Ancient Sounds - Modern Healing

New Insights in Sound Healing from Modern Masters

by Jill Mattson


Sound Healing is a healing discipline growing rapidly in popularity, however, many of the principles that are new to us have been around since ancient times. The early Egyptians knew of the power of sound. Ancient Egyptian tombs and chambers were designed using the mathematics of ancient musical scales and ratios. The most common dimensional proportions found in Egyptian temples correspond to harmonious musical intervals. There are reports that some rooms in Egyptian tombs will reverberate wondrously when certain music is played in these rooms. Every stone and block in the tomb chamber plays back the music in an astonishing way. In the Egyptian temple of Denderah, there are many drawings of musicians. Hieroglyphics on the wall read "The sky and its stars are singing in you". Many ancient scholars and scientists have concluded that music is embedded in the very fabric of the planets and heavens. Indeed the singing of the cosmos reveals the deeper unity and oneness of all creation, all vibration!

Widely diverse theories on the nature of our universe agree in one intriguing aspect - everything in nature has a vibrational component. Masters and visionaries throughout time share the basic tenet that at the most fundamental level, all inanimate matter and all living systems are particle and wave (matter and energy).

Researchers into the body’s subtle-energy systems speak of the intricate marriage of matter and energy. A powerful picture is emerging that paints the human organism as a complex of interacting subtle-energy systems. Creative healers have found that sound waves can be used to adjust the subtle-energy fields producing a myriad of related benefits.

This phenomena, aka Sound Healing or Vibrational Medicine, sometimes referred to as Human BioAcoustics, is probably the most exciting new frontier in Alternative Healing. Sound is being successfully employed to: remedy many physical ailments, expand consciousness, enhance intelligence and provide soothing calm for emotional and spiritual needs.

Sharry Edwards

Sharry Edward’s life and work reveal that special nano frequencies can be detected within our voices and emanating from our bodies. These minute sounds give clues to our physical and mental states of being. It is widely believed these sounds indicate whether the body’s subtle-energy forces are in proper balance or out-of-harmony. Sharry discovered that by carefully applying the appropriate frequencies, harmony is restored to the subtle-energy systems; the corresponding optimum spiritual and mental states are also created to empower healing and growth.

Edwards innately recognized that specific sounds correlated to certain physical problems. She was born blessed with an extraordinary sense of hearing which was greatly enhanced after a near death experience. This remarkable sense of hearing was responsible for Sharry’s first encounters with the enormous potential of sound. She first experimented creating harmonizing tones with her voice to alleviate the discordant sounds she perceived in people. She developed the ability to produce extraordinary sine wave sound frequencies with her voice alone. In vastly diverse examples Sharry was able to help people suffering from glaucoma, emphysema and traumatic muscular-skeleton injuries.

Dr. Alfred Tomatis

Dr. Alfred Tomatis was a French ear, nose and throat specialist. He became interested in the role of "active listening" as it related to human development and healing. Tomatis’ work showed that there is a critical distinction between "hearing" and "listening". Tomatis invented the "electronic ear" to enable us to hear "missing" frequencies due compromised or damaged ear cilia. Sometimes ear cilia were injured or lacking due to physical or emotional injuries. The use of this electronic ear strengthened or even regenerated ear cilia.

Similar to Edwards above, Tomatis believed that the voice is critical in providing optimum health and wellbeing in the brain, body and consciousness of each of us. A full, healthy voice is only possible with a healthy sense of hearing. According to this work the voice plays a key part in self-healing. Tomatis has also developed an elaborate program to rehabilitate our listening capabilities and heal the connected emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs and faculties.

Robert Monroe

Robert Monroe (1915 – 1995) was another pioneer in the use of special sound frequencies. Monroe was an insatiably curious man who began his work experimenting with how people could learn while they were sleeping. This experience introduced him to the power that certain sound frequencies exhibited; appropriate frequencies would put people into a deep delta brain wave sleep.

Monroe tried new frequencies on himself - to often amazing results. He was able to achieve out-of-body experiences when listening to certain frequencies. Monroe wrote his first of three books, Journey Out of Body, documenting in great detail his OB experiences and efforts to validate his observations. Ultimately Monroe’s life’s work produced the Hemi-Sync Process TM.

Monroe’s Hemi-Sync Process TM is a sound experience designed to provide the listener with a combination of frequencies that produce a desired state of consciousness; Hemi-Sync produces brain wave states which foster self awareness and enhance self-knowing and reconnection. Hemi-Sync produces positive resonance in the brain; the related vibrating patterns of the brain produce brainwaves associated with certain states of consciousness. In this way listeners enjoy states of consciousness – such as deep meditation which they may not otherwise be able to achieve.

David Hulse

David Hulse, founder of SomaEnergetics TM , feels that all matter is slowed-down vibration and that subatomic particles are not made of material stuff. He believes that music is the key to unlock the universe. Hulse has studied the Solfeggio scale from Horowitz and Puleo’s Healing Codes for Biological Apocalypse for enlightenment. This book reveals a special pattern of numbers encoded in the Biblical Numbers 7:12 – 89. Once converted into frequencies this pattern has demonstrated powerful healing qualities.

Hulse has produced specialized tuning forks to exactly reproduce the ancient Solfeggio tones. These tuning forks are the basis for the SomaEnergetics TM techniques to balance and restore our energies. Hulse has closely mapped the body and he is able to detect and correct dissonances that clients claim change their lives. Hulse’s SomaEnergetics TM can bring about profound emotional and spiritual healing to a person as well as conventional physical improvements.
