Pythagorean Tuning Forks IMG_0390
2/3 Ratio (256hz & 384hz)
by Jonathan Goldman
These tuning forks represent a powerful new way of using sound to resonate the body, brain and etheric fields. These tuning forks were developed by John Beaulieu, N.D., Ph.D., author of MUSIC AND SOUND IN THE HEALING ARTS. These specific tuning forks are of C (256 cycles per second) and G (384 cycles per second). They are of the musical interval (the name given when two notes are sounded together) called “the Perfect Fifth”.  With these tuning forks, they are two harmonically related notes which vibrate against each other at the ratio of 2:3 (the C tuning fork vibrates two times as fast as an unstruck C of 128 cycles per second–the G tuning fork vibrates three times as fast as that unstruck C. When struck together they create the ratio of two to three, considered sacred in many traditions with an understanding of the relationship of mathematics to the cosmos. Legend tells that Pythagoras’s, ancient Greek philosopher and musician believed that the ratio of 2/3 was extremely therapeutic and transformative. These tuning forks seem to create a great sense of calmness and tranquility. They balance the left and right hemispheres of the brain, reducing brain wave activity and inducing states of relaxation. In addition, many people feel they balance the auric field as well as releasing blocked energy. Frequently, many people experience many other positive effects from using the tuning forks.
According to John Beaulieu, “When we listen to the tuning forks our vestibular system via the semi-circular canals reproportions our body based on the natural ratios of the tuning forks. During the listening process our physical body will reposture itself in alignment with the intervals created by the tuning forks. During the process our nervous system via the right and left hemispheres of the brain comes into balance.
“This special interval is known in music as a perfect fifth.  Lao Tzu referred to this interval as the source of universal harmony between the forces of Yin and Yang.  In India, the fifth is believed to create a sound through which Shiva calls Shakti to the dance of life. Apollo, the Greek Sun God of Music and Healing plucked the fifth on his sacred lyre to call dolphin messengers to Delphi.”
Experiment with your tuning forks. Use them on friends and clients.They can produce the most remarkable experiences for many people. Therapists frequently use them to calm and balance clients before or after sessions. As the nervous system comes into alignment, frequently the body and energy fields will also follow this, repatterning with the sacred ratio of the tuning forks.Try humming or sounding with the tuning forks for additional experiences. Have fun using them and remember that they are powerful, sacred implements that can be utilized as extraordinary tools for self-healing and transformation.
