How to Choose A Singing Bowl
Choosing the Size of Your Singing Bowl
Singing bowls come in many sizes and are constructed with different types of materials. The sound they create vary according to their shape, size and in the case of crystal bowls, their clarity of sound. All bowls can be programmed with intention, so it isn’t necessary to have an entire shelf of bowls. With practice any bowl can be used for the same effects as any other bowl, but here are some general guidelines:
1. Six-inch bowls
These bowls generally operate within the Crown Chakra and Third Eye. They also help open a little known gate at the base of the brain where ancient Egyptians placed the intelligence of the heart. If you get energy headaches it could be that this gate is closed or stuck. Six-inch bowls help pull us up from the Lower Chakras where we generally function each day and reconnect us with the higher spiritual energies.
