Raise Your Vibration, Change Your Life

By raising your vibrations, you can always change how you feel. You may not have the ability to change the situation or other people, but you can alter how it feels. Learning how to alter vibrations is a keystone of spiritual work. When you feel differently, people respond more positively to you. 
Life becomes softer and more peaceful, and the flow of life moves in sync to your higher vibration. Over time, you find that you can change many events in life by using the techniques, which you master through the work.

Here are a few simple suggestions:

  1. Connecting to your inner self and the “light” helps with everything because your frequency (or vibrations in your energy field) become higher. People respond differently. You perceive new solutions, and you feel more peace and contentment. A higher frequency equals better results in daily life (reality.)
  2. Reality alters to match the vibrations in your energy field. When you see an event positively, your perspective changes. It can take time to raise your projection of an event, relationship, or outcome, but this works. Change your perception and change the outcome.
  3. When you can’t change the outcome, you can image sending color or calm energy. Love is easily sent by imagining pink light. You can send it to you, the molecules surrounding you, or a situation. Moving into love and turning events over to the universe often brings resolution. (Accept the resolution and decide you have the strength to move through the situation.)
  4. Focus on the good in your life. You’re alive. You are loved. You have a spiritual connection (or you wouldn’t read this.) You have the ability to change your life. This is powerful knowledge, and few people ever arrive at this place.
  5. Believe in your ability to change your life. Believe in the universe. Know there are spiritual forces such as angels, light, and other people who support and believe in you. Find friends who focus on solutions, take a course, or find a coach. Do something. (Meditating is an action, too.)

Meditation:

  • Meditation is one of the keys to the process. Close your eyes and feel your inner self. (When we don’t think, see, or feel anything, we feel the inner self. We also pull back our energy from life.) If you stay in this space for ten minutes, you will feel the inner self. It feels wonderful and peaceful. This part of the self holds the answers. Commune with it quietly.
  • Hold and feel a visual of what you want to experience. If you want happiness and peace, see yourself in this state. If you feel hopeless, create an image of opportunities flowing into your life. If you’re angry, imagine feeling peaceful. Refuse negative thoughts (about anything) and hold onto your visual for 30 seconds. The “new” energy will eventually replace the old energy.
  • Think about love. Love is the one of the key components of the universe. We are loved unconditionally by the universe. Pink light is also love. We can send pink light to our projects, our body, and the people in our lives. Light and love are higher vibrations. Everything in the universe responds to love and light. As you hold more love and light in your “field”, the universe responds more quickly!

Art of Conscious Creation

 

There is a real art to conscious creation. It is taught in alchemy and many branches of metaphysics. The methodology is real, but it must be learned and applied. I am presenting these concepts for those who understand that creating change in the world is only accomplished through changing one’s perceptions, thoughts, emotions and sensations. This article presents a basic outline of simple techniques that are easily applied through practice and self-observation.

Meditation, which is the reception of higher spiritual energy, can also lend insight into the truth of our inner selves, the path of inner knowing or wisdom. This place of inner knowing deepens our faith and belief in a positive outcome. Through sensing this beautiful place “within”, the possibility of a beautiful “real world” can become a viable reality. This is a reality that we not only experience, but can also share to enliven and enrich others’ experiences of the world.

If we focus on lack of love, prosperity or joy in our lives, then we naturally create more of an undesirable state. When we speak about our negative feelings that surround an unhappy state of mind, we create a vibration with our voice, which is sound or frequency that reinforces the appearance of the undesirable state.

The attraction factor of energetic outcome could be called concentration or intent. The creation of positive or negative outcome is achieved through repetition of the focus of the mind, particularly through the experience of strong emotions or sensations. Any intense thought pattern will eventually evoke an emotional state. This will create either physical tension or relaxation in the body. The emotional and physical responses will determine the creation of a positive or negative outcome.

Our proclivity is to create the future through the projection of memories, thoughts and feelings into our “perception of the future”. We generally project our consciousness without awareness of what or how we create. A classic example of unconscious creation can be found by reviewing at any recurrent problem in our lives. This tendency is easily visible if we notice how many times each day that we experience negative thoughts or feelings about the problem. How many times have we felt guilt over a small social blunder? We keep the negative energy around us by focusing on it.

Emotions are feelings, and thoughts, pictures; together they create holograms or powerful mental/emotional images. It is impossible to perform any action without a hologram, and we “program” ourselves with our holograms, so that they become almost automatic, like tying our shoes. In other words, our reality is perpetuated by holograms, which are often subconscious.

