The misinformation of what raises your vibration proliferates. It's a popular topic. People want to feel better. People want to be part of the new humanity. People want to survive 2012.
So what is vibration, for god's sake?
Vibration is a number. It's like a score. It's like the number on the scoreboard.
Imagine it's Sunday. You have a team of players and you are playing basketball. There are the opponents, there are the judges, there are the fans.
You play. As well or as poorly as you do. You either bring all of you to the game or you are a lame duck... and anything in between.
The numbers on the scoreboard change accordingly.
Next Sunday, next game. You either come to the game with the same attitude, the same level of skills or you do something better. The scoreboard will reflect the effort you put in during the week.
Easy, simple, easy to understand. The opponent is always the same. Your dark side. Your pretenses. Your stories. Your stuck ways of being, your attitude, your propensity for drama, your complaints, etc. Doing things the same way, expecting different results.
Now imagine that you come to my classes or my connection calls. You learn to connect to Source. You learn to step back. You learn to talk to your Ego and to your Soul. I give you energies, strong ones, transformational energies. They feel good.
It is as if you had an a-team player throw some baskets for your team. Your scores jump higher, but you didn't earn it. Next Sunday when the a-team player won't be there, your numbers will drop to accurately reflect your state of being.
You try something else to raise your vibration. Let's do Heaven on Earth, or HOE. The numbers stay the same. You feel good about yourself, your emotions are nicer, but the numbers don't go up. WTF?
OK, you order some energized water from Sophie to raise your vibration... you get it, you feel better, you sleep better, you may lose some weight, but the numbers stay the same. Now, that is depressing.
Let's try Tr.'s program... his water, his blah blah blah... I am sure that will raise my vibration! Sophie said it raised her vibration! It will work, I just know it. I muscle test and the answer is yes. OK, expensive, $200 a week, no problem. Anything to raise my vibration, right?
Oops, what happened? My vibration dropped. WTF?
OK, let's donate. Let's give Kiva loans! It worked in the past... WTF? it is not working any more?
Why? Let me illustrate it to you with another modality: business.
In Internet Marketing Circles there is a saying: you can work your way in, or you can buy your way in.
The first one is doing it on your own, trying this and trying that... most of it doesn't work, disjointed information, wrong information at the right time, or right information at the wrong time. It takes 7 years of working 24/7 before you get the hang of it, if ever. (It took ME seven years)
Or you can buy your way in. Sounds good, right? Lots of people buy expensive courses, coaching, etc. And yet only 1% of those succeed... WTF, right?
But if you look, there is a misunderstanding. The expression "buy your way in" seems to suggest 'no work', right? Correct me if I am wrong, but it is misleading. After all it should say: 'hire a guide through the swamps so you don't get sucked into doing the wrong thing, and (if you do the work) you will get to the other side safely... But no matter what, you have to do the work! The guide won't do it for you. Hired hands can't do it for you. YOU need to do the work. Bummer, right?
I have even fallen into the trap! I tried to help a friend create a business, by doing it for him, but I could not succeed. He can't do anything with what I built: now I am stuck even to write emails for him... and he has nothing. Not a business... nothing. I have another business I didn't want!
In the area of vibration: no one can do it for you. Just like on the basketball field: YOU need to score baskets. YOU need to increase your skills, drop bad habits, recover fast from disappointments, give up conceived notions, and WITH THAT you can have a chance at increasing your scores.
Practice, practice, practice. The right way, the right things, under the right guidance, in the right order. Or you will end up like a number of my students that didn't do the work: their scores dropped back a hundred or so...
There is no free lunch in the world of the Original Design. Original Design stands for REALITY.
In your dreams, in your fantasies, of course you can win the lottery, live happily ever after, knight on white horse, blah blah blah. Not in reality. In reality you need to work. You need to earn.
But working on your tan won't earn you scores. THAT won't raise your vibration.
