Raising Your Vibration - What Is It & How To Do It!

What is a raise in vibration?

IMG_0511.JPG

A raise in vibration is a raise in awareness and energy that elevates your connection to Spirit. I do believe this is facilitated by the expansion of the aura and the opening of the crown chakra. The physical body is dense. Spirit energy vibrates at a much faster and higher rate than ours. The higher the vibration, the more pure the vibration. 

In terms of a hierarchy of vibrational energy from lowest to most high, here is my understanding: 

1. Humans

2. Loved Ones in Spirit/Ancestors

3. Spirit Guides/Saints

4. Angels

5. Ascended Masters

6. Deity

7. The All - The Universe  

How does it feel to raise your energetic vibration? What may you experience?

For me, I experience happiness, joy, a lightness of being. My mind is free and clear. I get the tingles and my awareness of Spirit and energy is heightened. The world has a different glow to it. My body temperature rises and yes, I may begin to sweat. I speak faster as my mind begins to shift to an altered state. I feel uplifted and closer to Spirit. It is easier to communicate with your guides and spirit as well as raises your energy when your vibration is elevated.

A word of advice: Like any energetic attunement, a raise in vibration is like a breath of fresh air. An energetic high from which you don't want to come down. When doing readings all day in that high vibrational energy, it can be intoxicating. You may want to stay there forever. This however, can be dangerous. It may take a while for your body to assimilate your raise in vibration.

As you experience this energetic shift, you may not feel your best. You're shedding old thoughts, patterns, beliefs, ways of being. You're cutting cords to people, places, and things that no longer serve you. Your body may begin to purge itself of toxins.

Stay hydrated. Stay grounded. Stay shielded and protected energetically as when you raise your vibration and expand your aura, you open yourself up energetically. Don't forget to ground and "shut down" afterwards. Remember you're a spiritual being that has incarnated to have a physical experience and staying in your "woo-woo head" too long can lead to energetic burnout.  

How to Raise your Vibration

All that being said, here are some of my tips for raising your vibration!

Listening to your favorite feel good or spiritual music can help to raise your vibration. What does your soul like to listen to? Drumming, nature sounds, EDM, rap, top 40? Sing along! Clap your hands, stomp your feet, twirl around! This also helps to raise your energy.

Focus on the breath! Take nice, deep cleanising breaths. By focusing on the breath, your mind can begin to enter an altered state or at least more relaxed state. Clear your mind and create space for Spirit. 

Visualization and meditation are key! These tools help you to prime your energetic vessel for ascension. During meditation, when you wish to connect to Spirit, or tap into the energy of the Universe, visualize opening your crown chakra and expanding your aura. *Tip - Visualize the floors going up on an elevator as you breathe. Feel your vibration begin to rise as you ascend.

Open your crown chakra! Bring the color purple into your awareness. Get out the Lotus oil. Work with high vibrational crystals like selenite or amethyst to help facilitate this process. If you want something that packs a little more punch, give apophylite or moldavite a try! (Not for beginners to crystal energy or energy work in general).

Get plenty of rest, fruits, veggies, and water. I know, I know, I say this a lot. I have found a high vibrational diet to be helpful in my own practice, as these habits help you to feel your best from the inside out. This is important when trying to work with high vibrational energy.

Exploring nature is good for the soul and awakens the Spirit. It helps you to feel connected to The All, brings awareness to the energy all around you, and allows you to feel one with the Universe. Expand your awareness to notice signs, symbols, and synchronicities in nature.

Cleaning your space and clearing your energy helps to aid in the energetic flow required to facilitate a raise in vibration of not only your environment, but also your spirit energy.

Have your Spirit Guides been trying grab your attention?

Was that a message from my Spirit Guide? How do I know when my Spirit Guides and Angels are close by? I feel like they may be trying to tell me something but I'm just not sure if it's my imagination or not? If you're unsure as to whether your Spirit Guides are trying to relay a message to you, here are some great tips to help you know when your personal Spirit Guide entourage may be near!

1.  Chills + Shivers

For years I would get the chills and not know why. It could be 90 degrees outside and I can get a case of the shivers. And it's not that I would be cold, or feel cold when I got them - it was just my body reacting to something and I just didn't have a clue what it was! I accepted it as one of my quirks and moved on. However, after many years of my life with this mystery, I discovered that this is in fact a sign from my guides and Spirit! In my experience, when my Spirit Guides or Spirit (departed loved ones on the Other Side) are close, I will get the shivers unexpectedly. Almost like a rush of wind just goes through you. This is when your guides (or Spirit) step into your aura or your energetic field. You are sensing the change in vibration of your energetic field.

