“Every cell in our body is a sound resonator. 

Every cell lives in a rhythmic pattern.

Each organ in our body has its own pulse.

Each and every system has a cycle, rhythm, pattern and pulse that exist in resonant harmony to the cycles of the Earth and heavens.

These bodily systems respond to sound vibration, as do our spiritual, mental, and emotional states of consciousness.”
