Dramatic Visual of Why Frequency Matters

The topics of “resonance,” “harmony” and “frequency” have become especially common in phone sessions as people continue to get more sensitive to the energies in and around themselves. Many people feel unexpected and tremendous relief when they remove themselves from disharmonious influences that they considered either minor irritations or “must have’s” in their lives. In fact, they feel so much better that the sense of relief practically shouts itself from the rooftops.

They then feel a combination of guilt and elation that they “feel so much better with this person or situation out of my life. How is this possible? I can’t deny it, but they’re my ____[parent/sibling/spouse/job/best friend/random person I run into]. I feel bad for not hanging out with them, but I just can’t do it anymore. My body won’t let me. Should I feel bad? What’s going on?!”

What’s going on is what I call “frequency sorting,” and although it can seem surprising, it’s not a bad thing. It doesn’t mean one person is “evil” and the other “good.” It doesn’t mean one person is “right” and the other “totally wrong.” It just means, these people or situations are “not a match” or “not a match right now.”

But why is it such a big deal, and why does the body care so much?

The easiest illustration I can show is this video of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse, which shows how disharmonious frequency affects physical structures. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the wind that causes the bridge to sway; however, the continued frequency of that wind eventually causes the bridge to buckle and fall apart. The wind and the bridge are not compatible, and if the bridge had been able to remove itself from the wind or to create a buffer from that wind, then it would not now be “one of the world’s largest manmade reefs.”

Can this kind of resonance that destroys serve a larger purpose? Sure. In this case, “Gallopin’ Gertie” inspired the complete redesign of bridges across the world, because no one wanted a repeat of this level of destruction. But if your body is the bridge, or you’re on the bridge, and someone’s or something’s presence starts rocking your heart rate, hormones and any semblance of inner peace, self preservation strongly advises getting out of the way of that frequency. In the beginning, not much damage occurs, but with sustained exposure, look what happens:

Be gentle with yourself. Perhaps the frequencies between you two just happen to create highly destructive resonance waves right now. It might not mean forever. Frequencies do change, but if you notice, the wind sustains no damage. Only the bridge. The bridge is rockin’ and rollin’ and going all topsy turvy. If the wind said to the bridge, “I don’t know what you’re talking about! I’m just blowing. It’s your problem.” Well, yeah, in this case, it is the bridge’s problem, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a very real problem. The bridge collapsed with sustained exposure.

Sometimes, you’re not the bridge, but you find yourself in a highly non-resonant situation of someone else’s drama. You’re like the person in the car on the swaying bridge. A bridge can’t easily walk away from a situation, but the person in the car on the topsy turvy Tacoma Narrows Bridge needed to make some fast, courageous decisions if they didn’t want to go down in Puget Sound.

In the bigger picture, good things can come of these situations, even if the bridge  collapses, but do you want to risk collapse? The design of future bridges created safer suspension and buffers to prevent this sort of thing from happening as easily again. Perhaps your body’s just warning you to remove yourself from destructive resonance until you can change your own frequency so that you become less vulnerable to that specific frequency of wind. Perhaps, your body’s increasing malfunctions order you to walk away from abuse or negativity or falsehood. Maybe you’ve developed a hypersensitivity to narcissists or sociopaths, in which case, you can save yourself a lot of trouble by proceeding with high alert caution  or — more often than not — getting out of the car and carefully running for your life.

A lot of people have recently developed extreme sensitivity to denial. Generally, coming out of denial leads to awakening, but it also destroys illusions and weak foundations in the process. Depending on how fully invested people feel in the denial, premature awakening could trigger a nervous breakdown or equivalent “collapse.” Once someone has awakened from denial, though, continuing to hang around people who live and breathe the lie, who embody the lie takes a huge toll on the body. Mismatched, disharmonious frequency sometimes feels horrible to both parties, but sometimes only one person needs to get away. No judgment here, really: think of the wind and the bridge. The wind didn’t feel a problem, but the bridge sure did! Again, the need to remove yourself from disharmonious frequency does not necessarily indicate who is right or wrong. It just “is” a need to remove yourself in order to avoid collapse.

Yes, sometimes positive new things come from a needed collapse, but often, we can embrace equally or even more positive new things by sidestepping collapse. You decide. In these chaotic times, learning to trust your body can help determine who or what to include in your life experience. What frequencies do you wish to engage? What frequencies feel supportive and strong? Which ones dis-integrate you? If you’re on what I call an Integration Lifetime, then you have a soul imperative to integrate. Choose wisely.

All the layers of your being matter. If you need to “see it to believe it,” then you might get to witness your own, personal “Gallopin’ Gertie.” If you can trust your feelings and act on those, then life can bring what David calls “Ease ‘n’ Please” instead of “Trauma Drama.” Bridges can get you from point a to point b, but the journey becomes far more interesting and difficult if the bridge collapses. You might still reach point b — perhaps your soul will insist upon it! But if you’re too afraid to address issues of frequency, resonance and harmony now, then it becomes ironic to call this “the safe choice.”

