Vibrational Wellness: What is It and Why Does It Matter?
According to Albert Einstein, "everything in life is vibration." And logically, this is true. Everything in the universe is comprised of molecules that are constantly vibrating at different speeds. This includes not just stationary objects, but living and moving things (yes, even you!).
With vibration being ever-present literally everywhere we go, why is vibrational wellness so commonly overlooked? Sure, you've probably heard somebody refer to something/someone giving them "good vibes" or "bad vibes," but vibrational wellness goes far beyond that.
By having a better understanding of what vibrational wellness entails, how it is connected to the seven chakras and spiritual wellness, you can lead a happier and more peaceful life.
What is Vibrational Wellness, Anyway?
Vibrational wellness is complex, so it can be difficult to narrow it down to a single definition. In simplest terms, though, vibrational wellness refers to the level at which your body's molecules are moving at any given point in time. The idea behind the Law of Vibration is that when you are vibrating at higher levels, your mood is improved and you feel more at-ease. On the other hand, lower levels of vibration may lead to feelings of sadness and darkness.
When you're focused on your vibrational energy, you are more in-tune with the energy that you're putting out into the world—as well as the energies you are accepting. As a result, you can better control your body's vibrational patterns to enhance your mood, achieve a sense of peace/calm, and even think more clearly.
Connection to the 7 Chakras
If you've ever attended a yoga or meditation class, you've probably heard the term "chakra" being thrown around. Chakras are thought to be the primary energy centers of the body, with the term literally translating to "wheel" in Sanskrit. There are seven chakras throughout the body as follows:
- root chakra (base of the spine)
- sacral chakra (lower abdomen)
- solar plexus chakra (upper abdomen)
- heart chakra (center of chest)
- throat chakra (throat)
- third-eye chakra (forehead)
- crown chakra (top of head)
What are the 7 chakras? Each chakra is thought to control a different sense or trait. For example, the third-eye chakra is believed to govern a person's sense of intuition, wisdom, and imagination. Meanwhile, the solar plexus chakra is believed to control a person's self-esteem, confidence, and overall self-worth.
So, what does all this have to do with vibrational wellness? We're getting there!
Chakras are thought to function best when they are unblocked and able to work freely. Unfortunately, these energy centers of the body can become blocked by any number of things, including emotional conflict, stress, or even a poor diet. Because even one blocked chakra can have an effect on the rest of your chakras, it's important to keep these in balance as much as possible.
Focusing on vibrational wellness is a great way to keep those chakras open and unblocked so that they can function their best. When you have a better sense of the "vibes" your body is putting off and how to raise your vibration as needed, you can achieve the spiritual and emotional wellness that is key to keeping those chakras open. And this idea actually works both ways—as clear and open chakras can also raise your vibration.
How to Raise Your Vibration/Vibrational Wellness
Now that you can see how vibrational energy, your seven chakras, and your sense of spiritual wellness are all interconnected, you're probably wondering what steps you can take to enhance your own vibrational wellness.
Actually, it's easier than you might think.
One of the most important influencing factors of vibrational energy is your diet and nutrition. A poor diet can lead to blocked chakras, which can prevent your body from putting out the high vibrational energy it needs to function its best.
So, what are some foods you can focus on if raising your vibration is the ultimate goal? Try to stick to nutrient-dense fruits, vegetables, and herbs (bonus points if they're locally grown and organic). These kinds of foods will be absorbed into the body and converted into higher vibrational energy.
Of course, this isn't to say that your entire diet must be made up of organic fruits and vegetables. However, it does mean that it will be more important than ever to be mindful of your intake of processed foods. Raising your vibrational wellness also means protecting your body from toxins, such as those from alcohol. Your body will thank you for it!
What are some other steps you can take to raise your vibrational energy? Consider these ideas:
- practicing meditation and controlled breathing
- finding ways to acknowledge and express gratitude daily
- pushing away negative energy and choosing positive thoughts instead
- getting in-tune with nature (such as going on a walk outside)
- listening to high-tempo music that boosts your mood
Ultimately, achieving high vibration in your everyday life is a practice that will take some trial and error on your part. However, by being more mindful of the vibrations your body is putting out and the chakras that can affect your vibrational energy, you can be proactive about avoiding periods of low vibrational energy (and the bad moods that come along with them). Over time, you'll figure out which rituals work best for you in achieving and maintaining high levels of vibrational energy.
The Bottom Line on Vibrational Wellness
Vibrational wellness is a topic that's simply not covered enough in discussions of spiritual and emotional health. If more people understood the Law of Vibration and how it can directly impact them, perhaps people would also be better equipped to take control of their own happiness.
But now that you understand what vibrational wellness is all about, maybe it's time to focus on daily rituals that will cultivate your own vibrational wellness. From the foods you eat to the thoughts you think, it all matters. And the more you can take action to put out higher levels of vibration into the universe, the more you can live your life in full bloom.
