RAISE YOUR VIBE
What gets you high… other than a buckin’ bronc?
Perhaps, more importantly; what keeps you high? Where do you set your vibe; low or high? Or, do you just let it happen? Or do you allowing others to set it for you? How do you feel most of the time; are you up or down or just blah mediocre.
Let me talk in terms of ‘we’ rather than ‘you’ since we all have the same emotions, its just a matter of how we allot and apply them by what we think and do.
Are we good with how we feel, or do we want to crank the dial to something higher, more exciting, and joyful? And yet, that's not always easy... life keeps happening. But are we going to allow life make us feel disempowered and disenfranchised, or are we going to rise above the fray?
All emotions emanate from one of two polarities: fear or love. That’s all there is; all else is on the continuum between these opposites, configurations of thought patterns that make us feel what we feel, be that good or bad.
So many of us in this world remain trapped in their fears, (COVID masks, anyone?). If we live in fear, its because we don’t love. Out of love comes trust, believing it’s a benevolent universe no matter what happens and ultimately works out for good, even in the “shadow of the valley of death.”
But we are here to overcome adversity rather than cower to whatever threat we happen to imagine after listening to negative people and the MSM. It seems that’s what the ego phantom wishes for us all… to keep our vibe down. That way, it stays in control, not us.
On the Hawkins Scale of Consciousness, fear is far down the negative side of the fulcrum along with shame, guilt, anger, judgement, pride, etc. In fact, all these negative emotions are qualities of fear and how it manifests itself in our lives.
Anyway, let’s not dwell on that; you can do a muscle (kinesiology) test to prove these calibrations since the universal field of consciousness does not lie. It’s the same for everyone. For more information on what this is all about; see my blog post. https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/how-conscious-are-you
Okay, now the good part… How to get our vibe up where we can remain at peace in joy and happiness.
First, we need to examine everything that influences our lives, so we know what is causing us to feel as we do. If it’s unhappiness, we can be sure there’s a lower vibe causing us to feel bad. Some of these influences might not seem easy to change, such as ‘down-draft’ relationships we find ourselves stuck with. If so, it might be time to say good-bye to these emotional life-suckers and find friends that draw us up, or at least not bring us down. (Ever known anyone like that?)
One thing is for certain; once our vibe goes up, we will annoy the hell out of them, and they won’t even want to be around us. Or, to look at it another way, our light will hurt their darkened eyes. Think of Plato’s cave in his REPUBLIC classic… the cave dwellers preferred to remain in the dark cave because the outside sunlight hurt their unenlightened eyes.
So enough philosophizing, let’s get down to some specifics. What do we allow into our lives that raises or lowers our conscious vibe? That might take some introspection and reflection to determine.
But let’s start with music. What kind of music do we enjoy? If it has angry, judgemental lyrics, then maybe we need to try listening to something more uplifting by cultivating new music tastes that communicate a high vibe feeling. Observe how the music feels when listening to it. It might be moody, even melancholy, but if it resonates as meaningful, that too can be a good vibe.
It doesn’t all have to be Handle’s Messiah, but that’s a good start… excellent actually. I recommend Dimash, the best singer in the world, bar none, who can sing in six octaves in many styles, primarily pop/classic. Go to my blog post on him to see and hear what I mean. If you have an ear for high vibe music, he will raise your vibe like no one else. https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/beauty-splendor-and-truth
Don’t get me wrong, though, I enjoy almost all genres of music, provided the lyrics, or cacophonous rhythms don’t provoke negative feelings by grating on my nerves. Only creative harmony raise my inner vibe, but each to their own.
Let me get personal and ask what kind of movies do you enjoy? If you like horror, ask yourself why. Is it because it resonates with a low vibe frequency fear vibe in you that you find entertaining. But if you want your spirit to ascent to a higher plane, find something that inspires you.
The same goes for books. Don’t read trash. Garbage in; garbage out! You don’t have to read my ELYSIUM’S PASSAGE novel series to boost your intellectual vibe. However, if these appeal to you, and I hope they do, they’ve been known to raise various reader’s vibes higher than the cowboy in the air.
At least they do for me, but then I’m slightly biased. Of course, you could do a muscle test on the series and find how the series calibrates on the scale of consciousness… I’d be interested in knowing what you get.
What kind of food do you eat? How does it make you feel? Listen to your body; it wants to feel good so that you can feel its healthy, natural vibe.
Do you enjoy nature and how often to do you go for walks or bike rides in it? The more you do, the more it might raise your spirits to feel good again. Stand in the grass in your bare feet for five or ten minutes and see what happens. It’s easier to reach for the stars if your feet remain grounded.
How about humour to lift your spirits? We all love to laugh, so find funny movies, books or people to lift your spirits.
Another suggestion: Many people find pets raise their spirits. Especially dogs that love to give and receive affection.
Perhaps what’s most determinant to our overall happiness is how we respond to others. Are we judgemental, gossipy, spiteful, contentious, jealous, angry, resentful? Do we feel like we’re a victim, entitled to what others have even when we’re not? If so, we are coming from fear rather than love. Do we pray for your enemies, or do we curse them? If we, by God’s grace, transmute our ego fears to love, we will become free.
Lastly, maintain an attitude of gratitude and appreciation as much as possible. If you want some inspiration for this, read my post on ‘Sowing Happy Seeds of Gratitude,’ it might help inspire you. https://digitalbloggers.com/book-reviews/sowing-happy-seeds-of-gratitude
Try to get in the habit of writing your ‘gratitudes’ every morning by going within to identify whatever brings you joy or appreciation. Often these are things we take for granted such as your friends and family, your home, your vehicle, food in the fridge, etc. Or, perhaps something that’s just happened, happening or about to happen; even ordinary things like the sun shining or rain falling. Maybe the cup of coffee you are drinking.
Get creative and do this every day, and you will be off to a happy start by raising your vibe. We attract good things by using the magnet of gratitude and appreciation. Keep setting the dial a few notches higher until you get yourself up where you wish to remain most of the time. (Without having to come down like the cowboy.)
What influences our emotions will determine where our vibe point rests, but it’s up to us what we allow into our lives and how we respond. If we want to get higher and happier, then we will need to work on our attitude. That might take a while, but we can’t do it alone without the support of those who are as high or higher than us. Seek them out and all influences that can raise your conscious vibes. In other words: CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE!!
The sad part about this is that few are willing to celebrate life. Too many are content wallowing in misery, just as G.I. Gurdjieff once stated after spending a lifetime of observing humanity.
Be the exception. Be happy. Do not let your ego-fear complex talking you out of it by settling for misery. Move your consciousness to a high vibe where you will feel on top of life. After all, you consist of god-essence, and it really would be a shame to live as anything less than what you are.
There is a Psalm written: Guard your heart more than any treasure, for it is the Source of all life. The heart is your affections, do let them contaminate your life with low vibes. We are living in a world that has been needlessly seized by fear, nothing could be worse for us. Do all you can to counter the disease of fear with what will raise you up. But that is another topic for another blog.
Despite all our adversities, we’re here to experience life, so let’s make it a happy one. It’s our choice. GOOD VIBRATIONS or bad vibrations. Love or Fear
SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE
The Elysium's Passage series begins with a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

VIDEO INTRODUCTION (ATTEMPT) TO SERIES
The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"
“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of
God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
