What emotions dominate your consciousness? What beliefs and attitudes drive your actions? Are they any better than those held by the likes of Donald Sterling, the owner of the LA Clippers basketball team who was banned from the league for his racist remarks?
If it is true that our thoughts, attitudes and beliefs determine our vibration, his must be in the toilet. How about yours?
How much of your consciousness is habitually controlled by fear, anger, resentment, shame and guilt, rather than by peace, joy, forgiveness and love?
To what extent are your relationships about domination, control and demand, versus equality, respect and freedom?
This is how you can measure your own vibration. Why is it important? Because the lower your vibratory rate, the less healthy you become in mind, body and spirit. (It is no surprise to me that Sterling has cancer.)
Also, like attracts like, so if your vibration is low, you will find yourself in low-vibration relationships. That makes for a whole lot of drama!
Unfortunately, the reverse is also true. If you hang out with low vibration people, they will drag your vibration down with them – that is, unless you apply the principles of Radical Acceptance to them.
That’s where you see beyond the person to that which is the divine essence in them. (We have a worksheet for this in the Free Stuff section of the website. It does work.)
Doing that will immediately catapult your vibration out the roof!
In fact, if you habitually apply Radical Forgiveness, of which Radical Acceptance is a part, to all aspects of your life, your vibration will shoot way up and remain there.
It was that idea that gave me the impetus to write the book: 25 Practical Uses for Radical Forgiveness, A Handbook for Solving the Problems and Challenges of Everyday Life in a New Way.
The more you use tools like the Radical Forgiveness Worksheet, the more grounded you will become at the higher vibration. You will become more attuned to receiving guidance from the Universe.
The higher your vibration, the more powerful, healthy and peaceful you will be. Your contribution to the energy field of those around you, and even that of the planet, will be enormous.
Still not sure where to start? Well, first become more conscious by submitting all your ideas, beliefs and prejudices about race, gender, politics, and so on, to some rigorous scrutiny to see if they are of high or low vibration.
To tell the difference between high and low frequency, simply notice how you feel in your body when, in meditation or in conversation, you give expression to those things – especially those that are fed by greed, selfishness and meanness of spirit.
By paying close attention, you will literally feel your vibration go up or down in response to what you are saying or even thinking.
By the way, if Donald Sterling’s expression of his low vibration ideas upset you emotionally, it means he is a mirror for you. Not just you, either. Everyone.
We are all racist to some degree still. We need to admit it before we can heal it. By rubbing our nose in it, Sterling is a healing angel for all of us.
So, take this opportunity to do a Radical Forgiveness Worksheet on him, and heal that part of you that is being reflected.
Then make a conscious decision to release any toxic ideas and adopt new, peaceful, loving practices in their place. You can’t help but feel your vibration get higher, and you’ll contribute much to the overall rising of the vibration of the planet.
