Albert Einstein once said, “Everything is vibration.” On the most fundamental levels, humans and everything else in this world (and universe, for that matter) are made of pure energetic vibrations. In fact, about 99.999% of an atom is empty space and the other .0001 % (Electrons, protons, and neutrons) are probably also made up of empty space. That means that everything we see, this computer, the table, and your body are made up of mostly empty space and the only thing that makes them material is their energetic frequency.
This is basic high school science: gas molecules vibrate at a higher frequency than liquids, and liquids vibrate faster than solids. Everything in the universe is vibrating.
Think about colors: those are simply different frequencies of visible light moving at different speeds. From slowest to fastest, these are the speeds of color vibration: Red resonates at 405-480 THz, orange at 480- 510 THz, yellow at 510-530 THz, green at 530-580 THz, blue at 600-620THz, Indigo at 620- 680 THz, and Violet at 680-790 THz.
Everything has a unique vibratory code and energy, and we should be aware of this, especially when it comes to the food that we put into our bodies! For our health, it’s important that, whenever possible, we should be eating organic food—pesticides have a low frequency vibration as they are meant to kill sentient life. Pesticides, on a vibration and physical level, lead to more disease creating free radicals in the body and having numerous harmful effects.
The ancient Vedic scriptures—the Yoga Sutras—and Buddhist theologies speak to these quantum concepts. In fact, all of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy seeks to destroy the self and the ego, to move from a place of separation/duality or an “us and them” mentality to a place of oneness with the collective, essentially in a quantum sense, turning the self into nothing in order to be one with everything.
Many cutting edge theories—including string theory and the idea of a big bang—revolve around nothingness being the source of creation for everything. Not only did these theological practices have a grand understanding of the universe, but they also had an innate understanding of light, energy and frequency. As such, they discovered that the body has 7 seven main energy centers or chakras that correspond to our emotional and physical states of well-being. The term Chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel.
These Chakras—or spinning wheels of light—resonate with specific frequencies of light. There are seven colors of the rainbow and each one correlates with a chakra.
Red is the slowest frequency of visible light and thus relates to the root chakra, orange for the sacral, yellow for the solar plexus, green for the heart, blue for the throat, and indigo for the third eye, and purple for the crown chakra. As we move up the body, the vibratory frequency of the each color increases as well.
As far as foods are concerned, each chakra is related to the others, but you can focus on one specific chakra that needs attention, if you notice it is out of balance. However, it’s never a bad idea to make a big organic chakra balancing smoothie intended to harmonize the whole body. It’s an awesome way to start the day.
