Dear Ones,

ZILDJIAN FINGER CYMBALS TO CLEAR THE ASTRAL AIR

Zildjian Finger Cymbals (the thick ones) are good for clearing the astral air …

They are also good for clearing personal space … like a meditation space or bedroom. They are portable, small and lightweight, and inexpensive. Can be used for travel to clear a motel room, or in nature to attract nice nature spirits.

One way to use them is to strike the thin side of one cymbal against the flat side of another cymbal, either once or a number of times, then wait till a few seconds after you cease to hear the reverberation or ‘flutter’ of the sound in the air, after the sound itself ends.

STORIES BY ALICE: HIGH HOPES OF CRACKING A KOAN AT 16 YEARS OF AGE

That ‘flutter’ sound in the air after the clap of finger cymbals reminds me of a time long ago: I was 16 years of age, and I went to visit some friends of the family … a man and wife living in an upscale sector of Washington, DC.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Baffled, I thought about it night and day. The more confused I got, the more determined I felt. It seemed like an eternity went by. Finally one evening, in a state of utmost mental frustration, I walked out into the night air, and looked up into the night sky. There I found my answer …

What is the sound of one hand clapping?
It is the New Moon in the arms of the Old.

Many years later, when I got my set of Zildjian finger cymbals, I found yet another answer …

What is the sound of one hand clapping?
It is the Sound when there is No Sound, after the last Sound has ended.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
