When I was twenty-one, somebody special gifted me a Tibetans Singing Bowl from their recent travels. In deep belief that we stumble upon knowledge exactly when we are supposed to, I never took the time to use or understand its many healing modalities and therapies. It served as a bowl for fruit, salt, dinner parties, and something beautiful in my space.
One day I felt drawn to it. I decided to sound it before a meditation without understanding anything about it. And my very first use resulted in a mediation where I reached a deeper meditative state much quicker, had incredible insight come to me, and felt even more relaxed than I do in normal mediation. This meditation felt supercharged - if you will.
I now sound it to begin a meditation, and to end one as well. I also sound it throughout the day when I feel my nervous system is tight, my vibes are low, or directly before a session. Here are six reasons why you might be interested in bringing one of these into your sacred space.
Tibetan Singing Bowl
a quick guide
Tibetan Singing Bowls are a 2,500 year old ancient technology that creates a pulsing tone (at 7-8 Hertz cycles per second), which stimulates the upper end of the theta brainwave. This activates our deeper intelligence, creativity, and self-healing.
Theta brainwave frequencies induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition.
TSB sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex inhibiting the stress or pain response.
TSB synchronizes brainwaves and enhances awareness of the mind/body connection (said to quiet the ‘inner critic’).
TSB restores and optimizes the flow of energy in the parts of the body where flow is hindered.
TSB naturally cause chakras to self-correct due to hitting each tone associated to each of the seven chakras.
