Have you ever seen someone take a lie detector test on a movie?
That person's thoughts produce an electrical current that can be measured by a machine, and so do your emotions.
Every emotion you feel has its own vibration, just like every key inside of a piano does.
Thanks to the work of Dr. David Hawkins, we know the vibrations of the most typical emotions humans experience.
The vibration of love is quite high. It measures at 500 Hertz (Hz), as compared to fear, which vibrates at 100Hz, or shame, which is about 20Hz. The reason love feels so good is because of its vibration!
Hawkins, Power vs. Force, 2014.
Emotions that vibrate at 200Hz or above are considered to be creative energies. It's the type of energy you need to put something out there into the world: a blog or social post, a new program, or a video.
Emotions that are below 200Hz, are destructive in nature. They cause you to contract, close up, and hide, influencing you to play small and always second guess yourself.
What's this have to do with my business?
To build a successful business with ease, you must manage your vibration and learn to keep it high. Owning and operating a business is one of the most creative endeavors you can ever embark upon, and creative energy requires a high vibration.
Think about it this way...
Have you ever felt inspired to write, paint, color, make music, or build something?
How were you feeling at that time?
Probably pretty good!
This is because you're vibration was high...you were up there on the scale.
Have you ever sat down at your computer when you're supposed to write a blog or create some type of content but you were tired, sad or frustrated?
In those moments, it was very hard to create because your vibration was low.
Creation requires a high vibration.
And with all of the opportunities to judge yourself as an entrepreneur, it can be a real challenge to keep things light and stay positive.
But one of the fastest ways to sabotage your success is you to live in the low vibrations, and it's exactly where you'll end up if you don't learn to increase your vibration and manage it on a daily basis.
The most common cause of low vibrations is the never ending mental chatter you have in the form of limiting beliefs and the judgements you place upon yourself.
Limiting beliefs are the patterns of thought whose only goal is to keep you stuck right where you are.
Limiting beliefs sound like...
"They won't pay me that much."
"I'm not good enough."
"I don't know enough."
"They'll reject me, laugh at me."
Judgements are thoughts about how someone or something is good or bad. They lack acceptance and love.
Judgements sound like...
"That was a bad decision."
"I made a huge mistake."
"She's so much more successful than me."
Each one of these thoughts is attached to low vibe emotions like fear, guilt, and shame, which are destructive energies. They are the opposite of creative energy...the energy required to build a business, and attract clients. These types of emotions do nothing for you or your business.
Low vibe emotions...
High vibration emotions like love, on the other hand, does many things. It promotes oneness, wholeness, and creation. When you stay in the vibration of love you are fully accepting yourself and others.
Every time you move away from love of yourself and others, and into emotions like fear, guilt and shame you are preventing the growth of your business right in its tracks.
This is why some days feel so very hard. Like you're doing everything you've been taught and you're hustling but things just aren't clicking.
Ask yourself this during those sticky moments...
Have I moved away from love?
I bet the answer will be yes.
The good news?
This is very easy to shift. It takes practice and consistency, but it will profoundly change your business forever!
Take some time capturing all of the unloving thoughts you have about yourself and your business over the course of a few days.
Write the thoughts down so you can see them in black and white and confront them.
For each thought, ask if there is an underlying emotion you are feeling. What is it?
Is it fear? Rejection? Resentment?
Maybe the feeling of unworthiness?
Sit with it.
Ask it, what is it that I can learn from you right now?
When you sit with the low vibe emotions and acknowledge them, they lose their power over you. They dissipate.
Once the energy has shifted, you may return to love.
This can be done through a gratitude practice, or meditation. It can be done by connecting deeply with others or prayer. It can be done simply by closing your eyes and picturing someone you love in front of you and imagining that you are sending them all of the love in your heart that you can possibly generate.
How you do this doesn't matter.
Just do it!
Learning how to reorient to love will grow your business faster and with more ease than anything else you could do.
Of this, I am convinced.
