Every thought or feeling has a vibration that can be measured. The reason you want to raise these vibrations is to become high enough to connect to the power of intention. That place is the sweet spot where you feel joy and happiness, and your dream life will become your reality.
Perhaps Dr. Wayne Dryer put it best in his book The Power of Intention: "What you may fail to see inside is a result of how you choose to process everything and everyone in your world. You project onto the world what you see inside, and you fail to project into the world what you fail to see inside. If you knew that you were an expression of the universal spirit of intention, that’s what you’d see. You’d raise your energy level beyond any possibility of encumbrances to your connection to the power of intention. It is only discord acting within your own feelings that will ever deprive you of every good thing that life holds for you! If you understand this simple observation, you’ll curb interferences to intention.”
Wayne, you are awesome and you raise some wonderful points. Here are seven ways to raise your positive vibrations. Let’s get high, people!
1. Become conscious of your thoughts.
There is a popular saying that goes, “Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones.” Every single thought that comes into your head has an impact on you. When you change those thoughts and think positive, happy, sparkly thoughts, they become things too. This won’t happen overnight — or maybe it will. We’re all different. Start with the one-pound positivity thought weight and build from there. When a negative thought comes into your head, thank it for showing up and dismiss it.
The more you do this, the more positive thinking will become natural. Come up with some affirmations and place them in spaces where you’ll notice them and read them throughout the day. Post them on your bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator, or on the dashboard of your car. Every time you see one, read it in your head or out loud at least three times.
2. Make meditation a regular practice in your life.
Even if you only have a minute, take time to be silent. Meditating is a time when you connect with a higher power and your intuition. I used to have the hardest time meditating. I had trouble sitting still and clearing my mind, which meant I needed it more than ever, so I made the practice a priority. It doesn't matter how you do it or how long you do it; all that matters is that you do it.
3. Become conscious of the foods you eat.
Some foods vibrate low and some vibrate high. If the food you consume is covered in pesticides, it will leave you feeling weaker. So will artificial, chemicalized processed foods. The good, high-vibrational foods are organic fruits, veggies, nuts, soy, and virgin olive oil. On the low vibrational list are flour-based cereals, dairy, and sugars.
This is not always true for everyone. Really paying attention to how you feel immediately after eating something and how you feel two ours after eating something is the true test. Start paying attention.
4. Reduce your drug and alcohol use or cut it out of your life completely.
Alcohol and almost all artificial drugs vibrate low. Besides the actual substances vibrating low, you may find yourself hanging out with people who vibrate low too. They also do drugs, are looking for drugs, hang out with people who sell drugs, or are pressuring you into doing more drugs.
In my past I ran with a crew that drank and did drugs a lot. At first I didn’t participate. Eventually I tried it simply because I wanted to hang out with them and be on their level, and I didn’t want to miss out on “all the fun.” It seemed fun at first, but then I realized that they would only hang out with others who were partying. It wasn’t fun anymore, and I was vibrating at a super low frequency.
5. Become conscious of what your music is telling you.
Lyrics of hate, pain, violence, drama and fear send messages to your subconscious. If you want to attract love, listen to songs about real, passionate, long-lasting love. If you want peace, listen to music about peace and relaxation. If you want to drink too much, crash your car, get cheated on by your boyfriend, and get in a fight, listen to country music. (I’m generalizing I know... but you get the point.)
6. Be aware of your home environment.
You're in your home a lot, which will affect your vibration. Prayers, paintings, photographs, crystals, statues, rocks, mantras, books, magazine, flowers, plants, the colors on the wall, and even the way your furniture is arranged all create energy. Get your home high by getting your feng shui on!
7. Reduce the amount of low-vibrational television you watch.
Many shows on TV are violent dramas that focus on the real world. It’s a constant stream of negativity brought directly to your home. On top of that, there are commercials that have you thinking you need pills to fix your problems and that you have to buy expensive jewelry to show someone you love them.
8. Become aware of the vibrational levels of your acquaintances, friends, and extended family.
You can raise your own energy levels by hanging out with people who vibrate highly. Choose to surround yourself with people who are empowering, have the same morals as you, and see how much you rock. Your friends are a reflection of you, and since you are obviously awesome, your friends must be just as awesome.
