THE CRYSTAL BOWLS
compiled by Dee Finney
|The number seven is often used in the Revelation: the seven golden
lamp-stands (Rev 1,12-20), the mystery of the seven stars (Rev 1,16-20), the
seven seals (Rev 7 and 8), the seven letters addressed to the seven churches
(Rev 2 and 3), the seven trumpets (Rev 8,6 and 11,15), the seven thunders
10,3-4), the seven kings (Rev 17,9), the seven heads of the Beast (Rev 13,1),
the seven plagues of the seven bowls (Rev 15,5), etc. "Bush of thorn", during
one of her visions, has understood that the seven lamps and the standard
lamps mentioned in the Revelation, represented the seven principal Churches
or Beliefs systems.
Rev 6: v17 - For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" - When Jesus comes again he will come with wrath for the world, it is 'the great day of their wrath', Psa 110:5, Isa 13:9, Zep 1:14 ff., Rom 2:5. It is a unique day, (Zech 14:7), who can stand on the day of his wrath? Malachi and Joel posed the same question: Mal 3:2 'But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears?' Joel 2:11 'The day of the LORD is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?' So does Nahum 1:16. The answer to 'who can stand' is given in the next section of the 144,000 sealed, (especially 7:9) see also 1 Thes 1:10 in which it is Jesus who rescues us from the coming wrath. God's wrath also occurs in the seventh trumpet, Rev 11:18; on those who worship the beast, 14:10; when the grapes are harvested into the winepress of God's wrath, 14:19; with the seven bowls, 15:1; the destruction of Babylon, 16:19; the rider on the white horse, 19:15.
The seven donations of the spirit of Yahweh: Wisdom, Insight, Counsel, Power, Knowledge, Piety, Fear of God. (Is 11,2-3)
The light of the seven days. (Is 30,26)
Ecclesiasticus, chapter 17 verse 5, enumerates 7 senses in the human being that are, in addition to the five known senses, the intelligence and the word (Si 17,5). This verse does not appear in the Bible of Jerusalem. We find it however in some Greek manuscripts.
In Mt 25,35-36, Jesus enumerates six charitable actions that will be considered in the last Judgment for man salvation: to visit invalids, to quench the thirsty, to feed the hungry, to repurchase the captives or to visit prisoners, to dress those who are naked and to welcome foreigners.
In psalms it is written: "Seven times a day I praise you for your upright judgments" (Ps 119,164) and again "which comes from the earth seven times refined" (Ps 12,7). The psalmist also talks about the seven clamours of God that appear in the celestial phenomena.

|At the inner core of each one of us spin seven wheel-like energy centers
Chakras are centers of activity for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of vital life energies.
Together the seven chakras form a profound formula for wholeness, linking our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual selves into one indivisible whole. As seven vibratory modalities of spiritual existence, they are a means of crossing the archetypal Rainbow Bridge, which is the mythical connection between Heaven and Earth.
These sacred centers offer profound wisdom that speaks to both personal and planetary evolution.
Thought, Universal identity, oriented to self-knowledge This is the crown chakra that relates to consciousness as pure awareness. It is our connection to the greater world beyond, to a timeless, spaceless place of all-knowing. When developed, this chakra brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection, and bliss.
Light, Archetypal identity, oriented to self-reflection This chakra is known as the brow chakra or third eye center. It is related to the act of seeing, both physically and intuitively. As such it opens our psychic faculties and our understanding of archetypal levels. When healthy it allows us to see clearly, in effect, letting us "see the big picture."
Sound, Creative identity, oriented to self-expression This is the chakra located in the throat and is thus related to communication and creativity. Here we experience the world symbolically through vibration, such as the vibration of sound representing language.
Air, Social identity, oriented to self-acceptance This chakra is called the heart chakra and is the middle chakra in a system of seven. It is related to love and is the integrator of opposites in the psyche: mind and body, male and female, persona and shadow, ego and unity. A healthy fourth chakra allows us to love deeply, feel compassion, have a deep sense of peace and centeredness
Fire, Ego identity, oriented to self-definition This chakra is known as the power chakra, located in the solar plexus. It rules our personal power, will, and autonomy, as well as our metabolism. When healthy, this chakra brings us energy, effectiveness, spontaneity, and non-dominating power.
