In this drumming induced altered state, they become a clear channel for healing energy. Shamans typically carry the same beat, sometimes for hours, to attain the altered state they desire.
Drumming can mimic the heartbeat, encouraging the body to stabilize; it can be slow and soothing or intense and cleansing. Drumming has been shown to calm, focus and heal such diverse issues as Alzheimer’s, autistic children, stroke and Parkinson’s disease. Drumming induces deep relaxation, lowers blood pressure and reduces stress. Drumming promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, the bodies’ own painkiller thereby helping to control pain.
The physical stimulation of drumming releases negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma. Sound vibrations resonate through the cells stimulating release of negative cellular memories whether from this life or a past life. Drumming allows the body to relax and stabilize the heartbeat enhancing the flow of Reiki’s healing energy.
Reiki drumming may assist in your wellness on all levels: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
