Let's talk about vibrations and frequencies in our Crafting

Thank you for your reply back! It was happening while he was in the machine removing snow and it was for 12 straight solid hours. I think that’s what happened and when stopped and got out of it they put him in a room and had him lay down and that’s when it basically started to stop so you’re probably right.

Have a blessed wonderful day,

August Wandering,

Excellent post! I believe your quote below is very helpful for the newbies, including myself learning to cast spells.

“Civilizations of all races, all religions, have used sound as a tool for thousands of years. And I know, we meditate before we cast or cure or craft whatever it is we are manifesting, but meditation alone is not enough to activate the willful intent of the caster instead of their thoughts. For me, this has been a crucial element in my development of increasing power, or energy manipulation”. (Spells 8, August Wandering, 2022).

Thank you for your detailed knowledgeable information!

I’d just like to add my two cents, I am of personal belief being that math and mathematical equations are the basis for absolutely everything and the fact that math supports all of the things that exist here and the “laws” of the universe and physics, it only strengthens my belief in Magick. Sometimes I wonder if the reason some people see spirits is because their vibrations are higher (thus closer) to the vibrations of otherworldly souls. Who knows. I think about it all the time though

@kierstyn Welcome, Kierstyn! :blush::heart: You’re not alone- I’ve actually been hearing a lot about the magickal nature of math, geometric shapes/patterns, and numerology lately. And we actually just had a Numerology Challenge in the forum!

Please make yourself at home here- blessed be! :sparkles:

I’m taking a vocals class and in the first unit they discussed about how every note we make (whether it is said or spoken) vibrates at a certain frequency. Each note on the piano and each note sung has a certain frequency- if I remember correctly, the average human range is about 80 Hz to 1.1 kHz :microphone:

All I could think about was your notes about vibrations and frequencies and how we can apply them in our Craft- it makes me want to work more music magick! :notes::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Let’s talk about meridian points and how tones affect them.

The human meridian points of Chinese Medicine date back to around 206 BCE. They are like nerve highways in the human body that allows for the flow of Qi (energy). Although there are 361 meridians in all, there are only twelve main meridians used in acupuncture to affect change in the body.

The Twelve Principal Meridians

  • · Stomach
  • · Spleen
  • · Small Intestine
  • · Heart
  • · Bladder
  • · Kidney
  • · Pericardium
  • · Triple Warmer
  • · Gall Bladder
  • · Liver
  • · Lung
  • · Large Intestine

There are also two centerline meridians: the conception vessel and the governing vessel.

“The conceptions vessel receives Qi from the yin meridians before distributing it to the yang meridians.” It moves the Qi throughout the body.

“The governing vessel controls the yang meridians and the Guardian Qi.” It’s the body’s warming mechanism.

The chakra points of Hindu Medicine date back to around 1500 – 500 BCE. There are 114 chakras and 72,000 Nadis in the human body, quite a few more than the basic seven we are used to working with.

We usually consider the chakras to be energy points in the body that correspond to specific bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic bodies. But that’s too simplified of a concept for the chakra system. The system is in two parts, the Nadis, and the Chakras.

“Nadis are the pathways of the life energies and chakras are the purification and distribution centers of the life energies in our body.” – Sri Amit Ray

The Chakras are then divided into 7 major, 21 minor, and 86 micro points on the human body.

The Seven Principal Chakras

  • · Muladhara (root)
  • · Svadhishthana (sacral)
  • · Manipura (solar plexus)
  • · Anahata – (heart)
  • · Vishuddha (throat)
  • · Anja (3rd Eye)
  • · Shastrara – (crown)

So, you may be asking, how does this affect my body, and mostly, how does this affect my Craftwork? That brings us back to frequencies and tones. When certain frequencies and/or tones are applied via listening (tones) or physical contact (frequencies) with their specific corresponding meridian or chakra points, it creates an energy event at those points.

