Every individual is well acquainted with their own emotional and physical body, as we have felt it, used it and experienced it since birth. We spend a lot of time throughout our lives to understand, develop and act according to our emotional and physical needs and desires. We learn about ourselves and our needs, and respond to it with our best ability. This is what growth is – a lifelong process of introspection and response to what we figure out about ourselves along the way.
In the western society the main focus is on the physical and emotional body. In the field of science we discover new aspects and layers about the human body and experience all the time. We are a mystery to be lived and unfolded. Even though we do not fully understand the complexity of our own being, we want to take into consideration that there is yet another layer of our being that needs awareness and careful gardening if we as a whole wish to experience a more profound and balanced outlook on our self and life.
If we listen to the teachings from different cultures such as the Indian yogi system, Tibetans, the Mayans and the Zoroastrian they would have told us that the body is more than a physical and emotional state of being. Emotion is energy, and we have an energetic body- or a light body that consists of various energy fields.
In the following article we invite you to take a deeper look on what these teachings can tell us about ourselves.
In Yogic tradition it is commonly believed that we have 7 bigger chakras and 21 smaller chakras throughout the body, and every energy field is responsible for their own experience or information input. There are also 72 000 smaller and more subtle energy fields within our body. These energetic channels are called nadis and meridians. The nadis and meridians are responsible for the transportation and flow of prana, or lifeforce energy.
In the perspective of physics, all matter is frozen light. We are light bodies, and everything we eat is light vibrating at a certain speed. Even though we perceive ourselves as solid, we are actually energy. We know that matter and energy are different sides of the same coin.
Does it make sense to you that your physical body is energetically communicating with the world within and around you? If so, let’s have a deeper look at your energetic centers or vortexes called chakras.
A quick introduction to your chakras
Every human being has “divinity” that is the same essence as the source of the cosmos. Our bodies act as temporary bodies for the journey of our souls. We came to Earth in order to go forward and complete the journey of our soul. Although our physical bodies have their limitations they also contain the necessary tools to propel our souls toward completion of the journey. The difficulties and trials that come with the human body are actually blessings, propelling our soul’s expansive growth.Ilchi Lee, Healing Chakras
As the ancients knew, we are not only physical beings. Every human has a rainbow-colored energy field around them that is called aura. The aura is connected to the body with the help of our personal energy centers, the chakras. We can say that the aura is an extension of the chakras.
The word chakra derives from Sanskrit and can be translated to «Wheels of light”. The aura, chakras, meridians and nadis are our energetic channels of life force and information. With practice you can feel the energetic centers in your body.
With modern technology it is possible to measure the amount of electromagnetic field that is radiating from your body. From the top of your head to the bottom of your spine, there is an electric charge around 400 voltages. This is part of our electromagnetic field/ aura. Studies have shown that our aura stretches out up to nine meters from your body. All living beings have an energetic field (aura) surrounding them. We are charged by a life force energy that is in resonance with the energy from nature and cosmos.
This means that when you are walking through the world of life, you are constantly receiving energy and transmitting energy. The transmission of energy happens through our chakras.
Have you noticed that you can feel exhausted or overflooded with energy after walking through a stream of humans, either in a big city, the shopping mall etc. It is not only our senses and brain that filters information, we also receive and transmit information through our chakras and aura. From the aura of all living beings we can gather information concerning health, creativity and future.
Life is deeply complex, intelligent and interconnected.
For the skeptics there is a large amount of scientific proof that confirms the existence of our energetic body. One example is the experiment of Dr. W.J. Kilner from St. Thomas`s Hospital in London. He developed something called a “Dicyanin screen”. It is a lens that is painted with a dye that is made of coal and tar. This has an astonishing effect on the human eye that again allows us to comprehend ultraviolet frequencies. With this machine we can observe the electromagnetic field radiating from the body. In the east this is what they call the aura. He published a book called “The human atmosphere”.
Let us have a closer look at the chakras:
Consider your seven significant chakras heaped up like a sort of pyramid – with your first chakra making the wide and overpowering base of the pyramid, and the highest one in your body, your seventh chakra, addressing the most astounding tip of the pyramid.
Each chakra also identifies with a sense and an element:
Root Chakra = smell/earth
Sacral Chakra = taste/water
Solar Plexus Chakra = find/fire
Heart Chakra = touch/air
Throat Chakra = hearing/sound
Third Eye Chakra = “sixth sense”/light
Crown Chakra = No element/ Silence
The chakras has three states of being: Balanced, too active or underactive.
When the chakras are in balance, the energy flows at the right frequency, and your body, emotions and life are in harmony. Your health is vibrant and life in general flows with ease and joy. What you experience internally will be reflected in your external world – your purpose, relationships and outlook on life feels harmonic and fulfilling.
When the chakras are either too active or underactive, it means that there is too much energy that passes through them, or not enough energy flow. This again will manifest as emotional and physical distress and disease. One efficient way to balance your chakras is through sound healing. Let’s have a deeper look at how it works and how we can heal the chakras with sound.
Chakra healing with sound
Within the human experience we all accumulate different degrees of trauma, fears and insecurities that cause imbalance and upsets our energy body. Life is beyond anyone’s control, but we have a tendency to cling and hold on to both the negative and positive experiences as a means to feel we are in control. As we hold on to different experiences, we are storing the energy of it in our body. Energy is meant to flow to and through us, and not get stuck within us. When this happens, our life force (prana), does not flow freely throughout our body. When life force is not flowing freely it will affect your chakra system, and again make us exposed to physical, emotional and mental ailments.
