Sound Healing: The Power of Sound (Binaural Beats Meditation Included!)

Sound healing. The power of sound

By

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

In the beginning was the word and the word was God. The Hebrew translation for word can also been interpreted as sound. There are ancient mystics and sages who believe that the sound Aum or Om is the sound of creation. So, if the word of God was a sound, could that be the reason for this material creation?

Back in the 1960’s Swiss scientist Dr. Hans Jenny researched the Cymatic frequencies and how they influence physical form. His exploration of the effects of Cymatic frequencies on matter came up with some breathtaking results, and I have included the links at the end of this article. As Cymatics shows us, sound creates form and really does affect our physical condition in many ways. Sound also has the power to heal, and this is what I aim to explore with this article.


Jonathan Reid is another Cymatic researcher, who is a musician and a scientist. Jonathan was researching these Cymatic patterns within the walls of the Kings chamber inside the Great Pyramid. He was experiencing great back pain while conducting the experiments, and later realised that the pain had disappeared and never came back, and it was the culmination of the sound frequencies that healed his back. We do use sound for healing in hospitals today in the form of ultrasound, which is used to heal tissue, can decrease swelling and gives a gentle massage to the affected area. So we already use sound in today’s modern world for healing and health, but all the possibilities have not been explored as yet. Let us go back in history and see where this was used then.

Pythagoras and Sound Healing

Pythagoras has been credited as being the Father of Mathematics, Geometry and Music. Pythagoras was actually a sound healer. He worked out that music is mathematics and he would perform what he called ‘soul adjustments’ with this music. Pythagoras used intervals, including the Fibonacci series, as a medicine for the body and the emotions.

Sound healing. The power of sound - fibonacci sequence
The Fibonacci Sequence is evident in nature.

The Fibonacci series of numbers can be found everywhere in nature, and are looked upon as the building blocks of life. If we look at the scale of western music, a scale comprises of 8 notes, and the chord sequence of that note is the third and fifth note.

The Fibonacci series starts at the beginning, which is zero, and then the next number is 1. Add zero and one together and you get one. Add one to that and you get two. Add one to two and you get three. Add two and three and you get five. Add three and five and you get eight and it goes up like that. So the numbers go up like this 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233 and so on.

The Fibonacci series gives perfect balance in growth and movement, so therefore you get a balanced expansion. So now can you see that the first note, the third note, the fifth note and the octave (eighth note) is all part of the Fibonacci series in relation to a musical scale.

Tuning Your Chakras

Another researcher into Sound healing is Jonathan Goldman. He also has researched heavily into the use of sound by the ancients and has made many great discoveries. He also realised while working in an anechoic chamber that the nervous system has a sound, and that sound could be affected by tuning forks. Einstein spoke about the Universal Energy Field and explained that this is the only reality.

Sound Healing. The Power of Sound - Chakras

In modern life today we are being detuned from that field and we all need to find ways to tune us back up. Sound healing is a great way of doing this.

We have seven energy vortex points that run up the spine of the body, known in Eastern philosophies as the chakra system and these can all be opened and tuned by tuning folks. The tuning of the chakra system simply runs up the C scale in musical terms. C, D, E, F, G, A and B. C is the root chakra, D is the sacral chakra, E is the solar plexus chakra, F is the heart chakra, G is the throat chakra, A is the third eye chakra and B is the crown chakra.

Once you start to work with these chakras and sound, your reality starts to look different. I found this to be an amazing journey.

Binaural Beats and the Fibonacci Sequence

Another way to affect the human condition through sound is the use of binaural beats. Binaural beats are created by playing two different tones in each headphone, no less than 1 Hz and no more than 30 Hz, and the brain will process these two beats by filling in the difference between the two frequencies. If you have 400 Hz in one earpiece and 410 Hz in the other earpiece, you are creating a binaural beat of 10 Hz in your brain. The five cognitive states your brain operates in are Gamma (over 40 Hz), Beta (13 – 39 Hz), Alpha (7 – 13 Hz), Theta (4 – 7 Hz) and Delta (<4 Hz). As the frequencies decrease, cognitive focus and alertness decrease. You will start to move to more meditative states depending on what Binaural beat you are listening to.

