The best thing any of us can do in this life is ‘go for it,’ and by this, I mean to grow and develop ourselves beyond who we currently are. For no matter who we are, there is always huge potential to learn, understand, and experience more of life. The neat thing is that the more you actively engage in life, with intention, the higher you will raise your vibration.
However, most of us seem content to live each day limited by what we think we can and can’t do, constrained by so many rules, within societies, families, religions, and most importantly, by our own deep-seated beliefs. And it is the ‘beliefs’ we hold onto that are responsible for the circumstances that have manifested as our current life! This includes our level of abundance (or lack of), our satisfaction with our relationships (or not), and if we are happy with the employment we have (or not).
It’s essential to notice that NOT EVERYONE BELIEVES THE SAME THINGS, and this means that NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME LIFE EXPERIENCES AND CIRCUMSTANCES. Some people out there, right now, are living a better life than you, doing the things you wish you could do, and they are having a blast! So, why is it possible for them and, more importantly, why aren’t you fully immersing yourself in life having the incredible experience that you dream of?
By default, we unconsciously limit ourselves many times every day!
How often do you take the time to listen to the voice in your head, the one that never shuts up, the one that is just busy recycling old thoughts over and over again and again? This voice is the unconscious mind, and it takes control of our thoughts every time we are not consciously engaging in actively thinking for ourselves. The unconscious mind tells us things like: we’ll start going to the gym tomorrow, just one more cigarette and then I’ll quit, I’ll apply for that better job next year when I have more experience, I don’t have time to go on that holiday now, it’s hard to make lots of money, etc.
When we are in this autopilot mode, our vibration is dependent on our old programs, the ones that have created for us the life we are currently living.
Our unconscious mind is made up of a set of programs, the operating system, if you like, that drives our daily lives. Now, we need to understand that: WE ARE NOT OUR UNCONSCIOUS MIND! Having said this, it is interesting to note that most of the time, what we do and what we won’t do is still determined by the unconscious beliefs we hold. Our unconscious mind likes to be in control at all times; it wants the ‘known’ and doesn’t like change or being challenged. Its job is to keep us safe and keep our life plodding along, just as it is, business as usual, so to speak.
If our unconscious mind had its way, we would never challenge ourselves. We would continue to work to make money to pay the bills, spend time with family and friends, enjoy two or three week’s holiday a year, and get ourselves heavily in debt buying stuff that makes our ego feel good about our ‘accomplishments.’
This means that when we are living our lives according to this voice inside our heads (on autopilot mode- recycling our most prominent thoughts), our lives will follow a predictable pattern based on things we already know. This is because if we allow the unconscious mind to guide us, we will only be operating from information already stored in our mind as the unconscious mind is not capable of doing anything outside of what it already knows or believes.
Nothing ever happens by chance!
So: our unconscious mind is continually running a set of programs that we have adopted throughout our lives, and just like a computer, you cannot write a program for one thing and then expect to get a different result! Or a garden; if you plant flower seeds, you would be crazy to expect an oak tree to grow.
Our minds are no different from the computer or the seeds that we plant…. We will reap what we are sowing. That is the universal Law of Attraction at work in our lives at all times. WE CAN ONLY EVER ATTRACT TO US THAT WHICH IS A VIBRATIONAL MATCH TO THE VIBRATION (THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS) THAT WE ARE EMITTING!
If these programs (our vibrations- most repetitive thoughts and feelings) do not match what we desire for ourselves, it will be impossible for us to achieve our desires. The good news is that once we understand this, we have the key to achieving anything and everything that we desire for ourselves in this lifetime. The key is this: WE MUST MATCH THE VIBRATIONS OF WHAT WE WANT, AND THEN BY THE LAW OF ATTRACTION, THESE THINGS WILL BECOME OUR REALITY.
“Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Albert Einstein.
This is not magic; it’s just the way our physical universe is programmed to operate. All manifest things are energy and all things resonate at specific vibrations. Abundance, fun, and love have a different pulse that poverty, depression and fear. You already know this and have already experienced it many times within your own lives. When you are angry or standing next to an angry person, the feeling within you is very different from when you feel loving or are in the company of someone who loves you! Think about it for a moment, and get a sense of what it ‘feels’ like when you are aware of these different emotions (vibrations).
Our whole life is made out of our vibration, the thoughts, and feelings that we have…. And our current life circumstances are the result of the accumulation of all these vibrations…. Every time we have been fearful, self-deprecating, worried, lacking, depressed, these thoughts and feelings have added to our vibrations and have become part of our unconscious programs. The most predominant reoccurring thoughts and feelings naturally become the most substantial aspect of who we are, and it is these that have attracted our current life circumstances to us.
This means that you cannot spend the majority of your time thinking thoughts of lack, fear, and worry, and then expect to live a dream life of wealth, abundance, and happiness. The two simply do not match! And YOU WILL RECEIVE ACCORDING TO YOUR VIBRATION, WHICH EQUALS THE MAJORITY OF YOUR THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS!
How can I change my vibration to attract the life I want?
We will keep our existing vibration if we watch the same mind-numbing entertainment, meet the same mates for a drink, engage in the same conversations, overeat the same foods, or continue to live life as we have been doing for the past few years. Life will just continue pretty much the same as it is now!
