tuning forks

Tuning Forks instaneously alter your body’s biochemistry and bring your nervous system, muscle tone, and organs into harmonic balance.
Sound alters our biochemistry and enhances all energy therapy practices. Individuals use Tuning Forks to relieve everyday stress, as an aid to mental clarity, to enhance yoga and meditation, and as a pain management tool. Doctors, psychotherapists, massage therapists and energy practitioners use Tuning Forks to generally enhance all phases of their work.

There are two ways to sound your tuning forks. The first way is to gently hold them by the stems and firmly tap the end of the tuning fork on your knees. This will create a pure tone and is excellent for deep listening. Bring the two-prong part of the forks about an inch away from each ear and listen to the quality of tone. Remember that your tuning forks are musical instruments.
The second way is to hold the tuning forks by the stems and tap them together two times to create an audible sound with overtones. This sound is good for moving around the body in the energy field. You can adjust the volume by the strength of your tap. Experiment with getting different sounds. When you move the tuning forks quickly they will create a beautiful ringing overtone.
Remember that the tuning forks are musical instruments that need your expression and creativity to be empowered. Be creative and enjoy!

Instructional video by Dr. John Beaulieu "Tuning Fork Basics - How to hold and tap your tuning forks":



Our tuning forks are made from special aluminum alloy rather than stainless steel. Our aluminum tuning forks cost approximately 50% less than stainless steel forks and do more with equivalent or better quality in terms of sound. Our scientific research indicates nitric oxide is conducted with our aluminum alloy tuning forks. Aluminum tuning forks are more affordable, versatile, and easier to use than stainless steel forks. Our aluminum forks sustain longer pure tones as well as ring sustained overtones. Thirty years of feedback from practitioners has let us know that the aluminum forks are easier to use, and are indeed the preferred fork in terms of clarity of the sound, tone, and cost.

Tuning forks

OM tuner
136,10 Hz

Achieve a state of deep relaxation in seconds with the primordial vibrations of “OM.” Physically tune your body to the OM vibration and enter a state of balanced wholeness ideal for healing and higher consciousness. Helps center the body and mind when placed on the rib heads, thoracic vertebra, sternum, sacrum and illiums. Helps meditators and yoga practitioners achieve desired states effortlessly.


  • A state of balanced wholeness
  • For deep meditation
  • Center the body and mind

In India this tone is the keynote of the Sitar and Tambura Also the sacred syllable "OM" is tuned to this tone like most religious music. The rishies or spiritual master of India believed that the musical tone sadja or sa, which means the father of all others, to be the musical sound which resonates with the never ending primordial vibration OM. The rishies arrived at sa through deep meditation. To this day, Indian musicians approach tuning their instruments as a meditation to set the Spiritual tone for a whole concert. The effect of India’s meditative music is based on a musician’s ability to tune to sa.

The Swiss scientist Hans Cousto, author of the Cosmic Octave, discovered how to convert planetary cycles into musical pitches. Using his system the sa corresponds to the sound of one Earth year of the time it takes the earth to circle the Sun. To arrive at the frequency of 136.10 Hz, an earth year is reduced to a second (frequencies are measured in cycles per second). An earth year is 365.242 days and an earth day is 86,400 seconds. When the days are multiplied by seconds the answer will be 315,567,925.9747 seconds equal one earth year. To arrive at an audible sound, 315,567,925.9747 seconds are divided into one (year) and then raised 32 octaves. The result will be the audible tone of answer 32 times the result will be 136.10 Hz. The cosmic note OM.


Hold your OM tuning fork by the stem between your thumb and first finger. Do not apply a lot of pressure. Gently tap the weights on your knees, tapping pad, or palm of your hands. This will set the weights in motion and create a clear, deep and sustained tone. Bring the double-pronged side of the OM fork about an inch from your ear(s) and adjust the distance for volume.

You can use your OM fork directly on the body and acupressure points by tapping your fork in the same way. With the finger or thumb of your free hand, locate the spot on the body where you want to place the tuning fork, then tap your fork and press the single end of the fork’s stem onto the spot. Make a firm contact and hold the tuning fork until you feel the vibrations stop. The Om fork is especially effective when placed on the rib heads, thoracic vertebra, sternum, sacrum and illiums. For example, tap the OM fork and press it to your sternum. Close your eyes and feel the vibration. After a while hum “OM” in resonance with the vibration. Another way to use your OM fork during bodywork sessions is to apply it to the spinal processes of the back and/or directly onto the sacrum (or any bone in the body you wish to bring the harmonic resonance of the OM vibration).

