CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND HEALING
Sound vibration is one of the most ancient forms of healing human beings have used and explored over the millenniums. A sound healing mediation with alchemy crystal quartz bowls is a transcendent experience for the mind, body and soul. The benefits you will receive are literally infinite. During sound healing the mind journeys into a dreamlike state to receive intuitive intelligence from the higher form of self. This guided meditation allows us access to our higher consciousness. It is a very receiving state for the mind to be in, one where the body is relaxed and the mind is receiving. It is here we can begin to wash out limited beliefs and patterns that the subconscious mind holds, allowing us to plant new seeds of intention and resolve. The shifts that occur within our energy field are profound.

To begin to understand how sound vibration affects the body we can start by saying we all energy. Everything around us is energy, we are energetic beings, and the entirety of the Universe holds the bio energetic filed.

The basic units of energy are light and sound. Energy ~light and sound ~ moves in waves.

The sound vibration of crystal bowls is an energy that travels the energy system of our bodies, through the chakras (the energy centres of the body).

The body is designed through its system of energy centres – chakras to be an integrated and connected part of our surrounding bio energetic field – the Universal energies. If we can balance the energies within us and connect to the bio energetic field the result is perfect health, perfect balance and harmony. When we are not in harmony, it is a sign we have fallen away and are imbalanced in our chakras and disconnected from the bio energetic filed.

The solution is to reconnect, to activate and switch back on all the energy centres in your system and harmonize with the bio energy field. Essentially it’s to get “plugged back in”!

This is where the sound vibration comes in. The crystal bowls create sound waves that create a circular form of energy that spirals up and that surrounds the body and the bio energetic field. The higher energy frequencies enter in a clockwise direction, the body system energy releases in a counterclockwise action. This downward –upward streaming of energy created a double spiral of energy happening, and forming a scalar energy column of energy around us. High frequencies enter the body via the chakras, beginning a the crown and exits the body in a downward motion. This energy moves through the conduit of the spine and outward through the neural network, to be dispersed through out the bodies energy system.

We respond to the energy of the crystal bowls because we to are energy. Our energy centres, the chakras are centred along the spine and the core of the body, beginning at the tailbone and ascending to the crown of the head. This includes the seven major energy centres of the body as following: 1Root/ 2 Sacral / 3 Solar Plexus/ 4 Heart / 5 Throat / 3rd Eye / 7Crown. Each of our Chakras has a corresponding note or sound, the root is the note of C / Sacral is the note of D / Solar Plexus is E / Heart is F / Throat is G / 3rd Eye is A / Crown is B. There are also energy centres and notes that are above and below the Root and Crown chakras. As you can see we are built much like a musical instrument. Therefore we respond to sound healing and energy very well, as like energy attracts like energy.

When the crystal bowls are played a vibration and sound are emitted, this energy travels in sound waves. Each crystal bowl plays a specific sound note and then 4 tones above and below this note. The spiralling sound waves seek out the like notes in our energy body to be played one by one, note by note, moving through the bodies whole energetic structure. When the waves encounter a blockage in the body, sound vibrations begin the process of aligning and entraining, to create like vibration and frequency in the energy centre that is needing the balancing. It could be said you are being “tuned in”. This spiral wave makes its way up the body balancing, and tuning the body back into harmony. It is a balancing process for the body to harmonize and come back to wholeness it knows.

The brain experiences quiet a lot in this process of sound as well. While experiencing the sound waves of the crystal bowls the brain can no longer recognize the separation of the right and left hemispheres. The sound rolls right through the corpus callosum (the brain matter that separates the right and left hemisphere, and is what creates the duality of our human nature, the yin & the yang). The sound spirals round and round, reintegrating the two hemispheres, and we experience a shift from linear thought expression to one of global perception. Instead of isolated clusters of neural activity, here and there, the whole brain lights up. The mind is unified and goes global and experiences wholeness.

We are experiencing unity of consciousness in this state of mind. This is where people say they felt as if they “feel no space, no time”. It also may be hard to distinguish where the sound begins and ends, the sound seems to roll around the head (sometimes we experience dizziness and or feel like we are out of our body).

The crystal bowls allow us to move beyond separateness, to oneness, integration, wholeness of mind. In this free state of being, separation from the universe simply falls away. You may ask, is this like meditation then? Absolutely, it is a guided sound ~ energy meditation!

The brain waves synchronize with the spiralling sound waves, beginning to slow down in frequency. In our awake and alert state the brain functions at a Beta level: 20 cps (cycles per second). When we listen to the sound vibration of crystal bowls the brain shifts down from Beta (20 cps), to Alpha and on to Theta, which is 6-4 cps. You are in a meditative brain frequency.

