Frequently Asked Questions
The Athletes Sports Bag is a combination of unique understandings and proven processes that can assist you to expand your performance easily and effortlessly, The foundation of my work in vibrational sound therapies so I will address those questions after we look at ‘the important stuff’.
So lets look at some FAQ’s or Frequently Asked Questions
Here we will be looking at The Athletes Sports Bag programs from both Sheila and Tina’s perspectives. (The old and the young and the non sporting and the sporting)!
This is a common first question for many people. What can this program do for me?
So to answer as succinctly as possible The Athletes Sports Bag is not just one program. It is based on a series of programs offering differing levels of expertise and assistance.
We will look at the individual programs separately;
1 The Best Workout for Me program was created by Sheila some years ago around 2009 as a ‘Gym’ program as a number of her friends and colleagues were athletes or coached sporting teams.
Later created into The Best Workout for you it is an Intentioned Self Healing Session and is available on the Sounds from Source website
These vibrational sounds are recorded intentioned sounds, that work with the ancient healing systems of the body and contain spiritual commands to assist in healing your body. During this online session – client session versions of these sounds are played.
The three specific sounds work together as follows;
- The Releasing Muscle Tension sounds allow you to target specific muscle areas by using you own intention to focus on the muscle groups you wish to relax, while listening to the sounds, thus creating a more flexible and relaxed body system.
- The Best Workout for You -is designed release all of the locks and blockages in the physical body allowing a greater range of movement and “flexibility”, as well as assist with recovery and muscle tone.
- Perfect for Golfers or any sports person or for people who are want to regain some of their flexibility and the Flexibility sound – gives you the best levels of flexibility before you begin your workout or gym program
- The sounds also assist with recovery from work out session or any strenuous physical activity.
This is NOT a coaching or a come back next week program. It is an adjustment or re-calibration of some of the mind/ body connections and is of benefit to the ‘aware athlete’;
Based on a program called I Communicate, Do You Understand, The Athletes Sports Bag program Communication and Understanding SPORT is an innovative new idea to assist athletes to ‘fine tune’ their sporting performance by releasing physical and mental blocks and muscle memory programs from the body
Using an extensive knowledge of the body and mind connection in a simple and non invasive format it is possible to improve and adapt sporting performance.
The Communication and Understanding SPORT program is based on adjusting a series of learned behaviours or patterns and to make fine adjustments to both muscle / cell memory and inherited and learned belief systems.
Combining cell memory and vibrational frequencies with skill, attitude and perseverance
4 For the Optimal Athlete, the above and more;

Sheila has been creating personalised hypnosis programs for athletes for many years. This service is only available to those who are serious about their sport and is an additional service to The Optimal Athlete program.
Firstly we need to step away from in many instances what we have been taught or learned about the physical human body and explore some facts about it a little differently. We may well be going over old ground for some people so please bear with is while we create the ‘foundation’.
The body as a harmonics of frequency – The idea that the body holds codes to its own existence has been with us for centuries. Nostradamus, Kepler, deVinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Tesla, Einstein and Asimov have all sought to commemorate the esoteric codes of life. I use a quote from Sharry Edwards below.
Sharry Edwards™ is the pioneer in the study of Human BioAcoustic Biology whose work spans more than 30 years is well known in Energy and Frequency Medicine. Sharry commented some years ago that ‘Each person vibrates at their own, unique harmonics of frequency. When the complex frequencies of the body become unbalanced, the body manifests this imbalance as dis-stress or dis-ease at the structural and biochemical levels’.
(Sharry Edwards has an innate talent that allows all of us to benefit from her work and her ability to translate a person’s vocal codes into usable information that can be used to promote and extend the existence of human life.)
So let’s break ‘The body as a harmonics of frequency’ down into some individual questions and answers. We will start with the most common ones.
What is Vibrational Sound Therapy, where does Vibrational Sound Therapy / Healing come from, is it new and how and why does Vibrational Sound therapy work?
Answer I am going to break this common ‘multi question’ down into a number of individual components.
Firstly we need to look at history for some answers;
Vibrational sound therapy or Vibrational Healing as it is sometimes called is based on knowledge as old as time: The body has an energetic matrix around which the human form develops e.g. as dividing/ multiplying cells. This knowledge was known to the Egyptians, Chinese, Hindu’s, Buddhists, as well as the shamanic healers of Africa, Asia and South America. It was recorded in all of the major sacred texts, including the Old and New Testaments, and underlies or is the ‘backbone of the ancient practices of acupuncture, Tai Chi and Yoga.
