How Sounds Heal Us – Cymatics, the Science of Sound

Everything is vibration and made up of energy at various frequencies. All things in nature vibrate to sound, light and color and sound frequencies effect everything about us.

The Sound (hearable or not to the human ears) has a great impact on our subconscious, on our brain and profound effects on our body, emotions and spirit.

We can feel it when hearing our favorite song or when we sit quietly and listen to the waves of the ocean. There is a palpable peace when we are absorbed in nature sounds, their natural flow of music have healing effects on us as they play a music our body resonates to feeling immediately at peace, balanced and whole.

Our body is not a solid mass despite what we commonly think, it is a melody of sounds combined by an orchestea, a melody that shaped the matter in this specific way. Sound healing works on the belief that the human body is not solid. Rather it is energy that is held together by sound.

Any disease therefore indicates that some sound has gone out of tune.

This may sound poetic but in reality is evidence-science based.

How exactly does sound work to heal us?

Definition of Sound Healing:

Sound healing is the practice of using sound to realize and correct imbalances in the body.

The correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance our bodies.

Dr. John Beaulieu, ND, PhD stated that “The fundamental principle of Energy Medicine is that an underlying energy field generates physical, emotional, and mental behaviors or symptoms. If we change the energy field, the physical, emotional, and mental behaviors will also change”.

The science of Sound (aka Cymatics)

One of the most effective ways to change the energy field is through a science named cymatics. The Swiss Doctor Hans Jenny, M.D. of Basel Switzerland, was one of the first scientists to demonstrate how sounds literally works and shapes all forms. In the beginning of the 21st century, the fascinating experiments involved using sand, fluid or some other powder on a metal plate that was attached to an oscillator. An oscillator is essentially a vibrator, but his oscillator was controlled by a generator that was able to produce thousands of types of frequencies, some found in Nature, and others are created by man.

By simply changing the frequencies on the oscillator, Dr Hans Jenny found that sand, or water or whatever substance he was using to create a visible medium for his sound, would transform quickly into incredibly harmonious ad beautiful shapes. These shapes displayed all the characteristics of divine geometry, and the higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes would appear to be.

Since all matter is just different frequencies of the collapsed wave, or quantum field, then we have the ability to create a different reality with sound.The sacred sound OM, for example, causes a certain frequency to imprint upon the ‘matter’ around it, and thus changes the energetic field.

Emoto’s experiment: thoughts and emotions are vibration

Masaru Emoto was a Japanese researcher who demonstrated how human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water and how positive or negative thoughts pollute or clear water through prayer and positive visualization.

Emoto published several volumes of a work entitled Messages from Water, which contain photographs of ice crystals and their accompanying experiments.

Basically his experiment showed how beautifully-shaped geometric designs can be created by transmitting positive thoughts and feelings onto the water (ex. “I love you”, “I am grateful”, etc )and the opposite, how those structures could be easily distorted into ungraceful disharmonious forms when exposed to negativity (ex. statements such as ‘ I hate you’ ‘I want to kill you’, etc). These crystallized shapes were in a frozen state.

This is another famous experiment indicating that everything is vibration, including (and especially) thoughts and emotions that have energetic fields particularly powerful.


The fascinating link between colors, chakras and the Solfeggio

It is quite astonishing to discover the striking ‘coincidences’ we find in Nature and how everything is deeply linked.

For example each color corresponds to one of the chakras in our body in frequency emission terms. Sound and colors are used to heal and balance body’s energies.

Note below how each chakra relates to a musical note and to each color of the rainbow spectrum.




Solfeggio Frequencies

The Solfeggio frequencies are the original musical scale used in ancient Christian chants (Gregorian chants) such as the hymn to St. John the Baptist. Their special spiritual overtones were believed to diffuse great spiritual blessings and transformation, when sung in harmony.

Each Solfeggio Frequencies has an effect to its corresponding chakra. Below Dr. Jane Ma’ati Smith C.Hyp. Msc.D give a very general overview of their resonance:

1. UT – 396 Hz /256Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear (the 1st Chakra)
2. RE – 417 Hz/ 288Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change (the 2nd Chakra)
3. MI – 528 Hz / 320 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (the 3rd Chakra)
4. FA – 639 Hz/ 341Hz– Connecting/Relationships (the 4th Chakra)
5. SOL – 741 Hz/ 384hz – Awakening Intuition (the 5th Chakra)
6. LA – 852 Hz / 488– Returning to Spiritual Order (the 6th Chakra)

The “East meets West” in this “coincidence” (there are no coincidences in reality only synchronicity), these Solfeggio frequencies correspond to the Chakra frequencies, with the 7th Chakra vibrating at 963 Hz. We use these Chakra balancing Solfeggio frequencies as the binaural beats (two different tones received in each ear) and isochronic tones (same sound received by both ears), to help heal body, mind and soul.

What is physical, emotional or spiritual illness ?

Emotional issues that are unresolved block the healing vibrations or cause the disease state to return.
– R Gordon

Every illness or emotional problem is blocked energy in the body. Is when the internal orchestra makes an unharmonious noise because one or several instruments are damaged or not well tuned.

Hence, exposure to its original corresponding Hz frequency causes an energetic rebalancing bringing the body to its original optimal functioning by releasing the blocks.
