Sound Education Association
A New Sound, Music and Geometry Curriculum for Children
The Sound Education Association (SEA) is a collaboration of Administrators and Educators who are interested in bringing Sound Education for children into Public and Private Schools. The Sound Healing Research Foundation received a $100,000 grant to develop a sound curriculum for children for two Montessori schools. With our staff of 20 instructors at the Globe Sound Healing Institute we developed over 2500 exercises for children from 3 months to 18 years old. Every exercise is based on the latest research on brain development for children, at different age and learning levels. Five hundred exercises are complete and now being offered for home schooling through the website www.SoundEducationCenter.com
The Sound Curriculum – The Five Tracks:
1. Physics of Vibration
2. Instruments and Sound
3. Music as a way of Understanding Nature and the Universe
4. Geometry as a way of reconnecting to nature and understanding consciousness (as Plato taught it)
5. Awareness and Emotional Expression

Below are the projects we have been working on at the Institute
There are several interesting avenues that the foundation is exploring around using binaural beat rhythms to entrain the brain into Delta (sleep), Theta (creativity and Oneness), Alpha (learning), Beta (thinking and overcoming ADD/ADHD), and Gamma (bliss). LEARN MORE ABOUT BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT WITH BINAURAL BEATS HERE
We have been working with a professional Brainwave Researcher and have done EEG maps of those listening to David’s music on the sound table. It has shown that it commonly brings the brain into very consistent and stable alpha and theta brainwave rhythms.
Tuning Binaural Beats to a Person
Based on the research of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, using binaural beats to entrain the brain into a desired brainwave state is found to be more effective when the beats are tuned to the natural rhythm of a person’s brain in these states. In the end, getting someone’s brain entrained into a stable and consistent rhythm that is the natural rhythm for them is the ideal goal. Our Sound Therapy Center has been doing assessments to find a person’s natural rhythm for over 10 years. Learn more about the treatment here: www.SoundHealingCenter.com/therapy/brainwave
One of the most interesting aspects of brain research is based around brain maps. Any state of consciousness is actually made up of multiple brainwave rates spread across the brain. We believe that the future of brainwave entrainment will involve entraining the parts of the brain into a whole brain map. Ultimately we can entrain the brain into higher states of consciousness including Gratitude, Compassion, Love and even Oneness.
UltraSound on Micro-Tubules for Oneness
Jeffery Martin has done research on using ultrasound frequencies on micro-tubules in the brain, in order to bring a person into a state of Oneness – sometimes called Unity Consciousness. Jeffery can even show when a person is in this state of Oneness using an EEG. Science and Spirituality have now met.
Binaural Beats for Dementia
We are working directly with one of the largest Dementia research companies on a detailed research project involving Alzheimer’s patients at Paradise Valley Estates elderly center in Fairfield, California. Our first trials are simply working to entrain the brain into its natural rhythm.
Kaiser Hospital Connection
We are now working directly with Kaiser Hospital (Petaluma, San Rafael, and Sebastopol). They commonly now refer patients to us for treatments with sound for Anxiety and Pain Relief.
We conducted a workshop and multiple fairs for the doctors. Some of these doctors have been turned on to our Bass Pod and Sound Lounge systems. Interestingly enough, 75% of the doctors we met with had already been to a Sound Bath!
Sound for PTSD and First Responders
The most effective treatment is to put people on our Sound Lounge with David Gibson’s music.
Ed Rupert is working with first responders in Colorado using our Sound Lounge paired with David’s music. Whenever first responders have a crisis, whether personal (suicidal ideation is not uncommon) or in the line of duty, Ed takes the Sound Lounge out to them in his van and puts them on it. He have has saved over 300 lives in just the last few years.
Another colleague is using the Sound Lounges for vets and has connected with the VA in Sacramento. He also reports dramatic results. One vet who was on 15 meds is now off all of them and back to normal after only 6 weeks of treatment. His work has been so effective that the VA is now talking to him about creating treatment plans for the VA Nationwide.
We would like to setup similar systems throughout the country. Let us know if you might be interested in helping in any way.
Music for the Integrative Therapy Department at Massachusetts General Hospital
Massachusetts General Hospital paid us to create a series of CDs for the Integrative Health Department. They include CDs for Depression, Sleep, Fatigue, Focus, Stress, and Headaches.
