In order to Elevate your life, we work with a simple set of 5 principles that serve to rise you to your fullest potential and create a long-lasting transformation. Today I will be talking about the fifth and final principle: Elevate.
We have spoken about all of the elements that create and add to elevating our lives, be it grounding practices, radiant health, reclaiming power or discovering purpose. The final step in the process is now to rise up!
So how do we achieve this elevated state?
There are many answers and ways of doing this, today I will share 3 simple steps you can use to help you vibrate higher.
Frequency of Love or Fear
The first way we can rise up is by becoming aware of the frequency we are operating on. Love is the highest vibration there is and ideally the best place for us to be functioning from. Fear is the lowest.
Each time we take action it will either be driven by love or by fear, as both vibrations cannot both be present at the same time. Therefore, our actions can only be based on one of two things, either:
A negative vibration of fear, or;
A positive vibration of unconditional love.
John Lennon says:
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
All of the qualities assigned to the vibration of love are positive and provide that elevated feeling that is sought far and wide. Fear is full of negative emotions. We may have learned to live from a state of fear based on our upbringing, friends, or work colleagues but it is up to us to change.
Love is our natural state of being. It is time we begin to embrace our true nature and step away from possession, from fear, and into joy, freedom, expansion, and love.
When you have the choice… which you do, always chose love over fear.
In order to rise up and elevate, it is important to use this question as a daily reminder:
Right now, in this very moment am I operating from love or fear?
This will serve as a guide to ensure you are aligning your frequency with that of love.
The second tool we can use to elevate ourselves is gratitude, I recently spoke of this in the power segment. Gratitude is something that I adopted as a practice many years ago, after I noticed the positive effects that it had on my life. The art of gratitude made me feel abundant every single day. Whilst everyone else was out there comparing themselves, longing for what they did not have, I was saying thank you for what I did have.
This switch in mind-set automatically moves you into a higher frequency. I saw no need to compare myself to others, as we are all on our own journey. Despite the good intentions of many of those teaching about gratitude, the missing key is the feeling of gratitude. For it is the feeling of gratitude that changes things and it is important that we understand the energy pattern behind the sentiment.
If you write down ten things you are grateful for every evening before you go to bed but you do not feel the shift in energy as you write then it is an empty exercise. This practice will achieve very little, even if you feel a bit better. In order to create prosperity and encourage more to enter into your life, you must truly feel the value of and an appreciation for every gift and blessing.
Choosing to focus on the good we are already experiencing, allows us to be content with what we have right now. Regardless of whether we have the lifestyle, dream job or money we desire. Acceptance and gratitude for your life exactly as it is places you automatically into a better vibrational frequency and attracts more for you to feel grateful for. If we are already practising gratitude and feeling this feeling on a daily basis, the universe will only deliver that of a matching vibration. Like attracts like.
As I wrote in my book Twenty8: The Age of Power, my teacher explained it to me like this:
"The energy pattern of gratitude within your consciousness and bio-field will then attract to you by sympathetic resonance more events and gifts about which to feel gratitude. Conversely, if you focus upon the perception of lack, inequality and victimhood (which the mass media perpetually encourage), then you will attract further events which resonate with this energy pattern”.
A great way of incorporating gratitude into your daily practice is practising this tool at the end of each day. I will look back over my day and instead of saying, how was my day? I will ask, what am I most grateful for?
Tell me, what are you most grateful for today?
The third way to elevate your life is by creating a positive, abundant, limitless mindset. The mind is a very powerful tool, and if used correctly can assist us in acquiring everything we ever dreamed of. If we do not master the mind, we will find ourselves stuck in the same pattern cycles and habits that do not serve us in the long run.
These limiting beliefs that we develop over time may start out small, but if we are not careful can become big road blocks. Brian Tracy tells us:
