It’s a Vibe, Oh That’s a Vibe

You may often hear people refer to someone or something as having a “good vibe” or “bad vibe” and be totally confused by what they mean by that. That’s OK because in today’s posting i’m going to dig a little deeper to explain and touch on this topic and what we can do to raise our vibrations.

Scientifically, many things in life are composed of energy that varies in both in quantity and quality. A vibration is a state of being, or the energetic quality of a person, place, thing, or thought. Much of reading or feeling “vibes” is intuitive. For example, you can feel a person’s energy from their presence of just walking into a room without them having to even say anything. That right there, darling, is a vibe.

Some people give off a vibe that will draw you closer, while others unfortunately make you want to run in the other direction. As you think, you vibrate. As you vibrate, you attract. Human vibrations are composed of physical matter and everything from what you think to how you communicate. When you are vibrating at a higher frequency you often feel happier and lighter, and you may start seeing that the goals and intentions that you had in mind are starting to flow. Whereas when you are vibrating at a lower frequency it can feel heavy, upsetting, or dark.

Below are some reasons why your vibrations are low and what you can do to raise them! According to Dr. David Hawkins, a consciousness researcher and spirituality author, being aware of your vibrations and different states creates a scale of consciousness. So let’s be mindful and start raising our vibrations shall we?

Low Vibrations and What You Can Do to Raise Them!

Being Ungrateful: Gratitude is everything. Sometimes in can be hard to find things to be thankful for in life, especially because life can be tough and oftentimes challenging. Before I start my meditation for the day, I always find something that I am grateful for. It can be something little, like the weather. Today I am thankful that it isn’t raining. (Haha, not a fan of the rain or cold whatsoever!)

Not Having Generosity: Being generous doesn’t always refer to money, but if you are a greedy person with anything in life (money, attention, etc.) it does not feel good. You can practice generosity by giving back more, or learn to be generous in other ways that do not relate to money. For me, focusing on being more generous with my time is something I actively work on.

Having too Many Negative Thoughts: It is normal to have negative thoughts. No one can remain positive all day, everyday. If they did, they would not be a human! Though it is natural to have negative thoughts, it is important to not let them consume you. If you are an overly pessimistic or jealous person, this negative energy can leave you feeling heavy all of the time. Be diligent about your thoughts, and better days will sure to come.

You are Not Mentally Stimulated: I have noticed that when I was working long hours, going from one job to the next, I wasn’t mentally stimulated. It was part of the cause of my unhappiness. Although it was no one’s fault but of my own, what I did was read more. In the past I often enjoyed reading. Even when I wasn’t in school, just leisurely reading whether it was non-fiction or fiction novels, self-help books or spirituality books, I just enjoyed reading. It doesn’t have to be reading, just be selective on what contributes to the course of your day. Be selective in the quality and content of what you are mentally consuming. You will find newfound energy in your day by being mentally stimulated.

You are Surrounded by Negative and Toxic People: The people you surround yourself with are crucial. Surround yourself with people and friends who support and lift you up. Spend time with people who are genuine and can be happy for you and want to see you do well in life. There’s nothing more draining and harmful than having to dim your light so that the others can shine. Sometimes we keep toxic people in our lives knowing that they are toxic because we love them, or simply hoping they would one day change. It can be tempting to succumb to the feeling of helplessness with no regard for the future, but channeling your efforts into raising your vibrations and energetic frequency is one of the biggest gifts you can give yourself and to the rest of the world.

You are Not Honoring Your Space: Our homes are our sacred spaces. It is a physical representation of what is going on in your energy. Oftentimes I am guilty of coming home tired from work, and the last thing I want to do is pick up after myself or clean. I put it off and will get to it when I have the chance. When that chance arises I am often overwhelmed with regret that I have waited this long to begin! These low vibrating energies make themselves comfortable in your home as they manifest into clutter and disorder! Therefore it is often very soothing and uplifting after you clean your space. After my cleaning and de-cluttering is done, I like to go a step further and burn some sage throughout the corners of my space while clearing out the negative energy that has taken up residence in my energy field.

