Sacred Sound:

Sounding the Codes

Sounding the Codes
Divine Proportion, Divine Harmonies, and Sacred Sound

                              Zacciah Blackburn

The universe unfolds in divine ratios and proportions.
These have been understood, articulated, and utilized through the sacred arts, sacred geometries and architecture, studies of sacred sound, and so many other esoteric arts, throughout human history.
Divine Proportion.  Sacred Form.
Divine Ratios.  Sacred Harmonies.

This is how and why sound and music are such unifying and enhancing principals for wellness.
The Harmonies devised in sacred music are devised from specific ratios and principals of the unfolding universe which exists in these harmonic intervals. 

All of life, from the finest molecules to the swirling galaxies obey, unfold, and intertwine within these sacred relationships.

All is in resonance, and Divine Form.
All is devised of Divine Proportions.

When we come into harmony with any living thing, we come into harmony with a living aspect of Creation, which resides in these Divine Proportions, and Harmonic relationships.
Our modern musical system is based upon these principals of Divine relationships, or intervals, and scales.
Thus, when we acclimate ourselves to any aspect of the Natural world of Creation, we come into harmony with Creation itself.

These are evident to anyone whom enters nature with a listening mind.  The balance, rhythms, and harmonies of nature are easily discernible to the untrained listener.  Simply allowing the senses to be awakened by the sounds, sights, and Beauty of Nature, feed and nourish us as Creation intended.  If you have not heard God’s Cricket Chorus by David Carson and Jim Wilson, we highly suggest you get a copy of it.  It is simply two tracks of cricket sounds.  One is the natural sounds of crickets as you would hear them in a field at night.  The other is the natural recording of cricket sounds slowed down to match the average length of a human life span.  The sounds are provocative and life altering.  One is literally bathed in the voices of an angelic choir singing praises and celebration to all of Creation.  This is something I truly believe we are all meant to be here enjoying, and doing.  The recording will demonstrate the nature of harmonic proportions we are bathed in at all times when we allow ourselves to be acclimated to the natural world around us.  (We can provide a copy of this to you if you want to hear it.)
Bird sounds, whale songs, the rustling of trees, the babbling of brooks, all lend to this harmonic choir of nature.

This is also very evident to those familiar with the Golden Proportion, the Fibonacci sequence, and how nature shows us this unfolding, from microscopic entities to the unfurling of spiral galaxies. 

By adjusting our frequency to a harmonious, or Coherent frequency, or aspect of Creation, we open ourselves to the “Coding” of that energy, or encoding of information within it.

This is what is happening whenever we come into harmony with an aspect of life, or all of life, whenever we expose ourself to the natural order of the natural world.
These harmonies and resonances co-exist throughout all of nature, again, from molecular levels to galatial increments.

At a Quantum level of understanding, elements of any atom come into Coherent frequency with one another.  These have been described by physicists as musical chords.  In some of the foremost theories of Quantum Physics, the most minute aspect of matter yet imagined is defined as “strings resonating at different frequencies.”  The only difference between you and I, or the atom of an apple, are the frequencies with which we resonate, at a sub-atomic level.

These frequencies create the interrelationship of the elements of each atom, and are a reflection at the microcosmic level of the nature of universal Creation, which is intended to be in harmonic relationship, and intervals, or increments, one with another.

Where we live in harmony with other aspects of Creation, we are in harmony with all of Creation, as it all unfolds from the same Divine Proportions, understood by our ancient spiritual lineage holders through such esoteric arts as Sacred Geometry, Color/Art and Music.  They are interwoven into the human form, the human energy field, and the fabric of consciousness itself.  Ancient temples and architecture abound with these Sacred Proportions.  The ancient mystics understood and utilized these principals, enhancing states of wellness and activating enlivened states of consciousness, by living, meditating, sounding, and praying in these ancient temples and dwellings.

            Harmonics was one of the four disciplines studied in the Pythagorean Quadrivinium....
            In the Platonic tradition, the intention was to lift the soul out of the realm of mere opinion, by attunement with the rations and proportions
            contained in the harmonies and rhythms of music.  This allows the soul to pass into the Intelligible realm of knowledge, moving through the
            realm of (mathematical) reasoning, up into the direct intuition (gnosis) of the world of pure Forms, the ratios themselves.
                                                                                                                                                         --The Golden Section, Scott Olsen

By attuning our awareness and consciousness to these harmonic frequencies, it assists us to lift & hold ourselves within these coherent frequencies, and open to the Coherent wisdom within them, more easily.

This can easily be demonstrated by a skilled sound therapist whom is acclimated to enhancing states of consciousness through Sacred Sound.

Modern research has shown that the human heart resonates in harmonic frequencies when it resides in coherent emotions, those emotions defined as enhancing states of wellness, measurable with new technology.  When the heart is excited by states of coherence, it can be further activated by bringing focused awareness of the mind, into the heart, creating an even more enhanced harmonic field.  Review the work of the Heart Math Institute if you wish more information on this subject.

The work of Dr. Hans Jenny and Alexander Lauterwasser, are leading researchers in the science of Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, and, more specifically, how sound affects matter.  Images of their work easily guide us to understand the inherent symmetries of sound vibration and its geometric unfolding within the physical dimensions.  (We can provide books and DVD’s on this subject if you want further study, or search Cymatics on line.)  

The ancients understood this, as do present day wisdom keepers of ancient and indigenous cultures, whom have safeguarded both these wisdoms and esoteric technologies and techniques, until these prophesied times of transformation, in which we are living.

