A Discussion about Wind Turbines and the Possible Vibrational/Sound Effects on People and the Environment

Over the last 10 years, I’ve noticed a variety of Wind Turbine Farms in various locations where I have traveled.  Flying into Amsterdam airport, I saw the beautiful Wind Turbine Farm in the ocean.  While driving through the desert near Palm Springs I could not help but be amazed at the landscape of what I will call windmills for miles around.  I have seen a few windmills dotting the mountainous landscape in the Appalachian Mountains in Pennsylvania. I think they look quite beautiful and invoke happy memories of playing with pinwheels as a child or hearing stories of the windmills in the Dutch countryside of Holland being an integral part of someone’s life.

 I’ve always thought of them as a thing of beauty.  Then about 3-4 years ago, a client of mine asked me to research the negative aspects of living near a wind turbine.  I did a cursory review of the literature and decided since I was working on other major projects that I would just provide my client with the references and contact information for people doing the research.

 So many research summaries come through my email daily that sometimes I pick and choose what to read or use.  While I didn’t read the articles about wind turbine farms, I began seeing more and more discussions about the topic so I thought it would be a good topic for my cbs radio show Sound Effects with Dorinne Davis (www.newskyradio.com).   While I typically talk about personal cell frequencies, an underlying topic is always how does any sound impact the body’s wellness.

 I searched out what is being said. Of course, as with any subject, there are people saying wind turbine noise is more or less harmless as well as people saying that the effect of the sound can have a major health impact.  The effects seem to affect limited numbers of people and happen closer to the wind turbine noise source.  Some researchers indicate that the effects can be mitigated by varying the type of expectation of the listener.  A few connect the health challenges directly associated with the lack of sleep which may come from the exposure to the infrasound noise heard continuously in their home environment.  I am sure that both sides have a level of validity to their responses.

 I would like to interject something into the discussion which I’m sure some will discard as non-scientific.  I will relate it to my overall comments about the body’s responsiveness to sound in daily life.  Each cell in our body resonates its own frequency and therefore our wellness depends on how these cells harmonize together.  Our body naturally wants to stay in this harmonious relationship but unfortunately, the frequencies of the energy around us can create an imbalance with the internal struggle of the cells to stay in harmony.  Call it the biophysics of the body.  Or call it bioacoustics, a term most often researched with mammals or birds. The term is also applied to humans, although still in the beginnings of accepted research.

 We need to look at the bioacoustics of the human cell frequencies and the impact of an invading sound, in this case either an audible sound from the wind turbine and typically under 84 Hz, or an infrasound, a sound so low in frequency that it is a sound not ‘heard’ by the ear. How does the infrasound response of the wind turbine impact our body’s cellular frequencies?  Does it alter the mathematical algorithm of our cell’s harmonic balance?  And if so, how does it change the body’s resonance?  Is it creating a disturbance in sleep, which is a major complaint from most people impacted from the wind turbines?  Does the rhythm of the turbine impact the body’s overall rhythms?  Our body rhythms are understood with our heart rate and breath stream to name two.  These  two body reactions are noted with the reported articles as having an impact on people’s health.  Another consideration is the exposure to the wind turbine sounds in areas where sound will bounce around walls creating an extra stimulation.  One report indicated that the sound heard in the person’s home appeared to have a greater impact on them.  These responses can lead to emotional and psychological fears or reactions which have also been reported in various articles.  Research must look at both sides and yet as the possibility for an increase in solar wind power evolves, we must look at how it impacts us in the moment and long term.

 So I introduce this discussion for consideration.  Since the ‘debate’ of whether wind turbine farms impact the environment and its inhabitants has been going on for over 30 years, I would expect this idea to not take hold immediately. I throw the idea out there for future research and debate.  Let’s take a look at the impact based upon each person’s cellular frequency reactions and then relate those responses to how it may impact their health and wellness.  Sound can be beneficial and sound can be harmful.  One person’s response may be different from another person’s response.  Sometimes the responses are immediate; and other responses take place over time—the body adapting to the new cellular frequencies and rhythms.  This may be harder to identify and test but hopefully over the next 10 years, this type of research will be easier.

