Cymatics on Fire

The principles of Cymatics, the study of waveform phenomenon, have been demonstrated using many materials--plastics, pastes, and mainly water. These are marvelous images. But now, we have something new in the realm of Cymatics--standing waves demonstrated on a plate of fire!Cymatics is a word coined by Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor, who in his spare…

Sound vs. Music

I have often contemplated the delineation between sound and music. From a certain higher perspective, there is no delineation, for  all sound could be perceived as music and all music is sound.  However, with that said, I think you’ll agree that one person’s music can often be another person’s noise!  Noise is usually defined as something like “unpleasant sound”. …

The Lemurian Tuning Forks, Magic Frequencies, and Sacred Ratios

The Lemurian Tuning Forks, Magic Frequencies, and Sacred Ratiosby Jonathan GoldmanEverybody’s searching for the “Magic Frequency”.  And that’s good.  From my perspective, every frequency has its own attributes. With that said, I don’t think there is one frequency that is the “be all” and “end all” of frequencies—the one that will heal everyone or do…

On Sound

 This video clip is from a gathering at the sacred space of the Star House here in Boulder, CO.  The presentation begins with my best answer to a question that I am commonly asked "What can Sound be used to heal?" I truly believe that the possibilities are limitless, both on a personal and planetary…

Sonic Levitation Video

This remarkable video demonstration of acoustic levitation was discovered on YouTube by Jonathan Goldman. It's quite extraordinary to see! Not only is the sound levitating the water, but it is also changing the shape of the droplet. Jonathan asked his friend and colleague Chuck Wilson if he could provide a brief explanation about what it is that is going on…

2012 And Beyond

Here we are at the end of 2012, fast approaching the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012—a time when many traditions and prophecies predict great shift and change on our planet. I’d like to present a positive and uplifting outlook for the upcoming times. It has been my intuitive knowing for quite a while that Dec.…

Harmonics and Hearing

Image via Wikipedia The first sense to arrive is that of hearing. And hearing is you last sense to depart. Even scientists will tell you that for those revived from the near death experience the last sense that they were aware of on the physical plane was sound. These scientists will also tell you that…

Vocal Harmonics and Listening

Image via Wikipedia My first introduction to hearing vocal harmonics came from listening to recordings many years ago.  I heard the harmonic sounds and tried to duplicate them. Later on, I studied with masters of the harmonic voice from many different traditions. Yet, there are now many individuals who hear and consciously create vocal harmonics quite…

Nouvo-European Vocal Harmonics

Image by Thai Jasmine via Flickr In our last conversation, we began the discussion of harmonics.  We talked about the actual physics of harmonics–their relationships as geometric multiples of vibrating strings.  We also discussed some of their uses in the esoteric traditions such as the Tibetan “Deep Voice” chanting style.  I would now like to…

The Tibetan Voice

  The Tibetan Voice is now manifesting more and more in the West as a means of creating resonance that effect both the Celestial and the Gaia energies. A number of Westerners, including myself, have now developed the Tibetan Deep Voice and are sharing it with others here in the West.  Women, as well as men,…

Harmonics of the Voice

Image by Vít Hassan via Flickr With harmonics of the voice, we are usually talking about overtones that are anywhere from twice the frequency of the fundamental, up to 15 times the fundamental. While it is possible that harmonics can conceptually represent sound turning into light (because when a sonic frequency is multiplied by 40…

The Harmonics of Sound

Image via Wikipedia Thus far, we have discussed various aspects of sound, including concepts such as “frequency”, “intent”, “vibrational resonance”, “visualization”, “vocalization” and other aspects of using sound to shift frequency. Last issue, we mentioned the idea of a “harmonic language.” It is time now to begin to deal with the subject of harmonics, or overtones, as…

Sound and Light

Guest Article by Buryl Payne, Ph.D. Although the word ‘frequency’ is used for both sound and light, it may be misleading our thinking. A pound of feathers is not related to a pound of gold, nor is a cup of hot coffee related to a cup of flour, even though we can stretch for some…

Dolphin Sounds and Telepathy

Image by CW Ye via Flickr Many frequently ask about dolphins and dolphin sounds. Dolphins have the ability to send and receive sonic frequencies of 180,00 cycles per second. That is 10 times faster than humans can perceive–human hearing ends at about 16,000 cycles per second. Dolphins have the ability to project multi-dimensional holographic images…

Vocalization + Visualization = Manifestation

In my previous blogs we discussed the concepts of “frequency” and “intent”.  “Frequency” is the rate at which an object vibrated and is also a way of measuring sound.   “Intent” is the energy behind any created sound.  Together, these two elements create how a sound may be used–it’s effect for healing, transformation or whatever.   In…

What are the Vibrational Rates of Your Chakras?

With regard to the chakras and its associated energy fields, we would like you to consider that in certain traditions for example, a mantra which is given an initiate will change as the initiate undergoes spiritual transformation. What sound worked to resonate a chakra at one level changes as the individual changes and another mantra…

The Meaning of Tantra

Image via Wikipedia “Tantra” is Sanskrit, the ancient language of the Hindu tradition. Like many other sacred languages such as Hebrew or Tibetan, there is frequently not simply one singular meaning that can be applied to the words which we translate. Thus “tantra” is often translated as “continuum” or “unbroken stream” and indicates a flow…
