A How-to-Guide on Raising Your Vibration
There comes a time in most of our lives when we find ourselves in need of a little spiritual awakening. Sometimes it’s due to an overwhelming workload weighing us down, an overextended school schedule spinning us out of control, or simply because we’re feeling stuck in the mundaneness of our everyday routines. No matter the cause, it all comes down to one solution—raising your vibration.
When you’ve been vibrating at a low energy for too long, it can affect your performance on day-to-day basis, ultimately dragging you down and inhibiting you from reaching your full potential. Not only do low vibrations slow you down, but you might also find yourself deflecting the negative energy bottled up inside onto others. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with a how-to-guide for raising your vibration to the highest degree in order to get you back to a motivated and productive place in your life.
Add a little sparkle to your space by placing healing gemstones and large crystals throughout your house. Not only do crystals add to the overall aesthetic of a room, but they also have amazing properties to emanate specific energies you wish to establish. For example, rose quartz emits energies of self-love and acceptance, which is perfect to include in a space where you get ready in the morning in order to revitalize your inner confidence. If it’s light your sanctuary lacks, then bring the energy of the sun into your home with citrine, yellow jasper, or pyrite all of which carry energies of happiness, optimism, and joy. It’s as simple as adding a few crystals to your space that uplift your spirit—and ultimately raising your vibration— the second you gaze upon them. Choose the ones that you’re the most attracted to, the ones that give you “that feeling” somewhere deep within your soul. There are an abundance of crystals out there to suit your every need.
At first, meditation might be an intimidating concept to some of you busy bodies.
As the old zen saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.”
You might find yourself thinking about not thinking about anything, how to sit still for more than five minutes of inactivity, or weary of taking time to do a little self-reflecting. However, meditating with crystals is a great way to neutralize your energy levels and refresh your system so that you may go into a new day in a clearer, more balanced state of mind. In those times when you can’t seem to get out of your own head, meditation is great for taking a step back and cleansing your mind. If you’re new to meditation, try this simple daily meditation.
Get Outside + Immerse Yourself in Nature
One of the quickest ways to lift your spirits when you’re feeling low vibrational is to get outside. Breathing the fresh air and escaping from your current environment calms your mind and grounds you. Nature is a natural mood lifter that connects you with the vibrational consciousness of our planet. Whether it’s making a quick trip to the beach, planning a weekend getaway to the desert or simply taking a walk around the park, you won’t regret it. This simple interaction with nature will leave you feeling energized and full of high vibes. Try grounding yourself with a nature walking meditation!
Get back on track by writing down what it is you want to accomplish in the near future. While lifelong goals are wonderful to have, sometimes they can be so far down the line you forget to enjoy the little milestones you reach along the way. Therefore, in order to stay inspired, start setting intentions for yourself on a regular basis—either at the start of the day or beginning of a new week—and keep the fire burning inside you. After you accomplish a goal, you feel empowered and a sense of pride, which helps with raising your vibration and kickstarts your energy to fulfill a new task.
Self-talk Really Works
Positive affirmations are a wonderful way to lift your spirits and generate an overall optimistic outlook on your life. Telling yourself you are worthy and realizing your own potential is one of the most powerful ways for raising your vibrations. When you know who you are and that you are capable of accomplishing anything you set out to do, you feel an exhilarating sense of empowerment and motivation to move forward, which increases your productivity.
Ultimately, if you’ve been vibrating at a low energy for some time, don’t waste another second before revitalizing your spirit. Raising your vibration through the use of a little crystal energy, cleanse your mind of negativity, regroup to set purposeful intentions for yourself, and always remember to build yourself up with positive words. When you’re vibrating at a higher energy, you will feel lighter, and an overpowering weight will be lifted from your shoulders. It may not happen overnight, but is well worth your time and effort once you’re living off the highest energy.
