Expansion of Consciousness
What does it mean to evolve or expand our consciousness?
Our normal “shadowy” vision of the world is transformed and we gain something of the intense vision of the world of children and some indigenous peoples. It’s as if a new dimension of reality is added, as if the world switches from monochrome to colour… we become aware of the presence of a spirit-force in the world, pervading all things and the spaces between things. We realize that it’s this spirit-force that… is the source of the harmony and the radiance we can see everywhere.– Steve Taylor, Waking from Sleep
One way to visualize this concept is to consider a metaphor… individual consciousness can be likened to an antenna designed to receive information.
In telecommunications, one might upgrade hardware from an antenna to a satellite dish. Why? Because this upgraded device is capable of receiving a greater amount of information. Similarly, our “hardware” (mindbody) attunes our “receiver” (our individual consciousness) to that of the desired source (the greater consciousness or infinite intelligence). It’s possible to “upgrade” to receive more insight and wisdom.
Satellite dishes can be made from various materials and come in various sizes; similarly, our body, brain and mind through which consciousness flows can be in various states of health, awareness and balance. Time-tested practices designed to evolve or expand our “receiver” include meditation and contemplation.
The Mindbody Antenna
We are learning how the body is actually a multifaceted antenna system that receives lots of different kinds of information. That includes your physical body, all the way from your bones down to the cellular level of your existence. The brain processes the physical information that is coming in, and then there is also the subtle energy in your body that interprets information coming in from that way, as well. The mind-body antenna coordinates the whole thing and takes in information from everywhere… Things like yoga and tai chi move our bodies through different ritual positions, helping to facilitate receiving these frequencies. We position ourselves just like we change the rabbit ears on an old TV set, and move through these different energy waves, like a radio scanner that moves through different bands of frequencies to pull in information.– MaAnna Stephenson (interviewed by Patrica Cori)
Ancient, Time-Tested Practices Designed to Expand Consciousness
The concept of evolving human consciousness is not new; in fact it has been with us through the millenniums… Many practices such as yoga, meditation, contemplation, vision questing and others have as their ultimate goal the expansion of consciousness… Western religions take more of a summative or testing approach to the purpose of life, rather than the formative or developmental bent favored in the East. For example, in the Abrahamic religions of the West and Middle East… followers of these religions were given “commandments” or told what to do and how to act… No developmental techniques are mentioned; obedience to the law is demanded… Most Eastern religions operate with a more developmental direction… The idea of existence for man in these doctrines focuses on learning from life experiences in order to grow to be a better person (more highly conscious, compassionate, understanding etc.).– Paul Marko Ph.D.
Raising Your Vibration or Frequency
You Don’t Have to Immediately Understand This… Just Practice & Observe
Exploring consciousness is observation, not opinion. I realize how confusing descriptions of consciousness can be. You do not have to immediately understand what is being pointed to… Just acknowledge the mystery of consciousness, drop any fixed views you may have about it, and keep practicing.– Phillip Moffit, Awakening through the Nine Bodies: Exploring Levels of Consciousness in Meditation link and link
A concept that is closely related to the expansion of consciousness is expressed by the phrase “raise your vibration (or frequency).” This is usually distinguished from consciousness evolution in general in that it references specific lifestyle practices designed to refine the mindbody as a vessel for increasing consciousness.
