Sound Therapy: An Amazing Tool To Change Your State Of Mind & Enhance Well-being

Sound Therapy: An Amazing Tool To Change Your State Of Mind & Enhance Well-being 86

by Amie Moses

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. ― Nikola Tesla

Using sound to heal the body and relax the mind is nothing new; in fact it goes back to the beginning of time, but some of the most interesting ways to achieve this are by using Solfeggio frequencies, isochronic and binaural tones. You may be well aware of these already, but if you are not, you HAVE to give them a try. I recently added these “sound therapies” to my daily routine and I am amazed at the change I have experienced in my over-all state of mind and well-being. Even more amazing, is the fact that I “felt” a positive change in only a matter of minutes. I had to find out just how and why these sounds do what they do and share my findings with others.

 

The Law of Vibration

This law of nature states that everything moves, everything vibrates, and nothing rests. These vibrations may be lower (slower vibration) or higher (faster vibrations). These vibrational energy levels are known as “frequencies” and are measured in Hertz (Hz). A Hertz is equal to ONE vibrational cycle per second.

I won’t go too deep into a physics lessons here, but it’s interesting to note that Dr. Colin W.F. McClare (Bio-Physicist), discovered that frequencies of vibrating energy are roughly 100 times more efficient in relaying information within a biological system than physical signals, such as hormones, neurotransmitters and other growth factors (Lipton 2008). That would explain how different frequencies can impact our moods and emotions and the moods and emotions of those around us. It is believed that feeling of sadness, anger, fear, and dread for example have a low frequency while feelings, of love, happiness, gratitude, etc. have a high frequency.

 

Solfeggio Frequencies

Everyone today can easily recognize the 7 note scale assigned to the syllables Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti, but the ancient version was a 6 note scale assigned to the ascending syllables Ut-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La. This is the ancient Solfeggio Scale. This ancient 6 note scale was created by Benedictine monk, Guido d’Arezzo (991 AD – 1050 AD). The scale was used as a teaching tool to help others learn chants and songs easier. Each tone in the scale produces a specific frequency; these frequencies have been discovered to have very specific impacts on the body.

According to information gathered from Attuned Vibrations:

UT- 396 Hz = turning grief into joy, liberating guilt & fear: searches out hidden blockages, subconscious negative beliefs, and ideas that have led to your present situations.

RE- 417 Hz = undoing situations and facilitating change: puts you in touch with an inexhaustible source of energy that allows you to change your life.

MI- 528 Hz = transformation and miracles (DNA repair): increased amount of life energy, clarity of mind, awareness, awakened or activated creativity, ecstatic states like deep inner peace, dance and celebration. Also, activates your imagination, intention and intuition to operate for your highest and best purpose.

FA- 639 Hz = re-connecting and balancing, relationships: enhances communication, understanding, tolerance and love.

Sol- 741 Hz = solving problems, expressions/solutions: leads to a healthier, simpler life, and also to changes in diet. Also, leads you into the power of self-expression, which results in a pure and stable life.

LA- 852 Hz = awakening intuition, returning to spiritual order: ability to see through the illusions of your life, such as hidden agendas of people, places and things. Opens a person up for communication with the all-embracing Spirit and raises awareness and lets you return to spiritual order. In addition to the original 6 above, 3 other tones have been shown to have healing properties. Together the 9 make up the, Solfeggio frequencies.

SI- 963 Hz = awakens any system to its original, perfect state: enables direct experience, the return to Oneness.

174 Hz = natural anesthetic: reduce pain physically and energetically.

285 Hz = helps return tissue into its original form: influences energy fields, sending them a message to restructure damaged organs. It also leaves your body rejuvenated and energized.

 

Isochronic & Binaural Tones

Referred to as “brainwave entrainment,” these tones and beats are distinctive sound pulses that are often combined with soothing sounds or music. They have a direct impact on your brain activity changing the frequency of your brainwaves, so you can train your brain to enter various mental states and levels of consciousness. These states are similar to what the brain experiences during meditation and can have similar benefits on the body. The magic of isochronic and binaural beats/tones is that they target and work on various brainwave frequencies to achieve various impacts on the body.

Beta brain waves – 12 Hz to 30 Hz = help regulate and stabilize your normal waking awareness. Entrainment of your beta waves may also be used to increase your ability to concentrate and may even improve your IQ.

Alpha brain waves – 8 Hz to 12 Hz = states of relaxation, enhances creativity, mental clarity, and the brain is more receptive to information. Alpha is great for stress relief and relaxation.

Theta brain waves – 4 Hz to 7 Hz = state of deep meditation/relaxation: improved concentration, major reductions in stress and improved memory retention. Blood pressure, breathing and heart rate will all slow to a much more restful and healthy level that promotes natural healing.

Delta brain waves – 0.1 Hz to 4 Hz = deepest state of complete relaxation: dreamless, completely unconscious sleep state that allows your body and brain to rest and repair. This is the most effective way to encourage your mind to release itself from an overactive waking state and enter into a sleep state.

music-characterBinaural tones play slightly different frequencies in each ear so headphones are a must for them to work! With isochronic tones, the ears receive the same simple pulse of sound, so headphones aren’t required, but they can enhance the experience.

