This album provides a beautiful spoken word guided meditation on all the major chakras, using an imaginal ancient mountain as the foundation upon which to manifest groundedness, and feel supported by, and connected to nature through vibrational energy.
“The mountain is a powerful symbol in ancient traditions for the still containment of the vastness of existence. When you become like the mountain, you build peace and groundedness in your life and this extends to your relationships with others as well”. – Dr. Juliet Rohde-Brown
"There is a pulse, a rhythm that runs through everything – through the universe, through every living being, through all the elements. This natural rhythm is the vital force that gives us life; that creates union between all things. It is this pulse that I seek when creating healing music and tonal soundscapes". – Shantha Sri
Many people are familiar with the concept of the chakras and with practices that promote the activation and maintenance of energy movement through the body at particular vortex points for the purposes of enhancing wellbeing, healing, and brighter conscious awareness.
For those who do not yet have a strong understanding of the chakras, “Chakra Mountain” can be used as an introduction to this powerful tool for healing and self-understanding. Those who already use chakra meditations as a path to wellbeing will find that this guided visualization and the accompanying music and mantras can help deepen their practice.
Guided visualizations have been used in indigenous practices and spiritual traditions for millennia and have been adopted in integrative Western healthcare for at least the last 25 years. Visualizations have been proven to be effective in promoting relaxation, self-healing and psychological and spiritual insight.
The music of “Chakra Mountain” has been especially created by healing music yogi Shantha Sri (Sri Shanthi Bhavana), based on traditional Indian Ayurvedic healing principles that prescribe specific musical keys and frequencies, as well as chanted mantras, to help stimulate chakra awakening, toning and rejuvenation. Using various world instruments to produce resonant tonal frequencies and sparse cycling melodies, Shantha Sri’s music assists listeners by stimulating the mind toward higher states of concentration.
Most of the world’s traditions have sounds that accompany devotional or mind-focusing practices, and the use of sound is fundamental to Indian healing practices.
The mantras on “Chakra Mountain” are the traditional Ayurvedic sounds for chakra health rejuvenation. They are:
Root (Muladhara) Chakra – LAM; Sacral (Swadhisthana) Chakra – VAM; Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra – RAM; Heart (Anahata) Chakra – YAM; Throat (Vishuddha) Chakra – HAM; Third Eye (Ajna) Chakra – SHAM; Crown (Sahasrara) Chakra – OM;
During the visualization you may wish to chant along to the mantras to enhance your experience, or simply breathe in time to them to support a calm and peaceful energy that promotes healing and provides benefits to the entire body.
Manifest peaceful healing energy and enjoy “Chakra Mountain”.
Please Note: It is recommended that headphones or earbuds be used when listening to this album, in order to achieve the highest sound quality and enjoy the subtle tonal fidelity of the natural environment.
“May whatever merit flows from this creative work help to support the transition to Enlightenment for every sentient being”.
