The ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Navajo Indians and Vedic texts mention Gongs being used as a healing instrument.
The gong works on changing our frequency. Everything in the Universe pulsates or vibrates at its own frequency. For example, emotions such as love and fear have specific frequencies. In 1665 a scientist discovered Entrainment. If you put a group of pendulum clocks all on the same wall, all moving at different times, in a few hours all their movements will become synchronised. Entrainment happens when variant frequencies in the same vicinity all change to reflect the highest frequency in the vicinity. This is what the Gong does, it changes the frequencies or vibrations in our body and mind to match its own high frequency. The Gong contains all the sounds in the Universe, it’s frequency is the sound of creation itself.
In life when we deny our challenges, get stuck in anger or fear or decide to ignore the problem, we create blocks or dissonance. These blocks tend to create stagnation and finally dis-ease in the body and mind. The Gong’s use of overtone frequencies break down these blocks and then the gong brings the body back to balance, stability and resonance during the soft notes.
