The feng shui use of singing bowls is very similar to the use of bells (singing bowls are considered a type of bell). The openness of the bowl brings an additional quality of energy to its use as a feng shui cure and in many cases, the feng shui use of singing bowls is more powerful than the use of bells.
Singing bowls were traditionally used in Asia for at least 3,000 years, if not much longer. Also called Tibetan singing bowls, or Himalayan singing bowls, you can find them today in many good quality new age bookstores and musical shops.
Some singing bowls come adorned with many ornaments, such as the Om sign, the Buddha image or other spiritual symbols; and some singing bowls have a plain, simple look. Many singing bowls are sold with silk cushions to support the bowl; as well as with the mallet (the wooden part that strikes the bowl).
The most important aspect of the singing bowl is its sound (of course). The higher the quality of the bowl, the higher and more pure the resonance it produces. Ideally you would choose your singing bowl by listening to several different bowls in order to find the sound you like the most, but you can also find good quality singing bowls on-line.
How do you use the singing bowl as a feng shui cure?
There are 3 basic ways the singing bowls are used for good feng shui:
You can use singing bowls to clear your home of low or stuck energy, as well as to continuously keep the energy of your home fresh and clear. Use them in your regular feng shui space clearing sessions, as well as at any time throughout the day.

- You can also use a singing bowl as a feng shui cure for the bagua area that benefits from the Metal element of the bowl (West, Northwest or North).

- The singing bowls are a powerful cure for the challenging feng shui annual stars, as the pure sound produced by the singing bowl disperses the negative energy of the bad feng shui stars in your home. Use them in the location of the bad stars of the Earth element (# 2 an # 5), as Metal weakens the Earth in the cycle of 5 feng shui elements.

Once you find the best way of using your singing bowl - by gently striking the bowl then rubbing the mallet in a circular motion against the rim of the bowl - you will enjoy the most beautiful pure resonance in your space and in your body.
The song of the singing bowl will heal not only the energy in your home, but also your own personal energy. Calm yourself, relax and let it do its healing.
After all, it has been doing just that for thousands of years.
