I have just purchased this new singing bowl. The company says that the majority of their bowls are tuned to note B and according to me that is the crown Chakra. However, I am not 100% sure and need confirmation which I am writing to them about.


There are said to be 7 Chakras in the body, which are energy vortex’s.

Root base of the spine


Note C 256 hz

Sacral just below the navel


Note D 288 hz

Solar plexus stomach area


Note E 320 hz

Heart centre of the chest


Note F 341.3 hz

Throat Blue

Note F 384 Hz

Third eye centre eyebrows Indigo

Note G 426.7 hz

Crown Top of the head


Note B 480 hz

It is said that if illness appears in any part of the body it can be due to blockages of energy in any of these chakras. By playing the tones of each chakra energy blockages can be cleared and energy restored.

This video demonstrates the sound I generate with this singing bowl. Play on a regular basis to rebalance the Crown chakra.


Binaural beats

Tibetan singing bowls were the original binaural beats we now create electronically with two different tones in each ear. Binaural beats synchronise both hemispheres of the mind and help you to reach a deeper state of meditation.

Kindest regards


I have had my Tibetan singing bowl for quite some years.  But this is the first time I have tried to record the sound and upload a video to Youtube. The recording isn’t perfect but it does give you an idea of the distinct sounds it makes.

Scroll to the end of the blog for the free 30-minute recording.

To start with I strike the Tibetan singing bowl three times and then a short pause.   The Tibetan singing bowl is then rubbed by the striker to create a circular sound for a period of time.

I think the sound of the bowl can be altered by adding varying amounts of water.  I am not sure of any other methods of altering the sound.  But if you do know of any, give me a shout.

At some stage, I will record a more professional recording and sell this on my Hypnotherapy website.

My bowl is only about six inches diameter.  But I have seen bowls big enough for people to stand in, which send out much larger waves of sound.

I hope you have enjoyed this.

Positive self talk

I first came across the power of self-talk when I first started suffering from panic attacks back in the 1990’s.   In some areas of my life, I was using positive self-talk without even thing about it.  However, in other areas of my life, my self-talk was poor.

I wasn’t particularly good at sport at school, due to my size.  However, I was half decent at cross-country running.  When I left school I started running regularly.  I set myself a goal of completing the Sheffield full marathon.

I would go out running 6 miles most nights, whatever the weather.  Completing a 13 mile run on  most Sunday morning’s.  After completing a number of half marathons, the Nottingham full Marathon.  I finally completed the Sheffield Marathon in 3 hours 10 minutes.  I beat the first lady in and came 138th.

Panic attacks

After working in London I started to suffer from panic attacks.  My panic attacks only got worse after moving back into a desk based job in Sheffield.  After a course of Hypnotherapy treatment, my panic attacks disappeared.  I suffered from a feeling of loneliness that had caused these panic attacks.

Hypnotherapy treatment

After my Hypnotherapy treatment, I started to work on my self-talk.  I purchased a course by a Daniel A Simmons.  The course was called the “Realization system”.  This was based on Emile Coue’s theory.  Emile Coue was most famous for, “Every day in every way I am getting better and better.”

Shad Helmstetter

I then came across self-talk tapes by a Shad Helmstetter.   Shad had created a number of self-talk tapes to play daily.   These self-talk tapes could be listened to while eating your breakfast, having a shower or shaving.   Daily repeated listening to these tapes was a type of Hypnotherapy, without the trance.  Gradually behaviours and beliefs change as you listen to these self-talk tapes while doing other things.

Shad Helmstetter has moved thing on from his first book.  “What you say when you talk to yourself” and his tapes.  He has recently published a number of new books.  Shad now streams his affirmations recordings for a monthly fee.

Self-talk Mp3 downloads.

I do my own version of self-talk recordings and add questions into the mix.

Trish Hatley

A few years ago I came across Trish Hatley who had created an album of positive self-talk songs.  So far I have only found Trish doing good singing affirmations.

Trish is a swing singer in California.  She was going through problems with her voice and used positive affirmations to help her.  She then had an epiphany and decided to create an album of positive self-talk songs.

My belief is that singing, positive affirmations are more powerful and enjoyable than just talking them.   Singing the positive affirmations certainly, creates more feeling and drives these affirmations deep into the subconscious mind.   Just add the album onto your mobile phone.  You can listen where ever you are in the house or on the move.

I think singing positive affirmations could be an important breakthrough for the future.  The melody along with the positive affirmations is going to be more effective than just singing affirmations.  Have you ever had your favourite song going around in your head, long after you listened to it on the radio?  I remember when we used to have Vinyl records and repeating my favourite songs, they used to stick in my head.  The trouble is the words to many of these songs from my youth weren’t that good.  I am now much more careful what songs I listen to.  Remember “Ghost town” by the Specials.

I wouldn’t normally advertise other people’s work on my blog, but Trish Hatley’s work is so good, I am going to recommend her here.

Sing ask and it is given.

I am certainly going to look at singing affirmations as a more productive way to achieve goals.  I had Trish’s album a couple of years before I started to listen to it daily.

Singing versus talking affirmations

My original question was.  Is it better to sing or talk positive affirmations?  For me, it has to be singing positive affirmations or listening to them in that form.  I love ballroom dancing and the swing music really does it for me.  However, other people may not be so keen on affirmations being sung.  What do you think?

All the best
