Simply, this involves using sound vibrations to relax your mind and body. Sound can shift frequencies from low energy of guilt and fear to higher vibrations of love and joy. Sound healing is the use of sacred instruments or voice to release energetic blockages inducing a state of ease and harmony in the body. While there are many types of sound therapy, all of them produce vibrations that alter your brain waves.
Malbert Lee, a Hong Kong-based Crystal Bowl and Gong Master, says vibrations are especially useful for healing the body. “The adult body is 75% water, and water is a great conductor for sound vibration,” he notes.
When vibrations travel through the body, they promote circulation, energy flow, and rejuvenation. The frequency of the sound synchronizes with the brainwaves and activates de-stress responses in the body.
Sound healing synchronizes brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation, helping to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the cells in our bodies
The effects of crystal sound bowls are immediate:
Everyone can benefit from crystal bowl sound bath. Most of us have only a small amount of pure, clear, healing sound in our lives. Our ears no longer get a daily exposure to running streams, bird songs, and the rustling leaves in the forest.
We are too often inside, with this beautiful natural music replaced by the hum of computers, the whoosh of the air conditioner, and the high-pitched whine of fluorescent lights. This is the opposite of healing sound! We grow accustomed to tuning out these noises, along with construction, traffic, crowds, and commercials, so that they don’t intrude into our space.
Since we don’t have “earlids” to close, we shut the sound out with our minds, which can get to be an unhealthy habit that extends to tuning out beneficial sound, too.
The pure sonic waves that ring from the singing quartz crystal bowls wake up our ability to listen and HEAR. Hearing occurs with more than our ears. Sound is vibration, and that vibration moves throughout our body. With the "singing" quartz crystal or Tibetan bowls, we FEEL the sound as much as we take it in with our ears. The singing bowls create a totally relaxed and meditative feeling – the ultimate in meditation music!
