In my work as a Sound Healer, I have experimented with several techniques and instruments. Among these, my set of Pythagorean Tuning Forks is one of my favourites. They are gentle and powerful, subtle yet very effective, with the capacity to affect the nervous system at a very deep level.
The musical intervals of these tuning forks are based on the Pythagorean Tuning, that is, the single frequency of each tone of the scale is derived from the Harmonic Series. The harmonic (or overtone) series can be considered as the “natural” musical system, as it reflects laws of physics and acoustics, and it expresses specific proportions that can be found in nature.
We are constantly surrounded by music, whether it is the music we choose or the music we don’t. For most people, the majority of the music they listen to is western music. Now, without going deeply into technical details, almost all western music that is performed on “fixed tuning instruments” (keyboards and guitars) uses a tonal system called Equal Temperament which determines the tuning of each note of the musical scales in use. This tuning system is the result of years of experimentation on how to make fixed tuning instruments like keyboards easy to build, tune and play. Human Tuning
But how often do we think that the music we love is basically, from a physical point of view, out of tune?
Or how often do we think of all the square angles our nervous systems encounter in our living spaces every single day?
How many square angles do you see when you are in Nature?
The nervous system is our interface with the physical world, an incredibly sophisticated and wonderful instrument that deserves a good tune as often as possible! Human tuning
