Maintaining a High Vibration…What’s the Big Deal?

February 9, 2017

If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, or those that often promote the benefits of positive thinking, you have heard them discuss the concept of vibration. What is exactly is vibration? It is basically an indicator of the level of positivity we are projecting. The theory is that, since we are all made of energy, the more positive our thoughts and emotions are, the more we project high energy positive thoughts, and create more positive situation in our lives. In essence, when we are at a high vibration, we are full of positive energy that will attract high quality and fulfilling circumstances in our lives.

What type of positive situations can this high vibration attract? Anything you desire, really. As long is it lines up with the will of God, you can “ask anything in my name and it will be given to you” . I wrote in a previous article, Is Vibration Biblical? that when you maintain a high vibration, you are in essence following the will of God in 1 Thessalonians 5 where we are instructed to pray constantly, be joyful always, and pray at all times. When we are at our highest vibration, we are joyful, full of gratitude, and in regular communication with God.

There are other benefits as well. I recently read an article called 12 Manifestations of a High Vibration. This article provides further information about vibration, and the benefits are what many people seek in their own lives. I’m sure you can find one or several that will resonate with you.

Many inspirational speakers say that if you focus on keeping your personal vibration and energy level high, you automatically open yourself up to an avalanche of blessings. Think about it… it’s the people that are most joyful, appreciative and in constant contact with their Creator that get the most out of life. I recommend you check out the above article to get specifics. So seek God first, appreciate what little or lot of good you have in your life, and focus on remaining in a joyful state as often as possible. You will then experience the benefits that your high vibration offers. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Try This to Stay in the Present Moment

August 3, 2016

I love how my 13 year old daughter has embraced the classic rock music I listened to at her age and still do today. One of our favorite songs is “Feels Like the First Time” by Foreigner. As I was humming this tune the other day, I was reminded of a great piece of advice I read about remaining focused on the present moment.

There are so many benefits to staying focused on the present. When you live in the moment, there is no room for guilt or regret from the past, or fear and worry of the future. You are also operating at your highest possible vibration. Of course when your vibration is high, you are thankful and joyful for the great things in life, and you open yourself up to receive them.

So let’s go back to the song in our intro. One of the best tips I’ve heard in a while about remaining focused on the present is to do things as if you are doing it for the first time, even things you do every day. When you sit down for a meal, savor and enjoy it as if it’s your first time doing so. Use all five senses to see the appetizing creation that is nourishing your body. Hear yourself chew it. Smell the wonderful aroma. Feel as it as goes into your mouth and stomach. And savor the delicious taste. When you take a shower, see and be thankful for the hot water that pours down. Feel it as it cleans your body. Smell the beautiful fragrance of the soap that is also cleansing your body. Hear the water pouring out. Again, experience it with the awe and wonder you would if it was the first time you were doing it.

This may seem simplistic, but it does wonders in helping you enjoy activities in the present moment. I recommend you try it. All things you do today, focus on it as if it’s the first time you are ever doing it. Then, as you focus on the present moment, be thankful for all that you are and all that you have at that moment, and for the opportunities you have to do all the things God has enabled you to do. You will enjoy life so much more than hopefully you already are. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Find Out How to Deliberately Create Your Life

May 4, 2015

Did you know that you have the power to create your life? It’s true. I know what some of you are thinking right now. It is God that controls my life. After all, He created it in the first place, and He has full control. I would never disagree with that statement. It is true, and I often state that one of the wisest things we can do in our lives is let go and let God take control.

The more I learn about life on this earth, the more I learn that God wants to use us to accomplish His will. He wants to use us for His glory and greatness. In order to do that, I have learned that He has left much of the responsibility in our hands. I believe He wants us to be co-creators with Him, to accomplish His great will.

Although God is the ultimate creator, He has always used people to bring it about. Think of the greatest inventions. God had them in mind since the beginning of time, but used people to carry them out. Heck, He even uses people to create other people!

I have studied the idea of deliberate creation for some time. However, I read the most clear definition I’ve seen to date, and I would like to share it with you. It comes from Abraham Hicks in the book “Ask and it is Given”. Deliberate creation is defined as “focusing on what is intended while being constantly aware of one’s vibrational state of being, and connected to one’s Source”.

To me this is further proof that he have control of the circumstances in our lives, and we don’t have to let them control us. In this definition, I see a simple, 3 step formula that can help you, me, or anyone create the life they desire:

  1. Determine what you intend to be/do/have – The first step in the deliberate creation process is to set an intention. What exactly do you want? Once you have determined the exact desire, affirm the intention as often as possible. This works well for two reasons. One is that once the mind is locked on an idea or intention, it finds ways for you to act upon it and bring it into manifestation. Also, when you affirm that you intend to accomplish something, you don’t have the negative resistance from the subconscious canceling out the positive thoughts. For example, if you affirm “I am at my perfect weight” and you are unhealthy at the moment, your mind may prompt you to look in the mirror and remind you how untrue that statement is. When you say you intend to be whatever your perfect weight is, it is more believable, and your mind can focus on the goal with little or no resistance.
  2. Maintain a high vibration – I have written about the importance of vibration, which is the level of energy you are projecting. The higher your vibration, the more you set yourself up for blessings and the achievement of your desire. Often these blessings arrive in ways you would have never imagined. You can maintain the highest vibration by living in a state of joy, gratitude, and positive expectation. This step alone can transform your life. You can also use it hand in hand with the first one. When you affirm your intentions, visualize what it would be like to already have it and feel those high, positive emotions that raise your vibration in the process. This will certainly speed up the process of creating your ideal life.
  3. Stay connected to God – As with the other steps, you can bring great blessings into your life by following this step alone. Staying connected with God automatically keeps you at the highest vibration level. And when you ask specifically what God wants for you, it is impossible for that prayer to not be answered! I find that when I am well connected to God, I am much more clear of exactly what I need to act upon, and what I can leave in God’s hands for Him to do. I also know if I am going on the right direction, or if I need to detour and take other steps to go somewhere else.

