A Little Know Fact About Raising Your Vibration
I constantly find myself talking about the need for people to raise their vibration i.e. become more positive, uplifting, creative, and open. Changing your state of mind is always the first and most important step in the right direction. Our thoughts are our reality; positive thoughts will foster a positive reality. Connecting with the divine, going to church, prayer, and spiritual practice in general raise your vibration as well. Believe it or not, but certain foods and habits, such as smoking, will actually raise or lower your frequency. As if all this isn’t enough to worry about there is one more major factor: relationships.
I’m talking about every relationship you have in your life: family, friends, lovers, co-workers, children, parents, etc. You will attract people on the same or similar “wavelength”. If you’re a negative person trying to become more positive I can almost guarantee the people around you are vibrating on a low frequency as well. Now here comes the hard part: if a relationship doesn’t serve you, chances are you have to let it go.
For me, and I believe most people, letting go of someone you love and relate to is harder than changing your mind or making sure you say your prayers before bed every night. Now I’m not encouraging reckless abandon here, I’m just pointing out that holding onto a negative relationship is like trying to hold onto a necrotic limb. To really bludgeon you with the idea, allow me to ask you this: is it wise for a recovering addict to hang out with his dealer? Ifyour vibration is low and you have a few really close negative friends they are your dealers! It’s common sense, even on a purely logical level.
As you become more positive, all those negative people will begin to fall away. When you’re vibrating on a higher frequency, you will begin to attract relationships of purpose. Anything that isn’t serving you and supporting you will fade or the universe will just take it from you. It’s up to you to recognize what’s happening and not hold onto anyone, physically or emotionally, who doesn’t belong in your life. This won’t make you a bad person either. There needn’t be any guilt for removing negativity from your life, you can let go of someone and still love him or her; that’s what unconditional love is after all. A relationship should never hold you back from being your highest self.
I speak from personal experience, this happened to me at the beginning of my own journey. The hardest part of raising my vibration and embracing this gift was, and always will be, letting go. I had to let go of a lot of things and people who I loved so completely because they weren’t helping me work toward my highest good. It doesn’t mean I don’t still have love for all of them, it just means our lives are on two very different paths. I couldn’t have accomplished all that I have up to this point in the reality I had created with all of them. Hindsight is 20/20 they say. When this happens to you and you have years to dull the ache of loss, I promise you’ll realize the exquisite beauty of letting go.
