The building block of life is energy, and energy vibrates at different frequencies to form different states and shapes of matter. Vibrational frequencies can affect our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Everything is a reflection of energy and what band of frequency it inhabits. When you begin to notice energy, you will begin to know yourself on an energetic level.
Pay attention to your vibration as you interact with other people, other creatures, and objects in your reality. Energy that makes you feel happy has a different effect on the body than energy that makes you feel sad, angry or even nauseous. We create everything and everyone in our reality through energy. The human body is a conduit for universal source energy, and if you follow the energy you give out, you will find that energy reflected back to you in return.
So how do we raise our vibration? First of all, we often do not give ourselves enough credit for what we can accomplish as human beings.
We are such powerful creatures that we can intentionally affect the energy, vibration and frequency in our realities.
Do What Feels Good
Anything that makes you happy raises your vibrational frequency. Doing something that makes you smile, or laugh is a conscious way to raise your vibration. Figure out what works best for you. I have found that smiling, even when I don ’t feel like smiling, improves the quality of my day. Surround yourself with people and things that make you happy. You can research the science behind smiling and laughter as they both release the feel-good hormones. The happier you are, the higher your vibration will be.
Move Your Body.
According to physics, an object in motion tends to stay in motion while an object at rest tends to stay at rest. If energy isn’t flowing, or becomes stagnant, then problems can arise. A high-vibrating energetic body moves at a higher rate so keeping the cells of your body moving and clear of energetic blockages is essential. Simple movement is key, but many opt to exercise their bodies more often to keep this energy flowing smoothly. A quick jog or sprint will raise your vibration instantly and keep it high as your cells buzz into action and stay in motion.
Ask and You Shall Receive
Asking the universe is perhaps the easiest and most often overlooked way to raise your vibration in any and every moment. You are a powerful creator of your reality. You can declare anything, and you can ask for anything you desire more of. Words are energy and intention is everything in the realm of energy and vibration. Intend to raise your vibration and it does just that! Use this consciously by asking and declaring that you have a high vibration in addition to the other ways to raise your vibration on this list
Environment Is Key
Become mindful of your surroundings. Stuck energy is vibrating at a lower frequency than energy that moves. Move the furniture around your house every so often. Get some new artwork to lighten the place up. Move your work area around and remember to move your physical body to get the energy flowing. Plants and lots of light raise the vibration of a room the quickest. Color changes assist as well; balance darker tones with fresh pops of color to brighten the room.
Anything that makes you feel peaceful assists in raising your vibration. I place crystals and plants around my apartment. I also place positive affirmations in commonly seen places in my space. Obviously clearing your space and energy field with sage and palo santo is a must to maintain a high vibe environment. You can reference my previous article on how to use sage and palo santo if you need any tips!
Using the High Frequency of Sunlight
There is a reason why sunlight is so important to our health and wellbeing. Light from the sun lightens our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Simply look up into the sky and admire the clouds during the day and the stars at night. Light is light. The very word is symbolic of rising upwards as light things tend to float and go higher than dense things. Use the sun and stars to your advantage and declare that your vibration is rising every time your body is in view of these celestial bodies and with every sunbeam or starbeam on your skin that you notice.
Clean Eating is Vital
Sorry ya’ll but processed foods, red meat and sugar are not light foods. You can certainly eat these types of foods and enjoy them too, but your body needs some “light” foods such as fruits and vegetables to function optimally. Eating clean and healthy will lighten your body from the inside out. The very cells of your body will cleanse themselves of the gunk and old debris naturally with the addition of light and healthy foods. Balance is the key with all things and food is no exception. Give your body clean food and water and you will naturally raise your vibration from the inside out.
Water is a Hidden Gem
Water pulses with energy. Moving water means moving energy so have fun in a nice bath or go into the ocean if you are able to. Waterfalls, rivers, streams…any body of water can be a spiritual experience by simply being in its presence. A tiny tabletop water fountain is a nice addition to your environment, and it helps with overall water access as well. Even just hearing water move in a fountain or stream is healing and cleansing to the soul. Water is a natural conductor of energy and electricity (the body is electrical) so use it to your advantage in raising your vibration–use the power of this wonderful element.
The Healing Power of Gaia
Humans who go out in nature often raise their frequency at a faster rate than those who do not. Nature and humans fit perfectly together despite what we may have done to it in the name of progress and innovation. Hug a tree (or just place your hand on one if you’re not ready to embrace your weirdness), breathe in the fresh air, appreciate the shades of green in the different patches of grass and smell the roses, literally. Nature itself is one of the essential tools in the toolbox of human energy and overall health.
Focus on You!
Do not compromise your happiness. It is your responsibility to come from love, honor, and beauty, and not as a result or byproduct of someone else’s energy. Take a mental note of your current feelings. What kind of thoughts are you having about yourself? What kind of energy are you sending your body? Recharge and rejuvenate. When your energy is full and in flow you can naturally give and receive more. Take care of yourself first. Honor your needs and pull away if need be to raise your vibration for your own benefit.
There are Endless Ways to Raise Your Vibration
These are just a few of the staples I use to raise and maintain a high vibration. I suggest giving some of these a go and see how you feel. There are so many more ways to get those frequencies high so do some research on your own, take a new class, try out a new art and see where it takes you. Keeping a high vibration is a vital part of maintaining a balanced, happy and aligned life. So now it’s time to get to work!
