Sound and music are powerful forces that have been used in many spiritual traditions as tools for acceleration. In this episode, learn how the physical frequencies of sound and music can affect our spiritual frequencies.
• Everything is made of frequencies, and sound and music allow us to physically perceive some of them. But because they can be observed on the physical plane, the frequencies of sound and music are lower on the spectrum.
• Certain sounds have a higher resonance than others: Sanskrit and Hebrew, for example, are two languages that many would say hold a high frequency. Mantras are often in Sanskrit, and even if they do have power because of the resonance of the language, the frequency vibration of the repeated word patterns isn’t high enough to shift distortion patterns in a significant way.
• But mantras or prayers can be tools for focusing your attention and awareness, stilling the mind, and bringing you to the present moment. This state of presence is the gateway to the Eternal Now. So these repeated sounds have the potential to allow you to access the infiniteness of spirit through focusing you into presence.
• Sound-based modalities can be complementary to frequency work. Sound baths, singing bowls, and tuning forks can have a very beneficial mental and emotional impact. Frequency work acts as an accelerator, turbo-boosting the power of these modalities.
• Expansive experiences are possible through sound-based modalities on their own, and they come about through the way these modalities facilitate presence. These modalities aren’t quite precise or focused enough to allow you to easily access transcended states on repeat — they won’t release the distortion patterns that block you from doing so.
• Music is a spectrum of sound, and it can uplift or lower you in your frequency bandwidth. Some people like to enhance the state they’re in: if they’re angry, they’ll play angry music that amplifies that emotional state. Certain music can also uplift your state, your frequency vibration, and accelerate detox.
• Music can also be used to avoid fully experiencing ourselves. We use it as a crutch to bypass what we’re feeling without dealing with the emotional state we’re in. Just notice if you’re using music to escape something. If so, do you have the strength to face whatever it is in silence?
