What Does Raising Your Vibration Do?

Raise Your Vibration

What does raising your vibration do? 

First, I want to thank J.B., the Powered by Intuition community member who submitted his question on this fascinating topic. If you have a question you’d like me to answer subscribe to PBI here so you can send it to me.

What does Raising Your Vibration Mean?

To raise your vibration is to overcome your negative emotions. The  emotions of Courage, Acceptance, Tolerance, Love, and Joy are higher on the emotional scale as opposed to Anger, Revenge, Violence, Hate, Resentment, Judgement, Criticism, Apathy, Depression, Guilt, Fear,  and Anxiety. When you’re free of those heavy dark emotions your “vibration” naturally rises to the lighter positive emotions. When your dominant emotions are at the higher levels you’re not held back by your fears and live up to your potential.

Why do we call it “vibrations?”

You are “alive” because of the electromagnetic impulses that cause your heart to beat, lungs to pump and brain to process information. The energy being emitted from your body can be mapped out by attaching electrodes to your head or chest. When you are in a state of distress the rhythm of these electromagnetic impulses goes from steady to erratic. And if you’ve died those rhythms are “flatlined.”

Your emotional state affects the rhythm of these electromagnetic pulsations or frequencies. Dr. David R. Hawkins, author of “Power Vs. Force” mapped out the human emotions from the lowest to the highest using muscle testing. His work shows that when we feel “low” or “down and out” or in a “dark place” the energy we emit from those corresponding down and dark emotions is also moving or “vibrating” more slowly.

Why Raise Your Vibration?

Raising your vibration to the higher positive emotions energizes you. You feel more alive, happier and joyful and you actually are more alive because you’re healthier. You have more life force energy running through your body than someone who is depressed, or angry all the time. Dwelling in the negative emotional states is a precursor to many diseases.

When your general emotional state is positive you’re enthusiastic about life and there’s a “lightness” about you. You’re aware of your purpose and more easily live it. You have more confidence and faith in yourself and deal with any challenges that arise more effectively. You feel more in control of your life and positive about your future and in general your life is pretty good. You attract positive people and fortunate circumstances into to your life because “like attracts like.” People genuinely like and want to be around you.

Negativity Disempowers

Have you ever noticed that no matter how hard you try you cannot be around someone who stays in those dark negative emotions for too long a period? It’s hard to spend too much time around people who see themselves as victims all the time with every excuse as to why “they can’t,” complainers, angry people who blame others for everything, judgmental people and critical people. It’s too draining. After a while you just want to avoid them not just because it’s unpleasant or depressing but because their low energy state siphons off some of your life energy.

When you’re around a person who thinks like a victim or feels helpless or hopeless it’s a cry for help whether they’re aware of it or not. Their neediness leeches energy from you and you sense it. This is not to say we shouldn’t be compassionate and help others, it’s just to illustrate why you feel drained after spending time around someone in one of these states.

Raise your Vibration

To raise your vibration commit to becoming aware of your thoughts and emotions and have a daily practice of clearing the negative ones. The goal is to begin to expand awareness of your thoughts and emotions so that you can nip these trips down to the lower depths in the bud. This way you’ll spend less time in the darker emotions before you bounce back up. After a while if you’re serious and diligent about your practice, you may only spend a few moments in anger, self-pity or depression (to name a few), before the higher emotions kick back in

How to Raise Your Vibration in 5 Steps

Step 1: Discipline  your self to become aware of your thoughts and feelings. This is a must. Your thoughts and feelings can be trained but only if you take the time to become aware of them first. Create the intention to do this. Keep a journal and write about the the darker and emotions you had during the day. To “snap out of it” in the moment each time you catch yourself going down the rabbit  hole tell your self to “STOP!.

Step 2: De-stress and decompress. Meditate daily to release built up pressure so you can return to a calm centered state. Any form of meditation that slows the mental chatter works. Meditation helps you become aware of your thoughts and emotions.

Step 3: Retrain your thoughts and emotions. As you become aware of the negative thinking patterns and corresponding emotions that are pulling you down make a list of them. Go through each one and apply logic and reason to deflate and refute each one.

