Introduction to Sound Healing
Since the beginning of history, sound has been used to create certain moods in the listener. Different sounds affect people in different ways. Violin that plays on a high note, energizes human mind and makes it peaceful. Marching bands are used to fire-up an army or sports team, and a mother’s lullaby soothes a troubled child. The different ragas of Indian classical music are attuned to different times of the day or different seasons to harmonize the listener with the rhythms of nature.
As a cure or a solution, modern science is only now beginning to recognize what the ancient mystics and wise men have told us for centuries; which is, everything (including you) is in a constant state of vibration. The most elemental state of vibration is that of sound. Everything has an optimum range of vibration, and that rate is called resonance. When we are in resonance, we are in balance. One way to use sound to heal the body is to recognize that every organ, and every cell, absorbs and emits sound, and has a particular optimum resonate frequency. Each separate vibration has evolved, to reflect the whole in infinite disguises, giving rise to the world in which we live. All life is vibration, and vibration is life.
With the right sounds and scientific process of application, you can align yourself with the vibrations that foster health, happiness, success and unity.
History of Sound Healing
We at Wellness Vibe have taken the onus upon ourselves to spread the benefits of Sound Therapy in India and Internationally, this would never had been possible without knowing the roots of this spiritual science. Let us explain you the history of Sound Therapy in detail.
Most ancient cultures used the seemingly magical power of sound in ceremonies and healing.
Science too, has understood the power of music in the healing and energizing processes. Pythagoras known as the “Father of Mathematics”, “Father of Geometry” and“Father of Music”,discovered the ‘musical intervals’ and taught that one could heal using sound and harmonic frequencies.
He was the first person to prescribe music as medicine.In Turkey, Sufi music is used to decrease patient stress. Ancient civilizations understood the powerful benefits of sound and vibration. They composed music based on perfect mathematical proportions, also known as sacred geometry, that can be found in the construction of many ancient sacred temples. In our civilization, sound healing had almost disappeared until the 1930s when acoustic researchers’ discovered ultrasound and its medical properties. With this discovery, research burgeoned and today the ancient art of sound healing is rapidly developing into a new science. Sound therapy is said to affect physiologic parameters, including breathing and heart rate, blood pressure and neuro-muscular tone. Owing to these effects, this therapy has been found useful in treating Alzheimer’s disease, terminally ill patients, childbirth, dentistry, and psychotherapy. Healing frequencies can bring balance, relaxation and wholesomeness to our body. A feeling that makes everything right.
Core Principles of Sound Healing
All life is vibration, as is the mind and matter itself.
Everything is in movement, from electrons circling the nucleus in an atom, to planets revolving around suns in galaxies. Everything vibrates and if it vibrates, it is making a sound. – Novalis
Ancient scriptures and practices around human wellness, always involved sound as part of their therapy process. Now, science too, has begun to re-discover the secrets of resonance and its impact on our well-being. Wellness therapies which
is a synergy of ancient methods coupled with scientific technology,adopt the natural resonanceof attracting what one wants to achieve: love, happiness, personal development, health and abundance.
According to Spand Shastra, one of our ancient scriptures, we are not separated from the vibrations that are interdependent in its resonanceand fundamentals which helpto maintain and regulate our mood and health.
According to quantum physics, sound frequencies bring balance, relaxation and wholeness to our body. A group of elements create sound which may be used for healing, transformation or relaxation.
Life needs a pause, to introspect and create wellness within us, enabling us to move forward with renewed vigor. So many people are in the rat-race, striving to achieve their dreams. Some wantsuccess, whilst the other is looking for inner peace. But, the question here is, are we don’t do it the right way.
The sound therapy, we share with you, will give you the answer .
The Human Brain
Human Brain is like a ‘Mother Board’ where everything we do is regulated and recorded. It is from here that we receive commands for feelings, behaviour and action. Hence, it is very important to give it the correct nutrition to enable it to keep us healthy and active. Brain nutrition fills our heart with happiness and love, reason and compassion, forgiveness and understanding. It also enables performance and cognitive reasoning.