Now we get into a little anatomy of the human body. Our entire nervous system can be affected by our vagus nerve. We have twelve cranial nerves in the body which come in pairs and link parts of the brain with the body. Cranial nerves can have sensory functions, motor functions, or both functions. The vagus nerve is one of the latter. And whereas it has a very important part to play in the everyday function of the body, it also controls mood and can increase the capacity to regulate stress responses.

“It can be influenced by breathing, its increase through meditation and yoga likely contribute to resilience and the mitigation of mood and anxiety symptoms.”

The vagus nerve can be positively affected simply through vocalizations such as singing, humming, chanting, or even gargling with cold water. The reason I include this information is simple; the vagus nerve is a part of the meridian and chakra systems. Keeping it toned and working is key in working with your energy signature.

When we hear specific tones, or make them ourselves, the vibrations travel along the vagus nerve, the meridians, and the chakras and “open” them to increased positive energies. Many instruments can accomplish this. If you’ve ever sat down to listen to certain classical pieces and found yourself feeling a little verklempt and weepy over its beauty, then you’ve experienced the power of tones on the body.

Now if you direct tones to the concise energy points either aurally or physically, you control the accompanying emotion and set your entire body to vibrate at that specific frequency or energy.

The most beneficial methods of using tones and vibrations are your voice, singing bowls, tone generators, and tuning forks.

When using your voice to activate chakras, it is quite helpful to learn the exact Hindu words and notes used throughout time.

  • · Root – LAM
  • · Sacral – VAM
  • · Solar – RAM
  • · Heart – YAM
  • · Throat – HAM
  • · 3rd Eye – AUM
  • · Crown – SILENCE

Simply changing the Hindu Sanskrit alphabet is known to activate the chakra system positively.

And as TheTravelWitch_Bry mentioned, every note we speak, or sing vibrates at a certain frequency. So yes, we want to make not just music, but singing a very big part of our casting work, along with frequency tuning in our individual casting “pre-game” rituals.

For working with meridians and chakras, the application of the frequency via tuning forks or acupuncture needles is most useful. I don’t do the needles, so I won’t speak on that. But I do use tuning forks and yes, they work incredibly.

Although sound travels best through the air, frequency travels best through the skin. Therefore, we apply needles and forks to the body for healing with tones. There are other unorthodox methods, but we’ll get to those when discussing how to practice frequency tuning and chakra activation.

Back to how this affects our Craftwork. Example: you’re settling in to cast a love spell, but some little negative piece of anger in the back of your mind, hidden out of your sight, is interfering with your vibration. No matter how much you set your mind to the task at hand, you will not be able to cast as strong of a spell because of that little frequency interruption. Or let’s say you’ve been asked to cast a spell for another person, they need a healing spell to recover from personal trauma. But when you go to cast, you are firm on your intent, but your energy is not centered in your root chakra. Again, this can weaken the Craftwork as the Caster isn’t vibrating at the same frequency as the spell’s intention.

On top of the idea of casting from an energy point with full vibrational power, keeping these energetic pathways healthy and functioning also strengthens our physical bodies and keeps us in tune with the world around us. We become more sensitive to the vibrations of the others in our lives, from our spouses and children to the person who bags our groceries. We become more intentional creatures and less reactionary overall.

And the wonderful side-effect is stronger spells, more focused casting, and more power.

So, does anyone feel interested in the total anatomy of all this (I have a very detailed anatomy class I can share from), or would you all rather get down to the nitty-gritty of how to actually DIY the heck out of self-frequency work?

I’m game for either or both!

Count me in! :raising_hand_woman: I’m not very good with remembering anatomy details but I’ve found the more I hear things the more likely they are to stick, and learning about them in this context is a very interesting one! :star_struck:

I really love how interdisciplinary your teaching are, @August_Wandering, that is to say it’s a very holistic and wholesome approach to the concept. I really enjoy hearing about how energy and frequency work corresponds with TCM, the Chakras, physical anatomy, etc- it’s really all very fascinating!

