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?
|co-dependent/ clingy||judgemental||reckless/ chaotic||negative|
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 😉.
A Visual Breakdown of Consciousness
(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.
A Spiritual Breakdown of Consciousness:
|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.”

-Better Yourself by seeking knowledge.
In ALL Worlds:

⭐️ 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.
