Sound heals. Mothers know this instinctively, murmuring reassuringly or singing a lullaby to their crying babies. When we’re not feeling well, sometimes, all we need to hear is the soothing voice of a loved one or trusted healer, and we begin to feel better. Or we gain the extra strength our body can use to complete its work in naturally healing a condition.
Sound heals when used scientifically in mantra or prayer. Much writing and research has been done on the power of prayer, even in it’s silent vibratory power.
Sound heals also when applied specifically though music, song or bells, or even Tibetan singing bowls.
When used during healing sessions, these sound modalities can have a profound impact in bringing relief or other resolution to a spiritual or other concern. Harp music, for example, has long been known for its healing properties.
Research supports evidence of how sound heals.
You may have seen the power of crystal water that captures evidence of how sound heals in photos by Masaru Emoto. I recommend his recent book, The True Power of Water, for a look at how we effect water. The film, What the Bleep, mentioned Emoto’s work and helped popularize it (I’ve posted that excerpt after some rare film clips on sound healing, below).
Emoto provides evidence from his research on the unique properties of water and its ability to improve your health and your life. His film, The Hidden Messages in Water, is due out next month on DVD. You can pre-order it.
Cymatics: science that shows how sound heals and creates
But water is not the only structure effected by vibration, and Emoto’s work was preceded by the research that formed the basis of a new science last century, cymatics, which was founded by physician and natural scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny. His original research opened the way for the world to accept the validity of sound healing, and inspired other scientists to experiment with how vibration changes form at atomic or sub-atomic levels of creation.
Jenny is considered the father of cymatics, which is the study of wave phenomena. His book, Cymatics, will help anyone interested in finding the deeper connection between physical and non-physical or spiritual forms. If you are serious in your study on how sound heals, I recommend that you also get Water Sound Images by Alexander Lauterwasser.
Take a look at this rare Hans Jenny video, below (posted at Youtube by Billy Carson of 4biddenknowledge).
I’ve also posted a clip on Emoto’s water crystal research, below (also courtesy of Billy Carson’s 4biddenknowledge channel at Youtube).:
I have been experimenting with Emoto’s ideas by treating my drinking water with intention. The glass container I use to hold my drinking water has a piece of paper taped to it on which I’ve written my most important life intentions.
Many times I state the intentions out loud to myself before I pour the day’s fresh water into my container. I always feel more connected with my life purpose and have had some remarkably healing experiences since I’ve begun that practice
