Why Choose Empyrean Bowls?: Empyrean bowls are polished on the outside to be completely smooth. This creates various benefits for meditation. First, the bowls have a more precise and coherent note, that pulses less then frosted bowls. This means that your attention does not need to travel with the pulse of the note, but stays steadier. Second, when singing the bowl, you do not feel with your hand the roughness of frosted surface, so you pay less attention to the physical act of playing the bowl. Third, you do not hear the roughness of the frosted surface from the striker touching the bowl. This means that you can focus more on just the pure sound of the bowl. Last, we are finding that empyrean bowls have slightly longer sustains than frosted bowls. Empyrean bowls represent a true enhancement of the positive quality of the frosted bowls.
What Is The Difference Between A 7, 8 and 9 Bowl Set:
A 7 bowl set plays the traditional major scale singing from low to high “Do – Re – Mi – Fa – So – La – Ti”. The crystal bowl industry sells this sequence of notes in the C major scale: 14” C, 13” D, 12” E, 11” F, 10” G, 9” A, 8” B. In the industry, this is known as the standard chakra set as many in the United States and Europe pair each musical note in the scale with one of the 7 major chakras: C – Root Chakra / D – Sacral / E – Solar Plexus / F – Heart / G – Throat / A – Third Eye / B – Crown. You can see our 7 bowl set here.
A 8 bowl set adds an additional 8” C to the set, known as the High C, that sings above the 8” B note. Adding this High C brings a completion to the musical scale, finishing off the octave. Instead of your set just singing “Do – Re – Mi – Fa – So – La – Ti”, it will sing “Do – Re – Mi – Fa – So – La – Ti – Do.”This final High C “Do” note gives a sense of completion to the scale, where before ending the scale on “Ti” can leave a sense of harmonic wanting. Try singing both scales, and you will experience the completion adding the 8th note create. The eighth note as well opens up more harmonic and melodic opportunity as it is highly harmonic with many other bowls in the set. During chakra meditations, the 8th bowl allows you to work with the soulstar, or 8th chakra, located above the crown of the head.
A 9 bowl Heaven and Earth set adds an additional 14” F to the set, known as a Low F, that sings below the 14” C note. This is also known as a 3rd octave F. Adding a low F note allows you to work with the Earth Star chakra, located below the root chakra. Being able to work with the Earth and Soul Star chakra together creates a very special connection between the upper and lower ‘poles’ of our energy field, not unlike the North and South poles of the Earth’s magnetic field. These are traditional connecting points for celestial and earth energies which help us become an awakened vessel, or channel, of clear and coherent energy. The low F as well creates a foundation bass tone, which musically adds even more depth to the set. It fills the room with a low note, which the other bowls can play melodically above. It enriches the harmonies available in the set, producing a perfect fifth harmony below the 14” C. And, by identifying it with the Earth Star beneath us, we can learn traditional methods of connecting to the Earth for grounding, release, nourishment, renewal, and alliance with the medicine, elemental, and ancestral energies associated with the Earth Realms. It also serves to anchor us in this embodiment, to allow for greater ‘self-realization,’ which not only incorporates an understanding of Who we are (our ‘essence,’ relating to the Soul Star,) but also our ‘purpose,’ of “Why are we here?” These two questions, Who are we?, and Why are we here?, are foundation questions to spiritual paths of self-realization around the world, and integral to our awakening as fully embodied spiritual beings.

