Healing Power of Sound


We use sound in our Super Spanish course to enhance our ability to absorb, retain and recall information.  These sounds can also improve health.

tuning fork therapy

Tuning Fork Therapy is one way to use sound in healing.

The article “Tuning Fork Sound Therapy” says: Like adjusting a piano, your body can be tuned to achieve optimal physical balance. Tapping two tuning forks will instantaneously alter your body’s biochemistry and bring your nervous system, muscle tone and organs into harmonic balance. In seconds … your body enters a deep state of relaxation. Feeling centered, your mind will be at peace.

Sound can provide a powerful health creating innercise.

Most health resources will point out that the keystones of good health are good nutrition, proper exercise and sufficient, sound sleep.

Yet most western exercise routines miss a key element.  They Western focus of EX in EXercise suggests that exercise comes from outside to strengthen us within.  Most Western concepts of exercise have to do with strengthening involuntary muscles.

Many ancient exercise programs (Andean, Indian and Oriental) are quite different.  I guess we could call them Innercises because they see exercise coming from both outside and within.  Natural health disciplines provide seven levels of exercise that go far beyond just muscular strength.

For years I was puzzled why delegates at our Super Spanish courses, which uses Baroque music to improve the learning process, often had spontaneous health improvements.  Reports included feeling better, losing weight, lowering blood pressure, relieving depression and losing aches and pains.

Then I made the connection between healing and sound.

Ted Andrews in his book “Sacred Sounds – Magic & Healing Through Words & Music” provides a glimpse at the  healing power of sound.

Here is an except from his book:  Sound has always been considered a direct link between humanity and the divine.  At some point, all of the ancient mystery schools taught their students the use of sound as a creative and healing force.  It is considered the oldest form of healing and it was a predominant part of the early teachings of the Greeks, Chinese, East Indians, Tibetans, Egyptians, American Indians, Mayas and Aztecs.

The Chinese healers used “singing stones’ – thin flat pieces of jade which emit various musical tones when struck. One of these tones was designated the “king” or great tone of Nature.  It corresponds to our own musical scale to the tone of F or F-sharp.

The Sufis consider “Hu” to be the ultimate creative sound. The Tibetans considered the tones of F-sharp, A and G to be the three powerful sacred tones of the world. “Om,” “Aum” and Amen were believed by many societies and traditions to represent all the sounds the human voice was capable and manifesting in the physical world.

Merri and I gained a lesson about the power of sound from a Sufi master we lived and worked with.  He taught us to use the chant Hu while visualizing the solar plexus for physical strength.

We discovered that the Sufi use of sound is similar to that in the Andes.  Merri and I were hiking with friends, the Andean yatchak, through a boggy mountain heath.  Our goal was over a peak in the distance.   The sound “Hu” helped us get through this highly strenuous ordeal.   The journey began early morning at 11,000 feet. We hiked up to 14,000 feet with the Andean yatchak  into a sacred valley.  The ground was soggy, pulling at our boots every step of the way.  The physical exertion was considerable.  When we began to lag, we repeatedly chanted “Hu” to gain energy as we slogged up the mountain through the sucking mud.  This gave us additional stamina to make the climb.

The yatchak understood what we were doing since “U” is also a sound that Andean shamans use to energize natural health.

The shamans have a sound they chant for each day of the week.  These chants are linked to a position (or exercise).  This sound is their morning prayer chanted while the prayer position is posed.  Each position and sound activates an energy center (called chakras in Sanskrit) of the body.

One series of sounds taught to us were:

The root sound is “U” as in huh.

The next energy center sound visualized higher in the belly is “ooo” as in you (and corresponds to the Sufi Hu).

Ah” as in Father registers in the respiratory system for breath.

Eye” as in I tunes the heart.

Aye” as in Say enlivens the third eye.

Eee” as in See stimulates the crown.

Sound is frequency and all frequency carries energy that affects our bodies at some level.

The ancient view is that these energy processing centers transform the frequency into a usable energy and that each center relates to an organ or gland.

One could view the processing centers as tuning forks.

