The 12 Spiritual Archetypes: Which Type Are You?

Published

spiritual archetypes image

According to Carl Jung, the pioneer of analytical psychoanalysis, the human psyche has archetypical ideas that existed before we were born. These are what form the foundation of personalities and human behavior. They influence our behavior, trigger emotions, and give us a sense of personal meaning. In this article, we will discuss the 12 spiritual archetypes that determine our spiritual development.

The 12 Spiritual Archetypes

The spiritual archetype refers to behavioral patterns that determine our emotional, psychological, and spiritual development. There are 12 spiritual archetypes:

  1. The Alchemist
  2. The Ascetic
  3. The Cenobite
  4. The Devotee
  5. The Disciple
  6. The Hermit
  7. The Mystic
  8. The Prophet
  9. The Rebel
  10. The Sage
  11. The Saint
  12. The Shaman

Let’s take a closer look at each of these spiritual archetypes.

#1: The Alchemist

Alchemist spiritual archetype image

The alchemist is the wizard. This archetype loves change and transformation. In turn, they look forward to the possibilities and changes that the future holds. Alchemists seek spiritual Unity, blessings, atonement, and alignment through the practice of rituals, spells, and ceremonies. Often, these rituals, spells, and ceremonies include the invocation of non-physical beings such as spirits and elemental forces through the careful arrangement, manipulation, or construction of physical objects. To an Alchemist, service, sacred rites of passage, and everyday acts of faith aid in strengthening their connection to the Divine.

Hence, if you possess the alchemist archetype:

  • your drive is in possibilities;
  • intuition is your greatest asset;
  • you are devotional and down-to-earth person who enjoys expressing his/her faith through sincere religious, cultural, or self-designed rituals;
  • you create an aura of mystique around yourself, exuding a sense of confidence and self-assurance;
  • you believe in magic and miracles;
  • you’re interested in astrology, spirituality, and mythology;
  • you feel that you’re capable of effecting great change in the world;
  • you can effect change in a quicker way than others, and in doing so can cause a sensation;
  • you often help others see the world or their problems from a different perspective;
  • you may get unwarranted criticism from those around you.

#2: The Ascetic

Ascetic image

Do you seek self-perfection, to the extent of forgoing material possessions? You could be the Ascetic archetype. The Ascetic is also known as the “Yogi” in Eastern spiritual tradition. This spiritual archetype is dedicated to experimenting with, mastering, and obtaining higher states of consciousness. Also, the Ascetic archetype pursues a spiritual journey characterized by the denial of bodily needs. The Ascetic’s spiritual practices almost always involve some degree of abstinence or rigorous training.

You are the Ascetic archetype if you:

  • are introspective, disciplined, strong-willed, rigorous, determined, devotional, and passionate;
  • hold yourself to incredibly high standards of self-perfection;
  • do not own or use magical or ritual tools for your spiritual practices;
  • wear simple, non-lavish clothing;
  • are particularly drawn to practices that induce alternate states of consciousness or higher states of consciousness such as energetic breathing techniques, types of meditation, mantras, yogic postures, sleep alteration, special diets (fasting, veganism, etc.), etc;
  • are self-disciplined;
  • choose abstinence, sobriety, or chasteness as pathways to experiencing Unity;
  • do not attempt to bypass your self-imposed restrictions.

#3: The Cenobite

Cenobite image

The Cenobite archetype values the sense of belonging to a spiritual family. This personality derives their human connection when in the company of like-minded people. In turn, the cenobite creates meet-ups and social communities with other persons that share their thoughts, objectives, and dreams. Due to their selfless nature, cenobites have unconditional love for others. Still, in the absence of boundaries, this love may turn into unhealthy co-dependency. Moreover, cenobites may also have the tendency to give in to mindless “groupthink” by allowing others to make their decisions. Conformity and the sacrificing of one’s needs and dreams may also result in communal situations.

You are the Cenobite archetype if you:

  • thrive the best when you’re leading, or part of, a soul tribe;
  • tend to be a part of spiritual meet-ups and spiritual communities;
  • love to be surrounded by like-minded spiritual people;
  • value solidarity in the form of brotherhood, sisterhood or the spiritual family as a way of experiencing the Divine;
  • deeply value human connection.