Without awareness, we assemble a life based on memories. We expect that our lives will be the same tomorrow — but perhaps we will be older! We actually create our lives on this basis. We expect to wake in the same bed, the same house, the same car, and have the same friends. Our expectations are the form or structure that we use to create the present.

In creating our future, we must experience the exact opposite of an undesirable state — through “creating” positive thoughts and feelings. By calming the emotions or projecting a positive outcome into the future, it is possible to change the outcome of our lives. People usually experience difficulty with creative consciousness because they only think “inside of the box”. Thinking “inside of the box” tends to be linear — assuming that same problem can always be solved in the same manner.

As human beings, we are conditioned by our society to focus our minds negatively. We believe that money is limited; love diminishes over time; we will age a certain amount at a certain age; the destruction of the earth is imminent; and happiness may only be experienced briefly. Why focus on these thoughts when it is possible to entertain a joyous, beautiful reality?

When we choose to focus on positive holograms, reality is naturally altered in a lovely way. An act of will is necessary to create the possibility of this beautiful, joyous reality by retraining the focus of the mind and emotions. It can take time to reprogram holograms, but we can know that our new images are working through the occurrence of positive synchronicity and uplifted emotions. Each moment we have the opportunity to choose what we think is “real”: a wonderful reality or a depressing one. The choice of focus in each moment eventually determines the reality of our experience.

“Thinking out of the box” means feeling and creating pictures or holograms of a desired state that has never or rarely been experienced in our lives. The desired state is created by focusing on positive memories, remembering the positive feelings and thoughts in the present; and, finally, projecting this desired state into the future. (Consciousness and thought have an actual energetic output. Every time we focus on an idea that it is transmitted to others. We have the potential power to create a positive visualization and to share it by simply meditating on it.)

Keep in mind that much of our world, according to esoteric texts, is an illusion or reflection of our thoughts, actions and words. The “real” part of our world is a reflection of the higher parts of our nature. Our perception of the positive aspects of the world relies on our own attunement to our higher nature or true self…

Daily meditation practice is essential in creating active change. A practice should consist of five or ten minutes of focused imagery. In this meditative state, we should see our desired hologram, while experiencing it in the NOW. It is best to visualize the final result, as though we are experiencing the desired reality in the moment.

The manifestation process is quickened by writing down precisely what we want (this forms a mental picture) on an index card. Positive emotional experiences should be written on the other side of the card. Imagine that the two sides of the card come together as one manifestation. Look at the card each night before sleep. Imagine that this happy state is fully realized.

By following these steps, we can create our desired life and actually materialize it by changing our thoughts, feelings and actions. There are many classes, books and practices about manifestation. One of the secrets is listening to what the Universe wants for you, by listening to your heart. This feeling of quiet and peace found within will attune you to the right intentions, thoughts, feelings and actions.

There is always a pivotal point in manifestation — at this point, we begin to ask. “What does the Universe want me to do and what can I do for others?” We begin to look at our lives to see what we can change about our selves, instead of changing others; to see our selves as creators, rather than victims. Our hearts speak to us, opening to the creative message of the Divine.

Deepening Meditation for Manifestation

Technique for Practice

Choose a quiet place for meditation. Try to meditate during the first hour after awakening. Begin with a color — blue or pink seem to be the easiest in the beginning. Focus on the color until you feel, see and have a sense of the color.

Focus on positive feelings….the feeling of accomplishing a goal, the feelings that were present on the best days of your life, or the physical sensations of a beautiful day. Now imagine having achieved your heart’s desire. See it in its final state of completion.

Feel the joy and happiness that you would experience upon completion of the desire. See your self smiling and laughing in the picture. Now let the picture fade away, replacing the image with white light that shines on you and through your body and field.

End the meditation with a reminder that each time you focus that you are moving a step closer to your heart’s desire. YOU ARE DESERVING AND WORTHY OF A WONDERFUL LIFE!

Blue Super Moon!

Blue Moon, Blood Moon, Super Moon, and Eclipse appears on Wednesday, January 31, and it has many names and energies. The lunar eclipse will take place at 9:07 am, and we’ll feel the energy for several weeks. (A lunar eclipse is essentially a reset, a motion into darkness, followed by light.(The eclipse may also stir up patterns and/or longings from last summer’s solar eclipse.) All full moons carry the energetic blueprint of fruition, germination, and realization of dreams. A Blue Moon is simply 2 full moons in one month, and a super moon is closer to the earth than usual. At any rate, it’s all powerful!

