When we are born we come into this world vibrating at a certain frequency. It is our “energy signature”. Our vibration is a measurement of the speed our energy flows around our body, the speed and direction of our chakras.. This relates to how fast we process ideas, emotions and situations… It is something that we cannot measure yet we know it exists. You can tell the difference between the days you wake up happy and excited about life, and those days where you just cannot seem to get out of bed. Our vibration changes depending on our moods, but overall we have a baseline vibration that sets the scene for who we make friends with, who we hang out with, how experiences shape us and how we deal with relationships. For example, when we go and learn new things, or have life experiences, our vibrations change. We spin at a higher or a slower rate depending on the size of the lesson we have learned, or how well we are coping with life. We notice how our environment vibrates when we do not match our surroundings anymore. We all discover at some point of our lives that people we used to feel comfortable with or have things in common with just don’t understand what we are talking about, they don’t “get us” anymore. We have “grown out of them”, but in energetic terms it is because we spin at a different rate than they do, we process things at a different speed and we can see a different “bigger picture” to them. We leave them behind or we slow down. Slowing down doesn’t feel good, and there are so many people out there afraid to step away from what no longer serves them and embrace their true spirit. Because doing this challenges our relationships, challenges where we choose to live, what we choose to do with our career… Once we achieve learning we expand, we change our vibration, and we cannot go back to the way things were. Nothing will ever be the same again.

It is incredibly difficult making lifestyle changes such as changing job, it can be heartbreaking breaking up with a partner and moving house can be the most stressful thing you experience in your life. If you feel like you are suffocating staying in the same place, you will have to make the changes or you will get sick. And once you make the changes, you attract in new people who match your vibration, a new career that stretches and challenges you, a new life that uplifts you and feels better than where you were.

Through my years experience as an energy healer I am finding that more and more people are becoming aware of their own vibrations. They are accepting and are willing to work with it instead of against it. They are finding new language, exploring new ways to enhance their lives, to increase their vibration, and are happy about it. I thought I would write about some ways that you can increase your vibration for you to try out yourselves, and if you do it with a body-awareness, you can see exactly how it affects you, feel how good or how strange it feels. And most of all, you can use these to learn new ways to look after yourself.

Asking for help: If you are feeling ill or low or sad most days, you can go to a vibrational healer. Vibrational healing works to clear through energetic blockages at all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – to rebalance a person energetically at all levels.

There are many, many forms of vibrational healing, such as:

  • Hands-on healing modalities like Reiki and Seichem
  • Flower and Vibrational Essences
  • Acupuncture and Acupressure
  • Reflexology
  • Shiatsu
  • Sound Healing
  • Colour Therapy
  • Crystal Healing

Again, some of these things will attract you, some will not be your thing. Explore with an open mind, and check in with yourself afterwards if you are not happy – was it the practitioner or the actual practice? Is it worth another try or did it really not work? Did it work and is it something you would do for yourself when you need to? Maybe write down in your diary every 3 or 4 months to go see someone in a healing capacity for a “boost” or a “recharge” and just do it! You will notice the difference in your energy levels and your attitude towards life.

Maintaining the vibration: Going to a healer is wonderful when we need some help, but if we do not maintain ourselves in our daily life, we can slow back down and drop to a lower level vibration without even realising it. It is ideal if you can incorporate some practices or rituals into your day so that you can spend time maintaining and caring for your energy signature.

Here are some powerful and fun ways you can increase your own vibration, anytime you have the space (or make the space) to do it:

  • Spend some time in nature connecting to trees, rivers, rocks, sky…. actually feeling an energetic connection rather than just walking quickly through a park
  • Meditating using chakra colours, breathing, mantras… connecting to the earth and to the sky… clearing your mind and focussing on positive instead of negative
  • Playing with animals and children, not thinking about “adult” issues but really stepping off the level of adult and stepping into your imagination
  • Letting go of emotional baggage – releasing it using fire ceremony, writing a note and burning it, breathing it into a rock and throwing it into a river… use your imagination here too!
  • Knowing that there is something bigger than all of us and surrendering to it – taking a step back from your level of importance in the world and knowing that everything happens for a reason. If you can do this – wonderful!!
  • Reclaiming your power – you can do this by using mantras (“I can do this” “I deserve happiness” “I can and I will”) shout them out loud and feel your body resonate with them because you truly mean it.
  • Forgiving yourself and/or others – letting go of the pain that holds you back from your life is one of the things that has the biggest effect on your vibration.
  • Honouring and nurturing yourself – light candles, have a bath, go to the movies, meet a favourite friend, play your favourite music…. just discovering how to honour and nurture yourself can be great fun too.
  • Using an object to hold the energy of the space where you want to be (for example using jewellery, crystals or images as a reminder that you can be where you want to be, that goodness is out there in the world and it is waiting for you)

It is useful to look at what lowers a person’s vibration so that you can stop or change your behaviour/the situation. You can lower your natural vibration if you become caught up in the following:

  • Holding onto old emotional hurts, such as resentment, bitterness, grief and sadness
  • Not forgiving yourself and/or others
  • Putting yourself down your list of priorities
  • Holding back from speaking your truth
  • Not addressing stresses and frustrations
  • Needing everything to be exactly right
  • Making judgements on others or on yourself

There are many more things we can add to both lists. But I hope at the end of this note you feel a little more in touch with what works for you and can incorporate some new joy into your life to help you raise your vibrational level.
