In reading this book, I recalled that story that Eskimos have more than 40 words for snow. It is actually an urban myth. Many linguists believe it came from the many multiple native languages which all had different words for snow AND that any culture will have more words for something it spends much time, energy and thought on. When reading Frequency, the Power of Personal Vibration by Penney Peirce, I wondered how many ways there might be to describe similar principles of energy work. Penney has found a charming way to discuss discovering what means the most to you, how to separate your reactions and energies from others and take it into the world with curiosity and kindness.
Her premise is that everyone has a home frequency; a personal vibration which represents you at your clearest self. (In case you were wondering as I did, Penney did get the title idea from that movie Frequency in which a man finds a funky frequency on his radio and is able to speak with his dead father over times dimensions). Her clear language artfully describes some basic premises of how one’s attitude and actions create ripples in our worlds. She has some good step by step guidelines on getting to and recognizing good solutions to problems as well. Each chapter is also full of great quotes to inspire; even by themselves they would make this book worthwhile.
