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.
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.
