Whether to merge with conscious radiance, help our body sweetly glow, feed the flower of our emotion, or lift our thoughts to heal and grow; when we elevate the range of our vibrations, there is more for us to know.
Raising our vibration is elevating our conscious awareness to higher levels, broader perspectives, deeper views. If we go to medical school and become a physician, and then hear someone talking about their gastric paresis while out to dinner with a date, what we hear will generate a cascade of information based on the knowledge we assimilated while in school. If our date has no formal medical training, then their interpretation of the comment will be based on their life experiences or colloquialisms they have read about. The 12-14 years of academic and practical training create a relatively broad knowledge base from which information naturally flows when contextually stimulated (a little like asking Siri a question). But both the doctor and Siri examples represent more of a linear, binary view. Now imagine ever-broadening spirals engaging limitless dimensions in their expansion; spirals of spiritual awareness connecting with dimensions of truth. As these whirling coils expand through the cosmos, they leave everything human behind. The dimensions of truth they expansively circle through reveal that time, place, and even space are human illusions. At the highest, or broadest level; or at the smallest scale; we find universal consciousness forming infinite pools of coexisting possibilities from which creation occurs. When we, as humans, learn to access this level of awareness, we can literally create, or co-create the life we long for; as long as this life serves the greater good.
Since the human mind is the tool we must use to get started in this process, and also the crutch we want to eventually leave behind; we need to conceptualize our approach in a way the mind can understand. So let’s take a look at how to raise the vibration of our thoughts, words, and actions.
Raising the Vibration of Our Thoughts
Thoughts are the foundation of emotions, words, and actions; and are perhaps the hardest to identify or clearly see; so let’s start with them. What makes them difficult to pin down is our ego. It is the mind within our mind, or the voice within our head. It has its own agenda, and is not under our direction. We often confuse it with who we are, and believe that its voice is our voice. But it is not. It is our false self. Our true self is our spirit. Our ego will often obscure the truth in order to sustain itself. It will generate myriads of distractions, obsessions, and issues to keep us where it wants us. For instance, if we have discovered a spiritual connection with someone special, someone with whom we share harmonizing energy and natural love; our ego will do its best to sabotage it, because through this spiritual connection our ego could disappear. Of course this would be a dream come true, in many ways; but the ego’s only focus is preserving and strengthening itself. So, even if everything is amazing when we are with them, as soon as we are gone, our ego will begin working on us. It may cause us to doubt ourselves and our judgement. It may try to find something wrong or bad about them. It might do this by triggering issues like trust, control, inadequacy, or unfairness. It might prompt us to overanalyze everything about the person, until we come up with something wrong with them. It could also try to tell us that we don’t really have time for a relationship, even though this is what we really want, and could obviously make time for if we wanted to. It might try to tell us that we need to find ourselves first, and that starting a relationship would keep us from doing this; even though a loving relationship could be what helps make it happen. It could also try to convince us that we need to prove ourselves, our ability to assert our independence; and that if we got in a relationship, we would be relying on someone else, or would just be someone else’s girlfriend or boyfriend; even though independence is an adolescent human illusion (we are all interdependent). Or it might take a different tactic, and encourage us to believe that they are perfect, can do no wrong; and then once we have invested in this belief, find something to shatter our illusion. The ego is powerful and tricky, and should not be underestimated. It controls or influences most of what we think, say, and do; until we learn to recognize and remove it.
So to raise the vibration of our thoughts, we need to find the truth, at whatever level of awareness we are at, and focus only on this truth. At first it might be something as basic as “there is hope.” When we are beyond the reaches of negative emotions, it could include chants, mantras, meditation, mindfulness, and songs. It might involve relishing the beauty of a flower, absorbing the peace and power of the ocean, or joying in the magic of a dog. It would include loving wishes, joyful thoughts, peaceful promises, and truthful reflections; all related to the greater good of creation. If anything dark, doubtful, or negative enters our thoughts, we can simply shift our focus to something based in love, joy, peace, or truth. As we become aware of deeper and broader truth, through the raising of our vibration, then there will be more of these things to focus on, and fewer of the lower vibrational distractions. Eventually, our conscious awareness will be vibrating at a frequency that is too high to register, or notice, lower vibrational things; unless we intentionally and strategically shift our focus to allow for them. There is great freedom in this, but it is often hard for others to relate to us. This gives us more motivation to help others raise their vibration too!
Raising the Vibration of Our Words
So, building upon the last section, we want to make sure our words are based in love, joy, peace, and truth. We want to be as kind, caring, selfless, and giving as possible through the things we say. We want to offer words of acceptance, encouragement, support, and hope. We want both the energetic and sound vibrations of the words we speak to create beauty, inspiration, trust, faith, and goodness. We want our words to offer gifts of patience, gentleness, sensitivity, and balance. If we need to confront someone with potentially painful feedback, then we want to do it with as much dignity, grace, and love as possible. Again, we want our words to vibrate at the frequencies of love, joy, peace, and truth. The higher our vibration, the more these words will become the norm, as the lower vibrational ones fade away.
Raising the Vibration of Our Actions
For our actions, we could do the same things suggested for our words above, and just plug in the things we do, in place of the things we say.
