As part of my meditation practice I like to use sound to help my brain slow down.
As a musician I have been gifted with a good ear for rhythm and melody. My body, mind and mood respond to sound rapidly and match the corresponding frequency of the music I am listening to.
Recently I began experimenting with Tibetan singing bowls.
In case you are not familiar with them I have included a link below this post for you to check out.
My singing bowl is designed to resonate with my throat chakra – a center where when properly activated allows me to speak universal truth.
My singing bowl also reminded me of the tale of the Beggar’s Bowl which is retold below:
The lesson of the story is that our desire can be impossible to satisfy. No matter how hard we try to fill ourselves with external things we are left empty, wanting more.
We can however break this cycle of craving, stuffing and remaining empty only to long for more, by simply becoming aware of our desire. We can stop and appreciate what we have and the gifts already within us.
Please let me know about your bowl and the lengths you may have gone in the past to try and fill it.