Brain Chemical: There are approximately 100,000 chemical reactions which go on in a human brain every second! Almost all chemicals in the brain are known as neurotransmitters, which mean, they help in passing and modulating signals between neurons and other cells. Scientists have found that, when the brain is in slower brain wave states (like alpha and theta), it produces specific hormones and “neuropeptides.” These hormones effect, boosted memory, creativity and ability to learn. Chemical imbalance in the brain is believed to be the cause for emotional distress and disturbances. Some of the important neurotransmitters, which we refer to as DOMES are Dopamine, Oxytocin, Melatonin, Endorphin and Serotonin.
DOPAMINE: Commonly associated with the ‘pleasure area’ of the brain, this chemical initiates feelings of enjoyment and the required boost to motivate us to do, or continue doing, certain activities. This neurotransmitter is released in areas such as the nucleus acumens and striatum and provides naturally rewarding experiences while having food, sex, drugs or any stimuli that become associated with them.
OXYTOCIN: A hormone made in the brain, in the hypothalamus area, Oxytocin is secreted by the pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. This chemical is often referred to as the “love hormone”, “hug hormone”, “cuddle chemical”, “moral molecule”, and “bliss hormone” as it affects human behaviour and plays a crucial role in love and female reproductive functions.
MELATONIN: A compound found in human beings, animals, plants and microbes, the function of Melatonin is to circulate certain levels of hormones daily, allowing the entrainment of the circadian rhythms in several biological functions. A natural sleep inducer and regulator, this chemical is secreted by the pineal gland when night falls, thus regulating sleep patterns. Production of melatonin is disrupted if the regular sleep pattern is disrupted.
ENDORPHIN: One of the neurotransmitters found in the human brain, Endorphins are natural pain killing substances. The name comes from endogenous (meaning within) and morphine (morphine being a pain killer). Increased endorphins in our brain has been linked to theta and alpha brain wave states of consciousness. Being in this state of consciousness, heightens our imagination, visualization, memory, learning, concentration, inspiration and creativity factors. Electro-acupuncture and binaural sounds have been used to stimulate the production of endorphins.
SEROTONIN: Low serotonin levels in the brain can lead to anxiety, irritability and sleep disorders. These are factors normally associated with depression. Similarly, reduced levels of norepinephrine, a chemical responsible for arousal and alertness, can lead to fatigue and a general depressed mood.
Both of these chemical formations can be controlled or regulated using the right sound frequencies, when listened to frequently, leads to being in a perpetual well-being state.
Brain Waves and Brain ActivationMethods
- Different States of Mind
The human mind is a wonderful and amazing piece of intricate machinery. There are two main parts to the human mind:
The Conscious Mind: This is the analytical and critical part of our brain that governs our awareness or consciousness at any point in time. It is the final processing point for our decisions, actions or reactions in daily life, and which we are aware that we are making.
The Subconscious Mind: This is the ‘deeper’ part of the mind that is responsible for processing thousands of things at any given time and for storing everything we have experienced throughout our lives, in varying degrees of importance.
Brain Waves: The mind operates at 4 predominant brainwave states or frequencies
Our brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other. The combination of millions of neurons sending signals at once, produce an enormous amount of electrical activity in the brain, which can be detected using sensitive medical equipment (such as an EEG), measuring electricity levels over areas of the scalp. The combination of electrical activity of the brain is commonly called a Brainwave pattern, because of its cyclic, ‘wave-like’ nature. Our mind regulates its activities by means of electric waves which are registered in the brain, emitting tiny electrochemical impulses of varied frequencies, which can be registered by an electroencephalogram. These brainwaves are known as:
Brain Activation Methods
Sound, Colour and Our Energy Field
As we know, there is a direct connection between light, sound and colour and that the natural frequencies produced by light and sound corresponds to various organs, endocrine glands and even our mental or emotional states. Sound and Colour Healing, also known as Vibrational Healing, uses the different frequencies of light to inject energy into our Aura’s energy centres (Chakras) and the Auric Field. This acts like a vitamin for the energy fields of the body and can speed heal, promote general wellness, and enhance physical and emotional well-being.
