When you raise your vibration, you seem to attract people and situations that are meant for you, and let go of negativity. People who raise their vibration usually become healthier and more attractive, and have more vitality as well.
Some things are meant to be understood. Some things are hard to understand, because they are meant to be felt.
When it comes to raising your vibration, it helps to think of it in terms of feelings rather than changes in the tangible world.
Think of joy, enthusiasm, confidence, and relaxation. Being lighter than air. Being on top of the world. That’s a hint.
In today’s post I’ll try to explain what it means to raise your vibration, and what happens when you do.
At the end of the post you’ll also find links to other articles and resources to help you raise your vibration.
What does it mean to raise your vibration?
When people talk about raising one’s vibration, they usually refer to spirituality — one’s spiritual vibration, or energy.
When you raise your vibration, you raise your energy, your state of being. In turn, this affects your feelings, emotions, and outlook in life — your dimension.
Now, science does actually state that everything in our universe vibrates and resonates. Everything, including people and objects.
Our body vibrates at a certain frequency. Our thoughts vibrate at various frequencies. And so on.
But in order to understand the concept of raising one’s vibration, don’t look at the material world — think of spirituality instead.
Or, think of vibrations as a metaphor for… who you are. Your mood, your attitude. The way you talk. The way you walk. What you like and dislike. What you attract and reject.
There are various types of alternative therapies that can raise your vibration. One of them is the use of flower essences.
The idea is that by taking an essence, the frequency (or vibrational state) of the flower, or combination of flowers, then flows through your body, and helps you heal mentally and/or physically.
For example, if you happen to be chronically indecisive, a certain flower essence (which contains a certain vibration) may help you become more spontaneous and take life less seriously.
If you suffer from anger issues or struggle to control some of your negative feelings, a certain flower essence may help you become naturally calmer, and stop overreacting to everything.
Sounds ridiculous. But… it works. It really does (this has been my experience, and the experience of many people I know personally).
And I think it’s an excellent example of what vibrational energy is.
Scientifically, there is still no clear explanation as to why or how flower essences, or reiki, or crystal therapy can heal one’s body or mind.
But the standard explanation is that the flower’s vibrational energy is transferred to yours, and that helps you raise your vibration.
What happens when you raise your vibration?
1. The world changes
First and foremost: when we shift to a higher, more powerful vibrational state, things change. Because we change.
If you think we all live in the same world, in the same dimension, you are making a fundamental mistake, and it’s a mistake that could cost you happiness. And freedom.
Who we are — our vibration — affects everything around us.
Lower your vibration, and the world around you turns into a miserable place. Raise your vibration, and life smiles at you.
Obviously, you don’t have the power to change everything around you. You’ll never be omnipotent, no matter how high your vibration may be.
What I’m saying is, your inner world tends to shape the outer world in ways you probably can’t even imagine.
2. You attract good luck
The second magical thing that happens when you raise your vibration is that you seem to become luckier all of a sudden.
You seem to finally attract the opportunities you had been looking for. You often feel that you are “in the right place at the right time”.
Why? Because a higher vibration is nothing but a vibration that’s right for you. The universe, God, or whatever you believe in, wants you to be the best version of yourself.
The worst version of yourself, the one that vibrates at a lower frequency, creates and attracts a lot of confusion.
The best version of yourself, the one that vibrates at a very high frequency, creates and attracts what’s right for you.
The people you’re supposed to meet, the places you’re supposed to be in, the lessons you’re supposed to learn. Once you raise your vibration, things seem to just work out for you.
3. You have more energy
If you’ve even gone through a phase where there was too much stress, anxiety, fear, or any other negative state in your life, then it probably led to low energy.
When I used to suffer from mental health issues or was trying to live a life that was not meant for me (e.g. a toxic job), I seemed to lack the energy and enthusiasm to do anything.
That’s the result of a low vibration — negative energy, a negative state of mind.
When your vibration is low, your energy is blocked. When you raise your vibration, positive energy flows freely, and is abundant.
When you raise your vibration, you no longer feel tired all the time. You no longer need “motivation” to do things — you become the motivation as you have more vitality, more energy.
4. You become healthier
To describe what a higher vibration feels like, some therapists or “energy experts” often describe it as a feeling of being lighter.
You feel lighter mentally, as your limiting beliefs, fears, and unhelpful thoughts gradually go away. But you can also feel lighter physically.
Guess what also makes you feel lighter physically — a better diet, exercise, an optimal level of hydration. Basically, being healthier.
Once you reach a higher vibration, your physical health will reflect that because you’ll naturally tend to avoid things/habits that are harmful. Think of smoking, inactivity, or junk food.
Just like it will become easier to nourish the soul, it’ll become easier to nourish the body, as well.
5. You are more attractive
Someone with a high vibrational energy will also have inner beauty — confidence, enthusiasm, joy — and that’s going to make them more attractive.
Not necessarily to everyone. But definitely to those who resonate with you, those who have a high vibration as well.
Moreover, a lower level of stress, a more relaxed state, naturally leads to beauty.
For example: stress, anxiety, or bad intentions create facial expressions that look ugly. Think of an evil grin; think of the facial expression of contempt, which is asymmetrical.
By contrast, think of a meditating Buddha (a statue or illustration). That’s the perfect example of a state of relaxation, of letting go. Which creates beauty.
6. You say no more often
When you raise your vibration, you start to believe in yourself. You no longer need other people’s approval to feel good about yourself.
You also get clear on your priorities, or your purpose in life, if you have one.
Naturally, this makes you say no a lot more often. Because you simply can’t afford to spend time with negative people, people who have a much lower vibration.
When two different vibrations are next to each other, there is tension. People with a lower vibration will tend to drain your energy.
Similarly, once you raise your vibration, your energy may be drained by all those things that used to be right for you, but that no longer serve you, that no longer belong to you.
7. Negativity disappears
Darkness itself doesn’t really exist: it’s nothing but the absence of light. It’s a negative, not a positive.
If someone says “don’t give in to darkness”, what they actually mean is: don’t allow any type of spiritual parasite to steal your light, your vital energy.
Another thing you’ll notice once you reach a higher vibration is that you’ll seem to be virtually immune to negativity.
Whether it’s negative people, negative thoughts, the wrong type of information, bad habits, unfortunate events, and so on.
Most of the time, we create these things. And then there are times where they happen to us. But even when they do happen, we can choose how to react.
Someone with a higher vibration has to deal with negativity just like anybody else, but their energy allows them to deal with it efficiently.
