It’s true that when we start to spiral downward, we can easily continue spiraling. A difficult day at work; someone taking our parking spot; a friend cancelling an outing we looked forward to; a surprise expense spoils our budget… any number of events can affect how we respond to life. Even picking an unwanted angel card can make us close up our energies to the good intentions of the message and behave as if the universe doesn’t care about us. Yet, it is our response to the occurrence that is most telling about how we move forward, not the event itself. We have the ability to consciously choose the energetic vibration we emit in our thoughts, words, behaviours, and emotions and improve what the world reflects back to us.
Easier said than done? Here are some simple ways to quickly and easily elevate your state of being.
Express gratitude for the wonderful things that come onto your path. Be in awe of life. Be excited by it, and you will attract more of what’s wonderful.
Angels can only approach us when we ask them for assistance. Practise asking for your needs to be met, then be aware of the small shifts that occur around you. Even knowing you aren’t alone can help lift your spirits. What if you don’t believe the angels love you? Pretend they do. Act as if you are of the most precious essence to them. In cultivating an attitude that you are lovable, you impact the way positive energy flows to you.
Make time for self-nurturing, a self-loving act. Treating yourself as worthy of love will, in turn, attract more love to you.
Consider the possibility that each occurrence in your life is both relevant to your soul’s growth at this time, as well as a reflection of how you engage in the world. If it is not what you wanted or expected, can you find the lesson, or blessing, inherent in it? For example, if someone cancelled an outing, were you meant to be at home to support someone in need? Did redirection to another parking spot lead you to positively something you were already holding in your thoughts or needed to experience? Could a surprise expense somehow teach you to reflect on the abundance that already surrounds you? Was work difficult because you were focused on others’ energies and not on grounding yourself?Life is what you make of it. Every bump in the road provides an opportunity to learn something more about yourself. We always have choice, including the choice of how we interpret anything and also how we respond. Each time you respond in a way that is more fully aligned with your true, loving nature, the more your soul continues to evolve. And being in the frequency of love feeds our Spirit and connects us with one another.
Make it a daily practice to check in with your energy level. If it is sluggish or vibrationally low, determine how you may be negatively interpreting something, then consciously choose to approach it differently. Look, too, for lower energies you may have absorbed from others. This can show up as just not feeling like yourself. If this is the case, consider doing any of the following:
- Take a long bath. You might add pink Himalayan salt. Soaking in water draws our own energies in closer to our bodies, again, and helps release that which isn’t serving us.
- Call on Archangel Metatron to align your chakras. He has the ability rebalance our energies with his sacred cube.
- Ask Archangel Michael to release all lower energies that have accumulated in us. Envision Michael placing a huge vacuum over your crown chakra that draws out toxins, unwanted vibes, negative remarks, and proclamations of being undeserving. Next, see your body filling with a cooling blue light, then thank Archangel Michael for clearing and cleansing your body so you are more closely connected to your true self.
- When you catch yourself feeling affected in any negative way, sweep your hand in front of our body and say, “Cancel, clear, delete.” This action releases the hold of any negative thoughts.
You can stop what you do not want in yourself. Check in with yourself frequently throughout the day to strengthen your awareness. Stop the downward spiral and choose to elevate your energy upward. As you practise this, the more easily you can identify when your energy is out-of-balance. The sooner you do that, the sooner you can choose to turn things around by altering your thoughts, feelings, words, and behaviours. And when you align with the higher, positive vibrations, the more closely you’ll align with the higher frequencies of the universal realm, attracting more love, light, and joy into your life.
