What is a Sound Journey?
Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Journeys are a unique inner journey guided by a variety of sounds, all with assorted frequencies and vibrations. The beautiful and celestial sounds of crystal singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and gongs are naturally received and resonate with different parts of the body. The tones from these instruments can lead you into a state of total relaxation in which healing and connection to a higher consciousness can take place.
The sound journey, sound meditation or sound bath begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and an eye mask. After a few minutes of guided focus on the breath, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds, tones, and frequencies being introduced in succession.
In an age where we regularly close off our hearts for survival, we
oftentimes need to be gently coaxed to expose our bellies and hearts to one
another in peace. In each sound journey, Victoria sets her intention to bring
in healing qualities of tranquility, compassion, and ease for the individual
and the collective, and to invoke greater peace and healing for our planet.
“The singing bowls act as a
medium in which our inner chaos and conflict
can be reconfigured into a harmonious sense of calm centeredness that
resonates through every cell of our body and mind.”

Life is stressful, creating physical and emotional unease, anxiety, and
dis-ease. The first impressions of the effect of a sound journey are a relaxed
mind and blissful feelings. As we relax into the sound of crystal singing
bowls, the positive effect goes deeper. The brain comes into the Theta state, a readily available form of meditation. As our brain and body receives the
vibrations, our mind automatically switches off, along with the repetitive
The human body is a vibrational energy field. Every cell in our body
vibrates at certain frequencies of sound. When our body is sick or damaged,
it’s like our body is “out of tune.” A crystal singing bowl sound
journey is a complimentary healing modality and brings the sound vibrations into our body and restores us at the cellular level, regenerating our aura to promote healing.
Crystal Singing Bowls:
The crystal singing bowls I play are made by Crystal Tones® and are of the
highest quality (99.992% pure!) quartz crystal, making them incredibly
resonant. The tones produced by crystal bowls are not just heard by the ear,
you feel them in your body, with certain tones affecting your energy centers
(chakras) for healing, balancing & meditation.
