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.

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.

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique to tap into the Universal Life Energy and use it to heal and balance living beings; a tool for personal transformation, growth and change.

 

Every single thing including ourselves are made up of Energy.  This means we are all part of the whole.  We are all one.  Connecting to this energy has always been available to human beings, we have just forgotten how.  When you decide to take Reiki it’s as if you say yes, “help me remember”

 

The reason I decided on Reiki is, it is a non-intrusive, non Religious Healing Energy.  The main difference between Reiki and other Healing Methods is the Attunements and of course you do not have to mentally concentrate while doing Reiki.  Just place your hands on the person and see the light switch come on in your mind. The energy will just flow naturally.  With Reiki you just connect to the Universal Energy with the intent to Heal and Protect..

 

Reiki Energy helps to support your own natural healing ability. It can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, anxiety and manymore. It clears the negative energy within the body working from the inside out.  It also clears any blocks within the system, helping you to have a clear calm mind and able to function at a higher level.

Finding a Reiki Master is not difficult, just ask your friends or find someone who has done Reiki or had a treatment.  Once you make contact with the Reiki Healer book in for a session. Go with your first impression, it will help you make your decision.  Prepare and ask as many questions as you need.  See if you feel comfortable in their company. Only in this way will you be confidant in your choice.

 

Once you decide to take the first step to “Reiki 1“ you will not be disappointed.  The Attunement which is carried out during the workshop opens up your channels to the Universal Healing Energy  While participating in the Workshop you will feel the heat develop in your hands especially while you practice the hand movements on others. This is the Energy naturally flowing through you.  It is only as you practice with family and friends that you find yourself opening to the Energy.. It is a great journey of self discovery and helping others

 

Please note Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment.  It should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy

 

 

Once you have experienced the massage with Healing Hands, your muscle tension will relax, allowing the mind to calm down and body to relax.  Some people may experience a little discomfort after the massage.  This is due to the body slowly releasing tension.  As the whole body is treated it takes time for the tension to be released.  We would recommend you also repeat the massage the next day, but to gain full benefit from the treatment, repeating it daily would bring harmony to your body and mind. Having the daily massage helps to quiet the busy mind and prevent the tension from building up in your body.  As mind and body are interconnected, once the mind is at peace the tension in the body lets go.

A good example is “ Your body is the Car and your Mind is the Driver”  So if the mind does not stop the body keeps going.  During your time while have the treatment your breathing slows down, this enables the mind to calm down and with the therapist working through your body the tension will be released.

What is your expectation from therapist?   They are able to identify the body tension area, and release the tensions, the expressway to release tension is to synchronize the breathing between the client and the therapist, this allows them to deeply unwind the muscle tension on the exhale.  It is also very important to help the client’s mind let go, each therapist can use various techniques that suit their personality, either guided meditation, healing hands or mind training.

Working with client’s mind is another way to be able to relax their mind and let go of their tension. Skilled therapists are able to identify the tension area through body vibration and at the same time are able to understand client ‘s state of mind by conversation.

To understand the Healing Hand Technique and how to work with different vibrations in the body during massage, using great concentration you focus on releasing muscle tension which allow the mind to transform subjective to objective matter.  These Counseling Techniques will help bring the talent and skills of Therapist  toward integrated health and well-being.

What’s healing Hand?

Healing Hand is a practice that utilizes breathing techniques based on Qi practice to accelerate the healing process and understand how to work on the body’s bio-magnetic field, and approaching the body with therapeutic touch. This is a technique to promote self-healing and to heal others.
