Imagine visiting loved ones in their home on the Colorado plains during January. Outside the wide windows, deep snow blankets the ground in every direction, the glare of winter sun glinting iridescent off the white surface. Inside, a pot of red chili bubbles on the stove, a deliciously inviting aroma wafting through the house.
As lovely as this sounds, niggling health issues beset even the best efforts to remain calm. First a lingering horrific cough, followed by a sinus infection, then a pulled muscle mixed with ongoing headaches and insomnia. The frigid temps outdoors have crept into the body, threatening to overthrow any chance at joy.
A few of these issues are mentioned during the course of light conversation. Without preamble, the hostess pulls out a CD of her latest find, a set of Wholetones. She pops a disk into the player and within seconds the room is filled with the resonance of a single frequency. Soon joined by soothing melodic companions, that note develops into a tune complete with harmony and rhythm. Cupping the soul like gentle hands, the music eases the anxiety of continuing problems, then instantly transports the listener to another zone —- floating in mineral hot springs, soaking up the rays on a tropical beach, soaring with eagles in flight. All at once a feeling of being more in balance with the universe takes over.
The timelessness of Wholetones works well in any season or situation, the compilations a gift of serenity.
What are Wholetones?
They are part of The Healing Frequency Music Project, which was created to promote positive, healthy change. Developed by Michael S. Tyrell, renowned musician, author and speaker, the musical therapy set consists of seven rediscovered musical tones found to relieve stress, break negative cycles and restore sleep. They are reported to be healing musical tones hidden deep within ancient frequencies.
Each single song has its ability to help heal certain ailments. Taken together they offer a stronger overall sense of peace. As a series, according to Tyrell’s claims, they heal, repair and protect against disease, balance hormones and release endorphins, resulting in faster recovery rates from illness and more profound healing. The frequencies are also purported to soothe postoperative pain, lower blood pressure and boost immunity.
With Wholetones, one can:
- Wipe out unhealthy fears as well as feelings of guilt and shame
- Remove recurring negative cycles
- Discover the master key that precipitates all other frequencies
- Hear the most curious frequency of all, which gives the power to relax
- Enjoy the fostering of peace and forgiveness
- Gain awareness of spirit
- Revel in the frequency that celebrates the King of Kings

Whether it be symphonic, new age, jazz, classic rock, a favorite reel or a lively French ditty, music cures the soul in a way little else can do. Listening to strains that wind through the brain or a beat that gets the heart thumping adds a sense of contented joy to our lives.
A preference toward Bach or The Beatles doesn’t matter. Whenever the pace of the day-to-day grind gets too hectic and sadness takes over, reach for the mellow strains of the blues instead of that comforting little pill. Angry at the steady screech of tires or frustrated by the blaring of your boss as she berates you? Then allow a mainstream melody or a heavenly harmony to be the healthy remedy that soothes the savage beast.
Play a musical instrument but often too busy to practice? Take a few moments to pluck that guitar, tickle those ivories, give a deep resonating breath to that harmonica, trumpet or flute. Beat the bodhran (Irish drum), blow into a didgeridoo, lightly hammer a dulcimer. You’re developing both left and right brain function by learning the language of notes while doing something creative. Invite friends over for a jam session. Play with gusto, even if expertise isn’t on your list of skill sets. Sing out loud. Have fun. Be exuberant.
