Higher-frequency sound waves toning in close proximity to you are powerful catalysts to raising your personal frequency (often referred to as “raising your vibration”). I have a number of my favorite CDs and mp3s that offer the hauntingly melodious tones of bells, gongs, chimes, or even crystal bowls. What I’ve personally found is that the more pure the object that is vibrating, the more pure will be the tone emitted from it; meaning that the crystal bowls are often the most high-pitched and delicately piercing of all the sounds listed. Metals are lovely, serene and soothing, but crystal tones are just on a higher vibratory level completely. There is almost a celestial quality to a crystal bowl’s resonance that metals just can’t match.
I have Steve Halpern’s “Crystal Bowl Healing CD” and a number of other pure crystal-toned audios. Even Tom Kenyan offers the crystal bowl resonance to accompany his particular vocal toning. It is nearly trance inducing to simply sit back and listen to it.
The guy below—Ben Carroll, offers his unique take on the crystal bowl accompaniment to his own vocal toning, and he’s worth checking out if you develop a liking to these sorts of tonal meditations. He also has offered his personal philosophy in this particular post that I do agree with, so I’ll list it here as well.

“Raise Your Vibration is something that we hear a lot, but that is a pretty broad statement. What is your vibration? How do we come to the conclusion that some vibrations are higher than others? In sound or light that is easy to tell, we can measure the wavelength. Can we measure the wavelength of our level consciousness? I think we all intuitively know that love is a higher vibration then hate, and that kindness and compassion in action serves us to raise our vibration. That seems to be universally accepted whether we choose to live that way or not.
I believe that we all intuitively know if an action will serve to raise or lower our vibration, but at the same time we all function from within a sort of accumulated comfort zone. We all carry around remnants of traumas from the past. We all carry around beliefs about ourselves that have been programmed into us. We all carry around beliefs instilled into us by our society’s standards. A lot of this can be running on the subconscious level affecting us in unseen ways and affecting our decisions.
These small pieces are NOT who we truly are. Our true selves, our higher selves, are always there as well behind the wall of thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and programming. Pure Consciousness. Deep awareness. Infinite connection. That is who we are.
How do we tear down that wall to be able to experience ourselves in our truest form? There have been many teachings on this from many different peoples and traditions. I find that sound is a great ally in this. Sound helps us to slip down past our busy minds, perhaps even down past our deepest programmed beliefs, so that we can access a pure level of consciousness. When we find ways to set down all of that other stuff, even temporarily, we can access our infinite awareness and our deeply connected intuition. Even short periods of connection at this level can bring great change within. Remembering.
