When Something Resonates, it Doesn't Mean it's "Good" ~ Inelia Benz ~ 17 April 2018

After publishing the article “It’s Time to Throw the Baby Out with the Bathwater”, a piece of information has been coming in from various locations and it is insisting to be aired.

In that article, I spoke a lot about “resonance” and “dissonance”. But I did not mention the fact that when something resonates with us, it is not necessarily good. Sometimes our programs can hijack our resonance/dissonance compass.

Here is an example:

A person has been brought up to believe that teachers are good and that everything they say is true. That a teacher can be trusted, that they know better than us and that we need to disregard our belief or knowledge about a topic and adopt theirs instead.

In this example, the program described above runs very deeply. So, when the person hears something the teacher says, the program dictates the resonance/dissonance of the information. And, because the program says the teacher is always right, the person’s own knowledge becomes dissonant, making the teacher right (resonant to the program).

Another example:

A person runs a very strong program that says, “everyone on the planet is asleep”. The person then meets someone who is awake but teaches that “everyone on the planet is asleep”. The person hears this teaching and feels that is completely resonant. They will then tell others that this teacher is spot on and their teachings completely resonant.

In this second example, the teaching is wrong, but it resonates deeply as true for the person because the person is carrying a program that says it is true.

One might think, “if I can’t trust my resonance/dissonance compass, then how can I navigate life?”

Here are a few tools you can use to discern resonance to empowerment vs resonance to low frequency belief systems:
  • The belief is based on the suffering of self or others being positive.
  • There is righteousness in the belief.
  • The belief is based on fear.
  • The belief means that you or another person are a victim.
  • The belief needs martyrs.
  • There is a need for you or another person to make sacrifices.
  • The belief has the words, “all”, “none”, “never”, “always”, “the only one”, or other all-encompassing words.
  • The words used are disempowering to yourself or others.
  • The belief attacks others in order to be “right”.
  • The person and their words invalidate others to make himself/herself right
  • The belief bolsters your or another person’s ego.
  • The belief excludes all other teachings, teachers and belief systems because it (or the teacher) holds the only true answers.
