Collective Frequencies of Teams & People
I’m writing this quick missive during the final game of the World Cup. (I know, I know, I’m listening while I write.) France and Argentina. It has me pondering, do fans elevate the vibrational frequency of a team? How much does the frequency of a team’s country influence them? Generally, where does our frequency influence start and end? I’m not going to act like I know all the answers, but I couldn’t stop myself from pondering this on paper before the game was even over.
The collective vibrational frequency of an individual is primarily composed of vibrations from their thoughts, emotions, organs, actions, beliefs, values and other components central to the individual.
Taking it out to a second layer, we have vibrations from the environment we live in, food, friends, job, media we regularly consume, and other regular elements in our lives that influence frequency.
The third layer of influence is composed of groceries we buy, financial investments, charities or political campaigns we support etc. If we were talking about SEO I’d call this layer our backlinks. Threads of semi-persistent connection to the world around us that disclose information about us and our values.
The fourth layer is events of transient influence. A happy hour, movie, or attending the World Cup. Every event has a collective frequency created by the vibration of all attendees that temporarily blends with our frequency. I may alter how I’ve defined these layers a year from now, but for now this is what we’re going with.
How many more layers can we expand outward before influence stops? I suspect it’s more than we think. Frequency impact likely declines as we move further from our center, but is still present to varying degrees. With that context, back to the World Cup. Applying this to soccer (or football) the core frequency of the team is the collective vibrations of the players and coaches. The secondary layer would be ownership, perhaps major sponsors, referees and fans.
How do indirect third layer elements in the team’s orbit affect them? What about how their country behaves on the world stage? If the company they buy uniforms from uses sweatshop labor? This can get heady to contemplate. Let’s examine the team, and fans, further.
What Influences the Frequency of a Team?
After experiencing 92% inflation this year did Argentina deserve a win and the country mattered? How much did the sponsorship of Qatar Airways affect the event based on their company’s frequency? Could any cheating spouses on the team have lowered their vibration, and thus, that of the team? Let’s explore.
Sponsors have the ability to hurt or raise vibration based on how they conduct themselves as an entity. They hold more vibrational sway than other team relationships like uniform providers, or home stadium ownership. Frequency influences increases with choice. A team can’t choose who owns their stadium, but they choose their sponsors- thus the sponsor carries more frequency influence. The sponsor is a larger investment than the uniform providers, so the frequency impact is equivalently larger.
A team of low vibration members will likely find it hard to hit the frequency bandwidth needed for strong intuition on the field. Some of you may remember from my article exploring life in high vibration that synchronicities typically increase as we raise vibration. Thus, a high vibration team should be able to line up plays better than a low vibration team. On this note, a team member engaging in low vibration activities dulls potential for the collective whole of a team to vibrate higher. Conversely, a team member engaging in a high vibration lifestyle is a catch, beyond just their skill level.
Considering that realities we create often match our vibration, I’d be fascinated to see if a team actively working on raising their frequencies together could have an epic season. Hit me up in the comments if you have ideas about any of this, especially as an athlete.
The frequency in the stadium, and live in Buenos Aires when Argentina won, was sky high. The expansive vibrations coming off Argentinian players after the win felt much stronger than the lower vibrations radiating from French players. So much exuberance, I swear most of us felt the win through the TV. We just don’t say, “Can you feel the vibrational frequency of that stadium?! Damn that’s inspiring.” Sports are a chance to experience frequencies (albeit in a weakened form) we’d never get to taste unless we’re a pro athlete.
What is the role of the fan? Fans in the stadium likely do the most to help their team hit a higher vibration. They act from the secondary layer of influence. People watching at home are next in line. Frequency isn’t necessary concerned with proximity, but someone watching in person can help increase the vibrational frequency more easily with their level of attention and presence. The more engaged in the present moment we are the stronger our vibration is. It’s easier to hit these levels of engagement in person, with wind on our face, the thunder of the stadium, and someone’s flag hitting us in the back. There’s an exchange occurring throughout a game between players and fans that’s palpable. In Seattle it’s called the 12th man when it comes to the NFL. Fans know on some level they contribute. I’m offering a name for it, and saying if it’s our frequency we gift a favorite team when we focus on them.
What about soccer fans watching around the world whose team was eliminated, and just pick a final team to cheer for? They’re probably contributing a tidbit to the team’s frequency, but nowhere near as much as a true fan. The intensity of our frequency influence matches how much of our heart is in the game, and with what intensity level we’re able to direct our attention. After the casual fan, I speculate frequency influence washes out. People watching for entertainment are contributing to the collective vibrational frequency of the World Cup, not a particular team.
Candidly, I’m still figuring out how much influence the country has.
I’d love to have you join (and contribute your frequency) to the next installment.
