Music And Chakras

Music And Chakras Are They Connected And How?

Your mind and body, as well as everything around you, are in a constant state of vibration.

Sound is a vibration that resonates with the soul and can be felt in every fiber of your body. Sound also has an amazing power to heal on a physical level as well as an emotional and spiritual one. 

The seven energy centers in our body are also referred to as the chakras, and they have their own frequency. Certain sounds have the vibrational power to tap into these frequencies and bring it into balance and harmony with the rest of the universe. 

Consequently, these sounds awaken a specific emotional state and wisdom within us, starting from the root into the pelvis, the heart, throat, solar plexus, third eye, and the crown of the head.

What are chakras?

What are chakras

The word chakra means “disk” or “wheel” in Sanskrit and refers to the energy centers in your body.

These disks or wheels of spinning energy correspond to certain nerve bundles and major organs. The chakras, however, need to stay open or balanced in order to function at their best. 

If they are blocked, you may experience physical or emotional symptoms that are connected to a particular chakra. Ultimately, there are seven main chakras that run along the spine. They start at the base of your spine and extend to the crown of the head. 

Lots of people believe that you have at least 114 different chakras in the body. However, there are seven main ones that are most often referred to, so let’s take a closer look at them. 

Root chakra

The Muladhara or root chakra is located at the base of your spine. Ultimately, it provides you with a foundation for life and helps you feel grounded and more capable of withstanding challenges. The root chakra is also responsible for your sense of stability and security.

Sacral chakra

The Svadhisthana or sacral chakra is located just below your belly button. The chakra is responsible for your creative energy as well as sexual energy. It’s linked to how you relate to your emotions as well as the emotions of others.

Solar plexus chakra

The Manipura or solar plexus chakra is located in your stomach region. It’s responsible for self-esteem and confidence as well as helping you feel more in control of your life.

Heart chakra

Anahata or the heart chakra is situated near your heart in the center of your chest. Therefore it should come as no surprise that the heart chakra is all about our ability to love and show compassion for others.

Throat chakra

Vishuddha or the throat chakra is located in your throat and has to do with your ability to communicate properly.

Third eye chakra

Ajna or the third eye is the chakra located between your eyes. Ultimately, it gives you the strong gut instinct that you get from time to time, and it’s responsible for intuition and is also linked to your imagination.

Crown chakra

Sahasrara or the crown chakra is located at the top of your head. It represents your spiritual connection to others, yourself, and the universe. It also plays a role in your life’s purpose. 

What Frequencies does each chakra have?

Each frequency in the solfeggio scale maps or corresponds to a specific chakra as follows:

  • Root Chakra: 396 Hz: 
  • Sacral Chakra: 417 Hz: 
  • Solar Plexus: 528 Hz: 
  • Heart Chakra: 639 Hz: 
  • Throat Chakra Healing: 741 Hz: 
  • Third Eye Chakra: 852 Hz: 
  • Crown Chakra: 963 Hz: 

The chakras are basically the body’s energy ecosystem, and when this ecosystem is out of alignment, the emotional and physical being is negatively affected.

However, the good news is that there is a wide range of healing techniques from meditation to music and massage as well as Reiki to help unblock the chakra ecosystem.

While these are the frequencies associated with each chakra, it’s important to that there may be some overlap. For example, 528 Hz is also known as the love frequency and is therefore often linked to the heart chakra as well.

Solfeggio frequencies often overlap in terms of benefits, so listening to one frequency may also offer some of the benefits of the other.

Chakras and Instruments

There is a long list of instruments that are likely to affect the listener’s body and especially the chakras. Here are some of them: 

The heart center involves our experience of compassion and love. The instruments that affect the heart area include the English horn, string orchestra, French horn, Viola, and the high range of the cello.

Sacral and abdominal chakra centers include areas like the diaphragm, belly as well as emotional and psychic center. The instruments that directly affect this lower part of the body include cello, drums, bassoon, trombone as well as tuba, and other low instruments.

The throat involves communication and creative expression. The instruments that affect the throat are the clarinet violin, and oboe.

The brow center or third eye is the home of perception and insight and instruments in this area include the bow, flute, and trumpet.

