An old alchemist gave the following consolation to one of his disciples: “No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.”

Frequency and  the Law of Vibration (Musical Tones depicted visually as Vibration over Frequency).

In the year 1905, Albert Einstein proved that we can break matter down into smaller components and that, when we do, we move beyond the Material Realm and into a Realm in which everything is Energy. This is the Law of Vibration, a Law of Nature that states that nothing rests, everything moves, and everything vibrates.

The difference between the Manifestations of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual result simply from different levels of Vibrating Energy, or Frequencies. So, while the feelings of fear, grief and despair vibrate at a very low frequency, the feelings of love, joy and gratitude vibrate much quicker. The most common unit of measure for Frequency is the Hertz, which is one vibrational cycle per second. All the physical matters are composed of Vibration.

Although most Frequencies exist outside of our normal range of Perception, all can be perceived as both Colours and Sounds. There are seven colours in a rainbow and seven notes in the musical scale. So the colour blue is also heard as the musical key of D, which vibrates at 587 Hz. But what is most interesting is that, if a Frequency is vibrating fast enough, it’s emitted as a colour of Light. If we wanted to convert Sound to Light, we would simply raise its frequency forty octaves. This results in a Vibration in the trillions of cycles per second. So, if a pianist could press a key way above the eighty-eight keys that exist on a piano, that key would produce Light.  

The philosophical and scientific basis for this Law of Vibration can be found in Quantum Physics and in Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Energy is related to matter and the speed of Light. When two frequencies are brought together, the lower will always rise to meet the higher. This is the principle of Resonance. Using this principle, we can actually increase the speed at which the molecules in our bodies vibrate, through our thoughts of love, joy and gratitude. When atoms slow down, third dimensional matter is created; when they speed up, the higher dimensions of Consciousness can be reached.  And the higher our Consciousness is raised, the closer to Spirit we become.

Fear of something is always guaranteed to attract what you fear. The energy of fear attracts like energy and so what you fear becomes what you physically experience. Fear of being without money becomes the circumstances in which you are without money. Fear of being alone, rejected or attacked all become that physical experience unless you deal with the source of the energy which manifests these things - YOU.

Randolph Stone - Polarity Therapy.

Polarity Therapy is a four-part approach to balancing the Energetic patterns of the body. Based on principles developed by Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy combines bodywork, nutrition, stretching postures and attitudinal counseling to free Energy blockages and establish a Natural Energy flow for Self-Healing.

Stone formulated his therapy based on the underlying principle of wireless currents in, around and through the body. It is this subtle Energy flow that gives Life and through which the Soul functions. Quite simply, disease occurs when the flow is disrupted. Polarity Therapy, rather than treating disease, is focused on reestablishing the Natural Balance of this flow, which in turn allows Healing to take place.

Polarity Therapy practitioners concern themselves with the positive, negative and neuter states of the Energetic wiring, flowing vertically and horizontally, and spiraling from the top of the body downward and from the center outward. The center from which the Energy flows and to which it returns, is considered the Source of the Energy and this triune action is what is required to keep the flow in motion.

According to Stone, this circuitry flows in all aspects of Life and is a basic principle in Nature. Everything has a middle with opposing ends, in constant communication and relationship. In this law of relationship, there is attraction (pleasure/sensory) and repulsion (pain/motor). Blockage is more likely to occur in the negative (outgoing) flow. It is when the outgoing force is unable to remove from the system “unassimilable physical, emotional or mental material” that disruption in the circuitry occurs and the system becomes dysfunctional.

The above image is the Kármán vortex street caused by wind flowing around the Juan Fernández Islands off the Chilean coast. It is a delight for the eyes, portraying the turbulent side of nature.

Vortex shedding

In fluid dynamics, vortex shedding is an oscillating flow that takes place when a fluid such as air or water flows past a bluff (as opposed to streamlined) body at certain velocities, depending on the size and shape of the body.

In this flow, vortices are created at the back of the body and detach periodically from either side of the body. These linear chain of spiral eddies are called von Karman vortice


The fluid flow past the object creates alternating low-pressure vortices on the downstream side of the object. Ergo, the object will tend to move toward the low-pressure zone.

Airplanes and  Lift

The main thing to know is that a difference in pressure across the wing–low pressure over the top and higher pressure below–creates the net upward force we call lift.

Upon reaching a certain velocity, the aircraft’s lift is more than its weight and as a result, the aircraft takes off .

Vortex Induced Vibrations

When the vortices are not formed symmetrically around the body (with respect to its midplane), different lift forces develop on each side of the body, thus leading to motion transverse to the flow.

These are know in fluid dynamics as vortex-induced vibrations (VIV). They are important factor to be taken into consideration because constant vibration of any object leads to fatigue and eventually failure.


Chimneys and their spiraled heads

Tall chimneys constructed of thin-walled steel tube can be sufficiently flexible that, in air flow with a speed in the critical range, vortex shedding can drive the chimney into violent oscillations that can damage or destroy the chimney.

They are  protected from this phenomenon by installing a series of fences (sometimes called strakes or spoilers) at the top and running down the exterior of the chimney for approximately 20% of its length. The fences are usually located in a helical pattern.

The fences prevent strong vortex shedding with low separation frequencies.

Final Thoughts

In this post i wanted to introduce you this amazing phenomenon that occurs in nature known as vortex shedding. We will look at the technical side of this phenomenon in another post. 

Have a great day!
