Are you a high-vibe friend? Or do you do tend to lean a little negative? Maybe you get hooked in the latest gossip or you have a hard time complimenting others.
Here’s the deal: Either way it’s okay. We all get stuck in a low-vibe BADitude from time to time. But with a few simple shifts we can redirect our energy and bring much more positivity to our friendships and our life.
It’s SO much fun to be a high-vibe, good friend. When you bring forth your awesomeness and elevate others you’ll feel energized and empowered. Being a high-vibe friend is a benefit to everyone, including you.
3 ways to be a high-vibe friend
Watch this video for my top tips to ditch the funky stuff and become a high-vibe friend!
Step 1: Redirect the conversation
If you see your friends going down the road of negativity, saying things like “I can’t,” or “I don’t want to,” or gossiping, change the conversation. Redirect.
- Start talking about what you do have.
- Talk about all that you’re grateful for.
- Talk about the good things that are going on in your lives.
- Compliment the other person. Point out something that’s great about them!
Immediately, your energy can elevate that connection and redirect the entire conversation. You can also use spiritual techniques to protect your energy and avoid taking on low-vibe energy.
Step 2: Show up with a high vibe
If you come to the party with all your greatness, you immediately elevate everyone and you start to clear the path for them. If you show up with your highest intentions and bring your high vibes to the table, people will feel that vibration and they’ll follow you.
My hope is that you can be that light force when you walk in the room and start to clear the path for others to change direction. Your energy has far more power than you can imagine. For tips on how to shift your energy, learn how vibes speak louder than words.
Step 3: Remember you can always choose again
Just today when my videographer, Brittany, showed up, I was in a low-vibe place, freaking out about some family chaos and feeling like crap. So I made a decision in my mind, “I need to choose again. We have work to do. We’re shooting videos. I’m going to choose again.”
Setting that intention invites in a power greater than yourself to lift you out of that low-vibe place and restore happiness and well-being. (Plus, check out my 3 tips to get out of bad mood fast.)
Enjoy being the high-vibe friend! Your energetic shift has a ripple effect and lifts up everyone around you.
