Scientific research has demonstrated that memory is stored within the body’s cells and may be conscious or subconscious. In health, the subtle energy flows throughout the chakra system to the cells of the body. However, following trauma or an accident etc., there is a reduction in this energetic flow, leading to an imbalance, which can surface as localised pain or discomfort. Specific body positions can also ignite cellular memory, surfacing as physical pain, mental anxiety, or emotional upset.
I have learned a great deal about the release of cellular memory through practising Iyengar Yoga and how specific body positions can ignite memory imprints at the cellular level (see Past Life Cellular Memory Surfacing through Yoga). I enjoyed continuing my research into this work on a visit to the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India.

“There is geometry in the humming of the strings,
there is music in the spacing of the spheres.”
While training in Healing Energies with The Academy of Spiritual Sciences, I bought a small harp and was encouraged by my tutor, Carol Lamb, to teach myself to play intuitively. Although I already played guitar, I had never created music before and wondered how this would happen… However, by practising the Emerald Alignment to align my energy to a higher consciousness prior to playing, the music started coming through. If I started thinking about what I was doing and allow my mind to engage, the musical flow stopped and I would need to align again to reconnect to my intuition. The more I learned to disengage my mind, the longer I could sustain the intuitive connection, enabling the creative music energy to flow through my body and into the strings. I felt as if I was in the audience not knowing what was going to come next. Over time, I became aware of some different musical styles coming through, which led to some musical composition. I also noticed that mood influenced the music – sadness sounded melancholic and happiness sounded bright and uplifting.
“Let them praise his name in the dance:
let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.”
Psalm 149:3, The Bible.
The harp is one of the oldest known stringed musical instruments. Images dating back to 15,000 BC of harp-like instruments have been found in cave paintings in Ariège, Les Trois Frères region of the French Pyrénées. The word ‘harp’ or ‘harpa’ originates from the Anglo-Saxon, Old German and Old Norse words, meaning ‘to pluck’.
The harp has been described as an instrument that creates a bridge between the physical and non-physical worlds.
The Ancient Egyptians revered the harp as a sacred instrument, which guided the soul through transition from the physical life to the afterlife. The Egyptian Pharaoh, Ramses III, had many bow harps painted in his tomb. Continue reading Harp Music Assisting Souls Through Transition
