My cherished singing bowl

Although I love my precious family and beloved friends, the one object that I cherish more than the rest of my belongings, is my Tibetan Singing Bowl.
God gave us the gift of sound. The vibrations of sound have a special healing quality that you can only find if you close your eyes and let the sound resonate through your body. One way sound can heal your body mind, heart, and soul, is through the strong vibrations of the singing bowl.
I read about singing bowls in a blog post a year or so ago, but I didn’t think much about it until I heard a speaker mention it during a public phone conference, called 60Minute2Impact, presented by Project Starfish America (www.pstarfish.org). The next day, I went in search of a recording of this singing bowl, and I was amazed at the soothing quality of the strong vibrations coming from the recording of the bowls. I felt the vibrations in my body long after the recording was over. This prompted me to purchase a small singing bowl for my own enjoyment.
You may be asking why I cherish this singing bowl. Personally, once I learned how to play the bowl, I found that when I’m stressed, the vibration of the bowl starts in the palm of my hand and works its way up my body, into my soul. This vibration is very soothing, even though the bowl’s pitch is a high A. When I close my eyes and listen to the rhythm of the vibrations, the bowl seems to communicate with me in a way that I can’t explain. I must admit, my daughter and my oldest niece enjoy playing my bowl as much as I do.
The striker is the medium between the bowl and my hand, and that’s where I get a lot of my divine wisdom. God is using the vibration of the bowl to speak to me. You have to be a spiritual person to understand the meaning behind my words, but if you search for Tibetan singing bowl meditation on YouTube, you’ll be amazed at the soothing sounds you hear and feel as the bowls are played, right before your very eyes.
Thank you all for allowing me to be a part of the cherished blog fest. If you want to share your thoughts on my post, please do so in the comments below.

The voice of a singing bowl

Here is a poem about my Tibetan singing bowl for your reading pleasure. Read, enjoy, and share. I play the bowl before I sleep;
it sings to me of promises I must keep.
It whispers its words of wisdom to me,
as it rings out a sweet melody.
One tiny note it does sound,
a melody in my heart I’ve found,
easy to hum with no need for words,
as I play, the voice within my soul is heard.
It’s there when I need it, day or night;
and I play my bowl to my heart’s delight.
This blessing from God fills me with peace,
as my stress turns to sweet release.
Not only at night do I play,
but the bowl is a wonderful meditation to help me start my day
So when you feel your life spinning out of control,
Why not try playing a singing bowl?
