The theory behind Solfeggio frequencies largely originates from two aspects: the historic use of this unique scale in music, and the belief in the potential healing power of certain frequencies.
- Historical Use in Music: The Solfeggio scale, as developed by Guido of Arezzo, was used in Gregorian chants and other sacred music. The belief is that these specific frequencies can lead to spiritual development and that they can affect the consciousness of the listener.
- Healing and Well-being: Advocates of Solfeggio frequencies argue that these specific frequencies can promote healing and well-being. For example, the frequency of 528 Hz is believed to have the ability to heal damaged DNA. Each frequency is thought to correspond to certain emotions, physical conditions or spiritual conditions.
Here is a breakdown of the six traditional Solfeggio frequencies and their purported benefits:
- 396 Hz: This frequency is believed to turn grief into joy and liberate the listener from fear and guilt.
- 417 Hz: This frequency is said to cleanse traumatic experiences and facilitate change.
- 528 Hz: This frequency is supposed to mend DNA, promote health, and stimulate love and spiritual growth.
- 639 Hz: This frequency is believed to improve communication, understanding, tolerance, and love.
- 741 Hz: This frequency is supposed to cleanse cells and detoxify the body on a cellular level.
- 852 Hz: This frequency is believed to help in awakening intuition and inner strength.
However there were 3 more Solfeggio Frequencies discovered in the 1970’s. Dr. Joseph Puleo rediscovered Solfeggio frequencies.
- 174 Hz: This frequency is shown to relieve pain and reduce stress.
- 285 Hz: This frequency is believed to help people recover from minor injuries.
- 963 Hz: This is known as the frequency of the gods, sound healers use this frequency to tape into the wisdom of the universe.
These ideas have gained traction in certain communities, and the frequencies are used in meditation, yoga, and certain forms of alternative healing.
