Chau Gong 16″ with Stand
Paiste Gong Description & Features: Earth is a sound healing gong with fundamental frequency tuned to the Key of C#2. Among all the Planet Gongs the Earth Gong has the third lowest fundamental tone. (Sun has the lowest fundamental). Produces deep, warm tones with great dynamics and endless subtleties of tone. Gracefully striking different places on the gong creates different healing tones and effects. It’s hand hammered and refined by Paiste’s master gong artisan
The Paiste Synodic Moon gong’s vibration represents the Synodic Month. This is the time between one new moon and the next new moon. It is a time period, it does not mean it is the New Moon Gong, or the the Full Moon. The synodic month (a.k.a. lunar month) is longer than the sidereal. Sidereal = 27.322 days. Synodic month = 29.531 days. (We sometimes get calls from people asking for the New Moon Gong or the Full Moon Gong. These are terms you may hear in various circles, and we have found different circles refer to each gong differently. Paiste does not label either as Full or New.)
This gong of course, falling into the G Sharp range, creates a tone that can excite and raise your energy. Its frequency when calculated and extrapolated into a visual range is an orange: a bright and enthused color. Hence this gong is very good to help you meditate at times, like the Full Moon, when your internal tides are high, but you want to find your center. It is made for meditations during excited times.
As Hans Cousto has mentioned, this gong works very well with healing difficulties and dis-ease with menstruation and related issues. It does work well on various acupuncture points related to this area. But it is not just a gong for women. We also see that it helps cleaning out the second chakra which can hold a lot of emotional and sexual energy that may not be yours, or helps release pain and blocks from that chakra and any other chakras that the second chakra pain is connected. The Synodic Moon Gong can help balance male and female energies, the yin and yang, within your clients.
The Earth Gong sounds deep, like vibrations from the womb of Mother Earth. When we play gently and carefully, the choral overtones turn into a beautiful song. The sound transforms from the ethereal to the material realms, tangible and full. It emerges like lava from inside the volcano.
The element of Earth is associated with the plane of material existence, the condensation of spirit into concrete form.
