See my cat enjoying the sound vibrations of the drum.

Posted by PicasaI have a remarkable cat. You would never know that as a rescue cat it took us almost 4 months to bond. Now my friends come to see the cat even if I am not home. It seems that every time I went away and someone offered to take care of him, I would come home to cat who was even more mellow and sweet. Not shy of people; he is also not a pest so even non-cat lovers tolerate him.
He senses when it is my turn on the Reiki table and comes in to watch. He is my resident orb finder. Tonight he displayed his liking of being in the middle of a drum circle.

I remember my first drum circle. I had never played an instrument and was very intimidated to beat the drum. My lack of confidence was soon assuaged when I looked around the room at everyone playing their buffalo drum or other percussion instrument such a beaded gourd. As we played and chanted I noticed that each person was in their own present moment and that all the different sounds came together in the most beautiful vibrations that bound us together.

When, I mentioned my observations to my friend, Peggy, who is known for her work with drums, tuning forks, gongs, and crystal bowls, she said, "Healing Sounds through a Drum Circle often brings harmony and balance to the drummers when that is the purpose for the Circle. I have facilitated the EarthBeat Women's Drum Circle with that purpose for over thirteen years. It is not uncommon for friendly animals to notice the soothing vibes and come into the center of Circle. A shy pet may not go there, but sociable animals often do. When the drumming is soft and harmonious is when some animals show how much they feel the Beat!"

Judging from the way my cat responds to a drum circle I can fully understand the healing effects I gain from drum circle. I can hardly wait until we meet again.

  1. I love your car too, and I usually only like my own. You taught me something with your post about the drum circle and vibrations. Thanks for sharing. I am on Nashville with Hsl, the dog and cat. I will probably spend much of the summer here. He moved to s new apt. just down from the old one. It is bright and sunny so I am much happier here now. Talk to you soon. Meg

  2. Dear Jean
    I have been taking courses in sound healing and are praticing it as well. It works. Sound is at a higher level of frequences than light.
    Love and Light, KIRSTIN

  3. Kirstin,
    Thank you for your comment. Sound healing is so interesting. I find that I respond differently to different sounds especially those of crystal bowls.
    My friend Peggy has given drum workshops in nursing homes and cancer facilities and the residents benefit so much from the sounds, socialization, and fun of active participation of drumming.

  4. Meg,
    The cat likes you too. When you come back maybe you would like to go to a drum circle with me. I always enjoying talking to you about alternative subjects.
