We live in an ocean of sound and frequencies. From the sound of your mother’s voice, a bird’s song, or the turning over of the engine in your car, every sound counts. These vibrations give meaning to your world. Everything has a vibrational signature including the moment that registered as you when you were born. Sound frequencies express themselves in every aspect of your life. When you know this, the realization of the importance of acknowledging your inner sound, your expressions and relationship with your environment expands.
Music is associated with the emotional body, and helps to build harmonic structures for healing. This can be seen in the work of sound therapists, Qi Gong Medical practitioners and in the work of Resonance Repatterning©. When unresolved emotions or traumatic experiences are stored in the body, they get stored as frequencies. Sound, melody and intervals (space between two notes) serve as energetic tools to enliven, break up, and restore greater harmony and balance to the body-mind field.
According to Fabien Maman, author of The Role of Music in the 21st Century, musical tones create physiological effects at different levels.
- Specific musical notes are linked to specific acupuncture points, and stimulate or tonify life energy flow.
- Melodies create responses at the molecular level.
- Harmony works with the ganglia (nerve clusters and sympathetic nervous system including the heart, glands and involuntary muscles and endocrine system (system necessary for normal growth and development, reproduction and homeostasis).
- Resonating vibrational frequencies created by harmonic overtones link with your nervous system, chakras, and subtle energy bodies.
We’ve all had the experience of listening to music to change our moods. Music can help you feel energized or calm down. The work of Don Campbell who published The Mozart Effect has been used in hospitals and schools to help create greater harmony and healing. Accelerated Learning for new language acquisition has been employed with the use of Baroque Music through the Lozanov Technique successfully for learning. Music with the frequencies of the Earth underneath have been used to calm people with anxiety or attention deficit disorder through the work of Heart Math Institute. Music moves us and generates change at the emotional, mental and physical levels.
In a world of increased mechanical sound and electric music, we have been impacted by a depletion of natural and tonal diversity. Jill Purce, a sound therapist, acknowledges the vital importance of making your own sound to serve the need for connection to self-healing and the Earth. She cites that our separation from care of the Earth as humanity is directly related to our separation from making natural sound.
Not only is it important to make sounds which vibrate through the bones and systems of our own bodies, it is important to hear them. When we stop listening to the natural sounds found in the forests and jungles, we sacrifice part of our sound ecosystem, and lose part of our connection to that which nourishes us all. Jonathon Goldman speaks to the fact that each and every tone in these systems are integral to the health of the bigger picture.
Your own voice can actually help you feel more grounded, process emotions, and feel supported. For thousands of years, song has served as a way to express emotion as a connection to one another through storytelling, to the Earth, the Heavens to the greater All That Is. There is good reason for this. Your voice creates vibration. Your ears energize your brain. Bringing song back into your life can serve as an empowering natural healing tool.
Working with the natural vibrational qualities of your own voice and acoustic instruments creates a fuller spectrum of harmonics to impact change in your life. In fact, according to Sharry Edwards, a sound frequency researcher, the human voice can serve to identify issues on the emotional, mental and physical levels. Missing tonal frequencies can identify and measure dis-stress, dis-ease and wellness. In Resonance Repatterning® sessions, tones are checked for resonance regarding frequency material in your body-mind system. Shifting frequencies literally changes radio channels at the energetic level of life for healing.
In a universe of vibration, every sound counts!
