The gongs work on all aspects of our being physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The rich layers of sound which emanate from the well-played gong affect every part of us, including the non-physical subtle energy bodies of the human auric field which are layered around the physical body that we can see in 3D. It is said that dis-ease begins in the subtle energy body, and only migrates to the physical after some time. Therefore if we can remove blockages, imbalances and stagnant energy in the energy body before it manifests in the physical, we can prevent illness and keep ourselves healthy, as well as re-tuning and harmonising every part of our physical being. On the emotional level, the gong sounds have a clearing effect and help to shift old patterns and bring up and clear out old emotional issues and trauma, so that we can move on. Mentally, the gong sounds help to move our focus from the logical left brain into the creative right side of the brain, where we connect with our intuitive power and receive guidance from that central source.
Most people feel extremely relaxed and de-stressed after a gongbath session, whether in a group situation or one-to-one. The gong sounds alter our brainwaves and take us automatically into a meditative state where we can re-connect with the stillness and peace that is at the core of our being. Some people just have a very peaceful experience and feel re-energised and re-charged. Others go more deeply and may have visions or past life experiences. Some people have profound healing experiences. Others sleep through the whole gongbath! Every gongbath is an individual experience depending on where the individual is in their journey through life, and the sounds produced are entirely right for whoever is present at the time.
