5 Tips to Raise your Vibration

Did you know that you are the main influencer of your energy and your vibration?  Your thoughts, feelings and your actions influence your reality and, as you command your reality, you have influence over your energy and vibration.  You are a part of the Universe and your energy and vibration extend beyond your physical body.  As you become more in tune with the Universe, so too your energy field extends and your vibration levels raise.  Did you know that the events in your life and the people you encounter are a reflection of your energy field and your vibration level?

Nourish your body : at some point in our lives we have all heard “your body is a temple” – that expression is the truth.  If you feed your body processed and sugary foods, your energy drops meaning your energy field contracts and your vibration levels drop resulting in apathy, frustration, short temperedness, anger and hate.  By feeding your body foods that come directly from the farm table to the plate, the natural goodness will only help your body to function at a cleaner, clearer level – your emotions and spirit will be buoyed by the earth’s richness in the vitamins and minerals.  Result?  Your energy field expands and your vibration levels lift to a level of happiness and joy.

Barefoot walking : connecting to the earth and allowing your body to be uninhibited by constrictions will help raise your vibration.  The earth emits energy frequencies and healing energies that can only permeate the body with direct skin contact and  the feet (which are natural receptors) is the best way to do it.  This is called “earthing” and the energies you gather from the earth will travel directly to your Root Chakra enhancing your safety and stability, ensuring you feel more secure and grounded in life.  I talk more about this and other ways to connect with nature here

Smile and the world smiles with you : Yes, smiling does use less facial muscles than frowning!  Which means less likelihood of premature aging (gotta love that!)  Have you ever walked down the street and passed someone who is smiling and happy?  Don’t you walk passed and feel the corners of your mouth twitch just a little?  Happiness is catchy – why not be the one who smiles at strangers and see their faces lift just a little.  Smile with joy in your heart and let it show through not just your smile but through your eyes also.  Let your happiness encompass all those you come in contact with each day.  Not only are you raising your vibration level but you are also helping others to raise theirs.

Gratitude : Too often we go through life expecting certain things to happen, whether from people or events.  Too often we don’t give gratitude for the things that others do for us, or for the day that we are about to experience or the day we have just had.  Understanding that each moment we live is the only time that moment will happen and to show gratitude for whatever that moment brings us – good or bad, happy or sad – is to truly live in the moment.  By continuously looking forward or to the past means we don’t truly live in the present moment.

Give back : When we are born into this world and we grow within our families and communities, as children we take – love, hugs, tenderness, friendship, learning – and as we grow into our teens, twenties and thirties, we learn to transform this into a ‘game’ of give and take – friendships, work relationships, partners.  Then as life progresses, opportunities arise for us to give back to those who are just starting out – our children, nieces and nephews – with the ultimate goal to be in service to all.  As part of our spiritual journey, we understand that we are all part of a great Oneness – that what we do to others, ultimately we are doing to ourselves.  To be able to give back and to be in service to others – through our work, volunteering, philanthropy or whichever means is most aligned with your life – is to honour ourselves, our teachers and the Universe.

Our Spiritual Vibration

nebula vibration

The world of spirituality is full of terminology not used in the mainstream world.  Sometimes these terms can be hard to define succinctly and appear confusing.  One such term is to “raise your vibration” – so what does this mean?

We are all made up of energy.  This is not supposition.  This is now acknowledged scientific fact.  Energy vibrates at different levels – some energy vibrates at higher levels than other energy and as Human Beings we each have a vibration that is uniquely our own, in much the same way as we each have our own DNA.

When you raise your vibration, your frequency vibrates at a higher level – so it is very possible that you will feel that in your physical being.  As your vibration rises, you will become more aware, enlightened and ‘alive’.  This can also produce a shift in your feelings and thoughts and you will realise that you have made a shift from where you were to where you are now.

There are many of us who are knowingly, willingly and consciously raising our vibration, and working with the planet who is also raising her vibration, to help shift the world from the state of extreme Masculine energy into a higher vibrational level of peace, love and community.  A state of Feminine energy

It is important to know that there is no good or bad vibration level.  High vibrations are an indication that someone is living more in a state of love, peace, clarity, forgiveness and compassion.  Lower vibrations are an indication that someone is living in a state of fear, lust, greed, depression and ego.  Part of the reason that we as humans are here on Earth, is to raise ourselves from a lower vibration – through conscious choice – into a state of awareness and oneness with the Universe, Spirit, Divine, God or the Goddess.