There is definitely a magical, beneficial energy associated with the moon. Think of extra light permeating through the darkness, bringing additional illumination. That’s part of what this moon can do, and it’s definitely important to believe in our power to make dreams come true.

The Blue Moon Chart presents both challenges and benevolent energy. Moon (inner self, emotions) trines Mars (male, assertion), which harmonizes feelings and actions. Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion), energizing our hopes and dreams in a positive sense. Saturn (karma) and Uranus (new age) are trine, increasing our ability to combine the old and new (worlds).

The Blue Moon conveys an equation of rewriting the past, letting go of unwanted aspects of life, and putting the two together in a new form. (Of course, the new form is “life”.) The major aspects of the chart fall in fixed signs, indicating the aspects of the self that are strongly anchored in belief, habit, and feeling. (In general, fixed signs have difficulty altering their point of view.)

Here are the major points of interest:

  1. Much of the chart revolves around fixed signs of Aquarius, Leo, and Scorpio. Sun (outer self), Moon (inner self, emotions), Venus (love, material goods), and Jupiter (good fortune). (Fixed signs tend not to express flexibility or openness to change. They do convey both loyalty and patience.) However, this chart is about finding flexibility and openness with parts of the self, others, and the world.
  2. Sun (outer life) and Venus (love, material goods) in Aquarius are conjunct, heightening our interest in the New Age, which opens the mind and spirit to both new techniques and possibilities. However, Moon (emotions) is placed in the fire sign of Leo.
  3. Moon (emotion) opposes (is opposite) Venus (feminine, love). Our emotions will run “hot”, but Venus in Aquarius is detached. The issue brings up the importance of feeling emotion, but expressing them in a way that brings communion and connection (Venus in Aquarius). It’s quite an equation.
  4. Moon trines (harmonious) Mars (action, male) in Sagittarius, a fire sign. Previously, Mars in Scorpio felt emotional and steamy, but Mars in Sagittarius moves life along at a faster pace. The trine will help in taking action to create and realize goals.
  5. Sun, Moon, and Venus square Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter (expansion) in Scorpio is all about passion and achieving the heart’s desires. Squares can cause tension or feelings of frustration. In this case, the assignment is to discover how we block our desires through how we live our life (Sun), the expression of our emotions (Moon), and how we love and/or define love (Venus).
  6. Mercury (communications) squares Uranus (higher mind, quantum field), so our intuition will not be completely clear. Likely, we’ll receive hints about changing lives or strong feelings about the future. But we won’t get a clear read.
  7.  Obviously, it’s not a crystal clear chart. Many aspects hint at how to merge parts of the outer self for greater connection and unity. But there’s also a mystery, a feeling of where to go–without clear directions. In spiritual work, this is considered “good” because it causes us to look within for answers that are not evident in the outer world.

Simple Tips for Changing Your Life

 

Begin with a strong feeling of fortitude. You can do this. Now, create an image of living in the desired reality. Do something in the reality. Listen to song, dance around the room, enjoy your new “person”, plan a trip, or count your money. Smile and focus on a joyous feeling after completing the meditation. Everything is working for you.

Meditate for a few minutes every day. Connect with the universe and connect with your heart. Make sure your vision is leading you in the right direction. If so, take connection deeper.

Take one small action every day—preferably around 5-10 minutes for the first week. You can add time during the following week. Presumably, you’re working in a specific direction, so choose a task that will lead you to change. (Maybe, it’s staying calmer when your work needs a lot of focus or energy. It could revolve around exercise and diet. In this case, add a healthy meal or snack and add 10 minutes of exercise.) Compliment yourself for making the effort. (You rock, right?)

Patterns of old behavior and avoidance will always surface, particularly when you’re changing your life through spiritual work. It’s how you rewrite the energy of the ego that loves the old patterns and comfort zone. To change your feelings, you must rewrite your thoughts and emotions. (Thoughts and feelings can come from other people, past lives, or childhood. Often, they are not real. Observe, wait, and consider rewriting your feelings. How would you feel if you didn’t react or changed your behavior? Often, the answer is “free”.)