Sound healing. The power of sound - Binaural Beats

I have been working with Dr. Tomasz Kopec, who is known for his research into Open Focus Theory, and we have come up with an exercise that is designed to help you get into a meditation state very easily. We have combined one of Tomasz’s exercises with music tuned to the relative chakra with a binaural beat placed in the background. So while being guided by the exercise, you will have the binaural beat also working to get you into the desired state, and some music to ease you through the gaps in the exercise. You may get it the first time, or it may take a few attempts, but you should feel refreshed and relaxed after the exercise.

The Schumann Pulse

We have four exercises in this series. The first exercise is just a general exercise and the binaural beat is based on the pulse of the earth, the Schumann pulse, which is 7.8 Hz. This is also the frequency of the Alpha state for the brain, which is wakeful relaxation. It is the desired frequency for rest and digest, which is a human state this modern world doesn’t seem to allow us to visit very much.

Here is a very simple exercise you can use daily for your body to get into that healing zone. The first exercise has been designed by Dr. Tomasz Kopec to diffuse your attention. The other three exercises are designed to go up the chakra system, so the second exercise is the sacral chakra, the third exercise is the heart chakra and the fourth exercise is the third eye chakra. These exercises with the relevant binaural beat and sounds used for the tuning of the chakra will enable you to open up the three most powerful chakras in your system and release the full potential of you as a human being.

Our world is becoming more and more obsessed with the physical body. We are being dragged into this material world by the meme we live in, and by choosing to wake up your energy body, you will be making a great change for yourself. You will start to wake up the senses, see the mad world for what it is and start to realise that you need to wake up, pay attention and do something about changing yourself, and changing the world around you. More and more people are starting to take these steps, and the results are wonderful to see. Here is the link to the first free exercise below.

Change Your Energy

Our energy body, or you may have heard of it as a “light body”, can carry the physical body. Indeed it does especially in the Western world with our bad diet, additions and habits. When you begin to wake up to your energy or light body, you understand that if you want to work at an optimum, these two bodies should work in tandem with each other. So both of these bodies need good fuel, exercise and the proper rest to work properly. Our exercises will help you to rest and you may not notice the change in you at first, but, with time, I am sure you will start to feel the difference.

This world is a wonder and if we all start to experience it from that understanding, then things will change automatically for the better. We all need love. We all want to avoid suffering. We all want a better world. So rather than staying in systems that do not serve humanity as a whole, let us rid the ones that no longer work that are being controlled from the shadows, and make the ones stronger that do.

Sound Healing. The Power of Sound.

The first steps are easy really. Choose love or choose fear. We believe these exercises will help you make steps to find the real you inside, where you can now start to build the life you want, and then start to help others build the life they want around you. So what is good for me is good for you. It is a very simple principle in theory, so why not put it into practice?

The time is now and a new world is waiting for us when we reach the numbers to make the true change this world is crying out for. Turn on, tune in and chill out. Yeah!!!!!!

Diffusing Your Attention with Music

This exercise will let you experience what happens when you diffuse your attention. I hope you will realise that many types of meditation and relaxation techniques are based on simply changing your attention style from focusing to diffusing. Once you know how to do it you can get into the ‘zone’ a lot quicker.

Anahata, Earth Echoes

Peter Paul Parker - Anahata, Earth EchoesIn addition to his work with the Ministry of Health, seeker, activist and writer Peter Paul Parker is also an accomplished musician. His album ‘Anahata, Earth Echoes’ is available on the label New World Music. Anahata is the fourth chakra at the center of the luminous auric body, and is considered a gateway to higher consciousness.

In creating ‘Anahata, Earth Echoes’, Peter was inspired by learning about the chakras and experiencing the togetherness of ancient tribes like the Aborigines, the Fijians and the Native Americans he met travelling around the world as a child. The first seven tracks are tuned to the seven chakras, from the base to the seventh chakra, to help you meditate on your chakras — Peter’s small way of helping to raise the vibrations on our planet.

    Binaural beats only work if you are wearing headphones…You need discrete channels for each ear or else you will not get the beating effect.

  • Wendy Kisicki

    I don’t know enough about binaural beats, but matter and form are greatly affected by vibration, regardless of whether it is “heard”. Flowers do not have “ears” 🙂 You are not screwed because of your deaf ear, as there are many ways for the body to experience the healing benefits of vibration.
