[VIDEO] How to Raise Your Vibration

Image by eyeamlivingproof.com

“Consciousness and vibrational frequency go hand in hand. When you’re in a low frequency, you’re in a decreased state of consciousness and your perception is limited. When you’re in a high frequency, you’re in an increased state of consciousness and your perception is heightened.

The lower your vibrational frequency, the less you are able to comprehend because your ego is restricting the Flow of Life Force/source Energy and Intuition/Love through your mind and body. The higher your vibrational frequency, the more you are able to comprehend because you are allowing a greater Flow of Life Force through your mind and body.

In video below, Teal Swan explains that raising your frequency means moving to a better feeling, a more positive emotion. She also explains that the trump card of all things that raise frequency is focus… nothing is more important than the thoughts you are thinking and whatever you’re paying attention to/focusing on. You can not focus on things that cause you to feel bad, and hold a high vibration.

Teal then goes on to describe eleven steps that you can take to increase your frequency.” Watch and learn!

The Emotional Guidance Scale (and How to Climb It)

What is the Emotional Guidance Scale?

The Emotional Guidance Scale, as explained by Abraham Hicks in the book “Ask and It Is Given,” is a scale of our feelings and emotions, in sequence from our highest vibrational feelings to our lowest. It is broken down into 22 of the most common emotions and divided into two sections: the upwards spiral and the downwards spiral:

Upward Spiral:

1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowered/Freedom/Love
2 . Passion
3 . Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
4 . Positive Expectation/Belief
5 . Optimism
6 . Hopefulness
7 . Contentment

Downward Spiral

8 . Boredom
9 . Pessimism
10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
11. Overwhelment
12. Disappointment
13. Doubt
14. Worry
15. Blame
16. Discouragement
17. Anger
18. Revenge
19. Hatred/Rage
20. Jealousy
21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
22. Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

All too often when we are feeling down, we’re told things like “think positively” or “chin up”, but in reality the jump from such a low vibrational space to such a high one is usually impossible. What the emotional guidance scale teaches us is that there are many different emotional steps along the way to true joy, and that our only real job is to climb this ladder of emotions at whatever rate or speed we are comfortable with. It’s about doing what you can, with what you have, from where you are.

Thoughts Affect Emotions

Our thoughts affect our emotions and therefore it is only through thoughts that we are able to climb the emotional scale. The first and most critical step is to become aware of where you currently are on the scale and then consciously reach for a thought that can take you a little higher.

For example, when you are in a state of grief or depression (#22 on the emotional scale), getting angry (#17) might not seem very “enlightened” or “positive” but it is actually a huge improvement from where you started. By allowing yourself to get angry (and thinking thoughts that express that anger) you have already climbed several steps and improved your vibration.

Boredom (#8 on the scale) is another interesting example. As shown in the image above, its placement is pivotal – it is right in the middle of the two spirals, meaning that the thoughts you choose from that point on can either spin you off into a downwards spiral, or help you climb out of the downwards one into the upwards one.

How to Think Your Way Up the Scale

Blogger, Maria Erving, gives a simple example of how to consciously choose thoughts and words that will help climb the scale at your own pace. In her words:

Let’s say you feel “disappointed” (#12) with someone. You are disappointed that he’s never on time for your get-togethers, he’s always late, and you feel disappointed, even a bit sad. Now would be a good time to see if you can invoke feelings of “irritation”(#10) within yourself by speaking/thinking: “It makes me really sad and disappointed that he’s always late. I feel that he’s not respecting me… wtf! It is sooo irritating that he thinks that I’m going to wait for him one more minute! I’ve had it with this behavior!”

Noticed how your emotion improved? (you went from #12 to #10)

Now, go even higher up:

“You know what? (still talking/thinking to yourself), I don’t care anymore. I’m leaving and he can just come and wait for me this time. I’m going shopping instead. I’m perfectly fine with that”. (feeling “contentment” (#7) and perhaps a bit empowered, too (#1)

From there you just keep finding thoughts that improve your feelings, and when you find a new, improved state of mind, you let go of the old one!

“The spiritually enlightened person still experiences the full range of emotion, so what they have gained is the awareness and the ability to direct their thoughts in such a way that they can climb up the emotional scale at will.”
– Teal Swan

The Symptoms of Hibernating / Anais Nin Quote

hibernation anais nin

anais
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death.
Some never awaken. They are like the people who go to sleep in the snow and never awaken.”
– Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

10 Instant Emotional Fitness Tools

10 Instant Emotional Fitness Tools

When things get out of control and you momentarily lose your emotional balance, there are any number of little things you can do to regain it. Here are ten tools to help get you started.

By Barton Goldsmith, Ph.D.
Originally published on Psychology Today

1. Wash your hands and face and brush your teeth. It cools and cleans the parts of your body that you use most frequently, which is relaxing, and gives you that “fresh start” feeling.

Wash your hands and face and brush your teeth.

2. Put on clean socks and some shoes that you haven’t worn in a few days. Shoes take a day or two to release any moisture they have absorbed, and this is a very easy way to put a little pep back into your step.

Put on clean socks and some shoes that you haven't worn in a few days.

3. Give yourself a good shave (face or legs). This is another instant refresher. Especially if you have sensitive skin or the weather is dry. Plus, when we know we are looking our best, we naturally feel better.

Give yourself a good shave (face or legs).

4. Look at any trophy, diploma, or certificate of achievement that you have earned. And if it isn’t framed and on the wall, frame it now. These are reminders of your accomplishments, and taking in your success is important to maintaining your self-esteem.

Look at any trophy, diploma, or certificate of achievement that you have earned.

5. Remember your last (or greatest) success and think about it for sixty seconds. Taking in your success as often as possible will help you reach another and another. Quite simply, it reminds you that if you’ve done it before, you can do it again.

Remember your last (or greatest) success and think about it for sixty seconds.

6. Know you are the person your loved ones think you are. And yes, that goes for your dog too. Knowing that you are unconditionally loved can’t help but make you feel good about yourself. It’s so easy to beat yourself up, I recommend pulling yourself up instead.

Know you are the person your loved ones think you are.

7. Wash your car, inside and out. Hey, when our wheels are shiny, we feel better. If you don’t think this applies to you, just remember how you felt the last time you got a ride in someone’s very funky car. Race you to the car wash.

7. Wash your car, inside and out.

8. Old clothes may come back into style, but you really don’t want them on hangers for the next twenty years. Throwing out the old makes room for the new. For some, the feeling they get from putting on a new “power suit” fills them with pride.

Organize your closet and get rid of anything that no longer fits.

9. Cook a lovely meal. Even if you are by yourself, preparing a tasty dinner, setting the table, and treating yourself to a wonderful culinary experience will lift your spirits. Sharing it with someone you love and/or respect will make it even more nurturing.

Cook a lovely meal.

10. Look around you, remember that you started with nothing, and know that everything you see, you created. We can all lose our feelings of self-worth, especially when something goes wrong in our world. The truth is that if you have done it before, you can do it again – no matter what.

Look around you

None of these tasks has to be uncomfortable or take you much time. Finding ways to give yourself a little boost when you’re not feeling like you’re at the top of your game is a trick that truly happy people use on a regular basis.
