One fish asks another fish “how’s the water?” The other fish replies, “what the hell is water?”
So it goes with Sounding Healing
If you’ve ever heard a Tibetan singing bowl you probably have instantly and involuntarily taken a deep breath releasing stress you didn’t even realize you were holding in your body. And it is well know that stress creates dis-ease and is the underlying cause of many of the ailments that plague most people today.
This stress epidemic has been increasing over the decades because of the escalating demands of living in a capitalistic society (spend some time in Europe and you experience the difference) coupled with advances in technology which keeps us tethered to digital devices 24/7 among other things.
Like the fish above, we don’t even realize we’re “in stress”
So how can we combat stress and promote health? One simple is way the Tibetan singing bowls. It will restore resonance and harmony back to your body and life by: Zapping stress, releasing blocked energy in the your bodies energy meridians and elevating your over-taxed energy system- in no time at all.
The big reason why I like the singing bowls so much is not only that the stress relief happens instantly and is palpable, but it is so easy and enjoyable to do.
Let’s dig in and discovery how we can add this quality tool and this simple practice to our lives and reap its wonderful benefits in a fun and enjoyable way.
Sounding Healing Premise
Sound Healing is an effective and proven way to promote health that uses vibrations to reduce stress, alter consciousness, and create a deep sense of being connected to everything around us.
Sound has also been documented to be a critical aspect of the healing process for cancer patients going through chemotherapy and its side effects, most particularly for pain relief management.
Most of the day, the normal frequency of our brain waves is in Beta. Sound tools, like the Tibetan singing bowl, induce the brain to move into the deeper Alpha and Theta brainwave frequencies. These are the frequencies that create deep meditative and peaceful states, focus of mind, and increased intuitive and psychic abilities.
New technological equipment in the medical field can now measure and now confirm the use of sound as a means to promote healing.
This verifies that sound is a kind of energy medicine that creates the sacred space in which people can heal from stress related dis-ease and disorders, pain, depression and more.
How does it work?
This sound frequency that Tibetan singing bowls creates is known as “Perfection”in terms of vibration. The sound from the bowls impacts the sympathetic nervous system as your brain waves synchronize to the vibrations of the bowls.
These harmonic vibrations trigger the relaxation reflex and slow down the respiratory, brain and heart rate. This in turn, disrupts the pain reflex producing a deep feeling of well being and relaxation. Many people also work with gongs, color related to the chakras and visualizations. These are added and integrated to help move energy.
How to do Sound Healing with Tibetan Bowls
Drink a glass of water.
Get in a comfortable place on the floor, or on a mat with your bowl and mallet close by.
Make sure you wear comfortable clothing without buttons, zippers or jewelry.
Take a deep breath and relax. Focus on your chakra’s ( bodies energy centers) if you like, letting your intuition guide you.
Gently strike the bowls and then rub the accompanying mallet in a circular motion against the bowl’s rim.
Sense when you’re finished. For example, some professionals give their clients hour long sessions, once a week for several weeks in a row, with tune-ups throughout the year. Experiment and decide what’s best for you. Maybe daily for several minutes, if that best fits your time frame and lifestyle.
Many experts who work with the chakra’s and the bodies energy system, recommend doing a tune-up/cleaning daily, which usually only last several minutes, if that.

Some basic benefits are: relief from pain, relief from stress- related conditions and the ability to alter ones consciousness.