It’s very helpful to remember the most important reason for the work lies in seeking awakening—the lovely feeling of connection with the universe, the rush of intuition, and the alignment of the soul with the physical world. Yes, you can create a whole, new reality, but you also create a better connection with who you truly are—the most beautiful and light qualities of yourself.

Simple, Difficult Lessons

 

 

The biggest lessons often involve daily life. They are about becoming conscious during repetitious and emotional activities. The lessons also have to do with our perception of light–and the world. (They also teach us how to blend the current self and the higher self in many aspects of life.)

If you’re encountering these lessons and feelings, it simply means you are awakening and moving into a higher level of self-development. Observe often and love yourself for your courage and fortitude!

  1. Moving more deeply into trust. Trust that the universe is taking care of you. Your higher self can always find the path and lead you into a place of peace, safety, and comfort. (When life is difficult, move into the inner self. Listen to your intuition. Make an active effort based on your inner voice, heart, or another feeling.)
  2. Your light is growing. You feel more of it when you meditate, and you find your light when you’re upset. Some days, everything falls into place. You find easier to understand other people’s point of view—even when you don’t agree. You know everything is changing for the better despite how the world might appear. (It takes time for spiritual creations to move into form.)
  3. Invisible connections. When you meditate, you feel others who are doing the same. Periodically, you sense the light of many other people in the world. Love and light flow through you. You think about a small problem, and someone (or something) provides the answer.
  4. Soul Contracts. People are moving in and out of your life. A soul contract is an agreement to meet a specific person during this lifetime. It includes children, spouses, parents, friends, and enemies. There is always a strong pull. Generally, it’s about resolving issues, growing into greater love, offering support, and working through emotions (both good and bad). It’s an almost inexplicable attraction/repulsion between individuals. (In soul contracts, one person may grow, and the other doesn’t move into love. Growth can also come from negative people, which results in creating boundaries. You may also move into greater love and strength. Regardless, there is always a feeling of “fate”.
  5. Accept the alternating energies. Nothing moves or happens as it did in the past. The sun and moon are often on a different course. Patterns of nature and the weather are changing. Overall, the changes can aid with spiritual growth because you cannot repeat the same actions at the same time every day. But you can hold fast to your practices. You can send light to others and the world. (Sleeping and eating patterns are changing. Listen within for guidance.)
  6. Listen with your heart. Softer emotions are replacing anger, fear, and judgement. You’re learning to pause before speaking. You’re beginning to realize how life moves in a different rhythm when you listen and respond. You experience an uplifting sensation of happiness when acting on your inner instruction.
  7. Sense the invisible world. You have moments of knowing. Beneath the appearance of the physical world, energy moves. It’s invisible and powerful. It speaks through intuition, and you’re tapping into it. You realize that person didn’t mean what they said, or the news is diverting your attention. You open the window and feel nature calling to you. You suddenly know who will call you or how the day will move. You know how to find a higher vibration (some of the time) and shift the circumstances that are flowing around you.

Embracing Light

 

When we focus on light, the universe sends more light. When we contemplate light, we begin to understand how it works and lends support. When we desire awakening, the universe leads us into many experiences in the invisible world such as synchronicities, esoteric teachings, and subtle answers, which provide direction in life.

Universal direction comes when we take time to connect with our soul. It may come from meditation, nature, animals, personal love, or creativity. If we recognize the “expansion”, we can create a great deal from this place—particularly with visualization.

Life responds to our visualizations, placement of consciousness, and attention. When we give attention to negative states or unwanted aspects of life, they expand. Conversely, positive thoughts and visualizations raise our vibration, creating the opposite. (It’s helpful to think of difficult areas of life as energy and to send light to them.)

By observing our personal patterns, we can alter them by changing the inner dialog (what we say to ourselves), focusing on a positive outcome or different response, and asking the universe for help. By asking the universe for help, we essentially ask for light and new perceptions of our problems. If we are open, small answers appear and coalesce.

