Ancient Wisdom, Ancient Practices in the NOW...

I am pleased to share this article. What is put forth is indeed in accord, and in resonance with the perspectives that have been integrated into the offerings of APOGEE Acu-Tone™.

Today, we understand that all things in the universe are forms of energy with their own frequency and vibration – including crystals. Nikola Tesla declared this concept as the key to understanding the universe and proved how certain forms of energy can alter the vibrational resonance of other forms of energy. This concept is why healing crystals and stones are still used today to align, heal and alter the vibration of bodily cells, chakras, and the subtle bodies by holistic healers.
The ancients didn’t have access to the enlightening scientific information that we have today concerning the power of healing crystals. However, people around the world seemed to instinctively be drawn to these lovely gems and have a deeper understanding of their value and meaning in the greater scheme of the universe.

Popular Uses for Healing Crystals in Early Civilizations

Minerals, gems, and crystals have been used for millennia to enhance emotional, physical and spiritual balance. How the ancients knew, we may never know for sure, but these cultures certainly considered stones a major aspect of their existence.
Roman Culture: Talismans and amulets of crystal were typical amongst Romans. Most often, they were considered useful in enhancing health, attracting desirable things, and for providing protection in battle.
Ancient Egyptians: One of the biggest historical proponents of healing crystals, the Egyptians buried their dead with quartz upon the forehead. This was believed to help guide the departed safely into the afterlife. Pharaohs toted cylinders filled with quartz to balance the Ba and Ka energies of the body. Strongly associated with the Sky Goddess Isis, crushed Lapis Lazuli stones were most notably worn by ladies of royalty – like Cleopatra – upon the eyes to promote enlightenment and awareness. Dancers donned rubies in their navels to foster their sex appeal. Many wore crystals over the heart to attract love, and placed crystal-laden crowns upon their head to stimulate enlightenment and awaken the Third Eye.
Chinese Culture: Chinese medicine commonly incorporates the use of healing crystals – including crystal-tipped needles used in acupuncture and Pranic healing sessions. These traditions hail from nearly 5000 years of practice.
Ancient Greeks: Crushed hematite was often rubbed upon soldier’s bodies prior to entering battle with the idea that it made them invincible. Interestingly, the word ‘crystal’ is thought to derive from the Greek word ‘krustullos,’ – meaning ‘ice’ – and until the 1500’s many ancients believed stones like clear quartz crystals were eternal ice sent from the Heavens. The mythological story of Amethyst plays a vital role in the story of the God Dionysus and Goddess Diana, and the word is said to be the Greek translation of ‘sober’ or ‘not drunken’ – something Dionysus could have spent more time being.
Traditions in India: Aryuvedic medicine in India considers crystals valuable for healing emotional and metaphysical imbalances. The use of various healing crystals is documented within the pages of the Hindu Vedas, which also references each stone’s specific healing abilities. Sapphires are thought to bring astuteness, clarity and mental balance, and jasper is thought to bring harmony, sexual vitality, and balance base chakras.
Ancient Japanese Beliefs: Scrying was a common practice in early Japanese culture, and it is very similar to looking into a crystal ball as we see some psychics do today. Crystal quartz spheres were considered representative of the heart of a dragon and signified their power and wisdom.

What We Know Now About Healing Crystals

Healing Crystals
Concepts of Electromagnetism
Concepts of electromagnetism as proven by James Clerk Maxwell and their interdependent nature along with the various breakthroughs in quantum theory have given us scientific evidence for what the ancients always knew. Because everything vibrates at certain frequencies, they have the ability shift and alter the frequencies of other objects or bodies when they occupy the same space.
Hence, a crystal – which vibrates at its own frequency oscillations – vibrates within our own energy field through the physical law of resonance and creates a larger vibrational field, affecting the nervous system and transmitting the information to the brain. In essence, these connecting vibrations can harmonize frequencies and stimulate biochemical shifts that affect physical health in a positive, healing way.

528Hz - DNA repair - art and science of restorative frequencies... The APOGEE Paradigm™.

528Hz - DNA repair - art and science of restorative frequencies.
"You are a digital bioholographic precipitation, crystallization, miraculous manifestation, of Divine frequency vibrations, coming out of Water. Get it? You are the music, echoing universally, eternally, hydrosonically, with your heart at 528Hz!" 
~Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

The healing power of the 528Hz frequency has been known since Ancient times, but it has only been researched and recorded as late as the 20th Century. 

