Sound is one of the purest forms of energy in existence.
Sound inspires us, uplifts us, helps us to communicate, express ourselves, and even heal at a deep level.
Have you ever stopped to consider how amazing it is that everything around you is fundamentally composed of energy that vibrates at different frequencies? Thanks to science, we know that the denser an object is, the lower its vibration is, and the lighter something is, the higher its vibration is.
Vibration also corresponds to emotions. When we identify with emotions such as anger, hatred, jealousy, guilt, paranoia, and self-loathing, we actually lower our vibration. On the other hand, when we stop identifying with these emotions and instead see them simply as energy fluctuating within us, we begin to experience “high vibration” states such as love, peace, gratitude, creativity, and self-fulfillment.
It’s important here to remember that there’s nothing wrong with feeling any type of emotion, including uncomfortable ones. Unfortunately, many new age writers use the term “low vibration” to condemn and therefore spiritually bypass emotions such as anger or grief. Ironically, condemning these emotions actually generates more fear and resistance within the psyche, which further solidifies a “low vibrational” state of being.
While the best way to experience high vibration states such as love and bliss is to stop identifying and attaching to thoughts and emotions, there are helpful catalysts out there which help to center your energy. One of these catalysts is known as the Solfeggio Frequencies.
What are Solfeggio Frequencies?
The Solfeggio Frequencies are a series of 6 electromagnetic musical tones that the Gregorian Monks were said to use when they chanted in meditation. Rediscovered in 1974 by Dr. Joseph Puleo, the Solfeggio Frequencies are said to deeply penetrate the conscious and subconscious mind, stimulating inner healing. Dr. Puleo was intuitively led to rediscover these healing frequencies in the Book of Numbers (a book in the Hebrew Bible), using a numerological technique to decipher the six repeating codes he found. The result was the rediscovery of the Solfeggio Frequencies.
Physicist, inventor, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla once said, “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would hold a key to the universe.” Interestingly, these three numbers form the root vibration of the six Solfeggio Frequencies.
These are the Solfeggio Frequencies:
- UT – 396 Hz – transforming grief into joy and guilt into forgiveness
- RE – 417 Hz – clears negativity and removes subconscious blockages
- MI – 528 Hz – stimulates love, restores equilibrium, repairs DNA
- FA – 639 Hz – strengthens relationships, family, and community unity
- SOL – 741 Hz – physically cleanses the body from all types of toxins
- LA – 852 Hz – awakens intuition and helps you return to spiritual balance
Each of the syllables that describe the Solfeggio Frequencies were taken from the first stanza of the medieval hymn to St. John the Baptist:
Ut queant laxis Resonare fibris
Mira gestorum Famuli tuorum
Solve polluti Labii reatum
The literal translation from Latin is: “So that your servants may, with loosened voices, resound the wonders of your deeds, clean the guilt from our stained lips, O Saint John.” (Source.)
6 Powerful Solfeggio Frequencies that Raise Your Vibration
The Solfeggio Frequencies were said to be used in over 150 Gregorian chants, and are said to increasingly raise your vibration when listened to. Each Solfeggio tone helps to peel back layers of negativity and energy blockages, helping you to experience emotional and spiritual release.
Many people describe listening to these tones as calming, inspiring, cleansing, and even revelatory in that they help us to experience clarity and understanding about the problems in our lives. Others who listen to the Solfeggio Frequencies may experience headaches or even repressed emotions like anger rise to the surface in response to the mismatch of vibration. In other words, these sound healing frequencies may have a “purging” effect on your energy field, which might make you feel a bit queasy! On the other hand, you might react to these sounds extremely well, so please do listen and experiment.
1. UT – 396 Hz
The 396 Hz Solfeggio Frequency helps those who struggle with feelings such as guilt, fear, and grief. This tone is highly grounding and cleansing. I also highly recommend trying out binaural beats as a form of healing, such as this track that helps to remove anxiety.
2. RE – 417 Hz
This sound frequency helps you to clear negativity and removes subconscious blockages in the form of limiting core beliefs, toxic thinking patterns, and harmful habits. The 417 Hz tone is primarily about facilitating change and connecting you back with the Divine Source. Binaural beats is another form of music therapy that can help with clearing negativity (check out this track).
3. MI – 528 Hz
The “MI” tone is often thought of as the “love frequency.” This sound vibration is also said to be central to creation and is thought to restore inner equilibrium, increase awareness, repair DNA, and stimulate transformation.
4. FA – 639 Hz
This sound vibration increases understanding, tolerance, interpersonal harmony, and empathy. As such the “FA” tone is said to strengthen relationships, family connection, and unity with others. If you’re struggling in your work or personal relationships, this sound frequency may help you create more harmony. If you’re interested in attracting and manifesting more love, this binaural beats meditation is also a wonderful tool.
5. SOL – 741 Hz
SOL is the frequency which is said to help detox the body from all types of pollutants (viral, fungal, bacterial, electromagnetic). This sound vibration is also said to be useful when trying to solve problems as it will increase mental clarity. If you’re struggling with chronic aches and pains, you might also like to look into binaural beats, which is another form of music healing (see this track).
6. LA – 852 Hz
The “LA” sound frequency awakens your intuition and helps you return to spiritual balance. This tone also helps you to see through illusions and discover the highest truth, aiding you in communicating more openly with Spirit. For more assistance in connecting with universal consciousness, check out this mind-expanding music.
When listening to the above Solfeggio Frequencies, it helps to pay mindful attention to your body and any emotions that arise within you. How do you feel? What thoughts or repressed urges (if any) rise to the surface? Which sounds make you feel light and which ones disturb you? Close your eyes if it helps you to concentrate. You might also like to listen to these frequencies with headphones on for a more intense experience.
Remember that true healing and transformation is about ceasing to identify and attach to your thought and feelings. In this sense, Solfeggio Frequencies are excellent catalysts and facilitators of mindful and awakened consciousness.
