Activating Chakras with Planetary Frequencies

Chakras organize the body on the physical level and allow life force to enter and be processed and expressed in the body. They are places where matter and consciousness come together, and energy is alchemically transformed from the psychophysical to the spiritual. The structure of each chakra contains a nucleus that concentrates or stabilizes the energy of the chakra, and a vortex that refracts consciousness outward. We think of the chakras as toroidal geometries expressing the vortex.
October Astrological Perspective – A Time to Harvest and Harmonize

Aloha! Thanks for being an incredible healing force of light and love in this world right now! This month, I am going to do things a little differently and offer some combinations and treatments that I feel will be valid and useful all month long. The astrological weather of October 2018 is very rich in movement and alchemy. I expect the month to be laborious yet rewarding, and hope some of these movements in sound and qi will assist you and those you work with in making the most out of this crucial moment!

Born in Rota, Spain and raised (mostly) in Oslo, Norway, Sylvia moved with her father, a devout capitalist who worked in shipping and investing, her mother, a stay-at-home mom, and her brother, who was into engineering and cars, to the U.S. at the age of 13. Within three years, she managed to get herself kicked out of several boarding schools and into the more important role (at the time) of traveling Deadhead—traipsing across the country on the heels of the Grateful Dead. Always into music, art, and space as a child and knowing that someday she wanted to do something that’d make a difference (to others, to the planet), she knew she’d end up having an impact at some point, she just wasn’t sure how. By the time she reached her late 20s, the how became clearer. Although she’d studied goldsmith-ing at the Rochester Institute of Technology and later earned her BA in anthropology and her BFA in art history from the University of Colorado, these were more avocations than life call-ings. Having experienced signifi
Autumn, The Metal Element And The Alchemist Archetype

The coming of Autumn provides a special opportunity to create resonance with the archetype of the Metal element. This archetype, the Alchemist, is the one who transforms and distils the baser vibrations into more refined expressions of energy. While the external alchemists of old were engaged in finding a process that turned lead (#82 on the periodic table) into gold (#79 on the periodic table), the masters of inner alchemy worked on a different level of refinement. Inner alchemists focused on the refinement of denser forms of physical reality into the higher frequencies of spirit. From the quantum perspective, this is the process of moving from particle to wave form reality.
A Self-Care Harvest

The fire energy of summer is settling down and the Metal energy of fall is here. The leaves are changing colors and letting go, returning to Earth. It is a time for gratitude for the abundance and great harvest we have in our lives. This is a great time to look at what burdens we have been carrying. Are they necessary? Is it time to be like a leaf and let them go of our old habits to create new ones. Here are some self-care tips to assist you in making these transitions. Happy Fall!
The Latest on Theresa Lee Morris, Senior Faculty

It’s not as though Theresa Lee’s life has changed dramatically since meeting (and then marrying) Will Morris several years ago. But it has changed.
Welcome to September: Tools for Healing the World

Welcome to September! Word of this mostly Virgo month is ingress, which is the movement of a planet from one sign into the next. Ingress derives of the Latin ingressus, to 'go in' or 'enter'. A chart is calculated for the moment of entry into a new sign. There are four taking place in September; they are Chiron, Venus, Mars and the Sun. We look at the ingress as a moment of ritual, contemplation, and possibilities.

Will Morris comes to Acutonics from his work at the intersection of medicine, astrology, and music. He has a history of using the astrological chart to select sound frequencies for the healing process, so the Acutonics approach was a perfect fit.
Self-Care for September Embracing the Earth and Metal Elements

We are in Late Summer the Earth Element and moving into Fall the Metal Element. To me, September has always felt like a great time for new beginnings. We have the harvest from late summer, the letting go energies of the Large Intestine and the inspiration of the Lungs. It is time to let go of what no longer serves us and get inspired to create something different in our lives and on Earth. Our bodies are the microcosm of the Earth and how we treat ourselves is how we treat the Earth.
The Greatness of Sedna

Sedna, discovered in November of 2003, is a planetary body whose energy and archetypal qualities have been embraced by astrologers, as a unique entity and by Acutonics as an integral part of our applied methodology.

"Acutonics ties together science, cosmology, biology, and psychology, while providing exceptional hands-on experience for practitioners. There is so much depth and new knowledge gained in every class, this work is deeply transformational. "
