Sacred Frequencies

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

There are many schools of thought when it comes to sacred frequencies and the way they are utilized.  At Listening to Smile, we feel that sound healing is a very personal journey and most effective when used consistently.  Our vibration changes daily, utillizing these different frequencies may help to restore peace, balance, and a fuller life.  Most all of the frequencies represented here have been featured in our music.  We invite you to explore the information below as well as our Sonic Meditation albums which we create monthly. 

Solfeggio Scale

The Solfeggio tones or frequencies have a history that dates back to centuries ago. They were thought to be created by a Beneditctine Monk named Guido d’Arezzo(c. 991 AD – c. 1050 AD). A familiar example of the use of these tones and frequencies is the familiar Gregorian Chants that Gregorian monks would chant during meditation. They utilized these chants for meditation because it was believed to bring about spiritual awakening when the frequencies were sung in harmony.
The Solfeggio frequencies are sacred and make up an ancient 6-tone scale. Each frequency of the 6-tone scale is believed to balance the whole body, the physical, spiritual, and emotional. 

These are the original Solfeggio Frequencies:

  • 396 Hz
  • 417 Hz
  • 528 Hz 
  • 639 Hz 
  • 741 Hz
  • 852 Hz 

174 hz, 285 hz, 925 hz, which when added in with the six original Solfeggio frequencies, create three perfect triads of notes: 3 x 3 = 9. 

9 being the sacred number of completion. 

Thanks to the work of Dr. Leonard Horowitz and Dr. Joseph Puleo, these ancient tones are back.

The following descriptions of the Solfeggio frequencies are based on both ancient wisdom, Ian’s personal experience and Listening to Smile’s client feedback and testimonials. 


The lowest frequency on the Solfeggio scale, 174 Hz acts like an energetic anesthesia. It is great for reducing pain in your physical body, as well as mending the energetic kinks that cause your pain. This frequency helps one feel secure, and has a slow, soothing quality to it.

432 Hz - The Schumann Resonances

The tuning of A = 432 Hz, which has been used throughout music history, is making waves especially in the field of sound healing and meditation. Musicians are leading a growing movement to prove this tuning is best for therapeutic sound work. 432 is also significant number and its harmonics are found all over spiritual texts and ancient sites. The sun is roughly 864,000 miles in diameter (432 X 2=864) and the diameter of the moon is 2160 miles (432 / 2). This goes on and on. 

Water memory and structured water with 432Hz:

728 Hertz the Universal Life Frequency was originally identified by Dr. Georges Lakhovsky. It was thereafter also identified by the equally inventive genius, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, as being one of the most beneficial and healing of all of the many other frequencies that he studied. An interesting point is that the 728 Hertz frequency is a natural harmonic of the 432 Hertz frequency. So by using only the 432 Hertz frequency you are also automatically receiving the full benefit of the 728 Hertz frequency as well.

Chakra Frequencies

The seven chakras in the body consist of energy centers that can be balanced through sound healing. Any healing that is needed in the body, is known to occur quicker when the energy centers or chakras are balanced and aligned. Once balanced, the body will be better able to stay healthy in both the physical and mental. Utilizing specific frequencies, we are able to create balance and harmony within the chakras and then within the entire body. Listed below are the frequencies associated with each chakra.
