From age-old drumming circles to today’s concerts, humans have long turned to music to uplift and heal. 

Ancient Tones for Modern Life

Centuries ago, Benedictine Monks incorporated what’s known as Solfeggio frequencies into Gregorian chants. Even before that, the use of the ancient Solfeggio scale could be traced to Biblical times.

Unfortunately, the healing properties of the original six-tone Solfeggio scale was lost in history for some time. It was replaced by the modern twelve-tone scale, still used by today’s musicians. This twelve-tone scale is said to limit our consciousness, repress our intuition, and be out of sync with our natural world, thus possibly contributing to disease and distress.

Listening to Solfeggio frequencies, on the other hand, can help with physical healing and spiritual growth.

These frequencies are mathematically consistent with universal patterns and can offer profound healing effects due to their unique vibrational qualities.

Modern Usage

Also known as Quantum healing frequencies, sacred frequencies, and sound healing, these tones are being rediscovered by healing enthusiasts and music lovers who enthusiastically embrace their ethereal sounds.

Reported benefits include help enhancing spiritual awareness, aiding with deep healing, and increasing personal awakening.

Solfeggio frequencies, as well as other healing sound frequencies, can offer profound effects. It’s not unusual for listeners to report that their lives improved and their spiritual paths were enhanced after regularly listening to these tones.

Using the Frequencies

If you’re interested in incorporating the power of tone into your life, search online for healing frequency videos. YouTube is a popular place to start. Listen to videos of the different frequencies to see which appeals most to you.


When you find one you like, settle into a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Consider wearing headphones to help drown out noises and distractions. Set the volume to low or medium-low. Get into a relaxed state.

Keep in mind that consistency is key when it comes to experiencing the full range of benefits that frequencies offer.

Don’t be surprised if unexpected emotions come up during a listening session. There’s a reason for this: these feelings are arising in order for you to heal them.

In Food

If listening to music’s not your thing, know that even food is being infused with frequencies.

One creative chocolatier is raising the vibration of confections with 528 Hz, known as the “love” frequency. This particular tone resonates with the heart chakra, assisting in personal transformation.

Yet another reason to indulge in chocolate therapy.
