The subtlety, the tenderness and the charm are always present in this musical theme that reminds us through long and slow sounds the combination of major and minor tones.
Stimulates and recalls moments of childhood with the recognition of voices, colors, toys, the cradle, rattles, and musical box, in short with everything that surrounded our children’s environment to enter into complicity with the “dream”, which is undoubtedly the eternal friend of every human being.
The sound reaches the brain and touches neuralgic points to stimulate them and translate them into something pleasant, surpassing the threshold at which words cannot arrive with such effectiveness and eloquence.
It is a treatment that uses melodies, rhythms and harmony to cover psychosocial needs.
Madame Sousatzka, masterfully played by Shirley MacLaine in 1988, was destined to be a great concert performer.
But the designs of the lord and an anxious mother who pushes her onstage too soon make her a somewhat bitter piano teacher who teaches in a rococo apartment in London on the verge of eviction.
Beyond the fiction of this not very well known film, the chords of the piano manage to relax the most neurotic.
Sitting comfortably on a sofa, in dim light, after a tedious workday, is necessary.
Listening to music for this purpose is an alternative therapeutic discipline that is increasingly used.
A matter of counteracting the dizzying pace of society.
Although music therapy is known from very remote times; It is not until the twentieth century, specifically in the decade of the 40s, when it begins to be used as part of recovery treatments, providing people with positive effects both mentally and physically.
FREE STRESS AND STRESS
This therapy uses music and some of its elements such as sound, melody, rhythm and harmony to assist the physical, mental, social and cognitive needs of the person.
Experts clearly indicate its benefits: it releases stress and tension, lightens the symptoms of depression and achieves high levels of relaxation.
According to specialists, music therapy can have educational, preventive or simply psychotherapeutic purposes.
In addition, they say, it facilitates communication, promotes individual expression and favors social integration. Of course, they have to be slow and smooth harmonies that manage to soften physical activity to increase the contemplative.
To the question of “What disorders are recommended especially?”, Ivanna Julbe, psychologist, states: “Music therapy can help and be effective in various types of disorders such as: in children with specific needs, as it promotes the development and improvement in areas such as concentration, attention and impulse control, among others.
It is also effective in generalized developmental disorder, in language and personality disorder, in depressions, insomnia, in neurological diseases and also, in a more generalized use, helps reduce anxiety and stress. “
Germán Eduardo Sabogal, director of the Integral Foundation of Music Therapy and Sicoacústica (FIMS), explains that all of us recognize when some melodies are sad and others happy.
“We can also intuit how they influence us emotionally and, for that reason, we choose musical works according to those energies that we have at different times.”
Sabogal says that there are studies that conclude that melodies that also contain words achieve better results.
“There are also data, which show that listening to classical music helps to increase cell reproduction and makes the rhythm of breathing and heartbeats conform to the environment, which comes to provide well-being to babies, because everything positive that the child perceives from the moment he is in the womb and during the following five years he affects his development, “he explains.
California surgeon plays duets with the patient before surgery
Some doctors have a better way to be by the beds than others, but Dr.
William Sloan certainly took the award last month for harmonious interaction
with his patient.
Dr. Sloan, an urolist and amateur violinist, played several duets with his patient, Sergio Vigilato, a professional musician who sang and played on an acoustic guitar, just before going to the operating room at Dignity Health Glendale Memorial in the Los Angeles area.
The two played duets, including “Tennessee Waltz.” They could have continued all day if it were not for the fact that several surgeries were scheduled for the day.
Without a doubt, it is a beautiful interaction in sight, and for me, it illustrates many of the fundamental reasons why we play music: Dr. Sloan and patient – Conducting a soothing duel before the Dignity Health Glendale Memorial surgery.
If Dr. Sloan looks or sounds familiar to you, he may have been a great
supporter of violin art for a long time. The owner of the 1714 “Leonora
Jackson” Stradivari and a Guarneri del Gesù 1742, Dr. Sloan has been
generous in lending his violins to both the performing artists and to the
violin makers for study and copying.
And as if that was not enough, Dr. Sloan has used the surgeon’s hands to make three violins. He is a regular participant in the annual summer workshops of the Violin Society of America at Oberlin College, where he has completed the creation of three instruments.
I had the great privilege of playing his second (“Sloaneri # 2”, he calls it), which he generously lent me while my Gagliano was being repaired last summer; It was lovely to play and I even used it in a quartet recital.
Dr. Sloan and his wife, Judy, also celebrate an annual Boxing Day tradition – every year musicians from all over the world gather at their home in Los Angeles to play Handel’s Messiah the day after Christmas.
