Planet Earth is known as the school that offers incredible opportunities for a soul’s advancement in consciousness. You can make peace with all of the low, dense vibrations existing in the same place as all of the high, light-filled vibrations.
However, as we accept that there are non-integrous aspects of this planet, we must do our best to not engage with them. Simply reach for the people, places, and things that have positive attractor fields. Other people are going to dabble with negative attractor fields according to their individual soul’s evolution, and it does not have to affect us.
Here is a list of low-vibration things many people stick with out of habit, out of ignorance.
Negative Entertainment – horror movies, crime television shows, gossip rags and programs, gangster rap, death metal.
All of these things calibrate below the line of integrity. They are not life-affirming. The low vibrations may remain with you for a half an hour or more after you’ve left them behind. When you have created a negative attractor field around you with these low vibrations, you may experience a snowballing of seemingly unrelated negative events in your life. Co-workers become ornery, bills get higher, appliances stop working, etc.
Do not chastise yourself for past consumption of these things, but rather, move forward with greater awareness. You were not a bad person for stumbling into those things without information. Somehow, you were vibrationally aligned with those shows and songs.
Perhaps they really raised your vibration from a lower place (despair or depression). Now that you have a new vibrational setpoint (optimism), you can reach for better-feeling types of entertainment – documentaries, inspirational books, classical music, etc. Consistently exposing yourself to these high vibrations will create a positive attractor field around you, and you will begin to live in a different world. You will wonder why you ever tolerated the previous world!
Processed Foods – glyphosate, refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, food dyes.
These substances do not enhance your cells. In our modern world, it is hard to avoid them all the time. Do not add to their power by feeling strong negative emotions while consuming them – just do your best to consume more life-affirming foods over time. Be easy about it. Spend a lot more time in the perimeter of the grocery store rather than the middle aisles. Add a few more plants to your meal plan this week, and make sure they are plants you enjoy. Do not push yourself to eat things that you resist. Feel appreciation for access to clean foods, and the inspired actions will follow!
Mainstream News Media – TV, online, print.
The news media reflects, amplifies, and caters to the lower levels of consciousness in our society. Any honest person can concede that the modus operandi is to influence public behavior rather than to objectively report events. Bold-faced lies are now the norm, not the exception. There is a pervasive hatred for integrous values that have long been cherished by the majority; thus, there is a sinister push to subject the masses to the whims of narcissistic few who are addicted to the dualistic perpetrator/victim mentality and the perceived payoffs. Adult temper tantrums and explicit violence are said to be ‘progressive’.
We are grappling with the Luciferian Inversion of good and evil. (See Truth vs Falsehood by Dr. David Hawkins for a comprehensive exploration of this phenomenon.) Nearly every news segment has an undercurrent of spite or negativity that is hard to miss. Is it worth it? Do you really think you are being informed? Consider going on a news fast, and watch what happens.
Having Strong Positions – political, religious, ‘anti-this’, ‘march against that’.
Strong positions are a product of the untamed ego that seeks to control the world, bulldozing dissenters in the process. Strong positions will make you suffer no matter how much you justify them.
If you will, for but a moment, view the people in the world as operating at multiple levels of consciousness rather than either good or bad, you may be able to lighten up and feel some peace.
“He is who he is, and he can’t be anyone else” feels a lot better than “He needs to change”.
The person with that belief system over there really isn’t a threat to you over here. Everyone secretly believes that their worldviews are right. Are you really up to the task of convincing all of them that your background makes you more qualified than them to pick good leaders and policies? Isn’t it easier to go and live the life that’s waiting for you, over there with your loved ones at the dinner table? Be a little more neutral, and little more benign. You will feel more aligned with all of the good things that you praise.
“Wear the world like a light garment.”
Low Vibration Words and Attitudes – complaining, hating, blaming, whining on a regular basis. Vulgar and obscene language. Addiction to self-righteous anger and narcissistic victimology.
Have you ever noticed the self-fulfilling prophecy of those who constantly lament living in poverty and dealing with impossible living situations? They repel people around them, and they keep attracting more things to lament. Even semi-hopeful people who make sarcastic or theatrical remarks are sabotaging themselves (“Yeah, why don’t I just say some positive affirmations, I’m sure that will help me!”) The Universe picks up the feelings behind the words, and the outer world reflects the inner world.
Become more refined in your language and attitude. Bark less, and wag more. Say ‘wonderful’ and mean it. Get a little more goosed up and enthusiastic about life. The more you do it, the more your circumstances will improve. You may even attempt to love (at a distance) those with whom you’ve been at odds – and miracles will unfold in your life. The things that were going wrong will vanish, and grace will sneak in the back door to surprise you.
When you have genuine good tidings for all, you know real joy. Suddenly, there is an awareness that the ‘payoffs’ of hating were never worth it. You release your grip on the hot coals and find that it’s rather nice to not torture yourself anymore. There is real compassion for humanity and its struggles.
Cluttered, Dirty, or Uninspiring Living Spaces – smells like animal pee, piles of boxes blocking hallways, thick layers of dust, broken or dated furniture, torn screens, dull colors, etc.
Some people become used to a home that would be considered alarmingly unsafe or uncomfortable to the average person. Others become used to small piles of junk in garages or in their rooms. There may be minor things about your home that don’t feel right, and you can’t put your finger on why, but you just shrug it off. “Who has time to be impeccably clean and organized?”
It’s important to move things around every so often so that you can freshen up the energy of your living space. Move all of the books around on your shelf. Redo all of the magnets and papers on your fridge. Have a candle and a photo switch places. Remembering that there are ten thousand possibilities for your home reminds you that there are ten thousand possibilities for your life!
Even a closet stuffed to the gills but hidden away from view can lower your vibration. Clear out the cabinets and drawers every so often. Throw away all of those hot sauces you keep squirreling away (no judgement here). When you clear out the air and debris, the chi will flow nicely through your home, and you will experience more consistent happiness. Consider rearranging the furniture and adding a plant here and a crystal there.
Learn about Feng Shui via a consultant, course, or book. It will be a worthwhile investment. You’d be surprised by what a few well-placed mirrors can do for you. Be mindful of the corners of your home and individual rooms. Are they clean and aesthetically pleasing?
I hope this list helped you reflect on ways you can refine your vibration. If you can, give up one or two habits that no longer serve you – maybe that one negative word you use every day, or the toxic news website you view regularly.
Be aware of the quality of everything surrounding you. This stuff matters.
