[ What is Armonica? ]
The Armonica was invented by Benjamin Franklin in 1761. ( "Glass Harmonica” or "Glass Armonica” in classical music). It is made of series of pure quartz crystal bowls combined as one instruments. (Chiho’s Armonica has 30 crystal bowls.)It was extremely popular and in the symphony orchestra in those days. Composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Donizetti had written many music just for the Armonica. Marie Antoinette also played it and a German Physician Dr. Mesmer used it to relax his patients …the English word ‘mesmerise” came from Dr. Mesmer using the Armonica.Armonica activates our pineal gland and draws the brain wave into Theta - the deepest meditation state before falling asleep. We experience altered state of consciousness when pineal gland is activated and that lead the necessary healing happening.The Crystal Armonica is a very rare and powerful instrument, has controversial and extremely interesting history. There were only 80 in the world when Chiho got her Armonica in 2002. Many Armonicas are just sitting in the museums without actual players.
It will be an extremely rare and precious opportunity for you to experience "mesmerising" healing journey in real life..................................................