Different frequencies cause different centers to resonate and energize different organs or glands.

The root energy center controls the adrenal gland.

The spleen energy center controls the reproductive glands.

The solar plexus energy center controls the pancreas.

The heart energy center controls the thymus.

The throat energy center controls the thyroid gland.

The brow energy center controls the pituitary gland.

The root energy center controls the pineal gland.

There is ayurvedic exercise to balance the glands via the energy processing centers by chanting through the musical scale with each note matching an energy center.

The root energy center is energized by the note C and the chant LAM.

There is an additional activity, which is to visualize a color.  With the root chant, the color is red.

The spleen energy center is energized by the note D and the chant VAM.
The color is orange.

The solar Plexus energy center is energized by the note E and the chant RAM.
The color is yellow.

The heart energy center is energized by the note F and the chant YAM.
The color is green.

The throat energy center is energized by the note G and the chant HAM.
The color is blue.

The brow energy center is energized by the note A and the chant AUM.
The color is purple.

The crown energy center is energized by the note B and the chant OM. The color to visualize is indigo.

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti  becomes

LAM
VAM
RAM
YAM
HAM
AUM
OM

Working through the musical scale with these chants balances the glands.  Try creating these sounds before you exercise.  See how you feel.

If the glands are energized first, then your other exercises accomplish more.

The process also works in reverse.  The body can be liken to a chair.  Whether you pull from the seat or the leg, the entire chair moves.

Exercise has profound effects on glands and their corresponding systems by creating specific hormones. The pituitary gland is the first to respond to exercise.

The pituitary secretes several hormones but the most important is the human growth hormone (HGH).   This stimulates the the body to increase bone, muscle, etc. but also stimulates the thyroid and adrenal gland and so on.

One way to view this duality is that beginning with glandular exercise, we start from the bottom up whereas skeletal muscle excursive starts from the top down.

There are many ways to start this balancing act, but many of the ancient disciplines start with the glands first.  Next time you exercise chant first or after… or better before and after.  You’ll get improved results from the physical effort and find you enjoy the process more.

Learn Spanish and you’ll live longer!

Research at University of Edinburgh found that learning new things can increase longevity.   The research team found that people who study longer and are more open to trying new things have an increased likelihood of better life expectancy.

The results showed that participants who read for more than 3.5 hours a week are 23 percent less likely to die during a 12-year period.  Likewise, those who read for up to 3.5 hours a week have had a 17 percent reduction in mortality risk.

Another study found that listening to Baroque music improves health.

A study comparing meditation to listening to Baroque music shows that blood pressure drops and the pulse slows down.  Stress melts away!

Reducing stress improves longevity.

Our Super Spanish course includes super learning sessions that include Baroque music.

Students find the sessions deeply relaxing.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe.  In the 1990s we took investors to Panama, Mexico and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy way to learn Spanish.

See below how my wife Merri was able to create a program that allowed students to be speaking and understanding Spanish in just three days.

Thousands of subscribers have learned Spanish at our three day Super Spanish course.  These courses have been taught across the US, in Canada, Panama, Mexico, Ecuador, Uruguay and Spain.

Read below to see how and why we are now offering our Super Spanish course ONLINE for the first time.

Speaking Spanish as a second language has huge benefits.

You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak English at all.

You become one of a leading few when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says (bolds are mine): “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling. 

It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English. 

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

You may choose to take more time using the ONLINE course to learn Spanish, but thousands of our readers have learned to speak Spanish in only three days at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

A special method of learning (called Super Learning) was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from students who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  

Merri was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

Super Spanish relaxed concentration session.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Relaxed Concentration sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $79.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

The Power of Profit in Sound


There is a power of profit in sound.

relaxed-concentration

Photo from the article "Stonehenge Design Inspired by Sound."

Sound is important wherever you go… this is why pronunciation is so vital in a language.

Here is a really important lesson about sound in Ecuador that Merri and I learned the hard way.  This will apply to any Spanish language country.  We found in our original travels often when we arrived… though we had made the reservation… the hotel did not have it.  This usually happened late at night (or in the wee hours of the morn) when the most junior staff were at the check in desk.