Well known names in the field of identifying vibrational and electrical fields stem back to Harold Saxton Burr in 1935 who proposed that all living organisms have electrical fields which govern their growth, a matrix or mould which governs their shape.
Semyon and Valentiana Kirlian in the 1940’s who refined a technique from 1898 for photographing an organism’s energy field. Currently known as Kirlian Photography.
Rupert Sheldrake a Cambridge biochemist and author formulated an extended theory of morphogenetic fields based on Burr’s findings.
Richard Gerber M.D. the author of Vibrational Medicine: New Choices for Healing Ourselves which is considered the definitive text on vibrational healing. In this text he describes what he terms “The Human Multidimensional Energy System.” An egg shaped energy field (or body) often described as the Auric fields which surrounds the physical body. There are number of layers which make up this energy body.
Cameron Dawson 1932 to 2004 (The Dawson Program) who was my teacher and mentor spent more than thirty years converting his theoretical knowledge into a practical program to identify and correct imbalances in the body quickly and painlessly without the need for drugs or surgery.
I went on to use Cameron Dawson’s teachings as a foundation for my own extensive research and work with vibrational sound.
Beginning in 2005 with the Healing Sounds and later The Sounds from Source Programs, which are based on a combination of my training in Vibrational healing and other fields in combination with my colleague Susan Ormsby’s Bachelor of Science and Applied Par Psychology diploma and our own extensive research into how the vibrational sounds effect the body and its systems.
In 2013 I began to investigate another path of sound and frequency and this led me to creating a different level of work under the heading of Vibrational Sound Programs.com, and following a somewhat ‘parallel path by focusing on using ‘sound therapies’ in a different way
Vibrational Sound Therapy addresses more than the imbalances in the emotional, structural, physical, and chemical / nutritional interrelated processes of the body. It looks at the genetic patterning of our ancestors as well as the levels of anxieties relating to issues of rejection, the vanishing twin syndrome, and the spiritual levels of cellular memory relating to past events and incarnations.
The individual programs address many areas of the being from the distortion of the energetic matrix leading to a twist in the body, to levels of anxiety and depression.
Both The Sounds from Source and Vibrational Sound programs are developed to recognize and work with the cause of the situation, rather than the symptoms.
More and more information about sound and vibrational frequencies is being identified all the time. We know that sound and especially vibrational sound is one of the oldest healing modalities known to humans. Sound forms our earliest experiences of our external environment whilst in the womb and our earliest experiences of love and fear. The vibration of sound from the voice of our mother or father, and the vibration of thought and intention e.g. the fear of Mum thinking about lighting a cigarette, she doesn’t have to actually smoke it to create the vibration of fear in the developing foetus.
The comment below again from Sharrie Edwards explains it well.
In fact, sound or frequency, form the basis of our world. And frequency, as vibrational medicine, is at the heart of the world of wellness.
Sheila says – My realizations in 2004 that ‘every cell in your body holds memory’, led me to experimenting further with the effects of sounds and words. I knew from Cameron Dawson’s work the incredible results for myself as well as others and I was excited to see what else could be achieved by communicating with the individual cells.
This led me to creating the very first ‘Anxiety’ program in 2004 which was the forerunner for many more levels of ‘ different types of anxieties ’ programs and the creation of the ‘7 Steps to Freedom program’ www.The7StepstoFreedom.com which is a free anxiety giveaway.
More amazing results followed as I worked on myself first, in areas such as allergies and genetic memory and was able to release long held belief patterns and more. I based my sound creations on the knowledge that ‘Nature abhors a vacuum’ and will fill an ‘empty space’ with whatever is currently available’. So in removing a negative or unwanted memory from a cell I needed to replace it with a new and positive ‘memory’ or instruction.
The answer to this question is open ended some people report feeling tingles or sensations in their bodies both while the sounds are playing and often hours later, other people have reported a sense of calmness or peace, and some very aware people have expressed a feeling of the sounds working with specific areas of their bodies. Many very sensitive souls have commented that ‘they felt the sounds’ working on them once they had booked an appointment. I see this as the body’s recognition of something that it ‘already knows and identifies with’.
The easy answer to this is No they cannot; your body has an innate intelligence which allows it to take what it needs from the sounds and to allow you to utilize that for your own personal healing. Some self healing will happen instantly, other areas or depths of issues will occur over a period of time. The sounds are given and created with love and the highest of intention.
On the Sounds from Source .com website of which I am the founder and joint CEO, the individual sounds (more than 1000) are categorized into different areas of accessibility. These include different practitioner availability, practitioner recommendation for clients and ‘public’ sounds. The Public sounds are available for sale through the Sounds from Source store.
