Everything in the Universe is energy, so raising your vibrational frequency is one of the key factors in manifesting positive outcomes. Even with the best of intentions it can sometimes be hard to stay positive when youâre exposed to theÂ chaos and negativity in the world. Be on the lookout for those things that get you down and do something uplifting to counteract that yucky feeling.
Here are 10 ways to protect yourself from negativity, raise your vibrational frequency and power up your manifestation.
1.Â Â Â Â Neutrality
The Power of Neutralityâ˘ is a universal principle and one of the most powerful tools for raising consciousness and maintaining a positive outlook.
The definition of neutrality is:
âEvery situation is neutral. It has no meaning until we assign our interpretation which can be positive, neutral or negative.â
Instead of allowing circumstances, relationships or events to throw you into a funk, step back and assess the situation from a neutral position of acceptance. Then choose either a neutral (itâs trivial, unimportant or I canât change it) or a positive (even if I canât see anything positive in it right now, I know it will turn out perfectly) interpretation and response (focused on the outcome you want).
Even everyday things like sitting in a traffic jam can affect your vibrational frequency. In this situation you can choose a neutral response (I canât do anything about it, Iâll just wait patiently and not get upset) or a positive response (I get more time to listen to the radio or an audio book, do some quiet contemplation, focus on the traffic jam clearing etc.) rather than getting frustrated and angry at the delay.
Remember, manifestation happens all the time and if you get stuck in the mire of the problem, you are manifesting more of the same. So focus on the solution you want and youâll manifest that outcome. This is as important for world events as it is for personal situations. The chaos that we see around us is a sign of major change for the better. So many people have awakened as a result of the chaos in the world, so by focusing on positive outcomes, youâre adding to the collective consciousness and creating positive change.
2.Â Â The Right People
Who do you hang out with?
If the people around you are wallowing in negativity, theyâll dragÂ you down too. Get away from these âenergy vampiresâ, whether theyâre friends, family, social media connections, work colleagues or clients. If they thrive on drama, gossip or complaining, theyâre not the right people to be around.
Choose to be with positive people with high ideals, shared philosophy and conscious ambitions. Choose to be with yaysayers, not naysayers. Choose to be with people who support you and your purpose, vision and goals. Their positive focus on your intentions will add high-octane fuel to accelerate your manifestation.
3.Â Â Avoid Mainstream Media
The goal of the mainstream media is to indoctrinate and generate fear andÂ distract us from the pursuit of happiness. The news distorts the truth and fails to report the reality of the world we live in in order to perpetuate the illusion. In the US particularly, the mainstream mediaâs programs and ads are filled with subliminal messages too. Thereâs plenty of evidence to prove this if you look for itâŚ but use neutrality and donât get bogged down in the problem!!
So, switch off the TV or be very selective about what you watch. Seek out uplifting movies or channels such asÂ Gaiam TVÂ on the internet. Tune in to your response to whatever youâre watching and if you get that sinking feeling, it means your vibrational frequency is dropping, so switch over to something that makes you feel good or, even better, GREAT!
4.Â Â Listen to Music
Music is one of the most effective ways of raising your vibrational frequency and making you feel positive â as long as itâs not the blues!!
If you need a boost, listen to your favorite artist or genre and sing or dance along to the music. Whether it has a great beat or a great message, as long as it has the feel-good factor youâll quickly feel on a high.
If youâre doing a job you donât particularly enjoy, or your mind keeps dragging you into negative thoughts, grab your MP3 player, pop in the earbuds and get grooving. It really works!
5.Â Â Train Your Brain
When a negative thought pops into your head, switch your mind immediately to something positive. If you feel sad, think of something that makes you happy: puppies, kittens, babies, your loved ones or whatever is your particular âhappy thingâ.
If youâre worried or afraid, switch your mind to a memory of overcoming a big challenge or a major achievement.
If you find yourself dwelling on your problems, think instead of all the possible solutions or the outcome that you want.
The more you practice switching off the negative thoughts, the more you train your brain to think only positive thoughts and focus on positive outcomes. You then become a magnet for more positive things to come to you and you have less and less cause to feel negative.
6.Â Â Get Out in Nature
Connecting with nature is very therapeutic and a great way of recalibrating your energy and the focus of your thoughts and feelings. Even if you live in a city, there are parks you can go to and feel the grass beneath your feet and reconnect with Mother Earth.
There are many physical health benefits from grounding by getting into direct contact with the Earth, even for just a few minutes â you can read an article about this atÂ Natural News.
