HOW TO RAISE YOUR VIBRATION

Raising our emotional vibration takes a conscious effort. The ability to shift a negative outlook into a more positive one takes time and practice, but eventually, with consistency, we develop an inner confidence in our ability. We become empowered once we've mastered this transformative ability.

As a result, we attract more desirable life experiences and establish an inner acceptance knowing adverse events will quickly pass. Obviously; life has it's ups and downs, after all, we're here in physical form to experience contrast. However, if our vibration is more positive than negative, we won't attract the same life lessons repeatedly.  In conclusion, it's highly beneficial for us to learn how to raise our energy vibration. Outlined below are a few very effective practices.

1. Rev up your Morning Momentum
The moment you wake up start focusing your thoughts on gratitude, listen to uplifting music, or anything that lifts your spirits. You want to build up a positive momentum which will set the tone for the day ahead. Think of it like a merry-go-round. If it's spinning fast with positive vibrations, any adverse event you may encounter throughout the day can't easily jump on the ride if it's spinning fast.

2. Meditate
There are many forms of meditation. Sitting quietly while releasing all thought is one form, but there are many other types. If you find it too difficult to sit quietly, you can start with mindful meditation. Mindful meditation is being fully present in the moment. This means paying attention to whatever you are doing. Don't think or worry about later focus on what you're doing now.  

3. Connect with Nature                                                                                                                      
Go for a walk, sit under a tree relaxing or reading, enjoy the sights, sounds, and fragrance of nature. Being outside grounds us and helps to balance our chakra centers. Bask in the sun soaking up vitamin D, but don't forget sunscreen.

4. Interact with Positive People  
It's been proven that connecting with people on regular bases improves one's happiness. Raise your energy and lower cortisol levels which are believed to cause disease by focusing on the positive things in life.  

5. Smile
Just smiling automatically changes your energy.  Smiling sends a signal to your brain that you're happy. It also relaxes your body and nerves. So if you're down do something to help turn yourself around; watch a comedy on the television, listen to upbeat music, call a friend who can lift your spirits.

6 Eat Healthy
The foods we eat significantly affects our health and mood. Eating a healthy diet of protein, fruits, and vegetables while eliminating processed foods is a positive energy boosting habit.

7. Spend time with Animals
Psychological experiments have shown animals help to reduce stress and depression. Raise your energy vibration by spending time with your pet, friends, or visit a pet store.

Do what makes you happy. You'll attract more positive experiences and you'll be healthier for it!

DID MY SOUL WANT TO EXPERIENCE THIS?

When I was younger, I was mainly focused on the present moment, but over the years I became overly concerned with the future. Mostly concerned about my future financial stability.

How will my husband and I be able to support ourselves? How will we afford escalating taxes and insurance costs in addition to all the other unavoidable cost of living expenses? These financial concerns escalated when the economy took a dive along with our income. Then suddenly life pulled me back into the present moment when I was diagnosis with breast cancer.

My future abruptly took a back seat, as I was suddenly forced to focused on the present moment. Addressing any life threatening health issue drastically changes your outlook. Healing or recovering from any health problem takes time and can not be rushed. It's a day to day journey.

Unfortunately, my journey it's over yet, and I don't believe it's really ever over. During my numerous days of recuperation, I contemplated why I got cancer. Believing that our emotions affect our life and health, I wondered what I did to manifest this experience. Did all my worrying cause this expression of disease in my body? Or is this experience a path I choose before coming into physical form?

I believe it's a combination of numerous things that contributed to my current health condition. I feel my soul offered this path if choices were made in this direction. So what were these choices I thought? And how can I heal and move forward into a healthier future?  

Staying present is the most important lesson I've learned from having cancer. Always being focused on the future you tend to miss the gifts of day to day life. My new motto for the future is doing my best and having faith the future will unfold the way it was intended. Secondly, and most importantly letting go of the past. We all are doing our best, and we can't expect more. The past is in the past and can't be changed so move on not continuing to relive what you didn't enjoy the first time.

Everything that happens to us in life influences the people we become. We are who we are because of our life experiences. Appreciate, honor, and love, who you are and don't allow anyone to treat you with disrespect. People can disrespect you, but you don't have to stick around to listen.

