What The ****? The Law of Resonance?

Over the past few days I have been reading Dov Baron’s book, “Don’t Read This….Unless You Want More Money“(Affiliate link to buy the book) and have been really fascinated by what I’ve been learning from him. One of these things was the Law of Resonance, which to be honest with you I had never heard of. However, I was familiar with The Law of Attraction from things like The Secret and What The Bleep Do We Know?! but I had never come across the Law of Resonance…

So, of course I get curious and start doing more research and then I come back and share it with you fellas and ladies!

If you are anything like me, you probably understand that the Universe has certain scientific laws…such as the Law of Gravity, which keeps us from flying off of earth and into space. I’d totally love to fly so I sometimes wish I could change the law of gravity…but I haven’t figured out how to get around the law of gravity. The law of resonance is another strict law like the law of gravity.

The Law of Resonance

This law describes the way that everything in the universe is linked and how it all communicates to act as a “whole”. Now don’t get all freaked out on me, I’ll try to make it simple to grasp 🙂

Everything, that includes you, me and everything that we attract (including our feelings and emotions) are all connected. The way that we all are connected is through vibrations, or resonance.

What does Avatar have to do with this?
This just arrived in the post.. YEEEEEEAH!

This movie was absolutely awesome. When I first saw it, I immediately felt like the Na’vi(the native people on Pandora) were onto something. They understood that there is a connection between all things on their planet and that all life was engaged in a connection, which meant that one thing would affect all things. The Na’vi not only understood this, but they also were guided by it.

They understood that everything in their environment is both in affect and effect with them. They understood that what their thoughts and feelings were, was affecting the life force of everything on Pandora.

This might be a little out of your thinking at this point….it was for me originally, so I completely understand what you’re thinking.

If you are anything like me, you may be getting excited about the Quantum Physics that’s behind this, however; some people may not quite grasp it. Basically Quantum Physics explains that at its most basic level that everything in the universe is vibrating energy. (Including you, your feelings, thoughts, etc) Everything about us has a vibration.

This short video is for anyone who likes to see the scientific truth behind Quantum Physics… (when I saw this, I was kinda shocked)

Check out what happens when one tuning fork is struck and the other isn’t…

As you’ll notice, when one fork is struck a note comes out. Ta-da!!! No surprise there, right?

Well, what’s cool about this is that only one of the forks was struck, however they both produced the same sound after the energy of the sound wave hit the other fork. There was no barrier put up by the second fork that said “no, I will not produce the same frequency as you”…it merely accepted and reflected the same frequency. An interesting thing here is that the Universe reacts the same way to our feelings and energies.

In your face enough?

When I first heard about this in the book, I literally walked over to my mirror and was staring at it for a while… could it be that the universe’s secret can be all around us in the form of a mirror? That is absolutely correct and it really was a slap in my face for me. I thought that I had understood how the law of attraction was working, but in reality I was a little hesitant still.

Now, I know that the universe merely acts as a reflecting mirror for my feelings/thoughts.

A little exercise that I want you to do…

Think about the last time you had a bad day…you know, the days where everything seemed to be going bad and the days that never seem to end. Guess what? There’s a reason for this and you can change it!!!! The universe is acting like a HUGE mirror on your feelings. If you are having bad feelings, guess what the universe is going to give you more of?

If you guessed bad feelings, pat yourself on the back. *pats self on back*

The universe doesn’t care to analyze and try to make our feelings change. We are the ones who are in charge of the way we feel and the universe merely reflects how we are feeling and gives us more of these feelings. Now if the tuning fork video didn’t really make sense before, go back and watch it again. Notice that the second fork begins to vibrate/resonate with the first. This is sympathetic resonance with the struck tuning fork. How crazy is that? I mean, the second one doesn’t use any effort, it just complies… the universe does the same thing 😉

The second tuning fork didn’t analyze whether it was a good idea to resonate with the first fork, it didn’t say “oh this is a bad thing or a good thing?”, it just responded to what it was receiving…the frequency from the first tuning fork. The universe is EXACTLY the same. It responds to what you are sending it.

Now here’s something else I want you to do… it’s easy though, so don’t get all worried.

Think of yourself as a living tuning fork sending out vibes for the next week and see what changes. Then, come back here and share what changes you experience. I’d love to have you share your thoughts on this and if it helps, please share some stories with others through the comments below.


