Is like a very deep and lasting massage, by tuning the physical body and soul to the greatest possible resonance, wile totally letting go. Usually laying down in your back in savasana posture, receiving the sound energy of the Gong as it is being played moving through the nervous system opening, clearing and recharging the whole mind, body and spirit.
Triggering a meditation, contemplation state in which we have the opportunity to relinquish control of the mind,. Negativity and chaos are suspended, irregularity and resistance are cleared, and the whole being is reset to a state of synchrony and alignment.
THE SACRED GONG
The gong is the spirit song.
It is the primal whisper of the soul.
Its sound is the echo of the Original Word that created the world, the sound within all sounds.
Listen with outer and inner ears.
Feel its pulsations and let the millions of vibrations dance and flow through your senses.
You will become fearless, relaxed and awakened.
The ancients sought this experience on the tops of mountains and at the Sacred places.
The voice of God would thunder in spectacular strokes of lightning.
The clap of thunder-
Bang! Shatter! Roll!. Echo!-
stopped all thought,
stripped away pretense,
shook loose the deepest fears, and
rejuvenated the nervous system.
It created strength, peace and healing.
The gong is that sound.
It is the flash of inner light.
The mallet is the will of the infinite, the gong the creation, and the sound is the spirit song, the heartbeat of the soul.
“The Gong is the first and the last instrument for the human mind.
There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind. -the sound of the Gong.
It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe.
It is the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave It birth.
The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” Yogi Bhajan
