7 Steps to Raising your Vibration

Those of you who have seen the movie The Secret or who are familiar with the Law of Attraction will realise how important it is for us to raise our vibration, or in other words, how important it is to 'feel good' as much as possible during our day, e

Having a high vibration, that feeling of enthusiasm for life will serve to act like a magnet that will continuously attract more and more things and circumstances that resonate with that high vibration.

So, here are seven great tips on raising YOUR vibration that you can use immediately.

1. Police your thoughts

Be aware and mindful of the thoughts that you allow yourself or find yourself thinking. As soon as you become aware that a thought is making you feel bad, understand the value of dropping that thought. Thoughts should flow freely through your mind, and these can be negative or positive, the ones that count are the thoughts that ‘stick’ in your mind, the thoughts that you continuously think over and over are the ones that will affect your vibration.

As soon as you realise that you are stuck in a thought that is causing you to feel bad, that alone is enough to remove the thought. Purposefully focus on thoughts that you like and that make you feel good. Be like the good gardener, who waters the plants and not the weeds.

2. Speak only of what you want, never about what you do not want

Develop this simple habit of speaking only in terms of the end products that you want. Language is extremely powerful and every word and concept is accompanied by a feeling that either lowers or raises our vibration. The mind/universe/God does not understand negatives i.e. the word NOT.

For example, If you are cycling your bike and see a stone in the road you immediately begin focusing on NOT hitting the stone, To think of not hitting it you have to see a picture in your mind of yourself hitting the stone to understand what NOT to do and in all probability with that laser sharp focus all of us are capable of, we hit the very object we try to avoid. THIS IS WORTH RE-READING!

3. Surround yourself with positive and like minded people.

Have you every had the experience of being around someone for a short period of time only to find yourself feeling bad, drained of energy and enthusiasm? These psychic vampires tend to be people who have lost their understanding of the abundant nature of the universe; they derive their self esteem and vibration energy by spreading their pessimistic opinions and by sometimes intentionally putting others down.

They tend to believe in lack, and have an air of pessimism or hopelessness about them. When you ask such a person ‘How’s Life?’ the usually respond “Taking Forever!”. On the other hand have you ever met people who you walk away from feeling energised, enthusiastic, and happy? Like-minded people tend to have a synergistic effect on each others vibrations when they meet. Inspired ideas can sometimes come out of the blue during a 5 minute conversation with such people.

4. Spend time in ‘The Now’

Eckhart Tolle in his book “The Power of Now” informs us of the value of ceasing the flow of thoughts relating to the past or the future. Spending time observing what is happening right in front of our noses is a powerful way to raise our vibration energy. By ceasing the chatter of the mind we return to our natural state of alignment with the universe and recharge our batteries.

Once we are on the same high level of vibration as the universe we can literally communicate with it. Ideas, inspiration, answers, realisations all happen while in this state of being known as ‘The Now’.

5. Tithing – Set aside time or money to give away

Robert Kiyosaki recommends you set up 3 piggy banks and save the same amount in each one every day. The first one is for savings, the second is for investing and the third is for tithing, that is, money you are committed to just giving away. This is a secret of the rich person’s mindset due to the fact that it raises the feel good factor, and thus your vibration.

Even if you have no money nothing stops you acting in this way, it works the same if you save 10 cents per day or 1000 dollars per day. Imagine how good you would feel by donating money to a worthy cause every month and having them express their gratitude to you for it.

6. Be selective about what you watch and listen to on Television/Radio/Media.

Most people allow the media intravenous access to their minds. Newspaper headlines create horrific imagery and feelings at a glance, news services decide what news we ‘need’ to hear, whether it is useful to us or not, and some television programs show us the ugly nasty side of life, the internet is full of opportunities to waste time and absorb useless information.

Take control of the media by being selective about what you watch and listen to. Select programs and material that inspire you or at the very least educate you in something useful. In this way the media can be a tremendous tool to raise your vibration level (Just look at the phenomenal coverage of The Secret in the media at present!)

7. Count your blessings

If you ever feel down or feel your vibrations are low, you will probably observe that you are dwelling on some thought that is de-pressing these vibrations. If you begin to count your blessings and think of all the things that are going right in your life, all of the things you are grateful to be part of or to have, then your thoughts become feelings of optimism, enthusiasm, high vibration which then begin attracting immediately to you, more blessings to count, and circumstances to be grateful for!
