There are so many positive aspects to the four elemental tunings of the Koshi wind chimes that make them so uniquely potent, and most importantly make them an essential factor if you are considering your overall wellness and balance.
Firstly they are handcrafted by a small group of artisans at the base of the French Alps. The Koshi chimes are constructed using an outer eco friendly bamboo veneer casing (Feng Shiu wood element), they have an inner steel component (Feng shui metal element), they are tuned to the four elements – Earth, Fire, Air and Water (three more Feng shui elements). So from a feng shui perspective the Koshi chimes are very potent energetically.
Each chime has within its bamboo casing an inner steel construction of eight steel pins (from a numerology perspective the number 8 is the great karmic equaliser and first and foremost the number 8 is BALANCE).
Each Koshi tuning is crafted using a specific range of harmonic notes unique to that tuning – Earth’s notes are – GCEFGCEG, Water’s notes are – ADFGADFA, Air’s notes are – ACEABCEB and Fire’s notes are – GBDGBDGA.
These notes have been selected so as to give the most beautiful circular tonal range rich in harmonic overtones. (One of the most important facts (now this includes you) is about vibration and balance. Your body and all matter exists at different rates of vibration and each has its own resonant frequency. Some of these frequencies have positive influences on your lives, others can negatively impact your lives. Therefore, sound and its corresponding vibrational frequencies play a fundamental yet key role in our lives, affecting the harmonic balance of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.
Taking this one step further, if you are out of balance because of stress, worry, anxiety or frustration then you are in a state of imbalance or dis-ease. Long term these conditions are known to cause heart attacks, high blood pressure and in the most severe cases – death.
Now back to the Koshi chimes and their specific harmonic tones. We have seven main energy centres within our physical bodies, these are known as the seven chakras. Chakra is an ancient Hindu term referring to the specific location where we have energy concentrations. Each of these concentrations has amongst many others things a specific harmonic note and a specific colour.
So moving up from the base of our spine, the first of these chakras is known as – the root or base chakra, the second is the navel chakra, the third is the solar plexus chakra, the fourth is the heart chakra, the fifth is the throat chakra, the sixth is the brow or third eye chakra and finally the top energy centre is known as the crown chakra.
The notes of each of the chakras from the base chakra are – C base, D sacral, E, solar plexus F, heart chakra G, throat chakra A third eye and B is the crown chakra. Can you see where this is heading. If you look at the notes of each of the Koshi wind chimes and compare them to the notes of the seven chakras you will see that they match. Each Koshi wind chime has at least one of these chakra notes, all four Koshi chime tunings has them all.
The signifiance of this is, if any of your chakras are out of balance e.g not vibrating in the frequency of its specific note then you are in a state of imbalance. This may not seem a big deal, but medium to long term this imbalance can lead to physical and emotional symptoms. So the gentle and soothing tones of the Koshi wind chimes and their harmonic frequencies have a balancing effect on our entire bodies, our lives, our emotional, our physical and spiritual lives.
Another interesting consideration – if you follow your birth star and its role in shaping your horoscope and the course of your life you will be interested in the relationship between the four koshi tunings and their relevant birth signs –
Fire – Aries. 21 March – 20 April, Leo 24 July – 23 Aug, Sagitarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec.
Earth – Taurus. 21 April – 21 May, Virgo 24 Aug – 23 Sept, Capricorn – 22 Dec – 20 Jan.
Air – Gemini. 22 May – 22 June, Libra 24 Sept – 23 Oct, Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb.
Water – Cancer. 23 June – 23 July, Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov, Pisces 20 Feb – 20 March.
Another interesting consideration: Our bodies produce certain chemicals quite naturally according to our surrounding environment, our state of awareness or consciousness. When we are in a state of deep relaxation, rest, light sleep or are meditating the body produces specific pheromones. These pheromones move into our brain, and there create the Alpha and Theta brain frequencies.
Conversely the Alpha Theta brain frequencies can also be purposefully created through specific harmonic tones. This is another great benefit of the Koshi wind chimes. The harmonic frequencies of the notes within the Koshi chime tunings create through our subconscious the Alpha Theta brain waves. Here you can see that we are consciously choosing to create our own peaceful and calm reality simply by hanging the Koshi wind chimes in an area where their soothing and gentle tones can be heard. This has such an impact on our lives and the lives of others who hear them. And all of this magic is created naturally by the breeze.
This is why the Koshi wind chimes are increasingly being used in and around yoga and meditation centres, resorts, health care, early childhood and aged care, private homes, spas, retreats, sound healers, energy workers and Feng Shui practitioners.