It’s the relentless intrusive thoughts that push people down into the depths of the lower emotions. And for the most part what those intrusive thoughts peddle is untrue! That’s why you’ve got to take back control of your mind by deflating those inner negative voices with logic. When you deflate the inner demons you will see things more realistically and your perception will shift. A Course In Miracles defines a miracle as a shift in perception because when you see things differently – things change.

Step 4: Release judgement and blaming. When you stop judging others you will no longer attract critical people who judge you. When you stop blaming and making excuses you begin taking responsibility for everything in your life. That’s a huge step up on the emotional scale. As your awareness of your thoughts and emotions grows you’re able to corral them back up to the higher levels before they can drag you down. Your thoughts and feelings are no longer “unconscious” where they can make you react on autopilot.

Step 5: Forgive yourself and everyone. It takes a lot of energy to hold onto resentments, anger and blame. When you don’t forgive it’s because somehow you think that withholding forgiveness is punishing the other person but the truth is it’s hurting you not them. It’s keeping you frozen in the lower emotions and in unhappiness.

One of the biggest obstacles to forgiving is pride. If you hear yourself thinking “How dare SHE or HE!” That is your pride keeping you stuck because of your need to be right. When you forgive your emotional state will rise to the higher levels and you’ll feel happy again.

Which of the negative emotions has been most problematic for you? Can you see how it’s suppressing your happiness? Are you ready to commit to the daily practice of raising your vibration?

How To Break Through the Wall of Your Comfort Zone

How To Break Through the Wall of Your Comfort Zone

Break through the wall of your comfort zone.Beyond the edge of your comfort zone is where you will find your greatness!

Is there a goal you’ve been struggling to achieve or a life change you long to make?

Have you tried and tried and yet nothing seems to change?

Are you so frustrated that you’re ready to give up because nothing is working?

Wait! Don’t walk away from your dreams yet. I have good news for you.

Hitting the invisible wall

The reason nothing has changed or seems to to work is because you’ve hit an invisible wall. The invisible wall is the place you reach when you come to edge of your comfort zone. So, don’t feel bad or as if you weren’t meant to achieve your goal. What is happening to you is normal and natural. You just need a bit of guidance.

Deconstructing the wall

The invisible wall at the edge of your comfort zone is what stops you from taking the big steps you need to take to bring your greatest dreams into being. Everyone including me has a comfort zone.

Your comfort zone is the place where you achieve things easily. Goals feel scalable because you’ve done similar things and accomplished them easily. You whip up and finish projects without a second thought because the process is familiar to you.

But when you reach the edge of your comfort zone and go to do something completely new you freeze. The smooth reaction that would normally take you to the next step doesn’t come naturally like you expect it to. Instead you feel confused and overwhelmed, flooded with doubt, anxiety and fear. Does this sound familiar?

Every time you attempt to take the new step the fears of not knowing exactly what to do or how it will turn out stop you. You feel like a deer caught in the headlights and panic and retreat. The more you “try” the more firmly you embed the fear and anxiety of taking the next step.

Overtime this reaction contributes to making the wall even more impenetrable. Your fearful reaction and retreat become a self-defeating behavior that holds you back. You internalize the belief that you “can’t do it” and feel deflated as your confidence level decreases. The more you repeat this process the bigger the wall becomes until you have talked yourself into believing that this goal you dreamed about was never meant for you anyway and you give up.

The trap of Try, Fear, Retreat

If you don’t know how to break the cycle, Try, Fear, Repeat will become an endless loop in your life. This behavior will burn such a deep neural pathway into your brain that it will become an unconscious behavior pattern. When a set of reactions is this ingrained within us the pattern takes over with lightening speed before we can consciously think about doing anything differently.

Here’s an example: Can you recall a time, perhaps many, when you drove somewhere and then later realized you had no memory of actually doing the driving? You realize that you drove there on “auto-pilot.” This is exactly what happens to us when we repeat a certain set of behaviors over and over; they become an auto responsive pattern. The pattern is so deeply imbedded that it bypasses your conscious awareness.

In the case of trying to go past the edge of your comfort zone, each time you try and feel the old fears kicking in and retreat you reinforce this self-defeating pattern. And the worst part is that you end up feeling like a failure.

