Crystal Singing Bowls Canada ships crystal singing bowls throughout Canada, the United States and all over the world.
It is our pleasure to help you manifest and find the bowl you are meant to have.
Don't forget, Source will, in the end, decide which bowl you really need. Any control we think we have is simply an illusion.
Interested in Purchasing a Crystal Singing Bowl?
The process of purchasing a crystal singing bowl will provide you with the opportunity to learn a number of life lessons. You have the choice to learn these lessons or not, but recognize that they are parallel to the lessons you are meant to learn in this lifetime.
Please note that no lesson occurs in isolation, so I am also learning lessons each time I work with a new individual.
On this page I have shared some of the lessons I have learned over the last 30 years of working with individuals to meet their needs. I hope it is useful to you and your process. Please use my extensive experience with the crystal singing bowls to bring you the bowls you need.
Take a look at the questions below and reflect on your answers. Please note that there is no right nor wrong, no judgement about where you are. This is your truth and it is every bit as valid as anyone else's. Truth is fluid and adjusts as new information changes our perception.
I heard someone play a bowl and it caught my interest.
This is probably your first exposure to crystal singing bowls and you have a lot of interesting information to look forward to. Try to be open to the new experience and enjoy the process.
I want to give a gift to someone.
What a beautiful gift. Your bowl can reflect the relationship that exists between you.
I want to add a tool to my repetoire.
As a practitioner, you will find that the crystal singing bowls are unique tools that will tie all your practises into a treatment that is exceptional.
The feeling of being unsafe can manifest in many ways such as a need to control. And yet, control is an illusion that we have created to make ourself feel safe. It can be a neverending circle.
Truth is fluid, the truth we knew as a four-year-old is different than the truth we know now. Truth is based upon our perception,the lens through which we have learned to see our world.
Trust of others reflects trust in self. Just as you use common sense to think through decisions and reach a final decision, do you trust the final decision or do you continue to second guess. As long as you don't trust the final decision you don't have to take action. The paralysis cannot be resolved until you learn to trust yourself. If you don't trust yourself, how can you possibly trust someone else.
Unconditional Love & Acceptance of Self
The degree to which you can unconditionally accept and love yourself is the degree to which you can unconditionally accept and love others.
Coming from an internal feeling of scarcity results in a need to hold on to what is a sure thing .. a reluctance to open up to new. Sacrifice is the giving up of the known in the belief that something better is waiting. This is what the baby bird has to do in order to fly.
Coming from a space of abundance recognizes that whatever happens is in our best interests. We may not like it in the moment but it all works for the best. Trust in the decisions you made prior to entering this physical realm, you have everything you need.
Are you receptive to adjusting your truth and changing the lens through which you see this world and others around you. Your individual truth and the lens through which you see the world will be mirrored in the process of finding your crystal singing bowl.
Actively working on it
A crystal singing bowl is a perfect companion as it will change your frequency and bring to the forefront opportunities to experience the lessons you need to move forward.
Letting it happen at its own pace
A crystal singing bowl can make your journey as focussed as you would like or not. As you allow your intuition to guide you in playing the bowls, you will set in motion your lessons.
Perfection in process
Accepting your perfection and allowing yourself to enjoy your path ... a wonderful place to be.
If price is your primary consideration you may be coming from a place of scarcity. Do you consider your own worth to be limited? Trust in your ability to judge what you need, trust that what you need is available to you.
I your storage place is small then I would suggest that you consider an alchemy bowl which will give you the deeper tone in the smaller size. Few people are happy with the 8" classic as it is too high a pitch.
The note that you want or need may not be readily obvious and sometimes the note you want may not be the note that Source wants for you so it will not be available.
Note that I will work with you to help you. I am honoured to provide you with any information you need to help you decide on your bowl. While I am happy to share the information, I trust you to make the end decision.
Frequently Asked Questions
"Through vibration comes motion, through motion comes colour, through colour comes tone." ... Pythogoras
Crystal singing bowls were originally designed to form crucibles for industrial purposes. Crucibles are multi-use high-tech bowls and have evolved to become the metaphysical, multi-purpose natural energy tool most commonly called crystal singing bowls.