 #4: The Devotee

Devotee Image

Do you find yourself drawn to a spiritual journey characterized by devotion to a deity or spiritual figure? If so, your dominant personality is the Devotee spiritual archetype. See, the Devotee worships, commits to, and serves a God or Goddess, Buddha, Jesus, the Holy Mother, or any other divine power. More so, the Devotee prefers growing while under the guidance and support of an experienced spiritual teacher or mentor. Typical traits of a devotee include being receptive, passionate, trusting, open, determined, and humble.

You are the Devotee archetype if you:

  • are drawn towards the spiritual practices of worship, service, commitment, and heartfelt celebration of the Divine;
  • feel the most spiritually supported when you are guided by an experienced teacher, guide (whether physical or nonphysical), mentor or guru;
  • are drawn towards the spiritual practices of worship, service, commitment, and heartfelt celebration of the Divine;
  • are passionately devoted to the search of finding your True Nature through the process of self-emptying;
  • are devoted to listening and honoring the voice within.

 #5: The Disciple

Disciple Spiritual Archetype Image

Anyone with a dominant disciple spiritual archetype is a natural learner. Such persons thrive under the guidance of a spiritual leader by listening and learning from them. Usually, disciples are loyal and passionate supporters of a single teacher, ideal, creed, doctrine, or religious teaching. They find great support, confidence, security, and emotional closure in their chosen spiritual path.

You are the Disciple archetype if you:

  • are loyal, passionate, enthusiastic, supportive, receptive, devotional, curious, and honest;
  • feel the most fulfilled when you are learning, teaching, preaching, serving or worshiping your particular expression of Divinity;
  • thrive when you are surrounded by people of similar faith and conviction;
  • view the world through the eyes of your spiritual community;
  • tend to relinquish your authority to your spiritual leaders;
  • observes a religious lifestyle characterized by immersion in regular rituals;

#6: The Hermit

Hermit Spiritual Archetype Image

Are you a loner? The Hermit spiritual archetype prefers solitude. Anyone with this personality is introspective, pursuing a spiritual journey away from distractions. However, not all introverts have the hermit as their dominant archetype. Similarly, the hermit finds internal balance when meditating or studying spiritual aspects of life. But note that this solitude can turn into self-absorption and leading a secretive lifestyle. 

The Hermit’s traits:

  • you are insightful, introspective, passionate, meditative, loyal, intelligent, and receptive;
  • you feel the most at home with Divinity when you are alone;
  • in solitude, you learn how to be self and God-reliant, receptive, intensely focused, and intimate with the mysteries of life;
  • solitude gives you the space to simplify your life, get rid of distractions, and draw closer to the Divine;
  • you are an introspective person.

#7: The Mystic

Mystic Archetype Image

Now, the mystic spiritual archetype is naturally intuitive and sensitive. Hence, this archetype relies on feelings to discern messages from the spiritual realm. For example, the mystic may view their current struggles as a necessary step to discover their True Nature and connect to a higher calling. In turn, they hardly find pleasure or satisfaction in riches, fame, or status in society. They also view themselves as one with the universe. Consequently, they devote their lives to finding divinity in all aspects of life. If you are the Mystic archetype, you will be drawn towards transcending the ego and melting the boundaries between “you” and Infinite Consciousness. To you, the ultimate achievement in life is the unio mystica, the spiritual marriage between the self and the Soul.

You are the Mystic archetype if you:

  • are deeply sensitive, intuitive, and perceptive person;
  • have always sensed that there is something “beyond” the ordinary;
  • the pursuit of earthly pleasures such as fame, status, and riches has never appealed to you to the same extent as it does to others;
  • are wise, receptive, open-minded, and loving;
  • yearn for wisdom, love, and the ultimate freedom that comes from merging with your True Nature;
  • are devoted to exploring the Mystery that is life and inviting the presence of the Divine into your everyday life.

