Low Vibration VS High Vibration
When we exist in a state of lower vibration, we are likely to experience feelings of despair, overwhelm, short temperament, negative thinking, and general feelings of lack. However, we can consciously (and unconsciously) move our physical and mental states into higher frequencies as we evolve spiritually, mentally, and physically. We might not consider that making positive changes for ourselves has the potential to alter our body chemistry, but it most certainly can (and does)! Typical high-vibration characteristics are peacefulness, mindfulness, regard for others, regard for one’s own physical and mental health, feelings of abundance, feelings of natural euphoria, joyfulness, and interconnectedness (humans, animals, universe, etc).
So how can you be sure that you’re operating at a more elevated state of being? Here are three of the biggest signs I’ve pinpointed along my own exploration.
1. Noticing Recurring Themes
Right now on the planet Earth, it is warmer in Antarctica than it is here in Ohio. While the last couple of winters have been more wintry than in a long time, I remember heavier winters during my youth. It seemed that we bundled up and went outside no matter what the temperature, and the more snow the better. However, as an adult who commutes to work each day you are less thrilled when you hear about the 7-10 inches of snow expected. You learn to start your day about an hour earlier, drive cautiously, and to be forgiving when other drivers are being overly cautious. Then again, you can never be too cautious driving on snow and ice. The recurring theme in my life as of late has been patience, most mornings for the last couple of months. But I’ve noticed the theme of patience turning up in other places as well. I’ve noticed that when I demonstrate patience in situations that demand it, not only does it enhance the experience but it also allows me to recognize other little lessons, snippets of beauty, and interactions that I might have otherwise missed.
Whatever theme is currently turning up in your life on repeat, you are wise to claim this as an opportunity for deepening your practice in this area.
2. Learning to Practice, Instead of Avoid
When you develop a desire to practice those recurring themes, in addition to simply recognizing them, this is the second step, and you are on your way to approaching challenges with a totally new mindset! You are not only recognizing the themes that are calling out to be mastered, you are becoming eager to practice getting better at those themes. And trust me, there will always be new themes that stand out to you. This is your subconscious mind letting go of old patterns and embracing a new way of growing from what was once a past struggle. You are on your way to confidently facing new challenges as they arise in your life because you understand the importance of practice. A definite sign you are increasing your vibration!
3. Facing What Appears to Be the Most Difficult Task
My yogic mentor, Ali Kamenova (the Inventor of Interval Yoga), suggests that when you are working on a new series, do not avoid the postures that appear to be the most challenging. Spend more time on them, master them. This is the perfect advice for any new or aspiring yogi! The most challening postures are the ones that test your balance and push you in your ability to synchronize your mental and physical awareness (my favorite aspect of yoga). These are the postures that need to be worked with the most, because working through them connects the body and mind in a way that strengthens them both. In the same way, when we begin to recognize that the most challenging tasks in our lives are the ones we should be prioritizing as “most important” and are willing to do so with a calm, collected, determined attitude — this is a sure sign you are evolving and are increasing your vibration from within. Well done : )