The house has its own history; He was previously owned by Alexander Borisoff, the last major cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, who had guests to play in the music room, guests such as cellist Gregor Piatigorsky and violinists Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein and Albert Einstein.
The point is that here a very busy person, who nevertheless finds time
to allow musical connections to grow, even in the most unlikely places.
Music helps us build the spirits of the other; Feed our own souls. In
all the lessons we learn about the violin – how to play in tone and time and on
the right side of the string – let’s not forget that one.
Music has taken a lot of importance in the affective, psychological, educational and social development of the human being; its study has allowed to conceive it as a process that integrates different facets, all of them very important for the human being.
Through music you can obtain incredible results in the development of hearing, perception, emotion, sensation, multiple intelligences, emotional intelligences, development of auditory memory and / or musical technique, attention management, auditory discrimination, development of creativity, auditory, rhythmic development and awareness.
In these works Germán Sabogal contemplates a range of multiplier effects
that not only evoke feelings, but also recreate a number of memories of our
past from the central nervous system and improve our quality through harmonic,
melodic and rhythmic sounds and combinations .
This musical album provides us with tools that help us recreate events
and circumstances of our past, from the very bosom of the mother to our days,
transmitting positive moods and stimulating our senses.
The compositions are within the concept of music therapy and
psychoacoustic using drums, triangles, musical boxes, marimbas, rattles,
industrial sounds (engines, car whistles), sounds of the environment (water,
wind, drizzle, waterfalls, among others) that help us to a better
Directed to health, education, relaxation, spirituality, proper stimulation, imaginary friends, onomatopoeias, meditation, emotional intelligences, multiple intelligences, moods and everything related to our sensory motor development and audio perception.
In the absence of case-control studies that determine the magnitude of
the effect of music therapy on breastfeeding, the tests carried out on 22
mothers during the first days of life of the babies are very revealing. After
obtaining their consent, an open response pre-intervention survey was
administered related to maternal personal data and some characteristics of
their sound identity.
Afterwards, a card was prepared for the observation of the response to
the music of the mother’s dyad during breastfeeding. And, finally, a new
maternal post-intervention survey was administered related to the
characteristics of breastfeeding. The sounds of nature and ambient music
Mozart, however, made two babies get excited instead of relaxing. The
results obtained were, with respect to the maternal sound identity, that 66% do
not remember the music that their mother sang to them and 97% listened to music
before and During pregnancy. 67% like to sing but only 9% sang to the baby
95% establish a good emotional relationship during music therapy
Only in 9% of the cases there were indirect signs of poor breastfeeding
90% of the mothers of the group decided on breastfeeding. As Salomé told
the Asturian press, “all the women who took the shots listening to this
music had more facility to feed their children with breast milk.
It is a circle that closes on itself: the music numbs the babies, who
stop crying. This relaxes mothers and eliminates their anxiety when
breastfeeding; As they are less tense, their heart rate decreases and that also
calms the babies, who perceive the heartbeat of their mothers while they are
Of course, music therapy is not an exact science and you have to try out
what music is best for each baby. In fact, in this study it turned out that, in
general, the sounds of nature and ambient music worked well.
Mozart, however, caused two babies to get excited instead of relaxing
and Fito and the Fitipaldis invariably numbed one of them.
In any case, the research concludes that the new health systems should
include music therapy as a complementary therapy to medical acts, to promote
humanization and comfort.
It is very beneficial, in addition, that these activities begin before
birth, with the preparation for childbirth and the involvement of both members
of the couple.
“Experience shows that the more the father participates in the
preparation for childbirth, the more he can support and give emotional support
to the woman during and after it.
And the emotional support of the couple helps the woman to bond with the baby and also to develop the art of breastfeeding, “explains Helene.

Among the purposes of the Tolimense Germán Sabogal is breaking the Guinness Word record. The Green Party Tour – “Abraze La Paz Ambiental” will also bring together 10,000 musicians from the Capital of Colombia in the city of Bogotá and from different regions of our country.
The event, which will be held in various stages of the
Republic’s Capital, with the aim of continuing with the process after the
success it had at the Conservatory of Music of Ibagué, “Amina Melendro de
Pulecio” where it gathered more than 2,150 musicians and Dancers from
Ibagué, about 1,600 young people from the Conservatory. It will also have more
than 100 musicians on the scene, including the symphony orchestras, the
philharmonic, the baton and choirs of the different universities of the
capital, the polyphonic choir and the dances of Ibagué.
