- medicine music -
Living Singing - medicine music is a sound therapy that can be done individually or for small groups. I open myself to channel the sound that people need to receive in the moment, in a lively, creative, spontaneous way.
This work is done with all chakras, so that all energy centers receive music as medicine. There may be healing and shamanic chants that I collected along my path, or totally improvised sounds, created at that moment. The sounds match the frequency, vibration, color and element of each chakra, creating a totally different ambience for each one.
Each chakra is connected to an area in our lives, so when I work with them you can feel how you are going in these areas:
CROWN CHACKRA (Color: Violet / Element: Thought / Mantra: Ah) - Unity, Transcendence
THIRD EYE CHAKRA (Color: Indigo / Element: Light / Mantra: Om ) - Vision, Intuition, Awareness
THROAT CHAKRA (Color: Blue / Element: Ether / Mantra: Ham) - Communication, Expression, Creativity
HEART CHAKRA (Color: Green / Element: Air / Mantra: Yam) - Love, Connection, Compassion
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA (Color: Yellow / Element: Fire / Mantra: Ram) - Wil, Power, Assertiveness
SACRAL CHAKRA (Color: Orange / Element: Water / Mantra: Vam) - Sexuality, Self-Worth, Emotional Flow
ROOT CHAKRA (Color: Red / Element: Earth / Mantra: Lam) - Grounding, Stability, Safety
Sounds heal, align, energize. I use my voice and shamanic/healing instruments for that, and Reiki, Kinesiology and Aromatherapy add to the process in a unique way.
It's an authorial work, fruit of years of effort to put together my therapeutic and artistic gifts.
Chakras are vortices of energy that serve as the main points of our life force, and their condition is paramount to how we feel. They affect the nerves and major organs, as well as our emotional and spiritual state.
The word "chakra" in Sanskrit translates to "wheel" or "disc." In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to the wheels of energy throughout the mind-body system.
Ideally, all our chakra frequencies would be in balance all the time, but this is rarely the case. Life knocks us off kilter, but there are ways to align our chakras once again.
Understanding Harmonic Resonance
Everything has a certain frequency at which it vibrates. This is known as an object's resonant frequency. Some objects have two or more resonant frequencies, just as we have not one, but several chakras that resonate differently.
When sound or light waves, which have their own resonant frequency, hit an object, it will lead to harmonic resonance if that frequency corresponds to the resonant frequency of the object.
Sometimes, in order for harmonic resonance to occur, the amplitude of the vibration of an object must increase due to the corresponding vibrations of the other object.
When that happens, they are tuned to one another; therefore, both of them will sync together.
Imagine that you're a clock and the universe is also a clock. If you are in tune and your frequencies match, you will start ticking together through harmonic resonance.
Each chakra has its frequency of vibration, sound, color, and symbol to which it is tuned. When it is balanced, cleansed, and energized, then the chakra is in harmony and plays its most beautiful melody, emitting inherent vibrations.
Many aspects of life can affect these chakra frequencies and ruin the harmony, such as chaotic sounds, stress, and unhealthy thoughts and emotions.
On the other hand, things like certain people's voices, beautiful music, positive mantras, and the vibrational energy of colors and precious stones can help to bring our chakra frequencies back into harmonic resonance.
Each chakra resonates at a specific frequency. According to Chakrakey.com, they are...
Root Chakra - Root - Muladhara - Red - 432 Hz
Sacral Chakra - Sacrum - Swadhisthana - Orange - 480 Hz
Solar Plexus Chakra - Naval - Manipura - Yellow - 528 Hz
Heart Chakra - Heart - Anahata - Green - 594 Hz
Throat Chakra - Throat - Vishuddha - Light Blue - 672 Hz
Third Eye Chakra - Brow - Ajna - Indigo - 720 Hz
Crown Chakra - Top of Head - Sahasrara - Purple - 768 Hz
It’s been called many things – the universal language, a great healer, even a reflection of the divine. While there’s little doubt about the power of music, research now shows us just how powerful it can be.
“Across the history of time, music has been used in all cultures for healing and medicine,” said health psychologist Shilagh Mirgain, PhD. “Every culture has found the importance of creating and listening to music. Even Hippocrates believed music was deeply intertwined with the medical arts.”
Scientific evidence suggests that music can have a profound effect on individuals – from helping improve the recovery of motor and cognitive function in stroke patients, reducing symptoms of depression in patients suffering from dementia, even helping patients undergoing surgery to experience less pain and heal faster. And, of course, it can be therapeutic.
“Music therapy is an established form of therapy to help individuals address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs,” said Mirgain. “Music helps reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure and cortisol in the body. It eases anxiety and can help improve mood."
Music is often in the background just about anywhere we go – whether at a restaurant or the store. But Mirgain offers some tips to help use music intentionally to relax, ease stress and even boost moods:
For hundreds of years, scientists have been aware of the effects of sounds on the human body. Research shows that even high-frequency sounds that are imperceptible to hearing affect a person's brain activity.
Music evokes an emotional response in the human body, which can lead to everything from skin itching to a torrent of purifying tears.
Vibration instruments such as singing bowls and gongs are used to create light waves of vibrations that are aimed at readjusting the mind.
Solfeggio frequencies have been associated since ancient times with the creation of sacred music, which is believed to promote healing.
When you play sounds at the following frequencies, you can bring your chakras back into resonance with their natural state.
Here are the main Solfeggio frequencies as they correspond to the chakra frequencies, as outlined by chakrahealingsounds.com:
396 Hz - Root Chakra - Frees us from guilt and fear
417 Hz - Sacral Chakra - Eliminates blocks, conventions, habits, and opens the mind to accept change
528 Hz - Solar Plexus - Transformation and DNA healing
639Hz - Heart - Communication, interconnection, connection
741 Hz - Throat Chakra - Awakening intuition
852 Hz - Third Eye - Erasing stereotypes, restoring neural connections, bringing spiritual order
963 Hz - Crown Chakra - Connection with higher consciousness
