Oh, we love the question. Thank you.
This may be a little bit difficult to understand, but we want to start by answering that resonance is sympathetic congruence.
When something is congruent, it is in balance one with the other. And when it’s sympathetic, it means that there is a connection, an awareness of that connection.
So, resonance is the awareness of balance within connection.
You are all in resonance right now. And the way that you can feel resonance is because you feel balance, you feel peace, you feel like there’s no judgment, you feel like you’re not having to defend. You can smile, and the person smiles back.
Or if you’re reading a book, you can feel resonance, you feel a connection with what you’re reading. You don’t have to do anything to feel that.
Within this perspective then, the difference between resonance and vibration is that vibration tends to be talked about as a measure of something.
From a scientific point of view, when you start talking about vibration, what you’re talking about are things that you can measure, like amplitude and frequency.
But it has turned into a judgment.
Things that have “lower vibration” are not as nice as things that have “high vibration.”
Within resonance, there’s no judgement, because it’s an awareness of connection in balance.
So that means that theoretically, something that’s high vibration, and something that’s low vibration can resonate, because they are aware of the essence of the connection, rather than the physical attributes of the connection.
One of the reasons this is important is because as you shift and change, and as you become more and more tolerant of your integration, you also need to become more and more tolerant of your environment.
The whole point of the conversation on resonance is about what supports a fluid awareness and connection with yourself, with the world, with All That Is.
Resonance gets you much further down that path than being focused on vibration.
Resonance also raises within you an awareness of the difference between the static view and the dynamic view.
In the static view, everything is looked at from a linear point of view, three dimensions of space and time.
Whereas dynamic is moving, and you begin to move your awareness into the possibilities that come when your awareness is connected through the infinite and the eternal.
You’re challenging yourself, basically, because when you’ve spent your whole life thinking about everything from a linear point of view, it’s a challenge to think about things from a dynamic point of view, from the point of view of the infinite and eternal, and that everything, all of awareness, is within this present moment.
When you look at things from a linear point of view, it pulls you out of the present, because everything then becomes about what was past and what’s future, and your focus is, generally speaking, not clearly on the present moment.
Whereas if you have a dynamic awareness of things, you’re more likely to be in the present moment when you are being aware and when you are making choices.
So it has the effect of helping you to be more responsive than reactive.
Reactive means that you’re more thoughtless about what you’re doing, and you move out of clear awareness, whereas with responsive, you’re taking a breath basically before you decide what you’re going to do and how you’re going to do it.
