21 Ways to Raise Your Vibration

According to the numerous wisdom teachings, Lao Tzu, Edison, Gregg Braden, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, the Buddha, Ken Wilber, Louis Hay, the Dalai Lama, Paramahansa Yogananda, Dr. Wayne Dyer, and a thousand other experts, both ancient and modern, our inner world affects the outer world. This is the great secret that every other culture knows except the West – Egypt, Bolivia, Tibet, Polynesia, China, Japan, Peru, villages in the Andes mountains, etc. – until now.

Our past scientific assumptions have been erroneous more than once. The first wrong assumption is that the space around us is empty. It isn’t. It is full of a living essence, which we are just beginning to understand. This essence is like a conduit that is affected by our thoughts. Nuns and Monks know this. That is what they use prayer and meditation for. It charges thought to interact with this essence. We call it miracles, but it is getting in touch with this conduit – this empty space, which carries our mental frequencies out into the field of possibility. The second wrong assumption is that our external circumstances just happen. They don’t. We create them. Like oscillations of a bowed string, the notes we play do matter.

You’ve been hearing it everywhere. Your vibration, or the pattern of your thoughts, attitudes and actions, is what creates your reality. If you want to change what you experience then you need to change your vibration. There are a million ways to do this but here are just a few:

  • There is a learning curve. You can’t give up the first time you try to change your thoughts, and thus your vibration. You have to practice it – over and over again. So take out a journal and write your new thoughts – the ones which reflect your experiences as you would like to see them happen, not necessarily that which your current vibration is creating. There are thousands of neurons, which are recruited to physically write down a thought, instead of just typing it into a computer screen.
  • Find something of beauty and just appreciate it. It can be a flower growing from a crack in the sidewalk. It can be the glint in a lover’s eyes. It can be your child’s smile, or a newly organized shelf of books. Just one thing. That’s all you need.
  • Make a list of all that you are grateful for. The reason gratitude journals and thankfulness lists work is because, just like cognitive behavioral training, you can make neuro-pharmacalogical and neuro-biological changes with a shift in your focus on gratitude. Start with a few things: I can take a breath. I am here, now. I have at least one friend. I am able to change myself with my own will. Then expand to make your list your own.
  • Meditate. Think of nothing. This is more than likely a more neutral and therefore more positive place to take your vibration.
  • Do something for someone else. Giving to someone else shifts your thinking from “I don’t have enough, to I have more than enough to give to others.” Abundance is a high vibration.
  • Listen to music you love. Music shifts your frequency by making you happy.
  • Stop complaining and gossiping. Are the things you are talking about bringing you more of what you want? Stop complaining, and start finding ways to rejoice.
  • Move. Exercise. Get active. Dance! Not only does movement change your perspective, it also creates endorphins which help you to feel happy. The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating at a different frequency.
  • Do something a little crazyHave you always wanted to go sky-diving? How about learning to dance? Have you always wanted to try public speaking – find an open mic night and go for it. You probably feel like you have nothing to lose – so dive right in. Just doing something new rewires your brain.
  • Listen to the ancient chants from Buddhist and Gregorian monks. They are designed to shift your frequency.
  • Not sure where you are vibrating? Just check in. How do you feel right now? Just observe it and then you can change it. Perception starts with awareness.
  • Do mental reps. Say to yourself 100 times a day. I am happy or I am prosperous, or I am unafraid of change. You may not believe it yet, but with practice you will. Your 100 repetitions could just be, I can change my mind.
  • Realize that you have more control over your life than you thought. You are not a victim to circumstance, past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can change your life in an instant. Just realize this. In many wisdom traditions this is called “total responsibility.” No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It isn’t a curse. It’s a blessing because it gives you your power back.
  • Breathe. Just sit and try to make your breath longer, fuller, and more relaxed. It has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration.
  • Drink energy charged water. Dr. Masaru Emoto made this practice mainstream with his pictures in Messages from water. But it is also a practice from Chinese healers from ancient lineages. You can hold your water with the thumbs and middle fingers touching on either side of the bottle (heart Mudra) and send the water love. Then drink it.
  • Practice Mudra. Mudras are ancient hand gestures that redirect energy, or prana, back into the body in much the same way that light is refracted/reflected from a cliff face or glacial wall. By learning specific ways in which to hold your fingers, you can direct positive energy into your body.
  • Jump up and down. It is said that the simple action of jumping excites the cells in the body and makes them healthier. Have some fun on a trampoline.
  • Practice Ho’oponopono. The ancient Hawaiians believed that sadness, depression and dis-ease only occurred when we perceived ourselves as separate from the Oneness, the Divine. One of the practice’s main themes is forgiveness. Forgive yourself or someone else and raise your vibration.
  • Hug someone. The American Psychosomatic Society published a study saying that just 10 minutes of positive physical contact with another human being can greatly reduce stress. Vibration. . .raised.  

