Sacred Sound Healing with Carolyn Vinup

Welcome to Sound Healing, Self-Care Ceremonies, Consciousness Expanding Journeys and Creating Sacred Environments with Feng Shui

Hello! I am so excited you are here! I am Carolyn Vinup of Gateways to Brilliance.
For almost 25 years I have been offering Sound Healing, Self-Care Ceremonies, Consciousness Expanding Journeys and Creating Sacred Environments with Feng Shui.

My intention is to invite you to experience transformational ceremonies that awaken your higher consciousness and expand your inner light. When you ignite your inner brilliance and unleash your courage, you become bolder, brighter, and more powerful. You begin to attract more of what you want in your life. You are in flow, feel more alive, aligned, awake and aware. Your intuition activates and accelerates.

You Ignite Your Divine Light.

I love to work with Sacred Sound and create Sacred Spaces where your Soul Can Dance. My work is about magnetizing high vibrations such as Love, Light, Gratitude, Appreciation and Compassion that helps wash away energy debris that holds you back from being and expressing your most brilliant light filled self. I am passionate about cultivating conscious environments both inside and out, through my work with Feng Shui and Sacred Sound.

I invite you to explore my many offerings. All my experiences are interactive, immersive, inspirational, meaningful, and transformational.

Sound Healing Reduce Stress and Feel Renewed

Reduce Your Stress and Feel Renewed with a Crystal
Singing Bowl Healing Meditation

This is a wonderful way to reduce stress and restore calm into your life. It is a beautiful gift that demonstrates an investment in self-care and self-love. Many first-time clients are referred or gifted a session.

Sound Healing is an ancient technique that invites you to experience deep states of relaxation, inner peace and may create opportunities for expanded states of awareness. Sound as a Healing Modality allows your brain to entrain or synchronize to the sound tools being used for your session. It may change your brainwaves from an active Beta state to a more relaxed meditative brainwave state of Alpha or Theta.

Sound Healing offers many benefits by lowering stress, decreases mood swings, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol levels, teaches pain management, and lowers the risk for coronary artery disease and stroke and improves sleep.

We start our time together discussing your intention for reducing stress, restoration, and renewal. A guided visualization with focused breathing and the beautiful healing qualities of the Crystal Singing Bowls will take you on a journey that relieves stress and promotes overall health and wellbeing.

A Sound Healing Session may include the singing of an Ancient Chant, Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Bowls, Ting Sha’s, Tuning Forks, and Drums. After a Sound Healing Session, you will feel lighter, brighter, and more radiant.

Introduction to the Sacred Sound Experience

Receiving Messages through Singing Bowls

Crystal Singing Bowls act as a conduit for Spirtual Messages

After 20 years of creating sacred space and healing opportunities, the Crystal Singing Bowls love to share messages with my clients.

We will start our time together with a brief check-in. You will then be given an opportunity to select a few Sacred Stones to accompany your session. Once you are on the healing table we will begin with a breathing exercise. You will state your intention for healing, well-being, wholeness and expanding consciousness out loud and then a guided meditation will take you on a sound healing journey.

Messages from the Crystal Singing Bowls begin with the Angel Bowl, then move on to the Unconditional Love Bowls, the Clearing/Lifting/Surrender Bowl, Activation Bowl, the Universal Messenger Bowl, and the 2-closing bowls will carry the sound current on for eternity. The space will continue to reverberate, and you will be invited to experience silence for 5-20 minutes. During this time, I will shower you with more Light. After the session is completed, we will spend time debriefing the experience.

As your energy fields open, you will receive more light, you will feel more love. Most people feel lighter, brighter, and more radiant after a sacred sound ceremony.  It is a holy and sacred experience, it connects you to the oneness of your divinity, where you are one with creation. It is a heart centered and compassionate meditative experience.

Labyrinth Walk and Mini-sound Experience

Labyrinth Walk and Mini-Sound Experience

Grateful Heart Labyrinth Walk and Mini Sound Healing Experience.
Walking a Labyrinth with focused intention is an exercise in Contemplation and Mindfulness.

The Grateful Heart Labyrinth is 32’ in diameter with 5 turns on each side. The center is anchored by a White Swamp Oak and the strength and power this tree emits is incredibly powerful.

Some people walk the Labyrinth barefoot to ground into Earth energy. The meditative walk may take 10-15 minutes or up to an hour or more. The pace is up to you. You may choose to pause at each turn, write in a journal, or be quiet with your thoughts and appreciate the inner silence. Once you reach the center you can decide if you want to sit on one of the two benches and take in nature, or you can stare and reflect on the Blue Spruce Pine Trees and natural sounds around you.

After the Labyrinth walk, you will go into the Sacred Sound Chamber for a mini-sound healing experience.

Gently and lovingly escorts you to heaven

The Blessing was one of the most sacred ceremonies that I have ever experienced.  From a purely physical standpoint it eradicated my stress and I was washed with love and light.  From a spiritual standpoint, concepts of “God” and “Light” were transformed to “Being”.

Gather blessings, like flowers to your heart

I was excited the entire drive to Carolyn’s Blessing Ceremony. I knew that something wonderful, marvelous, something new was about to happen. I actually got lost, although I have known the way to Carolyn’s for years. Carolyn’s energy and enthusiasm was contagious, because I could tell that she cared. She wanted only what the Creator wants for me– and she had offered herself up to be a vehicle for that process…

Healing Sound Session with Gateways to Brilliance

A few years ago I had not even heard of sound healing. I have arrived at the Gateways to Brilliance sacred sound chamber by way of a long wellness journey.
