In a situation where you have a violin and a piano in the same room and you play Middle C on the piano then the C-string of the violin will vibrate. The principle that this demonstrates is called resonance.
The word ‘resonance’ means to sound again, to reverberate or re-vibrate.
What is popularly known as the ‘Law of Attraction’ is more accurately understood as a derivative of this principle. It is not so much that ‘like attracts like’ as the Law of Attraction is commonly defined, rather it is the understanding that all thingsand objects are energy in form as specific wave motions and movements that are harmoniously interacting, resonating.
The principle of resonance is based on wave interaction.
The Attributes of a Wave:
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event within a specific time.
Wavelength is the distance over which a wave’s shape repeats.
Period is the amount of time required to complete one full cycle.
Amplitude means greatness or size.
Wave interaction as resonance can be demonstrated as follows:
While driving turn on a car radio and tune it in and out. The ‘channels’ or frequencies where the radio provides a clear signal are the locations where coherent sound is heard. Then drive some distance to discover a place where the signal breaks down even though you have not changed the channel (note that if you were to continue traveling and exploring you would eventually discover another distant location where the signal would be picked up again by the car radio).
This example illustrates that for resonance to take place certain factors are required. First the wave has to be broadcast or transmitted in some form. And a receiver that is in the right location and attuned to the correct frequency is also required. When these things are in place the principle of resonance manifests as if by magic and an understanding and application of this principle is a means for you to use your brainwave activity in extraordinary ways.
