Music Therapy in the Age of
Since ancient times, known beneficial effects of music on human health.
Sounds truly heard by miracles, heal and uplift the spirit, excite,
Music heard in the current streams, Spouting sources, the noise of rain,
thunder mountain streams unceasing flow of the oceans and seas. Music
heard in the breath of wind, rustling leaves, chirping of birds ... It is
through music people continually transmits the feelings and sensations, it
is through music, he expressed his religious feeling and it was with her
help, he sends his sorrows, their joys, their love and all of their
Indian philosophers have said that at the beginning of human history there
was no language, was, as the song goes, "eternal music." People expressed
their thoughts and feelings sounds: low or high, long or short. The depth
of tone indicative of the strength and power, and the pitch of expressing
love and wisdom. Our ancestors were Slavs chant - the echoes of their
everyday speech can be heard today in the church, when reading the Gospel,
the Apostles and the Psalter. Novgorod veche was a pure opera, with arias,
duets and choruses. In castles and palaces, the singing and the music
sounded almost around the clock, creating a favorable psychological
background of the life of the rulers.
Music can heal our grief and melancholy. She makes relive and revive the
memory of our cherished memories. Music changes the perception of time and
space. Music affects respiration, pulse and blood pressure. Music reduces
stress and increases immunity. Music raises fortitude. Music helps plant
growth, lulls children, makes the shelves march to war. Music can inspire
creativity. Many writers and poets have told us that conceived their works
or when listening to music, or immediately thereafter. His music is
capable of beating of drums scare off evil spirits, sing the praises of
the Virgin Mary, to appeal to the Buddha for the sake of universal
salvation, captivate and soothe, revive and transform.
Music - a breath of the soul and consciousness. Through the music of the
soul manifests itself on earth. When a higher consciousness wakes up in a
man when he will develop the capabilities of more subtle perceptions, he
will hear that a grand symphony that sounds in space from one edge of the
universe, and then he would understand the deep meaning of life. From the
first cry to the last dying breath, we reached the sea sounds and
vibrations every second of our lives. This is the sound of the original
creator, speech of angels and atoms, is the essence of which is so ok
tailored reality and dreams, the substance and reality.
The culture of whatever country we may take, anywhere can find information
about using music in the normalization of state of mind of people, ie, in
the psychotherapeutic purposes. In the cradle of human civilization -
China and India, Egypt and Ancient Greece, doctors and priests,
philosophers and musicians have used music for healing.
Already in the works of the first recognized theorist of music - ancient
Greek philosopher Pythagoras, we find a description of how music can
affect the emotional state. One of the most important concepts in the
ethics of Pythagoras was "eurythmy" - a person's ability to find the right
rhythm in all aspects of life - singing, playing, dancing, speech,
gestures, thoughts, actions, in the birth and death. After finding the
correct rhythm of the man regarded as a kind of microcosm could
harmoniously enter first into the rhythm of the polis harmony, and then
connect to the cosmic rhythm of the whole world.
One of psychotherapeutic success of Pythagoras, the disclosure of which
has reached our days, is taming them using the music of Greek youths,
angry betrayal of his lover and who wanted to burn down her house,
Pythagoras ordered the musician flutist, who was at the same time, to
change the musical mood of the music of the Phrygian on spodeistsky and
thus reassured the young man.
Another philosopher Plato (427-347 BC. Er.) Believed that the state is no
worse way to destroy morals than a departure from the harmonious music.
Through the loose frets "in the soul listeners can enter a shameful and
appalling - through frets too harsh. Rhythms and harmonies, thought Plato,
working on the idea, do it according to themselves. Therefore the best
protection of the state - the music of "power and harmonious, modest and
simple. Plato and his followers believed that permitted only those pieces
of music and instruments by which an individual can rise to the level of
The ideas of Plato and Pythagoras were the greatest development in the
writings of Aristotle, developed the doctrine of mimesis - the
representation of the inner world of man and how to influence it through
art. In the theory of mimesis introduced the concept of catharsis -
purification of the soul (the listener, the viewer) in the process of
perception of works of art, reflecting the world of human characters and
passions, and his amazing truth and beauty.
