Raising Your Vibe. Good Vibrations.
5 Great Ways to Raise Your Good Vibration
It’s not a new concept. Way back in the dark ages of the 70’s, my attorney cousin from LA talked about Vibes! Ellen was the happiest, kindest, and least likely to fall into the darkness of anyone I’ve ever met. She was just that happy lady who wanted to help people. She’s the first person whom I heard this from decades ago. I thought it was an LA thing.
The positivity movement has resurged. When people talk about Raising Your Vibration they are simply saying get those Good Vibrations humming along. It’s not just pollyanna positive, and not just a law of attraction theory. It’s the way to build happiness and attract good – lots of good. Some people masterfully raise their vibrations.. others use it to do harm and don’t even know it.
We all want to feel vibrant, happy, healthy, and positive. Right? We know unconsciously that the way to do that is to combine several techniques.
I’m going to share the good, the bad, and the iffy. And I’m going to post links to some of the books that make a difference. There is a lot of whack out there. And I’ll reinforce the good and help you avoid the whack.
How do we ensure we are amping up our vibrations? How is easy. Why is the question? And when you learn these simple tricks, you can master your good vibrations.
Why do we even care?
Well, we care because we want to protect ourselves from negative energy. Failing to do so ultimately harms our internal boundaries – the ones that we don’t consciously think about. These are the ones that snag on little entrails of other people’s emotional claws. In the book Energetic Boundaries, the concept becomes clear. We must heal our energy boundaries in order to become free of the entanglements and unwanted hooks others put upon us — things that we accepted at some point are no longer working.
INVISIBLE POWER POSITIONS
We do this in 5 key ways. We make conscious what previously was an unconscious action. We learn to listen to our inner stillness. We come to know. We ask ourselves and listen for the answers. We know intuitively what to do if we turn in.
1: Foods – Eating for what you want – a high vibration, means eating foods that lighten and uplift you. Not diet foods, but foods that reach for the sky. Superfoods. Nutrient Dense, Colorful, high fiber, lower carb, and no sugar, no fake foods. Sure we want to indulge, but when you do the 9010 program of eating, you naturally raise your body to a higher vibration. Eating better attracts all kinds of good. You know this. You know that when you clean up your diet, cut out the low fiber, no nutrient white foods, you feel lighter. You know that by simply cutting out heavy fatty foods you suddenly feel more energized. And you know that when you get rid of the sugary stuff, you have a steadier energy flow all day long.
A powerful book I picked up while in nutrition school crystallized my belief that food energy is not just the nutrients but how the food source was nurtured, raised, and processed. Steve Gagner goes into it deeply in his book, Food Energetics.
2: Activities – This one is simple. The more you move, the more energy you have. The more energy you feel, the more you do. This is step one in raising your vibrations. Good vibrations hum about you and other people feel it. You feel better. They feel good about you. That’s good vibrations. And balancing this with calm is so important. I know. I can be absolutely energized to the point I walk in a room and heads turn. I’m not doing anything but feeling good and happy. What they feel is an energetic pull. It frightens some. I eventually learned to find a balance. In part, seeking your tribe of movers helps with this one. It’s hard to maintain that high activity vibe when your friends want to sit and smoke and feast on crap food. So seek out your tribal dancers and get up offa that thang. yeah, James Brown had it going on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_uNMy20qAI
3: Powerful Choices – Ok this is tricky. Choices make the difference. Do you feel down some days? Feel hopeless, unworthy, unloved? Do you dwell on the past? Do you find yourself remorseful? I wasted far too much time grieving for what was never to be. I wanted what I couldn’t have and it was out of my control. But I loved them so much, I kept trying to figure out what I did that was so wrong — and there was nothing! CHOICES — POWERFUL CHOICES are the turning points. And when you CHOOSE POWERFULLY — you infuse yourself with a higher vibrational tuning.
