The fundamental principle of sound healing is Resonance, a word used when describing the frequencies of vibration. These frequencies are used as a transformative and healing modality. In every organ, bone, tissue, and so on, we are in a state of vibration. With research into binaural frequencies, since their discovery in 1839 by German experimenter, Heinrich Wilhelm Dove, the application for sound therapy has exploded. Specialists are using it to treat ailments while students are using it to help with focus and study. Today’s healing music modalities use various frequencies such as Solfeggio-Binaural Frequencies, and these are included in Heart Activation Music. There are also ‘brain wave entrainment’ frequencies, which assist with sleep and healing DNA: the list grows, as there is a wide range of these healing frequencies available today. Binary sound frequencies are important within the Heart Activation Music because they help unlock something energetically, and this ‘something’ will be different for each person. WINTER 2017
