Music offers the timeless gift of healing. In song, a resonance is created which ripples through time and space traveling through and shifting our bodies, minds, and spirits. Much like the mantras in meditations, some music has the ability to provide nourishing tonal patterns, which create harmony and balance, opening us to our spiritual essence, providing access to pure consciousness. The power of music to connect us with our Divine Source and to open our whole being to the natural healing forces within is widely known. Music has been used in spiritual and healing rituals for many thousands of years by virtually every culture and civilization on the planet. Most of the music created in the past has been used to connect with a higher source and to induce healing.
It is well known that our universe is created through patterns of frequency. Science is now documenting what mystics of many traditions have known forever. Everything that exists in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms does so on a vibratory basis. This is obvious if you consider that electrons are always moving and vibrating.
Your brain consists of billions of neurons, which communicate with each other using electricity. This generates an electrical wave of activity across the brain. These are "brainwaves" and are measured in hertz (Hz, or cycles per second).
We can measure this electrical activity using sensitive equipment, such as an EEG (electroencephalograph) machine.
By doing this, scientists know that certain brainwave frequencies are always dominant during key states of mind.
For example, if your brainwaves are emitting a 2Hz frequency, then there's no doubt about it - you're asleep!
If your brainwave frequency is at 14Hz, then you're experiencing high levels of focus. If your brainwaves are at 4-8Hz (Theta), then you'll be enjoying deep levels of relaxation and meditation.
There are certain patterns of brainwaves too: for example, individuals experiencing creativity often spend time in the lower, dreamy frequencies, then occasionally spike up to sudden bursts of higher conscious "Eureka!" frequencies.
This isn't all a one-way experience however. You can also "reverse engineer" your brainwaves. In other words, by changing your brainwave frequencies, you can actually bring about a particular state - such as sleep, focus, or relaxation.
You can do this using a scientifically-validated process known as "brainwave entrainment." This involves exposing certain frequencies to the brain, typically using audio pulses. The brain then effectively copies this frequency.
For example: If you put two pendulum clocks next to each other, they will soon begin swinging in alignment with each other. If you hit a tuning fork and place it next to another, it will begin vibrating at the same frequency. This is known as the Frequency Follow Response (FFR) - and the human brain does exactly the same.
If you expose it to a particular frequency, it will follow that frequency. This is what we call brainwave entrainment.
This has a brilliant up-side: by changing your brainwave frequency, you actually temporarily change your state of mind. That means you can actually influence your brain to get into states of focus, sleep, and so on, just by exposing it to the relevant frequency patterns!