SIGNS SPIRITS ARE NEAR


Have you ever felt the presence of a loved one who passed on? Or repeatedly notice particular occurrences throughout your day that remains you of someone? These are signs of a spirit trying to contact you. If you want to communicate with the spirit world, don't ignore their attempt to reach you, or they may give up. The more you acknowledge spirits, the more they'll try to communicate with you.





Ten most common signs spirits are communicating with you. 

1. Suddenly a comfortably warm room becomes cold. Or you get goosebumps when you think of someone who passed on. These are both signs of coming in contact with spiritual energy.

2. Light bulbs or electrical devices flicker on and off. Sometimes light bulbs blow out repeatedly shortly after replacing. When this happens, a spirit is trying to contact you. Close your eyes and mental ask who it is and trust the first thought that enters your mind.

3. A particular song that reminds you of someone keeps playing on the radio.

4. Finding feathers or coins is a sign a spirit is near. If you repeatedly find feathers in unusual places or a specific coin, this is a spirit reminding you their near.

5. Seeing the same sequence of numbers where ever you look. Every time you look at a clock or totals on receipts, the numbers are the same.

6. Noticing butterflies or other animals in the wild more than usual. Spirits are near when you see these beautiful flying insects or animals.

7.  You notice flashes of lights or orbs in the middle of the night. Orbs are believed to be the soul of spirits. If you suspect someone is visiting you during the evening, set up a camera to capture orbs.

8. Visiting with a loved one passed on in your dreams. One of the easiest ways spirits can communicate with us is in our dreams when our minds are free of daily stress or worries. Keep a dream journal.

9. Smelling a scent that reminds you of someone. For example, someone's favorite perfume or cigarette smoke.

10. Seeing strange smokey figures beside you in photos. This captured image is the energy of spirit.

WRITING YOUR OWN OBITUARY...WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

I read an article about a woman who was dying of terminal cancer, and she decided to write her obituary. This article got me thinking what I would write? So, I decided to write mine.

My OBITUARY



My life had it's ups and downs like everyone else. No, I never thought I was without fault, however, lead to believe I possessed much more than the truth. We're so quick to judge people. We believe we're the ultimate source of truth for outlining the character of another. As the years passed, I realized these opinions were biased perceptions and not fact. Sadly these negative opinions voiced to us tend to be the one's we remember. We end up giving away our belief of who we are to others.

So here's the truth of who I am and not their misguided version. I'm sensitive. Yes, sensitive. ( Sadly I can clearly visualize certain people rolling their eyes mocking my words.) The truth is most of my life I tried to hide this character flaw believing it was a sign of weakness. I hated being weak. I felt weakness created a doorway for others to pass through an easily hurt you, degrade you, rip you apart. As the years passed the problem I encountered was pain festers if it's not dealt with in a positive manner. It builds up then often expressed through anger. It's amazing how many people don't understand that anger ultimately comes from pain and fear.

Unfortunately, I feared many things in life. One fear was no one would love the real me. After all, I felt this often as a child and was blatantly told so on occasions. My problem was these words never faded away but grew stronger. Thank God age provides wisdom along with the accumulation of truths gained through life experiences. Profound experiences such as getting cancer. It taught me many valuable lessons. First, I am loved by many people. Loved regardless of my many faults. Sadly we can't always count on finding this love in places society leads us to believe.

Regardless of where we find love it's all the same. Love is love. Healing is a process, and I've learned it takes time. Patience is key. (Don't think I'll master it before checking out, but not giving up!) I've discovered healing is achieved from doing what you love. I love writing. I love writing even more when I've written something that touches the heart of others. Of course not always hitting the mark, but never giving up.

I love creating things like an outfit. I love the entire process from combining the fabrics, mixing the colors and textures to finally sewing them all together. I love decorating. Creating a theme that transports me to another place in time. I carefully choose each color, material, and nicknack with a particular vision in mind. I love black and white photography and taking pictures that reflect emotion. And I absolutely love an autumn breeze sweeping across my face. Ever since I was a child, this sensation has brought me peace.

I'm a self-starter. I learned how to do many things by teaching myself and solicited the knowledge of handyman skills from people who possessed them. Hate feeling helpless and have a difficult time depending on others. I'm stubborn and refuse to give up which is quite useful when applied to goals. I love to read. My favorite store is Barnes and Noble. Almost every week I'd visit first ordering a decadent coffee then meandering through the aisles exploring the vast selection of books lining the shelves. I'd often fantasize about having the ability to close my eyes and absorb every word ever written. And understand them, of course. lol

I hate injustice. Can't stand liars. Can't tolerate when people put others down for not knowing how to do something. And will never understand how someone can be cruel to another human being or animal. Don't like liver or raw meat. Yes, well-done for me. Cook the shit out of it! Although, I believe I'm getting a little better tolerating a hint of pink.