2.  Finding Feathers Unexpectedly

Lovely, light, airy, and free. You may walk out of your house one morning and find a feather on your doorstep or on the windshield of your car. Feathers are often a sign from your Spirit Guides or Angels that they are surrounding you. Feathers are a symbol that a message is trying to be relayed to you from your guides. They are often a sign of comfort and a reminder that you are not alone. I always love when I find a feather out of the blue. It  feels like a direct connection, a secret code from my guides, just for me. The color of the feather you find can also be a part of the message! Here are my personal associations for what a particular color feather may be trying to tell you:

Red Feather - joy, passion, energy, vitality, strength

Blue Feather - calm, self expression, truthfulness

White Feather - peace, love, purity, unity

Gray Feather - it may be time to find clarity in your situation, just ask us for help!

Black Feather - protection, release of worry + fear, magick

Brown Feather - grounding, connecting with Earth, taking care of your physical body

3.  A tickle or feeling of warmth on your skin

For me, this is particularly noticeable on my back or shoulders. It gives off this feeling of protection like my guides are saying "We literally have your back." There's definitely an increased sense of safety and security when I feel my guides around me. Sometimes the feeling of warm, golden energy is lasting. You feel enveloped in warmth and protection. In terms of feeling a tickle on the skin, that can be quite fleeting. By the time you notice it, it may be gone. Your guides are just checking in and saying 'Hey!' I often feel this as briefly as a peck on the cheek or a brush on my shoulder.

4.  Repeating Numbers

Seeing repeating numbers (also known as Angel Numbers) are a very synchronistic way that your Spirit Guides (and Angels!) may communicate with you. If you are seeing the same number pattern over and over, such as 111, 378, 444, 656,  333, 989, 542, 888...etc. there is definitely a message there for you. Look up the meaning of the numbers you keep seeing. For me, it is always a helpful message about my guides being with me, letting me know I may need to change my focus, or giving me loving encouragement on my path when I need it most.

5.  A name you keep hearing - What's in a name?

Let's say for a moment that every time you go into meditation, you keep hearing a name over and over again. 'Foster...Foster...Foster' Yes, this could be a message from Spirit, but it could also be the name of a Spirit Guide who is trying to work with you! Here's a tip: If you ask your Spirit Guide for their name, go with the first name you get. Then look up the meaning of that name. I always find something extremely profound when I do this. This can also really help you to form a deeper relationship with and understanding of your Spirit Guide.

6.  A recurring symbol in meditation

In meditation, you may keep seeing a recurring symbol, let's say a conch shell for example. It is troubling you because somewhere in your 20 minutes of meditation this symbol keeps popping up meditation, after meditation, after meditation. This is a HUGE sign from your Spirit Guides! The conch shell is a symbol of truth. Is there a situation in your life where honesty and truthfulness is a concern? My most recent recurring symbol was the crystal Amethyst. I would wake up in the morning hearing and seeing this stone over and over again. At first it was maddening until I took the time to connect with my guides and say 'Hey, what's up with this?' Upon further exploration, it made total sense that my guides wanted me to work with this crystal more to help deepen my connection with them. Always look up the symbolic meaning of the sign or gift you receive in your meditation. And if your still unsure, just ask your Spirit Guides for clarification - they may be trying to tell you something that could lead to a big breakthrough!

7.  You keep feeling nudged in a certain direction and aren't sure why

You keep feeling the nudge to move to a new city, change careers, or ask that person you think is super cute out on a date. You're not sure where this nudge is coming from but yet it keeps pulling and tugging you in a certain direction. Trust this! This is more than likely your guides dropping hints, giving gentle pushes, and whispering in your ear as to which path you should take. It may even lead you closer to your Soul's Purpose and your destiny! Please note, a Spirit Guide is of the highest vibration and will NEVER encourage you to do something that would be harmful to others and that is not for your best and highest good.

*Bonus: That motivational quote was so on point!

I love how our Spirit Guides can lay little bread crumbs on our path such as motivational and inspirational quotes. These are synchronistic happenings that resonate deeply with your soul and what you are going through at the moment you read them. Automatically you know that you were meant to see this. That it was laid in your path just for you. Your Spirit Guides gave you the smallest of inklings to check your Instagram feed or open to a certain page of a book and there it was! This is a sign that your Spirit Guides are around you supporting you and your tribulations, they see and understand what you are going through, even though you may be feeling like you're going it alone.

I hope this has helped you to give you some hints as to when your Spirit Guides are near (which is always) and what they are trying to tell you!
