On January 29, 2009 I was watching the Oprah Winfrey show, with Susan Somers as the guest of the show to discuss her intake of hormones as a remedy for menopause. She talked about the various hormone pills she had to take to be able to go through the day.
As I watched the show the thought came to my mind that there is a spiritual remedy for the hormone imbalance taught to the initiates of the mystery schools. It is known among mystics that every sound is related to a color, and a nerve center of the human nervous system. Particularly, vowel sounds are related to the seven chakras or glands in the human body which secrets hormones into the body. It seems menopause is a condition of a deficiency of hormones in the female body as they approach a certain age. As such, as a recommendation a person can use new age music and vowel sounds to stimulate the secretion of hormones into the body.
The Rosicrucian Order (Amorc), encourages their members to chant vowel sounds as a form of spiritual body tune up regularly. I will recommend the music of a few new age artists such as Ken Nunoo, The WORD vol. 1,sounds of nature, meditations, energies of mind, chant of the first flame,Chant of the second flame,Chant of the third flame, as well as some of the music of Kitaro, Vangelis, and Yanni.
As ridiculous as it may sound, the female approaching menopause may incorporate the intonation of vowel sounds in their daily routine to assist in the stimulation of hormones into the body. I am not allowed to disclose the vowel sounds used by the Rosicrucians, but they have a vowel sound for each of the seven centers or gland stations of the human body. A simple chant I will recommend is from the word ELOAHUM. Which is intoned as EEE-LOO-AAA-HUUM. The music of this chant is titled Chant of the first flame, by Ken Nunoo which can be downloaded at Chant of the first flame. The method of intoning this chant is given in the book The Seed Master, by Ken Nunoo. The Chant of the first flame is also the music video Ken Nunoo & Friends (piano lessons 1)
You may read more about the use of sound as a spiritual body tune up in The Book of Sound, within the book The Trinity of Lights, by Ken Nunoo
I hope this insight into music, vowel sounds and women’s menopause has been helpful.
The following information about the seven chakras is from the wikepedia.. the Chakras are the gland centers of the human body.
The crown chakra is generally considered to be the chakra of pure consciousness. Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. The thalamus is thought to have a key role in the physical basis of consciousness. Symbolized by a lotus with one thousand petals, it is located at the crown of the head. Sahasrara is represented by the colour violet and it involves such issues as inner wisdom and the death of the body. Sahasrara's inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with "beingness".
The Brow Chakra
Ajna (along with Bindu, also known as the third eye chakra) is linked to the pineal gland which may inform a model of its envisioning. The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and awakening. Ajna is symbolised by a lotus with two petals, and corresponds to the colour white, indigo or deep blue. Ajna's key issues involve balancing the higher & lower selves and trusting inner guidance. Ajna's inner aspect relates to the access of intuition. Emotionally, Ajna deals with clarity on an intuitive level.
(Note: some opine that the pineal and pituitary glands should be exchanged in their relationship to the Crown and Brow chakras, based on the description in Arthur Avalon's book on kundalini called Serpent Power or empirical research.)
The Throat Chakra
Vishuddha (also Vishuddhi) may be understood as relating to communication and growth through expression. This chakra is paralleled to the thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation. Symbolised by a lotus with sixteen petals. Vishudda is characterized by the color light or pale blue, or turquoise. It governs such issues as self-expression and communication, as discussed above. Physically, Vishuddha governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security.
The Heart Chakra
Anahata, or Anahata-puri, or padma-sundara is related to the thymus, located in the chest. The thymus is an element of the immune system as well as being part of the endocrine system. It produces the T cells responsible for fending off disease and may be adversely affected by stress. Anahata is symbolised by a lotus flower with twelve petals. (See also heartmind). Anahata is related to the colours green or pink. Key issues involving Anahata involve complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well being. Physically Anahata governs circulation, emotionally it governs unconditional love for the self and others, mentally it governs passion, and spiritually it governs devotion[
The Solar Plexus Chakra
Manipura or manipuraka is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. Manipura is believed to correspond to Islets of Langerhans, which are groups of cells in the pancreas, as well as the outer adrenal glands and the adrenal cortex. These play a valuable role in digestion, the conversion of food matter into energy for the body. Symbolised by a lotus with ten petals. The colour that corresponds to Manipura is yellow. Keys issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth
The Sacral Chakra
Swadhisthana, Svadisthana or adhishthana is located in the sacrum (hence the name) is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormones involved in the reproductive cycle. Svadisthana is also considered to be related to, more generally, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The Sacral Chakra is symbolized by a lotus with six petals, and corresponds to the colour orange. The key issues involving Svadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Svadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm
The Base Chakra
Muladhara or root chakra is related to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality. This centre is located in the region between the genitals and the anus. Although no endocrine organ is placed here, it is said to relate to the gonads and the adrenal medulla, responsible for the fight and flight response when survival is under threat. There is a muscle located in this region that controls ejaculation in the sexual act of the human male. A parallel is charted between the sperm cell and the ovum where the genetic code lies coiled and the kundalini. Muladhara is symbolised by a lotus with four petals and the colour red. Key issues involve sexuality, lust and obsession. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security.
