This is an experimental sound healing piece, centered around the use of the orbital frequencies of 10 planetary bodies of our solar system in unison – in one sound. Across two main octaves, the piece employs a variety of Pythagorean intervals that weave throughout.
The sacred ten. Ten sounds in unity from our galaxy. So the idea for this piece is to assist and manifest healing potential, self-transformation and balance. To promote healthy alignment of the infinite universe that is us. The symbol of the cauldron in this instance – to be viewed perhaps as a receptacle of the beautiful ingredients we can stir into the mix. To fuse and create new harmony. The cauldron of transformation and joy. The playful way we can choose the nutrients we stir into the food of creation and existence. Ten joys from the heart outwards and inwards with no sense of separation.
So you can perhaps visualise yourself seated at the bench of becoming – and using the sound and being with the sound, and the inseparable way that you sound with that – imagine that you stir into the cauldron of intention those harmonious and beneficial ingredients using your intuition, and love. Know through the open heart and its loving kindness as you stir, that these beautiful intentions are already manifesting and taking place. Visualise how that feels, its wondrous shape and taste – an inner smile of abundance and clarity. A gentle nod to the view from the veranda of your soul.
Visualise yourself in unity with no sense of separation. Fully able and articulate to manifest and bring about the changes in your physical life, without grasping and trying to grab and fostering expectations, then wearing a sense of failure if they fail to originate. Let go of that into the totality of your being, and allow through the myriad of appreciation and acceptance that all moves in the beautiful dance. Relax into that unity and harvest its potential and bliss into the very present- the right now.
Enjoy the blessings of unity that you can create for yourself.
This track is a sound healing meditation using a 5 octave pentagon of the Earth Day tone of 194.18hz. 5 octaves for 5 elements. This track is especially created to facilitate the listeners journey into connection with the earth, with the elements, and to bring forth the harmony of grounded connection to mother earth both within ourselves and the universe of all sentient beings.
Also used accompanying the earth day tone- we have the seed syllable mantra for earth being chanted alongside the Matri or Great Heart Mantra. Out of elements, the divine loving mother of wisdom arisen from the silence, gives birth to the child of absolute compassion and loving kindness. Through the dynamic practise of the blossoming of self-arising awareness we allow the transformation of the heart and the listening ear. Om Ma Tri Mu Ye Sa Le Du is the Mantra of Compassion within the Tibetan Bon Tradition.
Of the 3 kayas, it represents the Sambhogakaya, or subtle form body of the Buddha. There are 8 seed syllables within the mantra.
represents Tonpa Shenrab, the founder of Bön.
There are 5 parts to the Bonpo OM, along with 5 related symbolisms:
– The central white A represents the wisdom of emptiness and the embodiment of the dharmakaya.
– The naro (yellow gull-like figure) represents the mirror-like wisdom and the embodiment of the sambhogakaya.
– The red crescent moon symbol represents the discriminating wisdom and the embodiment of the nirmanakaya.
– The green round symbol at the top represents the wisdom of equanimity and the essential embodiment.
– The little blue AH below the main A represents the all-accomplishing wisdom and the ultimate embodiment.
Each part of the OM is drawn in one of the colors that represent the 5 elements. In its totality, the OM represents the 5 universal qualities. In Buddhism and Hinduism the syllable OM is used, but it is not drawn with all five parts, nor is it understood to have this meaning.
The red MA
represents Sherap Chamma, the loving mother who is the counterpart to Tonpa Shenrab. MA also symbolizes clarity, and OM emptiness. Or OM can represent method and MA wisdom. From the union of these 2 seeds emanate the guide Buddhas of the 6 realms of existence, which follow as the next 6 seed syllables of the mantra:
represents Mucho Demdrug, the guide Buddha of the hell realm that is associated with the color indigo. Anger and causing harm to others leads to rebirth or experience of the hell realms. Mucho Demdrug brings us the antidote of complete and unconditional love.
represents Sangva Nangring, the guide Buddha of the hungry ghost realm. The primary cause of rebirth in the hungry ghost realm is greed, or lack of generosity to those who are in much greater need than oneself, or stinginess towards the dharma. It is said that the body if of a hungry ghost has a mouth the size of a seed, a throat the width of a hair, a stomach the size of the ocean, and legs like blades of grass. These beings have enormous need, but are unable to satiate their endless desires. This image should be understood as a metaphor of the way we relate to our own existence. Sangva Nangring offers the antidote of total generosity.
is related to Tisang Rangzhi, the guide Buddha of the animal realm and the color green. The primary cause to be born in the animal realm is said to be ignorance. The suffering of animals is related to their inability to verbally communicate. Tisang Rangzhi brings the antidote of self-arising wisdom.
represents Dagin Donpung, the guide Buddha of the human realm, and is related to the color yellow. It is said that the primary cause to be born in the human realm is jealousy. Jealousy can be related to wealth, clothing, or relationship, but at its core is the inability to accept what other people enjoy. Dagin Donpung brings the antidote of complete openness.
