WHY SOUND?

Sound makes us aware of the more subtle aspects of our every day life, of the invisible, or what is beyond our regular sense modality. Listening is time based, and so naturally it is vehicle for conscious awareness to each present moment as it arises. Through immersive deep listening, we can feel into our bodies and our environment as one space, anchoring us to the awareness we access through other meditative or mindful practices. Almost like a form of respiration, each oscillation tunes us in with felt experience, this embodied way of knowing. 

AS MEDITATION

The act of listening can give our mind a focal point so that we don’t become attached to the swirling movement of thoughts. In this way, it can help us to access deeper states of awareness in preparation for meditation. 

Neurons in our brain synchronise to sound waves through brainwave entrainment, activating healing theta states. In this way healing frequencies regulate brain waves to support neuroplasticity, higher performance and better health.

AS PHYSICAL HEALING

Our bodies are very conductive of sound; we pick up both audible and inaudible sound all the way down to a cellular level. Sound supports the body’s innate capacity to heal itself through the principle of prime resonance: Every object has it’s own natural resonant frequency, including organs and systems in the body. Re-harmonising frequencies support cells to awaken and resume their optimal resonant frequency by opening up ion channels within cellular membranes. This channel is crucial for communication and nourishment between neighbouring cells.

As a summary: When we are ill, the body’s natural order of frequencies is altered, but when we are exposed to certain external vibrations, the optimal state of internal rhythms can be restored.

"...The aural experience not only allow us to hear, it also affects nearly all the cranial nerves, in particular the tenth cranical nerve. This nerve affects the larynx, the bronchi, the heart, and the gastrointestinal tract. Thus sounds affect our voice, breathing, heart rate and digestion." - Chakra Frequencies, Jonathan Goldman
