Positive Energy & Ways to Raise Positive Energy

Real vampires love Vampire Rave.

Most people either do not know or understand that we are powered by an energy field that permeates our energy bodies, including every cell of our body and mind. All things, animate and inanimate, have an energy field. Although energy isn’t something you can see, it’s not necessarily an otherworldly concept either. Your body is a living energy field. The “subtle energy” can be felt inches or feet from the body, though it’s invisible. It has an enormous impact on how you are perceived, who and what you are drawn to, and who and what is attracted to you. Our energy not only impacts those around us, but it also affects us. It’s something that is created with everything that you do or do not do. It is something that is generated as you do your day-to-day activities. While you may or may not be consciously aware of different energies, it can be beneficial to focus on how others respond to you, and if necessary, re-evaluate what type of energy you are projecting. Further, understanding how people affect you allows you to better match up with people of similar energies and avoid those who project energy that negatively affects you.

We are all exposed, every day, to two forces or energies, a positive force and a negative force. The positive force or energy is productive and enhances the quality of our lives. It can boost our feelings of well-being, dissolve anxiety, and even improve communication. People with positive energy tend to be very present in their lives, radiating their beautiful energy in everything they do. People intuitively feel safe, happy, and relaxed around them. Their energy is welcoming and warm. People flock to those who radiate positive energy and they are generally found surrounded by numerous people and animals. Generosity, kindness, empathy, calmness, optimism, and enthusiasm are traits of those who glow with positive energy. These people possess a unique quality; they are magnetic in a quiet sense. They are also often funny while diametrically being profoundly at peace. They enjoy repleteness, contentment, delight—a calm, abiding joy regardless of external circumstances. This state is called Sukha; it is selfless in nature and connected to a greater purpose, which is why it increases through service to others. Pure positive energy arises from genuine integrity; what would you do with the found $20 bill if no one was looking? Would you pocket it, or would you attempt to find its owner? Next, pure positive energy has a component of selflessness, a lack of concern with status, fame, and ego. People possessing this component tend to have transparency between their personal and public lives. This transparency sets them apart from those with charisma, who are often one thing on the outside and another under the surface. Third, this expansive, compassionate energy nurtures others. Finally, people in this state have extraordinary powers of attentiveness and give you the feeling of being seen in the round, wholly acknowledged, and embraced by someone with open eyes.

Positive energy is second nature to some people, while others who desire to be positive must work harder to cultivate a positive outlook on life. Your energy is a combination of your past, mindset, dominant thoughts, and perception of the world. Still, it is up to you to take responsibility for the present moment and, if needed, work on shifting your energy. Retraining your thinking and changing the energy you exude takes practice and patience. We find ourselves in an ongoing struggle with our anger, greed, and fear. We lose sight that we are all interrelated and that connection is central to tapping into a spiritual wellspring. Even though our greatest happiness comes from feeling an eternal connection with the spiritual energy of the universe, there is a tendency for us to close off from this energy. Those who counteract the tendency through practices such as meditation deepen their sense of belonging and free this latent energy. Focusing on gratitude enhances the feeling of positive energy.

The first step to harnessing positive energy is to recognize any negative thought patterns. The second step is to forgive yourself for those negative thoughts and refuse to pass judgment or negatively label those thoughts. When I catch myself thinking negatively, especially in meditation or quiet times, I note it “thought” and release it. You have made great strides when you can acknowledge a negative thought and either dismiss it or turn it into a positive one. Other ways to increase your positive energy include surrounding yourself with positive people. Do not forget to dream about travel, relationships, fitness goals, and anything else you would like to achieve. When you are dreaming, leave out any barriers that might prevent you from your dreams. Positivity can also be cultivated by clearly stating your intentions to the universe several times per day. Positivity is garnered by forgiveness, true forgiveness of yourself and others. Positivity is developed when you move on quickly from negative experiences by focusing on any positive lessons learned and by noting the things for which you are grateful. Further, positivity grows when you take care of your body by eating cleanly and exercising. Another key to harnessing positive energy is believing that you already possess the things you want in your life. For example, “I believe that I exude positive energy, that I have a positive outlook on life, and that I am a positive person.” Lastly, positive energy flourishes when you do your best to live in the moment by focusing on what is happening now and stopping limiting thoughts in their tracks.

