The ‘wave’ in ChantWave refers to the way in which feelings may be less restricted, and to an energetic dynamic encompassing both the shadows of our soul and the radiance of our light. ChantWave is also part of a greater ‘wave’ sweeping the world in the early 21st century, as more people are finding the power of chant to be undeniably healing and heartfully appealing.
The Power of the Chant
The word ‘enchantment’ has its roots in ‘chant’. Everytime we sing a repeated phrase, we are ‘enchanting’ or entraining ourselves. Writers of radio jingles know this fact, and are skilled in creating indelible melodies that we can’t get out of our head. Thus it’s important to be aware of what we are chanting and choosing to align with those words- or not.
