• Is there a connection between sound, vibrations and physical reality?  Do sound and vibrations have the potential to create?  Below are two sound pictures.  In 1787, a jurist, musician and physicist, Ernst Chladni, published his Discoveries Concerning the Theory of Music.  His work laid the foundation for the discipline within physics that came to be called acoustics, the science of sound.  He found a way to make visible what sound waves generate.  His work demonstrated that sound actually does affect physical matter and that it has the quality of creating geometric patterns.
  • Chladni drew a violin bow  perpendicularly across the edge of a flat plate covered with sand to produce patterns and shapes known today as Chladni figures.
  • Two hundred years later in 1967, Hans Jenny, a Swiss doctor, artist and researcher published The Structure and Dynamics of Waves and Vibrations.  He took various materials like sand, spores, iron filings, water, and viscous substances, and by placing them on vibrating metal plates and membranes, he showed how various shapes and motion patterns developed.  These shapes and patterns vary from nearly perfectly ordered and stationary to those that are turbulently developing, organic and constantly in motion.  Jenny called this new area of research cymatics, which comes from the Greek kyma, wave.  His work showed that not only could you hear a melody – you could see it, too!
  • Hans Jenny worked with frequency and amplitude and found that patterns responded to varing degrees of amplitude and frequencies.  He also developed an instrument called a tonoscope which yielded the amazing possibility of being able to see the physical image of the vowel, tone or song a human being produced directly.
  •   Incredibly, Jenny found that when the vowels of the ancient languages of Hebrew and Sanskrit were pronounced, the sand took the shape of the written symbols for these vowels, while modern languages on the other hand, did not generate the same result!  How is this possible?  Did the ancients know this?  Is there something to the concept of “sacred language,” which both of these are sometimes called?  Jenny also pointed out the resemblance between the shapes and patterns of cymatics and those we see around us recurring in nature.
  • If you type “cymatics” in your search engine, you will see a lot of fascinating informaion including many YouTube videos about this field of study.  I’m sure you, like me, have felt the affect music and tones have on your physical well being.   Music and sound can excite us or calm us, put us to sleep or keep us wide awake.  It’s an amazing universe we live in.
  • For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’:  “There’s much more to music than what we hear with our ears.  We are greatly affected by the invisible power of sound.”

About Earlynn

Earlynn is a spunky mother, grandmother and yes, even a great grandmother. I have always been drawn to things spiritual from the time I was very young. Over the years I have read, studied and prayed that God would use me to bring comfort to troubled minds. That is my purpose more than anything else, but along the way I have also lived a very happy life. I love my family....5 children, 5 inlaws, 18 grandkids and four great grandkids. I am a master cake decorator, I love gardening, I am passionate about health and nutrition. I love parties and gatherings of family and friends. I love cooking and at least twice each year I host dinner for 50. I love writing, teaching and public speaking. I love my sweetheart. We met when we were only 10 years old and will soon celebrate our 50th anniversary. Everything I do is centered on my spiritual beliefs and I know love is the answer to all of life's problems. Join me on my web site as we explore many ideas, laugh a little and love a lot.
