Crystal Bowls & Tibetan Singing Bowls

Crystal Bowls & Tibetan Singing Bowls have an extraordinary healing effect
on the physical, mental, emotional & spiritual aspects of a person,
bringing all round healing on a deep level.
The unique vibrational frequencies of each bowl brings
a specific healing energy to each individual.
Healing with sacred bowls focuses on treating the main 8 chakras of the body,
to bring clarity, healing and balance to these energy centres.
Chakras are vortices of energy, which are the energy centres of our being.
They rotate continuously, distributing energy evenly around the body,
keeping one perfectly balanced & energised.
When chakras are out of sync, or out of balance,
blockages occur which prevents a free flow of the body’s energy,
resulting in illness.
The correlating note for each chakra is shown below. If you are depleted of energy of have blockages in any of these areas,
a corresponding bowl will be used for maximum healing benefits.
However, if a bowl is used with a note that you most resonate with,
all chakras will benefit, bringing all round healing. T

The notes relating to each of the eight main chakras are:
Base (Root) Chakra C
The Sacral (Spleen) Chakra D
The Solar Plexus Chakra E
The Heart Chakra F
The Thymus Chakra F#
The Throat Chakra G
The Third Eye Chakra A
The Crown Chakra B

Healing with Crystals and Gemstones
Crystals have been used in healing for thousands of years.
Each crystal has its own vibrational frequency which can work on our own
vibrations to tone and balance the chakras.
Chakras are wheels of energy situated at various points of the `body’.
Not all chakras are situated on the physical body,
many are found in the etheric layers of the aura.
It is said that there are 150 chakras in all.
In the tables below I have listed 11 of most important chakras,
which include the 7 most commonly known Kundalini Chakras
and a further 4 which are found on the Hara line.
Each chakra has an associated crystal or gemstone,
depending on the colour and vibration.

AUM, OM (AUMEN, AMEN)

AUM is an ancient and primal sound whose origins in literature
can be traced back to 600 BCE to Vedanta, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.
Over countless millennia AUM has been used as a preparation for meditation,
as a mantra, a way of detaching from restless thinking and a vehicle for transcending the body, mind and intellect.
Basic Technique
Sit upright on the floor with legs crossed or sit upright in a chair
with feet flat on the floor and thighs parallel to the floor.
Keep the spine and neck aligned with the head held up and facing forward.
Avoid using a backrest if possible. Rest the hands, f
acing up or down, in the lap or on the thighs.
Instruction style 1
Relax the mouth keeping the lips closed and the teeth slightly apart. Inhale through the nose filling the lungs gently from bottom to top. Relax the muscles of the jaw so that the jaw and the lips open effortlessly. Keeping the throat relaxed, exhale slowly to produce a gentle ‘Ahhh’ while closing the jaw and lips. When the lips are closed leave the teeth slightly apart. Keep the tongue relaxed from start to end. Pause and abide in your silence.
In the beginning stages always check for needless tension and relax. Repeat from the start.
Instruction style 2
Gently take a deep breath. Let the mouth open naturally. Relax the throat and say ‘Ahhh’ while allowing the mouth to close slowly. Allow the sound to change naturally as the mouth closes. The sound will change naturally from ‘A’ to ‘U’ to ‘M’.
When the lips touch keep the teeth gently apart. The tongue is not needed for this so keep the tongue relaxed. Pause, abide in your silence, and relax more deeply.
Repeat from the start.
Vocalising with the mouth open produces the primal ‘A’; vocalising with the mouth slightly open produces the primal ‘U’; vocalising with the mouth closed produces the primal ‘M’.
Being a primal (fundamental, original) sound the vocalisation of AUM
does not require sophisticated modern enunciation.
Relax
Relax all muscles not in use so that all movement of the lips and jaw is natural and simple. Modern elocution is not needed to produce a primal sound.
Needless tension is produced by forcing the jaw wide open
to produce ‘A’, rounding the lips to produce ‘U’, pressing the lips together to produce ‘M’, moving the tongue, constricting the throat, exhaling too hard or vocalising too loudly.
Relaxation and simplicity are best unless otherwise instructed by a trusted teacher.
AMEN, HUM, MU, HA
The sacred sound AMEN can be achieved by vocalising AUM followed by a slight opening of the lips and resting the tongue on the roof of the mouth.
The sacred sound HUM can be achieved by vocalising AUM with an audible,
unpitched exhalation at the start. In HA the ‘M’ remains unsouded.
MU starts with the mouth closed and progresses to a slightly open mouth,
virtually the reverse of AUM. These and other sacred sounds are not
as different as they at first seem.
They are different aspects of the same continuum.
Symbolism
AUM symbolises the sound of creation, the nature of the universe,
the Word of God.
In the ancient Mandukya Upanishad, ‘A’ symbolises the waking state,
‘U’ symbolises the dream state,
‘M’ sybolises the deep sleep or dreamless state.
The pause after AUM symbolises the ultimate and timeless Truth, the eternal quest of philosophers and mystics.

Salient Thoughts
All things pertaining to spiritual progress in life depend upon peace.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Absence of turmoil is not real peace. Real peace is when you rise above the turmoil,
and stay peaceful in the midst of it.
Swami Satchidananda.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
Dalai Lama
I have learned to allow the present moment to be and to accept
the impermanent nature of all things and conditions.
Thus I have found peace.
Eckhart Tolle
First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.
Thomas a’ Kempis
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Jesus of Nazareth, John 14:27
Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace.
Lao Tzu
