THE MIRACULOUS BOWLS FROM TIBET
The singing bowls of Tibet, have you ever heard them? We at Tuntrelife are just blown away by the intuitive wisdom of the ancient Tibetan practices, and the first experience with them still vibrates deep within. It is like waking up from a dream and remembering something ancient, like something that has been long forgotten, but it is now time to be integrated into the physical body, and also the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Its sound is deeply healing in our experience.
The history of sound healing is very old. The exact history is unclear, but some believe that the Aboriginals in Australia may have been playing their didgeridoos near the sick for up to 40,000 years. Shamans chanted and played their drums to heal and the Druids were known to stand around a sick person and do group chants. The history of Tibetan Singing bowls is a long and mysterious one as explained in this post.
SOME HISTORY ABOUT THE SINGING BOWLS
In Tibet, the tradition and the existence of the of singing bowls date back to approximately 500 B.C. It is believed that the tradition came from India to Tibet, at the time when the teachings of the Buddha first arrived, and it is connected to the teachings of the great tantric masters too. If you would like to buy a singing bowl for yourself, make sure the sound is of the purest quality, there are many lesser copies being made, and the harmony of its sound is what distinguishes a good bowl from a bad one. Of course, when it comes to healing the chakras, you would want to make sure that the sound is exquisite. The singing bowls are handmade and very expensive. The traditional Moon Light bowls are actually made under the light of the full moon, making it a treasured and cherished object. Always approach the singing bowl respectfully, they are energy healing tools and should be treated carefully like something precious.
SEXUAL HEALING POWER
The sound produced from the singing bowls invokes a deeply relaxing state, and it vibrates in all the chakras. It is so intense it will for many feel orgasmic. The sexual healing energy through the kundalini is waking up from the root chakra. It can be quite overwhelming the first time. The sound healing from the singing bowls is a wonderful tool to set the stage for some deep meditative states, even for those inexperienced with meditation. The beauty of this type of meditation is that it can provide results without having to learn a disciplined form of meditation. The use of the bowls allows anyone to do it. The ultimate goal in any meditation practice should always be to reach one’s fullest potential, to become an enlightened soul. The singing bowls are becoming increasingly popular as a meditation tool, simply because they really work and people love how the singing bowls make them feel. As the sexual healing energy starts to flow harmoniously, it will create states of bliss and ecstasy that can last for hours and even days after the meditation. This ecstatic state of bliss is our birthright, and when all of humanity reach this state, there can be no more separation and war. You will also find that the Tibetan singing bowls are a great tool for stress reduction, and the relaxed states induced through the vibration brings about the chakra balancing and chakra upgrade through its restorative power. Research has shown that participation in a singing bowl meditation may help prevent tension, anger, fatigue, and depressed mood. Singing bowls have also shown the capacity to lower blood pressure and heart rate, providing potential benefits to cardiovascular health.
THE UNIVERSAL SOUND OF THE AUM
As you play the bells it normally will cause an immediate centering effect where you feel balanced. The tones set up a “frequency following response” that creates a balancing where the two brain hemispheres synchronize. As the sound resonates in our bodies, it sends out ripples of energy. Sound is energy vibrations, and in the universe, everything is energy. The singing bowls sound vibration is said to be equal to the sound of the universe, and it puts you into contact with your own inner universe as well as your own outer universe. It brings us back to oneness, our true nature, where we are all one.
THE ANCIENTS KNEW THIS HEALING POWER
This is immense healing power, it resonates so deep into the body, no massage can ever penetrate this deep into your tissues. Every cell in your body sings and dances in the frequency of its sound. Truly powerful healing on every level. It will ground you, and help with help balance physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues. The vibration of sound finds its way through the cells and tissues and will help restore even down to a DNA level. It vibrates so strong it has the power to shatter and break up energy patterns, old conditionings, thought forms, feeling of being stuck, and rigidity. These will break up and release, and in this way resolve themselves and melt away. The healing power of sound is being understood more and more by the scientific community as well, and the scientific community is even trying to understand how sound healing can affect and even change the DNA of the human body.
VIBRATIONS STIR OUR BODIES
We at Tuntrelife are blown away by the effects sound healing has on our bodies, it deepens the sexual energy further and resonates strongly within every chakra. With the strong vibration of sound your body will open up so strongly and it will be using your sexual energy to heal. This is true for sound healing of the chakras, but we at Tuntrelife have also felt the healing power of doing chakra dance connecting to each and every chakra individually through the dance. The dance then changes character according to what chakra you are presently focusing on. Dancing while focusing on healing the sacral chakra will open one up to the watery world of our feelings. Stuck energies, unresolved emotions that hold us back from fully thriving, so that unexpressed emotions are released, and the hurts and pains from long ago, that we might have held on to for years, can now be dissolved. We can finally let go of what no longer serves us. It is an overwhelming feeling of freedom that follows after the release. The sacral chakra holds a feminine vibration, and it is from here we can create and manifest. The same release is felt in the powerful Tibetan bowls, while they vibrate their sound healing it shatters stuck energies of the chakras.
IN THE WISE WORDS OF DR. JOE DISPENZA
“The body doesn’t know the difference between an experience and a thought, you can literally change your biology, neuro-circuitry, chemistry, hormones and genes, simply by having an inner event.”