9. Practice random acts of kindness and expect nothing in return.
Give some money to someone less fortunate than you. Donate to a cause you believe in. Pay for the toll of the person behind you on the parkway. Send a thoughtful gift to someone you haven’t spoken to in years. Donate clothing to a shelter. Pick up a piece of garbage and throw it away. Don’t do it for the thank you and don’t expect one. Do it out of the kindness of your heart.
10. Practice compassion and forgiveness.
Forgiving and having compassion for someone who hurt you may be the hardest thing for you to do on this list, but it’s one of the most important. You are no longer the victim and your abuser holds none of your power. Thoughts of revenge are low vibrational while thoughts of forgiveness are high. Just by thinking thoughts of forgiveness about someone in your past without taking any action will raise your vibration.

Awesome Heinrich’s Burning Question: “Why do bad manifestations happen within seconds while the good stuff seems delayed? Take today for example. I realized something that sent my blood pressure racing. Now I am so pissed that I decide to embrace my pissedness. Within less than a minute, an irate customer calls me, now I am really mad. Then my sibling sends me the most arrogant message, now I am fuming like a volcano. Then my partner sends me messages which concern finances, all of this in less than 10 minutes… Yes, I have now %$&*#* exploded. Now, on days when I am feeling really happy and giving out tons of smoochy love puppy kisses, feeling so confident that I could run for president within a second, one odd %^*&^$ good thing happens. Why can’t good events follow in the same sequence as bad events? Why can’t one good thing happen after the other within minutes when I am feeling like a freakin’ ray of sunshine and smiling so broad that I could possibly develop arthritis in my jaws?”
Dear Awesome Heinrich,
The short answer is: Positive events can manifest just as quickly and voluminously as negative ones.
And yes, I can hear your follow up question now: “So, why the %$&*#* don’t they?”
Here’s why the %$&*#* they don’t:
You see, we, as in we humans living today, have this stupid, hair brained, not even remotely useful belief that anything that isn’t known, that hasn’t been specifically defined, is almost certainly going to be bad. If you can’t see into the darkness, there’s definitely a monster lurking in there. If someone walks up to you in the street, they’re probably begging for money, or are about to rob you. If you go to a party where you know no one, you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a horrible time. If you go on a blind date, you imagine the worst case scenario, you know, just in case. If someone brings a dish to your pot luck and you don’t know what it is, or it looks different from what you expected, you automatically assume it’s going to taste like ass. Strangers are dangerous. Change is scary. The unknown is a bad thing.
In short, we are, not by nature but by training, a negatively focused people. We expect things to go badly, especially if we’re not sure what’s going to happen.
How manifesting is like gravity. Sort of.
Now, if you’ve been studying the Law of Attraction at all, you’ll know that what you focus on, you get more of. So it stands to reason that if you are generally negatively focused, as in, your automatic, knee-jerk reaction is generally one of dread, you’re going to be adding to the energy of the unwanted. As you keep adding to it, that energy speeds up. This is what sciencey people would call momentum. The energy increases in volume and velocity. In other words, it gets bigger and faster and more and more of a force to be reckoned with.
Think of the energy that you’re focusing on as a planet. The more you focus on it, the bigger the planet grows and as you add to its mass, its gravitational force increases. More gravitational pull means that it’s easier to get sucked in by the planet by merely getting into the vicinity of it, and the harder it is to tear free once you’re caught in its orbit.
So, if there are two planets, one we’ll call Planet Fear (representing what you don’t want) and one we’ll call Planet Awesome (representing what you do want), our propensity as humans to focus negatively (again, not by nature, but by training) will have grown Planet Fear to the size of, well, let’s say Jupiter. In case you don’t remember anything about astronomy, Jupiter is pretty freaking huge. It has a gravitational pull 2.5 times that of the Earth.
Planet Awesome, having been a bit neglected, focus wise, is currently the size of Pluto (which I will always maintain is a planet, goddammit!), whose gravitational pull is 8% of Earth’s. It’s a bit on the teensy side. With such a weak force of gravity, you have to get up really close to it to be pulled in, and it’s easy to be pulled out of orbit by say, Planet Fear, which just happens to be passing by to deliver a swift kick to the nads before flipping you off and then snickering loudly as it spins away. Planet Fear is kind of an asshole. Go figure.
