Sound Healing with Alia Megahed
My name is Alia aka Loulii, I am an Ashtanga yoga teacher and I am a Singing Bowls practitioner, which are a set of vibrational meditation tools. I came across them during a healing circle in a workshop I was attending, and I felt how powerful they are; they helped me release feelings I had suppressed for years and wasn't aware of them. So, I decided I wanted to help others release as I did, as well as tune more into their true self through the sound vibrations of the Singing Bowls. Consequently, I decided to go on a journey to Nepal to learn more about them and what happened was that I returned back certified to use these beautiful bowls on your beautiful selves.
What are Singing Bowls?
Singing Bowls are one of the ancient Tibetan meditation tools; its vibrational effects put the brain into a meditative state.
Traditionally they are made out of 7 metals, corresponding to 7 Planets, that are as organs of our solar system the planets and their cyclic rhythms influence the physical organs of man and his psyche.
1. Mercury induces the rhythm of thoughts and communication (MERCURY).
2. Venus stimulates love (COPPER).
3. Mars activates desires and passions (IRON),
4. while Jupiter brings feelings of devotion (TIN).
5. Saturn is for higher thoughts and the manifestation of consciousness (LEAD).
6. The Sun both synthesizes and is the source of inner light (GOLD).
7. The Moon reflects this light and elicits emotions (SILVER).
How can sound / singing bowl help heal, and how does it work?
It can be said that illness is a manifestation of dis-harmony within the body—an imbalance in the cells or a given organ.
Sound from Singing Bowls allow the brain to move into the Theta brain wave frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition. Their sound synchronizes brain waves and enhances awareness of the mind/body connection.
The sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex and reducing the stress or pain response.
Singing bowls are used to balance the energy and clears blockages in the body (Chakra blockages), Subconscious connection, meditation, High levels of creativity, also for Stress and anxiety reduction, depression, and most forms of dis-ease.
Come find me at The Monastery Festival, where I will be holding space for a group chakra balancing meditation, with the Singing Bowls; and there'll also be one-on-one sessions.
