The Healing Energy of 432Hz,
The Tone of Nature
A=432 Hz, known as
Verdi's 'A' is an alternative tuning that is
mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432Hz
transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of
math fundamental to nature.
According to Brain T. Collins, a musician and researcher, the
standard pitch (A=440 Hz) does not harmonize on any level that
corresponds to cosmic movement, rhythm, or natural vibration.
The greatest musicians, such as
Mozart and Verdi, based their music on the natural
vibration of A=432. It's true that it is only 8 vibrations per
second different from the standard tuning, but this small difference
seems to be remarkable to
our human consciousness.
There's a growing musical and metaphysical movement for recovering
optimal integrity in the music industry and spirituality through the
In April 2008 Dutch journalist
Richard Huisken founded the 'back to 432 Hz' committee, claiming
that this original tuning was used in ancient cultures and is found
on antique instruments like the Stradivarius violin.
According to Richard Huisken, music tuned to 432 Hz is softer
and brighter, giving greater clarity and is easier on the ears.
Many people experience more meditative
and relaxing states of body and mind when listening to such music.
The natural musical pitch of the universe gives a more harmonic and
pleasant sound than 440 Hz.
432 Hz seems to work at the heart chakra, "the feeling", and
therefore could have a good influence on the spiritual development
of the listener. Some people who are not able to distinguish the 8hz
difference claim they can feel the music warmer due to the longer
Because 432 Hz gives a greater clarity than 440 Hz, there's less
need to play it as loud as 440 Hz.
This means less hearing damage, as long
as you put the volume not too high. Furthermore there's also less
noise pressure. Researchers and musicians, such as Coreen Morsink
(pianist and music teacher), report that they feel calmer, happier
and more relaxed when playing music at 432Hz.
Music based on this natural tone is more transparent, more marked,
gives an obvious musical picture and the overtones and undertones
moves more freely. Music based on 440 Hz represents stuffed emotions
and blocked energy. By lowering the pitch by just 8 Hz, you became
more flexible and spontaneous.
The 432 Hz tuning releases your energy
and takes you into a beautiful state, where relaxation is natural.
Where does it
According to Ananda Bosman, international researcher and
musician, archaic Egyptian instruments that have been unearthed are
largely tuned to A=432Hz. Ancient Greeks tuned their instruments
predominantly to 432Hz.
Within the archaic Greek
Eleusinian Mysteries, Orpheus is
the god of music, death and rebirth, and was the keeper of the
Ambrosia and the music of transformation.
His instruments were tuned at 432Hz.
Guiseppe Verdi, an Italian
composer, placed A exactly at 432 Hz. He did this because this
tuning is ideal for opera voices.
Jamie Buturff, sound researcher,
found out that some Tibetan monks used this tuning in their
hand-made instruments. He put a CD with Tibetan singing bowls into
his player and used a
Korg tuner to discover that the
bowls were all harmonic to the 432 music scale.
This musical tuning can be found throughout various religions and
cultures of the ancient world. It seems that implementing it into
the musical instruments was a good choice.
Even today, many musicians report
positive effects from retuning to 432 Hz, such as better audience
response and a more laid-back feel to their performances.
Why the modern
world forgot about this tuning
This is because in 1885 it already had been decided that A at 440 Hz
had to be the standard tuning. A year earlier, Guiseppe Verdi wrote
a letter addressed to the Music Commission of the Italian
In the letter he writes:
"Since France has adopted a standard
pitch, I advised that the example should also be followed by us;
and I formally requested that the orchestras of various cities
of Italy, among them that of the Scala [Milan], to lower the
tuning fork to conform to the standard French one.
If the musical commission instituted
by our government believes, for mathematical exigencies, that we
should reduce the 435 vibrations of French tuning fork to 432,
the difference is so small, almost imperceptible to the ear,
that I associate myself most willingly with this."
Unfortunately, the great composer was
unsuccessful in his attempt.
The American Federation of Musicians
accepted the A440 as the standard pitch in 1917. Around 1940 the
United States introduced 440 Hz worldwide, and finally in 1953 it
became the ISO 16-standard.
There is a theory that the change from 432Hz to 440Hz was dictated
by Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels. He used it to
make people think and feel a certain manner, and to make them a
prisoner of a certain consciousness.
The Joseph Goebbels theory is
certainly interesting, but the true reason of the shift to 440Hz is
still not clearly explained.
Before 440Hz became the standard, a variety of tunings were used.
The controversy over tuning still rages, with proponents of 432Hz
claiming it as being more natural than the current standard. Because
of that, the "back to 432Hz" committee wants to get people
acquainted with its qualities, and therefore hopes that the industry
will change the musician standard.
However, changing the current standard won't be a simple task, and
it's not because of the influence of any nefarious organization.
In my opinion, the reason is more
trivial. Most musical instruments can be adjusted in principle, but
it's not so easy for every instrument. For example, most woodwind
instruments cannot play in 432Hz because changing the pitch will
also change the internal harmonic structure of the whole instrument.
The change would require building new

This musical pitch is connected to the numbers used in the
construction of a variety of ancient works and sacred places, such
Great Pyramid of Egypt.
It's also more friendly for your ears.
For many people, it is nicer for hearing - softer, brighter and more
beautiful than music in 440 Hz.
432Hz is based in nature and therefore it generates healthy effects
among the listeners. It brings natural harmony and balance of the
3rd dimension and connects you with a higher consciousness. The pure
and clean energy of 432Hz removes mental block and opens a way to a
more fulfilling life.
Many ancient instruments are adjusted at 432Hz. It is because the
ancients knew that this tone is closely related to the universe
around us. Don't throw away their knowledge.

432Hz is waiting to be discovered by you.
