When you hear the statement “raise your vibration” what comes to your mind? What do you understand by this statement “raise your vibration”? It is no longer news that we are living in a Universe where everything is vibrating. Suffice to say that we live in a sea of energy! And everything is energy!
To raise your vibration means to lift up your mood. It can also used to mean to amp-up your mojo. If someone is happy, the person is in a higher vibration. If someone is sad, the person is in a lower vibration. EVERYTHING around us is vibrating at their own frequency!! Even we human beings are vibrating too. Just that these things are too subtle that we can barely notice them. It takes a sharpened intuition and “alignment” to be aware of the vibratory nature of the Universe. That now leads us to the question: what vibrating in? Are you in a lower vibration? Or you are in a higher vibration?
Have you noticed that there are some songs you hear and you cannot help but be happy? Yes, that song has raised your vibration. There are also some songs you hear and you feel sad; that song has lowered your vibration. Have you also noticed the way people feel when they hear a good news? For example, a woman gives birth to a baby safely; everyone leaps for joy and it calls for celebration! That is a higher vibrational experience because it puts everyone in a happy mood and positive momentum. The same thing applies when some gets a job, wins an award, gets a contract, win in a contest, travels abroad etc. On the other hand, when someone is sick, is cheated on have a heartbreak; has an accident, injures you see that the person is not happy. The person’s mood is altered negatively. When you are in a higher vibration, you are LIGHTER but when you are in a lower vibration you are HEAVIER!
Actually, there are MANY ways we can raise our vibrations. We can raise our vibration by doing the following:
1. Spending time in Nature
2. Playing and listening to uplifting music
3. Reading good books
4. Reading success stories
5. Eating healthy and organic food
6. Showing gratitude (a grateful mind is a magnet for miracles)
7. Keeping good friends
8. Playing Mantra
As a person who is mantra minded, I decided to talk about Kwan Yin mantra. Now, I understand that not everyone is familiar with mantra. Someone might say, “I am not your typical Om chanting buddy.” But if you explore the subject of mantra I am sure you will love it. I began exploring the subject of mantra in 2017 when I was in the early stages of my Spiritual Awakening. There are many mantras; but I am talking about Kwan Yin mantra.
I am sure you might be wondering, what is Kwan Yin or who Kwan Yin is. Kwan Yin is a Bodhisattva; an Ascended Master. You can refer to her as Lady Master Kwan Yin. Kwan Yin is WELL KNOWN as the Goddess of Compassion. I have also written an article about Kwan Yin in my previous post so that will give you a detailed knowledge about Kwan Yin.
First of all, what is mantra? Mantra is the bridge over which we pass from the natural to the spiritual order of things. The word itself originated from the Sanskrit language. In the words of Kalu Rinpoche, mantra is enlightened sound, the speech of the Bhodisattva of Compassion. The Kwan Yin mantra is Om Mani Padme Hum, which means “Hail to the jewel in the lotus flower.” Other than the “Om”, probably the most popular mantra of the East is “Om Mani Padme Hum.” (“Om Mani Peme Hung” in Tibetan). This is the six syllabled mantra honors and invokes Avalokitesvara, (Chenrezig in Tibetan) the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Avalokitesvara is gifted with complete enlightenment and said to reject no plea made to him by individuals in distress.
“Om Mani Padme Hum” has always been one of my favorites. This mantra has the capacity to put in a softer ambience with a great serenity. As it is very TRANQUIL and SUBLIME; even if you are not familiar with mantra; why do not you give this one a try and see for yourself.
The meaning of this mantra is often translated as “The jewel in the center of the lotus”. “Om Mani Padme Hum”, is a mantra that is used for protection, healing and many other positive attributes including communication with higher realms of consciousness. But most powerfully, it is a mantra used to generate compassion. And indeed, when people chant or listen to this mantra, they seem to have the element of compassion manifest within them. I like this. I think the world needs compassion. A whole lot more compassion.I discovered this mantra in 2018 when I was reading my FAVOURITE book (An Awakening: Mapping Your Dream Volume I by Suzanne Hosang. It talked about Kwan Yin in it; so I looked up the name Kwan Yin BECAUSE I had come across Kwan Yin in a book published by the Jehovah’s Witness when I used to be a member of the Jehovah’s Witness.
In the process of reading about Kwan Yin; I came across Kwan Yin mantra. I was moved and inspired by the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra so I decided to check it out on YouTube. After streaming it for the first time, I told myself again. I played it again. After playing it for the second time; I was like again! Then I played it for the second time. It SO put me in MINDFULNESS and HIGHER VIBRATIONS throughout my time on the PC. Even as I type this blogpost I am still playing it. There after I began playing it often. I studied it and learnt the correct pronunciation. If you want to bring in more compassion, joy and mindfulness I encourage you to incorporate the Kwan Yin mantra into your ritual. YOU V GOT THIS!
I wrap up this post by leaving you with the words of Kwan Yin to ponder on:
Words of Kwan Yin
“Here are my sacred instructions: First, have mercy upon yourselves. You have endured much in your land, and you have eons of lessons yet before you. Only through a gentle touch is Nirvana revealed. Stretch and reach for greatness, but always with a gentle approach. Seek not opportunities, but allow them, to gently come to you as a lotus flower floats upon the currents of water amidst a gentle breeze. Strive, but not with hurry—enjoy the process upon which you embark. Know that each step along the way is akin to a party—a celebration of movement, which is itself a miracle.
“Appreciate the godliness within yourself, within each of you. Do not chide yourself for your errors and mistakes, but laugh, grow, and learn from them instead. You, my gentle child, are doing just fine—in fact, very well indeed.
“If I were to give you any word of wisdom, it would be the word that best embodies love upon this Earth plane to me: compassion. Growing past all shame and embarrassment, and moving toward appreciation, not just for the ‘good’ parts of yourself and others, but for all along the way—it’s all good, believe me. And if you can know that as the eternal truth sooner rather than later, your happiness will come galloping toward you at the speed of mustangs with winged hooves. Believe that as the truth. Now.
“Wisdom comes from sitting still and listening, not from rushing to get ahead. A still heart receives love and information more readily than one that is harried. Do something simple today: Pick a flower and simply study it with no intent. Be blank. Be open. And know that whatever comes to you is good, and a lesson in the making—always and forever.”
Until next time, I say embrace COMPASSION. Take care of your energy and vibrations
