Have you ever seen someone rub their finger along the rim of a wine glass? Sometimes this will cause a vibration so strong that they glass may ‘sing’, or make a pleasant humming sound. This action would cause vibrations wither the sound was present or not– these vibrations are due to harmonic resonance. Harmonic resonance that causes a vessel to vibrate can charge water with healing energies.
What is Charged Water?
Charged water has distinct qualities that regular tap water or spring water is lacking. The difference is so pronounced that if you drink it, you can actually taste the difference.
Charged water is known for its healing and revitalizing properties. Drinking charged water will help you feel refreshed, improve your health and vitality. Just bathing in it can lift the mood and lighten the spirit, making you feel as though you’ve gone through a spiritual cleansing.
Even plants and animals are not immune to the water charged with harmonic resonance; try pouring some charged water on your plants and watch them flourish, or put it into your pet’s water bowl and see his spirits perk up.
Traditionally, water has been charged in vessels known as Tibetan singing bowls. These special bowls—originally made of metal but also now found made of crystal or glass—create the vibrations when a tool is rubbed around the rim of the bowl. These bowls have long been used for meditation purposes, to induce trances or to heal through sound waves.
Occasionally, to change the frequency, water would be poured into the bowls in varying amounts. If you’ve ever seen someone ‘play the water glasses’, then you’ve seen that the sound changes with the amount of the water in the glass. This water, when used, is found to be a powerful improvement over plain water.
How to Charge Water
If you’ve got a Tibetan singing bowl, you can charge water simply by partially filling the bowl before using it. Rub the rim in a clockwise motion to promote positive energy vibrations. You’ll notice that if you stop for a while, then start up again, the water will vibrate even more quickly, as if it retains a memory.
What’s even more interesting is that the changing of the sound can actually cause the water to be charged with different effects. The seven notes of the scale are said to correspond to the seven chakras; charging the water using one note will have more effect on one chakra while charging it with another note will affect a different chakra. This will require some experimentation with the amount of water to achieve the desired note.
It should be noted, however, that you should not drink the water from metal singing bowls, as the water can leach toxic substances out of the metal. If you want to drink the water from your singing bowl, use glass or crystal to ensure the water will be safe and non-toxic.
You can also use any type of glass or crystal bowl for this purpose—it doesn’t have to have been specifically made to be a singing bowl. Wet your finger and rub the rim, going clockwise, and you’ll notice the vibrations on the water’s surface. The method will still charge the water, even if the vessel doesn’t ‘sing’ with an audible sound.
If you like using singing bowls, try charging some water and experimenting with it to see what kind of results you can garner.
