Emotions shape the human experience. From our actions and choices to relationships and overall well-being, emotions have a big impact on the way we perceive and interact with the world. But what if these emotions go beyond just the way we feel? The concept of harnessing emotional frequencies states that they do.
This concept refers to the vibrational energy emitted by a range of human emotions. Each emotion, ranging from grief and anger to joy, love, and gratitude, carries a unique vibrational frequency – like a signature. Lower frequencies are associated with what we think of as more negative emotions, while higher-frequency emotions are more positive and uplifting.
Throughout this blog, you’ll learn more about the theory behind emotional frequencies, how to identify and name your emotions using the Emotional Frequency Scale, and how to raise your emotional frequency to create more abundance, joy, and fulfillment in your life.
The Theory Behind Emotional Frequencies
While many visionary leaders have contributed to our understanding of emotional frequencies, it’s most commonly associated with the work of Dr. David R Hawkins, a psychiatrist, author, and expert in the field of human consciousness. Hawkins introduced the idea that emotions are energy, each with a unique vibrational frequency. These frequencies determine how we perceive and experience life.
The theory of emotional frequencies is closely related to the Law of Vibration. This law is a metaphysical principle that suggests that everything in the universe – from plants and animals to the chair you’re sitting in – absorbs, retains, and emits energy in the form of vibration. What Dr Hawkins theorized was that this concept goes a step further by also applying to our emotions.
Imagine the universe like a symphony with each person, plant, animal, item, and emotion playing a unique and identifiable note. This idea of vibrational frequencies is key to understanding the deep connection between our internal emotional state and our external experiences. When those things are in harmony it allows for a more positive, joyful way of living.
Identifying Your Emotions With The Emotional Frequency Scale
Developed by Dr Hawkins, the Emotional Frequency Scale is a tool that categorizes emotions based on their vibrational energy. At the top of the scale, there are high-frequency emotions like love, joy, and gratitude, which are associated with positivity, abundance, and well-being. These emotions elevate our state of mind and can attract more positive experiences and relationships into our lives.
At the other end of the scale, there are the low-frequency emotions. These include anger, fear, and grief which are linked to negativity, stress, and limitation. Remaining in a low-frequency emotional state can hinder your personal growth and have a negative impact on everything from your personal relationships to physical health.
By understanding how this scale works and identifying where you fall currently, you can make the conscious decision to shift to higher-frequency emotions leading to many positive benefits. To better understand the Emotional Frequency Scale, here are some examples of low, transitional, and high-frequency emotions.
Shame: Shame is the lowest emotion on the Emotional Frequency Scale and comes with feelings of humiliation, low self-worth, and powerlessness. People experiencing this vibrational frequency may isolate themselves, avoiding connection and personal growth due to the belief that they don’t deserve better.
Grief: Grief is the low-frequency emotion associated with feelings of sadness, emptiness, or despair. It can feel like a heavy cloud, immobilizing you, or making it difficult for you to actively engage or move forward in life.
Anger: Anger is another low-frequency emotion, but unlike shame or guilt, anger creates action. It can manifest as intense, destructive energy if left unchecked leading to conflicts, damaged relationships, and resentment. But if channeled correctly, anger can lead to productive change that can help you move up the scale toward higher-frequency emotions.
Courage: Courage is the first emotion where we see a shift from low-frequency energy to higher-frequency energy. This is the transitional emotion where you begin to feel empowered, allowing you to face challenges with hope and determination.
Acceptance: Acceptance is the transitional emotion that allows you to fully embrace the current moment. By letting go of that resistance you can begin to move forward with freedom, unburdened by the weight of the past.
Love: Like most high-frequency emotions, love leads to positive personal growth. It can be a driving force for acts of kindness and compassion, nurturing a profound sense of connection with others.
Joy: Joy is often associated with delight, enthusiasm, and positive energy. This high-frequency emotion promotes feelings of happiness and a sense of lightness from within.
Enlightenment: At the top of the Emotional Frequency Scale is enlightenment. This is the highest frequency emotion leading to a state of inner peace and wisdom. This elevated state of awareness signifies a deep spiritual awakening that offers clarity and understanding.