Sound and Frequency
Every atom in the universe and cell in our body is vibrating constantly. This process can be directed and enhanced through the power of sound frequencies in the form of words and music, among other things. Interestingly, vibrational healing is nothing new. It has been successfully practiced in numerous forms all over the world for thousands of years. Sound and frequency therapy is a new alternative therapy which is researching the effects of low frequency sound and vibration on human health and wellness. Every organ, tissue, and cell has its vibrations which, when in harmony, creates the most wonderful symphony imaginable to the human body. If disharmony arises or a break in the unfolding of the vibration occurs, there develops a loss of wholeness leading to discomfort and disease. The effects of sound are apparent in our everyday life. We know the power of sound and music and how our voice changes with emotional states or illness. Our health or mood can be strongly affected by music, toning, chanting, and singing.
Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena and vibrations, is a scientific methodology that demonstrates the vibratory nature of matter and the transformational nature of sound. The term (Kymatiks in German), was adapted from the Greek word for wave, ta Kyma, in the 1960s by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972).
A study of visible sound, Cymatics shows how vibrations interact to create the world we experience ‘out there’. It brings to light hidden principles, which underlie all natural processes.
Sound is an invisible force that permeates every aspect of our lives. Yet if we could see sound, our world would be even more beautiful than we could imagine. To see sound is to open a new window onto our world, one that has been veiled in mystery until recently.
Findings of great Physicians and Musicians .
ERNST CHLADNIKnown as the father of acoustics, German Physicist and Musician, Ernst Chladni showed that sound affects physical matter.
Chladni drew a violin bow across the edge of metal plates which were sprinkled with fine sand. Different frequencies produced different geometrical patterns.
ERNST PATTERNChladni demonstrated once and for all that sound actually does affect physical matter .
That it has the quality of creating geometric patterns.
HANS JENNYCymatics is the name coined by Hans Jenny (1904-1972), a Swiss physician and natural scientist, to describe visible sound.
Considered the father of Cymatics, he laid the foundations for this emergent science.
HANS CODEHans Jenny also found that water could be shaped and exhibited an antigravity effect when vibrated by sound.
Since our bodies are mostly water, soundcan effectively restructure the cells in our bodies.
MASARO EMOTOA Japanese author and entrepreneur known for his claims that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.
Initially Dr. Emoto claimed that high-quality water forms beautiful and intricate crystals, while low-quality water has difficulty forming crystals.
MASARU CODEEmoto claims that positive changes to water crystals can be achieved through prayer, music and sound
or by attaching written words to a container of water.
DNA Activation and Shift Frequency
Our body has the capacity to not only emit light, but may also take up light from the environment. Some component in our body stores light energy, which is a proof that we nourish ourselves with a small percentage of light too, independently of the food which we eat.
Experiments conducted have proven that the light memory of our body is nothing else, but our DNA.
So what is DNA Activation?
Have you ever imagined yourself experiencing higher states of consciousness? Imagine constantly receiving guidance and knowledge from your Higher Self to rise above daily mental and emotional dramas. Imagine enjoying excellent health and experiencing a life full of vitality and energy. The truth is, you already have all these abilities within you, and right now they are probably in a dormant state. Activating your intuition to DNA Activation, helps you know exactly what your life’s purpose is. DNA Activation is the process that allows you to activate these abilities and lead a successful life. Your DNA is the blueprint of your life, what is inside all the cells that make up your body. Each DNA strand corresponds to a dimensional frequency band of consciousness.
In the year 1990 a group of scientists got together in Moscow, for whom the study of the human Genomes was related exclusively to biochemistry. Beside physicists of the renowned Lebedev Institute, they had molecular biologists, bio physicists and geneticists participate in this project which was led by Dr. Pjotr Garjajev, a bio physicist and molecular biologist and Director of the project.
