Today it seems to be very trendy the idea that inside the music, whatever it is, there is some sort of “hidden message”. They talk about conspiracies and tuning systems. Specifically, they want to emphasize how modern tuning of musical instruments is done through the reference note A at 440Hz and no longer the A 432Hz.
I would like to try to address this topic by giving a different point of view, related to what I call Inborn Voice, our native vibration. There is no doubt that listening to “suitable” music can stimulate some emotional states in humans, animals and indeed plants. There exist music suitable for sleep, such as lullaby, for meditation, but also to promote athletic performance and even for aggressiveness. Every state of consciousness can be influenced in some way by music. This effect has been known for centuries and is a resonance one. Listening to a slow rhythm music, one induces a slowing down of everything, then a state of relaxation, listening to upbeat music, one stimulates the movement, the action. As I said, it’s a resonance. Resonance is a phenomenon related to frequency, I explained it very well in my book “The Way of the Voice“.
Few people are aware that the opposite phenomenon is also true. In fact, resonance is a reflexive phenomenon. That is, if you want to remain quiet, if you want to get to sleep, a lively music will bother you and you will cover your ears. Vice versa, if you impose yourself to be punchy, you prepare yourself for a competitive performance, a melodious music will give you on your nerves. That’s because everything in the universe resonates. If we leave a guitar or a piano immersed in a concert hall, these instruments will start to resonate, to vibrate, without anyone touching them or playing them.
It should not be forgotten that even the rhythm of a music is a frequency, clearly much lower than that of the music notes. In fact, if a musical note vibrates hundreds of times per second, the rhythm of a music vibrates a hundred times per minute. A big difference!
Everything around us, even what appears to be solid rock, is matter in vibration. Everything that exists, even what cannot be seen, is matter in vibration. Quantum physics clearly explains why. So the human being is composed of matter in vibration, the earth on which we live is matter in vibration. Now why should we worry about the vibration of a music that we listen to when we are immersed in a world of vibrations? Is an external vibration able to alter something of the human being? If the instruments are tuned to 440 or 432Hz do things change? All interesting questions, and of course things change, but not as much as you think. A melodious music will remain a melodious music, a lively music will remain a lively music.
The important thing to note is another. An incontrovertible fact. The musical rhythm is accelerating. The melodies of the 19th century are slower than those of the 20th. The same applies to those of the new millennium and those of recent years. The rhythm, the cadence is always higher.
This phenomenon is much more interesting and evident than the one related to tuning, yet few people talk about it.
Now I will try to make a rather complex speech that takes into account biology and quantum physics, to make it clear that if there is something that perceives or undergoes a vibration, it is not the brain. I argue that our vibration-sensitive part is our Inborn Voice. If you’re interested in more in-depth discussion, you’ll find a reading of my book “The Way of the Voice”, which is extremely interesting.
Often those who speak of these conspiracy theories indicate the idea that the human brain is a kind of biological machine that operates on the basis of “electromagnetic waves”, often bringing the electroencephalograms to support. Since music is also an electromagnetic wave, here’s the story. The argument itself is not wrong, in fact the human brain operates through electric currents and it is normal that these currents create magnetic fields that can be captured and interpreted as “waves”. But this is quite different from the claim that our brain operates through electromagnetic waves. Reality is quite different.
The electromagnetic waves that occur are a consequence of its operation, not its mode of operation. It is not clear at which level our brain operates, probably at quantum level, unitary, but now is not the time to clarify it.
Our neurons don’t operate by modulating an electrical signal, creating “waves”. They are much more like an electric light bulb. That is, they have a “on” and a “off” state. What they produce, from a technical point of view, is called a “square wave”. It is fascinating to know that the square wave is defined as containing “all the existing harmonics”. It is something similar to computer electronics. Zero and One. Just to make you better understand, if a plug stings our finger, the neuron of our nervous system can transmit the information to the brain only by communicating “on- something causes a stimulus”. You may wonder, then, how does it communicate to the brain when a plug is not very painful and when it is very painful? Simple, by varying the frequency with which it is turned on/off. If the pain is little it will send an intermittent signal, for example one per second, if the pain is strong 100 signals per second. So our brain is also a sort of “resonator”. If one signal arrives per second maybe it doesn’t even consider the pain, if 100 arrive per second, it will immediately take action to avoid it.
Understanding that the brain does not operate on the basis of electromagnetic waves, but is composed of matter which therefore itself vibrates, the effect of an external vibration will not be so different from the one present in the rest of our body.
