If you want to understand a bit more about the power of vibrations then watch this amazing video - it shows how symetrical geometric patterns are created just by playing tones. Each tone creates a different geometrical pattern. I think this is awesome and it just shows if sound can have this sort of efffect on coloured sand - imagine how it can affect us as it vibrates through our bodies.
Sound healing has been used for thousands of years by the ancient people of the East, the Egyptians and even the Greeks. As we know, everything vibrates and depending on the frequency depends on whether we see or feel it as a solid (low frequency) or as light (high frequency). We also know that water is a great conductor of sound and as our bodies are made up of 70% water, that means we are perfect conductors of sound and can easily tune in to sounds and tones to help us start our own self-healing process.
It's thought that gongs were discovered quite by accident; whilst baking bread in crude rock ovens the heat of the oven caused the minerals within the rock to melt and pool on the oven floor, first tin and then copper, combining together to create a circle of molten bronze. As the oven cooled the metal hardened and you can imagine early man pulling it out of the oven, wondering what it was and throwing it away and as it hit a stone on the ground it made this wonderful sound, so he began to hit it with stones and sticks and so the very first gong was created. Now whether this story is true or not, it creates a wonderful image of early man using a very primitive version of a gong. Today, creating a gong is truly a fine art with the best gongs being hammered and tuned by hand by a master craftsman.
Using a 36" Symphonic Paiste Gong, this wonderful instrument has the widest range of harmonics balanced perfectly with quite complex overtones; which makes it ideal to use for healing. Along with a 20" Wind Gong and a beautiful 30" Kundalini Rising Phoenix Gong by Michael Milas, so you can immerse yourself in the wonderful tones of gongs. Bathe in the sounds of the singing bowl, hang drum and other instruments allowing the vibrations to wash through and around you to help your body to deeply relax, easing any tensions and start your own healing processes with this unique healing experience. You really should try it!
