Music, Harmony & Healing – Introduction:
by Gerhard Fankhauser
Wise men throughout the ages have considered music to be a sacred art and a bridge between earth and heaven. Beyond all cultural and religious differences, beyond nationality, profession and age there is a longing we all know; the longing for harmony. Music reveals that universal law of harmony and speaks directly to our soul. Music carries a timeless wisdom and for some of the great masters of science and mysticism, such as Pythagoras, the universe was based on musical principals; a great divine harmony or symphony of vibration. In many of the holy books of mankind the infinite sound is the first expression of the divine spirit, the nada brahma of the Vedas, the word of the Bible or the abstract sound of the Sufis.
Music and the great mystery are forever interwoven and one does not exist without the other. Sound and rhythm are the main primal forces that bring the universe into manifestation, and by sound and vibration the divine force creates and moves throughout existence. One of the greatest secrets of music is to be found within each tone and its overtones or harmonics. Overtones in their essence are pure harmonies or codes of harmony and carry great healing power. Overtone singing is a transcendental art and leads into a more universal and transpersonal sphere of ourselves. Overtones reveal the law of vibration, and because all life is in a state of vibration, harmonics offer a great insight into fundamental principals of harmony of creation and existence.
In its very essence, making music is a primal experience of reunion with nature and spirit, renewing and balancing our energies and providing us with tools for our spiritual growth and vision. By making music, singing, playing, drumming or dancing we establish an immediate resonance to nature and the Divine, plug into something grander than ourselves, and experience the field of vibration and harmony that we are. Learning to listen, feel, breath, tone, sing, move and dance is very helpful in creating happiness and a peaceful life. Through clear intention and practise we can unlock the blocks within our body, mind and spirit, and balance and heal ourselves.
Music is the religion of the heart, the universal language bridging all the different traditions. It is our prayer and devotion, a celebration and marriage between mind and feeling, a melting and dissolving of the borders and separation between people, cultures and religions. There is no better way than music for the sacred communion to take place and religion has always used music to provide the sacredness and harmonic field connecting and uniting all. Music is a big ocean to dive into and experience a taste of harmony, beauty and love.
This is a time of great transformation, and mankind and the planet are facing major challenges. In this decade of human history, a grand cosmic cycle comes to an end and marks a new area to come, a new age of human civilization. Humanity has to align itself to a higher vibration of consciousness, to a new energy. The role of music in this evolution is a very important one, for music can help us with the process of new alignment and to stay in harmony with ourselves and mother earth. Music is sacred and can be the carrier wave for a new consciousness, bringing healing, peace and unity for ourselves, humanity and the planet.
