What is Right With Burning Man? Part 1: A Theory in Frequency, Vibration and the Power of Unconditional Love

A guest post by Burner Ayahuasca

fav-profileIf you had an opportunity to walk through a portal to a higher dimensional reality would you take it? Would you be open to experiencing a place of vibrant love, acceptance, expression, kindness and caring? When you first get your ticket to Burning Man or even more accurately the second you set your intention to go to Burning Man the magic starts to happen. A journey begins that parallels Peter Pans trip to Neverland in many ways. You’re going to a different dimension, whether you realize it or not. Burning Man has been pure magic for me since the second I decided I was going to go. From manifesting a ticket a week before the event in one of the most remote places in the world after giving up on buying one online (70,000 tickets sell out instantly), to the incredible people and experiences on the playa it has all been an indescribable experience. This article is going to be a theory about frequency, vibration, consciousness, love, growth and what it is to be human. It is not going to be all of the thing’s “wrong” with Burning Man; sure it’s not perfect nothing is. Rather this is going to be about everything that is RIGHT with Burning man.

From my perspective there are three types of people who go to Burning Man. The first group come and don’t know what’s going on but are still being affected by the environment. The second group don’t know what’s going on but they KNOW something is going on and have had personal experiences in ‘playa magic’ (law of attraction), deep spiritual healing or awakenings but are unsure of what exactly happened. Finally, the last group KNOW something is going on and have a personal understanding/experience/idea of what that is.

Nikola Tesla said, “If you wish to understand the universe, think of energy, frequency and vibration.” Put in another way from one of history’s greatest minds, Einstein said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” When you walk around the playa there is an unmistakeable energy in the air, it reverberates and vibrates through you. This vibration is the high frequency of LOVE. Just imagine for a second you went missing for a year and everyone you knew thought you were dead but incredibly, you were rescued. As you arrive home everyone you love and hold most dear is waiting for you. When that door opens you can FEEL that LOVE, acceptance, caring and connection with your family and friends. The energy is unmistakeable. This high frequency can be felt all throughout Burning Man. 70,0000 people are pumping pure, positive love and energy to everyone. Boundaries, labels, and judgments have all fallen away and we can allow ourselves to open up and experience our true nature together in harmony, bliss, peace, and understanding. Remember when as a culture we were racist? Sexist? Homophobic? Where we hate what we don’t understand and kill those people? Where we operate under the condition of fear? There is no place for that here because it is EGO based and cannot live in a placer of higher consciousness. We are witnessing and experiencing the power of unconditional love. The human body is pure energy and we are always sending a vibration out into the universe. The part of our body, not surprisingly, that has the most powerful measurable energetic force is our heart. The science connecting spirituality and the non-physical is astounding. The Heart Math Institute is doing incredible work and research on the power of our hearts. Here is a brief summary of a paper written by Rollin McCraty Ph.D on The Energetic Heart: Bioelectromagnetic Communication Within and Between People. This will give you an idea of the how the energy vortex is created at Burning Man.

“The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. The electrical field as measured in an electrocardiogram (ECG) is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves recorded in an electroencephalogram (EEG). The magnetic component of the heart’s field, which is around 100 times stronger than that produced by the brain, is not impeded by tissues and can be measured several feet away from the body with Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID)-based magnetometers (1). We have also found that the clear
rhythmic patterns in beat-to-beat heart rate variability are distinctly altered when different emotions are experienced. These changes in electromagnetic, sound pressure, and blood pressure waves produced by cardiac rhythmic activity are “felt” by every cell in the body, further supporting the heart’s role as a global internal synchronizing signal.” Read more here https://www.heartmath.org/

In summation, McCraty is saying that our hearts emit a strong frequency and it can be felt, measured, and synchronized. To understand this in another way we can look at the law of resonance. This law is very deep and complex. We are going to cover a few simple points. The first point is that frequencies interact with each other. As they interact with each other they begin to synchronize. The synchronicity creates a much hiImage result for higher dimension frequenciesgher combined amplitude and the more frequencies (people) that are on the same wave length, the more the signal exponentially grows. Finally and most important, the lower frequency will rise to the higher frequency! Welcome to the 4th Dimension, welcome to Neverland. Welcome to the beautiful frequency of LOVE and what theoretically could be an evolution of consciousness, humanity, or a growth from 3rd to 4thdimensional time/space. This concept and understanding is the essence of the book the Celestine Prophecy. When enough of us can vibrate the frequency of love and compassion the world will make a natural shift into harmony!

This concept may be difficult to understand for some and is deep truth for others. If you’ve ever experienced an Ayahuasca ceremony, which I am honoured to say is my Playa name, there is a good chance that you would have experienced this place, this perspective and understanding. This is a concept and place that cannot be verbalized but must be experienced and felt. The world of quantum mechanics is absolutely fascinating and I invite you to look into the field of particles and vibration if you are drawn toward science to form your understanding of the world. With that brief introduction into the scientific theory of things I invite you to experience Burning Man from the other side of the spectrum with an open mind.

Here are some fascinating videos and documentaries you may enjoy.


Burning Man for Water Geeks

desal prize

I think Bloomberg Business perhaps believe too much of their own coverage, which portrays Burning Man as a contest between rival techno-billionaires trying to outdo each other with the latest innovations in art cars, blinky lights, and slavery sherpas and Mistresses of Merriment. This caused them to liken the USAID Global Development Lab’s Desal Prize competition to Black Rock City. I see desert, nerds, and solar panels, so I get the association…perhaps needs a little more nudity, drugs, and electronic music.

Still, this event sounds like a great one – and I wish there was more stuff like this at Burning Man.

Here’s the official press release from USAID:


For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Swedish International Development Agency, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of The Netherlands announced the launch of the Desal Prize for innovations in brackish water desalination.  The Desal Prize is part of the $32 million Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development. The U.S. Bureau for Reclamation is providing support in the design and implementation of the prize.

USAID Global Water Coordinator Christian Holmes announced the prize at a U.S. Department of State event marking World Water Day, an annual global celebration highlighting the importance of freshwater resources. White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director John P. Holdren also spoke at the event.

“Water scarcity is one of today’s most pressing development challenges, and the impact of water on all aspects of development is undeniable,” said Holmes. “We must augment traditional water supplies to satisfy future demand. We urgently need solutions to fulfill the growing need for potable water.”

While water desalination technologies currently exist, few are suitable for rural or remote areas where brackish water is abundant and there is a great need for technologies that can provide fresh water for home and farm use.  Projections indicate that by 2025, two-thirds of world’s populations could be living in severe water stress conditions.

The Desal Prize will award up to $500,000 in grand prize money to individuals or organizations that develop cost effective, energy-efficient, brackish water desalination technologies that provide safe water for drinking and agricultural use. Up to ten semifinalists will also receive seed money to test or further develop their device.

In addition to the prize launch, 83 semi-finalists were named from Securing Water for Food’s first $15 million call for innovations. Launched at the 2013 World Water Week in Stockholm, Securing Water for Food aims to source, incubate, and accelerate innovative solutions to reduce water scarcity around the world. The semifinalists are working on groundbreaking water technologies and new financing products to improve water access. The finalists, who will be announced in September 2014, will receive between $100,000 and $3 million in funding and business development assistance.

We desperately need innovation in water harvesting and conservation; there are billions of dollars at stake.
