Resonance
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

by John Beaulieu, N.D., Ph.D.



"It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing." Duke Ellington

Resonance comes from the Latin verb resonare, meaning to "return to sound". It means to sound and resound, as in an echo. Usually we think of resonance in terms of objects such as bells which when struck continue to ring or resonate the orginal sound. Another type of resonance is called sympathetic resonance. When we strike a tuning fork another tuning fork of the same pitch will begin to vibrate with the first fork. Resonance can be understood as a merging created when energy moves back and forth between two or more bodies.

The opposite of resonance is dissonance. Dissonance happens when energy moves back and forth between two or more bodies without merging into unified pulsation. The pulses beat against one another. Resoulution happens when dissonance becomes resonance. Our personal sensations of dissonance, resolution, and resonance in our daily life serve as sonic guides. Learning to listen to, differentiate, and appreciate these sensations in daily life is fundamental to BioSonic RepatterningTM.

When we meet somebody special or do something just right, we experience resonance. The longer lasting and deeper the experience of resonance, the more ecstatic we become. Our language is filled with words that ring with the taste of resonance. "Being in tune" or "we are on the same wave length" describe resonante experiences. Making the connection, being in the groove, or just plain "wow!" are further examples. When something is just right we say "it clicks."

Imagine that the whole universe; everything we know, including cars, computers, airplanes, houses, buildings, lakes, oceans, continents, our bones, flesh, and nerves is a fountain of dream images generated and sustained by a submerged sound. Further imagine that everything we do and think, whether good or bad, moral or immoral, is an attempt to seek out and merge with that sound. Our goal is to return to the source of the fountain. Although we may identify with the object of value ie: a man or woman, a car, etc., the real attraction is the resonance we experience when in the presence of that person or thing. The experience vibrates us like a tuning fork and becomes a sonic homing buoy confirming our inner journey.

As children our playfulness leads us from one resonate experience to another. Teeter totters, swings, kites grabbing the wind at the right moment, catching or hitting a baseball, riding a bike, skipping a rock, and bonding with a doll or stuffed animal are the abundance of a childs world. Children soon learn the value of pushing forward of leaning backward on a swing. They will try again and again until they get the "right feeling" of the swing. This is a moment when the thrust of the pump harmonizes exactly with the natureal rhythm of the swing. They don't need classes or intellectual reasons, for their sense of resonance, which they somehow "just know," become both their guide and goal.

Pretend that you are an ethereal being floating in drifting currents of light. One day, as days go in light oceans, you begin to hear special sounds. When you float nearer there is a feeling of glowing radiance. There are two sounds and they are beginning to merge. Your light body begins to pulsate. Surrendering to the sounds you enter an estatic state of resonance..............
...........when we arrive in our new bodies, we immediately seek resonance. A baby bonds with its mother and father. Watching a new born baby and mother together is a wonderful experience. Their bodies are like tuning forks that vibrate in unison. I remember the indescribable feeling of the birth of my son. I am in the delivery room surrendering to the rhythm of labor. Push after push I breath in unison with my wife as my son pulsates his way into the world.

In the "new" quantum physics matter is perceived as resonate particles. Particles are created when electrons and protons are accelerated to near the speed of light. Collisions create a burst of energy in which a particle takes form. The energy of the collision keeps resonating or feeding back into itself, like a bell that is struck and continues to ring.

In the universe of particle physics, matter is simultaneously a particle and a wave. Because it is a wave, each particle is also a specific frequency or vibration. Therefore, in the subatomic world the way something vibrates determines what it is. Remember that not every collision creates a particle; only the collisions that resonate create particles. Physicists who explore the sub-atomic world for particles call what they are doing "resonance hunting."

The physicist Werner Heisenberg borrowed two words from Aristotle--potentia and actuality to describe his experience of the quantum reality. The world "not looked at" was potential. For Heisenberg, the quantum wave was a picture of the unexamined potential of reality. Quantum waves are not existence or actuality, but the tendencies towards existence. The parallels between "musical experience" and the sub atomic reality are remarkably similar. Physicists seem to rely mostly on numbers and instrumentation to "see" and map resonances. An artist relies on his or her senses and intutions.

