Rattle and Drum

Last weekend, I attended an ‘introduction to Shamanism’ workshop.  I did, however, had to run to the music store to buy a rattle and drum to equip myself for the course.  Click below:

Without going into too much detail, in essence, if you rattle or drum at 4 to 7 beats per second for about 15 minutes, you are able to create a sound vibration that your brain waves will automatically sync with.  In doing so, you are able to create a fertile environment for you to access Consciousness (Spirit/God/Source).  Shaking the rattle is more subtle than the drumming as you can see from my brief video clip.  You choose your preference.  I like to use the rattle as a warm-up first, then drum afterwards with more intensity.  I have just started to begin this practice in the morning allowing the beat of the drum or rattle to penetrate my pores, with eyes closed, walking, standing, or sitting down, I simply follow the beat and allow my imagination to run unbridled.  At the end of the session, my body tends to feel energized with a lightness in my chest area.  I am ready for my day.

Martin Duffy explains the process very clearly with more detail and leads you to a 15-minute drumming journey afterwards.

I hope you find this helpful:-)

Would love to hear from you:-)
