The Healing Power of the Crystal Bowls CD
By: Laura Min Jackson, Brown Belt Nia Teacher, Orange County, CA | May 26, 2009
I haven't yet shared the Crystal Bowl CD in a class or workshop, but it has helped with my own self-healing and wanted to mention my experience.
I was on a medication that's known for causing 8-12 hours of painful side effects. I was very fearful, and that's the day the CD arrived.
I played it and mentally didn't "like" the music. But I thought it might help me, so as I restarted the CD (long version), I felt immediately drawn to the floor. I followed the written meditation and could feel the music deep in my body.
I did the long version twice through, the 2nd time allowing pure organic movement without following the text. Much of it was embryonic as in the Nia 5 Stages.
Throughout the process, my pain ranged from fleeting and tolerable, to nonexistent. My doc insisted I have painkillers on standby, and I'd been warned to expect a sleepless night, but after Crystal Bowls, I had almost no pain at all.
When my doc saw me the next day, she was astounded. And I was happy, and further down the road back to health than I'd been in a long time.
Through Movement We Find Health. In my experience with Nia, it is true again and again.
