Let’s define vibration. One definition is rapid, rhythmic movement back and forth or quivering. I prefer a more informal definition that resonates with me the best. Vibration can also be defined as emotional qualities that are sensed or felt by another person or thing. As stated in the above image, everything vibrates , but at different frequencies. Even inanimate objects do. Frequency is directly related to vibration. Frequency is the rate of vibration and movement measured over a specific period of time. Think about your car radio. When you search for your favorite radio station, you turn your radio dial to a specific frequency to find it. In a very similar way, the situations that we find ourselves as well as the people that show up in our lives is based on our vibrational frequency. Our emotional state is tied to a frequency. Let’s check out the chart below:
The higher the number, the higher the frequency.Notice how the more negative emotions vibrate at lower frequencies. Think of emotion as energy in motion. Your emotional state determines the frequency that you vibrate. For example, if you are constantly vibrating at a frequency of anger, you will experience situations and interactions with others that foster that emotion in you. It’s like you send out an energy signal to all of the situations and people that will piss you off. This doesn’t necessarily happen immediately, but with consistency , negative situations tend to appear. The same can be concerning positive emotions. You can raise your vibrational frequency by fostering more positive emotions such as gratitude. Regardless of what life appears to be like at the moment. you can find something to be grateful for. I see gratitude as a gateway emotion to any and all positve emotions. Practicing gratitude every day can have a dramatic effect on your default emotional state that you find yourself in. A good exercise to start is a gratitude journal. Each day, take a moment to write down the things, situations and people in your life that you are grateful for. That is one of numerous strategies for raising your vibrational frequency. In the near future, I will write a blog post on that exact topic. With practice and awareness, you can change your frequency which , in turn, changes your experiences. Consistency is the key. This is where discipline is crucial for success. With practice, you can train your mind to find the good in all circumstances. It is simple, but not necessarily easy. Nevertheless, it is possible. Until next time….