At this point we must also understand how resonance works. If it is true that all that exists is matter in vibration, how can resonance work? Let’s try to explain it with an example. If I am a crystal glass, because I am composed of matter, I always and continuously vibrate. The fact that the human being does not perceive it does not mean that it is not true. Now if I put the glass on a table that in turn is composed of matter in vibration, what happens?. Since the two materials are in contact, they should influence each other. Probably this happens, but the forces expressed by the individual atoms are so low that nothing changes. If someone pulls a punch on the table, it will transmit the force received to everything that is in contact, then also the floor and the glass. Looking closely, we would see the glass moving imperceptibly. If someone drummed on the table, creating a frequency, we would see the glass vibrate more steadily. If the frequency with which the table is drummed is in sync with the one with which the glass resonates, it will amplify and even destroy the integrity of the glass itself. If it is not in sync, it will disperse.
So far it is clear that for there to be an effect between two vibrations, that of drumming and that of the glass, a force must be of a certain magnitude.
If in the same situation as before, we introduce a second drumming, much stronger and more intense than the first, which of the two will tweak the glass? Clearly to both, but the strongest will be the master. So when we talk about resonance, we are talking about the law of the strongest. Today, headphones with “cancellation” of noise are in vogue. They do nothing but reproduce a sound that is “opposite” to what we are listening to. The sound wave of “noise” and that of “cancellation” add up and in fact we are no longer able to listen to anything. Two opposite sounds are not perceptible to us, and yet they both exist. Now that you have a slight idea of how a resonance works, we can go further.
The human being has always carried within himself the concept of vibration, even before this word existed. As I explain in my book the easiest way to define a vibration, when the word vibration did not exist, was to refer to the voice. We always talk about voice, words, silence and sound. So it is evident that something inside of us actually vibrates, or rather, wants to vibrate. What is it? Our Inborn Voice. Each of us has a different, unique one. There are no two of them that are the same. People simply forget to listen to their Inborn Voice and prefer to listen to the vibrations that come from outside, simply by ignoring it. They ignore it so well and for so long that they forget they have it, and then fall victim to the vibrations of others, like empty glasses.
The choice, the word “choice” is the key. The choice that most people take is to ignore and not listen to their Inborn Voice, turning from a musical instrument that can bring their music in the world, into a resonator, ready to vibrate on the music imposed by others. Each of us can go back to listening and making others play our own inborn voice, just do an act of will.
Now you can understand why when so many people are together many amazing things happen, sometimes deplorable, but still of great magnitude.
For example, if a group of people decide to pray all together, the sum of their individual vibrations amplifies the outcome and it will influence even those who are not praying, leading to the reduction of crime in a fairly large area. In practice, all the people who don’t listen to their Inborn Voice, will start to resonate on a vibration of peace.
The same thing happens when you put together so many “angry” or “frustrated” people, even if they are not praying, but simply demonstrating or protesting, their dominant vibration of anger and frustration is amplified by going to create real human monsters in someone of the crowd.
The interesting thing is that this doesn’t always happen. When so many people are all together, each one intent on developing its own selfishness, the amplification effect does not trigger. In fact, in this case, the vibrations that are added together do not manage to overwhelm the general background noise present. Selfishness is not a vibration suitable for man.
So from this point of view it is much more interesting to go and see, in addition to the continuous growth of the musical rhythm, also the increasing use of technologies put us in silence, both verbally and cerebrally.
If you are interested in the subject or you want more details about my work and your Inborn Voice, you can leave a comment or buy my book.
Of course, it’s not often John Lennon and Mick Jagger have met in person. What’s even rarer is that they met in person in their elegant clothes!
Mylena is in New York preparing for her Workshop that will run on November the 10th and she’s guest in a beautify Penthouse. In this Video Mylena will tour you inside the Lennon-Jagger Penthouse in New York City.

again guys another experience
in this New York experience
of the premiere of my book “The wat of the Voice”
right now I’m in a wonderful penthouse
the second one in my experience
I have a beautiful photograph behind me.
of John Lennon and Mick Jagger in this penthouse
and I will show you the wonder I see from here
We’re looking at the whole city.
in this penthouse there will be a particular meeting
this particular meeting will obviously be a seminar of study
Communication Skills for a master
degree in which I will be the teacher
as Italian excellence
in this wonderful location
we will talk about voice
how important the voice is
but especially how much Inborn Voice
has an increasingly significant impact
will obviously be a
almost private class
as they say
I am very proud and above all
I really wanted to share it with you.
and those who follow me with those who believe in dreams
it is possible to realize them with a lot of
determination and with your

Sometimes resonances also occur in the silence of the ether. Curious how a social network like LinkedIn can prove once again that “there are no accidents” by creating a “magic”.
