While it's impossible to measure positive energy, you know when you have it in abundance. You feel optimistic, ambitious, confident, and happy to engage with life.
Positive energy attracts more positivity, in the form of new opportunities and good relationships. In contrast, when you lack positive energy, you tend to feel wiped out, anxious, and inhibited.
If you've been feeling like this lately, you might be wondering whether there's anything you can do to restore your positive energy.
Perhaps you worry that it's entirely beyond your control.
The good news is that it is entirely possible to restore positive energy – for your mind, soul, and body.
You simply have to learn how to differentiate between positive and negative energy and work on consciously influencing your energy.
We'll walk you through deepening your understanding of how positive energy works, and we'll give you concrete tips to help you create positive energy in your life today.
Let's begin by clarifying what a positive energy field is.
You're probably already familiar with the concept of an aura, which is related to your energy field.
When you detect someone's aura, their energy field is part of what makes the aura a particular color or shade.
Your positive energy field is largely thought to relate to the low-level electromagnetic energy that we all emit. We all emit this energy at different frequencies at different points.
When that energy is at a high frequency, it's a positive energy field.
This field is seen when you're in a good mood, and it pulls things vibrating at a similar frequency towards you – other people with a high vibration, as well as abundance more generally.
So, whether you want career success, wealth, love, or something entirely, a positive energy field maximizes your chances.
The concept of positive energy fields is highly abstract, so it's helpful to think more concretely about specific signs of positive energy.
How do you know if you're aligned with high vibrations?
Look out for the following indicators to see whether you typically embrace positive energy.
It's also useful to have a sense of how low positive energy (or low vibrational frequency) typically presents.
If you regularly notice any of the following signs, it's likely that you need to work on increasing your vibrational frequency.
Increasing your frequency will allow you to if you want to draw more positivity into your life.
So, now you know how to tell whether you have high levels of positive energy.
Let's turn now to how you can replenish your stock of positive energy when you've noticed you're storing a lot of negative energy. It's vital to learn how to cleanse negativity, creating room for positivity.
Only then when you constantly vibrate on a high enough frequency to attract all the things you want. Here's how to restore positive energy in your body, mind, and soul.
Even if you're in a good place emotionally, a lack of positive energy in your body can drag you down. A sedentary lifestyle, poor quality sleep, or a bad diet all sap your energy, lowering your vibration.
But there are at least two things you can do right now in order to replenish your body's positive energy.
First, focus on shifting that stagnant energy in your body – that feeling of sluggishness, of heaviness.
Any type of movement will help here.
Cardiovascular exercises like running, cycling, or dancing will all get endorphins flowing, giving you the famous “runner's high”.
Movement and exercise serve a dual purpose here. First, it releases negative energy stored in your body – you literally sweat out toxins (e.g., leftover stress hormones, like cortisol).
Secondly, exercise also allows new, positive energy to flow into you as your blood oxygen levels rise to compensate for the exertion.
Find a form of exercise that doesn't feel like a chore, and keep it up!
As noted above, an unhealthy diet saps your positive energy and drags down your vibration.
However, there are high vibrational foods that do precisely the opposite.
Try to add the following to as many meals and snacks as you can:
In contrast, do your best to avoid low vibrational foods like white flour, sugar, red meat, soda, pasteurized dairy foods and deep fried foods.
While it's great to fill the body with positive energy, it's hard to enjoy this without a positive mental state. When your mind lacks positive energy, your thinking is typically anxious, slow, repetitive, and self-undermining.
The power of positive thinking is real and can change your life in many wonderful ways.
To get into a place of focus, improve your problem-solving skills, and boost your mood, try these two approaches.
First, to get rid of built-up negative mental energy, find someone to talk to who will listen to your feelings – who will be patient, even if you have to rant.
Say your worries out loud, and let them go.
The power of vulnerability should not be underestimated and this creates a new space for positivity.
When you don't have someone suitable to talk to, you can learn how to journal and share your thoughts that way.
Don't filter your thoughts or feelings, no matter how chaotic.
Meanwhile, talking to someone positive generates more positive energy in you too.
Know which friends to go to for laughter, for lightness, and for confidence-boosting conversation. Even five minutes with someone like this can raise your vibration.
Having a positive energy field is also a matter of choice, to some extent.
Even if you're feeling angry, scared, or worried, you can choose not to let it consume your mind.
Deliberately make an effort to find something good in that apparent badness.
What can you learn? What can you be grateful for?
Sometimes, the good thing is just that this difficulty could be even worse than it is!
With time and effort, your default response will become one of shifting your mindset and concentrating on the good.
This keeps you full of positive energy, raising your vibration and attracting abundance.
Now, how about your soul? Your emotional center and your sense of self play a massive role in whether you radiate positive energy.
As such, it's important to monitor whether your soul feels balanced, peaceful, and happy.
