Throughout the ages, sound and music, originally a highly developed science in the ancient mystery schools, have been used as vehicles for healing. This healing was based on concepts of life that recognized vibration as the fundamental creative force.
Sound and Light are the building blocks of the universe, the very framework upon which all of creation is hung. Every molecule of matter is intoning its tone. Every leaf, atom, particle, planet, galaxy, every cell in our body is humming it own tune. Even as we were being born, as our bodies were being formed a chord was being intoned, our own individual chord.
Music affects the physical body in profound ways. Sound waves enter into the physical body and move atoms around, rearranging our cellular structure and putting us back in order. Music – in its higher forms – has the power to lower blood pressure, alter the breathing rate, reorganize and harmonize molecular structure, elevate mood, take us beyond the everyday world to the spiritual world, transform consciouness and ultimately liberate our spirit.
“Without music, life would be a mistake.” – Nietzsche
Some music will actually dis-arrange or de-range the embodiement, and there have been studies done by Dorothy Retallack on plants to prove this. Dorothy placed three groups of plants in glass enclosures, and played various types of music to the plants for a period of 30 days. The first group of plants were played acid rock music, and actually leaned away from the speakers in an attempt to get away from the sounds, becoming disheveled, with stunted growth. The second group of plants listened to Bach and similar music, and experienced better than normal growth. The third group was played devotional music, and leaned towards the speakers, twining around the speaker wires to get closer to the sound. They had the most luxurious growth and most organized coherant patterns of all. Dorothy’s comment on the experiment, in regards to the first group of plants: “If this is what this music does to plants, what is it doing to our children?”
There is a report of doctors in the south of France who prescribe specific pieces of music to be listened to three times a day in place of medicine. There are reports of cows yielding more milk when played classical music in the barn. Higher consciousness music enhances life affirming decisions and results. Lower vibration music can direct the listener towards negative destructive thoughts and sometimes even suicide.
” A tone is a living cell… It is a microcosom reflecting faithfully the macrocosom, its laws, its center. A tone is a solar system.” – Dane Rudyar
Music holds the key to remembering our origin and reconnecting with source. Our spirit, regardless of nationality, creed, time or space recognizes sound as the doorway to the infinite. Hence, music is the universal language.
“Sound is God” – Nada Brahma
Dis-ease, dis-harmony within the cells, is ultimately spiritual in nature. The separated self, feeling separate from Source, begins creating dis-ease-ment from this feeling of separateness. Certain kinds of music can help one remember that connection with Source, and the listener can only go as high, as deep and as wide as the composer went when receiving and composing the music.