Review: "After my great aunt's death, the family condo was left uninhabited after 25 years of family residence. Once it had sold, I physically cleaned the condo, then, wanting it energetically cleared as well, I used the OM tuner, touching it while it vibrated to every surface in the condo, including cabinets, door jambs, walls, floors, even windows. The next morning, an intuitive friend of my great aunt's came to help me move the last few items out of the condo. She didn't know I'd planned on doing any energetic clearing. She walked in the front door and stopped, amazed, saying the condo felt completely empty, there was no sense of my great aunt at all, and the condo felt like a blank slate. My daughter and her boyfriend have been doing a major remodel of a house they're about to move into. My daughter has asked me to help clear the house energetically and the OM tuner will be an integral part of that process."

Beschouwd als de oerklank waaruit alle andere klanken zijn voortgekomen is de OM klank een uitstekend uitgangspunt voor mensen die geïnteresseerd zijn in het helen met klank en geluid. Veel ervaren klankgenezers werken met deze toon. Deze OM stemvork klinkt op de toonhoogte van 136.10 Hz, in het middenbereik, overal beschouwd als de klassieke OM frequentie. De OM klankvibratie werkt zowel ontspannend als energiegevend. Het mee resoneren met de OM frequentie kan de ademhaling verbeteren, spanning in het lichaam oplossen, hulp bieden bij concentratie, meditatie en het omgaan met pijn, en is een uitstekende achtergrond bij yoga. De klankgolf die deze stemvorken voortbrengen werkt als een soort kinetische energie die disharmonie en spanning uit het lichaam verdrijft en tegelijkertijd een gevoel van welzijn teweegbrengt. De Ohm stemvork is gemaakt van een speciale aluminium legering gebaseerd op ruimtevaart technologie. Hij zal nooit ontstemd raken en blijft na het aanslaan lang doorklinken. OM, Aoum, is een heel specifieke frequentie (136,10 Hz) die al in de oudheid bekend stond als de meest krachtige trilling.
Wij adviseren om ook de cd's "There is No Place Like Ohm" Vol. 1 en 2 te gebruiken tijdens therapie sessies (deze CDs zijn te koop bij Merlyn). De OM klank interfereert op indrukwekkende wijze met de stemvorken, het geeft meer diepte aan de sessies en vult de ruimte met de Ohm klank. De cd is ook een goede begeleiding bij het het "OM chanten", het wordt als dynamisch en bevrijdend ervaren.

De Synodic Moon (Luna) stemvorken hebben een wat specifiekere toepassing.


Algemeen wordt aangenomen dat de maan verbonden is met het element water. Ons lichaam bestaat voor het grootste deel uit water, en het reageert ook op de maan, net als de getijden van de zee. Vanwege die relatie zijn deze stemvorken bij uitstek geschikt om aandoeningen te behandelen die te maken hebben met de lichaamsvloeistoffen: vocht vasthouden, verstopping bij sinussen en longen, artritis en chronische gewrichtspijn. Toepassing van de Luna stemvorken, in het bijzonder in combinatie met het Om (de Ohm stemvorken) om zo de planetaire Vijfde te vormen, helpt om zachtjes vochtophoping te verspreiden ofwel zachtjes vloeistoffen naar een plek te brengen (de waterhuishouding wordt verbeterd). Dit proces kan op dieper niveau beter plaatsvinden in het hele netwerk van meridianen door het openen en de productieve mogelijkheden van de Vijfde. De klankgolf van de Luna stemvorken maakt een meer specifieke opening van energiestroom mogelijk. De klanken dringen zachtjes door, waarbij verstopping en stagnatie worden opgeheven, zodat de levenskracht (Qi) weer kan doorstromen en de centrale energiebanen in het lichaam weer geactiveerd worden.

Otto tuner 128

Directly used on the body to help align your physical structure, the Otto Tuner resonates the bones, stimulates the nerves and releases tension from the body. Vibrating your bones with deep earth tones, the Otto Tuner brings a sense of deep relaxation and soothing peace. It relieves muscle tension, spasms, pain, and improves circulation by relaxing constricting muscle tissue and causing increased blood flow.


