Everything Has a Frequency
“We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.” – Albert Einstein
Everything has a frequency. Even our bodies, the body cells can create and receive energy. This communication functions through energy, vibration is the message in that communication that functions by sending and receiving specific frequencies. That is how we make our music. When these natural frequencies become mixed up. So does the body’s ability to self-regulate and maintain healthy functioning. We begin to feel unwell. Maybe we are more tired than usual or have a change in appetite. We may have a hard time focusing or concentrating. We may even become sick when this occurs, the body’s frequency level or vibration must be changed. When we want to listen to a particular radio station, we need to tune into the correct frequency of that station to reach it. Our bodies are the same way. We need to tune into the correct frequencies to reach the optimal state of being. As we go about our daily business in our biochemical meat suits that we call our body, what is the music we are playing daily as we go about our business, we call life?
It was shortly after 9:00am when my cell phone rang. I recognized the name on the caller ID as a former client. I had worked with her son nearly ten years before. He was having a difficult time in school. He was disruptive in the classroom, talked incessantly to others around him and had difficulty staying on, or even completing a task. I helped him gain his composure using neurofeedback training. A process of putting a cap with twenty electrodes on his scalp. It measured his brainwave activity. From the frequencies present and their location in his brain the patterns would show what was working too hard, as well as those frequencies that were not working hard enough. I had a special software program that would monitor the activity of the brainwave frequencies. I could setup a widow of performance. If the frequency I wanted to either up-train if it was performing less than desired or down-train the frequency if it was over performing. This training would influence the dendrites of the brain allowing them to stay within the window of performance that I had setup. Doing this process again and again it would cause new neuropathways to be formed, like a highway in the brain to traffic information and instructions. Thereby training the brainwave frequencies to develop on this new neuro highway that works better than the old one.
Sounds complicated right? For the client it is much easier. For them, they are simply watching a movie. The neurofeedback software would do all the work. It would transpose the brainwave activity to respond to operational window that had been setup. That brainwave activity was required to stay within the desired operational widow. If it did not, then there were consequences. Don’t be alarmed, I am not talking about them being hooked up to a cattle prod to receive an electrical shock when brain did not perform in the desired window. It is somewhat less dramatic.
If the brain was performing either higher or lower than what the operational window was set at, the movie the client was watching would be interrupted very briefly. A different tone would come on if the performance was too high with a different sound if the performance was too low.
As smart as the brain is, it would quickly learn to compensate to increase or decrease the brainwave activity to stay within the operational widow that had been setup so there would be no disruption of the movie. The client did not have to do anything, just watch the movie. They could bring one of their favorite movies from home to watch if it was appropriate and held it attention of the client. Horror movies were never allowed, nor explicit videos that were not appropriate or used for training the brain. This process took place once, sometimes twice a week. As a result of creating these new neuropathways his brain learned how to become less disruptive in the classroom and at home. With his new normal pattern, he was able to complete his homework assignments and stay on task during individual study time, as well as in his daily living. The client was not the only recipient of the change. His increased calmness, focus and demeanor were experienced by his family, teachers and friends.
As I answered my phone, I was curious to see what they were calling about? I asked mom how my former neurofeedback client was doing?
She said, “Oh, he is still doing great and growing like a weed! I am calling about his older brother.” Quickly doing the math in my head I said, “So, his brother would be high school age? What can I help you with?”
“You’re right he is in his last year of high school; we notice he is really struggling to keep up. He wants to go to college, but his practice ACT scores are so low we are worried that he won’t finish high school let alone go to college. You are the first person we thought of since you made such a huge difference with his younger brother.”
I responded, “Since you live close by, do you think he would be open having a brainmap done?”
“He’s right here, let me ask him…he says yes!”
We agreed on a time. They would come to my home office to do the mapping. Since I knew them well, I had no concerns of them coming to my home as opposed to going to my regular office and schlepping my equipment over there to do the brainmap.
I did what I consider standard baseline recordings of 4-minutes each, eyes open, eyes closed and brain on task…reading silently to himself from a book.
I processed the recordings and reviewed the result. There was a very little slow wave in his delta and theta brainwaves; that can interfere with focus and concentration. There wasn’t enough to be that significant. I wasn’t very concerned about it.
What was more alarming to me were two other conditions, happening in the frontal lobes. The frontal lobes are important for voluntary movement, expressive language and for managing higher level executive functions. Executive functions refer to a collection of cognitive skills including the capacity to plan, organize, initiate, self-monitor and control one’s responses to achieve a goal. His brain, where we do our cognitive thinking, was all red… meaning his brain when it was doing a task it was like a run-a-way freight train going full speed. His thinking activity was going a mile a minute…so many thoughts that his brain couldn’t keep up with them.
