What Are the 7 Chakra Frequencies?

Chakra frequencies are vibrational frequencies connected with the seven primary chakras within the human body.

The frequencies, known as the Solfeggio Frequency, are a set of ancient musical tones that hold special significance in terms of healing and spirituality. 

The Solfeggio scale, initially used in Gregorian chants, dates back to the 11th century, although its roots may extend even further into history. This musical scale also found its place in the Indian Sanskrit chants.

The Solfeggio frequencies were later rediscovered in the 1970s with scientific studies finding evidence of healing properties and positive impact on the body.

Energy healers often associate these frequencies with the seven major chakras. Scientists later incorporated three additional frequencies into the Solfeggio system, solidifying their significance in modern healing and well-being practices.

These frequencies are often used in spiritual practices such as sound therapy and chakra meditation

Now, you might be wondering, how are specific frequencies assigned to chakras?

This is often determined through intuition, channeling, and metaphysical insights rather than empirical scientific data. Practitioners and teachers within the New Age and energy healing communities would meditate on or sense the vibrations associated with each chakra

The Chakras and Their Frequencies

The following frequencies are the ones that are most commonly attributed to each of the primary chakras.

Root Chakra Frequency: 396 Hz

Located at the base of the spine, the Root Chakra serves as a sturdy foundation for our being.

Symbolizing our primal instincts of security and survival, it aligns harmoniously with the first of the Solfeggio frequencies. Associated with the color red, the Root Chakra exudes a powerful influence over our well-being.

At its core, the Root Chakra vibrates at 396 Hz, often referred to as the UT frequency. This resonance beautifully embodies the very essence of grounding, stability, and security.

Moreover, it functions as a key, unlocking energy blockages and negative emotions such as anxiety, fear, and guilt. Ultimately, it propels individuals toward a more harmonious and balanced existence.

Sacral Chakra Frequency: 417 Hz

The Sacral Chakra is the source of your creative spark, sexual energy, and emotional equilibrium, and it’s located just below the navel. It is symbolized by the color orange which also represents passion. 

The Sacral Chakra aligns with the 417 Hz frequency, known as the RE frequency, and is associated with transformation and change.

Known as the “Undoing frequency,” it plays a vital role in healing, and is often used to help people transform their mindset and overcome past traumas.

Focusing on the 417 Hz frequencies empowers you to tap into your inner spring of creativity and navigate your emotions better.

Solar Plexus Chakra Frequency: 528 Hz

Nestled in the upper abdomen or stomach region, the Solar Plexus Chakra stands as the epicenter of personal empowerment and self-esteem. This chakra finds its synergy with the third note within the Solfeggio frequencies and is associated with the color yellow.

At the heart of the Solar Plexus Chakra lies the 528 Hz frequency, also known as the MI frequency. Revered as the “love frequency,” it harmonizes with qualities like self-acceptance, self-love, and self-worth.

This transformative frequency is often referred to as the “Miracle frequency” and is intrinsically tied to processes of rejuvenation and DNA repair.

Incorporating the 528 Hz frequencies into chakra healing practices can help to restore self-assuredness and boost inner strength. It actively nurtures self-love and cultivates a more positive self-image, clearing the path for self-discovery and personal development.

Heart Chakra Frequency: 639 Hz

As implied by its name, the Heart Chakra governs the realms of love, compassion, and emotional equilibrium. Positioned squarely in the center of the chest, this chakra is intrinsically tied to the color green and finds its healing frequency in the fourth note of the Solfeggio frequencies.

At a frequency of 639 Hz, also known as the FA frequency, it revolves around the overarching themes of connection and harmony. The harmonization of the Heart Chakra plays an indispensable role in nurturing both healthy relationships and self-love.

When you listen to the 639 Hz frequency you direct positive energy towards your heart space, helping you to access your inner love and compassion.

This frequency acts as a catalyst, enabling forgiveness, the mending of emotional wounds, enhancing communication, deepening understanding, and forging more profound connections with others.

Throat Chakra Frequency: 741 Hz

Located at the base of the throat, the Throat Chakra is the guardian of communication and self-expression, and it’s connected to the color light blue. Its healing potential aligns with the fifth note within the Solfeggio frequencies: 741 Hz.

Often referred to as the SOL frequency, The Throat Chakra frequency resonates with the themes of truth, inner wisdom, and self-expression. Engaging with the 741 Hz frequency opens a gateway towards enriching your communication skills.

It can help you on your journey of self-discovery, unlocking your inner wisdom and a profound sense of authenticity. This not only aids in overcoming obstacles related to self-expression but also encourages a deeper understanding of your own thoughts and feelings.

Third Eye Chakra Frequency: 852 Hz

Situated in the forehead, between the eyebrows, the Third Eye Chakra embodies the essence of intuition, insight, and higher consciousness. This chakra finds its alignment with the sixth note within the Solfeggio frequencies and is associated with the colors purple and dark blue.

Operating at the lowest Solfeggio Frequency of 852 Hz, known as the LA frequency in the Solfeggio system, it’s intrinsically linked to spiritual awakening, the expansion of human consciousness, and the clarity of thought. As the final note in the Solfeggio frequencies, it bears a unique significance.

When applied in chakra healing, the 852 Hz frequency becomes a catalyst for the self, enabling you to sharpen your intuition, deepen self-awareness, and establish a profound connection with your inner wisdom.

Additionally, some practitioners speculate that the Third Eye Chakra can be stimulated by the 852 Hz frequency, which is believed to open pathways to astral projection and enhance dream experiences.

Crown Chakra Frequency: 963 Hz

Positioned at the top of the head, the Crown Chakra is a gateway to enlightenment, spiritual awareness, and a profound connection to the divine.

It finds its affinity with the serene colors of white and violet and resonates at a frequency of 963 Hz, often celebrated as the frequency of the universe and unity.

By immersing oneself in the 963 Hz frequency, you can cultivate a profound sense of connection with the universe, acquire spiritual insights, and transcend the constraints of the ego.

In this way, the Crown Chakra serves as a gateway to higher states of consciousness, guiding you towards a sense of unity with the cosmos and unlocking the path to spiritual enlightenment.

Chakra Frequency Healing Methods

Chakra frequency healing methods are practices that use specific frequencies, sounds, and vibrations to balance and align the body’s energy centers or chakras.

  • Chant or play the corresponding frequency: Chant or play the exact frequency associated with the chosen chakra. 
  • Visualize and feel: As the sound resonates, visualize the chakra in question. Imagine it spinning, glowing, or opening up. Feel the vibrations of the sound connecting with the chakra’s energy.
  • Release and cleanse: Allow any negative energy, blockages, or emotional baggage associated with the chakra to be released and cleansed.
  • Proceed to other chakras: Repeat this process for each chakra you wish to work on, starting from the Root and ascending to the Crown Chakra using different sound frequencies. Each chakra has a corresponding frequency, and you can focus on one at a time.
