Healing with Sound, Frequency & Vibration
Many people associate illness and disease with prescriptions and interventions such as surgery. But unfortunately, allopathic medicine and science have travelled a narrow pathway built on chemical substances and sharp devices rather than energy.
But the ancients recognized vibration, sound and frequency as powerful forces impacting life down to the cellular level. The amazing gifted Greek philosopher Pythagoras prescribed Music as medicine, affirming that the musical intervals he discovered are apparent expressions of sacred geometry. He understood that Music is the phenomena of numbers in time, reflecting the constructions of nature, as it can restore balance in an organism.
Sound Healing Research
According to an Institute of Health study, "Music effectively reduces anxiety for surgical and medical patients. It frequently lowers surgical and chronic pain. Providing Music may be a strategy to increase empathy, compassion, and care." In other words, Music is positive for patients and good for those who look after them.
In 2010 a Finnish study observed that stroke patients who were given admission to Music as cognitive therapy had improved recovery rates. Further research has displayed that patients suffering from the loss of speech due to a brain injury or a stroke regain it faster by learning to sing before trying to speak. "The Kenny Rogers Effect." is named after the marvel of Music facilitating healing within the brain after a stroke.
For people struggling with substance dependencies and addiction, learning to play an instrument may play a vital role in recovery. A study at the University of Wisconsin displayed that exposure to the right frequencies, tones, and Music creates dopamine, which is in short supply for the nervous system during withdrawal.
Quote: "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."
This quote by Nikola Tesla shows that he was ahead of his time in truly understanding the nature of the universe.
Singing bowl bathing is gaining popularity in reducing stress and anxiety and boosting well-being. While lying down with eyes closed, participants listen while a practitioner strikes many bowls.
Studies show that "sound bathing" reduces depression and anxiety; both are related to increases in disease. According to one analysis, "Sixty-two women and men with an average age of 50 reported much less tension, fatigue, anger, and depressed mood after sound sessions. Tibetan singing bowl meditation may be a possible low-cost, low-technology intervention for reducing sensations of anxiety, tension, depression, and an increase in spiritual well-being."
A published study in the Southern Medical Journal in 2005 demonstrated the beneficial effects of Music in hospital settings. Researchers reported, "For children and adults, music improves moods and reduces anxiety for medical and surgical patients in intensive care units." Researchers also noted that ambient Music improved caregivers' empathy without interrupting treatment's technical aspects.
Can Sound Fight Cancer?
In 1981 a biologist called Helene Grimal partnered with composer Fabien Maman to study the link of sound waves to living cells. Maman was an acupuncturist and had previously discovered that by using tuning forks and a coloured light on acupuncture points, he could accomplish similar and even grander results than he could with needles.
For 19 months, Grimal and Maman worked with the results of 30-40 decibel sounds on human cells. They used a camera mounted on a microscope; the experimenters observed uterine cancer cells exposed to different acoustic instruments (guitar, gong, xylophone) and the human voice, each session lasting 20 minutes.
Maman and Grimal Used the nine-note Ionian Scale C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C-D; When sound frequencies were exposed to cancer, they lost structural integrity and exploded at 14 minutes. However, the sound of a human voice was far more dramatic as the cells were destroyed at the nine-minute mark.
Grimal and Maman worked with two women with breast cancer. For the first month, one woman devoted three and a half hours a day to "toning" or singing the scale. Finally, one woman's tumour became undetectable, meaning it disappeared. The other woman underwent surgery. Her surgeon reported that her tumour had shrunk dramatically and was said to be "dried up" and then removed. The woman had a complete recovery and remission.
Maman said, "Cancer cells cannot retain structure when certain sound wave frequencies attack the cytoplasmic and nuclear membranes. When the vibratory rate gains, the cells cannot adapt or stabilize themselves and die by disintegrating and exploding."
Here's what you need to know:
- Whether experiencing a group sound healing session or an individual treatment, ask the sound healer about their experience and training.
- Know that while you are likely to have a very relaxing time, as with any healing experience, there is a possibility you might have a more powerful response, and that this is ultimately positive for bringing things to the surface physically, emotionally, or so that you can process and feel better.
- After a session, drink lots of water, hydrate and rest up.
- And finally, enjoy! Sound healing is the most incredible experience, either as a stand-alone treatment or combined with other therapeutic or energetic work.
