Everything in our Universe is made purely of vibrations, resonating with its own signature frequency. Ancient religions and modern sciences agree that our Reality is an ocean of living energy, and that all matter (such as a human being) is simply interpenetrating waves of energy which have crystallized into form and structure. This primordial life force energy is called by many names in different cultures – AUM (OM), Prana, Chi, Ki, Mana, Baraka, Spirit, or Quantum Energy (as the new physics label it). The Crystal Bowls work directly with this universal energy and channel it into the body to enliven our entire being! Through this life-force energy, they can help us remember our connection with Source and allow us access to the unlimited healing energy from within.
Vibrational sound touches our bodies on a molecular and crystalline level. The body is a network of vibrational fields and energy currents. Each individual resonates at his or her own vibration. Sound is an acoustical wave while color is an electromagnetic wave. The colors of the rainbow correspond to a specific musical note in the same way that each chakra of the body correlates with a specific tone and color. Although there is a tone and color that corresponds to each of the chakra centers, each part affects the totality. This is important to know since each crystal bowl will affect the whole body. You may feel the effects in one section of your body more deeply, but the vibrational sound will also travel throughout your entire energy field. The human body and the entire earth are made up of energy, vibrating at different frequencies. When out of rhythm, disease and disharmony result. Vibrational sound healing addresses these imbalances or blockages of the energy channels.
The notes of the crystal bowls are tuned to specific vibrational frequencies (notes) found within the human body. So when the sound moves through the atmosphere and touches us, it causes our cells to move in different directions at a different speed, in rhythm with the sound wave. This puts us in harmony with the sound wave. The sound penetrates into our very cells and re-balances them through oscillation and resonance. Hearing is not required for benefiting from these healing properties. Studies have shown that sound has a direct impact on the mental processes, muscles, nervous system, (heartbeat, pulse) digestive system and circulatory system. Alignment with the tones of the Singing Crystal Bowls is one of the most dynamic forms of sound healing found today.
“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.”
Crystal bowl therapy helps to balance the chakra system and re-energize the auric field. Healing is then made possible on all levels. Each individual is unique as to which energy center(s) require balancing, so you may find yourself drawn to different tones each time you experience them. Body and Energy work practitioners have found that sessions with clients are dramatically more effective with the addition of crystal sound therapy. Clients immediately go into a state of full receptivity and relaxation. This allows the practitioner to go deeper and more easily reach underlying issues.
