MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
Franz Liszt 1811-1886
Is there more we should know
Sound of Modern Music?
"emotions of any kind are produced by melody
and rhythm; therefore by music a man becomes accustomed to feeling
the right emotions; music has thus the power to form character, and
the various kinds of music based on the various modes, may be
distinguished by their effects on character---one, for example,
working in the direction of melancholy, another of effeminacy; one
encouraging abandonment, another self-control, another enthusiasm,
and so on through the series."
Plato wrote in the Republic:
"Musical training is a more potent instrument
than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the
inward places of the soul, on which they mightily fasten, imparting
grace, and making the soul of him who is rightly educated,
Later he writes in the Republic about the
negative effects on society:
"The introduction of a new kind of music must
be shunned as imperiling the whole State: since styles of music are
never disturbed without affecting the most important political
"Through foolishness they deceived themselves
into thinking that there was no right or wrong in music -- that it
was to be judged good or bad by the pleasure it gave. By their work
and their theories they infected the masses with the presumption to
think themselves adequate judges ... As it was, the criterion was
not music, but a reputation for promiscuous cleverness and a spirit

Wm. House: In the beginning,
we were spiritual
beings, equally created and filled with Light . What we do with that
Light is our choice. We have free will. This Light courses through the
meridians and chakras as chi, light, fire and energy even filling the
spaces in blood molecules.
The major energy
centers are the chakras as seen below.
The Seven Chakras in Man
Third Eye (green)
Solar Plexus (purple)
Base of the Spine (white)
It is these seven energy
centers that get affected by the syncopation.
They are intended to be
spinning at different frequencies and are supposed to look like the pure
colors above. Our desires, wrong
behavior, thoughts, emotions and outside forces can alter the color and slow
down the spinning, even stopping the wheel of the chakras completely.
I hope to show that what is
actually happening is that the vibration and beat of discordant music sets
up a direction and flow of energy that passes through the chakras, creating
friction, simulating the spinning of these chakras and therefore,
making us feel good.
Our chakras are so sullied
by the vagaries of modern day life that we crave relief. Rock music
brings those chakras back to life but only for a moment. If we had the chakras above,
we would instantly recognize the assault upon our Light.
has done some revolutionary work on how water is affected by sounds,
words and music. He subjected water and water
crystals to different sounds, even swear words. Pure water looks like
a beautifully formed crystal, a unique pattern like a snow flake. Polluted water
looks like mud.
looking water turned to the intricate crystal pattern when prayed over or when classical music was played. When negative thoughts
or even words like 'Hitler' were used, it turned to an amorphous
non-descript glob. This same effect happened when
heavy metal rock music was played and can be seen at this link:
Miraculous Messages of Water.
Beautiful thoughts and sounds make beautiful
The energy rises
up and out, following defined pathways. Negative words and a syncopated
beat prevents the water from this growth and expansion. It's as if the
energy drives the water down, flattening the patterns pure water is intended
to out picture. What is
the beat doing to our light and energy centers?
These thoughts should lead us to think about our own bodies which are
made up of 72% water....and to think about how our words affect our own bodies.
Yes, what happens when we use negative expressions....
when we put into words doubt or fear or hate....when we say 'I can't'...
How much better it might be....would be...if we said often
'I Am of Child of the Light'
'I live in the Light'
'I love the Light'
'I am nurtured, protected and sustained by the Light'.
Think of a world where everybody lived in that positive consciousness
of Love and Light.
enlightened thinkers compare each soul to a crystal.
have unique patterns, colors and frequencies that make up our
spiritual body. We have greater
Light than plants and animals as God gives it to us to do with what we
will, for a short time. We can use it correctly or squander it. When that beat
rolls in, it presses the Light out and down, just as it did with the water
crystals. It goes down to the lower chakras rather than going back to God.
As it goes down, it's
passing through those sluggish chakras. The friction stimulates them. It
feels good even giving people the sense of power; but the real power comes
from God and is the pure Light of the chakras. The energy drops down to
that bottom, base of the spine chakra, creating an over-sexed society....but
that 'feels good' so it 'can't be that bad.'
And so the light is lost,
Light that would have fed
the other chakras on the way back to God. The Love in the heart could have
increased or the mind of Christ could have expanded with the opening of the
Here's a test.
Put yourself in a good
space. Wait till you're calm and attuned to the subtle vibrations of the spirit. Then listen to a traditional rendition of
the Star Spangled Banner by a famous Opera star like Robert Merrill
(he opens the Yankee games--)
I just had a thought, maybe that's the real reason they (the Yankees) have won so
often. It's not the money!,
Or listen to
someone else who sustains notes and sings it as it is supposed to be sung. You
can feel the power and majesty of the song. It is actually thrilling.