Music for Surgery at UC Medical Center Connection
We developed a wide range of CDs for surgery with one of their Anesthesiologists. We have guided meditation CDs that have proven to be extremely effective for before and during surgery, as well as many CDs for Post-Op. You can find the CDs HERE.
Research with Parkinson’s Patients
We did clinical research with a dozen Parkinson’s patients on our Sound Lounge, and were able to get rid of their tremors just about every time. Many of them were able to go down or off their meds by using our CDs, finally getting a good night’s sleep. MORE INFO HERE
Sound and Music for Drug Addiction
We did workshops at a rehab center next to the Institute when it was in San Francisco. It is so inspiring to see people going into a complete state of peace and homeostasis so quickly. David’s music on the sound lounge has dramatically changed 100’s of people in two rehab centers in Chicago.
Treatment Plans for Autism
The Sound Healing Research Foundation has currently made a connection with an Autism Center in Richmond, California that works with over 100 autistic adults. We created a wide range of treatments that we will be testing.
Sound for Pain Relief
There are two primary ways that sound and music can be used for pain. First, is to simply play music that gets people “high”, “in the zone”, heart open, or “blissed out”. Often pain goes away on its own, and occasionally, for good. Second, is to apply specific frequencies and timbres directly to the pain.
The Institute has developed a series of frequency CDs that are played directly on the body for pain and other issues. They are the most well researched frequencies in the field of sound healing. You don’t listen to them; you place the headphones right on the body where the issue is. Even more effective than headphones on the body is the Sound Lounge/Table. The Sound Pillow/Dolphin or Bass Belt can be placed right on the pain (if not too sensitive).
We have CDs for muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, circulatory system, respiratory system, endocrine glands, asthma, arthritis, brain, and depression.

How Sound Works
The basis of all sound healing is creating Consistent, Stable Vibrations to overcome Chaotic Vibrations physically, mentally and emotionally. It all contributes to peace and homeostasis — physically, mentally, emotionally and even Spiritually.
From there it gets quite detailed. Everything has its own specific frequency that it naturally vibrates at. In the body, when you find that frequency and play it to the body, it triggers its own natural vibrational state and makes it healthy. If you turn the volume up a large amount it will explode.
These are the two ways to work with vibration. Find what’s right and resonate it into its own healthy state. Or find what’s wrong, and either also resonate into its healthy state, or break it up. BACK TO “ABOUT SOUND HEALING” OVERVIEWS
Hierarchy of Vibration
In Gibson’s book, The Complete Guide to Sound Healing, David has designed a theory of how vibration works in the body, mind and emotions that is based on empirical evidence and research over the last 20 years. This theory explains a hierarchy of vibration. The hierarchy consists of the following:
Energy – Intention
Music (Frequencies, timbres, intervals and chords over time)
Intervals and Chords (More than one sound)
Timbres (Many frequencies or harmonics that make a sound)
Different healing modalities focus on one or more of the levels in the hierarchy. Tuning forks and tone generators work primarily at the frequency level. All other instruments and sounds are working at the timbre level. When you have two or more notes of an instrument or sound you are working at the musical interval/chord level. Add rhythm and changing notes and you have music. Add energy or intention and it all goes to another level.
Ideally, it is best to work at all levels at once.
When it comes to health and healing “smooth flow” at the music and energy level is the most important part. Smooth flow without blockages is the definition of health.
You can work at the frequency or timbre level to either break up the blockages that are impeding the flow, or harmonize them back into a consistent, stable vibration so they receive and transmit a smooth flow.
Or, we can just create a smooth flow musically. You can also run smooth flow with energy. Gratitude, compassion and love are great examples of smooth flow energetically. Spirit or Source is the ultimate smooth flow.
In the body, you could think of it like this:
Cells are Frequencies
At the frequency level there are either Chaotic and Coherent vibrations. Chaotic vibrations can be created by physical toxins in our food and air, physical trauma, chaotic electromagnetism, and pain itself, or by emotional toxins like fear, anger, anxiety, and stress, to name a few. Chaotic vibrations break the body down. They are not good for your heart, your nervous system, your organs, or any part of the body. They impede the flow. On the other hand, Consistent and Coherent Vibrations not only don’t break the body down; they can actually heal the body.
When the body is healthy
every single part of the body is naturally “humming” consistently.
