This month we are very lucky to be interviewing Peggy Black who I first became aware of through her free Morning Messages which I had signed up for and have been receiving for a number of months now. Along with these inspiring messages Peggy also uses Sound in her healing practice and I was interested in finding out a little more about how this type of healing came into her life.
Colin:- So Peggy, thanks very much for being here with us today, perhaps we could start with finding out a little more about how you came to heal using sound in particular and how that works for you.
Peggy:- Thank you so much for offering me this opportunity to share this story. I’ve been doing body work, massage and reflexology for over 35 years and I was very interested in metaphysics and spiritual awakening. Back in the 60’s I was reading books that you could only find in dusty old bookstores, so it’s always been a part of my interest and my passion. In the process of doing what I call energy work or body massage I was aware of being clairaudient and clairvoyant, I could see and feel the energy in the body of my client and worked with the blockages in that way.
I had a particularly powerful experience in the early 90’s when I returned from living in Arabia and I ended a 13 year relationship and marriage. In the process of that completion there was so much emotion, discomfort, pain and loss that I was almost not functioning, and I know that many people will be able to identify with this.
It was then that my internal guidance, something we all have within our higher selves, advised me to take these intense and wild emotions to my altar. I have an altar in my closet with a candle and sacred images, and I would go there and light a candle and say to divine spirit, ‘please assist me in healing and transforming this intense grief that is in my body’. I would cry and grieve and scream and wail, and then when that was done I would blow the candle out and thank divine spirit.
Over a period of weeks and months great waves of grief and anger would well up, so I would repeat this process, asking divine spirit to help clear this grief and anger. I realise now that I was clearing out the emotional storage that had been going on my entire lifetime, all the emotions of anger or sadness that I had not processed, that I had shoved down into my cells and tissues were now getting expressed and freed up, transformed.
I had been going through this process for a number of months then, during a massage that I was giving to my mother, I took a deep breath to begin the work and to our surprise these big powerful, loud sounds came through, which startled us both. We got the giggles and I ask if I might continue. She requested that I close all the doors and windows. I made the sounds a few more minutes, then she sat up on the table and said ‘I have no idea what you have just done, but I have no pain in my body right now’.
So that was the beginning of the ‘gift’ of my sound work being revealed, and over the next decade I began to remember how this powerful healing modality works. I think this is what we all do, remember, because we are all multi-dimensional beings, and we are all waking up to the many gifts we have come into this embodiment to express.
I had connected with a gift of sound and to the power of my own voice and I became aware that there was a presence, this divine team I am working with, that was supporting these sounds. Really what I was doing was making myself available as a receiver and allowing this energy that was being translated into sounds to come through me much like a radio works. Just as you turn on a certain station to hear a particular type of music, I was just a receiver of this celestial energy coming through in the form of sound vibration.
It was such a powerful experience I began to use it with my clients and I began to be invited to present these big unusual strange sounds in front of five and six hundred people at conferences, which was a whole new experience to be able to get over my inhibitions.
Colin:- I was wondering how that felt, was this something you had done before?
Peggy: No I hadn’t, in fact I had an astrology reading a few months after I started this and the woman said ‘oh my goodness, you are in your second Saturn return and you are being given your gifts, you are a sound healer’ and at the time I remember wondering how she could possibly know this by just looking at her chart. Anyway I was at one of her events a little later where she was talking about Astrology and the coming Millennium, and she was saying sound would be significant as a healing modality, and then she said ‘We have a sound healer in our midst and I’d like her to stand up and offer us some sounds’.
Well at that point I was so inhibited, even in my own community, and she had ‘outed’ me in front of everybody, so I stood up and made some sounds but because I was so nervous they sounded very tight and strained. Afterwards I asked her why in the world she did such a thing, and she said ‘I was told to get you on board as soon as possible, and you were too inhibited’.
After that experience I was no longer inhibited about being in front of people making these weird sounds.
Colin: Since then you have travelled the world giving demonstrations and workshops?
Peggy: Following this I was invited to Egypt with Shamanic Journeys on an expense paid trip and I made sounds in the temples and in a Great Pyramid. I used to say I travelled the world on Sound Waves. I was also invited to go to Ireland during the phenomenal Venus transit that was taking place in 2004. Offering the sounds at all the sacred sites anchoring the energy of the transit.
I began to give classes and workshops, reading all I could about sound healing and I remember how powerful it was. I even organized and facilitated an International Sound Symposium in San Jose for 400 sound healers around the world, which was incredible. At that time I also began to create what I call sound pods, which is a group of people getting together who would not usually use sound in this way, for them to get in touch with the true power of their own healing sounds, their own voice as a healing tool.
I hold these sound pods once a month, and I allow whoever is present to just use sound in a safe environment and explore how powerful it can be. Anyone can do this, you can do this in your car, you can do this in your shower.
Colin: How would you know when to use this kind of sound?
