Everything that moves, vibrates. As long as it is vibrating, it is making sound. This sound may be outside of our threshold of hearing so we may not always here it…but it’s there. The human ear can hear sounds vibrating between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second. We can also perceive sound by skin and bone conduction allowing us to experience with our whole body. Every inch of our being from atoms to organs absorb and emit sound creating a personal vibration signature. At rest, the body (including the brain) vibrate at a frequency of around 8 cycles per second, aligning our vibration with that of Earth.
Sound baths are an ancient form of deep meditation including ambient sounds using singing bowls, chimes, bells or drums to create repetitive sounds. These sounds carry different frequencies interacting with the body in different ways.
Singing bowls can help balance the chakra energy system. Each singing bowl is tuned for each energy center. When the bowls begin to sing, these sound frequencies are projected into a dis-eased area, rebalancing your energy as you align with the bowl’s vibration. Neat right? Energy is amazing.
** Chakras are centres of energy located on the midline of the body. There are 7 main chakras. (Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye & Crown).
