What is this vibration thing?
My first exposure to vibrations and the importance of raising your vibration came when I began with my study of the Law of Attraction. Initially, this vibration stuff seemed so woo-hoo really wanted to dismiss the whole idea of a spiritual vibration.
Then I watched a YouTube video that took the woo-hoo-er-y out of it for me by tying the concept of vibration to a heartbeat, the blood pumping through your veins, the food digesting in our stomachs.
I would like you to consider that we live in a vibrational universe; you are a vibrational being, whose cells and organs all pulsate at a particular frequency. Our brain pulsates with electromagnetic energy, affected by our emotions, our health, and our general state of well-being. Our body contracts and pulses at various rates, including your heartbeat, your stomach contracting and the very act of breathing. Together, they make up you, a composite of frequencies, and so we each vibrate to our own personal tune.
After hearing Joanna McEwen explaining a Vibrational Universe in her TEDx talk, the hokeyness dissipated for me. If you are in any way a skeptic, hopefully this explanation resonates with you as well.
Once I heard that I vibrate to my “own personal tune,” I knew that I wanted to learn more.
How do you have a high vibration?
Now that we have discussed the physical attributes of this vibration thing, what about the high vibrational energy or the spiritual vibration?
If you have ever heard the saying “good vibes” or “bad vibes,” then you know exactly what a spiritual vibration is.
A spiritual vibration is all about feelings and emotions.
Are you an upbeat, glass is the half-full type of person? If so, you have a high vibration, and you can navigate life’s problems easily.
Are you a Debby downer? The type of person that has the knack of finding the negative in any situation? If so, you have a low vibration, and life’s problems easily overwhelm you.
Like life, having a high vibration or a low vibration is not a constant. Life is full of highs and lows. In this post, we will cover how to lift your spirits during the low points. We will cover in detail all kinds of easy things that will teach you how to raise your vibration when you are depressed or angry.
This post will provide you with hope when you need hope the most.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration. – Nikola Tesla
How does your vibration work with the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction is simple: You become what you believe
Yep, it goes back to that timeless childhood story of The Little Engine That Could and the power of the words “I think I can!” The Law of Attraction is that principle that states if you believe something can happen, it will happen. If you do not believe something is possible, it is not possible.
It is that uplifting feeling in your gut. It is faith!
Since the Law of Attraction is you become what you believe, then being uplifting with a high vibration is critical for good things to come your way. To expand on that thought a bit, if your vibration is low and negative, good things will not present themselves to you.
What does raise your vibration mean?
My idea of having a high vibration is simple: being in a freaking good mood with an excitement for life. You have a clear vision of where you want to be in life and the energy to get you to that destination.
Your goal is to remain positive when faced with adversity, you are attracted to uplifting people and uplifting people are attracted to you, and life is full of hope.
When you raise your vibration or frequency, you:
- Tune into the energetic you who has clarity, passion for life, and hopes and dreams.
- Tap into the inner you who is willing to take a chance to turn your dreams into your reality.
- Will feel a shift in your thoughts, feelings, and even your physical self.
- Feel alive!
51 easy things to do to raise your vibration to attract the life you want?
How can I increase my vibration instantly? Great question! We are going to cover the best ways to raise your vibration and raise your vibration fast! The action items below address your mind, body, and spirit to raise your vibration.
1. Smile and Laugh Out Loud
Here at I Love Your Laugh, we believe in the healing power of laughter. We know that during the darkest times, the biggest disagreements, the gloomiest days, a laugh makes all of the negative falls to the wayside.
Tell a joke, seek a joke, watch a funny movie or show. Whatever it takes to crack a smile, you just gotta do it!
2. Choose Your Words Carefully
Talk to yourself with love. Self-talk is so important. If you tell yourself you can do something, then you can. If you tell yourself, you can’t do something, and then you can’t do it.
Be observant of how you talk to yourself. Self-deprecating humor is not funny. It isn’t funny to you, and it isn’t funny to those around you.
