The great spiritual quest: how to raise one’s vibration. I believe this concept is imprecise and misunderstood. Suffice to say that I teach it is more accurate that we should strive to improve and enhance the quality of our frequency, which affects our overall vibrational (emotional) state of being.
I wish to share what I believe to be a very practical and enjoyable way to achieve this desired vibrational state and build a spiritual foundation for all members of your tribe, in whatever way you define that. This also presents an opportunity to turn anything you do in life into a transformative consciousness vibrational-raising spiritual event.
Teal Swan addressed a question from the audience about reaching a “more spiritual” state. She describes such a spiritual state as any activity that we truly focus on and “pour our energy into.” Her example was an athlete playing a sport, completely engaged, and immersed at the moment.
In this “zone” or state of being, Teal claimed this athlete is “more spiritual” than most people who spend hours meditating. Some may view this as a controversial statement. However, her answer resonated with me, thinking that this was a unique perspective and valid teaching point.
Upon further contemplation, I realized that this was not an exclusive concept, but an expansion on commonly taught aspects of the Law of Attraction explained and described with a fresh view and understanding.
The notion of “more spiritual” parallels the popular concept of “raising one’s vibration,” which has become a buzz phrase in spiritual circles.
Abraham Hicks teaches that we must always be mindful of our emotions, how we feel, as this is our point of attraction. The vibration we offer is mirrored back to us by the Universe and the Law of Attraction.
Therefore, we must seek thoughts and take actions that make us feel good so we can enter our vortex of creating, “pouring our energy” into whatever we do. Energy flows where your attention goes.
Aligning with the divine tendencies of abundance, well-being, prosperity, etc., we become a vibrational match to our desires, to what we wish to experience as the Universe begins to reflect this state of being into our subjective reality.
I am most aligned, in sync, or simpatico with the Divine when I am either outdoors in Nature or at the gym working out. These are my zones and the spaces in which I pour my energy into the experience on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
In these two scenarios, I have my best prayers, talks with God-Source, clarity, answers, and inspiration. I completely let go of critical thinking or distracting realities of the daily grind; I get out of my way and allow Source to come in.
When we pour our energy into things we do, focus on positive thoughts and experiences, we essentially change our emotional state of being, improving and enhancing our vibration, and achieving our new point of attraction. Meditation, yoga, etc. are excellent tools to achieve this; however, they are not everyone’s cup of tea.
I have pondered how I might teach this more practically; I desired to impart what I have learned over the years to my kids, grandkids, and others not open to mediation, yoga, or spiritual conversations in general. I wish to take this “more spiritual” concept to my tribe and empower them with the same tools to pass along in their respective tribes.
A thing that I truly enjoy, that makes me feel good, improves the quality of my vibration, and evokes a sense of prosperity and well-being, is a family gathering, especially centered around food. Cooking and serving food are profound metaphors for demonstrating love.
Family and Community are major concepts of Shamanic teachings. Sharing is an important teaching in Kabbalah. All that said, pouring one’s energy into such an occasion transforms a simple dinner or gathering into a spiritual event. Consider:
- What if we invited our families and friends to share their beliefs, views, and their questions with us in an informal open setting?
- What if we expand our normal dialog, talking points, and mundane chats to real heart-to-hearts, open communications, discovery opportunities, and teaching moments?
- What if everyone “at the table” was comfortable in these discussions, eager to engage in spiritual deliberations?
- What if this became part of the family dynamic?
Don’t wait for special occasions or holidays. Fire up your grill. Make plans to watch the game together.
If you wish to be “more spiritual” you have options. Become mindful of even your most mundane tasks, and pour your energy into them. Place your full attention, focus, and intention on taking a run, writing in your journal, cleaning the house, or going fishing.
You do not have to meditate or journey or do yoga. You don’t have to endure sweat lodges, experience vision quests, or follow some “spiritual” protocol. You don’t even have to go to church.
Call your tribe for a gathering, especially with food. You invite so many spiritual concepts here, prospering each other with the gift of food, raising everyone’s quality of vibration, and sharing and teaching. You do not have to seek out God-Source; that is already within you, and the family will bring even more when they come.
