15 Things That Lower Your Vibration

There’s so much focus nowadays on raising your vibration, and for good reason. But did you know that it’s just as helpful to figure out the things that lower your vibration?

In this blog post, we’re going to deep dive into the 15 things that lower your vibrational frequency.

That way, you’ll be able to recognize the things that could be holding you back (and take steps to change them), leading you further along your path of spiritual growth and positive energy!


The secret to raising your vibration

Are you ready to learn the top-secret for raising your vibration energy, which means you’ll be able to manifest faster and easier?

It’s something that not many people are talking about (but oh, if they knew it, they would!)

It’s that you double or even triple your manifestation results when you take action on the information included in your free numerology report.

The truth is that you were born with a unique set of talents and gifts that can set you up for so much success in life — more money than you could ever imagine, deeper and richer romantic and interpersonal connections, and living a life of true purpose and passion.

And it’s all hidden neatly tucked away in your personal numerology!

BUT… the people at the top hold this information for themselves (they know about it and use it ALL THE TIME. But they don’t want regular people like you and me to know about it because then you’d access the same power they have and they’d have less for themselves!)

Surely you can imagine how plentiful and pleasurable and how much easier your life will be once you get your hands on the one thing you’ve been missing all along – can you not?

It’s obvious how having a naturally higher vibration because you’re working in alignment with the universe – can help you, right?

Do yourself a favor, fast-track your results, and get your free numerology reading now.

It’ll be the best two minutes you’ll ever spend in your life (and can help you actually get results with what you want to manifest!)

Why does my vibration matter?

Your vibration matters because it is the most important thing to keep in check.

It’s a result of your thoughts, actions, and overall energy level.

The lower it is, the more likely you are to attract negative experiences into your life – big or small – everything from car trouble to relationship troubles.

But that’s not even what matters most!

What matters most is the connection you have with the universe.

The best way for this connection to strengthen and grow is by keeping your vibration up.

Connecting with them isn’t impossible when your frequency is low – it just takes so much more effort.

Then, it’s that much harder to manifest and enjoy your life!


How do I calm my vibration?

how to raise your vibration

The first step to calming your vibration is to identify and release things that lower your vibration.

Many people make the mistake of trying to raise their energetic frequency without first removing the strongest part – vibration-lowering activities and situations!

What we’re going to do here is get your mind wrapped around what’s got you down in the first place so you can easily fix the problem.

So, here are the top 15 things that keep your vibration low.


1- Being motivated by fear

The first thing that lowers your vibration is being motivated by fear.

This could be anything from taking the first job you are offered even if it doesn’t pay enough because you’re afraid of the future, or staying in the wrong relationship because you don’t want to be alone.

This way of being, unfortunately, is a vibrational match to the physical world, but it will destroy your spirit and block your manifestations.

It’s such a block that lowers your vibration because it creates such a negative field of energy around you.

You’re settling for less than you know you deserve.

You’re confirming the message that you’re not good enough to live a higher quality life, and staying stuck in the place you’re at right now.

A better way to raise your vibration is to treat yourself as if you believe you’re worth more.

Operating from a place of love and self-worth and value sends a message to yourself, the universe, and those around you that you’re worth more.

It also allows you to live a life that is in line with your authentic self, as opposed to a life based on the fear of not being good enough.

2- Negativity

Negativity is very closely related to being motivated by fear and often accompanies it.

This can be a result of negative people who bring you down or even negative self-talk.

The more negativity there is around you – in whatever form – the lower your vibrational energies because what you want is in direct conflict with what you’re allowing into your life.

You can’t be positive and negative at the same time!

So, if you want to raise your vibration, don’t surround yourself with people who drag you down.

Limit your exposure to toxic environments, unhealthy habits, and things that lower your scale of consciousness.

Surrounding yourself with positive people and things is one of the quickest ways to raise your vibration.

3- Going against your values

If you’re not living in line with your values, you’re going to find it very difficult to raise your vibration.

This happens when you do things that don’t feel good to you or that go against what you believe in.

It’s a sign that you’re not honoring yourself and, as a result, your vibration drops.

When your vibration drops, it becomes a lot harder to attract the things you want into your life.

How do you fix this problem?

It’s not easy – but it sure is simple!

All you need to do is start living in line with what feels right and good to you.

Slow down and tap into your feelings and intuition before you say “yes” or take action as you go about your daily routines.

Much of the time we are moving so fast that we don’t actually consider what we want.

If you slow down, pay attention to yourself and honor yourself, you will avoid doing things that lower your vibration.

4- Violent TV or abrasive music

Negativity is one of the main vibrational frequencies that really lowers your vibration.

But, it’s not the only one…

Negative exposure to electronics can do it too!

Watching violent TV shows or listening to abrasive music with violent lyrics can also do it!

This type of content doesn’t allow you to feel joy and love, which are two of our most powerful vibrations.

In fact, it often has the opposite effect and can leave you feeling angry, sad, or frustrated.

If you’re looking to raise your vibration, it’s best to avoid watching violent TV shows and listening to abrasive music.

These things just don’t align with the type of vibrations you want to be surrounded by.

To solve this, try to spend more time with mother nature or take up more active hobbies like joining a yoga class or some other social sport.

This will help you manage your stress levels, give you a healthy outlook on your spiritual life and help you connect with the world around you on a deeper level.

5- Mistreating people or animals

This is a big one.

If you’re not treating people or animals with love, respect, and compassion, your vibration will drop.

It’s that simple.

When you mistreat another living being, you’re sending out a message that says you don’t value them and that they’re not important.

And, when you don’t value someone else, you decrease the chance of them valuing you back.

This goes for mistreating people as well as animals.

You might even find that if you mistreat other living beings, your vibration drops so low that it prevents the things you want from coming to you – including money and success!

