The Art of Resonance
When I first read
the renowned book
"Vibrational Medicine" by Richard Gerber, M.D"
1991, I thought I understood what Vibrational Healing really was. And
now, after many years of education, personal research and private
practice, I am still just beginning to understand what it is all about.
In Dr. Gerber's book, he
clearly and thoroughly describes Vibrational Medicine as the science of
sensing and interfacing with energy. According to Einstein's model,
energy is the "stuff" that all living things are made of, from human
beings and animals to plants and crystals. Even your plastic shampoo
bottle is made of energy! Everything is energy and energy vibrates at
particular frequencies. Some energies move more quickly and at a higher
frequency and some slower and at a lower frequency. This is all
scientific and measurable.
Energy consists not only
as a particular cell at the atomic level, but also as fields of energy,
which is likened to a "group" of energies. For example, all bones are
made up of a particular vibrational frequency, as are all organs, and
all fluids in the body. Refining that even further, there is a
particular frequency for the femur, the heart, and blood. And refining
this even further, a particular frequency for bone marrow, cardiac
muscle, and blood plasma... You get my point.
And, going outward, we
can say that each individual human resonates at a particular frequency
or vibration, as does the human energy field around the physical body.
And beyond that, the human species, every planet, every solar system,
every galaxy, etc. The microcosm and the macrocosm are made of the same
"stuff" and mirror each other. "As above, so below" said the Egyptian
Hermes Trismegistus. This is the holographic principle.
can be seen in visible form by a process called Cymatics. When sand is
scattered on a steel disc and a violin is played near the disc, round
symmetrical patterns are produced in the sand. Each musical note
produces a unique mandala pattern in the sand. Vibrational frequency is
also perceivable with sound. When "C" is toned on a piano or other
stringed instrument, every other stringed instrument nearby will begin
to vibrate and tone all of their "C" strings. Both of these examples
illustrate the principle of resonance. Resonance is when one form
transmits information and another form receives that information and
transforms itself to become the same vibrational frequency.
fact, all matter perceives vibration and will resonate and attune
themselves with like frequencies. From every cell to every galaxy, each
form has a frequency of balance and health. So when any form is out of
balance and health, and it perceives a vibration that it resonates with,
it will immediately begin vibrating to the same frequency. This is
Now, this is when it gets
really interesting, because there are so many ways to resonate form into
a state of balance and health. The tools typically used in Vibrational
Healing are those that can precisely attune to a specific frequency and
therefore vibration. Those include at the most basic level color, light
and sound. But that's for next month's article. What I really want to
talk about is the art of Presence.
In truth, since
everything is energy, then anything can be used as a tool for
Vibrational Healing. What I have learned over the years is that healing
is the act and result of resonance and that resonating to a particular
vibration requires the communication of information between two forms.
As a practitioner, healing occurs at the deepest level when I become the
vibrational tool. In other words, the real tool is not external at all,
but comes from within.
When I become centered,
still, peaceful and receptive, I vibrate these frequencies. The
information my body and being transmits is health and balance. Anything
nearby, or even at a distance with focused intention, is invited to
receive the signal of "centeredness, stillness, peacefulness and
receptivity", and vibrate accordingly. My effectiveness as a "healer" is
only as good as my ability to vibrate these frequencies. Any external
tool I might use in and of itself is only as effective as I am at being
the "state of balance". This state of balance is what I call Presence.
And when I maintain Presence, the frequency of any external tool I use
is amplified and becomes even more effective.
Presence, however, is not
just a skill helpful to health practitioners. It is a discipline that
can benefit the daily life of you and others. It requires stilling the
mind and letting go of the past and future simultaneously. What results
is joyful living in every moment. It is the place where children live,
where every new experience is embraced with childlike curiosity and
wonder. It can bring joy and ecstasy in living, and often healing within
you and those around you.
I highly recommend taking
time to explore the art of Presence. I have learned what I know thus far
mostly from meditation, and my training and experiences as a health
practitioner. There are numerous other ways to learn, such as any of the
martial arts, yoga, t'ai chi, chi kung, fly fishing, running! Who knows
what beautiful, creative ways you will find to express this for
yourself! Explore! And from my heart, I wish you a joyous adventure.

book on vibration and resonance healing!
This classic, first published in 1988, gives detailed information on
crystal healing, therapeutic touch, chakras, acupuncture, flower
essences, gem elixirs, psychic healing, and much more. An abundance of
illustrations, a fine glossary, and an extensive reading list, round out
this very special book. This is a book I pull out as a reference all the
