5 Ways to Raise Your Vibration and Manifest What You Want

5 Ways to Raise Your Vibration and Manifest What You Want

Everything in the Universe is made up of energy. From our thoughts and feelings to the food we eat, everything vibrates at its own frequency. Joy, happiness, and love all fall on the higher end of the vibrational scale and since most of us want more of those things, we have to raise our vibration to match.

Here are 5 ways to raise your vibration so you can attract more of what you want.

1. Write Out Your Ideal Day

This is a great starting point because it not only helps you get clear on what you want to manifest, it also allows you to feel the emotions that the experience will bring you. Let’s say you want to attract a new romantic relationship. Imagine you and your ideal partner spending the day together. Now grab your journal and start writing out the details of that day. What are the two of you doing together, what are you wearing, how are you feeling? Visualize the two of you holding hands or going on date and capture as much detail as you can as you write it out. By doing this you’re basically writing the script for your life. While you don’t need to know who the exact person is you’re attracting (it’s best to leave this open to the Universe), you are getting clear on how you want to feel and what you want that experience to be like for you.

2. Create Empowering Affirmations That Support Your Ideal Vision

Now that you know what you want, create affirmations or mantras that you can repeat to yourself that support your desired outcome. This is going to train your mind to seek out opportunities that will bring you the experience you want. Also, what we focus on expands, so the more positive our thoughts are, the easier it will be to attract more positive experiences. Using our example of attracting a new relationship, you might want to use affirmations like “I am worthy to receive love, I am ready for my new partner to appear, or I radiate love and attract love every day”. Write these affirmations out daily in your journal or put them on post-it notes around your house as reminders.

3. Make a Vision Board

Vision boards (or dream boards) are great because they help us see what’s possible for us. A vision board is a collage of pictures and/or quotes that give you a visual representation of what you want. Having pictures of what you’re manifesting will raise your vibration because when you look at it, you’re putting your mind in the state where it already has those things. To attract a new partner, you can use images of places you’d like travel together, pictures of happy couples, or quotes about love. You can easily create one online by collecting images and putting them together in a collage, or you can print out images or find them in magazines and glue them onto a larger piece of cardboard to keep in your home.

4. Practice Gratitude

Being grateful for what you already have is a sure-fire way to attract more good things into your life. Take a few minutes each day to focus on the people, things and experiences you’re grateful for and write them out in your journal. This might be a list of 10, 50 or even 100 things. The key is to get into the mindset of gratitude because it’s that feeling that will signal to the Universe that you want more of the same. When you’re attracting a new relationship, you can write out what you’ll be grateful for once that person shows up, but make sure to write it in the present tense. For example, “I am so happy and grateful for the delicious dinner my wife and I just had at our favourite restaurant”.

5. Laugh and Have Fun

This might seem obvious, but being happy is one of the easiest ways to raise your vibration. When we’re laughing, playing and having fun we’re in the present moment and not thinking about what we don’t have. We can even trick ourselves into being happy by smiling and changing our physiology, or by watching silly cat videos online. Being in a place of joy will also make you a magnet for more joy to be attracted to you – people love to be around happy people because it makes them feel better. Going back to our example of attracting a romantic partner, a great thing to do is to simply smile at people and be kind. Say hello to people, wish the guy at the coffee shop a good day, or hold the door open for someone. All of these simple things can spark a conversation that might lead you towards the relationship you’re seeking.

Attracting what you want in life involves aligning your thoughts beliefs and energy with your desired outcome. Applying these 5 tips to help you raise your vibration will help you manifest what you want by training your subconscious mind to seek out opportunities and will signal to the Universe that you’re open to receiving the experiences you want.

7 Questions to Ask in a Job Interview That Will Impress the Interviewer

7 Questions to Ask in a Job Interview That Will Impress the Interviewer

Recruiters might hold thousands of interviews in their careers and a lot of them are reporting the same thing—that most candidates play it safe with the questions they ask, or have no questions to ask in a job interview at all.

