One of 7 ancient solfeggios that vibrates in the 639Hz frequency of “Fa,” in yoga practices, fields the balance of the heart chakra: the center of self-love, compassion, relationships, and empathy. During meditation, it amplifies intention with sound. I like to think of it as retuning.
The songs on this mixtape aren’t tuned to 639Hz—they were probably recorded at standard Western tuning of 440Hz (432/444Hz if the band is hella conceptual and down with nature)—but they carry with them that sentiment. Some have been with me for years, others written by dear friends, and a few I’ve asked people to recommend for this mix about love.
In practice a yogi will tell you to imagine your favorite flower in the color green, placing a tuning fork emitting the solfeggio vibration on your chest while in Shavasana. When I visited the Integratron last year, the sounds affected us physically, reactivating and shedding pain from old injuries. I believe in the sonic capability, the sheer science of it.
Sometimes 639Hurts. So you listen through, retune for the new. These songs have really helped me, and I’ve been thinking of studying sound therapy to help others in their practice. This mixtape is a small start, including 1 minute bookends ringing with a 639Hz frequency. I hope you find something that you will love on this compilation.
