“How do singing bowls actually work?”
This is a common question that’s asked at every event I attend. One practical answer to this complex and multi layered question is through the energetic principal known as Entrainment.
Singing bowls work to restore balance and harmony in a person’s whole being. Much like a musical instrument, in time the human body can become out of tune and stuck in a state of dis-harmony. This in turn can lead to dis-comfort, dis-cord and eventually dis-ease.
Entrainment is the grounded concept that works alongside its mate Resonance. As you may know we are all vibrating at a unique frequency. When two beings meet, they begin resonating and coming into alignment with one another, otherwise known as Sympathetic Resonance. Entrainment or Affected Resonance occurs when a higher, pure, more powerful vibration meets a lower one. When this happens the lower vibration will being to sync with the higher vibration. This effects positive, dynamic change in the lower vibration to meet the pattern of the stronger, more vibrant, light- filled vibration.
Think of the last time you were in the presence of a great spiritual Teacher, Master or other being. Did you feel differently afterward? A high vibration Master utilizes Entrainment naturally and just by being in their company a shift begins to happen deep inside. The example I like to use in workshop classes is this; it’s like sand on a plate that’s just been shaken. You are the plate, your issues are the sand rising to heal and the teacher is the force facilitating the loving shake. Energetic vibration is utilized to dis-lodge and bring to the surface that which needs to be released, cleared and healed.
Singing bowls work in a similar manner and are the simplest way to communicate with a being on a deep, cellular level. When placed on the body, the high vibration of singing bowls work in partnership with Entrainment, Intention and Love to heal long standing root issues, bringing the body back to a state of ease and harmony.