For job applicants, this approach is crazy! This is a job that you’re going to dedicate a lot of hours to and that might have a huge impact on your future career. Don’t throw away the chance to figure out if the position is perfect for you.

Here are 7 killer questions to ask in a job interview that will both impress your counterpart and give you some really useful insights into whether this job will be a dream … or a nightmare.

1. What are some challenges I might come up against this role?

A lesser candidate might ask, “what does a typical day look like in this role?” While this is a perfectly reasonable question to ask in an interview, focusing on potential challenges takes you much further because it indicates that you already are visualizing yourself in the role.

It’s impressive because it shows that you are not afraid of challenges, and you are prepared to strategize a game plan upfront to make sure you succeed if you get the job.

It can also open up a conversation about how you’ve solved problems in the past which can be a reassuring exercise for both you and the hiring manager.

How it helps you:

If you ask the interviewer to describe a typical day, you may get a vibrant picture of all the lovely things you’ll get to do in this job and all the lovely people you’ll get to do them with.

Asking about potential roadblocks means you hear the other side of the story—dysfunctional teams, internal politics, difficult clients, bootstrap budgets and so on. This can help you decide if you’re up for the challenge or whether, for the sake of your sanity, you should respectfully decline the job offer.

2. What are the qualities of really successful people in this role?

Employers don’t want to hire someone who goes through the motions; they want to hire someone who will excel.

Asking this question shows that you care about success, too. How could they not hire you with a dragon-slayer attitude like that?

Advertising

How it helps you:

Interviewers hire people who are great people to work with, but the definition of “great people” differs from person to person.

Does this company hire and promote people with a specific attitude, approach, worth ethic or communication style? Are the most successful people in this role strong extroverts who love to talk and socialize when you are studious and reserved? Does the company reward those who work insane hours when you’re happiest in a more relaxed environment?

If so, then this may not be the right match for you.

Whatever the answer is, you can decide whether you have what it takes for the manager to be happy with your performance in this role. And if the interviewer has no idea what success looks like for this position, this is a sign to proceed with extreme caution.

3. From the research I did on your company, I noticed the culture really supports XYZ. Can you tell me more about that element of the culture and how it impacts this job role?

Of course, you could just ask “what is the culture like here? ” but then you would miss a great opportunity to show that you’ve done your research!

Interviewers give BIG bonus point to those who read up and pay attention, and you’ve just pointed out that (a) you’re diligent in your research (b) you care about the company culture and (c) you’re committed to finding a great cultural fit.

How it helps you:

This question is so useful because it lets you pick an element of the culture that you really care about and that will have the most impact on whether you are happy with the organization.

For example, if training and development is important to you, then you need to know what’s on offer so you don’t end up in a dead-end job with no learning opportunities.

Companies often talk a good talk, and their press releases may be full of shiny CSR initiatives and all the headline-grabbing diversity programs they’re putting in place. This is your opportunity to look under the hood and see if the company lives its values on the ground.

Advertising

A company that says it is committed to doing the right thing by customers should not judge success by the number of up-sells an employee makes, for instance. Look for consistency, so you aren’t in for a culture shock after you start.

4. What is the promotion path for this role, and how would my performance on that path be measured?

To be clear, you are not asking when you will get promoted. Don’t go there—it’s presumptuous, and it indicates that you think you are better than the role you have applied for.

A career-minded candidate, on the other hand, usually has a plan that she’s working towards. This question shows you have a great drive toward growth and advancement and an intention to stick with the company beyond your current state.

How it helps you:

One word: hierarchy.

All organizations have levels of work and authority—executives, upper managers, line managers, the workforce, and so on. Understanding the hierarchical structure gives you power, because you can decide if you can work within it and are capable of climbing through its ranks, or whether it will be endlessly frustrating to you.

In a traditional pyramid hierarchy, for example, the people at the bottom tend to have very little autonomy to make decisions. This gets better as you rise up through the pyramid, but even middle managers have little power to create policy; they are more concerned with enforcing the rules the top leaders make.