Initiating a three minute exposure to a 528 Hz acoustic tuning, as part of the APOGEE Acu-Tone™ attunement session, has shown itself to be calming, centering, energizing and most welcomed. The sounding vibrations fill the room embracing all surrounding space. This is followed by listening to one's own heartbeat with a stethoscope, bringing one deep into one's own resonant sounding.

Based upon a preliminary APOGEE Acu-Tone™ assessment, vibrating calibrated tuning forks are applied onto acupuncture points, cranium points and reflexology points, with the frequency that each calls for to bring about balance, flow and circulation. 

The body is more than atoms, molecules, cells, organs, and organ systems. The physical body is also responsive to chemical impulses and electrical impulses that can be measured. 

Electroencephalography – EEG measures the electrical impulses of the brain and Electrocardiography – ECG measures the electrical activity of the heart. Electromagnetic fields in the body can be measured by Magnetic Resonance Imaging - MRI. These electromagnetic fields are impacted by a host of internal and external triggers, blockages and/or stressors. 

Through Quantum Physics it has become known that sub-atomic particles move in a wave which has a frequency, creating energy. Every human body cell has its own electromagnetic field. Every human cell has and is responsive to frequency and vibration. The healing frequency of 528 Hz has been researched and explored by genetic biochemists that are currently using it in their labs to repair DNA that has been damaged. 

"528 Hz repair DNA-it is part of the 6 tones of the ancient Solfeggio Scale." Dr. Robert Girard 

Frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." 

Stunningly, this is the frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA - the genetic blueprint upon which life is based.

"The Healing Codes" by Dr. Leonard Horwitz states that 528Hz is the Love Signal (Divine Love). It repairs the DNA. "Recently, there have been a number of scientists who have been taking genetics to new levels. As I was evolving in my own work, I found myself investigating DNA. My previous books Healing Codes For The Biological Apocalypse and Healing Celebrations looked at spiritual and healing miracles and how they relate to genetics. In Healing Codes For The Biological Apocalypse, we revealed that the specific trigger that influences genetics is the Creator's musical scale (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti) called the Solfeggio Scale. The specific note that caught my attention was "Mi" or Miragestorum in Latin. It has an electromagnetic frequency of 528.” 

“Based on the research I've done into Pythagorean mathematics, I was able to decipher a hidden code with this frequency. If you study Pythagorean mathematics (the ancient mystery school), all numbers and words are in code. With mathematics, a key to unraveling the code is to keep adding multiple numbers until you obtain a single digit integer. For example; with the number 528, which is the electromagnetic frequency of "Mi," it works like this: 5 + 2 + 8 = 15. Then you add the 1 plus 5 because you always reduce to the single digit integer and as a result you come up with 6. I've termed it "Miracle 6" because the note "Mi" is the repair frequency for DNA." Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Interview: Source: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral.html “ 

Dr Masaru Emoto is well-known for being able to photograph water molecules. Good, clean water that are imprinted with positive thoughts and memories transform to beautiful crystals, similar to snowflakes. When angry, sad or negative thoughts and memories are imprinted in water the water molecules get "spastic". 528Hz creates the beautiful crystal shaped water molecule as can be seen from the pictures taken of water molecules by Dr Emoto. 

Dr. Gariaev Ph.D, a Biophysicist and Molecular Biologist who is a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences in New York, found that the basic structure of DNA alkaline pairs is the same as that of human language. So it can be influenced and repro¬grammed solely through thoughts. 

Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized Cellular Biologist and a pioneer in a field of study called Epigenics. He coined the term, Spontaneous Evolution, having discovered that the cell's DNA scans our environment for frequencies that are relevant to our existence, according to cell memories, changes its structure, and then sends messages to reshape itself accordingly. This is an example of external triggers impacting positively on the DNA. The healing frequency is received by the cell's command and control center, the cell membrane, and it transforms the shape and integrity of the cell. The tone of Mi originates from MIra gestorum, meaning 'miracle'. This tone has a frequency of 528 Hz, which is used for 'transformation and miracles'.

Your Zodiac Sign... Your Restorative Frequencies...

