There is a lot of misinformation about the healing properties of the so called "Solfeggio Frequencies": a set of frequencies that are supposed to form a scale. In this post I attempt to explain why I don't consider these scale to be neither ancient nor magic. I do believe in the existence of sacred, pure tones; but these ones to me are a fake. Read more about truly pure tones on our website: http://transcendentaltones.com/index....

Read my articles about the theory of harmony from a spiritual perspective here: http://transcendentaltones.com/index....

My answer to a recent user question: "Are you expecting some divinity to come with the tone? What myth exactly did you "bust"?"

The fact that some people do expect some kind of divinity from 417 Hz as opposed to, say 418 is part of the misinformation I try to demystify. Here's a frequently copy-pasted excerpt regarding the Solfeggio frequencies:

"These original sound frequencies were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during religious masses. These powerful frequencies were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Dr. Leonard Horowitz. I give honor to both of these gentleman for the part they've played in helping return these lost frequencies back to humanity."

My video explains why the Solfeggio frequency set could not have possibly been used in any work with any musical meaning, because these frequencies simply do not conform a harmonic set. My second argument is that the fact that these frequencies show numerological beauty when expressed in Hz convey no meaning for the tones themselves, because a tone can be expressed in any number of arbitrary units of measurement. The minute you express these exact same tones in, say wavelength units, the nice numerology disappears.

Conclusion: I believe the Solfeggio Frequencies story was invented and/or exaggerated, maybe to appeal to people's feelings and attraction to the mysterious and try to sell something. As you say, any tone is de facto real and can have a positive effect on your Being, so stick to that and don't pay attention to the quacks.

Love,
Guillermo
