The true nature of the mind, he said, is Nirvana- the mind turned inward; a state of non-distraction. The absence of "I" within actions taken.
In thinking about this I realized that this is exactly the state of mind I speak of to my Tibetan bowl sound healing students when I describe "Presencing". Presencing is the ability to be with a client with no agenda, with full attention towards them. Most of us can relate to the notion of "holding the space", for something. The true nature of the mind then must be like holding the space for oneself. Just being present to what is without attachment, projection, or stories. This state of non distraction can also be described as meditation-- active or passive. Either way it is a good place to be.

Here is one of my favorite groups. Talk about Sound Healing. Sound has always been the ambassador of Peace.. It defies class, economic status, race, religion.... it calls to the best part of us all and opens hearts. Listen, donate, meditate and pass on the good vibes to all your friends.

"Whatever attitudes we habitually use toward ourselves, we will use on others, and whatever attitutes we habitually use on others, we will use on ourselves. This situation is comparable to serving food to ourselves and to other people from the same bowl. Everyone ends up eating the same thing-we must examine carefully what we are dishing out. "
-Bhante Heneopla GUnaratana- Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness"
Fortunately, we have support: Positive people, books and activities that help to shift our thinking patterns from rote to chosen train us. Sound healing sessions and meditations with the Tibetan Singing Bowls are effective in helping us to become conscious of our belief systems and actions, and to reawaken us to our true essence, which is always compassionate and loving. This is their purpose, to transform consciousness and create healing.

In addition, the vagus nerve, known as the traveler nerve, goes from out brain stem to all the major organs in our bodies. This nerve has antennas in our inner ear so the healing properties of the singing bowls is also delivered in this manner to speed up the healing process.

Using Tibetan bowls in sessions works as in internal opiate and reduces pain as it initiates the relaxation response. This, combined with cardiorespiratory synchronization creates of the body a perfect container for healing. It has been my experience that people who are not accustomed to meditating (as well as those who are) are able to achieve a deep level of altered consciousness much faster during singing bowl sessions than in other forms of meditation.

Using Music for Brain Food
School is very competitive these days. Actually life is very competitive. Everyone is looking for a way to get a little edge over the next guy or gal. Although I believe that cooperation and not competition is the way to go, maximizing your brain's potential certainly can't hurt. Today there is ample research documenting that that music is far more than just entertainment. And yet we know that when school officials cut the budget, music is one of the first things to go. In a recent study headlined "TEXAS ALL-STATE MUSICIANS SCORE 196 POINTS ABOVE NATIONAL AVERAGE ON THE 2000 SAT" the Texas music educators association reported that students involved in orchestra, band, or chorus had higher scores on their SAT's than students who were not involved in a music program. The students who scored highest were those in the schools' string orchestras.

The Tibetan instruments are all about the interconnectedness of all things. All things, no exceptions. It is much easier to be open to feelings of universal connectedness when it comes to what we know and love... The whole point of sound healing, and especially of the gong.. is to help us to stretch our boundaries to that which feels like a challenge. The belief is that everyone has the seed of the divine within them.. What they do with it can be a manifestation of love or hate. But the seed, the essence is always one of divine perfection. And all of us..have the ability to express love or hate.. we have all human emotion within us and we have choice as to what we do with it. When you hear the gong and you allow its strong vibrations to course through you - you are opening and accepting of what could be a huge and painful challenge should you decide to resist it. The mention of Hitler is only to say, that we recognize it all- the entire spectrum of human behavior because it is part of us all.. I think we all recognize that the direction Hitler took was an abaration but the sound is about getting to a place of compassion that is so deep that we can condemn the behavior but still recognize the essence within any human being. It is not easy but it is the mark of expanding consciousness.

“Ancient Sounds ~ Modern Healing” is an extraordinary adventure filled with secrets from age-old cultures - along with the latest findings from today’s cutting-edge scientists - to take with Jill Mattson (author, composer, musician and artist). Her music and books glean techniques she discovered during her intense 17 year study of Antiquities and Secret Societies - who utilized sound as a profound tool to transform people’s consciousness and to create physiological changes in the brain - to dramatically heal mind, body and spirit. Ancient societies touted that music shaped people’s consciousness and could be designed for rapid spiritual growth. They designed music to balance astrological energy, energy of the seasons and to aid humanity in learning lessons. Ms. Mattson shares the precise ways that you can do the same things for yourself. She offers complementary sound healing mp3’s and sound healing newsletter at www.jillshealingmusic.com. Take an audible journey into the heavens and listen to this spiritual and uplifting music at www.jillswingsoflight.com.

The books explore the potentials of consciousness using multiple ways of knowing. These include intuition, feeling, reason, the five human senses, and two additional senses that Jordan postulates “glow,” and “vibration.”

days out at sea and were delighted when a large pod of gray whales came near us to breach for about an hour. The sight of their huge bodies bounding in and out of the water was magnificent, but the booming sound of their voices silenced us. It was like a call from beyond time and space. It touched a part of my soul that recognized the connection to all things. Upon return home, this quote arrived on my computer:
" For there is nothing in this world that can help one spiritually more than music. Meditation prepares, but music is the highest for touching perfection."
Yesterday, I conducted a Tibetan bowl sound healing session with one of my cancer clients. She said that each visit is like a sound meditation that leaves her with a sense of infinity. I realize that is also what I felt in the presence of the whale calls. There are just so many opportunities to feel gratitude in this life.

A guide for those who have lost their ways
A ship for those with oceans to cross
a bridge for those with rivers to cross
a sanctuary for those in danger
a lamp for those without light
a place of refuge for those who lack shelter
and a servant to all in need.
- 14th Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso)
On another note I seek new venues to perform my sound healing Tibetan Bowl and Planetary Gong Sacred Sound concert in. I have toured with this concert for over six years and now offer a new performance. The areas I seek are in Arizona, anywhere in California or Nevada side of the Sierra's and in northern California. Space needs to be large enough to hold a minimum of 35 people. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and have a look at the video here
