The Benefits Of Using A Singing Bowl
Regular use of your cell phone and technology have you caught in a cycle of constant beta brainwaves - logic, thinking and overthinking. Use of a himalayan singing bowl can help you access theta and alpha brainwaves and open you up to insight and calm, beyond the rational mind. Another consequence of experiencing a sound bath or using a singing bowl in your own practice, is that it allows us to temporarily place technology to the side and focus on the present.
Healing And Immune System Function
Experiencing constant, and chronic, levels of stress takes a toll on your body’s ability to heal itself. In the emerging field of epigenetics, we are learning that the environment one’s body is in affects the genetic expression of disease states. By using a regular meditative practice like a singing bowl, we can place our body into an “environment” more receptive to healing,
Creative Renaissance And Problem Solving
Theta brainwave are found in talents creators of the world. Folks like Albert Einstein, Aristotle, Salvador Dali and many more have become known for their regular power nap schedule. Creative insight often strikes at the most interesting times - walking up out of a nap, or a deep sleep with that “AHA” moment is a common occurrence. And it’s because napping takes one out of a beta state, and into the states of brain that are more receptive to big ideas. We can use a singing bowl to access these states while awake.
While you don’t remember everything that’s ever happened to you with your logical brain, there is a part of you that always has deep access to this. Operating in more beneficial brain states opens you to the collective intelligence that you have access to - beyond your rational brain.
A singing bowl can be used for a wide range of things; some of those include:
Induce peace and calmness
Create an environment in your body receptive to healing
As an incredible statement piece, or a ceremonial or altar object
For use in all sorts of classrooms
For musicians and musical performances
To bring you into the here, now and this
To be played for children, and non human children (our pets!)