When our physical, mental, and spiritual health is compromised, it drains us of the vigor and energy we need to realize our goals. This imbalance can happen for many reasons, such as low immunity, exposure to external wireless radiation, or high-stress levels – to name a few. By contrast, enjoying a well-rounded sense of well being can keep us centered and drive us to realize all that we set out to achieve. And that’s why today, we are sharing 50 resolutions to not only raise but also protect your vibrational energy – so you can enjoy a year full of centeredness and harmony in the future! Scroll down and choose the habits that most resonate with you.– Jane Knight, Omnia, 50 Resolutions For 2022 To Raise Your Vibrational Energy
Practices to raise your vibration may include:
- Eating foods as close to their natural state as possible and avoiding chemicals, preservatives and processed foods
- Spending time with an animal
- Thinking about who or what you love
- Watching the sunrise or sunset
- Healing traumas and psychological wounds
- Experiencing regular periods of solitude, silence, inactivity
- Taking a shower or bath, feeling how you are cleaning more than your physical body but also your energy body
- “Refusing to bully yourself into doing things you don’t have the energy or motivation to do right now – far better to nap in peace than labor under duress… refusing to make war between the various factions within you… stopping the arguing with yourself and instead listening to your heart” (source)
- Restoring your personal power through conscious choice
- Practicing gratitude
- Being of service
- Releasing attachments, including the attachment to results of action (See also: Aparigrapha, Ishvara Pranidhana and Surrender)
- Engaging in physical movement such as walking, dancing, yoga asana, etc.
- Being in nature
- Disconnecting regularly from devices
- Listening to music that uplifts you, and music tuned to 432 hertz
- Stare up at the sky during the day or at night
- Placing crystals on the body or nearby
- Expressing joy
- Speaking mantras or words of appreciation
- Observing a relatively consistent sleep schedule
- Eliminating or minimizing “heavy” influences such as negative people, sensationalism and so on (See also: Pratyahara Philosophy)
- Seeking inspirational teachings
Near death experiencer and cancer survivor, Anita Moorjani offers this “check-list for living a life of love.”
- Love yourself UNCONDITIONALLY.
- Realize your own MAGNIFICENCE.
- Know that – You are your own guru. All your answers are inside you.
- Fall in love with where you are now.
If you’re sick, don’t fight it. Embrace it. Only when you approach your health challenges from a point of love can you overcome the fear.
- Ask yourself, “What brings me joy?” And do more of that. We tend to do what we think we should do, rather than what our heart tells us to do. Follow your bliss and do what you love!
- Express yourself fully. Ask yourself: “Am I allowing myself to express who I am? Am I being this person because I want to be accepted, or because it is who I am?”
- Be centered in your true essence. From the place of pure centered-ness, miracles are possible. It’s about being, not doing. When you are in the space of being, miracles are possible.
- Remember that the only things that limit you are your own beliefs.
- Don’t let a fear of failing or displeasing others run your life.
- Know that nobody is better than (or less than) you. We are all equal. Love everyone as they are.
The following two videos provide a comprehensive, visual lecture on this subject. If you’re short on time, jump to the second video (30 minutes) which speaks most specifically to practices for raising your vibration while still also providing excellent introductory teachings. When you have time, the first video (18 minutes) is also excellent and sets a greater foundation of understanding about the power of sound and vibration.
On one hand, there are practices such as meditation that can lead to expanded consciousness.
On the other, there are “peak events” or transcendent experiences (oftentimes seeming to be spontaneous) whereby a person experiences a higher state of consciousness — which may be temporary or sustained. In the 2010 book, Waking From Sleep, Steve Taylor calls these “awakening experiences.”
Ordinary, and Yet Haunting in Their Crystalline Clarity
Stephen Cope writes, “One beautiful June afternoon, as I stood on my ladder, I was overcome with a feeling of what I can only describe as profound and utter well-being. For no apparent reason, I dropped through some unexpected crack in my ordinary mode of consciousness into a state of ‘time out of time.’ The most mundane moments were infused with the deepest sense of satisfaction. The enchanting perfume of the iris at my feet; the steady hum of farm machinery in the distant field; the cat curled up in the sun, watching; even the rich oil smell of the paint. It all seemed so completely right. I was utterly OK.” Ecstatic oneness. Stephen Cope’s description of his experience of entering samadhi while painting a house one summer is so compelling because the images he describes are at once so ordinary and yet so haunting in their crystalline clarity. He is recounting an experience we have all had, and yet have probably discounted and relegated to our subconscious.– Rolf Gates
Awakening Experiences are Relatively Common
People of every culture and every period of history have described such experiences. Awakening experiences seem to be universal… They have occurred in essentially the same form all over the world throughout history… They give us a glimpse of the world of beauty, meaning and unity that lies beyond the normal human world of separation and suffering – a new world which it is possible for us to inhabit permanently.– Waking from Sleep
There is no one way that people report having had awakening experiences but there are many elements people have in common. Most awakening experiences include the following:
- Clarity, revelation, awareness of a deeper or higher level of reality
- A sense of harmony, meaning, unity or oneness
- A sense of everything being intensely real and alive
- Inner peace, joy, bliss or ecstasy
- An altered experience of time
One way that this awakening occurs has been reported by many, many people who have died and returned to life — called near death experiences or NDEs.
