What exactly constitutes our “tribe?” As I have written about in my books and newsletters, it isn’t the differences that separate us that matter, it’s our similarities that unite us. Tribes typically gather for several reasons. First is safety. There is strength in numbers. Next is economy. The more members we bring into the tribe, the more skills and benefits we can all share. Skills like farming, hunting, carpentry, medicine, and more will all be of value to the tribe. Then there are the shared beliefs. We seek those who give us validity and permission to do or be what we believe is “best,” safest, and most comfortable.
More than anything, core beliefs unite us. We usually form our tribes around our families and partners, our circle of friends, and those who share our beliefs or values. These tribes become our congregations, communities, cities, and nations. We create our power structures, governments, around those beliefs. The governments devise laws to provide order to the function of the tribe. When rifts or differences arise in the interpretations of those beliefs, the tribe begins to splinter and new tribes, or factions such as sects, political parties, or social classes, emerge. We divide ourselves through political and religious practices, rituals, and rites, that evolve from the very core beliefs that united us in the first place.
What is at the heart of the tribal mentality, however, isn’t the outwardly expressed beliefs, but what Abraham Hicks refers to as our “vibrational alignment with source.” Finding that vibration can be a challenge. In the United States our electrical system vibrates at approximately 60 cycles per second, or Hertz. In Europe it’s 50 cycles. A 60-cycle electrical grid emits a vibration or hum in approximately the key of B (61.74 Hz), while 50 cycles is closer to G# (51.19 Hz). Ask someone from Europe to hum a random note and they will almost always be right around G#. Likewise, Americans usually hum a B. We have achieved a synchronicity in our vibrations, or a vibrational alignment within our tribes.
What happens when we change our vibrational frequency? Most often we feel uneasy or unwelcome. We either look for another tribe with which we can find synchronicity, or we settle back into the old hum. As we grow in our understanding and our awareness of our understanding, we do, indeed, raise our vibrations. It is time now to seek out those with whom we share vibrational alignment and find the strength in numbers that gives amplitude (volume) to the frequency (tone) of our spiritual being. Let’s sing out our new tune. Others will hear us and join in, and, if we allow it, those whose vibrations are higher than ours can affect us to a higher pitch.
May the highest vibration win!
