The healing power of sound

Sound healing is used by many therapists, myself included, to promote a sense of deep calm and wellbeing. I personally use the Solfeggio frequencies both in background music and directly using tuning forks and the deep relaxation that follows is quite spectacular.

Whether sound frequencies in themselves promote healing or whether they lead to a deep relaxation that enables to body to self correct by achieving an inner homeostatic balance is uncertain. Regardless of the mechanism of action, there is an effect and I have seen it bring people to experience a profound sense of inner peace.

One experience that stands out in my own mind is when I was treating a young mildly autistic child. He began to giggle and said that he could see lines of colour coming out from the tuning forks and that they were tickling him in a nice way. He could also see colours flowing from my hands. I wish I had his gift of vision!

The other great gift of using sound in that session was that it really engaged this young boy and he began to chat and open up about how he saw the world. It was a session where I felt like the student, as this child’s view of the world and keen perception was full of insight and taught me that what we see as disability was in this case an emotional and perceptive range far beyond the grasp of most of us ‘ordinary’ humans!

An Israeli team of sound therapists have been doing a lot of work with the Solfeggio frequencies, in particularly with the 528hz frequency which resonates with the heart centre. Their experience along with a youtube of the event is posted below:

In June, 2009, Shai Danon and Amiti Media began experimenting with and documenting the implementation of a newly discovered technique they created after exploring the application of the frequency of 528hz on water, based on the scientific findings of Dr. Joseph Puleo and Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

Considering the known impact of frequency on the molecular composition of cells, they easily discerned that directing pure tonal vibrations towards a subject would have an all over physiological effect that could restore cells to their pure, unadulterated state.

Dr. Masuru Emoto’s research on the impact of sound and prayer on water made it evident that, since human cells are made of at least 70% water, applying a specialized technique to the physical body would affect people on a cellular level, potentially restoring overall body health to the recipient of treatment.

Amiti and Shai combined three aspects of science into one technique: Directing accurate sound waves to energy centers of the body, utilizing water as the best known conductor and Quartz Crystal as the best naturally transmitting amplifier.

Techniques such as Watsu, Jahara, Water Dance, Hydrotherapy for the disabled and communing with dolphins have been gaining momentum worldwide over the past several years, and throughout Israel in particular. Working with over 30 various hydrotherapists, they all acknowledge the profound impact these specific sounds have on their patient’s recovery.

An epic transformative event occurred at the World Water Festival in Eilat in February, 2010. Amiti’s instinct was to arrive early and meet the dolphins with the floating crystal bowls, to see how they would respond to these frequencies underwater.

From the underwater videos, it is clear that the dolphins enjoyed the experience and were not bothered but rather curious and open to receive the vibrations and sing back. This was an important acknowledgement from the “masters of sound.”

At the festival, which hosted a majority of expert water therapists from throughout the world, Ahava 528 held workshops and presentations which strongly influenced the overall atmosphere of the event, culminating in a final session in a therapeutic seawater pool where over 70 people circled and toned together in the water to the frequency of 528hz. Without anyone expecting it, the mood naturally escalated from a meditative state into unrestricted waves of spontaneous laughter, joy and dance which lasted into the night.

Heart Healing: Coherence

Heart Coherence

Following from a previous post 10 Things to know about the Power of the Heart this video from the HeartMath Institute provides a very well visualised description of heart coherence.

Coherence plays an important role in helping the body to regain homeostatic balance especially when under pressure due to stress and/or anxiety.

Complementary therapists welcome the research of institutions such as HeartMath as coherence is also an important part of energy therapy and the visuals here depict the world of energy medicine very nicely.

Enjoy!

From HeartMath:

The Spiritual Heart — is in a way a little like a smart phone, invisibly connecting us to a large network of information. It is through an unseen energy that the heart emits that humans are profoundly connected to all living things. The energy of the heart literally links us to each other. Every person’s heart contributes to a ‘collective field environment.’ This short video explains the importance of this connection and how we each add to this collective energy field. The energetic field of the heart even connects us with the earth itself.

The HeartMath Institute (http://www.heartmath.org) is helping provide a more comprehensive picture of this connection between all living things through a special science-based project called the Global Coherence Initiative (http:///www.heartmath.org/gci.) They hope to help explain the mysteries of this connection between people and the earth…and even the sun.

Scientists at the HeartMath Institute (HMI) have already conducted extensive research on the power of heart, the heart/brain connection, heart intelligence and practical intuition.

Whether personal relationships, social connections, or even the global community – we are all connected through a field of electromagnetic energy. Increasing individual awareness of what we bring to this field environment could be the key to creating a sustainable future, a future that we can be proud to have helped create.