Allopathic versus Energy Medicine for those on the Autism Spectrum: A Discussion

As far as I am concerned ‘typical’ versus ‘alternative’ therapies/treatments, or allopathic  versus energy medicine, should work together.  There should not be a debate of one over the other. So this is a discussion of how both can be viewed in a collaborative way.

I have had the privilege to meet and befriend Martha Herbert, MD, PhD, a HarvardMedicalSchool researcher.  Her book, The Autism Revolution: Whole Body Strategies For Making Life All It Can Be, is sharing an interesting and informative perspective on how autism is not a hardwired programming of one’s genes. She draws from new research, technology, and personal insights and guides her reader towards restoring health. Allopathic medicine has years of research to support it.

My books, Sound Bodies through Sound Therapy and more recently The Cycle of Sound: A Missing Energetic Link, discuss the foundation for how sound, vibration, and a subtle body energy system support change for each person, and in this case those on the autism spectrum, with learning, development and wellness challenges. The approach, known as The Davis Model of Sound Intervention®, uses specific sound-based therapies to restore overall wellness. Energy medicine, specifically with those approaches using sound, has not had the opportunity for years of data driven research yet as the measurement tools are either not created or within easy access.  Also funding for research in this field is not easy to obtain.

So this discussion will look at Dr. Herbert’s comments followed by a comment about sound and energy as I see it.  From a ‘sound’ perspective, it is important for the reader to understand that this discussion considers ‘sound energy’ not from a hearing or sensory perception perspective, but rather from a brain/body response at the cellular level.[1]

Dr. Herbert comments that “the health of the body can affect the function of the brain…(and) while autism certainly involves the brain, it is really a problem of the whole body, including the brain, from molecules to cells, from organs to metabolism, from immune to digestive systems.”[2]  She discusses how brain network problems may be weaker for those on the autism spectrum and as a result have network problems.  “Brain networks are built out of brain cells.  The brain cells are in the body and the whole body is having health problems….maybe the brain networks in autism are weaker because the cells are having a tough time….then improving the whole body’s health might trickle up to the brain and put more energy into the brain networks.  With more energetic networks, the brain should have more resources to coordinate…all the things that are challenged for people with autism.”[3]

With sound energy, there is a recently identified subtle energy system in our body called The Voice-Ear-Brain Connection. Einstein suggested that the entire world has complex fields of energy interacting with each other.  By manipulating the body’s energy fields, of which The Voice-Ear-Brain is one, the body’s cellular physiology is restored and balanced. Subtle energy systems in the body are composed of matter with different frequency characteristics than the physical body. Both the physical and energy systems can coexist in the body, so says the physics principle called The Principle of Nondestructive Coexistence.  Both systems work in tandem yet separately.  The subtle energy systems synergistically support the functioning of the physical body.  So with that understood, the brain as within The Voice-Ear-Brain Connection is the conductor for the body’s overall wellness energetically.  Each cell in the body has its own sound frequency which the brain understands.  The brain networks are interpreting these cellular sound responses and control the body’s wellness.[4]

Dr. Herbert reported that many researchers suggest the brain’s web is less networked for those on the autism spectrum.  She shares Dr. David Beversdorf;s findings that ‘The connectivity problems are not hardwired.  They can change, and fast…and the brain will…access its networks more fully.”[5]  While the research is not hard data, the response from clients using specific sound-based therapies as utilized within The Davis Model of Sound Intervention® show that change can also happen quickly—the brain appears to have ‘tuned up’ the cellular frequencies resonating between the voice, ear, and brain.  Change is typically noticed in learning and developmental issues initially. This change does not happen as quickly if the body’s wellness is not supporting the learning changes.  The voice demonstrates which cellular wellness issues are out of balance.  Once all three—voice, ear, and brain—are resonating in balance, change has been reported as happening more quickly.