Another of the objectives of the “Green
Party” Tour is to generate a sense of belonging among the companies that
are linked to the project, as well as to start educating young people so that
they have a respect for natural resources, such as water for example.
To expand the project throughout the world and in all
languages, the Tolima musician has thought of everything, we will have that day
to young people playing a hymn that I composed for that occasion and that makes
a direct reference to the environmental issue. And “Cumbia Andina”,
Symphonic instrumental theme alluding to the union of the Latin-American
peoples. The idea is that the interpretation is done in several languages starting
with Spanish, said Sabogal who also assured that that day will have a sound of
more than 250 thousand watts.
That day in the city of Bogotá there will be more than
eight giant screens in which images of the landscape and natural resources of
Colombia will be screened, as well as messages that will awaken the ecological
conscience of the more than 10,000 thousand musicians who will be on stage that
This assembly will be in charge of Germán Sabogal, who
in turn will record live the concert and will make a documentary of the more
than two hours that will last the presentation.
The idea with this material, says Sabogal “We
start to rotate it through social interaction pages such as Google Streaming,
Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, etc. We are also thinking that we can work with
the embassies of the world accredited in our country, so that the concert we
can replicate in other capitals of the world, “affirmed the musician
And “Cumbia Andina”, Symphonic instrumental theme alluding to the union of the Latin-American peoples.
A concert for Guinness Word Records.
1.-One of the main objectives of this call, which is
making the teacher Germán Sabogal, is to apply to the Guinness Word records.
The organization of the event considers that bringing
together about 10,000 professional musicians in a single stage under the same
cause, could be considered a Guinness record. To do this, on the day of the
concert there will be delegates who certify that the concert and its audience
can enter the list of prestigious records.
2.-The union of the Latin American peoples
“Cumbia symphonic Andean”
3.- Concerted support with the governmental and private entities so that the musical works of Maestro Germán Sabogal, are interpreted by the orchestras: Symphonic, Philharmonic, Batuta and choirs of the public and private universities of our National territory.
Christmas Carols Tagged as stimulants to improve the quality of life in terminally ill patients, electroacoustic and organic sounds, elements of nature, geriatric, limbic and generally for the common people, pre and post pregnancy, psychiatric.
Hear, sing, dance and play are the natural elements, that all humans use
when they hear melodies that remind us of our childhood especially when we hear Christmas carols that have been tradition and heritage of humanity.
For this song we use elements of nature, electroacoustic and organic sounds , as stimulants to improve the quality of life in terminally ill patients, geriatric, psychiatric, pre and post pregnancy, limbic and generally for the common people.
These Instrumentales carols arrive with new clothes and have the power to mitigate the ailments of the body with a Christmas message of love, hope and deep faith.
Solfeggio frequencies are sound frequencies used for healing purposes.
The history of these healing sounds is fascinating.
It turns out that such sounds were sung accurately in the context of ancient Gregorian chants, but the exact frequency, technique and knowledge of their healing properties were lost somehow later in the history of mankind.
It was Dr. Joseph Puleo, who rediscovered the Solfeggio sounds in the 70s by finding the frequencies (measured in Hertz) of these unique healing sounds.
The interesting thing is that Puleo found that these frequencies appear encoded in the Bible, in the book of Numbers
A notorious scientific validation that these patterns can be used as vibratory frequencies of healing, is the fact that the frequency of 528 Hz is precisely the one used by geneticists today to repair damage to human DNA.
Why are they called Solfeggio sounds?
In music theory, “Solfeggio” (solfeggio) is the vocalization of tones on a music scale (also called “solfa”, or syllables).
The original scale Solfeggio was composed of six tones.
The names of these six original sounds (Ut, Re Mi, Fa, Sol, La) came as abbreviations of the first stanza (in Latin) of the famous Medieval hymn “Ut queant laxis”, written by Paul the deacon in the 8th century AD. for the feast of the birth of Saint John the Baptist:
“Ut queant laxis Resonare fibris
Mira gestorum Famuli tuorum
Solve polluti Labii reatum
Sancte Iohannes “
There are many translations and interpretations of this text in Latin, but ultimately, it is an imploration to Saint John to “cleanse our lips contaminated from sin”, so that we can “sing with loose vocal cords the wonders” of his acts.
Are these secret frequencies different from those of the modern diatonic scale?
