The great impact of music on a person and the world around does not cease to excite those who are consciously treating their life as a gift and seeking to fill this life with divine sounds.
Music is a force that can be used both for blessing and evil. It has long been known that music is a factor that sets the direction for the development of civilization. Let’s consider how we are influenced by the basic components of music.
Rhythm has the strongest and most direct effect on our body. Every part of our body possesses its own rhythm: breathing, heartbeat, brainwork, various movements and activities even at the level of cells and molecules.
Melody affects the listener especially intensely and diversely. The melody awakens images, feelings, and beliefs, greatly influencing all vital functions of human organism.
Harmony is built by simultaneously played sounds, which form chords. Due to the various vibrations emitted by these chords, listeners can experience either a feeling of harmony or dissonance.
Anyone with a musical ear can feel the charm of a flute or cello, harp or violin differently. The composer, skillfully combining instruments of various timbre in the orchestra, can bring a huge audience to the frenzy. However, frequency plays the most important role in perceiving the music.
In musical history, the 432 Hertz frequency has always been used to tune musical instruments. Discovered ancient Egyptian instruments were tuned to 432 Hz. Tibetan singing bowls have the same frequency. Moreover, Antonio Stradivari created his masterpieces tuned to 432 Hertz.
Mozart, Verdi, and many other musicians tuned their music to this frequency because of the healing energy it evoked in the audience.
In 1953, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) adopted the “LA” 440 Hz, as the tuning standard. Despite numerous protests from musicians and composers, this standard remains the same nowadays.
440 hertz is the frequency that most strongly affects the human brain and evokes fear and aggression. The frequency of 440 hertz stimulates the certain brain areas, “convenient” for setting up various programs. On the contrary, the frequencies from 430 to 435 Hertz allow you to calmly and deliberately perceive the music feeling its healing and meditative effect.
Music should be perceived much broader than just a set of sounds. Many of us want to “wake up” our own vibrations in order to be able to open up to the new energies of the world, goodness, love, abundance. An important step towards this is the awareness of what kind of music we listen to and what impact it has on our body. When choosing musical works, it is advised to track your own reaction and mark observations. You need to be more selective about music and pay attention to your reactions in the form of emotions, thoughts and feelings that a particular melody triggers in your soul.
“Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.” Ludwig van Beethoven