This puzzled us until we realized about the power of sound.  Our last name is Scott.  The Spanish language has no way to pronounce a double consonant link this. A Spanish speaker without training simply cannot say or even think in terms of Scott.  To them they would need to hear  Escott  pronounced not something hard like the double consonants of SCOTT.  This is compared to Spanish or Espanol…much softer… So the check in desk was always looking for our reservation under E for ESCOTT  not SCOTT…which doesn’t exist in Spanish.

Smith is pronounced ASmeeth and seen as Esmith.  Recently a reader named Lile arrived early in the morn and found he did not have a room.   Had he stated that he was Senor “LeeLay”  I am guessing the reservation was there.

Here is a tip we use on solving this sound problem.  “Just write your name and show it to the desk clerk”.

Correct pronunciation is so important in a language that we use only native born Spanish speakers as pronunciation coaches in our Super thinking  + Spanish courses. More on that in a moment.

First, here is even more important deeper wisdom about the power of sound and how you can use it to to live better… retire anywhere, anytime but still have plenty of income earned in a gratifying low stress way.

A recent BBC News article entitled “Stonehenge design was ‘inspired by sounds”  by Jonathan Amos, a science correspondent, shares a really provocative thought about the power of sound when it says:  Music could have been an inspiration for the design of Stonehenge, according to an American researcher.

Steven Waller’s intriguing idea is that ancient Britons could have based the layout of the great monument, in part, on the way they perceived sound.

He has been able to show how two flutes played in a field can produce an auditory illusion that mimics in space the position of the henge’s pillars.

Mr Waller presented the idea at the AAAS meeting in Vancouver, Canada.

He told the BBC: “My theory is that the ancient Britons, when they were hearing two pipers in a field, were experiencing sound wave interference patterns, where in certain locations as you walked around the pair of pipers, you would hear loud or quiet zones.

“If you could look at it from an overhead view, it would look like the spokes of a wheel. And, as you walk around the circle, every time you come to one of these sound-wave cancellation points, it feels like there is this massive invisible object in front of you.

“Put all this ‘vision in your mind’ together and it forms a Stonehenge-like structure.”

Mr Waller is an expert in “archaeoacoustics”, which examines the role sound might have played in ancient cultures.

relaxed-concentration

The phenomenon of interference leads to amplified and silenced regions. There is a link to the entire article below.

This phenomenon of sound can help us learn how to tap into unimaginable intelligence.  Here is why.

The influence is subtle – yes. The impact is more subtle than perhaps the color of the room you are born in… less than the skill of the doctor or midwife (or lack thereof) attending the birth… the weather outside… room  temperature, etc… but the influence is there.

Plus in many ways subtle can be more powerful than not-so-subtle.

Subtle is powerful because nothing ever rests.  Everything is rustling in nature’s gentle vibration so everything has a push pull impact on everything else at some subtle level.  For example you’ll see in a moment how one photon can influence a frog’s eye from a distance of 60 trillion miles!

This connection of everything with everything else is really important because it is a driving force in the universe.

All existence in the universe is a swirling mass of energy.  Form is created by density and speed of energy and the vibration of atoms and molecules, along with the impact of environmental forces (everything else).

All matter is vibrating energy as are all emotions and thoughts.  Thus all thought, reason, emotion, will or desire are accompanied by vibratory rates, which may be lowered or raised by external forces… such as the planets.

In the same way that the vibration of a musical note can affect the atoms and molecules in a mirror and cause it to shatter, so it is with planetary resonance.

According to Dr Percy Seymour, a Theoretical Astrophysicist, resonance makes it possible for a radio telescope to tune into specific vibrations in the Andromeda Galaxy (14 million, million, million miles away) and accounts for the Solar System playing a symphony of vibrations on the magnetic field of the Earth.  If so, then even small fluctuating forces can have large consequences.   This is the main tenet of astrology, personalities of individuals are related to the state of the Solar System at the time of birth and their feelings and thoughts are influenced by the motion and position of the planets.

