Using the Abraham-Hicks Emotional Guidance Scale to Raise Your Vibration
How to become an absolute magnet for your desires.
Abraham-Hicks is one of the most influential spiritual teachers I have come across to date. Describing themselves as “a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension" and channeled through the teaching of Esther Hicks, Abraham has shared metaphysical knowledge with us that is truly life-changing.
What is the Emotional Guidance Scale?
We are all souls having a temporary human experience in a body, and as such we each feel different emotions. Abraham has conjured a scale of emotions ranging from the lowest vibration (22. fear, grief, depression, despair, powerlessness) to the highest vibration (1. joy, appreciation, empowerment, freedom, love) which we can utilise to guide us in our manifestation practice.
Here is the scale from highest vibration to the lowest:
4. Positive Expectation/Belief
11. Overwhelment (feeling overwhelmed)
So what does this have to do with manifesting?
The idea that manifesting is about attracting material items is, in my opinion, false. Of course, that is exactly what we set out to do when we are trying to manifest a new car, a relationship, a business or job opportunity, a ring, those new shoes - whatever it may be!
But there is something that we know to be true (and if you haven't quite figured this out yet, I hope this skips years of trial and error for you) and that is, happiness is not and cannot be found externally.
We are beings of desire, always wanting something new, and once we get it, we want something else, and the cycle continues as we are consistently feeling unfulfilled and left wondering 'why didn't this bring me the happiness I was searching for?'
Manifesting isn't about receiving material items, but rather it is about achieving a feeling.
Do you really want that job promotion? Or do you want to feel abundant and successful?
Do you really want that relationship? Or do you want to feel loved and supported?
Do you really want that car? Or do you want to feel luxurious and free?
The secret to manifesting, is feeling good.
Gabrielle Bernstein's teachings have in many ways influenced and shaped my own manifestation practice, and if there is one thing Gabby has taught me, it's that it feels good to feel good.
But how often do we let ourselves feel good? How often do we sit in those high vibrational feelings of love? Appreciation? Joy? Empowerment? Freedom?
In my experience: not often enough.
But here's the thing my powerful friend, when you FEEL good, you become a powerful magnet for your desires. When you are having fun, connecting with your inner child and doing all of the things that make YOU feel free, empowered, loved and in a state of appreciation and joy, that my friend, is where the magic happens.
You see, I have created and sold multiple different programs since launching my business as a manifestation and mindset coach, but I'm yet to share with you my manifestation 'fails' (aka lessons). So I'm going to take this opportunity to share a comparison between two different program launches, one that 'failed' and one that ended up even better than I imagined.
My 'failed' launch and how I repelled my manifestation
When I launched the first Round of my (at the time new) 8 week manifestation program, Authenticity Unlocked, I set a goal to manifest 10 excited, dedicated, invested humans who were ready for transformation into the course.
I had already run successful programs prior to that, and felt that my community was engaged and ready for what I had to share. Within the first 3 hours of launching, I sold the first spot! It was AMAZING.
Then, my ego took over from that moment forwards dripping with fear and desperation. At the time, I had just quit my 9-5 and I was working in my business full-time, so this was the perfect opportunity for my ego to sell me fear-based stories like:
That was a fluke, nobody else will want to join.
Who would want to work with you, when there are so many other spiritual teachers out there?
Why should anyone invest in your program? You're not even 100% 'fixed' yourself.
You're just going to fail, you won't make enough money this month.
These stories, in addition to me neglecting my spiritual practices and my own teachings (my daily meditation, visualisation and journaling), as well as my fear that marketing the program would only repel people away from me, resulted in over 25 people applying for the program - but nobody else signed up. My energy was fearful and low-key desperate (have you ever been attracted to someone who is desperate? Uhhhhh no! Of course not. Bad vibe alert.)
After the program had started, I realise that at NO point during this launch did I have any fun whatsoever. I was, for two whole weeks, stuck in a state of fear and resistance, with no self-belief that I could attract any more clients into the program.
This is why I constantly remind my clients that our beliefs are self-fulfilling prophecies. When you believe you can or cannot have something - you are right.
This 'failed' launch was one of my biggest lessons that I could not be more grateful for! It is so clear to see, that I was vibrating at the lowest possible frequency of fear, insecurity, doubt, unworthiness and powerlessness. No wonder I couldn't attract my high vibe tribe! I wasn't even close to the feelings of appreciation, joy or freedom.
The successful launch of Round 2! A state of receiving.
After we finished Round 1, I knew I had to take a completely new and improved approach to Round 2. This time, I knew I had to make fun my number 1 priority.
So every single day, I danced as I visualised the incredible 10 humans that would join me on the Round 2 adventure. I meditated everyday, I sat in the feeling of already having those 10 signups, I moved my body with love, I appreciated the transformations before they even happened, I appreciated the abundance, the dedication, the investment, the excitement and the fulfillment, before I even announced the launch.
I knew that the secret to manifesting is feeling good, vibrating at a high frequency, putting in the work and trusting the Universe' plan.
Even in moments of doubt, I reminded myself that this was already mine. These people needed me to guide them along their journey, and I was ready to step up, lead and do what I was born to do.
The day before Round 2 started, I had 6 people in the program, and I knew that the other special 4 humans were last-minute people (just like I am!). I trusted, and I believed in my heart and soul that they were on their way. Just like that, on the day we were to get started, 4 people reached out to me to sign up!
"Chloe, I've been following you for over a year now, I'm ready to do this!"
"Hey Chloe, is it too late to book in a Discovery call?"
"Chloe, I've been looking at this program since you first announced it, I think I'm supposed to do it!"
"I'd love some more information about this program, I feel really called to join."
BOOM. Thank you Universe! I smiled from ear-to-ear that entire day, jumping on Discovery call after Discovery call, connecting with the people who were excited, ready and dedicated. The final human that invested literally signed up at 6:30pm, which is when the program began! Let me tell you, that first Masterclass was by far THE best I have ever spoken, taught and felt during a session, the vibes were infectious and it ended up being a near 3 hour call!
I knew that my energy of love, appreciation, service and joy is what made it all come together so perfectly.
What can I do to raise my vibration?
In every single day, every moment, in each decision, I want you to ask yourself this simple question;
What can I do to get closer to love, joy, empowerment, freedom and appreciation?
It could be jumping on a trampoline, drinking your favourite smoothie, sitting in the sunshine, taking the morning or night off for yourself to simply be. It could be making love with your partner (by far my favourite way to get closer to love), or an 'I love you' message to a close friend, it could be writing, painting, drawing, running, swimming, laughing, drinking, eating, moving, creating, editing, listening, driving, riding, smiling - there are no limits.
Just know that when you have fun, your desires flow to you with ease, with grace, with flow, with magnitude, with passion and with faith.
Whatever you want is already yours. That is the magical power of our Universe and the way it has been designed to guide us as spiritual beings of human desire.
Allow your life to be easy, fun and effortless; the way it was designed to be.