Recap from our previous article:

Did you know that…

1. Your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions.

2. The heart is 500 times electrically stronger than the brain and up to 5000 times magnetically stronger.

3. The human heart’s magnetic field can be measured up to several feet away from the body.

4. The heart has a system of neurons that have both short and long term memory.

5. That signals sent to the brain by the heart neurons can affect emotional experiences.

6. The heart send more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart.

7. The electromagnetic signal produced by your heart is registered in the brain waves of people around you.

8. In the womb, the heart forms and starts to beat before the brain is developed.

9. A mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her her baby’s heartbeats.

10. Your physiological responses sync up with your mate’s during empathetic interactions

My approach to healing..

The methods I use are a mind-body-spirit approach to holistic well being. My aim is to give clients an understanding of the extraordinary world we live in, an insight into the exquisite feeling machine we call the body and a users guide on how to operate successfully in both environments.

The body and the human being combined becomes a vast interplay of matter and energy, thought and form, dream and nightmare. We can choose whether to have the dream or the nightmare and the various methods I use offer some tools to help in making that choice.

FREE YOUR MIND
First we work at freeing the mind. It is vital to deal with stressful and negative thinking, faulty ‘learned’ behaviours and any thoughts which limit, block or prevent success.

FEEL YOUR LIFE
Secondly we look at the body as a feeling machine and explore how energy moves in the body and how we continually ‘read’ our environments. Participants will learn how to open and close their energy channels and more importantly how to use their energy centres; how to work with guidance and how to energetically protect themselves.

LIVE THE EXPERIENCE
Thirdly we look at translating the new learning to our lives and the importance of using our energetic abilities to give and receive. The healing method taught is a form of ‘hands-off’ energy healing that participants can use both on themselves and on others.

Throughout the process, clients will be given techniques and exercises that, with practice, will help them to tune in to and uncover their inner selves, their bodies and their intuition.

I have been fortunate to train with the world class teachers, Zoran/Zdenko Domancic,  Byron Katie and Sonia Choquette and have been practicing the techniques of Self-Knowledge, as taught by Prem Rawat Maharaji, for over twenty years. In addition I had a corporate career in Public Relations and Marketing and am now a successful writer and Intuitive Mentor.   I am an avid student of Quantum Physics and Cleve Baxter’s Primary Perception findings and have combined all these approaches to put forward a world view that is consistent with current scientific theory as well as cutting edge healing techniques.

My aim is to bring the body back to a point of deep relaxation and from there it can reset itself and activate the natural immune function. The mind has to be dealt with also and I believe the Work of Byron Katie to be revolutionary in its approach. I trained with Katie and use her methods to get clients to a point where they eliminate faulty and negative thinking and, secondly, come to an understanding of right brain / left brain difference. From this point of balance, the potential to use all the current findings from physics and healing practices can be learned. The potential of the Human Being is beautiful and limitless and more than anything that is what my approach aims to uncover.

In it’s purest form I see this integrated approach as a process that helps a person to understand how to operate the body they inhabit!

10 Things to know about the Power of the Heart

As science looks more and more at the human body with greater technology, we have begun to come full circle in understanding what the ancients knew about the heart, the brain, and divine consciousness. What is the heart? Is it more than just a pump for blood? Or could the truth about its power be related to the essence of your entire being, and have a field of energy so great that it can transform not just your own being into that of light, love and happiness, but even those around you. What is the shining light of the heart, and how can you access it and gain the inner knowing of who you are and why you are here? (from Spirit Science)

Here are 10 things to know about the heart:

Did you know that…

1. Your heart emits electromagnetic fields that change according to your emotions.

2. The heart is 500 times electrically stronger than the brain and up to 5000 times magnetically stronger.

3. The human heart’s magnetic field can be measured up to several feet away from the body.

4. The heart has a system of neurons that have both short and long term memory.

5. That signals sent to the brain by the heart neurons can affect emotional experiences.

6. The heart send more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart.

7. The electromagnetic signal produced by your heart is registered in the brain waves of people around you.

8. In the womb, the heart forms and starts to beat before the brain is developed.

9. A mother’s brainwaves can synchronize to her baby’s heartbeats.

10. Your physiological responses sync up with your mate’s during empathetic interactions

 

This video from Spirit Science is a great overview on all aspects of the power of the heart:

The Heartmath Institute specializes in studying all aspects of the heart. Through their studies they show what healers have known for a long time, namely that negative emotions create a nervous system chaos, while positive emotions create coherence in the body and positive emotions boost the immune system. In a later post I’ll talk more about how all of this fits into why I think energy healing works so effectively…
