Raising Your Vibration: A Complete Guide to Transforming Your Energy

Raising Your Vibration by Erin Pavlina

In this article, we’re going to delve into the concept of vibrational frequency and its impact on every aspect of our lives. 

From exploring the nuances of emotional states to uncovering the benefits of operating at higher frequencies, I’ll offer insights and practical strategies to help you navigate this spiritual journey. 

Whether you’re seeking to cultivate joy, resilience, or manifest your desires, understanding your vibration is the first step towards transformation.

What Does It Mean to Raise Your Vibration?

Raising your vibration refers to raising your frequency. This is a spiritual frequency. Think of it as a scale with someone like Jack the Ripper at one end and Jesus Christ at the other. When you raise your vibration, you begin to resonate at a higher frequency, and things become possible that just aren’t possible at the other end. 

Raising your vibration has the benefit of increasing your awareness and your connection with Source. Psychic abilities develop at higher vibrations as well.

How Your Emotional State Affects Your Vibration

As human beings, we experience a wide range of emotions. All emotions are important because they give us feedback about what’s going on in our lives.

When we feel sad, we usually prefer to feel happy. When we feel anxious, we usually prefer to feel calm. When something challenging happens in our lives, we generally want the situation to improve, right? So emotions can be a great tool to help us figure out where we are and help create contrast so we know where we want to be.

But emotions aren’t just about how you feel inside. Your emotional state emits a vibration that impacts others. Read about how I choose my emotions here.

What Are the Lower and Higher Vibrations 

Emotions that tend to feel uncomfortable include shame, guilt, sadness, fear, anxiety, and anger. 

Emotions that put us in the higher vibrations include love, joy, compassion, gratitude amusement, and peace.

Benefits of a High Vibration

Acceptance of Circumstances: People with a high vibration don’t resist the circumstances in their lives. They acknowledge where they are and embrace it. Living at a high vibration requires facing reality without denial, accepting your current situation, and then moving forward to the next level.

Ability to Find Joy: Being at a high vibration means being capable of experiencing internal joy regardless of external circumstances.

Fearlessness of Death: Those who are unafraid of death often experience happiness, peace, and presence in the moment. Overcoming the fear of the unknown and embracing life as it comes leads to living at a high vibration, which positively influences others.

Fearlessness of Living: Many people live in a perpetual state of stress, driven by fear. However, living in fear prevents attaining a high vibration. This doesn’t entail ignoring problems but learning to find happiness amidst challenges, fostering resilience and positivity in all circumstances.

Resilience in Adversity: When you are happy, and “bad” things happen, you shrug them off more easily. You keep your vibration high, handle your problems, and keep moving forward. It’s like navigating through obstacles with ease, barely scratched and dented. Being happy doesn’t mean avoiding pain; it means pain can’t bring you down and cripple you.

Consequences of a Low Vibration

Have you noticed that when you’re anxious, worried, and upset things keep getting worse? You fall out of flow, and everything is a struggle. The pieces of your life start falling down like a house of cards. Someone gets sick. You get chewed out at work. Your loved one wants some space. You can’t get anything done. Even simple things become difficult.

Also, when your vibration is on the lower end of the scale, you can get sick or develop health problems. If you have anxiety, that might affect where you go and what you do when you get there. If you become angry, you may sever an important relationship. If you feel guilt and shame too long, you may consider suicide.

When you’re sad, upset, angry, or frustrated, you are not in the best place to make important decisions because they’ll be manifesting out of a low vibration. I always recommend raising your vibration first before you take actions that will have long-lasting effects.

Ways To Raise Your Vibration

Purify your body: Toxins lower your energy and your vibration, so if you can, remove cigarettes, alcohol, refined foods, pesticides, and smog/pollution from your life. Live where the air is fresh and people aren’t blowing smoke at you.

Take a social inventory: If you’re around people who vibrate at a low frequency, you’ll be hard-pressed to keep your energy high.

Meditate: Sit in a chair or lie in your bed, take some deep breaths, do a visual meditation or just quiet your mind. Start asking questions and see if you hear any answers.

