In my last post, I shared some thoughts about vibrations and particularly how a higher vibration can bring us the power to change our lives in positive ways while negative vibrations such as fear, dislike and anger can have the opposite and adverse effects. There were a lot of potentials to cover in that post, all I did was give the iceberg a nudge and ripple the surrounding waters.

Some might claim that raising your frequency is easy. For others, it’s challenging at best, thanks in part to the experiences that life has thrown our way. Sometimes all we seem able to do is keep bailing water to stop the ship from sinking.

Plugging The Hole

You just have to stop letting it get bigger. Easier said than done; right? But there are a few things that can help and the more you allow and enable them to become habits, the higher your vibration will become. Raising your vibration will help others too because they will become positively infected by you. Paying it forward in action.

Are You Listening?

Not to me, but to your thoughts. By listening, I mean actively listening. What’s going on up there? Are you conscious of the thoughts that drive you through the day or do some of them pass unnoticed as you navigate?


According to the National Science Foundation in the US, a healthy person has between 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. 80% are negative and 95% repetitive. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that If we repeat those negative thoughts, we will think negatives way more than positives.

We need to find ways to manage our thoughts and become conscious of them because higher vibrational happiness really does lie in self-awareness and the ability to listen closely to our thoughts. Everything we think, say, or feel, eventually becomes reality after enough reinforcement through repetition. And with that many thoughts each day, it’s not a lengthy process.

Breathe Deeply

Each time you notice a negative thought; STOP. Close your eyes, breath in through the nose for a few seconds, hold the breath for the same and then allow the breath to rush out through your mouth. Repeat until the negative thought has calmed. Don’t dissect it. When you are ready, continue with your day.

Do Something You Love

Two for me are mountain bike riding and listening to live music. Whatever fires your passion. My favorite music tracks run for 4-minutes on average. Worth every second.


Visualize putting the negative fires out with a powerful hose or destroy them with a feather and making them laugh until they dissolve. Use your amazing imagination.

Repeat Affirmations

“This negative thought no longer serves me. Let it be gone”.


Not a searching for a deep-meaning type of thing that will need a meditation superpower to teach you. Try the ‘Sky Meditation’ I outlined here or search online, there’s plenty of good ones out there.

Take A Power Nap

No need to sleep, just learn how to switch off for a few minutes. The recharge properties are amazing.

Stimulate Your Mind

Read a high vibration book or listen to some uplifting ‘feel-good’ music.


Find something beautiful and appreciate it. There’s no shortage of beauty in this world.

Positive Intentions

Set a positive intention before going to bed. Something simple and positive that you will achieve the next day. Our minds do amazing things while we sleep.

Change Your Focus

Alter what you are looking at, change your environment, even if it’s only for a couple of minutes.

Share The Love

Gratitude, truth and love are high-energy vibrations. Practice these often and do it with compassion.


I’m no expert on this but for good health eat an abundance of foods with high vibration energy and nutrients such as organic nuts, fruit, vegetables and fresh herbs. There are plenty of wonderful folks online and in your local community who can help with that. If you are one of these experts, your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Sorry meat-lovers; eating meat lowers our spiritual energy vibrations. I’m not saying become a vegetarian but consider your intake carefully.

Finally, and with some difficulty, I note that anxiety is associated with lower vibrations. Studies show that coffee is linked to anxiety. Fortunately for me, I have dramatically reduced my coffee intake in the last two years and the positive differences are astounding. I will leave that thought with you.

Raise Your Vibrations, Raise Your Life!


I bow to the place in you that is love, light, and joy
