The Danger Of Sound Baths Gongs And Singing Bowls

The Danger Of Sound Baths Gongs And Singing Bowls

In this article, I would like to talk about striking the singing bowls. I will make it really concise! 

Please don't use the singing bowl as a marching drum! The singing bowl is a very delicate instrument. It's fragile and requires a lot of respect! A good quality bowl will sound as soon as you rest the mallet against its wall. If you want to experience the whole range of overtones, simply use a firmer mallet and gently tap your instrument with it.

Notes and Chakras? Spiritual fraud with the best intentions.

Notes and Chakras? Spiritual fraud with the best intentions.

There are many "authorities" in sound healing community and some of them are misleading the subject by spreading unreliable teachings. I know that some of these teachers were misled themselves and they strongly believe that there is nothing wrong with the knowledge they teach. They have the best intentions, projecting so much love and care, but yet, if you choose to blindly follow the path they offer, will you discover the truth?  

Unfortunately, there are also fake gurus and I will allow myself to say BE AWARE OF THE SPIRITUAL FRAUD!

The Seven Metals Singing Bowls Myth

The Seven Metals Singing Bowls Myth

A common misconception is that Himalayan singing bowls are made from a special "sacred seven metal" alloy.

This is a false myth that has been perpetuated over the internet. Many people believe the seven metal myths. However, there is no truth to it. Singing bowls were never made from seven metals. In testing hundreds of bowls, we have never found the mythical seven metals. We have found only bell metal bronze or the cheap brass alternative.

Singing bowl playing instructions

Singing bowl playing instructions

If you start hearing a rattling sound, slow down and apply more pressure. The mallet loosely vibrating against the metal (jumping on-and-off) causes that rattling sound. It takes a little pressure to maintain even friction with the metal as it vibrates back and forth. The rattle is usually heard in the same area when playing around the rim of the singing bowl. It happens because the pressure in that area is a little loose. The vibration can not be built up to a constant (steady) intensity if the singing bowl is rumbling. Listen to the sound rise slowly. Keep the pressure constant and the sound will build up to a loud tone in a matter of seconds.

Singing Bowls Remedy for Alcoholism, Depression and Anxiety

Singing Bowls Remedy for Alcoholism, Depression and Anxiety

I used to need to pick up alcohol or pills to soothe my incredible discomfort. I've never really learned to self soothe and nurture myself and have had difficulty with self love and self acceptance. I find the process of playing and listening to singing bowls a wonderful remedy to that awful state that I have been in for too long. It has given me a newfound sense of hope and inspiration that I can overcome those things that have prevented me from living authentically and living my life's purpose.

What is so special about the singing bowl? My story.

What is so special about the singing bowl? My story.

When I came back home, I found new qualities in my instruments. After meeting the monk, I was inspired to become an even better listener to my clients and most importantly, to myself and the life around!

I now listen to my body and soul more carefully. I listen to the universe. I am focused on listening, thanks to that short, yet profound meeting with the monk.

Himalayan singing bowls brought so many profound lessons into my life, so many beautiful people, new

Gongs and singing bowls can change your life!

Gongs and singing bowls can change your life!

I was IGNITED!  What followed was the arrival into my life of several bronze, nickel/silver, and titanium gongs plus several Himalayan singing bowls. Just as the entry of the power of gongs into my life had been completely unexpected, so was the rapidly kindled passion for searching to solve the mysterious drawing power of Himalayan singing bowls. 

Several of each of these transformative instruments came into my life just as a friend was dying with cancer.

Fields of application for singing bowls

Fields of application for singing bowls

If you think that Himalayan singing bowls (also known as Tibetan singing bowls) are taking over the niche of yoga and meditation practice – you are mistaken. It's amazing to observe how much attention the sound bowls get these days. A few years ago a dentist asked me to help finding him a good quality singing bowl for his office. One of my students is a practicing nurse and doula. She uses a few singing bowls to help her patients relax and overcome pain. Another student of mine is Theta healing practitioner, using singing bowls in every session with her clients. I also have students that lead sacred plant

Healing Resonance and healing frequencies

Healing Resonance and healing frequencies

One of the most important aspects to understand, when working in the field of sound healing or just using sound for self benefits is; what is resonance. People talk about the healing vibrations and healing frequencies. There are many claims made in the sound wellness community about the specific sound frequencies that kill cancer cells and frequencies that heal and repair DNA. There are claims about 432Hz creating the resonance of healing of the planet Earth... Claims about 528Hz is a frequency of love that creates resonance of DNA and therefore, is a DNA repairing frequency...

The Benefits of Himalayan Singing Bowls

The Benefits of Himalayan Singing Bowls

Singing bowls could be brought to hospitals and rehabilitation centers. For more than four years now I've been bringing sound therapy to a nursing home and rehabilitation center in Manhattan. Although I introduced myself as a musician – and that's how I was hired – the management is calling my program “sound healing”. Most likely I would not have been hired if I called myself a sound healer. My agenda was to bring the art of conscious listening and meditation to the elders. I knew, however, that the sound healing modality had no support or even recognition