The good news!

Hitting this wall is normal and happens to most people. There is nothing wrong with you. There is a way to breakthrough the wall of your comfort zone. And success awaits you on the other side.

You can break the cycle of Try, Fear, Retreat with this 5 step system:

1. Write it out. List the exact steps you need to take. This is an important part of breaking through the wall of your comfort zone so don’t skip it. You need to create an outline so that you will be familiar with the next step and not freeze with fear. After you have the list chunk it down into daily actions so that it isn’t overwhelming to you. Read over your list and be completely familiar with it. If you want more information on this I wrote extensively about this process in, The Intuition Principle: How to Attract the Life You Dream Of.”

2. Deflate your fears. The best way to let all the air out of your fear is to ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that could happen here?” followed by, “So how can I prepare so that this doesn’t happen?”

For example say you want to quit your job and pursue your writing but you’re scared to give up your steady salary. Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” You respond with, “I’ll go broke, lose my house and end up homeless.”

Then ask yourself, “How can I prepare so that this doesn’t happen?” In response you say, “I’m going to save up the amount of money I’ll need to pay my mortgage for one year before I quit. I will give myself eight months to get my writing career started. If after eight months I don’t see things working out I will start looking for a job.” When fear paralyzes you go back to this step.

You get the picture. You’re answers will be different but the outcome will be the same. You will nip your fear in the bud before it can paralyze you into not taking action on your dream.

3. Visualize. Use your imagination to create a vivid 5 minute movie at least twice a day. I suggest once in the morning and before going to bed. See yourself living out your goal in every detail. What you’re doing is rehearsing and slowly erasing the negative pattern you previously embedded. Burn this positive outcome into your brain so that it creates a deep neural pathway and a new pattern of success!

4. Push yourself. Repeat this mantra, “I can and I am!” with conviction. Focus on one step on your outline and take action every day. No great thing was ever created without effort, overcoming fear and pushing through barriers. Just do it! Each time you take a step toward your goal you are taking a brick out of the wall at the edge of your comfort zone and you’re building your confidence.

5. Get support. It’s okay to ask for help. When you get support be it through a mentor, friend or with a coach you increase the likelihood of your success. Working with a someone who believes in you to achieve your goals will significantly increase your chances of attaining it over those who try to go it alone. (If you have a burning desire to get where you want to go contact me for a life purpose reading to discuss your vision.)

Are you stuck in the loop of try, fear, retreat? Would you benefit from support? Share with us in the comments.

8 Ways to Heal Pain and Release Your Incredible Power (and a quiz!)

8 Ways to Heal Pain and Release Your Incredible Power (and a quiz!)

Heal emotional pain

How emotional pain imprisons you

Pain springs from many sources. Most common is a loss of some type such as the loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of job and income, loss of your health, loss of sense of self and the loss of a way of life you previously had such as through divorce. The source of the emotional pain may be different but the results are the same; imprisonment by your pain.

Pain holds you hostage. When you’ve been wounded deeply the result is trauma and standing still with your life for fear of being open and vulnerable to more pain. Pain keeps us frozen in place for years unless it’s addressed. Is your emotional pain paralyzing you?

Measure your pain.. Take the quiz:

1. Have you suffered incredible loss such as the losing someone close to you, lost a job/career, income, financial stability, your health, gone through a divorce?

2. Do you long to change your life but feel afraid of stepping into the  unknown?

3. Do you yearn for a greater, bigger more fulfilling life?

4. Do you feel confused about your direction?

5. Are you overwhelmed because you’re working harder than ever before?

6. Does your indecisiveness lead you to contemplate giving up at times?

7. Are you uncomfortable opening up and asking for help?

8. If you were to review your life over the last few years would you notice not much has changed?

If you said yes to two or more of these questions your emotional pain is holding you back from achieving your goals and living a life you love.

How pain paralyzed me

After the economic melt down in 2008 my income declined dramatically. The following year it declined again and every year after that. I went from spending without a care to living in lock-down mode not buying a thing I didn’t have to. I sold my home to conserve my resources. If I had stayed in my house I would have burned through a retirement account it had taken me twenty plus years to acquire.