Don’t be that person that puts an awkward vibe out in the air by bashing yourself. Be nice to you! You deserve it!
3. Express Gratitude
Gratitude heals everything. When expressing gratitude, it a warm and fuzzy feeling consumes us, and any anger or frustration naturally goes away.
When you are in a low vibe state, start focusing on all the wonders the Universe has afforded you. Think of the ones you love the most and all the wonder that you have added to their lives and the magnificence they have added to yours.
Center yourself around gratitude:

4. Let Go of Grudges
Grudges eat the soul. A grudge holds you in the past, and in turn, you miss out on today. Do not let a useless grudge rob you of one more day.
Let go. Letting go of the past is the only way that you will be able to change your future.
5. Inhale Deeply and Exhale
Breathe. Take in the oxygen with all you have and release it slowly. Breathing deeply is the best way to handle stress, formulate a game plan, and move forward.
Don’t forget to do it.
Come up with a way that reminds you to take a breather before you do something that you shouldn’t. A good breathing exercise will chase away.
In Brené Brown’s Book – Dare to Lead, she teaches a technique called box breathing:
- Inhale deeply through your nose, expanding your stomach, for a count of four.
- Hold in that breath for a count of four.
- Slowly exhale all the air through your mouth, contracting your stomach, for a count of four.
- Hold the empty breath for a count of four.
We don’t pause enough and check our body. I’m a breath holder, and sometimes, when things get really hectic and I’m in firefighting mode at the office, I just stop and trace a square on my desk: In for four, hold for four, out for four, hold for four. I swear just two or three of these breathing sessions rewires me. – Brené Brown
Find Brené Brown on Amazon – She has some great tips and tricks to increase your vibration (especially in the workplace!)
6. Use Music to Raise Your Vibration
Turn up the tunes and jam out for a bit. Music is the key to the soul. An uplifting song can raise your vibration just as a sad, sad song can lower your vibration.
Lift your mood with the right tune and put yourself in the right vibration for the Universe to deliver.
In an independent study from New Zealand from Meera Raghu, A Study to Explore the Effects of Sound Vibrations on Consciousness, the following emotions were found to be derived from music.
|Interval or Interval Type||Associated Emotions|
|Consonant intervals||Pleasantness, generally positive emotional valence; not as strong or active as dissonant intervals|
|Dissonant intervals||Generally negative emotional valence, strength, activity|
|Major intervals||Brightness, strength|
|Minor intervals||Dullness, weakness|
|Minor second||Melancholy, displeasure, anguish, darkness|
|Major second||Pleasurable longing, displeasure (neutral as a passing tone;)|
|Minor third||Tragedy, sadness|
|Major third||Joy, happiness, brightness|
|Perfect fourth||Buoyancy, pathos|
|Tritone (diabolus in musica)||Violence, danger, tension, devilishness|
|Perfect fifth||Cheerfulness, stability|
|Minor sixth||Anguish, sadness|
|Major sixth||Winsomeness, pleasurable longing (neutral as a passing tone)|
|Dominant seventh||Irresolution, displeasure, mournfulness|
|Major seventh||Aspiration, displeasure, violent longing|
|Octave||Lightheartedness (i.e., sudden melodic leap)|
7. Drink Plenty of Water and Eat Healthy Raw Foods
Yep, we’re are getting food and water out of the way.
Pay attention to your body. Consume foods and beverages that make your body feel fantastic. A fantastic body is a healthy mind, spirit, and vibration.
Drinking water seems like an obvious one as water is essential for life, but sometimes we must state the obvious. (I always struggle with drinking water!)
Increasing your water intake is the most natural way to increase your vibration.
A well-hydrated body is a happy body.
8. Release the Stories You Tell Yourself
We can all get caught up in the past. Now is the time to let go. It is time to heal your past limiting beliefs and celebrate in the wonders of the universe.