You can either break up wayward frequencies with “destructive resonance” or resonate them back into their natural harmonic state.
Destructive resonance works by finding the natural resonant frequency of something, then turn the volume up until it explodes or disintegrates. This is exactly how ultrasound works on kidney stones. They find the frequency of the stones and turn the volume up until it explodes – somewhat similar to exploding a wine glass. There is great YouTube video that shows and explains the science behind how this works in detail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE827gwnnk4
Anthony Holland has also done research to find the resonant frequency of cancer. In a Ted Talk he shows videos of 4 different types of cancer being exploded with frequencies – another example of “destructive resonance.” Here’s the link to the YouTube video: https://youtu.be/1w0_kazbb_U
We can resonate parts of the body back into their natural harmonic state using and consistent vibration. All of the vowels create Coherent Vibrations. Also, all of the common Sound Healing instruments also create Consistent Tones – including crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, tuning forks, didgeridoos, etc. With tone generators and other electronics you can get very specific in order to entrain a part of the body into its natural healthy frequency.
The key is to find the frequency of every part of the body in order to be able to entrain it into its own healthy state. This is why we created the GeneOM project (www.GeneOM.com). The goal of the project is to find the natural healthy frequency of every single part of the body in order to resonate it back into its own healthy state of consistent vibration. The problem is that these frequencies are different from person to person. We have now find a device that will measure the frequency content of a cell scientifically, in real time.
Organs and other Parts of the Body are Timbres: A Combination of Frequencies
Organs are many frequencies. Healthy organs have a combination of frequencies that create a healthy chord. When resonating a part of the body into its natural healthy frequency it is more effective when you find the entire harmonic content of the part of the body. This is now possible with an electron microscope called the Raman Spectroscopy. When exploding a tumor with destructive resonance it is more effective to know all of the frequencies that makeup the cells. Then you can explode it 100% of the time.
The Relationship between 2 or more Body Parts is a Musical Interval or Chord
In the body, it is the relationship between parts of a system. Again, everything is vibration, so any two parts of the body create a musical interval relationship. It might be the relationship between the overall frequency of the heart and the liver. It might be the relationship between the 210 types of cells in the body. It might be the relationship between the different parts of the brain. When you have harmonious relationships in the body, the energy flows more smoothly through the whole system.
Since some of the natural frequencies of the body might be different from person to person the GeneOM project is looking at harmony between the parts of the body. We assume that the musical interval relationship between the heart and the liver will be the same from person to person when both people are healthy. We assume that there are specific musical interval relationships between each of the 210 types of cells. The only thing that we know for sure about the body is that is in working in complete harmony when a person is healthy. Even when someone is not healthy most of the body is still working in harmony or the person would be dead.
As we collect data we will display a body on our website that will show the musical relationships of all the parts of any system in the body. These musical intervals may then be played back to resonate the parts of the body back into their natural harmony.
Flow Through each of the Systems in the Body is Music
Smooth flow can be looked at from physical or energetic perspectives.
If you don’t have smooth flow in the nervous system, you will be shaky. If you don’t have smooth flow in the circulatory system, you could have a heart attack. No smooth flow in the digestive system and all types of problems happen. Without smooth flow in the brain you cannot focus. There are many things that can cause blockages in any system. Often it is physical or emotional toxins.
The key is then to resonate the system back into smooth flow.
“Smooth Flow” is the whole deal.
Smooth Flow creates at Peaceful State of Being.
When our system is at Peace
the immune system flourishes
and every organ goes into alignment.
Therefore, the function of breaking up chaotic frequencies and
resonating any single part of the body into coherence,
is so that it can now receive and transmit flow through the whole system.
The function of resonating harmonic relationships between parts of the body
is so that the natural healing smooth flow of health may resume in the body.
The ultimate research is to use high end technologies to find the rhythm and melody of each of the 11 systems in the body tuned precisely to a person. Then use needles with frequencies, microcurrents and infrared light to pulse that flow of music through each system to heal every disease in the world. Stay tuned.
Energy and Intention
As shown by Dr. Emoto, if you focus love on water, it will create a beautiful geometric crystalline pattern when it freezes. If you focus any negativity on water (such as hate) it will form a discordant, chaotic pattern. Many other clinical studies (covered in Lynne McTaggart’s book, “The Intention Experiment”) have proven that your intention not only affects matter, it affects yourself and others. Quantum Physics actually explains how this works. It is all based on the main law of resonance — “A strong resonant frequency will overcome and entrain a weaker frequency into the same vibration as the stronger.”
