The Solfeggio Frequences
‘Ut queant laxis
‘So that your servants may with loosened voices resound the wonders of your deeds, cleanse the guilt from our stained (polluted) lips, O Saint John.’
Thus goes the 9th Century Gregorian Hymn to St John the Baptist that lies at the heart of the ‘Solfeggio Frequencies’. According to Dr Leonard Horowitz, the first word of the first six Latin lines begins with the name and note of the ascending ‘Solfeggio scale’ – a scale supposedly nefariously ‘lost’ or ‘altered’ by the Catholic Church and Pope Gregory I.
The story behind their ‘rediscovery’ is as intriguing as a Dan Brown novel. In 1974 Dr Joseph Pulao discovered a set of “healing” frequencies whilst meditating on Chapter 7 of the Book of Numbers in the Bible. Identifying six numbers based on a repetition of numbers found in Verses 12- 83, Pulao applied a Pythagorean reduction, resulting in the identification of a ‘scale’ of frequencies ranging from 396-852Hz. Later, three further frequencies were added to this ‘scale’ using the principles of sacred geometry (to produce a nine-pointed star) altering the original six-frequency scale to nine.
During his subsequent research, Pulao claims that several attempts were made on his life - including an attack by two men in black with a laser gun - theatrically underscoring that perhaps he was on to something. Leonard Horowitz then championed Pulao’s work in his book ‘Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse’, naming them the ‘Solfeggio Frequencies’, and claiming they created positive shifts in those exposed to them. Horowitz believed that these sounds opened up a channel of communication with the Divine, a belief echoed in the claimed effects of the original six Frequencies:
UT – 396 Hz – Liberation of Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz - Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
SO – 741 Hz – Cleansing/Expression/Solutions
LA – 852 Hz – Awakening Intuition
The additional frequencies added later using the principles of sacred geometry are:
174 Hz - For emotional and physical pain
285 Hz - For resetting the body to the default mode
936 Hz - For reconnection with the Divine
Internet research comes up against Horowitz like a brick wall. His book is the primary resource material, and many websites make breathless, wild claims about the Frequencies, especially the 528Hz so-called love frequency claimed to create miracles, and which, according to Horowitz, is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA. Such claims inevitably court controversy.
Musical theorists and detractors assert that the Frequencies do not form a harmonic set, and that Horowitz’s claim regarding the Hymn to St John is untrue. By coining the term ‘Solfeggio’, Horowitz has also misused an established musical term already linked to the Hymn to St John, and there have been dark suggestions that the Frequencies were used for mind control. Of course the source material of the Frequencies’ discovery raises one glaring question: how can the Bible contain coded information about the calibration of frequencies identified by Heinrich Hertz in the late 19th Century?
For the last eighteen months we have experimented using Solfeggio-tuned crystal bowls and instruments, and our experience of the Frequencies is not only do they work, but they seem to work in the way Horowitz claims. Working with one Solfeggio Frequency at a time, we discovered that certain frequencies had to be used judiciously, and that in healing practice people clearly reacted to a Frequency specific to their own personal history. Some found that their lives changed suddenly, whilst others noticed that incremental changes took place over a passage of time. Whatever an individual’s personal journey, we found that the Frequencies can and do provide a real tool for self-transformation, especially when used with the power of intent.
