Have you ever walked into a room and felt like the very energy of the room made you feel more alive? Or on the contrary, have you walked into a room and felt the complete opposite – like the energy had literally been sucked out of the room or like the tension could be “cut with a knife?”
Read on to discover how doing “this one thing” will change your life…
Intuitively we are able to pick up on the “energy” around us. It can be subtle or in your face and many people don’t understand what they are feeling but nonetheless, they know they feel it.
Einstein said, “Everything in life is vibration.” The entire universe is made up of molecules vibrating at different speeds – trees, rocks, animals, plants, bodies, thoughts, feelings, emotions. Even objects that appear to be stationary, such as the chair you are sitting on, are vibrating. Some molecules vibrate faster and some vibrate slower.
When you are vibrating at a higher level, you feel lighter, happier, more positive, and more compassionate. In contrast, when you are vibrating at a lower level, you feel heavy, sad, fearful, anxious, and irritated. At what level are you vibrating right now?
If you want to immediately increase your vibration, give thanks. Gratitude has the power to quickly elevate your vibration. When we express gratitude our brains immediately release dopamine and serotonin, two crucial neurotransmitters responsible for improving our moods. Life coach Tony Robbins says that “gratitude is the antidote for the things that mess us up.” Not sure what to be grateful for? Are you breathing right now? Be thankful. Do you have a place to sleep tonight? Be thankful. Is your town getting much-needed sun or rain right now? Be thankful. Do you have a few things that make your life easier? Be thankful. Do you have people in your life to love and who love you back? Be thankful. Do you have a job? Be thankful. Will you get to eat today? Be thankful.
Living a life of gratitude and making it a regular habit will change your life. Being grateful will open the pathways of other high vibration emotions, such as love, generosity, forgiveness, positivity, and joy. A great way to start is by keeping a journal by your bed and every night before falling asleep, write 3 things for which you are grateful. A general rule of thumb is to write one thing about someone else, one thing about yourself, and one thing about anything else, such as how happy it made you when your fur baby met you at the door or how free you felt sitting in the warmth of the sun while a gentle breeze seemed to blow away all the cares of the world for a moment.
The benefit of doing this at night is that gratitude activates the hypothalamus, which will help you get into a deeper and healthier sleep cycle. Also, your unconscious mind will continue to process the last thing you focused on before sleep and can influence your dreams. To dream from a place of high vibration and gratitude can create a beautiful dream life.
To borrow a line from the Eurythmics, “sweet dreams are made of this.”