Illumination, Oneness, Transcendence, Samadhi, Enlightenment
Steve Taylor categorizes awakening experiences along a continuum of intensity:
In the most basic kind of awakening experience, our normal “shadowy” vision of the world is transformed and we gain something of the intense vision of the world of children and some indigenous peoples. It’s as if a new dimension of reality is added, as if the world switches from monochrome to colour… At roughly a medium intensity… we become aware of the presence of a spirit-force in the world, pervading all things and the spaces between things. We realize that it’s this spirit-force that… is the source of the harmony and the radiance we can see everywhere.– Waking from Sleep
Awakening experiences have been described by many names including:
While there are no hard and fast rules regarding definitions, oftentimes when the state of awakening is maintained, it may be called:
- Sahaja Samadhi
Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell Ph.D. described a transcendent experience of oneness that he experienced in space. The experience is a classic description of the so-called awakening experience.
- “Mitchell was a naval aviator whose doctoral dissertation, from M.I.T., was on guidance systems in low-thrust interplanetary vehicles. Nothing in his training had equipped him for a sudden discovery of the oneness of all things. ‘It was a subjective visceral experience accompanied by ecstasy,’ he would later tell a yoga magazine.” (source)
- “The stoic Texas-born test pilot and Navy veteran embarked on a decades-long quest to reconcile the worlds of science and metaphysics, interstellar exploration and personal growth.” (source)
- Mitchell’s experience of oneness changed the trajectory of his life, and as he later searched for understanding of what had happened to him, he found the descriptions of samadhi accurate reflections of his experience. (source)
Samadhi is a Sanskrit word that is described as a profound connection or unity, an experience of losing one’s self / identity / ego. The experience of samadhi is discussed extensively in The Yoga Sutras. In fact, the entire first book (of four) is devoted to the subject of samadhi.
Vast numbers of people have described and demonstrated the results of awakening experiences. A few famous stories include those of Paramahansa Yogananda, The Buddha, Eckhart Tolle and near death experiencers.
But many people that haven’t become public figures have also had transcendent experiences. In his book, Taylor cites various collections, studies and surveys of awakening experiences, indicating they are far more common than most of us would think. He writes:
Why did I spend so long thinking there was something wrong with me when in reality around a third or even two-thirds of the people around me had had similar experiences to mine? The problem is that these experiences are slightly taboo. Like talking about sex in Victorian England, it’s not socially acceptable to tell our friends or colleagues about these visions of oneness and harmony and feelings of bliss.
Altered or Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness
In What is Consciousness? we learned that consciousness is the fabric of the universe and the eternal driving force for all that exists. We are an individual expression of this magnificent whole, like a wave in the greater ocean of consciousness.
When we speak of our individual consciousness, we encounter the subject of “non-ordinary” states of consciousness, also called “paranormal experiences.”
Question: How do non-ordinary states of consciousness relate to consciousness expansion and ascension?
Answer: Consciousness expansion and ascension tend to be accompanied by non-ordinary states of consciousness.
First, please note that the phrase “non-ordinary” sets up a comparison to a state of consciousness that is presumably more common and seemingly more correct. The “ordinary state” being referred to is that of “normal waking” or “rational” consciousness. And yet, that state is limited to the teeny-tiny fraction of reality which is accessible via the physical senses.
