Meditating Man

Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul. - Marcus Aurelius



432 Hz Music


If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration. – Nikola Tesla


Everything in our universe vibrates! Light, atoms, electricity, and electromagnetic waves all consist of vibrations. Even the earth vibrates. All sound comes from vibration and the pitch of a tone is determined by the frequency of the vibration as measured in cycles per second (vibrations per second) or hertz (abbreviated Hz).

Traditionally, music is tuned to the frequency of 440 Hz for A4 (middle A, on a piano). All other notes are multiples of 440 Hz. Our body and mind consist of an electrical systems that vibrates and there's a theory that our natural frequencies resonate better with music that is tuned to slightly different base frequency of 432 Hz.

The theory behind 432 Hz music is that it is a frequency that is more harmonious with the natural resonance of the universe and that it has a positive effect on the listener. Some proponents of this theory claim that music tuned to 432 Hz is more relaxing and can even have therapeutic properties.

Several studies have shown that relaxing with music tuned to 432 Hz can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and enhance relaxation. The 100 Breaths meditation music is tuned to 432 Hz.
