How does it "feel"? How do I combat these times- do I change my diet, for example? What can I do to get back to normal? Does this happen even to those who are living at a higher vibrational level? Can you shorten illnesses this way?

Jai , it seems to me you have already answered your own question . How does it feel ? when you feel good - vibe's/energy is up, when you feel not so great is on the down slope. Even those on a higher vibration would still experience contrast , otherwise there would no longer be desires , ergo , time to rejoin Source....

When you start towards higher consciousness things don't get easier, on the contrary everything is amplified. The first wave to hit you is that everything that is opposite to spiritual desire, I am talking about all the vices, suddenly show up from within, yearning for your attention. The Higher you reach, the greater the pull towards basic desires.

Essentially, everything that is counterproductive will seemingly appear everywhere to distract you. These are waves of change & waves of opportunity. You can't run from one side & enjoy the other. Suffering, pain, disaster, low energy vibrations, are all valid expressions of human existence. They won't disappear as we raise our vibration.

Your loved ones will still die in spite of your higher consciousness and at that moment you will feel terrible. But with this journey of awakening, you will learn to understand and process your suffering differently.

So pay attention to the suffering as well, and ask God or the Higher self for guidance in understanding the purpose behind it. You can't get rid of it. So might as well ride the emotion & learn from it.

I would firstly just sit in stillness for a few minutes, you'll know by how you feel if your energy and vibration is high or low. As The Traveller so rightly pointed out, when we begin this spiritual journey toward higher consciousness it is inevitable that things get perceivedly worse. By embarking on a spiritual path we are asking Source or God to show us the areas of our being that needs to grow and expand and we are given challenges so we can grow in those areas. Our tendency is to resist these challenges when we really need to welcome them and accept them as being there to help our growth. Most of the suffering we experience does not come from the challenge itself but from our resistance to it, the more we can accept as opposed to resist the easier we move through the challenge. Even the most highly evolved, spiritual people have challenges in their life ( that is part of being human ); the difference is they do not resist and because of their spiritual practices, their threshold for dealing with what happens is much higher.

I totally empathize with you as I am relatively new to this myself and there are times right now when I feel my life is in turmoil but I know the more I practice acceptance and know "this too shall pass" ( everything is impermanent ) the quicker the adverse situation passes. A lot of the time now I'd say I'm stuck on 9 or 10 of that emotional scale but a year ago I would probably have been much closer to the bottom. Just stick with a daily spiritual practice and look after your physical body, having a site like this is great because it lets us know we are all in this together and we can help and learn from each other.

One way to identify your current vibrational level is by using the Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale. On this scale, the smaller the number, the higher your level of vibration. You identify the number you are at by identifying the word or words which most closely match your current emotional state.

The Emotional Guidance Scale:

  1. Joy/Appreciation/Empowered/Freedom/Love
  2. Passion
  3. Enthusiasm/Eagerness/Happiness
  4. Positive Expectation/Belief
  5. Optimism
  6. Hopefulness
  7. Contentment
  8. Boredom
  9. Pessimism
  10. Frustration/Irritation/Impatience
  11. Overwhelment
  12. Disappointment
  13. Doubt
  14. Worry
  15. Blame
  16. Discouragement
  17. Anger
  18. Revenge
  19. Hatred/Rage
  20. Jealousy
  21. Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
  22. Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

From the book “Ask and It is Given”, pg. 114

Ask and It is Given contains several techniques for increasing your vibrational level. Which one you use depends on where you are at on the Emotional Guidance Scale. One technique that works at any level on the emotional scale is meditation.

In general anything that decreases your level of "bad stress" will lengthen your life, but more importantly, will improve your quality of life. As far as diet goes, I find that consuming "live" foods (such as fresh vegetables and fruits) always makes me feel better.

I guess it depends on how self-aware and intuitive you are. I have the Abraham Hicks book with the emotional scale guide. I also pay attention to my body. When I am sad or depressed, I often feel "heavy". Many people describe feeling "light" or "heavy". It's like when you eat too much carbs (or too much in general) and feel so stuffed and sluggish afterwards.

I found the other answers interesting because as I feel I have evolved in consciousness, my attraction towards more "basic" desires have waned. For example, where drinking alcohol may "satisfy" someone's need for "fulfillment", that type of activity is not enticing to me at all. Luckily, I was never a really a drinker anyways. I used to like to go out alot. Although I still enjoy social outings, I am very satisfied reading books on self-improvement, watch inspirational movies and videos on YouTube, or go on websites like this! I also love being in nature, doing some physical activity outdoors. Partying all night, sleeping all day, and feeling "drained" afterwards is not very rewarding. The activities that fulfill the more basic desires feel empty to me now. They never felt "right" anyways, and I think that happens when people's vibrations are raised, too.

@Oceanside , you are spot on with the light and heavy , I am reading Dr Joe Dispenza's book , and in it he talks of low vibrations and the heaviness and the opposite , I wish I could find it , but for the moment it is eluding me , will post as it surfaces again :-)

(15 Feb '13, 21:03) Starlight

@Starlight - thanks, I'm glad it helped. Do you mean the lightness is eluding you? It's ok. You are on your way. I would take the suggestions about diet and physiology, too. I have been detoxifying myself from aspartame. Eeek, I know. But, I thought by consuming sugar-free products I was being healthy, until I realized the artificial sweetener may be the cause of my various states of heaviness, too. I'll have to look up Dr. Dispenza's book. Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

(15 Feb '13, 21:56) OceanSize

@Oceanside , lol, no I meant the line in his book :-)

I listen to my bodies talk daily , the knot that always arising only in my left shoulder telling me I am wound up , take a breath , chill etc Here's the link to my question ,but now you have title you can download via kindle should you wish to investigate :-)

I would say when you do not want to do nothing except complain. Or when you fall in a negative state of mind. think positive though and emotion,sweept your area from negative energy and spray some salt around for 6 hours. Meditate relax,go out take a walk bread some air get in the sunlight. Go swim or take a shower.
