What are Tibetan Singing Bowls?

We also call them Himalayan bowls. The Tibetan Singing Bowl is a unique type of bell that vibrates and generates a distinctive deep sound when played. There are over 50 varieties of Tibetan Singing Bowls. Rumor has it that these bowls are made of an alloy of up to 15 different metals.

Out of the original, only three are preserved in Tibet in memory of ancient Tibetan monks. They still use them to date to teach the four noble truths, broadness, and emptiness. It’s only recently that some Buddhist monks have started using them in meditation. In some practices, therapists also use them in their work.

What is Their Purpose?

By tapping the Tibetan Singing Bowls, we produce vibrations identified as sound. This energy from the waves is then harnessed by being focused on the present to administer therapy. It is a type of healing that has been used over a long time and dates back to 2500 years.

Traditionally, spiritual practices in Tibet involved producing music using ancient instruments such as horns, singing bowls, bells, and tingshas. However, it is only recently that the popularity of sound therapy has gained traction.

How to Use Tibetan Singing Bowls

To produce the intended outcome you have to learn how to hold the bowl and the stroke. The key is to relish the moment.

Here is how you do it:

  • Press the outer edge of the bowl in a clockwise motion using the mallet. Do this by rotating your full arm and not your wrist.
  • Now slow down at the onset of a clear sound.

You can also do the same on the outer belly of the bowl. 5 to 10 minutes should be enough with the focus being on the sound and not the melody you are creating.

The Healing Power of the Tibetan Singing Bowls

Each part of the body resonates at a specific frequency. You are healthy when the particular cells in the organs are in harmony with your whole being. When ill, the energy in the respective cells in your body is out of balance. In other words, when you break this harmonious order such that the vibrations from your cells are out of tune, then you have a “dis-ease.”

For the singing bowls, the key is the energy that is produced by the vibrations. They create positive energy that corrects that imbalance and creates consistency.

What happens is that through training, your brain waves synchronize with the sounds produced creating distinct sounds (theta brainwave frequencies). It’s these tones that will increase your awareness leading to deep meditation that eliminates imbalances either emotionally or spiritually.

In addition, the longer you listen, the deeper you relax because there is a marriage between the brainwaves and the vibrations produced. This buries you in the present or puts you “in the zone.” Holding it in your hands intensifies the waves consequently affecting you directly on a cellular level.

What are the Benefits?

Despite their long usage, Tibetan Singing Bowls have a number of advantages that can’t go unnoticed:

  1. Boosting brainpower

By clearing blockages, the vibrations enable free circulation of blood in the brain cells, which improves the clarity of mind and concentration. The brain can now function at full capacity due to the better interconnections between the nerve cells. It is also important to note that the enhanced flow allows the growth and survival of neurons.

  1. Deep relaxation

The world is moving quicker than before, and it gets overwhelming at times. Sometimes you feel like sitting by the sidelines and watch it pass by.

There is no better feeling than being deeply relaxed. The sound creates vibrations that improve blood circulation, which puts you in an open state feeling relaxed. Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is loosen up. Relax, refresh and revive.

  1. Better blood circulation

Whenever we interfere with blood flow, your body will always go off-balance. A feeling of being sick or being tired gently creeps in.

Because blood is the engine that runs your body, you need it firing in all cylinders. Sound can be the antidote that brings down those barriers for a smooth run.

  1. Pain relief

Pain is a dreadful feeling caused by extreme stimuli. It could be a symptom of an underlying condition, which means energy is not flowing as expected. Like a thunderbolt, the energy from the sound comes smashing through these walls resulting in relief.

  1. Cutting through mind clutter

Challenges are a part of life, and this can take a toll on you. Are you frustrated with no breakthroughs forthcoming? Just tap your Tibetan singing bowl and boom, your mental barrier is gone.

  1. Improved immunity

This involves your body putting up a formidable defense against infections. With the energy from the sound clearing blockages, white blood cells can roam freely and neutralize any imminent threats.

  1. Better sleep

Maybe you have a hard time getting into dreamland, or the quality of your sleep is wanting. A dinner date with the singing bowls can wash your troubles away. Play them and feel the sound put your body eased up and peaceful.

Just like that, your abusive relationship with sleep is fixed.

