My name is Dr Stephen Simpson. My background is as a medical doctor working in challenging locations, but for the last 12 years I have worked exclusively as an elite performance coach. This means you are in the right place at the right time, because we are all capable of performing at a much higher level than we give ourselves credit for.
I am always looking for different ways to improve our performance and well-being and the subject of today’s video is a quick look at the solfeggio frequencies.
The solfeggio frequencies are an ancient six tone scale of musical notes. For hundreds of years it has been considered sacred music and is the foundation of the popular Gregorian chants.
What are these frequencies?
These frequencies are considered by many to be the frequencies that keep the mind, body, and soul in balance. The six frequencies are 396, 417, 528, 639, 741, and 852 Hz.
Each of these frequencies is believed to have unique special effects in the most important areas of our life. Whether they do or not is open to considerable debate, but suffice it to say that many people believe they are beneficial and use them every day.
These frequencies are also sometimes referred to as the songs of the spine and relate to the chakras. There are seven chakras and only six solfeggio frequencies so perhaps one went missing.
Who discovered them?
Solfeggio frequencies gained modern traction in no small part to the work of Professor Willi Apel. He was a German musicologist who emigrated to the United States and died in 1988. During this time he was a lecturer at Harvard and Indiana universities.
Apel believed that mediaeval music did not receive its fair degree of merit and published many books detailing his academic views on the structure music. One of these books was titled Gregorian Chant, and the Roman Catholic Church considered this at least in the past to be the most suitable music for worship.
There is a considerable degree of controversy about the solfeggio frequencies, and I am the first to admit that it sounds somewhat fanciful to suggest that they might have beneficial effects.
However very few people would argue that music can touch the soul and provoke deep emotions. Music in some shape or form has been around this planet for as long as we have, and shows no signs of dying out any time soon. Gregorian chants are as popular as ever before.
What are the effects of these frequencies?
I have an open mind about just about anything that cannot cause harm to me or to others. I listen to these frequencies almost daily and also have programmed them into my bio resonance machine. These frequencies are delivered electrically to me via tens pads, similar to the ones that physiotherapists use.
Do I benefit from them? The truthful answer is that I do not know for sure, but I feel that I do. I feel very relaxed afterwards, my meditation scores are higher, and I keep pretty fit. Fingers crossed I will continue to do so for a long time yet. I cannot remember the last time I even had a cold.
If you would like to listen to the solfeggio frequencies I have posted a simple audio file at the top of the page.