There is a resonance from the tugs of the tide.  There is a resonance from the hot gases trapped in the magnetic field of the Sun and Earth.  There is resonance in the fluctuations of the Earth’s magnetic field. There is resonance in the reflected sunlight from the moon that waxes and wanes.  All these frequencies have an impact on the electrical activity of the neural network in the brain. Resonance of frequency (harmonics) is the celestial link to the terrestrial form.

The study of the harmonics of cosmic periods or resonant theory (harmonics) can help us dramatically boost access to the wisdom we possess but do not know how to reach.

The study of resonance explains why we attract certain events, or people, to us who reflect the state of our consciousness. Thus, when we are angry we are more likely to attract the violence or car accident which we are resonating with. More positively, it is the explanation for miraculous events in that we ‘entrain’ ourselves to good unfolding when our thoughts are constantly kept at the higher vibration, or frequency, of love and happy outcomes.

Dr. Seymour says in his book  “The Scientific Basis of Astrology” that the basic principles of western science comes from a total misunderstanding of resonance and an appalling lapse in their understanding of the methodology, philosophy and history of science itself.

Infinite Knowledge in the Quantum Interference Pattern

This resonance is a never ending part of quantum reality and one aspect of light and sound can show us how tap into unbelievable wisdom.

David Deutsche an Israeli-British physicist at the University of Oxford laid the foundations of the quantum theory of computation and made it comprehensible to the general public, notably in his book “The Fabric of Reality” which helps us understand our quantum reality though the frequencies in the range we call light. (All bolds in the excerpts are mine).

This information also relates ot sound.

Here are excerpts from “The Fabric of Reality”:  In his popular Royal Institution lectures on science, Michael Faraday used to urge his audiences to learn about the world by considering what happens when a candle burns. I am going to consider an electric torch (or flashlight) instead. This is quite fitting, for much of the technology of an electric torch is based on Faraday’s discoveries.

Deutsche describes an experiment that shows how light is at the core of quantum physics.

His books says: Imagine an electric torch switched on in an otherwise dark room. Suppose that the light of a torch passes through two successive small holes in otherwise opaque screens, as shown in Figure 2.4, and that the emerging light falls on a third screen beyond. Our question now is this: if the experiment is repeated with ever smaller holes and with ever

FIGURE 2.4 Making a narrow beam by passing light through two successive holes.

quantum-experiment

Can the illuminated region between the second and third screens  be confined to an arbitrarily narrow cone? In goldsmiths’ terminology, we are now asking something like ‘how “ductile” is light’ — how fine a thread can it be drawn into? Gold can be drawn into threads one ten-thousandth of a millimetre thick.

It turns out that light is not as ductile as gold! Long before the holes get as small as a ten-thousandth of a millimetre, in fact even with holes as large as a millimetre or so in diameter, the light begins noticeably to rebel. Instead of passing through the holes in straight lines, it refuses to be confined and spreads out after each hole. And as it spreads, it ‘frays’. The smaller the hole is, the more the light spreads out from its straight-line path. Intricate patterns of light and shadow appear.

The book then goes onto show that a pattern like this would appear.

quantum idea

Then Deutsche continues:  If light travelled in straight lines, the pattern in Figure 2.6 would consist simply of a pair of bright bands one-fifth of a millimetre apart (too close to distinguish on this scale), with sharp edges and with the rest of the screen in shadow. But in reality the light bends in such a way as to make many bright bands and dark bands, and no sharp edges at all.

Now, what sort of shadow is cast if we cut a second, identical pair of slits in the barrier, interleaved with the existing pair, so that we have four slits at intervals of one-tenth of a millimetre? We might expect the pattern to look almost exactly like Figure 2.6.

quantum-experiment

After all, the first pair of slits, by itself, casts the shadows in Figure 2.6, and as I have just said, the second pair, by itself, would cast the same pattern, shifted about a tenth of a  millimetre to the side — in almost the same place. We even know that light beams normally pass through each other unaffected. So the two pairs of slits together should give essentially the same pattern again, though twice as bright and slightly more blurred.

