Some people react when I use these words (the 'and' is usually fine) when describing some of the things I talk about. Why should this be I wonder? Is it because they think they have a connection with what is generally termed the 'new age' movement, which many have dismissed as wishy-washy and therefore everything that is said under its apparent banner must be connected to it? If that is true then I understand, but that doesn't mean it makes no sense not to use them. We are energy after all. The Universe is made of it. Every cell in our bodies contains atoms vibrating at a certain frequency. Everything is moving, vibrating, in some form or another. Water is only water because its molecules vibrate at a certain frequency, slow them down and it becomes what we call ice. No longer water, but it is still there. So why should applying the same terminology when describing our state of being, level of consciousness, cause them to be dismissed so easily? It makes sense that consciousness would not only resonate at a certain frequency, but be affected by the way we think, feel and act. It makes sense that our vibration would be affected by the way we feel as a result of the way others are towards us. Take music. It's all about frequency and vibration. And how important is music in most people's lives? It moves us, changes us, sometimes we can even feel its affects physically. We employ it in every aspect of our lives. And what is it? A collection of vibrations, frequencies, harmonics, that when put together a certain way affect us emotionally. Why should music do this? Whether you believe that consciousness is wholly generated from within the brain, or that there is some multidimensional aspect to who we are, shouldn't affect this idea fundamentally. But existing in a multidimensional way makes a lot of sense and would explain a few things if it were true. It would explain how we're able to experience and perceive in a very different way according to the frequency of our vibration, and why those who don't experience certain frequencies have a hard time accepting such a thing might be real. Those who never alter their consciousness may never understand what this actually means. Most people experience some kind of altered state when they take part in dangerous, adrenaline-fueled activities, or during naturally dangerous or fear-filled moments. It's the result of the rush that jumping out of a plane or off a bridge with a bungee cord for the first time brings. We know we can induce altered states ourselves chemically, psychedelically, and what we're effectively doing when we do this is resonating at a different frequency. Meditation is very effective at creating a space that isn't always easy to achieve without practicing it. This space, over time, creates a sense of presence, peace and well-being, which permeates throughout life, outside of any cannabis use, that has real benefits that are hard to achieve without it. To raise consciousness and thereby know ourselves better, we must consciously change frequency, that is the point of all this. When we one day start to resonate at the highest vibrations, we move closer towards becoming one with all that is. All that is, is all that is. It is where we came from and where we go back to. But what if we can know what this means in a way we've never understood before? Wouldn't that be something worth realising?
