The effect of sound on matter.
Today researchers are proving what ancient people have known for thousands of years. That is, our body responds to vibration. Every cell, neuron, and organ in the body resonates with its own frequency, creating a beautiful symphony of sound.
The string theory first introduced in the late ‘60’s has today become a popular field of study.
The theory claims that everything in our universe, the planets, the stars, and the suns, even the subatomic particle, is made up of microscopic strands of energy. These strands of energy are very, very small, thin and elastic; to give you an idea of the size, they are estimated to be about a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a centimetre. They can twist, wiggle, wobble, and join each other, and they can break apart.
Everything You See is Made up of Energy
Everything you see in this life, everything you can touch, taste, smell, hear, and even the words you speak is made up from these tiny strings of energy. What makes them different from each other is the way the string vibrates. A string that vibrates one way is an electron with all of its specific properties of mass and charge. Another string, when vibrated, has the characteristics of a photon, the particle that makes up light. So, what separates wood from steel, flesh from bone, paper from plastic is the frequency at which the energy is vibrating.
If all matter is composed of vibrating strands of energy, then so are we. Our bodies are literally a symphony of strings. Our cells, neurons, tissue and organs vibrate and resonate the sound of life. Billions of frequencies are interacting with each other and resonating within us. These vibrations are constantly interacting with the external vibrations in our environment.
Vibrations Fill The World Around Us
In a world where vibration reigns the greatest, the sounds and vibrations that fill the world around us can influence and even change the vibrations within us, affecting our health and well-being for better or worse. This is also true of the vibrations within us affecting the environment outside of us.
String theory is not the origin of such ideas; only recently has this theory proved what has been around for hundreds of years. The ancient sages, philosophers, and teachers of many cultures were fully aware of vibration and energy flow principles- and the idea that sound can influence health and well-being.
Pythagoras BC 570 – BC 495 Greek philosopher and mathematician
It is said that Pythagoras used music to heal the body and emotions. His understanding of vibrating strings led him to discover the relationship between the tone and the ratio of the strings.
He said that the movement, rhythm and vibration of every atom and every planet in the universe produce a particular sound.
Pythagoras believed that music contributed greatly to health when used correctly. He called his method “musical medicine”.
His followers would sing certain chants in unison. Other times his followers employed music as medicine. Certain melodies and harmonies were composed to cure the passions of the soul-emotions like anger and aggression.
The concepts of vibrating energy supporting the modern string theory give the foundation to what we know today as energy medicine or vibrational medicine.
In his book Vibrational Medicine, Dr Richard Gerber defines vibrational medicine as medicine directed toward an understanding of energy and vibration and how they interact with molecular structure and organismic balance.
Evidence of Vibrational Energy
The question is, how do we know what the ancient practitioner and philosophers were saying about sound is true? Is there any evidence today that sound and vibration can affect matter or interact with the molecular structure of our bodies to stimulate healing? And if there is, can we measure their effects?
Here is some compelling and interesting evidence of how sound vibrations affect the material world.