In reality, though, what happens is nothing like that. The real shadow of a barrier with four straight, parallel slits is shown in Figure 2.7(a). For comparison I have repeated, below it, the illustration of the two-slit pattern (Figure 2.7(b)). Clearly, the four-slit shadow is not a combination of two slightly displaced two-slit shadows, but has a new and more complicated pattern. In this pattern there are places, such as the point marked X, which are dark on the four-slit pattern, but bright on the two-slit pattern. These places were bright when there were two slits in the barrier, but went dark when we cut a second pair of slits for the light to pass through. Opening those slits has interfered with the light that was previously arriving at X.

quatum-light

So, adding two more light sources darkens the point X; removing them illuminates it again. How? One might imagine two photons heading towards X and bouncing off each other like billiard balls. Either photon alone would have hit X, but the two together interfere with each other so that they both end up elsewhere. I shall show in a moment that this explanation cannot be true. Nevertheless, the basic idea of it is inescapable: something must be coming through that second pair of slits to prevent the light from the first pair from

So, whatever causes interference behaves like light.

What should we expect to happen when these experiments are performed with only one photon at a time?

But what we surely could not observe is any place on the screen, such as X, that receives photons when two slits are open, but which goes dark when two more are opened.

Yet that is exactly what we do observe. However sparse the photons are, the shadow pattern remains the same. Even when the experiment is done with one photon at a time, none of them is ever observed to arrive at X when all four slits are open. Yet we need only close two slits for the flickering at X to resume.

So, if the photons do not split into fragments, and are not being deflected by other photons, what does deflect them? When a single photon at a time is passing through the apparatus, what can be coming through the other slits to interfere with it?

Since different interference patterns appear when we cut slits at other places in the screen, provided that they are within the beam, shadow photons must be arriving all over the illuminated part of the screen whenever a tangible photon arrives. Therefore there are many more shadow photons than tangible ones. How many? Experiments cannot put an upper bound on the number, but they do set a rough lower bound. In a laboratory the largest area that we could conveniently illuminate with a laser might be about a square metre, and the smallest manageable size for the holes might be about a thousandth of a millimetre. So there are about 1012 (one trillion) possible hole-locations on the screen. Therefore there must be at least a trillion shadow photons accompanying each tangible one.

Thus we have inferred the existence of a seething, prodigiously complicated, hidden world of shadow photons.

Interference is not a special property of photons alone. Quantum theory predicts, and experiment confirms, that it occurs for every sort of particle. So there must be hosts of shadow neutrons accompanying every tangible neutron, hosts of shadow electrons.

It follows that reality is a much bigger thing than it seems, and most of it is invisible. The objects and events that we and our instruments can directly observe are the merest tip of the iceberg.

For similar reasons, we might think of calling the shadow particles, collectively, a parallel universe, for they too are affected by tangible particles only through interference phenomena. But we can do better than that. For it turns out that shadow particles are partitioned among themselves in exactly the same way as the universe of tangible particles is partitioned from them. In other words, they do not form a single, homogeneous parallel universe vastly larger than the tangible one, but rather a huge number of parallel universes, each similar in composition to the tangible one, and each obeying the same laws of physics, but differing in that the particles are in different positions in each universe.

A remark about terminology. The word ‘universe’ has traditionally been used to mean ‘the whole of physical reality’. In that sense there can be at most one universe. We could stick to that definition, and say that the entity we have been accustomed to calling ‘the universe’ — namely, all the directly perceptible matter and energy around us, and the surrounding space — is not the whole universe after all, but only a small portion of it. Then we should have to invent a new name for that small, tangible portion. A new word, multiverse, has been coined to denote physical reality as a whole.

Thus we have reached the conclusion of the chain of reasoning that begins with strangely shaped shadows and ends with parallel universes.

The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution. It is not some troublesome, optional interpretation emerging from arcane theoretical considerations. It is the explanation — the only one that is tenable — of a remarkable and counter-intuitive reality.

