Synopsis: In the growing field of "energy medicine" it is well known that our universe is created through patterns of frequency. Science is now documenting what mystics of many traditions have known for centuries, that everything in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms exist on a vibratory basis.
Healing has often been affected by such modalities as sound, light, music therapy, and various other energy medicine techniques that alter the frequency patterns of an individual.
Don Campbell, with his book The Mozart Effect: Tapping the Power of Music to Heal the Body, Strengthen the Mind, and Unlock the Creative Spirit, believes that listening to Mozart music boosts intelligence, and in The Mozart Effect for Children he claims that exposing children to classical music increases brain development. However, research does not support the claim that listening to Mozart can enhance spatial performance. Much like the “we only use 10% of our brains” myth, the belief that “listening to Mozart makes you smarter” has outlived its debunking. Or has it? Join us as we look at the impact of music and whether or not it music used for the specific purpose of expanding consciousness in the individual? And if so, is this why Masonic rituals use music in their ceremonies?
