If you’ve never heard of this specific term before, “vibe” is an interesting word that is used to describe the physical, mental or emotional feeling that collectively encompasses our energy. For example, if you’re feeling good about yourself, then your vibe is on point.
My own vibe has been shaped by every significant relationship that I’ve had with friends, family and romantic partners. It’s also been influenced by what I watch on TV, read in magazines, what music I listen to and so many other factors. When my vibe was off, the way I looked at life was distorted and it affected my daily experiences.
All of us need to take steps in order to maintain a positive vibe. It’s important for everyone to go into every single day and ask, “What am I choosing to feel?”
For so long, I didn’t know how damaging it was when people devalued me because any validation they offered felt better than nothing at all. With practice, you can generate your own sense of self-worth that isn’t contingent or dependent on the approval of others or whether they treat you fairly.
It has been a long journey, I’ve made a conscious effort to love and accept myself over the years and it’s been painful and wonderful. The world we live in can make it difficult to maintain a positive vibe but here are three steps you can take every day to protect your vibe.
Maybe there will be one day, when the sun will rise and you will realise that you deserve so much more than what you’ve been settling for. Maybe one day, you’ll stand up and do what you know is right and speak your truth, proud and LOUD. Maybe one day, you’ll stop letting people treat you badly and you’ll say “NO”. When we examine what we let others do to us and compare it to what we are really worth, we become self-aware and rise in our power of accepting ourselves, even though others may have treated us as inferior. We will begin to understand and treasure our true value and the power that it holds.
When I allow myself the opportunity to just live in the moment, be alone, or spend some time away from being who or what I am expected to be, I have the ability to centre myself more fully. There are so many different ways for us to practice self-care. These practices can be anything you choose to do that will help you regain your energy, focus and balance. Some people find that meditating, exercising, doing yoga, soaking in a hot bath, journaling or listening to music are helpful practices. The key is to do whatever it takes for you to feel restored on a regular basis.

It’s very easy to look outside of yourself and other people to try and figure out how you should be feeling and what your vibe is. We often seek external validation. It’s natural; we are social animals and we want to fit in and feel like we belong but here’s the thing: our positive vibe doesn’t come from other people, it comes from within.
We have to get back to the basics. Our bodies have basic needs, so we need resources such as food, water, sleep, shelter, clean air, etc. The same goes for our minds. It has emotional needs, so we need love, compassion, validation etc. Our souls have spiritual needs, so we need meaning, purpose, growth etc. When our minds, bodies or souls are off balance, they affect how we feel. Re-aligning yourself through self-care empowers you to reach your highest potential.
Believe in yourself. Believe in what vibe you radiate. You are the only person who can make yourself feel good. When you feel good about yourself, your goal becomes all about serving the greater community. Having this clarity will give you the power to see your purpose and provide you with the strength to remain persistent in your vision, despite any external challenges that may come your way.
