Your vibration is the energy that your mind (moon sign) and body (ascendant sign) gives off during the day. Your mood determines your vibration. When you are sad or fearful, your vibration will be low.
A high vibration is achieved when you are happy or at peace. This shifts several times between the hours you wake up and before you go to bed. Below are nine ways to raise your vibration.
Sing, Dance & Listen to Music
Music is layered with vocals, instruments and rhythms that creates mood. Listening to, singing along, and dancing to music is an active and fun way to raise your vibration. It’s grounding and releases nervous energy. Listen to salsa or reggae to create excitement; jazz, classical, or ambient to be at peace. Sing children’s songs or make up one of your own.
Affirmations are short, positive statements that affirm your heart’s desires. They are done in the present tense. Repeating them aloud or in your mind redirects low vibrational thoughts. Here are a few to get you started.
- I am enjoying my day.
- I am happy, healthy, and wealthy.
- I have everything I need.
- I am loved.
- The Universe supports me and showers me with abundance.
Meditate & Be Mindful
Meditation is a practice that shifts your consciousness. The side effects of meditation include sharper focus, deeper concentration, reduced stress, and a happier mood. Mindfulness, or awareness, is paying close attention to your mood as life changes. It increases each time you meditate and helps you determine what you prefer to consume.
Breath meditation is the simplest practice by focusing on the coolness of the in-breathe and warmth of the out-breath, which can be done for 30 seconds or five minutes.
Being creative gets you out of your head. Go back to your childhood and express your infinite imagination. Grab a pencil or pen and doodle, make triangles, circles, or squiggly lines. Paint, play with clay, or do photography.
Eat a Plant-Based Diet
Food that is closer to its raw state holds a high vibration. Fresh fruit and vegetables are the primary sources that are packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Paired with beans, nuts, seeds, and gluten-free cereal grains (quinoa, amaranth, and teff) round out a healthy plant- based diet. Your body will release toxins resulting in regular digestion and a happy disposition.
Drink Water & Herbal Infusions
Depending on age, your body is 55 – 75% water. Water and herbal teas flush the system much like plant- based foods and keeps the body hydrated. Herbal teas are made with fruit and herbs that nourish organs, blood, and skin with vitamins and minerals.
Spend Time Outdoors
The ground is a living organ. It grows food from seed and can replenish itself. This energy is in trees, grass, and flowers. It’s also in plant-based food. If your vibration is low, tend to houseplants, work in the garden, or go for walks in a park or the woods. Moving water such as oceans, rivers, and waterfalls are also high vibrational. Standing near them removes low vibrational energy from your body.
Disconnect From Media & Electronics
Turn off the radio, television, computer, tablet, and phone. Remove them from your bedroom. They give off waves of energy that disrupt your natural rhythm. The media rarely, if at all, reports on high vibrational events. Unplug three hours before going to bed or go on a media and electronics detox for a day or the entire weekend.
Communicate With Your Angels & Spirit Guides
Your guardian angels and spirit guides are always with you. You can talk to them aloud or silently. Ask them to help you raise your vibration. Pay attention to repetitive thoughts, feelings, and ideas. They are messages to help you feel better.
Take time to raise your vibration. Your mood will improve immediately, resulting in a balanced life and increased happiness.
