In spiritual cultivation, we are no stranger to voice healing. Voice healing is one of the oldest forms of healing known to human. We now realize how much power sound can be used for healing. This article explains why sound is so healing to us, a discussion of the principles of sound healing – resonance, entrainment and intention, the healing power of sound, harmonic and interval music, chanting and rhythm. Scientific research is reviewed on sound healing and how sound affects the cells in our body. This article highlights the unique healing power inherent in our voices.
When we sing, we are resonating with every cell in our body. Sound healing offers us all possible drug-free ways to treat pain and illness as well as a way of conforming ourself to the Divine. Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body / mind with intention brings us into a state of harmony and health. Voice healing can be transmitted to people in a number of ways:
- By using our own voice
- Through the use of our voice and with other voices
- By using your own voice when listening to music
- By listening to the voice of another person or a number of voices
- Through listening to an instrument or instrument
- By listening to music or sound through the loudspeaker or through headphones.
How does sound healing work? Every organism has its own vibrational level. Every object in the universe has its own unique resonance. When we tap the wine glass it will make a ringing sound which is determined by the size, shape and thickness. When an opera singer shakes the glass with his voice, the singer matches his voice to the 2 resonant frequencies of the glass and sets them into vibrations. When the singer increases the volume sound the resonance may become too great for the force holding the glass together and the glass breaking. Fortunately, our bodies are more flexible than glass!
Our body cells enjoy sound vibrations. Resonance is easily indicated when one ‘C’ tuning fork is hit and is placed next to another ‘C’ tuning fork. The second tuning fork will start to resonate together with the first tuning fork. The sound of the waves from the first tuning fork has given some of its energy to the second. If the tuning fork that was struck is placed on a metal, glass, or wood object, it will start vibrating. A simple experiment can be carried out by placing a tuning fork over a person’s head. We will find that bones are excellent conductors of sound. Sound in the air travels at a speed of 340 meters per second (760 miles per hour). In the sound of water moving at 1,500 meters per second (3,350 miles per hour). In the sound of glass moving at a speed of 5,600 meters per second (12,500 miles per hour).
The human body is made up of 70% water; this makes it an excellent conductor of sound. Modern medicine now uses sound waves to break down the kidneys and gallstones in the body. The machine used is called a Lithotripter. This machine bombards the rock with a specific sound frequency for one to two hours. The patient is admitted in the morning and discharged at night. Generally, anesthesia is not needed. In most patients, only one treatment is needed to solve a kidney stone. The crushed stone is removed from the body in urine.
Every organ, every bone, every cell in the body has its own resonant frequency. Together they make a composite frequency like an orchestral instrument. When one of the organs in the body comes out the song affects the whole body. Through the principle of resonance, sound can be used to bring the body back into harmony, avoiding the need for drugs or surgery. It is a testament to how great of every inch of our body is. In the future, it seems that we will gain access to safer and healthier healing through sound healing.
