to Sound Meditation
Since a very young age I have been fascinated with music and sounds that surround us - sounds in nature, objects in daily life (car engines, phones, plastic bags, vacuum cleaners etc) and sounds that we make to communicate with one another.
The more I study what sound is and apply it to my daily wellness routine, the more I realize what a powerful tool it is for personal self-development.
My education on different languages, cultures and music genres started from a very young age.
I was born in a small fisher's town called Murmansk, in northern Russia, where I attended music school and performed with my aunt's music band. Since my 10th, I lived in the Netherlands, traveled and performed throughout Europe and earned a Degree in Arts And Music Business in the UK.
After my graduation in 2010, I decided to join my adventurous mom who just moved to Panama City in Central America.
Soon my singing career took off and I performed at countless weddings and private events, along with appearances on radio stations and TV shows. And I recorded my first album with original pop songs.
After three fun years of being an entertainment artist, I felt a strong calling from within saying “Anastasia, it is time to explore further”.
Vaguely understanding what that message meant, I knew it was time to travel to a new destination.
The last seven years here, in the US, have been truly transformational, both personally and professionally. I found myself on a spiritual path and discovered a completely different way of singing. A way where sound takes on a fundamental role for self-discovery and self-reflection.
As I continued on my spiritual journey, I realized I had to relearn everything I knew about sound. I thought it was simply sound, nothing more, nothing less. But after a few eye-opening books and experiences, I “saw” sound from a whole different perspective. I was astonished to experience for myself what a wonderful tool sound is for emotional well being.
I eagerly learned more about the power of sound, and how frequencies and energies affect us. The inner-exploration of the good, the bad and the ugly is always a hard to face, but it helps clear out a lot of emotional luggage and establish an even stronger connection with you inner self.
After years of trial and error, I finally heard and understood how my voice longed to be expressed and the purpose behind it.
