Sound wave is the sensation preserved by the sense of hearing. Something that you can hear from your ears. Every sound wave has the base behind it, which is called Vibration. Sound reaches to human ear in the form of waves.
It is said that before there were any stars or galaxies, 13.8 billion years ago, our universe was just a ball of hot plasma — a mixture of electrons, protons, and light. Sound waves shook this infant universe,triggered by minute, or quantum, and fluctuations happening just moments after the big bang that created our universe. Hence, sound is the source of creation.
A sound wave is a mechanical wave which requires a medium or object, such as water or air, to travel through. In fact, a sound is a form of energy resulting due to the vibrations of molecules of matter, and you hear the sound when the sound waves pass through a medium to your ears.
If you think about ocean waves, you will visualize the water moving – the wave is moving the water. Sound waves move matter in a similar manner. “Sound moves in waves, and in turn creates fields.Particular sounds are passed into, out of, and through the body through molecules, which act as transfer points for information. A molecule can literally take on the vibration of an initial pulse and pass this vibration on to its neighbors, which is why sound can shape and change the body and its fields.”
UNIVERSE = Uni – One, Verse – Song
This world is One song.
NIKOLA TESLA SAID – IF YOU WANT TO FIND THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE, THINK IN TERMS OF ENERGY, FREQUENCY AND VIBRATION
Every molecule is vibrating at a particular frequency. An interesting fact is that when a molecule gets encountered by the larger frequency than its own frequency, it gets destroyed. Here, we have doctor ‘Royal Rife’ who treated the cancer patients by using this phenomenon of breaking the infected cells by higher vibrations and the results were successfully shown.
There is another example in the using of laser, for cutting /breakage of kidney stones by using sound waves are successfully implanted.
USE OF SOUND WAVE IN DIFFERENT CULTURES AS THERAPEUTIC TREATMENT
In the Tibetan Culture, usage of SOUND WAVES and the singing bowls for healing is a very popular and famous tool for meditation and spirituality. They treat the disorders of mind and brain just by using different frequencies. They have big drums and trumpets to move big stones by chanting specific sounds at higher ranges.
In Sanatan Dharma, the Samveda is the Veda of melodies and songs. All ancient Vedas talk about the impact of sound waves and melody as a process of healing.
The power of mantras, specific instruments, sound base rituals by our ancient civilizations are purely scientific. In late centuries, the technology of carving and levitating big stones and rocks just by high vibration sounds also exists.
DEPTH OF SOUND AND INDIAN MUSIC:
The Indian classical music is a good example for understanding depth of sounds. One can evoke different emotions just by singing the syllable “Aa” . The beautiful ragas are designed to create the environment of different moods. In the ancient courtyards, the legends of music were invited to even control the climate like Tansen Raga was used.
BUT WHAT CAN WE LEARN BY READING ALL THESE POWERS OF SOUND?
As we discussed above, creation is because of vibration. Hence, we are the small parts of creation within which there are billions of small cells. Our negative emotions take us at a lower frequency. When we are sad, confused, tired, sleepless, our cells vibrate at a lower level.
The emotions of positivity when we are happy, confident and peaceful take us at a higher frequency. Our cells have a higher level of vibration. When we laugh the vibration multiplies, that is why laughter is considered so therapeutic by medical sciences too.
YOGA AND SOUND VIBRATIONS
Now coming to yogic perspective, there are many yoga asanas and Pranayams that are based on sound waves, and vibrations. This has a healing and therapeutic impact on the doer. An example is BHRAMRI PRANAYAM .
The sound is taken out like humming of a bee. In this pranayama you inhale and while exhaling you chant ‘Hmmmmmmmm’ by locking your teeths. This vibrates the whole area above the chest . Through this, the cells of brain get stimulated and neurons get activated to work in high frequency. This helps in healing sleep disabilities, depression, anxiety.
THE MOST POWERFUL SOUND- AUM
CHANT OF “AUM” – Aum is made with three syllables A+ U+ M.The chanting of AUM is extremely beneficial and has its own significance in various things. Chanting of AUM , has many benefits and is the essence of each alternative therapy.
The sound of A in AUM, is the vibration in the lower part of stomach and hence results in treating the diseases in stomach constipation, ulcers and IBS.
The sound of U in AUM is the vibration in chest, hence results in treating the diseases in chest like asthama , bronchitis and heart problems.
The sound of M in AUM is the vibration in throat and the area above throat, hence results in treating diseases like Sinus, tooth cavities , thyroid , depression , headaches , migraines.
The chanting of AUM can be done in any way. You can chant them separately to treat a particular problem with the set of 21 chants .
