Sound Healing Demystified
The Balinese Bell
The unique sound of the Balinese Bell, clear and sustained, renders it ideal for assessing one’s energy field via scanning around the body. Because of its clear and resonant tone, the bell will ring without disruption to the tone unless its vibrations come into contact with irregular vibrations, namely, unhealthy vibrations in a one’s energy field. This indicates a pattern of disturbance.
To understand this more fully, it helps to know that the body emits phonons, or vibrational energy that make up quantum sound waves, from the body at all times. (Have you ever gotten a bad ‘vibe’ from someone?). Although imperceptible to the human ear, the unique chemical properties and construction of the bell allow the bell to react if a disturbance presents itself in the vibrational patterns of these phonons into the energetic field. (The energetic field is sometimes referred to as the aura or biofield).
A disturbance can be a depletion or an excess, let us say in the chakra (seven energy centers) regions of the body. It could also be energy emitted in an area of the body where there has been a traumatic injury, for example the knees or the ankles. It can also detect whether or not the disturbance lies in the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and or soul realm of the body, depending on where the sound healer scans with the bell. Maybe there has been emotional trauma associated with the heart chakra, or a spiritual disturbance detected around the area of the throat, where we communicate. The bell would detect such disturbances.
If the bell sound suddenly drops off or becomes audibly quieter, this will indicate a depletion from the status quo energy level and would require nurturing or fortifying with healthy sound energy. Conversely, if the amplitude increases, or a fizzling quality presents itself, the area in question could be an excess in energy. If an excess exists, the energy pattern would need to be broken up and released before the recalibrating or nourishing process takes place. The nourishing, or nurturing, can be done with the bell, or with another sound healing instrument such as a Tibetan bowl or a tuning fork.
All of this would be done during the assessment stage of a sound healing, providing the sound healer with valuable information on how best to treat the client and facilitate healing.
The Balinese Bell, also known as a Ghanta Bell, has several other uses such as activating the seven chakras, balancing the right and left hemisphere of the brain, absolving of sin, and many other uses beyond the scope of this article. I invite you to read about it here. It has also proven to a recourse in revitalizing the energy in building, otherwise known as space clearing. You can find out more here.

“I ring this bell indicating the invocation of divinity, so that virtuous and noble forces enter (my home and heart), and the demonic and evil forces from within and without, depart from my home and heart.”