Normal Waking Consciousness is But One Type
Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the flimsiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence; but apply the requisite stimulus, and at a touch they are there.– William James
The Sleep of Our Normal State: The Restricted, Narrow False Experience of Reality
Some materialistic scientists believe that awakening experiences are caused by abnormal brain functioning. As a result, they claim they have no more validity than a hallucination or a dream and the vision of the world they give us is an illusion. But I believe that the reverse is true: these experiences are more real than our normal state. It’s more accurate to see them as a kind of ‘waking up’ from the sleep of our normal state. Our normal consciousness is narrow and restricted and gives us a false and limited experience of reality. That’s why, in awakening experiences, there is a sense that our consciousness has become wider and clearer and that we have gained access to a deeper and truer level of reality which is normally hidden from us.– Steve Taylor
Examples of “non-ordinary” states of consciousness include:
- An altered experience of time or space that enable a person to know things not known in “ordinary” states (such as exemplified in remote viewing)
- The direct exchange of thoughts, called telepathy
Accessing Other States of Consciousness Needs Cultivation
As humans we have access to other dimensions of consciousness. This interdimensionality is part of our innate being, but it is something that has to be cultivated or developed… Our inner world of perception also has many dimensions or realms. Most of these are inaccessible to us much of the time, because — quite frankly — we have been trained to focus on only a small bandwidth of internal experiences as significant — namely those that make us more productive or useful to society. While such practical states of mind are undoubtedly important, they are not the only states open to us. In order for you to experience these inner worlds of perception, you have to alter your brain activity through meditation, or some other method. Then you can have a direct experience of these worlds and the rather amazing phenomena that take place within you. But until you experience these worlds directly, it is as if they do not exist, because they are outside the range of your perception.– Tom Kenyon
While this lesson on ascension refers to non-ordinary states of consciousness (because they are a part of awakening experiences), we don’t delve into that subject here. There are many sources of research and support regarding paranormal experiences. Stanislav Grof MD and PhD is one.
Stanislav Grof, MD, PhD, a foundational luminary of transpersonal psychology, has led a life devoted to exploring, and guiding people through the interior realms of consciousness and the psyche. In his newly published book, The Way of the Psychonaut: Encyclopedia for Inner Journeys, Grof offers us a comprehensive overview of his life’s work, the legacy of transpersonal psychology, and guidelines for navigating non-ordinary states of consciousness… IONS founder, Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, experienced a unity with the cosmos when returning from the moon and looking back at Earth. This kind of “non-ordinary state of consciousness” is described by Grof as a Holotropic state, one that moves us towards wholeness… To explore the depths of the psyche, to pierce through the veils of our own interiority, this is the way of the psychonaut. We all have access to these states of consciousness, and with the proper guidance and guidelines we can traverse these inner realms to bring forward new ways of being in and seeing the world. Grof is a pioneering example of someone who has devoted their life to this journey of exploring the heights and depths of what it is to be human.– Ian-Michael Hebert
Cosmic Consciousness / Exoconsciousness
Here we consider the awareness of a specific type, that of life beyond human physical life on Earth, including: the soul, the Source or Divine Creator, and advanced beings and civilizations from other places and times.
Is Cosmic Consciousness the Same as Samadhi?
In the 1921 book, Cosmic Consciousness, Richard Maurice Bucke M.D. defines “cosmic consciousness” as a “consciousness of the cosmos, that is, of the life and order of the universe.” He goes on to describe the elation and “consciousness of eternal life” that goes along with it:
The prime characteristic of cosmic consciousness is, as its name implies, a consciousness of the cosmos, that is, of the life and order of the universe… Along with the consciousness of the cosmos there occurs an intellectual enlightenment or illumination which alone would place the individual on a new plane of existence – would make him almost a member of a new species. To this is added… an indescribable feeling of elevation, elation and joyousness, and a quickening of the moral sense, which is fully as striking and more important both to the individual and to the race than is the enhanced intellectual power. With these come what may be called a sense of immortality, a consciousness of eternal life, not a conviction that he shall have this, but the consciousness that he has it already.– Richard Maurice Bucke M.D.