7 Meditation & Mindfulness Practices for a Busy Life

1. In the Shower

meditation-shower-bath-waterfallWhenever you take a bath or a shower use this time to cleanse your energy.  Take some deep breaths and visualise the water washing all of the stress and negative energy away.  This can be a powerful technique for balancing your chakras and feeling great.  Practice slowing down your breathing and feel the amazing power of the water.

If you have seen our spirit science video on water maybe you can also practice sending love energy to the water or put healing crystals near the faucet so that the water coming through your house is cleaned energetically too.

2. Tea & Drinks

If you drink any sort of herbal or natural beverage try slowing down.  Take the time to savor the many smells and flavors of the drink.  Take the time to breathe slowly, reflect, meditate and really be aware of that moment in your life.  Visualise the healing that comes when you fill your body with good healthy fluids.

3. Eating with Awareness

eat-more-slowly_OMTimes_bigstock-Portrait-of-a-fit-healthy-hisp-32284502Each little flavor, color and smell is a whole new adventure.  Slow down and see if you can identify all of the ingredients.  Observe the impulse to eat specific foods and the impulse to eat fast.  Slow down your mind and ask yourself why you feel those things.

Imagine the healing effects that your food will have on your body.  Are you giving your body what it needs to feel whole, stay healthy and thrive?  Observe the taking in of energy.  This food is the basics that feed your body, mind and soul.

4. Waiting in Line

200330172-002-e13498986618431Waiting anywhere can be a great place to begin meditating.  Slow everything down in your mind.  Observe the people or objects around you.  Take in the beauty and observe your feelings.

If you are safe to do so, close your eyes half way and take a deep breathe.  Go inside yourself mentally and focus on your breathing.  Observe the amazing chemical exchange going on inside your lungs with each breath.  Oxygen to carbon dioxide over and over.

5. While Walking

walking-in-fallWalking can be a similar meditation to waiting in line.  It can also be a good tool for people who struggle to sit still.  When your body is distracted with the movement of walking, get your breathing in a good rhythm with your feet and clear your mind.

Recognise that everything in your path is there for a reason.  If they weren’t supposed to be there they would have come earlier or left later.  Those people are there in that moment on purpose.  Take the time to smile, send loving energy to others and even strike up a conversation with someone.

6. Stretching or Exercising

stretch-at-officeIf you have a Yoga, Stretching or Exercising practice every day this is the perfect time to meditate.  Let your body do its thing while you practice your deep breathing, slowing down your mind and observing the world around you.

If you don’t have a regular practice take some time to at least stretch each day.  You can do this while waiting for your morning coffee to brew, while waiting for your ride to come for work or while watching a movie at home.  There are many times where we can stretch and keep our body loose and receptive while also practicing meditation.

7. Before Sleeping & Help Sleeping

o-MEDITATION-facebookEach night before bed, take a few minutes to take some deep breaths and clear your mind.  This is a good time for a quick meditation about your day and your plans for life.  Look at all of the patterns from your day and ask yourself what they mean on a big scale in your life.  If you aren’t ready to go to sleep keep your eyes cracked open just a little so that you do not drift off.

When you are ready to sleep you can also use the relaxation techniques from meditation to help you rest easier.  If you are anything like me you might have troubles sleeping because you are over analysing your day and stressing about tomorrow.

The Secret to Having Confidence

Body language can dramatically change how we feel and how we interact with others. Scientific studies show how you can dramatically change your life with some small changes.

“Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.”-TED

How To: Change Your Karma

Source: http://thespiritscience.net/2014/11/22/how-to-change-your-karma/

Karma is attached to our EGO.  That means that Karma is only something we deal with in the lower levels of consciousness.  The higher levels all the way back to source and creation are not limited by the rules of Karma.

When we are in a deep state of meditation you can access these higher levels of consciousness and change your Karma if you wanted to.  Often though when we see the grand picture of our lives we actually find that we don’t want to change it because we recognize the value of experience and cleaning up our own vibrational mistakes.

