What does it mean to raise your frequency? It’s the same thing as raising your vibration. Still confused? In a nutshell when we keep our emotions in check, ensuring that we will do anything we can to experience the emotions of happiness, joy, and satisfaction right now– then we are being mindful about how we feel regardless of our situation. Therefore, we are being mindful of raising our frequency or vibration in a positive way.
Many spiritual teachers of our time are expressing the importance of being in observance of ourselves. This means to recognize when you’re feeling emotions (especially negative ones that don’t serve you), and to transmute them instantly, before you can attach a “story” to them.
Negative emotions tend to spiral out of control–that whole “hamster on a wheel” analogy. If we can learn to transmute our negative feelings to positive ones as soon as we start to feel them arise, we will raise our vibration (our energy). What we “put out there,” is what we’ll receive back. You put out negative energy, you’ll feel negative energy. You put out positive energy, you’ll feel the result of positive energy.
This is no easy task but with practice, you can change your thoughts, and thereby change your current situation or outlook on life. For example, the task of rearranging our lives to work from home has sparked a lot of emotions and stress. In these moments, self-compassion and care are essential. If you don’t take care of you, it will be very difficult to take care of others.
Embrace your negative energy as though is was a child in need. If you’re feeling sad, acknowledge and observe, “I am feeling the emotion of sadness.” Then, as you would towards a child say to yourself or out loud, “It’s okay, everything will work out in time.” If you have a work related emotion, “Right now, I’m feeling the emotion of being overwhelmed.” You can transmute that feeling by stating, “I’m not alone in all of this, everyone is feeling the same. Eventually, things will fall into place.”
Try to be the active observer of your emotions and don’t run or shove the emotions away! This will only cause more angst. Remember, that we are a co-creators. A collective unit or family on Earth. We all have an affect on one another, especially right now. The more positive we keep our mind set and emotions, the better we will all be.
