Tantric massage music
In the ancient times tantras for the expansion of consciousness were written and taught, concerning every aspect of nature. Ancient texts describe 14,000 different tantras. Their subjects included the whole range of spiritual, psychic and material knowledge including the science of departed souls, palmistry, mathematics, music and healing.
Everything, including your mind and body, is in a constant state of vibration. Sound is a vibration that resonates with the soul, which can be felt in every cell of our body. Sound has the power to heal not only on a physical level but also on emotional and spiritual levels.
The seven energy centers in our body or chakras have their own frequency, and certain sounds have the vibrational power to tap into those chakra frequencies, and bring it into balance and harmony.
These sounds awaken a specific emotional state and wisdom within us — starting from the root into the pelvis, the solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown of the head.
Each of the seven chakras gets energized by seven musical notes C D E F G A B.
The root charais energized by C, navle chakra by D, solar plexus by E, heaert chakra by F, throat chakra by G, third eye by A and the crown chakra by B.
There are various musical instruments that resonate with each chakra. The root chakra is related to drums, tabla and musical instruments of similar kind, and the strong beats of these instruments awakens this chakra.
The navel chakra is activated by trumpets, pipes, electric guitar etc. Most of the organs related to this chakra are hollow like the female uterus and intestines, thus the instruments which use the modulation of wind are hollow as well and it awakens the sacral chakra.
The solar plexus is stimulated by string instruments like violin, guitar, cello etc. The solar plexus is the area which is surrounded with organs which have pouch like formation like the stomach, the liver, pancreas, thus the instruments which have a “belly” like violin and guitar, help in its activation.
The heart chakra resonates with softer string instruments like harp, piano, violin etc. This is the seat of love in our energetic body, and the instruments mentioned, invariably “play with the strings of the heart” and thus raise the energy level of this chakra.
The throat chakra, which is related to speech and expression of emotions, is energised by flutes and other wind instruments.
The third eye loves the sound of bells, chimes as the neurons in the brain react to these subtle sounds and get active.
The crown chakra is energized by the sound of a conch shell. Practicing music as a vocal or instrumental activity is a wonderful and effortless way to harmonize and heal one’s physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Amongst tribal cultures the calling of deities through drums and dances is a common ritual. These ceremonies utilise the beat of drums to induce a state of deep trance in which the individual expresses himself freely, unhampered by the usual neurotic inhibitions and personality blockages. In the process, great relief is gained and many psychosomatic symptoms magically disappear overnight.
The more primitive the psychic level, the more it is in tune with the bodily events that rule over it. Thus music becomes a means of communication with the physiologic processes which dominate the primitive ego. This is also why music and mantra are perhaps the easiest and simplest means of arousing the kundalini shakti, the divine, unconscious, spiritual power.
