The Creative Dynamics of Light and Sound
A Carrier wave for Spirit
We are made of light and sound. Light is spirit and sound a carrier wave for its creative expression. In light are
the vibrational frequencies that determine the intricate designs made manifest in the natural world. In sound are
the energy pulses and waves upon which spirit is carried and by which molecules are moved to give form to
those intricate designs of spirit. Thus is the world created by light and sound.
In the story of Creation as recorded for us in the Book of Genesis, we have the spirit of the Creator moving out
upon the face of the waters of the deep void of space and speaking the word that carried the command: “Let
there be Light.” Out of light and sound is all else made, including our physical bodies, minds and hearts.
A tool to facilitate attunement
Sound, then, is a tool for creation. Not just any sound. Sound that carries a tone and a wave form that is
coherent and pure. We call that “music”— the “music of the spheres.” Such music arises out of silence and
Musical sound is being used extensively and increasingly in the healing arts. It may be used effectively with
attunement. Our use of sound in attunement is not so much to heal our physical ills as it is to generate the
rarified spiritual substance (pneumaplasm) that connects spirit and form, so that spirit has a means of entering
and managing the world of physical form. This is the medium for the propagation of the Tone through which love
comes forth out of heaven to touch the earth of our flesh — or, perhaps more accurately, how flesh rises to
touch heaven, spiritualized by the movement of the Spirit of Love through it. When flesh is touched by love, it is
made whole, transformed, and uplifted.
At a core level, we are already whole
and complete. The frequencies of the
Spirit of Love, as reflected in the rain-
bow of the light spectrum and in the
seven notes of the musical octave, are
already present and inherent in the
Tone that is sounding in all of creation,
including our flesh, maintaining its
existence and function. The physical
body will reflect that wholeness to the
extent there is attunement with spirit
at the core of one's Being. In Being
are all the qualities and characteristics
needed for life and healthy function
in our physical bodies. So, wholeness, health, already is . If there is a lack of the experience of health in the
physical body-mind and heart, it may well be due to a lack of attunement between the perfection of Being and the
The outer form knows health and wholeness when the qualities and characteristics of inner Being are actually
expressed in one’s living, and two of the chief qualities of Being are thankfulness and appreciation : "In all things
give thanks." It is music to the ear to hear someone expresses thankfulness. A chief characteristic of Being is
forgiveness — the instantaneous release of whatever would bind you to another person's hurtful expression and
behavior, or bind them to you. If something is upsetting you, give thanks and then let it go! Such expression
clears your substance of any and all distortion so that the unfettered expression of the perfection of spirit can
come on through. For that expression to be accurate, there needs to be plenty of this connecting
substance of pneumaplasm present between spirit and form. Musical sound, such as chanting and toning, is
very generative of this substance. With enough of this silvery substance in place, spirit has a means of healing
the body and thereby revealing the perfection of Being in and through the Human form, creating in the flow a
whole human being.
In summary, then, healing is not our first concern. That is the domain of spirit. Our first concern is the generation
of substance through which spirit may move, and even that is done by spirit. We may simply facilitate the
process. Music, sacred sound, is a tool to facilitate that movement of spirit, especially when the person receiving
the attunement is invited to participate.
It isn't, therefore, the sound that offers healing to the body, but the spirit moving upon the surface of the sound
waves. Spirit brings the information and instruction the cells need to carry out their various roles in the body.
That information is held sacred and intact in the ray of light emanating from the core of Being. Pneumaplasm is
the medium for the transference of those messages and instructions. A person who aspires to share attunement
with love is rightly concerned to live a life that manifests and reveals the light of spirit. Such a person may be
described as an emissary of light divine, bringing the beautiful and joyful Tone of love into one's world for all to
resonate with and attune to in their living.
"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands,” sings the psalmist. When the dynamics of light and sound are
allowed to work in harmony with one another, the “noise” they make is a joyful and uplifting one.
