Chances are, you’ve stumbled upon a tune that instantaneously made you go, “That’s my jam!” Or felt an inexplicable sense of calm wash over you amidst a serene natural setting.
The world around you, even the universe itself, is humming, pulsating, and reverberating with a secret melody. And it’s this inherent rhythm that’s the essence of vibrational energy.
The allure of it is that it’s everywhere. From big galaxies to tiny molecules, everything joins in this special orchestra of energy.
As Nikola Tesla said, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” And when you come to the realization that you are an integral part of this universal rhythm and harmonize with it, you’ll likely see how it puts that “extra” in the ordinary.
What Is Vibrational Energy?
Everything—the chair you’re sitting on, the air you’re breathing, every cell in your body—is in perpetual motion, vibrating at different frequencies. It’s one of the 12 Universal Laws: the Law of Vibration. And it’s what we recognize as energy.
From the rise and fall of the sun to the rise and fall of our breath, from the beating of our heart to the infinite vibrations of atomic particles within our cells, we are a mass of vibrations that miraculously resonate together as a single system.— Anodea Judith, trainer of Mindvalley’s Chakra Healing Quest
According to Anodea Judith, a leading chakra expert and trainer of Mindvalley’s Chakra Healing Quest, “all life is rhythmic.” And there’s science that backs it up.
Quantum physicists have long argued that everything, at its core, is energy. This energy, this vibration, has both high and low frequencies, each impacting us differently.
What is low vibrational energy?
Low vibration is dense, heavy, and can leave you feeling drained. External factors like poor diet, lack of sleep, and negative company and internal factors such as your fears, doubts, and insecurities can contribute to this energy state.
What does that look like? Well, think of the days when nothing seems to go right—your alarm doesn’t ring, you spill coffee on your favorite dress, and your laptop decides to update right when an important presentation is due.
These incidents, while seemingly random, can often be attributed to low vibrational energy. But the silver lining? Just as you can slip into this low vibrational frequency, with awareness and intent, you can rise above it.
What is high vibrational energy?
A high energy frequency refers to a state of positivity, vitality, and clarity. And it’s often associated with feelings of love, compassion, and gratitude.
For example, this could be when traffic lights are always green, your favorite song comes on the radio, or someone buys you a cuppa joe. This serendipity is the magic of this vibrational energy.
“There’s something really powerful that happens when you realize that you get to choose how you perceive your experiences,” says Jennifer Patridge, an EFT therapist and trainer of Mindvalley’s Tapping Into Emotional Mastery Quest.
There is, in fact, evidence that shows positive feelings and thoughts can help bodies heal. This leads to better health and helps you reach your goals faster.
And by honing in on a high vibrational state, you’re more likely to attract positive experiences, manifest desires, and contribute to your overall well-being.
Vibrational Energy Chart
A vibrational energy chart is a visual representation of different energy frequencies associated with emotions, feelings, or states of being. The chart typically ranks emotions or feelings from low to high vibration.
For instance, emotions like fear or shame might be at the bottom, representing low vibrations, while emotions like love or joy might be at the top, signifying high vibrations.
You can use these charts to identify and elevate your own vibrational frequencies. And you can then elevate yourself for personal well-being and spiritual growth.
How Do You Feel Vibrational Energy?
You’re constantly receiving signals, both innate and from the world around you. This comes in all shapes and sizes, like goosebumps during an emotional song, a gust of wind coming from out of nowhere, or an inexplicable bond you feel when you meet someone.
“Tuning into this higher awareness gives us fantastic guidance,” says Jeffrey Allen, a renowned energy healer and trainer of Mindvalley’s Duality Quest.
Those aren’t mere coincidences. They are your body’s way of acknowledging and resonating with positive and negative energy frequencies.
What Is Vibrational Healing?
For those moments when your energy feels out of sync, vibrational healing can help with restoration. It’s like tuning a musical instrument—ensuring every note (or, in our case as humans, energy center) resonates in harmony.
There are various modalities, each with its own unique approach. And they’re all centered on the same principle: harmonizing your energy to enhance overall well-being.
1. Sound healing
Every sound wave has a frequency. When channeled correctly, they can interact with your body’s energy fields, which then promote healing and balance.
There are a few sound healing modalities to choose from:
- Tibetan singing bowls,
- Tuning forks,
- Binaural beats, and
- Many more.
These therapeutic sounds aren’t just for creating music; they’re tools of transformation. By immersing yourself in them, you can clear blockages, raise your vibrational frequency, and even alleviate physical ailments.
2. EFT tapping
“Tapping blends modern psychology, Chinese medicine, and neuroplasticity with a deep spiritual practice,” Jennifer explains in her Mindvalley Quest. And here’s how:
- The modern psychology aspect encourages you to speak your thoughts, feelings, emotions, memories, and limited habits out loud.
- The Chinese Medicine part borrows from treatments that apply pressure to certain body points. Tapping on these spots helps energy circulate smoothly.
- The neuroplasticity factor of tapping can help change how your brain thinks. It turns fearful thoughts from bad experiences into feelings of safety and love.
