The rishis or spiritual master of India believed that the musical tone sadja or sa, which means the father of all others, to be the musical sound which resonates with the never-ending primordial vibration om. The rishis arrived at sa through deep meditation. To this day, Indian musicians approach tuning their instruments as a meditation to set the Spiritual tone for a whole concert. The effect of India’s meditative music is based on a musician’s ability to tune to sa.
The Swiss scientist Hans Cousto, the author of the Cosmic Octave, discovered how to convert planetary cycles into musical pitches. Using his system the sa corresponds to the sound of one Earth year of the time it takes the earth to circle the Sun. To arrive at the frequency of 136.1 Hz, an earth year is reduced to a second (frequencies are measured in cycles per second). An earth year is 365.242 days and an earth day is 86,400 seconds. When the days are multiplies by seconds the answer will be 315,567,925.9747 seconds equals one earth year. To arrive at an audible sound, 315,567,925.9747 seconds are divided into one (year) and then raised 32 octaves. The result will be the audible tone of answer 32 times the result will be 136.1 Hz. The cosmic note OM.
Hold your Om tuning fork by the stem between your thumb and first finger. Do not apply a lot of pressure. Gently tap the weights on your knees, tapping pad, or the palm of your hands. This will set the weights in motion and create a clear, deep and sustained tone. Bring the double-pronged side of the OM fork about an inch from your ear(s) and adjust the distance for volume.
You can use your Om fork directly on the body and acupressure points by tapping your fork in the same way. With the finger or thumb of your free hand, locate the spot on the body where you want to place the tuning fork, then tap your fork and press the single end of the fork’s stem onto the spot. Make a firm contact and hold the tuning fork until you feel the vibrations stop. The Om fork is especially effective when placed on the rib heads, thoracic vertebra, sternum, sacrum, and illiums. For example, tap the Om fork and press it to your sternum. Close your eyes and feel the vibration. After a while hum “Om” in resonance with the vibration. Another way to use your Om fork during bodywork sessions is to apply it to the spinal processes of the back and/or directly onto the sacrum (or any bone in the body you wish to bring the harmonic resonance of the Om vibration.)