Since everything is vibration, even an intention is vibration. Some intentions are pure frequencies, like sending love to someone. Some are more complex frequency combinations, like holding the energy of Love/Wisdom. You can also hold a flowing intention, like running energy from the earth up through the feet and out the heart, while also running Spirit in to the top of. your head also out the heart — A flowing intention.
The more an intention is held with 100% focus without distraction, the more effective it is. If you hold an intention of healing love for someone in need, it will be exponentially more powerful when you hold it without distraction.
However, even more important, is when you get a room full of people holding an intention with 100% focus it can be unbelievably powerful. You get a roomful of people holding intention without distraction and you can practically heal just about anything. You can even begin to make good headway on the planet and humanity.
It has also been proven that intention gets embedded in recorded music. So when you play back the music it is carried by the sound to the listener. In the classes we have students practice holding an intention with 100% concentration. We have done recording sessions in the classes where we tone with an intention for over an hour. We have held individual intentions of Unconditional Love, Healing for the Planet, Gratitude, Compassion, Joy and 100% Focus. You can find the CD, “Holding Frequency,” HERE.
Smooth flow is the essence of health in the body – at every level physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
This hierarchy can also be found at every level of reality including electromagnetics, color, light, geometry and the quantum field. It is also the basis of all Living Systems – including the earth’s ecosystems.
Brainwave Entrainment and Binaural Beats
The effect of rhythms to entrain the brain into Delta (sleep), Theta (creativity and being in “the zone”), Alpha (presence and learning), Beta (thinking and overcoming ADD/ADHD), Gamma (blissing out).
Binaural beats are created when two tones are detuned from each other by a small amount. When you have two speakers playing the two different frequencies simultaneously, the two sounds cancel each other out as they physically meet in space. For example, if you have 100 hertz and 102 hertz you will hear the difference tone of 2 hertz. And, because this is in the frequency range of Delta, it will entrain our brain into that brainwave state, normally within one minute. The science on this is well proven. If you hook up an EEG unit to your brain (which picks up brainwave frequencies), you will see the brain synchronize to the rhythm.
This has opened up an entire field of brainwave entrainment CD’s (just do a search on the web for “binaural beats”). The Monroe Institute calls it Hemisync. Centerpointe calls it Holosync. You will find 100’s of songs with binaural beats on YouTube.
There are many issues that brainwave entrainment can help with based on the type of brainwave it creates:
1 . Epsilon | < .5 cycles per second | Deep Delta also shows up in a high state of meditation. Lower frequencies of .1 cycles per second happen when in a state of love.
2. Delta | .5 – 3.5 cycles per second | This is the frequency that your brain vibrates at when you are in deep sleep. Deep sleep is a very powerful state — it is when we are directly connected to Source being regenerated. Therefore, these frequencies can be used to help you to get to sleep and to sleep throughout the night. They can also be used to give you needed rest without having to go into complete sleep. Delta is also associated with deep meditative states so it can also be use to entrain you into a state of deep peace.
3. Theta | 3.5 – 7 cycles per second | This is the frequency your brain goes into when dreaming. This could also be daydreaming. It is actually a very creative state where people often receive downloads or other creative inspiration. Therefore, it can be used before doing any type of creative brainstorming or artistic endeavors. Theta is also a state that you go into when listening to the Shaman’s drumming in Journey Work.
4. Alpha | 7-13 cycles per second | Alpha is relaxed attention. It is the ideal state for learning and sports. It is also a very creative state, particularly when problem solving intuitively versus mentally. It is very powerful state that can be extremely helpful for better concentration. It can also help with memory loss.
5. Beta | 13-20 cycles per second | Beta is our normal day to day waking consciousness, especially when doing mental processing such as studying, thinking about your schedule, figuring out anything, or reading this text. The main type of ADD is where the brain doesn’t go fast enough to access Beta. Therefore, they commonly prescribe speed. However, you can simply listen to binaural beats and entrain the brain into Beta to overcome ADD with no side effects.
6. Gamma | > 20 cycles per second | Gamma shows up when in a high state of meditation and is associated with a state of bliss.
