Sound Healing Demystified
I would like to share with you some fascinating information about Koshi chimes. Perhaps you use some of these chimes in your own practice whether that be sound, reike, massage, etc. It started just with my own curiosity. I will share the email exchange that I had with the designer of the Koshi Chimes.
Hi! I love your Koshi Chimes. I have the whole set and have been using them in my sound healing practice for over 2 years now. I was wondering how you chose the tuning for each one. For example, why did you feel drawn to put in the terra chime the CEG and F? I would love to know more about the rationale behind your construction of these beautiful instruments. Thank you!
With love, Aria
To which I received a very gracious reply:
That is not an easy question…
I guess it just started with one tuning, playing around with chords, imitating the sound of the chimes on my keyboard and listening to the combinations of notes and their harmonics. Much of the time I was meditating and listening to all kinds of music from many cultures around the world.
Intuitively I associated sound combinations with the four elements. The challenge was to create a second tuning that I wished to sound in harmony with the first. And from there it went on for the others.
So, what was the rationale…?
Maybe this beautiful quote from Blaise Pascal explains it all: "The heart has its reasons that reason does not know."
Thank you for your kind email. I’m glad that like them. And our whole team is happy to create and bring them into the world.
All best to you,
So there you have it!
