The Healing Power Of Sound Meditation

Singing bowls are a type of bell that vibrates and produces a rich, deep tone when played. Also known as Singing bowls or Himalayan bowls.

Some people use the bowls in combination with other healing practices, such as meditation and deep breathing. The sounds generated by Singing Bowls are a type of energy medicine that promote healing from stress disorders, pain, depression, and most forms of disease.

If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.

Through listening to Singing Bowls one’s internal dialogue, the ’inner critic’ is quietened. Their sound synchronizes brain waves and enhances awareness of the mind/body connection.

All parts of your body possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ, or another part of the body, is vibrating “out of tune” or non-harmoniously, it is called “disease”. A body is in a healthy state when each cell and each organ resonate in harmony with the whole being.

Not only do the vibrations produced by the bowls balance the Chakra system, but also help to harmonize each and every cell in the person’s body, as well as having a soothing, hypnotic effect on the brain, slowing down the brain waves inducing a deep meditative state and allowing access to the sub-conscious mind.

The science behind this method is slowly being uncovered in modern medicine and is starting to measure as well as validate its ability to heal our body, mind, and soul.