Here are a few tips:

  1. When the focus is on awakening, we turn to the infinite source of energy, the universe. When we are connected to the inner self, we have more energy and enthusiasm about life. Essentially, we experience a rebirth through inner connection.
  2. It’s good to review our positive changes by noticing greater awareness, sensitivity, and intuitive changes.  We experience more of the object of our attention. (Life responds to attention and focus.)
  3. It’s helpful not to think we don’t want “something” in our lives. It’s better to visualize a positive change and act on it. It’s also positive to think of difficult areas in life as energy. We simply work to change and alter the energy.  (Energy can be changed through color, sound, or visualization. Our energy moves into a higher vibration when we use these techniques.)
  4. By noticing happiness, positive feelings, and goodness, we create more of them. When we focus on the good in life, we encounter more of it. (Experiment:  While waiting in line, focus on one good thing about a stranger and see how they respond. It may take one or two tries, but you’ll receive a positive response.)
  5. Make positive wishes and visualize often. When we see results clearly in our mind, we create them. Believe in the power of the inner self, which always perceives the beautiful, amazing side of life.

Full Moon Forecast

 

Full moons bring intensity, passion, and fruition to dreams. Everything heightens before waning and moving into a new cycle. The full moon appears on October 5,  featuring Sun (life) and Mercury (thought, communication) in Libra, an air sign ruled by Venus.  Libra rules beauty, balance, relationships, judgement, and the mind. Think of butterflies, dragonflies, and soft clouds—or the stillness of the mind that comes with inner presence. Think of a gentle breeze moving through bright leaves and the clear, peaceful feeling of an autumn afternoon.

Libra also rules the type of higher love that comes from the enlightened mind and an open heart. When Sun (life) and Mercury (thought) are conjunct (close), it heightens our ability to still the mind and receive higher communications and impulses. It also increases our ability to perceive beauty, harmony, and balance. (It’s important to align our consciousness with these energies as we move through the week.)

Moon in Aries stirs the pot, dredging up passion, impulses, and the desire for a new quest. The moon opposes the energies of the Sun and Mercury, so the best use of these energies is feeling passionate about the spaciousness of the mind when it is connected to the Divine.

The biggest challenge in the chart lies with the T-square with Sun (life), Moon (emotions), Mercury (thought), and Pluto. It pertains to how we experience and react to our own darkness and the underworld. Pluto reveals the truth about life, and it’s often not pretty. But part of seeing the truth and light involves recognizing the aspects of life (and the planet) that don’t work.

Pluto direct can feel like the river Styx. Fortunately, there is light at the end of the long river. When we see the truth and act properly on it, we become powerful. This is Pluto’s lesson.

A T-square can cause tension and irritability. In this case, Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (thought) square Pluto, creating tension between our desire to create harmony and the aspects of life that appear before us. (Obviously, it happened this week.) Moon square Pluto (subconscious, transformation) arouses rapid, actions and emotions, which can occur with little thought. (Venus and Mars in  trine Pluto, which may help us in finding practical methods of transmuting energies through love and light.)

The challenge involves our encounter with aspects of the personal subconscious and global consciousness. The challenge is to remain aligned with a clear mind while focusing on a positive world view. (Of course, we will feel discordant emotions, but we can try to rise above them.)  It’s important to focus on the beautiful feelings and vision bestowed by Sun and Mercury in Libra. We have to quiet the mind and return to a higher vision, which is a form of cosmic awakening.

Additional Influential Aspects

Venus (feminine, beauty, physical possessions) and Mars (male, action) are placed in Virgo, the sign of order, healing, and physical work. In conjunct (close) position, there is a pleasant coherence between the male/female aspects of the self. This includes work/rest and active/passive phases of life, which can create a lovely balance.

Work and Spirituality

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (assertion, male) square Saturn in Sagittarius (karma, time, devotion and spirituality.) The square creates tension between our desire to work and our devotion to spiritual work. It’s helpful to take breaks for peaceful meditation between efforts with focused work. (It’s important not to compartmentalize, but to find balance while holding the open state of mind conferred by Sun in beautiful Libra.)

Balance and Change

Jupiter (good fortune, expansion) in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries (sudden change, awakening). Our desire for harmony and clarity (Jupiter) conflicts with Uranus’ energies. Uranus elicits strong reactions, moving energy quickly from high to low (like a roller coaster), brings change, and causes odd events.

With oppositions, we tend to feel both energies in separate intervals. We may want balance, contentment and harmony, which is followed by a desire for sudden change. These energies can feel disruptive, but it is possible to alter the placement of our consciousness into a peaceful place by an act of will. Jupiter also trines (harmonious) Saturn (karma, time), which is helpful in creating a positive blend of the old and new.

