I have been asked this on more than one occasion and so here it is. It’s called a Tibetan Singing Bowl.
Tibetan Singing Bowls – The ancient brain entrainment methodology for healing and meditation. Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.
There are so many benefits of Tibetan Singing Bowls:
- Reduce stress and anxiety significantly.
- Lower anger and blood pressure.
- Improve circulation and increases blood flow.
- Deep relaxation and pain relief.
- Chakra balancing.
- Increase mental and emotional clarity.
- Promote stillness, happiness and well being.
While there are many types of singing bowls on the market. I have two types of singing bowls. One is mass produced and the other is an antique that is over 100 years old that was made in Tibet. Each singing bowl has a different frequency, so if you are looking for a bowl. Know what pitch the bowl plays in. It is congruent with the chakra that the bowl resonates with.
I purchased my antique from http://www.templesounds.net
For the new style singing bowl I got that from ebay (LOL).
Alot of people purchase them because it sounds so pretty. But, I have and use them daily in my meditation before I do my morning prayers/mantras. I am Buddhist, so it is very common to have a singing bowl to use prior to meditation. It will help ground and balance you to focus on your practice.
