My F sharp eight-inch quartz crystal bowl arrived a few days ago and its tone is exquisite – so fine and pure. The high frequency vibration intensifies the energy field around the pineal gland. I can feel it throbbing in the center of my brain. Played with my C sharp Tibetan bowl, together they create a perfect fifth harmony (do – sol). Then, when I add the deeper tone of my 16″ A sharp quartz crystal bowl, the triad harmony (F# do, A# mi, C# sol) is healing and heavenly. Click this link to listen to the tones on Facebook. See where the tones resonate in your body. I venture to say that everyone who listens to this tone will feel it resonating in the center of their head.
(Caution: the tones may cause a pressure in your head, so turn down your computer’s volume before playing the clip. The pressure may simply be an indication that your pineal gland is either closed or crystalized with fluoride. If so, it may well be possible to break up the crystals with this frequency.)
There’s something very magical about quartz crystal bowls. It is said that their tones resonate the human vocal chords. I believe it, because my voice wants to sing with them every time I play them.
In her wonderful book Travelling the Sacred Sound Current, sacred chant master Deborah Van Dyke writes about different levels of listening and of hearing. (You can visit her Facebook page at the above link.)
A more advanced state of hearing occurs when we listen not only with our ears, but with our whole being. As a woman once describing her experience with crystal bowls aptly put it: ‘The sound is amazing, it turns my whole body into an Ear!’
I think that everyone should have a quartz crystal bowl to play and sing with. We had thirteen bowls to play with during our Attunement with Sacred Sound workshop intensives at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado — thanks to a very generous lady who loaned us her bowls. The main theme of the workshop is the use of sound as a carrier wave for the healing current of spirit. I demonstrate in the workshops how one can sing into the bowl their “sad song” to release ill feelings about one’s illness or life circumstance. While singing one’s song, healing currents are released as well over the sound waves, drawn from within the person, even while singing one’s sad song. Here’s an excerpt from my workshop manual, soon to be published:
TONING TO RESOLVE DISSONANT ENERGY
Sound is a natural carrier wave for all spirits. It can be used to release – or resolve – dissonant spirits as well. The quartz crystal bowl is an excellent tool for this kind of release and resolution.
Any bowl can be used – preferably the heart chakra F bowl. Or, one may explore and discover one’s own resonant pitch and then purchase a quartz crystal bowl tuned to one’s unique resonant pitch. Having one’s own bowl is an investment in one’s heart health.
First get in touch with the dissonant feeling inside. Begin giving it sound, even though it’s but a grunt or a moan. Then start playing your bowl while grunting or moaning. Get it all out before you start clarifying your toning in harmony with the bowl. Once you have found resonance with the bowl, play and sing for a bit having fun with your creation.
Renown oncologist, Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor, uses the quartz crystal bowl this way with his cancer patients with remarkable success. In his captivating and deeply inspiring book, Sounds of Healing – a must-read for practitioners of sound-healing – he writes:
I’m convinced that physical recovery cannot occur unless we acknowledge our constricted nature and boldly strike out beyond their borders to discover our true, unencumbered selves.
Much like a shaman himself, Dr. Gaynor points to the wisdom of the ancients as a model for modern medicine:
Yet today doctors generally have as little interest in the ancient model of a healing partnership as they do in the notion of using sound, either by itself or with meditation, to create a holistic recovery process that touches mind, body, and soul. The shamans understood that music, song, and dance are inextricably linked, and all of them require varying degrees of mental and physical flexibility. I see the interplay and balance required to make music as a reflection of the harmonious interaction of the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems in a healthy body. Rudolph Steiner, the German educator and philosopher, compared physical illness to an untuned piano. Imagine, then, the sense of empowerment to be gained from using sound—whether emanations from a singing bowl, your own voice, a flute, drum, or some other musical instrument—to create a tuning device that enables you to be both the healer and the healed. Shamans have known this for centuries; we may just now be learning the lesson.
Dr. Gaynor has his patients create their own unique songs while singing into their bowls as they play them. The therapeutic effect is profound. Here’s a link to a website where you can purchase a quartz crystal bowl: Crystal Tones.
Here’s to your Sound Health. 🙂