The industry I was in was decimated by the financial crisis. I frantically applied for jobs in other industries only to be turned down. No one would hire me because I had no experience outside of this one area.

I didn’t know what to do with myself to rebuild my income. I remained in the industry I knew just to stay afloat and changed employers a few times hoping things would get better. By the time I was making some money again I had lost interest in my career and it became a huge chore to do it again day in and day out. But I so feared not having an income that I remained stuck by refusing to walk away from my job for the “security” it gave me. Then one day I woke up and knew I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Release your emotional pain

I realized I had allowed my pain to imprison me in a life I didn’t love. My fear of loss of income kept me working full time. Every other spare minute was spent writing and publishing and having private sessions with clients. Honestly, I didn’t think I was going to make it through some days. I had too much to do, too many obligations and responsibilities, too little time and no support.

The moment I comprehended what my emotional pain was doing to me I had a mental shift and opened to the possibility of reaching out for help. I saw that “staying afloat” was not the same as living. I allowed myself to begin dreaming again and I remembered that I had big dreams.

Empower yourself

Connecting to my pain and seeing how much it was costing me to “stay afloat” in order to avoid the fear of the unknown empowered me and turned on the “lightbulb above my head.”

“Your wound is the place where light enters you.” –Rumi

I realized that my fears about the loss of money had kept me stuck at a certain level for far too long. I committed right then to do things differently from that moment on. I felt my enthusiasm for life returning. The next day I woke up excited about the prospect of changing my life.

The more enthused I became about playing full out and going after what I wanted the more wonderful opportunities came to me. By not being afraid any longer I had released a flood of power that had been frozen inside of me. This wave moved me forward smoothly, easily and most effortlessly.

Realizing how your emotional pain has been holding you hostage can inspire an epiphany and empower you to move forward just as easily too. You just need to know the system to be released from your pain and have those prison gates open.

The simple 8 step method for releasing the power trapped beneath your pain:

1. Acknowledge the pain. Sometimes the pain is too great. You don’t want to look at it because looking at it opens the wounds again. The problem is that cramming a painful memory way down is not a solution. The pain is frozen mass inside that blocks the circulation of life energy. Bringing it up to the surface of your awareness where you can heal is what releases the power to move forward in your life.

2. Forgive. Forgive yourself and anyone else whom you believe may have contributed to the situation. For example, I was angry about what happened in my industry and about how my my lucrative career had been taken away. To find who or what to forgive look to what you’re angry about. Forgiveness frees you from dragging this painful burden around with you. It gives you permission to live again!

3. Be grateful. Find the good in everything. There is always a silver lining no matter how things appear. For example, now I see that had my industry not imploded I would not have had the opportunity to grow and change. I wouldn’t have developed the desire to have my own business either. It’s actually been a great lesson. Where you can you be grateful and find the good in your own situation?

4. Focus on what you want. The more attention you give to the things you don’t like or want in your life the more of your awareness they consume. Start thinking about what you do want instead. Allow yourself to dream and dream big! When a situation or condition arises that you would rather not have in  your life ask yourself what you would like instead? Play that scenario over in your mind rather than the one you dislike.

5. Claim your good! Staying afloat is not living and it is certainly not claiming the good the Universe has in store for you. When we allow our pain to paralyze us we live each day just to get through it. This fearful attitude keeps our good at bay. You are here to live up to your highest potential and to have, be and do whatever you desire but you have to claim your good. To claim your good believe you deserve to live a better life.

6. Tame your fears. I love this quote from Mark Twain: “I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.” The truth is that most of what we fear never happens. Fear is imaginary and keeps us from jumping fully into our lives. Make a vow to stop worrying and listening to your fears.

7. Listen to your intuition – it knows the way. Your intuition is that voice inside that keeps nudging you to be more, to live up to your potential and go after what you want. If you follow your intuition you will not fail to bring forth the exciting life you dream of. You stop listening to your intuition when you allow your fear to be the predominant voice you listen to. You wouldn’t have this voice inside pulling you toward accomplishing certain things if you already didn’t possess the capability and power to achieve them.

