The Six Healing Sounds enhance Therapeutic Work
Everyone has heard stories about gifted beings who possess great healing powers.
People seek out gifted healers. Yet even in the best of circumstances, how much time can a great healer spend with you? One hour a day? An hour a week? What about the rest of the time? Thus, you must learn how to take care of yourself; you must learn how to clear out your negative energy and transform it into positive healthy energy. If you maintain yourself in this way, it will surely enhance any other therapy you are receiving.
The Six Healing Sounds are a simple yet powerful tool to promote physical, energetic, and emotional healing and balance. During the practice of the sound the resting period is very important. Growing the good virtue of the organs is essential so the negative or sick energy has less room to grow.
The sounds are also used to generate certain frequencies for specific healing. Each sound can generate different energy for the healing of the different organs.
Once the movements, sounds and information have been integrated into your practice you can simplify and make the Six Healing Sounds more powerful. For example, when you are settled into the lung sound and you are breathing white healing light and feel the mideyebrow wide open, you put the awareness in the ‘Tan Tien and Universe’. Chi will flow from the universe into the Tan Tien and just the right amount and quality will flow from the Tan Tien into the lungs and large intestine. Just set up the location (the organ) and connect to the universe and the Chi will flow to the correct location!
When doing these, the eyes are open only while making the sound.
Six Healing Sounds – Practice
Associated Organ: Large Intestine
Sound: SSSSSSS (Tongue behind Teeth)
Emotions: Negative – Grief, Sadness, Depression
Positive – Courage, Righteousness, High Self Esteem
Colour: White, Clear, Metallic
Position: Sit in a chair with your back straight and your hands resting palms up on your thighs. Have your feet flat on the floor about a hip’s width apart. Smile down to your lungs and be aware of any sadness, grief, or excess heat in your lungs. Slowly inhale and raise your hands up your centre line with your fingers pointing toward each other. When your hands pass your shoulder level, begin to rotate the palms out as you continue raising your hands up in front of you and above your head with the palms up. Point your fingers towards the fingers of the opposite hand and keep your elbows slightly bent.
Sound: Part your lips slightly, keeping your jaw gently closed. Look up through the space between your two hands and push your palms slightly upward as you slowly exhale and make the sound, « SSSSSSS ». Picture and feel any excess heat, sadness, grief, depression, sickness and dingy white colour expelled and released as you exhale slowly and fully.
Resting Posture: When you have completely exhaled, rotate the palms to face downward with the fingers still pointing toward each other. Slowly lower the palms and bring them just in front of the chest feeling the lung’s aura.
Close your eyes and be aware of your lungs. Smile into your lungs, and as you inhale, imagine that you are breathing in a bright white mist of light. Breathe this light into your lungs and feel it cooling, cleansing, invigorating, healing and refreshing your
lungs. Feel it flowing down to the large intestine to balance the energy of the yin lungs and yang large intestine, allowing the courage quality of your lungs to emerge. Grow more courage, so sadness and depression have less room to grow. With each inbreath, feel yourself drawing in cool fresh energy. With each outbreath, mentally make the Lung Sound and release any remaining sadness or hot energy.
Repeat at least three times. For the first two repetitions, you can make the sound aloud. On the third or last repetition, make the sound sub-vocally (vocalizing the sound so softly that only you can hear it) Repeat six, nine, twelve or twenty-four times to alleviate extreme sadness, depression, colds, flu, toothaches, asthma and emphysema.

Triple Warmer Sound
The Triple Warmer refers to the upper, middle and lower body, and to the distinct metabolic transformations that occur within each area. The Upper Warmer is the area above the diaphragm, where the heart and lungs are located. This area tends to become hot and is responsible for respiration and cardiovascular circulation. The Middle Warmer, the area between the diaphragm and the navel, becomes warm and is where the digestive organs are located. The Lower Warmer, the area below the navel, is responsible for reproduction and elimination and is cool in temperature. The sound « HEEEEEEE » balances the temperatures of the three levels by bringing hot energy down to the lower centre and cold energy up to the higher centres.
Position: Lie on your back with your arms resting palms up at your sides. Keep your eyes closed. Smile. First breathe into the upper part of your lungs to expand the Upper Warmer; then breathe into the middle of the lungs to expand the Middle Warmer; finally, with the last part of your inhalation, expand your lower lungs and fill the Lower Warmer. Breathing in this way creates more space inside for each organ, helping to release and circulate any internal heat or cold.
Sound: Exhale with the sound « HEEEEEEE » sub-vocally, first flattening your chest, then your solar plexus, and finally your lower abdomen. Feel the dark and cloudy colour, cold and chill energy exit from the tips of the fingers.
Resting Posture: Once you have fully exhaled, do not to focus on any emotions or purification process at all. Just let go and relax your body and mind completely.
Repeat at least three times, as with the previous sound. Repeat six, nine, twelve or twenty-four times to alleviate insomnia and stress.
When you have completed the Six Healing Sounds just rest, smile and do nothing.
Regular daily practice of the Six Healing Sounds will help you to keep in touch with the energetic and emotional state of your internal organs. Most importantly do the sounds in the evening before going to sleep. This will help clear out the negative emotions before sleeping, so you can feel that the night’s rest recharges your energy positively. This practice will greatly benefit your personal Cosmic Healing Chi Kung practice. It will help sensitize you to the varieties and differing qualities of Chi. This knowledge will also help you in diagnosing and helping others.