How can we change it from our current state of consciousness?

There are two main ways to change our Karma here on earth.  One is through genuine love energy meditations and the other is through consistent good actions.

1. Love Meditation

When you are in meditation focus on sending love to everyone and everything in existence.  This Love has to come from a genuine space of giving with no thought of receiving.  On the highest soul levels there is no difference between you and everything else so you are actually never going without.

2. Good Actions

With a deep genuine spirit of giving you can make a lot of powerful waves for your life and the lives of those around you.  As long as we are always giving with the intent of loving others then when it ripples back to us we will receive genuine love.

Though we know that we will receive the fruits of our labor down the road we cannot have that be the motivation in why we are doing good.  Imagine how it feels to receive a gift with an expectation to give something else back.  It almost feels like a hook or an obligation.  Wouldn’t you rather receive pure love?  That is why we must always give with a loving intent.

How to know if you’re in a Spiritual Partnership

Source: http://thespiritscience.net/2014/08/01/how-to-know-if-youre-in-a-spiritual-partnership/

In order to know if you’re in a spiritual partnership and how to cultivate it to bring more unity and union to the connection you have with your partner, we first must understand what a Spiritual Partnership is.

Very simply, it is a partnership that is condusive to the growth of both individuals. It is a partnership where honesty and growth are priority over just making each other feel nice. Everyone – it doesn’t matter who you are – will eventually get frustrated with each other when they are in a contained environment for a long period of time. It’s almost impossible not to, and that’s okay! The magic comes in when those individuals will stick around to clean up the mess, to listen to each other, and to create their connection even deeper than it was before.

The connection that goes deeper and deeper and deeper, and grows and the individuals grow both individually and together.. THAT is a creationship!

But beyond that… Spiritual Partnerships are about the feeling. The way that you feel when you’re in their presence, and the connection that you have simply radiates between each other with awareness. You begin to know what each other are thinking and feeling, and so there’s more deeper communication happening between the two of you because you’re communicating on a frequency that is beyond words. It is mental, it is emotional, and it is full of Knowing.

I invite you to watch this video. It is simply beautiful, and stands as a testament to what someone can create when they are full of passion about what they love doing, and who they love doing it with.

Now, before I end this post I just have 1 quick thing I want to share with you… And this is the light at the end of the tunnel for all of you who might be feeling right now like the relationship you have isn’t the one you’re meant to have.

What you have right now in this moment is perfect, beautiful, and can become everything that you want it to be. It simply takes some effort, some communication, and a whole lotta’ love!

With love,
Jordan

In truth, these are crazy days. You don’t know what to expect next. It is easy to get off balance. Do what supports your balance. Use your intuition. Trust your gut instincts. Love you more than the need for approval. Strengthen your boundaries. Do not walk away from yourself. Accept the real you. Don’t hide your light. Shine your light. Love you more than the need for others to support you. You support you. Goddess will support you. God has unlimited abundance. What you need is inside of you. Go to Goddess for your abundance. Accept who you are. Accept other people for who they are. Merge with your Soul Self and you will be successful. Be creative. Be wise as the serpent and harmless as the dove. Get daily physical exercise. This will help to release your tension and anxiety. This is not the astrology for being sedentary. You want to be building your strength. Go outdoors. Breathe the fresh air. Allow Mother Nature to nurture you. She can heal you. Release what no longer serves you. Align yourself with what you want. Don’t allow anyone including you to get in your way. Be fearless.

How To Know Your Life Purpose In Under 20 Minutes

Source: Written By Steve Pavlina on his site http://www.stevepavlina.com – See more at: http://www.spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com/how-to-know-your-life-purpose-in-under-20-minutes/

How do you discover your real purpose in life? I’m not talking about your job, your daily responsibilities, or even your long-term goals. I mean the real reason why you’re here at all — the very reason you exist.

Perhaps you’re a rather nihilistic person who doesn’t believe you have a purpose and that life has no meaning. Doesn’t matter. Not believing that you have a purpose won’t prevent you from discovering it, just as a lack of belief in gravity won’t prevent you from tripping. All that a lack of belief will do is make it take longer, so if you’re one of those people, just change the number 20 in the title of this blog entry to 40 (or 60 if you’re really stubborn). Most likely though if you don’t believe you have a purpose, then you probably won’t believe what I’m saying anyway, but even so, what’s the risk of investing an hour just in case?

