Healing & Harps:
In the first half of Sunday’s show, harpist, author and energy healer Carrol McLaughlin discussed her work as an energy healer, and participation in studies that show how harp music speeds up healing. The vibrations of the harp’s strings go all the way into the human body, and can play a part in harmonizing a person’s individual frequencies, she explained. Further, when someone has an area of weakness in the body, it’s because it’s not vibrating at its full frequency, “and with training, you can entrain that part of the body that’s not in pitch and bring it into harmony or vibration with the rest of the body,” she said. “Once the body is all talking to each other, real healing happens,” she added.
In a healing experiment conducted at a hospital’s ICU, McLaughlin played her harp for a number of patients, and it was found that 87% felt a reduction in pain without any change of their medications, she reported. At the hospital, she played for a man in a coma, and after seven minutes, he took off his breathing mask, and said ‘thank you.’ In another case, she was requested to play her harp for a patient headed to hospice, but after he heard the music, his doctor canceled the plans for hospice, as the patient’s vital signs had improved so dramatically. She also shared methods and meditations to manifest healing and positive outcomes in one’s life.
(Just listening to random harp music as on a CD does not help. Patient and harp must be in the same room. McLaughlin said she had to find the frequency the patients needed, and she does that intuitively. She knows of a doctor who walked up to a screaming baby and quieted it in seconds singing one note.)
