Saging and Aging

While I was recently preparing to do a radio interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton, I re-read his remarkable book THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF. This is his 10th Anniversary edition with lots of new material. As I was reading this book, I came upon an experiment that was done with the elderly, in which 4 different…

Dolphins,Tonal Language, and Telepathy

   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 on their sounds. In a series of clicks, a dolphin can encode encyclopedic…

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 Goldman Everybody’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…

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. 21st will be ushering in an era of increased love and healing for humanity. I’d like to acknowledge, however, that currently our world seems to be divided…with tremendous turmoil occurring on economic and environmental levels.

The Healing Power of Cosmic Hum

Sound can be healing. It can calm and soothe us, bringing us into deep states that relax us, countering the negative effects of stress. One of the most powerful ways of experiencing this is by listening to specific music.
When we listen to sound, it goes into our ears and into our brain. It affects our nervous system which affects our heart rate, our respiration and our brain waves.
I have been in the field of researching and applying the use of sound for healing for nearly 30 years. “Cosmic Hum” may well be one of the most powerful recordings I’ve created and is already a favorite of yoga practitioners, those who meditate and those who simply want to relax. Like many of my other recordings, such as “Chakra Chants”, “De-Stress”, “Holy Harmony” and “Ultimate Om”,  it is being used for stress reduction and pain reduction, helping calm and relax the listener.

The Divine Name Reviewed by Dr. John Beaulieu

Review:  The Divine Name by Jonathan Goldman Dr. John Beaulieu, N.D., Ph.D.
Jonathan Goldman is unique in the field of sound healing. He makes sounds, embodies those sounds, follows them into alternate realities, and then makes them available to us. He says in The Divine Name: “sacred sound occurs when a sound is encoded with the intention of a positive outcome and beneficial results, such as healing”. I believe that Jonathan has the special gift of focusing his intention, journeying on sounds, and discovering the essence of the mystical.

Create Harmonics by Learning to Listen

Image via Wikipedia

I like to use the analogy that one is wearing dark glasses and then upon perceiving harmonics, is able to take off these glasses and see the full spectrum of sound.  Only of course, it is not the sense of sight we are dealing with, but the sense of hearing. Through learning to first listen to and then create vocal harmonics, it is almost as though one is able to remove ear plugs from the ears and become aware of the full spectrum of sound that is created.

What if there was a technique for sounding the personal name of God that could change the world?

It’s my great honor to let you know that my latest book THE DIVINE NAME, published by Hay House, is now available. I consider the THE DIVINE NAME to be the culmination of my work of over 30 years as a pioneer in the field of Sound and Vibration.
THE DIVINE NAME is about a discovery I made over 15 years ago of a universal sound that has the potential of not only creating wellness on a personal level, but of helping to shift consciousness on a global level. This discovery is a universal sound—what many consider to be the lost sound of God—that has the potential of creating health and harmony within us and assisting all of human kind.

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 certain studies about near death experiences reveal  that the most frequently experienced sound that was heard by people going through what you call “the tunnel” to the other side, was that of choral music deep in vocal harmonics. From an inter-dimensional standpoint, I can tell you that this is true. Vocal harmonics come as close as you can to create to the singing of angels.

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 naturally within their own sounds during sacred sounding. The question is why?
Harmonics, as we discussed last time, have always been around, for they are simply an aspect of the physics of vibration. Vocal harmonics have also always occurred–particularly when individuals would sound elongated vowel sounds.

Nouvo-European Vocal Harmonics

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 discuss Nouvo-European Vocal Harmonics.
When I first began to study the phenomenon of vocal harmonics, I listened to many different styles of creating these sounds, including the Tibetan “One Deep” Voice and Mongolian “Hoomi”  throat singing style.
