I don’t know about you, but I LOVE things that smell divine. LOVE THEM!!! And I’m crazy about essential oils. They really do make me feel good. All I have to do to shift my energy is go into my closet, take out a little bottle, and smell it. Ahhh, aromatherapy!!!!

In this week’s video I talk about essential oils that help you to meditate, raise your vibration, and activate your clairvoyance/psychic abilities/third eye. I used to burn incense a lot, but now that I have a young one at home, I don’t want to have all that smoke in the air. Plus now I have a super amazing essential oil diffuser that is INCREDIBLE and lets me disperse the most beautiful aromas throughout my mediation/reading/energy healing space.

There are tons of essential oils you can use, and they really do help you to calm down or get energized, to help you tune in, raise the energy of a space, and heal you. You can use them in your skincare, put them onto your pulse points, and diffuse them. You can also clean with them, put them into your homemade toothpaste, ingest them, and all sorts of other things too but I usually just put them in my skincare blends and diffuse them.

In the video above, I talk about the ones I use specifically in the work I do. Because it is a longer video (20 minutes!) here is a short breakdown for you of SOME of the oils I use/talk about:

Frankincense: to create a sanctimonious atmosphere
Rosemary: to get you psychic!
Cinnamon: for psychic protection
Lavender: for relaxation, soothing
Cedar: to help with your personal power
Orange: to create an energy of joy

I love essential oils so much I also have a few room spray blends I made that can not only make a space smell better (I live with 3 boys if you count the cat), but also clear your aura and/or clear the energy of a room. Playing with essential oils is SO MUCH FUN!!! In fact, I’m expecting a delivery today with more rose oil, which my guides told me to incorporate into my skincare routine! I’m tickled and frankly, quite excited. It’s the little things, guys. The little things. 🙂

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.