Through my life, I've laughed so hard I cried. I've enjoyed the company of many great people. Loved sharing my thoughts about life, death, and the afterlife with like minded people. Always possessed an insatiable desire to figure out the meaning of life. Unfortunately, I haven't yet, but at least I've learned how to connect with my spiritual guides and others I've loved who've passed on. It took me years to believe what I saw during meditations as truths but eventually through these events coming to fruition; I learned to believe.

Secretly I look forward to dying. Not that I wanted to die. What I wanted was to experience pure love. Since reading my first book about a near-death-experience, I longed to feel what they described. Every NDE book spoke of this profound feeling of peace and an incredible feeling of unconditional love. Also, I'll understand the meaning of life more clearly, at least that's what I believe.

All in all, I've had a good life. I don't regret anything for each life experience made me who I am, and I am a wonderful person. Faulted but wonderfully caring, hard working, creative, and witty at times. Not the brightest crayon in the box but not the dullest as I continue learning through my love of books.

I always wanted to leave behind something profound; a written word, a piece of art, or a hidden truth given to me from above. However, the only whispers I hear, and a life long lesson I struggled with, learn to love yourself.

CAN'T HEAR YOUR SPIRITUAL GUIDE?

Throughout life, everyone experiences good times and bad times. We live in a world of duality. The yin and yang of life. Sometimes it can be difficult staying positive when we're dealing with challenging times. The good news is we're not alone. We all have spiritual guides, guardian angels and loved one's helping us. However, it can be challenging to hear their guidance.

Communicating with the spiritual world is done by quieting our minds raising our energy vibration. If consumed with negative thoughts, doubt or fear it prevents us from connecting. If your energy vibration doesn't align with the energy of spirit, you can block communication. Spirit energy is positive, loving energy.

Since we're creatures of habit, it can be challenging to let go of fearful thoughts or painful memories. Breaking any habit takes a consistent effort. One of the best practices for helping to break negative habits is meditation. Most people think meditation is only a practice of sitting quietly without thought, but meditation can be walking down a trail in nature. Connecting to nature in silence is one of my favorite forms of meditation.

Once you can achieve a peaceful mind, you'll begin to notice signs. You can even ask your spiritual guide for specific signs for confirmation. Believe you will receive guidance and then pay attention to synchronistic occurrences. Each time you practice this mindfulness, you'll recognize guidance more readily.

To build confidence in your ability to receive guidance try asking your guardian angel to send you feathers or your spiritual guide for numerical guidance. For example, if questioning a decision you've made ask your spiritual guide to send the number three at every turn if you're on the right path or the number 6 if there's a better choice available. After you make this request pay attention. You'll start to notice one of these numbers wherever you turn.

By continuing these mindful practices over time, your belief will strengthen and so will your connection to spiritual guidance. Like anything in life, practice enhances our abilities.

WHO ARE GUARDIAN ANGELS?

Angels are assigned to us by God to respond to our call for help directly or indirectly throughout our life. They exist in higher dimensions of reality though can move at the speed of light. They are energy beings of light that travel at will. Angels can be in several places at a one time since they are pure energy existing in a reality where no location and time exist.

Angels have never been physical beings nor do they have wings as many pictorials portray them. Created equally to all forms of life since everything that exists is energy including yourself. There's no difference between Angels and us except we choose to experience physical life.

For each person, there are two and sometimes more guardian angels. Their job is to bring us circumstances, people, and events that assist us on our life path. Angels also help to heal emotional wounds and ease life challenges while guiding us towards our desires. They can surround us with protective light and calm our worrisome thoughts and emotions.

Angels connect to us from within our minds, but most of us are too busy to hear them. We must quiet the chatter of our minds along with troubling thoughts and emotions to listen to their guidance. Meditation is a successful practice for achieving this connection.

Anytime we focus our attention on angels they move closer toward us. So asking them for guidance or protection calls them closer. They want to help us, but we must ask for their help. They will not interfere with our freewill. Starting a practice of asking for their help daily will increase your connection and recognition of their guidance.

What are your guardian angels telling you? Quiet your mind and listen.
