Going through cancer and chemotherapy leaves most people with some battle scars – both those you can see and those you cannot – and there is often a heightened sense of anxiety at times. During my own journey, I have explored all sorts of alternative therapies including diet, herbal supplements, yoga, meditation, and music. All of them have been very positive experiences for me. I am open to just about any alternative idea that does not involve hallucinations or drugs. I also believe that people cross our paths for a reason. I have met many wonderful people in the last couple of years and one of them is Amy Robbins-Wilson.
She literally lights up a room when she walks in and has the ability to draw people towards her. As I’ve gotten to know her, I’ve learned that she possesses two Master’s degrees, she is a Reiki Master and Awakener, and she has the voice of an angel. One of the more fascinating aspects about her is that she performs Angelsong Sessions for individuals and Angelsong Circles for a group of people. Ah, and what is Angelsong, you ask? According to Amy’s website (link is below), Angelsong is “a form of energetic singing that is a combination of live a capella-inspired song and healing techniques. Amy opens transformational space through music” to assist people experiencing stress, grief, loss, or those looking for a sense of balance. She sings over the person/people and smooths out energetic auras. No, this is not based on science as we know it and it may sound wacky to some. However, I have been able to experience an Angelsong session firsthand it was unlike anything I have ever experienced.
The session began when Amy sat me down in a chair that faced a window overlooking the beautiful outdoors. I closed my eyes and she started singing and moving about the space. I have no idea how long I sat there because I got lost in her voice and my own meditation. Afterwards, I felt such a sense of healing and peace. The best analogy I can draw is that it is a spiritual yoga. When I do yoga, I am so focused on what I’m doing and on my own breath that I cannot think of anything else and when the class is over, I feel a sense of peace. This is the same feeling I had during and after the Angelsong session. No anxiety, no jitters, and surprisingly, the nearly constant pain in my chest where my port had been was gone. I have a back injury that has gotten worse over the years. After the Angelsong session was over, my back pain was nearly gone, too. It’s been a few days and neither pain has not come back. I still feel centered, peaceful, and feel that I have found another method of healing. I know, I know….some may say it’s a placebo effect or this can’t really happen because it makes no sense in the scientific world. Whatever it is, IT IS REAL. If you get the chance, I highly recommend trying one of these sessions. It is perfect for new moms, cancer patients, those in hospice, or anyone who needs some healing and balance. It is one of the best therapies I have experienced and if you keep an open mind, it can help you, too.
