Music therapy and sound waves have the power to heal the body, soul, and mind. The Solfeggio scale originated long ago in medieval Europe, but the use of sound for healing dates back to ancient civilizations. Throughout history, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of musical rhythm to induce states of higher consciousness and facilitate healing.

Sound therapy is used for various health issues and has a long history, dating back to ancient India, where Sanskrit chants written in the Vedas were employed. Similarly, in ancient China, sound was primarily utilized in traditional Chinese medicine. While scientific research on the specific effects of solfeggio frequencies is limited, the use of sound and vibration for healing and relaxation has been extensively studied.

The famous mathematician Pythagoras, often referred to as "the father of music," discovered musical intervals and developed theories on how sound and harmonic frequencies could be used in healing. He was the first person to prescribe music as medicine. Pythagoras believed that each celestial body, as well as every atom, produced a particular sound due to its movement, rhythm, or vibration, resulting in universal harmony. He asserted that music is omnipresent, governing all temporal cycles, such as seasons, biological cycles, and the rhythms of nature.

Research has shown that sound and vibration significantly affect the human body, forming the basis for using solfeggio frequencies. When specific frequencies are introduced to the body through sound, they are believed to resonate with different parts of the body, promoting healing, relaxation, and spiritual well-being.

Solfeggio frequencies

The music scale used today is believed to be out of sync with the old scale, and as a result, it is thought to be less effective in promoting feelings of wellness. The Solfeggio frequencies, which were part of the old scale, were lost when the modern scale was introduced. However, several decades ago, they were rediscovered.

Some historians suggest that monks initially used solfeggio frequencies as a mnemonic device to aid in music memorization. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that the old scale was based on a specific mathematical formula dating back to Pythagoras. It is believed that listening to Solfeggio frequencies can elevate individuals to a higher realm of consciousness and foster enlightenment.

Listening to Solfeggio frequencies can potentially be beneficial as they have the ability to alter brainwaves and, consequently, one's state of mind. For instance, if someone desired to change their behavior, they might utilize the 417 Hz frequency, known to facilitate change. On the other hand, if someone was experiencing grief, listening to the 396 Hz frequency could help liberate them from guilt and fear.

Solfeggio frequencies are derived from the ancient solmization system used in medieval music, where specific syllables were assigned to each note in a musical scale. The Solfège scale, developed by Guido d'Arezzo, a Benedictine monk and music theorist in the 8th century, initially consisted of six notes. It later evolved into the seven-note scale commonly used in modern music today. The syllables used to represent musical notes in the solfeggio system were "Ut, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La," with a seventh note, "Si," added later to complete the scale.

Solfege in its original form can be found in the "Hymn to St. John the Baptist." It begins with "ut, re, mi, fa, so, la," and it is from here that the story of Solfeggio Frequencies originates. With minor alterations, we still utilize Guido's system of sight singing and musical notation today.

The original musical scale is described in the first stanza as follows: "Ut queant laxis - resonare fibris - Mira gestorum - famuli tuorum - Solve polluti - labii reatum, Sancte Iohannes." Translated, it means: "So that your servants may, with loosened voices, resound the wonders of your deeds and cleanse the guilt from our stained lips, O Saint John."

Solfeggio frequencies in contemporary times

Dr. Joseph Puleo began researching the Solfeggio frequencies in the mid-1970s. During his research on the structure of the Bible, he discovered a pattern of six repeating codes around the sacred numbers 3, 6, and 9 in Chapter 7, Verses 12-83. Using the ancient Pythagorean method of reducing verse numbers to single-digit integers (modular 9 arithmetic), he deciphered these codes, which revealed a series of six electromagnetic sound frequencies corresponding to the syllables from the Hymn to St. John the Baptist: "UT, RE, MI, FA, SO, LA."

Each of these electromagnetic sound frequencies corresponds to a specific color and hertz frequency, each with its own unique quality. Dr. Puleo decoded them as follows:

  • UT – 396 Hz – Liberating guilt and fear.
  • RE – 417 Hz – Undoing situations and facilitating change.
  • MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and miracles (DNA repair).
  • FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships.
  • SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening intuition.
  • LA – 852 Hz – Returning to spiritual order.

Nikola Tesla, the father of electromagnetic engineering, once concluded, "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe." Dr. Puleo found patterns of passages containing a series of six repeating codes, representing an ancient 6-tone scale that corresponds to the six notes of the Solfeggio scale, which had been used for healing purposes in ancient times.

In practical usage, solfeggio frequencies are employed in sound therapy. The human body consists of various systems operating at different frequencies, such as the brain, heart, lungs, and endocrine system. Solfeggio frequencies are believed to have positive effects on the human body, including reducing stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, enhancing focus, and promoting overall health.

Each tone is said to have a specific effect on the physical body and can be used to address a wide range of ailments. For instance, 528 Hz is believed to promote healing and DNA repair, while 639 Hz is thought to stimulate communication and improve relationships. Different musical instruments can be used to play the exact frequency.

These systems within the body all have their own unique frequencies, and when they are in a state of balance, the body is said to be in a state of health.

The rule of three 3-6-9

The number three has played a significant role throughout history, spanning ancient civilizations, cultures, religions, spirituality, and even science. It symbolizes unity, perfection, creation, and the cosmos. The Rule of Three defines a principle that highlights the power and effectiveness of the number. It is based on the Latin principle "omne trium perfectum," which translates to "everything that comes in threes is perfect and complete."

The number six, in relation to three, signifies its double and is considered twice as powerful. On the other hand, the number nine represents the pinnacle of threes, being three times three, and is known as the mathematical fingerprint of God.

The Rule of Three, represented by each number, signifies a specific stage in creation on the path to completion. This principle is prominently visible in the Solfeggio frequencies, which are nine ancient healing frequencies revered as the sounds of creation: 174 Hz, 285 Hz, 396 Hz, 417 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz, 852 Hz, and 963 Hz.

When the Pythagorean Skine method is applied to reduce the numbers to their single-digit integers, fulfilling the Rule of Three, it looks like this:

  • 174 Hz: 1+7+4 = 12 (12-3 = 9)
  • 285 Hz: 2+8+5 = 15 (15-6 = 9)
  • 396 Hz: 3+9+6 = 18 (18-9 = 9)
  • 417 Hz: 4+1+7 = 12 (12-3 = 9)
  • 528 Hz: 5+2+8 = 15 (15-6 = 9)
  • 639 Hz: 6+3+9 = 18 (18-9 = 9)
  • 741 Hz: 7+4+1 = 12 (12-3 = 9)
  • 852 Hz: 8+5+2 = 15 (15-6 = 9)
  • 963 Hz: 9+6+3 = 18 (18-9 = 9)

The tones of the ancient solfeggio scale were developed for a highly spiritual purpose and were used by the church in ancient Gregorian chants.

Science of solfeggio frequencies

Further investigation into solfeggio frequencies took place in 1988 when Dr. Glen Rein researched the effects of sound waves on the human body. In his experiment, Rein exposed DNA to four different styles of music: Sanskrit mantras, Gregorian chants, classical, and rock.

Dr. Rein measured the rate of UV light absorption, which is a core function of healthy DNA, in order to assess the effects of each type of music on the DNA. The results showed that Gregorian chants and Sanskrit mantras increased UV light absorption by 5 to 9 percent, promoting DNA repair. Classical music also increased UV absorption, but to a smaller extent. On the other hand, rock music decreased UV light absorption, causing damage to the DNA.

Dr. Rein's research established critical data to gain a clearer understanding of the effects of sound frequencies on our health and well-being.
