Chakras are centers of energy located on the midline of the body.  There are 7 main chakras … each corresponding to a different life function.  They are generally known as:


1st Chakra (Root/red) – survival

2nd Chakra (Sacral/orange) – creative

3rd Chakra (Solar Plexus/yellow) – power

4th Chakra (Heart/green) – love

5th Chakra (Throat/blue) – expression

6th Chakra (3rd Eye/indigo) – intuition

7th Chakra (Crown/violet) – spiritual connection

The Chakra System is very interesting, because it reflects the vibrational level of you … both your inner and outer worlds.   When chakra energy is balanced, it is reflected in a more balanced life physically, emotionally & spiritually.  Each chakra also corresponds to a different body area, neural network, organ system, vibration, color – and a different musical note or frequency:

1st Chakra – Note C – skeletal/spine

2nd Chakra – Note D – reproduction/bladder

3rd Chakra – Note E – stomach/liver

4th Chakra – Note F – heart/circulation

5th Chakra – Note G – lungs/throat

6th Chakra – Note A – sinus/lower brain

7th Chakra – Note B – nerves/upper brain

Everything vibrates … and where there is vibration … there is sound.  Every atom, molecule, cell, gland and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound and has a ‘vibration signature’ which reflects your emotional and physical health.

When an organ or body part is healthy, it creates a natural resonant frequency in harmony with the rest of the body.  Basically … we emit sound.  And just as a musical instrument can go out of tune with use, so can our bodies – creating disharmony & dis-ease.

So how do Singing Bowls come into the picture?

Singing Bowls can help balance the Chakra energy system.   Each crystal bowl is specifically tuned to a chakra frequency.  When singing bowls are played, and particular sound frequencies are projected into a dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns can be restored.

Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems.  Dis-harmony within the body can be restructured by sound.

The sounds from singing bowls are calming and induce a sense of peacefulness … it is a relaxation that goes beyond the physical body.  The tones of each chakra bowl will permeate your system – resonating your essence – so that inner chaos, conflict, and dissonance seem almost immediately to be transformed into harmony.

“Sound enters the healing equation from several directions:
It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects;
it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically;
it may calm the mind and therefore the body;
or it may have emotional effects,
which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides,
which in turn help to regulate the immune system
–the healer within.”

The goal of music therapy is to reduce stress and pain, promote deep relaxation, develop self-awareness and creativity.  Steven Halpern, a composer of healing music said:

“In my opinion, certain music heals by assisting the body to come into its natural state of balance and harmony.  Also, the body heals itself most effectively in a state of deep relaxation.“

Sound-Energy1 Regular listening to crystal singing bowls is a powerful, but gentle, way to balance the hemispheres of the brain, tune and re-harmonize the molecular structure, and strengthen the mind, body and natural immune defense system.  They help radiate out negative energy and stress which restrict our body’s ability to function at its fullest potential.

Imagine being completely immersed within soothing, deeply nourishing, healing and empowering sound vibrations resonating from quartz crystal singing bowls.  Sound is a uniquely potent form of energy that entrains us to the vibrations of our own essence and that of the universe.  What do you think your sound is like?

I came across this link to a Dr. Oz program on the Chakra System.  It gives a really good initial grasp on what each chakra level represents.  Please give it a quick look … the parts are short & you really need only watch the first two!

I hope to see you soon at one of my sessions!