  • Deep relaxation and soothing peace
  • Relaxes body tissue
  • Relieves muscle tension, spasms, and pain
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Stimulates nerves on the skin and hair

The Otto tuners are used for relaxation, the sound vibrates into the bones for relaxation. The Otto Tuners are tuned to the frequencies of 32Hz, 64Hz and 128Hz. They vibrate at a low pitch and due to their weighted ends the sound lasts longer than that of regular tuning forks. Their frequencies are based on an 8Hz fundamental tone raised in octaves (i.e. 8Hz, 16Hz, 32Hz, 64Hz, 128Hz.) The 8Hz fundamental, which based on the pulsation of the planet earth, is the generating tone for all our tuning forks.

The 128 Otto Tuner is especially effective when placed on the rib heads, thorasic vertebra, sternum and illiums. Two Otto Tuners tapped gently on the knees and held to the ears create a beautiful sustained low tone, which is excellent for grounding and relaxation. The 64 Otto Tuner is especially effective when placed on the lower lumbar vertebrae, sacrum and coccyx. Its vibration helps loosen the sacral ligaments as well as stimulating and balancing the ganglion of impar, a center for controlling the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. The 32 Otto Tuner works with your skin and hair to stimulate nerves.

Otto Tuners are available in three Different Frequencies: 32, 64 and 128Hz. It is recommended to start with the Otto 128.


For using the 128 and 64 Otto Tuners with bones and ligament, hold the forks by the stem and gently tap them on your knee. With the finger or thumb of your free hand locate the spot on the body where you want to place the tuning fork. Press the end of the stem of the tuning fork onto the spot. Make a firm contact and hold the tuning fork until you feel the vibrations stop.

For listening, hold the 128 Otto Tuner by the stem and gently tap the weights on your knees or tapping pad. Bring the tuning fork(s) to your ears and adjust the distance by tone. Hold one fork about an inch from your left ear and one an inch from to the right ear. This creates a long sustained pitch. This works well with the 128 Otto. The 64 and 32 Ottos may also be used in this manner. When tapping the 64 Otto and 32 Otto, gently tap the body (the weighted portion) of the tuning fork on your palm. This will set the weights in motion and create a pure tone.

The 32 Otto is especially effective for stimulating nerves on the skin and hair. Tap it by the body as described and than lightly touch your skin or hair with the edge of the tuning fork body. You will fell it stimulate, vibrate, and “tug” at your skin and hair. You can also tap the fork and move it very slowly across an area just above your skin without touching.

DNA Tuner

The "MI" 528 DNA Repair tuning fork is the third note of the original 6 Sacred Solfeggio frequencies is "Mi" for "Miracles" and is 528 Hz. It is the exact frequency used by genetic engineers throughout the world to repair the blueprint of life, DNA, the healthy core of which is a six-sided crystal of structured water.

Dr. Lee Lorenzen, a world renowned biochemist working with water crystallization methods to rejuvenate DNA says "I was intrigued by the frequencies of the healing codes. The third frequency is well known to scientists working on DNA repair.''

Mi 528 Hz DNA repair refers to a collection of processes by which a cell identifies and corrects damage to the DNA molecules that encode its genome. Genomes are subject to damage by chemical and physical agents in the environment (e.g. UV and ionizing radiations, chemical mutagens, fungal and bacterial toxins, etc.) and by free radicals or alkylating agents endogenously generated in metabolism. DNA is also damaged because of errors during its replication.

BODY TUNERS (set 2 tuners)

Body Tuners

listen to the Aquaphone ...

The Body Tuners are a wonderful way to begin your sonic exploration. They are a set of 2 tuning forks, the C and the G. These notes create the special interval in music and sound therapies, called the Perfect Fifth, that balances the energy systems. Listening to these two different tones, your body makes one tone, bringing your whole nervous system to balance and integrating your mind and body. Within 30 seconds (the same amount of time it takes to stretch a muscle), you can achieve a state of unification and deep relaxation, which might take you 45 minutes to reach through meditation.


