How To Raise Your Vibrational Frequency
Ascension is all about raising your vibration. Energies are swirling about and changes are occurring internally and externally. Sometimes the symptoms of ascension can seem uncomfortable because they are unfamiliar or you may not be well prepared for the intensity that these higher energies and frequencies can bring.
Find something of beauty and just appreciate it. This can be anything from something in nature, to a painting or even your favorite color. Get creative. There can be beauty in a flower growing from the crack in a sidewalk, or from the sparkle in a loved one’s eyes, a child’s innocent smile, or a newly organized area of your living space. Beauty can be found in the bold and the subtle. Find anything. Just one thing. That’s all you need.
Learning is a part of the beauty of Life. Thinking positive thoughts is a quick way to raise your vibration. But don’t give up if you can’t seem to change your thoughts or raise your vibration right away. It requires patience and practice. Take out a journal and write (or type out) your thoughts. Write down the thoughts that reflect the experiences that you would like to have and imagine how good these things would feel as if they are happening right now.
The physical act of writing down thoughts instead of typing them require thousands of more neurons to interact—and the more associations you have between more neurons in the brain that reflect your positive thoughts and intentions–the easier and more natural it will become to raise your vibration with less effort in the future.
Practice the art of gratitude. Make a list of all that you are grateful for in your life. There is always something. Things could always be worse. Be grateful for what you have because somewhere there is someone wishing they had what you have. Be thankful for even the little things that often we forget to notice or take for granted. There are a dozens–if not hundreds– of little things to appreciate each day if you deliberately look for them, you will find them. Writing these things down is also beneficial because neuro-biological changes occur when you shift your focus to one of gratitude. Even the simple act of breathing or the fact that you are able to read this right now is something to be thankful for.
Meditate. Clear your mind. Focus on your breathing. Think of nothing. Relax your body. This will at least put you in a neutral space and therefore for a more positive space to begin practicing positive thoughts afterward and raise your vibration even higher. Regular meditation has tremendous health benefits and can keep your vibration high or can help you raise your vibration more quickly when you are in a lower space. Meditation that involves visualization or focusing on a single object in the room or within your minds eye (like a color)can be beneficial as well.
Another creative way to raise your vibration and help create a desired experience is to meditate while focusing on your intention, while imagining the details of the experience you would like to have, and feeling the emotions associated with that desire. Meditate often–your body will thank you!
Help someone, or do something kind for someone else. Even just smiling at a stranger. The act of generosity, kindness, compassion, and helping or giving to someone else will help to raise your vibration. It takes you out of the negative mindset of thinking that you don’t have enough (energy, love, etc) to knowing and feeling that you have more than enough to give to others. Also, what we give will always come back to us in some way–this is the law of return. The feeling of abundance is a high vibration, and we must give in order to receive.
Listen to music that you Love. Yes it’s true that music that is harmonious, melodic, peaceful, and soothing is very healing to the soul and can quickly raise your vibration, but listening to any type of music or songs that make you feel good or think thoughts that make you feel better than your current vibration will be beneficial and will raise your vibration. Any music that makes you feel at peace, excited, happy, joyful, even sentimental nostalgia can all raise your vibration. Classical music and nature sounds are proven to be have a positive effect on the mind and the body.
Another great way to raise your vibration is to listen to meditative music or binaural beats which are often created and used for the purpose of mind-body healing, relaxation, expansion and raising of the vibration. Ancient chants from Buddhist or Gregorian monks are often designed to shift your frequency. Even verbally reciting sacred sounds such as “Om”, mantras, prayers, or singing out loud will also raise your vibration!
Stop complaining to yourself and to others. Stop gossiping. Stop focusing on what you don’t want, or the things you don’t have or don’t like. Instead, focus on the things you DO want, and things you DO have (see gratitude) and things you do like. Talk about these things that you want and like more often instead of talking about the things you don’t want or like. Start finding ways to rejoice and practice finding something positive to say to someone every day. Find the glass half full instead of empty. If you notice something that is ‘negative’, then find at least one single think that is positive about that same thing. This helps to create balance and harmony within your mind and your vibration will raise as a result.
Change your DNA. Your DNA has a vibration. There are specific sound frequencies that you can listen to which will shift your vibration. Meditations and visualization can also help shift your vibration by changing the frequency of the cellular structure of your body and your energy level, as well as changing and rewiring your DNA, and even updating it so that even newer and higher frequencies can be achieved and maintained on a regular basis. Raising your vibration and being in a positive space can change your DNA naturally, and changing your DNA through various activations, meditations and guided visualization can profoundly raise your vibration–and then some!
Move. Exercise. Get active. Dance, roller skate, rock climb–anything that stimulates the body will clear the mind–and your vibration! Physical movement and activity will not only change your vibration by shifting the perspective of your mind, but it also creates physical endorphins which is the natural way our body helps us to feel happy. The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating on a different frequency. Some great ways to get moving and raise your vibration in another way, is to take a nature walk since the great outdoors will also boost your energy and mood. Do some stretches if you are stuck indoors, or consider tai chi or yoga which can also be meditative in nature and will raise your vibration in more ways than one.
In fact, practicing Yoga, Tai Chi, Reiki or Qigong–or any other form of martial arts is beneficial to raising your vibration, because all of these practices aim at shifting your mental and physical vibration while raising your Qi (energy level all of your subtle bodies) and your overall spiritual vibration.
Jump up and down! It is said that the simple act of jumping excites the cells in the body which makes us healthier. It can energize us by giving us a quick burst of endorpins–the positive hormones–and it can boost our mood. Physical activity in general is beneficial to overall mind-body health which in turn will benefit spiritual well-being and keep your vibration at a healthy level at the same time.
