In essence, everything you see around, you wouldn’t exist without thoughts and vibrations. Consciousness continues to live on even after we die, which shows that reality operates as a strong illusion. If we want to understand how the multiverse works, we have to go beyond the 3D world we see before us and tap into what holds it together – frequency.
We influence our reality every second based on our thoughts, energy field, and vibrations. In other words, we can create our reality according to the frequency at which we operate. By increasing your frequency, you have a much easier time attracting things and people into your existence, which positively affect you.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ― Nikola Tesla
Below, we’ll give you more insight into how you can raise your energy levels to bring more positivity into your life.
Here are seven ways to increase your frequency:
Eat lighter foods, like raw fruits and veggies.
Dense foods such as meats, processed foods, and alcohol lower your vibration. Eating foods that don’t come from nature weigh you down and therefore decrease your frequency. However, eating lighter meals that have a lower karmic load, such as fruits and veggies, will naturally raise your energy levels. Foods that come from nature have a lot of prana, or life force energy.
Boxed foods and meats have much less life force energy, making you feel dull and unenthusiastic about life. If you want to feel more vibrant, here are some foods to include in your diet:
- grains like quinoa and brown rice
- raw dairy
- eggs on occasion
You want to avoid alcohol and any mind-altering substances as well; while they will help ease your mind, they act as depressants that numb you, which will negatively impact you in the long run.
Be mindful of the TV shows, books, and music you consume.
Just like the foods we eat can either increase or decrease our vibration, so can the types of entertainment we allow into our lives. While we should keep aware of current events, overconsumption of news and social media can drain our life force energy. Much of the press focuses on the negative occurrences in our world, so watching too much of it can raise cortisol levels and put us in a pessimistic mindset.
The entertainment we choose should uplift us and give us a sense of peace. Anything that causes discord or fear in our energy field should either be eliminated or significantly reduced to enhance our energy. Instead of spending hours scrolling social media, which tends to leave people feeling anxious and depressed, why not watch an inspirational video or TV show? What we give our attention to expands in our consciousness, so by feeding our brains positive information, our whole world will start to become brighter.
Get out into nature!
One of the best ways to increase your frequency sits right outside your front door. We evolved to spend plenty of time in the sunshine, but our modern environments filled with overstimulation and artificial lighting have far removed us from what our bodies need. Make sure to spend at least 15-30 minutes per day getting some fresh air, as Vitamin D can help alleviate depression and boost your immune system.
Practice meditation and breathing exercises.
To raise your consciousness above the limited ego, you have to slow down your breathing and go deep within to access your soul. Meditation and breathwork offer some of the best ways to increase your frequency while providing many health benefits, such as better concentration, lower stress, and reduced risk of high blood pressure and heart disease, among others.
Meditation involves quieting and the mind and paying attention to the breath, which will ground you in the present moment. Eventually, you’ll notice your racing thoughts will start to dissipate, and you’ll have much less attachment to them. Many people allow their thoughts to torment them, but in meditation, you’ll realize that you exist beyond your mind. You have opinions, but they don’t define you.
You should perform the breathing exercises before meditating to prepare the mind and body for deep concentration. Below, we’ll go over some of the best breath techniques that will relax you and raise your frequency at the same time.
– THE 2-TO-1 EXERCISE
For this exercise, you will exhale for twice as long as you inhale on a single breath. The sympathetic nervous system becomes less stimulated during this exercise while activating the parasympathetic nervous system. This will help slow down the heart rate and relax your body as your breathing becomes less shallow and more grounded.
Inhale and exhale as deeply as possible so you push out any accumulated toxins and carbon dioxide within the body, which will increase blood flow to the heart and lungs. Make sure you sit up straight in a chair or lie down on a bed for this exercise. Keep your spine aligned and your arms at your sides with the palms facing upward. Contract your abdominal muscles to push out any extra air.
– THE 4-7-8 BREATHING EXERCISE
Also known as the “Relaxing Breath,” this breathing technique especially helps people with insomnia to fall asleep faster. Creator Dr. Andrew Weil describes this breathing exercise as “a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system.” Dr. Weil developed the 4-7-8 breathing method to help people combat insomnia as well as reduce stress and anxiety in their daily lives. This exercise works so well because it helps people feel more grounded by increasing mindfulness and soothing the nervous system.
To perform this exercise, simply inhale through your nose for four seconds, hold for seven and exhale through your mouth for eight seconds. During the training, keep the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth just behind your front teeth. Concentrate on keeping your breaths consistent, and try to do the exercise at least twice a day.
– BELLY BREATHING
Most people breathe shallowly through their chests, which only increases feelings of stress and anxiety. To get the most benefit from your breath, make sure to take deep, slow breaths through your diaphragm. Harvard Health says this type of breathing will slow your heart rate, stabilize blood pressure, and allow you to fall asleep easier.
– ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING
Originating from a yoga breathing practice called pranayama, this breathing technique involves alternating the breath between nostrils. To start, place your right thumb on your right nostril and inhale deeply through the left. When you’ve inhaled fully, pause, remove your thumb and place your ring finger on your left nostril. Then, exhale slowly and deeply. Repeat this exercise for several breath cycles.
Move your body.
As you can see from this list, raising your frequency mostly involves taking care of the mind and body properly. In our fast-paced world, many of us neglect our mental and physical health, which only lowers our vibration. Not only does exercise improve our physical health, but it keeps our minds healthy as well. Experts recommend getting at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week as well as strength training exercises for all muscle groups at least two times per week.
Focus on feelings such as gratitude, love, and generosity.
Our emotions play a significant role in determining our frequency. High vibe emotions like love and forgiveness make us feel lighter and more vibrant, while negative feelings like anger and envy cause heaviness within the body. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t honor your feelings, but don’t allow yourself to dwell on them. Allow them to pass through you, and try to remain in a joyous, loving state as much as possible.
Hang out with positive people.
Don’t allow people to steal your energy away; make sure you surround yourself with positive people who will uplift you. Negative people tend to drain others of power because they have none to offer themselves, so avoid these types of energy vampires whenever possible. You may attract them because of your infectious positivity, but that doesn’t mean you have to give them your energy and time if you don’t want to.
Nothing in the universe would exist without energy and vibrations, including us! At our core, thoughts and life force energy allow us to remain in human bodies, so if we want to level up in life, we should focus on increasing our frequency.
As we said above, maintaining your health with proper diet, exercise, meditation, and immersing yourself in a positive company will help to raise your vibrations. Also, avoid overconsumption of negative media and news, and concentrate on positive emotions such as love, gratitude, and compassion.
If we all did this, imagine how much more peaceful and blissful our world could become!
