How are the Crystal bowls made?
The Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to roughly 4000 degrees in a centrifugal mold. They either remain in this pure state, or precious metals, gemstones, rare metals, rare earths or rare crystals are heated and added to the quartz bowls. The addition of these other elements, add to the properties of the quartz crystal and enhance the properties of the bowls.
How does sound affect our bodies?
Everything that moves, vibrates. If something is vibrating, it is creating some form of sound – whether or not we can hear it. Science has been able to show that sound can affect our bodies on a cellular level, and that even our bodies (from cellular level up to organ, gland, bone and muscle) absorb and emit sound. Even our brain waves vibrate and produce sound – all of which naturally attunes us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth.
Why use Quartz Crystal?
Quartz crystals have many physical properties, including piezoelectric properties (the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials). The quartz crystals develop an electric potential upon the application of mechanical stress. For example, this is why they have been used in things such as timepieces, radios and television equipment. They amplify, transform, store, focus, and transfer energy.
Since our bodies are also crystalline in structure, they are affected by not only sound but also by crystals.
What is sound healing?
When all areas of our bodies are healthy, everything is vibrating in harmony throughout. If an area of the body is not functioning properly, it is vibrating out of harmony from the rest of the body, which can cause dis-ease. When sound is used on the body, this enables the body to re-harmonize to its regular frequency with the rest of the body. This enables the body to restore balance and properly combat any dis-ease within the body. There are many methods of healing with sound; alchemy crystal bowls, the human voice and tuning forks are just a few of the ways to effect change.
How to use crystal bowls
You should “clear” the bowl, using whatever your preferred methods are for clearing other crystals (exposure to moon light, sun light, smudging, etc.).
Say an invocation at the beginning of a session – this helps create sacred space and affirms your intention for the session (you don’t have to say it out loud).
They are beneficial not only for helping to heal the body and soul, but also for meditating and for relaxing.
To further increase the power of the bowls, use them in combination with voice or other instruments.
What are chakras?
At the inner core of our bodies, spin seven wheel-like energy centers called chakras. They are measurable patterns of electromagnetic activity that are centers for the reception, assimilation and transmission of life energies. Meridians connect these chakras to the rest of our body, which means that the state of each chakra affects a corresponding area of the body.
All seven major chakras are interrelated. A block in one chakra can affect those above and below it, and therefore different areas of the body.
Light and sound both affect the chakras, especially when used in conjunction. Each chakra is associated with a specific tone of the musical scale and specific colour. Red, which vibrates the slowest, corresponds to the root chakra. The colors follow a rainbow progression, with violet as the highest vibration, corresponding with the crown chakra.
