Chau Gong 10″ with Stand
The Tone of Life Water Gong is the newest gong in the 4-Element Series. Whereas Shemoon (original Water Gong) represents and influences the ebb and flow of our waters, The New Water Gong represents water in all of its manifestations.
The Water Gong is created in six sizes, each with their own unique qualities but all with the quality of the Water element. Connecting us with a deep ancestral knowledge through our feelings and emotions, they are nourishing and life giving.
These gongs have a very deep, steady, natural and raw sound. Like the waters around us, they can take you from a tranquil lagoon to a raging ocean. With a great variety of overtones and a beautiful build-up of low, medium and higher tones, the New Water Gong will enchant and delight you with its beautiful appearance and captivating sound.
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.
