432 Hz Frequency & Cymatics

Posted on March 31, 2023 by Mindy Mellenbruch

What is special about 432 Hertz?

432 hertz is a frequency that some people believe has spiritual and metaphysical properties. It has been suggested that it resonates with the natural vibration of the Earth and has a harmonious and healing effect on the human body and mind. Mozart’s music was tuned to 432 hertz, as were the instruments unearthed in the pyramids.The priceless Stradivarius violins of the 17th Century, all aligned to 432 hertz, were said to almost mimic human voices. The singing bowls of Tibetan monks were also tuned to 432 hertz.

What are cymatics:

Cymatics is the study of visible sound and vibration. It involves the visualization of sound waves by placing a material, such as sand, powder, or liquid, on a vibrating surface and observing how the material responds to the vibrations. As the frequency of the vibrations changes, different patterns and shapes emerge in the material, creating a visual representation of the sound waves.

History of the Flute

Flutes have a rich and diverse history, with evidence of their use dating back over 50,000 years ago. They have been found in various regions of the world, including Germany, China, India, Egypt, South America, and North America. The transverse flute entered Europe through Byzantium and was depicted in Greek art around 800 AD. The Bansuri, made from bamboo, was sacred to the Hindu god Krishna.

In South America, panpipes made from bamboo or reed are popular, while flutes made from animal bones and other materials have also been found dating back thousands of years. These flutes were used in ritual ceremonies, festivals, and social events. The Native American flute, typically made from cedar or other types of wood, has played an important role in Native American culture for centuries. Flutes made from reeds were used by the Anasazi people of the American Southwest in both religious and secular contexts.

The flute has been used for both secular and religious purposes throughout history, with various cultures believing that playing the flute could cure physical and emotional ailments. Flutes were made from a range of materials, including bamboo, reeds, ivory, animal bones, and wood. The long and rich history of the flute shows that it has been an integral part of human musical tradition since prehistoric times, and continues to be an important cultural symbol for many communities around the world today.
