Music for healing with Tibetan Bells and bowls
You can also use this healing music for deep relaxation and meditation.
In fact the borders between these categories are floating. Healing is relaxation is meditation.
As mentioned on the welcome page the body is quite capable of healing itself. For this spontaneous and automatic healing to take place we first of all need room to relax.
The page with the Practical Instructions contains valuable information for a successfull healing to take place. (The chapter Body Awareness is especially important.)
For hundred of years Tibetan singing bowls have been used to create resonating tones conducive to contemplation and meditation.
A metallurgical analysis, done by the British Museum in London, reveals that the instruments are made of a 12-metal alloy consisting of silver, nickel, copper, zinc, antimony, tin, lead, cobalt, bismuth, arsenic, cadmium and iron. Now a lost art, it appears that this quality of the bells and bowls cannot be reproduced today.
Singing bowls are found on private Buddhist altars, and in temples, monasteries and meditation halls throughout the world.
Singing bowls have been used in thousand of years to induce states of alerted tranquillity and they are still wery popular as background sounds for meditation.
The singing bowls or bells can be used to amplify the body's own healing powers or for deep meditation.
They have been in use since the time of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni (560 - 489 B.C.)
Tibetan bowls are played by gently striking the rim or side of the bowl and allowing it to ring naturally, or by slowly moving a wooden stick around the edge of the bowl. As the performer gradually increases the speed around the rim of the bowl, the ringing tone increases and the bowl begins to vibrate and create a sustained ringing note.
The subtle overtones and fascinating natural harmonies created from the bowls seems to be food for the meditative brain. A brain in meditation simply loves the overtones produced in this kind of music.
You don't need to be a Buddhist to enjoy the benefits from this healing meditation music!
These recordings captures the natural tones of the Tibetan Singing Bowls in a musical soundscape. They are designed to invoke not only deep relaxation but also a kind of cleansing of the nervous system and the subconscious mind.
The meditative sounds produced from the singing bowls have a unique transformational power. By listening with stereo headphones you can allow the subtle pulses and harmonies the bowls naturally create in a deep healing proces.
In the recording process the emphasis is put on the bells' unique ability to produce "unclean" sounds. The bells' inborn tendency to produce interferential, almost distorted soundscapes are perhaps their most important quality! This allows a release of the powerful energies from our subconscious mind.
These energies are normally dwelling in the deeper energy layers of the body. The beautiful unclean sounds of the bells make it possible for these archaic energy structures to enter the consciousness and thus be transformed into healing energy or energy used for meditation.
