Experience the power of sound to help you access universal consciousness. Join Karen Newell and Eben Alexander, with special guest Larry Dossey, for the live, interactive video course, “Revelations from Near Death Experiences: How to Access Universal Consciousness.” The course includes three brain entrainment audio recordings from Sacred Acoustics. This 5-session course starts June 2. Learn more here.
For as long as I can remember I have been curious about the truth of humanity’s ancient past. Where did we come from? Why are we here? What is our purpose? This led to a life-long insatiable practice of reading whatever I could find on the subject, in hopes of finding answers to these universal questions.
This search proved challenging as most historical records seemed to fall short. This is especially true when reading about the remains of sacred sites located throughout the planet. Standard explanations that enormous pyramids were “burial chambers” made no sense. It seemed every unexplainable relic was relegated to the purpose of primitive rituals.
It became clear that our authorities were not necessarily offering valid explanations of our past. The same was true when contemplating the texts of various religious and spiritual traditions. Many organizations claimed to offer the one true answer we should blindly trust, but conflicting dogma led to my general rejection of religion.
When conventional sources fell short, I turned to more obscure resources, including esoteric writings. Extensive reading exposed me to texts indicating that we have not necessarily advanced in our science and technology, but that we have actually lost knowledge and abilities held by ancient civilizations.
In our current time, there are people who have natural skills that allow them to access states of awareness beyond the here and now. Often in these states, sage wisdom becomes available, miraculous healing takes place, ideas for inventions come through or future events are predicted.
While some people are simply born with such abilities, others come by them through injury or disease. Still others are completely healthy and develop skills consciously for a specific purpose. This became my quest. I sought to learn methods of sensing energy, communicating with spirit guides and of finding out firsthand what is beyond our physical observations.
A wide variety of workshops and courses led me to discover the value of meditation and personal experience. I had to master the ability of getting quiet inside in order to move forward. My attempts to practice meditation were challenging. It was difficult to maintain the necessary stillness for any length of time as mind chatter and restlessness commanded my attention.
I discovered that listening to certain sounds helped in settling these constant thoughts, allowing me to reach deeper and more expanded states of awareness. I learned the importance of heart awareness and the powerful energy field around each of us that can be harnessed in different ways.
As I experimented with the effects of different sounds, I enjoyed crystal and brass bowls, vocal toning, tuning forks and gongs. I eventually discovered that brainwave entrainment technology, utilizing digital frequencies in the form of binaural beats, was especially powerful and effective. I began to get the answers I sought.
While exploring the available options, I met Kevin Kossi, a mechanical engineer and psychoacoustics researcher with a drive to create technology more advanced than what was then commercially available. Together, we began to experiment with varying acoustic frequencies in order to find the most powerful.
By combining monaural beats (rhythmic pulsations, from a drum beat to vocal chants) with binaural beats (differential signaling from two dissimilar tones) using strict harmonic principles, a technology emerged that provided far more powerful effects than either of us had experienced.
We developed a regular habit of creating custom sound journeys for personal explorations. In November 2011, we encountered Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon and later author of Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heaven, who joined us in this regular practice. From there, Sacred Acoustics was formed.
My fascination with sacred sites and recovering ancient wisdom was one of several early driving forces in our creations. As we searched for inspiration for our recordings, we discovered researchers had measured certain frequency ranges at sacred sites, apparently intentional and man-made.
There is a wealth of evidence that ancient humanity was very advanced technologically and well aware of the power of sound and its supportive role in accessing non-local states of consciousness. We are collectively in the midst of remembering who we truly are.
The purpose of providing these audio tools to others is to support a path for connecting with one’s higher nature. The ability to manage one’s thoughts and emotions more objectively leads to greater awareness of the body’s subtle energy field, centered in the heart.
Merging that awareness with the tones included within Sacred Acoustics recordings allows for alignment with the part of us that is beyond the physical body. With focused intention, it becomes possible to know oneself at a deeper conscious level. We begin to experience that “unseen” part of ourselves in unique ways.
It is not necessary to believe everything you read and hear about from others, it is possible to develop a knowing deep inside, found through personal experience. As each of us becomes more aligned with our greater nature, we affect those around us and create a better world.
