While digging in a mess of a linen closet looking for a sewing kit yesterday, I heard this “ding” that made me turn around. It sounded like someone hit a Buddhist bowl or some other type of musical bowl. I even got up and checked my front door to make sure no one had rung my doorbell (but it didn’t sound like a doorbell). It sounded more like a clairaudient “ding” anyway, but I always doubt myself and check for practical explanations. But, I realized this was someone in spirit and I assumed the person was just saying “hello”. My uncle, Chuck, has rung my doorbell more than once, so I just assumed this was something similar and said “hello” back and went on with my day.
I’ve been really bad about checking my calendar on my Android phone lately to see what I’ve got going on. I think I need to go back to a physical calendar that catches my attention as I’ve missed some things I was supposed to do. Anyway, I went to put something in my Google calendar via the phone and saw that the weekly crystal bowl meditation at Crystal Dove was happening last night. I had totally forgotten about it and had wanted to finally attend the gathering. Then I realized that someone in spirit had been alerting me to the crystal bowl meditation and that he/she clearly wanted me to go. I was just too dense to initially understand the “ding”. That is NOT atypical for me. 🙂
I’ve never heard crystal bowls being played before…and the sound is AMAZING and POWERFUL. The picture I’ve included in this blog is exactly what Inga’s bowls looked like. (Inga owns the store.) Before she began the actual meditation, Inga explained to us newbies that she, and others, have been trying to help New Mexico become a more prosperous place and lift the vibration of the state up via energy work. Crystals have been placed at each of the 4 corners of the state, along with crystals in the NE, NW, SE, and SW corners of Albuquerque…with another crystal north of Albuquerque on the 25 highway and another on the 25 south of Albuquerque. Then, those who take part in the weekly meditation visualize both the state of New Mexico and the city of Albuquerque covered with pyramids that are anchored with the physical crystals that have been planted. New Mexico has a terrible issue of “poverty mentality/lesser than” and Inga and friends are working hard to shift this magical state’s whole success/prosperity energy. I have found it interesting that a state that is so incredibly powerful spiritually, is so financially poor. A current issue that bugs me is that they want to lower the requirements to graduate high school to meet the low performance of the students. What?! That is moronic. But, I digress. What is being done every Saturday night at Crystal Dove is important. This state needs it. It IS a wonderful place and should be powerful in ALL ways…not just spiritually.
Also, before she starts playing the bowls, Inga has everyone put whatever other intentions they want to put into the meditation. Each person says their name and then their intention(s).
I started off sitting in a chair but quickly realized I needed to lay down on the floor because the sounds from the bowls was so magical. At various times during the hour and a half or so, I felt tingling at the back of my head and tingles go through other parts of me. I also felt the bones in my head vibrating in resonance with the bowls sometimes. The sound from the crystal bowls was really powerful. I had been told many years ago by a British medium that it would be sound that finally healed me (of my chronic neck/head pain) but back then, I couldn’t figure out what that sound could be. I think I now know. Towards the end of the evening, I got physically uncomfortable on my back, so I stayed on the floor but sat up Indian style. Immediately, I got REALLY dizzy…but dizzy in a way that felt different than normal dizziness. Similar to what I felt sometimes when healer Eric Pearl worked on me back in the 1990s, I felt myself spiraling around inside my physical body. I kind of felt like I was swirling in a funnel shape. Also, at various times during the night, I had random clairvoyant visions of celestial looking buildings and big hour glass looking things.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I should have gone to the weekly meditation long ago! Oh well. I’ll definitely attend again. If you are in the Albuquerque area and want to take part, you need to arrive before 8 p.m. on Saturdays. Inga accepts donations, but there is no set fee. It was very relaxing and healing feeling, and at the very least, you’ll sleep great afterward!
