Does prayer really work?

There are many people in this world who do not believe in the power of prayer.

It is a fact that since ancient times, humans have been changing phenomena in the physical dimension through the power of prayer in various cultures and religions (regardless of whether it has been observed or not).

Naturally, prayer rituals also exist in our home country of Japan, and they are by no means a thing of the past; Shinto-style prayer rituals are still continued as a nation today.

Japanese language and spirits

When you think of Shinto prayers, do you mean Norito?

I have also had the blessings given at Ise Grand Shrine, and the unique sounds and Japanese language give a sense of ritual and history.

Is that a fancy way of saying it?

Even though it’s a prayer, wouldn’t it be okay to just say it normally?

You might think that.

Of course, in modern times, in addition to the cultural aspect, there is also the aspect of ritual performance.

However, there is a reason why the sounds, phrases, and readings of the Norito have a unique atmosphere, and we cannot talk about them without avoiding the sounds of the Japanese language and the presence of Kotodama.

language passband

Do you know what a language passband is?

Each language has a frequency range in which speakers vibrate their vocal cords, but Japanese is characterized by a very narrow frequency range.

Japanese sounds only range from 125 hertz to 1500 hertz.

Looking at this diagram, you can understand why Japanese people can’t speak or understand English no matter how long they use it.

It’s surprising that French is so narrow, but Japanese people actually find it easy to imitate French, which has a long and narrow image.

As a musician, I believe that the sound for the transition of dimensions that Shinto communicates with the divine world is in the Japanese words, and that it is this language pass band that moves as a soul across dimensions. I imagine that it is also related.

Does it only work in Japanese?

Prayers and rituals are not limited to Shinto.

It has been practiced in various forms and styles all over the world throughout the ages.

However, isn’t the Japanese word kotodama special here as well? It may make you think.

This means that prayers in languages other than Japanese often have coined words or are set to music and set to a melody.

For example, the same goes for Christianity’s Amen.

This word originally comes from the Hebrew word ahman (truly, truly).

In addition to Mass, prayers were delivered to melodies in the world of Greek music, which is said to still be directly connected to the world of the gods.

Doesn’t this suggest that the frequency of the words themselves is very important? This is my hypothesis as a musician.

As a musician, I can say this with confidence that prayers can be more easily delivered through music created by musicians who feel the frequencies of the spiritual world and the place where sound and dimension intersect from an artistic perspective.

Sounds also indicated in Buddhism

When Buddhism entered Japan during the Heian period, a set of musical scores called neumafu was imported for the sutras of the Shingon and Tendai sects.

This means that the sounds and frequencies necessary for chanting sutras are specified.

Of course, even in Tibetan Esoteric Buddhism, chanting sutras at a religion’s own frequency is a matter of course.

Considering the above, it is easy to understand that in ancient Buddhism, ritual tools such as singing balls and tinsha were used as tuners for neumatic notation.

Nohgaku’s path from the afterlife

Nohgaku is the original Japanese healing music.

Various studies have suggested that Nohgaku has acoustic effects that soothe people, but when considering the cultural background, it is clearly expressed that sound exists to materialize the frequencies of the other world.

On the Noh stage, each of the four metsuke pillars has a name: the corner pillar, the waki pillar, the fue pillar, and the shite pillar.This path is described as the path from the other world to this world.

In other words, what is on stage is this world, a material dimension.

Behind the curtain is the other world, and God and the beings of hell appear in this world through the same path.

In other words, it is classified as a non-physical dimension.

In other words, the four-dimensional world is what we would call a stage wing in Nohgaku.

Sound exists when these things materialize in this world, but there is no doubt that they exist for the purpose of materialization.

In the world of Nohgaku, they cannot appear in this world without sound.

In fact, the roots of Nohgaku cannot be discussed without the presence of Buddha.

It is said that before Shakyamuni Buddha’s sermon, there were rituals such as singing and dancing, and the sermon began after the place had been purified and prepared.

This is said to have been written in one of Zeami’s letters, so the very fact that Zeami mentions this fact shows that there is a deep relationship between the worldview of primitive Buddhism and Nohgaku.

Collective prayer changes the weather

It seems that an experiment was conducted in which the weather changed by praying in a group.

In ancient times, the power of prayer was used to change and cure even the weather and illnesses.

From a quantum physical perspective, the weather changed because of prayer, and the weather did not change because I prayed, but because my illness was cured, prayer was there, and I was cured because I prayed. Not.

If you look at it from a physical perspective bound by the concept of time, it means that you were cured because you prayed.

Since the former time axis is valid as a physical phenomenon, it can be said that changes in the weather and healing of diseases are caused by prayer.

In other words, we can conclude that the power of prayer is effective.

And when you look at it from a physical perspective, the presence of sound becomes effective.

The original religious concept of sound and music is that the existence of sound transcends the dimensions of the time axis of past, present, and future, and the relationship between observation and cause expands infinitely.

That is why, no matter which perspective you look at or which perspective you place more emphasis on, you must not neglect the divine realm of “sound.”

Ultimately, it becomes elementary particles, becomes light, and becomes the key to transcending the material dimension, and becomes the doorway.

Today’s discussion was about Kotodama.
