Among their vast panoply of healing techniques the Taoist sages of the ancient orient laid great store in the six healing sounds which they suggested if practiced daily without fail will add a new layer of efficiency, strength, pep and resilience to your vital organs, which between them command every function of body and mind and even determine the development of external factors, finances, social life, personal life and so on.
The rationale behind it is that the entire universe is predicated on a sound-wave operating at 50 octaves below human hearing, and that sound is the original form of energy or heat.
We call this sound wave the background radiation wave and consider it a result of the radiation of heat from the initial ‘big bang’, that’s still inflating the universe. And if you tap that sound and strike a resonance with it by daily vocal toning practice you benignly affect your own psycho-physical structure.
They suggested this sound wave is comprised of five distinct elements all encased and bound by a connective agent.
These elements were described poetically as water, denoting flow; wood, denoting growth (as in trees); fire, denoting excitation; earth, denoting organization and form; and metal, denoting the distinction between the cosmic individual levels of consciousness.
Each of the elements has a sound which combined comprise the background radiation wave.
Toning the sound directs the cosmic energy (sound is energy) to the organ.
In the body water corresponds with the kidneys, wood, with the liver, fire with the heart, earth with the spleen, and metal with the lungs.
That’s the premise, however, if only as a device for focusing your consciousness on each organ in turn each day, it’s a valid and efficacious practice just for that, because wherever you send your consciousness, chi follows it, and blood follows the chi.