Following Plato, which the world was presented as a sounding unity, built
on a comprehensive three-tier music and then talked about «musica mundana»
- music universe, «musica humana» - music that sounds in a person, and,
finally, the «musica instrumentalis» - acoustically perceived vocal or
instrumental music. Later this concept that the soul and the human body
have the same harmonic, and digital proportion as in the motion of stars
in the sounds of music was perceived and Betiusom (480-524), chancellor of
Theodoric. Even before the rationalism of this theory was further
developed by Johannes Kepler, appointed in 1612 chief mathematician at the
imperial court in Upper Austria. Following scholars of antiquity, Kepler
suggested the harmony of the worlds of music. In his book "World Harmony",
which became widely known among only in recent years, it is a symphony of
peace, unification of all the planets in a harmonious whole. More eyes
turned to the muses than through the eyes of a naturalist, he calculated
using the harmonic transposition of the different trajectories of planets,
basic sounds, scales and melodies, which led him later to describe the
polyphonic harmony of the other planets as they might sound on the first
day of creation.
Staggering, and at the same time fascinated by the fact that these ancient
and almost fantastic ideas with Einstein's relativity theory have been
recently transferred to the conditions of our century. Upon submission
Garburgera, namely music is based on the geometric principles of the
multidimensional nature, and a variety of time and sound are the basis of
music, which is directly adjacent to the general plan of the geometry of
the universe. With difficulty we can see that between the lofty
mathematical facts and music, direct appeal to the heart, there is a close
relationship, and how once put Ansermet, sounds that make music, have
always combined so that they form a logarithmic system.
The spirit of Pythagoras, and imbued with a modern "harmonic picture of
the world," Hans Kayser, who on the whole construction of the worlds saw
an ancient phenomenon of sound. His "Harmony" is not the same harmony in
music theory, but represents a more universal notion, certain information
from the ancient doctrine of "Sound of Peace". He finds a characteristic
trehzvuchie musical cadences in the geological structure of our earth and
was based on the observations on which the earthquake waves in the
different zones are manifested in the earth in different ways, and the
radii of these zones resemble long strings dur-chord series of overtones,
that is exactly the same similar to any person natural phenomenon, and has
a surprising resemblance to him. This "trehzvuchnaya structure" bowels of
the earth reduced to a representation of our earth as a huge chord and
fully consistent with the ancient understanding of «musica mundana».
Music, sounding in a man, «musica humana», in the ancient world to find
their match early on as a representation of the music in the pulse. This
notion came from a doctor Gerofilosa, who lived 300 years BC. er. in
Alexandria. Later it was seen medieval music theory, as well as medicine.
Already Roger Bacon (1215-1295) in his book «Opus tertium», published in
1267, pointed out that the pulse at regular intervals like the music, so
the doctrine of the pulse, he tried to subdue the music. According to him,
the doctor must know the musical proportions. Already Avicenna (980-1037)
in his "Book of Healing" an entire section devoted to the relationship
between pulse and music. And when this book translated from Arabic into
Latin in the XII century., Has become a major medical textbook of the
medieval West, the musical doctrine of measuring pulse Gerofila firmly
established in medical science.
Therefore not surprising that already in the tenth century, a prerequisite
for the study of medicine was considered mastery of the art. This
requirement is in the XIII century, it became obligatory for a university
curriculum. For example, a medical student in Paris in 1426 was
necessarily requires that the medical students, receiving a doctorate,
must be certified by different kinds of art. But as for candidates for the
title of Master of Arts was necessary to give lectures on music, one can
assume that at the end of the XIV century. every future doctor during his
training was to take a course of music theory.
Once in the early XVII century music has ceased to be science-based
discipline in medical universities and have not been before compulsory
subject for the doctor - the music, in the XVIII century, gradually
disappeared a long tradition of «musica humana», but nowadays it is again
experiencing a revival.
Start the involvement of music in medical theory and practice is lost in
the mists of time when music and art of healing have been inextricably
linked with each other. Initially, the main role was played by the
so-called healing singing. Already in Homer's Odyssey, wounded in hunting
wild boar, cured by singing sons of Autolycus. In the "Iliad," says a
special form of healing song, which is used as a means to protect against
plague. This magical view of the healing power of music is described in a
treatise by 665 BC. er. Taletas from Crete arrived at the behest of an
oracle in Sparta and her singing has delivered the inhabitants of
Lacedaemon the plague.
In the ancient world as a basis for healing music served as a doctrine of
«Ethos» music when singing along with the central role playing and tools:
Aulos, similar to the oboe, and Kitaro, similar to the lyre. Depending on
the use of tools and the nature of its sound, the pace and, above all, a
certain rhythm of the music each time was given special significance. At
the same time the listener excited by various passions. Stimulating effect
Aulos used already and Asclepius (124-60 BC) in order to liberate people
from the depressed melancholic mood. Lira its gentle sound, and deeply
penetrating into the soul of music was supposed to purify the human soul
from excessive sensitivity and passion. Therefore, talking about cleaning
Already in the XIII century music was considered the most important where
medical means by which it was possible to slow the aging process rights.
