"There was plenty to love. Not only the birds out my window every morning—and again, right around sunset, when whole flocks of them swept across the lake just above the surface of the water to wherever it was they’d bed down for the night. There were the sunrises, and equally wonderful, the sunsets, and the starry skies that came after them and the first bite of a mango fresh from the tree, the murmuring voices of the fishermen out on their cayuco boats with the first light of day, winding strips of tul grasses around the bodies of the crabs they caught—still alive—so they couldn’t crawl away, or bite.
There was even a word assigned in the language here, for this particular time of day, just after the sun first showed itself over the volcanos, but before the world was fully illuminated. Madrugada.
Where else would there be a place where the people had given a name to a particular angle of morning light?"
An excerpt from The Bird Hotel, by New York Times bestselling author Joyce Maynard.
Woven into this track is a Solfeggio Frequency at 417 Hz. It is said that the 417 Hz frequency produces powerful vibrations that have a healing effect on the brain. It marks the start of new beginnings and is thought to be able to undo negative happenings. Each of the original Solfeggio Frequencies can be linked to a specific Chakra or source of energy in the body. The 417 Hz frequency relates directly to the Sacral Chakra, located just below the navel.
I was first introduced to Music Therapy in 2007, though it wasn't until 10 years later, I learned about Solfeggio frequencies through my work with a music for mental wellness organization. I deeply believe in it, and it's more science than magic.