As mentioned, binaural beats are way more effective when they are tuned to the rhythm that a person’s brain would naturally be at when in a particular brainwave state. We provide the assessment to find your brain’s rhythm here: www.SoundHealingCenter.com/therapy/brainwave.
Left/Right Brain Syncronization
Whenever, we listen to any rhythm, whether is any drum beat or rhythm in music, the breath of a purring cat, a washing machine, or the slow oscillation of a crystal bowl — we can be entrained into a specific brainwave state associated with that rhythm. However, when you wear headphones, you get a second benefit. When you listen to one sound in the left ear it goes to the right brain. The sound in the right ear goes to the left brain. The brain then connects the two frequency across the Corpus Callosum — the part of the brain that normally functions to connect the two sides of the brain. When the left and right brain are synchronized this is our optimal state. Most people are rarely in a state of left/right brain synchronization, so it is quite incredible to be able to access this state almost immediately simply by listening to binaural beats on headphones.
Tingshas are an ancient way of synchronizing the brain as they can be held so one frequency is in the left ear and the other is in the right ear.
The Schumann Resonance
There is a really auspicious frequency that occurs in our atmosphere. It is an electromagnetic frequency that resonates between the earth and the ionosphere and it is triggered by lightning. And, lightning strikes somewhere in the atmosphere just about every second. The frequency is 7.83 hertz and is on the threshold of Alpha and Theta. You can listen to it here:
The Schumann Resonance - 7.83 Hertz
This frequency entrains every brain on the planet into Alpha/Theta. And, because it has been doing this for millions of years, we have become addicted to it — rather, it is part of the frequency spectrum of who we are as beings on this planet. In one way, it is our connection to the Earth (or, at least, our atmosphere). The only problem is this electromagnetic frequency is obscured by the electromagnetism in a city (Many people say that can actually hear it out in the countryside). NASA has found that we can actually get sick if we are missing this frequency. Therefore astronauts now get the frequency electromagnetically while in space. In fact, one our instructors actually has a watch that pulses at the 7.83 hertz.
Brain Map Entrainment
As mentioned above, entraining the brain into an entire brain map of a specific state of consciousness has such an incredible potential. When you are in a state of gratitude, love or joy — there is not anxiety or depression. We are on the threshold of completely overcoming most mental/emotional issues.
Sound and Emotions
Releasing Emotions with Sound
As babies we were professional Sound Healers – if you had anything going on you automatically let it out with a sound – “Wahhh.” Then around 2 they tell us to be quiet – “Shhhhh.” And, we lose that God given ability to release stuck emotions with sound.
Stuck emotions are like music that gets stuck like a broken record. Healthy emotions are meant to flow on through. They flow smoothly to the last note of the song.
Emotions are also like different timbres or sounds. The emotions that can hurt you (when held too long) are like dissonant, staticky and chaotic tonalities. Whereas the emotions that support our health are the ones that are associated with stable, consistent vibrations like the vowels. This would be like gratitude, compassion, love and joy.
When an emotion begins to hurt you in any way face it and use sound to transform it into a harmonious emotion. Don’t ever allow yourself to hurt yourself.
In the classes we go over many techniques to face and release emotions with sound.
Transforming Negative Beliefs
One technique is to identify a negative belief, then turn it around backwards and make the sound of it to get it into your body. The tricky part is to turn it around backwards in a way that your subconscious believes it is true. This can be difficult sometimes. Ultimately, all negative beliefs are illusions. The truth is that you are a perfect Spirit in every way.
BACK TO “ABOUT SOUND HEALING” OVERVIEWS
Sound and Higher Consciousness
Higher Consciousness can be defined in many ways. It can be as simple as gratitude, compassion, love and joy. With EEG we can now precisely show when a person is in Unity Consciousness where they are One with the Universe.
Multi-Awareness to Access Oneness
Whenever, you tune into more than one thing at a time — simultaneously — your brain actually goes into Theta. For example, watching sparkles on the ocean can put you into Theta as you start to see waves of light move across the water. In this state “you” disappear, and you become only the experience. This also happens when listening to more than one sound at a time as in a song. You’ve probably had the experience where it seems like you become the music. This state where “you” disappear is the same experience reported when a person enters into oneness with everything in the Universe. Therefore, you can use multiple sounds as a portal to access this incredible and profound state of bliss. In the classes we work with this technique to help you access “oneness.”