4: Attentions – what you resist persists. Please give yourself a break. If you are constantly fighting something that keeps showing up in your conscience, address it. Don’t hide.There is a message there. But don’t obsess either. What you pour your attention on is what you bring to you. For example, when you focus on what you want – a job, a man, a new car — everything you see is filtered by that want. So when you focus on what you don’t want, that also becomes what you see. I’m all for attending to stuff, and not ignoring the stinking thinking. It comes from somewhere, so it’s good to root it out. If you kill the top flower of a week, the root keeps growing. So while tending the garden of you, you have to keep an eye on the results you want and be willing to get rid of what you don’t. When you pull out the roots, they no longer grow. That’s freedom!
5: Intentions – Be clear here. What you intend must be aligned with you. You must find the way to hold your intentions in your heart-center, and know that while some things take time, all things are available when we are aligned with our intentions. My intention right now is to reset, to restart, to find the answer to How Can I Retire and Make a LOT of Money with much less effort? That’s where I am. I’m intending to find solutions. The Intention Experiment is a juicy look into setting your intentions clearly. And many thanks to my friend, Mark Andersen for sending this to me. Such a nice gift from a good friend.
This morning, as I again revised a resume to pitch to another employer how great I think I am, I ran into an audio on Monster.com. It’s not just another how to make money book pitch. It’s a lady who shares how she constantly struggled and then ultimately reclaimed her right to win and be bold.
Right there on Monster was a talk and an idea: Believe in your self. Be a Bad Ass. You are a Badass. So be one with it. And quickly, I picked up two books:
Why is any of this important? Why can’t we just go through life, living it on life’s terms? Why does intentionally raising our vibration even matter? Well, it matters because if you become the one people dump their story on when they are down but they run away when you are down, you are somehow letting them steal your energy. It became essential to me to re-establish and heal energetic boundaries. And then I had to reclaim my intentions. If you are a sensitive, an empath, a healer or even a caregiver, you know some of this. You just do. Turn inward, tap in, and see if it resonates.
It’s not that I want to start completely over. If I did, I’d be throwing away what I hold near and dear. ME. The ME I worked so hard to cultivate. The ME that had to accept what is in order to create what would be the new me. Failure wasn’t the issue. Rejection by loved ones was. I had to fight back from nothing into something and that included restoring the real me. The challenge is to maintain good vibrations while I swim through the challenging upstream of relaunching. The hard part is the rocks and boulders I encounter, and the easy part is to keep focusing on raising my good vibrations so that I bump up against but don’t bruise me.
That’s why I know. I know how hard it can be. I know that when CS called me and said: “You just aren’t happy enough for me. I’m letting you go” It wasn’t about me. And it still hurt. I hadn’t hired her. I said something she took wrong. And she judged me. Fine enough. For I know this was the same woman who cried rivers on my shoulder about her crappy family stuff. I knew too that there was some truth to it for life was giving me a lesson and I’d not found the solutions yet. Beware the trolls! They sneak up on you, say something, and you have to be strong enough to take what you like and leave the rest. Or leave it all. 🙂
The IFFY STUFF:
And that’s where the iffy stuff comes in. You can raise your good vibrations on your own. You don’t need a guru. You can get those Good Vibrations in so many ways. There is so much on this planet for us. But we must watch out for self-proclaimed guru’s who take our money while building their dreams of false lies and misperceptions. It’s sometimes cult like attractions.
I just tested this out. I have a lot of knowledge and experience. But someone offered a cheap online coaching thing that sounded fun. Lady offered dirt cheap coaching in a group. I may have been seeking synergy and friends, but after 45 days of so called online coaching, I knew they were not of my tribe. The pattern was clear. On day 40 she stopped doing her daily stuff and was promoting gently her next class – which of course was 3 x the price. The promise is an intangible feel good storyline and the offer is I can help you blah blah blah. If you accept, you pay to play, she tells you what she thinks, and you either get what you came for or you don’t. The results don’t last long so the coach hopes you go back for more.
“I hurt – they say they have answers – I feel better for a minute – then they are asking for more and more money – I’m not so sure anymore – one more class — then another – then wtf am I doing here!@”
Yeah — be your own guru. And if you want some help learning to do that, of course, I can help you. I’m not a guru. I’m not a saint. And a lot of self-proclaimed guru’s get really angry at me when I dare to share what I know. I’m not a threat to them, but they feel something challenging about me. It must be because I teach my clients and myself to tap into their own inner wisdom.