#8: The Prophet

Prophet Spiritual Archetype Image

When the Prophet spiritual archetype is dominant in you, you become the channel through which the spiritual realm communicates to humanity. As a Prophet, you have the gift of channeling and enlightening humanity with sacred knowledge. Whether through metaphysical gifts such as “second sight,” mediumship, and clairsentience, or through practices such as deep meditation and self-hypnosis, you are able to gain insight from spirit guides, angels, nature spirits, ancestral souls, or Consciousness itself for the benefit of others. In this world, you serve as a vessel or open channel through which wise, profound, predictive, and crucial guidance can be accessed.

You are the Prophet archetype if you:

  • are humble, receptive, open, expressive, intuitive, intelligent, and honest;
  • have the gift of channelling;
  • see yourself as a Divine Messenger who is skilled at receiving, understanding, and expressing the sacred mysteries to humankind;
  • have some metaphysical gift, such as “second sight,” mediumship, clairvoyance, etc.

#9: The Rebel

Spiritual Rebel Image

The Rebel spiritual archetype is a truth seeker. Anyone with this personality trait uses their insight to sieve through ideologies, illusions, and myths. That way, they tell apart the truth from misconceptions. Also, the Rebel archetype leads a lifestyle detached from any misleading spiritual concepts. Your ability to see through, challenge, reject, uproot, and expose limiting beliefs, traditions, and ways of life make you a powerful force of change in the world. Spiritually, your ability to see the truth is what endows you with immense wisdom and sacred understanding so often lacked by others. Your desire to reveal the truth at all costs is what makes you so loved and, at the same time, so feared by others.

You are the Rebel archetype if you:

  • are honest, perceptive, passionate, assertive, intelligent, insightful, open-minded, and rational;
  • see yourself as a truth seeker;
  • enjoy challenging the status quo, exploding dogmas, and exposing corruption;
  • are the bringer of death to old paradigms just as you are the bringer of life to new ways of living;
  • detach yourself from anything perceived to be untruthful, naive, or spiritually misleading.

#10: The Sage

Spiritual Sage Image

The Sage spiritual archetype is a knowledge seeker, a philosopher at heart who seeks to understand and teach the mysteries of existence. Anyone with this archetype invests most of their lifetime to study sacred texts, quotes from spiritual teachers, or any other material that will deepen their connection with the Divine. More so, these individuals can articulate their wealth of knowledge to others, either in writing or by speaking. Eventually, as a wise philosopher, the sage takes up the role of a spiritual guide or teacher in spiritual communities. 

You are the Sage archetype if you:

  • are intelligent, witty, articulate, curious, wise, generous, lighthearted, and charismatic;
  • love to collect knowledge that will help you to develop a deeper connection to the Divine;
  • are profoundly attracted to the role of the Teacher or Guide who has embodied their wisdom into self-expression;
  • hope (deep down) to someday share your knowledge with others;
  • have the gift of articulating your insight through speaking or writing;
  • enjoy analysis, abstract reasoning, ideas, theories, and philosophies;
  • are a seeker of wisdom through the vehicle of the mind.

#11: The Saint

saint archetype image

The Saint spiritual archetype has great compassion for humanity. This archetype views all lifeforms as sacred and needs to be preserved. As a result, they engage in benevolent causes like giving to charity, looking after endangered animals, or advocating for the rights of the needy and vulnerable in society. The Saint archetype values action as the highest form of love. Dogma and spiritual theories mean nothing to the Saint if they can’t be backed by loving action.

You are the Saint archetype if you:

  • are a sensitive, charitable, and intensely warm hearted person;
  • can’t stand to see acts of injustice, abuse or neglect committed against life;
  • are compassionate, benevolent, humanitarian, gentle, loving, proactive, practical, and loyal;
  • see all of life as sacred, no matter how small, marginal, or forsaken;
  • are the kind of person to take on the suffering of others and be the spokesperson for a movement or benevolent cause;
  • are the defender of the downtrodden, the protector of the abused, and the nurturer of the disowned.

