Jonathan Goldman wrote The 7 Secrets of Sound Healing book. He listed seven secrets of sound healing and expanded on each one of them.

  1. Everything Is Vibration
  2. Intent Is Powerful
  3. We Are All Unique Vibratory Beings
  4. Silence Is Golden
  5. Our Voice Is The Most Healing Instrument
  6. There Are Many Notes In A Scale
  7. Sounds Can Change The World

Sounds Can Change the World

Racism and discrimination are a human-made issue. They must be resolved with human intervention. This requires a cohesive global unification where all human beings on earth must work together with the same intention to eradicate racism and discrimination all over the world. This requires a level of consciousness where we no longer view ourselves as isolated from others. Global collaborative work is required to face such a challenge.

I have attended many yoga and meditation retreats where the focus was to bring peace to the world. The influence of our group meditations was profound on me. I loved the powerful energy that filled me with light, peace and vitality. I came out of these retreats feeling a deep sense of liveliness and friendliness. My friends and other people attending the retreats reported feeling invigorated and motivated to live life in all its fullness.

Sound With Intention

The approach of sound healing is to recommend using a sound with intention. Frequency and intention generate healing. Vocalization and visualization generate manifestation, sound and belief that in turn yield an outcome.

Our intention, speech and communication style, feelings and beliefs can intensify the power and influence of sound. Sound, frequencies, tones and vocalizations can boost the power and influence of our meditations and prayers.

Sound and the mindfulness embedded in it create a force that can bring about a desired change. Prayers that are chanted aloud are more powerful than mental recitation. There is no need for a great number of people to chant in order to bring about change in world consciousness. A small cohesive group can produce a powerful outcome. Large demonstrations are not effective if there is no concentrated clear consciousness driving them.

Healing sounds can be personal or global. Global-healing sounds imply using frequency and intent to project healing to Mother Earth.

World Sound Healing Day

February 14th is World Sound Healing Day. People all over the world are encouraged to intone the sound “Ah” with an intention of peace and harmony. These “global sonic events are seen as an audible valentine of love” throughout the world aiming to make a difference.

The Sound “Ah”

The sound “Ah” is a vowel sound and is non-denominational, not associated with any culture, spiritual denomination, faith, or religion. The greater part of mystical traditions link the sound “Ah” with the heart chakra, the hub of love and compassion. It is believed that the sound “Ah” is one of the most powerful sounds on earth, particularly useful for inspiring compassion. It is as powerful as the well-known “OM” or "Aum" sound. Using either is a matter of personal preference.

Next time you find yourself in a disagreement with another person, especially someone close to you, it would be helpful if both of you sound “Ah” together. What has been seen time and again is that shortly after sounding it together, anger and discordant energy get transformed into kindness and compassion. The illusion of separateness disappears as you continue making sound together.

We manifest in our external environments what is in us. If we continue chanting “Ah” or “OM”, then we are bound to manifest love and gratefulness in our lives. If you have a hang-up with either of these two sounds, choose a sound that you feel comfortable with as long as chanting produces feelings of compassion and love in you.

From Personal to Global Change

The chanting must start with the resolve to bring personal change and development. In yoga, resolve is known as Sankalpa, a one-pointed resolution to focus on a particular goal. A Sankalpa is a tool meant to cultivate the will and to harmonize the mind and the body.

Once this has been accomplished, the aim to lead to global change would start.

Our thoughts, sounds, feelings, visualizations and meditations are part of the process of lifting up the vibratory rate of the earth.

Sound is a multidimensional energy. Numerous individuals, faiths and belief systems accept as true that consciousness exists outside the physical world and does not depend on the brain. It transcends time and space. Our minds are interconnected. When we work on one level, we influence other levels as well. When we bring change to our individual consciousness, we also influence the consciousness of the world. This is the basis of the belief in the power of prayer. Prayer is the intonation of words and/or chanting with a resolve.


  1. Sit in a quiet place where you know you will not be interrupted.
  2. Breathing slowly and mindfully in and out through the nose, feel your breath entering through your heart and leaving from the heart. This will help you relax and prepare for meditation.
  3. After a few breaths, start making a gentle “Ah” sound with each out-breath. Inhale softly through the nose and exhale through the mouth while making a soft “Ah” sound.
  4. After a few gentle exhalations with the “Ah” sound, let your voice become a little louder but stay in your comfort zone.
  5. If you feel inclined, imagine the earth immersed with the energy of peace and harmony with your chanting the sound “Ah”. If you do not feel inclined to do so, then it is fine to continue without imagining.

You can benefit yourself and the world by making this chanting a regular practice.

      In the beginning, it’s fine to use either one to find which works best for us. But after a while, it’s better to stick with one as the vibrations of a specific seed sound works in the long run.

      I like all the sounds. Seems one day one might energize but another day it soothes. ??
