CRYSTAL SINGING BOWLS
I love Crystal Singing Bowls! It is amazing to me how their tones can transform the heart and transport the spirit. My love affair began 25 years ago when I first heard these magical bowls at a meditation group. Today I have my own collection and have play for schools, medical settings, churches, weddings and funerals. To watch faces light up when they first hear the bowls is always a treat for me. After listening, the response is usually “I feel so relaxed, what an amazing experience”. I feel honored to share these sacred vibrations in our world.
What they are made of?
Crystal Singing Bowls are made of 99% pure quartz which is a natural occurring element. This powdered quartz is heated to about 4000 degrees in a centrifugal mold. I always picture cotton candy being made! Each bowl is then tested with digital technology to identify its sound and musical note. The notes, C, D, E, F, G, A, B correspond with one’s energy centers or chakras.
How do they work?
Scientific explanation: The cells of the human body have a natural geometrical relationship to the structure of quartz crystals. Being made up of crystalline structures, including our DNA, blood, bones, and the crystal-colloidal liquid of the brain, we align with crystal inherent structure. With crystal sound affecting the body and, in particular, the brain, the resonance relays a wave that allows consciousness to travel into altered states of awareness. Endorphins and other hormones are naturally released and science shows us that these neuro-chemicals can empower the will to overcome limitations, reduce pain, and develop creativity. It has actually been measured; singing bowls produce a wave pattern similar to alpha waves of the brain and act as a tool to help us access our own healing abilities.
Crystal bowls, containing the qualities of amplification, storage, transfer, and transformation, are powerful tools in effecting change in one’s life. It is important to approach the use of the bowls with a reverence for the potential contained in combining intention with the properties of crystal.
Easy to understand explanation:
Famous formula by Jonathan Goldman:
Frequency + Intent = Healing
Definition of Healing
Healing is the state of coming into balance and harmony with our highest purpose. It is the process of restoring to health, soundness and spiritual wholeness. Healing =Wholeness
Definition of Intention
Intent is the energy behind sound. As thought forms are energy, the intention with which one approaches healing work is of utmost importance. Intention is a clearly formed thought, like a prayer, and is the real healer.
What is frequency?
At a very basic level frequency is a wave of vibration. A proven fact is that EVERYTHING vibrates, from the stars and galaxies to the chair you are sitting on. If everything vibrates then everything creates sound. Sound is the energy that can assist profound changes at a spiritual level as well as physical and emotional level.
Combining the power of sound with the power of crystal is not anything new. During ancient times of Atlantis and Egypt sacred sounds were used to resonate with energy centers, the Chakras. Ancient priests used their voices with vowel sounds to awaken their centers and now, today, people are learning and using these old practices. Prophesy says that the tones created from crystal will be a source for healing in the New Age. Both Edgar Cayce (the Sleeping Prophet) and Rudolf Steiner (Austrian philosopher) predicted the use of ‘crystal sounds’ for healing during our times!
