Strings Vibrate to Tell Us a Healing Connection
What do fifth-century B.C. Pythagoreans have in common with modern, state-of-the art cosmologists and physicists? In a word – strings! For the ancient Greek Pythagoreans, it was the lyre string; modern scientists postulate infinitesimally small strings as the ultimate building blocks of the universe.
The Greeks found that the tone of a plucked lyre string corresponded to its length. Changing the length of the vibrating string changed the tone in a precise way; double the length and the tone goes down by a full octave; reduce the length by two-thirds, the note changes by a fifth. Thus, we discover the laws of music and harmonics and reduce them to mathematics. The Pythagoreans believe music and math form the basis of everything.
The Pythagoreans extended this thinking in attempt to explain the entire universe. They partially succeeded, but ultimately failed in their attempts.
Modern Scientists and Their Theory of Strings
Modern scientists now feel that they have the theory-of-everything, based on incredibly small strings. These vibrating strings are the fundamental unit of all matter and energy. When a string vibrates in a certain way, an electron results; change the vibration of this same string and another particle appears – the electron changes into a neutrino. As with the plucked lyre, it is the string that is fundamental; the tone (in the musical example) or the subatomic particle, arise from the way that the string is vibrating.
Modern string theory also had its roots in mathematics. The proposed strings are far too small to ever view directly. Their existence was slowly recognized as the theory of strings solved formerly impossible problems in physics. The beauty of the theory is that we eliminate the numerous “fundamental” particles that exist today and unite the formerly conflicting theories of Einstein & the Quantum theory. We potentially have a real theory-of-everything, same as the Pythagoreans sought thousands of years ago.
Vibratory Healers also Use Strings of Energy
There is another group, growing in popularity today, that share an important link with the ancients & scientists of today, Vibratory Healers. The string is the primary element with our first two groups, but it is the vibration, more precisely vibration energy, that modern Alternative Healers utilize to produce wondrous results.
Vibration energy is extremely versatile and effective, in its benefits to living things. Why is this so? The form of the energy – vibrations – seems to be easily absorbed; frequencies are available for almost any need – in the exact amount of energy required. The spectrum of vibratory frequencies is immense, offering precise and selective remedies to tune all elements of the holistic being–body, mind, and soul.
Vibratory energy of the right frequencies has shown the ability to greatly accelerate the growth and resistance to disease and pests of many plants. “Melodies” of frequencies derived from plant DNA studied by French physicist, Joel Sternheimer, consistently produce accelerated plant growth.
Tuning in to the Strings Deep Inside Us
Certain Sound Healing practices have achieved impressive results “tuning” individuals with the use of unique tuning forks (Hulse). For example, placing a tuning fork that emits a single frequency on the spine, or on key meridians, helps loosen subtle energy, or alleviates back pain. Tones, rhythms and harmonics associated with chakra clearing allow vital subtle energy to enter our systems, producing health and vitality.
Modern Masters, many of them Indian swamis and Sufi masters are descendants of a long tradition that uses sound to build moral and spiritual development. The master, Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji, does healing concerts where modern-day miracles are reportedly performed. Many ancient spiritual masters held sound as the most powerful means of achieving and influencing the divine (similar to the Pythagorean tradition, mentioned above).
The Soul Strings in Voice Prints and Flowers
Sharry Edwards has spent a lifetime demonstrating that the voice print of a human voice is a window on the underlying physical and emotional well-being of its owner. Edwards has learned to read and correct imbalances in the human voice. This done with vibratory energy, restoring health in the process. In Edwards’ BioAcoustics, frequencies can take the place of physical substances, such as vitamins, muscles, and so on. These frequency equivalents are noninvasive packets of energy that can selectively restore missing balance to the inharmonious soul. The circle is complete when the restored frequencies are once more present in a new voice print is recording.
The author has studied the vibratory modalities of the Bach Soul Flower remedies and of facial skin and muscle rejuvenation potentials. These seemingly very different aspects of nature are linked. These are also available, tuned, and revitalized using the appropriate sound energies.
Hans Cousto learned to interpret the motions of the planets and stars into Star Tones, powerful forces for using and understanding astrological energies. He played the music of the stars!
Strings in the Cosmos, with Subtle, Divine Connections
Fibonacci tones mirror patterns found throughout nature and the cosmic realm. This set of frequencies is revealed in every aspect of creation, including the human body. The ancients believed that tuning to this pattern not only harmonized their souls and bodies, but connected them to the divine. The Bible mysteriously encodes solfeggio tones. In history and modern times, each tone is reported to have its own healing benefit; such as one frequency used to repair DNA in scientific settings.
Different scales with related note-pitches also produce a variety of healing impacts. Scales such as the Pythagorean and Just intonation are created with different methods than those used in our current musical scale. Different vibratory patterns associate with different impacts on the body.
Through the ages, we use the idea of a vibrating string again-and-again to help thinkers better understand the universe around us. The string helps us gain insight into unseen mysteries; be that super-submicroscopic strings, or the workings of the human body and the chakras. Thus, Einstein had it right, matter is energy. All is vibration, everything is One, and all can be shown to be the same. And we will evolve out of matter, one day. All is united in the divine.
