Transforming Fear to Joy

Peak Experiences — the Good Vibrations of the Universe

Peak spiritual experiences are states of oneness, bliss or non-duality where we feel completely connected with everything and everyone around us.  This is not a state privy only to those deemed as enlightened.  Every one of us has had at least one, if not many, peak experiences.

For instance, when I was 10 years old, my mother’s softball team was in the playoff game of a tournament when their left fielder sprained her ankle.  Without another player to take her place, the team was going to forfeit until my mother said, “Helen can play.”  It was the bottom of the ninth inning, and my mom had just bunted in the winning run (3 to 2).  If we could hold them off from scoring, the win would be ours.  Fast forward to a runner on second and their clean-up hitter in the batter’s box.  By now my heart was wedged in my throat, and as I heard the mighty crack of the bat hitting the ball, I knew to turn and run for the fence.  Sure enough, the ball was headed my way and over my head.  At the last moment, I reached my glove as far as I could and by some miracle caught the bottom half of the ball.  I still remember every second of that “icecream cone” catch, especially the words of the sports announcer, “Like mother, like daughter.”  Remembering the event today still brings tears to my eyes because my mother was my hero.  A blissful state for a 10-year old is being hailed a hero.

Reflecting on this childhood experience today, I see the greater “mystery” that enabled my success — my mother’s positive belief in me raised my own consciousness.  And, when our consciousness is raised, our vibrational frequency more closely resembles that of the universe.  This elevation brings us closer to union or oneness with universal forces.  It is these universal forces that protect and provide for us, just as they provided me with the game-winning catch.  A little bit of 10-year old skill and willingness mixed with a whole lot of cosmic support prevailed that day.

When we are in a state of heightened consciousness, we radiate with the highest expression of our very being.  We always do our best.  We always bring the highest version of ourselves to every present moment.  This also helps us come from a place of empowerment.  When we work to raise our consciousness, we have fewer regrets.  We live our lives with intention, and we serve the greater good in doing so.  We’re also much, much more content — at the core of our being.     Aimee Hughes

Given that peak spiritual experiences are available to everyone, how do we make them a regular part of our own life?  The simple answer is we raise our vibrational frequency from that of shame, blame and anger (20-150Hz) into peace, love and joy (500-600Hz).  The more complex and truely great reward for doing so is that we elevate the vibration of everyone with whom we come into contact.  Just as my mother elevated my vibration and consciousness, our mere heightened vibrational presence elevates that of humanity.

At least that’s the theory, so I am delving into the second week of my latest science experiment — testing my direct experience of specific vibrational frequency musical tones.  Last week, during my daily meditation, I listened to the “love frequency” (528Hz).  This week, I am listening to the “FA or harmony” tone meant to strengthen relationship connections.  Click on the video below to try it out.

The FA vibrational tone is one of the six main Solfeggio frequencies listed below and used in over 150 Gregorian meditation chants.

396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear (UT)
417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change (RE)
528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles; Love; DNA Repair (MI)
639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships (FA)
741 Hz – Expression/Solutions (SOL)
852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order; Intuition (LA)

The Solfeggio frequencies penetrate both our conscious and subconscious mind enabling inner healing.  There is also the suggestion that “Solfeggio notes open up a channel of communication with the Divine.”

Our modern day musical scale [Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti] is out of sync when compared with the original Solfeggio scale [Ut-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La]. If we want to bring harmony in our lives, we need to replace the dissonant western scale with a web of subtle and clear intervallic relationships of the Solfeggio music. Let the music become once again a tool to raise human nature and a method to connect you with the Source.    Attuned Vibrations
