Understanding Our Vibrations in Life:
Adapted by Paul J Ferris
Place a glass of water on a table, you can probably see on its surface the concentric oscillatory motions created by the small movements that occur nearby. These oscillations are caused by vibrations that propagate through the floor, table, glass and all other solid surfaces.
These vibrations are also important sensory stimuli that we use to detect vibrations that are extremely important in how we perceive the world.
When a mobile phone is on silent and vibrating in our hands or pockets when announcing an incoming call we perceive these vibrations so clearly, it is due to specialized receptors that transduce them into neural signals sent to our brain. These results suggest that feeling a phone vibrate or hearing it ring is ultimately based on the same brain codes.
It is the same psychoacoustic effect detected in the auditory system, where the perceived pitch of a sound changes with both frequency and loudness. Thus, despite the fact that sounds – which travel through the air – and vibrations – which are transmitted through solid matter; are processed by different sensory channels, they are both perceived and encoded similarly in the brain.
Some discoveries reveal the existence of an ancient sensory channel, which could be an evolutionary precursor of hearing.
Anxiety and shaking
Anxiety and worry are emotions everyone feels at some point. Feelings of anxiety can trigger other symptoms, such as:
- muscle tension
- difficulty concentrating
- increased heart rate
- uncontrollable shaking or trembling
Tremors caused by anxiety aren’t dangerous, but they can be uncomfortable. Sometimes losing control of your body when you’re having anxiety can quickly escalate into other symptoms.
This adapted article will explore the connection between shaking and anxiety, and leave you with some ideas for how to treat this symptom.
Panic disorder and anxiety that leads to attacks have some things in common, but they are not the same condition. Both conditions can lead to physical symptoms that feel out of your control, including trembling and “the shakes.”
If you have generalized anxiety disorder, ordinary situations may make you feel intensely fearful.
You may find it hard to concentrate.
You may also experience your mind going “blank” as the fear and worry from your thoughts take over.
In addition, headaches, muscle aches, and other pains you can’t explain may accompany your anxious thoughts.
Panic attacks don’t always have a clear cause. When you have panic attacks due to a certain trigger, it’s called an expected panic attack. That means they’re somewhat predictable.
The symptoms of a panic attack can be seen and identified by someone else, while the symptoms of anxiety take place mostly in your mind, and may be harder to spot.
When you’re having severe anxiety, it can cause physical symptoms. Perceived stress, danger, and high levels of emotion usually set off anxiety.
Anxiety can lead to a panic attack, but it doesn’t always. Similarly, having a panic attack doesn’t mean that you have an anxiety condition.
Shaking and tremors
When your body is subjected to stress, it goes into fight-or-flight mode. Stress hormones flood your body and speed up your heart rate, blood pressure, and your breathing.
Your body prepares to deal with the stressor, interpreting the anxiousness as a signal that you’ll need to stand your ground or escape from danger.
Your muscles become primed to act, leading to a trembling sensation, twitching, or shaking. Tremors caused by anxiety are called psychogenic tremors.
Internal tremors are not harmful, but they be can be worrying and may interfere with a person's daily life.
Internal tremors are shaking sensations felt inside the body. They occur without visible movement, which external tremors produce.
A person may experience internal tremors in the trunk, arms, legs, or internal organs.
In this adaptation of “Understanding Our Vibrations in Life” we look at the causes and treatment of internal tremors.
Water composition is the percentage of body fluid as compared to total body weight.
The human body is 50-75% water. The average adult male has 50-65% water and the average female 45-60% water.
Resonance is a vibration that moves through many layers and dimensions of matter and thought. It is a waveform activating a vibration in everything it encounters that matches its vibrational pattern.
An example of this is when you hit a C note on the piano; all of the C strings will vibrate at the same time even if they are lower or higher. And what you hear is a pleasing sound wave of harmonious resonance.
If a D were to be activated at this moment, there would be an uncomfortable disharmony causing a conflict with the C notes.
Unhealthy cells in a body behave like the D note in a C-Note resonance.
Dissonance upsets the entire harmonic function of organs and tissues. Since our bodies are made of water-filled cells that vibrate at different frequencies or in different patterns, like music, it is not unusual for there to be some frequencies that are out-of-tune or in-conflict with the healthy cells of your body.
