According to Jonathan Goldman, well-respected sound healing pioneer, “frequency plus intention equals healing.”
As mentioned elsewhere, healing doesn’t necessarily mean curing illness; in fact, ethical practitioners of alternative and complimentary medicine never promise cures, diagnose illnesses, or prescribe substances. Instead, they work to bring body, mind and spirit into balance and harmony. When harmony is established and maintained, dis-ease can no longer exist.
The word frequency in Goldman’s formula above refers to the vibrations of sound waves. Everything has its own frequency or vibration, regardless of whether we hear or notice it. In this case, sound (frequency) is used to promote healing.
But what does intention have to do with healing? The answer is: everything! The following is from Goldman’s article entitled Shifting Frequencies: Frequency + Intent.
“Jonathan began to realize that it might be possible for two people to make the same sound and have a very different response, depending upon the energy that was put into the sound. Have you ever had someone you were not particularly fond of see you at a party and say in a snake-like tone “Good to see you” and felt as though you immediately wanted to leave the party. While the words (or the frequency) may have been one thing, the intention (or energy behind the words) said quite another. And the effect was not one of welcoming, but rather something very different. This is an illustration of how intentionality affects the outcome of the sound.”
In an interview with The share Guide, Lynne McTaggart, author of The Intention Experiment, answers the following question:
“Lynne, there’s a potent quote in your new book that seems to sum up the whole concept of intention: “To think is to affect.”Doesn’t this idea change pretty much everything about the way our society is set up?
Lynne McTaggart: Definitely!Everything we do is based on the concepts of Newtonian Physics, which are 300+ years old.Newton’s ideas describe a very well-behaved universe of separate objects operating according to fixed laws in time and space. While Newtonian physics works very well on one level, it doesn’t cover everything. New discoveries in quantum physics are indicating that everything is connected. We used to believe that there was a physics of the large and a physics of the small. We’re now understanding that there is one physics–the laws of the quantum world are applicable to the world at large, the great big world of visible matter. Those laws suggest that the observer has an effect on reality. And there is evidence that our thoughts have the capacity to change physical matter. That being the case, we have to rethink almost everything, because we’ve perceived a world based on separation, but the world that we’re discovering now is a world of unity, where all things are fundamentally connected at the subatomic level.”
Science, and no longer spirituality alone, is proving that our thoughts – our intentions – have a power most of us don’t dare to dream about.
once you know the power of your own intentions, as McTaggart explains in her book and others have explained before her, you can bring about positive change for yourself and others.