  1. Positive self-image

Whenever each cell in your body is in harmony, there is a feeling of peace within you. You eliminate negativity, and you feel in touch with your best self. It’s only this way that you can be able to tackle life’s most significant challenges and come out victorious in the end.

  1. Unveiling your best self

In life, you lose touch with who you are. There is so much noise that somewhere along the way you get lost. The Good thing is that the Tibetan singing bowls can help retrace your steps towards your best self by refocusing your energy on what matters.

Where to Find Tibetan Singing Bowls

You can find these bowls online, in music shops, yoga studios, and even wellness centers. The better the quality of your Tibetan Singing Bowls, the higher the quality of sound produced.

Deep down, everyone has the ultimate goal of being the best version of themselves. It’s a struggle, yes, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

The Tibetan singing bowls can help you on that journey, but it all comes back to you.

Humming Bee Breath: a Simple Technique For Anxiety Relief

Published

on

Humming Bee Breath Image

When we are anxious, on the physical level we begin to breathe shallowly using the upper part of the lungs. Our inhales and exhales become short and sharp. Contrarily, when we are relaxed, we breathe slower using the diaphragm. The lengthening of the exhalation (compared to the inhalation) maintains a healthy level of carbon dioxide in the blood, which helps us relax. Bhramari pranayama, also known as Humming Bee breath, helps to reduce the level of anxiety and relax. In this article, we will share with you what Bhramari pranayama is, what its benefits are, and how to perform it.

What Is Pranayama?

Prana‘ is the Sanskrit word for breath, “life force”, or “vital principle”. ‘Ayāma‘ can be translated as “the suspension of breath” or “control”. Thus, “pranayama” can be translated as “control over vital energy”.

Most often, pranayama is associated with breathing exercises that have a beneficial effect on the body, saturating it with oxygen. However, yogis use this technique not only for the purpose of improving their physical bodies but also as a way of controlling the flow of prana (vital energy).

Prana is the vital energy that fills everything in the Universe. It saturates all living things with life, providing physical bodies with strength. Breathing allows us to absorb prana and control its flow. It is believed that the basis of the entire existence consists of “energy” and “consciousness”, which are very closely interrelated. Prana gives energy to the forming of consciousness.

Murcha Pranayama Benefits Image

According to Patanjali, pranayama is the length of time between inhalation and exhalation. During this period, the time of assimilation of prana increases, the fluctuations of the mind decrease and the perception expands. But how is it possible to reduce the excitation of the brain by holding the breath? This is due to the fact that nerve impulses in some parts of the body are suspended, and the structure of brain waves is harmonized. Therefore, pranayama is one of the most important elements of Hatha yoga.

What Is Humming Bee Breath?

This pranayama derives its name from the black Indian bee called Bhramari. Bhramari = type of Indian bee; pranayama = breathing technique. This pranayama is named so because of the humming sound produced at the back of the throat during the practice – like the gentle humming of a bee.

The Benefits of the Humming Bee Breath

Bhramari pranayama, or Humming Bee Breath, is a safe and easy-to-learn practice that has tremendous therapeutic potential. Here are the benefits of performing Humming Bee Breath:

  • It has a beneficial effect on the thyroid, parathyroid, and thymus glands;
  • Calms the nervous system;
  • Relieves tension and anxiety;
  • Helps you fall asleep quickly, relieves insomnia;
  • Makes the voice melodic, strengthens the ligaments;
  • Helps with diseases of the throat and larynx, as well as nasal congestion.
  • Relieves headaches and migraines.
  • Improves memory and concentration.
  • Reduces blood pressure.
  • Vibrations that occur in the body help the cells to remove toxins.
  • Builds confidence.
  • It prepares you for deep meditation.

How to Perform Bhramari Pranayama?

Bhramari Pranayama Image

The technique of performing Bhramari Pranayama is quite simple and does not require special training. It can be performed at any time of the day and even after having a meal. Also, it has no age restrictions.

