“Your ‘vibration’ is a fancy way of describing your overall state of being. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Even things that look solid are made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum level. This includes you.”Cassandra Sturdy, Author & Transformational Coach
The other day, when I was talking with my son Ali, I wanted to explain to him the importance of raising our positive energy, our vibrations. To make it easier to understand, I used a metaphor.
I said, our vibrations are like social media algorithms. Whatever we focus on brings us more of the same kind of content. People say that there is so much so-called fake news, negativity, fear-mongering on social media. I listen to them and think inwardly; are we talking about the same platform? Because I do not seem to receive that kind of content on my news feed.
But that is only normal as I only focus and share positive, uplifting, motivating, and nurturing content. And as a natural result, my home page or news feed gets filled with the same kind of content. Whereas the ones who interact with others on politics, conflicts, anger, things that go wrong, get more of that.
Our vibrations work the same way. When we choose to focus on beauty, abundance, gratitude, friendship, compassion, and love, we raise our positive energy, and when we are at that energy level, we become a magnet for the same. While being angry, bitter, negative, and critical of others makes us a magnet for all those kinds of people, events, and circumstances. That is why it feels like problems, suffering, or pain follows us wherever we go. Because as we keep our vibrations low, we attract the same no matter where we are, what we do.
Make your light shine brighter
Raising our consciousness about our thoughts, catching the negative and hurtful ones, and replacing them with more positive thoughts, words, and gestures makes a significant difference. That might sound not so easy to do, and at the beginning, you might catch yourself later than you would like. Though keep trying. You will see that your ability to become the master of your mind is vast. And it is fun too, like an internal game you play with your mind.
Another easy way of raising your vibrations and keeping them high is through practicing acts of kindness. Why? Because giving to someone else without expecting anything in return shifts your thinking from “I don’t have enough” to “I have more than enough to give to others.” And that alone triggers your sense of abundance and gratitude, in return, raises your positive energy.
There are other simple but effective ways to grow our energy and turn ourselves into positivity magnets like;
- meditating regularly,
- appreciating and savoring small moments of happiness,
- connecting with nature and seeing its beauty,
- spending time with babies, puppies, anything that makes us smile or laugh,
- singing and dancing, or
- other activities that make us feel like we are in a flow.
You are a magnet, no matter what. Why not turn the energy-meter’s needle from low to high? And then to even higher? It is easy, it is free, and it brings visible results. Try and see.
