NEW YORK, September 26, 2012 - One of the most gifted intellectuals of our time once said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” This man practically invented the modern era of technology and was perhaps the greatest inventor-engineer-scientist ever: Nikola Tesla. Was he qualified to speak such words, and why did he say them?
Tesla specialized in Energy. Pure energy. He was a master in harnessing the power of the atom’s electrons, as he often lit light bulbs wirelessly and regularly wielded streams of electrons through the air as lightning for amazed spectators.
In one of his thousands of experiments, he created an “earthquake machine”. This small machine consisted of a pneumatically powered piston that would strike an object repetitively and at intervals or frequency which he could adjust. In 1898, he tested the device on his own laboratory building. As he increased the speed of the device, it eventually matched the frequency of the building itself, making the building shudder violently. The story goes that the police arrived just as Tesla “shut down” the experiment rapidly with a sledgehammer, ending the pending doom to his laboratory and surrounding buildings.
Tesla understood that if you make things vibrate to a certain point: interesting things start to happen. Like glass breaking under the stress of a trained singer’s voice, Tesla found the sweet spot of his own laboratory.
But did Tesla know something else about energy? Something far more important? He did.
Tesla understood that everything in the universe is made up of vibrating atoms and electrons. He knew that humans are made up of Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and other atoms. Therefore, in reality, we are just vibrating atoms; flesh and blood was an illusion of the mind.
In China, this energy is referred to as Qi. In Hindu, it’s called Prana. Hawaiians call it Mana, and in Tibet it is referred to as Lüng. Star Wars fans know it as “The Force”. These terms are all describing one thing: universal energy. It’s the common, connected atomic vibrational energy that binds all matter in the universe and by the laws of known physics, it has to exist.
Switching gears a bit, religions often refer to this universal energy that drives our bodies as our soul. It’s our inner person, the person who decides how to treat others. It’s the person inside us that determines your actions and your beliefs. Every living creature has this life energy, derived from chemical reactions made up of vibrating atoms.
Is it possible that this physical energy described by Tesla and other cultures can be linked to the soul? Furthermore, could this energy be the driving force behind prayer? Is it possible that Tesla and others before him knew the science behind prayer all along? If it is possible or even true, it’s nothing to denounce. Knowing the science of prayer does not remove its divinity, and no one can deny that the power of prayer is divine. We know how children are conceived, but that knowledge does not remove the miracle that still exists therein. Miracles of life exist all around us even though we now have scientific knowledge of them. The instructions Jesus of Nazareth gave us regarding prayer are simple. He said: “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, `Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. “And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive (Matthew 21:21-22).” We know that with heavy equipment, an engineer can instruct his crew to level a mountain for its resources. But before the roar of the first engine is heard, the engineer had to think about casting the mountain aside to get at its bounty. Is this lesson tied only to the teachings of Christianity? No. What about these sayings?
“Where there is a will there is a way.” - Chinese proverb
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
A professional athlete never once truly believed they couldn’t become a professional athlete. The professional athlete spent the majority of his or her training completely convinced they could be a professional athlete. Believing something to be true is crucial for it to come to pass. Those athletes plagued with doubt and self-confidence problems rarely go professional. In the latter case, just thinking the limiting thoughts returned what they believed. “I can’t be a professional athlete because I’ll never be fast enough.”
“Right you are,” says Mr. Ford.
People view visualization as a training tool to get what they desire. In actuality, could visualization be a form of communication with the earth or universal energy? In our minds eye, we can see ourselves succeeding in our actions plans or goals. Since this ‘image’ is energy in its fundamental form, it is being broadcast to the ether due to our interconnections to the environment around us. These people also believe the images, because after all, “seeing is believing”. However, the person must take actions or steps to make the images become reality. For example, a basketball player must physically shoot a free-throw after he has visualized himself making the shot. Prayers, or the visualizations, do not produce items out of thin air. God helps those who help themselves we are told. Belief that it is possible is the key to any desired action.
When praying, you are concentrating and focusing your thoughts, but fundamentally it is energy. You’re talking to God no doubt, but again, is it possible that your soul or energy could also be resonating with the earth’s frequency? Could Jesus have known about resonance and vibrational energy and gave us the keys to this gift? In the Old Testament it was taught to use running water in the acts of cleanliness. Those instructions clearly were engrained with the divine knowledge of bacterial organisms and other microbes that would make you sick or kill you if dirty “kitchen” items were not properly cleaned before being utilized again.
But there is a negative or dark side to this theory. If we are in fact an antenna, we must learn to carefully discern what we broadcast repeatedly. Intense thoughts about pessimism, fear, doubt, anger and rage are broadcast and are received by the ether nonetheless. Thinking about and dwelling upon lacking desires has consequences. “I don’t have the money to get my car fixed” is a broadcast to the universe that you believe that you have no money nor want any money to get your car fixed. However, thinking that you will get the money to get your car fixed, or even better, believing that you have the money or will get the money will allow the money to show up from some unexpected source.
Dan Zavadil, an extremely talented musician friend of mine, told me an interesting story one day while hanging out. He had auditioned as a bass player for a well known rock band. On the flight out, he repeatedly told himself that all he wanted out of the audition was to know that he was good enough to be in a mainstream rock band. The band played several songs with him in his audition, instead of the obligatory single song or half song. Dan didn’t get the job in the end, but he did get exactly what he asked for: the knowledge that he was good enough to play with a top band. When we believe, we get what we broadcast or pray for, and in this case, it’s clear that he was really more interested in validation than going back on the road.
If all this is possible, it’s truly a good that the majority of the things we think about are not what we really, really want.
