As I have only recently got my first sign bowl and really I had no idea of the proper way to use it, I signed up for a Sing Bowl Meditation in a new small store that opened in the spring only a few blocks from my home. The woman leading the session was kind enough to show me the correct way to use my small Tibetian sing bowl, purchased through Magical Necessities.
The session was amazing and if you ever have the chance to attend one I strongly suggest you do so. As many of you know I have fibromyalgia, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease that has so far left me with vertabrate on vertabrate in my neck and is eating away at almost every disc in the rest of my back so needless to say I live daily with back pain. Now usually lying on a things blanket with a pillow propping up my knees for an hour straight I would have to have someone almost pick me up off the floor. After this meditation not only was I able to roll over on my own, I also needed no help getting up. Best part my back hasn’t felt this good in months!!!
One of the coolest things to happen during the meditation is for about half of it I was either hovering in the room watching how the facilitator was performing the ritual with the singing bowls to help each of the five different people attending and also astral traveling, part of which was with my traveling partner Starbabie who is one of my familiars joined me.
The only drawback I had with the experience last evening was when one of the bowls was placed over my heart chakra it immediately recombined my astral and physical bodies. I was not able to concentrate as well during the rest of the meditation. As we sat and talked about of experiences during the meditation I brought up my interrupted travels and never really got an answer as to why this was done to me. I am however going to ask when I attend the November session.
I will be researching on the proper use of signing bowls and pass the information along with the link for Magickal Necessities link for the singing bowl they sell.
Again if you get the chance to attend one of these group meditation sessions go for it!!
