Managing your vibration – simple techniques for increasing intuition and awareness

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” 
~ Nikola Tesla

Our thoughts and emotions have a strong impact on our vibrationary level. Know what I mean by that?  Try this. Think of a time when someone or something really upset you.  Go back to that time and relive it in your mind.  Feel your body become tense and your heart rate increase.  Feel the anger or sadness or whatever other predominant emotion you may recall begin to flood your consciousness.

By invoking these thoughts and emotions you have consciously lowered your rate of vibration.  Negative self-talk will have the same effect.  Telling yourself that you are dumb, fat or not good enough rockets you into a lower vibration.  So does listening to people who talk down to you or show you a lack of love and respect.  Environments can have the same effect.  Is there anywhere or anyone that makes you feel uncomfortable?  Pay attention to how this affects your life, your thoughts and your actions.

Close your eyes and think of a time when you have felt positive, successful, happy or victorious.  Feel the love of someone close, or of an adored pet.  Imagine a beautiful place or natural environment.  Notice how you begin to feel expansive, calm, happy, joyful and powerful.  This is you moving to a higher vibration.

You have done all of this just with the power of your mind!

Now that you understand how this works, you can begin to consciously work with this power to lift your vibration and help you feel good about yourself.  As our vibration raises we become more spiritually and psychically aware, and can more easily access our intuition and psychic gifts. It also enhances our body’s ability to heal.

Vibrationary triggers

Make a note in your journal of things you can use to help raise your conscious vibration.  Experiment with clothes, colours and food – see how these affect your mood and self-image.  What makes you smile?  Fresh flowers, a happy baby, a hug, a note from a friend, or maybe your favourite music?  Place things in your environment that are positive emotional triggers, and that hold happy memories or thoughts.  Practice telling yourself how much you love YOU (this can be a hard one – but keep trying!) and remind yourself of your good qualities and talents, no matter how small.  Remove items that have negative associations.  Whenever you find yourself feeling anxious or upset or angry STOP!  Breathe….  Centre yourself (see info below).  Remind yourself of the blessings in your life.  Tell yourself that you are powerful and that you choose how you live in this moment.  Breathe in LOVE and breathe out negativity.  It works!

Centering

Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for at least ten minutes.  Sit or lie quietly and focus on your breathing.  Take slow, deep breaths.  Gradually you will feel yourself calming and becoming more relaxed.  You will have an awareness of your body and mind.  This is a meditation technique called ‘centering’.  Centering is all about bringing our conscious awareness back to a place of calm.  Feel your energy within your body.  You may want to visualise it as a white or golden ball of Light within your abdomen or around your heart.

Notice any tensions and consciously let go of them, encouraging deeper and deeper relaxation.  Know that any time, and at any place, you can bring your energy back to a place of centeredness just by taking a few conscious deep slow breaths and imagining that ball of Light within you.  When you are centred you call back all of your scattered energy, and it helps you to remain calm and to be in your Power.  Being centred encourages good decisions and fosters intuition and integrity.

We can’t control the world around us, but we can make conscious choices about what we choose to focus on, and what thoughts we fill our minds with.  It is worth the effort to manage our vibration – feeling good always leads to improvements and new opportunities in the world around us.

Sending you all good thoughts and intentions for you to move to a place of better flow and awareness. Nicole  xx

A week-long course in journalling – Day 5

One of the most powerful laws I have ever come to understand is that the Universe unfolds before us based upon vibration – influenced by the energy of our thoughts and intentions and the emotions we attach to those thoughts and intentions.

Whatever you give the most thought to, and whatever thoughts you attach the most emotion to, appear in your life as situations, opportunities, relationships and objects.  The clearer the thought, the stronger the emotion, the faster it turns up in your life.

Even more interesting is the concept that like attracts like.  You know how that goes… Think an angry thought and another one follows.  Something shows up in your day to escalate that mood of crankiness.  Conversely, when you are happy, and in a space of being grateful for what is already in your life, more of that good stuff shows up!

The more you find to be happy about, the more you'll notice good things appear in your life.

Day 5 – Practising Gratitude

Our journal is a perfect place to begin exploring the many things in our life for which we can already be grateful. Sometimes, when we are at our lowest, this can be hard to do.  Especially if we haven’t been in the habit of practising gratitude. But once we start to look; at today, and the days that have gone before these, there is always something that made us smile, something that made us feel good, and something to be grateful for now.

Often these things are unexpected gifts.  They usually have nothing to do with conventional ideas of wealth or success… A beautiful sunrise, a baby’s laugh, a favourite song coming on the radio at just the right time, a good cup of tea, a walk on the beach. One of the most powerful ways to create positive shift in your life, and to connect you into greater flow, is to live in a space of gratitude for these things.

I am always grateful for the natural environment, and the many places of beauty that surround us

Task for the day:

Make yourself a cuppa as you sit at home in your pyjamas, take yourself to a favourite coffee shop, pour yourself a juice and head into the garden – whatever you do, today find somewhere comfortable to sit with your journal, and have something to drink at your elbow.  That’s the lovely thing about journals.  You can take them anywhere.

Sit for a minute, and get happy.  Find something to think about that makes you smile. Then when you’re ready, start writing about things that make you feel good, things you are grateful for, things that make you feel better about yourself, the world and the future.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a short list or a long one.  And this is a list that you can keep adding to over time, for each new day brings its own blessings.

Yesterday we wrote about the importance of Daring to Dream.  By focusing your thoughts and emotions on things that you can feel positive and grateful for today, you begin to create an energy that attracts more experiences, adventures, opportunities and relationships into your life that will match these feelings generated as you practise gratitude.

The following clip has a great wisdom about gratefulness, and shows us where to start when we aren’t sure that we can begin.

Open your heart to the many miracles and blessings already in your life, and pour that energy onto the page  ♥
