We already know that sound has a big impact upon us, because we each have favourite songs or genres of music, and we each have sounds that make us feel uncomfortable. Indeed, the entire universe is actually made up of soundwaves, vibrations and frequencies that we aren’t even aware of.
All sounds are waves and are produced by the vibrations of material objects. If you clap your hands together, this creates a vibration and thus soundwaves and frequencies. If you strum a guitar, the vibration of the strings sends out waves, heard as frequencies. These vibrations are transmitted through air, or they move through other mediums such as solid, liquid, gas or plasma. When vibrations reach the ear, they are converted to electrical impulses in the brain, which we interpret as sound. Lower frequency sound vibrations can also be felt by the body.
NASSA have uncovered soundwaves in space too, known as stellar sound waves, with a technique called asteroidseismology. They say that; “The biggest stars make the lowest, deepest sounds, like tubas and double basses. Small stars have high-pitched voices, like celestial flutes. These virtuosos don’t just play one “note” at a time, either — our own Sun has thousands of different sound waves bouncing around inside it at any given moment”. The universe is literally made of sound, and we benefit when we start using sound on a therapeutic level.
Our Vibrating Planet
Everything we can see and touch (i.e. every material object in nature or man-made) is made of vibrational frequencies. Matter is vibration, and the quality of that matter – solid, liquid or gas – depends upon the frequency its vibrating at. Everything has an impact upon frequency, including size. As the mass of a vibrating body increases, its frequency decreases, but as the tensionincreases the frequency also increases, thus balancing the body’s vibrational sound frequencies. The earth has a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 hz (humans can hear between 20hz and 20,000hz). Note: ‘hz’ means the number of repeating vibrations that occur within a second.
Autoimmune disease specialist Christina Sessmus says; “Humans have an optimal frequency–as does everything else in the universe–that occurs when each of the cells in our body vibrates at the frequency it was designed to. Bruce Tainio, famous researcher and developer of Tainio Technology, found that a healthy body resonates at a frequency of 62-72 MHz, (MHz takes 1 ‘hz’ and multiplies it by a million) and when your frequency drops to 58 MHz, that is when disease starts. Bacteria, viruses, and disease each have their own, low frequency that influence your energy field”. As your frequency drops due to environmental and physiological factors, your immune system is compromised and opportunistic bacteria and viruses are able to wreak havoc on your body–making you more susceptible to disease. Trapped emotions stored in our organs, muscles and tissues as pockets of electromagnetic energy also have a negative influence our wellbeing. Disharmony and imbalance in the body’s energy field shows up long before it becomes a physical problem.” The lower the body’s frequency, the less healthy the body becomes.
Raise Your Vibration
As we know, holistic health and healing isn’t just about working with the physical body, it’s about working with every aspect of life. Our vibrational frequencies are what we might call ‘energy’, ‘prana’ or ‘qi’, and everything we do or come into contact with can affect our energy and vibrational frequency.
What Decreases Your Vibration?
Intuitively, you’ll be able to feel when you’re vibrating at a lower or dissonant frequency. To put it simply; stress lowers the body’s vibrational frequency, and relaxation raises it. The following things are likely to lower the body’s vibrational frequency and decrease wellbeing:
- Toxins in the environment
- Processed food
- Foods that are heavy and greasy, or that you cannot digest well
- ‘Toxic’ relationships
- Too much time indoors
- Traumatic Memories
- Negative Thinking
- Noise or a general ‘hum’ from construction work or traffic that causes discomfort
What Increases Your Vibration?
The more we look at high-vibrational experiences and objects, the more it becomes clear that mostly, the things we enjoy and that genuinely fill us with positive ‘vibrations will help maintain a healthy and harmonious frequency.
- Chanting and toning
- Listening to music you enjoy, or specific binaural beats / frequencies
- Organic and unprocessed foods
- High grade essential oils
- Spending time with people you feel safe, happy and comfortable with
- Enjoyable exercise
- Pranayama (breathwork)
- Meditation and positive visualisation
- Using and being around crystals (specifically clear quartz, watermelon tourmaline, jade, selenite, celestite, shungite, hematite,
- Using organic herbs in cooking
- Earthing and going barefoot
If you want to start making more positive life changes, begin paying more attention to the sounds around you and consider how they make you feel: do you often spend time in a room that has a constant low humming sound or a high pitched note? How does that make you feel, and how do you think it could be impacting your vibration? Perhaps start listening to sounds and songs that uplift or relax you, or focussing on reducing the amount of ‘low vibration’ things you’re exposed to and including more ‘high vibration’ activities in your life.