Communication is a resonance between two or more people. Cognitive resonance occurs when someone talks about an idea or concept that we agree with. Politicians always speak in generalities to heighten their chances for cognitive resonance with potential voters. Emotionally we speak of affective resonance. It is the source of the terms sympathy, antipathy, empathy, telepathy, and apathy. When we pick up emotional states and feelings from another person, we say we are sympathetic. The person with the feelings is like a tuning fork setting off similar feelings in another person. If the other person is opposed to the feelings, then they resist and become dissonant or without resonance. This is antipathy. Empathy means "into feeling." It is a state of merging with another. We allow ourselves to resonate with the vibratory field of the other until we are the other.

The ideal is to remain conscious of our self during the empathetic response. Conscious empathy is the foundation of healing arts and the key for understanding another persons experience. When we are empathic, distance as we know it ceases to exist. We are both in the same resonate field. It is therefore possible to experience the other at great distances. This is the telepathic response or feeling response at a distance. Apathy means no feeling. When one is apathetic there is no resonance.

Resonate communication on a spiritual level is called communion. Although health professionals are trained to focus their attention on mental, emotional or physical processes during empathic response with their clients, they often report a special communion between themselves and the other.

Faith healers bypass these levels and focus only on the spiritual. They lay their hands on the body and allow themselves to empathetically resonate wherever spirit leads them. The resulting interaction between the person and healer becomes a divine communion. A resonate "returning to sound" creates a healing response. In this sense, regardless of academic training or analytical understanding, we all must become faith healers for our insights and studies to be effective.

I remember a story told by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. She was in charge of training psychiatrists to counsel dying people. The young doctors knew a lot about the psychodynamics of dying as well as the physical condition of the patients. However, Kubler Ross noticed that when the doctors left the room, the dying person was quite often agitated and upset.

One day she noticed that when the cleaning lady left the patient's rooms they were at peace with themselves, breathing easier, and more open to talking. She asked the cleaning lady what she was doing. The cleaning lady, who hadn't even graduated from grade school, said she had experienced a lot of death in her family. She said she just "felt" for the people and would just sit with them a moment while she cleaned up. Kubler Ross realized that her ability to "just sit" and be with a dying person was what the doctors lacked. To the dismay of her colleagues, she made the cleaning lady her assistant instructor.

The experience of empathetic resonance through touching has been given many names by bodyworkers. Dr. John Upledger calls it "melding" and sees it as the prerequisite of all good bodywork. "The idea is to meld the palpating part of your body with the body you are examining. As this melding occurs, the palpating part of your body does what the patient's body is doing. It becomes synchronized....... The objective is to have that part of your body which is examining and palpating a patient do exactly what the patient's body is doing, and would otherwise be doing even if you weren't there. " Milton Tragger uses the term "hook-up." Dr. Randolph Stone, the founder of Polarity Therapy, called it "tuning into the energy."

The synchronization of bodies is traditionally called "achieving rapport" in verbal counseling. In Neuro Linguistic Programming it is called "pacing." Without pacing there can be no communication. The research of Dr. William Condon uses microanalysis of filmed human interaction to reveal precise synchronization of rhythmic body movements between two people interacting. This synchrony is invisible to eye and unconscious to the participants.

Dr. Milton Erickson considered it a necessity to "get into a patients reality." He would sometimes spend years understanding and piecing together a patient's view of the world, body movements, and speech patterns. The psychiatrist R. D. Laing illustrates the principle of "getting into a patients reality" in his description of a "Schizophrenic Voyage." Laing will spend days with a patient, to the point of even living in a closet with them to experience resonance with their reality.

The resonant experience of love is so powerful that we sometimes feel as though we would do anything not to lose it. First there is resonance. In her eyes I perceive myself as mysterious, unknown, exciting and vibrant. She is the lover that awakens my heart and each throb is a revelation, a vision, and a dream that becomes a remembrance of who I am. She is the embodiment of the sweetest elixir. We drink and meld until the other disappears into the mists and is devoured by the force of union.