My followers know that I have many projects in preparation, including a new Youtube channel. “Time” is the only scarce resource for those who work on their own, for every “freelancer”. The goal of every good freelancer must be to be able to forge an intimate, firm and lasting relationship with good customers and not simply gain new clients. He/she must strive to get more serenity and “free time” for him/herself. It seems like a play on words but it’s a reality that most people are understanding.
Sometimes we work so hard to produce such small results, but if you stop and listen, our Inborn Voice often speaks to us. And it speaks to us about decisions, choices, problems that involve us at that very moment. I’ll put you below the interview Mylena Vocal Coach gave to Barbara Reverberi for the PodCast News for Freelancer.
Here’s the transcript of the entire video:
Hello welcome or welcome back to news for freelance.
This is the podcast dedicated to our life, I’m not going to linger long, I know that many of you already listen to me since a long time, others do it while they do pilates, rather than other activities and this is the magic of podcasting!
So thank you for being here and thank you for the comments and feedback you’ll give me. You know they are always welcome for a constant improvement and especially to identify the issues that are most interesting for you and that we can share.
Before introducing today’s guest, a very interesting guest, in line with my research on the voice in particular on the improvement of our vocality, “in a broader sense”. This is a bit the message, it is the legacy of the podcasting festival that was just last Saturday at the talent garden: an extraordinary event.
I would like to give you a report of this too, it left me a lot especially because I met many people, many enthusiasts and emerging podcasters. We were over 150 and I must say that it was nice to listen to meet, talk and share.
I also thank Giulio Gaudiano, who was a bit the forerunner, the one who encouraged me to start with his book, and I also thank Andrea Ciraulo because, really, with his very calm voice is very interesting.
So let’s return to the theme of voice but before doing so I remind you that I’m Barbara Reverberi I’m a journalist I deal with media relations and digital PR
Why all this freelance stuff?
Because this is my passion, but because this is my life. It’s my life! I’ve been freelancing for over seven years. after a first period of solitary freelance I realized that maybe it was better not running alone, so I decided to share this experience with a colleague Moira Perruso and then setting up “MOBA Comunicazione” and then to create Freelance Network Italia.
This is a large group of professionals in communication and digital media. Freelance Network presents itself to us al: we collaborate and present ourselves to the customer in a modular formula so we try to meet their needs in an agile way. here are a little of the news about the free lance network that is growing We formed as an association in June, if you want more information look for the freelance network Italy group, now open to everybody, and if you like what happens within this group what we share that are experience. Sometimes we even share discounts that we can get from other partners, but above all we really share news and everything that is useful to our training for our improvement.
Useful for our improvement!
So I come straight away to tell you about today’s guest Today’s guest impressed me! I read an interview dedicated to her by Roselina Salemi in the magazine ELLE some time ago I did a post on linkedin dedicated to the voice and I must say that this post has really engaged because many are interested in the voice system. I say system because it is really a complex area of interest.
Milena Origgi, also known as Mylena Vocal Coach is really an expert of the voice and run and followed several activities. She run several conferences and workshops but the extraordinary thing is that I liked her story because she started from Busto Arsizio! She initially worked mainly on Milan and then she grew so much to reach Boston where she now lives since 5 years and her project is becoming even bigger than that.
Her project is to bring the method she created called Inborn Voice around the world. the starting point is beautiful in my opinion: the voice identifies us and when we will find our originary voice, our Inborn Voice, we will have really grasped the essence of our existence and we will be able to transmit it to others.
So starting from the voice the improvement will reach and benefit our entire life! I’ll leave you really soon to Milena but I take this opportunity to bring your attention to three focal points that she will touch the first point is the originality, the second is listening to our voice but also the voice of others and sometimes I would say especially the voice of others just to enter into a relationship and create healthy relationships with the customer because this help us to work better and finally love our voice. beautiful: to love our voice! I have a question for you all. How many of you have recorded a vocal note, have listened to it again and have not loved the voice?