Be observant of your convictions and ask yourself what the source truly is.
When that well-known debilitating panic attack starts to consume you, ask yourself why? Are the feelings and emotions that are overcoming you a result of your beliefs or the beliefs passed on to you from your childhood.
Identify the source, accept it, and then chill out.
You cannot change the past. You can only make sure that your past does not steal your future.
9. Be Kind
Be kind to yourself and others. Extend random acts of kindness. Reach out to organizations and groups and see how you can add a smile to someone’s day.
Doing good for others provides us with energy that we need to push forward and be the best versions of ourselves.
As we help others, others will naturally help us.
In the famous words of Taylor Swift – – – Shake it off!
[Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. I had to go there.]
Shaking your booty is a perfect way to improve your mood and raise your vibration. It is also a fantastic way to elevate the mood for everyone in the room.
So take a moment and shake your booty and allow the music to touch your soul.
11. Turn Off the Television
The television can serve as a never-ending flow of negative energy. From the news to the high-drama reality shows, trying to find something enriching can be challenging.
If that is what you are running into, turn it off, and walk away.
Remember the television is a tricky household device. It is a mind-numbing electronic that can draw you in and make you lose hours of your life.
12. Journey into Nature
Nature is the perfect place to let the chaos of the day-to-day go. Take a day and get away from it all and breathe in the fresh air, walk in a stream, or just sit on a picnic bench a ponder.
Take some time for you.
13. Surround Yourself with Positive People
“You’re the average of the five people spend the most time with” is some pretty sound advice often attributed to the motivational speaker Jim Rohn. The thing is, science has proven this to be grossly understated.
From 1983 to 2003, 4,739 participants were reviewed to see if happiness is contagious. The conclusion was a resounding yes. The study showed that happiness flows throughout three degrees of separation:
Emotional states can be transferred directly from one individual to another by mimicry and “emotional contagion,” perhaps by the copying of emotionally relevant bodily actions, particularly facial expressions, seen in others. People can “catch” emotional states they observe in others over time frames ranging from seconds to weeks. – Dynamic spread of happiness in a large social network: longitudinal analysis over 20 years in the Framingham Heart Study
So surround yourself with high-vibe people and increase your vibration and theirs!
14. Focus on Healing
Accepting that our past impacts, our present is a bit intimidating.
As a woman in my 40s, I totally thought I had overcome my childhood fears and challenges. Then I went through a life-changing experience where I met my biological parents for the first time in 2017.
The experience of meeting strangers that physically resembled me was an experience that life just could not prepare me.
The sorrow I found was devastating. Two people that lived extremely rough lives following giving up their baby that was a result of teenage pregnancy.
This process was full of tons of soul searching, which woke me up to the realization that the survival skills I learned as a child growing up in a home impacted by substance abuse carried into my adult life.
Be open to experiences that will allow you to heal. To finally let go of the past and allow you to live in the present.
15. Create Something Cool
Tap into your creative side! Do you love to paint, draw, write, cook, garden, etc? Get out and do it! Your God-given talents are the tools in your high-vibration toolbox.
Create something with your hands, your mind, your voice that elevates your spirits and increases your vibe and all those who come in contact with your creation.
16. Find Beauty
Beauty is everywhere!
Open your eyes and open your heart and take it all in. Cherish the little things.
- A smile on your puppy’s face
- The smell of rain in the air
- Your child saying good morning or goodnight
- When your partners says, “I Love You!”
- The “Thank You” that you receive when you hold the door open for a stranger
17. Aim High
Accept that you deserve all that you desire. You just have to go out and get it!
Stop wasting energy on all the reasons that you cannot do something and start knowing that you can do it! There is nothing about you that limits what you can accomplish in this life except for your own thoughts.
Think BIG! Aim high and go for it! Life passes by so fast you do not want to waste another second being a Debby-downer.
As Nike Says – – – Just Do It!