Not sure how you’re vibrating? Have you tried any of the above techniques yet? How do you feel right now? Just feel what’s happening in your body. Clear your mind and relax. Just observe what you’re feeling and experiencing in your body and you can change it. Perception starts with awareness.
Practice Affirmations. Do these mental repetitions each day for the purpose of creating positive energy and raising your vibration. Say to yourself 100 times a day: “I am happy”, or “I am abundant”, etc. Whatever your affirmation may be. Decide what you want (or how you want to feel) and make it into a statement or a series of statements that are in a positive form or using positive or feel-good words. Practice these positive feel-good statements and affirmations each morning when you wake up and each night before you go to bed, and anytime you need to shift your focus or vibration. Create new affirmations as you go along as needed.
If you practice these affirmations on a regular basis and include strong intentions, focus, and positive emotion-filled visualization then you are also well on your way to actually manifesting the intentions that you’re affirming!
Realize that you have more control over your life than you may currently believe. You are not a victim of circumstance or ‘bad luck’ or your past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can rise above these situations or experiences and your can change your mind-set and your vibration–and your entire life–in an instant. Even a lot of small steps towards a desired goal on a consistent basis can lead to profound and significant change over time. Realize also, that sometimes you can’t necessarily change or control an external situation directly or change another’s persons words or actions when you want to, but you can change and control your own words, actions, thoughts and responses to external situations or people.
Positive thoughts, words, and actions that are in alignment with your desires will result in positive feelings that match your desire–and change your vibration accordingly–in order to attract like vibrations (people and experiences) into your life. The law of return in also at work here, since what you give out you will most likely receive back in some way, shape or form. No-thing or no-one can ultimately control how you think or feel–except you.
In many Wisdom traditions and esoteric teachings this concept is called ‘total responsibility’. No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It is not a curse, but it is a blessing because it gives you your own personal power back. It is your power, and no-one or no-thing else can ever take this away from you. No-one can take away your ability to think or to feel—and to choose–the thoughts you will think and the feelings that result, or the actions that you are willing take as a result.
Breathe. Just sit and focus on your natural breathing. Don’t force it. Notice if you are holding your breath or if your body is tense. Relax. Breathe in and breathe out slowly and deeply and then concentrate and allow the natural rhythm of your breath to cycle, longer and fuller, as you become more and more relaxed. This process and practice has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration. A relaxed body is a peaceful body (body full of peace) and a mind that is either clear and tranquil, or filled with positive-feeling and serene thoughts that will raise one even higher.
Drink energy charged water. Drink lots of water in general because this helps flush toxins out of the body and nourishes and revitalizes your organs and your vibration! To energize water directly you can say a prayer, recite an affirmation, chant a mantra or sing a harmonious song over the water. You can also tape pieces of paper with positive or healing words or pictures. If you have a bottle or glass of water you can hold it with the thumbs and middle fingers touching either side of the bottle and send the water love. After you energize the water you can drink it or leave it for later (you can repeat the energizing techniques a few more times if you’d like, as this will super-charge up the water even more).

You can also charge and energize your water by leaving it in the sunshine or near a window where the sun is streaming through. You can place particular healing and energizing crystals or gemstones near the water as well. As you drink the water, feel gratitude as it nourishes you, and feel your vibration raise almost instantly!
Practice Mudra. Mudras are ancient hand gestures that redirect energy (prana, chi) back into the body in much the same way that light is refracted/reflected from the wall of a physical structure. By learning these powerful and specific ways in which to hold your fingers, you can direct positive energy into your body. Mudras can also be used along with specific mantras or sound affirmations to circulate more energy and for a more powerful vibratory effect.
Clear your mind! Often we are tense, stressed, feeling low or thinking negative thoughts simply because we are overwhelmed and having too many thoughts! You can have too many thoughts at once racing through our mind and this can drain your energy very quickly. Clear your mind and practice deep breathing or meditation and just relax!
Be present in the now moment. The only moment that truly exists is right NOW. The past is history and only exists as a memory and the future is either pre-destined or filled with unlimited possibility–and thoughts are useful tools for manifesting reality–but for now just BE. Sit within the present moment and accept it just as it is. Be present with your physical body and how it feels right now. Look around the physical environment you are in right now and notice something in particular and focus on it deliberately. Feel grounded. Know that everything just IS.
A majority of negative thoughts and feelings are connected to worry or regrets having to do with the past–situations that are long gone; all that remains is the memory or the re-playing of re-arranging of the details in your mind. The same goes with the future, although positive thoughts and feelings and visually replaying situations as you’d like them to occur can help to manifest that very future, having negative thoughts about the future can bring about the same! Negative thoughts about the future tend to be connected to worries or worse-case scenarios and ‘what if’s’. Be present, be in the now, be still, be at peace. You are safe right here and right now, the only moment that truly exists is NOW.
Laugh! Laughter raising your vibration like you wouldn’t believe–but you’d better believe it! (because our beliefs often help influence our reality). It gets your body and mind stimulated in a positive way and it releases negative tension and is a great way to relieve stress and clear the mind of any negatively energized or gloomy thoughts. Find some funny comedy videos, tv shows or movies to watch. Find some funny songs or photos. Imagine funny scenarios in your head or recall something funny that happened to you in the past, like something funny someone did or said. A really good laugh can have you in tears–tears of cleansing and release of pent up tension and negativity!
It’s great to see the brighter and lighter side. Don’t take yourself so seriously. Instead of getting upset about a situation, maybe reframe it and see it in an interesting new way or find something humorous about the situation in order to blow off some steam and relax a little. Things are not always as bad as they seem, and remember, you’re not alone! Sometimes it’s ok to just smile and give yourself a break–away from the worry or the critical mindset. Humor can lighten up our mood and raise our vibration higher!