The mind sinks into the subconscious layers and enters a dreamlike state. Here we can feel the release of emotions, fears, desires and memories. The consciousness is being given the opportunity to reflect on to its self, to process and integrate what it has experienced. The body is as if in a deep sleep, breathing slows, heart rate slows, blood pressure drops. All physiological phenomena advanced meditators reach, in self-directed meditation. The crystal bowls act as gentle guides, to lead you through levels of frequency, bands of energy and layers of consciousness.

You will experience amplified energy and shifts in your mind and body will occur with crystal bowl sound healing. It is an experience like no other, transcendent for the mind body and soul.

Fear by definition is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. There is one very powerful word in this sentence, "belief".....Fear is caused by a belief. A belief is an acceptance that something is true and exists. So if fear is merely a belief and a belief is simply an acceptance, can't we accept a new belief? The instant I did, virtually everything changed in my life for the better. The biggest challenge is recognizing fear for what it is, and knowing an actual fear is never as scary as the ones you imagine. There are things that happen throughout your day that cause you to react or feel a certain way, mostly negative. These can be called triggers. Triggers occur because of core beliefs we all have well rooted in our souls. These core beliefs are all based on fear. You begin to fear the outcome of things and events you don't even know will ever happen simply because your mind is hard-wired too. This fear based reality is crippling to your success, happiness and peace. So what begins to happen when you hard-wire your mind for happiness and security. You begin to know a world you may have said you could have only ever imagined of.

1) You will see what happens in your life as something that simply happened and did not happen to you. It had a start, it had an end, and there is no need to let any of that energy linger in your soul. Humans tend to make everything so personal. You assume that this happened because of something lacking or wrong in you. You think it would have never happened if you were just "not so this", or "better at that"..... This simply is not true. This is a lie you are telling yourself. You convince yourself of this because it keeps you safe and protected. As soon as you begin a journey of leaning into your fears, your discomforts, your worries. As soon as you begin to see that fear there, you become aware that this isn't you, it is a message telling you "hey, here's a little something where you can show up for yourself". An opportunity to meet your own needs for safety, nourishment, joy. You begin to see that there is separation between who you are, and what you are doing. It isn't about stopping all of the crazy from happening in your life. It is about developing the resilience to ride the wave straight through the crazy without getting knocked down.

2) You begin to notice the infinite amount of abundance that surrounds you in all forms. Abundance of love, success, happiness, contentment. There are only two states you can be functioning from, fear or love. When you shift into living a love based life, all you see and experience is love and success. The mind has the ability to ruin anything it wants. It does this because it is seeking control. We cannot control the world around us, so we control our thoughts. If your thoughts are fear based, how do you think the world around you will be and feel? If your thoughts are love based how do you think your world will be and feel? Mmm hmm! Establishing new thought patterns is merely creating a new habit. One that is easy to establish with the right and appropriate force and in the right conditions.

3) Success begins to chase you! Financial success, relationship success, personal success, family success, successes of all kinds will begin leaping at you. Living a love based life instead of a fear based life brings you into alignment with the universal principle of your unique soul purposes. It is from this state that literally anything is possible, anything! We are all energy (vibrating particles) like energy seeks like energy, it is a law of physics. If you can imagine it, you can have it......but only when you're aligned with the universal principle of your unique soul purpose.

4) Life becomes easy. You step into the flow of life. This chanel of positive and vibrant energy that carries you through life peacefully, establishes deep resilience within you. Your moments are pure and full of good, instead of stressful, tough or scary. Life lifts you up and doesn't knock you down. Things that were once scary or hard for you, you will now see as amazing opportunities.

Don't ever allow yourself to be intimidated by what you don't know. When you move past fear you begin to see who you are, and that is your super power. I promise you, you can only imagine the creations that will explode from you when you step away from fear and into love.

While the 60 to 90 minutes you spend on your yoga mat a few days a week certainly helps, it is no match for the chronic stress and tension you place on your body during the rest of the day in your desk job.
 
Sitting at a desk for hours on end places unnecessary strain on the lumbar spine, overstretches the mid to upper back, and shortens the chest and hips—leading to neck, shoulder, and low back pain. Try this simple office yoga  sequence when you cannot get to your favorite class.

Negativity does not naturally dwell in your body, yet you have a bias for it. When is enters your thought patterns and your cellular consciousness, it sticks to you like Superglue. This negativity bias affects much of your life. Impacting your choices, creating a lens through which you see your world, and ultimately weaken your ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions - the weakening of your resilience. This is merely a habit and habits can be changed under the right conditions and forces. In other words a practice of inquiry and mindfulness will allow you to bounce back far faster than before.