As well as the physical benefits there are also huge emotional benefits from being in nature. Taking in the beauty of nature is very uplifting. Look at the scenery, listen to the sound of water running over rocks, the calls of birds, the buzz of insects, the rustle of leaves and so on. The sound of silence is also very calming. We recently visited Mount Rainier National Park, and standing amongst the trees and feeling the atmosphere of peace and serenity was profoundly uplifting.
If youâve been attacked by one of the âenergy vampiresâ I mentioned earlier, hug a tree. The calm slow energy of trees counteracts the grating energy from a close encounter with a negative person. Ask permission of the tree before you move into its energy field as everything in the Universe has consciousness; even the Earth itself.
Ask Mother Earth/Gaia to help you release negative energy and visualize it draining from your body into the ground to be neutralized.
Whether itâs going for a walk or a run (and if you can do that in nature, even better), yoga, pilates, dancing, riding (a bike or a horse), a trip to the gym, a game of tennis (or whatever sport you enjoy), exercise is a great mood lifter.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions about how and why exercise affects mood, but inÂ this article by the American Psychological Association, Michael Otto, PhD, a professor of psychology at Boston University is quoted as saying âThe link between exercise and mood is pretty strong. Usually within five minutes after moderate exercise you get a mood-enhancement effect.â
So jump up and get your mojo working!
According toÂ Dr Emma Seppala, meditation
- Increases positive emotions
- Increases life satisfaction
- Increases memory
- Improves concentration
- Increases social connection
âŚ as well as a whole host of other benefits.
Like anything worth doing, it takes regular practice to get yourself into a meditative state quickly and easily, but just a few minutes of quiet time each day can keep you positive, get you in touch with your higher self and guides, and deliver inspired ideas to get you moving towards your manifestation goals.
Iâd say thatâs worth it, donât you agree?
If youâre starting out, using guided meditations can help. I love the channeled meditations (with awesome music) atÂ orindaben.com. They have a wealth of free meditations you can download to put on your phone or mp3 player, some as short as 5 minutes.
9. Get Inspired!
If you find yourself drifting into old habits of negative thinking (and thatâs normal because of how the brain works), or youâre going through a challenging time in your life, find something that inspires and motivates you to get back on track. It could be reading a favorite book, listening to an audio tape or speaking to a friend who is positive or inspirational.
Something I find particularly encouraging is listening to stories of how other people overcame huge challenges or obstacles and succeeded through faith and determination. All of the big achievers had times of hardship when they could have given up, but they soldiered on and achieved their lifeâs ambitions BECAUSE of the challenges, not despite them. Itâs the challenges that make us strong.
Whatever you choose to inspire you, always remember that nothing is impossible and that YOU can do it TOO!
10. Pamper Yourself
Sometimes we just need to take some ME time and pamper ourselves. Do something deliciously relaxing. The pace of life is so fast these days that we can get burned out and thatâs when our vibrational frequency drops and those negative thoughts can take hold.
One of the easiest ways to pamper yourself is to take a nice relaxing bath. Add some Epsom salts to ease away any aches and pains, and lavender oil for soothing, relaxing and balancing. Light some candles and play some background music; the kind youâd use for relaxation or meditation. Then just lie back and soak.
Treat yourself to a massage, have a reflexology session, Reiki energy healingâŚ these are just a few suggestions. Do whatever will make you feel good and ENJOY it.
I know I said 10 ways, but I love to over-deliver and inspiration struck as I was looking for the images for this post. So here are two more suggestions for youâŚ
11. Get Creative
Immerse yourself in something creative, like writing, painting, sculpting, needlework, woodworkâŚ something that will achieve a tangible result. Being âin the flowâ and âin the zoneâ is one of the key factors in creating a happy life. You are completely âin the momentâ, lose all sense of time, tune out everything in your external environment and have complete concentration.
Plus the thrill of holding your creation in your hands is sure to raise your vibrational frequency.
12. Be Grateful
We take so much for granted and can get stuck in dwelling on what we donât have rather than what we do have in abundance. This is a sure fire way to lower your vibrational frequency and manifest the opposite of what you want to create in your life.
Think of all the ways you are blessed â with physical health, great relationships, your home, family, vehicle, petsâŚ everythingÂ in your life. Keep a gratitude journal and read through it when youâre feeling down to remind yourself how blessed you are.
Cut Out the Cause
So Iâve given you a bunch of ways you can stay positive and raise your vibrational frequency. The best way of all to stay positive is to avoid the situations that trigger the negative thoughts and feelings â tackle the cause not the symptoms.
Take action on the changes you need to make whether it is your work, relationships, where you live or whatever your particular triggers are so that it becomes easier and easier to stay in that place of love, joy, peace and abundance and manifest everything good and great in your life.
