"I spent a number of hours working with Rain in person and over the phone to select the bowls that would meet my needs. One of these includes a set of tuned bowls. I have no doubt that each bowl I purchased is among the best available on the market today. This is readily evident from the care and patience Rain takes in acquiring his product and getting to know the needs of customers like myself. No, I'm not being paid to say this.
I’ve spent many years studying and working with the effects of sound on people, the environment, and other processes. These range from the large system levels to the miniature world of quantum physics. Sound, which is the same as frequency or tone, when combined with physical geometries is truly a creative source of energy for a variety of purposes. We live in a musical universe full of sound, which is vibration…and all things have their very own unique vibrational or sound signature.
The bowls Rain provided to me are unique in their ability to produce musical notes and tones that can alter states of consciousness and have direct influence on physical and emotional processes. Scientists, musicians, and researchers in alternative forms of healing have known for many years that sound can change the state of consciousness and stimulate the natural capability of the physical body to heal.
The Tibetan singing bowls are a product that has the capability to accomplish such stimulation. However, these Tibetan bowls offer something that modern methods of sound production do not. This is the ability of these bowls to produce resonant combinations of notes that seem to be more pleasing to the human sensory system than many sounds from modern musical sources. As a result of the resonant tones and chords effects on brain frequencies, these tools can reduce stress and allow us to be more creative at the same time.
The Tibetan singing bowls are a product of a process long forgotten and surrounded in some mystery as well as history. What is more important to me is the capability of the bowls to produce a chord of tones that invokes certain influences on conscious states. Each bowl has one or two dominate tones or notes and additional harmonics that include two or more additional notes which create a chord. There are bowls that produce chords that are similar to the Mozart effect that “clear the mind” for whatever task that requires a focused attention. There are bowls that produce chords that have been used in healing music such as the perfect 5th of C and G. From a very “gut level” there are bowls that produce chords that focus an individual on the joy of the sound and this acts like a magic carpet letting your imagination expand. This can be used for creative endeavors or simply relaxing and forgetting about the modern world. I use this approach frequently."
