Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. – Albert Einstein
Want to pick up on some good vibrations? Everything is vibrating from the subatomic scale to the galactic. The human brain hums at various frequencies during the day. Researchers have documented these vibrations on a scale from 0.1 – 100 Hertz. Gamma Waves – 31-100 hertz represent insight, focus, expanded consciousness. Beta Waves – 16-30 hz occur signify concentration and being alert. Alpha Waves 8-15hz manifest during times of creativity and relaxed visualization. Theta Waves 4-7 Hz are generated during meditation. Delta Waves 0.1 – 3Hz are created by deep awareness, healing and sleep. But these are limited, modern mechanical measurements. Ancient thinkers documented far greater good vibes thousands of years ago.
感应 – Ganying – is a primeval concept of ancient Chinese philosophy that echoes across millennia. One direct translation of the term would be stimulus and response. But the term has far ranging philosophical connotations based on the complimentary vibrations of Qi (Chi) across the universe. In Taoism the concept could stated as the universal sympathetic resonance of everything. Confucians would use the concept to represent an ethical vibration between humans and the heavens. Chinese Buddhists would say it was answered prayers, while Chinese folk beliefs relate the concept to righteous revenge. The underlying vibratory concept is used in modern scientific definitions such as dianci ganying – electromagnetic induction and even the paranormal – chao ganying ESP. All are connected through resonance and vibrations.