Many of those Davids are at this moment writing these very words. Some are putting it better.  Others have gone for a cup of tea.

Desutsche goes on to explain how every aspect of our universe is impacted by trillions of shadow universes and that our universe is a shadow universe to trillions of universes.

Imagine… we are… every fiber of our being… and all we see and hear and feel is composed of… and connected to… and in touch with… everything in our universe… and trillions more universes!

Here is my theory on how we can use this knowledge to fine tune our thinking and integrate it with our intuition:

Our beta works in four wave forms… beta, alpha, theta and delta.

The beta waves tap into the local news.  This is the part of our being that takes care of the here and now…the space around us.  These brain waves dominate our logical thinking.

Our alpha waves connect us to the regional news…a much deeper and broader area of intelligence too vast for our prefrontal logical brain to compute on its own. When we tap into alpha we get intuitive creative flashes we could never just think up logically.

Theta connect brain waves connect with the global news…an even deeper vaster level of intelligence and finally we reach delta.

Delta waves are our connection to the universal news right down to our quantum state and perhaps trillions of shadow universes. These are the brain waves that allow us to dream and do multi things in varied places combining the past and future all at the same time!

This is an intelligence so vast that we cannot even imagine it.  This is yota-yota yotabytes of data… compared to our brains that process at 64K.   We must be in a dream state where the physical boundaries strip away.  In delta we can be in two places at once, know all things and even fly… yet stil be in the ground at the same time… full potentiality.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely with our logic and have a way to gear the data down into usable form, we gain unimaginable intellect.  Many would say we are in a super state or when processing information in this way we could describe ourselves as being “in the zone”.

Assuming the theory that Stonehenge was built around harmonic interference patterns we need to thank our ancestors for understanding and sharing this knowing in such a durable way.

We can use this knowledge of the ancients to enhance our understanding so our mental and physical abilities improve.  We can gain inner improvements… greater flexibility… more intelligence… broader perspective… the ability to see what we know but did not know.   These are keys that allow us to tap into a power of knowledge for greater wealth.

This is the type of knowing that allows us to retire anytime from the rat race and live and do what we truly desire.

Yet the course went really well… in more way than most delegates had expected.

As one delegate put it… “This course has saved my life.”

In a moment we’ll share an amazing exhibition of what the human mind can do.  First let’s discuss a secret for unlocking your genius within, for improved health, wealth and joy.

Amazing right?

Each of us has some form of genius and music helps unlock our own unique, amazing energy.  This is a universal fact!

An excerpt from a Science Daily article “Language Of Music Really Is Universal, Study Finds” says:  Native African people who have never even listened to the radio before can nonetheless pick up on happy, sad, and fearful emotions in Western music, according to a new report published online on March 19th in Current Biology. The result shows that the expression of those three basic emotions in music can be universally recognized, the researchers said.

“These findings could explain why Western music has been so successful in global music distribution, even in music cultures that do not as strongly emphasize the role of emotional expression in their music,” said Thomas Fritz of the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences.

The expression of emotions is a basic feature of Western music, and the capacity of music to convey emotional expressions is often regarded as a prerequisite to its appreciation in Western cultures, the researchers explained. In other musical traditions, however, music is often appreciated for other qualities, such as group coordination in rituals.

In the new study, Fritz, Stefan Koelsch, and their colleagues wanted to find out whether the emotional aspects of Western music could be appreciated by people who had no prior exposure to it. Previous studies had asked similar questions about people with little experience with a particular musical form, for instance Westerners listening to Hindustani music, they said. But to really get at musical universals requires participants who are completely naïve to Western music.

Fritz enlisted members of the Mafa, one of about 250 ethnic groups in Cameroon. He traveled to the extreme north of the Mandara mountain ranges, where they live, with a laptop and sun collector to supply electricity in his backpack.

Their studies showed that both Western and Mafa listeners, who had never before heard Western music, could recognize emotional expressions of happiness, sadness, and fear in the music more often than would be expected by chance. However, they report that the Mafa showed considerable variability in their performance, with two of twenty-one study participants performing at chance level.
