If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.Nikola Tesla
Learning how to raise your vibration is an essential key to begin manifesting the life you want.
If you’re not quite ready for all that- you’ll at the very least boost your mood!
Our vibration is our energy. It makes up what we are, how we feel, how we relate to others and essentially, makes up the entire universe.
These methods for raising your vibration can be used when you’re in a bad mood, feeling fatigued, stuck in a rut or just have an overall sense that your vibe is low. It happens.
They can also be used any ol’ regular day when you feel like elevating your energy.
Lets dive in!
One of the quickest and easiest ways to raise your vibration is by practicing gratitude.
When we think, feel or express appreciation for the things we have- we are telling the universe “I want more of this.”
“Attention goes where energy flows,” right?
If we’re focusing on all the things we DON’T have, all the things we’re unsatisfied with, and all the things that are ailing us- we’re dragging our energy into a lower frequency.
It happens… we’re human and being “high vibing” all the time is challenging, some may even say unrealistic.
But it can always be the goal.
I’ve found that the quickest way to raise your vibration is through gratitude.
Either by making a list of things you are thankful for, going through gratitude affirmations in your head, or expressing your gratitude to someone you love and trust.
Try keeping a daily gratitude journal and use it daily to stay on track with your gratitude practice. You’ll notice an energy shift for sure!
Sweet Orange Essential Oil (or Tangerine)
Often when you’re feeling low vibrations or having a bad day- you may need a little support in the sacral chakra area.
Signs of having a stagnant sacral chakra are: lack of creativity, lack of joy, or a lack of passion… to name a few.
These experiences often point to stagnancy or blockage in the sacral chakra- which, just like any other chakra blockage, can make it more difficult to maintain a high vibration.
In turn- you may feel a spark of creativity, inspiring joy or boost of passion. That’s guaranteed to raise your vibration!
Mountain rose herbs is one of my favorite essential oil companies- they use sustainable practices that respect the land and most of their products are organic.
Here’s a few ways you can use the orange oils to raise your vibration:
- Rub a drop of it on your sacral chakra (the space right under your belly button / womb area).
- Diffuse it! Vitruvi makes BEAUTIFUL, high quality diffusers. Check them out here. Mountain Rose Herbs also has a beautiful glass one here.
- Add a few drops to the bottom of your shower and allow it to uplift your morning.
- Rub it onto the crystal you’re wearing or carrying with you that day (suggestions below).
- Rub a drop of it to the back of your neck + wrists.
- You could also try Psychic Sunshine Aura Spray from one of my favorite shops, MamaWunderbar. It has orange essential oil in it, among other greatness like Lapis Lazuli crystal essence, grapefruit, fir and cedarwood oils.
These orange oils are my go-tos when I need a quick pick me up or mood booster. I love supporting my sacral chakra with the tangerine oil and apply it almost daily to stay connected to joy, inspiration and creativity.
Cacao is a well known mood booster and can also help us to open up the heart and connect to love. If you look at the diagram at the top of this post you’ll see that love is one of the highest emotional frequencies we can experience.
Ceremonial cacao (and cacao ceremony) is a beautiful way to raise your vibration.
I have a full guide that goes over how to best use ceremonial cacao- including my favorite recipe, a brief history of cacao, and how to use it to open up the heart chakra in ceremony.
Check out the full post here.
Anytime you notice your vibration (energy) feels a little low- you can use the tool of affirmations to get you going in the right direction.
Here’s a few you can use to raise your vibration:
- I am connected to the world around me
- I am a channel for divine light to come through onto earth
- My energy is clear, calm, and elevated
- I am so grateful to experience life at this time
- I experience love, joy and peace
- I AM love, joy and peace
Practice Balance and Moderation in All Things
Easier said than done, but practicing balance and moderation is a great way to raise (and maintain) your vibration.
When we overindulge in anything (for example- drinking, junk food, social media, negativity) it can create a spiral of negative side effects. One of them being disconnecting from our higher selves and from our true path in life.
In order to raise your vibration and feel blissful alignment- practice more moderation. The general principle of only taking what you need and avoiding an excess of anything (i.e. moderation) has benefits that will nurture your energy.