The individual sounds and their intention vary from the very simple to the deepest of issues and we believe as Practitioners that we have a ‘duty of care’ to our clients. Some of the deeper sounds are recommended to be played in conjunction with one another, and we believe it is of assistance to the client to be able to share the thoughts and issues which may surface from them at these times with a trained practitioner.
Wanting to try some sounds?
The Sounds from Source YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/soundsfromsource has a series of free sounds for public
Depending on the specific sound you are listening to, Peace, available on the YouTube channel is a good one to play daily.

Flexibility one of my favorite programs and a ‘give away’ on the Sounds from Source website or via YouTube is multipurpose and great before a sporting event, the gym, or to clear your thinking.
- There are 3 individual sounds that create a program we have long referred to as The Best Workout For You and these are available individually via the store and the Directory of Sounds on the Sounds from Source website, or the online Self Healing session ; The Best Workout for you it is an Intentioned Self Healing Session and is available on the Sounds from Source website at http://www.soundsfromsource.com/best-workout.html
- Although I trained as a Vibrational Kinesiologist with the late Cameron Dawson (The Dawson Program) from 2003, she and previously used many different ancient instruments in her work over many years. Her work specifically with the Tibetan Bells which we have created in to what was originally known as The Healing Sounds and is now renamed as Sounds from Source spans from 2002 to the current time, and additional aspects were added to this is 2013.
- Yes she has and over a period of many years. The Sounds from Source Practitioner page lists qualified Sounds from Source Practitioners, and sessions are available with most practitioners in person or over the telephone or internet. It should also be noted here – that not all of the people who have trained with Sounds from Source are on the list. Some were not contactable when compiling the list for the new Sounds from Source website please send an email to email@example.com if you are a practitioner and wish to be included on the listing..For people wishing to check that their practitioner is in fact, a registered, trained Sounds from Source practitioner and what level of training they have received please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.Sheila offers additional practitioner training programs under Sheila-Kennedy.com and these are not affiliated with the Sounds from Source website or practitioner programs and comprise of The Athletes Sports Bag.com, Vibrational Sound Programs .com, Energetic Frequencies .com and Absolute Health and Wellness .comTina Louise (Ciavarella) West is one of my practitioners with both the Sounds from Source Academy and Sheila-Kennedy.com programs.
- Sheila has long been a ‘sensitive’ who is able to receive frequencies’ that other people may not hear. This is usually described as ‘channeling’ although Sheila’s personal explanation would be that she ‘downloads’ the information. The ‘gift’ of the information which has ‘translated’ into the Sounds from Source programs and more is not one which is taken lightly, both Susan and Sheila hold an enormous level of respect gratitude and awe for their own individual journeys of the ‘guardianship’ of this ancient and sacred knowledge.
In April 2008 the information was given that the sounds ‘hold the frequency of all life forms’More recently in mid 2011 as Susan and Sheila worked together the following information was given:‘The absolute purity of the sounds cannot be contaminated nor interfered with – they truly are the frequency of all life forms.
In being in a pure state are not and cannot be bent manipulated, controlled, used for subversive action or ‘fractured out of their original context
We were also told to look at how sound travels, not in waves as I had described previously. It penetrates and disperses [a wide ranging frequency] and it reverberates’
- In simple terms Sheila has an ‘inquiring mind’! The Sounds from Source program’s as we know them have been Sheila’s focus since 2004 and her commitment to them is absolute. They have often taken her onto journeys of discovery far beyond anything we could have dreamed possible.In 2008 Sheila created the Absolute Health and Wellness programs with her then and since deceased late husband, and these had a different focus. Following Sheila’s passion for working with ‘ASD’ The Autism Spectrum Disorder, and with a belief ‘that if you can help a child, then you do not have an adult with a problem’ Sheila has spent many years creating specific programs based around these areas and what she terms ‘Wellness Integration’.The original and often revamped ‘Absolute Autism’ programs have continued to grow over the years and are currently being reborn into a totally different and expanded format.
The Best Workout for You / The Athletes Sports Bag is a series of programs created jointly between Sheila and Tina.
As Tina commented earlier; ‘The idea for The Athletes Sports Bag programs came from a conversation that Sheila and I were having one day (I actually call her The BJJ Granny) and she is one of my biggest supporters. We brainstormed some ideas and Sheila created some new programs for me to trial based on a program she has been working on for many years based on Communication and Understanding’.
