Entrainment/Resonance – A Natural Law
Entrainment and resonance are laws. Entrainment actually refers to how we “sync-up” with one another. What you entrain with literally determines how reality shows up. Entrainment is a concept derived from “new physics” – or Einstein’s quantum mechanics. New physics tells us we are all pulsating fields of energy at different vibrations. Where our vibration or frequency is pulsating has a profound effect on how we live our lives and how we look at ourselves and our world. When we are entrained with another we are basically “on the same wavelength”. New physics’ wave theory tells us when the crest and trough of one wave synchs up with the crest and trough of another wave, the result is that amplitude and strength are doubled in both waves. Therefore, when we are entrained with another, we have more; more love, more joy, more hope – more of what we want. The amplitude and strength of our wavelengths is doubled.
This is the reason why spiritual teachers consistently speak about the company we keep. When we are in the company of the good, we entrain to the vibratory frequency of that good and that good quality that also resides in us is enhanced. And, conversely, when we are in the company of those whose vibratory frequencies equal that of distrust, dishonesty and other forms of negativity, we can unfortunately also entrain to those lower vibrations.
Our bodies are also a group of parts which when entrained come together to create a whole and healthy individual. This is why it is essential for us to keep ourselves spiraling up into higher and higher frequencies. This, of course, takes a real and dedicated commitment to ourselves. Basically, it is our responsibility to make sure that we entrain to the higher qualities of the human spectrum.
Swiss physicist, Christian Huygens, did an experiment with the Law of Entrainment where he hung twenty-five pendulum clocks on a wall. These clocks were of all different sizes, times and rhythms. Guess how long it took for all of the pendulums to be oscillating together? One hour. What this tells us is that there is tremendous implication for being in the orbit of an angry, alcoholic parent for 18 years and what we may entrain to from a vibrational perspective! We may find ourselves an angry person with a fundamental lack of knowledge as to why we are feeling this way and living with the negative consequences of this behavior pattern which is generally disconnection – from ourselves and others. We have, unwittingly, entrained to our alcoholic parent’s anger and frustration and we carry these frequencies in our body-mind systems and actually act out of them.
Resonance is the frequency at which a person or an object most naturally vibrates. Every organ, every cell, and every tissue in the human system has its own resonant frequency. These all come together to create one whole, composite frequency – essentially our own note. What we resonate with determines how we live our life; our thoughts, feelings, tendencies, and actions. When we resonate with virtues such as truth, justice, kindness, humility, etc., the results we experience in our everyday interactions with others have greater potential for positive outcomes – hence, the advantage of the company of the good!
In Resonance Repatterning , we literally uncover the sub-conscious negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs a person resonates with and change that resonance. For instance, if we resonate with the frequency of “I am unlovable”, even though many individuals in life really do love us, it might be difficult for us to believe it or even feel the love given. As a result, we will choose certain situations in life that mirror that negative belief about ourselves, such as choosing a partner we feel really does not love us or choosing a partner we do not really love. Changing the resonance with this belief not only opens the space for receiving the love others give us, most importantly it opens the space for us to love ourselves. When we resonate with loving ourselves, we attract other individuals who feel the same way about themselves engendering greater potential for deep and fulfilling intimate relationships.
Because of this phenomenon when we attempt to get our own needs met in an intimate relationship things can get difficult. If we do not resonate with getting our needs met, we may be with someone who is actually meeting our needs and we do not recognize it – even more importantly we cannot feel it. Many people believe that having needs is selfish or weak. If we never got our needs met as children, we do not even think about what it is that we really need let alone ask for it. Resonating with having our needs met can change our situation without having to change the person we are in relationship with – which is often the only solution that we can envision. Sometimes we feel it is better to leave a relationship where we are not getting our needs met. Of course, entering into another relationship without having changed the resonance with not recognizing our needs, will inevitably lead to problems recognizing if this new person is meeting our needs – again. Then we are compelled to find someone else and the cycle continues – generally with great pain and suffering as a result.
As mentioned before, it is our responsibility to entrain and resonate with the higher qualities gifted to us as human beings. If we entrain and resonate with the positive qualities in ourselves and others, we will positively affect our own lives and the lives of the people around us. This happens because those around us will entrain and resonate with our own positive way of being – really a big step for ourselves and a “giant leap for mankind”. This can only mean good news for the world.
