I love playing my crystal singing bowls. They are not only beautiful to look at and listen to but do you know what actually happens when a singing bowl is played?
Crystal singing bowls have been used with yoga, sound healing, crystal cleansing, space clearing and to signify the beginning and end of meditation.
Running the mallet around the bowl with slight pressure will create the sound. When this happens, the bowl is said to sing. The bowls create a range of sounds (based on size) to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.
Studies have shown that sound has a direct and positive impact on the mental processes, muscles, nervous system, heartbeat, pulse, digestive system and circulatory system.
Alignment with the tones of the Crystal Bowls is one of the most dynamic forms of sound healing found today.
Here are some benefits to using crystal signing bowls:
Can reduce stress and anxiety
Stimulates the immune system
Can assist in lowering blood pressure and anger by creating a peaceful state of being
Assists with chakra cleansing and balancing by the frequencies and vibrations of the bowls unblocking certain areas of the body
Increases mental and emotional clarity
When using crystal singing bowls specifically with crystals, (as we do during crystal grid ceremonies that I hold in conjuction with www.natsukashiihealing.com) they can help cleanse and clear negative energy from them. The sound waves can also assist to enhance and activate the natural properties of the crystals.
The notes of the crystal singing bowls correspond with each of the major chakras. Chakras can be described as energy centers of the body. Each energy center has unique aspects and corresponds with specific tones of the musical scale. Keeping these centers in balance can result in better health and harmony.
