Vibrational medicine, also known as vibrational energy medicine, is a branch of healing that embraces two basic principles as natural laws that can be applied to everything that consists of matter and space: energy resonance and polarity. In terms of the first principle, proponents of vibrational medicine stress that all living things possess energy fields that pulse at a specific frequency. However, this energy, which resides in the physical as well as the auric body, is not intended to remain static. Instead, it will strive to resonate with similar energy frequencies and seek to flow between opposite polarities, such as from a state of movement to stillness and back again. By doing so, balance and order of the whole being is maintained.
In a living organism, resonance and polarity of energy is believed to regulate cellular arrangement and stability. However, without these influences, a lack of order may occur. In fact, practitioners of vibrational medicine contend that a blockage or other disturbance in energy flow promotes a state of imbalance, which may eventually lead to illness. In addition, the body can be affected on any level, impacting emotional and spiritual health as well as physical health.
Many of the underlying theories of this system of healing are based on the work of Dr. Richard Gerber, who is recognized as the voice of authority on the subject. In his book, Vibrational Medicine, Dr. Gerber asserts that the sole distinction between matter existing in the corporeal and ethereal plane is a difference in energy frequency. Further, he states that the two are able to occupy the same space at the same time because their frequencies do not obstruct or hinder each other. Gerber also points out that energy vibrations can be introduced or transferred from higher resonating bodies to another to promote harmony and balance.
Gerber illustrates the principle of energy transference by pointing to the conveyance of energy to atoms possessing a similar vibrational resonance that occurs during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In fact, this is how an MRI works to scan and pinpoint locations in the body that are in contrast, or diseased. This principle is the very essence of vibrational medicine as a diagnostic and healing tool. The paths to rearrange or transfer energy frequencies are represented by the five senses. The tools to raise or balance vibrational frequency are quite varied and include aromatherapy, sound therapy, sacred geometry (pyramid energy), color therapy, light therapy, and working with crystals and gemstones.
