(Filmed at the Viper Room, Hollywood)
"Don't follow blind leaders, think for yourself"
COSMIC EYE ~ BIO
After moving from Austria (birthplace of Celtic Culture) to Los Angeles, singer/guitarist and songwriter Melanie Fernandez formed the hard rock band Cosmic Eye. Successfully completing a weekly residency in the year 2019 at the world famous venue Viper Room in Hollywood, the hard rock band released their debut album in March 2020 ~ "The Shaman Soul" parallel with their first official music video for the song "Blood Sweat and Tears".
Cosmic Eye is not a political band as shown in their video. The singer Melanie Fernandez explained in a recent interview that it is very difficult to stay out of politics nowadays because there are so many injustices going on. "If someone is mistreated in society because of their gender, race, color or religion we have to stand up and speak up. It is not legit keeping quiet before injustice and inhumanity. We as humans are all equal. We only grew up in different environments with different backgrounds and other belief systems which causes unrelated life experiences". The music video warns and shows the viewer that catastrophes will happen if people continue to follow blind leaders as history has shown us. It is about thinking and evaluating situations for ourselves. Everyone could be a blind leader in your surroundings. A family member or a friend who is influencing you in a certain way. We should not follow blind an ideology just because everyone around us believes in it. "Try to really think and evaluate for yourself everything that comes your way so that no one is able to manipulate your decision making. Be aware of bias. Did you ever question your parent's belief system? Most likely you have taken over their belief system as well. That is our root foundation. If these roots are based on blind ideologies like race discrimination for example, we really have to question our own belief system. We have to question the world and our place in it". The message is about self development, liberation from past bondages and personal evolution. Every individual first has to progress for the better so the collective consciousness can evolve. “The snake that can not shed its skin has to die. As well as the human minds which are prevented from changing”. We are all connected as one big organism. If we hurt someone else we hurt ourselves. For the betterment of this planet we need to start doing our personal part of the work, the shadow work. The real work, the work on ourselves. This is the very essence of the frontman's philosophy.
In the Celtic and Shamanic Tradition, people who were entering and facing the darkness of their souls metamorphose (transformed) into new reborn beings like a Phoenix who burns and raises again from his own ashes. The Phoenix is a bird from mythology who burns his old self to change into a new reborn version of himself. “The burning fire will hurt but it will transform our minds by lifting and liberating our pain and emptiness". For once the process has started there is no turning back. One must be courageous to face his own darkness without denial.
What are Chakras?
Chakras are the energy centers of the body. They are located in the astral body along the spine starting at the base of the spine and running upwards to the top of the head. The Cosmic Eye (also called: The Third Eye, or the Eye of Intuition) is also a energy center located in between the eyebrows. The Chakras coincide with a gland in the physical body and each one radiates a specific color and energy. Since each chakra relates to specific spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical aspects of our being, it is said that energy blockages or malfunctions of the chakras can lead to physical, psychological and emotional disorders. Through awareness of the energy center's psychological, physiological and emotional connections to personal issues, we can start working on the problems we have thereby the healing process begins.
For example: The root (1st Chakra) is located at the base of the spine and its energy radiates red. This is our foundation and connection to the earth. It provides the foundation on which we build our life. It connects to our basic human instinct for survival, security and stability. In balance: Grounding stability instinct, feeling of community, tribe and foundation. A blocked or imbalance of the root energy center can manifest itself physically by colon or bladder problems, liver problems or diabetes. Blockages and imbalances on an emotional and psychological level can manifest as anxiety, fear, fatigue, insecurity, addictions, greed, instability and lacking a sense of identity.
The snake is the symbol of the Kundalini snake (translated: coiled serpent). It is a form of divine feminine energy force, located at the base of the spine torment and coiled in. For example, through certain techniques like meditation the Kundalini Snake energy travels from the base of the spine upwards through all energy centers until it reaches the top of our head where the highest chakra is located. This energy when cultivated and awakened by certain practices it is believed to lead to spiritual liberation.