The blue LE
represents Chegyal Parti, the guide Buddha of the demi-god realm. The primary cause to be born in this realm of strife is pride. This can be pride of what you have, or pride in not having a quality or object. The main suffering of this realm is continual war, but through Chegyal Parti the antidote of peacefulness may relieve that suffering.
The white DU
represents Yeshen Tshugphud, the guide Buddha of the god realm. The god realm can also be said to be associated with pride. Legend has it that there is a great tree that has its roots in the demi-god realm, but the fruits of the tree fall in the god realm. The demi-gods are constantly challenging the gods to war in order to gain the fruits of this wonderful tree. But the demi-gods always lose the battle, for the gods are quite difficult to kill. Yeshen Tshugphud brings the antidote of absolute compassion.
Seen in this light, and understanding these meanings, reciting this mantra is a way of helping all the beings of the 6 realms of existence. Reciting this mantra invokes the guide Buddhas of the 6 realms and their sources, Tonpa Shenrab and Sherap Chamma. Through their enlightened power, our negative emotions are dissolved and all the positive, pure, and virtuous qualities of love, generosity, wisdom, openness, peacefulness, and compassion are invoked in us. Reciting this mantra helps us to connect with and reinforce those qualities within ourselves. It is not necessary to know all the legends of the various realms to gain benefit from this great mantra, but it is important to make a connection within ourselves to the virtuous qualities held by these seed syllables and come to embody those qualities.
Marcel Vogel (research scientist formerly with IBM): ‘The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance. When it’s cut to the proper form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the powers of the user’s mind. Like a laser, it radiates energy in a coherent, highly concentrated form, and this energy may be transmitted into objects of people at will’
QUARTZ AND ITS PROPERTIES FOR HEALING
Quartz is a defining constituent of granite and other felsic igneous rocks. It is very common in sedimentary rocks such as sandstone and shale. It is a common constituent of schist, gneiss, quartzite and other metamorphic rocks. Quartz has the lowest potential for weathering in the Goldich dissolution series and consequently it is very common as a residual mineral in stream sediments and residual soils.
While the majority of quartz crystallises from molten magma, much quartz also chemically precipitates from hot hydro-thermal veins as gangue, sometimes with ore minerals like gold, silver and copper. Large crystals of quartz are found in magmatic pegmatites. Well-formed crystals may reach several meters in length and weigh hundreds of kilograms.
Naturally occurring quartz crystals of extremely high purity, necessary for the crucibles and other equipment used for growing silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry, are expensive and rare. A major mining location for high purity quartz is the Spruce Pine Gem Mine in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, United States.
The largest documented single crystal of quartz was found near Itapore, Goiaz, Brazil; it measured approximately 6.1×1.5×1.5 m and weighed more than 44 tonnes.
Quartz is a mineral composed of silicon and oxygen atoms in a continuous framework of SiO4 silicon–oxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra, giving an overall chemical formula of SiO2. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in Earth’s continental crust, behind feldspar
Quartz crystal, because of the power and strength of its geometrical pattern, can transform a frequency pattern that it is exposed to. When a geometrical pattern is transformed, the manifestation is transformed. The use of sound with crystal is a further step toward understanding and participating in the manifestation and organisation of matter in the universe. And although the growing knowledge of the use of crystal to transmute and transform electromagnetic energy has become important in the development of new technology, quartz crystal’s greatest potential lies in the manipulation of subtle energies within humans.
Besides having a variety of grid-like lattice structures, quartz is believed by recent research scientists to also have some spiral patterns woven into the crystal structure.
Crystalline structure will respond to consciousness as well as to heat, light, sound, and pressure. It is this ability to respond to consciousness and thought forms that is so pertinent to our discussion. As crystal responds it will undergo oscillation and in so doing create specific vibratory frequencies of energy emission.
Along this vein, negative thought forms which have taken shape as a disease pattern can be released allowing the body to return to homoeostasis. The quartz power may lay its ability to make organised, focused, and coherent the emanations from a healer; like a laser takes scattered rays of energy and makes the energy field coherent and unidirectional. The healer’s energies are much stronger than if they were not made coherent by the crystal. So love and intent from the practitioner is so important.
Additionally, quartz has the ability to hold a healing thought form, similar to a magnetic recording media like a flash drive or hard drive. The crystal can be programmed with specialised information using higher dimensional consciousness vibrations.
The word “quartz” is derived from the German word “Quarz” and its Middle High German ancestor “twarc”, which probably originated in Slavic, cf. Czech tvrdý (“hard”), Polish twardy (“hard”), Serbian and Croatian tvrd(“hard”). The Ancient Greeks referred to quartz as κρύσταλλος (krustallos) derived from the Ancient Greek κρύος (kruos) meaning “icy cold”, because some philosophers (including Theophrastus) apparently believed the mineral to be a form of super-cooled ice. Today, the term rock crystal is sometimes used as an alternative name for the purest form of quartz.