By combining Harmonic Frequencies of the Heart, which hold a true wave form in resonance with creative impulses, with clarity of the mind, including one’s focus of awareness and intention, we can manifest these Harmonic fields of understanding.  By utilizing our voice in the process, we can amplify, or make more manifest these streams, or fields of energy.

Within the ancient temples of the world, there are bodies of wisdom being held, which are accessed through these same principals.  Most people working with North American indigenous wisdom, knows that the body of the Earth principal, and Stones, or the “Stone People” within her, “Hold”, or store knowledge.  The mountains of Vermont are some of the oldest in the world, and hold the ancient history of the Earth.  The wisdom keepers of the region might say this can be accessed via the consciousness of the Stones, the Stone People.  Those working with crystals also work with this principal.  Crystal technologies not only hold, but enhance, amplify and transmit knowledge, or information.  These properties not only are utilized by mystical sciences and holistic health practitioners, it is the foundation of our most radical advances in technology in the last century, including radio transmissions, and computer encryptions.  What many do not know, is that many ancient cultures anchored, or stored their wisdom through vibrational frequencies, in the stones of their ancient temples.  It is the resonant frequencies of the stone, in attunement with one’s own consciousness, which create the vehicle to anchor or store these energies, or information in the stone.  Or vice versa, it is one’s resonant frequency, or state of consciousness, in attunement with the frequency of the stone, which allows one to move, store or access information within the body of the stone.  It is not mere co-incidence many of the ancient stone temples of the world were made with crystalline embedded stones, such as granite, which are known for their properties, to pass or store energy.
This first came to my understanding in practice in the ancient stone lodges of Vermont.  Those of you who do not know of the stone temples can find some information on line.  However, they are not well known outside of certain esoteric circles, or the Native American community.  There is remarkable evidence of ancient pre-historic origins, possibly from cultures of other continents.
Through Sacred Sound and awareness practices, the unseen “wisdom keepers” and guardians of these sacred temples have communed with me, and showed me how to hold frequency of awareness in the heart and mind, and combine them into sound codes to create a “key” which opens the “libraries” of these temples of ancient star beings and wisdom keepers to the modern way traveler whom comes with pure intent.  Pure intent is a major catalyst of the proposition.  It is clarity of heart and mind which allow entrance into the pure realms of light and sound, the realms of deities and holy ones of the “Akul”, the ancient ones of all cultures still here to assist us in our evolution.
Through time I have been led to living wisdom keepers of ancient indigenous cultures, and others whom have helped me understand this even further.   
Computer memories store information in similar ways.

Modern physicists are finding that even greater information than current computers can imagine utilization of storage, is possible, through the use of quantum electron computers.  It is my understanding, that because of the immense capacity available through the harmonic intervals, or chords, of electrons isolated in communion with one another, small numbers of electrons can create a greater capacity to store information than all computers in the world, combined.  It is the nature of the universe to come into harmony with itself, and whenever any living, animate organisms, and even what many consider inanimate objects, come into proximity with one another, they tend toward this harmony, community, or entrainment.  It is one of the great principals of sound therapy, only slowly becoming understood, as the union of the sciences of sacred art, music, and geometry begin to merge, compare notes, with modern physics, biology, and other sciences.  This body of physics, whose study began a few centuries ago, with  the observation that clocks on the same wall come into synchronization, or “entrainment”, with each other, is seen when women living together come into moon cycle together, students in a classroom entrain with the brainwave activity of the lecturer, and on and on.  We now know that forests communicate, and commune with the microbiology of the soil around it.  Heart cells of different species come into coherent rhythm, or entrainment, with each other when in proximity.  Stars, planets, galaxies, all work on these principals.  It is no longer a mythical metaphorical approximation to speak of the symphony of the cosmos.

The revolution of Venus, as viewed from Earth, over an 8 year pattern, reveals the sacred geometries available to us, which duplicate the patterns of flowers, and other life forms on earth.  Many orbital bodies show such sacred geometries, or relationships, to each other when viewing one from the other.   See

All levels of consciousness work toward coherence and entrainment, or community.  Those with the stronger pulse tend to draw into entrainment with them, those with the lesser pulse.  If we use our awareness and focused intention to seek to come into resonance with a heightened frequency of consciousness, we shall succeed as we learn to refine our awareness, and remove the obstacles or obscurations to our awareness and growth.

How many of us do not wish to come into greater states of illumination and conscious awareness?  If we do, then by practicing attainment of these states is the greatest method of achievement.  If we do not understand the nature of their resonance, or frequency, or how to attain them, then we may have more difficulty in attaining to them, and it behooves us to look for a teacher who can assist us to reach those frequencies of illumination.

Sacred Sound is one of the most coherent methods of attaining to these states, for it allows a viable method of sensory integration of the frequencies we are seeking to reach.

By creating a resonant field of coherent emotion through the heart, and utilizing focused awareness of the mind, and voicing that, it will assist us to come into those resonant frequencies of consciousness, and open doors to innate knowledge we each hold. 

The combination of frequency of awareness or intention, and heart felt emotion, is the key.  Sound is the carrier into the inner dimensions of harmony, joy, and awakened ecstasy.

The same principals can be utilized by the non-initiate to access deeper states of consciousness.

These states are accessible to each of us.  They are our birth right, and joy.
We can come into them via our own exploration of our inherent Divine Nature.
And by exploring sacred relationship with all around us.