There is a solution that can offset dissonance. The miraculous ingredient is water.
What's water got to do with it?
Drinking abundant water will flood and hydrate your cells and help reprogram a resonant ripple that will affect all matter.
Think of an ocean wave as it moves onshore, bringing water to the land. This wave communicates a healthy vibrational pattern to the dissonant cells or organs in the body that have gotten off-harmony.
Water can also store and carry information in the form of vibrations from healthy living water cells outside the body to the dissonant water cells inside.
You can be healed by the resonance and memory of water that has emerged through pristine springs, after it flowed over rocks and minerals, animals, plants, soil, etc. The resonance of waveforms are considered to be "vibrational nutrients" in music and sound. They all perform the same way a wave of mineral-rich water behaves in the body and mind.
A wave of water carries vibration.
A wave of sound carries vibration.
When any kind of wave penetrates the body, mind, or spirit, the existing cells are influenced by the new vibration. The brain cannot discern between what a healthy wave is and what a destructive wave is. Some sounds, just as some waters, destroy life, while other enhance.
The immediate and simple answer to prevent destructive vibrations is to bless your water. It changes the vibration pattern immediately. Priest, mystics, and shamans have known this since humans evolved.
In order to create a platform for continued healthy resonance in the body, drink lots of filtered water and immerse yourself in clean, healthy water as much as you can. The water carries messages of health through skin barriers into the cells, but also through thoughts and feelings
Remember, water is a sacred substance. Honour it by containing it in something special and non-toxic. By consciously considering the condition of all water you use, you can control what vibrations enter your energy field and maintain a high resonant vibration in your body. This is like a perfectly tuned musical instrument.
Some neuroscientists are generally sceptical of supernatural connections to our feelings and perceptions. And yet, feeling the “vibe" of a room or situation is a common human experience, no matter your spiritual or philosophical outlook.
A place might just not “feel right" – or, the people in a particular room might get a “funny feeling." There have been many explanations for it. One theory, for instance, says it's the strange facial expressions or vocal tones that we pick up from others subconsciously.
According to the researchers, humans can detect chemosignals, through smelling bodily excretions, such as sweat or tears, left over from people previously at that location. Many other mammals transmit chemical signals — for instance, cats leave cheek rubbings or urine to mark their territory. Whether humans send out chemical signals, too, has been a subject of debate, until recently.
Human beings are social creatures who naturally benefit from emotional signalling. When one person in an ancient Stone Age band showed fear — say, when noticing an oncoming predator — if others in the band were tuned into the first observer's emotional state quickly enough, they could take up arms and defend themselves.
Picking up on the fear felt by others is known as "sensory acquisition." Studies have proven that making a fearful expression causes us to breathe in more through our nose, which enhances our perception and speeds up eye movements so we can locate potential dangers more easily.
Disgusted facial expressions, such as lowering our eyebrows or wrinkling our nose, signals to others that something is poisonous, noxious, or rotten. This could save members of the group from food poisoning, for example, by preventing them from eating spoiled meat.
So, emotional signalling helps us to understand one another and communicate in a fast and effective manner, which is sorely needed when navigating difficulties in the environment.
We observed that exposure to body odour collected from senders of chemosignals in a happy state induced a facial expression and perceptual-processing style indicative of happiness in the receivers of those signals." They added, “Our findings suggest that not only negative affect but also a positive state (happiness) can be transferred by means of odours."
Some scientists suggest that good and bad vibes in a particular place – or, the “energy" of it – may, in fact, be our perception of positive or negative chemosignals left over in that particular environment.
For instance, scientists aren't sure how the human brain processes chemosignals, and while a reaction evolves quickly, they don't know how long it lasts. Does it hang on as a sort of emotional residue, or is it shaken off quickly? More studies will have to be conducted to find the answers to these questions. Still, it's a strong hypothesis for why we feel “vibes" and the researchers have provided us with the first evidence-based suggestion for what, up until now, has been mostly relegated to the realm of the supernatural.
Physics of Sound
Sound is produced when something vibrates. The vibrating body causes the medium (water, air, etc.) around it to vibrate.
Vibrations in air are called traveling longitudinal waves, which we can hear. Sound waves consist of areas of high and low pressure called compressions and rarefactions, respectively.
