Energy is Frequency

Energy is Frequency

Einstein said “energy is all there is.” Based on a vibrational energy field surrounding us, we are in a constant state of vibration so energy is frequency. Using this knowledge, we explore the importance of understanding the energy field and frequencies within our bodies.

Musical Entrainment

Music on the brain

What is entrainment and how does it relate to music? The basics of entrainment work when two rhythmical objects eventually sync with one another.

Musical frequencies resonate in the body while playing a musical instrument, especially wind instruments. Direct contact with the mouthpiece on either the teeth or lips makes it possible for wind players to “feel” the resonant frequencies within the body cavity.

Because musical frequencies vibrate within us, does this have an affect on the human body?
