Every living and nonliving creature on the planet vibrates at its own special frequency. This would include humans too. Different cells within our bodies vibrate at different frequencies to create our own “special song”. In the presence of acute or chronic illnesses, these vibrations change. They are also altered by things that we eat and do. The higher the frequency, the lighter and healthier the person. There are a variety of things we can do to increase our vibrations. Obviously, consuming healthy foods and getting adequate exercise is a great contributor towards vibrational health. Simple acts of kindness and increasing our daily gratitude can greatly help as can decluttering one’s mind and living space, detoxing from technology, and engaging in a variety of therapies such as healing touch and sound therapies.
We all vibrate energetically at a particular frequency. Your 'vibration' is a fancy way of describing your overall state of being. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at various frequencies. Even things that look solid are made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum level. From a scientific and metaphysical perspective, we can say that ‘beings’ are comprised of different energy levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Each of these levels has its own unique vibrational frequency, which combines to create your overall vibration of being.
The lower the frequency, the denser your energy and the heavier your problems may be. Here, you may experience pain and discomfort in your physical body and experience heavy emotions and mental confusion. Psychically, your energy is darker. You need to exert a great deal of effort to accomplish your goals. Overall, your life tends to take on a negative quality. The higher the frequency of your energy or vibration, the lighter you may feel in your physical, emotional, and mental bodies. You experience greater personal power, clarity, peace, love, and joy. You have little, if any, discomfort or pain in your physical body and emotions are easily dealt with. It is in this stage your energy is full of light! Your life flows with synchronicity, and you manifest what you desire with ease. Overall, your life takes on a positive quality (Dussault, 2021).
Frequencies and Health
There is agreement among science, medicine, and metaphysics that certain frequencies can repel disease and specific frequencies can destroy disease. Herein lies the link between frequency (vibration) and health. Everything in nature vibrates at different frequencies. Quantum physics describes the universe as nothing more than vibrating strings of energy! Scientific research has shown that different parts of our bodies have their own sonic signature. In other words, the frequency of the cells of your heart differs from the sound of the cells of your lungs. When parts of the body become stressed or diseased, they are no longer producing the correct sound wave. In other words, they are not vibrating at their optimal resonant frequency. To re-establish your frequency, you need to understand how lower and higher vibrations affect your energy and health.
Humans have an optimal frequency, as does everything else in the universe, that occurs when each of the cells in our body vibrates at the frequency it was designed to. One researcher, Bruce Tainio, found that a healthy body resonates at a frequency of 62 to 70 MHz and when your frequency drops to 58 MHz, that is when the process of disease begins. Bacteria, viruses, and various diseases each have their own frequency that influences the body’s energy field. As your frequency drops due to environmental and physiological factors, your immune system is compromised, and opportunistic bacteria and viruses can wreak havoc on your body thus making you more susceptible to disease. Trapped emotions stored in our organs, muscles, and tissues act as pockets of electromagnetic energy and leave a negative influence on our wellbeing. Disharmony and imbalance in the body's energy field show up long before they turn into physical problems. It is also found that human vibrational frequency declines with age by up to about two percent per year until old age and then sees a sudden increase.
Ideally, you want to be a high vibrational being to maintain optimal health and wellness for the mind, body, and soul. So, what can you do to raise your vibration? First, let us think about everything you come into contact with, ingest, listen to, think, etc. Each of these things has its vibrational frequency that affects your energy field! The good news is, we can actively make changes to raise or maintain a high vibration. (Crawford 2021).
Becoming More Conscious in Your Life and in Food Choices
Everything you think, say, or feel becomes your reality. Every single thought that comes into your head has an impact on you. When you change those thoughts into ones that are more positive, your reality is likely to become positive too. Easier said than done in the face of adversity though, right? How about this, the next time a negative thought shows up in your head, take the time to acknowledge it, thank it for showing up, and then dismiss it and turn it around for more positive thoughts. Beauty is all around us, yet so often, we walk around with blinders on too busy or absorbed in life to notice. Stop rushing for a moment and take the time to stand in the sun and appreciate your surroundings (Good Therapy 2021).
