Solfeggio Frequencies: How Listening to 396 Hz Tones Can Soothe Your Anxiety

Solfeggio frequencies are specific tones of sound known to trigger healing processes in the mind and body. They’ve been used for thousands of years as a way to treat both physical and emotional discomfort. If you suffer from anxiety, guilt, and other negative emotions that block your happiness and productivity, tune into sounds at 396 Hertz (Hz).

What Are the Healing Solfeggio Frequencies?

Solfeggio frequencies are nothing new, although they may be seeing a resurgence in popularity. For millennia, people of various cultures have known that specific pitches, or frequencies, of sound can have healing properties.

The historical record shows that the ancient Egyptians used these frequencies to alter their consciousness and heal. Chants in many religions incorporate the solfeggio frequencies, including Medieval Gregorian, ancient Sanskrit, and Buddhist chants.

Modern research on solfeggio frequencies is limited, but a few studies show that they can have healing properties. For instance, 432 Hz sounds slow the heart rate and relax the mind. Meanwhile, 538 Hz tones can actually lower levels of stress hormones in the body.

396 Hz – The Anxiety Relief Frequency

We haven’t yet discovered why these particular frequencies affect the body and brain in ways other sounds don’t. It may be due to a match or balance between the frequencies of these sounds and that of our brainwaves. What we do know is that people have been using solfeggio frequencies for healing for thousands of years.

The 396 Hz frequency may help with letting go of stress. It provides some relief from the negative energy and emotions that you may carry around often, like fear, doubt, and guilt. Many people who use solfeggio frequencies say that the 396 Hz tone turns grief into joy.

This frequency is also thought to be associated with unblocking the root chakra, the energy point at the base of your spine that keeps you stable and grounded. When blocked, the root chakra can make you feel emotionally insecure, worried, and anxious.

Fear and anxiety plague many people. They act as obstacles to taking action, reaching goals, and achieving spiritual self-realization. Tune into the 396 Hz frequency to overcome these feelings, gain self-confidence, and remove barriers to your success, happiness, and inner peace.

How to Benefit From This Solfeggio Frequency

BetterSleep offers all the tones on the solfeggio spectrum, so you can pick and choose the right one for the type of healing you need in the moment.

Unblock your root chakra, get grounded, and release fear and worry by listening to sound mixes with the 396 Hz tone. You can find it among the other solfeggio frequencies and either enjoy it alone or as part of a mix. Alone, it is just one note. Add it to one of your customized soundscapes for a background pitch that soothes, relaxes, and heals.

A great way to benefit from 396 Hz is by using it in your meditations. BetterSleep offers many practices that complement the frequency very well, like Chakra Release and Grounding Meditation for Anxiety. Combining the frequency with your mindfulness practice should provide better results than using either one alone. Let the steadiness of the 396 Hz tone guide you as you meditate on releasing your fear, soothing your stress, and finding peace.