When you follow this process, you can indeed create the life you are seeking to live. You can be or do anything you desire. You are co-creating with God because you are doing your part to make it happen, and allowing Him to do His. And remember, with God all things are possible. I recommend you start with this simple process to begin creating your dream life.

This is a small sample of the creative process. If you are seeking more in depth knowledge and practice of the creative process, I recommend this program by Dr. Robert Anthony, The Secret of Deliberate Creation. This program provides in depth information of you how to use the power of your mind along with this creative process to remove doubts, fears, and thoughts of failure, and take you instead to great confidence and success.

You may not think so, but you are creative. God made you that way. One of the greatest gifts He has given you is the ability to work with Him to create the life He wants you to live…a life of joy, adventure, and success. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Here’s the Most Basic Way to Raise Your Vibration

April 23, 2015

If you are familiar with the Law of Attraction, you have heard of the concept of vibration. In case you don’t know, your vibration is the level of energy you are projecting. When you are at a high vibration, it means you are thinking positive thoughts and maintaining positive emotions. At a high vibration level, you allow positive situations and blessings into your life. When your vibration is low, you are doing the opposite. You are in essence resisting the good that God has for you, and you are subconsciously creating negative situations for yourself. Obviously, you want your vibration level to be as high as possible, as consistently as possible.

So how you do raise your vibration? Is it a difficult process? As far as raising your vibration, there are many different ways to accomplish it, and what works for one person may not necessarily work for another. Regardless, it does not have to be a difficult process.

I recently discovered a very easy way to maintain proper focus to keep your vibration high. It comes from something I’ve read countless times before. If you would like to know more, click the link below for the full article I wrote about the topic…

3 Simple Ways to Raise Your Vibration

I also welcome you to share what works for you in increasing your vibration to a high level. It would certainly help me and my readers. Thank you in advance 🙂


2015 New Years Expectations

January 2, 2015

Once again it’s time for my annual post to look ahead to the coming (now arrived) year. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I refuse to call these goals New Years resolutions. Expectation has the thought that it is going to get done, not the “maybe” shadow of a resolution. Here’s what’s on my mind and what I would like to accomplish in the coming year. If you share of any of these goals, I hope some of my thoughts and ideas of can help you and we can reach these goals together:

  • All action, no talk – Unfortunately, I still have much of a reputation for being the opposite. I don’t know if it’s lingering fear, the Pisces in me, or a still lacking confidence, but up ’til now I’ve still had the strong capacity to talk a big game but procrastinate in acting towards it. This year it’s time to maintain an action based focus. It’s about being a doer of the Word, and not only starting the action, but seeing it through to completion.
  • Focus on vibration and high emotion – I share often about the importance of maintaining a high vibration. When we remain high on the emotional scale, we open ourselves up for unlimited blessings. As well as I am aware of this, there are still too many times where I leave my emotions on automatic pilot and let much time go by without catching myself on the lower vibrational plane. I make the expectation to check in at least hourly, and bring myself to the highest vibrational level as often as possible. Another way to make this happen is to live in the present moment. Without the guilt of the past or the worries of the future, it is much easier to maintain a positive focus and the highest emotions.
  • Be more “others” focused – I truly love people. I am blessed with the most wonderful family and core of friends, and I also love meeting and bringing light to people from all over the world. The reason I have this blog in the first place is to share the abundant wisdom I have learned to help you and everyone reading this to live a more joyful and abundant life. Upon saying that, I will share that I still consider myself to be a selfish person. I say this because my focus is still too much of what’s in it for me. On one hand, it is important to maintain a self focus (see bullet #2). However, the what’s in it for me part will be taken care of automatically as long my focus is instead on how can I help others get what they want. What action can I take now to bring value into as many lives as possible?
  • 1000 daily blog visitors – Now I move on to the concrete goals. This one has been a goal for some time now and it is ambitious since I am nowhere close at this point. To go hand in hand with the other goals, taking consistent action, remaining in a high vibrational state, living with an “as if” mentality, and keeping the focus on building up others, I certainly expect that it will happen.
  • Stabilize my job situation – Ok, I may have to be careful who’s watching with this one 🙂 For the past year I have been working two jobs, both which exhaust me with many negative people and situations. I realize I am blessed to have them, as some people are desperately looking for any job, and they have contributed to a major improvement in my finances. At the same time, it’s time to do work that I will enjoy, contribute to many people in the world, permit me more freedom and time with family and friends, and provide the income to bless my family for necessities (my oldest daughter starts college in the Fall), and leisure. I expect to have that type of work this year.

I thank you for staying with me in this journey inside the mind of this author. Once again, I will say that if you share any of these goals, I invite you to contribute ideas about how you plan on achieving your expectations. Even if your exact goals are different, I would love to share this journey of taking life to the highest level possible with as many people as I can. Together we can make a difference and enjoy a very blessed and prosperous 2015. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
