Falling asleep during your meditation means one thing and one thing only; you're tired. When you start to meditate , the mind and the body starts to settle down. If you are tired, the fatigue will start to release and you'll fall asleep. If you feel tired and sleepy in meditation, don't resist it. Allow yourself to fall asleep.

Everything we do affects everything else in creation. By practicing meditation and increasing the coherence in our own life, we affect the coherence for everything else in the world on very subtle level.

Using sound to support natural healing process is not a new discovery, Quantum Physicists and researchers are now proving what ancient seers and spiritual masters of many cultures have used as healing tools for thousands of years. Sound has a profound effect on your mind and body. It has been proven in neurological studies that listening to music makes us more productive and creative; it can relieve stress. This is because listening to music floods our brains with dopamine — the happy chemical. It also releases oxytocin, a natural painkiller and hormone that allows us to bond with and trust people. The sound from various healing instruments I play during a session influences our brain wave frequencies and can help bring the brain from beta state to alpha state or even theta state. This is the state that occurs when you are in a profound state of relaxation.