Water, Emotional identity, oriented to self-gratification The second chakra, located in the abdomen, lower back, and sexual organs, is related to the element water, and to emotions and sexuality. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally this chakra brings us fluidity and grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.
Earth, Physical identity, oriented to self-preservation Located at the base of the spine, this chakra forms our foundation. It represents the element earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our bodies and the physical plane. Ideally this chakra brings us health, prosperity, security, and dynamic presence.
The Relationship Between
Crystal Bowls And The Chakra System
The chakra system is an ancient energy system with its roots from the East. It is made up of seven focal points of highly concentrated energy within the central nervous system, and is responsible for integrating information at al levels of consciousness. Each of the chakras is intimately "linked" to different glands, organs and parts of our body and have a profound impact on the quality of our health.
Quartz crystal contains the full spectrum of light (the seven colors of the rainbow) that is related to these seven energy centers (the chakras). Each chakra is nourished and balanced by one of the seven main colors of the rainbow. The healing effect is multiplied with the resonance of the crystal bowls.
Each crystal bowl produces a unique sound vibration that corresponds to a specific chakra of the body. Crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying and transmitting pure tone. This is why pure silicon crystal is used in our most advanced telecommunication systems. Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal bowls transmit energy into the atmosphere. This fills a person's auric field with vibrational radiance, which translates into the seven main colors of the rainbow. These unique sound vibrations emitted by the crystal bowls, "tune" each chakra to its healthiest functioning frequency, thus creating balance, harmony, and clarity within our mind, body and spirit.
This is especially notable, because we live in Waterford
|2-15-03 - The dream starts in my own New Berlin house, but none of the
following scenes resembled that house.
I was out in the yard where my husband grew grapevines that attached themselves to the garage wall. It seemed to be Spring and I was observing what was going to come back and what wasn't. At first glance, it appeared that the grapes on the west end of the wall were gone for good because there were no vines attached to the wall, but the plant on the east end of that same wall looked sturdy and firm and ready to come back. I looked closer at them though and I decided that the vine on the west end still had a chance to grow if it could grow new vines this year.
I turned to go back to the house and saw that weeds were growing strongly between the flagstones and along the stone wall alongside the house. I decided to pull out the weeds as long as I was there. A couple only broke off the tops as I didn't get the whole root - a couple others, I got the whole root too. But I knew just from looking at the soil left between the stones that weed seeds could easily blow in and take root again, I would have to come back and scrape out and clean the stones too to prevent the weeds from growing there.
But first I had to make dinner for the royal couple who lived in this house.
I entered the house and saw that the kitchen was clean, but before I could cook dinner, I had to go upstairs and put on my cook's uniform.
I was already dressed in a white uniform that looked like a nurse, but to cook, I had to put a bright yellow boustierre type cover over the white uniform.
I went upstairs to the bathroom and saw that it was clean and I wouldn't need to do any work here. I only had to put on my boustierre.
I was followed into the bathroom by a chubby black woman who was also dressed in a white nurse-type uniform.
I had a secret desire and that was to steal the royal couple's crystal bowls that I knew they would never use and never miss. They were stored in the basement storage room.
I wanted to tell someone about my plan because it was hard to keep this kind of secret, but I had wanted to share it with a friend who also worked for the royal couple who was also a young, thinner black woman. That particular woman also followed me into the bathroom, and she came in with a man - I don't know if was a butler or her husband - he was also black. But because she didn't come in alone, I didn't want to share my secret with her any long. She made a comment about the Lord and Lady not being home yet.
I made a big production of standing in front of the mirror and putting on my yellow boustierre over my nurses uniform.
So, I invited the chubby black woman to come downstairs to the kitchen with me.
As we were descending the stairs, the woman was complaining about her knees hurting and how much she hated stairs.
I commiserated about her pain and when we arrived in the kitchen which was also brown wood, but perfectly clean, I saw on the clock that it was exactly 4 p.m. and I didn't have to start dinner quite yet. We had time to play a game of cards before starting dinner.