#12: The Shaman

Shaman archetype Image

Finally, the Shaman spiritual archetype is a healer and a gifted storyteller. The Shaman archetype is also known as a medicine man/woman or a healer. This spiritual archetype helps other people heal on a soul level. If you are the Shaman archetype, you feel the most spiritually fulfilled when you’re helping others find health and wholeness again. Deep within you, there is the urge to heal other people of their ailments, whether they be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

You are the Shaman archetype if you:

  • are highly sensitive, sensual, intuitive, perceptive, compassionate, grounded, insightful, empathic, and energy conscious;
  • value manifestations from dreams, sacred history, and imagination;
  • are an empath who can tune into the subtle energy present in other people, animals, places and nature forms;
  • feel the most at home in nature;
  • are an outsider who notices things other people don’t seem to notice or care about;
  • love helping others find health and wholeness.

Conclusion

So, what is your spiritual archetype? Note that your dominant spiritual archetype can change over time. You may be a natural learner during your teen years and then transform to become a sage or shaman as an adult. These changes are due to our surroundings and interactions with different people and places over time.

Understanding The Law of Mentalism & How It Can Improve Your Life

Published

on

the law of mentalism explained image

The law of mentalism implies that everything is mental in nature. And that we are connected to the same consciousness that manifests all we see around us in thoughts. More so, every living thing has a level of intelligence that collectively explains the changes in the mental and physical world. So, how does the law of mentalism affect you? 

Let’s discuss below: –

Understanding the Law of Mentalism

The principle of mentalism is the first of the seven Hermetic principles. Hermeticism, a branch of ancient spiritual philosophy, describes mentalism as a foundational law of our reality. The other Hermetic principles are the principles of correspondence, vibration, polarity, rhythm, cause and effect, and gender.

According to the Kybalion, a book compiling all the hermetic principles, the principle of mentalism means “The All is Mind; the Universe is Mental.” Hence, the universe corresponds to mental projection, a culmination of thoughts by all living beings, past and present. God is consciousness, and the universe manifests the mind of God through our consciousness. 

The Mentalism Test: Mind vs. Ego

Below is a quick test that demonstrates how the law of mentalism works: –

Close your eyes and stay put wherever you are at the moment. All you are without your vision is a spec of consciousness. All you are in this place where you cannot see anything is that you are something that can be aware of.

If someone were to chop off your fingers or toes right now, God forbid, would you change your awareness once the pain subsides? No, right? And what if someone chops off your entire hands, legs, and everything on your body besides what you vitally need for your mind to continue functioning? Would you change anything? See, even with your eyes closed, you wouldn’t change a thing because we are all specs of divine consciousness, aspects of the same mind that created everything. The only thing that would change is the removal of those particular sensory inputs that your consciousness uses to experience the material world.

Now open your eyes. Suddenly, you realize thoughts define your story. You know, son of-, mother of-, daughter of-, I did this-, I did that-, I want this-, I like that-, I heard those people say this-, I am good at this-, I am weak at that-. This entire thought dialogue comes to mind when you realize that you perceive through the vision of the eyes in your head that is part of your body. And that when you look in the mirror, you see someone with a name; you. That’s ego or self.

Our ego gives us self-identity, creating a lens through which we see ourselves and those around us. Yet, essentially all we are parts or aspects of the original mind. That’s why the law of mentalism revolves around manifestation. 

The Law of Mentalism & Manifestation

Vision Board Template Manifesting Image

Manifestation implies that thought precedes any reality. And the law of mentalism is the only reason we can manifest. See, we can hold a view in our mind without ever sharing it with anyone, and at some point, this thought shows up in our lives.  

The law of mentalism is the only connection between your mind and what manifests in your life. Besides, this same mind manifests all we see around us.  

Creation, Spirituality & Law of Mentalism

We can also interpret the law of mentalism from a spiritual perspective. We came into being by a God with an everlasting, eternal spirit. Moreover, we were created to be separate but still connected to all. And we are blessed with the ability to think and create with or without instruction. Then, since creation can form independently, it is driven by an eternal power with a creative mind.

