Explore the history of using singing bowls in meditation as well as research results pointing to the benefits of sound baths. Discover how the sound of singing bowls can influence your body and mind and calm your mind with popular audio singing bowl pieces.
Singing bowls, or sound baths, in which one is immersed in the sound of bowls and gongs, provide relaxation and have been shown to reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. The sounds of a singing bowl offer respite from the everyday churning of the mind, and so does meditation and yoga.
The Healing Bowl Process
In the east, health is looked at much differently than in the west; illness is thought of as a manifestation of disharmony within the body, such as an imbalance in the cells or a given organ. Having said that, since matter is energy that vibrates at different rates, the structure of matter can be changed when you alter the rate of vibration. The body is said to be healthy only when each cell and organ resonates in harmony with the entire body. What these bowls do is cause the brain to switch to Theta brainwave frequencies that heighten one’s intuition, clarity of mind, as well as deep meditative and peaceful states. This positively affects our nervous system and engages our relaxation reflex while also inhibiting the pain or stress response.
When this alignment occurs, health and healing all come into balance, creating deep harmony within and without. This can easily lead to spontaneous healing. As the great Tibetan master, Bodhisattva Gwalwa Karmapa puts it so finely, these Singing Bowls emit the “sound of the void” which is really the sound of the universe. Given that the science behind this method is slowly being uncovered, modern medicine is just starting to measure as well as validate its ability to heal our body, mind, and soul.
Theta Brain Waves
As some scientists have discovered, the upper end of the theta brainwave range is what is considered vital to the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. This is referred to as “being in the zone” by athletes, musicians, and meditators. Once you know how to get there, you can begin to uncover the deeper potential of your mind- and truly experience the lasting effects of energy-healing.
