While Yoga Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation work on the Physical Body and Philosophy works on the mental Body, Tibetan Singing Bowls work directly on the Emotional Body, which can be harder to reach at times.
Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for healing purposes for centuries and even millenia.
They have been used in Tibet and Himalayan region, including Nepal, Bhutan and North India since more than 2.000 years ago (it could be up to 5.000 years ago).
In those times, monks produced the bowls while chanting mantras and having the intention of making them healing instruments. They were made out of different metals, especially out of iron coming from a meteorit that fell on the region.
Nowadays they are not produced anymore in that way and of course, the purpose of producing them is more oriented to commercial than to healing.
Since every Bowl is handmade, each of them has its own unique sound.
But they all reproduce a sound connected to Ohm, connected to the Universe.
Some say that it´s the sound of the Big Bang, and that is why it goes so deep into us.
Since sound is vibration, it goes into our bodies not only through our ears but through every cell of our body, and especially through ears, palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
The cells of our body have memory.
This memory doesn´t reach only our whole life, but it reaches also previous generations, due to the fact that information goes through genes and knowledge, generation after generation.
The sounds of the Tibetan Singing Bowls make our cells vibrate in that way of the Universe, of the Oneness. They bring up that old memory from our cells and connect us with our own Self, with our own inner innocent kid, with the Universe, with others.
They say that being sick comes from the human belief that the World is dual, that you and me are different, that an animal and a person are different, that yesterday is different than tomorrow or a hundred years ago. Being sick comes from thinking that I should be doing somethind different than I am, or I should be treated in a different way, or I should be a different person. Considering all this makes us think that we are different, that other people are better or worse and it makes us sick, stressed, insecure.
The whole idea of the Singing Bowls is that they connect us with the Oneness.
There is no you and me.
There is one whole consciousness, stable, unchangeable.
God is in everything and everything is in God.
Everything is good the way it is.
This material world is changing, it´s fleeting, it´s unstable,
But the consciousness that lays underneath is there, has been there and will be there forever.
This connection with the Universe that comes in the Sound Healing Therapy, this connection with our inner Self and with others not only brings peace to our hearts and minds but also takes us to a different state, the state of inner peace.
And that heals us.
So they say.
So be it.