18. Help a Stranger
A simple act of kindness goes far. Helping people helps raise your vibration and theirs. It is the ripple effect of an increased vibration that goes on and on and on.
Take a moment of your day and give the unexpected to someone you do not know. You will be surprised by the rush of good-vibes that will come out of this experience.
It is the sure way to give the gift that keeps giving!
19. Take a Bath
Break out the Epson salt and soak up the healing powers.
According to healthline.com, Epson salts are a home treatment for:
- Red and itchy skin
- Sore muscles
- Swollen feet
- Aching arthritis
When your body is in pain, you will naturally emit a low vibration. Take care of yourself and chase any aches and pains away.
20. Cuddle Your Pet
Cuddling is such an act of healing. Grab your furry friend and squeeze!
[I know that hugging our furbaby Kunu makes me feel like a million dollars, although he is not always such a fan!]
In a research study performed by the Heart Math Institute, the connection that we feel with our pet surpasses a simple emotion. The bond that we have with our pets can actually shift the rhythm of the heart to meet our emotions.
Figure 6.11Heart-rhythm patterns of a boy and his dog. These data were obtained using ambulatory ECG recorders fitted on both Josh, a young boy and Mabel, his pet dog. When Josh entered the room where Mabel was waiting and consciously felt feelings of love and care towards his pet, his heart rhythms became more coherent and this change appears to have influenced Mabel heart rhythms, which shifted to a more coherent rhythm.
21. Enjoy the Moment
Let go of the past. Stop worrying about the future. Enjoy the moment. Right now is all you have! Make the most of it.
Don’t let your past hold you back by consuming your thoughts and controlling your actions. Release your stress and surrender.
Inhale. Exhale. Smile!
22. Read Inspirational Quotes
Here at I Love Your Laugh, we love inspirational quotes! They are just such a great way to lift spirits and keeps words of wisdom close. Be sure to check out our wonderful quote collection section of our site! Rob and I are always on the lookout for a great quote to lift our spirits and yours!
Surround yourself with all things beautiful!
23. Consume Elevating Content
Mindless and meaningless information is everywhere. From social media to the news, it is easy to consume garbage daily.
Be aware. Be engaged. Be observant of what you are consuming. Do not waste another moment on autopilot, just allowing life to pass you up.
We are designed to learn. So learn. Challenge the mind and your body to do more, to be more. Your vibration is naturally higher when you are expanding your mind.
24. Practice Yoga
Yoga helps heal the mind, the body, and the soul. Yoga is a perfect way to keep your body flowing freely and raises your energy to a blissful state.
So roll out your mat. Inhale deeply and get in touch with your body.
Yoga is a sure-fire way to start your day off right or end your day on a positive note.
25. Write Out Your Dreams
Take a moment and write out your dreams. Take a pen to paper and lay it all out.
Where do you want to be…
- Six Months from Now?
- A Year from Now?
- Five years?
These are your dreams. Let them flow. You don’t have to worry about sharing them with others. Your only goal is to be specific. Visualize where you are heading. Get excited! Allow yourself to know that you can do it!
26. Create a Vision Board
Ready to design your life? Creating a vision board is a great way to keep your eye on the prize. A vision board, or dream board, is a valuable visualization tool that keeps your dreams in the forefront of your mind.
So what is a vision board? It is simply a collage of words and pictures that visually and emotionally represent where you want to be in life.
27. Do Not Gossip
Gossip destroys! It is one of the actions that in the moment it appears as if the gossiper has the upper hand. But stand back and be an observer of the gossiper, and you will see how the negativity flowing from the individual is tearing them down.
When you gossip you sacrifice part of yourself. Part of your good energy. Stop the gossiping and raise your vibration!
28. Sober Up and Stop the Smoking
Rob and I smoke off and on for over 25 years. If smoking is something that you struggle with, maybe now is the time to stop.
