the room with a grimace on his face. “mom, listen, my voice!” It had begun to drop in register! At that point in my teaching career, I had not yet guided a boy through his voice change. I trusted my intuition and knowledge about healthy singing. We worked with the crystal alchemy bowls every day. He chose the little citrine G note. He gently toned and hummed with it. And his voice remained open. We lowered his keys by a fourth, and a week later he sang his 15-minute program brilliantly. The citrine anchored a security that was miraculous at that vulnerable time.
“My name his Dylan”, he said with great confidence “and since last week, I am no longer a soprano!” Everyone laughed. He was thrilled.
Fast forward 6 years later.
On March 27, 2015, my life changed forever when I lost him, dearest Dylan, my only child, my beloved 19-year-old son. I never imagined one day music would be my emotional stability through such an unimaginable loss. I am traversing a journey of profound grief, and music is the stabilizing container embracing and transforming that anguish. I am navigating the intensity of the feelings supported by the vibrations of the Crystal Tones Alchemy Singing Bowls. When I am frozen in the depths of despair and overwhelmed by loss, the pure crystalline emanations in combination with breathwork anchor and transmute. Their incredible beauty, the pristine, sacred vibrations of their tones soothes, comforts and take me instantly to my son. A profound and tender connection ever present through the heavenly frequencies. The bodily felt sensation of pure Love. Eternal. Heaven/Earth. The luminescent pathways created are indescribable, transforming the darkness to radiance. Morphing the grief to love, acceptance, gratitude and joy. Understanding it is all perfect. A journey of healing, of release, of receiving; a journey of heart, soul, and love eternal.
My transformational journey with sound vibration and energy medicine has been nothing short of phenomenal. My son began communicating with me the night he died, sending me a whoosh of sound vibration in a shooting star, guiding me, holding me, bringing joy and fulfillment in ways I had never thought would ever be possible. Five months after his passing, I was struggling. He said, “Mom, call the bowl dudes” I ignored him, and he insisted. “Call the bowl dudes”. I did. And my life path changed. With his guidance, I created Crystal Cadence, A place for Song and Sound Healing and home of the Crystal Tones Los Angeles Temple where 400 bowls are available for purchase. I travel the world teaching healing sound, leading meditations and giving concerts. I work regularly with cancer patients and train alchemy sound healers. We learn bowl playing techniques, we study the notes of the chakra and endocrine system, we train in bioenergetics, we do improvisational exercises and activate our human instrument. In 2018, Dylan suggested we present an online series called “The Sacred Science of Sound.” Jonathan Goldman spoke, Eileen Mckusick, Barry Goldstein, Lee Harris, Dr. Daniel Levitin, Deva Premal and Miten, Gregg Braden, Anita Moorjani and Dr. Sue Morter too. People all around the globe listened. And they asked for a live event.
