Sound Healing is an effective and proven ancient practise that uses vibrational sound to reduce stress, create a deep sense of inner peace & well being whilst promoting optimum health. Sound is a type of energy healing that alters our consciousness assisting in our Transformation. The normal brain wave state we are in is Beta, with Sound healing the brain moves into the deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies. These are the frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states and increase our intuition. If a person is out of balance (physically, mentally or emotionally), sound healing has been shown to reduce tension, boost the immune system, increase endorphin levels and regulate stress-related hormones, to name but a few health benefits.
Similar to Dr Emoto`s work that demonstrates positive spoken words producing beautiful snowflake patterns in water, John Reid from the Global Institute of sound produced a similar study of beautiful mandala-like patterns in water created through various frequencies of sound. With the human body being made up of over 80% water we can see how the positive effects of sound will be beneficial to our overall health & well being.
The History of Sound
Dating back to ancient Greece, Egypt, the vedic scriptures of India & other civilisations, Native American Indigineous Tribes such as the Navajo people still use these practices today. Virtually every culture has used sound for healing and transformation Shamans have used the voice, drums, rattles and didgeridoos travelling to spirit worlds for healing. The Egyptians and Mayans are believed to have designed the pyramids through sound and the ancient Greeks had sound healing temples. Thankfully Sound Healing and it`s powerful effects has in recent times reemerged in the west. Research studies have proved that Music and certain sound frequencies bring the mind, body and soul into harmony along with the Yogis belief that OM is the universal sound of everything that connects us to the Divine and all that is.
The ancient view of most cultures is that sound and music is the creator energy of the universe, that music was the metaphor for creativity and life. Our brains pulse electrically as we are influenced by external rhythms which affects us at a cellular level for our overall health and well being. Chanting and Sound aids meditation and raises the frequency of our healing. Pythagoras discovered that harmonics and certain mathematical combinations are the fundamental elements of all creation.
The Solfreggio Frequencies
Solfeggio frequencies that make up the ancient 6 tone scale were used in Ancient Gregorian Chants of St. John the Baptist.These powerful frequencies given to the church & used in sacred music to keep the body, mind & spirit in balance & harmony were lost many centuries ago. Thankfully they were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo a physician & leading herbalist in the 1970`s and in the book the `Healing Codes for the Biological Apocolypse` by Dr Leonard Horowitz.
The six Solfeggio frequencies are:
396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair) the genetic blueprint of life
In the words of the Genius inventor and electro magnetic engineer Nikola Tesla , “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe”. The core vibrations of the Solfeggio frequencies are 3, 6 and 9!
Certain sounds and frequencies activate our DNA, astrophysict Carl Sagan states 97% is unused and studies have shown biochemists using the frequency 528Hz from the ancient scale of the Solfreggio frequencies repairs human DNA. Dr. Candice Pert, PhD, states energy and vibration go all the way to the molecular level and that we have 70 different receptors on the molecules. When vibration and frequency reaches that far they begin to vibrate at the cellular level exposing the DNA to the frequencies. Sound Healing using vocal toning, drumming, chanting, or tuning forks is a way to direct direct energy, sound & frequencies for balance and transformation.
Various forms of sound healing can be used and that I use when facillitating groups include Tibetan bowls, Gongs, Shamanic Drumming, Tuning forks & Crystal Bowls attuned to the Solfreggio frequencies (as discussed earlier). The voice is also used and is a powerful instrument altering our brain wave patterns, all to release, balance, and create depending upon the sounds and intentions set.
The process is in treating the whole energy body (integrating mind, body and soul), with sound healing along with the Power of Intention, especially as studies have shown our bodies being made up of over 80% water as discussed earlier. By shifting any blockages in the chakras and energy field our general health and well-being is improved by returning the body back into balance, it`s natural state through the power of Sound.