Dr. Herbert talks about ‘A Web of Problems’. She says: “Our whole-body, whole-brain webs are constantly sending signals at every imaginable level—inside our cells, among our cells, using molecules and electricity…and in complicated waves and patterns.  When we’re healthy…these signals travel clearly and strongly from one part of the web to another…..Think of it like an orchestra.”[6]  So too with specific sound-based therapies as applied within The Davis Model of Sound Intervention®—the waves of sound patterns need to be orchestrated at the brain to balance the body.

Dr. Herbert discusses how many doctors believe that autism is a “way the brain and body behave when their cells are having a hard time.  Their treatment(s)….aim to get the cells to work better…to restore overall health.”[7]  So too with sound energy—the approach works to balance the cellular frequencies to restore overall wellness. 

“Autism may be more of a ‘state’ that can change than a ‘trait’ that is fixed and unchangeable”[8]—so says Dr. Herbert. She suggests that change occurs once the blockage is removed.  Specific sound-based therapies can unblock held negative energy body responses so that the person can either move forward with their development or respond better with their overall wellness.  Many of my clients have lost the ‘autism’ diagnosis after having this energy unblocked.  Sound therapy does not address the diagnosis, rather it addresses the energetic patterns in the body, yet the diagnosis has been changed for some, especially when combined with traditional types of medicine.  The time has come to use both body systems to enhance, support and change how those on the autism spectrum function. 

While many individual sound-based therapies have been utilized over the past 50-60 years with either minimal or great success, one must be cautioned that as with medication, one should not use sound therapy randomly.  So don’t just ‘try’ sound-based therapy; such as hoping an aspirin will take away a headache.  What is the reason for the headache?  After reading Dr. Herbert’s book, I feel that she is suggesting that each person on the autism spectrum needs to help their own body’s challenges as it relates to their own specific needs.  So too with sound therapy: The Davis Model of Sound Intervention® emphasizes the need to use the correct sound-based therapies identified with appropriate testing to determine if, when, how long and in what order the specific sound-based therapies should be used to make appropriate change for each person based on their specific needs.  Typical vs alternative, allopathic vs energy—both should be working in tandem and separately as the pioneers in energy medicine have suggested.

Synergy is not Happenstance

How often do you hear something like: I was just thinking the same thing.; We just clicked.; It was meant to happen;, It’s serendipitous.; It happened for a reason.; It seemed like fate.; or How ironic that you and I are here together?  All life is energy.  Everything resonates, which to me is sound vibration. The synergy of our lives resonates because of this energy.  Our personal world resonates our personal vibrations—both emission and reception of sound vibration.  Our frequencies transmit outwardly to reach others and/or are received inwardly from people, things, events and thoughts as the vibration occurs or as the vibrations need harmonizing. We function by searching for ways to balance our energetic vibrations.  This is done sometimes consciously and more often subconsciously.  Our sound cellular vibrations work to help us self-heal but also can transmit our thoughts and needs to be received by those who are open to receive them.  So when you hear, ‘It happened for a reason.’, yes, the energy of whatever happened has helped balance the energy of either the transmitter or receiver, or both.

 

So the synergistic events of any moment are supposed to happen because the energy of the moment needed to happen in order to harmonize the energy of the event, moment or person. Is it our ‘intuition’ when we know that something is going to happen? Or is it our body’s cellular vibrations saying something like “Open Up, In Coming Message’? The body’s ability to balance the vibrations of this message sets the foundation for what happens next.  Do we ‘tune into’ the message or reject it by its vibration?  Is our brain able to subconsciously accept the message for use?  If the Voice-Ear-Brain Connection, one of our body’s newly identified subtle energy systems, is in balance, we resonately pick up on these ‘intuitive’ moments more easily.

 

I’ll never forget when I learned that the acoustic reflex muscle in the middle ear begins to reflex before we actually use our facial muscles to speak.  I think the same thing must be happening subtly throughout our entire body in our response to vibrations.  We do this subconsciously, unconsciously and even consciously perhaps.  Our cellular energy knows before things happen that it will happen or at least be ready for it to happen. Are we open to accept new vibrations? 

