Find your perfect "bowl-mates" every time! Here's how to find your way through the maze of choices, step-by-step.
Purchasing crystal singing bowls can be a significant investment, so how do you know which ones are right for you? There are over 250 types of Alchemy™ crystal singing bowls available from Crystal Tones®, as well as crystal didgeridoos, tuning forks and pyramids. There are literally thousands of bowls to choose from, because each Alchemy™ crystal bowl is unique. They are hand-made individually, like pottery, so each has a unique "personality," a different note, height and diameter, and is made with different gems and minerals. When it comes to finding the right bowl, it can be overwhelming! Here’s how I help people find their perfect match. I hope these tips help you find your way through the maze of choices. If not, feel free to contact me for a personal consultation.
INTUITION AND MUTUAL ATTRACTION
The best way to choose a bowl is by playing it, live and in-person. If possible, go to a showroom where you can play them, such as The Sound Sanctuary. Look around. Are you drawn to a certain bowl or set? Play those first. What effect are you feeling in your body, mind and spirit? Watch for a sound that stirs deep emotions and touches your heart. It often seems to me as if the bowls choose their owners. I look for this attraction, and for the effect of the bowl’s vibration on the person. Sometimes they are so touched that tears well up.Most people think, “It can’t be that easy.” Still, after trying many other bowls, when they return to the bowl that called to them, they say it’s like “coming home” to a “soul mate.” After seeing this happen over and over, I believe there is a mutual attraction that happens. It feels like an adoption agency here at the Sound Sanctuary! I help people connect with their crystal bowl helpers. So, the first tip I have, is “Trust your intuition.” Then, use your head. Here's how:
HUMMING—Try humming or toning while playing a bowl. This magnifies the impact of the bowl sound. Look for a note that is comfortable for your voice, one that you can sustain without strain— a tone that feels good in your body.
HEALTH—Do you have health issues that you want help with? E.g. pain management, cancer care, anxiety, depression? Consider the energy signatures and healing properties of various gemstones, minerals and precious metals. Also consider the effects of various notes and tones. There are certain notes that assist the endocrine system, for example (consider a 5-bowl endocrine set). Certain combinations of notes create musical modes (moods). Intervals of a 5th are particularly calming and relaxing.
CHAKRAS—Do you want to enhance or balance the energy of certain chakras? Look for notes, gems and bowl sizes that correspond with each chakra. Consider a 7-bowl chakra set.
BINAURAL BEATS—Do you want bowls that create a Binaural Beat, for balancing right and left hemispheres of the brain? Binaural Beats take your bowl playing to a higher dimension. Choose any two half notes and play them together to get this effect.
VALUE— Consider “What is the value of these bowls in my life? How will my life improve? What is it worth to me to transform, heal and experience true joy?"

"I want to thank you again for the lovely experience picking out my very first (and probably not last) crystal bowl set. As soon as I got home I was playing them, and played them with my western red cedar drone flute. Oh my goodness they couldn't be more perfectly matched! It was divine guidance for sure.
