To live a happier, more joyous life, you must keep your vibration high and find ways to exude positive energy as much of the time as possible.
If you mostly rest in a low vibration, where you complain, rant, judge, and criticize all the time, then you are attracting more of that energy back into your life.
It’s going to be next to impossible to manifest money, a healthy relationship, or anything else you truly desire when you’re coming from such a low-vibe place.
But when you have high vibrations, you are are grateful, healthy, happy, and content. You attract more high vibrational people, experiences and opportunities into your life naturally.
Thus, manifesting becomes a piece of cake!
And that’s what we want – easy peasy manifestations that are fun to request and pleasant to receive.
In this post, you’re going to discover twelve ways you can keep those vibes all the way up so you can manifest any and everything you truly desire!

Do You Need To Raise Your Vibration?
First, how do you know you even need to raise your vibration in the first place?
When we talk about vibration, we really mean your mood, temperament, and the energy you feel both inside and what you’re putting out into the world.
It’s a blend of your physical and emotional state.
When you’re super sleepy and haven’t had any rest, even if you’re not necessarily sad or angry, your vibration may still be off because your physical body is uncomfortable.
Likewise, if you feel well-rested and don’t have any physical ailments, but you are upset with your boyfriend, or someone at work just pissed you off, your vibration is low because of your mood.
An easy way to tell is to consider how you feel right now on a scale of 1 to 10.
One is the ultimate low, ten is an ultimate high.
If I’m below a seven, I don’t try any manifesting work until I feel better, and I suggest you do the same.
12 Ways To Raise Your Vibration
1- Care For Your Physical Body
This probably goes without saying, but you need to take excellent care of your physical body.
Everything from the amount and quality of the food you eat, the amount of water you drink, how much caffeine and alcohol you consume, whether you have any bad habits like drugs or alcohol, the amount of sleep you get, how you maintain your hygiene and how much exercise you get all impact your mood and energy level.
The first thing you should do on an ongoing basis to ensure you feel your very best is to make sure you eat a healthy diet, stay hydrated, get enough rest, and at least a moderate amount of exercise.
It’s good for overall wellbeing, and your vibrational energy will be higher, on average.
What you want is a consistent baseline of feeling good, so you don’t have to work so dang hard.
If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready!
2- Scripting Your Vibration
Next, a great way to raise your vibration is to write a letter describing how you want to feel – but in the present tense as if you already feel that way.
For example, if you’re feeling a little low, tired and worn out, pull out a piece of paper and a pen, and write a quick letter or note describing how energetic, happy, grateful, excited and pumped up you are about your life, or about your day.
3- Try A Gratitude Blitz
A neat little exercise I just stumbled upon in this really great law of attraction book that I highly recommend is called a “gratitude blitz.”
All you do is either speak out loud or write back to back a TON of things you’re grateful for, as fast as you can.
Then at the end, you either write over and over “Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU”, or say it aloud.
It’s impossible not to feel incredibly excited and fired up once you do this!
It legit feels like a shower of positivity washes over your entire body, and I’m serious – the first time I tried it, I felt like my body was tingling.
I recommend setting a timer. Five minutes is plenty for this exercise.
You write any little thing you can think of and don’t stop to consider whether it’s good enough, big or small, recent or a decade ago.
You’re grateful to be alive, to have fresh air to breathe, to have eyes to see, for the sunlight, for your dog, for Netflix so you can watch TV without commercials, for your favorite food, for fun nights out with friends, for your best friend, for your dog, for the color blue because it’s pretty, etc…
Seriously, just go for five minutes, say THANK YOU, and see how high your vibration gets!
4- Quick Meditation
Another quick way to raise your vibration is to take a minute or five to meditate.
By meditate, I don’t mean some long, drawn-out process where you sit all scrunched up on the floor with your fingers in tiny circles.
If you want to go that route and have the time or desire to – fine!
But raising your vibration doesn’t require that at all!
We carry so much stress and tension in our bodies and something as simple as fixing your posture, sitting, or even standing still for sixty seconds and breathing very deeply, slowly and intentionally, is often enough to raise you a few points.
The average breathing rate for most adults is between 12 and 20 breaths per minute.
If you relax your shoulders, fix your posture, and breathe in and out just four to six times in one minute, you’ll feel much, much better.
5- Go Outside
People greatly underestimate the power of nature when it comes to raising your vibration.
If you feel a little low, go outside (weather permitting).
Bonus points if you can physically connect with nature in some way.
Seriously, hug a tree if you can. Dig your feet in some grass. Even placing your hand in a potted plant will help you match the frequency of nature.
At the very least, getting fresh air in your lungs (especially if you breathe deeply like point #4) will help raise your vibration a ton!
