The scientific definition of vibration according to the Encyclopedia Britannica is:
Vibration, periodic back-and-forth motion of the particles of an elastic body or medium, commonly resulting when almost any physical system is displaced from its equilibrium condition and allowed to respond to the forces that tend to restore equilibrium.
Put simply, vibration is motion. Back and forth, up and down, from equilibrium, out and back again. And vibrations are literally everywhere. From waves in the ocean and other bodies of water (ripples), to sound, to color, light, and all other solid surfaces that are displaced. We are influenced by both visible and invisible vibrations.
Indeed, if we go all the way down to the cellular level, everything is made up of vibrating particles and energy. Depending upon the speed of the vibration, things may appear as a gas, liquid, or solid. Because the vibrations are below the microscopic level, we cannot see them with our eyes. So, when speaking of vibration, it’s really a conversation about energy.
We know that if music is turned up loud, we can feel the vibration. We know color has a vibration and we can see clearly demonstrated in a rainbow. But what about things like, emotions, thoughts, words? Do those have vibrations too?
Dr Masaru Emoto observed that words had an effect on frozen water crystals. When positive words like love and gratitude were spoken into water and then frozen and photographed, the water crystals would form into beautiful patterns similar to snowflakes; but when negative words like “I hate you” were spoken, the water crystal formed into more chaotic looking particles. The particles even seemed to be influenced by beautiful versus destructive music!
Candace Pert, PHD, went even further in her work, proving that emotions were not just a chemical in the brain, but electrochemical signals received by receptors at the cellular level, affecting chemistry and electricity of each cell. It doesn’t stop there. The energy created by emotions in the body, also affect others outside the body. Dr Pert explained how we literally are vibrating like a tuning fork and sending out signals to others who are picking up on those signals. Her book Molecules of Emotion, goes into great detail about the scientific research behind this principle.
What that means for us, is that our thoughts and emotions, truly do matter, as they communicate to every cell in our body, and others around us. It can motivate and inspire us to be careful with how we think, how we feel, and how we communicate to others. We’ve all been in the presence of others who’s negative talk, brings down an entire room. We’ve likely all experienced a person who enters a room who either, is positive and happy and changes the vibration of the room to a much higher experience for everyone, or is angry or hateful and can ultimately influence the clearing of the room completely. This can be done without a single word spoken.
I entered a personal experiment some years ago. I focused on the words I was speaking and determined not to express any words of complaining, whining, or blaming. The challenge was to go 21 days with none of that. If I failed, I had to start over, which I did a few times. It took me nearly sixty days, and reviewing the challenge, I found that when I bragged to my husband that I had made it 21 full days without complaining, he told me I had complained about static in my hair that morning. LOL. I refused to start over. It took me 60 days to complete..
The important note though is how I felt. During that same time I was also very purposeful about finding, expressing, and writing about gratitude. I felt GREAT!. Gratitude is a very high vibration and that is likely why. How’s your vibration? How’s your energy? Maybe it has something to do with what you are thinking and feeling. Begin to incorporate the Law of Vibration and you may see improved results.
