I do not know about you, but I freaking love feeling LIT UP. Not the drug kind; the happy kind, the connected kind, the kind that makes you feel like you are vibrating at the frequency of the sun. It is an addictive feeling and the more attention I pay to raising my vibration, the more often I find myself enjoying the bliss that comes with it. But it takes work. As nice as it would be to flip a switch and light up like a darn Christmas tree (especially on days where you are feeling tired, sad, or just plain lazy), it does not work like that.
This winter was a long one for me: away from my friends, living in a home that was not my own, and being rained on for four months straight. I thought I was immune to the February blahs, but turns out they are a real and totally tricky thing to shake. However, knowing how great it feels to get lit, I had no choice but to try— and goodness me did I have to work at it.
Raising your vibration takes daily practice, it takes intention, and it takes an open heart to receiving the energy of the Universe. If you are anything like me, you do not feel up to this amount of work every day. But if I can give you one nugget of encouragement: TRY! Even if that means starting with two minutes before you get up in the morning or once a week when you can fit a little spiritual juice in between the gym and brunch. Schedule it in. Make it happen. You will be amazed at how quickly you will start to notice things shift. You may even begin to look forward to that time (you will). And soon, you will be vibrating at a level you did not even know you could. Want to know the coolest part? When we light up and shine bright, we light the path for others to do the same.
Here are some of my favourite tools to help elevate:
- Go for a walk in nature.
- Attend a Kundalini yoga class.
- Carry crystals containing properties that I wish to embody.
- Light a candle.
- Receive a reiki treatment.
- Read a book that inspires me. *Check out Rebecca Campbell’s “Light is the New Black.” It might change your life.
- Have plants growing in every room of my house.
- Listen to music.
- Use essential oils.
- Clear up clutter (this is a big one for me).
