As the new millennium dawns, frontiers of
consciousness are opening. Some, made possible by technology, are new.
Others are old; lost arts that are being rediscovered. Healing with
sound is an ancient method that is finding its way back into our lives.
The Tibetan singing bowls, ancient in origin, are new to us with their
intricate sounds that can be used for healing. Hidden away for
centuries, they have only recently entered the Western world.
Technology can unravel part of their mystery and prove that their sounds
have a profound effect on the brain, brain waves, heartbeat, blood
pressure, and nervous system. Even without the supporting information of
technology, singing bowls demonstrate their healing power on body, soul
and spirit. People who bathe in their mysterious sounds tell how the
bowls have a powerful effect: stress is reduced and a feeling of
well-being is increased. Used in the right way, singing bowls bring one
in contact with the inner self and the world of the sacred, where all
the seeds and potentials of present and future growth are available for
those who choose to enter.