Using the Law of Mentalism to Improve Your Life

The law of mentalism effectively harnesses the power of thought and manifests whatever we put our attention on. And the first step to harnessing the power of our consciousness is by taming our ego. Here are some spiritual practices that can train the mind:

#1: Mindful Living and Meditation

Mindfulness relates to our ability to stay fully present in our prevailing circumstances. It involves resisting the ego’s chatter that tries to hijack our thoughts from the task at hand. Hence, mindful meditation helps us focus on a present sensation without being carried away by our internal dialogue. Examples of mindful meditation exercises include focusing on your breathing and living in the moment. Also, pay attention to your five senses and become your own best friend.

#2: Breathing Exercises

Our subconscious mind helps us breathe involuntarily for our survival. Through breathing, our bodies get just enough oxygen to function well. When we make breathing a conscious activity through regular exercises, more oxygen circulates the brain and the rest of the body for a calmer and clearer mind. Here is a 3-minute Kapalabathi breathing exercise you can try: –

  • Find your favorite spot where you can relax uninterrupted for the next 3 minutes.
  • Sit and relax your shoulders.
  • Breath in and out.
  • Gaze softly or keep your eyes closed.
  • Breath in halfway (a shallow inhale).
  • Breathe out strongly through your nose (until you feel your belly popping inwards).
  • Repeat the shallow inhale and the strong exhale ten more times.
  • Take 2-3 final deep inhales and exhales.

Avoid this breathing exercise if you feel dizzy, are expectant, have high blood pressure, or have heart or lung problems.

#3: Read Books on Spirituality

books on hermetic laws image

Find books, podcasts, and video recordings that give you spiritual insight on ideas and techniques you can apply in your life. Likewise, follow the authors on their social media platforms, and attend their meetups or book clubs to gain more tips.

#4: Help Others

When was the last time you did something kind for someone else? We can often tame the ego by shifting focus from ourselves. It could be walking our pets, visiting a friend in the hospital, doing some charity work, or lending a listening ear for a friend to vent. 

The Bottom Line

It is mind-blowing how much our thoughts manifest all around us. This godly power of consciousness is the basis of the law of mentalism. Understanding this fundamental law of reality helps us grasp the systematically universal law and apply it to improve our wellbeing.

Meet Your Shadow Archetype: The Dark Side of Your Personality

Published

on

shadow archetype image

Let’s face it. In every story, there is a hero and a villain. In your narration, you are both; the bright and dark aspects orchestrate the melody of your life. It is a melody that many of us opt to listen to on one side only. See, most people opt to focus on their bright aspects and suppress the dark side of their personality. Yet, this dark side often referred to as the shadow, will always be there. Besides, it can look small or big depending on your perspective on life. Are you willing to meet your shadow archetype?

Origin of the Shadow Archetype

Carl Jung, an influential psychologist of the previous century, is one of the few people that tried to bridge the notion of psychology and spirituality. That way, he hoped to discover ways to transcend the human condition. Hence, Jung traveled severally to India and immersed himself in different spiritual practices. His work would constantly evolve to produce a comprehensive analysis of such concepts as the ego, the shadow, the archetypes, and the anima and the animus

Understanding the Shadow Archetype

The shadow archetype is one of the four main categories of the Jungian archetypes that influence human behavior. As popularized by Mark and Pearson, these are inborn personalities emanating from the collective unconscious. The other categories of the Jungian archetypes include the persona, the self or ego, and the animus.

In particular, the shadow archetype consists of life and sex instincts constantly challenging the ego-personality. It takes intentional moral effort to become conscious of your shadow. It is about recognizing the dark side of your personality as present and real. Only then can we begin to understand ourselves and experience a personal awakening and authenticity

Carl Jung and Shadow Symbolism

what is your shadow archetype image

The shadow remained an intriguing topic amongst scholars. Carl Jung refers to it as a moral problem that challenges ego-personality. Further, he uses the symbolism of the shadow to portray this complex idea of the shadow archetype seamlessly and visually. Such visual imagery creates anchors with concepts already familiar to human cognition. 

Hence, Jung describes the shadow archetype as dark and elusive, impossible to catch, and alters its size depending on your current life circumstances. It forms darkness and distance from the body, something not many of us are eager to confront. Yet, the shadow becomes invisible when light appears. 

