What is a crystal bowl sound bath?
Crystal singing bowls are wonderful sound healing instruments that can heal and transform body and mind. The ancient civilizations of India, Africa, Europe and the East have used sound and music as powerful healers for thousands of years. The vibration of these quartz crystal bowls moves through your body and creates a relaxed meditative feeling. I gave a heart chakra bowl to a friend and he gets better results (sound) when he uses the hammer on the inside of the bowl.
Crystal singing bowls are clear or frosted and are made in various sizes ranging from 5 to 24 inches.
Do singing bowls help with meditation?
The tool you use to strike or play your singing bowl also has a big influence on the sound that your singing bowl produces. The sound of the notes and the effect of using the singing bowl can help you find a more relaxed and focused meditative state. The sounds of a singing bowl offer relief from the daily stirring of the mind, as do meditation and yoga. The “around-the-rim” technique produces a sustained and angelic tone, while the “percussion technique” produces a sound that is more like the ringing of a bell.
After sound therapy, the emotions are calm and the mind is clearer, and the sound vibrations affect the body after the singing bowls have been played on them.
