✨ how to send good vibes! ✨

In the spiritual, metaphysical, and witchy communities, you’ll hear a lot of people say things like “sending love” or “sending good vibes”! fun fact, most people don’t know how to actually do that haha. with a little bit of practice and basic understanding of energy, it’s actually very easy to send simple healing energy to someone. before we jump in, it’s important to note the ethics of energy work. A L W A Y S ask for permission before doing any kind of energy work on someone.  even if you’re only sending positivity! there’s a difference between praying for someone/keeping them in your thoughts and actually sending them energy. you never know how your energy will affect them. maybe they’re not ready to heal. or maybe they’re doing their own healing and your energy might throw theirs out of balance. only do energy work on people who are open to it! 🌙  ✨✨

  1. set an intention of positivity. this is vv important! make sure you make it clear that you only intend to send positivity. I like to say something along the lines of: “may this energy be filled with nothing but love and light” or “my intention is to send only that which is pure”.if you want to send bad vibes, just set the opposite intention (not that I recommend sending anything negative lmao)
  2. get into a meditative state and positive mindset! you can’t effectively send someone good energy if you’re not in a good mental state, first. take some time to breath, meditate, listen to some relaxing music, eat, etc.
  3. visualize that the person is in front of you. Imagine every detail of their appearance as if they’re physically in the room with you. it might take a while to create this image so take your time and breathe through it. don’t rush!
  4. imagine a ball of bright light glowing and expanding from the center of your heart. this is referred to as your heart chakra! feel free to play around with different colors while visualizing. green symbolizes healing energy, pink is the energy of love, and white is cleansing energy. these are the main colors associated with the heart chakra.
  5. next, hold your hand to your heart and imagine your hand absorbing that healing/loving/cleansing energy. at this point, you might physically feel a pulsing or warmness in your hands. make sure you’re still breathing and taking your time!
  6. extend your hand towards the person you’re visualizing and imagine that the energy is flowing through your palms and into their heart center. the pulsing sensation may get stronger at this point! If you don’t feel a pulse, it’s fine. I promise it’s still working!
  7. keep sending the energy until all of that light is drained from your palm!
  8. to close out the session, visualize a waterfall of white energy washing over you and replenishing your energy.

congratulations, you just completed some basic energy work bby! there are so many ways to go about sending energy but this is my favorite way. It’s quick (should take 10-15 minutes) and perfect for beginners!

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are simply toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us

Hey, stop scrolling for a min

sit with me. let’s take a breath. put the phone away for a while 

be here now. remember everything will be okay

every soul has purpose and potential. you’re here for a reason do not forget

if you feel lost, talk to me or open up to someone you trust

if you feel unloved, know that I love you. each and every one of you.

human, animal, plant. i feel love. love is powerful. do not forget

send love out to the universe it’ll return ten fold. 

feel compassion and understanding  

even for those totally blinded by their thoughts, that take ill action against others

don’t fight them with fire, it will only grow the hate.

love is the only way to true happiness 

Be careful when acting on impulses, for that’s what they are; an impulse. They are often generated so quickly that they make it straight to our first line of consciousness without any chance of contemplation. Handle them delicately, for they have the potential to spread like wild fire through the intricacy of our minds.

You have to voluntarily examine your life, not condemn it, not say this is right or this is wrong but look. When you do look in that way, you will find that you look with eyes that are full of affection—not with condemnation, not with judgement, but with care. You look at yourself with care and therefore with immense affection—and it is only when there is great affection and love that you see the total existence of life.

J. Krishnamurti

When you breathe, breathe deeply. Allow for the purest of lights to enter your body and fill every nook and cranny. Allow for it to seep so deeply into your core that you begin to resonate with it. It warms you, on the inside. It supports you. This light, being so radiant, sits within your very being, healing and cleansing all within its path. And truly, just be. Exist. Treasure the beauty of the light that now sits so deeply within you. It’s here.

If you have no love—do what you will, go after all the gods on earth, do all the social activities, try to reform the poor, enter politics, write books, write poems—you are a dead human being. Without love your problems will increase, multiply endlessly. And with love, do what you will, there is no risk, there is no conflict. Then love is the essence of virtue.

J. Krishnamurti

Yes, one can read the words. But one can also read in between the words, through the words, past the words, and even further beyond them.
