Most often you will just lie down on a yoga mat with your eyes closed and go into yourself. It is an internal experience designed towards wellbeing, wholeness and harmony within the self. You may feel that you have been in deep sleep for hours, while it might have been just minutes.
A Sound Bath is aimed and directed towards bringing a sense of integration, stillness, peace and health within the body, spirit and mind.
So this is what a sound bath is: The sense of just bathing within the sounds emanating from these instruments, the Tibetan singing bowls.
Sound baths have been used for thousands of years. People in Indigenous cultures of the past performed ceremonies using only the medium of sound.
So, why does a singing bowl work in the first place? The answer is based off of Eastern medicinal practices. Eastern medicine is much different from what is typically practiced in Western culture. It is based off the idea that ailments occur when the body is in disharmony with itself – when there is an imbalance somewhere.
It is believed that the energy caused by vibrations in the bowl can switch your brainwave frequencies. This can help to improve the clarity of your mind, and put you in a more peaceful state. As a result, it engages the nervous system and helps to reduce feelings of stress and/or pain. This energy also helps to realign your body and put you in a state of mind that focuses on things like lasting healing power.
Tibetan singing bowls are not just used to reduce physical ailments. They are also a great way to restore balance to the mind, body, and soul. Because of the relaxation properties of singing bowls, it can even be used to soothe small children and babies. Tibetan singing bowls are a wonderful way to promote stillness, happiness and well being.
They can also be used to stimulate the immune system. There is truly no limit to what a singing bowl can do, and you are bound to find many other benefits of your own. That is the beauty of this type of healing: It is such an individual experience for everyone.
A SOUND BATH HELD IN NATURE
Just having the energies of nature, being electrically grounded with the Earth, because obviously there is more oxygen, there is more space to breathe, there is sunlight, this is the sensation helping to awaken human beings.
It is a wonderful thing to experience...