1) You are tossing away your power like it were confetti! You go on throughout your day spreading and depositing your energy wherever you go. Driving your kids to sports practice, rushing to get a project in before the deadline, doing the grocery shopping, laundry and house cleaning. Every time depleting your own source of life, what you rely on to power you through the day. Spreading and sharing your energy is great, it is needed, you most likely care for a number of people in your life. Never forget to replenish it. The best ways to do so are through a yoga practice....not just attending a yoga class or two, but actually committing to a yoga practice (a few classes a week). Yoga has been proven to increase energy (prana or qi) in the body and remove stagnant or blocked energy.

2) Doubt infects you like the plague. When we hold a thought pattern in your mind, your thoughts, you hold it in your cellular body. This thought
pattern cripples your ability to have any hope (the number one sensation to hold in life) that your life is in fact not happening to you, but
around you. Doubt clouds your viewpoint. In reality, something may be wonderful and good, but you can't see that, you have the lens of doubt on. If you are doubting the outcome of something you would really like to be positive, ask yourself, what percentage of certainty do you have
that the doubtful outcome will actually happen.

Honestly you can't tell me even 0.1% because you can not see into the future and you do not know anything of this nature to be true or not....so stop worrying and feeling doubtful. Replace those feelings with love, breathe in say to yourself "love", breathe out say to yourself "love" or simply just take a mindful breath.

3) You are forgetting you already have everything you need. Really you do! Love, power, manifestation, resilience... these and much more are
all your birthright. You use negative thought patterns, internal criticism, judgement, rendered impressions of past experiences, and fear to
cloudy your innate and all mighty capability to understand that you don't need to earn anything, you don't need to attain any level of existence.
It's all already in you, you've already made it! You simply need to access it....how do you ask? by being aware that you are the being and
not the doing. Knowing you do not need to seek any form of approval, status, existence empowers you to know the feeling of resilience
through strength of identity in the being and not the doer.

4) You forgot to look for the good, look for the helpers. You can actually re-wire your brain for positivity by simply having that perspective. The
more you focus on the good, the more good there will be. It's the law of attraction through physics. Make this a fun challenge for yourself, when
you are hit by adversity in your day, intentionally find at least one good thing in it all. Even if it is something like being grateful this bad thing
happen so you have the chance to practice this method.

5) Your heart is closed. Your heart is closed because the emotion of fear has moved in and taken strong roots. Fear weakens your
resilience by blocking your intuition and knocks your consciousness off centre. Fear is where negativity, anger, sadness, frustration and scarcity all grow from. Your thought patterns based from fear (pretty much most of them) are merely a habit. If you want to experience a
different outcome, choose a different habit, choose LOVE! not in the romantic sense, but in the alignment with the universal principle you
operate from love sense. Self awareness through inquiry and mindfulness is the fastest way to begin opening your heart.

Meditation may help reduce the risk of heart disease according to a first-ever statement on the practice from the American Heart Association. The statement was based on a review of 57 previously published studies by a group of cardiovascular experts who were tasked with evaluating whether meditation  has any impact on heart disease . The team excluded studies involving meditation practiced in conjunction with activities such as yoga and tai chi because it is already established that physical activities like these have positive effects on cardiovascular health. The investigators reported that while the research they reviewed suggests that meditation might benefit the heart, the overall quality and size of available studies is modest and did not lead to conclusive findings. As things now stand “meditation should be considered as a potential lifestyle modification” to help boost cardiovascular health, the team concluded. But Glenn N. Levine, M.D. who led the review warned that meditation shouldn’t be used to replace proven measures, such as smoking cessation, blood pressure control and treatment of high cholesterol  levels. Larger trials that follow patients for a longer time could help determine just how beneficial meditation can be for heart health, Dr. Levine said.

What is an affirmation?.....{ af.firm.a.tion is a declaration, the action or process of affirming something}. Your brain doesn’t require that the information you are giving it to be completely accurate. It simply needs it to be certain in order to find the most optimal direction to reach out for the energy that will deliver you your desire, you vision, your goal. Affirmations centre your consciousness in order to increase intuition, intuition grants you confidence, when you advance confidently success will chase you.

1) All I need in life I already have.
2) I do not need to earn anything, I already am whole.
3) I live from love.
4) Only good comes to my life.
5) I am safe.
6) My potential is unlimited.
7) I look for and focus on the good in all things.
8) I don’t ever fail, I keep growing and learning.
9) I am enough...always.
10) I honour who I am...always.

These are thought patterns that will begin to replace out-dated, negative thought patterns each time you hear these words in your own head. These thought patterns will literally begin to create a positively wired brain, resilient of worries and stresses, anger or frustration.
