Sound Therapy

Sound therapy

Everything in the universe vibrates at it’s own unique frequency called a resonant frequency. This includes all of the cells, tissues, and organs of our bodies.   When we are healthy, everything in our bodies is vibrating in harmony or resonance.  Disease results when a part of our body begins to vibrate at a different rate, out of harmony with the rest. Through the concept of resonance and entertainment, sound can be used to change the vibration of the diseased part and bring it back.

Our body is composed not only of physical elements such as muscles, bones, nerves, arteries, organs, glands, etc.; it also has a subtle energy system through which ‘life force energy’ flows. This subtle energy system is composed of energy ‘bodies’ which surround our physical body and assist us in processing our thoughts and emotions. The energy bodies have energy centers called chakras, which work somewhat like valves that allow life force to circulate through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. We also have energy meridians and nadas. These are like rivers, or streams which carry our life force energy throughout our physical body, to nourish us and assist in balancing our body’s systems and functions.

Our body is also comprised of energy vibrating at different speeds. Our physical body, our thoughts, emotions, and our spiritual center, all vibrate at a particular frequency or speed. These varying vibrations or pulsations create a field around them which are often referred to as our aura or energy field. The aura is an information center and a highly perceptual system that transmits and receives messages from the external and internal environment.

Sound therapists believe that our bodies contain ‘energy frequencies’ and that sonic frequencies can be used to re-balance these energies when they go off key. Whether you come for a regular tune-up or relaxation session, or have a chronic long-term illness, sound could help you to enjoy a better quality of life.

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies.”

Many internal developments affect the rate of vibration of a human body.  Each cell, organ and system has its own vibration.  Each emotion that one feels, creates a separate vibration in the human body; each thought we have creates a unique vibration;  each color has its own vibration; every sound carries its own vibration; each smell has its own vibration. Many external factors affect the vibration of the human body.

To be healthy, an individual needs to have a high rate of vibration in their physical and auric bodies. This vibration is nourished in many ways including what we think, feel, believe, see, hear, smell, touch, eat, drink, breathe, and are exposed to.  As an individual becomes ill their rate of vibration lowers.  As the rate of vibration lowers the individual becomes more susceptible to other negative energies and invaders and the cycle of poor health becomes self-perpetuating.

 

Mantra in Ayurveda

Mantra used by our rishi’s and Guru’s is the same thing. You go to the great master who sees that the entire world in vibratory patterns. He sees that you are a unique vibratory pattern in the universe. He sings the acoustic octave (manta) of this sound to you, you sing it back until you know it and memorize it, then you go off and meditate and chant this sound to yourself – resonate yourself from the inside out and balance yourself right down to the core of your consciousness.

 

Origin of Sound Therapy

Music has been used as a healing force for centuries. Apollo is the ancient Greek god of music and of medicine. Sound has been used as a healing or calming tool for thousands of years. Human beings have been using sound to access deeper states of consciousness, expand awareness and heal the body. Himalayan singing bowls (standing bells that “sing”) have been used throughout Asia for thousands of years in prayer and meditation, and are now used to promote relaxation and well being, chanting, toning, Tibetan singing bowls, Chinese meditation gongs, and mantras, are just a few examples of this use of sound.

 

How it works

  • Everything in the universe vibrates at it’s own unique frequency called a resonant frequency. This includes all of the cells, tissues, and organs of our bodies.   When we are healthy, everything in our bodies is vibrating in harmony or resonance.  Disease results when a part of our body begins to vibrate at a different rate, out of harmony with the rest. Through the concept of resonance and entertainment, sound can be used to change the vibration of the diseased part and bring it back.
  • Physical resonance is like making a wine glass vibrate with the correct sound frequency. In this case, we can resonate different parts of the body with sound for healing. My first attempts with this were chiropractic spinal adjustments using sound. Each vertebra is a different size, density, and mass and, just like a wineglass, can be resonated with the correct sound. This causes the vertebra to vibrate back into position using only sound waves. Similarly, cranial bones and cerebrospinal fluid can be influenced with sound resonance. Each organ is a different size, density and mass for each person and also has a fundamental frequency, which causes a balancing of the cellular function. These changes can be seen on a blood chemistry-screening test.
  • The brain itself is an organ. This organ also has a unique size, density and mass. What would the effect be of exposing the brain to its own fundamental frequency vibration pattern? It would be a normalizing of its function as an organ, responding as any other organ would respond. Since the brain’s function is to coordinate and direct the function of all the other systems, we should see a global balancing of all the body’s systems at the moment the brain is exposed to its own single fundamental sound frequency.
  • Using sound, it is possible to make profound changes in brainwave patterns and states of consciousness, observable on brainwave mapping equipment (EEG), as well as positive changes in the body measurable with blood tests, biofeedback equipment and other sophisticated procedures.
  • With modern electronic sound equipment, we can test with frequencies accurate to 1/100th division of sharp or flat between two notes on the piano. To raise the accuracy and effect to a higher level, we must use a person’s own voice singing this fundamental note. This releases a unique set of harmonics and overtones, which only your own vocal cords can produce – a voice vibration fingerprint. This is an exact pattern match of your essential vibratory template – the one your “Biological Organic Intelligence” used in the first place to form your body from two cells and then to maintain it moment by moment thereafter. There is also a profound sense of recognition by the same part of the deep subconscious of the vibration frequencies of your own voice.
  • We then use this voice-tone-frequency, sounding the exact tone for balancing and healing, through sound-therapy.
  • By precisely altering the sound signals in the right and left ears, a “frequency modulated pulse” appears which causes a sympathetic response in the brain. This leads to coordination of right/left brainwave activity and a general slowing of brainwave activity, which is associated with deep relaxation, stress reduction, creativity, insight and problem solving. This phenomenon is called “brainwave entrainment.”
  • Many of the sounds heard on the recordings are sounds you don’t even notice. Certain sounds have the power to awaken deep levels of recognition in the subconscious mind. We call these sounds “Primordial Sounds,” – i.e., sounds that are primordially recognizable to the subconscious mind, regardless of race, sex or language.
  • Our first sensory experience in life as a fetus in the womb is of sound and vibration. We float in body temperature amniotic fluid – weight-less. We have fluid in our nose and mouth, which eliminates the senses of smell and taste. We have our eyes closed and are in the dark – no sense of sight. We have fluid in our ears pressed right up against the eardrum – but sound travels through water fives times more effectively than through air, therefore our sense of hearing is actually amplified. The symphony of sound patterns we experience at this time will be deeply embedded in our subconscious mind for the rest of our lives – the sound of water swishing, arterial pulse sounds and voices. These are our first experiences of “Primordial Sounds.”
  • Sound enters the healing equation from several directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may calm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help to regulate the immune system–the healer within.
