I watched some experiments with sound waves on YouTube this morning, and I saw one where two tuning forks are set on hollow boxes that allow transfer of sound waves from one to the other. If the tuning forks are produced for the same frequency, then striking one will start the second one vibrating without striking it at all.
Point? We all have personal frequencies, and we resonate with others — or not. If some giant could pick us up and thump us, then he could wave us over others and see who started vibrating. We would be resonant with that other person. Ouch!
Have you ever spent time talking, working, or listening to someone in any capacity, and then, have you suddenly realized that an inordinate amount of time has passed without you even knowing it? That’s resonance. We want to be connected to and in resonance with those kind of people. (I was going to say vibrating with, but I thought that could be taken in a wrong way. Oops!).
When we discover who we really are, that core Self, we have discovered our fundamental, or base, frequency. When we interact with others, and we end up feeling energized, encouraged, happier, productive, or a thousand other possibilities, we have discovered someone with the same frequency, or whole number ratios of it. Our interactions keep one another vibrating with spiritual, emotional, and practical significance.
Oh, did I mention that in order to produce frequency you must input energy? You do. What energy have you exercised to discover the frequency of your own personal identity? Once you are set in motion, any others around you will sense that and respond, or not. A lack of response by either party indicates that there is no resonance; the discordant frequencies just cancel or quiet one another.
Back to basics: Put in the energy and strike your heart with questions, listen for the resulting tone, and enjoy it. When you come in contact with others with whom you resonate, evaluate what interactions, qualities, ideas, or actions really got you humming. Did you get enthusiastic? Did you visualize some sort of plan? Did you start making scads of connections with other thoughts, ideas, actions, etc.? Those evaluations can create personal insights and help immensely with your growing self-awareness. Don’t try to be like others; however, when you resonate with others that says something about the kind of vibrations you are sending out.
I want to share an example from yesterday, because this applies to anything attracted to you or that you are attracted to. Now, my friend Steve and I really resonate with each other, but the surprise for me came in relationship to his two year old son, Nash, who sat next to me in his high chair. My friend had just videoed me, with Nash in the shot, and Nash and I started playing with his plastic dinosaurs. We went back and forth for a few minutes when Steve asked me something. I took my attention off of Nash, who promptly patted my arm and just rolled his head over onto my shoulder, just resting it there. Talk about resonance! I laid my head on his, and we just stayed like that for some seconds.
What does that say to me? I know myself. I truly enjoy other people — age is immaterial — and Nash sensed that and responded. I responded to him, then, because we all need encouragement that who we are makes a difference. Little Nash let me know that in a very natural, simple gesture. Yes, resonance!
