Everything in the universe, including humans, is made up of energy and vibrates at a certain frequency. When a person is operating at a high frequency, they are said to be “raising their vibration”, radiating life, love, joy, and gratitude. Read on this article to learn how to raise your vibration and why you should adopt those practices.

What Is Vibration?
From a scientific perspective, vibration refers to the oscillation or movement of an object or particle around a fixed point or equilibrium position. From a spiritual perspective, vibration is the energy and frequency of a person or object, which is believed to influence their physical, emotional, and spiritual state.
This concept is easy to understand. Everything is made from energy, deep down. And energy doesn’t exist in a binary state, but in a spectrum, ranging from very low vibrational energy to higher vibrational energy. You exist somewhere on that spectrum. Your thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and behaviors all play a role in determining who you are.
Low vibrations are vibrations at a slower and denser frequency. It is generally associated with negative emotions such as fear, anger, guilt, and shame, while high vibration is associated with positive emotions such as love, joy, gratitude, and peace. Raising vibrations means raising your awareness of the world and yourself, escaping the self-limiting thoughts and unhealthy behaviors of the low vibration to gradually embrace the high vibration.
Raising Your Vibration From A Scientific Perspective
As we choose to engage more with high vibrational activities, the abundance of energy from those activities is transferred to us, raising our vibration. From a physical perspective, the mechanism behind this is related to the concept of resonance.
In physics, resonance is the phenomenon of an object or system vibrating at its natural frequency when it is subjected to an external force or stimulus that matches its frequency. When an object vibrates at its natural frequency, it becomes more efficient at transferring energy, which can lead to an increase in its amplitude or intensity.
To put simply, resonance is when something starts shaking or vibrating because something else is shaking or vibrating nearby.
Imagine a tuning fork vibrating at a certain frequency. When another tuning fork of the same frequency is brought close to it, the second fork will start to vibrate in sympathy with the first one. This is an example of resonance in action.
Now imagine that the tuning fork represents a person’s energy field or vibration, and that the external force represents their thoughts, emotions, and actions.
When they choose to “align” themselves, or to “navigate” towards high vibrational activities and thoughts, they received the beautiful energy radiating from them. We are all energy, and when 2 energy meets, they blend together, resonates and together amplifies to greater intensity.
When a person cultivates positive thoughts, emotions, and actions, they are essentially tuning themselves to a higher frequency or energy state. This allows them to resonate with other people, experiences, and opportunities that are in harmony with their vibration, and to attract more positive outcomes into their life.
How To Raise Your Vibration and Consciousness?
To raise your vibration, essentially you need to elevate your energy to higher frequency. Navigate yourself towards higher source of energy, adopt practices such as meditation, positive thinking, self-care, and mindfulness. Acknowledge that mindset is everything then shift your mindset to focus solely in the present moment. Below are a few practices you can use to raise your vibration.
Essentially meditation is just you training to be aware of your breath. You learn to be present and not let you mind wander around. If you do notice that your mind drifted away, gently bring your attention back to your breath without judgment or criticism.
Through meditation, you learn to let go of distraction and be more aware of your inner experiences. You get to be alone with your thoughts, learn to observe them, but not engage with them and let them interfere with your inner peace.
After practicing meditation for a while, you should notice a considerable boost in happiness and clarity. You become aware of your emotions and learn to just…let them be. You get playful, silly, smiley, curious – becoming a child again! You shift your outlook towards the world, seeing daily chores and activities not as responsibilities but more as a game to enjoy.
More importantly, you should feel a newfound kind of peace, stillness, and inherent power flowing within you. A relaxed, light, and calming energy embraced you, and you see the world as it really is, with no judgements.
Yoga is quite related to meditation. Originated in ancient India, Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice involving a series of postures, known as asanas, that are designed to improve strength, flexibility, and balance, as well as breathing techniques and meditation. Yoga is more of a physical practice that incorporates meditation techniques. The various stretching postures of Yoga target very specific points on the human body where energy is concentrated. When the body is tense or tight, it can create blockages in the flow of energy in these “nodes”. Yoga unlocks those nodes, allowing the body’s energy to flow more freely. Several visualization techniques employed during Yoga sessions should allow you to “see” how your energy changes after proper Yoga training.
Once those blockages are unlocked, you are overflown with energy, raising your vibration, connecting you more deeply with your true self and the universe. The meditation techniques let you appreciate the present moment more and see the beauty even in the insignificant details of life.
Walking in nature
Nature’s healing power is not just a figment of imagination; it has been scientifically proven that spending time in nature can improve your overall well-being. Walking in nature allows you to connect with the natural world, giving you a renewed sense of purpose and meaning. The fresh air, sunshine, and peaceful surroundings have a way of lifting your spirits and re-energizing your soul. As you walk, you become more attuned to the present moment, allowing you to appreciate the simple pleasures of life that are often overlooked. Walking in nature is a form of therapy that can help you find balance and harmony in an increasingly chaotic world.

