According to universal law and the science of quantum physics, everything in the universe is fundamentally made of pure energy that is constantly moving, vibrating at different speeds. As a result, we each have our own ‘vibrational frequency’, which impacts every aspect of our lives.
This is, in fact, where the Law of Attraction comes into play. The idea that YOU create your own reality, and like attracts like. Similar to radio waves, your vibrational frequency emanates from your cumulative thoughts, emotions and consciousness, and is constantly being broadcast out into the universe. This broadcast then attracts similar experiences, people, and opportunities…both good and bad. A high vibration attracts positive, spiritually uplifting experiences, while a low vibration attracts the opposite.
The good news is, as the creator of your life, you have the power to change your frequency and raise your vibration at any moment. Here are 10 of the most powerful ways to raise your vibration to live a more positive, meaningful life:
Meditate – By helping you process your thoughts and quieting the ego, meditation retreat gives you tools to release stress and negativity. It connects us to the space within that transcends thoughts, feelings and circumstances, bringing us greater peace and equanimity. The more you meditate, the more you will inhabit the meditative state in your waking life.
Take part in a ‘digital detox’ – Although computers, smart phones and iPads can help with many aspects of our modern lives, all electronic devices emit subtle, invisible electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that can negatively impact your energy field. It’s best to use electronic devices for no more than two hours at a time before taking a break. Avoid reaching for your phone first thing in the morning, and stop using it at least an hour before you go to bed.
Be conscious of your environment – Our physical environment mirrors our emotional state, and a cluttered home is a sure sign of a cluttered mind.
Spend time with positive people – When we surround ourselves with people who dim our light, it is impossible to live to our fullest potential. It’s been said that you become the sum of the five people you spend the most time with, so take a good look at your social circle and make sure it’s elevating, not suppressing, your vibrational frequency. Spend time with people who lift you up and allow you to be your authentic self, and release toxic people from your life without guilt or shame.
Spend time in nature – Nature grounds us and surrounds us with positive energy. When surrounded by nature, our ego starts to dissolve, our low frequencies start to dissipate, and we raise our vibration. Just noticing the trees, feeling your feet rooted in the grassy earth, and breathing in fresh air will help you reconnect with your higher self.
Clean up your diet – An abundance of energy, mental clarity, and inner peace all start with what we put into our bodies. Everything you consume is prana, or life force energy. If you eat a lot of “dead” energy (in the form of meat, fried, or processed food), you will lower your vibration. By eating nutrient-dense, prana-rich foods, like local and organic fruits and vegetables, your body literally absorbs these things, making you more light, vibrant, and alive.
Be conscious of your thoughts (and practice gratitude!) – Your thoughts become your reality. Pay attention to the way you talk about yourself and other people. Let go of judgment and release your fear of what other people think, and do what you love. Appreciation of little things. Forgive. Stop complaining and instead focus on gratitude! Practice saying thank you to people in your life more regularly, and keep a daily gratitude journal listing everything you appreciate about yourself, your life and the world around you.
Move your body – By moving our bodies, our vibration can start to move too. Whether it’s walking, running, swimming or practicing yoga, yin yoga physical exercise can help get you out of mental or emotional ruts and boost healthy endorphins. If you don’t like working out, dance, walk, go in nature, and find ways to move your body that make you feel good. It doesn’t matter how much you sweat; the key is moving through and away from energies that could be weighing you down in your current environment.
Serve others – Countless studies have shown that those who volunteer their time towards service to others and the world are happier, healthier, and more personally fulfilled. The simple act of taking the focus off of your own problems and serving others will move you into greater alignment with the natural flow and grace of the universe.
Love yourself – Be your own best friend, because the only thing that we have and control, in the end, is ourselves. Treat yourself well. Respect your boundaries and values. Listen to your body and soul. When you love yourself, and completely accept yourself, you begin to love and accept others as they are as well. This, in turn, allows you to let go of negative emotions such as jealousy, resentment, hatred, anger, and manipulation, helping you become your best self.
When you implement these 10 tips, you’ll inevitably be releasing things, people, feelings, thoughts, and situations that no longer serve your highest good. You’ll be creating a frequency and this will become you’re new norm. This state of being is magical and you get to experience it every day if you choose to do so. By becoming the best version of yourself, you can also help others do the same, and ultimately lead humanity to a more positive place.