The longer the wavelength, the lower the pitch. The 'height' of the wave is its amplitude. The amplitude determines how loud a sound will be. Greater amplitude means the sound will be louder.
Overtones are the other frequencies besides the fundamental that exist in musical instruments. Instruments of different shapes and actions produce different overtones.
The overtones combine to form the characteristic sound of the instrument.
For example, both the waves below are the same frequency, and therefore the same note. But their overtones are different, and therefore their sounds are different.
The earliest forms of music were probably drum-based, percussion instruments being the most readily available at the time (i.e. rocks, sticks). These simplest of simple instruments are thought to have been used in religious ceremonies as representations of animals.
There was no notation or writing of this kind of "music" and its sounds can only be extrapolated from the music of (South) American Indians and African natives who still adhere to some of the ancient religious practices
Classical music is rooted in Grecian innovations. In 600 BCE, famed mathematician Pythagoras dissected music as a science and developed the keystone of modern music: the octave scale. The importance of this event is obvious. Music was a passion of the Greeks. With their surplus of leisure time they were able to cultivate great artistic skills.
Trumpet competitions were common spectator events in Greece by 400 BCE. It was in Greece that the first bricks in music theory's foundation were laid.
Aristotle wrote on music theory scientifically, and brought about a method of notation in 350 BCE. The work of that genius is still studied today.
The next significant step in music's evolution was by Boethius. In 521 CE he brought the Greek system of notation to Western Europe, allowing the musicians there to describe accurately the folk songs of their lands.

It has long been said that music is mind medicine. Advances in neuroscience and brain imaging are revealing what’s happening in the brain to prove this true.
Research shows that listening to music can reduce anxiety, depression, blood pressure, and pain as well as improve sleep quality, mood, and memory, increase some cognitive functions, enhance learning and concentration, and ward off the effects of brain aging.
Music is so good for your brain because it is one of the few activities that stimulates your whole brain. Because music is structural, mathematical, and architectural based on relationships between one note and the next, it’s a total brain workout.
When you listen to music, much more is happening in your body than simple auditory processing.
A recent imaging study found that music activated auditory, motor, and limbic brain regions no matter whether people were listening to Vivaldi or the Beatles. Research determined that the motor areas process rhythm, the auditory areas process sound, while the limbic regions are associated with emotions.
Music Reduces Stress and Depression
The many health benefits of listening to music including lowering of the stress hormone, cortisol. In one study reviewed, patients about to undergo surgery who listened to music had less anxiety and lower cortisol levels than people who had taken drugs.
The analysis determined that music had documented positive effects on brain chemistry and associated mental and physical health benefits in four areas:
Listening to music triggers the brain’s nuclei, responsible for releasing the feel-good neurochemical dopamine, which is an integral part of the pleasure-reward and motivational systems and plays a critical role in learning. Higher dopamine levels improve concentration.
Science shows that music can help alleviate depression and help a person feel more hopeful and in control of their life. There is even evidence that listening to music can aid in rewiring trauma in the brain.
Playing music with others or enjoying live music gets the brain hormone oxytocin flowing increasing feelings of connectedness, trust, and social bonding.
How Music Enhances Cognition
Music has the power to improve specific higher brain functions and really can make you smarter. In particular, science has shown that listening to music enhances reading and literacy skills, reasoning, and mathematical abilities.
In studies with people who listen to and play a lot of music – professional musicians’, brain scans reveal noticeably more symmetry, larger areas of the brain responsible for motor control, auditory processing, and spatial coordination, and more developed callosum. The corpus callosum is the band of nerve fibres that connects the two sides of the brain to each other, allowing communication.
Learning to play a musical instrument is one of the best things you can do for your brain, at any age. However, if you’re not a musician, just listening to music for enjoyment has positive effects too.
Seniors who listened to specific types of music showed increased processing speed and improved episodic memory. Other tests revealed that listening to background music can increase productivity and enhance cognitive performance and creativity on some tasks.
Music Boosts Memory
Your brain is hard-wired to connect music with long-term memory. Specific brain regions linked to autobiographical and episodic memories and emotions are activated by hearing familiar music. Listening to music has been shown to significantly improve working memory in older adults.
Personal music favourites can often calm chaotic brain activity and enable the listener to focus on the present moment and regain a connection to others. Science has also confirmed that it’s possible to use music to help a young brain retain information and enhance learning.
