Bengaluru, November 8, 2016

Konkani Samudai, Jayanagar, here held ‘Vocal Touch’, a one day voice workshop at Catholic Club on November 6. The workshop was enthusiastically attended by 52 participants of various age groups from all over the city. Conducted ably by the specialist vocal coach of Melodia Voice Studio, Dubai, Jossie Moras, who flew in solely for this purpose along with Dr. Evelet Sequeira* a sound therapist.

The aim of the workshop was to train budding singers through practical exercises.

It began with a prayer. President of Konkani Samudai, Anitha Gomes, welcomed the gathering.
During the workshop, Jossie Moras taught children the correct posture and breathing technique required for singing. He also taught them different exercises to improve their tone and diction, together with warm-up exercises for the vocal chords and mouth muscles. Participants enjoyed the programme and wanted to spend more time learning from the master.
Dr. Evelet Sequeira in her 45 minutes session explained the beauty of the human voice in healing in the following equation: Frequency Intention = Healing. Sound waves come in different frequencies and each frequency corresponds to a particular emotion or organ. When the frequency coupled with intention is used for transformation, then Healing takes place.
Certificates were distributed to all the participants.

The workshop ended with a vote of thanks from Noel Fernandes, the secretary of Konkani Samaudai.

*Goa-Mumbai based (in Mumbai she operates out of Malad [W]) Dr. Evelet Sequeira M.D. is a purveyor of New Age wellness therapies, mindfulness meditation techniques, affirmations, visualizations and much more.

Her activities and organizations came to our attention when a Bangalore Catholic family realized their mistake after attending an apparently innocuous “Vocal Touch” programme featuring her at the Catholic Club and discovered that it was New Age. See

Do not let the “Vocal Coach and Choral Director” fool you. Moras is a Mangalorean-Mumbai Catholic expert in vocal training who uses a plethora of New Age devices in his coaching classes. The unfortunate truth is that hundreds — if not thousands – of Mangalorean and Goan Catholics in Dubai and in India have already passed through the portals of his studio.

He works with Evelet Sequeira (page 1 and below) and with Jonathan Goldman (further below). Goldman, founder of the Sound Healers Association (SHA) [formerly NESH -New England Sound Healers], is New Age.

The Temple of Sacred Sound is the world’s first interactive sacred sound temple in cyberspace where people throughout the world can gather and tone for Global Harmonization—the act of creating peace and balance on this planet through intentionalized sound. There are currently 3 separate Toning Chambers where different seed sounds (“Om”, “Ah” and “Hu”) are sounded 24/7. Temple of Sacred Sound requires no admission—not even your email address! Just go there and create intentionalized sound. It is simply designed to assist raising the vibratory level of all beings on this planet in order to enable a quantum leap in our evolution.

You can go into any one of these chambers and project intentionalized sound for planetary peace while being able to hear yourself and others throughout the world. Through the magic of the Internet, we are be able to resonate together in a manner unlike any other that’s ever before been available. In addition, each Toning Chamber is accompanied with extraordinary geometric visuals designed to enhance the sonic experience of projecting sacred sound on a global level.

There are physical plane temples of this planet, where certain chants have continued uninterrupted for millennia. Such is the case, for example, with some Tibetan temples where the same chant for the compassionate enlightenment of all sentient beings has been continued without interruption for many hundreds of years. Now, those of us with computers and access to cyberspace have a similar capability to use sound as a coherent waveform to enhance consciousness via the Temple of Sacred Sound.

To visit the Temple of Sacred Sound, please go to this link: www.templeofsacredsound.org and have the amazing experience of sounding with others throughout the planet for Global Harmonization.

Established several years ago, Temple of Sacred Sound has been utilized for many different planetary healings, including World Sound Healing Day. Please feel free to utilize it whenever it feels appropriate, including organizing your own events to assist creating balance, harmony and healing on the Earth. For additional information on Temple of Sacred Sound, as well as information on using planetary healing sounds and the results of past World Sound Healing Day events from the Global Consciousness Project, we invite you to visit: http://www.healingsounds.com/world-sound-healing-day-2

And once again, please remember to return to the Sound Healers Association website when you are complete.

What is “Solfeggio”?

 

Can specific music tones heal your DNA?

http://womenofgrace.com/newage/?p=867#more-867

By Susan Brinkmann, April 18, 2011

 

TN asks: “Is it alright to use solfeggio tones to relax and for healing, if not, why not?”

 

For those of you who never heard of solfeggio tones, these are believed by New Agers to have been the original sound frequencies used in ancient Gregorian chants that were either lost or suppressed by the Church. These chants, with their special tones, were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during the Mass.

According to the history http://www.soundsofwonder.com/pdffiles/grandsolfeggio.pdf, King David supposedly “received” six Solfeggio tones which he then created with strings on his lyre. These tones were used with the psalms. “The mathematics of the tones matches the mathematics of the psalms (gematria),” this author states. Solomon then used the tones and the gematria in the creation of the Song of Songs, but eventually lost the tones.

They were supposedly found again during the creation of the Gregorian chants. These tones were allegedly based on the discoveries of Pythagoras and his “harmony of the spheres” (whatever that means). But these were also later lost.

Now we come to the 1990′s when Dr. Joey Puleo was given the secret of the gematria in a vision along with the actual frequencies. In the vision, Jeshua appeared along with an angel that Dr. Puleo doesn’t name. Not long after this, a man named Joseph Crane was told in an appearance of the Archangel Michael that two solfeggio scales existed – one sacred and one profane. Crane claims to have discovered six of the frequencies of the sacred solfeggio, now known as the “secret solfeggio”, and added a seventh – all of which were to be used in healing. Crane claims that the Archangels Michael and Gabriel both verified the existence of the tones, and revealed other tones such as the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine frequencies.