Although your thought life is essential to obtaining and maintaining positive energy, you must genuinely learn to cultivate anticipation of good (i.e., happiness, health, and success). You must sincerely believe that all things — situations, obstacles, and difficulties — will work out favorably in the end. Some things that you can do to assist in this process are: to spend time in nature, being present in the moment, and focusing on your environment; performing random acts of kindness; being grateful for where you are and what you have been blessed with; taking a mental and physical break as exhaustion is one of the quickest ways to deplete positive energy reserves; laughing; breathing deeply; refusing to dwell on negative things that happen; engaging in positive self-talk; sharing worries with a friend or family member; journaling; celebrating small wins; meditating; employing mindfulness in your daily life; and practicing yoga.

Meditation is a great way to tap into the universe’s positive energy. Meditation effectively pulls the rug out from under low vibrational emotions like anger, despair, shame, fear, and regret while naturally clearing the way for the highest resonating emotional states: gratitude, joy, love, and hope. The inner calm and stillness of mind brought about by meditation shifts your vibration to a higher frequency, making you a permanent magnet for positive experiences and setting your life on the highest and best possible course. The advanced mindfulness and depth of thought achieved through meditation helps you recognize that the universe is indeed built on polarity; without bad, there is no good. We live in a world of light and dark, yin and yang. Meditation helps you both see and understand that the difficulties you face in your life are steps leading to higher levels of being. The darkness in your life only brightens your light.

Your body has a cobweb-like auric field, which traps all kinds of energy, predominantly negative. In time, if weighed down with enough stress, worry, and fear, your energy field can become clogged and energy blockages take root. During meditation, you tap into the quantum source field, which permeates everyone and everything. During each meditation session, the divine energy of the highest order envelopes your auric field, quickly and efficiently clearing and balancing any blocks contained within. Meditation allows you to begin living a life filled with positive energy by erasing the backlogged, multi-layered years of fear, doubt, insecurity, guilt, and anger. This allows you to substitute negative thought patterns for positive ones, restoring a childlike, “in the moment,” contentedness. Meditation strips your mind down to the core, helping you release anxiety and understand that your fears aren’t reality– fear is a liar!

Practices such as yoga will also help you release stress and anxiety and get rid of negative energy. Yoga offers an excellent opportunity to enter flow, the state of being fully engaged and present in the moment with no attention paid to the time passing. It perfectly balances the physical with the mental. It is an exercise for the body and mind. And it is one of the best ways to enhance positive emotions like joy and happiness. Focus on the poses meant to increase positive energy such as cat-cow, warrior, goddess, and happy baby. When you enter a pose, meditate on it. Focus the mind on it. This stretches and conditions both the mind and the body. Yoga also teaches us breath control which helps to relieve anxiety, increase energy, improve focus, and fight insomnia.

There are no specific yoga asanas or techniques that could render positive thinking. It is a synergic outcome of the five principles of yoga – asanas, pranayamas, relaxation, meditating, and the proper diet. These work with your thoughts, healing you in the process. When the body and mind work in a synchronized fashion, the outcome is bound to be positive.

There are five primary yogic principles for positive thinking. The first principle is yoga asanas. In simple words, asanas are exercise poses. Any form of exercise is known to improve your circulation, leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated by triggering the release of ‘positive’ hormones. The yoga poses stretch, stimulate, and strengthen your body, rendering it an extraordinary level of flexibility. It unblocks the seven chakras of your body – Mooladhara, Swadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara. It helps in thwarting negative thoughts, igniting positive thinking. The second principle is Pranayama. Do you know how you breathe? Is your breathing correct? The answer is no. Most of us do this wrong. Worry not, my friend! Yogic breathing or Pranayama helps us breathe the right way and creates an awareness about the breathing pattern. Rhythmic breathing learned via assorted patterns allows better absorption of oxygen. This paves the way for a better-detoxified body. The fewer toxins in the body, the more refreshed and rejuvenated you will be. This creates more space for positive thoughts. The third principle is relaxation. Practicing asanas and proper breathing will help dispel stress and anxiety, two of the most potent triggers of negative thoughts. You can easily experience the clutter of your mind draining away while energy surges into those tired muscles and refreshes you. A stress-free body creates space for a relaxed mind. This, in turn, expels the negative thought process. The fourth principle is meditation, which we have covered a little more in-depth above. If you know yourself thoroughly, then you will have less space for negative thoughts? There was a time when people used to leave the physical aspects of life behind and find peace by meditation. Sages used mediation as a powerful technique to create self-awareness. You, too, can make use of this vital yoga doctrine to introduce your brain to positive thinking. Close your eyes and breathe right. Forget everything else except your breath. In a few days, you will understand yourself. Regularly practicing Yoga Nidra and Antar Mouna will help alter your thinking process to be more positive naturally. The fifth principle is eating the proper diet. What exactly does a clean diet mean in yoga? Yoga practitioners believe that what you eat impacts your mind in the same way it affects your body. Adhering strictly to a diet packed with fresh, wholesome foods, including vegetables and fruits, helps you keep fresh, physically as well as psychologically. A pure mind always thinks positively. Doing your best to eat in moderation, chew food correctly, eat slowly, eat with concentration, and adhere to your meal timing are other ways to adjust your diet without making too many drastic changes.

