How to Use Music to Balance Your Chakras

We all know that balancing and maintaining our chakras’ health is crucial to our mental and physical well-being.

When your chakras are out of whack, it can be hard to concentrate on your chores and projects – unbalanced chakras make it difficult for you to appreciate the beauty in your life and focus on the positive.

But it can be hard to stay on top of our chakra balancing practices, especially during such a challenging year as this. And an activity like balancing the chakras should induce feelings of joy and balance, not add stress to your already heavy load.

Why not try having some fun with your chakra work?

In addition to the many ways to balance your chakras, such as crystal healing and meditation, listening to music can also wash over your chakras with a sense of peace and happiness.

You see, every note on the musical scale corresponds with a certain chakra within the body, meaning that doing something as simple as listening to your favorite song can infuse your body with positive, uplifting energy that will leave you feeling refreshed.

So, if you’re ready to learn more about how music connects to and affects the chakras, keep reading to find out how to let the musical scale work for your body and mind!

Are you just starting when it comes to learning about chakras? We’ve got you covered with The Beginner’s Guide to Understanding Chakras.

How Does Music Connect to the Chakras?

Chakras are points of energy within the body – they’re basically sources of certain vibrations that radiate within our bodies, creating certain emotions, feelings, and sensations.

Musical notes are also essentially vibrations that create a sound that our ears process, synthesizing that information and turning it into a song.

The connection begins within these vibrations – each chakra in the body corresponds to a note on the musical scale – meaning that when you encounter or hear that particular note, it energized and clears that chakra.

Let’s take a look at each chakra and their corresponding musical notes:

Now that we know which notes connect to which chakras, we can explore more about the kind of healing you can provide your chakras through musical activities!

How to Balance the Chakras With Music

You can use music in many ways to balance your chakras. One of the easiest ways is to simply listen to a certain song or album, but it might be more fun to create music of your own!

Playing an Instrument

Have you ever wanted to learn a new instrument, like guitar or piano? Learning to play a musical instrument can be beneficial in many ways. For instance, if you’ve had a stressful day and you need to unwind, you can pick up your ukulele and strum your favorite song.

Music has more healing properties than we know, far beyond the healing that it provides the chakras. Writing a song about a heavy or challenging experience can help you work through those emotions – and as a bonus, you have your own work of art to show for it.

Plus, if you’re just starting out and you want to incorporate an instrument into your chakra healing work, all you need to learn are seven chords – F, E, D, C, B, A, and G. These are the chords that connect to the chakras. You might be surprised to learn how many songs you can cover with only these chords in your repertoire.