With each reincarnation, our soul has the tools to undertake this process, however it can take many lifetimes to achieve – tackling the hurdles of life, learning the lessons that need to be learned and moving towards living in service to the world – the shift of moving into our Higher Self.

There are many people in our world whose vibration will not shift in their current lifetime – this is not a bad thing.  They have chosen to live in a state of un-awareness.  Each of us is here to achieve whatever it is destined for us to achieve – or not.  If you live in a state of expanding awareness to the Universe and life or you do not feel the call, you are not living in a better or worse state of vibration.  By trusting in your soul and choosing an authentic life by living in the moment, you will ‘feel’ your body’s true vibration.

Part of your awakening process – and you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t feel called to be a part of the awakening of the planet – is that you will raise to your natural vibration.  This does not make you better than others; it is simply that you are ready to acknowledge the awareness of the spiritual shift and to move into your true self.  By doing this, you are helping to raise the vibrational energy of every other living being on the planet as well as Earth herself.

As you choose to live in a higher vibration, you understand that you may no longer fit in with many of those around you – family, friends, siblings and loved ones – and you will notice that you may stand out from those around you perhaps because of the shift in your beliefs and values, or because of the change in your approach to life.  Remember though, that as you have raised your vibration, you are also raising the vibration of those around you allowing them the possibility of continuing their awakening journey.  (I will write further on this)  You will find others who live in a higher vibration – like attracts like – and together you will create communities of support, love and understanding much like this Tribe.

The AUM

om-1197557_1280

The AUM is a sacred symbol originating in the ancient religions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

It represents the sound, vibration and consciousness that is the Universe.

It is believed that the creation of the Universe began with a vibration which became a sound, the sound was AUM.  It is the beginning of everything.

The AUM is normally used as a mantra during meditation and during yoga practice.  The belief is that by chanting AUM, it has a profound effect on the body and mind.

The AUM symbol represents the four different states of our life :

A = the first is the conscious state of Vaishvanara, the state of our experiences through our five senses;

U = the second is the dream state of Taijasa, neither conscious nor subconscious;

M = the third is our hidden consciousness, the state of Prajna – what is not yet revealed or has not yet  manifested

The AUM symbol also contains Maya (Illusion) – the part that lies between ourself, our states and enlightenment.  Maya is what keeps us from transcending to enlightenment – the ultimate state.

The fourth is the Transcendental state known as Turiya and is the final state represented in the AUM symbol.  It is the ultimate, enlightened self representing purity, clarity and deep consciousness.  This is where the Self merges with Source, the Divine, Creator of all that is or God and there is no longer any separation.  It is represented by the silence after AUM and is the rarest of all states accomplished in the human experience – Infinite Consciousness.

The symbol we are all familiar with is the visualisation of the representation of the meaning of AUM.  It consists of three curves, a semicircle and a dot.

  • The large curve at the bottom is the conscious or waking state “A”;
  • The middle curve is the dream state “U”;
  • The upper curve is the hidden consciousness, the state of deep sleep “M”;
  • The dot is the fourth state of consciousness “Turiya”; and
  • The semi circle at the top represents “Maya” and separates the state of “Turiya” from the other three states signifying that the illusion that is Maya is an obstacle to reaching Infinite Consciousness.

Each part of the AUM symbol relates to a chakra in the body and as you sound each of the parts of the AUM you become aware of the four states of consciousness as you move up through your body:

  • “A” is the root chakra, the energy centre of the material;
  • “U” is the heart chakra, inward focus of the mind;
  • “M” is the third eye chakra, the state of deep meditation;
  • The silence is the crown chakra which connects us to Universal Consciousness and when we sit in silence, the illusions that separate us from the Universe disappear.

The AUM sounded in conjunction with a conscious energetic movement in the body that balances the chakras and moves you through the four states of consciousness is profound.  To sit in the silence and feel the connection with the Universe.  To know true peace is to have reached the state of the ultimate AUM.

Try AUM as a mantra when you practice your meditation.  Feel the energetic release through the body as you travel through the chakras.  Release and connect through your Crown chakra.  Enjoy the Oneness with the Universe.