These frequencies are quite different from those of the modern musical scale (also known as the diatonic scale) of do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-si (or “ti”), which in English translates as C-D-E-F-G-A-B. For example, the “do” or “C” of the modern diatonic scale vibrates at a frequency of approximately 256 (central DO on the piano) or 512 Hz (one octave higher than the C-average), while the “do” of the Solfeggio scale vibrates at a frequency of 528 Hz.
What are the healing properties that are attributed to the original frequencies of Solfeggio sound?
The first frequency is used to get rid of the negative field, which means getting rid of fear and guilt.
The second frequency is used to allow and create a positive change.
The third frequency is considered the frequency of transformation and miracles, as well as DNA repair.
The fourth frequency is the frequency of love and unity.
The fifth frequency is the frequency of intuition and enlightenment.
The sixth frequency is used for spiritual vision and awareness.
Are these frequencies also related to the Chakras?
In addition to the above description of the healing properties that are normally attributed to Solfeggio sounds by many spiritual healers, healing musicians, scientists and researchers, I have personally found that these frequencies also resonate with the first 6 chakras, from the bottom up.
If you already have practical knowledge about the chakras and listen to these healing frequencies, you will feel the vibrations of the first frequency in the first chakra, the vibrations of the second frequency in the second chakra and so on, until you reach your sixth chakra.
So the fifth frequency, for example, also works with your throat chakra and with the problems associated with it.
Considering the above, it is clear to me that people can use the Solfeggio frequencies to balance and “tune” their chakras in a pleasant, fast and quite simple way, just by listening to the sound frequencies.
Since immemorial times throughout history, many studies have shown the effect that musical sounds exert on the human being in his way of acting and expressing his emotions.
Studies have been published in which a post-mortem analysis has been carried out, comparing brains that during their lives were stimulated musically and brains that by distance with civilization in very few opportunities. These comparative studies allowed to find notorious differences.
A macro and microscopic level between the brains of musicians and people who did not like music; the differences are focused specifically on the body that the body presents the study group which makes “definitely the brain absorb the music like a sponge” (Dr. Gottfried Achlaug Beth Israel Medical Center of Boston)
There is a direct relationship between the musical stimulation in the areas of the frontal cerebral cortex and the early development of the coordination of the upper limbs if the stimulation is done before seven (7) years of age. (Dr. Frances Rauscher, University of Wisconsin.)
Recent studies in the psychiatric units of the Universities of Columbia and New York, showed that the stimulation through the uterine tissue with sounds coming from the voice of the parents, alter the fetal heart rate.
The same results were observed when these fetuses were stimulated with music by Vivaldi or Mozart. In the same way, experimentally and in a comparative way, contrary effects have been found to the aforementioned (in this case very unpleasant) if the type of stimulus is made with strident sounds or Rock music. (Report presented by E.J: Mundell – Health Day reporter).
It is known as the intense emotions of a pregnant mother, her mood changes, feelings of happiness and in general all her sensations generate in the fetus a memory depending on the type and amount of excited neurotransmitter. This memory means that in the future any stimulus that releases similar neurotransmitters in equal concentrations will generate pleasant memories, which leads to demonstrating that their sensations and emotions evoked by sound stimulation determine to relive pleasant moments of their intrauterine life.
Canadian studies show how the IQ of children stimulated in an appropriate way with musical sounds and rhythms is positively affected, the well-known Mozart effect, and its increase in the brain areas that have a response related to spatial intelligence.
The sounds and rhythms have always played an important role in the brain stimulation of the listeners, reflected in the learning and communication of the culture between the ethnic groups.
The pleasure of sharing pleasant sounds generates connections between parents and children, between families and between peoples.
To the extent that those sounds and those rhythms surround the environment stimulate the brain properly and early; generating a pleasurable and rewarding response within the learning experience; therefore they will feed the imagination and creativity of the human being, regardless of their social class, creed, religion or political status.
For all the above “Music generates a power that goes beyond words; and that is precisely what is sought in this presentation of music to see and ways to listen “Germán Eduardo Sabogal Sabogal.
Relaxation and music therapy for postoperative pain
Relaxation techniques and music therapy are often used as an aid to management of the discomfort and to balance analgesia and side effects in patients about to undergo surgery.
Sources were used Medline (1982-1995), “Cumulative Index of Nursing” and “Allied Health Literature” (1982-1995) along with “PsychLit” (1971-1995) as a means of finding items that assessed the effects of relaxation and music on postoperative pain.
It also sought in the Journal of Music Therapy “and other books by hand. Effectiveness data were obtained. The studies were classified according to the design (eg randomized, nonrandomized, uncontrolled). No predefined instrument was used in obtaining the data. We performed a descriptive analysis.
