The Power of the Hebrew Alphabet in Sound Healing Therapy
by Tammy Sorenson
I have been experimenting with sound waves and the impact of different music on plants, humans, etc. since junior high science experiment days. As a college music major, physics continued to be one of my favorite subjects. My master’s degree program coursework in Music Education, Music Therapy, and research paper, which focused on the gifted and talented and music, further compelled me to search out music’s impact on the human body and our environment. I have also intimately and deeply sought out Scriptures with regard to Creation: “God spoke, ‘Let there be…” I have prayed fervently for years that the frequencies of the atmosphere of Heaven, knowing they are all creative and all good, would be released and aligned on the Earth, especially through the arts and entertainment sectors of every nation/culture. In 2008, I wrote an article entitled, A Journey of Frequencies (see Appendix below). This initiated an intentional search for the science and mathematical evidence/information available to support what I have known in my spirit and found to be true over many years of working with children in an educational atmosphere, with regard to music, sound, and every form of arts, media, and frequencies. My journey has most recently led me to the Sound and Consciousness Institute and to writing this paper.
The topic for my final paper resulted from researching the The Mozart Effect by Don Campbell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozart_effect, http://www.mozarteffect.com), initially part of my master’s research, and first applied with our three children during my pregnancies and their early formative years from 1989-1999. Today, at ages 23, 20, and 20 (twins), each is a professional musician with exceptional musical giftings, technical skills, and extraordinary sound/listening facility. My search in more recent years led to Sound of Heaven, Symphony on Earth by Ray Hughes (http://selahministries.com, http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Heaven-Symphony-Earth-Hughes/dp/1878327933); Quantum Healing by David van Koevering (http://davidvankoevering.com); God Vibrations by Dan McCollum (http://store.ibethel.org/p2642/god-vibrations – ‘Genesis 1:3 says, “The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the deep.” Those God vibrations were the beginning of all created things. This CD audio series presents a Christian perspective on the power of sound: Sound Foundations, Destructive Power, Creative Power, Sound’s Healing Influence’); Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Leonard Horowitz (http://www.tetrahedron.org/articles/healing_codes/Healing_Codes_Press_Release.html,http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Biological-Apocalypse-Leonard-Horowitz/dp/0923550399); cymatics (http://www.rexresearch.com/cymatics/cymatics.htm); The Hidden Messages in Water and Messages from Water and the Universe by Dr. Emoto (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masaru_Emoto, http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=dr.+emoto), and quantum physics (The Physics of Heaven: Exploring the Mysteries of God in Sound, Light, Energy Vibrations, and Quantum Physics by Judy Franklin and Ellen Davis (http://heavensphysics.com,http://heavensphysics.com/davidvankoevering/, http://heavensphysics.com/danmccollam/, http://heavensphysics.com/rayhughes/).(This brief listing only scratches the surface of the exhaustive resources available for further study.)
Continuing to resurface in my research, was the work of Hans Jenny, who untilized a tonoscope to discover that the vowels of the Hebrew alphabet impacted the sand in such a way that it took on the shape of the written symbols when spoken, whereas modern languages did not generate the same results (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Jenny_(cymatics), http://www.rexresearch.com/cymatics/cymatics.htm). My explorations then led me to Music from God and the main topic of this paper, all as contributing further to my knowledge of the Scriptures (I obtained a doctorate in Practical Theology in 2002), and to what I have known in my spirit about sound, music, frequencies, and healing. (Music From God, Hebrew Letters Translated to Notes Produce Heavely Music by Uri Harel, http://www.musicfromgod.com/project.html, Music Bible Writer, https://secure.contactdesigns.net/cgi-bin/musicfromgod.com/musicfromgod.cgi/00209.html?id=X2HnyeW6, Center For Biblical Hebrew, Music From God, PMT 542, 5555 North 7th Street, #134, Phoenix, Arizona 85014, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 602-48-BIBLE, FAX: 602-932-2831; Music From God YouTube Videos, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1NMkKnQMvg, Susan Grisanti Part 1 of 3,http://www.youtube.com/user/musicfromgod, Music from God ‘Isaiah’ Project, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mo-IXSpPbA, Psalms 23 3D – Music from God – Shirat Hayam ‘Song of Moses’).
