My journey with sound healing started out with an affinity for playing music as a kid (flute, oboe, piccolo, djembe and eventually the guitar). In my early 20s, I attended my first vibrational or sound healing “bath.” I was both curious and skeptical, but after that hour I drove home in complete shock and awe. I was so moved by how much release and clarity I experienced after that, that I knew sound healing was something I would end up pursuing.
As I got deeper into my meditation practice, I navigated my way through a diverse range of sound bath meditations -the Tibetan singing bowls, the gong, the tuning forks and pyramids, and eventually I felt a distinct pull towards the quartz crystal singing bowls. The first time I heard a full Chakra singing bowl meditation, it was like standing next to the sun’s warmth- a true and pure feeling of deep bliss and connection.
Almost like ascension…
The crystal singing bowls are wholly unique. They are attuned to the Chakra system, each conveying their own note, ideally to a perfect pitch of 432 Hz, (Hertz or electromagnetic waves) which is the attunement to which our DNA replicates.
Sound intriguing? Here’s 3 major benefits of crystal singing bowls:
1. Reduce Stress, Anxiety and Worry
The singing bowls have an amazing way of calming our senses, which allows our parasympathetic nervous system to kick in and activate healing on a deep level. It aligns our circulatory, muscular and digestive systems as well. Because of the calming effects of the bowls themselves, the body works in harmony to align for the highest good of it’s internal needs, providing a great deal of ease to the listener.
2. Balance Your Chakras
Sounds is carried on electromagnetic wavelengths. Vibrational sound enters our physical bodies on a molecular level that mirrors that of the quartz crystalline structure. The waves of sounds that are created align with the frequencies within the Chakra system based on the note and vibration being played. It is not uncommon to feel the notes reverberating through that particular Chakra center in your physical body during a meditation.
3. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
The molecular flow and encouraged organization that is infused into your cells during the crystal singing bowl meditation tells your body that you are safe, secure, and ready for rest. Studies are now showing that it can even transform dysrhythmic cell motion, reversing the effects of cells mutating into potentially cancerous cells in the body.
