How to Elevate Your Energy

Updated: Nov 4, 2023


Have you ever found yourself in a low-vibe state, feeling drained and uninspired? We've all been there. But the good news is that it's entirely possible to shift from a low-vibe mindset to a high-vibe one.


In this blog, I'll share my personal strategy for making this positive transformation.


Self-Awareness Can Start to Elevate Your Energy

The first step in elevating our vibe is to become self-aware. Pay attention to our thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. Try to notice when you're feeling low and identify the triggers.

Awareness is the key to change

By recognizing what's bringing you down, you can begin to take the necessary steps to transform those moments into opportunities for growth and positivity.


Mindful Energy Breathing

One of the quickest ways to shift our vibe is through mindful breathing.

It just takes a few minutes, but the impact can have a dramatic, positive effect on your day.

The breathing ladder exercise is a simple yet effective technique for relaxation. It helps calm your mind and reduce stress. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:


Step 1: Find a Quiet Space

Choose a quiet, comfortable place where you won't be disturbed. Sit or lie down in a relaxed position. Close your eyes if you feel comfortable doing so.


Step 2: Focus on Your Breath

Start by taking a few deep, cleansing breaths. Inhale slowly through your nose, allowing your lungs to fill, and exhale through your mouth, releasing any tension.


Step 3: Begin the Ladder

We'll start with a count of four, and increase the count with each cycle, but you can adjust it to what feels right for you.


Step 4: Inhale for Four Counts

Inhale slowly and steadily for a count of four. As you do, feel the air filling your lungs, feel it oxygenating your body.


Step 5: Hold for Four Counts

At the top of the ladder (the fourth count), pause and hold your breath for another four counts. This is a moment of stillness and focus.


Step 6: Exhale for Four Counts

Now, exhale slowly and evenly for a count of four. Imagine releasing any stress or tension with your breath.


Step 7: Pause for Four Counts

At the bottom of the ladder (the fourth count of exhalation), hold without breath for another four counts. This pause allows you to find stillness and peace.


Step 8: Repeat

Repeat this process several times. As you become more comfortable with the exercise, you can increase the count to five, six, or more if it feels right. The key is to maintain a balanced rhythm and stay focused on your breath and stay internet he present.


Step 9: Gradually Increase Energy and Center

As you continue the breathing ladder exercise, you'll notice a growing sense of energy and centered awareness. It's a simple yet effective way to de-stress and energize.


Whenever you're ready, gently open your eyes and return to your day with a refreshed state of mind.


Get Energy From Gratitude Practice

Gratitude is a remarkable and transformative tool that has the power to elevate your overall state of being. When you take just a minute to reflect on 10 or more things you are grateful for, the effects can be profound.


These sources of gratitude can range from the small, everyday joys, such as savoring your favorite morning beverage or basking in the refreshing embrace of fresh air outdoors, to more significant elements that have left a lasting impact on your life.


The act of acknowledging and appreciating these blessings, no matter how big or small, redirects your mindset from a place of scarcity to one of abundance.

It's as if you're recalibrating your inner compass to focus on the richness of life rather than its limitations.

This shift in perspective can be a beacon of positivity. It can influence your thoughts and actions in a way that attracts more positivity into your life. In essence, practicing gratitude is a simple yet profound way to raise your vibrational frequency and invite more joy, contentment, and fulfillment into your everyday existence.


Surround Yourself with Positivity

Your environment plays a significant role in your vibe. If possible, surround yourself with positive people. If positive people are not available, try uplifting music, an inspiring podcast, or even a YouTube video that boosts your mood.

Create a space that fosters high vibes.

Add some things in your space that make you happy: from a plant to a fish tank, to a photo, or a favorite book on the shelf.


Shifting from a low-vibe to a high-vibe state is entirely within your reach. By practicing self-awareness, mindfulness, gratitude, and positive habits, you can elevate your energy and transform your life. Remember that this journey is unique to you, and the key is consistency and self-compassion. Embrace the power to raise your vibes and live a more joyful, fulfilling life.


On Your Side,
