raise your vibration

The secret to improving any aspect of your life lies in learning how to raise your vibration. 

First, here’s a quick refresher on what vibration is, and how it forms the basis of everything you experience and create.

As human beings, we are both energy transmitters and energy receivers.  This means, we’re constantly generating a vibration that is broadcasted to the far corners of the universe.  And what comes back to us in the form of our life experiences always matches the vibe we’re sending out.  

The thoughts you think generate a vibration and place you in energetic proximity of other similar-feeling thoughts.  Likewise, the beliefs you hold carry a certain vibration. And these beliefs make you more likely to attract experiences that confirm what you’ve already concluded to be true.  Your chronic moods, emotions and attitudes also become a vibrational habit or set-point that you return to time and time again.  

What most people don’t realize is that with a little practice, we can actually offer our vibration on purpose.  Which is to say, we can deliberately raise the frequency of our thoughts, our words and our emotions to a higher level.  And when we do, we change our vibrational point of attraction completely.  This is how we can begin to magnetize from the universe at large more of what we desire.  

Here are 3 energy mastery practices that will support you in raising your vibration, and therefore, up-leveling your entire life.

Practice #1 to raise your vibration:  Get your energy moving.  

A high vibration is one that’s moving at a faster and less resistant rate of speed.  Low vibrations are those that are stagnant or moving at a resisted and therefore slower rate. One of the best ways to understand vibration is to consider the range of your emotions. 

Your emotions run along a spectrum of frequency from high to low.  And like the spectrum of light frequencies in a rainbow, they range from denser, more resistant energies to those that are progressively more subtle and free-flowing.  

At the high end of your emotional spectrum are good-feeling emotions like joy, appreciation, empowerment, freedom, and love. And at the opposite end of the continuum, we dip into the range of horrible-feeling emotions:  Shame, despair, grief, depression, and hopelessness. In fact, these vibrations are so slow-moving in terms of their energetic frequency that we actually feel paralyzed when we experience them. 

So when you find yourself in a slower-moving, more resistant state of being, the first thing to do is to Get. Your. Energy. Moving.

Put on music that engages or inspires you.  Change the environment you’re in and give your senses new impressions to take in.  Bring your awareness to your breath.  Drink a large glass of water.  Take a shower with hot water then cold.  Clear the clutter from your desk.  Go for a drive.  Spend a few moments outside.  If possible, go for a brisk walk or do a few yoga poses.  

Remember that your body and mind are intimately connected in an ongoing feedback loop.  Whatever you do that raises the vibration of one will automatically increase the frequency of the other.  And when your body is energized, your mind and emotions will follow suit.

Practice #2 to raise your vibration:  Watch your words. 

The thoughts you think generate a vibration, which is carried along a particular energetic wavelength.   And when you voice your thoughts aloud, the momentum of those thought waves moves faster and faster.  Your words are creative in nature, which is why it’s so important to choose them deliberately and well.  

Words like, “He/she will never like me,” “Why is this so hard?” or “I’ll never succeed,” are like affirmations-in-reverse.  Rather than leading us in proximity to the things we want to create, they nurture the very outcomes we’re trying to avoid.   And, most of us have become so accustomed to using our words to miscreate that these conversations actually occur to us as “normal.”   

It’s “normal” to use others as a sounding board for our insecurities or self-doubts.  Also “normal” to gossip, complain and point out petty annoyances.  And, It’s “normal” to argue for our limitations to the point that we lose sight of our many blessings and gifts.     

Every word we speak generates momentum, and the more words we offer about what isn’t wanted, the more unwanted momentum we create.  Put simply, if we talk about everything that’s terrible, we not only feel terrible, but are more likely to create terrible outcomes.  But thankfully, this also works in reverse.  With a little deliberate attention, we can align our words with the positive outcomes we desire to create.  

Practice #3 to raise your vibration:  Cultivate the energy of gratitude.  

Your mind is a focusing mechanism, and the direction of your focus has an enormous impact on your personal vibration.  With the power of your focus, you can tune into energies that are enlivening and expansive. And you can also choose to focus on circumstances that are horrible and devastating.  This is the amazing gift of free will.  No one but you has the power to choose the direction of your attention.   

If you’re focused on what’s missing, what’s wrong, or what didn’t go well in the past, your vibration will plummet.  And if you look for things to appreciate, it will soar.  And this is where practicing gratitude comes in.  

The energy of gratitude is one of the highest vibrations in all the universe.  With the same velocity that negative thinking repels the outcomes we desire, gratitude attracts them to us.   This is because gratitude causes us to focus on the abundance we already have, which expands us and increases our capacity for more.  In a state of gratitude, you become magnetic – not just to other people and opportunities, but to everything you desire.   

Use the power of your words to speak often about the things you appreciate, and to acknowledge the blessings that are all around you. In so doing, you raise your vibration to the frequencies where love, success, freedom, prosperity, and joy abound.    

Raising your vibration really comes down to becoming more sensitive to the way you feel.  With the words you offer, the things you focus on, and the images you conjure in your mind, pay attention to only one thing:  How does this make me feel?  What raises your mood will naturally raise your vibration.
