  • Do You Pay Attention To Your Vibe?

    Posted on March 11th, 2011 Robyn No comments

    So now that we have set the stage, lets get things started with a real life example drawn from the pages of my life. Last weekend I went to a friend’s house for dinner and had invited a female friend (lets call her Cathy) whom I hadn’t seen in a few months to come along. I was looking forward to seeing her as we haven’t seen each other much in the last few years, mostly because of reasons like I am going to tell you about. Cathy within the first 5 minutes of our first conversation in several months launches into a typcial “I’ve been WRONGED” routine. (She’s had several over the years). This one went something like this: “You are NOT going to believe what Carl (ex-husband) did to me. He friend-ed that skank (a woman ex-husband had been “e-cheating with prior to divorce which was final early 2010) on FB, and then she friend-ed Paul and Sam (two shared male friends of the ex-husband). Can you BELIEVE the audacity of him?! I called and told him it was unacceptable and totally disrespectful for him to rub her in my face and he needed to knock it off.” I just looked at her and the only thing I could respond was “So? What do you care? You are divorced. And why are you friends with your ex on FB and why are you spying on him?” Turns out she wasn’t friends with the ex but she was friends with two common male friends who were also FB friends with her ex so she was seeing things via her News Feed off of their FB pages. She got very defensive to my comments saying that she wasn’t spying and she doesn’t post at all (so she is basically a voyeur :-) ) and she “only has 45 friends on FB”. Man, she spouted off that number like it was as meaningful as her blood pressure or cholesterol. So…..LOL I am not sure there is a web page long enough to discuss in how MANY MANY different ways this situation is pathway to personal misery and a pretty good example of how a lot of people operate without even being conscious of what they are doing but here we are; we’ve arrived at the first practice tip. While many guru’s will say that in order to work towards enlightenment, raise your consciousness, raise your vibration, your personal frequency, your “vibe”, you need to “just allow the moment to be” or to practice meditation or devotion.  I say the first step before you can allow the moment to be is this: BE SELF AWARE. This is not the same as being self absorbed.  As someone who has to operate in the real world and deal with real people, my best advice before you can even begin thinking about raising your vibration, whatever your motivation is to do so, is to start by stepping outside of yourself, your life, your behavior and observe yourself as if you were observing another person. Take Notice. If you were watching someone like Cathy would you jump right in and co-miserate and feed the story with encouragement,helping to increase the negative energy in the situation? Or would your first observations be: 1) why is she hanging on to the past? 2) why does she believe that the decisions of these 4 people have anything to do with her at all, particluarly given they probably don’t even realize that she sees the activity, 3) and why would she want to put herself into a situation where she knows it is possible that she will see things that will upset her.  Practice, for just a week, being able to notice your behavior when others are negative and noticing how much you contribute to your own misery. Notice how the decisions you make, the topics you talk about, the things you think about, the way your are behaving make you FEEL as they are occurring. I am sure that when Cathy was telling her story, she felt important and justified, not to mention interesting and exicting because she had a story. She was also probably looking for someone to validate her indignation and for some sympathy. Eckhart Tolle’s “pain body” doing its best work. So ask yourslef if your decisions, thoughts and actions are for your highest good and the highest good of the people that they will impact or are they only to feed the ego beast? Take notice and understand your motivations. Believe it or not, things that will lower or raise your vibe are easily discernable by the way they make you feel if you will just pay attention. There is more on this approach of “third person” and other tips coming up. In the meantime, just practice stepping back when you feel yourself in the middle of rant, a piece of gossip, some questionable behavior and take notice of yourself and your motivations and the physcial feelings from an objective perspective. 

    It is important not to judge what you observe. Just notice! This isn’t an exercise to beat yourself up. This is an exercise to help you recognize that you can take yourself off of automatic pilot and get reacquainted with your true, loving, lively, powerful, manifesting Self.  We will get into more on this step and other tips in the next post. if you have observations or experiences during this practice that you would like to share, I would love to hear from you. Just email me at robyn@raiseyourvibe.net

    In the meantime, prayers that you recieve exactly what you need in this moment.

