If you’re feeling low, anxious, tired, depressed or unmotivated then you probably want to shift this emotional state as quickly as possible. This is especially true when experiencing the purging process or “dark night of the soul” when past trauma rises to the surface for healing. It can become quite inconvenient and exhausting when this state is prolonged for extensive periods of time but there are ways to completely shift your frequency right now.
Here are 16 ways to rapidly elevate your vibration (especially if it feels like an emergency!!):
1. Head Outside into Nature & Walk Barefoot on the Earth
One of the quickest and most effective ways to shift your energetic state is to head outside into nature. You can visit your local park, beach, forest, mountains or even walk around your neighbourhood if there are plenty of trees around. The combination of fresh air, sunlight and greenery are extremely healing for your energy.
If you wish to ground yourself (also known as “earthing”) you can also take your shoes off and walk on the earth – this will help balance and align your mind, body and soul very quickly while clearing away negative energetic debris. Nature has the magical ability to heal and transmute negative energy so frequent trips outdoors will keep your vibration purified.
2. Meditate & Breathe
There are plenty of meditation videos on YouTube which include guided meditations, nature sounds, shamanic drumming, binaural beats, solfeggio frequencies and many more. It’s best to listen to your preferred meditation track with headphones so you can immerse yourself in the moment while focusing on your breathing.
I highly recommend listening to 528Hz love/miracle tone healing frequency meditation music as it helps repair DNA while bringing positive transformation. It’s also healing to visualise white golden light filling your entire body while inhaling, then exhaling white golden light into your external surroundings. The conscious act of breathing allows you to stay present in the moment and elevates your vibration in the process.
3. Take an Epsom Salt Bath or Shower
You can purchase Epsom salt from your local grocery store and then keep it in your bathroom. If you have a bathtub then pour a cup of Epsom salt into the water; otherwise rub the Epsom salt into your skin while in the shower and leave it on for 5-10 mins before rinsing it off.
Epsom salt contain therapeutic properties which cleanses your auric field and clears negativity. It’s great to use frequently especially if you’re an empath who absorbs negative energy from people and surroundings.
4. Have a Floatation Tank Session
Floatation tanks (or sensory deprivation tanks) contain water with a high percentage of magnesium allowing you to float in an enclosed soundproof tank in complete darkness. Being able to shut off your five senses from your external environment enables a greater awareness of your inner state helping you to fully relax and let go. The magnesium in the tank cleanses your energetic field and calms your nervous system, while sensory deprivation allows you to let go of your physical self which ultimately raises your frequency.
5. Burn White Sage & Palo Santo Around Your Home
Whenever you feel a sense of negative energy in your home it’s important to purify the space by burning white sage and Palo Santo. This ritual has been used by American Indians for thousands of years to remove dark spirits and to cleanse a space. You can purchase white sage and Palo Santo online or from New Age stores, then burn it around your home by setting a positive intention and visualising white golden light radiating from the smoke. This will quickly clear your space of any negativity and will make you feel much lighter.
6. Listen to High Vibrational Music
Music can be extremely therapeutic and healing during difficult periods, however being conscious of selecting high vibrational music will significantly enhance the effects. For example, you can listen to classical, trance, shamanic or meditation music which emit healing vibrations and have a lighter frequency compared to rock or heavy metal music.
It’s also important to steer clear of mainstream music which is played on the radio or TV as they usually contain negative subliminal programming within the lyrics. Being mindful of the type of music you choose to surround yourself with can instantly raise your vibration and help centre your mind.
7. Get Your Body Moving with High Intensity Exercise
Exercising enables you to sweat out and eliminate toxins from your physical body allowing a higher vibrational state for your mind, body and soul. You can choose any activity which you enjoy such as running, dancing, yoga, training at the gym, swimming, etc. The main focus is to get your heart rate elevated so you are actively moving your body to release negative emotions, thoughts and energy. There is a powerful shift in your emotional and energetic state when you become fully present in your physical body via movement.
8. Burn Incense, Candles & Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is literally therapy for your senses! High vibrational fragrances such as lavender, sandalwood and lemongrass contain powerful extracted aromatic essences from plants which can shift your entire mood and create a beautiful feeling within your space. You can find your preferred fragrances within incense sticks, incense cones, essential oils or candles and use them within your home to dramatically shift the energy to a more peaceful uplifting vibe.