Why Does High Quality Tuning Matter? Our Quality Guarantee: Tuning is crucial to the integrity of the harmonies and melodies you will want to produce in your set. Societies worldwide have studied the harmonic relationships between notes for thousands of years, which is represented in the sequence of notes you will receive. The better tuned your set is, the clearer and more uplifted the harmonies you will produce, which will all create a happier environment to relax into and do spiritual therapeutic work. These bowls are guaranteed to be made of premium grade crystal ‘sand’, the highest quality materials in the crystal bowl industry, which gives the best luster and voice quality to the bowls. They are guaranteed to be within +/-5 cent pitch variation of perfect pitch, in your choice of 432 Hz or 440 Hz tuning. For empyrean sets, we pick the hz values to be as close as possible with current inventory, usually getting to be within 3 cents of each other. This standard of tuning is well above the crystal bowl industry standard of +/-10 cent variation in tuning for perfect pitch bowls. Often, we are finding sets sold online that are far beyond a +/- 10 cent variation that gives the set a dissonant quality. We only provide crystal bowl sets that are in perfect incremental tuning, so that the notes follow the scale accurately from lowest to highest note, as they would on a piano keyboard. We have an over 4 decade background in music, musical instrument making, and sound and shamanic healing practices of various world cultures, and care deeply about the quality of product, and voice of the product we provide you, for the best benefit for you, and your clients.
What Is 440hz and 432hz Tuning? Which Should I Get?: There is a good deal of information online about the differences between 440hz and 432hz tuning, and which is better. Here we will just discuss the literal meaning of tuning musical instruments as it is a key understanding for the purchase. If you can imagine a piano, there is a key in the middle called “middle A” or “4th octave A”. On almost all musical instruments in the world this middle A key is tuned to resonate at 440hz. All the other notes higher and lower on a piano are then tuned in relationship to middle A equaling 440hz. This is the meaning of 440hz tuning and is the international standard for tuning musical instruments all over the world. Guitars, flutes, pianos, violins, harps, etc. all over the world are tuned assuming the middle A note equals 440hz. If you are going to purchase your crystal bowl set planning on playing with other musical instruments, such as a harmonium for example, you will most likely want to buy 440hz tuning so that your bowls play in harmony with your musical instruments. 432hz tuning is simply if you flatten the middle A key of a piano or other musical instrument by 8 hz to equal 432hz instead of 440hz. Then all the other notes higher and lower are tuned in relationship to middle A equaling 432hz. With 432hz tuning you get a slightly lower pitch with each note in the set. You can listen to the sounds of 440hz and 432hz tuned bowls at the bottom of the page to help you decide which set is right for you.
How Do I Use A Set Of Singing Bowls For Therapeutic Healing?: When we move in the direction of bright and clear coherent awareness it is only natural that we encounter and let go of the trauma, suffering and beliefs that we are holding onto and that are cyclically affecting our lives. Just playing a single crystal bowl and listening to the sound helps shift, align and focus our awareness, moving us into space where spiritual healing can occur. In this way crystal bowls can quicken the process of spiritual healing. It is quite common to become entranced with crystal bowls because of their effectiveness, and many people report having life changing experiences from listening to these instruments. Using more than one crystal bowl can create harmony between notes. Harmony creates an uplifted environment of vibration, and just listening to harmony helps people relax and focus deeper into a meditation, as well as become uplifted into states of joy and well-being. Using more than one bowl can as well create melody. During a meditation, changing notes and creating melody can help people move their awareness more freely, and refocus their awareness away from the attachments of the mind. Using one bowl is highly effective, though many people appreciate and have an easier time continuously paying attention to multiple tones playing sequentially or a melody. Many people use the crystal bowls to align, awaken, heal, or balance the chakras. The chakras are energy centers in our subtle energy body, known by many names to spiritual cultures around the world. They are seen by spiritual cultures as 'eyes of perception' and 'doorways' into other states of being. Developing knowledge and experience of the chakras can enhance one’s practice, and spiritual awakening. While it is a modern concept to use musical notes with the chakras, using a 'chakra set' of bowls can be very effective to use for alignment with and greater awakening, balance, or restoration of the natural conduit, or movement of energy, through the chakras. In these ways, whether through harmony, melody, or used alongside knowledge of the chakras, having more than one crystal bowl can bring about a more enjoyable and attentive experience that can help quicken the process of spiritual healing.