Follow your breath and quiet your mind

  1. Choose a time and place that suits you
  2. Choose somewhere you won’t be disturbed;
  3. Choose to meditate only when you feel ready;
  4. If you can’t follow your breath and quiet your mind, don’t stress. Stop and begin again later.

These are the four basic rules I give to all of my students when they come to me to learn meditation.

In a place of meditation, know that you are safe.

Meditation is your gift to your body, mind and soul – somewhere for it to slow, restore and replenish.

To begin:

  1. Seat yourself comfortably on the floor or in a chair – try not to lie down as you’ll fall asleep! The aim is to try to remain as still as possible resisting the urge to fidget or scratch!
  2. Place your hands in prayer position at your heart centre or gently in your lap with your left hand cradling your right, thumb tips touching gently;
  3. Gently close your eyes so they are relaxed;
  4. Straighten your back so you are evenly balanced on each buttock;
  5. Tuck your chin slightly towards your chest so your neck is straight;
  6. Begin to focus on your breathing – through your nose, breathe in to four count, breathe out to four count – try to ensure that the in breath and the out breath are of equal duration;
  7. Listen to your heart beat and notice that with each in and out breathe, the rate will begin to slow;
  8. Your mind will keep chattering away – thoughts will come into your head – try not to pay them attention, let them come and go without engaging them;
  9. Remain in this position for as long as is comfortable but try for at least five minutes;
  10. Enjoy the sensation of the breath;
  11. When you are ready, slowly bring your awareness back to the room and gently open your eyes.  Notice the relaxation in your body and your mind.

Alternatives to four count breath;

  • Say the mantra ‘AUM’ (pronounced ‘ohm’) each out breath;
  • Count backwards from 100 on each out breath and begin again each time you forget where you are up to; or
  • Open your eyes slightly and focus on the flame of a candle, a mandala or picture, or a spot on the floor in front of you and gently breathe in and out evenly.

Don’t become frustrated and stressed at the mindless chatter that will keep going on in your head – this is your Ego trying to engage you – learning to meditate is a new tool and your Ego just needs to get used to it!  If you can practice this for five minutes each day you will find the chatter will become less and the mind will welcome quiet.

The Mind as Healer

woman meditatimg

During the Hay House Online Summit on Healing last week, I watched Dr Joe Dispenza’s lecture on “Programming your Mind for remarkable recovery”.  In this he discusses (amongst other things) the impact of meditation on not only our daily lives, but also on the lives of those who have suffered or are suffering, illness.  I have spent the last week thinking about meditation and what an impact it’s had on my life.

I began meditating about 14 years ago.  My yoga teacher at the time, a truly wonderful spiritual woman, always ended our yoga class with a 30minute meditation.  As a new mum, it was bliss and I couldn’t wait to go to class twice each week just to experience the meditation.  From there, I developed my own meditation practice and have made it a large part of my life with daily practice of between 5minutes to 2hours.  Two years ago I felt called to train and became certified as a Meditation Teacher so that I can help others who wish to begin or progress along their journey.

If you’ve watched any of Dr Joe’s videos, you will know that he discusses in depth the science behind meditation and what they have found in people who have incorporated a practice into their lives – they are able to heal their bodies from dis-ease, anxiety and stress.  I am also a believer in the power of the mind and our consciousness to work with Spirit and the Universe to accomplish amazing things.

Through meditation, the physiology of the body changes – each cell is imbued with more energy, the energy helps the body to feel younger and more alive.

Meditation has been proven to :

  1. Lower blood pressure;
  2. Reduce anxiety by reducing the stress hormone;
  3. Improves the immune system primarily through the decrease in stress which puts pressure on the cells of the body; and
  4. Decreases tension pain – headaches and insomnia are two ailments that benefit immensely from meditation.

Meditation aids in the healing of the body by placing the brain into an Alpha State – the mind is relaxed and the neurons are able to establish pathways as well as categorise and store information received.   We access this state naturally while we are asleep or are daydreaming.

This helps you to :

  1. Be more creative;
  2. Be emotionally stable;
  3. Develop your intuition;
  4. Increase clarity;
  5. Be more focussed; and
  6. Increase self awareness.

By placing the body into a calm state, you are helping it repair itself and preventing new damage from the effects of stress.  By quieting the mind, you are reducing the stress induced thoughts that keep the body’s stress response triggered.  Over time, the long term resilience that is built up allows the body and the mind to recover from stressful situations far quicker and overall, experience less stress in life situations.
