Dr Joseph Puelo and Leonard Horowitz, a pair of behavioral scientists from the 70’s, stumbled upon a set of frequencies, with corresponding effects, each of which are linked with a syllable of the old Solfege scale. The Solfege scale was a Benedictine style of teaching tones for choir singing. The old scale is believed to have been developed for the chants because those tones were recognized as healing tones. In our modern world we have lost the art of music as a healing tool.
Can sound affect you on more than an emotional level? Sure it can. Sound has a whole level of usefulness that we’re only beginning to discover; from successfully helping us transcend the blood-brain barrier in the medical field, to the noise of certain street lamps putting us on edge, there’s a lot more going on than we really notice. There are entire ranges of perception we can’t pick up on normally, and it’s a bit strange that one of the few that we can detect receives such little merit. Over the past few decades, however, it seems we finally realize that sound is useful for more than just entertaining, communicating, and pissing off your neighbors.
UT – 396 Hz – turning grief into joy, liberating guilt & fear
RE – 417 Hz – undoing situations & facilitating change
MI – 528 Hz – transformation & miracles, repairing DNA
FA – 639 Hz – relationship, connecting with spiritual family
SOL – 741 Hz – expression/solutions, cleaning & solving
LA – 852 Hz – returning to spiritual order
So these are the frequencies, with their corresponding effects. Either by playing the tone and meditating, or listening to music written with the scale (Which has been extended to 9 notes, more on that later), one could experience change through these frequencies.
Candace Pert, PhD, Author of ‘Your Body is Your Subconscious Mind,’ had several theories about core vibrations affecting the human body, and had much to say about natural resonances being able to affect the human body. (See : Molecules of Emotion ). A true master in her field, Dr Pert took a huge step in bringing the Holistic Method into the real medical forefront, as well as establishing credence for more abstract thinking in medical research.
So if these frequencies were so useful and effective, why were they not realized in the west until the 70s? This was most likely due to the change to a perfect interval scale system in western music, which shifted the base frequencies used to tune notes. All of the Solfeggio frequencies are slightly off from these notes, and while the perfect interval system standardized music, part of music’s effectiveness was supposedly lost.
