If you were to look at anything under an electron microscope – your lunch, yourself, your t-shirt, space dust, moon rocks, the bricks in your house, a slice of cheese – anything at all – you would see it’s made up of atoms. And those atoms are vibrating. It’s one of the first things we learn in physics at school – everything is vibrating. All the time. And everything vibrates at a particular frequency.
If you heat something up or give it energy in some other way (think microwave ovens) it vibrates faster. If you cool something down it vibrates less. Everything vibrates at a frequency and everything has its own frequency. When you agitate something at the correct frequency, you can break it. Have you even seen the footage of the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge that began to twist and turn in high winds before breaking apart? Or an opera singer breaking wine glasses by matching the frequency of her voice to the natural frequency of the glass? Did you see the “wobbly bridge” in London give visitors an unexpected ride on its opening day? Look closely and you’ll see that slowly, people on the bridge started to walk in step with each other, matching the natural frequency of the bridge. This is the reason marching troops of soldiers break step when they cross a bridge. Because because frequencies interact with each other, and they harmonise.
If you cause something to vibrate, that vibration can be passed to something else. If you put two tuning forks next to each other they will harmonise and find a common frequency. It’s how the coils in the transformers that charge our laptops work. It’s how radios work. It’s how signals are transmitted. It’s how the planets in the solar system revolve around the sun. It’s how the universe holds itself together.
Everything vibrates and everything has a frequency. The neurons in your brain are vibrating and transferring electrochemical energy along their pathways to send signals from one place to another, and this energy – this resonance – can be detected by brain scanning machines. Even thoughts have a frequency.
Have you ever heard someone say something that you can completely relate to, and thought “that really resonates with me”? That’s because even ideas have a frequency. And when you’re thinking about, or discussing ideas with someone who’s “on your wavelength” (it’s no coincidence that has become a common phrase) you are harmonised with them. You are aligning your thoughts and ideas with theirs.
Not all frequencies are beneficial though. Microwave ovens use radio waves that are at just the right frequency to agitate water molecules. This is good when you want to heat up food, but considering that your brain is made mostly of water, you wouldn’t want to stick your head into a microwave oven.
And what about mobile phones? What happens when the molecules in our body harmonise with the frequencies emitted by that electronic box that we hold next to our head every day? It’s something that is still being debated, but experiments have produced a wide range of varying and conflicting answers to that question.
It’s a question that Lucy Blyth, the MD of Global EMF Solutions takes very seriously. That’s why she runs a company that makes and sells Energy Dots. These are little magnetic stickers that attach to mobile phones, computers and other electrical devices and are tuned to harmonise the potentially harmful frequencies they emit and make them much less harmful.