We might ask if there are qualitative differences between what Taylor calls “awakening experiences” and these experiences that Buck calls “cosmic consciousness.” When we look at the vast numbers of transcendent experiences that people have reported over humanity’s history, we appear to be getting glimpses of an endless possibility of experiences on a vast array of consciousness experiences. They all seem to be different expressions of one universal experience: tapping into the great field of consciousness.
Awareness of the Life and Order of the Universe
On the other hand, Bucke seems to point to a particular aspect of illumination that isn’t present in all samadhi experiences. That particular aspect is an awareness of the “life and order of the universe” beyond humanity’s physical experience on Earth. This awareness may come in the form of experiential awareness of the individual as a soul, of the Source or Divine Creator, or of advanced beings and civilizations other than Earth humans.
Similarly, Paramahamsa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi and widely accepted as an enlightened spiritual teacher, had an intriguing response:
1949 saw a worldwide “stir” of sightings of “flying saucers” or UFOs. The newspapers generally made light of the reports, but Paramhansa Yogananda’s brief comment was: “What people have seen is true. Those phenomena are not imaginary.” About interplanetary travel, he once said, “Modern man thinks that everything must be accomplished by physical force. There are many subtler forces in Nature. These will come to light as the general sensitivity of man becomes more refined. Someday it will be a simple matter to travel from Earth to Mars, or to other planets.– Conversations with Yogananda
A more direct statement of this aspect of illumination is offered by the Institute for Exoconsciousness:
Exoconsciousness The ability of human consciousness to connect, communicate and co-create with extraterrestrials and multidimensionals.
Exoconscious Human A human who integrates, develops and applies the extraterrestrial origins, dimensions, and abilities of their consciousness.
Exoconscious Civilization A post-disclosure culture prospering with tools, technology, teaching, healing, and art co-created with ET and multidimensional contact and communication.– Institute for Exoconsciousness
“Collective consciousness” is a term used to refer to not only the summation of, but also the synergistic effects of, individual consciousness levels on societies, culture, civilizations and planets.
Each of us is living in a field of energy — and each of us contributes to that energy through our consciousness. Each human is like a tuning fork whose brain is vibrating at a specific frequency. Therefore, a whole community can vibrate in harmony. By definition, the collective community manifests an energy field that is powerful and palpable enough to support the individuals sharing that field.– Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D.
Measuring Individual Consciousness Levels
Terminology: How do Spiritual Experiences Relate?
First, a note about terminology…
Let’s clarify how the expansion of consciousness and experiences of awakening, transcendence and samadhi are related to “spiritual” or “mystical” experiences.
Modern experts, as quoted below, find that these words tend to muddy the waters. Therefore, these terms are unlikely to help us examine the subject in the manner we are covering it here.
The real difficulty… is getting almost anyone to agree with what we call “spiritual.” The term is virtually useless for any sort of coherent discussion.– Ken Wilber
I have found that some people believe the term “spiritual experience” refers to a psychic or paranormal experience, while others use the term with a purely religious meaning (e.g., religious visions,”hearing” the voice of God or Jesus)… The terms “spiritual” and “mystical” experience are sometimes used interchangeably… However, the terms “mystical experience” and “mystic” are most commonly used by religious scholars (particularly in the Christian tradition), referring to “spiritual experiences” or to individuals who have reached a high level of “spiritual development” in the context of religion… [In some uses] a “mystic” is a person who has managed to expand and intensify his or her normal consciousness, and so has a more intense and truer vision of reality, and a new relationship to the world – including an awareness and sense of connection to the divine.– Steve Taylor
Measuring Individual Consciousness Levels
Whether a person uses meditation or has a spontaneous experience, how do we know if they’ve succeeded in expanding their consciousness? Can it be measured in levels? What does it look and feel like?
