Fact about Singing Bowls

By Buathon Thienarrom Ph.D

handmade singing bowl

As nowadays singing bowls are using as part of sound therapy or vibrational sound healing, as the sound frequencies will slow down the brain waves thus calm down the thoughts and inducing relaxation state.

Singing bowls have seven notes similar to musical notes and vibrate for 7 chakras healing, the identification of singing bowl note related to the sound that produces from each bowl while the identification of each note to each chakra base on vibrational practice of each school of training.

From my background of using and training on singing bowls therapy and assisting on selecting the healing bowls to my students in the past 10 years, I would like to share my experience base on chakra and singing bowl musical note as following:

Chakra Musical note
Crown B
3rd Eye E
Throat A
Heart D
Solar Plexus G
Sacral C
Root F

Singing Bowls Usage:

  • Introducing one bowl for relaxation prior starting treatment as sound ritual, would highly recommend to use Heart or Solar Plexus bowl or D or G and using vibration with drumstick which produce subtle sound for deep relaxation rather than striker stick. Heart or solar plexus are considering as the center of the body, which you can use one bowl with good quality and the sound will easily vibrate and bring harmony the rest of chakras.
  • For 3 bowls, to balance body, mind and spiritual energies, by using Root, Crown and Solar plexus bowls or F-B-G
  • For 4 bowls, to harmony the energy, consider using Root, Crown, Heart and Solar plexus bowls or F-B-D-G
  • For 7 bowls, for completed healing as opening and closing chakra, this is required a proper training to enhancing physical and mental of therapist to perform a treatment.
  • Using leather striker stick is good to distraction the physical and mental energy, and very good to practice meditation while the drumsticks provide the for a subtle sound and a good vibration for healing and for singing bowls healing it is not just about the sound but rather that the frequencies of vibration thus vibrating water tide or circulatory system within the body. And the completed healing of 7 chakra bowls it produce to subtle filed similar to magnetic or vibration chamber around the body.

Cultivating Your Inner Peace

10654122_10202982797113693_2041533364_n

The happiness and inner peace is within our heart and soul. Since we are all seeking that happiness and inner peace, let’s practice some simple techniques to help us on this journey:

  • Finding your own space: Find a quiet and comfortable space at home that gives you some privacy. Lie down on a mat, listen to relaxing background music of your choice, burn some incense or diffuse your choice of essential oil. Start with deep breathing and exhale slowly, as breathe slowly, you are also slowing down your thoughts and brain waves.
  • Conscious Breathing: Once the breathing is on a smooth rhythm, start taking deep breaths and hold them until you slowly allow the air to pass through the tensed area within the body in a relaxing way. Do not force the breathing, then slowly release as you exhale. This will help identify the tense area and slowly release muscle tension.
  • Falling in love with your own heart: Take deep breaths, hold it and start connecting with your heart. Once you have located your heart on the left upper chest, then smile to your heart. Repeat this at least 10 times or more. The heart is a positive energy source for our body and mind, once your heart is open you are recharged with vitality.
  • Circulating your happiness: Taking a deep breath, hold it and visualise the air travelling from your nose up to the crown then going down along the spinal column, to the coccyx area and then flowing up to abdominal, chest and nose. For this practice, always begin with visualisation, and you shall connect to the source of energy at a later state. Repeat 10 times.

  • Getting to know your peace: Start with smiling down to your heart, then extend the smile and radiate happiness from your heart to all the cells in your body, from left -side to right-side and top to toes. In comparison, your body is similar to a company where all the cells are represented as a team member, each day you are taking your time to greet and meet all of them with a happy smile.

Breathing your life

It is thought by many cultures that the process of breathing is the essence of being. A rhythmic process of expansion and contraction, the breath is known as prana or a universal energy that can be used to find a balance between the body-mind, the conscoius-unconscoius. Unlike other bodily functions, the breath is easily used to communicate between these systems, which give us an excellent tool to help facilitate positive change.  We can consciously use breathing to influence the involuntary (sympathetic nervous system) that regulates blood pressure, heart rate, circulation, digestion and many other bodily functions. Pranayama is a yoga practice that literally means the control of life or energy. It uses breathing techniques to change subtle energies within the body for health and well being.

Our physiology change

During times of emotional stress our sympathetic nervous system is stimulated and effects a number of physical responses. Our heart rate rises, we perspire, our muscles tense and our breathing become rapid and shallow. If this process happens over a long period of time, the sympathetic nervous system becomes over stimulated leading to an imbalance that can effect our physical health resulting in inflammation, high blood pressure and muscle pain. Consciously slowing our heart rate, decreasing perspiration and relaxing muscles is more difficult than simply slowing and deepening breathing. The breath can be used to directly influence these stressful changes causing a direct stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in relaxation and a reversal of the changes seen with the stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. We can see how our bodies know to do this naturally when we take a deep breath or sigh when a stress is relieved.

