CRYSTAL SINGING BOWLS AS CHI TRANSFORMERS
Excerpts of an informative article
by Sarah Rose
Our entire existence is a great symphony of vibration. Sound is a condensed form of life force energy or "chi". The whole body responds to sound. Sound works directly on the nervous system, radiating energy, creating specific effects
according to frequency and intensity. The human ear can only hear sound vibrations between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second, although we also perceive sound by skin and bone conduction, ingesting and consuming it with the whole body. At a cellular level, this stimulus is understood and assimilated.
Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about eight cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself!
The word "resonance" comes from the Latin word "resonantia", which means, "to echo". To resonate means to reinforce or prolong a particular vibration in one location by using a similar vibration in another location. All objects are resonators, transmitting and responding to specific frequencies of vibration. Vibrational medicine works on the principle of resonance.
Many sound systems are utilized for healing, and they all work! Perhaps it is an oversimplification to search for a single note which heals a certain organ or chakra. A combination, possibly a plethora of sounds, is what really effects change, and there seems to be no overdosing!
We are all veritable mandalas, beautiful and unique. Just as the chakras are interrelated, and do not function in isolation, so are our other systems. One musical note promotes stillness; more provide movement and change. One person may benefit from certain notes at one time, and other notes at another time. Depending on the different combinations of notes, one may experience sedation or stimulation. Following are the keynotes and their corresponding colors, cycles, and Hertz:

Our bodies are crystalline in structure. When working with crystals, there may be profound effects on the organs, tissues, and cells, as well as the circulatory, endocrine, and metabolic systems. Because bone is the only rigid crystal system in the body, it is the major antennae for receiving information into the body and transferring it, through its crystalline properties, to the rest of the body. Our bone structure resonates with all levels of nutrient energy, as it is resonantly transferred from the chakras, brain, mind, nervous system, heart, AND resonating external frequencies, such as music, chanting and thought.
Crystals are fossilized water, formed when water combines with an element under certain conditions of pressure, temperature and energy. As a crystal, the element is able to express itself as a more unified and ordered being.
Silica sand, combined with water becomes quartz crystal. Quartz crystals have many physical properties. They amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy. We see the results in microphones, radio and television equipment, timepieces, laser tools, and computers to name a few.
Thoughts are energy forms--chi. When thoughts interact with a crystal, those thoughts are changed to more harmonic forms, which change brainwave frequencies, showing possible alterations in consciousness. Combined with our powerful thoughts, our intentions are vibrations of affirmation and prayers, if you will. Sound is a mighty vehicle of personal and planetary transformation.
Crystal singing bowls, too, containing the qualities of amplification, storage, transfer, and transformation, are powerful tools in effecting change in one's life. It is important to approach the use of crystal bowls with a reverence for the potential contained in combining intention with the properties of crystal.
Our scientific assumptions are based on scientific observations, and theories, which support them. Basic assumptions are periodically revised under the pressure of new observations and accompanying theories. Revisions of assumptions are very painful because they destabilize the social organization of science. The "umbilical cord" which feeds it may be obstructed. Yet, it is in this very process of challenging basic assumptions that progress is made. There is an old joke, which states, "If facts do not fit the theory, it is too bad for the facts."
For example, the properties of crystal have long been recognized. The introduction of crystal singing bowls has effected transformation, individually and globally. What if we are pioneering one of the greatest tools the planet has seen? What if their uses are in their infancy, beginning their history? What if we cannot yet comprehend the power of such simple tools? Consider the possibilities of crystal singing bowls, combined with High Intention, to finally bring peace to the planet!