At this "delay symptoms of aging," with music first pointed out by Roger
Bacon (1215 - 1295). In «Gerontocomia» Gabriele Zerby - the first
published paper on gerontology - an influence, extending the life of man,
because the music, thanks to their numerical order, akin to the harmony
inherent in man. This view was also expressed Franchinus Ranchinus
(1561-1641) in his work «Gerocomia», published in 1627
In addition, the geriatric indication, the music as a healing agent has
acquired special significance in the treatment of mental illness,
especially depression, as he wrote in his Raimund Minderer «Threnodia
medica» in 1619, Dane Olaus Borrihius (1626-1690) in connection with this
pointed out that music was invented, not in order "... to expel the
disease, and most of all to influence the mental state of man. " This
comment seemed necessary, since the effect of music around the medieval
towns existed speculative in many respects, even children's views. It
suffices to read only «Musurgia universalis» Jesuit Athanasius Kircher,
published in 1684, which states that the music opens vents on the human
body, through which the evil, harmful spirits.
In 1807, in Vienna, published a book by Dr. Lichtental titled "The doctor
- a musician or a treatise on the influence of music on body and its use
in certain diseases," which precisely describes how music can affect the
psyche, and thus, indirectly, on itself body.
In difficult situations, which sometimes seem intractable analytically
hardly explainable through the use of music therapy is often possible to
achieve amazing results. History holds many examples of ancient and modern
times: to play the harp of David, who healed the King Saul's depression,
ten-Frederic Chopin his playing the piano managed to free the Grand Duke
of Poland from the terrible attacks of rage. The most convincing example
is the depression of Spanish King Philip V, of which only the sounds of
music could be made to get out of bed and take over the affairs of state.
In 1941, John Altschuler izoprintsipa developed a method whereby patients
offers music appropriate to their mental state at the moment. For
depressed patients, it was music creates a tranquil pace, for excitable -
a fast. After the phrase used otreagirovaniya affect major and optimistic
In the first 50 years in the UK, at a school for children with mental
retardation, met an American pianist and composer Paul Nordof and the
British psychologist Professor Clive Robbins. Catching up with the
children, both came to the same conclusion: it turns out, the music
affects the expression of these guys. The first experiments have given
great results, and this prompted scientists to develop a special technique
- creative music therapy, which soon began to be used as a mandatory part
of the rehabilitation.
But much more than simply listening to music, influences people actively
making music. Physician Henry Ganzelman best described therapeutic effect
of active music making. But these considerations are, of course, more to
the creative musician for whom music means samoterapiyu. Artists are often
on the verge of neurosis. Their creative work often serves as their
emergency exit in order to overcome the neurosis and get peace of mind.
Their own music relieves them of stress, which is trying to escape.
Therefore, it is to some extent marked by conflict and spiritual
experiences of a musician. On the other hand, the musician can their
creativity to overcome suffering, and even fear of death, so the music in
a metaphysical term approaches to theology.
All musical works bear the imprint of the energy of the inner world of the
author - his emotions, feelings, mind. Over the past 40 years in music
appeared very much new - rock, disco, jazz, electronic, space music, etc.
From all variety of musical styles and especially the music should be made
in the style of New Age. This line of music contributes to the
harmonization of personality, spiritual growth, brings beauty and goodness.
Listening to new age music relieves stress, refines and heals. This music
is written by people who are in a spiritual quest, seeking to improve
themselves, to become more pure and harmonious. Expressing music through
its internal state, spiritually advanced people pick up listeners to the
level of its inspirations, which are indispensable companions of light,
joy, a sense of mission and reflections of the enlightened mind.
What is sound? Science tells us that this is a definite vibration (vibration)
of air, ie the external environment. But the external sound is audible
only because there is sound in the inner consciousness, and when the sound
inside stops, then the body can not create a foreign sound. We also know
that people not only formed of vibrations, but also lives and moves in
them: they surround him like a fish surrounded by water. You can imagine
the human body as a live sound generator and receiver-resonator sound.
Therefore, the physical effect of sound has a great influence on the human
body. Mood, preferences, business, success, failure - all of life depends
on the type and activity of vibrations, be they thoughts, emotions or
feelings. The fact that he felt the soul, there is vibration senses.