Here’s a story about Bruce Lee which sets the stage for this little exercise. A master martial artist asked Bruce to teach him everything Bruce knew about martial arts. Bruce held up two cups, both filled with liquid. “The first cup,” said Bruce, “represents all of your knowledge about martial arts. The second cup represents all of my knowledge about martial arts. If you want to fill your cup with my knowledge, you must first empty your cup of your knowledge.”

If you want to discover your true purpose in life, you must first empty your mind of all the false purposes you’ve been taught (including the idea that you may have no purpose at all).

So how to discover your purpose in life? While there are many ways to do this, some of them fairly involved, here is one of the simplest that anyone can do. The more open you are to this process, and the more you expect it to work, the faster it will work for you. But not being open to it or having doubts about it or thinking it’s an entirely idiotic and meaningless waste of time won’t prevent it from working as long as you stick with it — again, it will just take longer to converge.

Here’s what to do:

  • Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).

  • Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”

  • Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.

  • Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose.

That’s it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a counselor or an engineer or a bodybuilder. To some people this exercise will make perfect sense. To others it will seem utterly stupid. Usually it takes 15-20 minutes to clear your head of all the clutter and the social conditioning about what you think your purpose in life is. The false answers will come from your mind and your memories. But when the true answer finally arrives, it will feel like it’s coming to you from a different source entirely.

For those who are very entrenched in low-awareness living, it will take a lot longer to get all the false answers out, possibly more than an hour. But if you persist, after 100 or 200 or maybe even 500 answers, you’ll be struck by the answer that causes you to surge with emotion, the answer that breaks you. If you’ve never done this, it may very well sound silly to you. So let it seem silly, and do it anyway.

As you go through this process, some of your answers will be very similar. You may even re-list previous answers. Then you might head off on a new tangent and generate 10-20 more answers along some other theme. And that’s fine. You can list whatever answer pops into your head as long as you just keep writing.

At some point during the process (typically after about 50-100 answers), you may want to quit and just can’t see it converging. You may feel the urge to get up and make an excuse to do something else. That’s normal. Push past this resistance, and just keep writing. The feeling of resistance will eventually pass.

You may also discover a few answers that seem to give you a mini-surge of emotion, but they don’t quite make you cry — they’re just a bit off. Highlight those answers as you go along, so you can come back to them to generate new permutations. Each reflects a piece of your purpose, but individually they aren’t complete. When you start getting these kinds of answers, it just means you’re getting warm. Keep going.

It’s important to do this alone and with no interruptions. If you’re a nihilist, then feel free to start with the answer, “I don’t have a purpose,” or “Life is meaningless,” and take it from there. If you keep at it, you’ll still eventually converge.

When I did this exercise, it took me about 25 minutes, and I reached my final answer at step 106. Partial pieces of the answer (mini-surges) appeared at steps 17, 39, and 53, and then the bulk of it fell into place and was refined through steps 100-106. I felt the feeling of resistance (wanting to get up and do something else, expecting the process to fail, feeling very impatient and even irritated) around steps 55-60. At step 80 I took a 2-minute break to close my eyes, relax, clear my mind, and to focus on the intention for the answer to come to me — this was helpful as the answers I received after this break began to have greater clarity.

Here was my final answer:

To live consciously and courageously, to resonate with love and compassion, to awaken the great spirits within others, and to leave this world in peace.

When you find your own unique answer to the question of why you’re here, you will feel it resonate with you deeply. The words will seem to have a special energy to you, and you will feel that energy whenever you read them.

Discovering your purpose is the easy part. The hard part is keeping it with you on a daily basis and working on yourself to the point where you become that purpose.

If you’re inclined to ask why this little process works, just put that question aside until after you’ve successfully completed it. Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably have your own answer to why it works. Most likely if you ask 10 different people why this works (people who’ve successfully completed it), you’ll get 10 different answers, all filtered through their individual belief systems, and each will contain its own reflection of truth.

Obviously, this process won’t work if you quit before convergence. I’d guesstimate that 80-90% of people should achieve convergence in less than an hour. If you’re really entrenched in your beliefs and resistant to the process, maybe it will take you 5 sessions and 3 hours, but I suspect that such people will simply quit early (like within the first 15 minutes) or won’t even attempt it at all. But if you’re drawn to read this blog (and haven’t been inclined to ban it from your life yet), then it’s doubtful you fall into this group.

Here is an awesome TED talk about another way you can discover your life purpose in 5 minutes.
