How to raise your vibration (steps and practices)
Now that you know how much these vibrations affect us, look at your life. Are you stressed or burnt out? Don’t you want to feel positive and light, to channel the energy of the world and make your dreams come true?
Then, join me. These are some practices that help me raise my vibrations! Make sure to follow them with great discipline. You’re putting in all this hard work for your higher self, who will thank you in the future.
1. Practice gratitude
I cannot say this enough. Offer thanks to the world, and it will give you more reasons to be thankful. Half the time, in our daily rush of hustling and whatnot, we forget how much we have that other people do not. The universe has brought you gift after gift, be it in the form of your loved ones or pets. Open your eyes and be grateful for that. Take a few minutes every day to remember all that you’re thankful for, and thank others too! It can make such a difference to a person’s day.
2. Practice meditation
Yes, meditation. I know, you’ve heard it time and time again, but it is that powerful.
It is such an efficient way to raise your vibrational energy; I cannot stress how vital it is. Even taking five minutes out of your day to meditate will cause a shift in a negative mindset. Your body functions on neurotransmitters like endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. And it has been scientifically proven that meditation triggers the brain to release these neurotransmitters.
Meditation brings you peace, and more importantly, it gives you space to reflect on yourself and your actions, which helps you avoid low vibrational actions.
3. Get in touch with nature
Look, we all love vacations for a reason. Get out of these concrete jungles we live in, and pluck a few daisies. Swim in the ocean, bask in the sunlight, but let yourself feel the natural world around you. The universe loves you, for you are its child. It made this world for you, like a home. Recharge and cleanse your energy in nature, and feel at home in Mother Nature’s womb.
4. Find a way to laugh
There is an old saying—laughter is the best medicine. And it’s been around for a reason. Learn to laugh at yourself and with others. Enjoy the one life you have with humor!
5. Move your body
Whether it’s going to the gym, yoga, or running, move your body. Stop hunching over your screens and let your body feel light, let it move, and revel. Isn’t it divine to have a body that is capable of housing your soul? Enjoy the body you have and let it cleanse your vibrational energy.
6. Clean your space
Clean that mess up. If there are obstacles in its way, light cannot shine. The same thing goes for vibrations. Get rid of the things that no longer serve you–especially that ex who keeps resurfacing during every retrograde. They’re no good for you!
7. Practice generosity and kindness
Generosity and acts of kindness are simple ways we can spread love and positivity. No act of kindness is ever too small. If you witness someone being kind, or if you are a recipient of such an act, be sure to thank the other person and express gratitude. This creates a “feel-good circle of positivity”. Volunteering with a local charity, helping a loved one with a simple favor, or giving a thoughtful gift are some simple ways we can practice kindness. Do not have expectations of receiving anything in return.
8. Listen to uplifting music
Listening to cheerful, uplifting music is an instant way to raise your vibration. While you’re at it, try moving your body and dancing to the beat. You can also listen to different sound frequencies, nature sounds, or meditation music.
9. Unplug for a while
Technology, screens, and social media now consume us at an alarming rate. Not everything we see in the media is good for our energy. This is why it’s important to turn off those devices and take a digital detox.
10. Write in a journal
Put down your worries and organize your thoughts in a journal. When you experience an emotion strongly, you can draw a picture or express yourself with colored pencils. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to keep a journal. That’s the beauty of it!
11. Get creative
That’s right, get back to those hobbies you loved. Whether it was learning an instrument, dancing, or singing, let art consume you. When we focus on something creative, our vibrations are automatically raised.
12. Notice the beauty around you
Did you notice how beautiful the sky can be, at different times of the day? Or the perfect golden hue of sunlight as it flows through your room at sunset? No matter where you are, take a few minutes to notice the beauty that surrounds you everywhere!
13. Eat high-vibration foods and stay hydrated
Everything you consume is prana, or life force energy. If you eat a lot of “dead” energy (in the form of meat, fried, or processed food), you will lower your vibration. By eating nutrient-dense, prana-rich foods, like local and organic fruits and vegetables, your body absorbs these things, making you more light, vibrant, and alive. High-vibration food makes a person’s vibration higher. Here is a list of high-vibration foods to get you started.

