The German philosopher Novalis said: "Every
illness is a musical problem. The healing, therefore, is a musical resolution.
The shorter the resolution, the greater the musical talent of the doctor."
Rudolph Steiner said:" There will come a time
when a diseased condition will not be described as it is today by physicians
and psychologists, but will be spoken of in musical terms, as one would
speak of a piano that was out of tune."
In 1665, a Dutch scientist, Christian Huygens 'discovered'
the principle of "entrainment".
Entrainment is the ability of
powerful rhythmic vibrations from one source to cause the less powerful
vibrations of another source to lock into step and oscillate at the
rate of the first source.
Itzhak Bentor illustrates this phenomenon in his
book, Stalking the Wild Pendulum. He left a room full of grandfather
clocks with pendulums all swinging at different rates. Twenty four hours
later he returned to the room to find that the pendulums were now all
Entrainment explains how sound
healing works. A harmonious sound projected at a person who is in a
state of disharmony will eventually bring them into resonance with the
original sound. If a part of our body is out of balance we can retune
it like tuning a piano. This is precisely what we do to the human body.
Jonathan Goldman in his book 'Healing Sounds
- The Power of Harmonics' says: - "When we have learned techniques
for harmonic toning, the human voice is able to create nearly every
frequency, at least within the bandwidth of audible frequency."
Jonathan offers the simple formula: - "Frequency
plus Intention equals Healing". If we can find the right sound
frequency coupled with the right intention then healing will occur.
AN EXAMPLE OF HOW SOUND WORKS:
Everything is vibrating. All is vibration. What IS vibrating? It is energy – life – God etc.
528 Hz is the sound vibration of nature of life itself. 18htz is a lion’s roar and also raw fear.
Sound is described in frequency, intensity and loudness.
The Frequency is the number of vibrations per second.
The Intensity is the physical concentration of power in the sounds.
Loudness, is how loud the sound is to us, and is measured in decibels. e.g: human speech is 60 dec. An orchestra playing in a concert hall is 100dec. The energy generated by sound is given in watts, like electricity. So the orchestra would be around 25watts.
The biggest sound on earth is a rocket taking off, which is over 190 dec. The power/intensity of the Apollo rocket sound waves was on hundred million watts.
It’s the intensity of sound that can change the molecular structure of anything. Intensity is one of the main ways that sound gets it’s power.
Eleven thousand Hz is the frequency that will smash a glass that is the same frequency. Frequencies gives the sound it’s character.
Audible frequencies – the ear can cope with about 20 vibrations a second to 20thousand – beyond that the sound is still there, but you can’t hear it. 500 vibes. Per second is most speech.
Where sound is inaudible, we get Ultra-Sound. The Sound waves travel through a material until they change the nature of the material - the energy is reflected on the way back, down the material, and at that point the energy
becomes much heavier. This is how energy waves can build up an image – for instance, an ultra-sound image of a baby in the womb.
At the other end of the Ultra-sonic intensity range of the power of sound, is welding. Here, 2 substances are vibrated together and they become very hot and melt at the point of contact, exactly where we want them to stick together.
Ultrasound can heat, shake, weld, cut even clump particles together, using the ability of sound to make things stick together. The great thing about sound is that it can re-shape things.
When certain frequencies are focussed on a a particular diseased area – say a gall-stone, sound can shatter it, by generating small bubbles around the stone which can react together violently and shatter pieces off the stone gradually until it completely explodes.
Sound waves passing through a liquid can make these bubbles expand and contract in a process called: cavitation. Sometimes if the sound intensity is high enough, the bubbles can collapse completely and all of the implosion energy get’s concentrated in a very small region of the centre – this leads to very high temperatures – perhaps 1000 atmospheres and thousands of degrees of temperature – this can eat away even tough metal surfaces, so this is how a gall-stone can be shattered.
