The Value of Music in Life Applications

The Value of Music in Life Applications

I have compiled a list of articles I have found on the internet that have to do with the effects of Music in various areas of life. I will post the list now, and then add to it as time goes on. You can find each of these posts in the “Calming Harp Posts” page. Each of these articles will also be available in the Archives on the post page so you can read them as your time allows. I hope this will be of benefit to you. Feel free to e-mail me with any article you think should be included and if it fits this subject, I will certainly include it in these postings. I would like this to be a collaborative effort. Thanks.

Featured Set: Tabernacle Prayer Book & CD Set


Tabernacle Prayer Book & CD Set

We are happy to announce our newest addition of CD recording as well as an accompanying book. We have been discovering the effects of frequencies in our lives through the articles and postings that have been presented on this website. Our understanding about the frequencies and their origins from Scripture have caused us to take a closer look as to where these frequencies are described and consider the context of the Scriptures surrounding them. In so doing, we have discovered an amazing link between the Solfeggio Frequencies, (we prefer to call them the “Scripture Frequencies”) and the Tabernacle of Moses built by Israel during their wilderness wanderings after they came out of Egypt. It is our belief that these frequencies facilitate our approach to the Living God in worship and prayer. Learn more about the CD and Book set as well as the other music that we offer.
