Wow, I’ve been tagged by my good friend Belle at Abundance Journal and she was tagged by Cardin at OptimistLab, to play the High Vibe game which is all about what 5 ways do I use to raise my vibe.

Vibe – vibration, the words have actually been around a long time and used by so many. Perhaps the first time I heard of good (high) vibrations was via the Beach Boys’ famous song. It’s a song of pure positive and joyful appreciation expressed towards another, with just a little testosterone thrown in :)

Today vibration IS the name of the game, when it comes to those of us who listen to the teachings of Abraham/Jerry & Esther Hicks.

I have many ways of raising my vibe and some come to me in the moment brand new and fresh. I like to change things up alot, so I’m never stuck or bored by any one thing there is always something new I create.

And here’s some of my 5 favorite ways I raise my vibe:

1. I look up – literally.

How many times I’ve noticed that when I’m feeling low, my gaze is actually low to the ground. This works best outside but can work inside, too. I go outside and literally just look up and around, there is so much more to focus on than the limited perspective of the floor/ground and my feet. When I simply look up and around, I feel an immediate shift and lightness in my vibe.

2. I read my Well Being Cards.

I’ve ‘stolen’ this idea from Jerry and Esther Hicks and made up my own Well Being cards, some have Abe sayings, some have my own sayings, some are taken from the inspiring words of others or friends. Here are a few examples of them:

Once I drop the judgement, I’m on my way.
Let’s start feeling all emotion as holy.
Hope – having one positive expectation (hey, I can do that!)
Utter well being is lurking out there.
Everything at its core, is letting you love you.
In this moment, I allow things to be as they are.

3. Humour

My sense of humour never fails me, even in moments where I can’t find anything funny in the situation, which is pretty rare, well then I have a stock of Seinfeld and Daily Show episodes that I can always watch. I crack myself up with my own laughter, my laugh is full and hearty and genuine and so easily accessed. My husband loves to watch certain shows but will wait till I can watch them with him, because he says my laughter makes it that much more enjoyable. Laughter is one of my best medicines.

4. Pet your cat

I once heard Abraham say: when all else fails, pet your cat. It’s just one consonant over from pet to get, so somehow I misheard. It seems when all else fails, I actually ‘get’ a cat. I’ve got my limits though, and right now 5 is the limit. My brand new kitty, Muffin, is instant pleasure, he is pure connection – live, play like there’s no tomorrow and sleep.

5. Acceptance

High vibing is usually accessed best when you are not far from it. If you are pretty darn low in how you are feeling, it’s possible to quantam leap your way up to high vibing. It won’t be maintained though unless high vibing is where you typically hang out. Times when I’m feeling bad and it feels like a circle of feeling bad that I can’t get out of – those are the times when acceptance works best for me. The more I fight how I feel, the more I judge that I could even feel this low, the more I feel bad. When I understand that this too shall pass, when I love myself anyway, when I understand that oh, here’s this place I sometimes visit, no big deal, it’s a little blip – then I pass through it so much easier. Understanding that I have that choice to experience something kicking and screaming all the way or finding my way back to peace, which is ulitmately finding my way back to Love, that’s where’s it’s at for me.
