Have you ever listened to a song and it SPOKE to your soul? You're all of a sudden teleported into a flood of memories, rushed with emotion. That song has tapped into a part of your subconscious inciting feeling. Music incarnates throughout all life forms down to the hollows of the wind, and that pain lodged deep in your soul, is released.
How does it do this? Through the intentions of words, energy and sound. We all know by now words are spells (and if you don't know, now you know know..) and every time we speak we are sending that energy out into the universe. We then receive that energy in return (whether it be how we hoped or not). And if you aren't spiritual, and identify with religion, this is done through a prayer, ritualistic chants/songs/praise etc.
When creatives write and record their songs its based on experiences, the emotions of how they feel create the energy for the song and lastly the sounds they choose. Our brains receive info from the song, then transmits that to the rest of our body. Our bodies then respond. This is why when we listen to a trap song we can feel immersed in their life as if it were ours or we can start to feel unsafe.
If you have experienced trauma, this can activate a trauma response sending your nervous system into frenzy. If you are in survival mode, you may not even consciously be aware of how the song activated this. Studies have also shown how certain sounds (frequencies) respond negatively to our bodies causing health issues. When paired with intentional energy and words, this can be detrimental to our existence. On the flip side, using it intentionally can be healing (which means yes, you can shake your ass in the name of liberation).
Sounds create frequencies known as Hertz (Hz) that are vibrationally aligned to specific parts of our bodies. These hertz are known as the Solfeggio frequencies. Intentionally listening to these frequencies during everyday activities can heal your body at a cellular level. See the Hz list below:
The Chakra System
There are 7 chakras within the body. The chakra system originated in India and has since been adapted by the Western world and New Age Spirituality.
