Learn the Benefits of Sound Healing with Tuning Forks

We’re surrounded by sound, and yet, how much of the sound we hear and feel are actually beneficial and, well, HEALING? If you’re plugged in, what are you really plugged into? Chaos and disharmony in the form of sound waves have an effect on the body that interferes with growth, healing, and regeneration of healthy cells and tissues. How do we know which sounds are  disharmonious and which sounds benefit us? In addition, how do sounds HEAL? As a practitioner working with energy healing modalities, becoming attuned to healing frequencies can enhance and accelerate healing for you as well as your clients.

Healing Sounds

My favorite healing frequencies, the solfeggio 6-tone scale, show a mathematical relationship – an expression of harmony with which all living things resonate. Sound is measured in Hertz (Hz). In the table below, see if you can discover the numerical relationships between each of the solfeggio frequencies.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear

417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)

639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

741 Hz – Expression/Solutions

852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

These harmonious frequencies can actually be seen (sound becomes visible) when various substances exposed to these sounds vibrate. The small crystals of salt or sugar, for example, begin to move and form patterns on a flat surface. Dr. Hans Jenny showed in a process he  called cymatics that pure tone vibrations create these beautiful patterns, not only in the lab, but also in nature. We see these patterns everywhere; the arrangement of petals in a flower, waves washing up on shore, the formation of coral reefs in response to whale songs, and many more. Chaotic or non-pure tone sounds elicit no patterns.

We can then relate the reformation of broken bones, the development of muscle tissue, and even the structure of DNA to the possibility that certain sounds heal. Though there’s much more to include in this short article about solfeggio frequencies, cymatics, and healing, I’d like to now suggest that experience is the best teacher. Yet, as we continue to be “plugged in” to electronic devices, we find ourselves not in-tune with the healing sounds of nature. Here’s where we, as healers and practitioners, can make a huge difference for not only ourselves but also for our clients. Bring on the tuning forks!

What are the Benefits of Using Tuning Forks as a Practice?

The Natural Therapies Certification Board offers accreditation for many healing modalities, including sound healing. As a stand-alone healing modality, a practitioner has the option to pursue training as a Vibrational Sound Practitioner with continuing education as a Vibrational Sound Teacher. In some states, CEUs may be accepted in the field of sound healing to apply toward re-licensing of other modalities such as body work. (Check with your licensing board for more information on what they accept for CEUs). Of course there are many benefits beyond certification. Here are a few:

  • Single-tone harmonious frequencies enhance the effectiveness of other healing modalities
  • Effortlessly integrate sound with Reiki, massage, hypnosis, etc.
  • Use as a stand-alone healing modality with superior effectiveness and client results
  • Increases uniqueness in your field
  • Helps raise your personal vibrational levels
  • Helps healing in your own etheric field
  • Helps create a sacred space
  • Supports energetic hygiene
  • Helps balance your inner vortex
  • Releases unseen blocks in the body
  • Heightens intuitive awareness and psychic abilities
  • Experience minimal to no strain on the physical body
  • Easy to learn with effective results
  • Creates a nice sound bath
  • Attunes you to go beyond the physical and energetic limitations of other modalities
  • Helps you work as a shepherd for transformation
  • Offers a unique method for targeted healing work
  • Optimizes wholeness on the physical, emotional and spiritual plains
  • Assists you in working with ease and grace
  • Effortlessly tap into higher realms of consciousness

The Art of Teaching Reiki

Reiki, hands-on and distance healing through the wisdom and training brought to us by Mikao Usui in 1922 has grown into a healing modality available to everyone. Receiving a Reiki attunement is a simple, yet sacred practice through which energy flows from the Divine, through the capable, intentional hands of the Reiki Master, to the willing recipient. In many ways, the process is very simple. Knowing what to do, which Reiki symbols to use, where, how, and when, complete the attunement process.

Is that all there is to doing Reiki?

Not really. The attunement process – becoming attuned to any level of Reiki, including Reiki Master – just opens the door for energy to flow. The next steps involve training and developing sensitivity to the feel of energy as well as intuitive guidance on how to use Reiki. These sensitivities and skills come with practice and mentoring, feedback on technique, and guidance on a vast number of situations new students may encounter.

What’s the difference between Reiki Master and Reiki Master Teacher?

Reiki Master is an intermediate level of training that gives the practitioner three Reiki symbols and the ability to perform Reiki attunements as well as healing, and self-attunements. Becoming attuned as Reiki Master is indeed an important step displaying a practitioner’s commitment to the practice and lifestyle of spiritual healing. Reiki Master is not and end, but rather a new beginning. Newly attuned Reiki Masters move into the world with new confidence and new direction, or sense of purpose. It’s truly wonderful!

Reiki Master Teacher is an art that has been vastly under-valued and overlooked as a necessary part of bringing more competent Reiki students into the world. Why? Learning how to DO Reiki is different from learning how to TEACH Reiki. Teaching involves a different set of skills; ways to demonstrate techniques, writing curriculum to meet the growing need for integrative skills, spiritual mentoring, coaching skills, personal energetic hygiene, and an understanding of the laws surrounding energy healing modalities are all a part of Reiki Master Teaching know-how.
