Resonance Sound Healing with Singing Bowls
A singing bowl session can be added to your massage or can be experienced as a session all by itself, included can be Reiki hands on healing and gentle guided meditation.
Your session will start with you laying comfortably on a Japanese floor mat, your therapist will play singing bowls in various tones to balance and bring back into proper resonance the chakras (energy centers) of your entire body. You will be guided into deeper breathing with audible cues by your therapist. During and after your session you can expect to feel calmer, more in tune with self and feel a greater sense of inner connection.
So why do healing bowls work so well for healing?:
It starts with resonance; all things begin with a single resonance. But, what is resonance? Everything in our universe is in a constant state of vibration and the frequency and the speed that an object or being naturally vibrates at is called ‘resonance’.
If we now know that everything has a resonant frequency, then in relation to the human form, our bones, organs and the chakras all possess a different resonant frequency, and hold their own form of consciousness. And so, if one part of the body isn’t working optimally or feeling good, it would mean the vibration is out of tune, so to speak. We call it having ‘dis-ease’. When a body is healthy, every cell, every organ, is creating a harmonious resonance with the entire being.
Vibrational medicine is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterised by a blockage in the channels on some level. Sound and light resonance can break-up, dissolve, and release these blockages. A present-day example of this is the high intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) procedure, which aims to kill cancer cells with high-frequency sound waves.
In the Tibetan culture, bells, chimes, metal bowls and chanting are the foundation to spiritual practice and the belief system. Native Americans and Aboriginal leaders and shamans use vocal toning and the repeated creative rhythm from instruments made from nature to purify and balance the spirit. In Ancient Egypt, the priests knew how to use vowel sounds to connect to their energy centres (or ‘chakras’ in Sanskrit), introducing the theory of a direct sound resonance relationship to specific parts of the body.
Quartz crystal singing bowls, along with other forms of sound therapy, purport many benefits, including: stress release; shock or trauma release; creative and conscious expansion; memory and intuition enhancement; inner and outer alignment awakening; aura cleansing, boosting and balancing; and an increase in our abilities to love, forgive, trust, heal and grow.
To go even deeper, if we understand that each part of a body breaks down into a sound (a note), a colour and a speed, then we can begin to discuss the chakra system and how singing bowl-therapies connect to the physical and non-physical aspects of our identity. We have seven main chakras, and each chakra is designated specific physical parts of the body such as organs, glands and adrenals, as well as emotional parts, mental patterns and spiritual awareness. Each chakra comes with its own related resonance, colour, intention and note, and can act as a map for our own inner harmonic or dis-harmonic resonance.
Chakras, their colours and notes
Root Chakra: Red, C Note
Sacral Chakra: Orange, D Note
Solar Plexus: Yellow, E Note,
Heart Chakra: Green, F Note,
Throat Chakra: Blue, G Note,
Third Eye: Indigo, A Note,
Crown: Purple, B Note.
So, when a quartz crystal singing bowl that is moulded to make the F note is played, the note it emits will connect directly to the heart chakra. The sound will be the purest form of that resonant frequency and will enter the heart chakra within the body (and the connected physical, mental and emotional patterns) and heal and awaken, as well as release the blockages, stored energy, ailments etc. Each quartz crystal singing bowl’s sound will reshape and harmonise the resonance of the targeted chakra within the body.
We are sound, we are resonance, we are energy. We can heal ourselves through sound, through pure tones. We can release old patterns, beliefs, physical pains, disease and depression – all forms of ailments through re-balancing our inner resonance, which ultimately effects and directs our physical being.
