the healing tones of sound

my latest obsession is sound therapy

it's all because of the healing fair but i can finally take my daily meditations to a deeper level

it's sweet when i do my ohm part of the meditation in different tones, callum tries to mimic me

blissed out boy!

anyhow, i've just ordered a bunch of tibetan singing bowls, and am looking forward to using them in my practice. so exciting.

i purchased ones with the chakras that i need the most help with - heart, throat, sacral and root. the others can wait. i suppose i need to learn how to do it before i venture out and complete the set. i'll do a bit on the chakras some other time in the blog but for now...time for some info on tibetan singing bowls...
(from wikipedia) "Singing bowls were traditionally used throughout Asia as part of Bön and Tantric Buddhist sadhana. Today they are employed worldwide both within and without these spiritual traditions, for meditation, relaxation, healthcare, personal well-being and religious practice."
"The use of singing bowls in Tibet is the subject of much debate and many stories. Some people say they were used for meditation while others say they were magical tools for transformation of self and of matter."
