The sound of music can have a beneficial effect as discussed previously in Sound of Silence II. It is suggested by Joachim Ernst-Berendt and others that modern tuning methods ‘twelve-tone equal temperament’ adopted by western cultures from about the 16th century mistunes all consonant intervals except the octave. This it is suggested leads to emotional effects such as fear, suppressed emotions, resulting in dis-ease.
Nikola Tesla, the great genius and father of electromagnetic engineering, had once said, “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe”. The 3, 6, and 9 are the fundamental root vibrations of the Solfeggio frequencies.
Albert Einstein stated: “Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” All matter beings vibrate at specific rates and everything has its own melody. The musical nature of nuclear matter from atoms to galaxies is now finally being recognized by science.
It is said that Solfeggio music, an ancient tuning method, overcomes these discordances and promotes a dialogue with the body and soul restructuring emotional discordance promoting better health, more peaceful approaches to the problems of life and quality rest and sleep time. The ancient six-tone scale is thought to have been used in sacred music including over 150 Gregorian Chants.
|The main six Solfeggio frequencies are:
396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz – Expression/Solutions
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order
It is said that the original tones originated with a hymn to John the Baptist but this is doubtful, others say that it was developed by Guido d’Arezzo (c. 991 AD – c. 1050 AD), a Benedictine monk. This avenue too has its own controversies. In the mid-1970s a Dr Joseph Puleo, a physician and leading herbalist is said to have re-discovered the secret tones using the Pythagorean method of numeral reduction. We know from previous discourses that each tone has it’s own unique potential and so we have Ut, Re, Mi Fa, Sol, La, which were taken from the first stanza of the Hymn to John the Baptist.
Ut queant laxis Resonare fibris
Mira gestorum Famuli tuorum
Solve polluti Labii reatum
Literal translation from Latin: “In order that the slaves might resonate (resound) the miracles (wonders) of your creations with loosened (expanded) vocal chords. Wash the guilt from (our) polluted lip. Saint John.”
In other words, so people could live together in peace and communicate in harmony about the miracle in their lives, and how God blessed them to produce this “magic”, people’s true unpolluted spiritual natures required revelation. The above text seems to suggest that Solfeggio notes open up a channel of communication with the Divine.
|UT – 396 Hz – turning grief into joy, liberating guilt & fear
RE – 417 Hz – undoing situations & facilitating change
MI – 528 Hz – transformation & miracles, repairing DNA
FA – 639 Hz – relationship, connecting with spiritual family
SOL – 741 Hz – expression/solutions, cleaning & solving
LA – 852 Hz – returning to spiritual order
The information given above is hotly contested especially as to the origin of the music and to its antiquity. In fact, some claims made on blog sites are easily debunked and rely on the views of others like urban myths. My own opinion is that it is not as old as many suggest but is more likely to be a product of the 20th century. A recommended dissertation is from Youtube
Now that we have some understanding of the tones and uses of Solfeggio we should know how to use them. Basically this is the easy part, Listen!. There are many sources on the web for this music including youtube. Being a natural sceptic I sometime ago acquired some and began to play it during my normal sleep cycle. I found a deeper sleep that was trouble free and restorative. Listen at least three times a week as an experiment. I will be interested in the results so use the comment section.