The substance used for the bowls is silica sand and is found in several places in the world. Silica sand is pure quartz in nature. The bowls are made of silicon quartz. The sand is dropped into a centrifugal force spinning mold, and at the proper instant, in the center of that mold, there is an electric arc torch that is ignited to several thousand degrees centigrade. The intense heat integrates the individual particles of sand into an amorphous unified whole, transforming from a crystalline state to an amorphous state - glass in nature. In the formation of the Crystal Singing Bowl, the firing process leaves some inclusions, such as lines and bubbles. This is the individual and unique nature of the bowl. Inclusions are visible in clear bowls, but are masked in frosted bowls because of the milky appearance. They do not affect the performance of the bowl. Crystal Singing Bowls can be programmed. Quartz crystal, as a holographic light template, is able to hold, transmit, and receive thought forms and is fundamental to the memory "mother boards" of all computers. There is no set recipe which will result in a set tone. The tone is created from the combination of many elements. As a result, some tones may be more common in a specific size bowl and more rare in a larger or smaller size bowl. The voice of the bowl is part of the crystal consciousness and it is a response to the frequency needed on the earth.
There are many manufacturers of crystal singing bowls. I made a conscious decision many years ago to limit my suppliers to those who support US manufacturing with increased quality control. They provide a birthing environment which reflects my own commitment to the earth's need for these bowls as a means to increase the harmony on the planet.
Upon arrival, each bowl is played and their voice is identified as it related to the musical scale.
The chakra vortices absorb required vibrations and expel toxins and negative vibrations. Their activity can indicate the level of balance and health.
Certain vibrations or frequencies are required for the alchemical processes. If unavailable through the dietary range the frequencies must be provided by a different source.
While harmonizing, missing or weak frequencies are absorbed as needed. Areas that are disharmonious or less healthy will try to absorb more energy than areas that are healthy.
It seems that physical diseases occur when the system can no longer perpetuate quantum healing and sustain the physical matrix against decomposition because it is not in harmony.
Attuning the Chakras to a higher harmonic frequency attunes their processes.
Chanting or Toning
Dr. Gaynor is director of medical oncology at Cornell University's Center of Complementary and Integrative Medicine. As an oncologist and hematologist, Dr. Mitchell L. Gaynor uses sound and music in his practice to help people reduce stress and find "a place of inner harmony".
In order to overcome the "tidal wave of fear" that can accompany a diagnosis of cancer, he teaches patients how to breathe to counteract the shallow breathing caused by fear and stress and to increase oxygenation. He believes, "Voice is nothing more than audible breath. Your voice is one of the most powerful healing tools that I know of."
Dr. Gaynor says, "When you consider the fact that hearing begins four and a half months before the fetus is born...you realize that using music and harmony and voice as a regular practice, both for wellness and recovery from illness, is one of the most powerful things that people could do."
All chants, Tibetan Buddhist, Sanskit, and Gregorian, share fundamental sounds and basic rhythms that have a positive effect on the body. Enhancing the effects of chanting with the vibration and tones of quartz crystal singing bowls, are especially beneficial for restoring harmony to the body.
It is important that the flow of energy in our energy field be free from interference or corruption. Stagnant, unhealthy and impure energies can block the normal healthy flow of energy. These energy impurities may be cleared out and removed. Cleansing for such energy impurities in the personal and environmental aura should be a regular proactive habit.Using a Crystal Singing Bowl will cleanse these energies and bring them closer to the state of peaceful harmonic health.
For centures cultures have recognised the importance of music and sound as a healing power. In the ancient civilizations of India, the Orient, Africa, Europe and among the Aboriginals and American lndians, the practice of using sound to heal and achieve balance from within has existed for thousands of years. The Tibetans still use bells, chimes, bowls, and chanting as the foundation of their spiritual practice. In Bali, Indonesia, the echoing gamelang, gong, and drum are used in ceremonies to uplift and send messages.
The Australian Aboriginals and Native American shamanists use vocal toning and repetitive sound vibration with instruments created from nature in sacred ceremony to adjust any imbalance of the spirit, emotions or physical being.
The Priests of ancient Egypt knew how to use vowel sounds to resonate their energy centers or chakras.
The link between different parts of the body and specific sounds has been recognized for millenia; it is believed to originate at least as far back as Atlantis where the power of sound was combined with the power of crystal.
In the present time, the Hopi American Indian prophecy is being fulfilled with the "Coming of the Rainbow People", through the keepers of the crystal bowls. Prophet Edgar Cayce, predicted pure tones will be used for healing before the end of this century".Nostradamus foretold the healing of cancer through pure tone by 1998. This ancient wisdom has emerged to heal and uplift the consciousness of the universe through pure crystal tone.
