The healing effects of music require no second guessing. Listening to relaxing instrumental music can instantly make us feel better and as per scientific research even reduce the effects of illness and dysfuncions including autism, depression, Parkinsons disease and cancer.
We all know about the seven notes of music – Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti that correspond with the 7 tones of C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C used throughout the world. Originating from sacred Gregorian chants these were originally denoted as Ut, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si most notably as per the ‘Great Hymn’ connected to St. John the Baptist that goes as: Ut queant laxis, Resonare fibris, Mira gestorum, Famuli tuorum, Solve polluti, Labii reatum, Sancte Joannes ( translates to “So that Your servants may sing at the top of their voices the wonders of Your acts, and absolve the fault from their stained lips”).
By using the first syllables of Sol-Fa kind, the name SolFeggio is now popularised as the healing tones or frequencies for mind, body and spirit. If we trace the origins of these syllable tones we also find thousands of years old ‘bija mantras’ including those of the seven chakras as per yogic traditions of ancient India that are in close correspondence with the Solfeggio frequencies.
396 hz: Ut queant laxis (It relaxes). This frequency connects with Muladhara or Root chakra and the seed vibration or bija mantra of ‘Lam’ and the colour Red which denotes security, feeling safe, at ease as we let go of all anxiety to ‘be’.
417 hz: Resonare fibris (Vibrate in our fibre). This frequency raises our kundalini through the Svadhishtana or Sacral chakra of passion and sensuality and the seed vibration or bija mantra of ‘Vam’ and the colour Orange to energize us.
528 hz: Mira gestoram (Make Miracles). This frequency helps us manifest our choices magically through our sacred will power or the Manipura or Solar chakra and the seed vibration or bija mantra ‘Ram’ and the colour Yellow to help our light shine.
639 hz: Famuli tuorum (Be of Service). This frequency helps open our heart to give unconditionally through service to God by serving the universe with the help of the Anhata or Heart chakra and the seed vibration or bija mantra ‘Yam’ and the colour Green to help expand our compassion.
741 hz: Solve polluti (Cleanse impurities). This frequency helps in clearing any negativity or misunderstandings through truthful communication with the help of Vishudda or Throat chakra and the seed vibration of bija mantra ‘Ham’ and the colour Blue to help in pure expression.
852 hz: Labii reatum (Silence the lips). This is the frequency of quiet concentration to help us listen and see from within with the help of our Agya chakra or Third Eye and the seed vibration or bija mantra ‘Sham’ and the colour Indigo for intuition and psychic skills.
963 hz: Sancte Iohannes (Sacred Spirit). This frequency stands for God or Divinity and the Holy Spirit that is within all beings to be channeled through the Sahasrara or Crown chakra and the seed vibration or bija mantra ‘Om’ and the colour Violet for spiritual awakening.
In addition we also have frequencies 285 hz corresponsing to the Earth Star chakra that helps us to ‘Ground’ or connect with the solid world, while the frequency 174 hz corresponds to the Soul Star Chakra that helps us ‘Return’ to the Source or our spiritual home of pure light as we come a full circle.
The legendary physicist Nikola Tesla, who pioneered breathroughs in energy generation once said ‘If you only knew the magnificience of 3, 6 and 9, you would have the key to the universe.’ As you can see the Solfeggio frequencies are listed from 396 hz with each numeric digit raised to the next one for all seven frequencies until we reach 963 hz.
The best part is that you can simply listen to these tones on your earphones or play them in the background even as you sleep for deep and powerful healing.
