11 Things that Lower Your Vibration and How to Fix It

things that lower your vibration

We all have a vibration or life force energy that runs through our entire body. It is this vibration that determines our overall energy, aura and the type of experiences, people and events that we attract into our lives.

Our vibration is always changing depending on our mood and the overall quality of life that we are experiencing. These daily fluctuations are normal and are unlikely to have an impact unless our vibration drops for an extended period of time.

Effects of a Low Vibration

When your vibration is consistently low it can lead to tiredness, physical illness, an overall feeling of negativity and being out of touch with your soul and heart wisdom. 

It can also make it more difficult for you to tune into your purpose or intuition and can lead you to attracting chaos, drama and other negative experiences into your life.

Unless you put conscious effort into raising our vibration, it is most likely that it is lower than it should be, this is because the modern lifestyle often supports a low vibration. 

There are many things that lower your vibration, but here are 11 of the most common-


  1. Junk food and processed foods
  2. Stress and Anxiety
  3. Toxic products/environment (cosmetics, cleaners, pollution etc.)
  4. Prolonged exposure to electronics/cell phones/computers/TV
  5. Holding on to anger, guilt or resentment 
  6. Negative self talk (not feeling good enough)
  7. Gossiping about others 
  8. Wanting more (rather than being grateful for what you have)
  9. Living in the past  
  10. Worrying about the future
  11. Alcohol and drugs

Raising Your Vibration 

On the path to higher consciousness or spiritual awakening, learning how to raise your vibration is often something that comes naturally and organically. 

While there are many ways to raise your vibration, some of the easiest methods include-

  1. Meditation
  2. Being creative 
  3. Eating raw/whole foods
  4. Focusing on Gratitude 
  5. Feeling Unconditional Love 
  6. Being in Nature
  7. Accepting what is 
  8. Crystals
  9. Yoga/Exercise
  10. Laughing
  11. Music/Singing/Chanting

When your vibration is high, not only do you feel better, but it also allows you to become a better manifestor and creator of your destiny. A high vibration also strengthens your immune system and can protect you against illness and disease.

When your vibration is high, tuning into your intuition and following the wisdom of your heart also becomes a lot easier and more fluid. 

As you can see, there are so many benefits to raising your vibration, but can your vibration ever get too high?

Balancing Your Vibration

Just like anything in life, balance is often key. When your vibration gets too high, it can cause you to lose touch with your physical body and reality itself. This can cause you to feel all over the place and can make it very difficult to stay present on Earth. 

This is why in any attempt to raise your vibration, grounding rituals and earthing rituals are so important. These help you to stay rooted in reality but also allow you to explore and receive the benefits of being in a high vibration state as well. 

When you focus on balancing your vibration and keeping it at a level that feels comfortable for you, life takes on a different flow and becomes more graceful, joyful and peaceful.