This is a good awareness point. This happened to me and for this reason I’m studying and working a lot on my voice from here we start also for a more extensive improvement of our very existence starting from the fact that the voice is what makes us immediately recognizable identifiable
Try to do an experiment if you were in a large room and began to speak without being seen maybe someone who knows you would identify you immediately and this I think is already extraordinary in itself
So love your own voice to improve not only our voice but ourselves! and now leave you to Milena Origgi
Hello to all news for freelance listeners following Barbara and her podcasts I am Milena Origgi, also known as Mylena Vocal Coach or the Voice Guru
My life is a real roller coaster!
I am originally from Busto Arsizio and currently live in the United States precisely in the elegant city of Boston I moved about five years ago to respond to the needs of my American customers and to further spread my method Inborn Voice in this great country
I immediately agreed to be interviewed for the podcast because this is a topic very important to me and I love to share my international experience As all of you, I have started my company from scratch by making it grow first in Milan, then throughout Italy, I opened my second studio in London, then my third in Boston and the upcoming project I’m working on are New York and Los Angeles
For more than 30 years I’ve been dealing with the voice of people, to professional voice training at 360 degrees with the method Inborn Voice and I invite you to dig a little deeper by reading my website www.inbornvoice.com or my latest book “The Way of the Voice”
The results of my work have spread so quickly and well beyond the Italian borders This unexpectedly led me to become a pioneer of online lessons and today my customers range from Hawaii islands to Hong Kong
Maybe you do not know but there are thirteen different time zones between these two extremes of the planet! So it became necessary for me to live and work in a time zone that was more central to these requirements The east coast of the United States is the perfect place!
Luckily for me more and more people understand the importance of the voice in modern interpersonal communication the famous “networking” especially in the working field and in the world of politics.
Every day so, with joy and passion, I spread my experience to managers, entrepreneurs, actors, dubbers, youtubers and clearly many freelancers! But I also love working with ordinary people, especially mothers, couples and teenagers.
Summing up all this presentation, I can say that: “What’s my secret?” Obviously the voice!
We are freelancers, for us the voice matters a great deal as for all other people but perhaps for us who must make us recognizable that we must be appreciated because we must know how to “sell” what we are the voice matters even more I want to ask you how someone can begins to train the voice?
Dear Barbara, how do we start?
With an act of will!
It is essential to recognize when our voice has some difficulty and not only “recognize,” but also to “feel” that there is a difficulty because it is from there that you start from there that you choose to do an act of will and start to discover a new land and start to cultivate your voice
Milena, The second question for you is this one: is there a way in which we can better present ourselves or better present our project to a customer How to to speak the truth during a presentation?
Voice is our most powerful business card, even powerful than a designer dress! I created the Inborn Voice method precisely because it is fundamental to “find your voice”, find your own way in this world. Too often we are confused and we mistake one of our personalities, built during our life experience, for our true identity. The fulcrum of all my work is linked to this concept, that’s why I have written the book “The way of the Voice” and my most exclusive workshop is called “Your Voice, Your Identity”.
The best way is to start looking for our true identity so that it can reflect very well what we are saying to avoid to “sell” to our customers a personality that does not correspond to us and therefore does not reflect our passion undermining the trust and credibility in front of our clients.
Can you also give us three tips to improve your voice?
I will have in many more to give!
Above all not to copy others for example looking at videos, learning generic notions and so on this makes us “standard” our originality is dispersed and we have a lot more to offer!
Second: to take a pause to listen at the harmony between our voice and the one of the client clearly during a negotiation you have no idea how much a good training affect this point.
This point alone streamlines your and my work time
I give you a simple example a freelance client of mine went from staying awake until midnight every single night to prepare the strategy to “propose” to the client to going to bed at ten after watching a movie with his family
Inborn Voice does not add burden does not add new things to know, but removes and lightens giving fast and lasting results
Third and final advice: start listening and loving your own voice so that you can hear and highlight the weak points without hiding them from yourself
Why this? Every weak point is fertile ground for your fears your uncertainties and as Simona Ventura says, these fears reach directly in the belly and can undermine the success of a job to which you have dedicated yourself for a long time.
Do you know that even a few “humming” like our “mhm”, our “but” have much value in the success of a sale?
The stats I have highlighted in thirty years of experience is almost the loss of the sale of 70 percent
Confidence gushes out in a firm and present voice that will always give you the result you expected.
