A Presentation at the Attunement Summit of June 19, 2021
Resonance is easier experienced than explained. I think we all know from experience what it is, so perhaps we could explore some of the implications of resonance as they relate to attunement, and do some experiential exercises.
This Biblical passage speaks to the dynamic of resonance: “The spirit of this world comes and finds nothing in me” — because the Master had no strings attached to this world that would resonate with the coarse vibrations of man’s world at the time.
Understanding Harmonic Resonance
Everything has a certain frequency at which it vibrates. This is known as an object’s resonant frequency. Some objects have two or more resonant frequencies, just as we have not one, but several endocrine and chakras centers that resonate differently.
When sound or light waves, which have their own resonant frequency, hit an object, it will lead to harmonic resonance if that frequency corresponds to the resonant frequency of the object.
When that happens, they are tuned to one another; therefore, both of them will sync together. They entrain.
Sometimes, in order for harmonic resonance to occur, the amplitude of the vibration of an object must increase due to the corresponding vibrations of the other object.
(This has implications and application in the dynamics at work during attunement.)
Imagine that you’re a clock and the universe is also a clock. If you are in tune and your frequencies match, you will start ticking together through harmonic resonance.
The Chakra’s Emitting Tones
Each chakra has its frequency of vibration, sound, color, and symbol to which it is tuned. When it is balanced, cleansed, and energized, then the chakra is in harmony and plays its most beautiful melody, emitting inherent vibrations.
Many aspects of life can affect these chakra frequencies and ruin the harmony, such as chaotic sounds, stress, and unhealthy thoughts and emotions.
On the other hand, things like certain people’s voices, beautiful music, positive mantras, and the vibrational energy of colors and precious stones can help to bring our chakra frequencies back into harmonic resonance.
Entrainment occurs when one rhythmic vibrating object resonates and synchronizes with another object — demonstrated by one explorer who put several Big Ben clocks with swinging pendulums in a room together. In the morning he discovered they were all ticking and swinging together in sync.
In a TED talk Judie Diamond sent to me recently, Dr. Lee Bartel, who works with honey bees, tells the story about a cricket who chirps in sync with a squeaky fan belt on a piece of machinery in his shop. He goes on to explain how he uses sound to entrain brain waves and body cells to 40 Hz, which he discovered affected symptomatic improvement in patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia, even fibromyalgia. He explains how 40 Hz creates Gamma waves in the brain by way of entrainment. This is equivalent to the low E on a piano.
Gamma rays are right on the edge of the electromagnetic spectrum between x-ray radiation and light. They are given off by stars, and by radioactive substances. They are extremely high frequency waves, and carry a large amount of energy. They pass through most materials, and are quite difficult to stop – you need lead or concrete in order to block them out. They are used to kill cancer cells, which, unlike healthy cells, cannot repair themselves once damaged by gamma rays. There is an implication here relating to the impact stars and heavenly bodies radiate vibrations that resonate within our own body-mind-spirit continuum. There is a very high frequency available to us that, when attuned to, can raise the vibrational frequency of cellular oscillations. It is the spirit of the Creators’ world.
Resonance occurs in music. For example, the musical pitch F, when sounded, sets in motion the overtones and undertones A and C, along with an infinite number of other overtones and undertones.
Resonance also occurs in the vibrational terrain of the heart and the mind. For example, when someone speaks, the words convey meaning and intention, both of which are vibrational in nature. When such words are heard by a listener, “heart strings” and “mindsets” are struck and resonate with the words of the speaker, along with the subliminal intention they convey.
Resonance is happening when we laugh, and tear up. We have a “funny or silly bone” that resonates with the tone of a joke or comedian’s act — as well as a tender place that is touched by a beautiful scene, or an act of compassion and extraordinary kindness and generosity by someone.
Just think of the scene of Tim Conway and Harvey Korman on the Carol Burnett Show in the dental office, in which Tim accidentally stabs himself with the Novocain syringe paralyzing his arm and leg. How many are smiling or laughing? That’s resonance.
Sound-based language has an immediate resonant effect and impact upon the vibrational terrain of human activity without mental interpretation. Music is a prime example of sound-based language; it’s a universal language. The Aramaic, when spoken, is another good example of sound-based language. It’s the language that Jesus spoke with the peasants.
The Aramaic Prayer of Jesus has emerged from out of the past and been revived and set to music and danced to. I’ve learned to articulate it and it was quite easy to wrap my tongue around it. I frequently say the Aramaic prayer during an attunement session. Here is a rendition of the prayer by the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble. (Be sure to listen to the music after the prayer.)
English translation of the Aramaic Lord’s Prayer
Oh Birther! Father-Mother of the Cosmos,
Focus your light within us. Create your reign of unity now.
Your one desire then acts with ours, As in all light, so in all forms.
Grant what we need each day in bread and insight.
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold of others’ guilt.
Don’t let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From You is born all ruling will, the power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all, from age to age it renews.
Truly – power to these statements – may they be the ground
From which all our actions grow. Amen.
RESONANCE IN OUR ATTUNEMENT WORK
PREMESIS: The Seven Spirits named by Uranda are, in essence, vibrational frequencies—music, in other words—inaudible music composed and orchestrated by the invisible light, the Light of Love, the true Music of the Spheres. This is the nature of the Chakra as well. They are energy vortices that emit tones, which I’ve discovered harmonize with the tones of the endocrine centers.
