Ever wondered how crystal singing bowls work?
Though it has been called many things by both ancient spiritual teachings and modern science both agree, all matter and living things are made up of energy vibrations.
Crysal Singing Bowls are everywhere lately. But how do they acutally work to help us?
According to Dr. Mitchell Gaynor (an oncologist who pioneered the use of Himlayan singing bowls and sound therapy to complement the healing process of cancer patients):
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”
Because sound vibrations reverberate through our entire being, they impact us in fundamental energetic, psychological, physiological, and emotional ways. This is why it is important to pay attention to the sounds that we are taking in on a daily basis, as sound inevitably affects our energy, thoughts, mood, and bodies.
To understand how crystal singing bowls work, we must look at the nature of quartz crystal. Crystal singing bowls, in particular, affect us energetically by bringing our bodies and minds into a state of sympathetic resonance with their crystal quartz vibrations. The Journal of Evidenced Based Complimentary & Alternative Medicine found in their 2017 study that, “…Feeling(s) of spiritual well-being significantly increased across all participants.”
Quartz is a powerful conduit for amplifying energy. This means that you can magnify the effects of the intention you meditate on when playing a crystal singing bowl.Furthermore, the mesmerizing, soporific effects of the crystal singing bowl’s pure tone and oscillations ease your mind and body into an alpha or theta brainwave state effortlessly.
This process is called entrainment, and it allows you to experience the benefits of a meditative state, including deep relaxation, lowered blood pressure, release of the body’s natural opiates, and more! If you are looking for deep relaxation, an inner exploratory journey where you can connect with your subconscious mind, or simply an easy way to meditate on an intention or release something you are ready to let go of, playing your crystal singing bowl can have a significant impact on your body, mind, and spirit.
If you are a wellness professional, crystal singing bowls are a powerful way to enhance and deepen the therapeutic aspects of your preferred healing modality. As a practitioner or simply in playing your crystal singing bowl for your personal wellness, the more you play and develop a relationship with your crystal singing bowl, the stronger and more immediate the effects will be for you.