You have written several books the last one, “The way of the voice” and you recognize that identity is fundamental for our voice or vice versa voice is the key to give emphasis to our identity I know that there will be a great event of yours in Milan and I would be glad if you could talk about it a little so I can leave a link in the post that will follow this podcast
Dear Barbara, of course! “Your voice, Your identity”, the identity and the voice are indissolubly linked
There will be this event, in Milan and it will be a workshop!
It ‘s my flagship one, after so many years of hard work, dedication, not always easy, I guarantee you We finally reached the thirteenth edition that will be the one in Milan
The tour began in Los Angeles, touches New York, London, Paris and last stage of 2019 will be my beloved Milan
Then I will devote myself to the following dates in 2020
What is this event all about? It is a real workshop so you will receive some brief notion and soon after we will start to reach, awaken, activate the maximum expression of your identity through the multiple potential of your Inborn Voice. I love it!
You will be the protagonists of the day and I will be your guide who will respect, free and embellish, your incredible communication tool, your voice.
You will stop using that voice that lies event to yourself and does not represent you You will remove vocal blocks, energy and physiological ones, for some is a beautiful experience in which their most hidden essence awakens
Clear examples of the feelings that you will experience can be summed up topical moments of these movies
The first is Harry Potter: imagine yourself in front of the door full of hundreds of locks that with a single key, which I call Inborn Voice, opens magically and reveals the philosopher’s stone: the treasure!
Then we also have Dead Poets Society its intensity I will make you live the same intensity.
The last film love very much and that I’ve seen hundreds of times is Eat, pray and love. when Julia Roberts summarizes the journey to find herself, the real herself, in a significant sentence: If you’re brave enough to set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you
This is what you will live at the workshop in Milan an experience closely related to your voice, your communication but the beauty of human expression that I defend every day with great passion and confidence
A greeting to all, thanks for listening a greeting to you Barbara and good freelancing!
Well dear friends who listen to me dear friends freelance have noticed the difference between my voice the voice of Milena? considerable! I have so much to work you perceive how my voice still needs to be educated and so I’m just happy to have met Milena on my way happy because in fact responded to my appeal with enthusiasm after that post on LinkedIn
So it comes to me to say how useful are the social networks when they are used with common sense and criterion even for a personal project on the other hand I thank Milena for this pill of her suggestions that are definitely useful for us to help us freelancer that we want to change the way we see the world of work with greater freedom of choice and therefore what’s better than an Inborn Voice, the one that identifies us and that we have lost over the years because of the imprinting that we received?
Then I strongly want to proceed with this path so I shared it with you I hope you listen carefully that you also go read all the information available about Milena and her method in particular I will leave you in the post also the references to find Milena
There is also an opportunity of discount for three of you who want to participate in the workshop in Milan. Milena travels the world so it’s an opportunity to have her here in Milan too if someone is particularly interested I can write in private I remember my contacts I’m on twitter, I’m on LinkedIn and of course on telegram in any case if you want to contact me and leave a message in private I’ll be happy to give you more precise information
I leave the in-depth links below the post I’m happy that Milena was our guest thank you once again and thank you especially for following me so faithfully I’m really pleased I hope to do a good job for all of us
Today the journalist and blogger Sara Maria Malacalza published on the account Instagram de i Libri Salvano, her review on the book of Mylena Vocal Coach “The way of the Voice”.
You can read it directly on Instagram (in Italian) or translated at the bottom of this page.
Here is the review of i_libri_salvano, translated in english:
We are seeds full of essence, bearers of a light capable of piercing that veil that prevents us from seeing.
Milena, who has never stopped looking for herself in her life and has refused imposed silences, helps us to find the guru who has always been within us waiting to be brought to light and able to show us the way to the conscious use of voice. Vocal Coach, lives and works in Boston even with blind children, autistic and mute, knows how to transform the student into a musical instrument perfectly tuned through the method INBORN VOICE allows us to find, recognize and educate our voice.
A reading that helps us to understand the true meaning of the word, the value of the energies and vibrations that compose us and bring back to the surface that “inborn voice” originally shaped by time, lies and the “external voice”.
A book that teaches us not to shut down the talent within us, not to silence our essence among the millions that surround us and to reconnect with the primordial sensitivity.
All of this through its evolution through gestation, birth, the growth of the individual and the interaction between the brain and the phonatory apparatus.
Milena also teaches us that “unsuitable resonances” (accents, cadences, faulty pronunciation) can be blunted by training the vocality.
A woman who has found her essence: to connect people to their voices, I am still looking for my … and you?
Milena will soon be in Europe with her workshops in London and Milan!