Instructions:

  1. Sit in any position that is comfortable for you with a straight back and relaxed shoulders.
  2. Close the lips, keeping the teeth slightly apart.
  3. Bring the tip of your tongue to the space behind the upper front teeth. Maintain this position throughout the practice, frequently checking to ensure that the jaw remains relaxed.
  4. Close each ears with the thumbs, place the index fingers at the midpoint of the forehead – just above the eyebrows – and reach the middle, ring, and pinky fingers across the eyes so that the tips of these fingers press very gently against the bridge of the nose.  
  5. Take a long, deep breath in through the nostrils, bringing the breath all the way into the belly.
  6. Drop the chin to the chest and begin to exhale slowly, making a steady, low-pitched ‘hmmm’ sound at the back of the throat – like the humming of a bee. Focus on making the sound soft, smooth, and steady.
  7. Keep the body completely still and bring your awareness to the center of the head – to your Third eye chakra – letting the sound fill the head and spread to the body.
  8. At the end of the exhalation, slowly straighten your neck as you inhale again through the nostrils to repeat the process.

This is one breathing cycle. Start mastering this pranayama with 7 breathing cycles and gradually increase to 20-30.

After performing the Humming Bee breath practice, do not rush to open your eyes, stay in a meditative state, observe the sensations in the body, sounds, and smells in the surrounding space.

Additional tips:

  • This pranayama does not require much effort, so you should never feel a lack of air during the humming process. If you still feel a lack of air, shorten the duration of the exhalation.
  • During the practice, keep your body relaxed – there should be no unpleasant or painful sensations, tension, or tremor of the limbs, loss of balance, or emotional anxiety.
  • If you find it difficult to relax in a sitting position, then try to lie down, but keep in mind that in a lying position, this technique will have a strong hypnotic effect.
  • Instead of “M-m-m-m-m”, you can say “A-U-M” or “OM”.
  • During the hum, you can hold the Mula Bandha (Root Lock).

Warning

It is not recommended to practice Bhramari pranayama for those people who have an ear infection or epilepsy.

Unlocking The Power Of Vishuddha Chakra: The Gift Of Divine Eloquence

Published

on

Vishuddha chakra healing image

Vishuddha, or the throat chakra, is also known as the communication center. When it is not balanced, it can manifest itself in various ways, including excessive chatter, arrogance, dishonesty, timidity, fear, and a tendency to manipulate others. A person whose throat chakra is balanced has an excellent oratory talent, knows how to express himself in a balanced way, is a good listener that can hear and understand, and knows how to establish harmony between emotions and thoughts.

In this article, I want to share with you what you could be capable of if you unlocked the power of your Throat chakra. I will share the most effective practices you can use to tap into the full potential of your voice and increase your oratory abilities. Are you already excited? Let’s dive into this!

What Is Vishuddha?

Vishuddha can be translated into English as “especially pure”.

Vishuddhi, or Vishuddha, essentially means filter. If your Vishuddhi is active, it filters everything. Poisons can enter you in many ways – a wrong thought, emotion, idea, energy, or impulse can poison your life. An active Vishuddhi saves you from all these influences. In other words, once your Vishuddhi is active, whatever happens around you will not have an impact on you anymore. You will be established within yourself. And you tend to become a powerful being. 

Sadhguru

Vishuddha is the fifth primary chakra positioned at the throat area, near the spine. Due to its position, it is known as the throat chakra.

Hindu tradition describes this chakra as a white color sphere with sixteen purple or smoke-colored petals. Within the sphere, there is a sky-blue downward pointing triangle containing a circular white region like the full moon. This represents the element of akasha or “aether.”

Usually, Vishuddha is depicted as a circle with 16 petals, each containing a Sanskrit letter describing the positive qualities of the individual. There is a triangle inscribed in the circle, the top of which looks down. Inside the triangle there is another small circle, symbolizing the Ether and the Moon.

Vishuddha is a symbol of purity, a morning-blooming Lotus flower that concentrates perfection and beauty.

Through the throat center, we express our thoughts and talents, achieve the highest form of self-expression. The throat chakra is an insight, an observation of the essence of life without any illusions, a kind of creative ecstasy.

The throat chakra is considered the driving force of human talents. The best poems, paintings, and music are created through the power of Vishuddha.

By means of the “Divine eloquence” that Vishuddha bestows, we are able to transcend any external limitations, to unite the inner and physical worlds in our own essence.

What Is Vishuddha Responsible For?

