Sacred Healing Instruments
"Lord, make me an instrument of your Peace."
- St. Francis of Assissi
The collection of sacred healing instruments I have collected over a span of over twenty years.
I can't remember how they all came to me but I cherish them all like a big family.
I think one of the first instruments in my care was a Tibetan Singing Bowl. I still have it and it's one of my favourites with a rich smooth tone. I call it my Mother Earth bowl. Over the years I have collected many more Tibetan Bowls and currently have 33 Tibetan Singing Bowls. I even worked in a shop, Himalayan Dreams, which sold these bowls and enabled me to grow my collection. I will always be grateful.
The Harmonic Whirles created by Sarah Hopkins was another of the first instruments I owned. I have the whole chakra series which is 14 pipes and I love to swing them around across mountain tops, and they are such a fun instrument to share with groups and so easy to play.
I think the Medicine Drum, Rattles and Rainsticks were next in my collection and I was lucky enough to make my own Medicine Drum with the guidance of a Lakota tradition with Pejuta and Shamani. My Medicine Drum has the power of healing old wounds and is a constant companion by my side.
The Crystal Bowls came into my life with the first one gifted to me as a surprise. I'll never forget when I first met a clear quartz crystal singing bowl, and coming home to tell my boyfriend. Well he went straight out and bought it for me and left it as a surprise on my kitchen table! I've been lucky enough to keep adding to the crystal bowl collection with the latest Chakra Series, taking my Crystal Bowls to14. The Crystal Lyre was also gifted to me and allowed me to barter off the payment. In reflection a lot of these instruments have been gifted to me. What a blessing. I always felt Great Spirit has been gifting me these instruments because I share their beauty, their frequencies with loving intention for healing and upliftment of humanity.
The Gongs were introduced to me by a travelling Sound Healer who introduced me and taught me about the Gongs and I miraculously manifested my first Paiste Moon Gong. Love to share that story, so many stories...perhaps I will start a blog....My mother gifting me the Sound Creation Earth Gong, and I'm also caring for an Atlantis Gong, Nepalese Gong and Chinese Wind Gong.
The latest instrument gifted to me was a small bamboo flute that has inspired me to journey into the heart of the Native American style flute, and it continues to reward me everyday.
Along the way I have gathered many other sound healing instruments including the Mayan 13 Tones of Creation Energy Chimes, Wah Wah Pipe, Ocean Drum, Thundercup, Oriental Chimes, and more.....
