Cymatics–Directly experiencing wuwu hippie-dippie ‘energy’
I remember the first time I saw a demonstration of Cymatics–the study of visible sound and vibration. I was speechless for the entire video, goosebumps and hair standing on end.
It wasn’t just the impact of visibly ‘seeing’ sound; it was the perfectly complex geometries that seemed to spring out of the background, giving immediate structure and complexity to the otherwise randomized sand particles.
In that first experience, I realized I was seeing how energy was already and always moving around us. I became incredibly excited because here was a Rosetta Stone for the conversations around cosmic energy.
Yogis talk about prana, Hippies and New-Agers talk about ‘vibration’, and scientists talk about the wave-particle fields. Here the phenomenon of Cymatics allows us to bridge what we experience (subjective) and what we measure (objective).

Some of these shapes seem familiar?
Hey there, Mr. Turtle
Though Cymatics has certainly been a collaborative effort stretching back to Galileo, Dr. Hans Jenny is generally regarded as the father of modern Cymatics, dedicating his later life to intensive and scientifically rigorous research from the late 50’s to early 70’s.
In fact, if you listen to Dr. Jenny in the extended videos below, he would have us believe that Cymatics stretches back considerably farther than Galileo, back to around the time of ‘In the beginning was the word…’
There is geometry in the humming of the strings. There is music in the spacing of the spheres. -Pythagoras
Speaking candidly, I strongly believe these are the archetypal templates or blueprints of the fundamental underlying energy patterns. I will confess that I have seen these patterns personally, in deep extended meditation retreats and in ayahuasca ceremonies.
These experiments in visible sound show organization, complexity and interconnection; they show intelligence. Not the intelligence that can tell you the capital of Idaho (Boise), but the intelligence that can show you how harmony is created between energetic forces–a more fundamental or primary intelligence.
Watch below for the full series Dr. Jenny put together on this amazing science.
So Hero, the task you have before you is to take this insight–which could remain as merely concept–and explore it in your own life. We are built with the capacity and sensitivity to feels these things; but just like language, capacity must be realized through your own consistent efforts.
You learned to walk, you learned to talk; you can also learn to directly sense these underlying patterns of energy. And when you do so, you will gain access to resources of energy you didn’t know you had. Like the science of periodicity and resonance, you will make use of these underlying patterns to magnify the efficacy of your thoughts, words and actions, accelerating your journey of wellness, prosperity and fulfillment.
In harmonic heroism,
