What is Your Resonant Frequency?
are, like everything else in our universe, composed of many
vibrations moving at very different frequencies. Some, like
matter, are moving slowly and some, like light energy, very
quickly. One of the slower vibrations is sound and each of
us has a resonant frequency in sound.
words we speak in everyday conversation create sounds at a
characteristic habitual pitch which we repeat
literally thousands of times every day. We
vary our speech but we return to this frequency
over and over again. Similarly, it has been shown that when
we sing to ourselves or pick a note
to tone out of the blue (like the Om in Yoga class)
we almost always pick that same frequency.
have all had the experience of being mysteriously attracted
or repelled by someone's voice. Certain pieces
of music seem to travel right to our heart while others leave
us cold. If that person's voice or that music
is vibrating at our resonant frequency
it is very compelling and the opposite is true as well!
your Resonant Frequency
a result of being a professional musician for many years who
is often asked to pick up tunes by ear, I find I can quickly
recognize and capture the dominant tone in a person's speech.
In addition, recent progress in digital recording makes it
possible to analyze spoken words as musical
notes. The notes at the top of this page are musical
representations of actual spoken words.
have conducted tests to find out if people prefer music that
is played in their home key (or resonant frequency). I created
two identical pieces of music transposed into two keys, one
of which was the home frequency of the individual. In a blind
test, many people remarked that the music composed
in their home frequency felt comfortable
and pleasing and that they felt at odds with the other piece.
And this from the exact same composition!
Music that is Tuned to Your Frequency
overlooked phenomenon suggested to me that everyone should
have the opportunity to have music that is a custom
fit to their tonal personality. So I have composed
and recorded a series of unique meditation CDs
that are available in each keynote
in the 12-tone scale so they can closely fit each individual's
resonant frequency. Each CD contains four 10-minute
meditations in your frequency or key. Click
