Everything in our physical world, each structure and form, carries a unique vibration, or tone. This vibration determines the nature and essence of that form. When we experience physical illness or energetic imbalance, it is a sign that, at some level, there is a disharmony in the resonance between the vibrational levels in the energy field.
Energy healing with sound seeks to bring in a harmonious resonance (in this case, with singing bowls and bells) to help re-align disharmonious frequencies and restore balance once again. This new state of harmony can then promote healing at the physical level, as deep stress is neutralized in cells and organs, enabling them to return to a healthy state.
So how does the resonance created by the Tibetan singing bowls and bells work? The resonance created by bowls and bells works directly on the energy field. When played by striking, as with bells, the vibrations act more on the chakras while, when played by rubbing the rim, as with the bowls, they act more on the overall aura.
The resonant tones of Singing Bowls & Bells have also been shown to affect brainwave frequencies, shifting brainwaves from the heavy, depressed Delta & Theta waves, which should normally be found only during sleep and dream states, to the more alert and uplifted Alpha & Beta waves of mental clarity, focus and attentive relaxation.
At the physical level, they act directly through the nervous system. Higher frequency tones generally resonate in the brain and affect cognitive functions, such as thinking, spatial perception, and memory.
The singing bowls are wonderful for clearing the energetic space in your home. Going from room to room, the tones ring out and you literally feel the air changing, the rooms seem lighter and more spacious.
I remember the first time I used a singing bowl, I felt as if my whole body quivered and vibrated matching the tone of the bowl. I felt my head clear and my ears literally popped. I had been suffering from nasal congestion and a headache. The minute I started to play the singing bowl, my symptoms disappeared very quickly. Intuitively I had hit the right note.