Dreams and Illusion

Venus (feminine, beauty) and Mars (male, action) oppose Neptune, the bringer of dreams, illusion, and mysticism. Venus and Mars in Virgo ask us to focus on the tasks at hand and fulfill practical matters. Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces encourages dreams and a mystical state of being. While traveling between these two planetary energies, it’s possible to lose sight of larger dreams and aspirations when focused on practicality and/or confuse reality and illusion. Sun, Moon, and Mercury are sextile Neptune, which brings a more positive energy to the mix; their position can help in finding clarity with this task.

Sabian Symbols, based on Lynda Hill’s Work

Sun sits on Libra 13, “Children Blowing Soap Bubbles”. The symbol illustrates the beauty of air, the possibility of floating through life by becoming present and aware in the moment. Libra is an air sign, and it rules thoughts. When the mind is clear, “air” supports us with a lovely motion, carrying our thoughts to the heavens to take on shape and form.

Moon is placed on Aries 13, “A Bomb Which Failed to Explode Is Now Safely Hidden from Discovery.” This symbol has appeared often in the past few months. (It’s interesting to note how a WWII bomb was discovered and defused in Germany during this period.) It could refer to Pluto’s current (direct) position and the need to handle personal issues, which are potentially explosive. The symbol can refer to global issues as well. For the moment, we have time to review, change the past, and create a safer future (without potential harm).

Mercury is on Libra 11, “A Professor Peering over His Glasses at His Students.” Again, it’s a repetitive symbol. The best teachers share information on an intuitive, intellectual, and emotional level. Glasses can refer to not seeing well or seeing details more sharply.

We learn from the nature and the response of the physical world. Clear perception is necessary to read the signs. The symbol also refers to the need for teachers to study and grow on an intellectual and metaphysical level while teaching others.

Venus and Mars on Virgo 20, “A Caravan of Cars Headed for the Promised Lands”. Mars and Venus refer to male and female energy, and they give harmony when placed on the same degree in the same sign. The symbol is apropos for this time of higher vibration and the awakened movement, particularly as we move through life in our cars.

The symbol hints at a new and better way of living and new methods of experiencing life. Likely, it is one of higher consciousness. They work best!

Jupiter sits on Libra 30, “Three Mounds of Knowledge on a Philosopher’s Head. This is the last degree of Jupiter and marks the end of learning lessons from Libra. The symbol refers to phrenology, the study of the bumps and shapes of the head. It also refers to the interpretation of signs. We know the look of inner beauty when reflected in the face and body. We know the feeling of the flow and how life changes when we step into it. When the wind blows from a different direction, it tells about the weather.

If we pay attention to small signs and physical indications of the spiritual presence in the physical, we can learn about our responses to the inner world. By recognizing and acting on inner impulses, we gain greater access to the spiritual world.

Choosing a Higher Frequency

 

Part of spiritual work involves shifting our energy from lower to higher frequencies. It’s normal to feel oscillation, the swing between a higher and lower state when participating in spiritual work. We also react to other people’s vibrations, the perception of problems, and mass consciousness. In other words, specific aspects of life cause our frequency to descend.

Typically, we experience lower emotions in these circumstances. But there is always a way to ascend above an issue.

1) Raising our vibrations through meditation and devotion to practice always helps because this renews and strengthens our connection to the “light.” It raises our consciousness into a more awakened state.

2) Our vision and visualizations of life profoundly affect our experience of “real” life. Our vision of life is based on our perceptions and beliefs; it widens as we move into universal truth. Everyone creates visualizations of life, which are accompanied by emotions. (Ironically, we tend to amplify and review unhappy events more than positive ones. It requires changing our habits to see life in a different way.)

3) We also use projection and visualization in the outer world. For example, reflecting on pollution in the physical world is realistic, but if we create images in our mind, experience feelings of upset, and focus on it, we create more of the same. We can acknowledge a state as “truth” and follow it with a visualization, which creates resolution—or at least a higher vibration. For example, we could see a clean earth and ocean while imagining a beautiful planet.

4) Higher vibration is often the frequency needed for problem solving. Problems and patterns tend to exist on a lower frequency; solutions come on a higher vibration. (Healthy boundaries also come from the higher self.) Reaching this state of being can come from recalling positive memories, creating experiences, which bring happiness, and moving more deeply into connection. (Obviously, believing in a positive outcome is part of the work.)

5) Focusing on the heart space and the vibration of love can help a great deal with any situation because it teaches the art of placing the consciousness in one of the infinite qualities of the universe. (Pink light can be used for the sensation of love.)
