What Is a Power Song and Where Do I Get One?
Shaman Maggie Wahls
All Shamans have several power songs because the vibration of the notes in the voice and in the fourth chakra of the throat stimulate sympathetic vibrations in the universe to respond. Everything is connected. What you put out comes back to you. When a butterfly flutters his wings in Cost Rica the winds of Africa are stirred. And when a sound is offered, the universe responds.
Power songs are used in preparation for journeying, healing, offering Reiki, praying, grounding, for protection, for celebration, for solace, anytime you want to connect with the universe in this very special way.
To demonstrate the power of voice and musical notes I would like to you try this exercise.
The fourth chakra is the note FA as in Do Re Me FA. Find a piano and discover the sound of this note if possible. Or find your own closest approximation to it. It is important to find the sound of FA.
The fourth note or sound of FA is also the note of manifestation or creation upon this planet. So if we want to manifest healing, for example, we can send our intention out upon the note FA into the universe and healing will resonate with our voice of FA and become manifest where we are intending. It really is that simple.
Don`t try to complicate it like so many others have. This little simple secret is one that some people have paid thousands of dollars for. Some people have made millions creating musical tapes based on the sound of Fa, subliminal, holosync tapes that offer healing are based on the sound FA. But now you know how to do it yourself.
The visual symbol for the universe made manifest is the square. This symbolizes the power of thought and vibration becoming solid and material in this apparent world. So let s combine the sound of Fa with the visualization of a square.
Get yourself someplace comfortable where you will not be disturbed for a while. Close your eyes and visualize a square. Intone the sound FA and watch the square and see what image appears there.
You can also do this backwards
Shamans use this technique all the time. The last ingredient the Shaman uses here is desire or strong will. He or she really wants this healing to happen, they can really feel the wish, they put all their emotional energy into the intent.
I often get to dancing and rattling while I intone my power song and bring my whole body into the act of intending a healing for someone. The more feeling you put into it, the stronger the vibration.
Have you ever listened to a Native American song? There is usually one major tone for the song, isn`t there! Now you know why!
As a final thought, each note in the scale represents a unique vibratory pattern in the universe. You could do a study to find those out if you would like to know more about sound.
So you see the need for your own power song. Create one this week. it is usually just a line or two repeated over and over. You can use words or vowels or an imaginary language. As long as you create it with FA as your base and emotion and intent, it will be perfect. Power songs are usually kept private and seldom sung in public. The only time they are sung in public is when a group of Shamans have gathered to do a combined healing. It is your prayer to the universe.

Can a birthmark prove the Piano Man is Czech loner?Independent, The (London) , May 28, 2005 by Cahal Milmo
Klaudius Kryspin always expected that the ability of his quietly spoken friend, Tomas Strnad, to play Chopin and Liszt from memory for hours at a time would one day bring him fame.
After spending their youth challenging the Communist regime in then Czechoslovakia with their dissident music, the two drifted apart " until Mr Kryspin saw a picture this week of the gaunt and blond figure who has become known as the `Piano Man`.
The case of the silent patient, who has not uttered a word since he was found in dripping clothes on a Kent beach seven weeks ago, has garnered global publicity and dozens of suggested identities. But striking evidence " from physical appearance to the penchant of both men for playing the piano `beautifully` for long sessions without manuscript " added Tomas Strnad to the top of the list of potential names for the enigma, discovered in a dinner jacket, white shirt and tie from which every label had been cut.
At his parents` home in Prague, Mr Kryspin, the drummer in the Czech Republic`s most famous rock group, said: `When I saw the pictures of this lost man in Britain, I knew immediately that it was Tomas. My parents and brother all saw the photographs separately and reached the same conclusion.
`He was a fantastic, captivating player but always so quiet, so shy. When I saw the pictures of Piano Man on television, I thought, `Well, Tomas, you became famous at last`.`
The 38-year-old musician and his family were certain the willowy figure found wandering along a beach road on the Isle of Sheppey was Tomas, a man they described as a `lonely genius` who once captivated an audience of eminent musicians in a Prague concert hall with a solo performance.
Pictures of Mr Strnad, taken in 1983 and shown to The Independent, bear a striking resemblance to Piano Man. Mr Kryspin said he knew of a `physical attribute`, believed to be a birth mark, that has not been publicised and would prove he is Piano Man.
The behaviour of the unidentified stranger, who is in a secure unit in north Kent, has left health professionals flummoxed. All attempts to coax him into communication, including the use of interpreters from Poland, Lithuania and Latvia " but not the Czech Republic " have failed. He cowers when approached by strangers and is constantly anxious.
It is only when placed in front of the instrument that gave him his nickname, that the demeanour of Piano Man is transformed.
Within hours of his discovery he drew a sketch of a grand piano. He was then shown a piano in hospital and played without stopping for four hours. He continues to play in his room, delivering long renditions of classical pieces.
Mr Kryspin said he had met Tomas when both were teenagers in the early Eighties and formed a band, Ropotamo, which sought to emulate the anti- Communist pop group, Prazky Vyber (Prague Selection), censored by Czechoslovakia`s pro-Moscow regime.
After the fall of Communism, Mr Kryspin played for Prazky Vyber while Mr Strnad tried to carve out a career as a classical musician.
Mr Kryspin, who has contacted the West Kent NHS Trust with his friend`s details, said: `He organised a concert at a hall in the centre of Prague which was attended by many leading musicians and teachers. He played Chopin and Liszt from memory and the audience were wowed. But somehow it never happened for him.`
The West Kent NHS Trust said it was processing information from more than 900 calls from around the world. A source said: `We have to treat everything with caution but this information sounds promising.`