As an integral piece of the vision for Music from God, Uri Harel and the Center for Biblical Hebrew developed a computer software program entitled, Music Bible Writer. Harel was given a revelation of mathematically converting the letters of the Hebrew alphabet from any Scripture passage to melodic notation, literally releasing the musical frequencies of the spoken Word into the atmosphere. Harel stated that his discovery provides a new vehicle with which to encode, release, and empower the many layers of hidden meaning found within the Hebrew alphabet and original Hebrew text. In accordance with Hebrew tradition and the Creation account beginning in Genesis 1, God spoke divine order into Creation via His divine language and its symbols, i.e. the Hebrew alphabet and the inherent power of the Hebrew alphabet previously referenced in the research of Hans Jenny. Rav Berg’s book, The Energy of Hebrew Letters: The Quantum Story of the Original Alphabet, presents both historical and spiritual revelation for each of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet: 1) as being amongst God’s first creations; 2) as containing the blueprint by which Creation manifested, and 3) as each transferring specific energies of the Light of God into the physical world (The Energy of Hebrew Letters: The Quantum Story of the Origin…by Rav Berg, Kabbalah Centre International, http://www.amazon.com/The-Energy-Hebrew-Letters-Original/dp/1571896406).
The possibilities on this topic for sound healing and consciousness are infinite. In my research, I located several Hebrew alphabet frequency charts associated with notes, frequencies, colors, and body parts to further reinforce the Music Bible Writer software intention (http://www.colorofsound.com/Hermetics/BodyColors/, http://www.colorofsound.com/Hermetics/), as well as one for the DNA/RNA frequencies of the menorrah (http://www.johnsaba.org/articles/dna-rna-frequencies-from-the-menorah/), and tuning forks that correspond to the Moses Code via the principle of Gematria (http://www.healingsounds.com/healing-sounds-online-store/the-moses-code-tuning-forks, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gematria – the principle of equating numerology to the Hebrew alphabet, utilizing numerical and sonic energy). Any of these techniques could be applied as additional sound healing tools to support both environment and intention in the use of the Hebrew alphabet for sound healing.
I have included a number of links and resources in the Bibliography below to further support the findings of the frequency power/energy contained in the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. I have read each of the referenced books, and therefore, can recommend them as valuable resources.
I personally participated in the Music From God project in 2010, with an original CD project utilizing Music Bible Writer entitled, The Journey: Hebrew Songs for Intercessory Piano. The melodies for all but two of the songs on this CD project, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and Arise, were derived from the Hebrew translation of each song title’s Scripture reference. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, I added harmonies, rhythms, timbre, and form to the original melodies of the converted Hebrew Scriptures, transforming the spoken Word into a musical Word. Song Titles Include: Fearfully & Wonderfully Made – Psalm 139:14a My Plans – Jeremiah 29:11 Love Me – Deuteronomy 6:5 Decree Who I Am – Isaiah 9:5-7/Luke 1:31-33 Turning Hearts – Malachi 4:5-6/Luke 1:17 I Will Return – Amos 9:11-12/Acts 15:16-18 House of Prayer – Isaiah 56:7/Matthew 21:13 & Psalm 8:2/Matthew 21:16 Arise & Shine – Isaiah 60:1 My Spirit Is Upon You – Isaiah 61:1-2/Luke 4:18-19 Singing Over You – Zephaniah 3:17 My Plans – Jeremiah 29:11 (reprise).
Listening samples are available on tammysorenson.com/music, on Apple iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, or wherever digital distribution is available, details on my websites at TheArtsExpressed.org and SoundExpressions.net under SHOP PRODUCTS.
For my next CD project, I plan to incorporate the Music Bible Writer software presented in this paper, through the leading and power of Holy Spirit, along with intention, timbres, a goal of one musical piece (adding harmony, rhythm, and form) for each of the Just Intonation tuning frequencies, and record a resource tool specifically for each of the Voice Bio frequencies (Voice Harmony Analysis). I have much excitement and expectation for how all of the coursework in my Sound Healing and Consciousness Certification Program will impact this upcoming project!

A Journey of Frequencies
by Tammy Sorenson, copyright 2008
‘Frequency’ in the context of this article can be defined as: ‘Physics – The rate at which a repeating event occurs, such as the full cycle of a wave. Frequencies are usually measured in hertz.’(10) Scripture tells us in Genesis, Chapters 1-2, that God spoke creation into existence. Human voices produce a specific range of frequencies.(11) Scripture also describes the Lord’s voice as being like the sound (roar) of rushing water (many) waters (Revelation 1:15, 14:2, Ezekiel 43:2), which would contain multiple frequencies. Science has recorded the Earth having its own frequency.(12) Science has also documented the molecular structure of water responding to frequencies, specifically, perfectly and uniquely beautiful in response to positive spoken words, and deformed in response to negative spoken words.(13) The studies have similar results with varying styles of music. Since the human body is comprised of 57-75% water, this research has powerful implications with regard to the words we speak to one another, as well as the music we listen to! We are created to generate, receive and respond to frequencies. One can Google scientific research pertaining to varying frequencies from love/miracles having the frequency of 528 hertz (14), to liberty/freedom as being 333 hertz. (15 and 16).