As individual consciousness is uplifted, conditions simultaneously take on a new aspect. One’s whole universe is transformed for him as he ascends in consciousness… As ignorance is overcome by Intelligence, so human sense is overcome by Spiritual consciousness… Spiritual awakening, or awakening to self as Spirit, is the uplifting of individual consciousness into eternal Truth.-Valiant Thor
Measuring a person’s “level” of consciousness or growth in consciousness over time isn’t something that western science is well-equipped to do. Quantum mechanics provides measurable data that contributes to a Science of Oneness, whereby we can equate aether with the field of greater consciousness. As for individual consciousness, however, we must look to different branches of science and research. The science of frequency and vibration, including the human body’s response to the earth’s magnetic field, may hold answers. Noetic Sciences and “consciousness studies” that typically study “paranormal” activity are other potential sources of data. Meanwhile, here are some general thoughts for consideration.
Developing consciousness may exhibit in such ways as:
- Feelings of well-being
- A sense of being connected to others, to something in oneself, and/or to something greater than oneself
- Enhanced experiences of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition or other “paranormal” abilities
- A knowing of one’s spiritual beingness, the immortality of one’s soul or essence
- Experiences of illumination, oneness, samadhi, enlightenment
Our consciousness is driving us to assemble and survive through the creation and support of a global community.– Bruce H. Lipton Ph.D.
Ascension or The Great Shift
In a Nutshell
Ascension usually refers to an uplifting of the collective consciousness associated with a sustained increase in energy frequency great enough for consciousness to ascend to a different level.
Also called the Great Shift, “ascension” refers to a change in the collective consciousness — specifically, an “uplifting” that is accomplished through a shift in the frequency of energy from a denser or slower frequency to a higher or faster one.
Depending upon how the term is being used, ascension may refer to a change experienced by individuals, a group, or the consciousness of the planet herself. So while the phrases “ascension” and the “Great Shift” are most often describing a collective change in consciousness of humans on Earth, it can also refer to individual and planetary consciousness.
While ascension may be described as the evolution, expansion, or awakening of consciousness, it’s also often referring to “a graduation into a higher level of existence.” (The Ascension Mysteries) In this use, ascension is a leap in consciousness — enough of a leap that our consciousness ascends to another “density” or “dimension.”
- The current stage of human consciousness on planet Earth in the 21st century is often said to be in the process of shifting from a third to fifth density or dimensional frequency.
- There is no widespread agreement on the terms “density” and “dimension” and many sources have defined the terms in many ways.
- DIMENSIONS might be defined as perspectives. A third-dimensional view provides a perspective that is material, for example — one that includes height, width and depth. A fourth-dimensional view is sometimes described as a perspective where past, present and future are seen as one (in contrast to the linear perspective of time in 3D). A fifth-dimensional view may be described as a perspective whereby polarities are seen from a unified perspective.
- DENSITIES can be seen as endless gradations of energy frequency within dimensional realities. In other words, multiple dimensions of consciousness can exist in this third-dimensional (3D) reality, for example. Since frequencies are numbers on a scale, there are endless frequency levels (densities) — just as there are infinite number of divisions that can be made between the numbers 0 and 1, for example. Despite the endless possible gradations, densities are often described in whole numbers e.g. fourth density, sixth density, etc. (To learn more about energy frequency, see below.)
More on Frequency
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.Nikola Tesla
The movement of energy — specifically the frequency — is associated with consciousness ascension. So here we investigate this topic more closely.
Underlying Existence is Patterns of Perpetual Motion
Many, many humans have peered into the material world, curious about what it’s made of and what is causing it to exist. Let’s summarize what they’ve found and how they found it:
- Physical eyes are unable to see beyond the material, so to investigate more deeply requires something else. Yogis (and others) used consciousness to make their investigations. Western scientists (and others) used technology. Nikola Tesla might be said to have used both.
- Whether using consciousness or technology, all have found the same thing underlying the physical world: perpetual motion and patterns.
