singing bowls & meditation

A 2017 study found Tibetan singing bowl meditation significantly reduced tension, anger, fatigue and depressed mood in participants. Also, first-timers to this style of meditation experienced a significantly greater reduction in tension compared with participants experienced in this meditation. On top of it all, a feeling of spiritual well-being significantly increased across all participants. Source

Meditation is a global trend that is rapidly spreading throughout corporate America. Even Harvard doctors have discovered that in just 8 weeks, meditation helped increase grey matter in the brain! Source

According to Harvard trained Dr. Leonard Horowitz all healing occurs from sonic waves or vibrations, specific frequencies of sound.

Meditation literally rewires the brain! Scientists call it neuroplasticity. Source

In fact, "in a National Institutes of Health study on meditation: Over a 19 year period 23% decrease in mortality, a 30% decrease in death due to cardiovascular problems, a 49% decrease in cancer mortality as well. “This effect is equivalent to discovering an entirely new class of drugs (but without the inevitable side effects)."

Here's a fun short video on the science of meditation by ASAP Science.

sound frequency

"Brain Wave Entrainment is any procedure that causes one’s brainwave frequencies to synchronize with a periodic stimulus (sound, vibration or light) having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state ... Most wisdom traditions have employed methods that allow the subjects’ brain waves to slow down such as meditation ... [and] Tibetan prayer bowls." Source

 

Physicists also discovered the amazing properties of these bowls and how they affect matter, namely water, around it!

Did you know old models have been thrown out and new ones are being adopted that point to the connectedness of all life? Physicists are finding that the universe is not made of matter suspended in empty space but energy.

“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” -Albert Einstein

These videos show the jaw-dropping true nature of our frequency-based reality.

So, what now? How do we use this to our advantage for increased well-being?

“If we accept that sound is vibration, and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is “heard” not only through our ears but through every cell in our body,” writes Mitchell Gaynor, former Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center, NY, who reminds us that the human body is 90 percent water--the perfect medium for carrying sound.

Did you know singing bowls naturally help your brain emit a specific type of meditation brain-wave frequency?

Biophysicist Erwin Neher, a nobel prize winner, found that brain waves altered by EEGs and brain patterns created in a meditative state were that of alpha brain-waves.

Neher found that "The vibrating resonance of Tibetan bowls has been correlated with the generation of an alpha brain-wave state, while ting-shang, small cymbal-like bells used by Tibetan meditators, have been described as producing the consciousness-altering theta state” Source

Meta-studies now prove the wide-ranging benefits of meditation, from increased relaxation, creativity, and learning, to decreased blood pressure, stress, and anxiety.
