Music makes you feel – it interacts with your emotions. Everyone has snapped their fingers to a lively beat and relaxed to the soothing sound of the ocean. Sound waves interact with our feelings, which are energy. Sound waves don’t isolate our emotions and ignore all the rest of the waves in our bodies. Sound waves interact with all of the waves nearby. That is simply science!
Sound waves interact with your brain waves, physical body, and the environment. This opens up a whole new way of looking at our world. It is already proven that sound can entrain our brain waves, taking them to alpha, beta, theta, and delta ranges. How significant is this? At specific brainwaves, our bodies produce healthy chemicals and repair our bodies. At other brain waves, one can quit smoking with greater ease. In short, controlling a population’s brain waves shapes their behavior.
We are vulnerable if the sound is used to control us without our knowledge, as it allows us to be puppets. Sound can also be used as a weapon and can slowly make a person sick. Sound can help or harm us. We must be aware of the power of sound - for our good.
How about our physical health? Does sound impact that? Researcher Sharry Edwards demonstrated that if she plays the frequency associated with the supplement, niacin, in which the listener’s face flushes - without taking the pill. This makes sense as we ingest sounds in our ears, skin, and through resonance. Perhaps sound interferes with neurotransmitters or other signals in the body. Sound is invasive! With Sharry Edward’s NanoVoice software, a Fast Fourier Transformer breaks your voice into component pitches, letting you see how your voice changes after taking a pill or eating. This shows the connection between what you eat and the frequencies in your body. We are aware that “we are what we eat,” but now we have a new window to approach health, as “We are what we listen to.”
One might question why people haven’t noticed this phenomenon before. Sound waves usually are subtle energy with tiny influences. We hear different sounds; many of them cancel each other out. We have to be patient to see their effects and be looking for them. Think of running water on a rock. Of course, the water runs off, and the stone remains the same. However, after gazing at the Grand Canyon, it becomes clear that the pliable water flow does change the rock- slowly but surely, the water creates carved mountains. And so it is with the tiny waves of sound. Slowly, but continually they shape and mold us, the relentless impact of the waves, just like ocean waves, smooth small pebbles into sand.
The use of sacred and uplifting music impacts us all far more than we ever dreamed. Right along with proper nutrition is good music – for a better tomorrow! We are what we eat, but equally, we are what we listen to!
