‘Myths in many cultures speak of the universe having been created by way of sound….in the Ancient Mystery Schools of Egypt, Rome, Greece, Tibet, India and other centres of learning, knowledge of sound was a highly refined science based upon an understanding of vibration as the primary causative form of the universe.’
‘It is also important to understand that, in alignment with this concept of sound, every organ, bone and tissue in your body has its own separate resonant frequency. Together they make up a composite frequency, a harmonic that is your own personal vibratory rate …. When we are in a state of health, the entire orchestra is playing together. However, when disease sets in it is as though a player – the second violin for example – has lost its sheet music and begins to play in the wrong key and the wrong rhythm. ‘ Jonathan Goldman in Healing Sounds.
Interestingly, biochemists are using the frequency 528Hz to repair human DNA, a C note.
“Regular “C” vibrates to a frequency of only 512 Hz … the “C” of 528 Hz used in DNA repair had been a part of an ancient scale of six notes called the Solfeggio Scale.” In ancient times different tuning methods were used as opposed to those in used in modern times. This information was ‘lost’.
Ancient tuning practices used a system called Just Intonation. During the 16 – 18th centuries tuning practice changed to Twelve-Tone Equal Temperament. This rigid practice, according to David B Doty, author of The Just Intonation Primer, placed music in a ‘box of limitations’. Just Intonation was used by classical musicians the likes of Beethoven, Hayden and others.
“As we look at the six original Solfeggio frequencies, using the Pythagorean method, we find the base or root vibrational numbers are 3,6, & 9. Nikola Tesla tells us …. “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”
John Keely, an expert in electromagnetic technologies, wrote that the vibrations of “thirds, sixths, and ninths, were extraordinarily powerful.” In fact, he proved the “vibratory antagonistic thirds was thousands of times more forceful in separating hydrogen from oxygen in water than heat.” In his “Formula of Aqueous Disintegration” he wrote that, “molecular dissociation or disintegration of both simple and compound elements, whether gaseous or solid, a stream of vibratory antagonistic thirds, sixths, or ninths, on their chord mass will compel progressive subdivisions. In the disintegration of water the instrument is set on thirds, sixths, and ninths, to get the best effects.”
The original sounds, rediscovered by Dr Joseph Puleo, were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great Hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago.
“Although it is difficult to describe the special qualities of Just Intonation intervals to those who have never heard them, words such as clarity, purity, smoothness, and stability come readily to mind. The supposedly consonant intervals and chords of (12-Tone) Equal Temperament, which deviate from simple rations to varying degrees, sound rough, restless, or muddy in comparison.”
The famous physicist Sir Isaac Newton associated the seven colours of the rainbow with the solfeggio frequencies thus –
- Red – 396 Hz
- Orange – 417 Hz
- Gold – 528 Hz
- Green – 639 Hz
- Blue – 741 Hz
- Indigo – 852 Hz
7. Purple – 963 Hz
Interestingly, these colours and frequencies correspond directly with those assigned to the seven major chakras of our body. Each tone contains the exact frequency required to balance our energy, and the sound of each frequency reinforces the balance required by each chakra to maintain perfect energetic balance. Solfeggio frequencies are a cyclic variation of the numbers 369, 147 and 258. It is claimed that each frequency has specific spiritual and physical healing properties.
