And while so much of retail these days exists online, finding a crystal singing bowl supplier in your area can be extremely difficult in NZ. For this reason, there are some challenges that need to be addressed before you can comfortably buy your first ever crystal singing bowl or chakra set of bowls. So here are 3 tips we've put together to help you safely purchase your first set of bowls.
Tip 1 - Find a supplier that will allow for you to see, hear and or/ play the bowls before buying. And as we said, while this can be extremely difficult depending upon where you live and access to a crystal singing bowl supplier in New Zealand, this is still our first tip for anyone wanting to buy a bowl. Why? Buying a crystal bowl or chakra set is a very person al experience. While there are so many schools of though on the best types of crystal singing bowls and their particular uses, nothing supercedes your own individual connection with a bowl. How it looks, how it feels, how it sounds to you all matters - afterall, you're the one that is going to be playing it and so you first and foremost want a bowl that is going to inspire you to play it. That inspiration comes from a variety of different factors for each person and so it's important that it's acknowledged - what you feel inspired and connected to is a great starting point for selecting your bowl. But what if you can't find a crystal singing bowl supplier near you?
Tip 2 - Ask the supplier if they can call you or Zoom with you so that you can see and hear the bowls being played. Here at the Oracle Shop, we have sound healers that can demonstrate the bowls for you so that you can hear for yourself the exact bowls that you're looking to purchase.

Tip 3 - Ask yourself - "what do I want my crystal singing bowl mainly for?" It's amazing how many different reasons and inspirations are behind people buying crystal singing bowls in New Zealand. Some are wanting it for their own personal sound healing use, some are using them for their yoga or meditation classes with students, some are wanting to dive in to starting their own sound baths or sound healing practice and others are more just wanting it for a decorative purpose that also has an intriguing functionality to it. As simple as it sounds, asking this question can allow for you to not only more quickly determine whether you're looking for a crystal singing bowls chakra set or a small or a large individual crystal singing bowl but can also save you money in the long run by purchasing the exact bowl or bowls that are suited to your needs and wants.