Some foods vibrate at high frequencies, and some lower. For instance, broccoli has a high vibration as do blueberries while fast foods do not vibrate at all. Suppose you are consuming foods covered in chemicals and pesticides or foods found within plastic packaging. Consumption of these foods leave the body vibrating at a lower frequency. Low vibration foods include processed foods, fizzy drinks, salty, sugary, fried foods, dairy, excess caffeine, and alcohol. These foods often make you feel heavy, bloated, or drained after consumption. Conversely, after consuming good quality, organic produce, food as nature intended it, you can almost feel the high vibrations disseminate throughout the body. Examples of high vibration foods include fruits, berries, veggies, leafy greens, sprouts, herbs (like cilantro, mint, turmeric, etc.), and natural probiotics from fermented foods. Foods that make you feel light and energetic upon consumption are high vibration foods. These are whole foods that are easy to digest and provide your body with macro and micronutrients otherwise known as vitamins and minerals needed to sustain life. Similarly, drinking plenty of water to help your body flush out toxicities. Filtered water is suggested to be the best (Crawford 2021). Toxicity has a marked impact on our vibration, so we must do what we can to reduce the effects.
Connecting with Nature and Practice Meditation
Connect with mother earth by standing/walking barefoot for a few minutes. Close your eyes and feel a deep connection to the earth. Feel yourself releasing all your negative energy through the soles of your feet into the ground and being filled with positive energy from the cosmos. We are surrounded by electrical and magnetic fields that can disrupt our bio-electrical state and lower our frequency. When we connect with Mother Earth, we cleanse ourselves of these negative energies and naturally come into balance. Various studies prove that being associated with nature in this way for 10 to 30 minutes daily can profoundly benefit health.
Try sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and focusing on your inhalation and exhalation. Too often, we rush through our days with a scattered brain leaving us in a state of anxiety and stress. Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and put you in a peaceful state of mind. Just 10 minutes of meditation a day can change your life forever (Good Therapy 2021).
OM is considered the supreme mantra in Hinduism and Buddhism. This is because the sound of OM encompasses all sounds in the universe. Chanting this mantra fills your body with positive energy and increases your body's vibrational frequency. Research shows that chanting 'OM' brings down neural activity in the brain. With neural activity down, the mind and body automatically enters a deep state of relaxation resulting in the body obtaining higher vibrational states.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and utter the word 'OM.' Start with the 'O' sound, slowly close your mouth and begin to hum, so it sounds something like this – 'OOOMMMMMMMM’. You can draw out the sounds as you feel comfortable. Consciously feel the vibrations in your body, especially around your throat, chest, and head area, as you chant OM. Keep your body as relaxed as possible. It is only when the body is relaxed that the vibrations will permeate deep inside.
Be Grateful and Practice Kindness
Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you don't have to what is already abundant in your life which is something easy to overlook. There is more to be grateful for than you could imagine! For example, every night you go to bed, make it a practice to write down, in a little gratitude journal, five things you are grateful for that day. It is such a beautiful exercise.
Giving to someone else, without expecting anything in return, shifts your thinking from "I don't have enough" or "Woe is me" to "I have more than enough to give to others”. Abundance yields high vibrations. In the same vein, being kind, instead of being mean, puts you at a high vibration. Gossip or treat others badly, and your vibration will suffer.
Laugh, Play, and Have Fun
Letting loose and allowing ourselves to laugh raises our vibration without us even needing to try. This may be one of the easiest ways to increase your vibration, as there are so many ways to laugh and have fun. These are some easy ideas to get you started. Watch a funny movie. Play with animals or children. Get up and dance. Have a family game night. Engage in an activity you enjoy even if it is not “productive”. Plan a trip outdoors. Vibration requires movement; the more you move, the better your vibrations move. So, get active! The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences because you are operating at a different frequency.