    Much Love Robyn

  • Keep It Simple – First Things First – Part 3

    Posted on March 8th, 2011 Robyn 1 comment

    There are a lot of websites, magazines and speakers claiming to point the way to enlightenment, the best way to manifest, how to raise your consciousness, aka “vibe”. Some of them, like Eckhart Tolle, have very simple messages, like “The Power of Now” but even that is a message that has little meaning for those who are not ready to hear it. He even jokes about the letters he gets telling him his book makes no sense on one of his audio sets. Others like Andrew Cohen and EnlightenNext magazine, have wonderful messages but it is so over intellectualized I can’t even follow what they are talking about half the time. Spiral dynamics? Really? Jesus and Buddha didn’t seem to need such terms to share their message.  The problem is that these folks, however well intentioned they are, appeal to audiences that are already a ways down the road in developing the skills to rise above the mental noise, emotional pain and materialism of the world. The people that REALLY need the assistance need a champion if we really want to change the world. People need help getting over a job loss, a broken heart, financial worries, victimization, loneliness.  The vast majority of people are too busy trying to make it though the day, make a living, get everything done, to basically just cope. If you tried to talk to them about enlightenment or raising conciousness, you would get an irritated confused stare. You may as well be from another planet. THOSE are the people I am wanting to reach. It CAN be better, you CAN get over things you percieve to be of significant pain to you,  and you CAN manifest a better life but you aren’t going to do it in the mental and emotional space that you are currently residing. We are going to ease into how to shift out of that space with just a few simple concepts and some examples that will make you step outside of  your life, your rut, your drama, your frustration in order to have a better chance of recognizing what changes will help you and what exactly it is that needs to change. In the meantime, as always my prayer for you is that the Universe will deliver to your doorstep exactly what you need in this moment and the moments until we can meet again.

    Much Love

  • Stirrings That Inspire You to Raise Your Vibrations

    Posted on February 23rd, 2011 Robyn No comments

    In this day and age, I doubt there are few who have not heard of the Law of Attraction and Abraham Hicks. Many of you who found your way here have no doubt been to a seminar of one sort of another. Or if you are a Christian, you have undoubtedly heard one or two prosperity sermons in the course of you Sunday sermons.  And yet, I can almost guarantee you are STILL lost along with most of the rest of the planet who hasn’t heard of any of this.  Are you still going through everyday experiencing all kinds of events that bruise or offend your ego, lower your faith in humanity and leave you frustrated with your lot in life? This guy hadn’t called you back after your first date, that stupid jerk cut in front of you on the interstate, that ridiculous woman doesn’t deserve to be in her position as your manager and is making your life a living hell. Or maybe your children are already on the way to making train wrecks of their lives, you don’t even recognize your spouse as the person you married and you are wondering if this is really what it was all supposed to be about? On any given day, does the list of offenses against you by humanity or a love interest have at LEAST 3 or 4 items on it. And this list keeps your brain going 24/7 ruminating on who was wrong, why they were wrong, more importantly, why YOU were more right about EVERYTHING, more deserving of the position, more justified in your anger etc. That were I was 20 years ago and I got to the point that I was EXHAUSTED from it all.  Meanwhile, something unseen and unknown which I kept trying to push to the the back of my mind was always quietly calling to me, telling me there was a better way, more to life than this constant struggling. I ignored it for a long time because I was, after all,  busy with my very, very important thinking about things and solving what was wrong with the world.  I can pinpoint the day, time and event that I finally got me to pay attention and start my search in earnest.  From that point forward, I had an unyielding need to understand myself, why I was here and why the world was so jacked up. Why was I going through all of this? And so I begin the search in earnest and I am going to share the many resources I found useful, what was going on for me when my manifesting was awesome and what was going on when it wasn’t. I am also going to open up an advice page. If you have questions about how to apply the concepts that are discussed in the context of your personal situation, feel free to email Advice@raiseyourvibe.net. I will be happy to help you out.

    Prayers for you to receive in this moment, exactly what you need.

    Much Love
