The Nature of Vibration
Much of what I’m about to say comes from the inspiring books and teachings of Esther and Jerry Hicks, bestselling authors of Ask and It Is Given, The Astonishing Power of Emotions, and more recently, Getting Into the Vortex: Guided Meditations CD and User Guide. Their teachings remind us that we are Vibrational Beings, every cell in our body, every thought, every feeling. They describe our emotions as having various frequencies – using the analogy of a scale, with negative emotions at the lower end of the scale and positive emotions at the higher end. Fear, worry, anxiety, hatred, anger, frustration, prejudice all have a very low vibration. Emotions like love, joy, gratitude, appreciation, inspiration, enthusiasm, and passion are all of a higher vibration. What we may not know is how to change our emotional state from one of chronic negativity to practiced positivity, or even know why it is so important to make the change. The reason it is important can be summed up in one word: ILLNESS. Or, if you prefer the more commonly used word: DIS-EASE.
In order to prevent disease, we have to understand the impact our emotional nature has on our vibrational set point, i.e., point of attraction. Whatever vibration we habitually hold, is in direct correlation with, and equal to, the evidence that shows up in our lives. In other words, it is our BELIEFS that CAUSE the EVIDENCE to materialize. It has never been, nor should it ever be the opposite: that the evidence is what causes our beliefs to concretize. This is MAJOR. This is the Law of Attraction, and the Law of Attraction is the Nature of Vibration. Chronic discomfort – emotionally or physically – starts with a chronic belief.
So what is a belief? It is a habit of thought, a well-practiced opinion, an unyielding viewpoint or vibrational set point. My life experience has taught me that the only thing I can expect to be constant is change. And unless I learn to deal with change and manage the stress that often accompanies it, my unyielding and resistant habit of thought creates tension, anxiety, fear and stress on the body. The natural expansion of life cannot be resisted, restrained or changed. If we try to change the “evidence,” we are operating under the false premise that action has more power than ALIGNMENT with Creative Energy. All the action in the world cannot stop the natural creation process. Not only would it be futile – it would be FATAL. The only thing we have the power to change is our ability to change. We have to get up to speed with Creation. There is no restraining life or the natural changes it inspires. And if we let those changes we are witnessing “out there” adhere us to fear, we will get stuck in the muck.
On the other hand, we can learn to accept that the very reason we witness so much change in our world is because there are so many variations in life, human beings and cultures, vibrationally asking for something different. We are all cut from the same Creative Cloth, imbuing us with the Divine Right to Create. It’s important to remember that we don’t all have to want or create the same things. Infinite Intelligence knows how to accommodate all creative requests. Now, I know some of you will say, “but I don’t like what some people are doing (or creating), it causes fear and anxiety in me.” Fair enough. Again, I say, all the action in the world that offers resistance to this “unwanted behavior” will STILL NEVER CHANGE IT. What it will do is create a change in you, and send a message to every cell in your body saying, “resist this person, resist this group, I am worried about what they will do, I am fearful of them, I am fearful of you, I am sick and tired.” Guess what will manifest if you continue to offer those thoughts?
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.” Today, I’m offering a variation on those wise words: No one can make you feel sick (or anxious) without your permission. If you don’t like what your vibrational attitude is attracting in the way of evidence, it may be time to take stock of what you are resisting in the way of change, and remind yourself:
We are designed to SUCCEED. We are designed to experience WELL-BEING. We are created from a place of Infinite Abundance with the capability of attracting ABUNDANCE. We are imbued with the Divine, Innate Intelligence to HEAL ourselves one cell at a time, one thought at a time, one emotion at a time. Healing ourselves in this way is the only way to heal our world.
