Benefits of Hand Hammered Tibetan Singing Bowls
Tibetan bowls or sound bowls are a very powerful source of sound therapy. These Tibetan bowls are made of 5 different metals and the benefit is received through sound healing vibrations and frequencies. By holding the bowls in your hand and playing them, one can benefit by the vibrations of the sound that can help the human body at a cellular level. Using sound bowls helps the brain in switching from the usual Beta state to the Theta state which is more beneficial for the human body.
Tibetan Bowls are also used in various practices such as:
- Chakra balancing
- Space cleansing
How can you play the Hand Hammered Tibetan Singing Bowl?
- Hold your Tibetan Bowl on the palm of your out stretched left hand. Try and point your fingers downwards.
- Hold the wooden mallet with the finger tips of your right hand and your fingers pointing downwards.
- Gently tap the mallet on the outer rim of the bowl and then maintain contact while moving the mallet around the bowl. Alternatively you can also start without the tap on the bowl but this is usually achieved after some practice.
- Once you start moving the mallet around the bowl, you should hear a low sound. You can increase or lower the speed and you will notice a change in the sound that the bowl creates. Move the mallet at a speed that seems pleasant to you.
- Always move the mallet in a clockwise direction as this is the direction in which our chakras move and also the correct spiritual direction to move in.
- Practice makes perfect so do not give up if you cant maintain the contact for long or the sound does not appeal to you just yet.