The breathing process

Breathing can be trained for both positive and negative influences on health. Chronic stress can lead to a restriction of the connective and muscular tissue in the chest resulting in a decrease range of motion of the chest wall. Due to rapid more shallow breathing, the chest does not expand as much as it would with slower deeper breaths and much of the air exchange occurs at the top of the lung tissue towards the head. This results in “chest” breathing. You can see if you are a chest breather by placing your right hand on your chest and your left hand on your abdomen. As you breathe, see which hand rises more. If your right hand rises more, you are a chest breather. If your left hand rises more, you are an abdomen breather.

Chest breathing is inefficient because the greatest amount of blood flow occurs in the lower lobes of the lungs, areas that have limited air expansion in chest breathers. Rapid, shallow, chest breathing results in less oxygen transfer to the blood and subsequent poor delivery of nutrients to the tissues. The good news is that similar to learning to play an instrument or riding a bike, you can train the body to improve its breathing technique. With regular practice you will breathe from the abdomen most of the time, even while asleep. Using and learning proper breathing techniques is one of the most beneficial things that can be done for both short and long term physical and emotional health.

Abdominal breathing

Abdominal breathing is also known as diaphragmatic breathing. The diaphragm is a large muscle located between the chest and the abdomen. When it contracts it is forced downward causing the abdomen to expand. This causes a negative pressure within the chest forcing air into the lungs. The negative pressure also pulls blood into the chest improving the venous return to the heart. This leads to improved stamina in both disease and athletic activity. Like blood, the flow of lymph, which is rich in immune cells, is also improved. By expanding the lung’s air pockets and improving the flow of blood and lymph, abdominal breathing also helps prevent infection of the lung and other tissues. But most of all it is an excellent tool to stimulate the relaxation response that results in less tension and an overall sense of well being. Breathing exercises such as this one should be done twice a day or whenever you find your mind dwelling on upsetting thoughts or when you are experiencing pain.

Place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. When you take a deep breath in, the hand on the abdomen should rise higher than the one on the chest. This insures that the diaphragm is pulling air into the bases of the lungs.

After exhaling through the mouth, take a slow deep breath in through your nose imagining that you are sucking in all the air in the room and hold it for a count of 7 (or as long as you are able, not exceeding 7)

Slowly exhale through your mouth for a count of 8. As all the air is released with relaxation, gently contract your abdominal muscles to completely evacuate the remaining air from the lungs. It is important to remember that we deepen respirations not by inhaling more air but through completely exhaling it.

Repeat the cycle four more times for a total of 5 deep breaths and try to breathe at a rate of one breath every 10 seconds (or 6 breaths per minute). At this rate our heart rate variability increases which has a positive effect on cardiac health.

Once you feel comfortable with the above technique, you may want to incorporate words that can enhance the exercise. Examples would be to say to yourself the word, relaxation (with inhalation) and stress or anger (with exhalation). The idea being to bring in the feeling/emotion you want with inhalation and release those you don’t want with exhalation.

In general, exhalation should be twice as long as inhalation. The use of the hands on the chest and abdomen are only needed to help you train your breathing. Once you feel comfortable with your ability to breathe into the abdomen, they are no longer needed.

Abdominal breathing is just one of many breathing exercises. But it is the most important one to learn before exploring other techniques. The more it is practiced, the more natural it will become improving the body’s internal rhythm.

Meditation as Mind Medication

More and more people are turning to alternative or non-traditional methods to treat medical conditions.

One such technique, meditation, is gaining popularity as a legitimate medical therapy.

Meditation is the practice of focusing your attention and mind on something that makes you feel calm and relaxed and gives you clarity about your life, says medical contributor Dr. Mallika Marshall.

For thousands of years, people have recognized that meditation has wonderful health and psychological benefits.

The medical community is becoming much more accepting of meditation as a legitimate treatment for many different medical problems, such as anxiety, stress and depression. It’s being used treat all kinds of chronic pain. People are using meditation to try to quit smoking. It’s also being used for alcohol and drug addiction. And the National Institutes of Health is even recommending meditation for high blood pressure. Studies have show also that it can help women who suffer from PMS, menopausal hot flashes and even infertility.

Meditation helps your enter a relaxation state that can lower your heart rate, your blood pressure, slow down your breathing and relax your muscles. Some experts have compared it to a “reset button” for your body.

Meditation is something that most people can safely try on their own, though there are many techniques out there — so you may want to read up on different ways to meditate.

Here is a basic meditation technique to get started. Sit or lie in a comfortable position with your eyes closed. Simply focus on your breathing, focusing all your attention on sensation of air moving in and out of your body. Then starts smiling down to your heart, sending a positive energy to your heart, allow your heart to open and relax and letting go of the worries you may have. Do this for about 20 minutes every day if you can. In the beginning, your mind will wander and come back to the present, but don’t despair, simply refocus your mind and try again. By practicing this, it will allow your mind to rest and dealing with unfinished business, and noticing your emotion baggage.

Since meditation involves sitting quietly for a period of time and simply breathing, it may be difficult for people who have breathing problems or can’t stay still. People with certain conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or psychosis may not be able to concentrate. And don’t forget traditional medical treatments in favor or just doing meditation. It should be used to complement any other treatments your doctor has recommended for you.
