Now everything people used to do earlier always had a reason. The making of bell does not include only one metal; it includes various metals like cadmium, lead, copper, zinc nickel, chromium and manganese. The real proportion at which each one of them is mixed makes our mind’s healing process easier. The 7 chakras are healed since the sounds make an echo on our brain.