Inclusion criteria were: published studies assessing the relaxation and / or music therapy as a treatment of postoperative pain in adults.
In clinical conditions such as surgical stress, and chronic and acute pain, music has proven to be an important therapeutic intervention.
Research has been conducted in Germany and in the framework of the International Society for Music in Medicine, focused on the application of musical stimuli surgical conditions and treatments of pain (Spintge, 1982, Spintge and Drohan, 1987, 1991, Hatano, Oyama , Kogure, Okura and Spintge, 1983).
As referred Spintge under conditions of chronic pain, conscious awareness, self-esteem and subjective feeli
ngs are as impaired as cardiovascular systems and cardiorespiratory regulation, hormonal control and systems information processing motor, sensory and perception.
Considering the disease as a holistic phenomenon that demands a unique approach that includes emotional, psychological, social and biological interventions have been tested non-pharmacological, including olfactory stimuli, optical and acoustic.
In more than 120000 patients, the clinical results showed that it achieved a further reduction of anxiety and pain through the use of music (Spintge, 1999).
According to that author, the therapeutic application of music in multimodal treatment of acute and chronic pain can impact different levels of stress reactions and pain processing.
On the one hand, the author, the influence of music (a very complex stimulus) in consciousness is very powerful compared to other environmental stimuli.
On the other hand, sub cortical centers of pain processing and emotional control such as the limbic system is directly inhibited.
Moreover, the structures of the pain inhibitory descending central nervous system are activated in the way Melzack and Wall (1965, 1976) have described in their adapted version of the “gate control theory” (gate control theory).
In turn, the new concept of neuroplasticity (neuroplasticity) explains the genetic reprogramming of cells in the dorsal nerve root (dorsal root nerve cells) that have been previously sensitized against the entry of pain (Zieglagaensberger, 1998). “.
These concepts force us to reconsider the role of so-called complementary therapies in general, because we found that the genome of nerve cells can be reprogrammed, thereby changing their functional capabilities.
This process was considered impossible a few years ago.Furthermore, the continuous input of a stimulus identical influences this rescheduling”
Another goal of the influence of music on pain perception, it claims Spintge has to do with muscle detonisación musicogénica (music genic detonisation muscle).
The skeletal muscle proprioception influence emotional states and pain perception, and vice versa (Gellhorn, 1964; Roederer, 1985; Simons, 1988).
Let’s talk now about groups of “souls” and human bonds.
Every time she remembers her birth, she is born in “Twin Souls”, but she does not have enough time to do it.
That imprint marks the characteristics of each “soul” or “Divine Spark”.
This means that in addition to the brotherhood there is a vibratory affinity given by the similarity or similarity in the characteristics themselves and that makes some “souls” approach others more than the rest of their sisters.
This approach allows them to do both spiritual and physical things together, helping each other to overcome the karmic problems to be reversed and also to fulfill the spiritual tasks that correspond to them.
Only through a very high level of spiritual union can one begin in a couple that in the human aspect is a physical union but in the spiritual one it is very deep and for all of life.
This is because the spiritual tasks necessary for the whole universe are increasingly greater. In the long term of the innumerable incarnations, there are “souls” that come together in the meetings, a size which is why children are expected to be compelled to compete maximum with others and this is achieved on the human plane through experiences as a couple.
How do we know humanly that we are facing our “soul mate”?
Knowing clearly that we are facing the being or the person we have waited so long during our existence (which includes all lives, not only this one) is something that only our heart will give us, so we should only listen to him … no to our desires, neither shortcomings, nor fears, nor obsessions, etc.
The “twin souls” have the same interests, their attraction is not only physical or sexual and the tenderness occupies their moments and their looks.
That love transcends age, matter, race, creed, distances.
When they see each other, they feel an infinite need to embrace and expand the energies of their hearts.
Both wish to grow spiritually and intellectually, are mutually encouraged by that personal growth, there is no selfishness or individuality among them and they have the desire, though unconscious, to carry out their mission together.
A soul mate can be a member of our family, or a friend and can stay with us for a short period of time, to help us learn or experience something we need to experience, or stay with us for the rest of our life.
That depends on the lesson we must learn and the nature of the connection.
If it is to help each other during this incarnation, it will be for this human life.
Let’s not forget that as Spirits we are united with that group of souls for all eternity although we may achieve greater affinity with some than with others.
Achieved certain evolutionary point we will be able to act together with any of the Spirits at that level since we will have achieved such a development that predominates in us the “Universal Fraternity”.
