What are Light and Sound Therapies?
Light and Sound Therapies are increasingly popular types of vibrational medicine or energy medicine. Einstein taught us that every living thing produces an electromagnetic field with a vibrational frequency and that energy and matter are interchangeable and transferable. Based on the principle that all matter vibrates to a precise frequency and that imbalances have frequencies that be rebalanced, light and sound therapy use resonant vibration to restore health to the body and electromagnetic field.
Light Therapy is based on the fact that light moves at varying speeds to create light wave frequencies, otherwise known as color. While light enters the body primarily through the eyes, it also enters through the skin and chakras. Light plays an important role in the body, stimulating and supporting the immune system, endocrine system, and other organs. The human body is especially tuned into colors, which have been linked to mood, emotions, and even physical health. Lucia Light Therapy which is flashing white light, works with the pineal gland and central brain. As the light activates the pineal gland through the retina of your closed eyes, your beautiful mind creates an incredible array of psychedelic colours and geometries. The light on its own has many reported benefits such as increasing emotional well-being, reducing depression, anxiety and stress, seasonal affective disorders, helping heal drug and alcohol addictions and more!
Sound therapy can intensify the light’s power. Some of the most powerful healing frequencies are the Solfeggio frequencies. If you practice yoga and meditation, you have probably been to a class or listened to music and sounds that are aligned with each of the 7 Main Chakras. If we didn’t know better we might just feel that the music is played as it is relaxing and helps us come to a place where we can reconnect with our inner self; however there is so much more going on behind those beautiful sounds.
Sound has long been known to have deep therapeutic and healing qualities, sound and music can also deeply alter our moods and state of mind. There are many varying frequencies and vibrations associated to music and sound, we can find ourselves drawn to some sounds and repulsed by others. And what resonates with one person may be totally different to another. For one listener the sounds of “Death Metal” music may create feelings of anger and stress, however other people listen to this genre of music to help relieve stress and let their anger go. As human beings we are touched by different things in different ways, and with music it may very well be the frequency that can bring the altered states.
It is not uncommon to be hearing Solfeggio frequencies when we are listening to meditation and chakra healing sounds. Solfeggio frequencies date back centuries and were thought to have been created by a Benedictine Monk by the name of Guido D’Arezzo (c.991 AD –c.1050AD). Solfeggio Frequencies where chanted by the Gregorian Monks during their meditation as the Monks believed the frequencies, when sung in harmony, could bring about spiritual awakening. These sacred Solfeggio Frequencies make up a 6-tone scale and each frequency is said to balance the whole body; physical, spiritual and emotional. Thus, lending themselves perfectly to the healing and balancing of the chakra system.
There are known to be 6 Original Solfeggio Frequencies;

There have also been 3 more Solfeggio Frequencies revealed through deeper research; 174Hz, 285Hz and 963Hz.

Ancient Civilizations have used the power of frequency, rhythm, and light to hypnotize, heal and induce higher states of consciousness for centuries and there is deep and ancient science associated with the Solfeggio Frequencies.