The brain needs about 7 full minutes for these tones to start to work, but to get and feel the benefits; at least 15-30 minutes are recommended. With these tones it is wise to note that you should only listen to them when you have time to relax or meditate. Do not listen while driving a car or operating machinery. Certain people, those that are affected by seizures or other similar health conditions, shouldn’t listen to these tones.

These sound therapies can be an excellent tool for those who are beginning meditation practices or by anyone who wants to add to their daily well-being rituals. No matter what your goal is, the above are great ways to relax and improve your mood fast! Be well!

Psilocybin mushrooms sprout in the blood of an ‘experimental’ patient

Psilocybin mushrooms sprout in the blood of an 'experimental' patient 91

US doctors described the story of a man who tried to relieve depression with psilocybin mushrooms in an unconventional way. He injected an intravenous infusion of mushrooms, causing the mushrooms to continue to multiply in his blood and cause multiple organ failure. The case was reported in the Journal of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.

Many drugs that people traditionally use as psychedelics are increasingly becoming the focus of medical attention. Some of them have already been repurposed and started clinical trials: for example, micro-doses of LSD have proven to be at least safe in the case of Alzheimer’s disease, and psilocybin has helped patients with  migraines and  depression. Often in such experiments we are talking about microdosing – that is, the mass of the substance is not enough for a psychoactive effect.

The story of an American who decided to experiment on his own was described by doctors led by Curtis McKnight of Creighton University School of Medicine. According to relatives, the 30-year-old American suffered from bipolar disorder, but shortly before the incident stopped taking his prescribed medications and suffered from alternating states of mania and depression.

When he stumbled upon research on the potential benefits of psychedelics, he boiled psilocybin mushrooms and injected the filtered solution into his vein. A few days after this experiment, relatives found him in a lethargic state with jaundice, diarrhea and bloody vomiting and took him to the hospital.

Doctors discovered the patient had a problem with multiple organs at once: acute renal failure, liver damage, tachycardia, and low blood saturation and ionic imbalance. He was prescribed droppers to normalize the composition of the blood, vasoconstrictors to raise blood pressure, antibiotics and antifungal drugs. Despite this, he developed septic shock and DIC (excessive blood clotting) and needed plasmapheresis. Only eight days later he was discharged from the intensive care unit, and at the time of publication of the article he had already been in the hospital for 22 days.

In the patient’s blood tests, in addition to the Brevibacillus bacteria , there were also Psilocybe cubensis fungi  – the same ones from which he injected himself intravenously. Apparently, due to insufficient filtration of the solution, the fungi entered the bloodstream and multiplied there, causing intoxication and multiple organ failure.

The authors of the work note that this is not the first such case – at least in the 80s of the 20th century, doctors already described a patient with similar symptoms after an intravenous injection. Therefore, McKnight and coauthors warn their colleagues: since psychedelics are increasingly used as a medicine (at the end of 2020, they began to legalize it in the United States), it is important to remind patients of the inadmissibility of self-therapy. Intravenous administration can be dangerous – doctors still do not know if it has the same psychoactive effect as the classical methods of administration.

A part of a person’s essence accompanies him throughout his life: this is confirmed by a brain scan

A part of a person's essence accompanies him throughout his life: this is confirmed by a brain scan 93

A new method of scanning the human brain has produced amazing results. It turns out that in every person there is a certain part of his essence, which accompanies him all his life from the moment of birth to death.

Scientists believe that this is the core of a person’s self-awareness. It combines memories of the past with fleeting sensations of reality and provides a basis for anticipation of events in the future.

It turned out that a certain part of a person’s consciousness is consistent as they grow older and older.

For centuries, scientists and philosophers have been interested in the question: can this sense of “personal self” be stable throughout life? A new psychological study with the results of a brain scan made it possible to conclude that a certain part of a person’s consciousness really accompanies him throughout his life.

It is consistent as it gets older and older. Miguel Rubianes, a neuroscientist at the Complutense University of Madrid, says the aim of the study was to answer the question: Are we the same person throughout life? In combination with the results of other studies, scientists have concluded that there is a certain component that remains stable from birth to death.

The other part of consciousness remains susceptible to current changes. The scientists recognized independence as the basis of identity. And every time a person uses the word “I”, he means a thread that connects together all the events and experiences that have occurred in life.

Experience gained over the years changes a person, changes the components of his identity. Each case associated with personal experiences, a broken heart, a successful career step, expected or unexpected failure lead to the fact that a person compares himself to himself before and after these events. It is a neurological programming scheme that involves visual self-knowledge as an indicator of connection with your impressions of yourself.

This effect makes it possible to cope with memories and recognition of information when it is associated, for example, with one’s own photograph of an infant. Although this principle has a lot of evidence, scientists believe that the very mechanism of the brain involved in this remains a mystery.

This study was published in the journal Psychophysiology.
