How Sound and Vibrations Impact Us, and How They Heal or Hurt
There is so much that we don’t yet know about the internal workings of our bodies – particularly about the way that our body responds at a cellular level to stimuli. While ancient healing systems and spiritual orders have been telling us about sound healing for centuries, the scientific community has not really listened. Now even modern research is examining how sound and vibrations impact us. They are now telling us how we can naturally and easily make some simple changes to our lives that have the potential to bring us huge benefits.

Sound heals in various ways.

I have been speaking to a number of complementary healers who have been working to find natural cures to disease and pain. I spoke to Jonathan and Andi Goldman in a recent two-part episode about their research and work in sound healing. For decades now, they have been researching the benefits of humming and the specific use of tuning forks to remove disease and ease pain. They have been helping and inspiring people all over the world to take charge of their health by making some simple changes, and practicing easy but hugely beneficial habits.
My friend and fellow health seeker Chad speaks about the work of Masaru Emoto, the famous Japanese author. His experiments showed how certain positive sounds, or vibration of positive and affirming words impacted the patterns in water. With positive sounds, the water particles took on a variety of sacred geometry shapes that were beautiful to look at. With harsh or grating sounds, or words like hate or fear or fury, there was no geometric shape whatsoever.
In the famous book The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird we learn about how sounds impact plants. Happy, encouraging and loving sounds are seen to help plants grow and thrive while negative energies and stressful sounds can do the opposite. This is based on the understanding that sounds impact and change patterns of water. The fact is that the human body is about 80% water and it then follows that sounds do have an impact on us at the cellar level.

How you can use sound therapy.

Jonathan and Andi Goldman recommend humming in specific ways to help the body heal, and even to soothe pain in specific areas of the body. I have noted the positive impacts of humming in my own life. Humming is something that we can do while driving or while doing mundane tasks like doing or putting away the dishes and so on. Jonathan and Andi demonstrate how tuning forks, humming and other sound therapies can be used to target problem areas in the body.
Chad tells me about the soundtracks of didgeridoos and singing bowls that are available on Spotify or Apple iTunes and how this offers such a spiritual experience for him. Simply sitting in a quiet spot with the eyes closed, listening to and focusing on these sounds can be relaxing and uplifting at the same time!
Chad and I discuss all of this and how it is possible to just adopt these simple actions and make them a part of life; make them a habit that comes naturally. Then it becomes an automatic ritual – just a really beneficial part of life. Join us in this episode to know more – this could just be as life-changing for you as it has been for me!
