"Why?" you say... because... every thought and feeling has a measurable vibration.
Here are a few, common ways to start raising your vibrations:
1. Become conscious of the foods you eat.
When a negative thought comes into your head, thank it for showing up, dismiss it, and then counter that thought with a positive thought—even if you're not feeling so positive at the moment.
As you continue practicing this, thinking more positively will become more natural, and the less those negative automatic thoughts will push through.
Come up with affirmations and place them in spaces that allows you to see and read them throughout the day. (e.g., bathroom mirror, window, door frame, fridge, sink, etc.)
Every time you see one, read it in your head or out loud at least three times. For more affirmations to get you started, visit these links:
Affirmations to get you started:
- Today, I am brimming with energy overflowing with joy
- My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil
- I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions
- My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.
2. Make meditation a regular practice.
Daily meditation does not rely on you sitting in a certain position, being silent for hours. Meditation can last for as short or for as long as you personally need it to. Even if it is only for a minute, being still, quiet, and thoughtless for that minute can bring about significant change.
If you find that it is difficult being still and clearing your mind, that may indicate a greater need for meditation and "quiet time" in your daily routine.
Simple Ways to Meditate
- Choose your mantra
- Find a comfortable place to sit
- Gently close your eyes and begin taking deep, slow breaths
- Begin silently repeating your mantra
- Do not try to stop your thoughts or empty your mind: the mantra will help you drift
- *Stop repeating the mantra: you will soon be in a meditative state
Start paying attention to how you feel immediately after you eat certain foods (up until two hours of consumption). Some foods vibrate high, while others vibrate low (e.g., foods covered in pesticides).
3. Become conscious of the foods you eat.
Organic fruits/veggies, natural supplements (e.g., spirulina), herbal teas, herbs and spices, pure/filtered water, healthy oils (e.g., olive oil, coconut oil), nuts and seeds, fermented foods, raw chocolate, raw honey/maple syrup, legumes, grains (e.g., buckwheat, brown rice, spelt, amaranth)
GMO foods, chemical/pesticide treated foods, white rice, white flours, coffee, sodas, alcohol, sugars/sweeteners, meat, fish, poultry, processed/packaged canned foods, fast foods, unhealthy oils (e.g., canola, cottonseed, margarine, vegetable), frozen foods, pasteurized cows milk/yogurt/cheese, cooked foods, deep fried foods, microwaved foods
4. Reduce (or eliminate) your drug/alcohol usage.
Alcohol and almost all artificial drugs vibrate low. In addition to subjecting your body to such low frequencies, you are also attracting like-minded individuals—which in turn adds to the decline in your aspirations of reaching a higher frequency.
5. Be aware of your home environment.
This is such an in-depth topic in itself... We all know that music has the power over our emotions, and can influence how we feel and/or react to certain environmental cues.
Fortunately, there are three key factors to consider when selecting music to raise your vibration:
- How Pitch Affects Vibration
"Low pitch tones have a low vibrational frequency and high-pitched tones have a high vibrational frequency. The pitch of a song greatly influences the total emotion of the song, so select songs that have a higher pitch to lift your spirits."
- How Speed Affects Vibration
Simply put: "The speed of a song is also part of it’s frequency. The faster the song, the higher its frequency vibration. The slower the song the lower its frequency vibration."
- How Words Affect Vibration
The words that you listen to also have the power to affect your vibrational frequency. Therefore, be mindful of the messages in your songs. Songs that promote empowerment, love and happiness have a more positive effect than songs focusing on turmoil, depression, anger or hate.

6. Be aware of your home environment.
Clear your clutter.
Believe it or not, the process of clearing out your clutter has proven to be therapeutic for many. As you get rid of things that you know longer need, want, or love, you will begin to feel "lighter." This is an important beginning step in introducing healthy feng shui into your home.
Have Good Quality Air/Light
In order to reciprocate good feng shui energy, or Chi, it is gravely important to ensure you are allowing good quality air and light into your home. Ways to achieve this is to frequently open windows, and position feng shui air-purifying plants (or an air-purifier) in key locations of the home.
Define the Bagua
The Bagua, or the feng shui energy map, of your house can be achieved by way of two methods—the classical school bagua or the BTB grid. Once you define the bagua, you will know which areas of your home are connected to specific areas of your life.
The five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) interact between themselves—defined as the Productive and Destructive Cycles. This act ensures an effective flow of feng shui throughout the home.
- Wood: Green, Brown
- Fire: Red, Strong Yellow, Orange, Purple, Pink
- Earth: Light Yellow, Sandy/Earthy, Light Brown
- Metal: White, Gray
- Water: Blue, Black
Color green is excellent for improving health and balancing family life when used in the East feng shui bagua area of your home.
Color blue is a very good feng shui choice in the North bagua area to support the energy of your career growth or in the East (Health/Family) and Southeast (Wealth/Money) areas to water and nourish the Wood feng shui element.
Have some strong yellow color in the South feng shui bagua area for happy gatherings and good times.
Pure white color in the West feng shui bagua area (Creativity & Children) will bring supportive energy for all your creative endeavors.
Feng Shui Birth Element ...
Once you are aware of your birth element, you will be free to decorate you home/office/space accordingly. The elements (along with their colors) work together to bring you the ultimate oasis of space and feeling.
Kua Number/Your Lucky Directions
Find out yours so that you can be energized by good energy from your best, or lucky feng shui directions. Adjust the position of your bed, your desk, the seating in your dining area, etc. For example, if your Kua number is 1, it is best to face one of the following directions: Southeast, East, South, and North.
Energy in Your Home
Always be mindful of and how energy influences your well-being. Make a habit of paying close attention to the so-called feng shui "trinity" that is deeply connected to your health—your bedroom, your bathroom, and your kitchen. Nothing is static in the world of energy, so be wise and keep your home healthy and happy.
How To Apply the Feng Shui Bagua Map
7. Reduce the amount of low-vibrational television being watched.
Many TV shows and stations continuously feed our anxious minds with worry, doubt, drama, fear, anger, and also can leave its viewers with changed minds regarding one's own physique and appearance. To combat such low frequency energy, incorporate healthier viewings into your day—a gallery in your phone of funny/cute pictures may help.
8. Become aware of the vibrational levels of those around you: acquaintances, friends, family, co-workers.
Choose to surround yourself with people who are empowering, have the same morals/values/aspirations as you, as well as the same mindset.
9. Practice compassion, forgiveness, and patience.
The key is to give and to take action even when no one is around to commend your acts of kindness—and it could be anything. Taking the elderly/injured neighbors trashcan to the street. Paying it forward at a restaurant, gas station, retail store, etc. Paying a toll. Opening a door for someone having a hard time. Giving out a compliment. Taking on someone else's chore for the day. As cliche as it sounds, honestly, the possibilities are endless.
10. Practice compassion, forgiveness, and patience.
Forgiving and having compassion for someone who hurt you is one of the most important actions presented on this list. What's even more difficult is forgiving someone who showed no remorse or no plans to ask for forgiveness. However, hanging on to thoughts of revenge and emotions of hurt and pain only hurts you in the long run—it especially lowers your frequency. Just by thinking thoughts of forgiveness, without taking any action, will raise your vibration.
