Glancing through last month’s issue of Word, I was inspired by its feature on music. I immediately thought of the Fibonacci Sequence, the seemingly magical fractal equation that can be found in compositions throughout nature, art and music. The spiraling pattern created by the sequence can be observed in the smallest to the largest objects in the natural world.

Music, itself, is also magical. It possesses the alchemical ability to transport us back in time, to change our mood and to heal us.


Sound Healing


According to holistic healing pioneer, Dr. John Diamond, “The basic purpose of music is to be therapeutic, to raise the life energy of the listener.” Music affects us in subtle yet profound ways, touching our subconscious and altering our state of being.


Our meridian energy system responds to sounds well above our audible threshold. Simply put, our bodies hear sounds we are unable to hear with our ears.


Noise stresses the body whereas natural sounds have the ability to raise our life energy and thereby enhance our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical state.


Sound healing is not a New Age phenomenon, the art and science of vibrational sound healing dates back thousands of years. In recent times, the discovery of the medical benefits of ultrasound treatments has lead to an expansion in the application of sound healing therapies.


Modern astrophysicist, Trinh Xuan Thuan, states, “If the cosmos is vast it is by no means silent. Nature delights in continuously sending us her notes of music.” It is believed that sound has structured the universe and, as such, sound waves are responsible for the structure of everything we see around us including every bone, muscle and organ in our body.


Get in Tune


Dr. Deepak Chopra notes, “The body is held together by sound — the presence of disease indicates that some sounds have gone out of tune.” When the body frequencies are in harmony, the body is healthy, when the body frequencies are out of harmony, disease occurs. Sound healing therapies help to tune the different chakras, meridians, organs and glands of the body, restoring them to their unique natural frequencies. When the body’s frequencies are balanced and the rhythm or flow of energy re-established, the natural healing processes of the body can take place.


The sounds that we hear carry an energy vibration that affects us in different ways. Some sounds can be uplifting, others calming, while others may have a negative effect on us. Music is like medicine for our body, mind and soul choose it wisely.