8. Get support. There’s a mystique especially in Western culture that upholds the lone individual as a hero and role model. It’s not the reality. Everyone needs support. Everyone needs community. Everyone needs to learn from more successful people. Find a mentor, hire a coach or join a mastermind. The truth is if you could have done it alone you would have done it already, right?

What power would you release if you dealt with your pain? What has holding onto your pain really cost you? Join the conversation. Leave a comment.

Surrender and Let Go to Find Peace & Restore Hope

Surrender and Let Go to Find Peace & Restore Hope

Letting GO Banner for Alex Blackwell Book

Today I’m excited to share a new collaborative book: “Letting Go: 25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender,” from Alex Blackwell of The Bridgmaker.

Alex has put together a collection of stories from many writers around the theme of “letting go.”

I read the book and found it very uplifting. One of the best reasons to read the book is to see that you are not alone. Everyone will go through a dark night of the soul at one point in life because that is how we grow and learn to handle problems.

If you need some inspiration I recommend it.

.
Alex, what gave you the idea for the book?
10 years ago it was clear that I had to let go of fear, shame and guilt if my marriage was going to survive.

For the first 18 years of my marriage, I was insecure, thinking that my wife, Mary Beth, was going to leave me. My obsession put pressure on her to tell me constantly, and show me, that she loved me.

My insecurities were born back in my childhood. As a child of an alcohol parent, I thought I was the reason my mother drank – I thought it was my fault and I thought it was impossible to be loved authentically and unconditionally.

To save my marriage, I had to start learning to let go of these negative attachments and embrace the life in front of me. By letting go of the pain, shame and guilt a little at a time, Mary Beth started seeing the positive changes in me.

Last June, we celebrated our 28th anniversary. We’ve never been happier – I’ve never been happier.

So, the inspiration behind this book is to celebrate the amazing and life-changing gifts that letting go provides.

Who should read the book?
25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender is for anyone who wants to put a painful memory or experience in the past. It’s also for people who are holding on too tightly to their children, even though it may be time to let them go.

The book doesn’t offer a formula or guide for letting go, it just offers the inspiration and encouragement needed to begin the process.

I also think there is value in reading about the experience of others so you won’t feel alone with how your experiences. The stories in the book will elicit an emotional response because each one is filled with honesty, truth and hope.

Do you share a “true story?”
I do.

My story appears in Part Four – Letting Go: Parenting. The title of the story is World – I Present My Daughter.

It’s about the day my older daughter, Caitlin, graduated from college. That day was full of so much pride and happiness. It was also a bittersweet day because I knew my daughter belonged to the world now, and not just to my family.

Even though her mother and I have always encouraged her to make a life of her own, when that day actually came, it was harder than I thought. But by realizing I had to let go, allowed Caitlin and me to begin building a wonderful adult relationship that is growing stronger each day.

What bonuses are you offering people who purchase your book?
I’m happy to give everyone who purchases Letting Go: 25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender, the Peace and Balance Book Bonus Pack. This bonus pack provides 10 free tools from some inspirational people. Highlights include:

  • Guy Finely: You will receive Guy’s popular course, Seven Steps to Oneness: Journey to a Whole New Life, which is a FREE 8-hour course on 8 MP3 downloads. During this groundbreaking audio program you will discover, explore, and learn to work with timeless principles that will help you to empower the evolution of your soul.
  • Tiny Buddha: Book purchasers will get Lori Deschene’s Tiny Wisdom, On Mindfulness. Part of the Tiny Wisdom eBook series from tinybuddha.com, this book shares 20 short reminders for a more present, peaceful life.
  • Andrea Owen: Andrea shares her book, How I Turned My Mess into My Message, detailing exactly how she came from a place of darkness, despair and self-loathing, to a place of happiness, self-confidence and self-love.

How does someone receive the Peace and Balance Book Bonus Pack?
It’s easy. Simply email the Amazon purchase confirmation email to: bookbonus@thebridgemaker.com.

How is your book different from the thousands of other self-help books on the market?
As I mentioned earlier, this book isn’t intended to be a how-to guide or a self-help manual full of obvious advice, it’s a transparent, and sometimes raw, look at real-life experiences that have nudged people to let go of negative attachments that were no longer serving them.