The Fear of Embracing Our Shadow Archetype

Now, most of us acknowledge the shadow archetype as an integral part of our existence. However, we remain willfully blind to it, conceal or camouflage it in a painful attempt to protect our self-image. It is an image that fits the narrative that we decide to expose. 

Further, social conditioning helps us construct a fallacy that we can keep the substrate of our constructed identity stable. We feel safe by ignoring the unknown aspects of our lives, hoping they will disappear. 

Still, how can we feel safe when what we are avoiding can invade our thought process and manifest in our actions without our control? Embracing the shadow archetype is inevitable. 

Implications of Denying Our Shadow Self

Note that we are as free as the mind allows. And when the mind creates barriers between individual reality and the rest of the world, illusions and neurosis may take over. Have you ever met someone operating in enforced ignorance? If so, you’ll notice such a person denying their shadow archetype in an attempt to preserve a certain status quo. But eventually, the enforced ignorance fuels the suppressed shadow to grow bigger. 

The dark side of their personality becomes more evident via projection in more aspects of their lives. Further, since the person is not even aware of the existence of the shadow, its effect can get out of control since we can only control what we understand. 

The Way Forward 

shadow emotions healing image

#1: Shadow Work

The best way to meet our shadow archetype is by undertaking shadow work. Shadow work is a lifelong process that entails intentional activities to discover the dark side of our personalities. Through it, we deal with our shadow elements like animalistic needs, sexual desires, primitive instincts, traumatic experiences, and even some positive aspects of our character that remain hidden for fear of being ridiculed. 

A typical shadow work approach may involve journaling our emotions and dreams to discover triggers of our shadow archetype. It also replaces our sense of guilt and anxiety with self-acceptance.  

#2: Seeking Professional Help

While facing the dark side of your personality can be scary, the ultimate results are rewarding. Still, the shadow has a challenging nature. That’s why shadow work may follow a sequence of assimilation through long hours or psychotherapy and introspection, often guided by a certified professional. Here, the therapist helps clients reevaluate and recalibrate their behaviors and beliefs. 

Ultimately, clients stay disciplined in asking themselves challenging questions about their lives. Like, how often do you question the nature of your reality?

#3: Dealing with Social Conditioning against Shadow Archetypes

Now, whereas shadow work is at an individual level, society has a significant influence in making the practice a success. Ideally, the world should be a platform for dialogue and constant experimentation. The shadow archetype ceases to be a moral problem and becomes a welcome part of our existence. If you find such ideas regrettable, it may mean that there are some shadow aspects of your life yet to be dealt with effectively.  

Conclusion

Anyone who wants full control of their life must be willing to embrace their shadow archetype. It revolves around accepting all aspects of our lives; tolerating what we are afraid of alongside what we want. Here, we face, analyze, and internalize our fears and darkness. Otherwise, denying the existence of the dark side of your personality will make you see it in others even more. 

Likewise, our society is packed with people whose actions are constantly at war with your intentions. That’s why; we should strive to define the moral imperatives that could alleviate our suffering. And, we should view everything beyond that with skepticism.

The Law Of Vibration Explained: How To Manifest The Life You Want

Published

on

what is the law of vibration image

Ask anyone to mention the 12 Universal laws, and they will most likely mention the law of attraction. However, not everyone would mention the law of vibration if you ask for more. You being here today and searching for it is a great start. This article will help you understand the law of vibration and how to use it for your benefit. 

What is the Law of Vibration?

The law of vibration is one of the 12 universal laws. This law states that everything, every object, and living thing is in constant motion. And everything vibrates at a specific frequency. The speed at which the objects vibrate is called frequency.

Frequency or the energy of somebody or something is not an item you can touch and see. However, you can always feel the energy of the frequency. You can always sense and react to it, like how you sensed that someone’s energy was off before. This is what we are talking about.

The best part of the law of vibration is that you can do more than feel the strength of the vibration. You have the power to sense low vibrational frequency and adjust it or step away from it. In simpler terms, you have the power to live with things that you only vibe with. You can either adjust it to your benefit or drop it.

How To Use The Law Of Vibration To Your Advantage

Vision Board Template Manifesting Image

It is not enough to understand how the law of vibration works. Let’s go a step further and discuss how we can use it in our favor. Below are the best ways to put the law of vibration into good use.