 YES, there is a relationship between the Zodiac Sign of your birth, specific restorative frequencies, cranium points, meridian and breath pathways that bring renewal, relaxation and stress relief, with the engagement of the parasympathetic nervous system. This an integrative service offering of APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Vibrational/Sound Therapy.  

Restorative Binaural Frequencies  ~ In the moment Acoustic Deliverance...

Two acoustic frequencies are offered based upon one's Zodiac Sign. Via medical grade stainless steel bell quality tuning forks,  each frequency is offered to each ear in a specific order. Vibrating forks of the same frequency are placed at both the right and left ears for a given number of repetitions. This is repeated for each of the two matching frequencies.  Followed by placing one frequency at the left ear,  and the other frequency at the right ear,  for a specific number of receptions, reversing the order so that each ear receives each of the two different frequencies.  

In addition, acoustic in the moment restorative frequencies are offered to palms of hands, specific acupuncture points, meridian pathways and cranium points. 

The reported effects by those who have experienced APOGEE Acu-Tone™restorative binaural frequencies  include deep relaxation, tension relief, pain relief, a feeling of calmness, a sense of balance, clarity, an overall welcomed energized feeling of wellbeing.

Information, Complexity and Communication
A Unique Approach to Training the EEG
Results of Acu-Tone™ on the EEG

Neurofeedback has traditionally focused on increasing or decreasing amplitude in particular defined bands, e.g. delta 1-4hz, theta 4-8hz etc.  There have been a few training protocols that have attempted to focus less on predefined bands.  Wide band suppression or “squash” protocols are an example of that.  In these protocols the goal is to reduce amplitude across the whole range of frequencies.  These protocols have traditionally focused on training one or two sites at a time.  The underlying assumption in amplitude training is that increasing or decreasing the amplitude at certain sites will enable the brain to function more efficiently.

Recently there has been increased interest in connectivity, coherence, and synchrony training.  These approaches focus on the ability of the brain to communicate across the cortex.  This is a measure of co-activation, does one location on the cortex activate a particular frequency range in concert with another.  The underlying assumption in connectivity training that there is an ideal amount of connectivity and that either too much or too little connectivity interferes with the brains ability function effectively.

Despite the differences in focus of amplitude and connectivity training they do have one component in common in that both are focusing on particular frequency bands and encouraging change in the specific values in those band.

In recent years there have been multiple studies of the EEG that have begun to quantify the brains electrical activity in new and different ways.
Some of the initial work was done in the field of anesthesia research where there was a desire to better quantify depth of anesthesia and levels of consciousness.  The ability to accurately ascertain level of consciousness is vital in surgery.  The previous physical signs that were used were crude and sometimes unreliable, with patients being either under sedated and experiencing pain or having memories of the surgery or over sedated and experiencing serious medical problems up to and including death.  The Bispectral Index and various computations of Entropy values have been used in measuring depth of anesthesia.  The Bispectral Index (BSI) is a proprietary algorithm, while the various formulations of Entropy are more widely available.  Both have been shown to be accurate measures of level of consciousness.  Several other measures have been created in order to find a metric that is similar to Bispectral Index.  Two of these are the Beta Ratio and Power Fast/Slow. Beta Ratio measures the change in gamma amplitude relative to the beta bands and Power Fast/Slow measures the change in gamma amplitude in relation to the total spectrum.  During anesthesia induction both these measures show changes closely correlated to changes in entropy and BSI*.   In both anesthesia and consciousness research entropy is defined as a measure of available cortical microstates.

Cortical microstates are brief, 100-200 millisecond, epochs of semi stable electrical behavior. Each one reflects the activation of a different network of neurons, and each corresponds to different states, from visual imagery to abstract thought, emotional feelings and face perception.

Consciousness Research and Theory

Recent study of consciousness has brought together the concepts of microstates, complexity, differentiation, and synchronous behavior.


There has been a great deal of research on the Microstate theory of consciousness.

Dietrich Lehmann and his colleagues have researched the make up of cortical microstates.  In more than a dozen studies they have identified differences in microstates depending on the task at hand and have begun to develop a database of normative microstates.  They see the development and dissolution of these microstates as the “building blocks of consciousness”.  Conscious experience depends on the ability to “string together” multiple microstates.  They believe that what we experience as a continuous stream of consciousness actually consists of separate blocks, which follow each other rapidly, involve disparate regions of the cortex and implement different identifiable mental actions and functions.

