Sound – Below 20Hz and Above 20,000 Hz

Standard

“Sound, generally speaking, is an air event that produces a wave; frequencies audible to humans are usually between about 20 Hz to about 20,000 Hz. Low frequency sound, below 20 Hz, is infrasound. In theory, these low frequencies resonate not with our ears, but with our bodies. Infrasound can activate our sympathetic nervous system, which regulates things like skin temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate, or resonate with our eyeballs to produce visual disruptions — a “smearing,” weird lights, and afterimages, kind of like the splotches of color produced when you press your fingers to your closed eyes. Depending on how you and your cultural context interpret odd experiences, it can make you see ghosts or aliens or psychedelic lights, feel as if you’ve been touched by the divine, or just a bit unsettled. [This article is about exposing people to the sounds below 20 Hz.]

The link between infrasound and anomalous experiences first emerged in a 1998 paper published by Vic Tandy and Tony Lawrence in the Journal for the Society of Psychical Research.” The Boston Globe, INFRASOUND By Linda Rodriguez McRobbie, October 28, 2016.

One of the ways to create infrasound is the throat singing of Tibet and Nepal. At the other end of the spectrum is the sound above human range that is made by sitar and other instruments. Because we humans are made up of units of vibration, sound, we react to it in our bodies and minds, even when it is below or above the range we can hear with our ears.

Likewise, our subtle bodies, the chakras, react to the sound vibrations of the mantras we chant out loud, whisper, or silently at the highest vibration.i

The above article is a great reminder of the huge power of our mantra practice to heal our bodies and minds and change our lives.  The Gayatri Mantra can take you all the way to enlightenment.

Happy Chanting,

Rev. Satyabhama Ashley-Farrand

About Satyabhama Ashley-Farrand

Satyabhama met Satguru Sant Keshavadas in December 1980 at his Temple of Cosmic Religion in Washington, DC. She also met Thomas Ashley-Farrand/Namadeva Acharya (1940-2010) the same evening, and a year and a week later they were married by Satgurus Sant Keshavadas and Rama Mata. Satyabhama studied with Sant Keshavadas and Rama Mata and with Namadeva for the next 3 decades. She became a Vedic priest in her own right in the mid-1980s and worked with Namadeva Acharya in performing and teaching ancient mantra techniques and spiritual practices. In 2008 and 2009, like Namadeva Acharya, she received guru diksha to be a guru from Satguru Rama Mata, Sadguru Sant Keshavadas' widow, to whom he passed the lineage in 1997. When Namadeva Acharya discovered that his death was imminent, he told Satyabhama that he wanted her to continue their mission of teaching the dharma, and he gave her a powerful initiation to enable her to teach his workshops with his spiritual energy. Since then, she has continued to travel and teach and also to manage the Gayatri Temple in Beaverton, Oregon, with the encouragement of Satguru Rama Mata and her family. Satyabhama has a B.A. from New York University and a Law Degree from Southwestern School of Law. Dedicated to serving God through humanity, she is a certified mediator and maintained a private law practice from 1981-2007. Prior to her law practice, Satyabhama worked to further the status of women through her involvement with the National Organization for Women and the National Women's Political Caucus. In 2004, Satyabhama assumed management of Saraswati Publications, LLC and Sanatana Dharma Satsang, Inc., a 501(c)3 religious organization. She is committed to making the world a better place in which Divine Law becomes the law of life.