So I decided to share my secret with the black woman and give her the opportunity to steal the other set of crystal bowls that was in the basement. I knew she would hate walking down these stairs so only by enduring more pain in her knees could she share in the secret of the crystal bowls.
So she followed me down the stairs to the basement, not knowing what I was going to show her.
On the basement floor, in front of a large refrigerator, was the parings of a cut carrot top and a cut radish top. I picked these up to dispose of them properly and there was no rubbish bin there to throw them in, but there was a watermelon rind there, so I put the vegetable tops into the watermelon rind and slid it out into the alley like a boat for the garbage men to pick up.
To my right, was another set of stairs that went up into a separate store room and I could see there were two complete sets of matching crystal bowls there that the royal couple would never miss nor ever use. The crystal bowls were not upright, but laying over on their sides, and were set on a matching set of tables that had three shelves with these crystal bowls on each shelf. The table appeared to be metal and painted yellow-gold.
I was going to share these and offer the black woman one of the sets, but to see them close up , she would have to climb yet another set of stairs with her painful knees.
I was just about to tell her about the crystal bowls when a man with a booming voice said, "What you are doing is illegal", and I didn't know if he meant that putting the garbage into the alley was illegal, which it probably was, or if he somehow knew I wanted to steal the royal couple's crystal bowls.
Dream 2: 5-18-03
I was in my apartment on Port Washington Rd. in Milwaukee, WI. I made a phone call and must have dialed wrong because I ended up getting a guy in his car on his cell phone.
At first I couldn't really hear him because the connection wasn't good and I almost hung up, but he kept talking because he was amazed that I had been able to find him. He said that his number was only 12 numbers off from a very important government investigative office and he was in the insurance business.
I wasn't that amazed. A wrong number is a wrong number - but his voice kept getting strong and stronger and all of a sudden he was right in front of my building and he asked me to go with him while he picked his kids up from school.
I had nothing better to do at the moment, so I got into the back seat of his car and we almost immediately had the kids in the car too - a girl about 10 and a boy about 8 - though they could have been 9 and 11 or 10 and 12. The girl climbed into the same seat belt with her Dad, but in the center of the car, and the boy sat on the right. It was a good thing she did this and kept her eyes on the road, because the man was a very inattentive driver. He was always looking on the floor of the car to see if anything fell so he could pick it up right away.
He bent over to get something from the floor of the car more than once and never slowed down even though we were in heavy traffic.
I even got nervous and watched out the front windshield myself to make sure traffic didn't suddenly slow down in front of him and have us read-end them.
I almost told him to slow down a couple time, but he must have trusted his daughter to watch the road because he sure took his time looking for whatever fell on the floor.
Then we stopped at a small, but elegant restaurant to celebrate his son's birthday.
The boy said he had made the 'cake' himself, but what he served us was in 4 fluted glasses of lemonade or melted yellow jello to drink
The birthday cake was a multiple colored bowl of jellos in a 12 fluted bowl on a stand - like a large glass ice-cream dish. There were 6 colors of jello in this bowl - each color individually place in the bow - so there were 7 colors altogether.
I looked at the man while he was standing by the table and though how handsome he was and that it was too bad I was so old - I was old enough to be the children's grandmother.
I didn't know what to talk to him about so I asked him if he knew anything about genealogy and that it was important to do it for the children's sake even if they didn't care now - they would care when they were older.
The kids were anxious to get going because it was almost 4:30 p.m. and they carried their own bowls to the back door of the restaurant to the kitchen and didn't expect someone to come and serve them at the table - in fact - they never even sat down.
So I grabbed my coat and carried my own bowls towards the back door myself as well and woke up.
This diagram is an image of the mystery of the Rose of Creation. The twelve outer circles symbolize the twelve signs of the zodiac. Each circle contains a permutation of YHVH, a tribe of Israel, and a Hebrew letter. The four inner circles represent the four archangels presiding over the four quarters and the four Kerubic signs. The Lamp in the center represents the Sun.
