Sonic alignment whips are medium weight whips with the same slim profile as the Tibetan Wave whips. They are made in the traditional American bull whip style with handles that come in both 10 and 12 inches. They have one or two braided bellies, two bolsters and a medium shot load. Standard length is 6 and 7 foot. Lighter handles, different length or no shot available upon request. These whips are built to last and will provide years of fun.
Sonic alignment is more than what I have named the "pretty" whips. It is a specific way to connect with yourself for therapeutic purposes. Sonic Alignment was born at a time when I had hit rock bottom. I was suffering with some significant health problems as well as trying to take care of my child who has classic autism. I wasn't getting any sleep and that caused me to spiral into a depression. I decided that something had to give so I started to change how I ate and took up meditation and energy work. I feel like both of those helped a lot.
That's when my Aunt Billie told me that (WE) were going to learn how to use the bullwhip. I had no way of knowing that this would be the best thing that ever happened to me and totally change my life and how I think about everything.
Aunt Billie is in her 90s and she is so vibrant and alive. I am always amazed by her willingness to learn new things and have adventures of all kinds.
So, I agreed to figure out where to get whips and how to use them.
I won't lie, we took some hits as we were learning but it was too much fun to stop.
We both noticed that after we learned what we were doing we felt so good after practice. I mean SOOO good. The energy I have for hours after is almost like a B12 shot! Whips are addicting in a lot of ways.
I noticed that the days that I practiced before I meditated It seemed that it was so much easier to get into my groove and the benefits seem to be amplified. My health was improving and I was better able to deal with the things in my life that I couldn't control. It seemed like a miracle!
Over the next few years I have been figuring out how to combine the two into a whipping moving meditation that calms the mind and feeds the soul. I've shared this with all my friends crazy enough to try it and feel it is time to share with the world. It became clear really fast that, for this to have lasting benefits, everyone would need their own whip. I discussed it with 3 different whip makers and even purchased from them but I was disappointed in the end result. That is what set me on the path to building my own whips. The rest, as they say, is history.

I build every whip with the intention to empower and improve life. I use the vibration of gemstones, wood, color and sacred geometry to amplify that intention and build that right into your whip. Depending on what your personal needs are you will be attracted to different stones and color, etc.
The man who built my first whip told me that the cracks in things are how the light gets in.... Cracking a whip lets light in without breaking anything. I hold on to that thought every time I use my whips.
I teach two classes on sonic alignment a year. One in the spring and one in the fall. Dates and details will be in my blog. Email me if you would like to have a private session or if you want to discuss the details of a whip.

The brown and black one is quite possibly one of the most exquisite whips I have ever cracked. That includes 50+ year old samples from the legendary Cecil Henderson!
The connection to the handler is just sublime. I've handled so many whips, (especially "trainer" whips,) that just feel dead. They might roll out cleanly and accurately, they might crack readily and well, but the response is "mechanical." Not only is this one is straight as a pin, and cracks effortlessly, but the handler feels every subtle movement the whip makes.
The green and black with the brass ferrule? Words escape me, (and I'm a long-winded novelist!) The best way that I can describe it...
You know that bit in the Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya is describing the sword that his father Domingo Montoya made to Westley, (it's describe more in depth in the novel by William Goldman how Domingo had to adjust the balance and length of the grip to precisely fit the hand of the Six-Fingered Man,) and Westley's response "I've never seen it's equal."
This whip is my Domingo Montoya sword.
Bobbi and I have gone back and forth about whips and how they handle and how the energy passes through them for well over three years now...Just wonderful conversations between two good friends.
We've also had long, detailed conversations about what my "next whip" from her would be, and we went back and forth with all sorts of different ideas.
Somehow, Bobbi managed to take all that disparate, convoluted, often esoteric and obscure conversation and alchemically distill it into this beautiful green and black Philosophers Stone of supersonic perfection.
Whips make noise. That's what they were designed to do..They speak...They shout...They bark.
This one sings...
I can not thank you enough, dear lady....
Kind words from clients:
I am writing this email, Bobbi, to thank you for the fantastic experience I had during your recent Sonic Alignment Spiritual Seminar. It was fun, invigorating, and divinely inspiring all at the same time. I felt it was ingenious how you combined your amazing talent in creating such gorgeous, professional, and personalized "whips of inspiration" together with original Open Heart Meditations. I felt as though the ingredients blended in precisely the perfect manner to reach within us so as to "Crack the Cosmic Egg" for manifesting our most cherished dreams.
Your teaching strategies are superb, gentle, and safe in guiding us to maneuver the use of the magnificent power that these divine whips can unleash within both the physical and spiritual planes within.
Our time together left me feeling that at last I may have been able to master much greater control over my capacity to manifest the reality I truly desire.
You are such a beautiful, loving teacher and Master Craftswoman, Bobbi! I can hardly wait to receive the customized personal Sonic Whip Alignment Tool you are creating for me to continue this practice on my own.
Thank you from the core of my soul!
Isis Adams, M.Ed.
"A Belated birthday gift of a whip to my son from great weapons master Bobbi HolyOak. The whip is almost as magical as the dance of the one who wove it together, made it. Bobbi demonstrates proper whip safety and guidelines to the 8 year old. She wields the whip, cracks it, spins, dances. Divine Feminine reawakened within, empowered. Mystique of body movement. Tool for healing. I'm humbled."
"Bobbi, thanks again! and you should be very proud of yourself, now you've been a teacher for me and part of you now it's here in Mexico and it'll be extended as I teach somebody else... you are leaving very good footprints around the world. Congratulations! and thank you again for all your help."

Whips are a lot of fun but they are not toys. Make sure to always wear safety gear and practice well away from other people and animals. Never hit anyone with your whip. Bobbi HolyOak and HolyOak whips are not responsible for any injury to person or property incurred by the use/miss use of our whips. Have fun, be smart, be safe and keep on cracking!
