How to Activate a Tuning Fork
To activate a tuning fork, grasp the tuning fork firmly at its end and strike the it against the heel of your hand or a rubber object, such as a tuning fork activator. Hit the edge of the tuning fork only allowing one of the two prongs of the fork to have contact with the activator, that is, at a 90° angle to the surface.
Weighted Tuning Fork:
If striking the fork prong on your hand, strike it on the top weighted portion of the fork, striking only one of the prongs of the fork. It is to be used on the body, so the vibration penetrates deep into the body.
If striking the fork prong on rubber or the activator, strike it a couple of inches below the weighted portion of the fork, striking only one prong of the fork. This will avoid both weighted parts from "clanging" together.
Unweighted Tuning Fork:
Strike the fork prong about one-third of the way from the top. It is used in the auric field.
