Ride the Vibrational Wave to Happiness

What is Vibration?

For those of you who are familiar with Law of Attraction, the following introduction, might be a little too basic for you. Bear with me. For those of you who are not so familiar with Law of Attraction, at its most basic, the concept is that like attracts like. Or as I like to say like vibration attracts like vibration. What do I mean? Well, when you break it down to its most fundamental level, we’re nothing but big balls of energy vibrating at a frequency that is perceptible by our senses. In fact, everything in our world is nothing but big balls of energy vibrating at different frequencies.

What’s meant by “perceptible by our senses” is that a frequency falls within the ranges of our senses (i.e. we can see it, and/or hear it and/or taste it and/or smell it and/or touch it). There is a lot of things in our world that our senses cannot detect, but still exist. Electricity, radio waves, and ultraviolet waves come to mind.

In this context, like vibration attracts vibration means that we attract things that are vibrating on the same frequency that we vibrate at. How do we know what frequency we’re vibrating at? The answer lies in how we feel. Feeling appreciative, for example, vibrates at a different frequency than feeling sad. In fact, we vibrate on a whole spectrum of frequencies, directly correlating to how we feel. On one end of the spectrum, there are feelings such as love, appreciation, happiness, and optimism. On the other end of the spectrum, there are feelings such as hate, anger, sadness and pessimism. And there’s a whole bunch of frequencies (i.e. feelings) that fall in between.

Quickest way to manifest, or is it?

With this understanding, the quickest way to manifest anything you want in life, then, is to get on the vibrational frequency of whatever it is you want before getting it. So if you want money, for example, then you have to feel abundant before the manifestation of money comes. If you want to find love, then you have the feel love and feel loved. And so on and so forth. In other words, you have to feel good about whatever desire you want before you want it. While this advice is spot on in regards to helping you achieve your dreams, reality can sometimes be quite different.

Case in point, how easy is it for you to feel abundant when the first of the month rolls around and a whole whack load of bills come in? Or how can you get in the frequency of feeling love when it seems like you’re the only person in the world, who is single on Valentine’s Day? How healthy can you feel when you’re in any sort of pain?

It’s very tough. Not only can it bring you down about that particular subject, but it can also bring you down, period. So, is there a remedy for this all too common issue? Fortunately, there is, and that’s what this Life Hack article is about.

Riding the vibrational wave

I call it riding the vibrational wave, and it goes like this. Find a way to feel good about anything other than your object(s) of desire and then ride that good feeling into the object of desire. So, if it’s money you desire and you feel negative about money, then shift your focus and make an effort to feel good about something else, that’s easier to feel good about. Maybe you like your job, or your kids, or your home or the way you look, or maybe you like watching Sunday Football.  It doesn’t matter really. Once you’re in a good state then (and only then) come back to the subject of money.

And when you do, be careful not to jump into an area of that subject that has a high negative emotional charge. Keeping with the example of money, if you get down every time you pay your bills, don’t pay your bills right after getting yourself in a good feeling place. Find something else about the subject of money that you at least feel neutral about (ideally you’d like to visit an aspect of money that you feel good about, if possible). And then start to think about money in such a way that makes you feel good. Examples can include, “I have a steady income ensuring that I can at least pay for the fundamentals of life” or “Money is the engine of a lot of amazing things in this world including; charity, medicine, academic research, helping people etc.” or “Money has given me many amazing experiences in my life like vacations and schooling and times out with friends”. You get the point.

You can do this with any subject matter. If you desire a relationship, then don’t think about your crummy ex-partners, for example. Go more general, and think about your amazing friendships (a relationship is still a relationship) or think about the times your life was enriched through interactions with other people, or go online and find 20 people (on a dating website) who is of potential interest to you. Again, focus on an aspect of relationships that is at least neutral if not positive.

When it comes to your health, once you feel good, start focusing on the parts of your body that are going right. Maybe you can walk with no problem, or your senses are all working wonderfully, or you can go to the washroom by yourself, or the fact that all of your organs are working in perfect order without any input from you. The things to appreciate about your body are almost endless if you give it a little bit of thought.

