We have suspected for centuries that our thoughts and emotions can actually produce energy that can affect reality and matters. Quite recently, a study from Standford University finally confirmed this idea.
According to the study, our thoughts aren’t passive observers perceiving reality as it is but are actually active. With strong enough motivations and consistency, our thoughts and emotional energy can actually shape reality, bringing reality closer to what we are thinking (and wanting).
Here, we will learn how the vibrational frequency of thoughts and emotions can help shape reality, how you can leverage different emotional frequencies and other things you may need to know about the subject.
Without further ado, let us begin.
Thoughts and Emotions
First, what is a “thought”, and what is an “emotion”?
While we can be technical and use all sorts of difficult words to explain them, the simplest way to illustrate them is this way:
Emotion is our mind’s natural instinctive state as a result of external stimuli. These stimuli can be circumstances, relationships with others, mood, and other forms. A feeling is our experience of the emotion and its context, while thoughts are ideas and opinions we use to describe the emotion and feeling.
Thoughts are mental cognition that comes in various different forms like ideas, opinions, and beliefs, which are produced based on how we perceive our surroundings. Different people might have different thoughts when faced with the same stimuli based on their point of view. In turn, these perspectives are influenced by life experience, environment, knowledge, and other factors.
For example, let’s say we are watching a film with a sad scene. This is a stimulus, and it causes us to feel sad (emotion). Based on our knowledge and past experience, our thoughts about this particular scene may differ, and so we may process the sadness differently.
For some, the thought can be as simple as “I really pity this guy, why is this so sad..”. However, those who have experienced similar situations to what the scene has described may process the scene differently, and this scene may act as an emotional trigger.
We can see how the same stimulus may produce similar emotions, but different thoughts. On the other hand, what we think about and how we process our thoughts may also affect how we feel, turning it into a causal cycle.
Thought and Emotional Energy
Now that we’ve understood the basics of how our thoughts and emotions work and how they affect each other, now we’ll learn about the energy produced by these thoughts and emotions.
All humans can manifest energy not only through their bodies (i.e. when we punch something) but also through their minds: thought and emotional energy.
In itself our emotional energy is neutral, but it is our thoughts (how we interpret this emotional energy) that will make it positive or negative. For example, emotions we label as anger will be perceived as negative energy.
We can view our emotional energy as the carrier waves for our feelings, and like any other energy, our emotional energy is a valuable resource that should be used and released rather than suppressed and/or ignored.
Emotional energy will influence our thought processes, memories, experiences, and decision-making. A study by Unilever has suggested that our emotional energy is linked to the primitive (instinctive) part of the brain, that has existed before our rational, thinking part of the brain. Meaning, if we can better manage our emotional energy, we’ll have an easier time regulating our feelings about ourselves, our lives, our work, and other things.
How we understand, manage, and effectively use emotional energy is vital to manage our happiness levels.
Vibrations of Your Thoughts and Emotional Energy
Our thoughts and emotions produce vibrations within our bodies.
Human bodies operate with rhythms or patterns: heartbeats, circadian rhythms, breathing rates, are examples of measurable rhythms in our bodies.
However, at a much smaller scale, vibrations also happen at a cellular level. Each one of our cells vibrates with unique frequencies. With advancements in technologies, now we can observe molecular vibrations within our cells using atomic force microscopes, that are able to detect vibrations on very small molecules.
A study has suggested that these vibrations generate electromagnetic energy, which can affect our cells and on a bigger level, how our body functions.
These vibration frequencies can be faster or slower depending on the stimuli. Higher temperatures, for example, can speed up molecular vibration.
Apparently, many experts also believe that the vibration frequencies are also affected by our thoughts and emotions. On the other hand, manipulating these vibrations can also affect how we think, how we feel, and even our physical health.

How Do You Measure Emotional Frequency?
Above, we’ve discussed that our thoughts and emotions can affect how our bodies vibrate on a cellular level.
However, very few of us actually have access to microscopes and measurement instruments capable of measuring these vibrations. So, how can we practically measure emotional frequency?
Dr. David Hawkins developed a work called The Map of Consciousness which is detailed through his book Power versus Force (Aff.link). Dr. Hawkins divided human consciousness into 17 stages based on vibrational frequencies, which are measured via kinesiology (muscle monitoring or muscle testing).
Based on Dr. Hawkins’s research, our muscle’s response to stimulus differs in frequency depending on whether the stimulus is perceived as positive or negative, as well as truth or lies.
Muscle testing, also known as applied kinesiology or AK, is an alternative medicine practice used to test extremities. The basic idea is that any external stimuli we are experiencing would be accompanied by reactions in our muscles, typically weakness in the related muscle.
Basically, Dr. Hawkins’ developed a muscle testing technique that goes like this:
- The observer (tester) presses two fingers on the subject extended wrist
- The subject of the test are told to think about two extremities, for example, someone you love the most, and then someone you hate the most
- The subject (assuming he/she is not a sociopath and is in a neutral mood) will lose muscle strength when he/she thinks about the negatively associated person (someone he/she hates).
