The Psychology of Sound and Energy

Updated: Nov 28, 2023

"Everything is energy, and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics"

~ Albert Einstein

We aren't typically taught to think about it in those terms, but all of us human sentient beings and all things in the universe, vibrate at a certain level or frequency. We do so on a daily basis. Sometimes you get frustrated or angry, and sometimes you feel depressed or bored. These vibratory rates are quite different from when you're ecstatic or joyful.

Ancient wisdom provided us with the insight that SOUND IS ENERGY which forms the building blocks of the entire Cosmos.

If we understand that our bodies are electrical systems, this means that our health encompasses much more than a static "thing" based upon inherited genetics. There is not an empty vacuum between us and the world around us ~ WE ARE an electromagnetic medium and atmosphere that conducts waves, and we have sensors for those waves.

There isn't one person on this planet that hasn't had the experience of getting a 'bad vibe' or 'good vibe' off of someone! We can literally sense these things.

Whether conscious of it or not, our words and thoughts are vibrational frequencies or sound currents, and their use is tied to our state of mind, personality, and power to project from our authentic self.

All of our mental formations, our thoughts, words, speech, and sounds; are all energy and/or vibration ~ all moving at different vibratory rates.

Vibration and/or energy affects our cells, organs, blood, bones, and everything in between, as well as the bio-magnetic field of our human body (also known as the 'aura') and the surrounding environment.

So, energy is vibration moving in waves, and everything in our body is in motion, and it propagates. Science has also shown that intense emotions move through our body and are released within 90 seconds. So when something happens to us that triggers us, the initial tumult of emotions is 'over and gone' within a minute or two.

But what happens to most of us, is that we hold on and relive these emotions of imbalance over and over. Perpetuating the intensity of it all is the story or meaning attributed to whatever happened ~ we call up our friends or parents and complain, we get upset because of something unrelated, then that sets us off again about something that happened a week, a year or a 'lifetime' ago. We get stuck in patterns of thought about something and then regenerate the negative associations with it.

All of this takes a great deal of our system's energy, and we can start to fall into disrepair and suffer emotionally, when there is not enough energy to keep everything running properly.

It is possible to change what's being held in a certain pattern within the body-mind and creates such turbulence in our hearts.

By expanding our awareness of our thoughts, words and (re)actions, and by shifting or managing our 'frequency', we can begin to realise we have a say in our own life, instead of expecting our own happiness to be fulfilled by others.

This in itself is a much more liberating frequency. We can also observe how things slowly start to shift in relation to it ~ our relationships, opportunities, conversations, possibilities, our lives as a whole.

This is why talk therapy and sound healing therapy can be so potent. We are literally aiming to facilitate greater harmony and 'coherence' within our bodies, brains, nervous system, cognition (thinking process), and emotion regulation.

At DIVE Healing we use sound healing therapy to not only send messages of safety and relaxation to our bodies, but to also guide us to expand awareness and understanding of the links between our 'symptoms' and our thoughts, emotions, and actions, as well as our responses to the surrounding environment.


As a Holistic Psychologist I (Arissa Brunelli) provide a safe space that allows clients the freedom to express what's been 'stuck' in their bodies, and together with the use of sound vibration and the client's awareness; identify and 'clear out' whatever is interfering with them living a rich, full and meaningful life.
