This Discovery Could be the Creation of Everything!

An object exposed to its resonant frequency will vibrate in sympathy with the sound. The wavefronts pushing on the object will arrive at just the right time to nudge the object with greater and greater amplitude each cycle. A good analogy is pushing a friend on a swing. If you push at random times, you will not be able to get your friend moving very well; if you push at a specific time in each swing, the swings will get higher and higher.

The easiest way to find the resonant frequencies is to place the object next to a speaker and also place a microphone attached to an oscilloscope next to the object. Have the speaker play a tone at a given volume, and then without changing the volume slowly change the pitch (or frequency). If you watch the oscilloscope you will notice that at certain frequencies the amplitude of the wave, which is proportional to the volume of the sound being picked up by the microphone, will be greater than at surrounding frequencies. These are the resonant frequencies, and are detectable as the sound energy absorbed by the object is re-emitted more efficiently at these pitches.


Sound is a powerful tool for any metaphysician. It can be linked to colors, chakras, moods, pathways on the Tree of Life and many other uses. Resonance is a scientific principle based on a phenomenon in acoustics. The ancients knew about resonance and understood the principle that if two bells are tuned exactly the same, when one is rung, the other will also begin to ring without being touched. If something vibrates at a specific frequency, other things with that same frequency will also begin to vibrate, providing there is air between them to transmit the vibrations. Furthermore, the secondary vibration will move back to the initial and make it begin again. The philosophy hidden in this phenomenon is deeper than the physics behind it and can reveal much about life to the industrious student.

There's an old saying in Hermetic Qabalism: as above, so below. This axiom implies that everything that exists in the microcosm, namely you, is reproduced somewhere in the Universe, in some form or another and vice versa.

We are a reflection of the cosmos and the cosmos reflects us.
This belief was the basis for many of the Hermetic teachings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus and should be a focus of contemplation and investigation by every individual. It not only makes sense, but will be found to be true, over and over again, with a minimum of study.

Since resonance is linked to vibration and there are viable theories claiming that everything is vibrating, we could infer that there must be resonance going on at all times. Of course, this isn’t necessarily a scientific way of looking at things, but it fits beautifully in our world of the mysteries. We find ourselves in possession of a way of looking at the world that allows us to be more sensitive to what we resonate with and what makes us cringe.

Not all we sense that’s vibrational is sound, and thankfully we can’t hear, or see, all the vibrations that are in our world. Can you imagine being able to hear ultrasonic or subsonic tones? It might be novel in the beginning, but it wouldn’t take long to become bombarded by the din of the cosmos. The same is true of light. X-rays, Gamma rays and all invisible waves of electro-magnetic frequencies, including radio, television, microwaves and cell phones, are constantly before us, but luckily invisible.

This reminds us that just because something can’t be seen, it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.

Awesome post. I discovered cymatics awhile back and have been wanting to do my own experiments with it. Interesting stuff.

If you do them, let me know how it goes.

The Word - Moody Blues

This garden universe vibrates complete,
From some we get a sound so sweet,
Vibrations reach on up to become light,
Then through gamma and out of sight.

Between the eyes and ears there lie,
The sounds of color and the light of a sigh,
And to hear the sun, what a thing to believe,
But it's all around if we could but perceive.

To know ultraviolet, infrared and x-rays,
Beauty to find in so many ways.

Two notes of the chord, that's our full scope,
And to reach the chord is our life's hope,
But to name the chord is important to some,
So they give it a word and the word is Om.