In various experiments the Muscovites group could prove that light actually represents an important factor in the power supply of our hereditary molecule, the DNA. It provides healthy functioning of all procedures in our cells. However it cannot form a complete replacement for material food alone. In this way the genetic information of each cell can employ comparisons of their actual condition with a specified condition each time and arrange possibly necessary repairs. This can prevent or at least stop diseases such as Cancer or AIDS, could also, slow down the ageing process.
Shifting Frequencies is a science of how sound and other vibrational modalities, including light, sacred geometry and crystals, can be used for healing and self-transformation. Understanding these frequencies and adopting the correct pattern, forms part of the sound healing therapy.
Sound Healing is a therapeutic field rapidly making a place for itself and being acknowledged by modern medicine and science due to its effective applications.
The basic principle of Sound Healing is in the ‘resonance’ and the vibrations it creates. Every object is in a state of vibration and therefore creates sound. If parts of our body (organs, muscles, bones etc.) are vibrating at their normal, healthy frequency, we call this state ‘health’ and if a portion of our body is vibrating at a frequency which is not harmonious to us, we call it ‘disease’.
“We are living in extraordinary times. There are frequency shifts occurring on both personal and planetary levels. We can consciously affect our own vibratory patterns, and align with these energies for health and transformation. Shifting Frequencies provide a gateway into exploring and experiencing how to use our own sounds and other vibrational modalities for such purposes.”
BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT THERAPY: Separate point on menu
Achieve the mile stone of accomplished success with Brainwave Entrainment Therapy.
Rivesh Vade has developed a very powerful technology called ‘Power Brain’, which enables any one practising it to live a life of prosperity and well-being. This therapy is conducted using singing bowls as a medium to create the required sound vibrations. These special singing bowls are rare and designed to have faster healing effects and soothes the natural brain wave states through beats and tones.
The science behind Brainwave Entrainment Therapy is well researched. The brain wave sounds are carefully composed to give an effective and soothing effect when heard.
Within the ranges of each brainwave state, (Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta and Gamma), each state naturally vibrates at different frequencies. This simple, synchronized-brainwaves method, allows us to go into a higher potential of our brain, to bring forth any kind of change we want.
The therapy involves three major aspects:
- Binaural Beats: These beats will cause the brain to begin resonating in tune with that beat. By creating a binaural beat at 10 Hz — an Alpha frequency — you can trigger your brain to resonate at that same 10 Hz frequency, automatically inducing brain activity in the Alpha range.
- Isotonic tones: These tones provide stimulation. Isotonic tones are a very effective audio-based method of stimulating the brain.
- Singing bowls: Singing bowls produce sounds which invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one enter into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment.
A pioneer in using‘Singing Bowls’as part ofhis therapies, Rivesh Vade works extensivelywith them. He also records its healing frequencies to enable better results.
In Brainwave Entrainment Therapy, Binaural beats are created by synchronizing two tones by a small amount. It is a process where suitable brainwaves, subliminal messages, and natural sound waves are brought together to create a particular brainwave state. Whenever a certain frequency matches a particular brainwave state, it will entrain your brain into the same brainwave state within a minute. This is called synchronization. When you wear headphones, not only do you get into a particular brainwave state, you synchronize your left and right brain across the Corpus Callosum. Having your left and right brain synchronized is an ideal state — particularly for creativity or dealing with life.
With brainwave entrainment you are able to bring your brainwaves to a desirable frequency and in the process achieve a mental state that is associated with it. As you use any of your senses, this stimulates your brain, which emits an electrical charge in response to these stimuli.
Brainwave entrainment audio use technology based on scientific brain research, in order to guide your brain into a desired wave frequency and thus minimize conscious interference, allowing you to relax and let go of negative thinking.
This process is not difficult to master. It is a simple process of listening to tones, while your brainwaves naturally match the frequency associated with that particular sound.
There’s no training or special practice needed, you need just a little time for yourself with sufficient guidance and half hour of our Healing Frequencies.
Witness a magnificent change in your life.