Mastering the mind - the vibration of thought. What the ears hear and eyes
see, - vibration dense, crystallized from the field of state and
manifested in the atoms that make up the physical world and of which
consist of its elements: air, fire, water, metal, earth.
Students in the classroom physics experiments are often carried out with
the generation of pure tones by observing their effects on various
materials such as sand, oil, and water. In these experiments, we can see
how the sand formed into precise geometric shapes, where the violin bow
across the edge hold of a metal plate on which the sand. Some tones make
the oil floating on the surface of water to thicken, or vice versa to
share like an amoeba, if the tone frequency povyshetsya. Tiny particles of
salt, there is one on the other, make dance like human figures, as they
react to the vibrating surface under them.
Physics, trying to determine the nature of physical substance, plunging
into their studies deeper and deeper into the realm of atomic and
subatomic particles, finding that there was nothing there, at least, there
is no substance. They describe the tiniest subatomic particles as "interference
zones" of different sound frequencies. Vibration is in the root of each
phenomenon, but, perceiving the sounds of the world, we do not always
respond to them.
Vibrations are endless in its structure. The finest of them are not even
perceptible soul. The soul itself is a vibration. Many mystics claim that
the spirit is also a vibration. Vibration incredibly fast and powerful.
Not for nothing, probably, the Bible says that in the beginning was the
Word. If we understand this word as a combination of vibration and
At the level of sound vibrations cause a variety of tones, and in the
physical space of light - a variety of colors. And the color and sound
have an impact on the human soul in accordance with the law of harmony. To
thin the soul becomes light, and an even more subtle - the sound. He may
have a desirable or undesirable effect on the human mind and body, and
healing effect without drugs, whose action is also associated with the
vibrations, namely, is their assimilation.
Sound permeates all human beings and in accordance with certain of their
influence will slow down or speed up the rhythm of blood circulation,
stimulates the nervous system, or calms her, awakens in a person stronger
passion or appeasing it, brings peace. Very often people are cured of the
disease through repeated repetition of certain words and mantras, because
their sound gave the corresponding energy center of the body vibration
necessary for its recovery. In shamanic ritual drum sounds, rhythmic
chants and spells, penetrate into the depth of people's minds, forcing
them to vibrate every cell, is introduced into a state of ecstasy. And
then they can jump into the fire and not burn, cut himself with a sword,
and instantly heal, swallowing fire and burned. These altered states of
consciousness similar to those which occur when reading prayers, mantras,
and no matter what language they are satisfied, the whole thing in a
vibratory structure of the rhythm.
The main components
Rhythm. This is the original and fundamental element of music. Music
primitive community consists solely of a rhythm. That it is called the "heart
music". Rhythm has the most powerful and direct impact on people - and on
his body, and emotions. Life of the body based on different rhythms:
respiratory, heart, different movements, activity and rest, not to mention
the more subtle rhythms at the level of cells and molecules. Psychological
condition of the person, too, has its complicated rhythms: winged and
depression, grief and joy, zeal and apathy, strengths and weaknesses and
so on. All these states are very sensitive to the musical rhythms. Is it
because they have the magic to excite and soothe, heal and destroy ...
There are certain actions in which the rhythm of the body, emotions and
music interpenetrate and merge into a single unit. This happens in the
dance, which can be called live music coming from the soul of man.
Recently, doctors found that shamans rhythmic drum beats in the act on the
psyche of the patient, stimulating the underlying structure of his brain.
American ethnographer Michael Garner, first mastered shamanic "techniques",
even managed to use them to cure his friend of alcoholism. It is known
that at constant drunkenness endogenous ethanol - the natural alcohol
produced in small quantities in the body, gradually disappears, and to
make up for his loss, alcoholics need to take daily dose at the nearest
stall. Garner found that the rhythms of drum raise the level of natural
ethanol, and the mental state comes back to normal.
Melody. The combination of rhythms, tones and accents give birth each time
a unique melody. It affects the listener is particularly intense and
diverse. Melody evokes not only emotion but also feelings, images and
beliefs that strongly affects virtually all bodily functions, especially
in the nervous system, breathing and circulation.
Harmony. Melody is formed by a sequence of sounds. Harmony is also a
simultaneous sounding of several sounds, harmonizing with each other,
which form chords. Due to various vibrations radiate these chords in the
soul of listeners there is a feeling of harmony or dissonance, that in any
case have some physiological and psychological effects. The predominance
of dissonance in modern music is an expression of disorder, conflict,
crises, which bring suffering to modern man.
