Harmony and harmonics

In music, a sound (or a sound wave) is a superposition of elementary sounds called harmonics whose frequencies are multiple of the fundamental frequency (fo): the harmonics of a fundamental sound of frequency fo will thus be 2fo, 3fo, 4fo, etc. When a music note has the double of the frequency of another one, they have the same name and there is an octave between them.

When a musical instrument emits a perfect note starting from several identical notes (for example, a sound of C created from 3 C out of 3 different octaves), the frequencies of these three notes are phase-conjugated.

When we breathe at the frequency of our “primary respiration” (fig.7):

  • our HF wave is in phase with our LF wave,
  • HF frequency (10 cycles/min in our example) is the double of LF frequency (5cycles/min in our example)


We thus produce the same note (the same sound, the same vibration) on two different octaves

And if we breathe at the frequency of our MID-TIDE respiration (fig.9):

  • VLF waves, LF and HF waves are in phase,
  • The frequencies corresponding to the VLF waves , LF waves and HF waves are in a respective ratio of 2.5/5/10 cycles/minute


We thus produce the same note (the same sound, the same vibration) on three different octaves

We thus carry out a true HARMONIZATION of our fundamental frequency.

The symphony of life

In music, each symphony has his particularity. We can like it or never appreciate it. We can also like it today and be very much less sensitive tomorrow. Being rocked by rhythms, our body is also a symphony: our vibratory state (or our vibrations) will define ourselves and interacts with us so that we will be today more sensitive to certain music or to certain colours,…

In a symphonic orchestra, it is important that each instrument can vibrate to the maximum of its possibilities: if a piano or a violin is slightly detuned, we can still recognise the piece of music but the resulting vibration will not be harmonious. On the other hand, if the music conductor does not direct his musicians correctly, it leads to a true cacophony and it is not possible to identify the music piece anymore. If a good conductor can minimize the defects of some of his musicians, the best musicians of the world can not achieve a masterpiece if the conductor is not completely present.

To vibrate in harmony, it is important for all of our instruments to vibrate at their maximal amplitude. But it is also necessary that all of our instruments vibrate in harmony. If it is not the case, the resulted cacophony exhausts the body and inevitably induces some other damages. To take another field of comparison, when the pistons of a car are badly synchronized, the engine does not run smoothly, the car is less powerful, and the lifespan of the engine will be very much decreased.

We see all the importance of the music conductor or the importance of the quality of the mechanic. Our body also requires a very powerfull conductor. When our autonomous system is disturbed, there are different ways to make it more powerful: for example relieving, sophrology and the biofeedback.