Once you remove the toxins of smoking and alcohol from your life, you suddenly realize how bright the world is. Walks are invigorating, and breaks from work are relaxing.
If you have a bad habit holding you back, now is a great time to evaluate and take control to raise your vibe!
Here are some articles that will help you break your bad habits and enjoy life to the fullest:
29. Limit Your Interaction with Negative People
As learned in the Dynamic spread of happiness in a large social network: longitudinal analysis over 20 years in the Framingham Heart Study mentioned above:
People’s happiness depends on the happiness of others with whom they are connected. This provides further justification for seeing happiness, like health, as a collective phenomenon.
So see out positive people. Cut ties with the Debby Downers in your life and focus and see the glass as half-full.
30. Watch Inspirational Content
Fill your mind with information that lifts your spirits.
I love YouTube for this. There are so many magnificent people out there, just like you and me, who are sharing their stories and the stories of other successful people.
To heck with mainstream television…try out YouTube and find like-minded people that fill your soul with beauty!
31. Adopt Positive Affirmations
Get ready and embrace some positive affirmations that lift your spirits. Positive affirmations are a great way to self-talk your way to the required energy to move forward with your high vibe self.
The words you speak have power and directly lift or lower your vibration. Select uplifting words and revisit them daily!
All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind. – Kahlil Gibran (from “Sand and Foam”)
32. Steer Clear of Social Media
When needing a quick boost to your spiritual vibration, be sure to take a break from social media. Social media can be a place of unexpected and raw emotion.
With it being such a filterless environment, it can be a place of vulnerability when you are in a low-vibe.
Control your environment and be observant of the content you consume. Don’t let Debbie Downer bring you down.
33. Love Yourself
Loving yourself is simple, yet oh so complicated. Self-doubt and fear are feelings that we all deal with, and chasing away those thoughts can be a struggle.
When there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do you no harm. – African Proverb
The best thing that you can do to love you the most is to accept the fact that you are not special. That even the person you view as being the most confident person struggles with self-doubt.
(Unless they are a narcissistic sociopath or something of the like!)
Once you are aware that we all struggle, we all worry, you will learn to forgive yourself for not being perfect. Perfection is impossible!
34. Take a Nap
Taking care of yourself is the best way to obtain or maintain a high vibration. Sometimes we need to take some time for ourselves and what a better way to do it then a nap.
We live in a go, go, go world that it is hard to remember that we need to rest.
35. Go for a Walk
Get out of the house or office and get your blood pumping. A walk is a great way to get your day in focus, let go of stress, and increase your vibration!
36. Tidy Up and Declutter Your World
Say goodbye to clutter and clean some stuff up. A clean living space equals a clean and clutter-free mind.
Purge out the old, low-vibe crap you’ve got laying around the house and enjoy the fresh new space for your mind, body, and soul.
Find your zen!

37. Listen to an Audiobook That Makes You Feel Good
My favorite books that raise my vibration are two books by Jen Sincero. The author’s humor and my humor are in sync.
I love to listen to Jen’s Books at 1.5 speed!
Meditation is one of those things that I struggle with but have high hopes that I will once day figure it out.
[The whole quieting my mind really kicks my butt]
There have been moments that I have met that bliss state head-on in my attempts to meditate, but so far, it is kind of hit and miss.
When it is a hit, it is magnificent.
Time flys! Don’t sit on the sidelines. If the mood hits, then you better act! When you get that feeling in your gut that you need to do something, you better do it.
A few weeks back I received a phone call from a hospital from my hometown. It was a nurse call to let me know that my dad had a mini-heart attack, and they were sending him to Phoenix for minor surgery.
Although I knew all I had to do was call Rob and he would get off work immediately to be with me, I opted to leave right away.
Within ten minutes of my sister and me getting to the hospital, they place my dad on a ventilator. He passed away two days later.
If I did not act immediately, I would not have been able to speak to my dad one last time.
If you feel like you need to do something – – – do it! No hesitation – jump!
