Tibetan Singing Bowls
So it's been kind of chaotic around here recently: Holley and I just moved to a nearby city and we have much less storage space here (but far more sunlight in our kitchen which I find to be very motivating), we're working on BIG changes to The Primal Desire (which you will hopefully see before Christmas), and I'm still adapting to being back from my month in Bali. So when Jessica from Vancouver contacted me about her small business, Shanti Bowl, offering to send us a Tibetan singing bowl, I was excited!
I have played with Tibetan singing bowls before, but when I've looked into buying them, I've found that they were either tiny and not very good quality, or very expensive. But this bowl has quality sound and very reasonably priced.
Tibetan singing bowls have many uses: yoga, meditation, music therapy and sound healing, reducing stress, balancing chakras, and can be very relaxing – which is why I thought Jessica's timing couldn't be better. Take a look/listen:
These singing bowls produce two notes: B note (which resonates with the crown chakra) when struck, and F note (which vibrates with the heart chakra) when “singing” from running the mallet around the rim. I found that there is a bit of a learning curve to getting it to sing, but after checking out their FAQ and a little practice, it was easier than I thought.
I think that when things have calmed down a bit that I will make implementing a new healthy morning routine a higher priority which will include a few moments enjoying the vibrations of this bowl. I know – right now when everything is crazy is exactly when I should be putting this practice into motion, and you're right. But I am working on it. In fact, I bought 2 books from Intelligent Change for Holley and I: the Productivity Planner and the 5 Minute Journal. Both of these books are full of great tips and useful tools to change the way you approach your day.
And of course, some improvement on my eating habits are needed: the two weeks of driving back and forth during the move was full of *gasp!* fast food. Duh-duh-duhhhhhh…. Not surprisingly, I felt like garbage throughout that time and it made me less able to deal with things physically, mentally, and emotionally. It was actually kind of an interesting experiment. I've since been way better and feeling much better as well. Nice little reminder as to what not eating well feels like.
So, that's what I'm planning for the New Year. Have you thought about the changes you want to make yet?
I can't wait to visit the family for a few days for Christmas. And Holley is coming again this year! What are your holiday plans? What are your holiday food plans? I need to make more fenugreek sauce so I can make Smashed Potato Bacon Benny with Creamy Fenugreek Sauce for the family. And to give away as gifts!
