The planet Jupiter marks a transition in our solar system from solid surfaces and defined cores to gaseous and atmospheric domains where matter is still in the process of becoming. When we sound the Jupiter gong we stimulate growth at our most outer limits, where we have yet to define goals and set boundaries. It vibrates us into an awareness of ourselves as participants in the greater body of life, engendering feelings of abundance and a sparked recognition of the unlimited resources that surround us. The Jupiter gong may be used to stimulate consciousness, bringing awareness to universal issues of philosophical, spiritual and mythical importance. It helps to cleanse stagnant liver energy, aiding in the release of suppressed anger and supplicating addictive attachments to the material world. As a ceremonial gong it unites groups of individuals to be of “one mind” in order to achieve goals for the common good.

"Every cell in our body is a sound resonator. Every cell lives in a dynamic rhythmic pattern. Each organ has its own cycle and its own pulse. Each and every system has a cycle, rhythm, pattern, and pulse that exist in resonant harmony and sympathy to the cycles of the earth and the heavens. These body systems respond to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states of consciousness. "
