Sound Healing

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

The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe. - Hazrat Inayat Khan 1882-1927

Tibetan Singing Bells

& Dorjes:

Large, Medium & Small

 

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

Thai Percussion Frogs:

Large,Medium,

Small-Medium,Small,Mini

 

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

Nepalese Gongs

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

TingShas or Tunche Cymbals

The sound is like a summons bringing you to the present moment.

Therefore  they are often used to start or end a meditation  or yoga session. School teachers use these to bring wandering minds back to the here & now too.

The pure & purifying sound will align your Chakras & repair holes in your ethereal body. The sound helps to form a new network of connecting threads that repair holes rapidly.

By playing the tingshas in the four corners of a room, the energy present in the room is dissolved in the vibration of sound & the room is once more open & neutral

People say that the soul, on hearing the song of creation, entered the body but in reality, the soul itself was the song....Hafiz  1805-1872