Timbre. Everyone who has a musical ear, a different feel the charm of a
violin or flute, harp and soprano. The composer skillfully combining
various instruments in an orchestra can bring a huge audience to a frenzy,
the whole stadium ...
Music & Esoteric
The word "esoteric" derives from the Greek esoterikos, "internal". The
term originated in the Hellenistic period (IV-III century. BC).
Historically it meant Occult Science, "an internal doctrine of" religious,
philosophical or other exercises that are available only passed the rites
of the higher initiations.
Esoterica today - it generalizes the name of the modern doctrine or, more
accurately, perceptions of the world and man as the unity of macrocosm and
microcosm, not restrict ourselves to one only by their material
characteristics, the method of learning the "inner essence" of all things,
a measure which is known to man.
At the heart of contemporary esotericism is a comparative study of the
teachings of East and West whose purpose - to help people get to know
first of all myself, so if the measure of all things - himself, for
without this he can not know everything. A Self-knowledge, as is known,
not only the oldest but also the most difficult of the tasks that ever
puts the person without reason at the temple of Apollo at Delphi was
written: Gnwri se auton - "Know thyself."
Music from ancient times attracted the attention of the secret influence
on a person coming from her by an unknown force, capable of influencing
human behavior. In ancient Greek music, a certain frets were attributed to
the exact properties of the formation of any moral human qualities.
Ancient Greece had the frets:
Ionian - lyrical, erotic.
Dorian - courageous, nravoukreplyayuschy that protects against misfortune,
the historically central way.
Phrygian - an exciting, aggressive.
Lydian - relaxing, inhibitory.
Music has always included constant part of any ritual, festival. Musicians
believed possessed otherworldly forces, and other instruments through
which the gods speak to people.
Modern skeptics of science dispelled myths about the most unusual
properties of melodies. However, one of the most striking of its qualities
- the levitation force of music - to this day remains a mystery even to
them. Unfortunately, the countless testimonies of how to use it to the air
lift objects of varying severity, science has not helped.
In the Indian village Shivapur stands a small mosque built in honor of
Sufi saint Ali Camara Dervis. In its courtyard is a stone weighing about
63 kg. And to this day during the daily prayer 11 ministers gathered
around the stone, repeating the name of a saint. When their voices reach a
certain height, the monks are able to raise the huge stone, keeping it
only one finger each. Once the singing stops, they quickly bounce back,
and the stone falls to the ground. The secret lies precisely in the hymns
and eleven votes - the formula needed to lift the stone into the air.
Reaching a certain height, the voices of the servants of changing
vibration characteristics of the stone and make it lighter.
Another manifestation of the levitation properties of music observed in
Tibet, a Swedish engineer and aircraft builder Henry Kellson. He described
how the monks dragged the stones in an area of 1.5 square meters with the
help of oxen on the plateau, and placed them in a special cupped hole. It
was located near the 400-meter cliff, where it was necessary to build the
temple. Beside her stood 19 musicians, and behind them the columns,
radiating, lining 200 priests.
All musical instruments (13 reels in three sizes and 6 large pipes) have
been sent to the pit. On command they all begin to sound, and the priests
sing in unison.
4 minutes Kellson noticed that the stones in the pit started to shake and
sway from side to side. As the sound the stones were raised in the air for
400 feet, while flying on a parabolic trajectory just before the precipice,
where he was to build the temple. According to an engineer, so the monks
could lift and carry five to six stone slabs per hour.
Several years later, Swedish physician Earl, also watched these amazing
phenomena. Then he worked in Oxford Scientific Society in Egypt and was
invited to treat the Supreme Lama of Tibet. Yarlu allowed to shoot the
film the whole ritual with levitation stones. But then Oxford Science
Society confiscated film, saying that because Earl was then working on
them, movies are the property of the society. Hid them in the archives
under the heading "Top Secret", and the location of the films is unknown
But on this "Case of Tibetan monks," is not over. In his music album "Genesis
Grail Kings" Adrian Wagner reproduced the first four minutes of levitation
ritual of Tibetan monks, using the scheme described earlier Kellsonom.
After the laser disc Wagner received some feedback from listeners, who
observed during disc play strange phenomena. One said that the music
continued to sound even after the player was disconnected. Others wrote
that during the playing of this music in the room took off various objects.
