This may seem like a strange question to ask as we attribute vibrational frequency to sound and light waves. However, you need to realize that everything in the universe vibrates at a certain frequency. In the physical world, that we inhabit, everything seems solid and structured. However, this is simply an illusion.
If you break down all of matter into its fundamental unit, you’ll come up with the atom. However, an atom is not a solid entity. It is made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons and neutrons can be further broken down into quarks. Therefore all of matter is simply made up of electrons and quarks and all these entities consist of is a vibrational frequency of energy. In fact, you cannot localize the position of any of these entities until you observe them and the act of observation gives them the appearance of being solid.
Since all of matter is made up of atoms and their subatomic particles, this means that everything in the physical universe is simply energy vibrating at a certain frequency. Now, you may ask, how does that apply to me? You may also ask, what does this have to do with anything when my relationships are falling apart, I’m struggling to pay the bills at the end of the month or I’m dealing with chronic illness? It has everything to do with these issues and more.
You see, all of matter manifests through observation. If you don’t observe anything, then it is simply energy vibrating at a certain frequency. Once you observe it, it gives you the illusion of being solid. The same is true of us. We are not fixed, solid entities but are malleable based on our self-perception. Our self-perception and self-concept is driven by how we think and feel about ourselves, others and the world we live in.
If we perceive the world as a scary and dangerous place, this will permeate our thoughts and feelings and we will vibrate at a low frequency. If we are always thinking the worst of any situation and focusing on the negative, this will also create a low vibrational frequency. In this state, our lives will reflect this low vibrational frequency by compounding the challenges and adversities we have to deal with on a daily basis.
If however, we perceive the world as a place of infinite possibility and only see the good and hope in anything that we experience, we will be living at a high vibrational frequency and our lives will reflect this. This does not mean that we won’t face challenges and adversity, however, we will perceive them differently. We won’t become heartbroken, overwhelmed and defeated in their midst but will see them as signposts on our path to conscious evolution.
All it takes is a change in perception to change our vibrational frequency. Once we are able to change our perception, through our thoughts and feelings, we can then ground this high vibrational frequency in consciousness or our true nature. This is done through stillness practices, such as meditation, deep nature connection, movement practices, such as yoga and tai chi, martial arts and many other modalities, which can ground us in consciousness.
All you need to do now is to ask yourself, what is my current vibrational frequency? Am I living from a place of joy, love and serenity or a place of pain, loss and disdain? Where you find yourself right in this moment, know that you can easily shift your vibrational frequency, simply through a change in your perception of yourself and your world and grounding yourself in the depths of your being. It is in the depths of your being that you experience the highest vibrational frequency and touch the infinite.
This is the true purpose of your life, regardless of how it expresses individually in your life situation. This is the meaning of awakening and it is where we are all meant to be, regardless of where we find ourselves right now. Change your vibrational frequency and, forever, change your life!
