Sound healing has been around for thousands of years, and in all of the ancient cultures around the world. Yet in our modern culture, those powerful tools have been all but forgotten.
My first experience with Sound Healing
I was introduced to sound healing with crystal singing bowls about twelve years ago, when a friend of mine brought her singing bowls to a gathering. She had bowls of varying sizes and tones. She started to play them and it was mesmerizing. A few of us moved to the floor and sprawled out to be closer to the sound.
I could feel the vibrations move through me. Not like you feel the bass when the speakers are really loud, but these sound waves were traveling through my entire body, through my bones, through my tissues from head to toe and everywhere in between. I had never felt anything like it.
The sounds were also swirling around in my head, my thoughts quieted as all I could hear were the soothing tones of the bowls. Then I noticed my awareness floating away from my body and my physical surroundings, and entering a dreamlike state. Colors and lights moved in and out of my inner “vision”, images and short vignettes of seemingly random scenes appeared in my consciousness and then as quickly vanished. Emotions would emerge and dissipate, like clouds floating through the sky. It was transcendent and difficult to put into words. I felt calmer and more at peace than ever before.
When the sound stopped, my body continued to buzz with energy and yet didn’t want to move. I knew something profound had happened. These crystal singing bowls were something special. It was like a part of me recognized that they were and would be important to me, and that this experience was something to pay attention to. They awakened a part of me that had not been touched in a very long time. A spark had been lit.
Using Sound Healing for Healing
I found myself ordering a crystal singing bowl for myself. I used it for my own healing and also began adding it to the healing sessions of my clients. The results were just as powerful and profound for my clients as it had been for me. The sound waves of these bowls penetrated deeply onto the body, helping it to relax and release any conscious or unconscious holdings in a gentle and effortless way.
The effects of the sound healing work to heal on all levels…body, mind, emotions, spirit and energy field. The sound waves assist in healing the physical body as it helps to let go of stress and tension, increases the flow of circulation and nerve conduction, and assists the body to release and clear toxins. It also brings deep healing to the emotions, allowing them to come to the surface where they can gently and easily be released without reliving the old trauma. It is also good at recharging and restoring the energy field, as I mentioned when I felt myself buzzing with energy.
The incredible crystal singing bowls
The quartz crystal that the bowls are made of came from deep in the earth. I don’t know how long they were in the earth before they were “found”, but I believe they carry vast wisdom and power. And even though they come from the earth, the sounds they create are ethereal and celestial, thus connecting heaven and earth, and forming a strong flow of energy between the two. Providing grounding as well as connection to spirit, it is an indescribable experience.
In meditation, the sound of the singing bowls help not only to quiet the mind, but to access other information from your subconscious, your higher self, your spirit team, and more. These messages can provide guidance, encouragement, validation and inspiration. It also helps to tap into the infinite flow of the universe, for manifestation, as well as bringing in the energy needed for healing, nourishing, and replenishing.
I invite you to listen to a sound healing meditation using crystal singing bowls. Take some time to notice how it affects you. What do you feel, see, hear, sense and know during the meditation and also afterwards? You may be surprised by all that can happen just by listening and allowing the magic to happen.