Entrain Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, and Physical Health
The sound from the bowls instills a sense of well-being, peace and relaxation. The bowls give a sense of aliveness, interacting in distinct ways with different people and environments.
Ancient oral tradition describes the use of the bowls in order to synchronize the flow of energy between the physical body and the subtle energetic bodies; massage the internal cells into a harmonic resonance; and travel without moving the physical body.
Don Campbell is the author of nine books, including the 1997 best-seller, The Mozart Effect. In this book, Campbell provides compelling evidence of the influence of particular sounds, tones, and rhythms on mental performance and spiritual outlook, as well as in the treatment of disease. Music can be used to improve memory and learning, boost productivity, soothe jangled nerves, strengthen endurance, unlock creative impulses, sound away pain, and heal the body from a host of ailments.
Every cell in the physical body has a frequency of health. Whether this frequency is changed due to dis-harmony in the etheric bodies, or entrainment with frequencies on the physical plane, the change in frequency manifests in physical illness. Crystal singing bowls entrain the body vibration to a higher, harmonic frequency and harmonic health.
Law of Attraction
By raising the strength of our harmonic frequencies we also raise the vibrations of our feelings and thoughts. If our thoughts are positive vibrations, we attract more (matching) positive vibrations and we manifest physical harmony.
Masaru Emoto has completed many studies which compare the affect of external stimulus on water molecules. Physical and etheric vibrations change the structure of the molecule. He has demonstrated that water exposed to loving words (even a label on the container) and music shows brilliant and complex crystallized patterns under the microscope at near freezing temperatures. If water is put into a singing bowl and the bowl is played, then geometric shapes, like snowflakes, appear in the water. The physical body is composed of a high percentage of water; water is dynamic; words, sounds and thoughts exposed to the water are faithfully registered and transmitted. The high content of water in our physical bodies is restructured with the loving use of crystal singing bowls.
Use the structured, sound-charged, vitalized water consciously. If you don't drink it, use it to water plants, or wash vegetables or a baby. Pour it in your fish tank, or steep your crystals in it under the Full Moon.
The human voice is considered to be one of the most powerful of healing tools. Sacred sounds can be spoken or chanted for healing, prayer, or even for manifestation. When we tone with the bowls, we can feel the vibrations in an even deeper internal space, which exponentially catalyses the transformational power of the bowls.
The Alchemy Series Crystal Singing Bowls are not confined to any particular note or sound. Because of the marriage of quartz, gemstones and minerals, something truly alchemical has been created. The bowls emit vibrations on many harmonic levels that go beyond the audible range of the human ear. These unique elevated frequency bands remain consistent while the bowls are being played. Raising our frequency while opening dimensional gateways, they support us to return to the heart of Creation from which we have come.
Crystal Singing Bowls are a form of vibrational therapy.
Everything in the universe is in a state of vibration. The frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. There are seven musical notes that correspond to the seven colors of the rainbow and these are related to the seven main chakras, which in turn correspond to different areas of the endocrine gland system. The chakras, bones, and organs in the body all possess a different resonant frequency. When an organ or part of the body is vibrating out of tune or nonharmoniously, it is called "dis-ease" or disease.
A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell and each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being. All illness or disease is characterized by some level of blockage, either in nadis, arteries, veins, or nerves. When there is a blockage, the organ in question is vibrating at a frequency that is not in harmony thus it results in some kind of disharmonious state of illness. Sound and light frequencies break up, dissolve and release these blockages. Ultra sound is a vibrational therapy which has been used for almost two decades as a diagnostic tool by pediatricians. More recently, ultrasound is being used to cleanse clogged arteries. Ultrasound is based on the principle that light equals sound, and tone equals radiance manifesting in form.
Crystal Singing Bowls emit a pure holographic template of radiant light that corresponds to the octaves of sound within our physical and etheric bodies. Sound frequencies can be translated into colour frequencies; when the body produces an auric colour field the field reflects the status of the physical and etheric bodies. Kirlian photography is one way of translating the information into a visible state.
Upon arrival, each bowl is played and their voice is identified as it related to the musical scale. Every note has a range of 100 "cents" which works out to 50 cents on the negative side of zero and 50 cents on the positive side of zero.
The musical scale we use is based upon the note of "A" being equal to 440Hz.
This is neither a right nor wrong base, it is simply a common denominator from which we can identify the other notes. All the notes are mathematically related to "A".
When a group of musicians are playing together, they need to use a common denominator so that their notes have a harmonic relationship. Some use a different number for the "A" as a common denominator. For example, prior to WWII, there were a variety of different common denominators. The common denominator of "A" = 440Hz has become more universal since WWII.