Thank you so much once again for sharing your wisdom- I’m looking forward to reading more! :blush:

This is excellent! I love learning new detail knowledge from others with experience. I have said in another post that I was just starting to learn about frequencies and vibrations before I join this awesome group. I have on my phone (3) apps that gives the frequency you are at when listening to them. If you are interested, please let me know.

So awesome to hear you’re already making use of the frequencies!!! :star_struck:

I actually use some apps myself in my method. I’m not one of those who works on the energies via the aura. I’m into hands-on, super-intensive healing with vibrations via both aural and tactile methodologies.

It’s quite an experience. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Let’s talk about DIY Frequency Tuning

Now I have absolutely nothing against paying a sound healer or other type of energy worker to assist you in aligning and activating your chakras. It’s the career I’m training so hard for. If it’s something that you are really wanting to take on fully, I encourage you to find a local light worker that you “click” with and go for it. It’s worth it.

But for the purposes of Crafting, I think it’s important to know how to work with your energy body on your own so that you can align yourself with your spell work and Crafting as part of your ritual. It’s also the path head to a great journey of self-discovery.

There are a few steps to learning the DIY method, but they are mostly practice work with a few concepts to understand, like the torus of the energy direction of the human body, and the layers of the human energy body itself.

The Human Energy Body

  • · The layers of the human energy body are invisible and intangible, but they work in tandem with the physical layer of the body.
  • · When your chakras, meridians or energy centers are out of alignment, it causes these layers to also go out of balance.

There are many layers to the human energy body. I won’t be getting into the specifics because it’s just not necessary for this discussion. But it’s illustrated most usually like this.

What’s most important is to understand how these layers of energy move through the physical body. This motion has been most usually represented by a simple torus shape.

Picture2

With the advancement of our understanding of the human biofield of energy, it’s starting to be represented more and more as a multi-dimensional phenomenon.

What I’d like to you know is that energy is drawn up through the system and then is recycled back around. Imagine the torus is spinning in a bottom to top motion. On top of that movement, there are the extensions of the human consciousness up through the crown and extensions for human grounding running down through the legs and feet.

THIS is the phenomenon we are seeking to control along with our chakra/meridian points. They cannot be separated. To work with one is to work with the other, always.

The Tones We Work With

So, the first thing you’ll want to do is choose the type of tones you want to work with. There are many and they come in many forms, trying a few different ones can help you to decide which ones are for you. The three I work with are basic chanting, the Solfeggio Frequencies, the Chakra Tones, and the Schumann Resonance. Most sound workers don’t include the Schumann Resonance, but I’ll explain along the way why I do and how it’s enhanced my practice. If you want to use your own vocals, there is a variety of chanting types to choose from. What’s most important isn’t the chant itself, but where the words vibrate in your electrical system and in your physical body.

The most basic form of sound to work with is your own voice. If you are lucky enough to have singing skill, singing the scales works wonderfully as the scales are the same ones used in crystal singing bowls and chakra tuning forks.

Another way to use your voice to create resonance and vibrational change in the body is basic Hindu chanting. Hindu in specific works for this purpose because the entire language was created based on resonance and vibration. You can learn Hindu chants that have meaning for you, you can just chant the Sanskrit alphabet…or you can simply work with the Aum tone.

I know there’s a little confusion there with the Aum tone. Om is the word used to describe the actual symbol. AUM is the actual tone intonated and chanted. When spoken correctly, the word passes resonance and vibration through all seven main chakras.

Aum is a single word with three sounds. Each letter is sounded out. When done correctly, not only do we hear the classic “Om” sound, but we also vibrate all levels of our chakras/meridian points. Here’s a link to a wonderful video that explains exactly how it works.