Crystals can also help you maintain positive energy while warding off the negative. Crystals could be a whole page, in and of themselves, but I will only briefly speak about them here. As I adore bright, shiny, sparkly things, I have always been personally drawn to rocks and crystals. From a very early age, I had rock collections and would spend hours digging up the yard trying to find cool rocks. I constantly spent my museum time in the rocks, minerals, and crystals room. It wasn’t until college that I discovered that rocks and crystals called to me because of their earth-related energy. Crystals are structured so that they respond to the inputs of all different energies around them. They oscillate, emitting specific vibratory frequencies. When worn, the energies of the stones interact with the human electromagnetic field to bring about energetic changes. Crystal cleansing is necessary because it removes any dense or stale energy the crystal may have picked up in its environment or from you. Here is a list of some good crystals to have, especially if you are starting with crystal work. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive and obtaining a book about crystals or spending a few hours on trusted internet sites will help you determine which crystals you need in your arsenal.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Moonlight~ The moon can cleanse crystals on a deep energetic level. The full moon will bring an energy of release whereas a new moon offers an energy of growth. Place your crystals on your windowsill just before going to bed and leave them there overnight. This gives ample time for your gem to soak up all that lush light. Even if you can’t do it for the whole night, a few hours will also work wonders. As long as I am certain it is not going to rain, on the full moon especially, I will place my crystals outside on the earth for cleansing. I find this gives them wonderful vibrations.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Eclipses~ An eclipse can be a fantastic, refreshing, cleansing, energetic force. Eclipses are the perfect opportunity to recharge crystals with a whole new energy, whether it’s a solar eclipse or a lunar eclipse. Dramatic shifts can happen during this natural phenomenon. The lunar eclipse is closely connected to significant internal changes, whereas the solar eclipse speaks of external changes to your life’s makeup. An eclipse is an unsurpassable opportunity for those who are stuck in stagnant energy. At the next solar or lunar eclipse, leave your gems on a windowsill, balcony, or safe outside space where they can drink in all that luminous light. Ensure that your treasures will not be damaged by sunlight if you opt for the solar eclipse charge. Direct sunlight can make certain gems fade and even those warm sun-colored stones shouldn’t be left in direct light too long. Clear Quartz is a wonderful gem for both of these cleansing and charging practices.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Saltwater~ Before getting started, ensure that your crystals can be placed in saltwater. Certain crystals are far too soft and might dissolve or be damaged by submersion in saltwater. Cleanse crystals using saltwater by ensuring the crystals are entirely submerged for several hours or even as long as the whole day. Always make sure to pat dry properly when you remove your stones from the water. As stated above, be aware that not all crystals are in love with water. While rocks like Amethyst and Quartz are fine in water, thanks to their hardier nature, softer and more porous stones like Selenite, Lepidolite, Malachite, and Angelite should not get wet.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Smudging~ Sage is the most popular choice for smudging as it possesses many healing properties. When smudging your stones, make sure you are outdoors or are near an open window so that bad energy has a place to go. Use bundled sage sticks for the best and cleanest results. Light the tip of your sage stick in one hand, hold the crystal in your other hand, and wave the sage over the stone so the smoke can surround the stone for at least 30 seconds. Voila! Your crystal is now cleansed. One of the best things about the smudging method for cleansing your crystals is that it can be done with any crystal, especially Pyrite, where you wish to maintain the stone's glittering luster.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Sunlight~ To cleanse crystals using this method, simply wait for a beautiful sunny day or a day with a clear sky and set your stone outside to warm. Instantly charged with solar energy, there’s nothing more satisfying than holding a sunbaked stone in your hand and experiencing that joy transfer to the depths of your soul. While sunlight can be an excellent way to cleanse your gem, not all stones are made for encountering direct sunlight. Some crystals will fade and lose their vibrancy if left in direct sunlight. Remember that it is the best practice not to leave any stone sitting in direct sunlight for too long. Darker stones such as Hematite and red and orange rocks like Carnelian tend to work best in sunlight. Stones that should avoid the sun include Ametrine, Aquamarine, Amethyst, Calcite, Beryl, and Citrine.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Sound~ Sound is another safe-for-all-stones way to cleanse your crystals. Fast and effective, this is also a savvy method for those with a whole heap of crystals that would take forever to cleanse and charge individually. Whether you use chanting, tuning forks, or the sweet pitch of a singing bowl or bells, all that matters is that the sound can reach a vibration that encompasses the stones. You can use this method for any crystal and the sound bath doesn’t need to take longer than five minutes.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Larger Stones~ Geodes and slabs can be another great way of cleansing your smaller crystals. Using large stones for charging is a pure and fuss-free way of letting your gems heal each other and share energy. Quartz and Selenite are exceptionally well-versed when it comes to cleansing other crystals. Clear Quartz is the master healer and Selenite is an excellent toxic vibe remover. To use larger geodes, clusters, and slabs to clean your other crystals, you can simply rest the little gems on top of the larger stones. You can also place the rocks in a soft and protective bag together or rest them on a plate side by side. It is best to allow the stones six or more hours to mingle with each other's energy. When I use this method for cleansing, I generally leave the stones together for 24 hours, if possible.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. Burying~ To utilize this method, find a safe and sacred spot for burying your gem; maybe it’s a place that seems special to you, beneath the boughs of a favorite tree, or even in your garden. Bury them in the soil (only a few inches deep is necessary) and then cover them with the soil you disturbed. Leave crystals buried in the Earth for a minimum of 24 hours for up to three days. Stones that adore earth cleansing include Tigers Eye, Citrine, Carnelian, Jasper, Calcite, and Agate.