The throat chakra is responsible for:

  • communication;
  • self-expression;
  • interaction with the surrounding world;
  • hearing and trusting the inner voice;
  • the process of self-identification;
  • the “birth” of a unique personality;
  • the originality of thinking;
  • inspiration;
  • creative potential;
  • honesty;
  • forgiveness;
  • oratory potential;
  • the ability to listen to others and understand them;
  • confidence;
  • informational and energetical influence;
  • charisma;
  • charm;
  • beautiful speech;
  • eloquence;
  • creative expression of feelings;
  • courage to express feelings and emotions, speak own truth;
  • vocal potential;
  • the ability to see the beauty in simple things;
  • moral beauty and responsibility;
  • the manifestation of personality;
  • ability to keep secrets;
  • the purity of thought and hearing;
  • a clear expression of thoughts when communicating.

Also, Vishuddha is responsible for the health of such organs as:

  • cervical department;
  • vocal cords;
  • the thyroid and parathyroid glands;
  • jaws;
  • teeth;
  • the upper part of the lungs;
  • shoulders, arms, muscles;
  • ears;
  • throat;
  • nose.

All diseases related to the ears, throat, nose, teeth, as well as allergic rhinitis, weak immune system, lung and bronchial diseases, stuttering, diseases of the oral cavity, bad breath, inflammation of the thyroid gland, are a small fraction of the problems associated with an imbalance of the throat chakra.

Blocked, Closed & Unbalanced Throat Chakra

throat blocks image

If you find it difficult to express your true feelings and thoughts, or you lack confidence in expressing your own ideas and visions, that could be a sign of blocked or unbalanced Throat chakra.

If your fifth chakra is closed or blocked, you probably often experience frustration when it comes time to express your true feelings. You may feel like you can’t find the right words to share what you feel with others. It also could be hard for you to tell people what you want or don’t want, what you like and don’t like. You may feel like it’s not important to express your true feelings because it may seem like nobody cares.

Throat chakra can be also affected by different forms of fear. Do you feel like you might be ridiculed for sharing your ideas? Or maybe you are afraid to offend someone with your truthfulness? Such fears can be also the symptoms of blocked Throat chakra.

Another symptom of unbalanced Throat chakra is a desire to stay away from people, inability to enjoy any communication with others.

Problems with the fifth chakra often lead to a number of physical ailments that include thyroid disease, hearing problems, tonsillitis, mouth ulcers, tinnitus, bronchitis, asthma, and ear infections.

These are some other symptoms of imbalanced Throat chakra:

  • difficulty in expressing thoughts;
  • fear of public speaking;
  • profanity;
  • grumbling;
  • lie;
  • criticism and self-criticism.

How to Balance Vishuddha?

Now let me share with you the most effective practices and tips for opening and balancing your Throat chakra.

#1: Breathing Exercises

Pranayama for Throat chakra image

Sit in a comfortable position with your eyes closed.

Focus on your breathing. Inhale through the nose, then the air should pass through the back of the throat to the lungs.

Now slowly exhale through your mouth.

Repeat this exercise for at least 8 times.

#2: Guided Meditation

Guided meditation can be an excellent tool for opening and balancing your Throat chakra.

#3: Yantra Meditation

Yantra is a unique mystical symbol used for meditation. Yantra for the Throat chakra is a triangle pointing downwards. Inside the triangle, there is a circle. When you’re meditating on Vishuddha yantra you activate a powerful healing energy that helps you to heal and balance your Throat chakra.

Vishuddha Yantra Meditation

For performing a Vishuddha Yantra meditation you need a picture of a Vishuddha Yantra. You can draw it by hand, print it, or use a video animation.

Take a pose for meditation. The spine should be straight. Place the picture of the yantra next to you so that you can see it well.

Start focusing on the yantra. The three sides of the triangle represent the past, present, and future. The circle inside the triangle indicates the dormant psychic abilities in each of us. We get our freedom when we manage to open the throat chakra. However, your main attention should be focused on the continuation of spiritual development and the acquisition of Divine consciousness.

Now it is time to think about your ways of communicating with others. What kind of atmosphere do you create around you? Are you ready to deepen your communication with others?

In the following days, watch your behavior. What and how do you say? What do you bring to the surrounding space — goodness or disharmony?

After completing your thoughts, sit still for a couple of minutes.

