What Does It Mean to Vibrate Higher?

Western society, lately, has begun to embrace a few ethereal philosophies. This shift has lead to the common use of a few terms that perhaps some of us aren’t quite hip to or lack clarity on. In browsing the web, yoga studios or underground media, you might have come across the phrase, “vibrate higher”. You might not have understood it but felt it resonated with you or maybe you thought nothing of it at all. In actuality, this term is grounded in science but is essentially what spirituality is all about.

In the current phase of scientific discovery, it is believed that atoms are the simplest form of all matter. These atoms bond together to create molecules which are the smallest unit of a chemical compound. The most commonly known example of a chemical compound is water which is formed by the binding of 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom. It is understood that molecules are in constant translational and rotational motion, meaning that even objects that appear solid are actually always moving. This is referred to as molecular vibration. In 1905, German physicist Albert Einstein presented his Theory of Relativity with the formula: E = mc2 (“m” standing for mass, “c” for light, and “E” for energy). It explains that all matter, or mass, can be converted into energy and vice versa. Energy exists on vibratory levels of low to high frequency and its characteristics, such as whether it’s visible, heat-generating, high-pitched, etc., are determined by where it falls on that scale.

Human beings are special in that we are aware of these concepts and have the ability to alter our energy, and thereby our vibrations, by the choices we make. The same way we decide which radio frequency to tune in to for our favorite music or talk shows, we have control over what we tune into on an energetic level when interacting with our surroundings. Those who consider themselves mediums or psychics who are able to communicate with the spirit realm are tuned into higher frequencies that allow them to be in touch with realities that others are not. The same would be the case for animal whisperers and prophets. According to what we know about physics, technically, all humans are capable of such skills. To some degree, most of us notice it when we get an odd feeling that something is about to happen just before it does or when we get “bad vibes” from people we just met. Some people are born with one or more of these special abilities already developed while the rest us would require much practice due to existing on such low vibrations for so long.


Unfortunately, due to the state of Western society, we face a lot of obstacles when it comes to raising our vibrations. We are exposed to unclean and synthesized foods, we live hectically with little room for genuine spirituality, we are convinced that money and the possession of things are what make us important and that particular sizes and shapes define our beauty. This bombardment of falsehood keeps us rolling on the hamster wheel of pomp and circumstance leading us to put all our focus on things that, in essence, matter not in the grand scheme. This might explain the growing epidemic of psychological and physical dis-eases and civil unrest amongst communities. Depression, chronic pains, segregation, and hatred are all symptoms of living on lower vibrations. While it is no easy task, the simple solution to all of this is to start with the self.

Author and movie producer Darryl Anka once said, ““Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” With this in consideration, you can manifest a better world by starting with yourself. There are a few depictions out there about how this works, one of which is a Coke commercial broadcasted a while back. It shows how small acts of kindness can have a huge impact. When we are kind, courageous, loving and generous, even in unpleasant situations, you not only do yourself a service by being your best self for your own well-being but you become an example and an inspiration for others to do the same as they go one about their lives. These are the small changes that can alter a society over time. Remember, in spite of an atoms microscopic nature, its interactions with other atoms create significant happenings every day from the formulation of the water you drink to life itself.

The next time you hear the phrase, “vibrate higher”, I hope it takes on a deeper meaning for you. Keep in mind that you are a countless amount of atoms that came together to make a countless number of ever-moving molecules. Those molecules came equipped with different levels of consciousness or vibrations that you are free to explore. I hope you consider to explore the higher planes and encourage those around you to consider it as well. When you start to operate on higher planes of consciousness, you ultimately take part in changing the world for the better. Namaste!

Happiness Journey: An Introduction

It seems, today, that everyone is trying to find their happiness in something. We strive towards the lives we think we want through our careers, relationships, and even health. Somewhere in the midst of all the grinding, we realize that with each promotion, new lover or pound lost, after the initial elation has faded, there is still something missing. Why is it such a struggle to find long-lasting satisfaction? The answer for me was to simply stop looking outside of myself.

I grew up in a happy home for the most part …or so I thought. As I got older, truths were revealed to me that had not been so during my childhood. Consequently, I became more aware of myself and realized that things were not as peachy as I had originally perceived. While I cherish the beautiful moments of my life, in retrospect I was, in fact, not really happy. In reality, I was riddled with anxiety and depression. I often felt unheard and did not have a handle on my emotions. I was physically unhealthy; overweight and lethargic. Regardless of being blessed enough to vacation regularly and receive lovely gifts on holidays unlike many other children, true happiness was not something I understood until much later.

I’ve had quite a few experiences that chipped away at my self-esteem. So much so, after a while, I further perpetuated the idea that I did not have much worth. Once I began to turn my life around, it was like I had developed a new set of eyes for how I saw myself in the past and present. It turned out that my lack of respect for myself opened the door for others to treat me with disrespect. I would complain and take out my frustrations on others (usually by accident) and myself, in unhealthy ways which only made matters worse. Paradoxically, I was self-conscious but not very self-aware. Thankfully, I’ve made some significant improvement with this. It is a on-going process.

It was not until the end of 2016, age 27, that I really started on the path to genuine fulfillment. I gained more life experience and knowledge about the world and myself. I was tired of the mundane lifestyle of doing what I thought others wanted of me. Instead, I decided to take a different route and live life my way. I turned to a more holistic and natural lifestyle. I distanced myself from toxic people and worked consistently on making myself less toxic. I started on a career path that brings me joy and purpose without the need of approval. Most importantly, I learned to love and appreciate myself more deeply which trickled onto my interactions with others.

I find it important to share this as it is the fuel behind my writing and all of my work. I almost did not begin this blog because I do not consider myself an expert writer or life liver; however, I realized that wasn’t the point. My passion in life has always been to bring joy and healing to the world in some form or fashion, so I decided to join the ranks of sharers – experts and novices alike – who have unknowingly poured into my life so much and helped me along my journey. I’ve come across many people over time from varying backgrounds and one thing is constant – each of us has a story. That story is usually filled with pain and a quest to find happiness. So, as you find bits of my story throughout my blog, I hope that it helps you find the answers you need and inspires you to pass the torch. Namaste.