Real vampires love Vampire Rave. A final note~ Some people feel it is necessary to activate freshly cleansed crystals. You can activate crystals by taking the time to set an intention for your stone. Setting an intention can help you connect with its energy and restore your sense of purpose. You may feel comfortable holding the stone in your hand as you meditate or placing it on your third eye. You can also allow the stone to rest on the corresponding chakra or area of the body. Additionally, you can activate your crystal by placing it in an energy grid with other, more energetic crystals. Lastly, you can activate crystals through the use of positive affirmations. I typically will active a crystal through setting an intention and meditation. I find that this is the most effective method for my personality and the crystals that I own.

I am proud that I am a Christian and that I believe Jesus is my savior. I am also not one to force my beliefs on other people. I think that people will come to know Jesus if I am a genuine example of what it means to be a Christian. As simply as I can state a complex principle, I believe I have been called to bring the ethics of God’s kingdom of heaven to earth to establish justice, mercy, and peace. Being a Christian is not about keeping rules and regulations, performing rituals, or going to church. It’s about a friendship - a friendship with Jesus Christ. Jesus said that knowing him is the doorway to a special relationship with God. That friendship and love creates a deep desire within to be a light to the world. What being a light to the world means to me is shining where it is dark, which involves, among other things, loving others unconditionally as God loves us, practicing the art of forgiveness, seeking justice for the oppressed, feeding the hungry, and clothing the naked. To do these things effectively and reach the most people, one must possess positive energy. If you are not positive, how can you be a beacon of positivity and hope to others?

You may consider it odd to find a section on prayer within the midst of a discussion about positive and negative energy, especially on a vampire website. However, every prayer, thought, word, or deed involves a flow of energy. This energy has the power to lift us, heal us, comfort us, and inspire us.

One of the best ways to build good energy and find peace is through prayer and meditation, which are essential spiritual disciplines for all believers. We have discussed Eastern meditation above. Although there are many similarities between Eastern meditation and Christian meditation, the difference is the goal behind each practice. In Eastern meditation, the goal is to empty one’s mind with the intention to connect with essential nature. Christian mediation has the purpose of filling one’s mind with Scripture with the intent to connect with God.

There is significant power in thoughts and prayers. Every thought produces a vibration. The energy of the vibration produced increases as the intensity of the thought increases. These vibrations have power. They can change their surroundings and ultimately make the world a much better place.