In his book, Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, Dr. Leonard Horowitz documents Dr. Puleo’s rediscovery of the tones. 

The six solfeggio frequencies are:

UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

 


MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

As one author so fancifully detailed, “The third note, 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 exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based!” (http://www.redicecreations.com/specialreports/2006/01jan/solfeggio.htm)

Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as repairing DNA with sound frequencies and (of course) the website offers no references to support this statement other than that of Dr. Horowitz, who is associated with all kinds of New Age alternative healing methods.

On his website, Horowitz describes himself as “a Harvard University trained expert in health education and media persuasion.” He also claims to have expertise in genetics and electrogenetics, virology, and vaccine research and development.  Horowitz is apparently a busy man – he’s a sought after speaker, has written 16 books and launched the Healthy World Organization in 2009 which has its own supplement line. He hawks his Holy Harmony CD and books such as “The Love Frequency 528 For World Health, Peace and Freedom.”

“You are a digital bioholographic precipitation, crystallization, miraculous manifestation, of Divine frequency vibrations, coming out of Water,” he writes on his website. “Get it? You are the music, echoing universally and eternally hydrosonically!”

I could go on and on, but I think you get the general idea of where the Solfeggio frequencies are coming from.

Listening to musical tones is certainly harmless, but why keep charlatans like this in business?

Beware of Shekina Rose and her language of light

http://www.womenofgrace.com/blog/?p=15780#more-15780

By Susan Brinkmann, August 13, 2012

 

I recently received an email from a reader who was concerned about the ill-effects suffered by a follower of Shekina Rose, a so-called “Priestess of Light, Divine Messenger and Harmonic Vocalist” who claims to be able to produce a musical tone that can do everything from heal cancer to transform DNA.

According to her website, Ms. Rose lists herself as an intuitive, empath, clairaudient, claircognizant, clairsentient, and clairvoyant (these are all forms of psychic mediumship).

She also refers to herself as a “Blue Ray”, one of an “ultra-sensitive empathic soul group like the Indigos that came from many different ascended planets and light realms to enlighten the genetic code of humanity and raise the God consciousness on Gaia [Earth Goddess]. They are the lost ray of the Light Worker [whatever that means].”

Here is how she describes receiving the transmission of these special healing tones:  “As I am in sort of a trance, when I channel and I could barely keep up with all the activation of number sequences being downloaded and there were many sacred high councils, beings of light, the archangels Michael, Rachel, Gabriel. Metatron, Shekinah, Gaia {many of their personal codes are in this transmission} the heavenly hierarchy were all present for this channel to be created here on earth. The light codes of the Archangels in this transmission are actually protecting and empowering this knowledge so all the light bearers where ever they are in the world will receive and be awakened by it.”

If you’re wondering what the heck she’s talking about, it’s all about the Solfeggio Tones.  These are special tones of sound that New Agers believe King David received with which he tuned the strings of his lyre. He used the tones when singing his psalms. But these tones were lost and not found until the 1990′s when a man named Joseph Crane was given the tones during an apparition of who he believed to be the Archangel Michael. Michael supposedly told him there were two solfeggio tones – one sacred and one profane. Crane claims he received six of the frequencies of the sacred solfeggio – all of which New Agers claim can be used to heal.

To follow are the six solfeggio frequencies and the healing associated with each:

UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change

MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships

 


SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

Ms. Rose claims to have received the third frequency – the “Blue Ray” – the one which enables transformation, miracles, and even DNA repair. Her bio claims that these frequencies are “of the Grid of God” and that this level of sound “can heal cancer, raise Chi or Om Energy beyond comparison and awaken the soul to its highest potential.”

Of course, there is absolutely no scientific evidence to support any of this nonsense; however, you can readily see how this much dabbling in the occult can wreak havoc on a soul who might be searching for healing or just answers to the meaning of life. She talks about all kinds of encounters with her “star family” and other beings that supposedly gave her information and “opened her up” to what she believed were “higher realms.”

She also claims to be “a direct voice channel for Mother Goddess Shekinah in the Language of Light, and is supported by the Angelic Star Tribes with a vibrational choir of healing frequencies.” In her performances, she claims to be able to “activate within the individual his or her Divine Original Blue Print or God DNA.”

She reports that many participants in her “performances” report having instant healings and “awakenings” and that they are able to feel the blessing of Divine Mother Goddess Shekinah and the Angelic Realms.

Although it might all sound like harmless gibberish, this woman (who may sincerely believe that she’s contacting good spirits) is certainly consorting with evil. We know from Scripture (see Deuteronomy 18) and the Catechism (Nos. 2116-2117) that God condemns all such forms of sorcery. He will not contradict himself by participating in it, nor will He allow His angels to do so. Because disembodied human souls are not capable of this kind of contact with the material world without God’s help, they obviously won’t be participating in it either. That leaves only one other known spiritual being to be behind the visions Ms. Rose claims to be getting – Satan. She can give them all the fancy names she wants – but her “star family” and “sacred high councils” are nothing more than demons who are using her to lure souls away from God and into Ms. Rose’s so-called “higher realms.”

This woman should be off-limits to all Christians.

 

Shekina Rose is a leading individual in this New Age farce:
