the sound of the bell brought my attention to a "centering" place within my head. It then moved to my heart chakra. As I was listening to the sound, my thoughts disapated. Repeating the memory of the bell also did the same things as listening to the bell the first time. Often times the voice of the guide was interrupting and I had to wait till I could then focus back on the sound of the bells. I have done this kind of meditation before and find it very relaxing.