When you are at one with all you are in a state of Theta. Therefore, you can use Binaural Beats tuned to you to entrain you into this state.
As previously, mentioned entraining your brain into your own natural state of bliss can be done these days with electrodes that are pulsing different frequencies on different parts of the brain.
Using sound, micro-currents and light together we now help just about anyone access these higher states of consciousness. The future is looking really bright.
BACK TO “ABOUT SOUND HEALING” OVERVIEWS
Your Home Note vs. All Frequencies
There are two main schools of thought in the field of Sound Healing. You need one home note or you need all frequencies.
Your Home Note
Research has now shown that each of us has a home note that we each vibrate at. This frequency is most apparent when you are centered, grounded or in love. The frequency also naturally emanates from you when you are in a state of perfect presence and awareness of now.
There are many frequencies that distract us from our own. There are sounds of the city, phones, cars, trucks, trains, planes, electricity, and electromagnetism. There are the chaotic and distracted frequencies of disconnected people around us. Probably the most difficult are the distracting frequencies within us — such as chaotic and stressful thoughts and pains. With all the chaos and inconsistency around us, no wonder it is so easy to lose your frequency.
When you are consistently in your home note you are especially centered and peaceful. When you find and get to know your resonant frequency you can use it to help lead you back to yourself where you totally comfortable in your skin, and at peace in any situation.
If you are a sensitive person you can find your resonant frequency by simply tuning into yourself and listening for it. In the classes we do several tests to find it.
You can then use this frequency to resonate yourself back to your core in several ways. Simply toning can do it, but there is nothing like listening to a song in your key on a sound table. It powerfully resonates your frequency through every cell of your body. Most people get off the sound table in a state of profound stillness. You can also listen to a song in your key (we have a few of our songs in every key). You can also ultimately get a Crystal Bowl in your key (I just love my “B” bowl), or even get a tuning fork. Then whenever you feel a little “whacked out” or off center you can use your CD or instrument to bring you back home.
You can also use this note to connect to access your actual Soul. We assume that your Soul note is where you are at peace in your body (unless God is messing with us). Your soul carries an array of information about you and your purpose in this lifetime as well as containing a direct connection to Source and all the information that is. When in alignment with the frequency of your Soul you are in alignment with both nature and Spirit.
Every Frequency is a Nutrient
Based on the research of Alfred Tomatis, every frequency is a nutrient. If any frequency is missing because of physical or emotional trauma it can cause lasting physical or emotional issues. The primary way to find missing frequencies is through Voice Analysis (www.VoiceAnalysisHarmony.com). You then listen to the missing notes/frequencies to get them back in your body so you have a good balance — similar to vitamin therapy.

Geometry and Cymatics
You can also look at geometry based on the Hierarchy of Vibration.
The circle or sphere is like a frequency.
Many circles create a timbre or combination of frequencies.
In fact, you can get all geometries in the Universe by adding circles together.
The relationship between two geometries is a musical interval relationship.
Spinning or moving geometries are like music flowing.
Then you add energy and you have a whole other level.
Corresponding Sound and Geometry
The primary way to correspond sound and geometry is by the musical interval relationships between various sides of an image. If you have a pyramid with one side that is 3 inches and another side is 2 inches that is a musical 5th, which is a 3:2 relationship (if one note is 100 hertz, the other will be 150 hertz).
Our instructor, Randy Masters has measured the relationship between all the sides of the triangles in the Sri Yantra and created chimes with the same musical interval relationships:
Every Geometrical shape corresponds to a sound mathematically. That means every organ and part of the body have a corresponding timbre based precisely on the shape itself. This also means that every geometrical structure in the entire Universe has a corresponding sound
“In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created.”
– Bruce Rawles
The archetypal patterns of geometry are often called Sacred because they are part of the actual structure of the entire universe.
The kings chamber in the Great Pyramid has very specific chords setup by the resonance created by the distances between each of the walls (Width, Depth, and Height). The Kings Chamber has been designed so when you tone these 3 notes you are transported into higher states of consciousness.
The Golden Spiral is based on the Golden Mean ratio.
This ratio is found throughout all life in nature.
When a person is transmitting love, the heart actually creates a sound that is made up of golden mean ratios.
Cymatics – How sound affects matter.
