Five Ways To Live A High Vibe Life

I’m a big believer that life is what you make it.

Circumstances may not always seem to get better on the outside, but we do– we have the choice to change within, and to grow stronger from the challenges life throws our way.

There have been a variety of things that have helped my life improve over the past couple of years.  Happiness is cumulative; we don’t magically become content overnight, but each and every day we have the opportunity to add positive things that will build over time.

Start Your Day With An Intention

Having a mental map of what you want to accomplish each morning is important to start the day on the right foot.  Do you intend to be kinder?  Are you hoping to be more grateful?  Would you like to remain mindful?

Maybe your intention is small, but it’s important to remember it throughout the day.  It could make all the difference in turning a frustrating day into a beautiful one!

Eat Clean

Giving up meat and most processed foods has been a slow-go; although I have dabbled with going meatless for the last few of years, it wasn’t until recently that I took it seriously.  Boy, does clean eating change things.

My energy has sky rocketed, workouts are more enjoyable, and I’m doing my part to help the environment.

Stay In Your Lane

This was the best advice anyone has ever given me.  When you get into the middle of someone else’s drama (especially when it doesn’t pertain you), you’re immediately sucked into their low vibes.

Sometimes we try and be “fixers,” and that’s totally okay- but know your limits.  It’s great to want to help people, but understand when it’s time to step back.

Gossip in general is low vibe energy, and remember- when you point the finger, there’s three pointing back at yourself.  Many use gossip as a bonding tool (haven’t we all?), but it’s some of the most harmful and hurtful types of bonding there can be.  Be mindful of the company you keep- are they benefiting and enriching your life, or causing you chaos?

Make Time For Joy

As you go about your daily commute, stop and smell the flowers.  Take the time to go in for that latte.  Play in the sprinklers.  Enjoy the sunset.

The most simple pleasures are sometimes to most beneficial- remember not to take them for granted.

The Spiritual Benefits of Not Eating Meat

So, I’ve made a major change in my life:

I quit eating meat.

It’s been one full week going completely meatless, and I’ve felt better than ever. I’ve been sleeping well, am full of energy, and my skin looks healthy with a glow.

I went vegan for a period of time in the past, but this effort has been different than when I did it for weight loss and something new to do: this time, it’s for spiritual and ethical reasons.

Throughout my entire life I’ve had a strange relationship with meat. Feeling both slightly disgusted and skeptical about where it was from, what exactly I was eating, and what types of chemicals or treatment the animal endured, it has been difficult for me to eat meat without thinking too much. I’m no PETA member, but I do have a difficult time imagining my meal having a life of its own.

Over the past year I’ve been toying with the idea of completely giving up meat; I’ve read numerous articles and watched videos about the spiritual benefits of eliminating meat. I’ve learned how consuming meat products is essentially consuming energy from the animal, as well as all of the chemicals. What a frightening thought. I’m extremely sensitive to energies around me, and what I put into my body is no exception.

As I make strides in assuring I keep my frequency high, cutting meat from my diet is one of the many ways I can raise my vibration.

You know the old saying, “you are what you eat-” and although I’ll miss a good burger or a filet mignon, I have more confidence in my health, mind, and spiritual condition.