WE CANNOT EXPECT OUR LIVES TO CHANGE IF WE DO NOT CHANGE THE THINGS WE HAVE BEEN DOING THAT HAVE CREATED THIS LIFE WE NOW HAVE! OUR VIBRATION WILL ONLY CHANGE WHEN WE CHANGE!
There are three sure ways to increase your vibration and therefore allow you to attract the life circumstances that you dream of. From the easiest to the most difficult, or least effective to the most effective, they are:
Easiest method: Positive thinking
So simple, yes? Everyone knows this! Then just do it, starting right now. Change the way you are thinking and feeling now. Begin it now so that you will raise your vibration to attract better things into your life. Do it now! And now. And now. Do it as often as you can, and by doing so, you will notice that your life begins to improve in the direction of your desires…..
However, changing your thoughts alone will not guarantee that your life will dramatically improve, and it’s still more than likely that you will not receive everything that you desire. This is terrible news for everyone who thinks that positive thinking alone will lead to a positive life.
Why would I say that?
Positive thinking that leads to positive feelings is excellent, and I thoroughly encourage everyone to do it as often as possible. However, there is an essential piece to the puzzle of The Law of Attraction that many proponents of it overlook. More is needed if we wish to achieve all of our dreams, and it involves our learning to become the master of our mind.
Scientists know that up to ninety-five percent of the thoughts the average person thinks every day are unconscious. They are a repeat of the same ideas we have been having that have created this life we currently have attracted to ourselves. So, if you are consciously thinking for only five percent of the time each day, and only a few of those minutes are spent thinking positive thoughts about how you want to create a better future for yourself, do you really believe that those few minutes are enough to cancel out, or overwrite, the other ninety-five percent of thoughts that got you to where you are now?
No, they are not! We don’t need to be a scientist to realize that positive thinking for less than one percent of each day will have minimal impact on our existing deep-seated unconscious mind programs. So, unless we change the way we interact with our unconscious mind, our life is likely to remain more or less a continuation of what we are currently living.
Second method: Introducing new experiences into our lives
If we wish our circumstances to change in any way, WE WILL NEED TO LEARN NEW THINGS AND HAVE NEW EXPERIENCES TO ADD NEW INFORMATION TO THE HUGE RESERVOIR THAT IS OUR MEMORIES. Don’t worry; learning is not scary! It’s actually a lot of fun and the beginning of new adventures, so it’s something we should enthusiastically look forward to! Continual learning is essential if we wish to enjoy our lives, for, without new information and new adventures, we soon become stale, predictable, and boring.
New experiences give rise to new thoughts and feelings, and if repeated often enough, will rewire our automatic, unconscious responses as we interact with the surrounding environment. In other words, we are learning new ways of ‘being.’ And by choosing experiences that build confidence, self-esteem, trust, love, and other positive emotions, we will unconsciously begin to raise our vibration and slowly evolve into a better, healthier, and more confident person than who we currently are!
Third method: Go hard-core
At the extreme, we can go hard-core and remove ourselves from our known environment, like Jesus Christ and the Buddha did. By separating ourselves from everything that we currently know, we can begin to reprogram our unconscious minds without the distraction of what we now believe to be true.
If we can come to recognize definite unconscious programs (within our primary operating system) that are not supporting our desire for a better life, we can introduce specific experiences, thoughts, rituals, exercises, etc. into our life. This is to purposefully confront these beliefs that are not benefiting us to break their hold over our responses to life. This will allow us to move more quickly toward beneficial changes.
I think most of us would find this option too challenging, so the best alternative is one of compromise, and the extent to which we wish to better our lives will determine how much effort we invest in upgrading our mind programs.
All of us can do something, starting now, to improve our vibration!
We cannot attract to ourselves a new and improved situation when we are focusing on all the problems we are having in our current situation. It is in our best interests to stop focusing on issues (negative vibrations) and instead focus on solutions (positive vibrations). We need to become consciously aware more of the time and choose all of our conscious moments to focus our powerful thoughts on how we wish our future to be.
We have the ability at all times to choose, either to accept more of the same or to challenge ourselves and choose more that will help propel us towards who we want to become. Choosing more of what has got us here is easy, (and boring) because life conforms to a probability pattern based on our beliefs and habits. More of who we could be will challenge us.
We can begin now by engaging in media that will uplift us (instead of the horror and action movies), eat wholesome foods that support a healthy body (instead of eating comfort foods and alcohol), find new friends that support our future goals (instead of those who want to keep us down at their level). Most importantly, WE NEED TO LEARN TO LOVE AND RESPECT OURSELVES, UNCONDITIONALLY.
Engaging in practices like meditation, mindfulness, yoga, Tai Chi, conscious breathing, sacred sounds, and connecting with nature are some proven ways to help you raise your vibration.
All of us need to understand that life is a journey. There is no fixed destination to arrive at, and we, by our nature, seek to continue to evolve and this means that when we achieve one thing, we will then desire to do more, grow more, and achieve more. It’s built into us to continue to grow and develop our potential, or continue to raise our vibration.
Shared with love and respect for all souls who have chosen to participate in the game of life!