When life is hard and you're battling negativity, try the following four techniques to immediately lift your soul and thereby your vibration.
There are many wonderful benefits to applying breathwork into your everyday life.
It can boost your immunity, reduce stress and energy levels and aid positive development.
There are many different breathwork exercises you can try, but the simplest is often the most effective.
To calm and center yourself, make sure you exhale for longer than you inhale.
So, for example, you might try inhaling for a count of five, holding your breath for a count of five, and exhaling to a count of seven.
Adjust the pattern so that you feel comfortable, and try to breathe from your diaphragm (the muscles just beneath your ribs).
Any time you feel negative, this type of breathwork can help to heal your positive energy.
Meditation essential builds on what you do in your breathwork exercises, tuning your focus into the present moment and balancing your soul.
It might seem daunting when you don't actually know how to meditate.
Focus on meditation exercises that actively generate positivity.
For example, you might visualize yourself exhaling negativity and inhaling positivity.
Choose colors that you associate with positivity and negativity, and see yourself becoming filled with the “positive” color.
Alternatively, you might want to visualize yourself becoming surrounded by golden light.
One exercise combines these two techniques, asking you to first visualize emptying yourself of negativity and then imagining liquid sunshine pouring into your body, starting at your toes and working up to your head.
The above tips and techniques can immediately help you combat negative energy and boost your physical, mental, and spiritual energy.
However, there's always more you can do in order to create positive energy in your life. To finish off our exploration of positive energy fields, let's consider how self-love, positive action, and practicing gratitude can all give your vibration a significant boost.
It's vital to remember that you are your own biggest source of positive energy.
If you take good care of yourself, your positive energy builds, your vibration heightens, and you begin projecting that positivity outward.
As the saying goes, the more you love yourself the more you're able to love others.
So, how do you build up that self-love? Here are some self-care ideas to help you focuses on meeting your needs. Schedule daily time to relax and to explore your passions.
There are many self-care ideas you can start exploring to live a happier life, especially when life gets hard.
In addition, consider the role that your relationships are playing.
Do they feel warm and reciprocal? Or do you need to say “no” more often, or even pull back from some of the people in your life?
Make sure that you only interact with people who treat you as you deserve to be treated. If someone makes you feel respected, valued and cared for, they will help you build self-love.
Your energy field is intimately linked to your general energy levels.
In other words, if you're up all night and you're exhausted, you won't likely be radiating positive energy.
Your mood will lower, your negative energy will inhibit your ability to succeed, and you're likely to feel physically unwell too.
Of course, the number one thing to do to boost your vibration here is to ensure that you get a good night's sleep.
The average adult needs 7-9 hours, depending on how your individual body works. Keep your bedroom solely for rest, and wind down for at least an hour before sleep.
However, we can't always get the right number of hours – and even when we do, that isn't always all we need in order to actually feel rested.
This means it's important to add in other restful activities. Think long walks in nature, setting aside time for calming activities (such as drawing, reading, or coloring).
Taking positive action is a broad category that encompasses a wide range of things you can do alone and with others.
On your own, try to listen to positive energy music, or repeat a positive energy affirmation of your choice.
Affirmations are simply positive statements that you recite as you look into the mirror.
They help you to get rid of old, negative beliefs and boost your vibration as you adopt new, positive beliefs.
Try to target the things that lower your energy.
For example, you might say “I am loved, I am happy and I am successful.” There are no strict rules – choose affirmations that feel natural.
Meanwhile, in terms of your interactions with others, surround yourself with positive people.
Your energy will rise to align with them, creating a feedback loop in which you all build each other up.
Meanwhile, avoid the ones who reliably drag your energy down.
Finally, it's impossible to overstate the importance of gratitude.
While you might feel grateful for the big things in life – promotions, weddings, graduations – there's a difference between this and living a life of gratitude.
Practicing gratitude is all about tuning into the little things that matter.
Think of the things that make your day better – from people to events, to beautiful things you see.
Every time you focus on one or more of these things, you build your stocks of positive energy.
And as your stock build, you radiate more positivity, attracting other positive people toward you.
That's why gratitude is so closely connected with the Law of Attraction, according to which like attracts like.
Being mindful of gratitude is a perfect way to become what you want to attract.
To get into the habit of being grateful, keep a gratitude journal, and make time each evening to note down 5-10 things that made you feel grateful.
It is important to maintain a positive attitude so your energy levels can remain high.
If you find obtaining a positive attitude to be hard, especially when negative situations come your way, trying self-hypnosis might be a solution for you!
Using a positive attitude self-hypnosis in the comfort of your own home can start shifting your mindset and therefore shift your energy levels.
It can help you build a solid foundation of positivity in your mind so that when hard times hit, you are still able to radiate positivity.
The higher your positive attitude the more positive situation you are able to attract into your life with the Law of Attraction.
