The Anchoring: Audio Visual Meditation by Anna Shelley

The Anchoring is an interpretation of what seems to be a growing global pattern: We are collectively increasing our awareness of our impact on our land and gravitating toward ancient practices from the many indigenous cultures of the Earth. By returning to these practices that help sustain our environment, we’re once again becoming honorable custodians of the Earth. You can hear this concept reflected in the high ambient cosmic melody, which gradually merges with a lower more earthy melody.

As with all my music, I improvised this in one take. All I did was set the intention of anchoring the new thought concepts with the ancient practices of the original custodians of our lands, and let the flute turn this into sound frequencies.

I set this music to the sri yantra image, which represents all of the elements of the concept of the music. The sri yantra represents merging of the cosmos and the Earth, the feminine and masculine, as within so without, and the concept of harmony that can be obtained when we accept all parts of ourselves and choose to see that we can create harmony through the dissonance of life.

The sri yantra is layered with a watercolor painting I did in which you can interpret the different layers and movement in alignment with the music and symbolism.
