How to get rich:
Treadmill + Music on headphones + Chess on Dr Wolf app is a fantastic combo! Time flies. For steady walking. Not for running or hiit, for me.
If I could only do one thing today, I would meditate.
If I could only do two things today, I would meditate and count my blessings.
If I could only do three things today, I would meditate, count my blessings, and exercise.
The purpose of meditation is to raise my vibration. The purpose of counting my blessings (appreciation) is to raise my vibration. The purpose of exercise is to raise my vibration!
I work on raising my vibration first, and then I do everything else.
These are the basic teachings of Abraham Hicks as I apply it. “Get in the vortex first” and then do anything else I have time for.
The vortex is the first four levels of Abraham’s emotional guidance scale.
1. Love, Joy, Appreciation, Empowered, Freedom, Knowledge
3. Eagerness, Enthusiasm, Happiness
4. Positive Expectation, Belief
That is the vortex. Get in there. That is the primary goal today.
Said another way, feel happy first and then do everything you have to do. Feel gratitude first. Feel thankful first. Feel joyful first. Feel love first.
Meditation and Counting Positives (Appreciation) are the super effective and efficient ways to raise vibration.
Moving my body for a set period of time (exercise) while listening to music that I love also makes me feel great! Gets the blood pumping, oxygenates my body, releases stress, improves strength, improves flexibility, improves endurance, improves balance, and releases feel good chemicals. Music that I love also lifts my spirits and releases feel good chemicals!
So easy. So simple. So effective!
Raise vibration first, stabilize there, and then talk to people, work, do tasks, drive, make phone calls, and so on.
From a high vibration, I am connected to Source. My intuition and guidance are much clearer. I am more attractive. More effective. More charming. More convincing. More lovable. More kind. More compassionate. I am of more benefit to myself and others when I am at a high vibration.
Emotions and Vibration are interchangeable as words. Emotions indicate my current vibration. It is an easy way to recognize my current vibration by paying attention to how I feel emotionally.
Raising and sustaining high vibrations is a daily and consistent task. It is like flying or surfing.
When my vibration lowers, my emotion becomes more negative.
Anything below #7, I must recognize and replenish myself.
Starting at Boredom, I have now entered lower vibration. When I am sensitive to how I feel, I recognize this immediately and do something about it.
There is momentum to vibration. Law of attraction is responding to vibration. This is like an elevator. My goal is to go up, not down.
The elevator can go down all the way to the bottom.
22. Fear, Grief, Depression, Despair, Powerlessness.
Lucky for us, when we sleep, it is a reset. But we must actively raise our vibration. It rarely happens automatically.
We must actively be positive. We must actively think good thoughts. We must purposefully train our mind to think only good thoughts. This is a practice and an art and a science.
Meditate. Count positives. And exercise while listening to music. Repeat everyday for 30 days and life will change dramatically. Repeat for 6 months and you will not recognize who you were before. And then repeat for a lifetime!
Every single day, meditate no matter what. I reserve a minimum of one hour for meditation, more if I need it. TM and a guided Mindfulness Meditation by Jon Kabat-Zinn are my go-tos.
Counting positives means sitting down and writing positive qualities in any person, place, think, or topic. Any memory, something in the present, or imaginary. I could do this in my mind but I find it is more effective when I sit down, set a timer for 60 mins, and write what comes to mind. I may pair this activity with music or content that I love.
I can also think, write, or speak positive affirmations too. “I am” affirmations or other ones that come to my mind.
This is what is meant by Philippians 4:8-9 (The Message Translation). Fill your mind with thoughts of noble, true, beautiful, authentic, gracious, best things.
Exercise for me started out as a minimum of 20 minutes a day of enjoyable body movement. Now after 90+ days in a row, it is a minimum of 60 mins a day reserved for working out. I don’t work out for 60 mins straight but I am there to work out as much as I can and don’t leave until 60 mins are done. And I pair exercise with music, motivational talks and videos, and other content that I love. Makes it more enjoyable.
These three habits are my daily vibrational foundation that fuels everything else. It builds positive momentum fast like compound interest or a snowball rolling downhill.
Soon, feeling really good nearly all the time is the norm. That means more happiness, more charm, more charisma, more energy, more attractiveness, more ideas, more enthusiasm, more passion, more joy, more health, and so on.
Feelings translate into material items too. Vibration turns into things. Like vibration attracts like things. High vibration attracts high vibrational manifestations. So being at high vibration is the most important task in my life!
In summary: At any point in my day when I start to feel blah, I will meditate. And then purposefully fill my mind with positive thoughts. I may choose to move my body too. Walk around. Get some fresh air. Listen to good music. I will lift my spirits as soon as it sags. I will continually monitor how I am feeling by being mindful of my emotions.
