Solfeggio Frequencies are a set of six tones that were used by the church many years ago and are just now coming back into use. Looking at the definitions of the original syllables of the Solfeggio used in the “Hymn to St. John the Baptist,” we can determine that these powerful frequencies can be used on your client to liberate the energy of guilt and fear, undo situations and facilitate change, leading to transformation and miracles, allowing connection with others, deepen spiritual relationships, express one’s truth and awaken intuition.
Massage therapists can incorporate these powerful tones into their healing space via special music or custom-made tuning forks that can be used in the etheric field, auditory system and even on the physical body via acupressure points and stimulating meridian pathways. Through sacred ratios, Solfeggio Frequencies create vibrational pathways to higher dimensions that connect universal energy with the client’s anatomical energy for self-healing.
According to Candice Pert, Ph.D., in Molecules of Emotion, energy and vibration go all the way to the molecular level. She states we have 70 different receptors on the molecules and when vibration and frequency reaches that far, they begin to vibrate.
Moreover, Pert observed, “as they begin to vibrate, they sort of touch each other, and tickle each other, and they play and mount each other.” It’s this whole energetic dance ritual, at the cellular level, that opens the chromosomes and exposes the DNA to the frequencies. When we do toning, drumming, chanting or tuning forks—it can be a way to direct energy for transformational purposes.
John Harvey Kellogg, M.D., author of The Art of Massage: A Practical Manual for the Nurse, the Student and the Practitioner, said, “Vibration … is the procedure consisting of fine vibratory, or shaking, movements communicated to the body … and may be applied to the body in a variety of ways.” He also wrote that profound effects may be produced by the application of vibration and that it is useful in cases in which stimulation to the muscle or nerves is needed to achieve your desired results.
It’s all about assisting other people. It’s not to be their healer, but to assist them in knowing who they are and connecting with their true Source. It is about providing an atmosphere of nonjudgment, a sacred space, for the purpose of healing themselves.
