Quartz crystal singing bowls have only been used therapeutically and musically in the last 3 decades. They were initially produced for the computer industry. A crystal singing bowl is made with pure quartz crystal but you can also get bowls made with other crystals such as rose quartz, ruby, amethyst, and moldavite. Precious metals such as gold and platinum are also used to make crystal singing bowls. Bowls are generally available from 6 inches up to 24 inches. Crystal singing bowls are available in every note.
Music and sound affect us physically, emotionally and spiritually. According to Dr Alfred Tomatis, the sound is to the nervous system what food is to the physical body. Crystal singing bowls produce the most wondrous sounds, which also have great therapeutic and healing potential. Sound is another form of vibrational healing or energy healing. When we are in a state of dis-ease, we are literally out of tune. Through resonance and entrainment, we can put ourselves back into tune and out of a state of dis-ease. We are in the infancy of understanding how sound affects us and how it can be used to heal our dis-ease even though India’s scholars and religious leaders understood 4,000 years ago that we live in a state of vibration from which sound derives and on which sound has profound influences. (Joachim-Earnst Berendt, 1987) Under the ayurvedic system, chakras not only have a corresponding color, but they also have a musical note. Crystal singing bowls can be used to clear and balance chakras.
To learn more about crystal singing bowls you can attend a meditation class or the introductory workshop. For more details see the workshop and meditations pages of this website which is coming soon.
