First of all, hold the cushion with the bowl sitting on it firmly. Take the wooden mallet on the other hand and strike the bowl gently. The vibration of the sound will linger and diffuse in the open space. This melodious sound will last for about a minute or two. You can repeat the action three times. You will feel the sound getting purer as you strike more often and gain confidence.
There is another method to purify the energy… strike the bowl with the wooden mallet as described above, with the wooden mallet, press and move the mallet in circle on the external edge of the bowl, a continuous humming sound is produced. Some would recommend walking with the bowl clockwise round the room three times.
The metal sound produced can absorb the sickness energy in a home; remove stagnant energy, dissolve energy left behind by the previous residents, or negative energy from the vicinity. If you experienced a serious of accidents, burglary, or having tension and anger, sounding the bowl will bring good and vibrant energy into your home.
This Singing bowl from a monastery is made of seven different metals, namely silver, gold, tin, copper, zinc, iron and lead; comes complete with a cushion and a wooden mallet. The diameter is approximately 9cm (3½ inches), the height about 5cm (2 inches).
If or when you feel that the energies in your home is somewhat stagnant even after de-cluttering your home, you can use this singing bowl to purify your home.
You can buy it from any reputed Chinese Feng Shui shop or order it here (check out my front page). You don't need to buy a fancy bowl with design, just make sure that it sits on a cushion to preserve the unique, pure, and melodiously soothing sound of the singing bowl.
Do not let it fall onto a hard surface as this will destroy its purifying power. It can also be used to overcome temporary bad feng shui, or you can use it daily to dissolve any negative energy. It is the sound of the singing bowl that brings the good new vibrant energy to your home.
Please bear in mind that it is extremely powerful for purifying and balancing the energies of the space around us.
In my next blog, I will show you how to use it effectively.