The experience is so magnificent that we want it to happen forever. However the moment we try to keep the experience, the feeling is gone. The same person that we fell in love with is suddenly different. It is as though we reached out and put the palm of our hand an a ringing bell in an effort to keep it ringing forever. We are shocked when the quality of the ringing diminishes. To make things worse we grab the bell even tighter and sometimes even hit it to get to ring again. Eventually we give up. We can not sustain this "grabbing energy." We say the "life is out of the relationship" or "the thrill is gone."

During a session, a client described his relationship with his wife as "the ring is gone." He had done everything to get it back. And it became clear from the tone of his voice that "everything" meant every possible way of grabbing and holding onto her. Resonance, or the ringing bell quality of a relationship is only nourished through surrender. This implies giving up the other in order to have the other. It seems like a paradox. Experienced from sonic consciousness it becomes very real.

Everyone wants resonance. Regardless of our behaviors, relationships, occupations, looks, cultures, lifestyles, and tastes we are listening for resonance. When each experience of resonance we move closer to our source. The closer we come to our source the more we are "beings of sound mind and body." Resonance is everywhere and always available to us. Everyone has a front row seat in the cosmic concert.

Ah yes 12... that has been around for a very long time.. what you say of harmonics as they apply to music are only perceptions or how they sound to us..



But the ancients knew about 12... it has been in use in so many ways.. from the origins of the writing or record keeping.. which by the way began at an interesting time in history.



The Maya Calender uses the number 3. They saw the earth time cycles as 3 cycles of 3... they saw them as step..and or waves. The end of the last 3rd (grand) cycle, 2nd (minor) cycle happened on (our calender) Aug-14-3114 BC.. They called this cycle "technology"..

This is also when writing was first used in Sumeria and soon after by their neighbors in Egypt... At least that is history's record.. But the Maya had already used writing and record keeping... example.. the calender.



The end of the 3rd grand cycle, 3rd minor cycle will happen on Dec-21- of this year. On 12-21-12...... If you add them they are 3+3+3=9... The Maya also saw us (man) as receiving our guidance from a divine source in waves... The last wave started on March-9-2011 and ended on March-9-2012...or 3-9-12... all divisible by 3.



This last wave is called "universal knowledge"... in which we received understanding of a universal nature.. that is not specific to "our" world.... For March to December we are to digest or process what we received until the end of the grand and minor cycles.



To many who are "aware" of what was received.. a time of turbulence will follow and not all will survive.. The calender ends then... and many see this as the end and it will be for many. But the calender also says that ... "we will no longer live as we have" ... and by 2025 life will be very different...............



You can look up 9th wave on-line............................................... Lou

very interesting... u impress me lou with all this knowledge!!!

Yes.. multipliers.. or in engineering these are called harmonics ... they only "seem" to our senses as you say... all part of perception. But perception is not involved in what produces physical resonance... only phase relations of the same frequency...



Even in a laboratory you can add and subtract intensity of a note with phase... but physically to add or produce resonance you need to lead or lag in phase. This is why we can "mistake" resonance.. that is the feeling... with the feeling of an adrenaline rush..



Resonance in a bell will occur when the bell is struck... in engineering terms this is called a "shock".. A shock or hit imparts an entire spectrum of frequencies to the bell.. the bell simply resonates at its "natural" frequency.



In matters of spirit.. there is a frequency that seems to be inherent. When we become aware of a truth.. it is as if we are struck.. much as a bell.. So we resonate... just like the bell...................



..... All this is just part of who and what we are.. in life.. we need to use language to be understood.. so we have words.. very often many different words to express the same thing.. A frequency is an event in what we call time.. it is a cycle of repeated events that we can call.. a period... a note.. a frequency or a rhythm..they all have the same mathematical expression...

You use words very well to express yourself!

Yes in music they are also called harmonics... They are the base of our chords the most important relation are 1/2, 1/3 and 1/5.... This is what makes all major chords.... But in our system of 12 equal "temperized" notes (i'm not shure of the word in english)
Only divisors of twelves represent the real harmonic... The rest is a good approximation up to the seventh harmonic.... Lol I am trying to explain music in scientific terms lol does that make sense,
I suddently have a doubt if I am understandable lol?

apple,

There are many who sell "music" that tries to use harmonics of the frequencies.. for me, perhaps because I logically know the differences.. they just do not work.



