For those people who are new to meditation pure sound crystal bowls might seem strange. That is until these individuals learn that these bowls help the body become relaxed through sound. It is also important to note that these bowls have been around for over 3,000 years and it’s believed that their origin is in Tibet. The bowls back then were made of many different materials, which included mercury, cooper, tin, silver and gold. Healing bowls made of this type of material is hard to find and if found would be an antique and cost a fortune. The modern bowls of today are made from quartz crystal, which is believed to bring its own unique sound to the healing properties.
To learn to use the best crystal singing bowls is easy. Each bowl will have a singing stick and that stick is moved around the top edge of the singing bowl, which creates a soothing sound. Sound healing isn’t a new concept and for many it is an effective way to return harmony to the body. When the body is in harmony it is less prone to stress and anxiety that can make the body vulnerable to disease. It isn’t the sound that creates the healing rather the body becomes relaxed by the sound ultimately creating a better environment for the body to heal itself. Singing bowls can be use individually or in a group such as a yoga class where one person is elected to use the bowl while the class unwinds and goes deeper into a relaxed state.