14. Surround yourself with positivity
The environment we spend our time in affects our vibrational energy. Surround yourself with inspirational books, pretty crystals, houseplants, beautiful artwork, and soothing objects. Choose your objects carefully, though—you don’t want to become a hoarder!
And finally, all you need is love! Love yourself, your partner, your environment, and the people around you. Turn your anger, hate, and other negative emotions into positive ones and share them with everyone you meet. Write your words of love on a water bottle, napkin, journal, and other places where you’ll see them through the day! Make a positive affirmation of love to yourself in front of the mirror every morning. Tell people you love them at every opportunity. As you learn to love, your vibration will increase, and you will be loved in return.
Pursuing your spirituality isn’t easy at all, but the deep joy and satisfaction of living a life that is so enriched by all that the universe has to offer? That is a feeling of unparalleled joy. source
How to Raise Your Emotional & Spiritual Vibration
The time has come for us to raise our vibrational forces! Read about these powerful ways to manifest your own positivity, light, and love.
A vibration is a state of being, the atmosphere, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thought, or thing. Much of reading “vibes” is intuitive—you can tell a person’s energy when they walk into a room, for example.
While some people draw you closer, others make you want to keep your distance. You see a depressing and violent news story, you get a heavy feeling in your gut. You witness a puppy cuddling with an infant, and you feel a warmth inside.
“As you think, you vibrate. As you vibrate, you attract.
You have heard time and again that whatever you offer out into the world will return back to you, as dictated by the Law of Attraction. Like attracts like. This law of the universe says that you are responsible for your life, and can manifest change according to how you direct your thoughts and emotions.
“Everything in life is vibration.” –Albert Einstein
Everything in the universe is made up of molecules vibrating at different speeds. This includes trees, bodies, rocks, animals, thoughts, and emotions. Human vibrations are composed of everything from physical matter to the way you communicate the thoughts you think. In simple terms, some molecules vibrate faster and some vibrate slower; there are higher vibrations and lower vibrations.
When you are vibrating at a higher level, you feel lighter, happier, and more at ease, whereas lower vibrations feel heavy, dark, and confused. Almost all spiritual traditions point the way toward higher realms of consciousness, and scientific studies (like that of consciousness research and spirituality author Dr. David Hawkins) have even quantified the vibrations of different states of being to create a scale of consciousness.
How are you vibrating right now? How about the world? The following are 12 ways you can help raise your vibration frequency.
Gratitudeis one of the quickest ways to amp up your vibration. Try it right now—stop reading and look around the room. Turn your attention to what you are thankful for in this moment (there is always something). It might be your purring feline, the beautiful weather, or the fact that you were blessed with another day on this earth. As life coach Tony Robbins said, “You can’t feel fear or anger while feeling gratitude at the same time.” Therefore, when you feel yourself experiencing a low energy emotion, see if you can shift your attention to gratitude. Make gratitude a habit, and it will transform your outlook on life as you start to experience a spiritual awareness and appreciation for the little things.
Call to mind someone who is easy to love, and hold that person in your heart. Visualize him or her sitting in front of you and notice how you feel. A feeling of expansion, lightness, and happiness will take over your being, and that right there is the shift you are looking for. Love is one of the highest vibrating states of being (the fourth highest level on the Hawkins’ scale of consciousness) and has the power to pull you out of even the deepest of ditches. Attune your heart to love and your energy will start to soar.
Anytime you get stingy or greedy with anything (love, attention, money), it lowers your vibration and it feels bad. In fact, anytime you attach your happiness to something outside of yourself, it leaves you feeling the opposite of how you want to feel. The antidote is to be generous. Whatever you want more of in your life, offer it out to someone or something else. Feeling poor? Give a little money to charity. Feeling lonely? Make an effort to make a stranger smile. Don’t have enough time? Give your time to a good cause.
