In the Law of Attraction world, the concepts of high vibrations, raise your vibration, etc... is very common. BUT, what is the difference between the low vibration and why is it automatically assumed that high is good and low is bad.
High vibration is equated with a high frequency which means that something is happening a lot of times in a given period of time.
Low vibration is equated with a low frequency which means that something is happening a low number of times in a given period of time.
The same people who talk about raising vibrations are also the same who usually talk about achieving balance and moderation in life. So, why then do they not talk about getting into a middle vibration?
So a high vibration or high frequency could be smoking 5 packs of cigarettes a day or drinking 24 beers a day. That is a high vibration but I don't think this is what is meant by this concept. In this instance, high vibration is certainly an undesirable thing.
A low vibration or low frequency could be someone who runs through red lights once in a blue moon, which is much better than someone who runs through a red light once a week. So in this situation a low vibration or low frequency is good.
I understand that the intention is to equate high vibration with "good" things or things of the light, etc... and that low vibration is intended to equate with "bad" things, less spiritual things or darker things.
FROM: Definition of vibration - Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
Main Entry: vi·bra·tion
1 a : a periodic motion of the particles of an elastic body or medium in alternately opposite directions from the position of equilibrium when that equilibrium has been disturbed
(as when a stretched cord produces musical tones or molecules in the air transmit sounds to the ear) b :
the action of vibrating :
the state of being vibrated
or in vibratory
motion: as (1) : OSCILLATION
a quivering or trembling motion : QUIVER
an instance of vibration
vacillation in opinion or action : WAVERING
4 a :
a characteristic emanation, aura, or spirit that infuses or vitalizes someone or something and that can be instinctively sensed or experienced -- often used in plural b :
a distinctive usually emotional atmosphere capable of being sensed -- usually used in plural
Therefore, high would certainly indicate a high frequency of the periodic motion and low would indicate low frequency.
So in certain instances, a high vibration is desirable and in some a low vibration is desirable.
So what is the simplest way to the bullseye with this concept?
It seems to be that we want to MATCH or EQUAL the vibration of what we want to attract or happen in our life. To be in RESONANCE with, which is caused by SYMPATHETIC VIBRATION.
The whole concept is entrainment such as two tuning forks. Strike one and bring it to the other and the other vibrates as long as it is tuned to the same frequency.
So, we must BE what we want to BE instead of attracting it.
There is something to increasing the vibration of something physical but even in this instance, if someone's leg bone was at a very high vibration and the rest of the body wasn't, the leg would be limp as a noodle because the bone wouldn't be solid enough to maintain its structure to act as a bone.
In a spiritual example, raising the vibration of our entire being can brings us more in resonance with the light so this is a reasonable concept that can get us to BE more like light.
I think it is important to know the distinctions and differences between high and low vibrations and when it makes sense to have high vibrations and to know in what kind of context that having a high vibration makes sense.