I hope that this blog was helpful and beneficial to you all. When you learn to love and lift yourself up, you can help bring others along with you on your journey. If you know other ways in which we can raise our vibrations feel free to comment or send me a message I would love to hear them and put out those good vibes to share with the rest of the world!

Calm Your Mind: A Simple How to Meditate Guide

Hello world,

In my past blog posts I’ve talked about meditation and the positive effects that it has had in my life and how it has changed my mindset, relationships with others and myself. It has helped me detox my thoughts and relax my mind and let in fresh, new information.

In today’s post I’ll be sharing my simple guide on how to meditate for those of you who are beginners or simply just need more guidance. Let me clarify on a common misconception that many people have: I once thought meditation was about clearing your mind. Our minds are the most powerful tool known to man. It is constantly working and formulating ways to keep us alive. It creates algorithms on our experiences in attempt to make our lives easier. The issues come when we allow our minds to run our lives without any awareness to what is happening. We let bad thoughts and experiences take over our mind without the awareness that we can change it. 

When we meditate, we sit with our thoughts and become more aware of what we are thinking and feeling. Awareness is key! Below I am going to share some of the easiest ways I like to meditate. 

Guide to Meditation:

Before I start to meditate I like to think about something I want to meditate about. It can be anything or nothing, but I have found that choosing something to focus on is the easiest way to start. It can be something that is bothering me, something that I am happy about, or something that I would like to manifest into my life. Whatever it is, make sure you aren’t too attached to the topic so you do not resist anything that comes up. 

To start find time in your day or evening where you are alone and have some peace and quiet. It shouldn’t be anywhere you can be easily distracted. For me, I like to sit  on the floor in front of my mirror so I can be ready to just do my makeup before I go to work. 


Next, begin by breathing deep breaths in and out. I like to take a deep breath in my nose and exhale out my mouth. I’ll also wiggle my toes slightly to relax any tension I may carry in my feet from a previous tiring day of work. Once I begin to relax I like to begin with a saying or phrase I want to believe about myself. It can be anything you want to believe about yourself. My favorite is “I am love.” I want to be love so I can receive and give love more freely. Your mantra and saying could be anything! Whatever it is you want to feel or whatever it is you want to be. You can repeat anything you want to feel while breathing so that your mind receives the message and mantra.

By this time you might notice that your brain starts thinking of other things. That’s normal. When you realize your mind starting to think of other things and you’ve lost your focus that’s OK. Don’t give up and start losing focus. Be proud that you became aware of this! Once you became aware that you have lost focus and become distracted just return to repeating your mantra. Sometimes as I’m repeating my mantra another one would come up, and I’ll just begin repeating this mantra instead. As i mentioned earlier when you choose a topic, it’s important to not become too attached to that one mantra so that we don’t resist something else that may come up. When I repeat my mantra and a new one comes up I feel this is my higher self just telling me that this is something I should also meditate on so I allow it. 


I like to imagine a white screen. Sometimes images would appear on the screen, and I let simply allow them and they eventually go away. Sometimes these images are objects, other times they are people from my past. I just have to push through it and wait for another image. Other times ideas may come up. If they’re good, I’ll try and make a note to remember them, but generally I’ll let them pass as well. I then thank myself for this time, open my eyes, and begin my day.

I like to try to do this for 15 minutes a day, but you can do it longer or shorter depending on how you feel. Even if I have only 5 minutes in my day to spare, that will be what I work with. The beauty of meditation is that it’s personal and there is no wrong way to do it. So find whatever works for you and do it consistently. By meditating I am often reminded that life and time on this earth is significant and insignificant at the same time. We let the normality of everyday life dictate so much of our happiness without any awareness. When we meditate we become aware, and it helps us see the things we love and appreciate about our lives and change the things that we don’t. Thank you for reading and allowing me to share my journey and thoughts here!
