Tibetan Singing Bowls & Yoga


Sound is playing an important role in my writing, as my new YA novel centers around sirens and the blues. It occurred to me in thinking about this week's Natural Healing Corner, while working on my manuscript, that sound can not only be a powerful creative inspiration but also an incredible soul healer. Think about the lullaby sung to soothe an upset baby or how humming makes your work time just zip by. Birds singing outside your home can made your hear soar.

As I have mentioned previously, I have restarted my Restorative Yoga practice. Our teacher is a Reiki Master and Certified Aromatherapist. At the Friday class I go to, she uses both scent and sound to create a magickal healing experience through yoga practice. When she places the bowl on me and hits it, especially if it is placed on my back body, near my root chakra, I get a tremendous feeling of centering. I feel firm in myself and rooted in the earth.

When placed on my chest, on or near the heart chakra, a warm feeling rushes through my center. I reverberate with love and courage. I am inspired by the Tibetan Bowl's vibrations spreading throughout my body, stemming from my heart center.


I am eager to return to this healing experience today. I know that people that visit this blog live all around the world and in many different parts of this country. No matter. You can recreate this type of healing experience, using a combination of Tibetan Singing Bowls and Restorative Yoga, doing a few simple and gentle asanas in your own space, in a way that works best for you. I have seen these bowls sold in various healing centers around the country and they are widely available on the Internet. If you feel at a loss, for how to begin with Restorative-styled Yoga and don't have a class near year, go to amazon.com or your favorite bookseller and investigate. There are many books and DVDs available to get you started.

Namaste!

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

Poof!
We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.











Gran Bwa

Gran Bwais a lwa that helps you connect to ancestral roots or the spiritual home of Vodou. A friend of mine, who is an expert on Haitian Vodou, who has spent a lot of time in Haiti with the artists there, told me I had painted Gran Bwa when I made this spontaneous work out of walnut ink and sumi-ink on handmade paper. I had considered this painting a self-portrait. She now holds this piece in her private collection:

Quite a few people are afraid of Vodou but it is an awe-inspiring tradition of bringing together plant energy with divinity, spiritual and personal energy. My friend who is very involved with Vodou, especially the art that surrounds it, is from European ancestry. She is light in spirit and bubbly, with a close relationship to nature and her garden.  Vodou affirms the relationships between cycles of life, trees of knowledge and spirit.  The Vodou vision of lwa, understands them as the intelligence of energy present in humans, nature and thoughts.  Mysteries can be understo…
