Vibrational frequency is defined as "the rate at which the atoms and sub-particles of a being or object vibrate. The higher this vibrational frequency is, the closer it is to the frequency of Light."1 Each word we speak and thought we think sends out a vibration that attracts to it an experience of like vibration. If we send out fear, we attract fear. If we send out love we attract love.
What does it mean to raise ones vibration or to increase ones vibrational frequency? Everything in the Universe is energy and energy vibrates at different rates. Each person has a unique vibration, which is the product of all of the influences he/she has ever encountered. The influences upon which we focus our attention or thoughts are those which determine or define our vibration. Negative vibrations are those which are associated with the lower chakras, those which have to do with what we consider to be "negative" emotions or feelings. Included in a list of negative vibrations would be hatred, anger, doubt, fear (of loss, lack, failure, etc.,) jealousy, envy, judgment, (both judgment of others and self-judgment,) impatience, disharmony, imbalance, insecurity, etc. Positive vibrations are those such as love, harmony, peace, balance, kindness, understanding, compassion, etc.
The so-called negative emotions are not in and of themselves bad. We all, at one time or another, experience anger and fear and doubt. These emotions only become harmful when we base our words or actions upon them. It is our intention, or the reason behind the word or deed, that sets up, or sends out, a vibration. We can feel anger about something and yet make a conscious choice to act out of love instead of acting out of the anger. When we do this, we are raising our vibration from one of anger to one of love. Even if you dont feel like acting lovingly toward a person or event which has made you angry, you can always choose to act out of self-love, knowing that to act out of love is, in the end, the best thing for you.
Not only does our vibration attract to us experiences of like vibration, but it also attracts to us people who are of the same vibrational frequency. Our own vibration is the one in which we feel most comfortable and it constitutes a particular "vibrational comfort zone" for each one of us. Our vibration attracts to us others who share a similar vibration, in order that we may remain in our comfort zone. We begin to feel "out of our element" when we are around people who are of a very different vibration from ours, whether it be a higher or a lower vibration.
