Meet Mother Tesla; She is a 32” Chinese un-lathed gong, this is how a gong looks when it comes out of the oven. The Mother Tesla gong, with its un-lathed exterior, maintains a deeper tone, it doesn’t crash like a wind gong or a Chau gong. Mother can nurture you with an overwhelming rush of emotion and healing.
About Gong Sound Healing
Gongs are useful in resolving emotional and physical dissonance. Magic happens when there is no separation between the Gong, the player and the listener. Playing and listening to Gongs is about spiritual, physical and emotional resolution – opening of doors and windows to the Universe, moving around energies, Universal energies – to enter a spiritual dimension. The Gong is a psycho-acoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. It is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and to break up emotional blockages. When skillfully played, Gongs stimulate and resonate all cells in the human body simultaneously and recalibrate the parasympathetic nervous system (tingling or heaviness in extremities, as well as a regulated heart rate during a Gong meditation are a sign of re-calibration). When metal is being “excited”, electrons become highly charged electromagnetically and form a field of Plasmon, (according to the late physicist David Bohm). The plasma field is being created off the Gong and the listener becomes part of the field. Metal is the only material known where the electrons leave their atoms and join other atoms. When the activity of the Gong ends, the electrons go back to their original atoms. Once the Gong comes to rest, the Plasmon and energy fields collapses. When the Gong is revved up again the Plasmon field expands and intensifies. The participants are being electromagnetically charged in a positive, benevolent and holistic fashion. Many recipients walk away with a buzz that in some cases has lasted all week. The Gong generates powerful multi-dimensional ripples of sound that grow into waves and bathe your entire body in streams of sound. These have been described as otherworldly, rhythmic, generating a sense of being on vacation, unfathomable, purifying, magical, sweet – like rich chocolate cake, profound, out of body, celestial and harmonic … just to name a few. There is also the possibility of agitation, shaking, tears and a general sense of discomfort, this is all good and the symptoms of release are different for everyone. Be reassured that it is temporary! Breathe through and allow because the gong is nurturing and always in your best interest. From a sacred geometry viewpoint, the circle; the Gong’s basic shape – represents a beginning that has no end. It is ever-expanding potential and represents our connection with the holographic nature of oneness. Throughout many traditions and cultures, it also stands as a symbol for heaven, totality, perfection, unity, eternity, completeness and for exclusive harmony.
Instructions to Participants
A Gong Meditation will typically be arranged with the participants lying on the floor with their heads toward the gong as spokes to a wheel. Participants bring their and own mat, blankets and pillows to provide comfort as a meditation can last anywhere from 45-60 minutes. Comfort can be key for some people who may be dealing with chronic pain or other health conditions. Always allow time afterwards for grounding, sharing and generally just coming back to oneself before going out into the world. As stated above, responses have been known to last days!
