Singing bowls are most often used for meditation or as healing bowls. They are an ancient meditation device regularly used in meditation, inspirational music, ceremonies and as practical vessels in daily life. The bowls were traditionally hand made and the original tradition of making bowls by hammering or pounding continues, but now bowls are also made by machines. Singing Bowls are made of an alloy of seven different metals connected with seven different astrological planets, such as Gold as Sun, Silver as Moon, Mercury as Murcury, Copper as Venus, Iron as Mars, Tin as Jupiter, Lead as Saturn. Some of the Singing bowls are made out of only five or three different metals. The pure sounds produced when the rim of the bowls is rubbed by the mallet or striker is said to put the brain into a meditative state. The vibration of singing bowls stimulates the body to recreate its own harmonic frequency and help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain in deep relaxation. Singing bwols are said to clear the atmosphere around us of negative energy and emotional conditions.