  • Instantaneous deep relaxation
  • A state of unification
  • Altered state of consciousness
  • Re-proportions your body

The Body Tuners consist of two tuning forks, the C and the G, they create a ratio of 3/2. Body Tuners are a special interval known in music as a perfect fifth. Lao Tzu referred to this interval as the sound of universal harmony between the forces of Yin and Yang. In India, the fifth is believed to create a sound through which Shiva calls Shakti to the dance of life. Apollo, the Greek Sun God of Music and Healing plucked the fifth on his Sacred lyre to call dolphin messengers to Delphi. These are some of the reasons it has been called "perfect". The Body Tuners are a wonderful way to begin your sonic exploration. You can enhance your experience of the Body Tuners by adding the intervals of the Solar Harmonic Spectrum.

Review: "I tried them on children in pre-school where I am working. They love the tuners. It helps me to centre myself very quickly."


Solar Harmonic Spectrum

Tune your body to the healing sounds of Pythagorean Tuning Forks. The Solar Harmonic Spectrum is a full octave of tuning forks (C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C) in a beautiful velvet pouch. Each interval affects your nervous system in a different way by activating a chakra, a specific elemental quality, and a corresponding color. The Solar Harmonic Spectrum emanates pure sounds and overtones to help you relax and center yourself. Each interval relates to a different state of consciousness and body posture, and supports overall balancing. This set of 8 tuning forks is the basic tool for sound healing.


  • Fast, instantaneous relaxation
  • Altered state of consciousness
  • Re-proportions your body
  • Physical/psychic repatterning of your mind, body and spirit
  • Develop and refine your sonic abilities

SOLFEGGIO (set 6 tuners)

Solar Harmonic Spectrum


Where does the term Solfeggio come from?

Today Solfeggio is a singing technique used to teach music students how to recognize musical intervals. We are all familiar with the Solfeggio scale either from singing it in elementary school music class or from popular songs like “Do Re Me” from the Sound of Music, C D E F G A B or Do Re Mi Fa So, La Si

The Christian roots of Solfeggio go back to a Gregorian Chant titled The Hymm to St. John the Babtist written by Paul the Deacon in the 8th Century A.D.. The hymm contains the original Do Re Mi although in the those days it was Ut Re Mi. Ut was changed to “Do” in the 1600’s and the change from Sa to Si is lost to antiquity. The lyrics to The Hymm to St. John the Babitist are: "Utqueant laxis Resonare fibris Mira gestorum Famuli tuorum Solve polluti Labii rreatru Sancte lohannes". The Latin text translates as “So that your servants may sing with clear voices the wonders of your deeds and wash the guilt from their stained lips.” My modified translation based on my knowledge of sound healing is “So that we, the servants of the divine, may sing with tuned voices, and bring ourselves in resonance with the wonders of your vibrational universe”.

Solfeggio is based on a natural system of tuning called Pythagorean tuning. Pythagoras the Greek was a philosopher and mathematician who lived from 570-­‐ 496BC. In the West, the intervals of the Solfeggio are at least 1500 years old. In the East in Indian classical music, the equivalent to the Solfeggio is called sargam. Sargam is an acronym that represents musical tones similar to Do Re Mi. The sargam system for singing and chanting tones has been used in India thousands of years and is also based on natural intervals, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni.

The Solfeggio (set of 6) include : the 396 Hz, 417 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz and 852 Hz tuning forks.

UT – 396 Hz
RE – 417 Hz
MI – 528 Hz
FA – 639 Hz
SOL – 741 Hz
LA – 852 Hz

ANGEL TUNERS (set 3 tuners)

Angel tuners

Based on the ninth octave of the overtone series, the Angel Tuner opens the passageway to angelic kingdoms. By vibrating your cranial bones, the Angel Tuner opens the gateway for spiritual insights and experiences. This tuner enhances your connection to universal energy for manifesting inspiration and a meditative state, as well as connections with higher powers, visions, and creative expression.


  • Enhances connection to universal energy
  • Spiritual insights and experiences
  • Manifestation of inspiration and a meditative state
  • Connect with higher powers and creative expression

The Angel Tuners™ are based on the ninth octave of the overtone series. In the overtone series a fundamental tone creates a second tone and the second tone creates a third tone, etc. These tones ascend in pitch. This rising in pitch of the overtone series represents the archetypal images of Jacob's Ladder and the stairway to heaven. Alexander Scriaben, a Russian composer, believed ninth octave overtones would bring forth a new era and unite Heaven and Earth. His last composition "Mysterium" was to be played in India using bells hung from clouds sounding these overtones.