Much love,

Chris…great explanation of “what we exert ~ we receive”.
Even if you are sitting alone in your living room ~ you can change the vibrations of your environment with the energy of your thoughts and the resulting effect on your body. It's too easy to open yourself up to the “bad” vibrations…

Love the tuning forks, I had never seen that, but it reminded me of the “Butterfly Effect”

Thanks Yvonne! You're absolutely right about how we can change our vibrations even sitting in our living room. I do this as much as I can when I feel a little “down”. I try to either remember a trip I took somewhere, or a fun moment in my life and it often feels like a weight is literally lifted off of my body and disappears.

How did it remind you of the “Butterfly Effect”? I've only seen the movie…is there another butterfly effect that I'm not aware of? I'd love to hear more!

Chris Hughes - May 11, 2010 Reply

which audio link? the youtube video?

AlanJ - May 11, 2010 Reply

It turned out to be the post and the video once I got to it! It's weird – for some reason your site seems to load really slowly and I think that was the problem – it kept timing out. Anyway, it was well worth waiting for!
BTW – my internet connection seems OK, so I don't know whether it's a problem with your server or just one of those strange internet things that happens!
Keep up the great work – fascinating post!

re the Butterfly Effect… for me, it's my reaction to an event and the eventual outcome that it has on the people and places around me. Similar to one of those commercials: someone opens a door for someone else, that person picks up a toy a child dropped (and smiles at the parent), then that parent gives some extra change to someone at the checkout, etc.

My thoughts control my actions, which have farther reaching effects than the mind can conceive. Something as simple as me smiling to myself, could affect another persons day, and change the outcome of an otherwise disastrous event.

It's all about the Law of Resonance

Chris Hughes - May 12, 2010 Reply

ooooh!!! I never knew that was the name for it! I always just assumed it was part of “karma”. However, in the movie; I Am Legend…I noticed that the butterfly was also an underlying theme in that movie. The womans tattoo on her neck, the glass breaking into the shape of the butterfly and at the end the butterfly flying away..

I like looking at the butterfly effect in the way you mentioned though, I did a similar thing walking back from my final..I saw a family moving stuff out of their dorm room and helped open the door for them to their car because they all had their hands full. (It might have helped that the girl was cute, but I would have helped anyone) After doing this, I felt a sort of positive vibe for the rest of my walk to my apartment…I didn't think of them paying it forward later on though? Maybe it's an unconscious paying-it-forward?

I'm still new to this new way of thinking and will continue to be a student of it until I start to understand more. I will need to walk around with a smile on my face more often, when I do it consciously, I see people smile more so maybe it is helping more than I realize.

Yvonne, you're awesome. Thanks for helping me along my journey!

Yvonne Lyon - May 12, 2010 Reply

The way I think of the Butterfly Effect is not how the scientific community defines it or how the movie depicts it. Theirs is more on the order of… if a butterfly flaps its wings on one side of the world, it could cause a typhoon on the other side. While my version has the power of changing the world behind it, it works on a little slower scale 🙂

I actually use the term “The B6 Effect” (yes, you heard it here first!) It combines the Butterfly Effect with a little twist on the 6 Degrees of Separation: For every person whose life you touch, it has the exponential power of creating a chain of events that will ripple across the globe. Cool huh?

So I am careful about what I think, say, and do, because it has the power to change a life for the good or bad. ONE person CAN make a difference!

This example is fantastic. Another great one I like to use is with a piano. If you press a key lightly enough so as to not make a sound, then strike an identical note somewhere else on the keyboard, the strings of the first note will sound.

If the piano is not tuned, this sympathetic resonance will not occur. In the same way, we must tune ourselves to what we want (not what we don't want). Thanks Chris!

Edward - May 13, 2010 Reply

This is a great post Chris. I have heard of this before but not thought about it for a while. I guess the marketing of “Law of Attraction” had taken over some mind-space LOL!
It is amazing how our body works in conjunction with everything else in the world. I believe we are all made of energy that resonates with everything around us that we connect with. What we give off will penetrate the things and people around us. We should keep this in mind through all that we do in a day.

Thanks for sharing.

Make it a great day!
God Bless,

Hi Chris,
Great article, it made think I really need to go see Avatar as I must be one of the only people alive that hasn't seen it yet lol.
Some great content though.

