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.

The Mind as Healer

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.

Society has set parameters around what is deemed to be acceptable and unacceptable insofar as how we, as women, are supposed to look.  As we get older (and a little wiser!) we realise that these ‘rules’ are harsh and unrealistic.

I happened across this article from Uplift this morning and it resonated so much with me that I had to re-post it here.  I hope that it helps many of us, and our children and grandchildren as this applies as much to boys and men as it does to girls and women, to realise that the expectations set down by society are damaging and demeaning.  Learning self love and acceptance goes a long way in loving who we are and our importance in the universe, as does learning to accept those around us in the same way.

I have always been fascinated by other cultures and the lessons that they teach – this is a perfect example of such a lesson from the Japanese culture.  I am not one for cultural appropriation but I do believe that other cultures can teach us so much, as we can teach others lessons from our culture.

So, I hope this article and the concept of ‘wabi-sabi’ helps each of you in accepting who you are – blemishes, love handles and all!  If we can begin by accepting each other in the same way, our small collective consciousness can help influence other collectives and help move this aspect of our society into acceptance.
