We are all hearing more and more about energy healing, quantum physics, and neural plasticity. The basis for these concepts is that everything is energy and in a constant state of vibration.
Everything is sound! Electrons are in constant movement, as are the planets in the universe. As everything is in a constant state of vibrational movement, it is all creating sound as well.
Sound is a wave measured in hertz (Hz) which is its frequency. Low (slow,deep) or hi (fast) frequencies are determined by the number of Hz.
At birth, our hearing can range from 16 Hz to 20,000 Hz, which diminishes with exposure to loud sounds, or age.
Different sound frequencies influence different brainwave activity.
Alpha waves (8-13 Hz) are usually associated with daydreaming or meditation. Theta waves (4-7 Hz) creates a state of deep meditation and sleep.
Not all sounds are auditory. Sounds below our audible range are called infrasound, and above our audible range are called ultrasound.
Our bodies and organ systems have their own resonant frequencies, unique to the individual.
In holistic healthcare, if a person is not well, a part of their body is not in harmony, internal vibrations are off kilter, resulting in illness or disease.
When we restore the body’s resonant frequency, the result is a balance within our physical, emotional, and spiritual being.
We often use vibration terms that refer to how we feel. For example: “I don’t resonate with that person”. Or, “This place has a good vibe”.