Lehmann, Thomas Koenig, and E Roy John have published a paper that details normative microstates across developmental stages.

Alexander and Andrew Fingelkurts have accomplished similar research in which they describe “meta-stability” in the EEG.  They describe a process of neurons synchronizing into neural assemblies or pools.  These pools can further synchronize into meta-stable patterns that can then combine to create more complex patterns.  Meta-stability is the ability of autonomous areas of the brain to momentarily enter into coordinated activity.  They have been able to map these and categorize these meta-stable states.  These states are seen as occurring against a backdrop of “multivariabiltiy” or complexity.

EEG Complexity

Complexity in the EEG measures the degrees of freedom or the independence of the variables in a system.   While synchronous activity has long been known to be an essential part of the brains ability to process information, synchrony alone is not sufficient.  Seizure activity and anesthesia induced sleep show a great deal of synchronous behavior.  These states are clearly not ones in which information processing is maximized.   

Several researchers have claimed that complexity is another essential component of conscious processes.  Complexity can be seen in the time domain and spatial domains.   Timing based complexity involves the independence of oscillations of all frequencies in a specific data stream or from a specific location.  Spatial complexity refers to the independence of activity between different sites.  That is to say no one site’s activity is overly dependent on another site’s activity.

A temporally complex EEG signifies greater cortical freedom.   The ability of the cortex to rapidly form and dissolve microstates is maximized.

Spatial complexity is a measure of differentiation in the EGG.  No one site’s activity is overly reliant on another.  A spatially complex EEG allows for the rapid formation and dissolution of communication networks across the cortex.

Spectral entropy is one common measure of temporal complexity in the EEG and mutual information is a measure of spatial complexity (differentiation) across areas of the cortex.

Along with complexity and differentiation, communication between brain areas is also important to robust brain function.

Several recent studies have shown that the gamma activity at distant sites seen under cognitive task is linked to increases in synchronous activity in other bands.  In one such study electrodes were placed directly on the cortex of patients undergoing surgery to address intractable seizure activity.  Patients are awake during this type of surgery as they have to perform different tasks to ascertain if the surgeons are probing the proper areas.   EEG was measured from multiple surface electrodes during those tasks.  One finding of this study was that the activation of gamma waves at distant sites was accompanied by an increase in synchronous theta between those sites.  It was speculated that synchronous theta is the mechanism that supports the activation of gamma at distant sites.

It is the combination of temporal complexity, spatial complexity, and communication/co-activation across distant sites that is essential for a productively functioning brain.

Selected Indexes:  Average Correlation of amplitude (uV) & BSI
Correlation of Averages (total) @ 5 minute intervals in all bands Pre-values

In Statistics, the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (sometimes referred to as the PPMCC or PCC, or Pearson's r, and is typically denoted by r) is a measure of the Correlation (linear dependence) between two variables X and Y, giving a value between +1 and −1 inclusive. It is widely used in the sciences as a measure of the strength of linear dependence between two variables. It was developed by Karl Pearson from a similar but slightly different idea introduced by  Francis Galton in the 1880s.

                       -1= perfect negative correlation, 0 being no correlation and +1 being Perfect correlation

           There is there nothing apparent that stands out with the Correlation data so far. Prior to test there could have been many other ways to choose what to correlate. There was no apparent way to know beforehand which measures would be most relevant for this particular condition.  However we are now in a position to contextualize our results within a theoretical framework excerpted from this paper by Dr. George Martin. The information he has distilled from the top researchers representing the most advanced work on conscious states & EEG analysis. He provided this information freely to promote his EEG Entropy protocols for Neurofeedback training.  I have excerpted the relevant parts of this paper here for our analysis.

BSI was very significant in both hemispheres but significantly more so in the right hemisphere. Since Entropy correlates to BSI fairly well, it stands to reason that out of all the possible measures we might examine, the relevant ones for BSI are likely to be the same or similar as the graphed indexes above shown to be highly correlated to Entropy. This is based on the fact that BSI changed dramatically in our experiments and BSI is correlated to Entropy. Entropy is correlated to the other Indexes shown above in graphs: Amplitude, dominant frequency, variability. Our results have provided evidence to guide us in a specific direction narrowing down the choices of measures to these few. We may now proceed with more confidence these other variables may also be relevant to our goal.
