Singin Bowls

I finally received my Crystal Singing Bowl set! Much gratitude to Transcend Wellness for helping me to obtain these beautiful wonders! Watch the video below to see me unbox them! And even put one on my head! lol.

“Okay Shelby, I see your bowls. But what are they?”

Well, let’s dive into some history first, and then bring it back to the present!

Tibetan Singing Bowls, or the metal singing bowls you typically see, are used in Buddhist practices and traditions, coming to Tibet from India. [1] The bowls are played during meditation, prayer, and other gatherings [1,2].

Some Tibetan Singing Bowls are used for collecting offering in addition to being played. [1] The vibrations and sound are said to pass along teachings but also transform those who hear it into a higher spiritual state, such as ascending into a more Buddha-like state or nature. [1]

On the other hand, Crystal Singing Bowls didn’t arrive on the scene until about the mid 1970s. [5]

The contemporary theory behind singing bowls, why and how they work, is that everything is made up of vibrations – you, me, computers, plants, animals, the Earth, etc. On the very, very tiniest level of atoms, vibrate. They move. So the theory goes, that the vibrations of the singing bowls affect the vibrations of the things around them, one of those being us. [3]

Some of the common benefits include relaxation, reports of better sleep, reducing fatigue, improving mental states, feelings of peacefulness and bliss, and more. [3, 4] More scientific studies need to be done on this matter, but there are many personal experiences of people out there and their experiences with singing bowls that can be drawn upon. [4]
