The planet Neptune rules over the watery subliminal parts of our consciousness. Its vibration rests in the world of dreams, visions and a spiritual longing for oneness with the whole. The Neptune gong creates a sound bath that addresses a weak will, manifested by a desire to go with the flow and dissolve into anonymity rather than do the tremendous work of individuating amidst a sea of information and influences. It informs our spiritual life, while showing us how to retain clarity and keep from losing ourselves in the multiplicity of stories that define spirituality and religion. On a physical level, Neptune works with the parts of our body that are most liquid, relieving blockages in our many systems of fluid transport. Its vibration deeply affects our spinal cord and nervous system, restoring a state of equilibrium in the watery encasements of the nerves and brain, and relieving conditions caused by imbalances of pressure and volume. In a therapeutic environment, it provides a placating effect to addictive longings, providing a healthy context in which to experience bliss. It allows us to dissolve our frequently painful selves into a healing sea of energy from which we can reassemble with greater clarity and spiritual purpose.

"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. "
