Create the Right Vibration to Overcome Money Challenges
QUESTION: Today’s question comes from J.B. from PA. She asks: How can I create the right vibration to be rid of money challenges? Thank you J.B. for submitting this great question. I’m sure there are many people who are wondering this as well. (If you have a question you’d like answered subscribe – here).
ANSWER: To create the right vibration so you are “rid of money challenges” you have you think, feel and behave the way a person who has NO money challenges would think, feel and behave.
You have to elevate your emotional vibration above the level of fear, scarcity and worry to the level of joy, appreciation, gratitude and feeling secure. Essentially, you have to become a new person when it comes to the vibrations you emit otherwise you’ll stay in the lower level emotions, thoughts and behaviors and keep creating money situations that are challenging.
Let’s look at an example of how a person who has no financial challenges might be like with money.
- Responsible with money
- Pays bills on time
- Pays off debts or has no debt.
- Has a 6 month emergency fund
- Invests for his/her retirement
- Tracks his/her money and has budget
- Lives within or below his/her means
- Budgets for essential living expenses
- Budgets for entertainment
- Saves up for special purchases.
- Gives generously to others or charity
- Is disciplined and says no to spending when necessary
- Has extra discretionary income each month to “play” with
- Enjoys opening their bills and bank account statements.
After looking over that list what do you think it might “feel like” to be this person?
Would you feel really good? Capable? Confident? Savvy about money? In control of your money? Safe? Secure? Grateful? Generous? Free? Fearless, Happy? Joyful?
It’s likely you’d feel all those things. So, to raise your vibration and overcome your money challenges you must embody the attributes of a person like this and act “as if” you have already overcome your financial difficulties. When your thoughts, feelings and behaviors “match” those of a person who has no financial difficulties your situation around money will shift dramatically for the better.
Follow the three steps below to change your vibration.
3 Steps to raise your vibration and overcome money challenges:
1. Begin a practice of daily meditation on BEING this new person. Top athletes have been doing this for a long time. This practice is called “mental rehearsal.” Commit to going within and imagining with every all your senses how it would feel to be this person who has no money challenges. Create a detailed vision of you living that way and spend at least 15 – 20 minutes a day immersing yourself in this vision. You should come out of your meditation feeling those emotions stated above. If you do this every day your dominant emotions will rise to those shared in the example – and stay there.
2. Start thinking like a person who has their money under control. Ask yourself this question every day: What would a person who has their money situation under control do? And then do it. Would you begin to focus on paying off one bill at a time? Would you polish up your resume and look for a better job? Would you put your expenditures under a microscope and create a budget to live on? Start a savings account and be thrilled to see the balance go up each month? Whatever it is that comes to you each day commit to doing it. The more action you take the faster your vibration will change.
3. Stop allowing your current “reality” to dictate who you are and what you can achieve. What you’re going through does NOT define you. It’s just where you are now. Keep your eye solely focused on your vision, not your current circumstances. This doesn’t mean you don’t address problems in your current reality. You do what needs to be done but you don’t allow your emotions and faith to be pulled down by your current circumstances.
No matter what is happening today in your finances realize it can change and you have the power inside of you to change it. As you change your emotions, thoughts and behaviors around money you do become a new person. You become a person who is very different around money than the person you were before. And as you change inside the reality around you will also change. Absolutely – positively.

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.
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?

“Quantum physics has found that there is no empty space in the human cell, but it is a teeming, electric-magnetic field of possibility or potential” – Dr. Deepak Chopra
Do you constantly feel like life is one uphill battle after another?
Or, do find that you take one step forward only to take two steps back?
If you wake up every morning wanting to roll over and go back to sleep it’s time you tuned into the power of “good vibrations.” (more…)
Have you ever been so happy about something that you couldn’t sit still?
Or, so joyous that you sang out loud before remembering there were other people around? I”m sure it’s happened to each of us at one time or another.
I have a confession – it happens to me more than most.
Whenever I feel excited about the things I’m doing I get a spike in energy that makes me me want to move about. I feel this energy is the vibration of joy itself. I find I can’t sit still, but have to get up and skip, or dance, or throw my arms up in the air and scream, “Yay!” Anything to release the pressure of the energy inside.
I also make up little songs when I’m happy.
I have rhyming button in my head that gets tripped sometimes and out come these little jingles:
Little by little, and day by day, I know everything’s gonna be okay.
Now I know I’m not going to win any music awards with these little jingles, but when the feeling of joy comes over me I have to express it. When I was in elementary school I belonged to the Glee club. We met 2x a week to practice, and put on shows at assembly. Why would they call what was essentially a choir group a Glee club? Singing always puts me in a better mood; you might even call it gleeful.
Some days it’s hard to be happy
The reason I bring this up is because earlier this week I wasn’t feeling so happy. Things have been a tad challenging financially and I was starting to get that sick panicky feeling in the pit of my stomach. I didn’t want to allow myself to wallow in this emotion of fear and I didn’t want it to take such hold of me that I couldn’t shake it off. I decided I better bring up my vibration right away.
I put on some fun music and jumped onto my treadmill and did 30 minutes. I sang at the top of my lungs the whole time and I ended up feeling so good by the end I raced up the basement stairs with my arms outstretched like I’d just won an Olympic medal. Moving and singing made an enormous difference in my mood and outlook. Plus, by the end of the 1/2 hour I was smiling again – and that made me feel terrific too.
Getting dressed for work I kept singing one of my little songs over and over, and you know the day didn’t turn out so bad. I got calls from two new clients and when I came home there was a check in my mailbox. It wasn’t a big check, but still it was money. I know the check would have been there anyway, but I was in such a better mood that I also appreciated it much more too. Tuning into the emotion of joy made me feel more vibrant and alive, and anyone coming in contact with me could feel it too. When you feel life is good – it is.
Moving, singing, dancing and smiling raise our vibration
When you think about it, singing and dancing, or moving are things that make us feel really good. Getting a smile from someone or giving a smile also increases our happiness. These things not only lift our spirits but raise our energy or frequency levels. Each emotion has it’s own frequency as well. I don’t think there’s anyone who would disagree that there’s a marked difference between being around someone who’s joyous and someone who’s depressed. The frequency level that we emit has everything to do with how other people respond to us. I’m much more attracted to be around the joyous person, aren’t you?
Love and joy are two of the highest emotions anyone of us can experience and the frequency they emit is much higher than emotions such as anger, or fear. No wonder we can’t sit still when we’re really excited about something – the vibration of joy is so much faster that it makes us want to move.
Release your inner tuning fork!
When you emit the frequency of joy you’re tuning in to one of the highest the vibrations in the Universe. You lock into that frequency and move in the universal flow where all is perfection. Syncing up to this vibration opens the floodgates to your good by aligning your frequency with pure goodness the true the essence of life.
So, the next time you find your spirits sinking, or you just want to whip up some instant good remember these simple tips:
1. Put on some lively music
2. Start singing. Don’t be shy – belt it out!
3. Or make up your own happy jingle.
2. Then move those feet and dance until you feel you’re whole body is smiling.
You will feel better – and you’re day will go better when you’re a joy magnet. Try it and share how it affected your day.
How could focusing on the joy in life make a difference in your life? Have you tried this? What happened?

I want to thank fellow blogger, Daylle Deanna Schwartz for being the inspiration for this post. I subscribe to her wonderful blog: Lessons From A Recovering Doormat She wrote a great post about generating emotion and gratitude when working with the Law of Attraction, and I left a comment on her blog in which I referred to my doing a little “jig of joy” when I’m happy – which spurred this post. Thanks Daylle!