The aim in meditation is to set our physical awareness aside.. to a point where the mind is in the Alpha or Beta State (called Alpha or Beta Brain Waves). this happens at between 5 to 12 Hz.. This can be measured and it is done when one is in a clinical condition or situation. As you may know.. these frequencies are far below the hearing range of humans. Here however there are two very important side notes...

........1........The universal "tone" is between 10 to 12 Hz.

........2........These frequencies though cannot be heard.. they can be "felt"...



So.. the question is..

why would creation use such low frequencies..??

why is it important to feel something rather than hear it...??



In every day brain function we are flooded with information though all our senses, which for many includes music. For this, we process every thing through our brain... but which part of our brain are we using..?? And are what we call feelings being processed in the same way as our thoughts, how can we tell the difference...??? Are we now thinking or feeling...???



Yes.. in every day activities we do seem to be going faster.. yet we are not.. we cannot... It is just that we receive far more information a higher rate. we can only process at the rate "we" have set for ourselves. To do this, we narrow the "input filter" so only certain kinds of info is allowed to get passed.. The larger portion of info is passed by.. This is a much greater amount than what we take in.. that makes it seem we are going faster because of the amounts of "unused" is far greater.



For a long time now.. many say that to be in "tune".. one must raise our inner frequency.. it sounds good to raise rather than lower... this of course is in contradiction to the frequencies of Alpha, Beta and even Theta..(which is about 40 Hz.. just at the start of human hearing) which is mostly used for healing.



But also.. that is yet another contradiction.. surely for those who use Reiki.. But then, I do not understand why there is a charge for being a Reiki healer ( I am a level one). Once you read and understand how Reiki was first found.. and understand the process.. it takes so little time and effort see it is only more mumbo-jumbo.. so far as any $$ is concerned.



Our every day world is filled with such contradictions.. When I began to realize this, I decided I needed to start over.. this began on July 4 1984.. In that time.. I have needed to re-start many times.. My next re-start will be any day now.. or so it seems.

I am waiting to see if my next book will be a better explanation.. its at the publishers now and I just got the artwork for the cover.. I suggested some small changes so I wait to see how that will look...



As you can see.. I am not a teacher.. or I don't see myself that way. Often I will answer a question with a question as I have done here.. that brings a better understanding even of the question asked...



................................................................... Lou

Wow so much info!
Did you know that in example 5, 10, 20,30 ,60 hrtz and each time that you multiply by 2 you get the same note but higher... And all the important relation in music are mathematical. So in example if I take the 10 hrzt that could be more a rythm than a note, we can transpose this to find the coresponding note but higher... You may already know this but each note that we hear are in reality a "rythm" that is so fast that we perceive it as a continuous note of a given frequency...

apple,

Yes.. much of what you say is so true.. true because you are a mammal and all mammals are born with a ... Limbic System ... or brain. This is why I suggested you look it up.. The vibes you feel from others is called "Limbic Resonance".. often called Empathic Resonance.. Within this system is where we feel the emotions we have so many names for.. Yet.. and sadly.. these emotions are most often confused with and are called thoughts... Thinking and feeling are not at all the same.



We are all born empathic.. though so many see this as some kind of gift...it is not a gift for a few.. but part of all of us who will allow the sensitivity to allow the awareness.



I am not a musician of any kind.. yet there is a clear distinction between some one who is playing and others who play an instrument of any kind. Many call this "playing from the heart"... But to me it is a simple matter of right and left brain function.. The same is true with other aspects of our lives in matters of body and spirit.



I worked all my life ( well most of it) in engineering in the aerospace industry.. My work was in the laboratories where we used sound and other mechanical means to produce resonance in things. Early in my work we used unclaimed bodies from the morgue to test how much physical punishment a human body will take as well as the equipment, such as rockets, before they just fall apart.



