As Acutonics practitioners, we use sound as a vehicle to create vibratory states that aid in healing and transformation. From Acutonics Level I, we work with intervals created through the combination of two tuning forks to create “spaces in between”. These spaces contain overtones that create portals into other realms of being and extra-dimensionality.
In Acutonics Level II, we access ancient wisdom traditions and introduce shamanic tools as a way to connect with frequencies of divine vibration. Tibetan bowls and bells, drums, didgeridoos and other healing instruments from a variety of cultures are explored. These sound tools are often used in daily shamanic practices as a method for shifting consciousness, and reaching higher level of resonance with the divine realms.
Fortunately, today we have growing awareness and vision within science that has moved beyond Newtonian principles to incorporate these ancient wisdom practices that were previously classified as religious, spiritual, or superstitious.
The Taoists refer to the Wu Qi, which is commonly translated as “the infinite”. It describes a ground state of undifferentiated oneness from which the duality of yin and yang emerge to separate further into “the myriad” or “the millions”, the material or shared reality that makes up our physical existence. We see this same concept defined as “zero point field” in quantum physics, or as the “field of infinite potential” or “the field of all possibilities” in more common usage.
This is the field that fills the “spaces in-between”. It is the place we can access through vibration, assisted by conscious intent to shift patterns of information that manifest both physically and non-physically. Accessing the field with frequencies of planetary tuning forks, Tibetan bowls, drums, rattles and other instruments opens portals to possibilities of transformation and well being beyond what we, or our clients can imagine.
Sometimes clients reach a sort of “plateau” while working with an imbalance. They may have experienced consistent shifts and then things seem not to change much. We have found that if we deliberately direct our attention to working in their subtle fields, we can access information that revives and expands change. For example, sometimes after treatment for physical trauma, like an auto accident or a fall there is remaining discomfort that doesn’t seem to resolve. Disruption of the subtle energy fields often accompanies physical trauma, so working to repair the fields will release patterns that interfere with full recovery.
The field also contains old thought forms and beliefs that can create emotional, spiritual and physical manifestations. When people are working on expanding consciousness and creating transformation, we can use our planetary frequencies and vibrational tools to help break up old patterns and facilitate expansion and smooth flow of energy. We can illuminate new pathways and activate access to new grids and templates.
It’s been said that everything is light and information. We often use the high frequency Mercury and Sun2 to connect these essential elements. Additionally, high frequency intervals to use include: Ohm/Uranus 5th to break up old patterns, Ohm/Neptune 5th to allow easy flow into new ways of becoming, Sun/Jupiter 5th to help access the expansive fields of our hearts (especially if done over the heart chakra) and the Ohm/Sedna microtone to access connection between the liquid crystal matrix, our body’s connective tissue system, and the matrix of the field of all possibility. The high frequency New Moon 5th opens portals of possibility and expands the capacity to allow for or invite shifts. These are just a few examples of how we use these high frequency planetary intervals to work with the etheric field.
The forks can be directed over specific points or chakras. The Huato Jiaji points integrate new frequencies and, so, are often useful. We often work in areas of the field that draw our attention energetically. Sometimes we connect an area directly over a point on the body with a point a distance off the body where the vibrations of the forks seem to have a special resonance with each other. Paying attention to the feeling of the energy guides us to the proper locations.
While the high frequency forks are especially suited to the frequencies of the subtle fields, middle frequencies also have an effect. Remember to pay attention to grounding the client’s energy in their body and working with the middle and low frequency forks on the body as well.
Helping to create energy communication and integration with the field of all possibilities creates potential for expanded physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
"When I went to get my facial I was feeling a little achy and tired, wondering how I would get through the rest of my workday . . . After my treatment I taught some (yoga) classes, went shopping and cleaned the kitchen! My face definitely feels more lifted after just three appointments . . . and the treatments leave me feeling energetic, happy, and younger! "