 

Today’s world still thinks all things must work biologically or physically. My body and world vibrations encourage me to share that we must look beyond these two scientific bases and begin to look for ways that open us to new paradigms and experiences using our innate cellular energies that are searching for balance.  So understand that all synergistic happenstances were meant to happen and that you were open enough to accept them.  We are always open to sending them even if we are unaware that we are doing so. So live the moment more harmonically and enjoy the world’s synergistic connections.

If the Wright Brothers flew their first plane 100 years ago, imagine where sound-based therapy (as per The Davis Model of Sound Intervention℠) will be in 100 years.

I recognize that my work won’t be fully recognized until after my time on Earth has passed, but when I read the other day that the Wright brother’s first flight was in 1903 and see how far aviation advanced in 100 years, it really sunk in that my grandchildren, great grandchildren and even great great grandchildren will be the ones to benefit from my work.  It has taken me 21 years to develop the Davis Model of Sound Intervention℠ to its current level and I have plans to develop my ‘therapeutic’ approach into a more ‘generic’ approach for all people to receive benefit in the near future.  I feel compelled to make this happen in the early part of the 21st century so that by the time the end of the century is here, the research, benefits and applications of this approach are fully recognized and utilized by most people on the planet.

Imagine a world where people wake up each morning and plug into their ear a device that tells them what their body most needs at that moment to feel better for that day, and then listen to that sound throughout the day to motivate them, energize them, and overall enhance them throughout the day—all while their body is working to self-balance their body’s energy frequencies.  In the future, these frequencies or sounds will be used as a medical measurement tool and subsequently their own self-healing tool.

Telehealth has been introduced as a current concept for a ‘modern’ healthcare system.  While the generalized sound technique mentioned above won’t miraculously address specific illnesses or diseases (or who knows maybe it will in 100 years), the process will support the body on a self-healing pathway for better overall daily functioning. The process is called Ototoning, and is the culmination for body sound energy balancing as within the Davis Model of Sound Intervention℠, a model that balances a subtle energy system within our body called the Voice-Ear-Brain Connection℠.

When I see that concepts of human consciousness and subconscious interaction within our body are scoffed at in the literature today, I hope that someone in the beginning of the 22nd century will see this blog and recognize that my concept of using the subtle energy system existing between the voice, ear, and brain to self-heal was equally as momentous as the Wright brother’s first flight.  I hope I’m given to time to watch the transition to acceptance.


Entrepreneur wanted—–I want others to be able to access my work when I’m gone

Yesterday while receiving the benefits of acupuncture, I shared with my acupuncture practitioner my wish.  “I want others to be able to access my work when I’m gone.” He asked “So you really want a mentor?”, to which I responded, ‘yes, but no’.  While I want to train someone in a mentorship capacity, I really need someone who can understand the benefits of alternative approaches to learning and wellness but more importantly someone who can bring my Davis Model of Sound Intervention℠ to others through new product development, funding for the processes, realizing the potential for applications of my model and products, an ability to grow a new business model, organizing company growth, and finding ways to train people to use the approach.

 

I will be ‘retiring’ from the current way The Davis Center operates in a few years so I need to put my wish out there in order to find the person I want to share my work with when that time comes.  My whole model and process utilizes the importance of ‘your voice’, so my voice is saying “I want to find the right person to share my business concept and potential before I ‘retire’.”  They will not be investing in what has been but rather what is possible for the future.

 

I am not looking for a venture capitalist.  I am looking for a young entrepreneur with exciting new energy who understands that energy medicine, and in this case sound energy, is going to be the newer and more acceptable paradigm for both wellness and learning over the next 25+ years.  The right person must be willing to work long and hard to develop the model, be able to bounce back when knocked down, and yet have the integrity to work for each person’s individual right to function at their personal best. Yes, allopathic medicine and the current educational models will still be in place but the concept of repatterning your body’s energy to support self-healing will be growing as a complement to these two pathways. This entrepreneur must be able to help with the funding for this advancement of my model.  I am not searching for someone who wants a job.  I am searching for someone who wants to be infused with an exciting future, making a change for the world, and be able to support all people with feeling better, feeling more energized, feeling less stressed, being more cognitively aware, being better able to attend in all situations, and so much more. The entire concept supports self-healing from within at the person’s core cellular level.