Listen to your body; cultivate your soul. If you need a stabilizing force in the wind so that you have the presence of mind and heart to decide, just ask. Just like the person in the car caught on the buckling bridge, you are not as alone as you feel right now. Help can arrive, but if you find yourself on a swaying, buckling bridge when help arrives, you might want to get out of the car!

Wishing you discernment, courage and strength in these chaotic times… find the right frequency for you, and all this chaos begins to feel empowering and good! But frequency is key.

    Yea, that’s exactly how it feels when the frequencies are rubbing up against each other in all the wrong ways.
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading your excellent analogy, Laura — thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I grew up believing that I needed to stay connected to people no matter what happens and I did have that break down and it has caused a lot of pain and suffering. I just didn’t know how to change the beliefs because they were so deeply ingrained. I now know that if something doesn’t feel right to me or the other that it is probably not a good match. That it is ok to let go and move on. I’m getting better at that. I feel like a lot of people want me and others to hold on and not let go and that produces guilt and doubt because some people seem to think it’s not the kind or loving thing to do. I have had these entity attachments that manipulate my mind and soul and are very narcissistic and sociopathic. They want to take and not give back. Still working on how to release them but I am sure the more I change and grow the less strong the bonds will feel like they have over me. This was great! Thanks for the post!! 😀❤️

    Love love love this post by Laura Bruno. I have recently felt that wind blowing with my car on the bridge. As Laura shared I simply can’t abide it these days. My whole body and energy / frequency pay a price. It’s too high. Mjumo out of that car before the bridge collapses! Love this visual. Spot on!

    Galloping Gertie… the old bridge over the Tacoma Narrows, a windy pass on the lower Puget Sound collapsed during high winds one day… Frequency is key now so your body doesn’t relive this episode…

  7. Wonderful, wonderful post and resonates perfectly with so much of what I am experiencing in my own life right now. I work every day in the biggest organisation in my area – 5000+ people – the majority of whom live ‘in denial’. There are many, many benefits to working there and I work with some lovely people but it has started to become increasingly more difficult to be there, and impossible without strengthening my boundaries and becoming much stronger and clear in my self. As Reiki Dawn also says, the toll that this takes on our bodies and energies can be huge – no wonder I’ve been putting on weight over the months that I have felt the increased need for protection while in that space. It’s all learning though, and I am feeling much more balanced since I had my reading with you last week, which was spot-on as always, and the information you have shared with us today just supports what I have been feeling are my next steps. Many thanks as always xx

    I have been feeling that the whole world is like this, lately…half of us the wind, the other half the bridge. I just keep telling myself that if I manage it on the micro scale (meaning for myself and my own life), the macro will follow.

  10. Thanks Demitra. So glad you found this an accurate description. I have shared this analogy with so many clients the past two weeks that I realized I really needed to write it as a post! Clearly, it’s “up” right now.


  11. Thank you for sharing, livelovefree. I’m sure your comments will help others dealing with the same dynamic. Sometimes it’s much easier to recognize patterns in someone else’s story than our own.

  17. Linette, I think that’s as good an approach as any! We have the most influence in our own sphere, however far that extends. If we can’t shift that, then we likely won’t be very effective in areas where we have even less influence. As within, so without! ❤

    Great post for these surreal times we’re in! The gentleman who escaped from his car crawling on all fours most of the way, was Tacoma Times reporter Leonard Coatsworth, his words seems fitting to include here “I saw the Narrows bridge die today, and only by the grace of God, escaped dying with it. . . .”

  19. Thanks, Mitch! You are such a great researcher, and yes, that seems fitting, indeed. 🙂


  20. Structures like this bridge collapse due to harmonic resonance…when the frequency of the wind (or sound, etc) match the natural frequency of the structure, the structure will “self-excite” due to the amplification of oscillations. If this analogy holds true for our bodies, it would mean that it is unhealthy to spend too much around people who match our natural frequencies too closely.

    Covert technology, following this principle, can generate frequencies that cause a lot of unease or disease in the body.

    From this article:
    “After the Tacoma Narrows disaster, bridge builders took care to incorporate aerodynamics into their designs and build structures with complex frequencies.”


  22. You just articulated (or the article did, but thanks for pointing it out), the importance of more complex frequencies. That is what I have noticed — the monoculture, brainwashed, denial, one certain way of viewing the world has become toxic to people who have woken up to a multidimensional reality of simultaneous levels of awareness and capacity for paradox. Perhaps that is the shift required in these upgrading times. Just as a monoculture crop can easily fall to disease, so too, perhaps the monoculture erasing of individuality is what can destroy people at this time. More to share on that, but thank you for raising this important point. If you look through old posts like Uniquely You, Divinely One, you’ll find other times I have written on this phenomenon. I had not connected it to the bridge analogy but it does make sense!
