According to universal law and the science of quantum physics, everything in the universe is fundamentally made of pure energy. This energy is constantly moving, oscillating and vibrating at different speeds – fast or slow. Though we have flesh and bones, we too are essentially just energy moving at a rapid pace, and that energy has a vibrational frequency.
Perhaps you’ve never thought about your frequency before, but it impacts every aspect of your life. You create your own reality, and like attracts like. By the law of attraction, you magnetize or repel all experiences, people and circumstances into your life, even ones that appear to be coincidental or accidental in nature. Similar to radio waves that are heard clearly but remain unseen, your vibrational frequency emanates from your cumulative thoughts, emotions and consciousness, and is continually being broadcast out into the universe. This broadcast then attracts similar experiences, people and opportunities, good or bad. A high oscillating vibration attracts more high frequency, spiritually uplifting, or “positive” experiences in life. A low vibration attracts the opposite.
To determine your frequency, it’s simple: pay close attention to your feelings. When you hold positive thoughts in your heart and mind, you feel happy, inspired and content; when you hold negative thoughts, grouchy, angry or sad. The better you feel, the higher your frequency will be; the worse, the lower.
As the creator of your life, the good news is you have the power to change your frequency at any moment. Even something as simple as laughing (laughter is the best medicine) or being creative can get the positive juices flowing. Alternatively, what you don’t do can also have a dramatic impact on your energy field. For example, abstaining from known stimulants or depressants like caffeine, refined sugar, alcohol and drugs (which produce short-term euphoria, but always end in a crash) will keep you out of the doldrums. Here are a few other ways to raise your vibration:
According to countless studies, including one conducted by a Harvard Med School team led by Sara Lazar, PhD, the practice of meditation permanently strengthens the most evolved portion of the human brain – the frontal lobe – which is linked to increased abstract thought, cognitive reasoning, creativity and positivity. It also triggers the brain to release naturally occurring neurotransmitters, including dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin and endorphins, which are linked to different aspects of happiness from simple pleasure to a deep sense of calm. Regardless of your religious orientation or which method you choose to meditate, sitting still for even five minutes a day can help you clear the mind, confront and minimize negative conscious and unconscious thinking patterns and connect to the divine space within that transcends thoughts, feeling and circumstance. Over time, this practice will raise your energetic frequency and contribute to a happier, more uplifted experience of yourself, others and the world at large.
Unplug from the Matrix:
Although computers, smart phones and ipads are great for staying connected in the information age, all electronic devices emit subtle, invisible electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) that can negatively impact your energy field and drain spiritual life force. To limit your exposure, use these devices for no more than two hours at a time before taking a break. At night before going to sleep, turn off all wi-fi equipment and unplug the router to prevent interference with your circadian rhythm, which can cause you to awaken less rested. If breaking with technology even for a few hours a day seems difficult, start small with a tech detox one hour a day, then just after work hours, and eventually work yourself up to one tech-free day per week.
Ever heard of people who get their best ideas in the shower? That’s because cleansing helps wash away unseen energy patterns from the body’s aura (including those picked up from others and accumulated throughout the day), making room for new creative thoughts and positive energies that are always seeking to guide us. If you’re a bather, just a twenty minute soak in healing Epsom or Celtic Sea salts can help detoxify your astral energy field, invigorate your chakras, and soothe aching muscles. Where possible, use natural, organic soap free of toxins, artificial chemicals and fragrances (which weaken the aura). In a pinch, just washing your face and hands can help freshen your perspective. For extra energy cleansing, try the Native American ritual of smudging with sage, cedar, lavender or sweetgrass. You can smudge yourself or another person, as well as objects, rooms and even an entire house!
Spend Time with Positive People:
It’s been said that you become the sum of the five people you spend the most time with, so take a good look at your social circle and make sure it’s elevating, not suppressing, your vibrational frequency. Not sure if those around you are friends or frenemies? Take a look at how you feel and how you behave when you’re with them. Are you your most authentic, empowered self, or do you put on a mask that disguises or demeans who you truly are? After spending time with the friend or group in question, do you feel uplifted, empowered, and content? Or drained, angry, and depressed? Be honest, even if it means breaking with tradition and switching up your social circles. Your spiritual health depends upon it.