Peggy: If you have emotion running through your body just ask, if this emotion was a sound, what would it sound like? Then give it an expression. It’s really very simple, it’s just we are inhibited; we are a society that has been told to shut up and be quiet.
I feel anyone who gets in touch with their voice through using free sound can express what their body is feeling just through pure sound, with no judgement, they will then begin to speak their truth. I think everyone’s throat chakra is a little suppressed, we don’t speak our truth, we don’t speak up for ourselves, we hesitate, so one of the tools to get past all of that is to begin to hum, or sing, or if you are in your car and are frustrated with the traffic, just begin to make some sounds.
It’s a very freeing, clearing, and a powerful way to move energy very quickly. You can use sound to clear your homes, when energy feels stagnant, just make some very big sounds around your house. Many people use bells and drums or Tibetan bowls, but you can always use your voice.
It’s a modality that is so powerful and accessible to us, and it’s free.
We are always using our voice, and energetically that voice is a frequency, it’s a pattern, a vibration, so our words are going out as patterns, as either blessings or judgements. Since I have been doing sound work I have become aware of just how powerful my words are, even in casual conversation, in the statements I make about my life. These sounds are our essence going forward in an energetic form. I believe that the conscious and intentional use of sound is our birthright and our source of power.
Colin: So how did you then come to produce the amazing Morning Messages, are they linked to the sound work?
Peggy: It was about 6 years ago after I had been very actively involved in promoting the use of sound for those who were awakening to this. The ‘team’, the energetic and celestial team that had been guiding my sound work, made me aware that they wanted to come through in a new way, through the written word, so I sat down with pen and paper and started to write. Instead of the sounds coming through I began to translate the energy I knew to be theirs into words. I did this for several weeks until one day I sat at my computer and wondered if this modality would work effectively rather than the pen and paper.
The team immediately responded and said ‘the modality is more of an issue with you that it is with us’. So I ended up transcribing hundreds of these two and three page messages into my computer for 10 months.
The Morning Messages web site happened totally spontaneously; I had been in contact with someone ordering a book on the Internet and I asked the gentleman how he was involved in the book and he said he actually produced the book for the author, and produced her web site and had helped make her a global presence. At that point I heard my ‘team’ say ‘tell him about the messages’, and up until this time I had not let anyone apart from a few close friends and family know I was doing this.
I told him about the messages and he asked me to send some examples and shortly afterwards he called me an said that his company would like to partner with me. We’d like to create your web site and offer your messages to the Internet world; create a book, a CD and so on. He told me these services would cost $10,000.
Colin: Well knowing a little about the costs of setting these things up, that was a good offer but still quite a step for you to take to take I guess.
Peggy: Well at that point I didn’t have $10,000, so I said let me think about it, and did not sleep at all that night, trying to figure out how to finance this offer. I invited the ‘team’ to guide this opportunity. The next day I call a friend and told her of this and she said she thought this was a brilliant idea; she loved my messages and thought that people ready for these messages, and then offered to give me $2,000 to start the project. I called a two more friends that day and each one gifted me $1,000, so within 24 hours I had raised $4,000, so I called the company and agreed to a partnership.
Before I flew to the companies headquarters to design the web site the ‘team’ asked me to go find the drawings that they had given to me 30 years ago. Now these were drawings I had done with my children, and they were doodles I had done with my left hand. There were volumes and volumes of art books which I had stored in my garage. I found them and scanned them into the computer. The ‘team’ said ‘when you were open, we gave you the drawings, when you were open we gave you the sounds, and now you have opened further we have given you the words’.
Colin: There is a massive emotion stirring in me as you described that, quite astounding.
Peggy: My ‘team’ have always said ‘we were woven into my energetic signature, we are your wavelength and you are our focus.’ So I am very clear that these beautiful beings are working with me in partnership, in other words they have a vested and beautiful interest in the evolution of our planet and I happen to be the doorway for that energy to come through. I feel we all have these wonderful celestial partnerships waiting for us to open up and be the vehicle for this energy to come into the physical manifestation. It’s our birthright as celestial divine beings in a physical body, to know that we are a part of that celestial divine essence and because we are physical and we are here on the planet, we have work to do, and gifts to offer.
We are not alone, we can engage with these wonderful beings of love and light in a very tangible way, and these are the messages that the ‘team’ wants everyone to know. Their most simple message is ‘We are here’ we are available, simply by request and we stream to all those who invite our presence,’ isn’t that beautiful?
So each individual that reads a message has the opportunity to recognise that they are supported by the celestial realms of love and light, and that is how all of my work has evolved.
We are all waking up to recognise that we are more than just a physical body, we are in a phase in which our planet is undergoing a phenomenal transformation of consciousness, it’s an evolution, like when fish walked out of the ocean. We are moving into a phase of recognising our own essence as as a magnificent multidimensional being, a celestial light being, and we are beginning to incorporate that being of light more fully into our awareness, our body and our cells. The great thing is we are not alone, we are being incredibly supported and guided by divine source, by the team, archangels, the beautiful beings of consciousness that truly engage with us in transforming the dysfunctional energy on this planet.
