Did you know that our planet actually hums? It’s called the Schumman resonance, and it is calculated to be 7.83 Hz. The ancient mystics and astronomers also called it the “music of the spheres” and the ancient Indian Rishis called it OM.

All living organisms interact and interconnect with electromagnetic waves. Since life began on Earth, each living being has been protected with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 Hz. This frequency is associated with high levels of meditation, increased cerebral blood flow, and an increased ability to be creative and learn. It is considered so powerful that when astronauts in the space shuttle are out of Earth’s gravitational pull, the spacecraft emits a simulated vibration designed to replicate this resonance in order to ensure the health and well-being of the crew.

Maybe it is no coincidence that dolphin and whale songs are also measured at 7.83 Hz. Did you ever notice that dolphins seem to be wearing a perpetual smile? Hmmmm….While it was once only possible to hear the songs of the great cetaceans by living near the ocean, it is now possible to bring the vibration of well-being into your own home via technology.


Today, try to find a CD or audio recording of the haunting, healing songs of whales or dolphins and spend some time with the “music of the spheres.” Relax to their sounds and see if you don’t come away with a smile on your face!
