No fanfare, no celebration and no long speeches, but we`ve just passed a milestone on our chosen path. We have been using the former Stoke Library for 3 months now and feel so blessed every day we go in. We have also just held our 100th Gong Bath since opening the doors!
The analytical side of my brain has been juggling figures and that works out at just over one Sound Immersion a day on average. My heart is saying `thank you` to the Universe for the opportunity to bring good vibrations to new people and `thank you` to all those who have attended and give us the opportunity to continue.
We love what we do and every day is a joy in this respect. Of course, we can`t avoid being touched by the resonances we help create for others. Although we set the overall intention that every time is for the benefit of those people coming in trust (or curiosity) and we become the servants of the gongs for an hour, we can`t help but be touched by those waves of sound that pass through us.
It is so amazing that each time is unique and each time we develop a deeper connection with the instruments. Each time we pass a little further into the other side, the other world to which they are a portal. Each time they sing a little more joyfully and speak words we are beginning to understand. As we deepen our connection then we open more to be able to give more to the people who come to us.
So, every day we ask `how much better can it get?`
