The Colors Of The Wind
The wind whistles, roars and purrs. It teases, soothes, or rips us with cold stabs to match its winter song. Poetic? Yes, but literally and subtly true.
As the speed of the wind increases, its pitch rises. A diminishing breeze sings a corresponding lower tone. When the wind dances, its movement speeds up, creating musical glissandos, with its pitch gradually changing like the howling of a wolf.
You hear the wind and feel it caressing your skin. It plays with you, as if it is keeping you company. Notice how the air makes you feel. We all experience music that stirs our feelings. Likewise, listening to wind choirs strums your emotions, producing tiny nuances and subtle feelings.
Your Body Has Sound Sensors
Your body has sensors in the skin, in which you literally and subtly intake sound, and yes, even the gentle purr of the wind. The wind is inescapable.
Energy from sound can transfer to many things, each with correlating frequencies. This happens all the time. Think to the emotive qualities of a movie track. The sound and music animating the film orchestrates our feelings. This is due to resonance, a phenomenon in which a vibrating force (such as sound) drives something else (such as emotions) to increase its vibrations. Wind sounds also affect your emotions via resonance.
Sounds and colors are related. The cycles per second of colored lights, taken down musical octaves, correlate to musical notes. Through resonance, the energy from a colored light causes its corresponding musical note to increase its vibrations. Native American Indians believe that the wind colors the sky. Literally, it does.
Can’t Tell What Color The Wind Is?
Colors correlate to emotions, as one may intuitively feel. Blue lights create a chilling feeling, while red ones emanate warmth. We even hear this in our language. Common examples include: “I was blue today.” “He is red with anger.” “She was green with envy.”
Imagine the colors of the wind! Some days a blue breeze helps us grieve, touching our sorrow to gently pull it out. When the hum of the wind is red, it is enlivening, fortifying and energizing. The green airstream bestows healthy well-being and stability. It assists in relieving anxiety. Can’t tell what color the wind is? Notice your feelings as you experience the breeze that tenderly exchanges energy with you. Its different sounds correlate to musical notes and colors. This literally strikes chords within you.
Consider spending a day on a computer and recall how flat and dull it made you feel. Unseen electronic energy waves subtly drain health. Contrast that with a walk in the woods or even just enjoying the friendly trees lining the street. Nature, and yes, her melodious voice — the wind — sings us vitalizing melodies.
Ingesting The Wind
Windmills harness the wind’s energy on a large level. On a smaller scale, the wind creates sounds, which you ingest. The wind’s gliding tones contain juicy little frequencies that your body loves. You don’t hear these tones in musical scales. There can be countless frequencies in between some of the smallest intervals that we hear in music. Our bodies need all these rarely heard frequencies for balance and health. Our friend, the wind, softly sings these invigorating and healing mini-tones.
The wind has many musical tools that it uses, in addition to musical pitches. The weather affects tiny nuances of the music of the wind, as it holds moisture and smog. Moist winds sound different than dry winds, creating characteristic sensations. It’s like listening to the same song played by a trumpet versus a violin. Music created by a violin sounds different than the same music performed with a trumpet – due to the instrument’s harmonics. The wind creates pitches with its speed and can puff and slow down, creating free-form rhythms, but each pitch has a distinct harmonic after-ripple of sound, depending on the degree of moisture.
The wind and me? We are chums — singing our song together like old friends. The wind sings to me. I sing back to the wind; she listens. The wind takes my song and spreads the harmonies so they intermingle with animals, plants and all kinds of things. Most wondrous of all, the wind colors my moods and outlooks, with splashes of rainbow energies, literally painting vitality into my life.
