Many decades ago, I first heard the Beach Boy’s song ‘Good Vibrations’. Even as I type this, I can hear the tune in my head:-) The lyrics tell of the good vibrations being given off by a certain girl...and the way the sunlight plays upon her hair.
Today, I’m more aware than ever of the importance of maintaining ‘good vibrations’.
Since I’ve already revealed my current obsession with Abraham Hicks, it shouldn’t surprise you that I pay close attention to my vibration.
Our vibration, or the frequency of our personal energy, has everything to do with our mood and well-being
And if you subscribe to the Law of Attraction, you believe that these vibrations are directly responsible for what's present in your life.
We create our circumstances based on our vibration.
It all comes down to feelings. At any given moment, what we're feeling corresponds with a vibrational frequency.
Feeling crummy = Low level vibration
Feeling awesome = High level vibration
The full-on, deep dive into how our frequency creates our reality is for another post. For now, the image below will give you the basics....
Can you focus in and identify where you’re currently vibrating?
My first real lessons about vibration came from a woman named Christie Marie Sheldon. She hosted a webinar on the importance of learning to raise your personal vibration.
Christie Marie Sheldon's website, Love or Above is named after her belief that we should all strive to operate at the vibrational frequency of love or above.
(Note: If you refer back to the rainbow chart, you'll see that the vibration of Love is 500. Over halfway to Enlightenment:-)
I listened to Christie Marie Sheldon's meditations on repeat. I quickly began to identify my own vibrations by paying close attention to how I felt throughout the day.
At the time, I was struggling with intense anger and fear. I was allowing circumstances to keep me in doubt and worry. I was a mess.
Opening up to the idea that I could (and do) control my vibrations was liberating. I now understand that when I’m stuck in a feeling on the scale anywhere below love...I’m not good.
The easiest way to start shifting your vibration is to reach for hope. Find something to feel hopeful about and you'll be vibrating around 400.
If you can cultivate a solid practice of gratitude, you'll find your frequency move way up the scale. Gratitude has a vibration of 900!
By visualizing the actual vibrational scale, I began to relate how I feel to a place on the chart.
The goal is to hang in the range of love or above. The sweet spot.
I’ve since discovered another way to really identify where I’m vibrating.
Be aware that this method seems a little wacky. But, please don't judge until you try it for yourself:-)
Intrigued by the idea of truly being able to ‘see’ and ‘feel’ where I’m vibrating, I grabbed a wire hanger and two plastic drinking straws.
This video will show you how to make your own.
Here’s what I know about my energy wand practice…
It is impossible for me to move the wires when holding the straws. The wire hanger spins freely inside the straw.
When I use this device to check in with my energy...I can physically ‘feel’ how much better it is to operate at a higher vibration.
By ‘testing’ my mood, thoughts, attitude against the energy wands, I can easily tell (both by the direction of the wands and by how I feel internally) what’s going on with my energy.
I’m not sure I’d have believed it without trying it for myself. It’s the coolest thing! Like a grown-up science experiment.
Please try this one out for yourself and share what you discover! I really, really want to hear about your experience...