Light shining through water vibrated by sound
Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, is a science pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). For 14 years he conducted experiments animating inert powders, pastes, and liquids into life-like, flowing forms, which mirrored patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture. What’s more, all of these patterns were created using simple sine wave vibrations (pure tones) within the audible range. So what you see is a physical representation of vibration, or how sound manifests into form through the medium of various materials. Dr. Jenny’s methodology was meticulous, well documented, and totally repeatable.
John Stuart Reid has taken Cymatic imagery to a whole new level. John invented the cymascope that shows geometries in small water droplets being vibrated with sound. Each one of these images are different frequencies vibrating a water droplet.
The truth is that sound creates these dynamic mandala-like pattern in every water molecule of your entire body. And, since your body is 90% water, the effect on your whole system is dramatic. In fact, your entire body (especially your skin) is actually an ear. When you consider the findings of Dr. Emoto, which prove that your intention changes the structure of water, then it becomes clear how sound and intention can create extraordinary changes in your body and consciousness.
The images inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate vibrational matrix.
Ultrasound, Microcurrents, Color, Light and the Quantum Field
Ultrasound is just a very high frequency of sound. Ultrasound can be used to explode things like kidney stones with destructive resonance. It is also being used to resonate certain microtubules in the brain to active higher states of consciousness like Oneness.
Microcurrents are a form of electromagnetism. There is an entire field of microcurrent devices that are using specific frequencies on the body. Anthony Holland and Royal Rife used electromagnetic frequencies to cure many diseases.
Color and Light
Color and light are also electromagnetic energy. Many are using LED’s, lasers, and infrared light on the body.
Each of these levels of energy can create full spectrum of vibration based on the hierarchy of vibration. The healing devices of the future will be working at all levels of vibrations including pure frequencies, timbres, intervals, music and energy. Again…
Smooth flow is the key to creating health and higher consciousness at every level of reality.
Working at all levels of vibration including sound, electromagnetics, light and the quantum field is the most effective.
The more ways you lead a horse to water, the more chances it will drink.
There is such a wide range of technologies in the field. The big difference is between assessment devices versus playback devices. Some do both. There are also devices that do sound, electromagnetics, light and quantum energy. Here are some of the technologies that we offer at the Institute. You can find all the technologies at www.SoundLoungeCenter.com
Voice Analysis programs are based on the idea that everything about you including your divine template of perfection that you were born with and every way that you and society have screwed it up is carried within the notes and harmonics of your voice. Different physical and emotional issues can cause frequencies to drop out. Once you do an analysis you listen to frequencies and notes and tone along with them to get the frequencies back into your system so you have a balance of all frequencies — so energy can flow again.
The Sound Lounge is a chair that has transducers (subwoofer like speakers) mounted inside. The Lounge vibrates the whole body with the bass of the music you are listening to. A key component of the Sound Lounge is that its top layer is made of Memory Foam which forms to the body, thus giving you maximum contact with the vibration. It is very cooshie. Because the Sound Lounge can also be laid flat you can also lay on your stomach and get your belly vibrated. GO DIRECTLY to the SOUND LOUNGES
The Sound Table is a massage table with the transducers mounted on the bottom. The Sound Table vibrates the whole body with the bass of the music you are listening to. The Sound Table is excellent for doing a massage while being vibrated. GO DIRECTLY to the SOUND TABLES
Sound Pillows and Dolphins
The Pillows and Dolphins also have transducers that produce a strong vibration that you can also hug! They can be used on top of the Lounge or Table so you are sandwiched between the two. The effect is that you are completely enveloped in a field of wonderful vibration. You can also use them as a standalone healing and bliss device. The Sound Pillow has stronger vibration than the Sound Dolphin so it is better when playing back music. The Sound Dolphin has more high frequencies which are better for use with the Cymatics Frequency CDs that are played on the body. GO NOW
Bass Pods, Belts and Vests
Localized frequency healing right on the part of the body that needs it the most. The Cymatics Frequency CDs are played through the powerful transducers. No listening required, although you can actually play music through them while listening on headphones (especially on the full Bass Vest). GO NOW
Light and Brain Machines
These devices create amazing colors and geometrical shapes that enhance the music tremendously. Your brain also creates its own amazing colors and geometrical shapes. Extremely helpful for Depression. GO NOW
