Meditating Using Singing Bowls
When you hear the word meditation, what comes to your mind?
When meditation is being done, tension of the body is released, enabling the energy within the body to flow in one point direction. A state of inner peace also comes from meditation wherein one’s mind becomes completely calm. Meditation can help you cope up with the stressful nature of life especially if you are a busy person, an hour of meditation can help relieve the stress.
Your body and mind will both benefit from daily meditation due to its vibrant effects. Meditation relaxes and calms every nerve of your body making you feel energetic. There are different ways to do meditation. Meditation can be done by simple breathing deeply in a pattern. Listening to the relaxing sounds of nature can also be considered as meditation.
Due to the stressful nature of today’s life, it would be recommended to meditate even once a day. Because of the hectic lifestyle brought about by pressure of responsibility, we tend to forget to take a break and sometimes do not have time to do a self-introspection. Meditation also gives us the opportunity to do some self realization to maintain our physical and mental health. We also get to answer our unanswered questions just by doing meditation. Meditation is similar to therapy. Gaining inner peace is the main point of meditation, and if a certain activity helps you achieve that, then it can be considered as meditation.
Each person has his or her own way of meditating. But regardless, there are also people who do the same technique for meditating and that is by using singing bowls. The sound that singing bowls make provide a soothing ambiance for the individual. Precious metals such as gold and silver are used to make these amazing instruments of relaxation. Other metals which can be found in singing bowls are copper, iron, and nickel. The singing bowls work their magic through healing sound. Combined with the usual methods of meditation which are enigmatic chanting and a paced breathing pattern, the healing sound of the singing bowls can be very powerful and effective.
Using a wooden striker, sound is produced by hitting softly the outer surface of the singing bowl. The vibration frequency created by the sound of the singing bowls makes meditation more effective. It really helps to remain calm and composed when trying to listen to the amazing sound that is produced by the singing bowls.
