There's No Place Like Ohm®
||Listen as the vibrational
pulse of the earth is expressed through the heartbeat and
undulating drone of the Ohm tone. Sampled from the CD, There's
No Place Like Ohm.
(Om, Aum) is an ancient and beautiful symbol with many
stylistic variations. The Sanskrit Om is most widely known.
According to current scientific thought, we know that the vibrational
tone of Om is based on the measured frequency of the Earth’s
elliptical orbit as it travels around the Sun through four
Based on this knowledge, we consider Ohm an Earth tone, and
have replaced the "dot" that traditionally represents
the Maya or transcendence with an image of the Earth. This
stylistic change is intended to visually reflect the Hermetic
axiom, "As Above, So Below."
Historically, Ohm symbolizes birth and death, the waking and
dream states, and our corporal and transcendent selves. Through
time, the ultimate mystery and message of Ohm continues to
be explored. Respectfully, we contribute to the evolution of
this beautiful symbol by including an image of the Earth, our

Because Ohm contains all sound, just as light contains all color, we
think of Ohm as a Source Tone. Ohm is universally considered sacred and
healing, and has been used for thousands of years by cultures throughout
the world. The sound vibration of Ohm is restful and has a calming and
healing effect as it grounds and centers. Because Ohm is omnipresent
in nature and the Ohm tone is of the Earth, it is intrinsically soothing
The Ohm tone is based on the measured frequency of the elliptical orbit
of the earth as it travels around the sun through 4 seasons. Astronomer
and musician Johannes Kepler realized in the seventeenth century that
planets have elliptical orbits. This gave basis for the modern calculation
of planetary orbits, and their associated musical tones or frequencies.
136.10 hz is the numerical representation of the vibrational tone of
The earth’s continuous and steadfast orbit connects us to the
seasons, rhythms and cycles of our planet. When an organism is out of
balance, it becomes weakened and vulnerable. Resonating with Ohm re-connects
us to the earth, which positively affects our biological rhythms and
circadian clock. We begin to sync or “entrain” with natural
cycles, which enables us to find our balance.
What is the Shumann Resonance and how does it differ from Ohm?

Ohm and C Sharp
Ohm exists in the harmonically rich valley
between the diatonic musical notes of C and C sharp. Many people equate
C# with Ohm, however there is subtle yet meaningful difference between
these tones. The Ohm frequency is an alternative or "cosmic" tuning that
predates keyboard or modern western tunings. Ancient cosmic tunings were
based in sounds heard in nature, the rhythms of the earth and the movement
of the cosmos.
