10 Daily Habits to Raise our Vibration
Everything in the universe is made up of energy, vibrating at different frequencies; including our thoughts, words and actions. Energy expands, contracts and changes form; thus what we send out into the Universe always comes back to us. When we raise our vibration not only do we create our reality the way we want it to be, but we also serve others by radiating positive energy out into the world.
Human beings have four ‘lower’ bodies of energy, which resonate at different frequencies: the physical, the emotional, the mental and the spiritual. We also have higher energy bodies that resonate at higher frequencies based on our level of consciousness. When we bring these bodies of energy into alignment and harmony with each other, we achieve higher ‘knowing’ and experience higher purpose to our existence, expand our consciousness and raise our energetic frequency. Our every choice influences whether we are moving in the direction of raising or lowering our vibration.
Our vibrational energy field is ruled by our dominant thoughts, our physical health, our emotions and beliefs. It is also often influenced by others; for instance, when we feel the ‘vibes’ of another person, we are tapping into their field of energy.
Being aware of the bodies as systems of energy and knowing how to harmonize these energies to raise our vibrational frequencies, gives us the power to consciously create our realities as we wish, rather than passively and unconsciously going through life. We have the ability to control the vibrations that emanate from us, and we can thereby control our destinies by stepping into greater states of love, awareness, peace and joy.
When the emotional, mental, and spiritual energetic layers are brought into our awareness, our souls begin to integrate all of our layers, bringing us into a state of wholeness. On the other hand, when we are trapped in ego and hold on to negativity, anger, resentment, judgments and attachments, we vibrate at a lower vibrational frequencies, which are often associated with negative emotions, health problems, depression and anxiety.
However, when we are in alignment with our Highest Selves, we tap into the highest field of energy that resonates in the energy of oneness, unconditional love, compassion and truth. When we are a high vibrational being, we recognize our divinity and the divinity within all lives. A high vibrational frequency is in alignment with a greater sense of balance and a deeper spiritual awareness.
We each have the power to actively participate in our souls’ transformational process, fully accepting and integrating Divine Consciousness. The shifting of our vibration begins when we accept responsibility for all of our life experiences.
As the consciousness of our entire planet is shifting, and as we are entering higher dimensions, our souls and spiritual selves are urging us to let go of our distorted beliefs and limitations from the dark ages, to remove the layers of egoic illusion, and to step into the Light of greater awareness.
We each are called to shift from the old paradigm and consciously participate in the evolution of the New Earth.
Raising our frequency of vibration allows us to have direct guidance from our Higher Self and realize our highest potential, as we tap into our self-healing powers to heal ourselves and others, raising the collective vibration.
Here are 10 daily habits we can cultivate to raise our vibration:
1. Self- Awareness
Self-awareness is the most essential aspect of spiritual growth as it allows us to find our own sense of truth. Being mindfully observant of ourselves, including our thoughts, shifts our consciousness into a higher state so that we can rise above our past choices and repetitive patterns that continue to lead us into suffering and lower vibrations.
One of the most essential steps in becoming a high-vibrational being, is becoming aware of our thoughts. What we focus on with our thoughts and feelings is what we attract into our experience.
Meditation helps us move beyond the mind and enter our internal world where we connect with our deepest truth. When we are in touch with our souls, we are able to access our full potential and bring more love, peace and awareness into every aspect of our lives. And most importantly, meditation helps us remove negative energies caused by the ego, such as fear, anger, resentment, and guilt, which block the Source energy of love, peace and abundance. The more we meditate, the more we transmit peaceful vibrations and grow as spiritual beings.
Counting our blessings shifts our vibrations from focusing on what we don’t have to what is already abundant in your lives. This vibrational shift affects all areas of our lives, including our health, happiness and well-being, and attracts even more things to be thankful for. Gratitude expands our awareness as we align ourselves with the the gifts and wonders of the Universe and directly connect with Source.
“The vibration of gratitude makes you more receptive to good in your life.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith
4. Conscious Breathing
“When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace.” ~Author Unknown
Conscious breathing is powerful and essential for raising our vibration. Breathing is the primary access to our life force. When Prana is flowing through us, our chakras are activated, and thus expanding our consciousness to higher levels. Our life force depends on the frequency of our vibration.The higher the frequency of vibration, the more life force flows through us. Our vibration can be raised through the practice of pranayama (conscious breathing). The core of pranayama is to calm the senses and the mind by solely focusing on the breath. There are several breathing techniques one can practice through yoga.