If having a high degree of autonomy and accountability is important to you, you may do better in a flat hierarchy where work teams can design their own way of achieving the corporate goals.

5. What’s the most important thing the successful candidate could accomplish in their first 3 months/6 months/year?

Of all the questions to ask in a job interview, this one is impressive because it shows that you identify with and want to be a successful performer, and not just an average one.

Here, you’re drilling down into what the company needs, and needs quite urgently, proving that you’re all about adding value to the organization and not just about what’s in it for you.

How it helps you:

Advertising

Most job descriptions come with 8, 10 or 12 different job responsibilities and a lot of them with be boilerplate or responsibilities that someone in HR thinks are associated with this role. This question gives you a better sense of which responsibilities are the most important—and they may not be what initially attracted you to the role.

If you like the idea of training juniors, for example, but success is judged purely on your sales figures, then is this really the job you thought you were applying for?

This question will also give you an idea of what kind of learning curve you’re expected to have and whether you’ll get any ramp-up time before getting down to business. If you’re the type of person who likes to jump right in and get things done, for instance, you may not be thrilled to hear that you’re going to spend the first three months shadowing a peer.

6. What do you like about working here?

This simple question is all about building rapport with the interviewer. People like to talk about themselves, and the interviewer will be flattered that you’re interested in her opinions.

Hopefully, you’ll find some great connection points that the two of you share. What similar things drive you head into the office each day? How will you fit into the culture?

How it helps you:

You can learn a lot from this question. Someone who genuinely enjoys his job will be able to list several things they like, and their answers will sound passionate and sincere. If not….well, you might consider that a red flag.

Since you potentially can learn a lot about the company culture from this question, it’s a good idea to figure out upfront what’s important to you. Maybe you’re looking for a hands-off boss who values independent thought and creativity? Maybe you work better in environments that move at a rapid, exciting pace?

Whatever’s important to you, listen carefully and see if you can find any common ground.

7. Based on this interview, do you have any questions or concerns about my qualifications for the role?

What a great closing question to ask in a job interview! It shows that you’re not afraid of feedback—in fact, you are inviting it. Not being able to take criticism is a red flag for employers, who need to know that you’ll act on any “coaching moments” with a good heart.

As a bonus, asking this question shows that you are really interested in the position and wish to clear up anything that may be holding the company back from hiring you.

Advertising

How it helps you:

What a devious beast this question is! On the surface, it looks straightforward, but it’s actually giving you four key pieces of information.

First, is the manager capable of giving you feedback when put on the spot like this? Some managers are scared of giving feedback, or don’t think it’s important enough to bother outside of a formal performance appraisal. Do you want to work for a boss like that? How will you improve if no one is telling you what you did wrong?

Second, can the manager give feedback in a constructive way without being too pillowy or too confrontational? It’s unfair to expect the interviewer to have figured out your preferred way of receiving feedback in the space of an interview, but if she come back with a machine-gun fire of shortcomings or one of those corporate feedback “sandwiches” (the doozy slipped between two slices of compliment), then you need to ask yourself, can you work with someone who gives feedback like that?

Third, you get to learn the things the hiring manager is concerned about before you leave the interview. This gives you the chance to make a final, tailored sales pitch so you can convince the interviewer that she should not be worried about those things.

Fourth, you get to learn the things the hiring manager is concerned about period. If turnover is keeping him up at night, then your frequent job hopping might get a lot of additional scrutiny. If he’s facing some issues with conflict or communication, then he might raise concerns regarding your performance in this area.

Listen carefully: the concerns that are being raised about you might actually be a proxy for problems in the wider organization.

Making Your Interview Work for You

Interviews are a two-way street. While it is important to differentiate yourself from every other candidate, understand that convincing the interviewer you’re the right person for the role goes hand-in-hand with figuring out if the job is the right fit for you.

Would you feel happy in a work environment where the people, priorities, culture and management style were completely at odds with the way you work? Didn’t think so!