Grow the right planet
So, there you are with two planets to choose from. One’s got a lot of mass and speed going, the other, not so much. When you focus on one of the planets, the energy it represents starts to manifest. The speed at which those manifestations come in is directly related to the momentum that energy has behind it. In other words, manifestations from Planet Fear come easily and quickly, while manifestations from Planet Awesome come more tentatively and timidly.
This is not, however, how it has to be. You can deliberately choose to focus on Planet Awesome and grow it, while letting Planet Fear wither away. If you don’t keep giving it your attention, you see, it will begin to shrink and slow down. The problem is that most people only ever focus on Planet Awesome when they want something (kind of like believing in God but only praying when you’re hung over…). The rest of the time, they’re running on auto-pilot. And if the automatic programs that are running are fear based (and they usually are), Planet Fear is going to be growing by default while Planet Awesome impotently wobbles along on its teensy weensy axis.
The solution – or how to manifest the good stuff fast
Fortunately for you, I have the solution to this dilemma. Ready? Here it is: Practice focusing positively even when you’re not actively trying to manifest something. This will add momentum to Planet Awesome while taking it away from Planet Fear. Being a Happy Shiny Puppy every once in a while isn’t really going to do that. You have to change the automatic programs, the ones that are running all day, every day. And the only way to do that is to be just a bit deliberate for a little while, until the habit of positive focus is established.
The good news is that once your Planet Awesome has gathered some increased momentum, it will begin to suck you in easily just like Planet Fear used to do. In other words, once you’re over the initial hump, it’ll get easier and easier to add momentum to the energy of what you want.
Of course, focusing positively will also make you feel a lot better, but apparently, for many people, that’s not worth the effort on its own. *sarcastic eye twitch*
Once your Planet Awesome has loads of momentum behind it, you’ll not only feel really good most of the time – it’ll be really easy for you to feel amazing and much harder to fall into a funk – you’ll be bombarded by a cascade of positive manifestations. You’ll have days where everything just seems to go right, it’s just one awesome thing after another, and you’ll barely be able to catch your breath between joyous moments. That’s when life gets really fun.
How to get there
If you want to grow the momentum of your own, personal Planet Awesome, here are some tips on how to do that:
- Expect things to go well. This might seem like kind of a “duh” thing to say, but it’s one of the most powerful changes you can make. When you’re facing the unknown, say to yourself “I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be awesome.” This is my personal mantra and it totally works as long as you actually have a positive expectation. You may well find yourself having negative knee-jerk reactions to the unknown and unexpected for a while, but keep practicing and that’ll turn around. Remember, it’s all about building momentum.
- Dedicate about twenty minutes a day to deliberately focusing positively. You can meditate, or visualize your life the way you want it to be, or just play with your dog or cat. Do something that makes you happy, but do it deliberately and notice the good emotions.
- Notice and celebrate even small manifestations. It’s so easy to dismiss small manifestations as meaningless and not worthy of appreciation. But celebrating the small stuff is one of the fastest ways to build positive momentum. If you see a beautiful flower by the side of the road, celebrate that you noticed it and that it’s there. If someone smiles at you, celebrate that. If you find a dollar in the street, do a happy dance. If your boss is less nasty today, that’s worth appreciating. Noticing even small positive changes and events and consciously rejoicing in them will begin to shift the balance from negative to positive. Think about it: there are a lot more small events in our lives than big ones. If you react negatively to all those small events, that’s A LOT of momentum. Train yourself to celebrate anything and everything, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your manifestations start to become full of awesome.
It really is as easy to manifest positive stuff into your life as it is to manifest the negative. But what shows up in your reality is always determined by your vibration, which is shaped by your focus. If you’re not currently being bombarded by awesomeness, if you seem to have an easier time manifesting unwanted crap, then you’ve got to redress the balance. You have to build more positive momentum. You may think you’re predominantly positive, but if your manifestations say otherwise, you’ve got some more work to do. Give your Planet Awesome some love and you’ll become a Happy Shiny Puppy manifesting superstar in no time.
