The Vitruvian Square | Sacred Music for Hallowed Doorways
Most of you know that my book, The Vitruvian Square: Discoveries in Divination, explains a very special way of looking at things, and people, and patterns. In this article I want to eagerly hand over to you a wonder-filled technique to easily intensify your use of The Vitruvian Square matrix, in general, and the distinct Places of Power that burn within that secure framework. So, today, we are going to create naturally irresistible and inherently seductive soundtracks for each of our Places of Power; music that, not only synchronizes with your understanding of each location within The Vitruvian Square, but that instantly calls forth for you all the elements of each Place of Power, each Plane of Existence, and each Axis of Influence.
I’ve written before about the obvious strength and ready vitality of music to summon up emotions, inner awakening, and memories. Music can seduce us, it can inspire us, and it can truly work magic – in other words, it can change the way we feel and see things in an instant! Imagine, then, how your experience with The Vitruvian Square will become even more unprecedented when you discover that there is a signature tune or song – for you – for each of The Vitruvian Square‘s Places of Power.
The whole idea behind finding your own, individual theme songs within The Vitruvian Square is to establish a congruent state of mind and an audible cue for each of the locations within our matrix. Your Vitruvian Square theme music can be used to underscore and even stimulate your current condition and state of development. Above all else, you want to establish theme songs that are significant to the importance of each of The Vitruvian Square’s 10 Places of Power.
So, how do you do this? It’s easy!
1. Look at each of the 10 Places of Power that comprise The Vitruvian Square. This includes the “0″ location.
2. Find a particular Place of Power that seems to call out to you, or just go in numerical order. Be haphazard, or be systematic. It doesn’t matter the order in which you complete this.
3. Once you have a starting place, ask yourself a variety of questions, like:
- How do the attributes or correspondences of this particular Place of Power make me feel?
- What is the true nature of this Place of Power for me?
- What is the rhythm I sense from this Place of Power? Is it upbeat or slow? Is it dramatic or whimsical? Is it serious or lighthearted?
4. Now, expanding on my prior discussion of Ancient Magic | Modern Tools™, look through your iPod songs and find just the right tune to link with the Place of Power you are working with. Which songs have just the right mixture of lyrics and melody that, when you hear them, instantly will link with the Place of Power you are focusing on?
5. Complete this exercise so that all 10 of The Vitruvian Square’s Places of Power now have a unique theme song.
6. Change your theme songs as new tunes make themselves known to you and if they seem more appropriate. It’s perfectly alright to refine your Vitruvian Square playlist from time to time!
If there is a particular musician or artist who inspires you, feel free to take his or her entire catalog of music and focus only on that for creating your Vitruvian Square playlist. The fact that you are using one performer can further intensify the overall meaning of the songs you use – kind of like a higher intention to the whole pattern.
There is, of course, another way to reach your final goal; make a list of your 10 favorite songs and then spend some time meditating on which one best fits in each of The Vitruvian Square’s 10 Places of Power.
