The psychic Edgar Cayce predicted that the medicine of the future would be sound. The German philosopher Rudolf Steiner predicted that “pure tones will be used for healing.” Nostradamus also foretold the healing of cancer though pure tones. The Hopi American Indian prophecy tells of the “coming of the rainbow people” through the keepers of the crystal bowls.
Sound and music can be powerful tools in the healing process. They can be utilized as as an adjunct to traditional and alternative health care procedures and treatments. In all situations they can certainly be used as a pleasant addition to any form of practice.
Our body is a musical instrument. When the instrument is not tuned properly, a state of dis-ease or imbalance occurs. Each cell in our body is genetically programmed to maintain its own health and well-being. During the course of our life many emotional, mental, spiritual, and environmental factors interfere with this state.
In the ancient lands of Egypt, the healers travelled from door to door with a special healing Crystal Bowl called the “Faience Bowl”. It was tuned to the note of F# for the high heart. The ancients believed that the way to facilitate healing is by opening the high heart that connects the hearts of all beings. The high heart is the one heart that connects all hearts to the One, to spirit, to God. It is located in the thymus gland or the center for the immune system.
The sound and vibrations emanating from the crystal singing bowls re-tune the listener’s body, initially by opening, clearing, and re-balancing each of the 7 major chakas, plus the high heart. It has been scientifically established that each of these chakras or energy centers are associated with a musical note or vibrational frequency. When this is added to a restorative yoga class or similar class, the results are beautiful, transformational, and much more.
