10 Ways to Raise Your Vibration

Everything in the universe is made up of energy, even you.  That energy is a vibration.  You can feel that vibration all the time.  Whenever you say that someone gives you a “bad vibe” or you get a “good vibe” from a place or situation.  That’s energy.  Have you ever heard someone say that your inner world creates your outer world?  Well, it does.  Every thought you think, every word you say, your actions, they all give off vibrations.  These vibrations can be high or low.  If you have negative self talk,  a negative attitude, a belief that you will always be struggling financially, that you will never be successful, you will give off a low vibration and you will in fact attract those things.  If you speak to yourself with love and confidence,  believe in yourself, replace those negative thoughts with positive ones, you will give off a higher vibration.  If you’ve studied the law of attraction at all you know that the premise is that like attracts like.  If you’re living in negativity, that’s what you will attract.  If you’re living in positivity,  then that’s what you will attract. 

You see a lot of people today talking about being high vibe.  Well, it’s certainly possible but you can’t just go around saying you’re high vibe and expect your life to change.  You have to actually do the work to raise your vibration and it can take some conscious effort.  I have come a long long way, but there are certainly days where things happen and I start spewing those low vibe words and thinking negative thoughts and believe me I can feel the difference.  Once you start living life more and more in a higher vibration it just feels wrong when the negativity enters your world. 

So, I have put together 10 ways to raise your vibration.  These are steps that I have incorporated into my own life and let me tell you, since incorporating these steps I have become a different person and my life has grown in so many ways. 

So here we go:


Gratitude is one of the most high vibe thoughts, feelings, and words we can express.  The more you practice gratitude, the more you start living in a higher vibration and the more you start attracting high vibe things, people, situations, etc. into your life.

The first hour of your day can define how the rest of your day plays out.  When you wake up try thinking or saying out loud 3 things you are grateful for that day.  Make it the first thing you think.  If you journal, or even if you don’t, you can write at the top of that entry 3 things you are grateful for that day.  This is what I do.  You can always think of 3 things to be grateful for, and if for some reason you can’t, well you woke up.  You are alive.  There’s one to get you started.  It can be as simple as you made an amazing cup of coffee that morning or you woke up before your alarm.  Try it.


Meditating has not always been easy for me.  I can have a hard time shutting my brain off.  I may even dedicate a whole post to mediation because of how much I have come to love it.  When you mediate you are clearing your brain of all the clutter.  I like to meditate as one of the first things I do in the morning.  I feel like it centers me and helps prepare me to better handle what the day has in store.  You can meditate in the morning, at night before bed, or even in the middle of the day to help clear your mind.  It can be for 5 minutes,10 minutes, 30 minutes, whatever feels right to you.  I don’t give myself a time limit.  I like to stop when I feel like it’s time.


This is a big one.  Your attitude matters.  If you are constantly negative about your situation, that’s what you’re going to attract.  If you’re always thinking about how life sucks then life is going to suck.  If you’re always thinking you’re never going to succeed, you likely won’t.  If you’re concentrating on all that you don’t have then that’s what you’re going to get.  If you’re focusing on all the debt you’re never going to pay off, that money likely won’t come easily.  Change your attitude, change your life.  When you catch yourself thinking something negative, acknowledge it and change it to positive.  For example:  You’re on your way to work and you’re stuck behind a slow truck or you’re stuck in unexpected traffic.  The negativity starts flowing.  Instead think about how it’s awesome that you have a working car.  You have a job that you get to go to and get paid for doing so.  You may get to work a bit late but at least you’re safe.  You’re stuck in traffic and you got to listen to the rest of that podcast you love or got to listen to a song that came on the radio that makes you happy.


Every word that comes out of your mouth carries a vibration.  Every thought you think carries a vibration.  This includes self talk.  If you don’t talk to and treat yourself with love and respect how do you expect anyone else to?  If you tell yourself that you’re not good enough to do something, then you’re not going to do it.  If you tell yourself you’re not good enough then you won’t be, because you already made up your mind.  Stop saying “I want” or “I need” or “I’ll try”.  Those words stem from doubt and give you an excuse not to follow through.  The universe hears that.  Try saying “I will” and “I am” and “I have”.  Your words are so powerful.  Start being conscious of what words you use.


A lot of us actually block ourselves from receiving gifts from the universe.  When you believe that you are not deserving you’re not going to attract what you desire.  If you are focusing on what you lack, you are not in the vibration of receiving.  Start switching from that lack mindset to the mindset of already having.  Most importantly start believing you deserve to receive.  There are so many times we get compliments whether it be on our hair, our outfit, our weight loss, or our success.  And how many times do we answer with oh yeah this outfit is so old, or yeah she cut my hair shorter than I wanted it’s okay, or I’m far from my fitness goal still, or I have a long way to go to get where I want to be, or we just fire right back with a compliment for them because we feel uncomfortable.  I’m guilty too.  We need to stop being in a state of resistance.  Stop feeling uncomfortable with compliments, you deserve to receive them just like you deserve to receive gifts from the universe.  Instead just say thank you and acknowledge that you deserve that compliment. 

Cutting cords:

This is something I started doing a little while back and it just feels good.  We can have cords that energetically connect us to people, places, thoughts, feelings, or things.  They can be positive or they can be negative.  At least once a month (usually during the full moon) I cut cords.  Sometimes I’ll visualize the cords attached to whatever the case may be at that time (a person, place, thing, thought, emotion).  Then I will visualize scissors cutting those cords and them falling away into the universe.  One night while sleeping I saw Archangel Michael with his sword cutting away at attached cords.  These were some pretty heavy ones.  As he cut through them they fell away.  I cannot describe to you how light I felt when I woke up that morning.  This is now another way I visualize my cords being cut.


Holding on to resentment and anger not only does nothing for you, it doesn’t raise your vibration either.  You don’t need to forget things that have happened or let people back into your life that have hurt you, but you need to forgive.  You even need to forgive yourself sometimes.  Holding on to anger and pain will just keep you in that space until it consumes you.  You need to forgive and let go.  It’s dragging you down, not lifting you up.  Don’t let your past ruin your future.  Try writing a list.  Write a list of everyone (including yourself) and every situation that you forgive.  Write it down and say it out loud.  Then let it go.

Clean and organize your space:

There are a lot of times I deep clean my house and then I let it get cluttered and messy all over again.  It was becoming a cycle.  When my house is messy or disorganized I can feel it.  It gives me anxiety.  I am way less productive.  I just feel weighed down.  Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.  It’s true.  Your space matters.  When my space is clean and organized I feel so much lighter.  I am productive.  I feel happier.  I feel more positive.  My anxiety lessens.  I even feel like I think clearer.  Ideas flow easier.  Try cleaning your space and see how you feel.

I am:

Affirmations are so important.  When writing down your goals start speaking as though it already happened.  You already did it.  You already have it.  Remember like attracts like.  If you want to raise your vibration and start attracting things into your life that you desire you need to start believing you already have it, because you do.  The universe has infinite possibilities, which means so do you.


Last but definitely not least, your actions matter.  You can’t fake it till you make it with the law of attraction and raising your vibration.  You need to do the work.  You can’t spend a few days shifting your perspective and decide that it’s not working for you.  You have to make it a life style.  It requires conscious effort, but it does get easier.  When you start rewiring your way of thinking it starts to become normal.  It just might take time and practice.  But I promise you, it is so so worth it.
