“Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony.” – Leonardo da Vinci, Notebooks
Sounds sing to me today. This morning, I thought I heard a bell ringing at construction next door. Metal clanging sounded melodic. Walking back to my car after Pilates, wind chimes drew me into their deep tone. At the studio, I meditated to music with Tibetan Singing bowls. I could feel their vibration radiating throughout my body. The hypnotic effect pulled me into a peaceful meditation.
There’s actually a reason for this effect and why singing bowls are used for healing. In eastern cultures, illness is thought of as a manifestation of disharmony within the body. Sound and vibration bring a deep sense of peace, releasing tension and blocked energy, balancing chakras / energy centers in the body helping restore harmony. The vibrational effect of gongs and singing bowls comes from a natural phenomenon known as entrainment – entraining or synchronizing the body to a certain sound. Entrainment occurs when powerful vibrations of one object actually change less powerful vibrations of another object.
If you’re ready to feel healing energy from these singing bowls, sit in a comfortable position, take a few breaths in releasing each one fully, and enjoy this 20 minute peaceful meditation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXcw1VXlRRE