Colin: Peggy would you like to talk a little more about your ‘team’, where they come from for example?
Peggy: When I do a private reading, one of the things I speak about is the collective awareness of celestial beings that we do call angels, or we call our masters, the wise ones, Budda, the Christ Consciousness, St. Germain, Mother Mary, Quan Yin, and they are all part of this divine consciousness, they are aspects of divine awareness. These are energy beings that will come upon request, so if for example if 10,000 people ask Archangel Michael for support, an aspect of his energy is present at all 10,000 places, because energy is infinite.
What I have learned is that aside from this wonderful collective of beautiful beings that are supporting humanity we also are connected to what I will call the cosmic council of light, the celestial beings of consciousness. We know that even planets have a consciousness, and there are beings that are non-physical that want to work with us. They are beings of absolute impeccable integrity, they are higher consciousness that means they can feel and sense things that we in our physical bodies cannot.
We all get guidance, everyone who reads your e-magazine or email messages are aware that they receive internal guidance. They are supported by some invisible energy that guides and supports them, or moves them in ways where they get chills on their whole body, or they are emotionally moved as you are. Every person has felt this at some time, and generally that will be your team.
These beings of love and light want to connect with us, and if we didn’t have a physical body we’d be a part of that celestial consciousness. So as we make this huge evolutionary shift, we awaken to this grand unfoldment in which we are all a part, we are all becoming aware that we can interface with this quantum field, we can interface with these loving celestial beings.
My ‘team’ happen to be an energy and an essence that many people recognise and know as Hathor, and these beloved beings come in love and they also offer the tool of sounds and to show us how powerful sounds can be for us in creating a new reality. They are interdimensional, energetic beings that have come through a portal from another universe to be witness and support our own evolution as a group consciousness we call humanity.
I’ve known that they were Hathors since the time I started doing my sound work, and this lead me to investigate more about their energy, where they came from, what they looked like, and I felt such a kinship there. When I began to do the web site with the messages I asked them how the wanted me to present them, and they said ‘call us your ‘team’, that way these messages will reach the most people’. So that was a very neutral name for them, although I realised that this was an energy I had worked with in many lifetimes, the Hathorian energy.
This energy of sound and love has influenced our consciousness on this planet through the ages, the Tibetans with their chanting and all of the ancient words and chants in Sanskrit (in India) have been influenced by this energy. It was particularly known in Egypt in connection with Hathor the female goddess of fertility, and it was during that period that the energy of the Hathors could be seen clairvoyantly and so there are lots of carvings throughout Egypt of these beautiful beings.
When I was in Egypt there was a Hathor temple or chapel in every other temple, so you could go to the Isis temple and somewhere within that there would be an area dedicated to Hathor energy and there would be Hathor images.
These interdimensional celestial beings connect with us through our heart awareness. When we feel comfortable being in our heart presence that is when they are able to connect, by-passing our mental minds. Their lowest vibration is bliss, what we would describe as ecstasy, and we might only experience this level of bliss during our physical process of love making or deep meditative states, whereas they stay in that state all the time
Colin: I read in Saleena Ki's work that a way of getting used to that state of being is through bliss breathing, so that we can carry it around a little longer.
Peggy: Exactly, and the ‘team’ I work with are always encouraging me to stay in my joy, my gratitude and appreciation, and these are coherent vibrations where it is easier for our merging to take place. Energies like fear or worry would be like static, they would be very difficult vibrations for them to match, so if I stay in gratitude and joy I can receive the messages from my team far easier.
When a loved one was going through some tremendous challenges I was worrying about her, so when I sat down at the computer one day to talk to the ‘team’ about her situation they said ‘we invite you to envision her in her most magnificence, to see her in her joy; we invite you to hold an image of her at her best because that will encourage her to grow towards that reality. Your worry is a vibration that is weighing her down, it’s not supporting her wellbeing’.
Colin: That’s very interesting, how our thoughts can impact others.
Peggy: I find my ‘team’ are very loving, very humorous and they are always available. When I first started my sound work I would feel their presence during the work and then I would return to my mundane life. However over the last 6 years I have realised that they would like to be with me during that mundane life too, in fact nothing in our lives is mundane, so by inviting divine conscious energy through our hearts into this dimension we can transform all dysfunctional energy that we are experiencing.
Colin: That’s wonderful Peggy, thank you so much for sharing these messages with us, and I can say that the energy of your team is very present for me too, I’m sure I will have a great time getting to know them.
Peggy: You are very welcome, it is always a delight to share about the power of sound and my beloved ‘team’ and to invite others to honor their magnificence as a multidimensional being.