Practice compassion: When you genuinely and compassionately help others you automatically raise your vibration. That’s the best way for me to break out of the negative is to remember how blessed I am and help someone less fortunate than myself.

Journal: Self-discovery is awesome! It definitely raises your vibration. When you know that you are the only one in the world who will read your journal (it is password protected) then you feel safe to explore your own psyche. I’ve learned a lot about myself through journaling and I highly recommend it.

How a High Vibration Helps You Manifest Your Desires

Your emotional state has a huge impact on your life path. Have you noticed that when you’re excited and happy, you feel unstoppable? Things just fall into place. It’s like money drops from the sky. Relationships get better. Things start going better at work. Everything you think about manifests. Everything you want just drops right into your lap.

When you are happy and at a high vibration, you attract positive experiences. Life just gets better. You’re totally in the flow. Your boat is sailing along with the current, and you don’t even have to paddle.

When you are in the pit of despair, you must find a higher vibration, even if just for a few minutes. Find something to laugh about. Dance a little. Sing at the top of your lungs. Meditate. Do whatever makes you feel happy, even if it’s just for 10 minutes or a couple of hours.

When you can pop yourself into a higher vibration, resources come. Thoughts you couldn’t have at the lower vibration now flow to you easily. Help arrives. Ideas come. And you suddenly see exactly how you’re going to get off the rock.

Other Ways to Get Into The Vibration of What You Desire

Daydream: Imagine yourself in your desired reality, fully immersed in the experience. Picture the details vividly: how you behave, where you reside, and who accompanies you. Visualize your transformed life with clarity.

Feel the Feeling: Invoke the emotions that will accompany the realization of your dreams. Connect deeply with the sensations of achievement and fulfillment, as if they are already present in your life.

Remove Negative Energy: Choose to share your aspirations exclusively with those who support and uplift you. Surround yourself with individuals whose energies align with your goals, fostering a positive environment for growth.

Make Room in Your Life: Adapt your surroundings to accommodate your aspirations. Clear out any elements that hinder your progress, and create space for new opportunities and experiences to manifest.

Reframe Your Beliefs: Examine and adjust the narratives you tell yourself. Cultivate empowering beliefs that support your journey towards your desired reality, fostering a mindset of abundance and possibility.

Create a New Identity: Align your self-perception with your envisioned future. Embrace a new identity that resonates with your aspirations, allowing yourself to embody the qualities and characteristics of your ideal self.

Make Sure You Really Want It: Ensure that your desires truly align with your values and aspirations. Reflect on your motivations and intentions, confirming that they are in harmony with your authentic self.

Jump on Opportunities: Seize the moments that align with your vision and vibration. Take decisive action towards your goals, embracing opportunities that propel you closer to your desired reality.

Drawbacks To Pay Attention to With a High Vibration

When you’re operating at a high vibration, you emit a powerful energy that can attract lower vibrational entities, much like a bright light draws moths. These entities may see you as a source of energy, potentially draining you if you don’t defend yourself psychically.

Similarly, when you’re at a high vibration, you might find yourself more sensitive to the problems and negative energy of others. This increased sensitivity can make you vulnerable to abuse or cause you to feel sadness unrelated to your own experiences.

Sometimes, individuals who spend a lot of time in high vibrational states may experience a disconnect between their energetic frequency and their physical body. This misalignment can lead to symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, and changes in weight, as well as confusion and mental fog.

Maintaining a balance between your ethereal energy and physical grounding is essential. Doing so helps prevent mysterious illnesses and migraines commonly experienced by intuitives and other high vibration individuals, ensuring you stay healthy and aligned.

How Our Vibration is Affected by Other People

It’s natural for us to be influenced by the energy of those around us.

Similarly, a person feeling sad can be uplifted by the presence of someone happy, while someone experiencing shame can find solace in the unconditional love of another.

Energy exchange operates in both directions.

A single individual vibrating at a high frequency can positively impact the energy of countless others vibrating at lower frequencies.

Conversely, one person harboring anger can instill fear in a crowd, akin to the effect of a terrorist’s bomb.

