Have you ever wondered if the music you’re listening to is healing you on a neurological level? There’s something magical that occurs when we connect with music and that’s undeniable. On an energetic level, we are able to create a soul connection with the frequency of the music. This isn’t new information. Sound healing has been a topic of interest and used across almost all cultures since prehistoric times. 1789 marks the beginning of studies on music therapy.

Research Shows

According to Psychology Today, research says music does heal emotional suffering. Music therapy effectively helps reduce depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. Furthermore, research also reveals the improvement of social functioning. Similarly, the vibrational frequencies of sound healing have the ability to repair tissue damage throughout the body. For this reason, music at its core is such a beautiful concept. Each of our vibrational frequencies aligns with the frequencies of music. In like manner, DNA strands are able to repair themselves. 

Let’s dive a little deeper into this topic. Energy medicine consists of two types of energy fields. First, is the veritable energy field. This includes sounds and electromagnetic forces including lasers and visible light. Veritable energy fields are measurable. Our health care system currently practices using these energy fields. To demonstrate, examples include radiation, laser eye correction, cardiac pacemakers, and more.

In addition, the second type is the putative energy field. Our current technology isn’t capable of measuring these fields. Putative energy fields relate to physical objects and psychological processes as being expressions of energy. Moreover, putative energy fields have been used to correct energy imbalances through acupuncture, reiki healing, and Tai chi.

Therefore, in the case of music, our bodies are the physical objects and the psychological processes include emotions, beliefs, thoughts, and so on. To summarize, sound healing is one of the most natural and oldest forms of healing. For instance, singing bowls, drum circles, and chanting are some examples of ancient sound healing. 

Tune Into Frequencies 

There are ancient frequencies that are vibrational matches to the chakras. These frequencies are known as Solfeggio Frequencies. This consists of a six-tone ancient scale. Each tone is made up of a frequency that balances the mind, body, and spirit. Hertz (Hz) is the measurement of frequencies.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear 
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
741 Hz – Expression/Solutions
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

Famous Songs Written in Sacred Frequencies 

528 Hz is known as the miracle and love frequency. Throughout history, musicians have songs in these frequencies and many of us have no idea! In particular, these songs have a way of hitting our soul and emotions in ways others simply can’t. In addition, many musicians have their guitars tuned to these frequencies. 

John Lennon – Imagine 
Michael Jackson – Black or White
Paul McCartney – Please Please Me
Grateful Dead – Terrapin Station

Room to Wonder 

It’s interesting to wonder how many songs have been written in these frequencies. Likewise, there’s room to consider if musicians make songs in these frequencies without even realizing it. Nowadays, there are so many electronic producers. Therefore, this could potentially increase the number of sacred song creations. So, the next time you listen to a song that hits you in the core, maybe consider it is in tune with these frequencies. Happy listening!