I believe we are just beginning to scratch the surface in discovering the very frequencies of Heaven being released to and aligned on the Earth. I believe that joy, peace, laughter, and an endless array of goodness like justice, mercy, and compassion, existing eternally in Heaven and in the very nature of God, all have frequencies: all possess a specific sound. However, because we live in a fallen world, hate also has a frequency, as does rejection, envy, anger, unforgiveness, and the entire gambit of sinfilled thoughts, words and emotions. Worldwide, we are currently experiencing the manifestation of the fruit of a vast array of negative frequencies, because the Earth is out of alignment with the goodness of God and the atmosphere of Heaven.
The Body of Christ needs to be intimately in pursuit of Jesus for aligning our frequencies with the sound of Heaven. Thankfulness has a frequency. Praise has a frequency. Worship in Spirit and Truth has a frequency. Worship is a lifestyle, and is neither a song style or a church service. Worship is who we are and it’s what we do with every thought, every word, and every action…24/7. When we release the frequencies of our Father’s nature in us, having been redeemed and transformed into the image of His Son, our mind, our will, and our emotions respond to the very frequencies of our worship. It’s impossible to worship in Spirit and in Truth and release frequencies contrary to the nature of Christ. In his book, Interpreting the TImes (17), Chuck Pierce wrote, ‘In the book of Revelation, we find the real issue is the relationship between the sounds of heaven and the demonstration of God on earth. Sound leads us forth. Be willing to allow the sounds of Heaven order your actions.’
With all that is changing and shaking around us, those who choose to stay in a place of seeking first the Kingdom of Heaven, loving the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and others with His love…those who choose an attitude of thankfulness and praise, will find their frequencies aligning in the place of peace that passes all understanding. Peace has a frequency. I humbly give thanks to the Lord for opening my ears and eyes to begin to understand His supernatural frequencies. I can’t wait to discover the various ways He desires to lead me on the path of releasing the frequencies He’s continuously seeking to release on the Earth. I have purposed to be His vessel in empowering others to discover the very frequencies of Heaven, and most especially, the frequencies of His nature. His goodness is looking for those whom He can resound through. “Lord, let it begin with me…”
For anyone suspect of New Age content in this revelation, remember Satan can only counterfeit what has already been created, as there is only one Creator God. If we are in Christ, don’t all things and all revelation belong to His Kingdom? Isn’t it time the Body of Christ becomes the very ones releasing cutting edge creativity straight from the true Source of the only One who has the power to create and release it through them?
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2).
“However, there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries…” (Daniel 2:28).
“He reveals mysteries from the darkness and brings the deep darkness into light” (Job 12:22).
“Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
I love this word Holy Spirit spoke through a 10-year old boy in December of 2007 in the children’s church I was leading. For specific details concerning this word please read my article at TheArtsExpressed.org or jaranministries.com entitled: A Season of Expectation. This promise is a frequency awaiting manifestation:
Word Received in Kingdom Kids – 12/16/07 – Danny (age 10, grade 4)
The 2008 Christmas Gift!
“I herd (heard) God say “I am giving you a gift to all that no one haves (has). It is so precious that the glory of it is shining briter (brighter) than the sun! It’s power is felt all over the earth!” I herd (heard) God say agian (again).”What I speack (speak) is important. It’s might is so far beyond yours.” He said agian (again), “This Christmas I am giving you a restorement (restoration?). My perpose (purpose) is berdond (burdened) on your harts (hearts) so now you know what to do! For now all will (be) and are healed. I am soon coming so rase (raise) up mighty warriors to win the battle that has allready bine (been) won by the blood of Christ. We won and now are going to flood your homes with the glory of me!!!!!”
His glory is a frequency! These revelations and the discoveries continuing to come forth regarding frequencies have astounding implications with regard to the various arts, which are comprised of/utilize the spectrum of visual and audible frequencies (as well as those yet unseen/unheard), and their restorative impact on both individuals and the culture for the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