Keep smiling

Hey Chris…I love this stuff. I actually teach on this stuff…most specifically in relation to our health. I'm sometimes considered a bit “out there” because I absolutely love Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics. In fact…the study of these things really “energizes” me as for most people it drains their energy. It is good to know there are others out there as well who really drink this stuff up.

Interesting post. This brings me back to my days in physics class – ah good times!

John Stapleton - May 19, 2010 Reply

Saw your comment on Tim Ferriss' page about your Dad's response to a joke and being yourself. I agree with transparently being yourself. A company selling personal brochures talked about sending out 1,000 brochures and either having a 1% impact on all 1,000 people or a 100% impact on just one person. The first gets you nothing, the second gets you a client, fan, friend for life.
Soon after I was introduced to By Referral Only(R) and realized that if X number of people like me, the most likely place to meet more people who would like to do business with me is through those people. I have been working a referral-only model since (13+ years now).
So yes, tell the joke and connect with those who get it – and get you. Those who misjudge your intent? Go back and look at the tuning forks when they are tuned to different frequencies… The game is finding those you resonate with.
Thanks for the post. I'm going to draw from it and this note on my own blog. Have a great week!

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

haha Yuri, good memories of physics class or bad ones? I did absolutely TERRIBLE in my physics class in high school. I did pretty decent during the actual classes and labs because I had partners that were good in it. On the regents final exam, I'm pretty sure I got a 46. I remember taking it and drawing a blank on so many questions(I didn't need the class to graduate). I started drawing random pictures of animals and sad faces on the questions I didn't know the answer too haha. Fun times

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

Thanks Paul! You're absolutely right, the piano is crazy in how that works as well. I could have definitely used that as another example in the post!

I like it! “If the piano is not tuned, this sympathetic resonance will not occur.. In the same way, we must tune ourselves to what we want.”

So every morning we need to make sure to tune ourselves and our thoughts to the proper frequency in order to align ourselves

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

thanks Ed! The marketing for the Law of Attraction definitely has been a very powerful concept and has definitely taken priority over the other laws that govern our lives.

You bring up some great points! Have you seen Avatar? If you haven't, I think you'd like it!

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

haha Chris, it definitely is worth a watch. Now that it's out on DVD you can rent it 😉
It took me a while to go see it as well though, so no worries man 🙂

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

Oh definitely Bruce! It gets me all fired up and excited about the possibilities. It definitely hasn't been easy accepting it because it was so new-age and “out there” for me when I first heard it. The thing is, the more I learn about it, the more I seem to understand and realize that this really is the way that the world is functioning.

Maybe i'll need to have you do a guest post on your specialty pretty soon if you'd be interested in that, then you could share your expertise!

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

Thanks for stoppin over bro, we definitely are vibrational spiritual beings and Dov's book has helped me a TON, even though I have felt a little silly doing some of his exercises in the book…but i know that stepping out of my comfort zone is when major changes are made, so I'm down for it 🙂

Chris Hughes - May 19, 2010 Reply

Hey John, it's great to have you here!

Damn man! 13 years of referral-only sounds like an awesome way to be running your business! It's probably a lot more fun as you get to truly work with people who understand YOU for YOU. Where can I find more information about the referral-only model? I've got the book Endless Referrals by Bob Burg but haven't finished it yet. I have been using those techniques for my business and have gotten 3 clients through referrals but would always love to get more and more 🙂

Please let me know when you come up with your blog and share it here so I can read/see it!

brucebackman - May 19, 2010 Reply

I would be happy to…although I would not consider myself an expert relative to the actual scientists who live this stuff. I simply have studied it and discovered more than the majority of the population out there. So I have more expertise than most people but not an expert.

And…yes, I would agree. The world really does function according to these physical properties. The stuff that “feels weird” to people is that it is believed that the dynamics of quantum mechanics is of a spiritual nature and it irritates their comfort zones. The reality is though that there is nothing “spiritual” about this stuff…it is simply part of the physical laws of nature that we are further discovering all of the time. These laws are still subservient to the truly spiritual realm…which is another whole topic…very fascinating stuff!

Wow Chris,
That video demonstration of resonance was stunning. Like you, I have understood and practiced the Law of Attraction for a while. I see now how the Law of Resonance interacts with attraction. The potential power of this insight is mind boggling. Thank you for sharing such value. You Rock!

