Sound. It lives, moves, and breathes in us, through us, and all around us. Wherever we are, sound is emanating, vibrating and affecting us on a deep level. Sound is sacred. Sound creates. Sound can soothe. Sound unites.

Human beings are 70% water. Water is scientifically proven to be a better conductor for sound waves than air. Sound is essentially moving through our bodies all day long. We are experiencing sounds we can hear and those we cannot, good vibrations and those that irritate us. As highly conductive beings, it is important to pay attention to how sound FEELS in our body, not just how we hear it in our ears or process it in our brains.

In the digital age, we have lost our connection to the power of real, LIVE sound vibration. The binary language of 1’s and 0’s of computers cannot provide the natural vibration that is needed for humans to feel sound in the way it is intended. In our technologically advanced societies, humans are being fed digital music and sounds that I believe hinder our natural ability to be healthy, whole, vibrant beings. Reclaiming and opening ourselves back up to natural sound experiences will be vital for a positive evolution of humanity in the future.

But before we talk about the future, let’s take a moment to consider the distant past and the origins of sound.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

This is a well-known quote from the Bible that speaks to the beginning of Creation. But how often do people contemplate or question what the “Word” was?  It wasn’t a word of spoken language because language didn’t exist in the beginning. I believe that the “Word” was a low-resonant sound vibration, a frequency, that put Creation into motion. Let us shift our perspective and realize that sound is the creating force.

So, if sound creates, then what does that mean for the potential of the human voice?
