Science and Metaphysics agree. The essence of all things is
vibration. Science reveals that everything in the manifest
universe is ultimately composed of packets of energy; quantized
units vibrating at specific frequencies. Esoteric wisdom reveals
that in the beginning, all things were created through sound
(i.e. vibration); whether it be the “OM” of Eastern mysticism or
the “Word”/Logos of Western spirituality.
Our thoughts, feelings and actions also have their own particular
rates of vibration. These vibrations will set up resonance with
whatever possesses identical frequency. In other words, your
thoughts are inseparably connected to the rest of the universe.
This is why it is so essential to be a close observer of
yourself. As you think, feel and act, so you create the primary
vibration of your being. This fundamental vibration then creates
resonance with identical vibration frequencies in the universe.
The result is an attraction of circumstances, people, challenges
and opportunities in exact vibrational resonance with your own
dominant vibration frequency.
This principle lies at the heart of visualization techniques,
affirmations and the whole personal development movement. When
you visualize and repeat affirmations, you are helping to tune
your very being to a specific vibrational frequency on the inner
planes. Once that task is achieved, your mind comes into
vibrational resonance with the object of your desires. Being now
of the same frequency, this object (or goal) is inevitably
attracted into your life.
However, for such methods to work, it does imply that you have
changed your core vibration. This is very often the problem AND
explanation as to why such techniques seem to fail for so many
people. Over the course of many years, your inner conditioning is
created from the habitual thoughts, feelings and actions
that you engage in. This forms your self-image and creates the
level of self-esteem you feel. It shapes the way you
conceptualize the world you live in, as well as the way you
respond to it. It is how you interpret your life experiences.
If a person simply mouths affirmations or writes goals out,
without having touched the deep bedrock of their long-term
conditioning, such activities will not have much effect. This is
because the dominant vibration has not changed. You cannot go
against what your self-image, and your predominant conditioning,
say you are.
Thought is where it all begins. As your conscious mind dwells
habitually on thoughts of a certain quality, these become firmly
embedded within the subconscious mind. They become the dominant
vibration. This dominant vibration sets up a resonance with other
similar vibrations and draws them into your life. This is easier
to understand if you consider that from the metaphysical view,
the whole universe IS MIND.
Hence, to draw what you wish into your life, you should begin
with the mind, and make it your primary focus. Most people do
things the other way around, and come up with practical
techniques to generate their desires, and then go out and try
them. However, when these methods are not in tune with your
dominant vibration, then you will have great difficulty making
the desired results come to pass. You will also feel most
uncomfortable if they do. You have trained your mind in a certain
way, you have set the thermostat at a certain level, and now you
are trying to exceed the limits you have set upon yourself by
The trap most people fall into is that they condition their
future with expectations from their past. It’s like driving with
your eyes fixed on the rear view mirror the whole time. You
cannot see where you are going because you are too busy looking
back on past history. Is it any wonder that, for most people, the
future DOES closely resemble the past?!
The problem is that, by focusing continually on what you have
become as a result of past conditioning, you guarantee that you
draw this same dominant vibration into the future. This is also
why your desired future can seem so far away from you. It is
vibrating at an alien frequency and hence, in a real sense, it IS
very far away.
Instead, you have to first change the dominant vibration within.
Once your dominant vibration is in harmony with what you seek,
the latter must literally be “attracted” to you without excessive
striving! It will seem easy in comparison to what came before. In
a very real sense, you have to become what you seek on the inside
before you can ever have it in physical reality.
There are several ways to gradually change the dominant vibration
of your inner being, and begin to resonantly attract what you
seek. One important thing to do is to have a clear vision of your
life as you want it to be; completely independent of the
circumstances of your present or past. Lack of absolute clarity
about their desired future could well be the number one reason
why people fail in life.
You are creating something new from the universal intelligence,
and drawing it into your reality. You do NOT have to base this
upon the past, your perceived weaknesses, or anything else that
derives from your limited self-image.
A good way to gain clarity is to write down in detail the
attainment of what you seek. What would it look like? How would
you feel if you achieved it? What difference would it make to
your life? It may take you days, or even weeks, to create this
vision, but it is time well spent.
By creating a vision of your desired state and putting energy
into it regularly, you use mind power to shape the very stuff of
creation. You create this imagined “reality” in your mind to the
point where your subconscious actually believes it to be physical
reality and goes about making it so. It will attract the
circumstances, the people, and the opportunities you need to
bring about the vision you have created.
If you are doubtful about this, consider for a moment that you
are doing this anyway. The only difference is that you may be
unaware you are doing it. If so, your overall vibration is
incoherent, and hence your results fluctuate wildly. By becoming
conscious, you take conscious control of the creative process and
can learn to manifest at will.
Another way to change your vibration rate is to act “as if”. If
you had already attained what you seek, how would you think and
act? Well, start thinking and acting that way right now. Again,
this helps to impress the dominant vibration you choose upon your
subconscious mind. Again, you have been doing this all your life
anyway. Simply take conscious deliberate control of the process
from now on. For instance, Cary Grant is known to have said:
“I acted like Cary Grant for so long, I became him.”
Taking time to meditate regularly on the truth that all is
vibration, seeing this reality in all is myriad guises, will also
help reinforce it upon your mind – both conscious and
subconscious. You will begin to believe it, and what you believe
is what you act upon.
The reason most people achieve very little in comparison to what
they are capable of is because they have no vision for the future
whatsoever. Focused, single-minded concentration upon a vision
you seek to create is what will actually cause it to happen. You
have to read your description every day (preferably twice or
more), and then vividly imagine it. Begin to live that reality
now in your mind’s eye, and you make its future manifestation all
the more rapid. Do not even worry about how it will happen. Just
do your part and let the universe, through the law of vibration,
do the rest.