Crown center where people expedient spiritual connection and bliss. And the instruments responsible for affecting the crown center are crystal bowls, high-pitched sounds as well as tingling bells. One of the most incredible instruments found for the crown chakra is the SongPod. 

Instruments that affect the entire body have the widest range of sounds, and some of them include the concert harp, piano, guitar, symphony orchestra as carefully voiced synthesizers. 

The harp has a purist tone because of the way the strings are set with one note string. This instrument vibrates throughout the entire human organism and creates perfect overtones.

The piano affects the entire body because of its range. Due to its tautness and thickness of the strings, it doesn’t create perfect harmonics like the harp. 

The classical guitar resonates with the body from the belly to the crown, especially the belly, solar plexus, and heart.

How to balance your chakra with music and tones

chaka balancing


When it comes to balancing your chakras using music, it’s not hard to do. Just as a color has a frequency, so too does sound. Consequently, our energy centers resonate to specific musical notes.

So listening to music in the below-mentioned notes help to stimulate a particular energy center, and classical music is the best for this task.

Root = C, Sacral = D, Solar Plexus = E, Heart = F, Throat = G, Third Eye = A, Crown = B


To stimulate and balanced energy centers, it’s possible to even use your own voice to create tones. So place your hands on the energy center that feels out of balance and begin to sound your deepest possible tone.

You should gradually get higher in pitch as you go. Intuitively, you will know which pitch is correct for you as you begin to feel the center getting lighter and responding to that tone. Continue using the tone throughout the day or week until you feel more balanced.

Using Vowels to Balance Chakra

Vowel sounds

vowel sounds

In addition to musical annotations and tones, there are various vowels which help in the process of chakra healing.

These vowels contain different frequency waves, and the frequency of the vowel matches the frequency of a particular chakra, thereby stimulating chakra. You can choose to practice these files individually 

When doing it individually, it can help to synchronize your energies, and when doing it with a partner, it can bring balance and harmony into your relationship.

So if practicing by yourself, use your natural tone and pitch and produce the sound; for example, if the heart chakra is the focus of healing, you have to make the found “AH”. So take a deep and while exhaling, make the sound “AH” as long as you can. So ultimately, it should sound like a long “AAAAAA… HHH”. 

In a similar manner, you can practice other vowels as well. You should sit comfortably cross-legged on a carpet or yoga mat or sit in a chair if sitting on the floor is not possible.

The thing to be kept in mind is that the spine must be erect, and the shoulders must be relaxed so that your posture is stable. Also, make the sounds with a gentle voice and don’t strain.

Additional ways to balance your chakra

When it comes to choosing what kind of color to wear, you should allow your own intuition to guide you. Energy centers all contain a specific frequency that resonates with the colors that carry a similar frequency.

So if you’re not feeling secure or grounded, it may be a root chakra is not in balance with the rest of your energy centers. This would be the time when you feel drawn to wear red. Irrespective of whether it is an outer layer of clothing or underwear, it will help filter the color that you need to help you adjust the balance of the energy center.


You should also adjust your diet to taking more for the same color of the chakra you’re trying to balance. Using this chakra as an example once again, so you should try adding more red-colored foods to your diets, such as radishes, tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, and pomegranates.

Essentials Oils

Essential oils also have the capability to resonate a specific frequency and can be utilized to balance chakras. They can be applied directly or by inhaling it. Always ensure that it is applied directly to the skin and that it is sufficiently diluted with a suitable carrier oil.


Possibly the most powerful of all is visualization. Sitting in meditation, visualizing drawing up energy from the center of the earth and cleansing each energy center using the relevant color, sound, and frequency works.


So when you make a decision or commitment to creating a balanced and healthy chakra system, you are, in fact, making a commitment to holistic and ultimate health.

Your chakra system holds within it your ancestral records, your beliefs about yourself and your power, your relationship history, and your connection to the divine. 

So the well-being of your chakras is therefore directly related to your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. So when you consciously work with your chakra and choose to balance the energy and optimize the programming, you can literally change your own energy. 

When you are healthy, you vibrate on different frequencies energetically. This new frequency or vibration can, in turn, attract to you wonderful new situations, opportunities, and people into your life.
