What are Crystal Singing Bowls?
Crystal singing bowls are
that, when played, resonate a pure,
clear, therapeutic sacred sound.
I believe Quartz Bowls are a true
voice of Earth.
In my experience, the naturally
occuring sounds they create
have an undeniably positive
impact on mind, body and spirit.
What are Crystal Singing Bowls made of?
Crystal singing bowls are made
from pure quartz crystal that
has been fired at extreme
temperatures until it forms a
quartz glass. Some bowls are
“fusion bowls” which
means they are made from quartz
and another mineral or metal
which fuse together during
the firing process.
What is Quartz?
Quartz in crystal form consists
of molecules of silicon dioxide
arranged in a highly
structured geometric pattern.
Quartz crystal is piezoelectric,
which means it develops an
(or a sustainable resonance)
when mechanical stress is applied to it.
Quartz’s ability to resonate
and sustain a precise frequency
has made it a common transmitter
and receiverin crystal oscillators
found in watches, radios,
phonographs and computers
around the globe.
How are the bowls played?
The bowls are played by gently
striking them and then carrying
their resonance the by using a
suede or rubber "wand".
What do they sound like?
Their tone and frequency can be
highly hypnotic, therapeutic and soothing
while simultaneously penetrating, intense
and emotional. The sounds they
emit are not only audibly heard,
but also felt in the physical body.
What is “healing”?
"Healing" is defined as
“the process of becoming whole”.
Healing is a highly personal experience,
unique and individual for any person that
asks and allows the healing process
to enter into and manifest in their life.
How does "Sound Healing"
with Crystal Singing Bowls work?
I believe the true nature and power
of sacred sound therapies
can not be fully understood or explained.
I believe they are experienced and each
person tends to have their own experience
when having sound directed to them and/or
played for them with a positive and loving intention.
I shy away from the term "sound healing"
as I firmly believe within each of
us lies our power to "heal" ourselves.
But I will add that there are many tools
that help us each on our journies, should we
be seeking some self-recovery (or healing).
As a daily practitioner of sacred sound
with Quartz Bowls,
I can only speak from my experience
and my daily practice.
I will add that the more I practice,
the more I learn, and the more I learn
the more I grow.
I play a set of quartz bowls which
are organically (or naturally) tuned
to the pentatonic scale.
The premise is that the notes
of the scale:
correlate with specific regions
and functions of our physical body
and also our chakra system.
When an the bowls sound, sustain
and maintain a certain note,
that sound resonates with the correlating
area(s) in our physical body or energy field.
The sound stimulates an array of
positive therapeutic responses
based on the law of resonance.
In my simplest attempt to explain
the power of sacred
I believe therapeutic sounds
assist us to absorb, process, utilize,
replenish and maintain our
vital life-force energy.
I believe sacred sound allows us
to release and clear energies which may
or hinder us from our natural state of
divine neutrality and calm.
Here is a link to a very short video about the
power of therapeutic sound as utilized
of cancer patients.
