Crystals are formed when water combines with an element under certain conditions of pressure, temperature and energy. As a crystal, the element is able to express itself as a more unified and ordered being.
Silica sand, combined with water becomes quartz crystal. Quartz
crystals have many physical properties. They amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy. We see the results in microphones, radio and television equipment, timepieces, laser tools, and computers to name a few.
Our bodies, too, are crystalline in structure. When working with crystals, there may be profound effects on the organs, tissues, and cells, as well as the circulatory, endocrine, and metabolic systems.
Thoughts are energy forms. When thought energy interacts with a crystal, those thoughts are changed to more harmonic forms, which change brainwave frequencies, showing possible alterations in consciousness. Thus, the power of positive intention or affirmation combined with the use of crystals provides remarkable healing results.
Many cultures recognize the importance of music and sound as a healing tool. In ancient India, Asia, Africa, Europe, and among the Aboriginals and AmerIndians, the practice of using sound to heal and achieve balance has existed for centuries. The Tibetans still use bells, chimes, bowls, and chanting as the foundation of their spiritual practice. In Bali, the gong and drum are used in ceremonies to uplift and to send messages.
The Australian Aboriginals and Native American shamans use vocal toning and repetitive sounds, along with instruments created from nature, in sacred ceremony to adjust any imbalance of the spirit, emotions or physical being. The priests of ancient Egypt knew how to use vowel sounds to resonate their energy centers or chakras. There is a direct link between different parts of the body and specific sounds. Such a technique appears extremely old, yet healing through sound goes back even further, at least as far back as Atlantis, where the power of sound was combined with the power of crystal. In fact, some people today still refer to the crystal singing bowls as being Atlantean crystal bowls.
At the present time, the Native American Hopi prophecy is being
fulfilled with the "Coming of the Rainbow People", through the keepers of the crystal bowls. This ancient wisdom has emerged to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe through pure crystal tone. Edgar Cayce, the American psychic, and Rudolf Steiner, German philosopher, educator and artistic genius, both predicted that "pure tones will be used for healing before the end of this century". Nostradamus foretold the healing of cancer through pure tone by 1998. The pure tones created by crystal bowl music enter as a fulfillment of this prophecy.
Everything in the universe is in a state of vibration, and each object or person has a resonant frequency that is their optimal vibration. The chakras, bones and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ, or other part of the body, is vibrating out of tune or nonharmoniously, it is called "dis- ease". A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell and each organ create a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being.
Vibrational therapy is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterized by blockage in the channels on some level, such as in acupuncture meridians, arteries, veins, nerves and chakras (energy centers). When there is a blockage, the organ in question stops vibrating at a healthy frequency, and thus it results in some kind of illness. Using sound and light, one can break up, dissolve and remove these blockages that initiate in our light or etheric body. Ultra sound (very high-frequency sound), well-known as a diagnostic tool for fetal development, is also being used to cleanse clogged arteries and break up kidney stones.
The body may be seen as a pattern of visible frequencies that produces an auric color field. The aura changes as it reflects emotional states of consciousness, and thus the physiological status.
The appearance of the aura is also conditioned by the qualities and activity of each chakra. A chakra may be underactive, overactive, or blocked. These may be temporary conditions or reflect a more deeply held pattern.
For example, sudden emotional stress may drive the solar plexus into overactive churning, whereas long term emotional stress may cause a person to nearly shut down the solar plexus chakra so that the person may avoid feeling any more hurt. Of course, this also means that the person lessens the ability to feel at all, including pleasure.
The sounds of the crystal bowls help balance the chakras in two ways. At the same time that the disharmonious conditions are being adjusted or removed, a sacred space is created for strengthening of the person's Higher Self connection or "Divine Blueprint". When an unbalanced energetic condition is removed, it is always wise to fill the void created with the highest aspect of Source that the person is willing to embrace. The sound waves from the crystal bowls emit a pure holographic template of radiant sound that builds a "Jacob's ladder" to the Divine.
The pure tones of crystal bowls produce a vibrational sound field which resonates the light body energy centers (chakras) and corresponding physical areas. There are seven musical notes that correspond to the seven colors of the rainbow, and these are related to the seven main chakras, which in turn correspond to different areas of the endocrine gland system. A series of pure crystal tone sessions facilitates the rebalancing of each receiver back into an elevated level of etheric radiance. The effects are enhanced because the bowls are made of quartz. Silicon crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying and transmitting pure tone. This is why pure quartz crystal is used in all the most advanced telecommunications systems.
Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal bowls transmit energy into the atmosphere, filling a person's aura with vibrational radiance which translates into the seven main colors of the rainbow.
As the pure crystal tones affect brain wave activity, one can travel into an altered state of consciousness. As different parts of the brain are affected, it is probable that different hormones and neurochemicals are released that suppress pain, overcome addictions, strengthen willpower, and foster creativity.
