Creating A Unified Sacred Sound Field
(Excerpted from my book Attunement with Sacred Sound)
This is a powerful healing technique whereby two or three harmonically tuned quartz crystal bowls are used to create a unified sacred sound field with the recipient placed in the middle of the setting. This can be done with vocal toning as well where two or three individuals or small groups tone the designated pitches. A Vesica Pisces is created where the sound waves meet and overlap one another. The one sitting or lying down in the sacred sound vesica may experience profound frequency shifts that may open a portal through which something entirely new may be born in consciousness, such as new revelations, new thoughts and creative ideas, even new patterns of healing and transformation in one’s physical and energetic bodies. This is the magician’s realm of expertise. Sound healing in its finest application.

When a single tone is sounded, it sends out a spherical waveform, as the picture above demonstrates. This waveform creates a “sound field.” When two harmonious tones are sounded simultaneously, their sound fields overlap creating thereby a “third unified field.” This opens a vibrational window referred to as a “Vesica Pisces,” a unified sound field. I am calling this a “Unified Sacred Sound Field.”
The Vesica Pisces is a vibrational portal formed by two overlapping fields of energy. It has been called the “Womb of the Great Mother,” as it serves as a vibrational birth canal for a “third” waveform to come forth that may give rise to new thought and inspiration, leading to new and innovative creative expression.
We can create various unified harmonic sound fields using quartz crystal bowls.
- A “Perfect Fifth” sound field for healing can be created using two bowls that are a fifth apart in their tone. For example an A and E bowl, or an F and C bowl, etc. The colors in these diagrams are not true to the frequencies, but this gives one an idea of how two frequencies overlapping create a unified field with a different tonal quality.
- A more complex sound field is created by using three bowls whose pitches form a harmonious triad. This combination of harmonic sounds is ideal for balancing the endocrine and chakra energy fields. As explained in the chart on page 58, each pitch is assigned to a specific aspect of the sacred energy site with which one is working. Again, these colors are not true to the frequencies. One can get a sense, however, of how different tonal qualities are created by the overlapping sound fields.
The “Law of Three” and the Law of the Octave
Let’s expand a bit on this theme of creating Sacred Sound Fields and explore the creation of a vibrational tetrahedron (pyramid) and the technology at work in the creation of a MerKaBa, all based upon George Gurdjieff’s “Law of Three” and the Enneagram.
American-born spiritual teacher George Gurdjieff (1866 – 1949) first articulated the “Law of Three” in the early twentieth century as the forward driving principle of creation and in what later became known as the “Gurdjieff Work.”
In her scholarly book The Holy Trinity and the LAW OF THREE, Episcopal prelate and author Cynthia Bourgeault explores this principle to profound depth. In reading her book, I realized that this principle is at work in the creation of a vesica pisces and of a Sacred Sound Field. So I felt it important, without getting too technical, to include a consideration of this principle as an appendix to the book. Basically, the principle states that when three creative forces come together a fourth force arises that initiates an ongoing and altogether new creative cycle.
Cynthia writes: “The Law of Three, according to Gurdjieff, together with its companion piece, the Law of Seven, comprises what Gurdjieff calls the foundational “Laws of World Creation and World Maintenance.” The interweaving of these two cosmic laws is depicted in the symbol of the enneagram, whose nine points reveal (to those properly initiated) the direction and energetic dynamism through which the world maintains its forward motion. . . . The Enneagram Symbol
Gurdjieff called the Law of Three “The Law of World Creation,” and its real purpose is to show how new arisings – that is, new phenomena, new worlds, new outcomes, new possibilities, new “octaves” (to introduce a particularly important piece of Work terminology) – come into being. The law is all about creating new playing fields in an ongoing dynamism of manifestation. It is, according to Gurdjieff, “a law whose consequences always become the cause of other consequences.”
When we focus on the new “something” that has come into being through the interaction of the three forces, we can see that it is not merely a continuation of a sequence; it is a whole different level.
A perfect example of this law at work is demonstrated in the creation of a song. As we saw earlier on in our consideration of the principles of Sacred Sound, we have the three aspects of harmony, melody and rhythm, which may be seen as forces that move the creative process along, that come together to create the “threefold song” or the “Song of the Absolute,” or any song for that matter. Once the song is born through the vesica provided by the three forces of harmony, melody and rhythm, it takes on a life of its own, perhaps to inspire the creation of other songs, or simply to stir something in the heart of the singer or the listener that moves them perhaps toward a romantic interlude with another person that may lead even further to a marriage and a family. An entirely new state arises which is not a continuation of the previous generative state, but rather one of many possible “new playing fields in an ongoing dynamism of manifestation,” as Gurdjieff describes the outcome.
I will continue sharing this excerpt from my book in my next post, expanding the consideration to include Gurdjieff’s “Law of Seven.” Thank you for listening to my blogging as I explore the vast field of subtle energy healing. As always, I welcome your comments. Until my next post,
Be love. Be loved
