A Behind the Scenes Look at One of AcousticSheep's Exclusive Musicians
Vibrational medicine practitioner Jessica Hope
has been dedicated to the art of healing from a young age and is now an accomplished healer, teacher, reiki master and ordained minister. Her first-ever CD release, Transformations, is designed to guide you to a state of deep relaxation or centered creativity utilizing vibrational sound through crystal singing bowls.
Jessica has an extensive background of healing from personal experience as well as specific training in the arts of healing and in helping others heal. Her journey to wellness began at a young age after being afflicted with a rare condition. At 15, she was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system, and was completely paralyzed for several months. Medical professionals anticipated that Jessica would no longer be able to walk or talk as a result of her disease. After two years of extensive rehabilitation, she regained the majority of her speech and motor skills yet struggled with lower intestinal paralysis and severe pain. Ultimately, the extensive road to recovery prompted her to search for alternative healing methods and solidified her commitment to helping others achieve physical and emotional health.
Vibrational medicine or sound therapy is based on the concept that all illness or disease is characterized by a blockage in the body’s energy channels on some level. Practitioners believe that when there is a blockage, the organ in question stops vibrating at a healthy frequency and the disruption can result in some type of illness. These blockages may be broken up, dissolved and released through fluctuations in the wavelengths and pulses of energy.
Jessica's crystal singing bowls are precisely crafted from a high quality sand called silica sand, which is pure quartz crystal. Each bowl is hand-tuned to a note of the diatonic musical scale. When played, the bowl resonates ("sings") its particular note, opening and balancing the corresponding energy channel within the body. The size of the bowl determines its tone and octave (the bigger the bowl, the deeper the tone and the lower the octave).
In scientific terms, at the molecular level, living cells also contain a significant amount of silica which balances electromagnetic energy in the body. Each cell and organ throughout the body vibrates at a measurable frequency that determines their overall health and function. The vibrations emitted by the tones from the crystal bowls act as a tuning fork for the entire body and stimulate cells to vibrate at an optimal rate. Sound therapy can unblock pathways to allow the body to heal and strengthen on its own.
The most important benefit of energy medicine is its potential ability to heal and regenerate the body, mind and spirit. While the overall effect varies from person to person, Jessica indicates that people may experience improved memory, clarity, vitality and the ability to take action. She also states that many individuals report a deep sense of tranquility, sleep more soundly and become more aware of their surroundings.
Transformations is a compilation of healing, release and renewal through the combined modalities of sound with crystal bowls and meditation. Jessica is currently continuing her professional development through accredited university programs in metaphysical and ministerial studies as well as other institutions to fulfill her vision as a prominent healer. AcousticSheep is proud to offer this extraordinary album and honored to collaborate with such a talented individual.
