Sympathetic Vibrations, Sympathetic Magic

 The thing we most have noticed during this past year when so much was shut down is how much we really need human contact. Perhaps we did not notice it that plainly in the past because so much of our actions were on automatic pilot. We were used to getting together with people for dinners, or parties, concerts or sporting events just as the normal course of living, the same way as we would get up and go to work every morning.

So when most of those options were removed, we first were upset because we could not go places that we liked to go, but as time went on, what we recognized is that what we really missed was being close to other people. So now, as people are getting vaccines and the number of serious cases is in decline, we see movements toward re-opening and we are looking forward to resuming things we like to do with other people. I look forward to being able to go the Renaissance Fair again, Shakespeare Festival, concerts, ball games, dances, fireworks shows, and all those other wonderful things this summer. I enjoy the vibrations of those kinds of events.

Getting together with others is first on our list, then going to places and events is second. In other words, the lockdowns caused us to realize that socializing with other people is primary. We took it for granted in the past because we could. It is one thing to say that you can't go to a ball game or a concert tonight, but it is another to say you cannot go visit your family or your friends.

We also have become more aware of the vibrational and energetic realities of our actions. For example, many musicians have tried to keep their cash flow going by asking people to pay to watch performances on their computer. But the experience of being in the same room with musicians while they are playing opens up our senses in a whole different way when we feel the vibrations of the voices and instruments and we want to sing and dance along with them. These sympathetic vibrations give us another sense of aliveness, and this is not the same presence if we are watching on You Tube or Zoom.

Sympathetic vibrations are also what we feel when we are in a stadium, and suddenly thousands of people simultaneously are on their feet, cheering for their team and we hear the crack of the bat, the ball hitting the glove, while thousands of people are yelling and clapping. It is just not the same watching it on TV. You might have a great camera view, but there are not other people right next to you or around you who are responding.

It's the difference between watching a film of someone walking on the beach and swimming in the ocean. At best, it conjures up memories of how it felt to do that, but it is not like being there.

Sympathetic vibrations are also what we are feeling when we are in the same room with someone who is sharing a heartfelt conversation with us, laughing or crying, and being able to hug someone, sensing what they are trying to tell us because their breath is rapid and shallow, or slow and deep. It is the fragrance of the other person that we sense, the pitch of their voice, the blink of the eye, the connection we feel simply from being present.

How much is this part of our lives? Consider that the concept called Law of Attraction is all based on a principle called sympathetic magic. When we express gratitude for what we have received and what things are going well for us, we are signaling to spirit to align us with more of that vibration. Before Law of Attraction became a buzzword, everyone had heard of positive thinking. When we really like something and resonate with it, we are sending out a signal that we like this vibration and want more of it. Sympathetic vibrations are happening between us and the universe.

So this is a time when we have all become more aware of sympathetic vibrations and sympathetic magic.

During this time many of us have cleared things that we are no longer aligned with and made some new decisions about things that we want to align more closely with. When we are looking at activities, people and things and deciding what to do about them, notice how the sympathetic vibrations confirm for us our directions and choices. Tuning into these vibrations brings us more joy, peace and clarity.

Some vibrations are so powerful you can't miss them while others are more subtle and present themselves to us in quieter moments. As you raise your awareness of your vibrations, can you sense where your alignments are strongest, and where you might need to make adjustments?

There is a vibration in all of our connections and relationships, the music of the spheres, the music of life. Savor it.

I always love hearing from you, so if you feel like sending me a note, calling or coming to see me, please do!

Have a wonderful day!