Crystal tuner

* Crystal not included

With a frequency tuned to the pulsation of the Earth, the Crystal Tuner amplifies the healing power of crystals through sonic vibration. Enhancing a crystal’s ability for light conduction and powerful sound healing, when tapped on a crystal, this tuning fork forms a bridge between Heaven and Earth. When you lightly hold the Crystal and Crystal Tuning Fork, a pulsating wave moving between the tuning fork and crystal may be felt.


  • Powerful sound healing
  • Enhances a crystal’s ability for light conduction
  • Forms a bridge between Heaven and Earth

The Crystal Tuner is tuned to a frequency of 4096 cycles per second (Hz). This frequency is generated from an 8 Hz fundamental tone raised nine octaves (i.e. 8 Hz, 32 Hz, 64 Hz, 128 Hz, 256 Hz, 512 Hz, 1024 Hz, 2048 Hz, 4096 Hz.) The 8 Hz fundamental resonates with the pulsation of the Earth. The ninth octave of the upper overtone series begins with 4096 Hz and is said to open the doorway to angelic kingdoms. Alexander Scriaben, the Russian composer, believed that this octave united Heaven and Earth and would bring forth a new era. His last composition “Mysterium” was to be played in India using bells hung from clouds sounding ninth octave harmonics.


Hold a quartz crystal in one hand and the crystal tuning fork in your other hand. Gently tap the crystal fork on the rough end (not the point) of the crystal. Close your eyes and meditate on the sound as well as the feeling of the crystal in your hand. When working with another person, hold the crystal off the body with the point towards the area you want to energize. Gently tap the rough end of the crystal with the tuning fork. Let the sound move gently into the person’s energy field. Visualize it with color and/or spinning in a positive direction. There are many possibilities for the Crystal Tuning Fork. Let your creativity and healing ability be your guide.

CHAKRA TUNERS (set 7 tuners)

chakra set tuning forks


Premium stainless steel - made in Germany

The Chakra Tuning Forks are a set of 7 forks tuned to the vibration of each of the traditional Hindu chakras. They were discovered by a Swiss mathematician and musicologist Hans Cousto.

The Chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation (the fans make the shape of a love heart). Rotating vortices of subtle matter, they are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. The Chakra Set is a set of Tuning Forks that can be used with the chakra system.

There are 7 Tuning Forks in this set. It is based on the mathematical rotation of the planets around our Sun. These forks are NOT based on a musical scale. They work more on the cosmic multi-dimensions of our chakras, our not-noticeable bodies or subtle parts. They also work on pathways as well as other gateways of energy. The planetary cycle of the solar system is used to arrive at accurate formulae on which these tuning forks have been created. This links them to our cosmic multi-dimensional selves. This self is eternal, not noticeable and approachable through layers, ladders, gateways and manifold levels of energy. These tuning forks prepare pathways to a Cosmic Universal understanding of Life and our Soul's infinite relationship to it. In comparison, it is unlike the Harmonic Spectrum Set, which is tuned to the Pythagorean Scale (also known as the Just Scale) and is more in touch with the physical plane of existence and works at a more physical level. The physical plane is more concentrated, crystallized in definite form, cognitive and revolves around the 5 human senses and various parts of our physical body like the tissues, fluids, bones, organs, etc. The Swiss mathematician and musicologist Hans Cousto has developed them.

  • Tuning Fork 1: Root Chakra - Muladhara (Survival) Synodic Day 194.18 Hz / G3
  • Tuning Fork 2: Sacral Chakra - Swadhisthana (Sexuality) Synodic Moon 210.42 Hz / G3#
  • Tuning Fork 3: Navel Chakra - Manipura (Power) Sun 126.22 Hz / B2 (H2)
  • Tuning Fork 4: Heart Chakra - Anahata (Love) Earth 136.10 Hz / C3#
  • Tuning Fork 5: Throat Chakra - Vishuddha (Communication) Mercury 141.27 Hz / C3#

BRAIN TUNERS (set 5 tuners)

Brain tuners

Brain Tuners

Brain Tuners are based on brain wave studies using electroencephalography (EEG) technology to map different states of consciousness known as Delta, Theta, Alpha, and Beta. Delta is associated with deep sleep. Theta is associated with meditation and dream states. Alpha is associated with relaxed awareness, creativity, and heightened learning. Beta is associated with high alertness and focus.