Just dance. Dancing is a wondrous experience that sets your soul free. Every step you take is like a brushstroke on the canvas of music, creating a unique masterpiece of movement and sound. The rhythm takes hold of you, and suddenly nothing else matters as you lose yourself in the dance. Dancing is essentially singing in an athletic way, so if you love singing, don’t afraid to dance.
Still, with all seriousness, have you ever listened to a song so good that you dance along the lyrics, or at least move your body along with the beat? Our body loves rhythm, and since the ancient days we have been dancing with the drums and chanting. The feeling of synchronizing your body with an external form of “vibration” (i.e. sounds and music) actually raises your happiness level, and, of course, raises your vibration.
Moreover, dancing in a particular way can release your pent-up emotions. Music that conveys strong emotions may involve the dancer to move in an abrupt way, illustrating the “strong” energy, while music with softer melody may go well with gentle body movements. The awareness of the interconnectedness between your inner emotions, your mind, and your body gives you a better “understanding” of some sort to yourself. That’s how your vibration raises: from a lack of alignment to being more in tune with your mind-body works
Singing or playing music
Singing and play music is the same as dancing. Singing allows you to connect with the melody in an auditory way, while playing music connects you with every single detail in the melody. It gives you the feeling of “creation”. You basically are creating beautiful vibrations out of thin air! The air surrounding you with no music is not vibrating much, but as soon as you start to sing or playing the piano, you vibrate the air around you in such an harmonious way that you and others get to experience the beautiful melody.
When playing music, especially to an audience, you are bringing joy to others. You are raising the vibration of not only yourself, but of the entire audience. If they start dancing – even better!

Chanting or reciting positive affirmations
Mind you, words are also energy. To utter a phrase, you have to use energy. Imagine how exhausting it is to speak continuously for 1 or 2 hours.
Chanting or reciting positive adds a very subtle and nuanced kind of power to your words. Your words are no longer neutral. They carry extra positive energy that may have an influence on your mindset. When we repeat positive statements to ourselves, we are essentially reprogramming our subconscious mind to believe in these statements and to act accordingly.
These changes don’t happen immediately. Good things take time. You should chant or recite positive words to yourself over a continued period of time. 50 – 60 times a day is a good number. You may find it silly at first, but over time you should get used to the habit. You can even place sticky notes around your house to remind you of that. Bedtime is usually the best time to repeat positive affirmations, as the positive words are remembered by your brain right before it slips into subconsciousness.
Below is a good starting list of affirmations for you:
- “I am worthy of love and happiness.”
- “I trust the journey of my life and know that everything happens for a reason.”
- “I am filled with energy, vitality, and confidence.”
- “I release all negative thoughts and emotions and embrace positivity and peace.”
- “I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.”
- “I am grateful for all the blessings in my life.”
- “I radiate love and compassion to all beings.”
- “I am deserving of success and abundance.”
- “I am strong, resilient, and powerful.”
- “I am surrounded by positive energy and good vibes.”
However, do not let yourself fall into the trap of toxic positivity. It’s good to remind yourself of the beauty of things around you at times, but do not purposefully ignore or suppress your negative emotions. Understand that your experiences are valid, and instead of steering your life towards that supposedly “positivity”, try to accept things as they are. Know that you went through not-so-good things, but at the same time know that those feelings are only impermanent, and you can choose to be filled with love and light. Remember the Law Of Abundance: there is infinite love in this world for you.
Journaling or writing down positive thoughts and feelings
Journaling is essentially doubling down on the reciting positive affirmations method, only in a different form (writing instead of speaking). It reinforces your mindset and slowly puts you on the path to raise your vibration.
Gratitude is an absolutely amazing thing to have. We tend to take things for granted. A lot of things. In a world where we have so much, almost to the excess, appreciating what we have seems odd. What’s the point of appreciating something that you can access almost anywhere, anytime you want (like the Internet for example)? We are also taught to constantly strive for better and better things in life. Setting such a high expectation for ourselves make us forget that the things we currently have are already valuable.
Instead, practice gratitude. Focus on the little things in life. Take the time to slow down and notice the simple pleasures in life, like a beautiful sunset or a kind word from a friend. Cultivate an attitude of appreciation and focus on what you do have, rather than what you don’t. You learn to be contend, and that’s how you raise your vibration. Less things to worry about, and less things to stress about.
Spending time with pets or animals
Pet is healing. Dogs are therapeutic. Cats can be bossy at times, but they are indeed amazing. Even if you’re not a dog or cat person, you can always try befriending a bird, a fish, or any animals to your liking. Animals remind us of our origins. We have existed with them for a good while, and we will continue to do so. They are a part of nature, just as much as us. Having some friendly animals by yourself connects you more intimately with nature.
Take dogs for example. They are descendants of wolves. Dogs are often drawn to outdoor environments, such as parks, forests, and beaches, where they can explore and engage with their surroundings. They are also highly attuned to changes in weather and natural phenomena, such as thunderstorms and earthquakes, and may show signs of anxiety or restlessness in response to these events. In addition, dogs have a keen sense of smell, making them amazing natural hunters. They can be more in tune with this world than us. As you learn to care for animals, your vibrations raise, allowing you to extend your love to non-human beings.
Taking a warm bath or shower
You are not bathing. You are “cleansing your mind and body with herbs, fragrance, and water”. Water has strong symbolic meaning in many traditions. One of them is “rejuvenating and giving life”. After a long day at work or at school, do you notice that you tend to feel so much fresher and calmer after bathing? Scientifically bathing cleansed the bacteria that you collected during the day, but from a spiritual perspective, you are also cleansing your “energy”. A long day of interacting with other people tampers with your energy and “aura”. Bathing is a great way to allow yourself to return to your “original” aura, as you are. You shed your “day” energy. It’s a purifying experience.
Watching a comedy or doing something that makes you laugh
No matter what kind of comedy you chose, as long as you laughed, it works. Laughing is amazing. It is contagious, radiant, and healing. Imagine hearing a joyful laugh (not in the middle of the night in your house where you live alone though). A joyful laugh spreads so easily, and even if you’re not in the mood, you can always join in with the laugh. You’ll be surprised at how it lifts you up