40. Accept Responsibility
Remember, you are the only one that can control how you respond to a situation. Decide that you are not a victim of your surroundings. You are in control of you!
When you struggle with a coworker or a family member, remind yourself that they do not make you feel a particular way. You decide how you will feel and respond.
Accept responsibility for the things that you can change and let go of the rest!
41. Express Love to Those Around You
Don’t forget to show those around you how much you love them. Remember, it is your actions that show a person that you care about them.
Don’t let your words fall flat – – – actions speak louder than words!
Share your talents! You have knowledge and skills that you must share with others. When you teach others, your knowledge grows, and you add value to someone else’s life.
Do not hoard your skills. Share them.
43. Be Genuine
Being authentic is all the buzz these days. I just want to remind you to be yourself. You are beautiful just the way you are. Share your natural gifts with those around you, and all will prosper.
44. Be Intentional
Living on autopilot is the American way these days. But stay engaged! Time goes by so quickly you really do not want to live a life of regrets and what-ifs. When the urge to jump hits – – – JUMP!
New research shows the human heart is much more than an efficient pump that sustains life. Our research suggests the heart also is an access point to a source of wisdom and intelligence that we can call upon to live our lives with more balance, greater creativity, and enhanced intuitive capacities. All of these are important for increasing personal effectiveness, improving health and relationships, and achieving greater fulfillment. – Exploring the Role of the Heart in Human Performance
Take care of your heart. Nurture it with healthy food and heart strengthening exercise. Take care of your heart, and your heart will take care of you!
46. Seek Solutions
Problems arise. No matter how high your vibration is, or how much the Law of Attraction is on your side, life will happen. Problems will pop up – – – start focusing on the solution – – not the problem.
Your ability to adapt to life’s ups and downs will allow you to maintain your high-vibe. When you focus on the problem and not the solution, you will find your vibration flowing with the ups and downs.
Neutralize the problems by being a solution seeker!
47. Seek knowledge
Expand your mind. Continue to challenge yourself. Continue to learn new skills. Take your passion and go for it.
You will end up creating such a wonderful life you will draw other, like-minded individuals to you. Seek knowledge and find your tribe!
48. Never Give Up
Life is full of challenges! Rise to the occasion. Commit to yourself that once you formulate a plan, you have your dream list and vision board created, keep your eye on the prize.
Decide that you are going to live your best life and do it! Remember, the only way that you truly fail is when you quit.
49. Aim to Inspire
Aim to inspire is not the same as aim to impress.
When you aim to inspire, you develop an internal accountability process you focus on being the best version of yourself.
When you are acting as the best version of you, your vibration is high!
50. Allow Negative Emotions
Don’t fight yourself. Negativity is going to arise; don’t beat yourself up over it. Allow the feelings to flow through you and let then let go. The more you fight it, the longer the feelings will last. Acknowledge that you are struggling and allow it to work its course.
Know that it is easy to get upset with yourself when your primary focus is to live with a high vibration but know that it is just part of life. Highs and lows.
Your goal is simple. Live life with more highs than lows.
51. See a Reiki Master
Reiki comes from the Japanese word for universal, “rei,” and “ki,” or life energy. Reiki is simply a form of energy healing.
A post from Medical News Today refers to a study performed by the University of Minnesota whos patients describe their Reiki session:
- “I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.”
- “I think I fell asleep.”
- “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!”
- “I feel more relaxed than even after a massage.”
- “My headache is gone.”
Cancer patients who have Reiki say they feel better after. This may be because it helps them relax. Another reason, according to Cancer Research U.K. could be that the therapist spends time with them and touches them. This has a soothing effect on patients who may be overwhelmed by invasive therapy, fear, and stress.
Now is not the time to fear change. Embrace it. You are never too old to redesign your life to ensure that you get the most out of the time that you have on this wonderful planet.
Let your hair down, throw your hands in the air, and jump! You’ve got this!