I think there’s value, and a sense of connectedness when we discover that we aren’t walking alone.

What’s next for you?
I will continue learning how to let go of the things that keep me from enjoying life to the fullest. It’s a daily choice to do this. Some days I stumble and hold on to the garage a little too tight; and on some days I throw it as far away from me as I can, but on all days I attempt to move forward with dignity, self-respect and lots of hope.

I will also continue to share inspiration at my blog, The BridgeMaker.

As far as my next book? It will be fiction, a novel, but a novel with message that is rooted in the themes that most important to me like forgiveness, seeking positive change and of course, letting go.

What challenges are you currently facing in life? Can you see how letting go of what is out of your control could help you to experience more peace?

Why did you create it?

I understand what it is like to be paralyzed by fear. In the past, I made mistakes, I spent my time freaked out, playing small, denying and hiding from fear.

I sunk into depression and I hated my life.  One day, when I couldn’t stand the pain, craziness or drama any longer… I reached out for help. I hired a therapist, attended a support group, found a mentor, hired a coach and put into practice what I learned.

Little by little, I turned my life around. I created a new story.  The payoff of my post-fear life…I raised my family, I saved my marriage, became a successful therapist, a coach, an author, a professional speaker, a blogger, a writer…I achieved things I never would have thought possible.

It’s the culmination of everything I’ve learned. I’m still asked, “How do you do it?” 30 Days of Bold is my answer. You only need to apply it to your own situation. Not only does 30 Days of Bold offer the tools to move beyond fear, it offers a map to self-love, faith in oneself, risk-taking, to positively anticipate your future and achieve a deeper appreciation of life and everything in it. We often look up to brave, bold and successful people. It’s time to become one of them!

In the end, I’ve been blessed with very loving and brilliant mentors and teachers throughout my lifetime. It’s my turn to give.

Who is 30 Days to Bold for? 

Anyone who is tired of false beliefs, facades and wants to live authentically.

Anyone needing practical tools and concrete tips on how to grab hold of their fears—with a sense of power, excitement and bold.

Anyone who is interested in joining a community of people who are not waiting for “someday” to change their lives.

Anyone who wants to overcome excuses, rejection and failure and move from victim to creator.

Anyone who wants to loosen the grip of doubt and tap into their inner resources.

Anyone who is sick and tired of paralyzing fear and is ready for greater and deeper success, love and happiness.

If you are ready to:

Get clear and commit to what you really want for yourself. Make fear work for you instead of against you. Go from imagining the worst to expecting the best. Unearth your innate strength and freedom. Find a sense of safety while living in a world of fear. Step beyond your limitations and experience your true self. Be confident. Live without apology, explanation or apprehension. Receive encouragement and friendship from a supportive community. Then this course is for you!

What are the benefits for those who enroll and participate in 30 Days of Bold? Is it life changing?

It is life-changing if you do the exercises, watch the videos, get involved in the community and apply what you learn.

Anais Nin said, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Once you change your life, there is no going back. You may fall back but you can’t stay back. It’s impossible.

How did you become so bold?

I grew up on a produce farm with nine siblings. We were all very competitive for our parents love and attention. It was speak up or lose out. We also began working in the fields and at the Farmer’s Market as young children.  At the market, we learned how to sell and turn our customers into friends! We became experts in sales by age 13! That’s a childhood of bold action.

How can we develop courage?

Be willing take action. Make a difference and use your talent and gifts to make the world a better place. Things will go wrong. So what? You’ll make mistakes. So what? You will be rejected. So what?

Keep going, ask for help, find support and be willing to do what it takes.

“I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back.” ~Erica Jong  

30 Days of Bold offers you the safety and support of a loving community. You don’t have to go it alone.

What do you hope that people will take away after completing the course?

I want them to see that they are not alone and that there is nothing wrong with them. We all fail, we all make mistakes and we all have flaws. I want them to own their power and innate goodness. I want them to use their innate courage and have faith in themselves. I want to see them use their gifts, talents and to offer them to others along the path. When one of us succeeds, we all succeed in making the world a better place to live!