How to chant AUM

The Solfeggio Tones were created by the Gregorian monks. The tones were so effective at putting people into religious trance, Pope Gregory banned them from use in the churches as they were “too good for the common man”. They were therefore lost for about 1500 years then rediscovered by an academic working with Bible codes. Although each tone is connected to a chakra, all the tones are beneficial to all the chakras. There are no singing bowls that can reach the frequencies of the Solfeggio Tones, but there are tuning forks and there is music. “Palestrina: Missa Papae Marcelli” by the Massimo Palombella & Sistine Chapel Choir is a fine example of Solfeggio Tone music. I am not a Christian myself, but the version of Agnus Dei on this album brings me to tears of awe and joy over the sheer beauty of the human voice when emitting Solfeggio Tones.

There are also Tone apps. I use a Solfeggio tone generator app called “Solfeggio Frequencies: Sounds” available for iPhone. I have not yet found one as good for Android. Anyone with any input on this, it will be most welcome. I have a lot of friends wanting to DIY Chakra Tone, but they have Android.

The other app I use is not a tone but a resonance. It’s called the “Schumann Resonance – 7.83Hz”. I use it in conjunction with the Solfeggio Tones for two reasons. First, the Schuman Resonance is the frequency of the earth and the frequency of REM. It is the heartbeat of the Great Mother and really helps to put me in a state of trance while working with the frequencies. Second, when played alongside the frequency tones, it creates a binaural beat effect that helps me know when I’ve gotten each chakra into alignment.

How to use each method

With chanting, the tones are internal and very soothing. All you need is your voice, a comfortable place to sit up straight and time. A good twenty minutes of chanting AUM will not only work on aligning your energy centers, it will also help you train your voice so you can recite spells at the proper tone to correspond to the desired manifestation.

Working with crystal singing bowls is an external tone delivery system. It’s not the easiest place to start as there is a learning curve and you cannot fully relax into the experience if you’re the one playing the bowls. But it is an indirect method that relies upon the vibrations travelling through the air and into your system mostly via your hearing.

Tuning Forks are advanced and difficult to perform on yourself. Not impossible, but difficult in the same way as singing bowls. They deliver the tones through the skin and create a more intense healing session.

Apps are the easiest way to get a multi-level response from your energy centers. They can be listened to through a speaker much like listening to singing bowls. They can also be listened to using either earbuds or earphones. Earbuds deliver the sounds to your cochlea to activate the surround nerves and meridian points. Over the ear headsets deliver the sounds to your cochlea and also resonate vibrations through the bones surrounding your ear. The apps I’ve mentioned herein are made by the same company and can be played at the same time. Here’s my method.

  • · I use an over the ear headset and start the Schuman Resonance and adjust the volume until I can feel the vibrations moving through the bones around my ears.
  • · I then start the Solfeggio Frequencies and adjust the volume until I can hear the tone but it is stuttered by the Schuman Resonance. This may sound kind of like an MRI to you at first, don’t panic…it won’t seem like that for long.
  • · I also use a meditation timer set up to ring a bell every five minutes so that I spend five minutes on each tone. When the timer rings, I simply move to the next tone.
  • · One 45-minute session a few times a week is a good start.

This method has worked wonders for me not only in my Craft, but in overcoming the several disorders I battle daily…to the point that I’ve decided to make it my career.

It’s best to balance all the energy points first, then concentrate on the one vibration you need for your spell casting. I’m quite sure you will all be highly creative in how you work this information and practice into your rituals.

I’ll keep posting more if you’d like. What else would you like to know about energy work using vibrations?

Will be experimenting with singing the scales in my practice! It would bring my Craft into my pre-recording vocal warm ups, and add more music to my meditation time- a win-win situation! :raised_hands:

I put this into YouTube and got this- listening to it now:

I’m not Christian either, but I’m all for the idea that good music goes beyond religious boundaries. This is very soothing to listen to :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yes, please! :star_struck: This last post especially is loaded with information- I have a feeling I’ll be revisiting it to pick up more and more.

I can’t think of anything at the moment, but I am 100% grateful for all the wisdom you’ve shared about your journey into vibrations/frequencies/sound work- and I’m completely open to any other information you feel called to sharing! It really is a blessing, @August_Wandering :heart::pray:
