Your Chakras, Your Music
February 19, 2010
Music is in all of us. We are all musicians. Only in the last 500 years has music become a spectator sport. Before then, music existed as something entire families and communities participated freely in without judgement. When the mathematics of music were uncovered and exploited and rules were placed upon what is and isn’t music, humanity in general started to move toward the consensus of what is considered music now, which is based upon whether you do or don’t follow those rules, whether or not you are good enough to be considered a musician.
Of course, if you have a goal to perform music to a football stadium full of people, it helps if you follow or cleverly circumvent the rules in place that allow that to happen. Apart from this relatively new perspective on validating music, you can still greatly enjoy making music and participate in it, just as humans have since the beginning of its creation.
Music, and sound in general, is waves vibrating the air and all forms of matter around us. Physicists have come to an understanding that all of our known universe is comprised of vibrations. The seven major chakras from top to bottom can be associated with a color spectrum just like that of visible light from violet to red. Notes can be assigned to these chakras, with the note C being the lowest, or root chakra, and each successive note with each higher chakra. There are even notes in between like F# and C# associated with chakras in between. If you have an instrument or can sing these individual notes while envisioning the respective colors and chakras you will be joining two forms of energy with the energy that your body and spirit are capable of radiating, tuning yourself, an instrument with a purpose.