9. Journal Your Negative Emotions
Expressing your thoughts and emotions on paper is extremely therapeutic when feeling down. This simple exercise enables you to release and let go of any negativity which may be bothering you, leaving you lighter and clear headed. To enhance the effect you can burn or rip up the pages once you’ve finished to signal the removal of this energy in order to create space for something better.
10. Talk to a Loved One or Someone You Trust
Connecting with another human being who is on the same wavelength enables the opportunity for deep healing and vulnerability. Being able to openly discuss and share your problems without judgement also allows the release of painful emotions and creates the opportunity to overcome challenges. This will instantly uplift your soul and raise your vibration once you realise that you’re not alone and have support. It’s also extremely healing to hug and express gratitude for having this person in your life.
11. Clean & Declutter Your Home
Having an immaculately clean home is essential for raising your vibration. It’s important to always keep your space tidy – vacuum, wipe down bench tops & tables, declutter your wardrobe, take out garbage, do your laundry, donate or throw out items you don’t use, etc. This ensures a healthy flow of energy throughout your home and helps you have a clear mind. The art of minimalism has amazing energetic benefits while also maintaining an aesthetic environment.
You can also freshen the air with aromatherapy, flowers and plants to allow a sense of tranquility in your space. Plants help filter the air in your home so you can breathe better and enhance your overall wellbeing.
12. Eat a Healthy Meal with High Vibrational Food
Sometimes feeling low vibrational is the result of not getting enough nutrients and vitamins in your diet. It’s really important to firstly eliminate all junk food containing sugar, salt, GMO’s and all other artificial additives from your diet – this also includes alcohol, soft drinks, energy drinks and coffee as they also negatively impact your frequency. Replace all of this with healthy whole foods such as fruit, vegetables, nuts, superfoods, spring water, green juices and herbal teas. Also be mindful of choosing organic products when possible as they offer higher nutritional value. This positive change in diet will result in elevated energy and amazing physical health.
It’s also important that you take the time to cook your own meals with fresh ingredients so that you infuse your food with your own energy. You can even set a positive intention before eating to incorporate more magical high vibrations.
13. Use Crystals Around Your Home
Crystals are magical tools for healing and enhancing positive energy. You can wear them as jewellery or place them around your home to transmute negativity and raise the energetic frequency. It’s a great idea to place crystals (such as black tourmaline and selenite) under your bed when sleeping for energetic protection. You can even sleep while holding your favourite crystal to work more closely with its healing energy. It’s highly recommended that you place crystals in each room of the home to generate a stronger positive flow of energy, however make sure that you regularly cleanse crystals to keep them at their optimum healing levels.
14. Listen to Positive Affirmations
Changing your thoughts and beliefs can prove extremely challenging when feeling negative, however you can learn to reprogram your inner dialogue by listening to positive affirmations. You can find many tracks on YouTube on a range of topics including money, health and relationships. Listening to positive affirmations consistently for a month can create powerful changes in the way you perceive yourself and greatly improve your manifestation abilities. It’s powerful to listen to affirmations while you sleep so that your subconscious mind can absorb these positive beliefs which will then start shifting your external reality if practiced over an extended period of time.
15. Get an Energy Healing
There are many different types of energy healing modalities such as reiki, crystal healing and kinesiology which aim to clear and rebalance energy blockages. It’s great to research the technique that you feel drawn to and then book a session as soon as possible. Energy healing sessions can be extremely beneficial for your mental, emotional and physical state; however it will be more effective when you keep an open mind and allow yourself to trust and receive the healing.
16. Have Fun & Do Something You Enjoy That Nourishes Your Soul
Having fun and enjoying life is an extremely high vibration which instantly makes you feel amazing. It’s really important, however, to find fun activities which actually nourish your soul such as laughing, creating art/music, playing with animals, travelling, getting a massage, spending time with loved ones, singing, watching funny movies, etc. Getting in touch with your inner child by being more lighthearted and playful towards life is an excellent way to elevate your energetic state.
