The Principle of Vibration

The third Hermetic Principle.

  • “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”
  • Everything is in motion
  • This principle explains that the differences between different manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration. (Kybalion 18)
  • An understanding of this Principle, with the appropriate formulas, enables Hermetic students to control their own mental vibrations as well as those of others.
  • “He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the sceptre of power.” (Kybalion 18)
  • “Upward and onward along this Scale of Life, everything is moving. All are on the Path, whose end is THE ALL. All progress is a Returning Home. All is Upward and Onward, in spite of all seemingly contradictory appearances.” (Kybalion 63)
  • “Even THE ALL, in itself, manifests a constant vibration of such an infinite degree of intensity and rapid motion that it may be practically considered as at rest.” (Kybalion 87)
  • All forms of Matter manifest Vibration
  • “Science teaches that Light, Heat, Magnetism and Electricity are but forms of vibratory motion connected in some way with, and probably emanating from the Ether.” (Kybalion 88)
  • “All manifestation of thought, emotion, reason, will or desire, or any mental state or condition, are accompanied by vibrations, a portion of which are thrown off and which tend to affect the minds of other persons by “induction.” This is the principle which produces the phenomena of “telepathy”; mental influence.” (Kybalion 91)
  • “Every thought, emotion or mental state has its corresponding rate and mode of vibration….. These mental states may be reproduced, just as a musical tone may be reproduced… just as color may be reproduced.” (Kybalion 92)
  • “The Principle of Vibration underlies the wonderful phenomena of the power manifested by the Masters and Adepts, who are able to apparently set aside the Laws of Nature, but who, in reality, are simply using one law against another; one principle against others; and who accomplish their results by changing the vibrations of material objects, or forms of energy, and thus perform what are commonly called “miracles.”” (Kybalion 92)
  • “To change your mood or mental state—change your vibration.” (The Kybalion)
  • “Every living thing consists of a sound, a color, and a form; for these are the trinity of manifestations which bear witness to the life within. All colors have a sound and a form; all forms have a color and a sound; and all sounds have a color and a form. The rates of vibration of many sounds our ears are unable to detect. There are numerous colors which we do not see and forms which elude the perceptions of the senses, but nevertheless they exist.” (Hall, Sacred Magic, 17)
  • “Man is a human radio, and like this instrument can be attuned satisfactorily to but one rate of vibration at a time. . . The more selective the instrument, the higher grade is its mechanism. . . . The scatter-brain, like the cheap instrument, is not sharply selective, and therefore brings in several stations at once. So the finer the receiving equipment, the more perfectly it will receive the spiritual messages of Nature.” (Hall, Sacred Magic 17-18)
  • “Everything is created by a word. This word is a rate of vibration, and is said to be the true name of the thing or body which it builds around itself. We may say that bodies are spiritual thoughts put into words.” (Hall, Sacred Magic 19)