Dr. Hawkins performed this muscle test to various conditions to measure different extremities and as a result, he developed a Map of Consciousness consisting of 17 different levels or scales, which we will discuss below.
The Map of Consciousness: Emotional Frequency Chart
Dr. Hawkins divides the level of consciousness into 17 different frequencies.
Frequencies, as we know, are measured in the unit Hertz, 1 Hertz (Hz) means there is 1 vibration in 1 second, and 60 Hz means there are 60 vibrations in 1 second. In Hawkins’s Map, the lower the vibrational frequency, the more destructive or negative the energy is.
As we can see from the chart above, Hawkins divided emotional energy levels into two groups: destructive, between 1-20Hz (shame) and 175 Hz (pride); and creative, between 200 Hz (courage) and 700Hz-1000Hz (enlightenment).
As we know, our thoughts and emotions are not constant. So, at any given time, typically we bounce between 3 or 4 levels.
Below we’ll briefly describe each of these levels:
Shame (1-20 Hz)
Considered the lowest level of emotion and consciousness, someone that experiences shame has low self-esteem and is humiliated and paranoid. In short, he/she is feeling miserable. If people are left vibrating at this level for a prolonged amount of time, their moral values will be disrupted or even destroyed, turning them into moral extremists, terrorists, serial killers, and sexual offenders, among others.
Guilt (30 Hz)
Dominated by the feeling of blaming oneself and remorse. Can progress to shame and cause further destruction.
Apathy (50 Hz)
A feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. One is actually reaching out for help from others but doesn’t know how to express it.
Grief (75 Hz)
Dominated by regret, loss, and sadness, often manifesting as depression. Considered a higher level than apathy since we feel something with some energy despite being dominated by negative feelings.
Fear (100 Hz)
Centered around worry and anxiety. Various stimuli can cause fear, like fearing rejection, failure, uncertainty, challenges, and so on.
Desire (125 Hz)
Centered around greed and sometimes, addiction. At this energy level, we pursue our ambitions sometimes unhealthily, leading to the feeling of never being satisfied.
Anger (150 Hz)
Hate is the main emotion at this energy level, which often produces aggression. Anger can also expresses itself as frustration and resentment.
Pride (175 Hz)
The highest level of destructive energy, and while it’s no longer as destructive as the frequencies below it, pride is dependent on external possessions and conditions, so it is fragile and you can easily move down to lower frequencies when these external conditions are no longer there. Pride often produces arrogance and denial and can cause one to be too demanding to oneself and others.
Courage (200 Hz)
The first of the positive (creative) energy levels. People with this frequency level will view life as exciting and full of opportunities. In short, this is the level when one starts to feel empowerment, marking the active pursuit of growth, and the person is now able to act to deal with various situations and challenges accordingly.
Neutrality (250 Hz)
Neutral, as in the sense of you have the sense of trust and stability. People with this level of emotional energy are able to see things objectively in a non-judgmental way. This energy level marks the beginning of inner confidence, people here can stay happy in an objective way without being attached to possessions and situations. When a situation is not as expected, people in this energy frequency can simply settle for something else.
Willingness (310 Hz)
In this willingness energy level, one is open to trying new things, which often leads to rapid acceleration of growth in various areas. Many people with this energy level perform very well in their careers since they can channel their energy in the best way possible and overcome their inner resistance in achieving growth.
Acceptance (350 Hz)
At this level, people will start accepting that they are the ones responsible and in control of their own destinies, opening up possibilities for major transformations. At this level, we are now aware of how to discern limiting beliefs and how to position ourselves above limiting situations and conditions.
Reason (400 Hz)
This level is marked with rationality and intelligence, and the individual is able to process information objectively to reach conclusions. The individual leads a meaningful life, but it’s possible to fall into the trap of over rationalizing from time to time.
Love (500 Hz)
Unconditional love: without motive, truly from the heart, and it is only after this stage that one is capable of finding true happiness. According to Dr. Hawkins, only 0.4% of the population ever reaches this level.
Joy (540 Hz)
The individual has achieved an inner joy that can radiate to produce notable effects on others. At this level, the individual has merged with the divine consciousness, and near-death experiences can temporarily bring people to this stage.
Peace (600 Hz)
Only attained by 1 out of 10 million people, according to Dr. Hawkins, the individual has achieved transcendence, and there’s no longer any distinction between the observer and the subject.
Enlightenment (700-1000 Hz)
The pinnacle of consciousness, only the greatest people in history (Buddha, Jesus, Krishna) have achieved this emotional energy level.
How To Measure Your Own Vibration Frequency
Although it’s difficult to accurately measure where you’re at on the Map of Consciousness, one effective approach is to observe how you think and what’s your emotion when you are under pressure.
If you tend to be afraid when under pressure, then most likely you are currently around the fear (100 Hz) stage. If, on the other hand, you tend to become aggressive, then most likely you are around the anger (150 Hz). We tend to show our true selves under pressure. Objectively observe yourself, and by learning about your current emotional energy level, you can train yourself to transcend your current level.
Also, remember that most of us tend to bounce between 3 or 4 levels up and down, as our emotional states are rarely stagnant.
