Magda Cwik : A Vibrating Chakra in the Key of C in Mexico City

Magda Cwik : A Vibrating Chakra in the Key of C in Mexico City

Finding an inner sense of balance when living in the chaotic city is not easy, and you’ll have to be determined to achieve it after you’ve been pushed and pinched and insulted and assaulted – just on the way to work, or even the corner deli.

Traffic, construction, muffled train announcements, blaring radios, and boisterous conversations between Bernice and Brandon and Betty and Bernardo batter you from the time you leave your apartment until you arrive bedraggled and exhausted.

For Polish muralist Magda Cwik, the pursuit of balance begins on a high note – and travels through your musical chakras. Here in the in Juárez neighborhood of Mexico City she has been painting a series of eight murals which she intends to assist urban dwellers to live in balance – including via their ears.

“I combined specific colors, images, music and intentions to rise up vibrations of people on the street,” she tells us of a campaign she calls “Vibraising”. “The wall focuses on reactivation and connection with Mother Earth and grounding,” she says, and she includes a QR attached to the wall for you to scan and listen to music that corresponds to her desire to help you rebalance.

“How often do we walk with our bare feet to connect with Earth? Do we live in harmony with Her?” she asks. “Earth provides us with everything we need to sustain us if we live in balance. By connecting with Nature we can heal ourselves, and listen to the teachings of our ancestors.”