#4: Color Visualization

Vishuddha visualization image

Close your eyes and visualize beautiful bright blue light. Inhale as you visualize this light and imagine that this light fills the area of your throat with cleansing and healing energy. When you exhale, imagine that you are relieving stress and tension. Keep doing this visualization for at least 10 minutes.

#5: Yoga

When practicing yoga, focus on the asanas that help to open and heal your throat chakra:

1. Shoulder stand is an inverted yoga pose that stretches the back of the neck while strengthening the spine and core muscles.

2. Plow pose is a yoga posture that strengthens and lengthens the back and neck.

3. Sasangasana is a kneeling forward bend which rounds the back as much as possible to lengthen the spine and create space in the thoracic region of the back.

4. Bhujangasana is a reclining back-bending asana in hatha yoga.

#6: Matsya Mudra

Matsya is the Sanskrit word for “fish” and mudra means “a gesture of the hand”. Practicing this mudra will not only help you to balance your Vishuddha chakra but also increases your memory, clears your mind, and provides relaxation and serenity.

Instructions:

  1. sit in any comfortable seating posture and place the hands with palms pointing upwards on the thighs or the knees.
  2. Close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths with the awareness of the breathing process.
  3. Bring the fingers of both of your hands together with thumbs extended. 
  4. Stack the right hand on top of the left with thumbs extended. 
  5. Hold your hands in front of your abdomen or relax them onto your lap.
  6. Relax and breathe. 
  7. While holding the mudra repeat these words: “Bathed in waves of nourishing energy, my body moves freely and comfortable”.

It is recommended to practice this mudra for 10-15 minutes three times a day.

#7: Mantra Chanting

Vishuddha chakra mantra is “HAM”. When you’re chanting the mantra you need to feel the vibration in the area of your throat chakra.

To perform HAM mantra for your throat chakra healing you need to:

  1. take a deep breath;
  2. at the moment of exhalation, open your lips and sing the beginning of the mantra: “ha-a-a…»;
  3. close your lips and sing the ending: “m-m-m-m»;
  4. then take another breath and repeat the cycle.

While singing the mantra feel the expanding of the throat chakra. Visualize that the neck and throat are filled with pure blue light. Continue for at least 5 minutes.

At the end of the exercise, you will feel the energy pulsating in the neck area. It is a sign of the throat chakra activation.

#8: Journaling

If your chakra is blocked it might be very difficult to speak out your truth and share your feelings with others. You can try journaling instead.

Journaling is a mindful practice that’s been shown to reduce stress and anxiety as well as to help people to express their feelings and emotions through writing.

It is very beneficial to write down all your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, especially if you don’t feel comfortable sharing them with others. Writing will help you remove the block from your throat, especially if you will read what you wrote out loud.

#9: Crystal Healing

Another powerful tool for opening your throat chakra is crystal healing. You can use crystals during your meditations or Reiki sessions. Just place the crystal on your Throat during your energy healing – it will increase the effect of the session.

Another option is to wear a necklace with one of Throat chakra crystals.

Vishuddha chakra crystals:

  • lapis lazuli;
  • blue calcite;
  • aquamarine;
  • turquoise;
  • sodalite;
  • amazonite;
  • blue tourmaline.

#10: Healing Power Of Nature

The element of Vishuddha chakra is ether. Therefore spending time outside under the blue sky is already healing itself. Spend more time outside, surround yourself with nature, looking and meditating on the blue sky.

#11: Aromatherapy

Using aromatherapy is another wonderful tool you can use for balancing your Vishuddha chakra. Essential oils can help you to remove blocks and heal your Throat chakra. For this purpose, you can use sandalwood and lavender essential oils.

You can use these oils in the aromatherapy diffuser, add them to your massage oil, or burn them in the aromatherapy essential oils burner.

The Bottom Line

Each chakra represents a spiritual life lesson to help us gain a more in-depth understanding of our inner potential and power. Vishuddha is connected to the way we express our life with utmost authenticity. It is about communicating our thoughts, true feelings, and intentions clearly and accurately. The main lesson that Vishuddha teaches us is how to expand our voice and will power.

It also teaches us how to see the truth beyond maya (illusion), how to vocalize our authentic self, and how to stop lying to ourselves. When we activate the Vishuddha Chakra, we drop the importance of social conditioning and we awaken to our true human potential.
