As we begin our journey into the world of sound therapy and sound healing we just have to keep it simple. Playing the Tibetan singing bowl gives us the sense of the awareness of sound.
We begin to work with developing a sense of sensitivity to sound, sensitivity to energy, and also cultivate that sense of focus - the sense of focus and one-pointed awareness which will help you to stay focused.
Just enter meditation posture either with crossed legs or sitting in a chair with a straight back. Have the sense of your weight being deeply held by the earth, allow the weight of your body to be fully supported by the earth and the ground. Feel yourself letting go on each exhalation, keeping your spine straight and your neck long.
Tune into the body, recognize how you feel in the present moment; if you feel tired or full of energy, just feel how you feel and connect with the level of your mood.
Do you feel joyful or sad? Heavy or light? Notice how your emotions feel at this time in this present moment. Tune into your thoughts notice if your thinking mind is busy or peaceful.
As we are begin to play the Tibetan singing bowls, try to be attentive to the sound feeling, to the beginning, the middle and the end as the sound dies away.
Just tune in to the sound. See if you can really listen to the end, to the silence.
The sound embraces the silence, staying attentive to the sound, letting it fall into the silence as the sound of the boldest embraces the silence. Within your awareness to the sounds around you in the room or outside, have a sense of appreciation for the quality wherever they are.
This is the practice developing focus and sensitivity to sound and energy mindfulness.
We can use the world of sound therapy and sound healing to balance ourselves and bring healing to our body on an emotional level, on the physical level, and the mental and spiritual level.
