How Sound Can Inspire Us
How Sound Can Inspire Us
Sound is one of the purest forms of energy in existence. It inspires us, uplifts us, helps us to communicate, express ourselves, and even heal at a deep level. Have you ever stopped to consider how amazing it is that everything around you is fundamentally composed of energy that vibrates at different frequencies? The denser an object is, the lower its vibration is, and the lighter something is, the higher its vibration is. Vibration also corresponds to emotions. When we identify with emotions such as anger, hatred, jealousy, guilt, paranoia, and self-loathing, we actually lower our vibration. On the other hand, when we stop identifying with these emotions and instead see them simply as energy fluctuating within us, we begin to experience “high vibration” states such as love, peace, gratitude, creativity, and self-fulfillment. It’s important here to remember that there’s nothing wrong with feeling any type of emotion, including uncomfortable ones. Unfortunately, many new age writers use the term “low vibration” to condemn and therefore spiritually bypass emotions such as anger or grief. Ironically, condemning these emotions actually generates more fear and resistance within the psyche, which further solidifies a “low vibrational” state of being. While the best way to experience high vibration states such as love and bliss is to stop identifying and attaching to thoughts and emotions, there are helpful catalysts out there which help to center your energy. The Ancient Benefits of Rhythm & Repetition What most people don't realise is that although the creation of binaural beats music has only been possible through technological advancement in the last 100 or so years, yet the use of this natural science dates back thousands of years. Ancient cultures were aware of how the brain could be entrained through sound repetition well before modern science was able to prove the process.If we look back through history, we find many examples of music being used as medicine and therapy:- The Ancient Greeks used music to ease stress, promote sleep, and soothe pain. Through the use of repetitive drumming, singing and chanting, Tibetan monks, African elders, Native American shamans, Hindu healers and master Yogis, as part of their rituals, have been able to induce specific states of being for deep meditation, transcending consciousness and healing.
What are Solfeggio Frequencies? The Solfeggio Frequencies are a series of 6 electromagnetic musical tones that the Gregorian Monks were said to use when they chanted in meditation. Rediscovered in 1974 by Dr. Joseph Puleo, the Solfeggio Frequencies are said to deeply penetrate the conscious and subconscious mind, stimulating inner healing. These healing frequencies in the Book of Numbers (a book in the Hebrew Bible), using a numerological technique to decipher the six repeating codes he found. The result was the rediscovery of the Solfeggio Frequencies. Physicist, inventor, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla once said, “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe.” Interestingly, these three numbers form the root vibration of the six Solfeggio Frequencies. The Solfeggio Frequencies: UT – 396 Hz – transforming grief into joy and guilt into forgiveness RE – 417 Hz – clears negativity and removes subconscious blockages MI – 528 Hz – stimulates love, restores equilibrium, repairs DNA FA – 639 Hz – strengthens relationships, family, and community unity SOL – 741 Hz – physically cleanses the body from all types of toxins LA – 852 Hz – awakens intuition and helps you return to spiritual balance Six Powerful Solfeggio Frequencies That Raise Your Vibration The Solfeggio Frequencies were said to be used in over 150 Gregorian chants, and are said to increasingly raise your vibration when listened to. Each Solfeggio tone helps to peel back layers of negativity and energy blockages, helping you to experience emotional and spiritual release. Many people describe listening to these tones as calming, inspiring, cleansing, and even revelatory in that they help us to experience clarity and understanding about the problems in our lives. Others who listen to the Solfeggio Frequencies may experience headaches or even repressed emotions like anger rise to the surface in response to the mismatch of vibration. In other words, these sound healing frequencies may have a “purging” effect on your energy field, which might make you feel a bit queasy! On the other hand, you might react to these sounds extremely well, so please do listen and experiment. 1. UT – 396 Hz UT helps those who struggle with feelings such as guilt, fear, and grief. This tone is highly grounding and cleansing. I also highly recommend trying out binaural beats as a form of healing, such as this track that helps to remove anxiety. 2. RE – 417 Hz RE helps you to clear negativity and removes subconscious blockages in the form of limiting core beliefs, toxic thinking patterns, and harmful habits. It's tone is primarily about facilitating change and connecting you back with the Divine Source. 3. MI – 528 Hz MI often thought of as the “love frequency”. This sound vibration is also said to be central to creation and is thought to restore inner equilibrium, increase awareness, repair DNA, and stimulate transformation. 4. FA – 639 Hz FA helps helps to increase understanding, tolerance, interpersonal harmony, and empathy. As such it is said to strengthen relationships, family connection, and unity with others. If you’re struggling in your work or personal relationships, this sound frequency may help you create more harmony, attracting and manifesting more love. 5. SOL – 741 Hz SOL is the frequency which is said to help detox the body from all types of pollutants (viral, fungal, bacterial, electromagnetic). f you’re struggling with chronic aches and pains. This sound vibration is also said to be useful when trying to solve problems as it will increase mental clarity. 6. LA – 852 Hz The “LA” sound frequency awakens your intuition and helps you return to spiritual balance. This tone also helps you to see through illusions and discover the highest truth, aiding you in communicating more openly with Spirit. Binaural Beats Besides the Solfeggio Frequencies, another way to distress is to listen to Binaural Beats. Both Binaural Beats and Solfeggio Frequencies follow the same principles of gradually lowering the brain wave frequencies from Beta (wakeful state) to Alpha (semi wakeful state), and may even go lower in deep states of meditation. How Do Binaural Beats Work? The word Binaural means “having or relating to two ears”. This represents the process, which works by simultaneously sending a marginally different sound frequency to each ear through headphones. The entrainment happens inside the brain, and is caused by a physiological response. Upon hearing two tones of different frequencies – sent simultaneously to the left and right ears – the brain perceives a new tone, or third tone as some refer to it, based on the mathematical difference between the two frequencies. The brain then follows along at the new frequency and produces brainwaves at the same rate of Hertz (Hz), thus becoming entrained to that frequency. For example: If a 200 Hz sound frequency is sent to the left ear, and a 205 Hz frequency to the right ear, the brain will process those two frequencies and perceive a new frequency at 5 Hz. The brain then follows along at the new frequency (5 Hz), producing brainwaves at the same rate of Hertz (Hz). The technical term for this process is ‘Frequency Following Response'. The brain will only respond in the intended way if it receives the sound frequencies at the same time through headphones.
Five Binaural Beats Brainwave States 1. Delta 0.1 -4 Hz Enhances deep sleep,pain relief, anti-ageing, healing and access to the unconscious mind. 2. Theta 4 -8 Hz Enhances rern sleep, relaxation, inner peace, meditation, creativity, hypnotic states, 3. Alpha 8 - 14 Hz Enhances positive thinking, stress reduction, accelerated learning and effortless engagement. 4. Beta `4 -30 Hz Enhances focused attention, high level cognition, analytical thinking, problem solving, energy and action stimulation. 5. Gamma 30 - 100 Hz Enhances high level information processing, cognitive enhancement, memory recall, peak awareness and transcendental states of awareness. Conclusion There is no doubt that sounds affect all living things at a fundamental and subliminal level. Some tests have shown that loud rock music or can actually negatively affect plant growth while plants developed healthily if exposed to soothing sounds.
If you’ve been suffering from stress and insomnia, how about listening to some of these tones, or better still, listen to them via some real speakers before and while falling asleep. Many people who listen to them frequently say they feel a lot calmer and it helps them achieve deeper states in meditation.
There are many Binaural Beat and Solfeggio Frequency sessions on Youtube. All you have to do is put on a pair on headphones, relax and press play. It's that easy.
