more on healing with music!

A bit more on the subject!!!

"Through the process of entrainment, sound can transform negative, repressed emotions into a state of psychological equanimity that has direct and immediate effects on our physiology. Sonic entrainment can also restore harmony between our innermost selves - our essence and the universe, thus re-awakening our spiritual consciousness."

"When properly mobilized, sound can specifically entrain the human organism toward the greater harmony and homeostasis that it requires to remain vibrant and to regenerate after injury or illness. The properties of sound medicine -entrainment, harmony and homeostasis- represent the rational AND spiritual foundation for a new movement in the healing arts and sciences."

"Sound and music can help you develop your own intuitions which, in turn, can help you with your own healing. The human capacity for intuition and its effects on the body, on relationships, and on one's environment is not grounded on the occult or esoterica, but rather in hard scientific investigation by some of the great minds of physics and philosophy."

I thought that you might enjoy this info...about how music can be used in the medical field!


From "The Sounds of Healing," by: Dr. Mitchell Gaynor:

"Music can have a powerful salutary effect on our cardio-vascular, immune, and nervous systems, not to mention our emotional and spiritual selves."

"Sounds permeate our systems, resonating with our essence, so that inner chaos, conflict, and dissonance seem almost immediately to be transformed into harmony."

"I believe unequivocally - and I've seen for myself the proof - that the use of sound is among the most powerful modalities ever embraced by twentieth-century practitioners."

To begin a blog on the power of music...I decided to just leave a few miscelaneous tidbits of some ways music has been used in history.

History and Healing With Music

By the time Egyptians built the Pyramids and sphinxes, it had organized choruses of 12,000 voices and orchestras of 6,000 instruments. Many believe that the use of directed and controlled sound, helped them accomplishedthe heaviest labor of the building of the pyramids.

Babylonian tradition of astronomy and numerology…they put the zodiac in a circle and divided it into 360 degrees, The ancient Chinese did this, but eliminated the Pythagorean coma so the 12 fifths fit in to this circle.

Music is a force to alter civilizations. Several years before the American Revolution, patriotic and freedom songs were popular.

In the Bible David played the harp to lift Saul’s depression. Egyptian papyri over 2,6000 years old refer to incantations as cures for infertility and rheumatic pain.

The ancient Greeks believed music had the power to heal the body and soul. They used the flute and the lyre for gout and sciatica. It is said that that Alexander the Great had his sanity restored by music played on the lyre.

There is a Greek saying, "men have a song as a physician for pain." Pythagorus used incantation, melodies and rhythms to cure diseases of the body and mind.