Every cell in the body absorbs and emits sound with specific frequency, and each chakra vibrates at different frequencies, just as music and sounds vibrate at different frequencies. This makes music, and music therapy a really good ally to balance, heal and restore your chakra system back to its original health. Your chakras will again influence your overall health and personal vibration immensely. The right sounds will align with different chakras when their frequency is in resonance with each other.
When you expose your body to sounds with specific frequencies that vibrate within the optimum range of vibration in each chakra, your chakra will realign with the frequency it is exposed to. This phenomenon is known as harmonic resonance. Much like when you have two guitars in one room, and you play a particular string on one guitar, making the same string on the other guitar automatically play along. When we are in resonance, we are in balance.
Sound healing is a therapeutic method that uses sound to harmonize the mind and body of a person. During a sound healing session the sound healer can use different instruments and frequencies to balance the chakras.
Healing the chakras with frequencies
In the universe there are two primary elements of vibration which are sound and color. Each chakra is associated with a unique combination of these two primary elements. The chakras work together to maintain balance in the body, as they spin clockwise at different speeds. This causes them to vibrate at different frequencies that again invoke their associated color and sound.
Everything in this universe is energy vibrating at different frequencies. Some frequencies will create disease in your chakra system, and some frequencies will create harmony in your chakra system. When we use frequency to heal a specific chakra, we use frequencies that are in harmonic resonance with healthy chakras. This harmonic resonance occurs because the external frequency wave comes into contact with the chakra, and it causes the chakra to vibrate at the same frequency as the external frequency wave. The Solfeggio Scale is one of the frequency scales that has proven to be effective to restore balance to the chakra system.
Here is a list of colors and frequencies that resonate with different chakras:
- Root chakra = Red & Brown | Solfeggio frequency 396Hz & frequency 432Hz.
- Sacral chakra = Orange | Solfeggio frequency 417Hz & frequency 480Hz.
- Solar plexus = Yellow | Solfeggio frequency 528Hz.
- Heart chakra = Green, pink | Solfeggio frequency 639Hz & frequency 594Hz.
- Throat chakra = Blue | Solfeggio frequency 741Hz & frequency 672Hz.
- Third eye chakra = Indigo | Solfeggio frequency 852Hz & frequency 720Hz.
- Crown chakra = Violet, gold & white | Solfeggio frequency 963Hz & frequency 768Hz.
Healing the chakras with instruments
The most popular are ancient instruments such as Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, didgeridoo, wooden flute, rattles, drums, bells etc.
The more traditional instruments such as guitar, violin, cello, harp, drums, flutes, are also powerful sound allies to heal and balance different chakras.
Different key notes played on singing bowls, gongs and tuning forks resonate with different chakras, depending on the keynote they are tuned to. Every chakra responds to different notes.
Here is a list of instruments and key notes that resonate with different chakras:
- Root chakra = Didgeridoo, drums, rattles | Musical note C.
- Sacral chakra = Flutes, clarinets, bassoon, saxophone, bagpipes, woodwind | Musical note D.
- Solar plexus chakra = Organ, Harmonium | Musical note E.
- Heart chakra = String instruments such as: Violin, harp, cello, guitar & wind instruments | Musical note F.
- Throat chakra = Horn and horn instruments | Musical note G.
- Third eye chakra = Piano, bells, chimes | Musical note A.
- Crown chakra = Conch shells | Musical note B.
Instruments for clearing the aura = Rattles, handheld chime, crystal bowls, singing bowls, ceremonial drums and tuning forks.
Healing the chakras with mantras and vowels.
You can also use your own voice to chant sounds, vowels, and mantras to balance your chakras. Make sure you are singing the right musical note for each of your chakras.
In the east the sound of the chakras is associated with their Beeja or seed mantras. In the western world each chakra is associated with a vowel.
There is also a connection between the chakra vowels sound, and the organs and anatomical structures in the human body:
Here is a list of the seed mantra and vowel and their associated body parts/ organs:
- Root chakra = LAM | UH: Feet, knees, pelvis, skeletal system, muscular system
- Sacral chakra = VAM | EW: Reproductive organs, lower back, large intestines, kidneys
- Solar Plexus chakra = RAM | OH: Liver, pancreas, stomach, adrenals
- Heart chakra = YAM | AH: Heart, circulatory system, lungs
- Throat chakra = HAM | OH: Thyroid, vocal chords, esophagus, tonsils, larynx
- Third Eye chakra = AUM | EW: Eyes, ears, brain, endocrine system
- Crown chakra = AUM | UH: Brain, nervous system, hypothalamus, hair, nails, skin
Sound healing is a very efficient and powerful tool for balancing and healing the chakras. There are no rules as to where and how you should listen to chakra healing music. The more you listen to chakra frequencies, mantras or chant seed mantras or vowels, the quicker your chakras will resonate to that vibration.
Sound therapy is an important tool for healing the chakras, however if the problem as to why the chakras are out of balance still remains in your life, your chakras will stay unbalanced. In that case it is important to seek additional help from a professional therapist or a support group.
In any case where music is used as a tool in a therapy session of a professional therapist or support group, chakra healing music will have the ability to enhance and support the healing process further.
