However, majority of the bowl these days are used for yoga, Reiki, Feng shui, sound massage, sound therapy, meditation and for centering chakra. Tibetan singing bowls have unmistakable effect on people. Ancient civilizations throughout the eastern hemisphere use an evolution of singing bowl for healing or as a way to enter into other world or realities. Sound produced by the vibration of the singing bowl helps center different chakras of our body. When we think about it, entire universe runs or communicates on different frequencies of vibration. We may not perceive some sound, as it may be below or above the threshold of our hearing but the sound is everywhere. Scientific studies have shown that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems which could explain the healing properties of using Tibetan singing bowl. It is also used to achieve optimum state of tranquility in our brain during mediation or Yoga.
Chakras are energy centers located along the center of the body. The word "chakra" means "wheel", and people who can see them often report seeing vortices or spinning wheels of light. The chakras act as transformers of this light / life force / prana / chi, releasing this subtle energy into the aura or etheric body, and then to the physical body. The chakras are related to the endocrine system, the ductless glands of the body. Chakras also affect and influence the part of the body where they are located. Unbalanced chakras can lead to physical imbalances. Many vibrationer or energy workers believe that it is the disharmonious, unbalanced or insufficient flow of subtle energy through the chakras which is the ultimate cause of disease.
