Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

At the heart of all lost spiritual and magical traditions was the teaching of the Power of the Word ó the ability to use sound, music, and voice to affect changes in others and in yourself. The relaying of these teachings usually fell to individuals schooled in the natural and spiritual laws of the universe. Now you can learn these secrets in Sacred Sounds by Ted Andrews.

These traditional teachers used the secret arts of sound to instruct, heal, and enlighten. They imbued their words with the power of the imagination and the power of music. Healing, song, and sorcery went hand-in-hand. The myths, stories, poems, and songs bridged the different worlds of life and the different modes of consciousness. And they kept the traditions and esoteric mysteries alive for the people. It is these mysteries and traditions you'll discover in Sacred Sounds.

The book explains how the music of different composers relates to the signs of the zodiac. With this information you will discover how to use this music to enhance the spirit or heal the body. You'll see how different sounds affect the health of different parts of the body, and understand how to use this to heal yourself or others.

If you would like a powerful magical tool that requires nothing more than your voice, you need to get Sacred Sounds.

About the Author

Ted Andrews (1952-2009) was an award-winning author and deeply respected teacher in the metaphysical and spiritual fields. Through his seminars, symposiums, workshops, and lectures, he was committed to making esoteric material comprehensible and practical for everyone.


Ted Andrew's many gifts included clairvoyancy, aura interpretation, past-life analysis, dreams interpretation, numerology, and Tarot. He wrote many books on these subjects, but is best known for his work with animal mysticism and for his bestselling Animal Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great & Small. Certified in basic hypnosis and acupressure, Andrews was also involved in the study and use of herbs as an alternative path in health care, focusing strongly on esoteric forms of healing with sound, music, and voice. In addition to his interest in metaphysics, Ted was a trained pianist and often used the Celtic harp, bamboo flute, shaman rattles, Tibetan bells, Tibetan Singing Bowl, and quartz crystal bowls to create individual healing therapies and induce higher states of consciousness.


Ted Andrews is the author of The Healer's Manual; Animal-Speak, How to See & Read the Aura; Enchantment of the Faerie Realm; Crystal Balls & Crystal Bowls; How to Uncover Your Past Lives; How to Heal with Color; Sacred Sounds; Simplified Qabala Magic; and many other New Age titles.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAME on March 4, 2003
Format: Paperback
This valuable book is divided in two parts. The first is The Secret Power of The Word, in which the author discusses the science of sacred sound with reference to its principle of resonance (sympathetic vibration), the principles of rhythm, melody and harmony, plus qualities like pitch and timbre. The scales and the healing elements of music are investigated - the section on the musical interplay with the Chakras is particularly enlightening. Other fascinating sections are The Occult Significance of Speech and Mystical Words of Power which deals with ritual words and sounds like the Hebrew God-names plus Sanskrit Mantras and chants.

Part Two, the Renaissance of the Bardic Traditions, provides a history of the mystical bards and deals with magical storytelling. It includes a section on musical instruments like the lyre, harp, guitar, keyboard instruments, flute and others. There is also a captivating section on magical poetry with a discussion of forms such as alliteration, repetition, anagrams, assonance, meter, rhythm and rhyme. The book concludes with the chapter Bardic Healing that provides practical techniques for tuning and healing the human body.

There are notes to every chapter, a select bibliography on (a) sound, music and voice and (b) on the Bardic traditions. The illustrations include musical notations, the human

This is the first book I've seen that links music, sound, and spoken word to chakras and healing centers in the body. Just as chakras respond to certain thoughts, and colors, the vibration of certain notes resonate to corresponding chakras. The right combination of sound and tone can be used to aid in spiritual healing. Ted Andrews describes a fascinating history of storytelling and music throughout time, the importance of maintaining oral and musical traditions. Sacred Sounds also covers the important power of words, and what actions they can create. This is a great and informative handbook on music and healing.

This is a very well written book, as Ted Andrew's books are. They provide a great deal of explanation, details, and how-to instructions. This book provides lots of background information on the use of sound, in words and in music and how sound has related to healing for many years, much of which has become a lost art. Ted covers a lot of history, for credibility and for understanding the linear path to nowadays.

If you think it is not logical that sounds can affect you, ask yourself how you feel when you listen to certain types of music. Try it. Does some music make you angry, some sad, some peaceful, and does some music make you feel love? How about words? Is there a word someone could call you to make your blood boil? Is there something nice someone said to you recently that made you feel like you could just melt? That's just to get you thinking. Now what if someone told you that you could maybe begin to reverse a health problem by playing a note that corresponds the the chakra area that has an energy blockage? Bull??? Worth a try?

Ted goes all the way into details of 10 names of God from the Qabala and how to tone them properly. He explains which music notes influence and balance which chakras and a whole lot more. After reading this book, I now understand what is happening with my voice and why. There is a lot of metaphysical information found in this book as it relates to the use of sound that you will not normally find just anywhere. If you're looking for that kind of information, get the book.

If you are interested in how animals might have messages for you, check out "Animal Speak" by Ted. I have also read several other books of his on the topics of angels and spirit guides, colors, and auras. They are all well written and provide a lot of information.

Ted Andrews is a kind of person that leaves you with a feeling that whatever he does he does well. This also holds true for this book. It is a well structured and easy to read book for understanding the importance of sound in our daily lives. We are also reminded in the storytelling section that the words of the songs that we frequently listen can have a great subconscious impact on our feelings and emotions.

This is a wonderful short history of the healing practices of sound, song and language. In our world of constant manufactured noise, we need to remember the sacred nature of sound and its healing properties. A very informative and uplifting book. Empower yourself with this ancient knowledge!
