Ancient Sound Healing Review 1

I was invited to Beverly's Ancient Sound Healing (ASH) room during late Spring/early Summer of 2021 by one of my really good friends.
As I would later realize and practice, my friend didn't really explain the ASH experience that Beverly offers. One can't really explain it...it is only lived. I don't fully recall what my friend said to entice me to listen in, but because I trust her, I went in willingly...curious. I was new to ClubHouse and it might have been the first room I'd actually visited.
At first, I listened and observed. I can't remember if I'd asked for a song that night. I am shy. I didn't know how to work the buttons. I wanted to lay low at first and "check out the spirits."
I found there was love and acceptance in the room. It was void of contention; void of judgment; void of shame or ridicule. It was a space that made room for everyone to soar and for everyone to HELP one another soar. Clipped wings were mended. Wounds healed. Confidence restored. Energy released. Energy replenished.
Well, it didn't take long for me to jump on stage...maybe a week or two. These were the days when BevB was playing 4-5 times a week! I had plenty of time to observe. I think I received a song on an evening when Beverly played for everyone on stage. It was relatively long...it was colorful. She paused at the beginning to tell me the color orange came to mind. I was quiet because it meant nothing to me. The song seemed to tell a story I'd never articulated...it wasn't meant to have words. At the end, she said she'd witnessed the full visible color spectrum and that it ended on purple. Purple, huh? My favorite color. The next morning, while brushing my teeth, I looked in the mirror and noted that I had been WEARING ORANGE! I later learned that these types of hints were ethereal winks of confirmations and reassurances that we were indeed in divine sync.
I said to myself, "Well, hold up now...sis is the real deal."
I can go back to every song she has played over me since and attest to the validity and power of every note and message. Oh, we don't have space enough for me to go down that lane. Just know that part of the soundtrack of my journey is in the key of BevB!
She calls herself "The Sleep Whisperer." If you're like me - plagued by frequent bouts with insomnia - a night person in a day person's world - well, I can vouch for her gift to help anyone fall asleep! On those nights when she'd play for hours, I'd fall asleep and wake up in time to say "You got this" fitty-eleven times and drop right back into slumber!
I have had private sessions in addition to being in the room. I went from "checking the spirits" to being a moderator. I went from stranger zone to calling Beverly my sister. I have connected with others and call them sisters too.
I wanted to be able to describe the Ancient Sound Healing experience, but I still don't have the words. So, I looked up the word experience and found: practical contact with and observation of facts or events; and an event or occurrence that leaves an impression on someone. An impression is a strong effect produced on the intellect, feelings, conscience, etc.
As she would say, "Sit with that."
BeverlyB's life intersected with mine during a time of shifting and shaking up. I am not the same person I was two years ago. She has been an integral part of my confronting some things, my healing from some things, my reckoning with some things, and my becoming. If only you knew it all!!!
Perhaps going forward, I will say to others, "Come commune with the Creator, the messenger, the hosts, the music, a global network, and yourself. Come hear a song and/or message that yields transformation, freedom, and peace through love and community. Let me introduce you to BeverlyB."
