Creation stories around the world identify sound as the creative force by which the Divine Source manifested first light, and then the material reality. This has been “the Word” or “Aum” also known as “Om”. Indeed the most modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature.
Cultures around the world use sound to attune to, invoke, and transform consciousness. One is easily brought into a hypnotic state of alpha or even theta waves through the use of sound. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings. Indeed the most modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature.
Sound healing is the intentional use of sound to create an environment that becomes a catalyst for healing in the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual aspects of our being. While intention is not necessary to effect change with the use of sound, our intention brings greater power to the purpose of it. However, by coupling sound, or music, with pure intention to attune to, invoke, or transform one’s consciousness, we indeed have stepped into a powerful place.
The power of sound, whether through voice or instruments can move us into ecstatic states of joy or deep states of release, thereby changing our vibrational level by raising us up vibrationally, or allowing us to release that which has bogged us down.
To become “healed,” simply means to become “whole.” If a part of our body is out of balance we can retune it like tuning a piano. If a piano is out of tune, do we drug the offending key or rip out the offending piano wire? This is precisely what we do to the human body so often within the Western medical practice.
Rudolph Steiner said, “There will come a time when a diseased condition will not be described as it is today by physicians and psychologists, but it will be spoken of in musical terms, as one would speak of a piano that was out of tune.”
The healing effects of sound can provide relief and cessation of acute and chronic mental, emotional and physical issues (including stress, insomnia, ability to concentrate, various immune system issues, emotional disorders and many more) as well as initiation and/or heightened clarity in direct contact with spirit guides and angels, finding life purpose, increased ability to manifest, and more.
The principle of entrainment states that whenever two or more oscillators in the same field are pulsing at nearly the same rate, they tend to lock in and begin pulsing at exactly the same rate. The powerful rhythmic vibrations from one source will cause less powerful vibrations of another source to lock into the vibration of the first source.
Nature seeks the path of less resistance or the most efficient flow. We see the law of entrainment in action when birds fly together in migration; they will flap their wings together and glide at the same time. Also, as many have heard, women who live together often entrain their menstrual cycles.
