I assume you’re familiar with manifestation and the Law of Attraction by now. You understand that in order to manifest something into your life you first need to be a vibrational match for that thing or experience. You’ve read that your desires and your dream reality exists at a higher vibrational frequency and now you’re wondering how you can raise your vibration and match the frequency of your desires, right?
This is exactly what we will talk about today! To be fully transparent with you, when I first heard about raising the vibration I thought it was way out there and foolish. But now that I’ve got the science behind it, it totally makes sense (hello logical mind!).
Everything is Energy
Quantum physics shows us that everything in this universe is made up of energy, even if it appears to be solid to the human eye. Everything is energy at the most fundamental levels. Our body is made up of cells, these cells are made up of molecules, that in turn are made up of atoms and subatomic particles. When looked at anything under a microscope, there are subatomic particles vibrating at a specific frequency. This is where the Law of Vibration also comes in. The Law of Vibration states that everything in this universe is made of energy and that everything vibrates at its own frequency. You are made of energy and therefore you’re vibrating at a specific frequency.
Every thought, feeling, emotion and belief has its own vibrational frequency. How you feel impacts your vibration and your vibration is therefore shifting moment to moment. This is where the terms high vibe and low vibe come from, where high vibe is connected to feeling positive emotions like love, joy and happiness - and low vibe is associated with feeling anger, shame and fear.
And as you know by now, the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. So this means that low vibrational energy attracts more low vibrational energy, and vice versa. When people first hear about these laws their first reactions tend to be fear. They’re scared that if they have a bad day or negative thoughts they'll have a low vibe and so they’re going to attract more low vibrational experiences, situations and people to them. They turn away from their friends that have a bad day and want help or someone to talk to, because they’re scared that being around low vibe people will affect them in a negative way.
You can have a bad day and still be a vibrational match for what you want!
You can sigh of relief now because having a bad day or having negative thoughts will not bring you into a low vibrational state! You can have a bad day and still be a vibrational match for what you want! What is sent out to the universe is the average of how you feel. You’re a human being so it’s normal to feel all of the different emotions and to feel the dualistic nature of life. Because without feeling pain you wouldn’t know joy.
Think of your body as an example: when you first decide to start working out and eating healthy, you won’t see any difference from your first morning run, gym session or salad or green juice you consume. Also, when you’ve been working out for a month and eating healthy, you won’t notice any difference if you take one or two days off and don’t workout or if you decide to eat cake.
Then another reaction people have when hearing that like attracts like is to try and be happy all of the time and just think positive thoughts. Like how many times haven’t you come across that on the internet already? If thinking positive thoughts only would work, then we can all agree that you wouldn’t be reading this blog post, wondering how to raise your vibration so that you can call in your desires. No, because you would be busy already living your dream life!
Thinking only positive thoughts will not raise your vibration if you have a lot of things underneath the surface that you haven’t looked at and addressed.
You are naturally a high vibrational being
You are naturally a high vibrational being. When you’re born you’re pure consciousness. But what happens is that along your journey you layer on beliefs and stories that you pick up from your environment, caregivers and school, for why things are the way they are and why a person like you could never do or experience certain things. Then you have your own life experiences that then confirms your pre-existing beliefs and become a self-fulfilling prophecy and in turn shape your reality.
You have this large backpack that you constantly carry around, everywhere you go, full of old stuff like beliefs, thoughts, stories and feelings you haven’t looked at and healed. The backpack is full of crap that you’ve collected along your journey, that has clogged up your energy field and lowered your vibration. We all have an energy field that goes beyond our bodies, what some call the aura. When you release all the crap and clear up your energy field, you will naturally rise to a higher state of consciousness and higher vibrations, back to who you are at your core.
Knowing all of this, our focus shifts from raising our vibration to releasing all of the crap that we have collected throughout the years that clogs up our energy field. This is why you won’t get suggestions about keeping a gratitude journal, just doing your affirmations more often, surrounding yourself with people you love, visualizing or meditating. While these are all amazing, they aren’t addressing the deeper layers that first need to be looked at and healed before tools like affirmations, visualizing and scripting your dream day will work for you.
Alright, let's get into the juicy stuff now! There are several powerful ways you can release the crap and naturally raise your vibration.
Breathwork is a powerful tool when it comes to raising your vibration. Breathwork is a form of active meditation in which we focus on a specific breathing pattern in order to enter into a different state of consciousness - where true transformation and healing takes place. Breathwork helps you release negative emotions, limiting beliefs and clear your energetic blocks while simultaneously raising your vibration. Breathwork is the reset button to your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being!
Breathwork helps move the energy in your body and release stuck and unprocessed emotions (because emotions are energy in motion) from the body. Read more about breathwork and book your breathwork here.
This is the F word that many are trying to avoid... no it's not fuck! This F word WILL SET YOU FREE! I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: forgiving your past is the best gift you can give yourself. Forgiveness work is underrated and overlooked for it’s simplicity. Forgiving yourself for your past mistakes and forgiving others for their wrongdoings will radically shift your vibration. Forgiveness clears so much emotional and mental space! There are a lot of misconceptions about what forgiveness is and isn’t - I have laid them all out for you in the blog post on why you should forgive and how to actually do it in an effective way.
Release Trapped Emotions
It’s not the past memories and experiences themselves that affect your vibration. We all have them! It’s rather the negative emotional charge attached to these memories and experiences that you’re still holding onto that clogs up your energy field and lowers your vibration. It’s actually the suppressing and resisting of feeling and processing unwanted emotions like guilt, shame, fear, hurt, anger and pain that lowers your vibration in first place. It’s like trying to cover up a pile of shit by sprinkling glitter on top of it - the shit still stinks! The 5-step process to release any stuck or trapped emotions from the body is super simple and effective.
