Many spiritual authors and teachers talk about raising your vibration and your radiance in the eyes of Spirit. I’ve heard both teachers and readers say that God does not judge you; he just looks at your radiance. What we call “sins”, actually lower our vibration and energy, thus making us less visible to God. However, we are not the same person that we were when we committed those sins, if we then make the effort to improve our lives. My pastor said that for Lent, maybe Catholics should give up guilt. That way we can truly enjoy the joy of Easter. After all, we are all children of Spirit, who wants us to have happy joyful lives. Enjoying music, art, and nature, and expressing gratitude for all that we have, will lift us higher.
Jesus said that the two greatest commandments are to love God above all else, and to love your neighbor as yourself. The key word is “love” and it is the key to the path of higher consciousness. You don’t love your neighbor because you will get good karmic points; you do it because you sincerely see the goodness in that person.
Serving others will not only increase your radiance in the eyes of Spirit, but it will teach you to experience the love that Jesus and other ascended masters have for us. So doing acts of kindness, helping those in need, and accepting those with different opinions, will raise our vibration to a much a higher level.
Another way to raise your vibration is to start vibrating. The way to do that is through sound vibrations. Spiritual instructors will give their students mantras to chant while meditating. There are also many mantras that you can chant, that invoke Spirit for certain intentions. When I took a class on higher consciousness, one of the topics was on chanting “Om” which is pronounced “Aum”. It is often said at the beginning, and at the end of Yoga classes. My wife told me that she knew that I was chanting “Om”, because the condo was vibrating. A student in the class said that her boyfriend had to leave her house when she was chanting, because the staircase in her house was really vibrating. You can feel the vibration in your voice, and know that Spirit is there in the vibration. When you stop and sit in silence for a few minutes afterwards, you can also hear a real high frequency. This is not to be confused tinnitus, which is ringing in the ears. It is barely audible, but you can definitely hear it. I read that some consider this to be the frequency of God. I feel that there is no better way to honor God than by chanting his name. It is probably one of the most powerful things that you can do.
Not only will chanting relieve stress, and help your blood pressure go down, but you will also notice that your overall health will begin to improve. Your will also notice that things will start going your way. Abundance and manifestation become easier. Your psychic intuition becomes clearer and life becomes more joyful. Eventually you will be able to communicate with your higher guides and angels. All of this happens because your radiance is now a lot more visible to God.
