vibrations

Definition

Slang

  • plural noun invisible emanations or forces, experienced as psychological sensations; feelings, ambience. A word (and notion) in evidence since its use by 19th-century spiritualists, but in very limited currency until it became part of the vocabulary of jazz musicians, beatniks and, most significantly, hippies. The word was generally shortened to vibes.
