“Don’t adapt to the energy in the room. Influence the energy in the room”.
I’ve spoken a little about energy, the law of attraction and like energy attracting like energy. We are after all energy and we all omit a frequency- what we omit we will get back. We all know those people that walk into a room and there is something about them that people are drawn to. Some people think it’s about the way they look, their attractiveness or maybe even their status but it’s neither of these things it’s simply their energy!
Our energy is meant to be vibrationally high but of course life, emotions, pain, trauma and grief to name a few will lower our vibration until we work through these things and take action to raise our vibration. Negative emotions like shame, fear and anger will keep us at a low vibration, so identifying this and putting the work in here will pave the way for you to begin raising your vibration. It’s hard work as healing is not linear and this is in fact what we need to do-we need to feel, deal and heal from whatever has caused these low vibrational emotions. It’s all trauma based and some trauma is of course far worse then others but that’s another blog that I’m working on.
So how do we raise our vibration? How do we start attracting what it is we want in our life? There are many ways we can do this but I’ll focus on the one’s that I have found most successful. The key is consistency!
- Meditation– yes meditation! I know some people struggle with meditation, find it boring or make excuses that they don’t have time. Meditation takes practise and there’s a whole range of styles and techniques- so you can find one to suit you. Zen meditation is by far the easiest and suitable for all people and learning styles. Zen can be practised anywhere and I use it in the shower each day. Use your senses to bring you into the current moment. Feel the water on your skin. Smell the soap and shampoo. Listen to the sound of the water and look at your surroundings. This will bring you into the present moment. This can be practised anywhere.
- Following your passions- doing things you love everyday. For me it’s working on my course a little each day, it’s doing some writing everyday and it’s my daily walk on the beach. There are things we MUST do every day that we don’t necessarily love but we MUST find the time to do a little of what we are passionate about everyday.
- Journaling– a daily practise of gratitude journaling is a great tool. Appreciate and be grateful for what you have and what is yet to come. Feel it and believe it.
- Grounding– truly one of my favourite things to do! I walk anywhere between 6-10kms everyday and a good portion of that is barefoot on the beach. I throw in some sand running and walking at the edge of the surf. Being anywhere barefoot is grounding so if you aren’t near a beach, walk out on the grass, even in the dirt.
- Nature– spending time in nature, again one of my favourite things to do. It brings such inner peace and joy.
- Learning– I know some of you maybe thinking umm “I’ve done all the learning I can or want” but the fact is we are all capable of learning and growing. We can change our thinking, our beliefs and our brain. Learning new things is great for us. We should always want to learn and grow but I do realise that some people may choose to stay exactly where they are and ultimately that is their choice. How do we learn new things? We do courses. We read. We watch informative videos and I love Gaia- so many interesting things on there. We listen to podcasts. We step out of our comfort zone and learn something like a new language or perhaps a musical instrument. The world is full of new and exciting things to learn. Learn something new everyday.
- Reading– we read a little each day. We read uplifting and educational content. By reading we gain new perspectives. We open our awareness. We learn ideas and skills we can put into practise in our own lives or perhaps support others on their journeys.
- Observing our thoughts– it’s very easy to get caught up in our head. Overthinking and looping thoughts happen to all of us at times but if you can practise just observing your thoughts and allow them to pass through without attachment to an outcome, you will begin to understand your thoughts and how they impact you. This will allow you to eventually release them.
I am not an expert, just someone who has come from a really dark place and worked hard on myself to heal. I used my pain as a catalyst for change and throughout the journey and my desire to grow, I discovered a whole host of tools and decided that if I could step out of one comfort zone, I could most definitely step out of another- nothing grows in your comfort zone.
So here I am after leaving a marriage of over 25 years, living in a completely different area, having sacrificed certain relationships, a changed financial position, living alone for the first time in my life and I’ve jumped into studying and pursuing my passion of helping people, writing both this personal blog, writing for a global blog and writing a book. I’ve added learning a new language and am very focused on health and fitness. It’s been f*cking hard and devastatingly brutal at times and I’m not finished! Not finished healing or growing because realistically we never stop, if we want to continue becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Along the way I’ve found some people whose work whether it be videos, books or podcasts both educational and inspirational! Jay Shetty, Joe Dispenza, Aaron Doughty, Tim Ferris, Rob Dial, Jeff Brown and Eckhart Tolle. Find who resonates with you and you are bound to learn and be inspired!
Remember you will sometimes slip backwards or realise you have not fully healed from something you thought you had and that’s ok! As humans we are always a work in progress. Continue working on your trauma, your emotions and those dark shadows- you may not think you have any-believe me everyone does! Then you can start to work on your vibration and get into your natural flow because this is where the magic happens!
“Our level of consciousness is in direct proportion to the extent we “react” to external situations. The more we observe is the more we allow…as a result the more free of resistance we are. That’s the key to raising vibration”.
