Review of Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration, by Gillian C. Grannam, PhD, of www.shiftfrequency.com
I agree with John L. Petersen (of the Arlington Institute). Penney Peirce’s Frequency is "an unprecedented gift to the person who is ready to evolve."
Peirce says she wrote Frequency “to help you melt through the last barriers to awakening fully, and actually feeling the experience of your expanded self that will be your normal state in the Intuition Age.”[i] Frequency is about the one authentic resonant field within each, the One that exists in the heart. She presents this One through layered, structured prose.
Peirce writes that many “. . . are close to understanding that we’ve never left home—the ‘heaven’ experience.” Rather “we’ve been having the most amazing captivating dream, called ‘life on earth.’”[ii]
The Evolutionary Process Is Real
The book’s framework is evolutionary. It describes the process whereby life propels itself toward ever fuller Self expression. Peirce writes, “You are being affected by an evolutionary process that moves through specific stages which is causing the energetic frequency of your body, emotions, and mind to accelerate.” In fact, “the rising frequency of your energy parallels your level of awareness.” You are “gradually becoming more aware, sensitive, visionary, empathic, and loving.”[iii]
The intuitive faculty must be engaged. “Intuition is direct, unbiased perception that comes from unifying the fragmented parts of your awareness—body, emotions, mind, and spirit—and it arises when you’re focused in the present moment, alert but not tense . . . feeling simple and open.”[iv]
Emotion ignites resonant frequency. “You can know many things by ‘feeling into’ life." This is a simple process of relaxing “into a soft, less defined personal identity” and expanding to include “more space and time” while “raising the frequency of . . . body, emotions, and mind to a higher level.”[v]
It’s a Toolkit Within a Book
This isn’t “just” a book. It’s a creation tool, one that works best if you allow yourself to truly hear, feel, and imagine (image-in) the perceptual codes revealed throughout. Frequency describes a layered process that facilitates and accelerates awareness of the authentic Self. You discover how to calibrate and adjust to soul frequency. Calibration results in perceptual movement to a level of heightened awareness of soul presence. It’s finding who you really, truly are. Getting you there is the central focus of this work.
Create a New Reality through Expanded Dimensional Awareness
“You might think of the fourth dimension as the realm of the soul, of spirit—an experience rather than a place, in which everything exists simultaneously in a unified field of energy and awareness, where everything contains everything else, all is known, and ‘love’ is the primary substance out of which everything is made.”[vi]
“In the new reality soul will be the supreme force, consciousness of the interpenetration of the visible and invisible realms will be the most valuable thing, and anything will be possible.” [4-5] This is because we start to see life as “energy and awareness.”
Peirce states you “are evolving through nine phases of growth that are designed to effectively raise your vibration.” The entire process is considerably eased if you “work consciously with honing your sensitivity and choosing your soul’s vibration (home frequency).” If you do that you’ll seem to “float through the transformation process like a leaf carried downstream by a river that knows where it’s going.”
The 9 Stages in the Transformation Process
1. Spirit merges with body, emotions, and mind
2. The frequency of life increases in every way, everywhere
3. The personal-collective subconscious mind empties
4. You retrench, refortify, resist, and re-suppress (until)
5. Old structures break down and dissolve
6. You stop, let go, and relax into your truest self
7. You re-emerge into the world like the phoenix
8. Relationship, family and group experience are revolutionized
9. Enlightenment is grounded in every bit of matter
Chapters include “Try This!” segments that describe explorations in frequency embodiment. For example, you’re invited to “Try this! Flow compassion and love through yourself.”
In this instance you perceive yourself as a “giver and receiver of love” in various circumstances over a few days. Peirce suggests you “look around and be a neutral witness to the basic love energy that shapes you and the world around you. See and feel it everywhere. Be accepting, forgiving and unconditional in your loving kindness for a few minutes. Breathe love in through all your cells and let it pass through you, touching every part and lighting you up, then send the love on its way, giving it generously to others. In difficult circumstances, ask “where is the love right now?"[vii]
It’s All Choice (Driven by Willpower)
“Willpower is not about resisting, forcing, or controlling—it’s about choosing. And there are just two basic choices: to feel expansive, loving, and connected to the high vibrations of your soul—to literally be your soul—or to feel contracted, afraid, and immersed in the low vibrations of suffering—to not be your soul.”[viii]
Fortunately, you can choose your “home frequency” and have the will power to stay there once you find it. “When and how to drop into your home frequency. . . It’s one of the best kept secrets in life that when you think you’re falling into the void, you’re really returning to yourself—that what you think is going to be empty is actually full.”[ix]
This book is a keeper. I recommend you check it out on Penney’s site. She lists multiple sites at which it's available for purchase. Also, read some truly spirit-inspired excerpts which are posted there.