HOW ARE THEY MADE ? & SOME BACKGROUND
Silica’s importance in overall optimal bodily function has been recognized for quite some time. As early as 1878, Louis Pasteur predicted that silica would be found to be an important therapeutic substance for many diseases and would play a significant role in human health and consequently nutrition. The average human body has about seven grams of silica.
Singing crystal bowls came into being in the mid 1970’s. Made of quartz crystal, they are a byproduct of the computer industry and are also used to produce synthetic diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. Known as crucibles, they are produced worldwide. Originally, the industry only grew microchips at exact frequencies. Now, these beautiful bowls are available to the general public for vibrational healing, meditation, chanting, toning and musical accompaniment. They are made of the purest silica sand, spun in a centrifugal mould and heated at extremely high temperatures. The wall of each bowl is calibrated to an exact thickness. Produced in this manner, every bowl has a specific frequency and tone. This process of quartz fusion creates a singing crystal bowl of absolute timbre. Clear bowls are made from cut sections of large diameter quartz tubing, melted and fused at one end. The tones produced by playing the surfaces of these bowls are astounding. Some of which have been found to be perceptible to human ears, at distances up to almost 2,000 feet.
Crystal singing bowls along with flutes are the only two instruments capable of producing a perfect sine wave, also known as pure tone. These waves do not erode over time and continue in their perfect form much like sending a beam of laser light off into the night skies. The pure tone of this perfect wave is capable of correcting imbalances in the human body through the law of resonance. This law states that when two similar energetic systems encounter each other, their vibrations will come into a state of harmonic vibration. Our brain wave patterns in alpha state have the same energetic patterns as sine waves.
When a crystal singing bowl is compressed, by rubbing it with a suede mallet or rubber ball, it demonstrates it’s pyroelectric properties, releasing light and small voltages of electricity. Energy is literally stored within the crystal bowl as a result of these properties. When a quartz crystal singing bowl is played, this energy is amplified and expanded going out into the environment until it comes into contact with another vibrating physical structure, perhaps yourself! Our bodies are made up of silica and our glands and cells are crystalline in structure. These structures, combined with the 80% of our body which is made of water, makes singing crystal bowls resonate perfectly with the human body, vibrating it into a state for optimum healing, meditation and spiritual growth.
They are made of 99% silica sand (quartz) and is literally spun in be in a centrifugal mold which is heated to 4000 degrees and an electric arc in the center fuses the individual grains into one whole.’s why the inside of the bowls is smooth and the external granular and sparkly as tiny quartz grains. When they came out of the mold they are then configured. This is done through a process similar to sanding down the bowl on the outside or trim the bowls height to the required note is found. The outer edge of the bowl is then performed by moving Suede mallet or beater with a large rubber ball on the end around it, which causes friction and the sound is then produced.
HOW TO CLEAN AND CARE FOR CRYSTAL SINGING BOWLS
Crystal Singing Bowls are a beautiful, yet fragile instrument. But with correct maintenance it can remain beautiful and bright for a lifetime. Always handle your bowl with extreme care, and take unique precautions while carrying it. It is likewise essential that suitable strikers, mallets and rubber rings are used when your bowl is played. There is a wide range of these specialised tools which will guarantee your bowl is not ruined while you play it. Bowls could end up being unclean during typical usage. Tidy your bowl with distilled water and moderate soap. A soft bristle brush or white fabric could be made use of. We have discovered that frosted bowls with stubborn areas could profit from a steam cleaner. Small format Steam cleaners allow you to spray dirt from the outer surface and are the easiest way to clean your bowls.
Cleansing the Frosted quartz crystal singing bowls
Quartz crystal has energy memory. This has several implications. Perhaps you have had a session you want to repeat. Then don’t clear your bowl in between these sessions.
Perhaps you are having a new session with a new agenda, and desired energy. The bowl, like recording media, can accept one bunch of data at a time so you will need to clear it of old vibrational energies.
It is conceivable that you might want to keep your energies and intent to accumulate in your bowl and make it personal. But upon receiving a new bowl it should be cleansed of old vibrations.
The fastest way to cleanse your bowl is with distilled water that has several drops of pennyroyal oil in it. Your bowl does not need to be immersed in this water but you can fill it up with distilled/pennyroyal oil water and also wash the outside with a cloth soaked in this water. This will cleanse your bowl in just a few minutes.
Other methods of cleansing:
1. Take it to the sea and immerse it in the salt water – leave it for a couple hours if you can and preferably in a sunny spot.
2. Set in sunlight for a couple days
3. Bury it for 2-7 days
4. Put it in a stream and let water flow over it for 2-7 days (this method is more appropriate for crystals than for bowls)
Cleansing your bowl will demagnetize it so that it accepts new intentions and vibrations. Regardless, it is good to cleanse your bowl periodically.