The common denominator of "A" = 432Hz is becoming very common now but it is not the only one that is used.
Here is a graphic to help explain how the cents work for each common denominator. As you can see a bowl that is A+40 according to the 440hz common denominator would not be considered and A in the other two samples.
Unless you are a musician who needs to play with others and thus need to have a common denominator of harmonics, a true tone is not necessary. The most important need would be the harmonics between the bowls. The best harmonics occur when the bowls are between -15 cents and +15 cents of each other. This is how I put your bowls together, taking into account their harmonics. I keep track of your harmonics so when you need another bowl I work to make sure they harmonize. For example, if you had a bowl C+45 I would not sell you a C#-50 because they are too close to being the same note.
A crystal singing bowl has one primary note. This note can be lowered by adding water. The more liquid in the bowl, the lower the tone goes. You can check bowl tunings most easily with a digital tuner, which helps you adjust accurately to conditions of elevation, air temperature and humidity. However, as water is added to the bowl the bowl gets harder to play, and produces more static noise.
When two or more bowls are played together, the combination will often create another note.
Nothing I can put into words will describe the joy you feel when you are playing your bowls. It is a very intuitive process and not difficult at all. I work with all my clients to help them increase their comfort level.
Prior to playing, attune to positive energy by setting your intent or saying an affirmation. Thoughts are energy forms and when they interact with a crystal, they are amplified. Combining positive intentions and affirmations with the use of crystals provide a remarkable potential for healing on many levels.
Note: always clockwise
Slowly run the striker around the outside rim (not on the rim), holding firmly but lightly.
Rotate the striker at an even and slow pace; allow the resonance to build until the desired vibration is reached.
If you are having a difficult time getting a sound, gently use the suede or rubber striker to lovingly strike the outside of the bowl three times. This will start the tone and you can continue it by slowly running the striker around the outside rim
If the striker starts to skip, you are going too fast.
Remove the striker and allow the bowl to continue resonating as you tune in.
Absorb the energy and allow it to touch your soul.
There are an amazing variety of other sounds you can get from a quartz crystal singing bowl, especially the larger ones.
Use two paper cups to scoop water up, then pour it slowly to create waterfall sounds
Place small wooden bowls of different sizes upside down on the water surface and play them with wooden sticks
Immerse a sieve in the water, then pull it up quickly to make a beautiful fizzing sound of thousands of drops hitting the water surface.
Usually there is one chakra which stands out more than others as needing balancing but that doesn't mean that the other chakra are balanced. As one becomes more balanced, another will come into focus as needing balancing. There is no set number and there are a number of factors which will influence your decision.
It might be your budget which will determine whether you will purchase one bowl at a time or several or a set. Budget-wise there are advantages to purchasing more than one bowl at a time.
It might be the tone to which you are most drawn which determines that you want a bowl of a certain note. Sometimes the tone to which you are drawn is one which you can play well and other times it is one which you may have difficulty playing. When you have difficulty getting a tone from your bowl it is often because you have such a need for the tone that it is absorbed before it can be heard. Continue to play it on a regular basis to provide yourself with the tone.
It might be the availability which determines your bowl. When you recognize that Source provides what you need and you are able to let go of what you want, there is peace in that acceptance. Remember, any control you think you have is simply an illusion.
Whatever the choice, know that it will be right for you. The process of purchasing a bowl is usually reflective of a life lesson you are meant to learn.
The original classic frosted bowls are available in sizes ranging from 7" - 24". A common misconception is the belief that the note is tied to the size of the bowl. This is not the case. Theoretically, every note is available in every size. In practice, however, it is a different story; certain notes are more common in certain sizes. As explained above, (How are crystal singing bowls created?), there is no recipe which will take into account the consciousness of the crystal which responds to the needs of the birth environment. We can use the same molds, the same amount of quartz crystal and the same methods for 100 bowls and yet they will not all be the same note.
The size of the bowl determines the octave of the note, the larger the bowl, the lower the octave. An 18" C will be a lower octave than a 12" C, but they are both the note of C. Both will balance the chakra attuned to C, so what is the difference? This is very much a personal preference but there is some information which I have gained through experience.
If you plan on using the bowls only for yourself, then use this link to listen to the variety of sizes Hear the Bowls. This will give you a sense of the different octaves of the different sizes.