Surround Yourself With Inspiration
Being inspired and connected to creativity is the best way to get “in the flow” of life.
When you’re in the flow- you experience less being stuck, more connection to joy and an abundance of ease.
Flow, joy, ease = elevated vibrations.
You can inspire a state of flow and encourage inspiration by surrounding yourself with things that bring you joy and make you feel motivated.
Everyone feels inspired by different things but a few example ideas are:
- abstract artwork
- nature photography
- travel photography
- live plants or flowers
Try incorporating more things that inspire you into your daily environment. Decorate your home, office, desk, or bathroom with the things that make you feel inspired.
My secret weapon. As someone who experiences moodiness and bouts of depression- this herbal tincture has been a life changer.
With herbs like St. Johns Wort, Holy Basil, Lemon Balm and Motherwort your energy is gently supported and uplifted.
Some days I really appreciate the support of this tincture in allowing me to get past the mental funk and get into a better mood. Better mood= higher vibration.
We all need a little help sometimes. I love to lean on herbal allies.
Light Visualizations + Energy Work
Lightwork and energy work are for those comfortable with their ability to shift and move energy. If this doesn’t resonate with you, feel free to skip over this one.
If it does resonate with you- hello my fellow lightworker!
Doing light visualizations and working with light are one of the best ways to raise your vibration.
Light visualization, reiki, lightwork and energy work can be a daily practice to keep your energy nourished and your vibration elevated.
I usually start by grounding my energy, then focus on bringing white, golden or violet light in through my crown chakra. Focusing on the feeling of being connected to the earth and connected to the source of light above is a wonderful way to experience a higher vibration.
You can also visualize a light bubble around your aura and use that to keep your vibration supported.
Palo Santo or Lavender
Using the smoke of palo santo or lavender can help elevate the energy in your space and your aura.
Not only does smoke help to clear out low vibrations, palo santo and lavender in particular both are wonderful at bringing forward positive energy that guides you into raising your vibration.
Citrine + Selenite Crystals
Two of the best crystals for raising your vibration and maintaining good energy are citrine and selenite.
Citrine elevates optimism and inner power. It is also a stone of luck that supports manifestation and abundance. The solar plexus chakra is supported and activated by citrine which gives us a confidence and inner power boost- both essentials for raising your vibration.
Selenite on the other hand is an incredible stone for clearing. If you’re an empath or sensitive person- you know how important that is for maintaining your energy and high frequency.
You can use selenite to keep your citrine clear and also to promote serene peace. It will radiate protection and serenity- helping you to raise your vibration and rid yourself of unwanted lower vibrational energies.
One of the cool things about selenite is you don’t need to cleanse it energetically. You can actually use it to energetically cleanse other stones, yourself, and your environment. Such a powerful crystal!
Meditation is a daily necessity if you want to raise your vibration. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Just you and your breath.
Practice becoming the observer. When thoughts or feelings arise during meditation- just allow.
Don’t judge, try to control, or even label what comes up. Simply observe.
Making time to sit quietly and tune into your breath and your unique individual frequency will allow you the insight necessary to raise your vibration with little effort. It really is “the little things.”
If you’ve ever been through a yoga flow class (aka vinyasa yoga) you know… there’s no way you can come out of there without having had your energy completely shifted and elevated.
Moving the body into a series of postures while staying connected to and moving with your breath is powerful, effective and sacred.
Even if you have to push through some resistance to actually get on your yoga mat and do the practice- you can bet yourself that it’s going to pay off energetically.
I like to think of it as an energetic investment- you put the time in, you’ll feel the positive effects.
Sunlight or Nature Dose
This is another one I can stamp with guarantee. Nature is medicine. Truly. And one of the most human, natural, and effective ways to raise your vibration.
Spending time outside soaking up sun rays, putting your feet on the earth, witnessing nature and breathing fresh air will do wonders for your spirit.
You don’t have to travel to the beach or forest to experience it either.
Even if you live in a busy city… there are always ways to connect with nature. In return, she will most definitely soothe, replenish and elevate your energy.