- Although the movement patterns are unseen by the physical eyes, they exist nonetheless. We refer to them as “energy.”
- In physics, energy is seen as expressing itself in cyclic patterns (more specifically, a flashing on and off due to an expansion and contraction). Most often the patterns are described as wave forms. The waves are measured by how many pass a fixed point over time — a number that defines the energy’s frequency.
Everything We See and Don’t See is Made Up of Frequencies
It’s not often that science and ancient wisdom agree wholeheartedly on… well… anything. But surprisingly, both agree that everything we see (and don’t see) is made up of frequencies. Zoom into any matter that appears to be still, and you’ll find billions of atoms vibrating together with different energies, as if in a cosmic trance. Scientific research has shown that every cell in our body depends on a symphony of resonating frequencies to signal, coordinate and function with other cells and organs. When these cells resonate harmoniously with each other, they promote healing, calm, and overall balance in our body and mind.– Jane Knight
Vibration, Frequency and Oscillation
Things wiggle… They vibrate; they shake; they oscillate. These phrases describe the motion of a variety of objects. They even describe the motion of matter at the atomic level… Wiggles, vibrations, and oscillations are an inseparable part of nature.– A Physics Tutorial
The terms vibration and frequency are often used interchangeably. In physics, there are more precise meanings:
- Wave — transfers energy without a net movement of particles, involves a periodic repetitive movement (source)
- Frequency — the number of waves that pass a fixed point in time
- Vibration or Oscillation — a motion that repeats itself (source)
Some non-physics perspectives use the words differently (particularly, a contraction toward neutral is termed vibration and expansion away from neutral is called oscillation).
Connecting Frequency Rate & Density of Matter
Thus, how fast energy waves move determines the frequency. Differing frequency causes a difference in matter.
The frequency rate is what sets the rhythm of particle pulsation. This then allows the formation of wave spectra within dimensional reality fields. The process also determines the density levels of matter in the material realm. As the frequency rate of matter increases or flashes faster, matter becomes lighter and less dense. Since our body is made of matter, it will also become lighter and less dense as our frequency increases. – Elevated, Frequency Vibration & Oscillation-Energy Patterns That Affect Your Well-Being
Mathematical Formulas That Underlie Existence Aren’t Invented; They’re Discovered
If we want to understand how the material world is created and what keeps it in a perpetual motion, we need to study the language of the living energy codes of matter, which is made of light, sound, frequency and vibration… Physicists can describe the Universe using only mathematical formulas… These formulas were not created by scientists; rather, they were rediscovered.– Shift Frequency, Frequency and Vibration: How They Create the Structure of Matter and Life
Frequency is an expression of energy. Energy expresses itself in wave forms. However, at its core it is actually made of cyclic patterns of scalar waves (standing waves) that flash “on” and “off.” This causes it to pop in and out of existence. This state when energy flashes on and off is known as partiki phasing. The speed at which partiki contract and expand determines the frequency rate of scalar waves. If we only look at frequency as a wave, then the definition of it would be the number of waves that pass a fixed point in a time cycle. For example, if it takes 1/2 of a second for a wave to pass a fixed point in the time cycle, the frequency would be 2 per second… Frequency is all around us and can be found in all things. Whenever we take a breath, we are inhaling frequency. Whenever we listen to music, we are interacting with frequency… Since we are always interacting with this invisible wave of energy, we should learn to understand it so that we can comprehend how it affects our lives… The true state of reality is made of energy that flashes on and off. This creates energy codes and frequency patterns that are processed by our consciousness to give us the perception of time and the solidity of matter… Frequency gives matter uniqueness and characteristics. So when the consciousness of our mind and body processes the energy patterns of an object, we see shapes, colors and textures. The combination of frequency, vibration and oscillation are some of the major energy properties that organize matter into sacred geometries. This gives matter “life” and the ability to structure itself into objects.– Elevated, Frequency Vibration & Oscillation – Energy Patterns That Affect Your Well-Being