When the Brain Tuners™ are simultaneously sounded - one in the left ear and the other in the right ear - the two hemispheres of the brain function together to integrate the two sounds, creating a third, different tone called a binaural beat. When the Fundamental Brain Tuner tuning fork is sounded with a Delta, Theta, Alpha, or Beta tuning fork the difference between the two tuning forks creates a binaural beat which is heard as a pulsation. The binaural beat gently signals the brain to shift into a different state of consciousness.

When we go through a 24-hour cycle, we shift into different states of consciousness determined by our life requirements. One can visualize a car that shifts into different gears as necessary to meet the requirements of the road, i.e. a low gear for pick up and climbing hills, a medium gear for slow driving, and a high gear for highway cruising. In a similar way, living our life requires shifting into "different gears" for different situations.

The following table will help you understand what state of consciousness you're in as well as the state you would ideally like to shift into. The graphics show the EEG rhythms the brain produces in that particular state of consciousness.

State of Consciousness
EEG Rhythms
Ideally For
Beta state is associated with peak concentration, heightened alertness, hand eye coordination and visual acuity. -Peak-concentration
-Heightened alertness
-Visual acuity
Alpha state is a place of deep relaxation, but not quite meditation. In Alpha, we begin to access the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness - it is the gateway, the entry point that leads into deeper states of consciousness. -Relaxation
-Quietly Alert
Theta is known as the twilight state which we normally only experience fleetingly as we rise up out of the depths of delta upon waking, or drifting off to sleep. In Theta, we are in a waking dream, vivid imagery flashes before the mind's eye and we are receptive to information beyond our normal conscious awareness. Theta has also been identified as the gateway to learning an memory. -Waking-dream
-Vivid imagery
Delta is associated with deep sleep and long trains of thoughts about nothingness or energy without form. During delta we plug into our source, the Universal Energy Field, and use the energy to revitalize our mind and body. -Detached Awareness
-Deep Sleep

Using the Brain Tuners

The Knee Tap Technique - The method for sounding the Brain Tuners is called "the knee tap":

  1. Hold your tuning forks by the stems with moderate pressure - not to tight and not to loose. Do not hold your tuning forks by the prongs because the prongs need to vibrate in order to create the sound.
  2. Gently tap the flat side of the tuning fork on your knee cap. Do not hit your kneecap. All it takes is a gentle firm tap and your tuning fork will sound.
  3. It is best to tap the Fundamental Brain Tuner on one knee and then the Delta, Theta, Alpha, or Beta Brain Tuner the other knee.
  4. Bring the forks slowly to your ears, about 3 to six inches from your ear canal, and listen to the sounds.

Shifting your State of Consciousness

Once you have mastered the knee tap method then tune into your current state of consciousness. Follow these steps:

  1. Consult the chart above and ask yourself what state of consciousness you would like to shift into.
  2. Select the Fundamental Brain Tuner and the Brain Tuner that matches the state of consciousness you want.
  3. Holding the Brain Tuners in your hands ready to tap, visualize and/or remember a positive experience for the state of consciousness you want.
  4. Tap the Brain Tuners and listen to the pulsation. Let go and allow yourself to shift.

When the sound fades, switch the tuning forks in your hands and tap them again. Enjoy!

"Sound Healing with Values Visualization" - John Beaulieu

In this current and anticipated sequel Dr. Beaulieu emphasizes the role of consciousness / self-awareness in creating and cementing the therapeutic effects of sound healing practices. The essential task of sound healing practices consists of “creating a healing intention for sound”. Foreword by David Perez-Martinez, M.D.

Our intentions can be tuned to our highest values. This ground breaking and pioneering new work explores the vibratory nature of existence through science, mindful listening, and creative sound explorations. The Values Visualization™ process, designed by Dr. Beaulieu, is presented to create highly tuned intentions, based on our values, that are focused on healing and the attainment of life goals. When a highly tuned intention of value is carried into the core brain by sound, multi-dimensional neural networks instantly form in resonance with one’s intention that lead to healing outcomes and goal obtainment.

Step by step protocols and guided meditations that you can immediately use are presented for yourself, family, and friends, as well as for healing arts professionals.
