Over the years, science and scientists have shown that everything is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. That being said, it is possible for frequencies to affect us and the physical world surrounding us.

Our bodies are made up of about 70% water, and water can be affected by the vibrations of sound and emotion. Therefore, it makes sense that musical frequencies could also alter our vibrational state.
Most of the music we listen to has been tuned to A=440 Hz since the International Standards Organisation (ISO) promoted it in 1953. However, when looking at the vibratory nature of the universe, it is possible that this pitch is not in harmony with the natural resonance of nature. Whether this is completely factual or not, many theories point to the benefits of tuning music to A=432 Hz instead. 432 Hz is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe and that it vibrates with the universe’s golden mean PHI and unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with the DNA code and consciousness.
Another theory states that the A=432 Hz tuning runs in line with the colour spectrum and the chakra system, although of course this will only resonate with you if you believe in the chakras to begin with.
So what does it actually feel like when you listen to 432 Hz music? Well, many music lovers and musicians have noted that it is not only more beautiful and harmonious to the ears, but it also induces a more spiritual experience that is felt within the body. It is also reported to seem to be non-local and can fill an entire room, whereas A=440 Hz can be seen as linear or directional. Here’s a little video example to show you more on this idea:
Obviously we can’t scientifically prove if any of this is true or not, but it certainly is an interesting subject and the guitar parts in the video above do appear warmer when in the A=432 Hz tuning. I guess now the only thing to do would be to test the hypothesis yourself. Maybe tonight smoke a spliff and experiment with your music frequencies. Happy listening.
