Tibetan Singing Bowls

Tibetan singing bowls are a type of bell that stands on its own and looks more like a bowl than an actual bell with a Tibetan Singing Bowlshandle. Tibetan Buddhist monks and those who practice Buddhism use these bowls as a form of silent meditation typically use them. Oral traditions state that the singing bowls date back to Buddha Shakyamuni who was around from 560-480 B.C and was taken to Tibet from India. These bowls are common in worldwide music for meditation, relaxation, and overall well-being. The rims of these bowls vibrate to produce sound with much frequency to resound and produce harmonic tones. The sound produced from the bowl leads to a deep state of relaxation needed to aid in meditation that should essentially lead to being in enlightenment. The bowls are found in Buddhist temples and altars, monasteries, and other meditation halls.

In addition to meditation and relaxation, these bowls are widely used for stress reduction, holistic healing, balancing of the chakras, and for making music. The effect of playing these bells is an immediate centering effect that is affected by the frequency of the tones creating a balance between left and right brain hemispheres. These overtones produced by the bowls represent the “OM” sound, which is a sacred sound associated with meditation practices. The frequency of the “OM” overtones and sounds allows for healing of the body, mind, and souls.

The health benefits of these singing bowls is that they provide a type of energy medicine that promotes healing of different sorts like stress, pain, depression, and other diseases. The healing process begins when the sound enters the brainwaves and thus synchronizes with the resonance coming from the bowls leading to a perfect state of meditation. You not only are listening to the sounds coming from the bowl, but you are becoming in tune and one with the vibrations, frequency, and resonance be released from the bowl. This connection to the sounds allows for a connection with mind and body, there is a direct acknowledgement and impact on the nervous system with the entire body. A healing expert states that the sounds don’t only help in physical healing, but can also help at the emotional and spiritual level.

Chakras can also be balanced using the Tibetan singing bowls. Chakras are energy vortices that originated from ancient Indian system of healing. It is typically known that there are seven main chakras but there are many more throughout the body. In addition, chakras connect the spiritual aspect of our existence with the physical aspect. When a chakra is blocked or unbalanced, there is physical dysfunction within the body through endocrine glands. When chakra balancing is done, endocrine glands and all associated structures and organs are also balanced and begin to function properly. Simply using the Tibetan Singing Bowls allows the chakras to auto correct themselves from the sound waves that are emitted. The seven chakras that are targeted and should be at balance are the: root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. Repeated listening to tones form the singing bowls allows your body to eliminate toxicity and retrain your chakras, endocrine glands, and entire body to remain in a state of balance overtime.
