VIBRATE HIGHER – Shift Happens



Seventeen hours into Yoga Six’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. No turning back. This is it. This shift is happening…

We have learned much in this opening weekend. One lesson – that of energy vibrations – I must share.

Science has shown that everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Things that look solid are really made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum level. When you look at an object through a high-powered microscope and view its smallest components: molecules, atoms, neutrons, electrons and quanta (the smallest particles measurable), it is mostly empty space interspersed with energy. This includes us.

Our overall state of being is our vibration. From a scientific and metaphysical perspective, we are a being made up of different energy levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Each of these levels has its vibrational frequency, which combine to create your overall vibration of being. And it is these vibrations that attract others with similar vibrations. Thus, as one might imagine, yoga teacher training rooms are bubbling with inquisitive energy. I’m surrounded by frequencies of people who chose this study. This is a good space. This is where we each will find love, healing, acceptance, and inquiry.

Here’s a simple experiment you might try to test the power of your vibration in the world. Spend a day making eye contact and smiling at absolutely everyone you see. Everyone. Your neighbor, the trash hauler, the front desk clerk, cashier, patrons and staff at a restaurant. Everyone you encounter. See and Smile. Next, spend a day not making eye contact with others. Don’t smile at them. Don’t even look at anyone. Stay in your bubble, don’t share, and don’t respond. Then see how different you feel at the end of each day. Which feelings you prefer. You likely don’t even have to do this experiment to know.

The concept of sharing positive energy versus negative is relatively easy to grasp. For extremely tangible, astounding evidence of the power of our words and thoughts, look up Dr. Emoto’s experiments on water. We learned in YTT about this man’s incredible studies on the effects of positive and negative energy on water crystals.

In his various books, the first of which was published in 1999, Dr. Emoto, outlined his experiments used to discover how water reflects the consciousness of the being surrounding it. In his study, bottles of water were set under either a positive or a negative influence of both written and verbalized words. The experiments were done in various languages and all produced the same results. The bottles of water were wrapped with written notes, with the writing facing inside the bottle stating, “thank you”. When frozen these complete crystals were beautiful to behold. Water over which a priest prayed with love and gratitude, created the same type of crystals. Conversely, unpleasant, incomplete, and malformed crystals were created in water exposed to people saying or writing, “You fool,” or other negative expressions. Our thoughts and words are so powerful. Consider that the average human body is 70% water, and the studies he performed clearly indicate how much we can influence others with thoughts and words.

So, if you are looking to accomplish some big shift in your life, try fully believing in your vibrational impact. Here are some ways we collected online. Let us know if you’ve found others by emailing me: We’d love to share your story.

Ways you can positively influence your vibration:

  • Become conscious of your thoughts.
  • Find something beautiful and appreciate it.
  • Laugh more, even at yourself.
  • Be conscious of the foods you eat.
  • Drink water.
  • Meditate.
  • Be grateful. Create gratitude lists.
  • Practice acts of kindness.
  • Surround yourself with positive people.
