“Shifting your energy” means moving to a high frequency, from a lower vibration to a higher one. A lower vibration can be painful, confusing or a cluster of circular thoughts that lead to nowhere. In every person, a place of inner guidance exists. By opening the gate to the inner self, we can find sanctuary and inner peace.

Human beings learn by forgetting and remembering, like a two-step dance on a path that moves right and left, until we remember that the center lies in the heart. Then we remember the central path, the One Path that all of us walk. The Navaho called it “The Beauty Way.”

Here are a few techniques to help in shifting into all that is true and beautiful about you:

1) Begin by noticing the pattern of thoughts. What is the difficulty? Is it familiar or is it new? Find the beginning and the end thought of the pattern of thought and feelings. How do they travel around in you? When the first or last thought surfaces, remember that it is only a thought or feeling. It will pass and return. Observe and accept the thought and feeling when they return.

2) When the feeling or thought passes, remember that you have often had very different feelings in your life. You have probably felt elated, happy, prosperous or healthy in the past. Remember who you were. Remember the times that you had answers. (You ignite energies that will move toward a larger answer when your energy is focused on more positive times.)

3) Disconnect from collective consciousness. Consciousness, as a whole, reflects and amplifies negative thinking. Avoid the news and outside stimuli. Watch videos or read books that are uplifting.

4) Meditate whenever possible, even for a few moments. Meditation is a practice of connecting with the Universe as a statement of Oneness. It creates wholeness within.

5) Note that old patterns or change can cause repetitive thoughts or lowered energy levels. If you are honest, it is clear that the same thoughts are repeated many times each day. Make a practice of choosing your thoughts whenever possible.

6) When experiencing a lower state of consciousness, it can be helpful to raise self-confidence by expressing love for the self. If this seems difficult, then radiate love (pink light) to the inner self, which will respond with a corresponding wave.

7) Create an image of resolution. Notice that lower emotions, such as anxiety, fear or pain, disappear in that image. You will not feel the lower emotions when resolution comes.

8) Work with color, sound and exercise. Choose a color to send to your problem or feelings because energy responds to energy, and sacred sounds, such as Hindu chanting, also help. Exercise opens the body so that energy flows and accumulates. (It’s common not to have a lot of energy when experiencing a problem or doubt.)

9) Low states of energy are often associated with other people or places. It simply means that you are resonating with their emotions, as opposed to the inner self. Ask that any attachments or energy links are broken. Bless yourself and the other person.

10) Remember that it is a journey. Sometimes, the road is rocky or the mountain is steep. Other times, we drink from the stream of fulfillment or sleep in the verdant valleys. The journey is always good, even if it does not always feel that way. And we are always learning how to hold a higher vibration so that life becomes more beautiful.