The thrill is not just
self generated, there is a movement of Energy (and light) as demonstrated
sustained notes, sung with power and, yes, even love or devotion moves molecules and unseen prana, odic forces, orgone
energy, chi, light, whatever you want to call
it; into pathways and invisible grids of sound rays that benefit all who hear or
feel the radiance emanating.
Now, today listen to one of the modern versions
sung at a championship game.
The singers add all sorts of curlicues
and ever changing notes at the end of words. Picture what happens to
the clay and sand formation above, or the shri yantra. It's
going to be a jangled, chaotic mess, kind of like a nightmarish picture of
modern art. There is a correlation.
People's emotional bodies are out
of whack for various reasons.
Their astral bodies may look like a Klee
painting or a Picasso. Therefore this type of music and
art resonates with them, so much so, they probably think I'm nuts. That's okay, some
will know what I'm saying here. The quest to contact the Divine
within and above, is a daily occurrence. It takes effort.
intended to aid that path.
The world and it's
ways loves a yo-yo. The string is let out. We learn advanced spiritual
techniques. We strive, do better, climb up the spiritual path of the world's
mainstream religions or the feel good philosophies of today's movements.
We stay at that plateau for awhile, feeling connected to God, to pure Love
and wanting to serve the Christ
But these paths
often lack a certain Spiritual Truth. That Truth
is the secret the vampires
of the Spirit do not want us to know.
They know how easy
it is to steal the Light. The string gets
jerked back. They pull on our chain. The Light
garnered in the chakras is lost in a fit of anger, a moment of lust, depression,
etc. Add the rock\rap beat to those emotions.
And there is the
perfect formula for keeping the populace dumb and happy while
sucking their Light and preventing them from becoming their true divine
The world wants us to be a yo-yo, to love
that rock and rap beat,
because as we all know, it feels sooo good.
Our thanks to you, William House

Now here is
another bit of information about Chakras....
sound. I do not know who wrote
Of The Chakras
Within each human
being lies the Power to affect change through the Power of
the spoken words, even a gentle whisper. The body's chakras or
Energy Centers, so closely intertwined with their corresponding
regions of the body, can be represented in sound, which parallels the
energy pattern of the chakras and is symbolic of their essences. These
unique sounds are the bija, or seed, mantras.
The mantras are
the one-syllable seed sounds that, when said aloud, activate the
Energy (Power) of the chakras in order to purify and balance the mind and
speak the bija mantras, you resonate with the Energy (Power) of the associated
chakra, helping you focus upon your own instinctive awareness of your
body and its needs.
OM is the most renowned and expansive of the bija mantras. It is the
mantra of assent and the Form of Creation, causing Energy to surge
upward and outward.
KRIM (pronounced as 'kreem') stimulates and transforms the lower
chakras, awakening and purifying the body.
SHRIM (pronounced 'shreem') is associated with the head and third eye
and, while promoting health, can be used to flood the senses with
delight and beauty.
HRIM (pronounced 'hreem') holds Creativity and healing Powers.
Speaking it has the Power to awaken and purify the heart.
HUM (pronounced 'hoom') destroys negativity and inspires vitality
throughout the body.
In traditional Hatha Yoga, the seven cleansing bija mantras associated
with the chakras are:
LAM for the earth chakra (1)
VAM for the water chakra (2)
RAM for the fire chakra (3)
YAM for the heart chakra (4)
HAM for the throat chakra (5)
AUM for the third eye (6)
AH for the crown chakra (7)
But the seed mantras, which are vessels
of a self-generating Power, are by no means truly rigid. The meaning of
each seed mantra can be subtly changed through their intonation and
the intention of those who speak them. When you chant the bija
mantras, either one at a time or in sequences most often beginning
with OM, your mind will be gradually become attuned to the mantras'
finer Frequencies until the Source Energy is reached and the mantra
becomes the seed of Spiritual Energy of the chakras.
Researchers in the field of medicine
have been conducting research into medical properties of music. While
in his or her mother's womb, a baby can develop a reaction to music.
Of the five human senses, human's ability to hear is the first one to
"be enlightened." Unborn babies in their mothers' wombs can listen to
the mothers' heartbeats, breathing, and talking. That's why modern
parents give their babies prenatal education, such as exposing
pregnant mothers to music. Clinically elegant and relaxing music helps
reduce stress levels, ease breathing and nourish the organs.
One American scientist discovered that
music is composed of waves of resonance, which can both influence
one's feelings and resonate with the human body. Meanwhile, music
contains a variety of rhythms, while our body movements tend to follow
musical rhythms. In consequence, changes of musical rhythms work to
accelerate and regulate our biorhythms. Hence, some capable doctors
would carefully select music of various rhythms to cure patients of
Many Spectacular performers have said
that their practices are really a process of cultivating their
hearts and minds. Positive feedback from audiences has been
received—"After watching your performance, my illness is cured."
Perhaps we should credit part of this miracle to music.
