he Gong is God – Reboot Your Nervous System and Body with Our Chiron Planet Gong.
Yogi Bhajan stated that ‘The Gong is God’ and for those who have been bathed by gong sound waves, it is a profound first experience.
You have no resistance against this sound. It is the master sound, the Adi naad. Everything you think becomes zero — the gong prevails.
Sound (the Naad) is the primeval (Adi) sound source of all existence. We are created from sound. Soundwaves penetrate the human body on a cellular level and reset the frequencies of our nervous system. Sound is a magical healing tool; it can bypass your mind as a therapy, and direct itself to the precise area of the body that needs healing.
Sound is energy waves, and the gong energy waves create the life healing force you need. There can’t be a much simpler way of healing and rejuvenating yourself than lying in Savasana and allowing the gong’s dulcet tones wash over you after your yoga postures. When you let go to the gong, you restore your harmony.
The sound will carry you beyond your fears. The pressure (of the vibration of the gong) will release the nervous system of many illnesses… To regenerate the parasympathetic nervous system, nothing is more powerful than the sound of the gong.
At YogaSpace Yorkshire we have a Paiste 32-inch Chiron Planetary gong -which is a Shamanic healing gong.
Chiron Planet, first discovered in 1977, orbits between Saturn and Uranus and is only approximately 180 Km in diameter. It has been classified as both a comet and a minor planet and has also been included in astrological charts. Its eclectic orbit and sometimes maverick behaviour aptly reflect its eccentric healing abilities.
The Chiron gong works on the throat chakra (5th) where we speak our words of truth, and the Third Eye (6th) where we act with our intuitive wisdom. The gong works through our deepest turmoil to find meaning and a way through every block. The Chiron gong says that the wounds you need healing from, contain a gift and that the healing journey is how you discover your gift. By embracing your darkness, you walk into the light.
The Chiron gong also heals animals. When we play our Chiron gong, our Dachshund Sascha, does not run away from the soundwaves; he lies beside his owner during Savasana and soaks up the natural healing frequencies. His small body stretches and gives out small sighs of pleasure.
THE GONG SPIRIT SONG
Yogi Bhajan, Master Kundalini Yoga
The Gong is the spirit song.
It is the primal whisper of the soul.
Its sounds are the echo of the Original Word that created the world, the sound within all sounds.
Listen with outer and inner ears.
Feel its pulsations and let the millions of vibrations dance and flow through your senses.
You will become fearless, relaxed and awakened.
The ancients sought this experience on the tops of mountains and at the sacred places.
The voice of God would thunder in, spectacular strokes of lightning.
The clap of thunder – Bang! Shatter! Roll! Echo! – stopped all thought, stripped away pretence,
shook loose the deepest fears, and rejuvenated the nervous system.
It created strength, peace and healing.
The Gong is that sound. It is the flash of inner light.
The mallet is the will of the infinite, the gong, the creation, and the sound are the spirit song,
the heartbeat of the soul.
