The Science of Good Vibrations
How frequencies affect your healthIn the year 1905, Albert Einstein proved that we can break matter down into smaller components and that, when we do, we move beyond the material realm and into a realm in which everything is energy.
This is the Law of Vibration, a law of nature that states that ‘nothing rests; everything moves; every thing vibrates.’ The lower the vibration, the slower the vibration; the higher the vibration the faster the frequency or shorter the wavelength. The difference between manifestations of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms can result simply from different levels of vibrating energy, or frequencies.
If you've ever experienced a flyover from an F16 fighter jet, you know that it's not just an auditory experience, but rather an emotional/spiritual one that penetrates to the core, creating an emotional response ranging from panic to sheer joy. You feel more awake and alive immediately afterward, as your own vibration is elevated by the higher resonance of the plane. Let's look at why.
"If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, vibration and frequency." --Nikola Tesla
But where's the science?The most common unit of measure for frequency is the Hertz, which is one vibrational cycle per second. So a frequency of 460 Hz means that there are 460 cycles of vibration occurring every single second. Although most frequencies exist outside our human perception, all of these frequencies can be thought of as either colors or sounds. There are seven colors in a rainbow and seven notes in the musical scale. So the color blue is also heard as the musical key of D, (which vibrates at 587 Hz when played in the 5th octave on a piano). Go 40 octaves above that and you have a frequency at trillions of cycles per second...
The Sound-Light Continuum
According to Einstein, if a pianist could press a key way above the eighty-eight keys on a piano, that key would produce Light. And you could create a chord of Light in the same way you create a chord of sound. Only the vibration/frequencies would be seen as colors of Light because the waves would be moving at the speed of Light. You'll find this philosophical Law of Vibration in quantum physics and in Einsteins theory of relativity-- that Energy is related to matter and the speed of light, Einstein’s famous E = mc2 equation. But, has anyone actually proven it?
From Sound to Light
A century after Einstein's theory was published, a group of researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California successfully converted sound waves to light radiation in 2009 by reversing a process of cell phone technology that transforms electricity to sound. This marks the first time in science that sound has actually been converted to light. The findings, which were published in Nature Physics, could improve how computer chips, LEDs, and transistors are made, and also have applications in ultrafast materials science and ... including ramifications for the human body.

Principle of Resonance
When two frequencies are brought together, the lower will always rise to meet the higher. This is the principle of resonance. An example of this is when a piano is tuned. A tuning fork is struck, and then brought close to the piano string that carries that same musical tone. The string then raises its vibration automatically and attunes itself to the same rate at which the fork is vibrating.
Why raise your frequency?
Using this principal of resonance, we can actually increase or decrease the speed at which the molecules in our bodies vibrate, through our exposure to high/low vibration thinking and feeling along with other vibrational frequencies that enter the body's energy field.
Why this matters...
At the very leading edge of biophysics today, scientists are recognizing that the molecules in our bodies are actually controlled by these frequencies. In 1974, Dr. Colin W.F. McClare, Ph.D, an Oxford University Bio-Physicist, discovered that frequencies of vibrating energy are roughly one-hundred times more efficient in relaying information within a biological system than physical signals, such as hormones, neurotransmitters and other growth factors.
Low frequency mindset in disease
According to a report in the medical journal Epidemiology, (May 2001; 11:345-349) psychological stress - particularly the chronic type that may accompany a personality with a negative outlook - is a risk factor for contracting colds. An optimistic outlook and outgoing personality seemed to protect individuals, researchers found.
The findings indicate that high levels of psychological stress are closely associated with contracting the common cold. While the common cold is rarely a serious health hazard, it is responsible for about 30 million days of lost work in the U.S. alone each year.
To investigate whether stress increased the likelihood of developing a cold, the researchers surveyed more than 1,100 Spanish university staff and students at regular intervals over a one year period. The study focused on different types of stress, including stress from life events, perceived stress, having a generally negative outlook, anxious or compulsive personality, compared with having a positive outlook and grattitude for life.
Individuals with a negative outlook were at greatest risk of developing colds - regardless of their intake of vitamin C and zinc or their smoking and drinking habits. The next highest-risk individuals were those who believed that they were under stress. These people were nearly three times as likely to develop a cold, according to the report.
Effect of frequency as a force of creation
If you're still a little shy about the notion that vibrational frequency of thoughts, words, sound (which we know is in a continuum with light) have power to create anything of substance in the physical world think of lasers that can kill or heal depending on their frequency.
And check out this illustrative 4 minute video where different sound waves are passed through carbon containing materials (of which our bodies are primarily composed) like sand, dirt and metal pilings. It's a great reason to tune into your own emotions and feelings and channel your brain to create higher vibrational thoughts like gratitude, forgiveness and love over thoughts of doubt, fear and hate about yourself and the world around you.