The seven vibrational, or spiritual, essences manifesting and orchestrating the biochemical functions of the seven endocrine glands, nourishing the glands themselves, are sensitive to audible sound and visible light and color, and respond to such by the principle of resonance.
It is my conviction that the “Spirit” of each endocrine center is invoked and summoned forth by sound vibrations based on the principle of resonance. That invocation is partly in response to the musical tones of the Chakras.
I firmly believe that this is why and how we enjoy beautiful music, which is sometimes capable of lifting us into a state of rapturous ecstasy. For me it is God listening and enjoying the music through me. Or, rather, I am God enjoying beautiful music. The endocrine glands produce their hormonal chemistry that shapes how we feel physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as we listen to music that resonates in our soul, heard with our ears, as well as with our Chakras.
APPLICATION OF SACRED SOUND:
As many of you know, I work with sacred sound in my attunement service. I have found that sound may be used to create a carrier wave for spirit and intention. I first became aware of this early in my experience of sharing attunement. The energy in the current resonated in my vocal chords and I had the urge to hum. When I did, the texture of the energy became smooth like silk. From that experience, I went on to explore the use of sound in energy healing.
Each endocrine gland resonates to a specific frequency or pitch, starting with the pineal gland that resonates to F# and ending with the gonads that resonate to C natural—according to my own perceptions.
The Chakras also resonate to musical pitches, according to Tantric Yoga traditions handed down, which I’ve discovered are the tonic tones that give rise to the corresponding Major Fifth harmonic frequency, or pitch, of the spiritual energy focused and expressing in and through the endocrine glands.
For example, the Crown Chakra resonates to a B natural pitch, which is the tonic tone – the Do – of the Pineal gland’s harmonic Major Fifth tone F#. (do B, mi D#, sol F#)
For a full list of musical intervals between the Chakras and the Endocrine centers, email me and I will be more than happy to send you a chart from my book Attunement With Sacred Sound, along with a copy of my notes. My book is also available at a cost of $32 plus postage and handling.
OVERTONES, UNDERTONES AND CYMATICS
Keep in mind that overtones and undertones are set in motion by these pitches as well as they play upon a vast array of tissue cells throughout the body temple.
I can only imagine the cymatic configurations created in the atomic substance that make up the fabric of our anatomy and physiology. Mending of broken parts and renewal of old parts take place. New earth is thusly created.
Cymatics, as you are likely aware, is the phenomenon of sacred geometrical shapes and patterns that sound frequencies produce in matter, such as water.
Our bodies being composed largely of water, some 85% of it, one can only envision the impact sound has on and in them. Here is a clip of Anna-Maria Hefele demonstrating polyphonic overtone chant.
MY PERSONAL ENERGETIC HYGENE
It is important, as I approach another soul to offer my service, that my energetic atmosphere be clean and buoyant, and that my presence in our shared field is the presence of Love. As I identify with the Attunement Current, with Love, as what I AM, I can rest assured that I am offering a pure tone for my client’s energetic body to resonate with. Whatever is dominant in my own personal emotional and mental lens — to use one of Lloyd’s useful metaphors — will find resonant substance in the capacities of another. This is the basis, as we know, upon which response is given rise to radiation. As Paul Price has often reminded us, we bring the essence and quality of our momentary living to our attunement altar.
Resonance plays a large part in the dynamic at play in attunement. One may simply enter the place of stillness, in Rumi’s agenda-less field of non-judgment of right and wrong, in order to assure that only the pure Tone of Love is reverberating in one’s heart and mind before extending hands and entering another’s personal and sacred space.
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity nor sworn deceitfully.” (Psalm 24: 3-4)
Mother Earth’s natural heartbeat rhythm is the frequency of 7.83 Hz, also known as the “Schumann Resonance”.
The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth‘s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. (Wikipedia)
Schumann Resonances were first documented by Nikola Tesla in 1899. A German physicist named Winfried Schumann studied them extensively and began trying to measure them in the 1950s, and got his name attached to them (although accurate measurements weren’t possible until the 60s—and Tesla’s numbers were right from the start.) The resonances arise from lightning storms—of which there are around 2000 occurring planet-wide at any given moment—exciting the cavity of air between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. Acoustically speaking, life on Earth arises and exists within a room whose boundaries are these. Due to the ongoing nature of the storms, this torus-shaped expanse that encases us is forever singing, like a wine glass forever flicked by the finger of fate. The fundamental frequency of that song, the do of its tonality, is, on average with slight variations, 7.83 Hz: the fundamental Schumann Resonance. (That’s about 8 trips around the planet per second.)
To say that the fundamental Schumann Resonance has an influence is an understatement: all of life on Earth—including us and our thoughts and feelings—arises within it and its harmonics. That sounds like a world do if I’ve ever heard one—and that’s the frequency associated with C and the Root Chakra in the Muzoracle system. (While 7.83 Hz is far below the range of our hearing, we can hear—and certainly feel—the resonance two octaves higher, at 31.32 Hz; three octaves higher than that we find our middle C at 250.56 Hz.) (Muzoracle.com)
Everything from our brain waves and biorhythms to our states of consciousness are directly correlated to the Earth’s frequencies. The Schumann resonance has been steady at 7.83Hz until three years ago when it began to accelerate to somewhere in the 15 to 25Hz levels. The Earth is rapidly shifting her vibration. (Google Search) Ω