As the depletion of energy resources of the earth man would have to seek
other sources of energy. Who knows, maybe one of them will be the
levitation force of music. However, for this would first have to unravel
the nature of the surprising phenomenon ...
St. Augustine even thought the music and mathematics at the true language
of God. Art in general and music in particular the most closely associated
with the esoteric experience of man, largely based on specific, higher
states of the human psyche, in the super-consciousness, the unknown,
hidden areas of receiving and processing information. There are many
secrets, secrets excellence, going deep into the spiritual world of man,
the source of his creative powers. Not accidentally art has always been
associated with magical and religious experience, which his relatives
state of inspiration, inspiration, inspiration, ecstasy, feeling that the
artist is only a translator, a voice of some higher power. In art, people
truly free, because the flight of his imagination creates a different
Search for the hidden, esoteric meaning of peace and human destiny lies
precisely in the immersion into all the deeper layers of consciousness,
where there is a source of inspiration and enlightenment. Avoiding the
real dimensions of being, a sense of the passage of time and the
deployment of spatiality, the ability to operate with ideal entities that
do not have enough details of the draft - all this is the essence of art,
Along with the interaction of personality with the outside world (the
sphere of public knowledge and activities), there is a spiritual immersion,
leading to the knowledge of the inner space of personality, the origins of
creativity, wealth of esoteric (private knowledge). It's like I'm two
special rights, existing and operating under different laws in the same
space-time coordinates, although, naturally, intersecting with each other.
First, everyday I am acting in the usual time scale, has deployed the
structure of thinking logically and causally linked, fairly smooth
transitions, it feeds externally derived information and processes and
evaluates her life according to the program, ideals, interests, traditions,
work here volitional processes. Second, creative I do not repelled by the
life goals and standards (though indirectly connected with them), but from
certain internal, embedded in the depths of the subconscious, the
structures of the subjective, spiritual ideal of the sacred and artistic
expression of human nature and the world. There appear peculiar, variable
time and space, acts a certain logic of interaction, dominated by
intuition and not volitional processes. Arising in these circumstances, a
spiritual entity (including art) breaks into reality, but does not merge
with it, and coexists in parallel to obtain the status of eternal truth,
beauty and perfection. Here are the hidden mechanisms of intuition,
inspiration, insight, imagination genetic memory and other structures of
the second I come from some inner, germ, overcompression fact, some
initial ideas, first impulse.
Many composers have noted the effect of influx in the works. Not by chance
the word inspiration (someone has breathed in the artist's work) indicates
that this initial sense. Brahms claimed in one letter: "I do not take any
responsibility for his music: it is given me a special power. I am
responsible only for the way I designed it. " Beethoven exclaimed: "Do you
think I am thinking about some damn fiddle when the spirit speaks to me?"
.. "Tchaikovsky has repeatedly stressed that the immediate inspiration,
not subject the will of man, that here there is a special state of
obedience to the inner voice, a certain supernatural power that moves the
creator. "Music just rushing out of me" - he wrote P. Jurgenson. In this
state, it does not work, and pleasure, the work comes with absolutely
inconceivable ease. Forget everything, my soul trembles from some totally
incomprehensible and ineffable sweet emotion, absolutely no time to follow
her impulse somewhere, time goes virtually unnoticed.
It can be assumed that the germ, the original essence of the second, I am
a creative artist is identified with the innermost core of personality,
which, according to the Indian philosopher Vivekananda, represented the
core of the cosmos, where in deep meditation, felt the vibration and music
of the Vedas, sounding like a chord in the color blue, cold fire.
Scholars of ancient India believed the science and art derive a creative
principle. All knowledge of ancient India are concentrated in the Vedas (sacred
Hindu scriptures) and one of the 4 main Vedas Sama-Veda is entirely
devoted to music. In accordance with the Vedas creation of the world began
with the primordial sound Om became apparent at the time of the separation
of the Almighty God (Sadasiva) and their creative energy (Adi Shakti).
This became the foundation of Om entire universe and was the first musical
sound. (It is estimated that the entire Indian music evolved from this
sound.) Om is the personification of the god Ganesha - the embodiment of
innocence and purity - the principle of the first chakra, muladary,
located at the base of the whole subtle system of rights, which consists
of 7 main chakras and 3 channels, which control the mental , emotional and
physical human life.
Chakras are located along the central axis of the body, from the tailbone
to the crown. Chakras are not anatomy, is not composed of molecules and
cells, but represent an oscillating circuit, the complex frequency range,
resonating with external sources of vibration.
