The Transformative Effects of Tibetan Singing Bowls
Posted on September 24 2019
The very first time I ever heard the tune of a Tibetan Sound Bowl, I was visiting a crystal shop in Florida. Everywhere I looked I saw crystals, singing bowls, zen decor and tools used for meditation. I asked the store clerk how to use one, and I’ll never forget hearing it for the first time. We sat down in the meditation room and as she began to spin the mallet around the bowl, I heard the most beautiful sound that seemed to block out everything else in the room. As the bowl got louder and louder I felt my thoughts slow down and my whole body begin to relax.
Tibetan Singing Bowls continued to follow me through my life for the next few months. Something I had never heard of before, I suddenly noticed everywhere!
At a yoga class the instructor used a singing bowl, a week later when I went to a Buddhist Temple the monks were using huge sound bowls for their meditations! I took all these synchronicities as a sign and decided to purchase one for myself. Now I find myself using a singing bowl for my meditations, cleansing, or whenever I need to take time for myself.
The tone of the singing bowl has a vibration. Our thoughts, emotions, and mental state also have a vibration. The sound of the bowls can be used as mediums to change our consciousness and increase our emotional clarity. Because of this, Tibetan Sound Bowls are great to use in times of high stress or high emotions. Vibrational Healing is not a new age concept. Everyone can relate to the experience of how music has the ability to alter our moods and change the vibe of any room. Similarly, the Tibetan Singing Bowls have the ability to do the same thing.
Historically the bowls were used by Tibetan Monks (and still are to this day) for meditation and chanting. In Western applications, the bowls are often used for yoga, meditation, chakra healing, sound therapy, cleansing, and relaxation.
Every bowl is different and depending on the size of the bowl creates a different note or tone. Many spiritualists have multiple bowls for different purposes. Personally, I use mine whenever I’ve had a stressful day and just want to block out the mundane aspects of reality, and tune into myself and the healing vibrations of the universe.