How to raise your vibration

So how do you get to a place of feeling good? Well, there are many ways to do that. Appreciation for the things you have in your life is one of the quickest and easiest ways. Taking even 5 minutes to write down everything you appreciate in your life will have a big effect. There are other ways as well. The following article highlights 33 ways in which you can feel good (or raise your vibration in the law of attraction speak). Examples include getting outside in nature for a while, trying something new, unplugging (after reading this article of course), and more. You’ll start to notice a shift in how you feel, and once you do, then you can ride the wave to the object of your desire.

And if you follow the advice in this article, then you’ll start to notice a shift in how you feel about that particular subject in general. You’ll start to feel a little more positively about money, and a little more optimistically about relationships and a little more hopeful about your health, and that’s exactly what you want. It will start small, but if you keep it up, you’ll start to feel better and better, and soon enough, you’ll have a positive outlook on your objects of desire, at which point you’re well on your way to manifesting those desires.

Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

Thanksgiving: It’s About The Simple Things

Thanksgiving, a day of pure gluttony, football, and possible uncomfortable situations with family members that you may or may not like. Oh, yeah, and the whole “know and reflect on what it is to be thankful and grateful.”

During the holiday season many people forget what this time of year is bout and are too worried about getting the “early-bird” deals on Black Friday and making sure that they have the perfect gifts for their loved ones. I am sort of a “Grinch” when it comes to the holiday season, mostly because of that mentality by many of the poeple around me.

But instead of being grinch-like this holiday season, I decided to simplify things and get back to what this time of year is actually is about; being thankful for what I have and what I can give.

Simplify

I’m not a “minimalist” in any real sense, but in the last few months the talks of Patrick Rhone and others have got me to rethink my stance. Can you really have too much stuff?

Absolutely.

And with all that stuff comes the burden and the weight of it on your back.

If you feel that the things around you are out of control, maybe it’s time to simplify and be thankful and grateful for what you have and use. Here are a few things that you can do to simplify:

  • You know those gadgets in the drawer that you said you were going to sell? Well, time to get the listing on eBay and sell them. Or, send them to a place like Gazelle. Even if they are old and won’t get money, you can at least recycle them.
  • Get rid of things you don’t need. Like old books, clothes, tools, etc. Have something that’s been laying around forever with no use? Donate it to a charity or church. If you aren’t using it, someone else could be.
  • Find your productivity tools and stick with them. Use tools and gadgets that serve multiple purposes so you can simplify your tool set.

Be Mindful

You don’t have to be a master Buddhist or meditator to be mindful (although, it can definitely help). Being mindful comes down to being cognizant of the present and not keeping yourself in the past or future. It’s about living in the moment and being aware of yourself and everything around you. It’s just being.

Without getting too “California” on you, it is super important to be mindful during the holiday rush. Rather than worrying about the things that you forgot at your house on the way to relatives or thinking about the next stop in your endless holiday travels, just breath and think about what you are currently doing.

Spend the time with your family and friends and don’t crush the moment. Try not to concentrate so hard on getting the perfect photo of the “awesome moment” of the day and actually miss the awesome moment.

Being mindful over the holidays will help you be with your families, friends, and yourself allowing you to enjoy your time.

Reflect

As the year is coming to a close (yes, it really is that close!) it’s a great time to start reflecting on what you have accomplished and what you haven’t. Within the next few weeks we will have a more throrough reflection article here at Lifehack.org, but reflecting every now and then over your holiday break is a great way to see where you have been doing well in your life and where you need to improve.

Advertising

Reflection shouldn’t be used to “get down” on yourself. Reflection should be used to take an honset inventory of what you have accomplished, how you handeled situations, and what you can do better. If you journal everyday (a daily form of reflection) it may be a good time to start going over some of the things that you have written and start to put together a year’s end journal entry. I mean, how else will you write your autobiography?

But, seriously, reflecting on yourself makes you aware of your successes and faults and helps you plan and make goals for the coming year. It makes you a better person.

So, while you are stuffing your face with bird, stuffing, and mashed taters’, remember that the holidays are much more than the superficial things. Use this holiday to become a better person.
