I Want to Embrace Positivity and Raise My Vibration


Lately I’ve been thinking that I really want to embrace positivity and “raise my vibration” as they say in spiritual circles. I want to fear life less and feel more secure in who I am. I want to learn how to extend the dedication and loyalty to myself that I so easily give to those closest to me.

I want to focus more on love, peace, hope, joy, and oneness, and focus less on division, anger, despair, and apathy. To be honest, I feel that I’ve somewhat been stuck in a mire of negativity and pessimism since my sister killed herself six years ago. The trauma from that event caused such a raging storm of guilt, confusion, pain, regret, and loss of faith in anything I used to believe in.

I don’t want to undo the last six years, because I feel I have learned a lot and some of the things I have let go of needed to be let go, but I need to learn how to live for myself and my future now. I can’t change the past, but I can shape a better, brighter future.

I want to make a difference in other peoples’ lives too. I want to inspire and encourage others. I want to learn how to trust again.

  2. Omg Maranda, I had no idea. (All the good vibes from all the real hugs I’m squishing myself to give you, hope you feel it, my heart is so heavy right now). But at least by saying the words and putting them out here, you begin the process.
    Little rituals, little totems and tokens and tips and trips. Start off small, secure each thought to some trinket or “talisman” before adding another thingy to your self. Affirmations and confirmations start out well enough but need to be connected to something tangible as “proof” for those times when everything seems shit and you think the good stuff are just lies you tell yourself.
    If that makes sense. I hope it did. You are more amazing than you let yourself think.

  3. This isn’t going to help but I feel like I could have written something like this, about being caught up in negativity and needing to focus on embracing positivity, on turning things around (though obviously I’ve not been through such trauma as you and your family have). It’s possible, and you already inspire and affect people – you touch the lives of everyone that reads your blog, so you’ve already doing it! The downward spiral or being caught on a mouse wheel of negativity is harder, but I think small steps are a good idea. I’ll join you. xx

  4. It takes a lot of strength to go through what you did in the last six years, and this affirmation is the first step in changing everything for yourself in a positive light. Learning to find the positive in everything, and smiling through it all is a great beginning. I hope your journey into raising your vibration is a magical one!

  5. Hi Maranda,
    I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I’m glad to hear, however, that you would like to focus more on the positive elements of your life and filter out the negative things. I believe that pretty much everybody would like to do this to the best of their ability, regardless of where it is that they come from. My blog incorporates positive psychology into its posts, and how it can be implemented in several situations. Even though it has just started, I think that you would find the content really interesting! Feel free to check it out, and I hope that you are able to achieve the goal of positive thinking in your own life!

  6. Really thoughtful post. I’ve found profound progress in the notion of raising my own vibration through practicing mediation and gratitude – perhaps you can find some insight in that. Thanks for sharing Maranda.