Have you noticed that when you enter a room where there has been a fight or argument, you can “sense” the tension in the air? Have you ever been in a place where you have had an eerie or uncomfortable feeling? We have all felt this some time or the other. It is natural for us to be able to sense vibrations. Similarly, I am sure there have been times when you have gone to a holy place where many come to pray or meditate and felt a powerful feeling of love, peace, serenity, and safety. This is evidence that the ripples or vibrations produced by thought and intense awareness impact their surroundings and produce vibrations that are absorbed in the place over time. The place then retains the energy of the vibrations. Thought is powerful and so are its byproducts, words and deeds. A kind word can and does have a powerful impact on its recipient. Words filled with love, kindness, and compassion can create powerful vibrations of goodness that can change the way people think.

Thoughts are a form of energy and prayer is a form of communication with the infinite source of all power, God, through our thoughts. Thoughts are like seeds that require nourishment to grow into fruit-bearing trees. The nourishment of thoughts is in the form of affirmation, concentration, and attention. Prayer need not necessarily involve the usage of pious phrases. Simply talking to God informally is prayer. Imagine a heart-to-heart conversation with someone, but that someone isn’t just anyone, it is God. You do not have to do anything ceremonious; open your heart and mind and start talking. He will hear you and be with you.

Prayer not only raises positive energy, but it can also calm your nervous system, shutting down your fight or flight response. It can make you less reactive to negative emotions and less angry. Prayer lets you put down your burden mentally for a bit and rest. Prayer can also foster a sense of connection—with a higher power, your environment, and other people. Prayer and positive thinking are also beneficial techniques in creating a more confident and success-filled life. Thoughts of success often attract success. Thoughts of failure often attract failure. Energy is like a magnet. It attracts. Positive energy attracts positive results. But a word of caution, it is best to approach prayer with gratitude for what God has done for you, not out of the need for specific results. I am not saying that you cannot and should not ask God for things; the opposite is true. God is a Good Father and wants to provide for His children. I am saying that it is essential to go to God for the right reasons; you desire to talk with Him, fellowship with Him, delight in Him, and grow your relationship with Him. If you do these things first, your blessings will be many.

Music is one of the quickest ways to raise your vibration and your positive energy. Sound has a powerful effect on humans as music is quite literally vibrations. Listening to certain beats will help you to raise your energy.

Studies prove that music can change your mood. For centuries, music has been used therapeutically to help boost mood and to relieve anxiety and stress. Research has shown that music can have positive physical effects. Brain wave activity changes when you are listening to music. A strong beat stimulates brain waves to resonate in sync with the rhythm, bringing sharper concentration and more alert thinking. A slower tempo promotes a calm, meditative state. Breathing and heart rate can both be altered by music. This can mean slower breathing, a slower heart rate, and activation of the relaxation response. This is why music can be an excellent preventative against the damaging effects of chronic stress by promoting relaxation and good health. Music can help keep depression and anxiety at bay by bringing a more positive state of mind. It can also encourage higher levels of optimism and creativity. This brings many other benefits, such as boosting immunity, easing muscle tension, and lowering blood pressure. I don’t know about you, but listening to my favorite music never fails to make me feel good. When I’m feeling good, my vibration increases and I emit positive energy.

Music can have a powerful influence on your heart rate, breathing, emotions, and brainpower. Certain kinds of music are created solely to affect your brain waves. Because of music’s profound effect on your body and psyche, it is an excellent way to raise your vibration. Listening to music that positively resonates with you can shift your mood, helping you to release negative thought patterns and raise your vibration. Whether you are listening to music, playing an instrument, or singing, it all works to uplift you to a positive, high vibrational place if you are enjoying it. Positive lyrics are a plus but not always necessary.

It is best to refrain from listening to music that does not positively affect you because it can lower your vibrations. If the music resonates with you and makes you feel good, you will be in a higher vibrational place.

Music can be used for relaxation, meditation, or helping to create a positive focus. Music promotes relaxation of tense muscles, helping dissolve stress, and enabling you to release some of the tension from a stressful day. Music can help you get into a zone when practicing yoga, self-hypnosis, guided imagery, or praying. Music, especially upbeat tunes, can help you feel more optimistic, taking your mind off your stressors. Affirming lyrics can help you create more positive self-talk, surround you with positive energy, and help you to look on the bright side.

With cell phones and music streaming services, one of the great things about using music to raise positive energy is that it is available 24/7.
