Relaxing the mind and body with singing bowls
So often I hear many say “I find it difficult to meditate, I can’t stop the thinking”. In my Positive Music sound baths, I introduce people to singing bowls by talking about how they work and how beneficial they are for silencing the mind and relaxing the body. When we quiet the mind, we begin to see things in a different light, so to speak. We begin to silence the inner critic; you know those thoughts…? “I’m not good enough”.
Thoughts are powerful
Thoughts are powerful. What we think has an impact on our feelings and behaviour. So how can we change in many cases a life time of feeling I’m not good enough? Well… we can in time, with meditation begin to reprogram our mind to be more loving and gentler towards our-self. Through meditation we can begin this journey of self-love and acceptance. By using singing bowls with meditation, we bring an ancient healing tool to our rescue. A powerful healing tool to help ease over thinking and destructive behaviour, a beautiful combination of sound healing and meditation.
A few meditation and singing bowl tips
Find a quite space, it could be indoors our outdoors, maybe your garden? I have created a pack of affirmation cards meditation, which can be downloaded as a PDF. Choose an affirmation for your meditation and begin to play your singing bowl with this intention in mind. It can be as short as 1 minute when you’re starting out, just remember if you’re mind wonders come back to the sound of the singing bowl and your affirmation. Increase the time of your meditation from 1 minute to 2 or 3 minutes. Explore and experiment with and without the bowl and different times of the day. Oh yes… be gentle with yourself, it’s ok if your mind wonders at times, just imagine your mind is like a child and you are the parent, guiding it with love and patience.
