A common obstacle in manifesting the life you want is having a low vibration. I’m talking about where your energy is at, how your spirit is. It’s not hard to be vibrating at a low level and not even notice it. A gloomy day, skipping breakfast, body aches can all cause an unintentional low vibration. And you can go around all day like that without really noticing.
The problem is that your guides cannot communicate with you in such a state. You are not open to receiving information. You are not in a state to create new realities in your life. That is why it is so hard to “hear” or “feel” when we have recently lost a loved one, or suffered personal loss. It is also hard to manifest a great new job when you are super depressed about being fired from your last one. In order to get to that higher plane, you have to raise your hum. Here are a few ways to do it:
My favorite is breath work. First, check in with yourself. How do you feel internally? Where is your vibration on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being really down in the dumps and 10 being euphorically happy? Take note. Then, inhale for a count of 4, hold that breathe peacefully for a count of 4, and exhale to a count of 8. I do this three times and try to allow my mind to clear as I do. Check in again. Where is your vibration now? It should be higher. You may only hold this state temporarily, but use it often, whenever you feel that you’re running low.
Another technique is to simply ground yourself in nature. Go outside. Take off your shoes if possible and connect your soles with the earth. Breathe deeply and consciously, noticing the feelings in your body and whatever thoughts are passing through your mind. There is no need to do anything to change what you notice. Just become aware. Your vibration will raise naturally in this state.
A alternative is to close your eyes and focus on your heart chakra. First, check your internal state. Then, go to your heat chakra, located in the center of your chest. See it glowing like a brilliant green emrald. Allow this green glow to expand in a circle beyond your body. Continue expanding it with your breath until it is comfortably outside your body. Then, allow memories or images of funny moments, loved ones, sweetness or happiness come to you. Allow yourself to smile and allow your heart to expand into these loving feelings. Check in again with your vibrational state – where is it now?
Raising your vibration can be done as often as needed. I do it before meditating, or asking questions or manifesting. I use it when working with horses or when I am stressed or worried about something. I do it every time I want to communicate with my guides or my higher self. Try it.
