How Do Different Frequencies Affect Us?
One of the reasons singing bowls are considered especially healing instruments is due to their unique frequencies.
According to many singing bowl practitioners and sound therapists, our brains and bodies operate on specific waves, or frequencies. These waves are known as Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and Gamma. The vibrations created when playing a singing bowl are similar to the frequencies of the brain’s alpha waves. Playing singing bowls, and therefore creating these frequencies, can entrain the brain, allowing it to relax and become more focused as it transitions to a theta wave state. While in a theta wave state, you will experience a greater feeling of relaxation, openness and creative thoughts. These different frequencies, which we can create by playing a singing bowl, can affect us in very powerful and beneficial ways.
Sound healing utilizes instruments like singing bowls, chimes, tuning forks or gongs, to entrain the brain and soothe the body. This type of vibration healing has the following benefits:
- Allows you to access to a deeper state of meditation
- Provides physical pain relief
- Lowers stress and anxiety
- Stabilizes extreme moods and mood swings
- Improves sleep
- Improves creativity
- Creates clarity