Therefore, consider what energy you project into the world and what vibration you embody. Will you contribute to a world characterized by peace or one dominated by fear?

Defense Against Lower Vibrations

Have you ever felt your energy suddenly drop while you were enjoying a high vibrational state? Here’s what to do when that happens:

Stay Mindful: Be aware of your energy levels and vibration. If you notice a decline, take action to protect yourself and elevate your vibration.

Grounding: Visualize roots extending from your body into the Earth to release excess energy and absorb stabilizing Earth energy.

Shielding: Imagine a protective shield of light around you, deflecting negative energy while allowing positive energy to flow.

Cleansing: Take a cleansing shower or use sage to remove any lingering negative energy. Intend to wash away negativity from yourself and your space.

Self-Care: Engage in activities that uplift you, such as spending time in nature, practicing yoga, petting an animal companion, or listening to uplifting music.

Set Boundaries: Learn to say no to draining people or situations. Prioritize your well-being by setting healthy boundaries.

Affirmations: Use positive affirmations to reinforce a positive mindset and raise your vibration.

Surround Yourself with Positivity: Spend time with supportive people and create a positive environment with uplifting books and inspiring art.

Release Negativity: Practice forgiveness and let go of negative emotions to prevent them from weighing you down.

Helping Other People Raise Their Vibration

When someone’s vibration is low, here’s how you can help:

Listen and Support: Offer your ear and let them express their troubles. Simply being heard can uplift them.

Show Love: Understand their love language and express affection accordingly, whether through hugs, acts of service, words of affirmation, quality time, or thoughtful gestures.

Express Gratitude: Share your appreciation for them sincerely, boosting their spirits and energy.

Radiate Happiness: Maintain a high vibration yourself, as your positivity can influence them positively.

Sing to Them: Sing uplifting songs or hum tunes to lighten their mood and encourage participation.

Surprise Tactics: Splash water on their face or make silly faces and sounds to break their pattern of negativity and bring a smile to their face.

Raising Your Vibration When Tragedy Strikes

During times of tragedy, it’s crucial not to succumb to lower vibrations like sadness and anger. Instead, maintaining a high vibration is essential for positively impacting the world.

Acknowledging the tragedy without dwelling in negativity is key. Dwelling in sadness doesn’t uplift those already feeling down.

Keep your vibration elevated, grounded in gratitude, compassion, love, and joy. This uplifts not only yourself but also the world around you. Refusing to let darkness overshadow your light is vital in challenging times.

In moments of moral tragedy, those who radiate light must remain steadfast. They serve as beacons for those struggling with their own light. Falling into despair only adds to the sense of powerlessness, which isn’t beneficial to anyone.

Ways To Get Into The Vibration of Joy

Practice raising your vibration: Spend 10 minutes each day being excessively positive, happy, and exuberant. Gradually increase the duration to 20 minutes and beyond, until higher vibrational states become more natural.

Here are 14 ways to find joy again:

  • Find a new hobby: Explore a new interest during your free time.
  • Pick up an old hobby: Revive a pastime that once brought you joy.
  • Make a new friend: Connect with individuals who share your interests.
  • Reconnect with an old friend: Reach out to someone from your past and catch up.
  • Help others: Bring joy into your life by bringing joy to others.
  • Fall in love: Open yourself to romantic connections.
  • Remove toxic people from your life: Identify and distance yourself from negative influences.
  • Fight for a cause: Engage in activism for a meaningful purpose.
  • Learn something new: Continuously expand your knowledge and skills.
  • Set an audacious goal: Challenge yourself to achieve something extraordinary.
  • Travel: Explore new places and cultures if possible.
  • Get spiritual: Reflect on your existence and connect with universal energies.
  • Laugh: Embrace humor and laughter as sources of energy and positivity.
  • Spend time with loved ones: Prioritize quality time with supportive friends and family members.


Remember that you have the power to shape your reality by consciously raising your frequency. 

By embracing joy, love, and compassion, you can create a ripple effect of positivity in your life and the world around you. 

May you continue to elevate your vibration and manifest abundance in all aspects of your life.
