My shoulders have grown enormously since this afternoon. I feel they’re “indestructible.” That I have durable lightweight plastic pads all around the neck, the collar-bone and the head, as well as my upper chest and back. Energy of some sorts is protecting me from all harm to those areas. And it may be rubbing off on what they call the “chakras‘ to my heart and higher parts.
There is a new “aura” extending out from me, and I get a tingling sensation just by focusing on that energy. I am “lighter” and in more control than I have been in a long time.
What has brought me to this point?
Tibetan singing bowls. As well as a healing from tuning forks with their connections to the worlds all around us, as well as within. Took a 2-hour class Saturday at a Unitarian Church in Germantown, PA, and felt first-hand what vibrations from the instruments could do. Initially, their sounds became both soothing and amusing to me, touching the “kid” inside that still could appreciate the “awe” of something almost magical and other-worldly. The sounds of the several forks, attuned by experts to connect to the metaphysical, the mystical and the mystery of a Quantum-like physics, were displayed for nine students by Katryn Lavanture, director of a “Healing” Sanctuary in Erdenheim, PA, some 20 miles outside Philadelphia.
Each of some 30 instruments served different purposes, from “grounding” a person with the sound of “OM,” the classical chant one says to themself while doing certain types of meditation, to something called the “Zodiac” that helps induce calmness and peace. There are forks specifically designed to use during a New Moon to help rid you of unwanted energies, as well as another for a Full Moon to increase and emphasize a persons natural talents and abilities.
Each planet has its own tuning fork. So do a few asteroids, according to Ms. Lavanture, who also conducts monthly meditation sessions through her work with “Eco Libra.” (See Info@PeaceJoyLove.Us, and www.PeaceJoyLove.Us.)
“Sound has been used as a healing force for millenia,” she said. “Hearing and feeling sacred sounds helps create states of deep relaxation, joy, well-being, and healing,” she added. “This class explores sound healing through tuning forks both on and off the body, as well as through Tibetan singing bowls, and Chinese wind gongs.”
Several of us, Lois, Martha, Elizabeth and myself, took turns and worked in tantum on a “subject” seated in a chair. We made bowls “sing” by rubbing wooden devices in a circular motion around the rim of each bowl. We also gently struck larger bowls for a resounding musical note that seem to last for incredibly long periods of time. We “danced” around one woman, Frances, plying here with vibration after vibration, flowing from head to toe, side to side as if we we at some ancient ceremony performing a ritual to aid a member of our “village.” I got into it, and “glided” with the sounds, attaining not only calm and peace, but real fun and enjoyment, bringing such joy to someone I hardly knew but wanted to help.
At one point, the class surrounded me as I lie on a wooden stage where they placed various bowls, big and small, new and old, with three of the most harmonic ones at both sides of my shoulders and at my head. They had the bowls sing and vibrate over and over until I felt my body “surrender” to the massage-like nurturing. I felt “totally fulfilled,” desiring absolutely nothing. It was Bliss!
Nearly six hours later, I still enjoy the effect, feeling energy flow through me and into this typing as I close my eyes, sensing that every word I choose will help get my message across.
