'"Every illness is a musical problem-the healing, a musical solution…” Novalis, (1772-1801)
How often has music or a particular song moved you or lifted your spirits?
Perhaps a particular song or piece of music brings forward a memory, and when you hear that sound you are almost transported back to that time. Sound is extremely powerful. Healing through sound brings the physical body, mind and soul into a state of natural balance and harmony. This is achieved through the use of specific vibrational sound frequencies which can be created by the voice (chanting, singing or toning), Tibetan or Quartz crystal singing bowls, gongs or tuning forks, for example. The application of these sound frequencies along with the intention of healing, creates a space in which the health and wellbeing of a person can be supported.
How is this possible?
Sound in any form is essentially a source of energy and we know that the Universe and everything within it is energy or vibrating matter. Every organism, object and every part of the human body is made up of vibrating particles, which vibrate at their own unique frequency. The frequency at which something most naturally vibrates is called resonance. All the cells in our body are sound resonators so cells share resonance to form an organ, and every organ will respond as a group to particular sound vibrations just like all the different instruments which make up a beautiful sounding orchestra.
When we are experiencing dis-ease its like our bodies are “out of tune”. The good news is that the human body is made up of over 70% water, which makes it an excellent conductor of sound. Furthermore, it’s not only the physical body and it’s various systems that are affected by sound – emotional, mental and the spiritual states of consciousness can all be supported, strengthened and balanced through sound and resonance too.
“What makes us feel drawn to music is that our whole being is music: our mind and body, the nature in which we live, the nature which has made us, all that is beneath and around us, it is all music.”
Hazrat Inyat Khan (Sufi Master)