Declutter Your Space
Similarly, to the idea of intermittent fasting to cleanse your body, remember to declutter your living space every once in a while, to also cleanse your surroundings. Dispose of or give away things that you no longer use. Cleaning and organizing can make your space more open and vibrant. Do this for every room in your house, taking special care of the room(s) you spend the most time in.
Detox from technology.
Our lives these days revolve around technology. There is not much we can do about that. Many of us spend most of our waking hours inside an artificially lit office building packed with computers, phones, copiers, and other technology. In this case, you might notice yourself feeling drained or joyless. This may be a result of technology lowering your vibration. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to reverse this. First, you might use your next weekend or day off to do a "technology detox." Let your friends, family, and co-workers know that you will be away from your phone for a day or two. Then, turn all electronics off, put them away, and spend at least 24 full hours without taking them back out.
Healing Touch Energy Therapy
Healing Touch is a self-healing energy practice that incorporates gentle hand placements on various body parts to re-shape and re-align a person's energy field. This process is believed to expedite healing and restore the body, mind, and spirit's health. The premise of this energy therapy practice is that the human body is made up of energy fields that are always interacting with other energy fields surrounding us. This technique is grounded in the same principles as the Asian traditions of acupuncture and Qigong which are based on the concept of life energies and the necessity of maintaining a balanced flow of these energies for good physical, mental, and emotional health. Providers of Healing Touch therapy work to assist those seeking treatment by attempting to correct, through this method, any deficiencies in the energy field (Good Therapy 2021).
Qigong is an ancient healing and exercise practice that incorporates various meditation, movements, and controlled breathing exercises. "Qi" refers to vital energy, spirit, or breath, while "gong" refers to mastery. Together, the term may loosely mean "mastery of one's vital energy." Qigong is considered to be the foundation of all martial arts.
Sound therapy has been in practice in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Everyone has had experiences of feeling calm and good with some sounds. For example, sounds used in yoga promote concentration while those used in aerobics class give energy. Sound therapy covers a range of treatments from music therapy to sound baths. These therapies have been used by various cultural groups for centuries. The most prominent form practiced in the United States is music therapy. Still, the use of individual sounds and frequencies has been growing. Essentially, sound and music are non-invasive, simple, and cost-effective therapeutic tools.
For understanding the fundamentals of sound in healing, it is essential to know a little bit about brain waves. Our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are the result of communication between neurons. Brain waves are generated through electrical impulses to and from neurons. These brain waves are divided into five different bandwidths or frequencies that form a spectrum of human consciousness. For example, sounds generating alpha waves generally release serotonin that promotes wellbeing, enhances mood, and relieves anxiety. The other healing effect occurs when these sound waves travel through the body. They promote circulation, rejuvenation, and energy flow. A study conducted by the British Academy of Sound Therapy found that 95% of clients with stress-related disorders felt improvement and calmness following sound therapy.
George Van Tassel Reverses Aging
In California's Giant Rock area, there is building called the Integration where you can find anti-aging experiences, sonic healing, waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body services. The Integration is built on the formula F = 1/t where "F" refers to the frequency and "t" refers to time. This was derived by George Van Tassel based on the extra-terrestrial experience he had in the year 1953. He reported being transported into a spaceship-like vehicle. He was told this formula, for a "time machine", by four men who appeared to have come from outer space. The auditory cortex, a region responsible for hearing, weakens with age which weakens sound awareness. Researchers established that the brain can still receive and react to audio pitches which presents an opportunity for damage restoration. The human brain is continually going through several frequency cycles throughout the day. With each frequency cycle, different effects are produced. It is possible to alter the brain's receiving and operating frequency through sound waves to induce reverse aging effects. That is the basis of binaural beats. The Integration uses a combination of sound baths and frequency to give visitors an anti-aging experience.
It is of great value, for us, in these challenging times, to stay healthy and disease-free. Having the correct vibrational frequency within our bodies can even ward off infections and keep us healthy from diseases and illnesses. Regardless of medical applications, increasing one’s vibrations offers other therapeutic benefits and can help to relieve pain and other chronic symptoms. Having a high vibrational frequency ultimately keeps your mind, body, and soul healthy.
