Healing Sounds, Ritual Objects
& Small Deities
Sound healing synchronizes brain waves to achieve profound states of relaxation, helping to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the cells in our bodies. Sound Therapy is not new. The Greeks used music to heal mental disorders.
“To heal is to make sound,” says Gong Master Martha Collard . “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.”
Some of the benefits of sound therapy include: Lower Stress Levels, Fewer Mood Swings, Lower Blood
Pressure,Lower Cholesterol, Improve Sleep...from Destination Deluxe

Tibetan Singing Dril Bhu & Dorje
Please use the Dorje,in Tibetan or Vajra,in Sanskrit to hold the intention of your prayer or mediation.
It is considered to be inseparable from the bell called Dril Bhu in Tibetan or Ghanta in Sanskrit. When used together,they help you reach Enlightenment.The Dorje is the symbol of the indestructible, the male principle, the means of salvation. The Dril Bhu is the symbol of the void,the female principal, wisdom. When these two come together, an inner mystical unity is achieved.
Hold the Dorge in your right hand & the Dril Bhu in the left hand.The Dorje was also used by Tibetan monks to close their cloaks, thus keeping it handy for use.The monk would use the Dorje in the infinity eight pattern to send the intention of the prayer out to the universe & back.
You may then use the stick to invite the bell to sing on the bottom rim, like a singing bowl. The crystal clear sound clears Chakras & dispels any negative energy in your person, space or objects . The size of the bell dictates what frequency the bell will sound.
Large: sounding the deepest grounding your energy tin your Root Chakra
Middle :sounding a frequency that suits your Heart & Throat Chakras
Small: sounding a frequency that suits your Third Crown & Crown Chakras
You may find yourself attracted to the bell you need in this moment while many prefer to have all three bells for use in the healing arts.
Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony. - Leonardo da Vinci 1451-1519
Hand Carved Thai Percussion Frogs
Percussion Frogs truly sound like frogs when you drag the stick over the ridges on their backs with the thick end of the sticks staring at the back feet & coming forward to the mouth.
They are also used in drumming circles & bands by hitting the stick under the throat.
These little critters bring smiles to all from
age 1 to 99 !
They come in five sizes: Large, Medium,
Small -Medium, Small & Mini.
The Mini sounds like a tree frog. The large sounds like a bull frog...with variations in between. It is fun to have them all, then a group can create a lovely song.
"Farewell" said the fox."This is my secret, it is very simple. You can only see well with your heart. The essence of things is invisible to the eyes"...The Little Prince 1943
Tibetan Singing Bowls
These Tibetan Singing Bowls are made of Seven Precious Metals...One for Each of the planets as known in earlier times:
Gold for the Sun,Silver for the Moon,Copper for Venus,Tin for Jupiter,Mercury for Mercury,Iron for Mars,Lead for Saturn
All of these metals create a sound 7 together these sounds produce the exceptional singing sound of the bowl. The actual proportions of the metals vary in each bowl.
Many singing bowls were sacrificial dishes,common in Tibetan monasteries. The fact that they have a special sound is because a gift offered in a sacrificial dish must be harmonious in every respect.
Singing bowls have been used in Tibetan culture since the 12th century. These metal bowls come in different sizes and each one produces a deep sound that relaxes and heals the mind. Because each bowl produces a unique vibration that works on separate parts of the brain, different sized bowls are often used together. Of course, they can also work on different parts of the body. Bowls elicit a light dream state, and can be placed on the body to promote healing.
“Vibrations move through water in the body,” says Dr Buathon Thienarrom, a Thai wellness practitioner who offers sound healing with Tibetan singing bowls. “When this happens, it helps stimulate circulation to allow muscle relaxation and improve lymphatic flow.” This particular type of sound healing has been found to reduce stress, anger, depression, and fatigue.
To invite a bowl to sing, either hold the bowl on your flat palm or on your finger tips. I like to tap the bowl lightly on the side with the stick to initiate the resonance. Then rub the stick with firm even pressure around the rim without skipping while you build the sound to where you like it. Have patience & remember to rub the stick firmly & evenly.
Harmony sinks deep into the recesses of the soul and takes its strongest hold there, bringing grace also to the body & mind as well. Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order… - Plato 429-347 BC

Tibetan Singing Bowl
This bowl is a bronze bowl
with the Mantra:
Om Mani Padme Hum

Pewter Singing Bowls from India
The Pewter Bowls are relatively new. They are very easy to use...very popular with those who find it hard to get a seven metal bowl to sing. They will lose a little color with use but this has not been a problem for those have fallen in love with their vibrational sound.
Gongs have been used as a form of sound healing since around 4,000 B.C. Now, they’re used in gong baths. This is a style of meditation where the practitioner creates different tones and patterns with the gongs to produce vibrations that work on the mind-body connection. Plus, it works fast.
“The gong has stronger vibrations and much richer sounds because of its size and structure,” says Lee. “The sound can put you in a deeply relaxed and meditative theta state in as quickly as 60 to 90 seconds.”
Gong baths are great for clearing fears or emotional blocks and improving mental clarity, leaving you transformed on a physical as well as mental level.
“The sound wave passing through the body stimulates red blood cells, and opens up the blood supply to all organs and throughout the body,” adds Collard. “Gongs also stimulate the limbic system, forcing your muscles to relax. The sound of a gong is heard through the ears, passing through the auditory nerve, then the vagus nerve, stimulating every organ in the body. All your organs operate more effectively especially your liver and kidneys. You wake feeling refreshed and invigorated"...from Destination Deluxe
