Centuries ago almost every world culture used the flute for ritual, healing, education and entertainment. One of the most ancient of instruments, its evocative sound was so powerful the Spaniards forbade the indigenous peoples of South America to play it lest it hinder the conquest of their land.
The flute has motivated, inspired and uplifted. It has built community, honored beginnings and endings and sent prayers to the Gods. The combinations of specific notes or frequencies, especially that of the pentatonic (five-note) scale, were cited as being especially powerful. These findings have provided a theoretical basis from which many of today's sound healing and music therapy practices have been devised.
What makes this particular instrument so powerful, so moving? Some say the sound of the flute is closest to that of the human voice, that it bypasses the conscious mind more effectively than other instruments. This factor may account for its popularity and for what is often witnessed as an immediate positive response on mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels. It induces a deep state of relaxation, and the results documented include: a decrease in stress, anxiety, pain, insomnia, and depression, as well as an increase in vitality, clarity and a strengthening of one's connection to the Divine.
