There is a phenomenon occurring at the present moment. Schumann's resonance is a measurable frequency around mother earth. This frequency has for years been measured at 7.8 Hz. The state just before we fall asleep is considered alpha state, which is around 7 Hz. Recently Schumann's resonance has been measured at 14 Hz. The beta state is when our brain is awake. 14hz is beta. We are awakening. Just as the World Wide Web was created years ago on the Internet, there is a spiritual inner-net happening. The search is for that resonate frequency that our body knows as harmony. NASA recently recorded what the sound of the center of our Milky Way Galaxy is (Music of the Spheres). They determined it to be in the key of C (around 64 octaves below C) The Milky Way vibrates drum like: http://www.healingmusic.org/Library/Newsroom/MilkyWayVibratingLikeADrum.asp . Ancient yogis in India knew that this was OM. When our body is ill, stressed, full of anxiety, depression, or angry, we become off-centered. The body is searching for that missing note which is C-C# OHM. That is why we play music when we are not feeling well. We entrain. Increasing our frequency, becoming one with the music. We are going from a lower vibration of heaviness to a higher vibration of lightness. We feel better.
