B*tch, Don’t Kill My Vibe: The Guide to Sustaining Good Vibes

The term “Good Vibes Only” has become trendy in recent times, but do we really know what it means? Without an accurate definition of “vibes” or vibration, we can misunderstand how to sustain it. There is a misinterpretation that good vibrations are facilitated by external circumstances (i.e.- being surrounded by good food, music, people, crystals, incense, etc.) And while those things can make the mood enjoyable, they are not what sustains our good vibes. If we depend on things outside of ourselves to raise our vibration then we are, in fact, sustaining a low vibration 😱.

Have your actions been labeled as any of the following? 


Do you find yourself surrounded by these types of people? 

toxicmiserable/ unhappynarcissisticclose-minded
co-dependent/ clingy judgementalreckless/ chaoticnegative

If yes, now is the time to polish your life by doing the internal work of raising your vibration and sustaining it. Below is a breakdown of vibration aka consciousness which will help you to do so. We are not basic b*tches over here, okay! And remember, the best teachers lead by example 😉.

(Understand where your emotions rank on a scale from high to low) 

Big Thanks to Dr. David R. Hawkins for creating this spectrum of consciousness.

Now that we understand the emotions and their corresponding vibration, I want to offer a spiritual perspective. In Buddhism, different levels of consciousness are referred to as the Ten Worlds. The Ten Worlds are within us and we cycle through them moment by moment. Tina Turner gives a beautiful breakdown of the Ten Worlds in her novel Happiness Becomes You, which is where this information was gathered.

10 Buddhahood 😇Total freedom, wholeness & connection to the universe
9 Bodhisattva 🙏🏿Compassion & joy in helping others
8 Realization 💡Understanding the truth
7 Learning 📚Learning the truth
6 Heaven 😋Temporary satisfaction of fulfilling desire
5 Tranquility 😌Relative calm
4 Anger 😡Ego dominated by conflicts & arrogance 
3 Animality 🤤Being swayed by instinctive behaviors
2 Hunger 😈Being controlled by insatiable desires
1 Hell 😔Suffering

Now comes the good part. Here are ways to raise and sustain your consciousness.

Ways to Elevate from Lower Worlds/ Consciousness/ Vibrations:

“If you can’t find peace within yourself, you’ll never find it anywhere else.” 

-Marvin Gaye, Legendary Singer  

-Take a deep breath and come back to the present moment. 

-Weigh the pros and cons of the decision you’re about to make.

-Acknowledge the positives (being alive, able-bodied, having clean water to drink, etc.)

-Pray, chant, and/or connect with nature.

-Remember that each world is temporary. 

Ways to Elevate or Maintain Higher Worlds/ Consciousness/ Vibrations:

“Let your personality serve the energy of your soul.”

 -Gary Zukav, American Spiritual Teacher 

-Give back! (through knowledge, time, money, kindness)

-Better Yourself by seeking knowledge. 

-Show gratitude. 

In ALL Worlds: 

-Drink water.

-Eat fruits & veggies.

-Speak kindly to yourself & others!

⭐️ Biggest takeaway: all emotions, actions, and thoughts have a vibration. The vibration you emit becomes the reality you live in. Change the thinking, change the situation.

  1. Thanks for sharing your insights!
    I truly believe the highest vibration comes from love and happiness.
    But finding peace and happiness is sometimes really hard.

    Your words are very inspiring and practical so I can practice little by little on a daily basis to find internal peace regardless of external circumstances.
    I am going through a lot these days and your wisdom is really cheerful!
    I will
    -Drink water.
    -Eat fruits & veggies.
    -Speak kindly to yourself & others!


    1. Min! I’m so glad you stopped by! Happy these words of wisdom could help you find internal peace. Make sure to share the wisdom with others 🙂 Hope to see you again. Thanks for the support ✨


  2. This was a good mental check list! Often we do associate “good vibes” with outer happiness and even our own appearance, when the vibes should elevate within. I’m learning to look within and cleanse myself from negativity. Being cautious and conscious about vibrations and whom you’re surrounded by is a must! Great read and I’m proud to know you. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Aww, thanks Rell! The best method is always to look within. Glad the info could help. Thanks for the thoughtful comment. Hope to see you around these parts some more 🙂
