The limitations of the everyday state of consciousness are due to the grossness of man’s senses, and his reliance on them alone to discern reality. Plato

The most widely used mode of sound vibration that we all share is speech and writing, relying on the senses for their communication. This includes mental chatter or the monkey mind — the babble of thoughts that dominates our everyday mental landscapes.

This Mode of sound and communication uses the noun, the basic building block of objectification, of making living processes into ‘things’.  In our everyday speech and words, we use nouns like computers use 0 and 1 as their basic code of communication.

This is all a vibrational frequency, and this code of 0 and 1 now dominates our lives in almost everything we do, influencing our way of communicating: our own vibrational frequency. Our speech and words are becoming the binary duality of computer code, the 0 and 1, where everything is seen as good and bad, right or wrong. Switch on and switch off.

Speech is one of our most powerful tools. Speech and language can be used as a gateway into quantum realms or it can imprison one into the world of the senses and the static 3D world of objects, particles and things. When we are limited to the world of 0 and 1 data, when our words and thoughts come from the senses and their inputs alone, we confine our range of expression and feelings to the senses only.

We forget the world of our inner senses, our feelings, our intuition, our inner worlds; we rely purely on data from the world, our conditioning and society, to sense and know ourselves, others and the world. Like computers.

The words and speech that derive from this purely sense driven, 3D viewpoint varies from place to place, culture to culture. It is a literal Tower of Babel – a smorgasbord of over 5,000 different tongues, dialects, vernaculars and slangs that differs from one country to another, and even one part of a country to another.

This cacophony and jabber of different languages means we cannot really understand each other, and sometimes can barely even understand another who is speaking the same language! For example, someone from London speaking “the Queens English” would hardly understand the slang of someone from the North of England, (just a few hundred miles away) with its inflected accents and burrs. Similarly a Mississippi drawl can hardly be deciphered by an urban New Yorker.

The word ‘jabber’ itself comes from the time when the British invaded India in the nineteenth century. In a remote outpost in the Rajasthan desert, a Tantric school was practicing the Maheshwara Sutra, one of the key Sanskrit texts on sound.

Twenty or more initiates were chanting the Sanskrit sounds at different timings to produce an incantatory, entrancing effect as British officers stormed in. They were amazed to hear what sounded to them like a cacophony, a babble of sound, many voices rumbling Sanskrit in many ways.

As the story goes, the phrase they heard was “jabagadadash” {Sanskrit syllables for the five senses of hearing, seeing, tasting, touching and smelling} and from this the modern term ”jabber” arose. These cascades of thoughts and streams of mental noise are like a radio constantly babbling in the background of our minds, unless it is connected to that which lies beyond the senses: a more internal sense of yourself independent of what you hear, see, taste, touch and smell.

From here, we can use words and speech in an elevated way. As the Sufi Master Hazrat Inayat Khan said, ‘Every person, from morning till evening, is making invisible forms in space by what they say. He is creating invisible vibrations around him, and so he is creating an atmosphere.’’[1]

This Spirit of words, known as Kotodama in Japan and Vak in Sanskrit, has a powerful effect on our realities. Words can hurt, inspire, enlighten and destroy. They have a measurable effect on all we do, and form what we think, in turn creating the foundation of our cultures, media and society.

Each word carries an energetic frequency that people react to in unconscious ways based on their associations with it, often from childhood. Words exist inside words and combine to imply the combined meaning of the words on a subliminal level.

The subliminal messages delivered by words are subconsciously impactful, for letters create words, words create thoughts, thoughts create beliefs and guide our actions and emotional states. Thoughts form ideas, and ideas shape the world we live in. All of this is guided by words.  

In sacred languages, words are understood to construct and weave together the matrix of time-space itself. All of creation is seen as made of words, of currents of sound and mantra that interconnect all life through streams of sound vibration.

The matrix of time and space is constructed of sounds. Upon his enlightenment, the Buddha saw a web of Sanskrit letters glowing in a golden tree stretching from heaven to earth. Similarly, sages in India, Egypt and Tibet use word meditations in different parts of the body and chakras to align to and eventually transcend the matrix of time-space.

In the West, Kabalists use word and letter meditations based on Hebrew codes, where each letter has a number. These letters have been shown by Stan Tenen to arise out of the torus or quantum spiral of creation. Expanding on this, Lynn-Claire Dennis of Mereon has shown that all sounds and frequencies arise out of this torus spiral, when viewed at different angles.

These words have a living, vibrating quality to them. Sound, word and meaning are one in sacred languages such as Sanskrit and Native American, as opposed to languages like English where meaning is derived from association, i.e what we have been taught a word means. 

For example, you could understand Sanskrit without having to learn it if you were still enough to feel the vibration of it. Each word forms a whole “holographic pulse,” transmitting the whole principle one is sharing in a single moment. One word in Sanskrit can take several paragraphs to translate into English, as its essence is multi dimensional, not limited to the 3rd dimension.

This is why Sanskrit is used so extensively in spiritual practices such as mantra and group kirtan, as it very effectively uplifts your state of consciousness quickly as hundreds of millions of people worldwide experience every day. You deeply understand it, beyond the mind, because you feel it. It cuts out the middle man of the rational mind, going into the deep structures of the brain and nervous system.   

We directly resonate to the sacred languages, such as Sanskrit and Aramaic, because they are the roots of most present day languages. They resonate with us on a primordial feeling level, whereas modern day languages resonate with the surface layers of our conditioned awareness. [2]

Using words without a higher consciousness can bind one up in confusion, and can be used to manipulate whole populations, as has been done for thousands of years. Yet words can also be a vehicle that transports one into higher dimensions.

For example, when we are born into this world we are without any recognizable cognitive functions and are unable to distinguish the different objects in our environment. As our minds develop, our cognitive function becomes stronger, primarily through the vehicle of words and speech. We create names for objects and so we are able to distinguish them.

We need words to order and discern our world. The problem then is that this function can take over and guide our whole life, labelling everything, categorising everyone, putting everything into a box. Our entire system of self-identity becomes built upon this structure that categorizes and divides everything into separate forms, including our own identity.[3]

This accumulation of associations in words then constitutes our body of knowledge and our sense of self. Who we think we are is based on an infra structure of words, names and meanings on a deeply subconscious and formative level from our earliest years.
