A singing-bowl for a the next frequency level
The Bowl for the New Time of Emergence
During December 2012 I had a strong sense that as we move through this portal in time where multiple cosmic cycles were ending – making way for the emergence of a new cycle with a new frequency, that we need to create instruments that carry and sound frequencies and energies for a new time and can assist us to tune ourselves to the vibrational platform of the next era.
I saw that I needed to make a singing bowl to sing us into another level of vibration:
As I described in a previous account of the bowl making journey – my experience of forging with fire, metal and all the elements, what I see, feel, sense and experience is mostly a reflection of the process I am working with as it is mirrored in the making process.
‘When I put the plate for the new bowl into the fire the clock strikes 12 on the 6th Dec 2012. It calls me to pay attention: While the brass plate is in the fire I align from the heart centre. My glowing heart flame connects with the heart of the Earth and the heart of the galaxy. I sense the heart as the still-point and centre for transformation. I see the centre of the vortex around which all planets, the whole solar system and galaxy are realigning and shifting into a new frequency. I ask this new frequency to be imbued into the metal as the fire brings it to glowing gentle pink.
In my first round of hammering – spiralling out from the centre – I feel a strong core being established, but then my experience of having the frequency of the core spiral out and flow through all the places right out into the furthest reaches of the periphery feels like really hard work. The metal is jumping, bucking like an unruly stallion, warping and twisting. It seems the metal hardens so fast I need to summon all my strength and power to do the hammering.
So I take it back to the fire to ask for help and assistance; I sense the dragons, those mythical beings of great power that work with the causal planes of existence. They are present immediately – ready to assist and co-create. I am especially aware of a great black dragon, who I know assists with deep transformation. I feel the power in my belly and lower chakras.
The fire is raging – I feel the dragon’s breath – consuming old structures that cannot be a part of the next level of creation – transforming, digesting and realigning the energies, out of which a platform for the next level of creation gets established. We are ready to co-create together.
I see that from this place of alignment, power, passion and ruthless love that knows the abyss new creations can come forth:
This time as I start the hammering – (having cooled and cleaned the now shallow plate) – I feel many beings – including the dragons – present to co-create this new vibrational platform for creation. From the centre out we move step by step. I can feel the shift rippling out to the very periphery of the universe as I hammer out to the periphery of the bowl. Moving around the periphery I feel myself gathering the strands from the edges of the universe and then as I spiral back in I feel many beings/ energies/ intelligences who are all a part of this ‘gear shift’ in the universe, the galaxy and the solar system moving with me – bringing strands to weave into the bowl as a frequency. As all are coming closer in towards the centre as I spiral in there is a huge intensification and amplification of the energy! I sense I need to take it back to the fire.
(The plate has now become a bowl – the hammering with all this assistance was so much less effort than in the first round!)
As I take it back to the fire for a third time, the fire has a very different quality. This time it is soft and gentle and of a different frequency. It feels like it is the frequency of having passed through the eye of the needle, through the vortex and through the still point. As the soft glow spreads from the centre of the bowl outwards I feel grace spreading gently. I sense the frequency of earth being reborn and all of us being witnesses, midwives, and space holders for this miracle.
Now when I hammer I feel the vibration of the heart of Gaia spreading, spiralling out into the periphery – with grace. And as I spiral back in I sense all life/ all intelligence that is in resonance with this heart vibration respond – weaving and co-creating new dreams of life and limitless possibilities into Gaia’s energy field. These are in relationship and contact with other life in the galaxy – complementing to create in beauty, love and with heart intelligence. I feel so much joy as I hammer (or it hammers me?)
I take it back to the fire one more time to release any limitations my own perception might have placed in the bowl and I invite the limitlessness… The fire lets the bowl glow in all rainbow colours.
To complete the bowl I now need to hammer and smooth it from the outside over a metal mushroom. As I hammer – again I sense many presences taking part, much assistance wanting to come in for everyone who is willing to come along in this step of shifting gear. Much help and assistance is woven into the vibrational body of the bowl – I sense the possibility for humans to be assisted to step into the unknown – to realign the separate ego self to the greater Wholeness in trust and the knowing that all co-creators of the universe are here to work and create with us in joy beauty, love and grace.
