Playing Tips and Caring for your Crystal Bowl
To play your bowl....we recommend setting your intention by saying a short affirmation before you play your bowls to help attune yourself to the positive energy produced by playing them. Gently strike the outside rim of the bowl three times, using the suede striker.
Then slowly run the striker around the ouside rime, holding firmly as the resonance begins to build and until th e desire vibration is reached. you may play in any direction, although it is said that you can play the bowl counterclockwise to release built-up negative energy.
Removing the striker will allow the bowl to contiue resonating as you tune in and enjoy the energy.
Proper care and cleaning can help keep your bowls beautiful!