The Benefits Of Knowing And Raising Your Emotional Frequency
Using the Emotional Frequency Scale to understand your current state of being is only the first step. By understanding where you currently fall, you can begin to make the conscious decision to raise your frequency. This energy shift brings with it a variety of benefits.
As you ascend toward a higher frequency state, you may experience improved health, lower stress levels, increased self-awareness, and strengthened relationships. You’ll no longer be controlled by your emotions, rather you’ll be in control of them empowering you to navigate life’s challenges with intention.
Beyond your own personal benefits, the positive effects of higher emotional frequencies ripple outward, impacting people around you. You become a beacon of positivity and inspiration, naturally drawing other high-frequency people and situations into your life.
Emotional Frequencies And Your Health
Raising your emotional frequency can have significant benefits on both your physical and mental health. Higher frequencies are associated with reduced stress, improved immune function, and enhanced mental well-being. As you elevate your emotional state, you’ll notice increased energy, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and an overall sense of peace and fulfillment.
The Emotional Ripple Effect
Like dropping a pebble into a pond, raising your own emotional frequency can set in motion a powerful ripple effect that positively impacts those around you. Your uplifting presence, optimism, and positive energy can inspire the people you interact with.
However, the same is true for low-frequency emotions. If you surround yourself with people or situations that are operating at a lower frequency, you’ll begin to feel that pull on your own emotions. This makes it even more important to identify and acknowledge these emotional frequencies so you can recognize how they show up in your life.
The Law Of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is the principle that like attracts like. This means that by raising your own vibrational frequency, you’re more likely to attract experiences, opportunities, and individuals who match your elevated state of being. But again, this also applies to lower frequencies. If you’re operating at a lower frequency, such as anger for example, you’ll attract people and situations with the same angry energy.
Emotional Frequencies As A Path To Self-Awareness
By gaining a deeper understanding of your emotional states and the factors that influence them, you can build more awareness around who you are and how you want to live your life. This self-awareness empowers you to live with intention, make informed decisions, and act consciously rather than being controlled by your emotions.
How To Raise Your Emotional Frequency
We’ve discovered what emotional frequencies are, why it’s important to be aware of your emotional frequencies, and the benefits of cultivating a high-frequency emotional state. But how do you actually achieve those higher-frequency vibrations?
Before you can begin to raise your frequency, you have to deeply understand where you currently fall on the emotional frequency scale. This means understanding not only your current state of being but also which emotional frequencies are above and below you. Once you’ve identified and acknowledged your current frequency, you can begin to take intentional steps to move toward higher-frequency emotions. Below are some practical things you can do to raise your emotional frequency.
Practices To Raise Your Emotinal Frequency
1. Practice Gratitude: Gratitude is a powerful tool for improving your mental health, creating a positive outlook, and moving up the emotional frequency scale. Each day, take a moment to reflect on the things you’re grateful for.
2. Meditate: By calming your mind and connecting with a higher state of consciousness you can begin to let go of stress, anxiety, and low-frequency emotions.
3. Energy Healing: Things like Reiki or acupuncture can help release blocked energy and promote emotional healing. These therapies can realign your energy centers, increasing your vibrational frequency, and creating space for personal growth.
4. Eliminate low-frequency situations and relationships: Evaluate the patterns in your life and begin to distance yourself from situations and people that cause you stress, anger, fear, or other low-frequency emotions. Focus on cultivating relationships and experiences that uplift you.
5. Exercise: Physical activity not only improves your health but also raises your emotional frequency. Exercise releases endorphins leading to feelings of happiness, reduced stress, and overall positivity.
6. Nourish your Body: Healthy foods fuel your body and mind, promoting higher energy levels, lower stress, and elevating your vibrational frequency. Consume nutrient-rich foods like organic fruits and vegetables that support your overall health and well-being.
7. Reconnect with your Inner Child: Think about the things that brought you joy as a child and actively participate in playful activities that help you reconnect with that part of yourself. This can help release creativity, spontaneity, and joy into your life.
8. Engage in high-vibe activities: Participate in activities that resonate with those high-frequency emotions. This might include listening to uplifting music, engaging in a hobby you enjoy, or volunteering to help others.
