5 Ways Your Life Experiences Affect Your Vibration
What we experience in life has a direct impact on our energy and vibration levels. The way we handle these experiences can either negatively or positively affect the vibes we’re putting out into the world — and it’s important to know how they do both in order to find balance. Here are five ways your life experiences affect your vibration and some tips on how to change them if you want to raise your energy levels and match that vibrant vibe with what you’re putting out into the world.
1) Honoring Your Life Experiences
Because life is full of highs and lows, it’s important to give yourself time to reflect on each experience. When you honor your life experiences, you can more easily let go of things that are holding you back. Don’t run from your experiences—ask yourself how they’ve shaped you, and what lessons you can take away from them. The good news? This principle will help set your energy flow free.
2) Identifying The Energy Drainers
It’s important to identify your energy drainers—events and situations that leave you feeling depleted, overwhelmed, and uninspired. This is usually more difficult than it sounds, but a good way to go about it is to make a mental list of negative things that happen during your week. Did you get stuck in traffic? Did an e-mail from your boss stress you out? Did someone cut ahead of you in line at Starbucks? All those small things add up over time when left ignored. After you identify what drains your energy, take steps to protect yourself from them; for example, if traffic stresses you out every day on your commute home, try leaving work early one day per week (assuming there aren’t meetings) or adjusting your schedule so you aren’t working during rush hour. The point here isn’t necessarily to do less, but rather to balance your life with positive experiences. As you begin placing more emphasis on doing stuff that makes you feel great—whether its visiting friends, taking a dance class, or hanging out with your kids—your life will start flowing in better directions without much effort on your part.
3) Meditation & Visualization
When you are having a tough time, it can be difficult to see beyond your current experience. But by practicing visualization and meditation, you can start to shift your perspective. Visualize yourself in five years. Think about what you want out of life, out of your career, out of each relationship. Then visualize yourself achieving these goals—but only use positive language while visualizing. Rather than saying I hope I get that promotion at work say I am confident and deserving of that promotion. It might feel silly, but these mental exercises train your brain to think positively about what you want from life and help raise your vibration. Meditation is an easy practice that anyone can incorporate into their daily routine. You don’t have to spend hours on end to reap benefits either—just try 10 minutes before bed or first thing in the morning. Start small with just 5-10 minutes per day until you get used to longer periods of focused breathing, calming music or simple guided meditations.
4) Pay Attention To What Brings You Joy
Negative energy weighs you down. Positive energy lifts you up. While it’s certainly important to acknowledge negative experiences, it’s equally important to pay attention to what brings you joy. Notice and appreciate these happy moments—from a morning cup of coffee with a friend to singing in your car on your way home from work—by savoring them and feeling them in your body. What is causing you to vibrate higher? Take note of that and use it as an example when thinking about how you want to feel more often. And before you know it, more positive thoughts will lead to positive feelings which will lead to better choices which will lead to feeling better overall. It’s easier than you think!
5) Change The World
The easiest way to change your vibration is to start taking small actions today. As you take these small, conscious steps to improve your energy, you’ll feel yourself vibrating at a higher frequency. And as that vibration strengthens, you’ll also notice it has a ripple effect on those around you. Start by committing just 10 minutes per day to perform an act of kindness for someone else. You’ll be amazed at how quickly that action will affect your energy flow!
You Deserve Peace
No matter what life experience you've been dealt, you deserve to feel peace. One way to manifest this is through meditation. While the word "meditation" can make some people cringe, a growing number of people are discovering the huge benefits, routine meditative practice can provide. They are finding that meditation helps them achieve an inner sense of peace and quiet that has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and many other problems so commonly seen today.
