Our energy has far more power than we can even imagine.
When we function from a fearful, low-level energetic state, our vibes can literally pollute the world. But when we function from a place of positive energy, the world around us becomes more positive. Fear cannot coexist with love.
Therefore, we must learn how to dissolve all boundaries with love by taking responsibility for our own energy.

Raising your energetic vibration is a major theme in my upcoming book Super Attractor (coming out September 2019), so I decided to update this post with more content and further clarity.
You can raise your energetic vibration
Your energy is your greatest source of power. When you vibrate a high-vibe, loving energy, you will receive that energy reflected back to you. But when you vibrate at a low level, you become an energetic match for people and situations that are also vibrating at that level.
Therefore, your power lies in your ability to change your energy at any time. It might sound heady at first, but changing your energetic vibration is easier than you might think.
Ready to raise your vibration? You can watch the video below, which I recorded in 2015 for this original blog post. You can also keep reading for a breakdown of the steps, plus new resources.
Do you pay attention to your energetic vibration?
Countless people have come to me with some variation of what is essentially the same problem: The people they interact with in certain situations don’t respond to them the way they want or expect.
Many people have told me things like, “Guys never call me back. I go on all these first dates and they never call back. What’s happening?” I also hear questions such as, “I’m looking for a new job but I keep getting rejected, even though I’m qualified and prepared for the interview.”
They’re frustrated and stuck in the experience of being turned down time and time again.
Your energy is what matters most
When people reach out to me with these questions, first and foremost my intention is to help them see how their vibes are speaking louder than their words. The reason everything keeps falling flat is that their energy isn’t sustaining the experience.
You can look the right way and say the right things, but if your energy doesn’t reflect your amazingness, then it won’t matter. We know that our words and actions affect other people. But often we don’t realize how much our energy affects them, too.
Ready to raise your vibes? The tips I share below will help you get back into alignment so that you can be your most awesome and authentic self!
How to raise your energetic vibration
Follow this process for raising your vibes! When you do this, you’ll be able to bring your highest energy and your most authentic self into any situation. Other people will pick up on this shift in your energy and you’ll notice a major change in the way they respond to you, as well as in how you feel.
Step 1: Become aware of your energy
If there are areas of your life where you always feel blocked or out of alignment, or the outcome is never what you were hoping for, then check in with yourself. Ask yourself, “What is the energy that I’m bringing forth? And how is my energy affecting other people?”
Be the honest, nonjudgmental witness of your energy and its impact. It’s important to bring in the principles of my Judgment Detox method throughout this process. Whenever we witness some aspect of ourselves that isn’t serving us, our ego will want to judge it. Instead, honor yourself for your willingness to look at your patterns. It takes courage to get real!
Try my free mini course to release judgment
Does thinking about the energy you bring forth lead you to judge yourself? Or have you been judging the people who have been rejecting you? Maybe both! I want to support you as you start to change your patterns, so I made you a free Judgment Detox Mini Course to guide you through three core practices of the method.

Step 2: Pray before you walk in the door
Pray before you walk in the door, pick up the phone, write the email or do anything else where you’ll be communicating and interacting with others. Right before you walk into a restaurant for a date, or before you step into an office for an interview, say this prayer:
“Thank you, Universe, for helping me align with my authentic truth.”
When you align with your truth, you raise your energetic vibration! This simple prayer is all you need to invite in a presence greater than yourself to reconnect you to your authenticity and positivity.
Step 3: Breathe and count
When you’re in a situation where you feel like your vibes are lowering or like you’re putting out a strange signal, the solution is simple. Take a deep breath and count to 10. Breathe in for a count of 10, and release for a count of 10.
You can be in the middle of a conversation and just take that long, deep breath, or you can briefly excuse yourself and just breathe. Your breath is so powerful; it can reorganize all that is happening within you. As a result, the entire situation can be completely transformed.
If you can’t take that long of a breath in the moment, then breathe in for a count of three and out for a count of three. Anytime you get that feeling like you’re not being yourself, or if you’re veering into negativity, just breathe.
Bonus step 4: Set empowering intentions
In my book The Universe Has Your Back, I devote a whole chapter to exercises that raise your vibration. One exercise is to start setting empowering intentions.
Setting an intention can be as simple as stating to yourself (silently or out loud) that you’re ready to reconnect to your presence. When you make this statement, you release the fear that blocks you from tuning in to the presence of your power.
When you notice that you’re out of alignment, set the intention to come back home.
This statement sends a message to the Universe that you’re willing to align your thoughts and energy with love. Whenever you notice yourself out of alignment, set the intention to come back home.
Think about the intentions you set throughout your day. Are you intending to…
- Get things done fast?
- Achieve and accomplish?
- Avoid negative outcomes?
- Just get through the day?
What would happen if instead you intended to feel good?
How to set an empowering new intention
Identify the area of your life where you’ve been blocking the flow of love, and set a new intention. Maybe you’ll intend to have more fun or to appreciate what you do have rather than on what you think you lack. Start extending a new perception that’s backed with love.
Open your journal and write your new intention as a sentence in the present tense. For example, “I’m manifesting an amazing romantic partner and having fun on my dates.”
Now that you have a clear new intention, say it aloud throughout the day. When you wake up in the morning, set your intention with conviction. When you fall back into a fear cycle during the day, set your intention again.
As you stay committed to your positive intention you’ll raise your energetic vibration and begin to experience the energy of the Universe supporting you.
The effect of raising your vibration
Once you tap into this power and learn how to shift your energetic vibration, you’ll start to notice real change. People will want to be around you. They’ll feel elevated by your presence, possibly without even knowing why. You’ll be more vibrant, more attractive in all ways, even smarter and sharper.
You’ll feel the change, too! When you’re connected to your truth you feel energized, joyful, more inspired and more at ease. Raise your vibes and enjoy the results.