- The spiritual practice component focuses on bringing more love, understanding, and kindness into your life, especially when dealing with pain or fear from past troubles.
The beauty of EFT tapping lies in its simplicity. With just your fingertips, you possess the power to combat stress, anxiety, and even deep-seated traumas.
Delve into ancient Japanese traditions, and you’ll encounter Reiki—a practice that combines the universal life force energy with individual energy centers.
It’s rooted in the idea that both our bodies and the universe vibrate with life force. And this force, oscillating at different rates, embodies what’s known as vibrational energy.
By aligning and fine-tuning these frequencies, Reiki practitioners can help restore harmony and address imbalances in your energetic aura.
What Food Has the Highest Vibration?
The concept of “you are what you eat” takes on a deeper meaning when discussing vibrational energy. Beyond just nutritional value, foods are believed to carry specific frequencies.
Those that are known to be healthy are foods with high energy levels. And vice versa with consumables that are low.
Here’s an example: Imagine two plates before you. One holds a vibrant, freshly harvested salad, and the other, a processed fast-food burger.
From an energy perspective (without diving into the nutritional aspects), the salad resonates with a higher vibrational frequency. It’s alive, raw, and packed with nature’s goodness. The burger, while perhaps delicious, lacks this life force.
It’s essential to note that no scientific research quantifies vibrations in these food groups. Many of these foods are primarily valued for their general health benefits.
And with that in mind, here are some foods that can supposedly increase vibrational energy:
- Leafy green vegetables
- Fresh fruits
- Quality proteins
However, not all foods are considered beneficial in this regard. Some, despite their appeal to our taste buds, might carry lower vibrational frequencies. Here are the ones with potentially lower vibrational energy:
- Fried foods
- Highly processed foods
As you make mindful choices about what you eat, you might observe changes in your mood, energy, and overall well-being.
6 Ways to Use Vibrational Energy to Attract What You Want
Self-healing and spiritual growth have a lot to do with vibrational energy. But that’s not all—it’s also a powerful tool for manifestation.
After all, the Universe responds to frequencies. And by aligning yours with your desires, you set the stage for serendipities.
So here are six ways you can raise vibrational energy:
The age-old practice of meditation is your direct line to the Universe. When you meditate, you clear the noise that often distorts your inner frequency.
“If you pay attention consciously to what’s going on inside you, on what you are thinking, you can actually change your world,” says Christie Marie Sheldon, an intuitive coach and trainer of Mindvalley’s Unlimited Abundance Quest.
Visualizing your goals during meditation further amplifies this effect. It’s like sending a vivid postcard to the Universe, detailing exactly what you seek.
And the Universe, in its boundless generosity, responds.
Words wield power. When used with intention, they become vibrational signatures.
Affirmations are positive, present-tense statements that you declare to the Universe. They solidify your desires, transforming them from mere wishes into palpable realities.
“The only thing you can really change is your mind,” explains Jeffrey in his Duality Quest on Mindvalley. “Yet that can change everything.”
The thing is, it’s not about mechanically repeating words. It’s about feeling them, embodying them, and letting them resonate through your very being.
This practice is much like planting seeds. With consistency, belief, and a sprinkle of patience, you’ll watch them grow, manifesting your desires in ways often beyond imagination.
3. Nature walks
The rustling leaves, the gurgling streams, the whispers of the wind—they all hum with primal, vibrational energy. By immersing yourself in it, you’re recalibrating your energy.
“As you embrace your deepest nature, the energies of your being shine forth into your body, your mind, and your world,” Donna Eden, an energy medicine expert and trainer of Mindvalley’s Energy Medicine Quest, highlights.
It’s such a simple energy healing practice. So put on your shoes and make a date with nature.
4. Healthy eating
As mentioned, high-vibrational foods—those that are fresh, organic, and filled with life force—can significantly elevate your energy. So think colorful fruits, vibrant vegetables, nuts, seeds, and quality meats.
Science shows that there’s a food-mood connection. And when you infuse your body with the nutrition it needs, it’ll help regulate your moods.
As a result, you’re not just ensuring physical health but also crafting a vibrant, energetic blueprint for the universe.
“Whatever happens, we have to be grateful for getting the chance to live our life,” Christie notes in her Unlimited Abundance Quest.
The thing is, gratitude is a powerful force that can uplift and transform your energy in remarkable ways. And by genuinely feeling thankful for what you have in your life, you elevate your emotional state, drawing yourself closer to positive, high-vibrating energies.
There are plenty of gratitude practices to choose from—journals, jars, meditation, and so on and so forth. For example, for filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, it’s through the world of fungi as he explains to Vishen on The Mindvalley Show.
People vibrate, much like musical notes. When you surround yourself with high-vibe individuals—those who radiate positivity, passion, and purpose—you create a collective resonance that’s profoundly powerful.
Remember, energy is contagious. A high-vibrational community can uplift, inspire, and amplify your manifestations. It’s no surprise that Donna emphasizes, “The greater our internal resonance, the more deeply we can resonate with those around us.”
So seek out these radiant souls. Form bonds, share dreams, and manifest collectively. In the symphony of life, let your energies create a harmonious, resounding crescendo.