But, the opposite is true too.

If you treat people and animals with love, respect, and compassion, your vibration rises so high that it increases the chance of finding the things you want in life!

6- Addictive behavior or substances

This one is pretty self-explanatory.

Addictive behavior and substances lower your vibration.

In fact, they can downright knock it down!

Not only do addictive substances and behaviors take away your energy and focus, but they can also leave you feeling depleted, anxious, and depressed.

All of which makes it much harder to raise your vibration.

If you’re looking to raise your vibration, it’s best to steer clear of addictive behavior and substances.

They will only hold you back from your goal.

7- Eating processed foods

If you eat unhealthy foods, you’ll not only feel lousy but also have trouble raising your vibration.

There are often tons of chemicals and additives in processed food that keep you feeling low energy, which makes it difficult to raise your vibration.

Not to mention the fact that this type of food doesn’t support your body in any way.

It’s not even designed to!

You might be looking for quick energy but what you get instead is a big dose of regret, guilt, and shame.

All of which again lower your vibration.

So eat real foods. Foods that do your body good. Foods that will support your goal of raising your vibration!

8- Worrying and overthinking

Worrying is one of the worst things you can do for your vibration.

I know, I know… it’s hard to not worry!

But the truth is that worrying really brings down your vibration.

You spend more time feeling anxious and tense instead of calm and peaceful.

And anxiety will only keep you from reaching your goals.

The same goes for overthinking.

If you’re constantly in your head, you’re not living in the present moment and enjoying life.

You’re only stressing yourself out and lowering your vibration in the process!

So try to let go of worry and overthinking. They don’t serve you and will only hold you back from your goal.

9- Clutter and disorganization

This is another one that’s pretty self-explanatory.

If your space is cluttered and disorganized, your vibration will be too.

Clutter and disorganization create chaos and a feeling of being out of control.

And, when you’re not in control, your vibration drops.

So if you’re looking to raise your vibration, it’s best to get rid of the clutter and create some order in your life.

It will make you feel so much better!

10- Gossiping and complaining

Gossiping is a quick way to drop your vibration.

In fact, it’s one of the biggest ways that you can lower your vibrational frequency.

When you’re gossiping about another person, you’re sending out a message that says they deserve your judgment and anger.

All you’re doing, usually, is projecting your fears and insecurities onto them (even if you don’t realize it!)

Not good for your vibration!

Complaining is similar to gossiping in that it just brings down your energy.

A much more helpful way to deal with the things that you don’t like is to take action and change them.

Taking that kind of responsibility will bring up your vibration instead of bringing it down!

11- Jealousy or envy

When you feel jealous or envious of someone, it’s a sign that your vibration is low.

These negative emotions are born from a feeling of lack.

You want what the other person has and you don’t believe that you can have it too.

This type of thinking will only keep your vibration low and it actually pushes what you want away from you.

But if you find yourself feeling jealous, don’t feel bad about yourself.

Just turn it around!

My favorite tip for managing jealousy or envy is to identify what you like or admire about the other person.

But do it in a way that makes you feel inspired.

For example, if you see someone who appears to have a better job than you, it might be tempting to feel envious.

But if you instead focus on what you like about the person’s career choice or how they are successful in their work-life, you’ll feel inspired!

This will only raise your vibration and bring more good things into your life.

12- Blaming others

I’m sure you already know just how bad this is for your vibration.

If you want to stay stuck in the past and feel miserable, this is a great way to do it!

The best thing you can do for yourself and raising your vibration is try to take responsibility for the things in your life.

Even if things are really sucky for you, you can always feel a sense of responsibility for how you respond.

This feeling of control will help you accept the ebb and flow of life, and honestly?

The universe wants this for you.

It’s 100% impossible to skate through this physical realm without any opposition.

Opposition is simply a chance for you to grow.

So, instead of allowing blame and finger-pointing to control you and lower your vibration, try to see it as a chance for you to raise your vibration and grow stronger.

13- Excessive social media

Many of us use social media to connect with friends and family.

But sometimes, we might be overdoing it on this platform.

I know I can get a little obsessed with scrolling through my newsfeed and seeing what everyone is doing (or posting).

And some research has shown that too much social media will actually lower your vibration.

The reason for this is because it can be a breeding ground for comparison and envy.

We start to feel like we’re not good enough or that our life isn’t as great as everyone else’s.

So, if you’re trying to raise your vibration, it might be helpful to limit your social media time (or at least how often you check it).

You might find that your vibe actually lifts each time you take a break from social media!

14- Judgement

If you’re constantly judging other people, it will lower your vibration.

We know that judgment is one of the most damaging things for another person’s soul.

But how about when we use judgment against ourselves?

Judging yourself lowers your vibration by limiting what you believe to be possible in life.

If you think that something is “bad” or “wrong”, it’s holding you back from allowing yourself to have it.

Instead of thinking about what’s wrong with the things you want, why not focus on your excitement for them?

It will lead to more inspiration and uplift your vibration.

15- Holding onto the past

The past does not exist!

It’s an illusion.

And it can be hard to let go of memories that bring us pain or sadness- I get it.

But holding onto anger, sadness, or other negative emotions will only keep your vibration low.

You want to move forward in life, don’t you?

Then you need to let go of the past and forgive yourself for anything that you think you did wrong.

And, if possible, try to forgive those who have hurt you in the past as well.

This will free up your energy and allow you to raise your vibration.


Final thoughts

So there you have it- 15 things that will lower your vibration.

I hope this list helps you to improve your vibration and feel more inspired every day.

If you want to raise your vibration, try to think about what it would be like for you to not engage with these activities anymore (or at least how it will improve your quality of life).

You can always find something else that will help you feel better.