Manifest The Life You Want

If you increase your emotional vibration, you will wake up every day feeling enthusiastic, compassionate, and ready to conquer the world. Say, for example, you constantly feel stuck and bored. You may be experiencing a low vibration. One way to boost your emotional vibration is by meditating. Meditation can help relieve anxiety and stress and can help calm a mind that is all over. The more you are able to still your mind the faster your vibration will become.

Find a calm and soothing place for your meditation. Let go of everything and focus on your breathing for a few minutes. Your mind may wander and go elsewhere; that is normal, especially if you are new to meditation. When this happens, gently pull your attention back to your breath. Eventually, you will begin to witness your own thoughts arising and falling away. Meditating can also help you get into the right mindset to work towards what you have always wanted. And with the right vibration, you can concentrate and focus your attention to achieve your goals.

Practice Mindfulness to Be More Aware of Your Feelings and Emotions

Mindfulness helps you be more aware of the life around you. It is an excellent way to live more fully and not let life pass you by. By increasing your vibration you can rise above certain feelings and emotions and witness them from a more detached perspective. This creates a high degree of awareness around all aspects of your life. When you are mindful and aware of your feeling and emotions you can more easily release emotions that are negatively impacting your behavior.

Start by building awareness of yourself, the people around you, and your environment. This helps you be more considerate and thoughtful. Being more considerate and thoughtful will make you more compassionate and kind to yourself and others.

Use Vibration to Navigate Situations in Life

When you are more aware of your emotions and feelings, you can easily recognize high vibrational and low vibrational things in life. You can consciously choose what and who you would like to interact with. You want to be surrounded by things that are constructive and bring joy into your life. Most importantly, you will be able to remove yourself from situations, relationships, and environments that exist in a lower vibrational state.

Sticking to high vibration aspects of life can help you navigate every situation you need.

So How Can You Raise Your Vibration?

Happiness Chemicals Image

Your mood and emotions control your vibration. Keep in mind that your vibration affects the quality of your life. This is because it aligns and connects with things that vibrate simultaneously. So, you have to learn how to raise your vibration to connect with highly vibrating aspects of life. If you are operating at a vibration that is prone to negative and destructive behavior, this is what you will resonate with.

Here are the best tactics you can use to raise your vibration.

#1: Go Strong On Self-care

Practicing self-care does so much for your emotions and moods.

It makes you:

  • Feel much better about yourself;
  • Take a step back and review your progress with gratitude;
  • More aware of your emotions and mental state;
  • Relief from stress and anxiety.

With these, you come out with high vibrational energy, ready to connect with other high vibrational aspects of life. Remember that self-care looks different for everyone. It could be a spa day for you, yoga, going on a vacation, journaling, exercising, or even going out with friends. You need to find what makes you feel good and go for it!

#2: Nourish Your Body

Eating unhealthy food lowers your energy and your vibrational frequency. Bad eating habits leave you feeling heavy, tired, and bogged down. However, eating healthy leaves you stronger, lighter, and healthier. Check out our list of high-vibration foods.

Another way to nourish your body is to exercise frequently. It can be as simple as going out for a jog every day or practicing yoga. It leaves you fit and energetic to go after your goals.

#3: Surround Yourself With High Vibrational Things

Yes, it would help to cut off everything destructive. Surrounding yourself with people, things, and places that increase your vibration is the way to go. The external world has the power to influence your vibration. Surrounding yourself with toxic people or energy vampires will get you stuck in a negative cycle. It may be tough to completely cut some people off, but you can start by just limiting your exposure to them and setting healthy boundaries.

Also, remember that mass media and social media may lower your vibration. Filter the information you’re allowing into your energy field. Maybe it even makes sense to do a social media detox and spend some time away from any devices.

In Conclusion

The law of vibration makes it known that nothing is constant in the universe. Everything is in motion, and things with the same vibrational frequency connect. The takeaway from this is you should increase your vibration to connect with high-value aspects of life. With increased vibration, you can manifest all you want and work your way to achieve it.
