# Remarkable connections between Music and the Flower of Life

Way back when I first published the Spirit Science lesson “Math of God”, one young lad came to me and told me he was working on figuring out some intriguing ways of fitting music into the flower of life. The images he came up with are right here.

(Click the image to see a full size version of it)

and this

Then just the other day, someone else contacted me saying that they had taken these above diagrams and figured out new ways of working with it. This is what he came up with, and his description below.

“Basically I kept your friends first flower the way it was but changed the outer petals joining up the Root notes. Whether your friend had a concept to his diagram or it if they were just the set basics either way I incorporated my own concept into it

My concept being the notes located in the middle of each circle are either a Major or Minor Key signature for example the the first key signature being A major. I didn’t write major in there because its a simple musician rule that the symbol for major is just the note example being “A” then the symbol for minor is a small “m” example being “Cm” but anyway back to the point.

The key signature being in the middle and the petals around it are the notes within the key signature for example; The key signature of A major has the notes A,B,C#,D#,E,F# and G#. Today I did want to carry on but after I blew my own mind last night doing that, I went into meditation (advised by a friend) and while I was in meditation something said to me “This is all you can do…… for now”. So I’m giving it to you like this in hopes that someone can pick it up and be like …… AH!”

-Mitch Doukenn

Tom Cassella posted HIS updates as well on the Spirit Science Facebook Page. He writes..

“you can make any chord out of this, major, minor, diminished, augmented, dominate 7, major 7; the center of each flower is a note and the pedals are the intervals between each note. the pedals either have a “M” for major 3rd “m” for minor 3rd “5″ for a perfect 5th”

Hey,

dear mitch doukenn (I hope you posted this)

Your Graphics look very nice and colorful; but (i think) they do not make any sense in a musical way of understanding; To Use it as a composition Technique is fine, as this is your choice, but they do not solve problems like the “pythagoras comma”, or progression in tension and so on.

The scale of the piano manual does not cover these questions. You would also have to go into questions of microtonality and tuning as well.

So all in all, this is not a connection between major and minor scales with a vector-equilibrium or vortex-field nor does it give you a base do establish a musical system, which gives you a lot of plurality.
So I want to know where is the connection between these two elements?

Here is an interesting webside, which can give you some insight in historic music (of central europe), although it is in German:

Actually, his theories cover most of the usual questions, and can even be applied to folk music of other continents than america and europe.

best regards, julian

Hi Julian,
I drew the bottom picture on 9-13-11 and have updated information all about the Flower of Life and Music, and I call it the Flower of Music. It is flawless and have created a whole method on how to compose and transpose with it. It is based on Pythagorean intervals. You can see it at my facebook https://www.facebook.com/CassellasFlowerOfMusic?ref=br_tf or my website http://tomfom.com/

When Jordan gets back to me I will give him all the updates for this page. I am willing to answer any questions on this subject

Sincerely, Tom Cassella

@Ophir:
How do you shift the intervals to The Pythagorean Tuning with your app?
Regulat Music has chomatic intervalls…

Just detuning it 8 Hz wont make it Pythagorean tuned music.

2. Lynn says:

@Ophir ; did you create that app yourself ?

3. Will says:

432 does nothing unless you listen to the pure tone. its a waste of time ‘converting your music’ for a start, nothing about the music you listen to is 440 hz except the note A. singular. end of point. don’t waste your time.

2. Doug says:

Jordan… I started watching your Spirit Science videos about a year ago – totally fascinating stuff!!! Looking forward to more of the SS videos soon!

3. Nikhil says:

But how is one supposed to begin and know where to put each note?
How can one be so sure that A is the center of the Flower? Why not any other note?

1. Craig says:

Great thought! I like to think that the center would not be too different from the key you begin a song in. After all, that is the focus point from which you draw out and move about the flower, and I think by moving about the flower, you could map out both melody, and harmony and change keys naturally as composers frequently do. So I think by changing the center, you change the starting key, makes sense at least with baroque/classical period where starting and ending with the same key was rather common.

2. Great Question!
I have developed flawless design that Jordan needs to get up here on his site. You can see the pattern either by visiting my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CassellasFlowerOfMusic or download the first chapter of my book for free at http://tomfom.com/

Actually the note C is in the Center of the Flower of Music, not A. This is based on the 21 modes and 15 key signatures of Western Classical music. Check it out!

3. Gabe M. says:

it doesnt really matter since the flower can be expanded in any direction. i guess it just makes sense to start with A since we associate A as a beginning. but in music, there is no initial point. you can move through the octaves infiniately in any direction, such as with the flower of life.

1. Lynn says:

Exactly right Sir !

4. Allanon MoonDragon says:

I make the following suggestion. Find the vibrational note that moves water. Place it in the center of the flower.

On another note, since the representation is all encompassing there is no “center” but the above suggestion will get you were you want to be.

5. Lynn says:

Actually , you don’t need to have A in the center.

4. Hey Jordan! It’s Tom Cassella

I have dramatic updates to the Flower of Life and music harmony! I have written a whole book on it and have the first chapter download for free at my site http://tomfom.com/. Let’s update your webpage for the latest information!! Drop me a line and I will hook it up

Peace Brother, Tom Cassella

1. Great work, thank you For everything

2. Doug says:

5. Has this theory Been tested using A =432hz as your concert pitch. ie Pythagoran Tuning. I imagine this would give a more accurate flower of life representation and would probably be useful information to include in such articles. If this is new to you, research Pythagoran tuning 432hz. Should have a good day reading. Peace

6. What would be even more fascinating would be if they could make a sound-visualizer app — like the screensaver modes a lot of music players have now — that showed the blossoming happening in real time so you could see what your music looked like from a flower-of-life standpoint.

also the circle of fifths could be used to easily remember the sharps and flats in a scale and their order.

8. Meanderthrall says:

Hey Jordan,

Thought that I would share this with you and decided I would post it here since this is more relevant to this entry than any other I could find at the moment.

The first half of the trailer is most relevant to your entry.