4. Meditation and Breathwork
Dr. Hawkins’ research was based on the idea that the more “true” something is, the higher its level of consciousness (or vibration). Therefore, when you train yourself to be present with the moment you are in, you resonate more harmoniously with the truth. The past and the future are only in your mind; the only truth is now. Meditatingand breathing mindfully also calms your nervous system, improves your mood, and brings about greater feelings of peace—all high-vibe qualities that will benefit your state of being. This spiritual practice helps to raise your vibration level fast so that you can enjoy those benefits without delay.
According to Abraham-Hicks’ emotional guidance scale, blame is a low energy. Out of 22 emotions (arranged from highest vibration at number 1 to lowest at 22), blame is number 15. If you can work toward forgiveness, you will release yourself of this lower energy that can weigh on you like a bowling ball, and up the scale you will go.
From the epic Indian poem, the Mahabharata:
One should forgive under any injury. It has been said that the continuation of the species is due to man being forgiving. Forgiving is holiness; by forgiveness, the universe is held together. Forgiveness is the might of the mighty. Forgiveness is sacrifice; forgiveness is quiet of mind. Forgiveness and gentleness are the qualities of the self-possessed. They represent eternal virtue.
6. Eat High-Vibe Food
Everything you consume is prana, or life force energy. If you eat a lot of “dead” energy (in the form of meat, fried, or processed food), you will lower your vibration. By eating nutrient-dense, prana-rich foods, like local and organic fruits and vegetables, your body literally absorbs these things, making you more light, vibrant, and alive. High-vibration food makes a person’s vibration higher.
7. Reduce or Eliminate Alcohol and Toxins from Your Body
While it can temporarily feel good, alcohol is a depressant and lowers a person’s vibration. If you want to be clear, spiritually connected, and have a healthy outlook on life, chances are that eliminating toxins from your body would be a good place to start. Rather than numbing out, adopt a more healthful and holistic way of life and see if you don’t feel more energetically abundant.
8. Think Positive Thoughts
What you think about, you become, and each thought you think creates your future. If the thoughts you think are pessimistic, overtly anxious, or in any way negative, you will likely find what you are looking for. Just as gratitude draws more of the same into your life, so too does impatience, jealousy, and unworthiness. This negative energy can leave you feeling heavy and burdened. Be diligent about what thoughts you give your attention to, since it can take only 17 seconds for a thought to attract another one like it and activate the Law of Attraction. Push away negative energy and choose positive thoughts, for they are the key to positive change.
9. Consume High-Vibe Music, TV, Books, and Movies
Prana is not limited to the food you eat, but includes everything you consume. Be sure your entertainment is of high vibration and leaves you feeling uplifted rather than depleted. Does social media make you feel energetic or insecure? Does that violent action film actually enhance your moodor does it contribute to your anxiety? Does the music you listen to include violent or low-vibration lyrics? How might changing the soundtrack of your daily commute from death metal to mantras contribute to the course of your day? Be as selective about your media intake as you are about the quality of the food you eat, and you will find newfound energy in your day.
10. Surround Yourself with Beauty
While you are at it, be sure your home and work environments reflect beauty, passion, and enthusiasm for life. The right lighting can have a significant impact on your productivity and your mood. Hang art that inspires you. Use colors that calm and rejuvenate you. Reduce clutter and create more space for clarity. Your surroundings have a big effect on how you feel on the inside and live your life.
11. Go for a Walk Outside
A double-whammy for raising your vibration—get some exercise in the great outdoors. Get the sun on your face while you get your heart pumping. Take a break from the constant buzz of electricity and technology, and reconnect with Mother Nature. Even a few minutes spent mindfully outdoors can completely shift your mood, which is why going for a walk around the block when you’re having a mental block or a lover’s quarrel can be so beneficial.
12. Be Sure Your Relationships Are Vibing High
Finally, surround yourself with people who lift you up, rather than drag you down. Spend time only with people who make you feel better about yourself, people who believe in you, and are interested in resonating at a high frequency just like you are.
It can be tempting to succumb to a feeling of helplessness with regard to the future of the planet and all its inhabitants. But channeling your efforts into raising your energetic frequency is one of the best gifts you can give the world. When you lift yourself up, you bring others with you. This is the only way you can contribute to raising the collective consciousness of the world. source