Dr. Adam Sheck - May 20, 2010 Reply

Thank you for this wonderful post! I use the tuning fork often in describing to clients the difference between sympathy (sympathetic vibrations) and empathy (which is a conscious choice to vibrate with someone). This is another great example and extension of the LOA.
Thanks again,
Adam Sheck

Chris Hughes - May 21, 2010 Reply

it's crazy how the more I am reading and learning, the more I am able to understand and start to manifest 🙂 I'm glad you enjoyed this Krista.

Chris Hughes - May 21, 2010 Reply

The tuning fork is a great example of it! I never truly understood it before reading the book either. It seems like my vibrations are starting to resonate with others who are on the same frequency as myself 🙂

Life's truly amazing and getting better everyday.

Thank you for the comment Dr. Adam!

Chris Hughes - May 21, 2010 Reply

Well as long as you can help us out, you are the expert 🙂

You're right about it truly not being spiritual either, but something that has always been here and it just takes us into discovering this to truly tap into it. There's definitely a rabbit hole that is never-ending here and I LOVE IT! 🙂

A couple of things I want to share with you Chris…In my town there is a man who has traveled the world and developed an alternative therapy using tuning forks. I may be lining him up for a radio interview. Second is another book that you may want to check out in relationships to mirrors and the universe or God…It is old but one of the best I have read for challenging concepts and well developed story line. It is called Mister God, It is Anna. The last point I will leave you with is that there are a lot more Universal Laws and they all interact with us and each other intricately. One that I am working with these days is the Law of Balance. The world is endlessly amazing . So glad to hear you are fully exploring it.

Hey Rebecca,

Thanks for the reference. That is so cool. I remember seeing it in the movie What the Bleep do we know. It is amazing the power of our words and thoughts can have on the fundamental component of our body which is water. I have been reading “The Biology of Belief” by Dr. Bruce Lipton – Amazing work.

Yeah, I just say Avatar a few weeks back. Excellent movie. It ranks up there with the movie the Matrix which had some similar themes.

Steve Vernon - May 22, 2010 Reply

Like you and so many others, Chris, I was introduced to the Law of Attraction via “What the Bleep” and “The Secret”, but soon found out they were only superficial introductions to a (pardon the pun) whole universe of natural laws that are continually at work in and affecting our personal reality, whether or not we believe or are aware of them — just like, as you say, the law of gravity.

I really appreciate your use of the tuning fork and the mirror as perfect analogies of how all this works. Another wonderful resource is a web site called “The Quantum Attraction” (http://theQuantumAttraction.com), which is chock full of links and information about universal law and its modern understanding the quantum theory.

Gives a whole new meaning to “attraction marketing”, doesn't it!

Chris Hughes - May 27, 2010 Reply

you are absolutely right about those movies just being simple introductions to what has always been here 🙂

I'll need to definitely check out the quantum attraction and learn some more of this. You're absolutely right about it changing the meaning of attraction marketing 🙂

Chris Hughes - May 27, 2010 Reply

I'd love to hear that interview when it's set up! The book is “Mister God, It is Anna”? I'll need to check it out

The world is definitely endlessly amazing and I'm glad i've had the opportunity to learn from people like yourself and others who have been exploring it and can help guide me 🙂

As for the tuning fork guy…I will try to remember to tell you. Here is his website http://www.iwillwin.ca/tuning-fork/. He told me he traveled the world learning different healing modalities then developed this

This is really amazing. We have a something in my primary business called Energy Resonance Technology. They can bombard certain substances with frequencies and it will hold that frequency. The demonstrations are so cool. It goes even further than what you speak of above. Even diseases send out a frequency and we can resonate with that vibration and hold it. There is a whole field of study that has to do with resonance and frequencies and healing disease. Amazing stuff.

Thank you for your post. I found it because I was looking for the connection between ‘the law of attraction’ & ‘the law of ressonance.’ The Secret just barely scratches the surface of the Truth. I am finishing the book, ‘Why Is This Happening To Me… Again?’ by Dr. Michael Ryce, and now a light has pop’ed on inside my brain! Ressonence is awesome (the law of)! It’s totally true! What happends when you go out and your in a great mood? You end up meeting vreat people! The truth is the same if you go out angry at the world… you end up meeting a bunch of crumpy folks!
Thanks for the reassuring info and examples, chris, and have a blessed day! =O)

John, you’re absolutely right man! If you’re angry, you meet people who are also angry… if you’re happy, people are happy. It’s crazy how it works, and seems so weird to me….but it’s part of how life is so I’m just going with it 😉
