60 minute Zoom Call to Discover Your Home Note
In the world of vibrational therapy, or "Sound Healing" your home note is the note where you can find the most rest, relaxation, peace, groundedness, and centeredness. It is a sonic environment where you can effortlessly drop in, relax your nervous system, and improve the effects of brainwave entrainment and sound healing.
Knowing your "Home Note" is sort of like knowing your "sonic blood type", or like knowing which kinds of foods make you feel good or bad. Once you know, you can greatly benefit from this knowledge.
-Once you know your note, you can find binaural beats tuned to your home note, which means it's tuned to you!
-Access specific desired brainwave states simply by listening to binaural beats. Put yourself to sleep with Delta waves or find inspiration with Theta waves.
-Calm your nervous system by singing or listening to your home note. Getting the nervous system to relax is the name of the game.
-Play an instrument in the key of your home note, sing along, explore the space, and get to know yourself through sound on a whole different level.
Work with a Certified Sound Healing Professional
Hi, I'm Nicholas and I received my Sound Healing Certification from the Globe Institute of Sound Healing in San Fransisco! I have been trained in many different skills related to vibrational therapy, and of all of them, working with the home note has been one of the most rewarding and beneficial practices for myself and others. I am eager to guide you through the process of discovering your home note, as well as give you some tips on how to work with it from a sound healing perspective.
Fortunately, my background in music production enables me the ability to not just find your home note, but also to design custom binaural beats to put you in that "happy place". Check out the 1:11 youtube channel for access to the binaural beats I've created for clients thus far.
p.s. - Think you can guess what your home note would be? Odds are it's not what you might imagine. My home note and my partners home note are both Bb :).
What is the Process?
I like to compare the home note discovery process to a wine tasting, but relaxing in a different way. We use special designed binaural diagnostic tones created by David Gibson, one of my teachers and a leading medical sound healing researcher, pioneer, and founder of the Globe Sound Healing Institute.
Essentially, in the process we go through all 12 of notes that make up the musical scale, and by process of elimination figuring out which one is your home note.
We will be on a zoom call and you will need headphones and a quiet place where you can focus. You would sit with your eyes closed, and as we play through the different tones, take notice of how the different tones effect you. There will be certain tones that make you feel extremely relaxed, others might feel more blissful, and others might be annoying. It's different for each person, but what we are trying to do is find the place of deepest relaxation and groundedness, not bliss. Bliss is good, but slightly different.
One of the fascinating things about home note sessions is that when I pay 100% attention to you as your listening to the tones, and I can actually tell when you're really resonating with a note because your breathing will change, your body will shift into a more relaxed state, your eyes will move differently under the lids, and most of all, I can feel whether or not you are in tune with the note and it feels the same as when I'm tuning a guitar and the strings our out of tune or in tune. Fascinating stuff!
Brainwave States and Brainwave Entrainment
It's well studied and documented that rhythms can and DO entrain the brain to different brainwave states. It's the consistency and speed of the rhythm that entrains the brain. Essentially, it's a tempo, and our brains have different tempos for different functions and different times of day. We have a prime brainwave state for sleeping, just like we do for learning, accessing creativity, problem solving, etc. Many physical, mental, and emotional problems can be alleviated simply through brainwave entrainment. The problem for modern humans is that our minds are literally "scattered" and this "lack of brain coherence" overtime can create much disharmony within the body, mind, and energy field of an individual.
Want to tune your life into a sweeter melody? Try tuning your mind to a more cohesive harmonious state and see what happens.
Put It To Use with Custom Binaural Beats
Gamma - 20 hz - 100 hz (not available as binaural beats, try meditation!)
When you go to gamma you see everything in slow motion because your brain is working so much faster, so the world becomes very still. A professional drummer's brain is around 70-80 cycles per second and they see everything in slow motion.
Beta - 13 hz - 20 hz - Thinking and processing + overcoming ADHD. In ADHD the brain isn’t going fast enough so they give it "speed". Beta waves are a great solution for ADHD.
Alpha - 7 - 13 hz - Learning, Sports, Creative Problem Solving, Relaxed Attention, Awareness, Alertness, Relaxed Presence
Theta - 3.5 - 7 hz - Dream States, Creative Downloads, "In the Zone", Oneness & Unity
Delta - 0.5 - 3.5 hz - Deep Sleep, Deep Meditation, Regeneration. Used for Insomnia.
