Imagine a time when you felt in alignment in your life: you’re in a great mood, things are going well, and you’re in sync with everyone and everything around you.
That sounds like you were in a high vibration.
Now think of a time when it seemed like everything that could go wrong did go wrong, you were in a terrible mood, and you just felt out of sorts.
That sounds like a low vibration.
In short, your vibration speaks to your energetic frequency.
All matter resonates at different frequencies and, in general, negative feelings and energy tend to mean a low vibration and positive feelings and energy tend to mean a high vibration.
What does a low vibration feel like?
You already know what a low vibration feels like: you’re sluggish, feeling down, and more. But here’s what else it feels like:
- You feel tired and lethargic
- You’re emotionally distant
- You’re very self-focused
- You suffer from chronic illness
- You are physically unfit and unhealthy
- You often feel jealous
- You don’t know what you want
- You’re unfulfilled
- You complain
- You argue
- You focus on the negative
What does a high vibration feel like?
Conversely, a high vibration feels like you’re in a good flow, in alignment, along with:
- You’re self-aware
- You’re creative
- You’re balanced
- You’re grateful
- You nurture yourself and your body
- You nurture others
- You live in the present
- You regularly experience joy
- Your body is strong and healthy
- You are in tune with your intuition
- You are confident
Why Vibration Matters
High energy vibrations are more than just about feeling good. It’s also about manifesting more good and manifesting (or attracting) more of what you want.
In general, it’s far more challenging to attract what you want when you’re at a low vibration. Think about it from a simple mood perspective: why would anyone want to engage with the crankiest version of you? Energy doesn’t want none of that!
All that said, we all are going to have times with high vibration and times with lower vibration. That’s all part of life.
That doesn’t mean we can’t work to raise our vibration now and again, though. Here’s how.
17 Ways to Raise Your Vibration
Ok, you’re starting to get it now. You know that high vibrations are good for your mood and for attracting what you want in life. But you also get that low vibrations happens and are totally normal.
So how do you raise your vibration? (That’s right…you can improve your vibration from low to high!)
INCORPORATE THE ELEMENTS
1. Get in water
I’m a big believer in the healing power of water. As a Scorpio (hey, water signs!) water is extra powerful for cleansing my energy. Here are a few ways to use water:
- Splash water on your face
- Soak a bath
- Take a shower
- Take a swim in a lake, river, ocean, or pool
2. Get outside
A little fresh air can make all the difference. Get outside – day or night – and spend a few minutes taking some deep breaths. Take a walk if you can to move your body and bonus: walk barefoot on the earth to really ground back in.
3. Use crystals
Incorporate the power of crystal healing to improve your vibration. Look for the crystal(s) that match with what you need the most of right now.
CHANGE YOUR FOCUS
4. Show gratitude
Energy flows where attention flows, and it’s no different when it comes to being thankful for what you have.
Try starting and/or ending your day by thinking about 2-3 things you’re grateful for.
It’s no secret that meditating can improve your vibration by calming your thoughts and bringing your focus back where it best serves you.
If you’re new to meditation, try searching for a simple 5- or 10-minute meditations on YouTube.
6. Focus on the positive
Positive thoughts = positive energy, right? YES!
How can you put a positive spin on each and every situation? Change your mindset and your vibration will follow.
USE YOUR SENSES
7. Practice deep breathing
It’s incredible what a few deep breaths can do for your body, especially since so many of us tend to hold our breath or often take shallow breaths. Recalibrating, calming, and easing anxiety, even 5 deep breaths will have your vibration improving in no time.
8. Move your body
Whether you love yoga, dancing it out, lifting weights, or going for a walk, moving your body will do wonders not only for your vibration, but your overall health too!
9. Eat high vibrational foods
Whole fruits and vegetables have inherently higher vibrations than processed and less nutritious foods. Consuming higher vibe food will help raise your vibration.
10. Drink plenty of water
Keep your vibration high with plenty of water. This not only hydrates your beautiful body, but also flushes anything unwanted out!
11. Eliminate toxins
Similarly, decreasing the amount of toxins (pollutants in the air, consuming alcohol or tobacco, etc.) in our bodies will undoubtedly increase our vibration as well.
12. Listen to high vibrational sounds
Certain sounds or music have different vibrational frequencies which can help alter our own vibration. Harsh sounds and music have the opposite effect.
Try searching for specific vibrational frequencies on YouTube to experiment what you need to work with!
13. Practice kindness
Being kind feels good for you and it feels good for others. It only makes sense that it would help raise your vibe!
14. Give, donate, or volunteer
Giving, whether it’s financially or time-based giving, is an excellent way to increase your own vibration as well as for those around you.
15. Get creative
Whether you enjoy making art, writing, crafting, gardening, or anything you can imagine, getting creative will help improve your vibration.
16. Say no to what doesn’t serve you
Raising your vibration doesn’t mean always saying yes; sometimes it means saying no to the things, activities, opportunities, and even people that don’t serve your highest and greatest good.
17. Block out negative vibrational people
For my empaths in the room, it’s important to protect your energy. Empaths and highly sensitive people tend to take on the energy of others, so try imagining a bubble around yourself when in proximity to others.
This will help train your brain and your body to block out negative energy from others, or simply energy that isn’t your own.
How are you going to start increasing your vibration today?