If you plan on using the bowls for clients or groups, then I suggest that you should use nothing less than a 12" Classic. If you are using an Alchemy bowl then a 7" or 8" will provide the same octave as these bowls are denser.
Remember, the lower the frequency the closer it is to the physical. The opposite is also true, the higher the frequency the closer to the etheric.
Everyone has experienced trauma of some sort.
Trauma is based in the etheric prior to manifesting into the physical.
If you use a bowl less than 12" (Classic) or 7" Alchemy the tone affects the etheric rather than the physical. This can be very "raw" and invasive for someone with a trauma whereas by using a larger bowl, the tone will affect the etheric in a more subtle manner, through the physical. The shock of the smaller bowl can be like fingernails on a chalkboard which is not condusive to wanting to continue.
Use a soft brush to apply a solution of distilled water with about a 10% mild detergent. Rinse with clear water and dry with a blow dryer.
There are two basic kinds of singing bowls - the traditional Tibetan singing bowls which are made of a combination of metals, and pure quartz crystal singing bowls. Both kinds of singing bowls produce an enchanting, peaceful sound therapy as you circle the rim with a mallet. The preference for a crystal or a metal singing bowl is purely personal, but as might be expected on a site named crystalsingingbowls.ca, my path has led me to prefer the crystal singing bowls. However, I will try to be objective as I give you the information based upon my experience.
Crystal Singing Bowls
The vibration of Crystal bowls penetrates our bodies differently than Tibetan bowls because we have very little metal in our bodies. Quartz is a vibrational transmitter. It is used as a transmitter in almost all of our technologies. When you add the vibration of gemstones, metals or minerals, the crystal amplifies the vibrational consciousness of the infusion into our cellular knowing.
Consider how running your finger around the edge of a crystal glass full of water makes it ring and the water itself shift. We have such a high percentage of water in our body and our bones have a crystalline structure that the crystal creates an entrainment between sound and body. We are primed to receive the vibration that crystal bowls create in our bodies.
Because we are primed to receive their sound, they can evoke true transformation. Crystal singing bowls create the opportunity to experience a deeper state of relaxation and consciousness. We connect and awaken our own inner healer. When working through emotions or challenges the alchemy bowls things seem to accelerate the shift.
Tibetan Singing Bowls
The Tibetan singing bowl originated in the pre-Buddhist, shamanic Bon Po culture of the Himalayas.
Some sources state that the tibetan singing bowls are made from the seven sacred metals, corresponding to the sacred seven planets: gold Sun), silver (moon), mercury (Mercury), copper (Venus), iron (Mars), tin (Jupiter), antimony (Saturn), yet others believe that a selection from a total of nine metals was used (the seven plus nickel and zinc) and still others believe that twelve metals were used.
Some believe that it is forbidden, even within the monasteries, to talk about the bowls and that the highest lamas used them in secret rituals to travel to other dimensions and other realms. The secrets of sound yield so much power that they must be kept hidden.
Unless you have an exceptional metal bowl it will not continue to resonate as long as a quartz bowl. The metal bowl plays several notes at one time, the quartz bowl plays only one. The metal bowl has a subtle sound that is appreciated more when the bowl is held to the ear whereas the quartz bowl is loud and can be heard quite well from a distance. Personally, I find that the crystal singing bowls are easier to bring to sound, with a larger longer-lasting resonance. While I have several Tibetan bowls, I tend to use them more for chiming than playing due to the difference in the depth of sound.
Metal bowls can also break.
There are many forms of vibrational therapy and all of them are tools able to entrain the human body into a harmonic state. One of the most beautiful forms of vibrational therapy is the crystal singing bowl because of its versatility and strength. When a singing bowl is sounded, it not only harmonizes the physical matter which surrounds it, but also sends positive harmony to the universe through never-ending sound waves.
Everything in the universe is in a state of vibration.
The frequency at which an object or person most naturally vibrates is called resonance. When each cell and organ resonate in harmony, the body is in a healthy state of being.
Vibrational Therapy is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterised by some blockage in the energy channels. This creates disharmony which can be manifested in the physical form.
Everything in the universe vibrates and therefore makes some kind of sound. If our hearing was sensitive enough to perceive all ranges of frequencies, we would be able to hear the music of the rainbow, the flowers and grass and the symphony our own body. Although we may not hear these sound with our ears, our skin and bones "hear" and feel the sound of the vibrations.