This, as well as the use of "meditation" so as to establish a state of mind so as to allow the mind to be stilled so as to allow "thoughts" to be subdued.. This produces what many call a trance like state.. yet in reality the "calmed" mind is yet in resonance with the universal tone or flow.. This "frequency" is often miss understood because of the place it holds in our own (imagined) spectrum.. Yet.. in a laboratory this frequency is easily measured and is found to be quite the contrary to popular beliefs....



........................................... Lou



PS.... the terms one uses are what one understands.. but learning more can only bring every one to use terms that do not contradict each other.............

wow thank you I greatly appreciate this scientific explanation, you clearly know what you are talking about!
I do want to learn to correct terms to express myself, like you said, without contradicting myself ;-)

so the frequency of the calmed mind is in tune is in ressonance with the universal tone? that was what I though.... many people think that having trance like state is to be closer to the "universal frequency".... this may be illusionary....

many people say to go to higher vibrations.... I have a different idea about this....I think to lower our vibration, brings us in tune with the universe.... the world is going too fast, faster is not going to go any better in my view...

yet.... we can connect to this frequency on different octave.... we can be connected higher.... our frequency could go 2x faster, we stay in the rythm but its hard to maintain.... do you understand what I mean??... and I please apologies cause I fail to use scientific terms in english cause my mother tongue is french...

do you know the frequency in hertz that you are talking about... I would like to know cause this could be useful in music...
I would like to make a song using this frequency has the base note... and also make the rythm a lower octave of this frequency, so the rythm would be in tune with the sound... and see what feelings it makes...

In reading (some) of this post, I see some misnomers that seem to come from a biased view.. perhaps not by you but by those you quote...



... Resonance ... Everything that is of matter and has a substance has, as an intriguing aspect of its make up, a frequency or note where it must react. The human body has this in its physical make up as does a wine glass and a bell. There are instances that a bell must ring. In astrophysics it is called "string theory" where all matter, from an atom to the universe has an instance where it must also respond.



In spirit, there is also resonance.. this is where one becomes "aware" of a universal truth. Yet spiritual resonance can, and is often confused with, simple physical reactions brought about by simple adrenaline.. not at all the same.



To understand the differences one starts by "understanding" the difference between thought and emotion by learning "how" it is we learn and why it is that we know.. often called "intuition". This is also simple physics and anatomy.. one need not be highly educated for this.



The other is in what is called ... a patients reality ... Learning the why's and when's of our psycho-dynamics... I have found the books by Dr's Helen Schucman and William Thetford, Professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons very informative. Known as ... A Course in Miracles ... they deal with not only the human psychology but also how it "blends" with our spiritual needs. Of course, being teachers as well there are lessons and guides and their own set of dogma.



It may interest you to look into ... The (general) Theory of Love ... as presented in the body of work on and about ... The Limbic System ... This is where we learned to respond to our early versions of fear .... often called "fight or flight"... Though we as humans have evolved far past many mammalian kin.. we still use this part of our brain (system) to process the many option open instead of the primitive fight or flight.



....................................................... Lou

hello lou, as a musician I have studied the resonnance of sound and have found much correlation in the way.... how could I say.... In the way our body resonates.... depending on how we feel....
as an empath I feel emotion of people just like waves of inaudible sounds and there is much correlation with music I belive. Yes this text is not from me, and I must admit I have not completely analysed every aspects of it...lol
To give you an example of what I feel... when I see somebody frighten, sad or stressed, I feel waves comparables to chaotic sound....
When somebody is calm and at peace, slow, calm, and regular waves, is what I feel. compared to slow calm music, its harmonious waves.
When somebody is happy, focused, excited, fast, but regular waves...
theses waves that I feel, I belive are related to the emotions of people. and I belive they are contagious... this is why I belive we ressonate with each other with what is called in music sympathic ressonace... like the example of the tunning fork that ressonates when another is struck.. like when you struck a guitar string.. other notes in similar mathematical proportion will sound as well .....
In a way I belive our bodies emanates music....
and I belive also there is a foundamental basical note to the univere... and if we put ourselves "in tune" to this note... we ressonate...
hope this explication helps :-)

I realize that I do not neceserally use the correct scientific terms... see this as an analogy