6- Repeat Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations can work wonders to raise your vibration in a pinch, as well.
Pick one affirmation that points directly at a pressing issue that may be lowering your vibration at the moment.
For example, if you feel frustrated because of something at work, choose an affirmation like “I feel light and stress-free.”
Repeat that same affirmation over and over until you feel better.
7- Do Something Nice For Someone
If your vibe is low, chances are you may be in your head a bit too much.
Stepping out of yourself and sending positive vibes, attention, and intentions outward to someone else is one of the fastest ways to elevate their vibration – and yours!
Pick something small and genuine and send some good energy out into the world!
Give someone an authentic compliment.
Leave a flirty sticky note for your partner to find later on.
Leave a small amount of money somewhere that someone might randomly find it.
Send a friend a text that will uplift their day.
Random, small acts of kindness are never a bad idea.
Make it a regular practice to be a high-vibe person by just being… nice.
8- Freshen Up Your Appearance
Do you ever notice how when you look great, you automatically tend to feel good, too?
I’m not saying you need to doll up like a supermodel to sit in front of the TV if you’ve got no plans. But there’s something to be said for going the slight extra mile to freshen up your appearance.
Make the outside look appealing, and the inside often follows.
Even something as simple as brushing your teeth, washing with mouthwash, and putting on a fresh coat of lipgloss or lipstick can help elevate your mood.
Make sure your hair is neat. File your nails. Spray your favorite perfume.
A little self-care not only will make you feel great, but it will signal to your subconscious mind that you have something going on and to put positive energy and thoughts out there.
9- Take A Break From Social Media
One thing you can always count on to improve your vibration is to take a break from social media.
Sometimes, sure, social media has its place. It’s entertaining, you keep up with family and friends, and on occasion, when used correctly, you can even learn a thing or two that may improve your life.
But more often than not, do you know what you’re really getting on social media?
Mixed energy. Most of it isn’t positive.
Sure, you’re seeing the best parts of peoples’ lives, but it doesn’t match up to reality.
If you’re already suffering from low vibes, all you’ll do on social media is compare yourself to everyone you see posting, fall victim to advertisements that show you what you’re lacking, get sucked into weird debates or a host of any other off-beat things that serve as distractions from what you should really be focusing on.
At the very least, you’ll wind up mindlessly scrolling through your phone and wasting precious time that you could use to make some of your dreams come true.
If you feel yucky, take a social media detox.
Try one whole day if you can, and fill that time with higher vibrational activities.
10- Have A Hug
Physical contact is so therapeutic. If you have anyone to hug – have at it.
But even if you don’t have someone who will hug you, hug yourself!
It might sound crazy, but it does help.
Think of positive affirmations for a second.
One of the best ways to use positive affirmations is to look at your reflection in the mirror and essentially love on yourself.
Tell yourself how beautiful, intelligent, creative, admirable, loyal, loved, and successful you are every single day and watch how your life transforms.
Wrapping your arms around yourself and giving yourself a big, loving squeeze is like positive affirmations in physical form.
Do you think you should wait for someone outside of you to tell you that you’re beautiful or to show you love?
Don’t get me wrong, self-love isn’t a 100% replacement for external validation, but believe me – if nobody else tells you and shows you every day how incredible you are, you’ll benefit so much from doing it yourself.
Try it and see.
Nobody should love you more than you do!
11- Allow Limited Negativity
Though I enjoy “love and light” as much as the next person and wish it could be that all the time, it’s just not reality.
Sometimes life really does suck, and there are plenty of valid reasons to feel down in the dumps.
You must allow yourself to feel so you can heal, boo!
You’re not doing yourself any favors by trying to cover up a rough patch in life with fake positivity (been there, done that).
The trick is to allow space for yourself to feel and process the low-vibes but put a cap on it.
I’m a huge fan of allowing negative emotions to process – but only for a limited time.
I like to set a timer for 10-15 minutes and write all the worst things I think and feel.
Or when life was really bad for me just after first embarking down my spiritual path, I’d take a pillow to my car, lock myself inside and scream into it as loud as I could.
Keeping negativity inside is so toxic – you have to let it out!
The thing about the timer that’s so effective is that once that timer goes off? It’s time to pull yourself out of the dumps.
You can go there, but you can’t stay there.
So if you want to cry and sulk over how lame things are? Have at it.
Make time and space to do this every single day if you must.
Even if you’re really struggling and need to do it multiple times a day, you can!
By putting a cap on the time, though, you’re taking back your power over the negativity.
You’re putting yourself in the driver’s seat. And that sense of control will enable you to release it in a constructive, intentional way, then focus on elevating your mood.
It’s authentic and effective.
