There are many different vibrations we can resonate with at any given time. The world is so full of fear, stress, and anxiety that many of us run these vibrations through our body constantly, sometimes not even fully aware that we are doing so. It takes effort to shift our vibrations and raise them to an octave that resonates more fully with who our spirits are and what we want to match up with and manifest in our lives. But that effort doesn’t need to be difficult. It can be blissfully easy and actually ridiculously simple to do. You just have to use your intent.
The next time you feel like your vibes are off, try one of these 5 ways to raise them:
1. Get out of the situation or room you’re in.
If things are getting too heavy, give yourself a break. You don’t HAVE to be stuck there. Get out. Go to the bathroom. Walk around the block. Run around the block. Or just get in your car and drive away altogether. If you can sing or hum or listen to music as you’re doing this, all the better – it will raise your vibes. Notice what’s around you and really pay attention to what you see. Move your body, get out of your head, and your vibes will instantly get higher.
2. Pet your cat or dog or bunny or pet gerbil.
In an audio I have from Abraham and Ester and Jerry Hicks, (I LOVE THEM!) Jerry says something like “I don’t want to feel bad. In fact, I’m going to sit here and pet my cat until I feel a little better.” Animals have great vibes, and cats in particular have a sort of chi that naturally helps soothe humans who like cat energy. Of course, whatever pet you have will love you and love to help you raise your vibes. Think about how much you love your animal friend and as you pet him or her, flowing pink and golden energy out through your hands. The animal will feel it and get a little healing, too. Allow that shared healing vibration to soothe your soul and raise your vibes.
3. Get your humor on board.
Joy and true laughter raises vibes in an INSTANT! Get a friend to tell you a funny story, or go find your favorite funny video on youtube. When I first started doing readings in a healing center, I became friends with a co-worker who had my exact same sense of humor. I think he is hysterically funny. We laughed our days away, playing tricks on each other in between sessions, listening to music, telling funny jokes, and just having the best time. My energy was so good, despite the pain of all the people I was doing sessions for. The world takes everything so seriously. Laughter just breaks up darkness and brings in good, happy, high vibrations. Try to see the humor in everything, including your own personal drama. Try and make fun of yourself and make light of issues that are weighing you down. Easier said than done, but the more you try, the better you’ll get at it.
4. Do something deliciously lavish for yourself.
This may mean taking a serious bubble bath, eating a bowl of popcorn on a Tuesday at 2pm, or opening a really nice bottle of wine for no reason other than you want to raise your vibes. Buy something pretty or cool for yourself. Enjoy the nice things you can do because you’re a grownup. Your vibes will respond accordingly.
5. Do something good for someone else.
Smile at a stranger, hold the door for someone, or wait til a mother and her baby fully cross the street instead of cutting through the crosswalk in front of them in your car. If you’re in a situation where someone needs help, help them. Make a connection. If you feel like that’s not possible, at least think about what you can donate to others, or how you can help contribute to a greater cause on some level. Put a dollar in the tip jar, or in the donation box.
I love all of these things, but the best and very fastest thing that works for me is getting my humor on board. In fact, recently, when about to do some intense readings and healings, I’ve been saying a prayer and asking for higher guidance to help us lighten the tone and see the situation with more joy and humor. It is such a wonderful, high vibration, and laughter and joy really do break up darkness.