 

Imagine a world where each day as you wake up, you can determine the sound patterns that will balance your functioning for that day!  That is possible and I want to share this potential with someone special so that together we can share it with the world!  My voice has spoken!  The Universe will bring me the best person!  Please share this with your networks!  As Edgar Cayce once said, “Sound is the medicine of the future”, but in the Davis Model of Sound Intervention℠’s case, sound affects all we do—as a subtle resonant energy system in your body.  My logo says “Sound Therapy, Changing Lives”.  Please help me find the best person interested in making a difference in the future with sound for themselves and others.  They can reach me at info@thedaviscenter.com.

Cycle of Life—Cycle of Sound

A small step forward, a small step backward creates a cycle of life; so too a cycle of sound. Life seems to be a series of cycles of positives and negatives, ups and downs, happiness versus sadness, remembering and forgetting, and/or health interrupted by illness.  It’s time to relate these cycles to our natural balance of energy–environmentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  All life is a cycle.  Life is movement at its smallest segment.  This movement is vibration striving for balance at its core frequency or resonance.

 As humans, our bodies are made from thousands of cells.  Each cell emits its own frequency or sound. Each frequency has its own cycle, indicating an up and down phase of that cycle. As with the cycle of life in general, so too is this cycle of frequency, a cycle of sound. Cell control between the body and the environment orchestrates the rhythm and pattern of our life’s cycle.  This movement between the external and internal vibrational world of our body is our essence of life, impacting us to our core DNA.

 Within our cycle of life, we experience happiness and sadness. Among many scientists it is believed that trauma can impact our lives at our core cellular level and alter our lives at that level from that point in time onward, unless actively moved to alter or rebalance that pattern.  One possible way to address the cellular change from trauma is by understanding the frequency changes that occur from that trauma, and then work to repattern or rebalance those altered frequencies. 

As a subtle energy system of the body, The Voice-Ear-Brain Connection℠ can help identify how the cellular imbalances impact each person in daily life–physically, emotionally, or spiritually.  The Davis Model of Sound Intervention® then uses specific sound-based therapies to repattern their personal cycle of sound.  By harmonically balancing our personal cycle of sound, we also balance our core cycle of life. Ototoning is a technique to support this process. While outside influences can still trigger imbalances, if we learn how to use our core frequency needs to support our overall wellness, our cycle of life seems more balanced overall.

Sound Processing is Not Sensory Responsiveness; It’s Mind/Body Responsiveness

When people hear the word ‘sound’, they assume that the ear is using the sense of hearing.  However, the brain is actually our sound conductor and works diligently to ensure that body’s response to sound is in balance, has the best rhythm, maintains the proper duration of sound, supports the best inflection, and keeps the entire body in tune.  The brain understands the cellular rhythmical patterns and knows when those patterns, or our body’s sound song patterns are in harmony with the body’s everyday functioning.  The brain and body work together to harmonize or balance how the body responds to what is taking place inside of it as well as to what is happening outside or around it.  The way we respond to sound works in a cycle of balancing the frequencies.

The brain turns the cellular frequency or vibrational codes that it processes into meaningful functional responses.  The input from the senses, whether they are hearing, sight, touch, smell, or taste, are only additional codes that the brain receives and processes.  All frequency codes should be considered as ‘sound’. These codes produce chords, overtones and/or harmonics of the sounds. The brain processes these sound frequency codes and their subsets in order to produce the body’s response.  The brain supports the body to maintain a level of body coherence or balance. So sound processing is more a mind/body response than a sensory response. Sound-based therapy supports balancing this responsiveness, especially as evidenced within the Voice-Ear-Brain Connection.
