Finding Balance Through Sound
Everything in the universe functions through sound vibration, including every organ, system and gland in our body. While each of these has its own independent job to do, they also work together as a team. When this communication is flowing seamlessly, we experience the benefit of good health. But should the communication break down or one system or organ undergo excessive or prolonged stress, an imbalance can develop. This dialogue between and among the various parts of the body is conducted through sound frequency.
Enter VoiceBio™, a cutting-edge energetic assessment tool created by naturopath and health researcher, Dr. Kae Thompson-Liu. This non-invasive technology reveals frequency patterns in the body through a voice recording. Because our voices are made up of every note in the musical scale as well as being a composite of the frequencies of the human body, these patterns can reveal which tonal frequencies are “heavy” (overworked or exhausted) or “low” (stagnant or not working).
During a session, the practitioner will ask the client a series of three questions. This information (ignoring word content) is sorted and graphed to reveal frequency tones. From this recording, a graph will indicate the heavy and low areas found from physical as well as emotional perspectives. As an example, a heavy note of ‘F#’ could indicate an overworked sympathetic nervous system, possibly indicating mental stress, insomnia, and/or headaches.
EMOTIONS AND SOUND
Just as every organ and system in our bodies has a frequency, our emotions do as well. If emotions such as anger, resentment, anxiety or grief are allowed to escalate, not only will they have an effect on our physical health, but will prevent us from coming into an overall balanced flow of energy. VoiceBio™ will assess an individual’s physical as well as emotional status from an energetic standpoint and the relationship between the two.
MAKING USE OF THIS INFORMATION
As both physical and emotional energy patterns are assessed, for example which notes are present and which are missing, various holistic suggestions can be made to help regain balance. The most profound and non-invasive of these suggestions is sound itself. For instance if a person’s VoiceBio™ portrayed a low ‘B’ note, this would correspond primarily to the colon and large intestine with possible symptoms of constipation, cramps, and bloating. By toning (most healing) or listening to music in the note of ‘B’ along with other lifestyle recommendations, energy will be moved from more congested areas into those with little or no energy. This balancing helps to release stress and offer the body the means to heal itself. Just like listening to one of your favorite songs that registers in every part of you, we feed the body with a feel-good tone that it is actually asking for!
As Jonathon Goldman, author and Sound Healing Practitioner so beautifully shares, “When we are in a state of health, we’re like an extraordinary orchestra that’s playing a wonderful symphony of the self. But what happens if the second violin player loses her sheet music? She begins to play out of tune, and pretty soon the entire string section sounds bad. Pretty soon, in fact, the entire orchestra is off. This is a metaphor for disease.”
Your voice has a lot to tell you.
