More and more, people are discovering the amazing power of sound for both healing and spiritual development … instruments such as tuning forks, gongs, didgeridoos, and singing bowls. What people are finding is that the sonic vibrations from these instruments effect a positive change in both mind and body … bringing harmony into every cell of your being.
I play up to nine quartz crystal and five metal singing bowls. My sessions can be thought of as a mesmerizingly unique sonic experience that not only is heard with the ears but also felt within the body … a 45 minute emersion into the vibration and tones of crystal singing bowls.
Some people use a singing bowl session as a backdrop for their meditation practice. The absolute power and sound of singing bowls engages the mind … which helps to quiet mental chatter … enabling access to areas of the mind which are normally not accessible. Many report an expansion into higher states of awareness/consciousness.
Some use singing bowls as a sound healing modality. Exposure to the tones of bowls can help balance all systems of the body … bringing lasting change in both the mind and physical body. As a sound healing modality, bowls are regarded as energy/vibrational medicine … similar to acupressure, reiki … in that energy is being moved. I happen to move it with the power of sound. Blockages are released and a balanced free flow of Life energy is restored. I believe that any movement away from dis-ease is a movement towards health.
Bowl sessions can be used as an occasional ‘tune-up’ (ha!) … helping to bring balance to the physical, emotional & mental bodies. The most common thing I see bowls being used for right now is in stress reduction. A bowl session is like a complete TIME OUT from all that is OUT THERE. Sessions help to balance emotional issues such as depression, fatigue, anger, lonliness, fear. Sessions can be used for pain management — I have had monthly sessions at two Cancer Centers. One of my cancer patients said, “It’s like getting 8 hours of sleep in 1 hour!”
And for some, bowls provide the backdrop for unique personal experiences. Many reports of visual images, pulsating colors, shapes/symbols. Some have out-of-body-experiences. Some just come with a question/concern, and then ‘see’ what comes up as a possible solution.
But no matter what your personal purpose may be … a bowl session provides a feeling of deep relaxation, peace and a connectedness to a place out of our ‘normal’ waking consciousness. I offer a sonic tapestry for you to ‘weave’ your own unique experience. So come … relax into the edgeless energy of YOU ….
