Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Melissa Alvarez, author of 365 Ways to Raise Your Frequency.

Frequency is your personal vibratory rate, the way your energy moves within you. It can affect your moods, making you have a good or bad day. Choose to become more aware of your frequency because, through awareness, you are able to pay attention to the nuances in your frequency, sense its highs and lows, and take appropriate actions to keep it elevated so that you remain positive and focused.

Becoming aware of your frequency is as simple as noticing your moods and as complicated as examining it through in-depth study. While both methods have their place, I tend to lean toward fast, simple, and effective techniques that I can do on the go. Here’s an example.

Let’s say you woke up in a great mood. Then, you get ready for work and realize you’re out of toothpaste. So, you’ll just use mouthwash and stop for toothpaste; but, you’re out of mouthwash, too. Okay, chewing gum will work. But you can’t find even one stick of gum. So you wash your mouth out with a wet toothbrush. You’re heading out the door and suddenly you can’t find your keys; you spend twenty minutes looking for them. Now you’re late and you have bad breath. You get in the car and it needs gas; another delay. Then you get caught in multiple traffic jams. Man, you just can’t catch a break today, can you? Frustrated and irritable, you stop and buy toothpaste and a travel toothbrush. Once you get to work, you brush your teeth in the bathroom sink. You feel a little better now that you’ve cleaned your teeth. As your morning progresses, your mood goes from one of tight frustration to an even keel as you settle into the rhythm of your job and begin focusing on your work.

Frequency is often shown through our moods and emotions. When things are going bad, our frequency naturally tends to lower. That doesn’t mean it always has to be this way. Once you’re aware, you can purposefully keep your frequency elevated. How could you do this in the above example? When you feel your frequency dropping, you could start a shopping list for the things you need. Instead of letting it frustrate you, take positive action through creating the list. Make a mental note to put your keys in one spot so you can find them easily and to fill up your car with gas more often. There’s not a lot you can do about the traffic, so give your boss a call and say you’ll be there soon. Don’t allow aggravation to make you drive recklessly, but instead, use this time to plan how you will get your work done in the most effective manner once you arrive on the job.

Life is full of frustrations and challenges, but if you look at these situations positively and make constructive plans or take action to keep a cheerful outlook during them, you’re reducing stress and raising your frequency along the way.