“For he, who has gained control over his breath, shall also gain control over the activities of the mind. The reverse is also true. For he, whose mind is in control, also controls the breath. The mind masters the senses, and the breath masters the mind.” ~ Hatha Yoga Pradipika
5. Live Foods
What we put in our bodies has a direct effect on our vibrational energy. We can raise our energy vibration and better connect to ourselves, nature and the Universe by eating highly nutritious, energetic foods and eliminating unhealthy thoughts and relationships. Live foods – raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables and sprouted grains, nuts and seeds, are high-energy foods that not only sustain us but raise our vibrational frequency so that we reach higher levels of consciousness and truly live our best lives.
6. Kindness and Compassion
Kindness and compassion are an act of love, and love is the root of all positive energy. Compassion is a soul quality that manifests through kindness. When we use kindness in our interactions with others, we offer acceptance, Love, and compassion, and therefore raise our vibrational frequency and those of others. Kindness is more than just being nice to others; it is a state of spiritual mindfulness, where we allow our souls to shine and light the lives of those around us.
“We rise by lifting others.”~Robert Ingersoll
When we choose kindness as the energetic vibration in our interactions with others, we become a source of healing for ourselves and others. We also create this vibration in the world around us, as each of our actions is magnified and manifested in the world.
A positive life begins with a positive attitude and the willingness to grow. We are each able to change our life paths by changing our beliefs, thoughts, feelings and past patterns engrained in our system. We have the power within us to make new choices that will expand our consciousness, moving us into an upward spiral where we have the potential to raise our vibration high enough to attain Divine union with our Divine self. We must understand that our only true reality is the present moment, so rather than merely accepting that life is happening to us, we can harness the power of our thoughts to actively create a positive reality. How we perceive every moment and situation determines the quality of our life experience.
Furthermore, by choosing how to interpret and define each moment with our thoughts, we can create the life we wish to live. When we emanate positive vibration, we affect those around us; meaning if the person with the higher vibration is more stable in their frequency, the other person’s lower vibration will be raised to meet theirs.
In order to raise our vibration, we have to remove internal blockages that hinder our spiritual growth. Resentment is a major blockage and only keeps us in the dark. Forgiveness is absolutely essential for our healing and growth, as it frees us from the bondage of the past. Forgiveness has nothing to do with the other person; it has everything to do with us, our own inner freedom and desire to move forward in your life. Forgiveness is an energetic experience that occurs when we dissolve and release suppressed traumatic events that are stored in our energy fields. It is important to understand that our souls chose our life circumstances in order to best serve our evolution. This understanding helps us initiate the forgiveness process. Forgiveness comes through love and compassion. Being aware that each experience is part of our growth and that each lesson requires love compassion, gratitude and acceptance to complete, will help us flow through life more easily.
“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”
9. Time in Nature
“Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”~ Gary Snyder
Nature’s harmonious vibrations has a tremendous effect on us, both physically and energetically, and instantly elevates our frequency, because essentially, we are one with it. Being in nature helps us clear our minds and become present and grounded. Time spent in nature is time spent with God.
“The deep observation of nature can transform your consciousness into a higher consciousness that will awaken your true being.”~ Debasish Mridha
Our consciousness determines our vibration. Consciousness is the Source within us, the inner intelligence that mirrors the wisdom of the Universe.
Consciousness requires us to be present in every moment and to respond to life with awareness instead of reacting unconsciously to events and circumstances. Higher levels of consciousness, also referred to as awakening and enlightenment, is often achieved when we are aligned with our truth. Truth is that it is our state of consciousness that creates our world.
When we are lower in consciousness, we are lower in frequency; meaning we are disconnected from our truth and are ruled by our egos. The ego is constantly projecting fear and judgment and restricts the flow of Divine Love and Wisdom. However, when we are higher in consciousness, we are higher in frequency; meaning we are living from our Higher Selves, are connected to Source and allowing Divine Intelligence to flow freely through our minds and bodies.
Raising our vibration begins with an intention and can be practiced in every moment.