Harmony in Our Life
What does harmony mean? The thesaurus provides us with a number of words which are synonyms; oneness, unity, compatiblity, accord, rapport, order, peace, agreement, repose, serenity, tranquility, security. These are also words we ascribe to our spiritual home, the home where we know Source in the deepest sense. It is the state we long for during our stay on this physical plane.
When we first entered this physical plane it was (and, for many of us, still is) difficult to retain the sense of oneness and serenity. We were overwhelmed with our physical manifestation. The physical manifestation became our primary focus; fear and discord invaded and interfered with our sense of unity with Source. The degree to which we invented a separation from Source is the degree to which we fail to recognize our soul identity and soul purpose, and the degree to which we make decisions out of fear.
If we were to fill a cup, a glass and a bowl with ocean water, none of the container vessels change the contents. The contents remain ocean water, we don't say that they are "part of the ocean". It is no different with Source. Our bodies act as different vessels but we are Source; we are all one.
It is our fears which keep us under the illusion of separation and which manifest discord around us. We have a responsibility to manifest and maintain harmony and unity as we travel this lifetime. If we are manifesting harmony, we are spiritually-, emotionally-, and mentally-healthy physical beings. Every cell in the physical body has a frequency of health. Whether this frequency is changed due to dis-harmony in the etheric bodies, or entrainment with frequencies on the physical plane, the change in frequency manifests in physical illness.
Crystal Singing Bowls act to entrain the complete being into harmony by entraining the body vibration to a higher, harmonic frequency and harmonic health.
Harmony in the Physical Body
Crystal bowls create a very pure sine wave which transmits through any physical objects in its path. The physical human body has a natural affinity to quartz, being composed of many crystallite substances. The bones, blood and DNA are crystalline in structure as well as the liquid crystal-colloidal structure of the brain. Even on a molecular level, our cells contain silica, which balances our electromagnetic energies, and this is the same formula as natural quartz crystal.
Electromagnetic fields exist within all life forms. Crystal is able to maintain the balance of electromagnetic energies between the north and south poles. It is extremely accurate and is consequently used as the foundation of timekeeping systems in all our contemporary watches. Quartz crystal balances our own electromagnetic energy.
When working with Crystals Singing Bowls, there is an integrative process between the external and internal vibrational frequencies; it is an naturally occurring process to create resonance (or harmony) which is the natural state of being. When played, the bowls create tones which resonate with our subtle bodies and frequency signatures, awakening cellular memories and healing on different levels.
Quartz crystal contains the full spectrum of light that is related to the seven energy chakras. Crystal Singing Bowls hold the vibration of white light which ultimately refracts into the rainbow and acts directly on our chakra when played. It brings pure light through sound (as specific colour) into the physical and etheric bodies. Crystal acts as an oscillator, magnifying, and transmitting pure tone (pure silicon crystal is used in all of our most advanced telecommunication systems). Like a powerful radio transmitter, the crystal bowls transmit energy into the atmosphere, filling a person's aura with vibrational radiance which translates into the seven main colors of the rainbow.The healing effect is multiplied as the crystal bowls are played.
Among the wave patterns of different singing bowls there is a measurable wave pattern which is equivalent to the alpha waves produced by the brain. Through the pure crystal tones the sound affects brain wave activity and one can travel into an altered state of consciousness. As different parts of the brain are affected, it is probable that they release different hormones and neuro-chemicals. Crystal quartz has the power to bring about a positive shift in our consciousness. As the shift occurs, awareness grows; we become more attuned to our soul identity and soul purpose and we can reflect this higher radiance in our physical form.
I have found that the bowls are quite tough and have never had a problem while playing or transporting them. Common sense goes a long way in keeping your bowl in good condition and minimizing the risk of breakage. We do not warranty the product against breakage or accept any liability resulting from bowl shatter.
Bowls can break if:
the bowl is played too loudly (creates vibrations which are too intense)
the bowl is dropped (provide support while carrying it)
an object drops into the bowl
banging the bowl hard on the side with the stick (tap lightly)
playing the bowl from the inside (some believe that this creates a feminine energy, but I would suggest that playing the outside of the rim provides a balanced male and female energy)
bowls are too close together (keep a distance of about 12" between bowls)
If there is no apparent reason for a break it is usually due to a significant breakthrough in a chakra trauma or an severe shift in the alignment of energies. Sometimes, as much as we might love a bowl, its purpose has been completed and it is no longer needed.
When this happens, please honor the bowl and its work with you. You can turn the pieces into jewelry or chimes or you could bury it in a sacred spot as you would a cherished pet. Please don't put it in the trash.
