How to make the bowl sing?
The quality of the sound from singing bowl very much depend on your skills besides having the correct material and dimension of the bowl. Hearing perfect sound is not immediate and not an immediate destiny. It is a journey you will learn as you use the bowl more to purify your space. In the beginning, the sound may come flat, but as you learn along and interact more with the bowl, the sound gets purer and stronger. Patience is required and impulsiveness will only ruin the sound of the bowl. Therefore you must be very calm and undisturbed when you play with the bowl.
- First, hold the bowl sitting on the cushion with one palm and the wood mallet with another hand. Stay calm.
- Then strike the bowl three times on the perimeter. Strike it hard, but be careful not too hard till the bowl falls off the cushion. You will learn how to control it as you get more familiar with it.
- As the bowl starts to vibrate after the striking, create the continuous sound by rubbing the mallet against the edge of the perimeter of the bowl CLOCKWISE. You need a lot of practice to make this work perfectly. Use pressure, but not too hard. You may try doing this at different angles and time will tell you what is the best angle for each individual. Please refer to the picture below.
This two photos are for illustrative purpose only (they are taken from another bowl and do not represent the actual bowl you will be receiving): Strike the bowl by the side (left picture). Rub the edge perimeter of the bowl clockwise in circular mode to continue the sound again and again till you finish a space (right).
Space clearing procedure
Space clearing is best done in the morning hours between 7 am – 1pm. In fact the strongest hour is at 12 noon when the day transition from morning to afternoon. Please take a bath and wear some clean clothes before conducting the space clearing. Carry with you the mystic knot or wear the Dzi bead for protection when you want to conduct the space clearing. Firstly, open up all the windows and doors of all the areas you want to do space clearing with. This is in order to let external air, sunlight and energy enter and flow through your entire space. Remember to also turn on all the lights and fans to generate “yang” energy. Then light up a sandalwood incense ingot on the incense dish and bring this dish around the spaces you want to clear. Let the aroma and smoke of the sandalwood pierce through every corner of the spaces you desire to clear. The smoke from genuine sandalwood has negativity removal properties.
Then start playing with the bowl from the front part of the house, or where the maindoor is. As you enter your maindoor, strike the bowl three times, followed by the circular rubbing of the bowl edge perimeter. As you play with the bowl, move three rounds in circular mode around that space. After three rounds, leave the bowl to finish singing alone. Then you move to the next room in a clockwise direction around the house and as you enter the door strike the bowl three times again and make it sing as you move within the room three rounds. Continue this process for the entire house till you move back to the original space where your maindoor is. Finish off by striking three times and making the last three rounds again at the vicinity of the room where your maindoor is. We recommend once a week for space clearing, but you may perform space clearing as frequent as you want base on your own preference.
Taboo: Please do not do space clearing if there is thunderstorm, heavy rain and lightning. For places that has snow, you do not do space clearing when it is snowing also. But if you could do it immediately after rain and snow when the surrounding air is very clean and clear, that would be excellent!
