Every culture has its art forms. Making and appreciating art is a universal human trait, it seems.
People are usually called to specific genres of art, just as they are called to specific forms of healing. You may be healed and uplifted by opera, for example, while for me it's bluegrass. You may respond to realism in painting or literature, while I resonate to impressionism in visual arts and magical realism in literature.
While no two people respond even to the same piece in the same way, there ARE pieces of art that seem to have an almost universal aesthetic and energetic appeal, such as the Taj Mahal and the great cathedrals of Europe, which were specifically designed to create feelings of elevation and awe. (I.e, they were DESIGNED to have an energetic impact.)
This led me to thinking about how particular works of art have an impact on particular aspects of our energy anatomy. I've been too busy to give much more thought to it, but I was wondering if you, dear readers, could come up with movies, literature, visual art, architecture, theatre, music, dance, or other art forms that you feel support particular chakras or other aspects of the human energy system.
