Tuning In To The Right Frequency

I spent a major portion of my life looking for other people’s approval, even though what I was doing felt very satisfying.

I knew I was being sincere and authentic, yet I somehow needed assurance that everyone really saw me that way. I think we all seek approval to some degree or another. Facebook figured this out a long time ago, which is why it introduced the ‘Like’ button!

And then one fine day, it struck me that no one really could ever see me the way I see myself, so it was always going to be a futile exercise waiting for that seemingly easy, yet elusive moment to ever happen. At that moment I made a conscious decision to cut loose from this bondage and float free.

I guess there were a few realisations that had to lock into place in my understanding, which then formed a solid enough platform of ‘knowing ‘for me.

I had just come upon the suggestion that we in our physical experience are like radios, transmitting and receiving, whether we are consciously aware of it or not. This was a fascinating idea for me, because I had never heard anything like this before.  And like a radio receiver, we are capable of receiving different frequencies. This would mean that we have the potential to tune our personal frequency to achieve a different point of attraction.

I was fascinated by the idea of being able to actually create a reality, rather than get something by default!

Well, it turns out that our conscious thinking mind determines the frequency we are set at, at any given moment in time, by the thoughts we think. That made a lot of sense to me, because I then began to notice that things seemed to happen in keeping with the mood or frequency that I happened to be on.

On days that I was grumpy, I noticed I was meeting up with a lot of grumpy people and on the days I was feeling upbeat, a lot of interesting experiences came my way, which pretty much took my breath away.

This observation helped me go one step further.  I realised that making a conscious effort at tuning my own frequency could really influence what would be drawn into my experience. Could it really be that simple?

While the theory of it is sound, it is a little more difficult (but certainly not impossible!) to achieve that practical terms. And that is because of the very nature of Law of Attraction – That which is like unto itself is drawn.

Each progressive thought has to be in vibrational range of the preceding one. Therefore, one still has to go through the metaphoric ‘turning of the dial’ to get to a higher frequency. You can’t just say, ‘I’m happy’ and expect things to shift instantly—the vibrational frequency has to gather enough momentum to be strong enough, to begin the process of attraction.

While a positive outlook is undeniably a good frequency to reach for, I’ve found that most people talk about ‘positive thinking’ without really understanding the actual dynamics. It’s more than just positive sounding words; it’s the actual feeling behind it.

For example saying the words ‘I am happy’ when one is most certainly not happy, serves no purpose, because the frequency really has not changed. And the same principle applies to any subject – the frequency of where you currently are and where you want to be are very different. And bridging that gap through a conscious exercise of thoughts is all the tuning that is needed.

Everyone’s journey is different and therefore there is not ‘one size that fits all’.

In my case, I seem to have an in-built positive attitude that serves me extremely well. My stumbling block was allowing other people’s expectations to get in the way of my own. That almost always would cause me angst and would get me to lower my frequency and leave me rather confused. Fortunately now that I understand the process, I’m far more aligned with what I want rather than what other people want of me!

I’ll admit it – it’s not all that easy to ignore what people think, do or say, especially if you’re a keen observer like I am. But there are simple tools I’ve discovered that make the tuning much easier. I found these simple thoughts that were general enough and reasonable enough to play with when my dial gets stuck:

  • “Everyone thinks differently”
  • “I get to choose my thoughts and they get to choose theirs”
  • “No one needs to be right, but we all need to figure out our way”
  • “My way doesn’t need to be their way”

And within no time at all I can tune myself to who I really am —letting everyone else  be ‘who they be’, while I ‘be who I be’.

And the world is a better place … or at least my world is a better place!

  1. I LOVE this! I’ve always thought ‘I can do WHATEVER I set my mind to’…. But most of the people in my life had opposite opinions like ‘life is hard’ and ‘making money is like being on a giant hamster wheel.’ I’d wake up with the intentions of kicking the day’s ass, but come across these negative people who were trying to pop my positivity bubble. It’s insane how much my life changed when I decided that they’re more than welcome to feel their own, negative assumptions about life. I’ll continue to believe life is abundant and glorious.

    1. I’m so glad you liked my post! I guess all of us come across plenty of naysayers and the trick is to not care about what they think! (It took me a while to come to this realisation myself🙄)
      They certainly have the liberty of directing their own lives any way they choose, don’t they? I totally agree with you that life is abundant and glorious.


  2. Gail,

    I really value this article! One thing is true for me in that I always seem to come across like minded people when its needed. So, thanks for being here. I needed to read this.

    I’d like to share something particular that I gain in reading what your presented here.

    In the last part of your article when you listed the tools you use to change your frequency in relation to others’ influence that can get your dial stuck –

    You said, “I get to choose my thoughts and they get to choose theirs”

    The flow in my reading was pretty smooth up until I read that. I know what you meant to say I think…that other people get to choose their own thoughts.

    My mind latched on to this statement as meaning “I get to choose my own thoughts and they (those thoughts I’m having) get to choose their own thoughts.”

    How absolutely true that has been for me pretty much my whole life. I guess I’ve made it a habit to let my thoughts run wild, by this my feelings are in constant wank-a-doodle all sorta of nuts. I think a lot…and feel a lot.

    Of everything you said, I think this helped me the most where I am right now with life; in frustration and sometimes even despair. The whole article was fabulous, but for me, this was the real gem I needed.

    That tool, Gail…is exactly what I needed to consider today. So thanks!

    Be well and in peace

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely and sincere feedback. It means a lot to me that you got the total essence of what I was trying to say, and I so appreciate you stopping by ❤️

      I re-read what I had written and was about to edit it for clarity, because you’re right – it could be read a bit differently from what I’d originally intended.

      But then to my delight, I realised it was pretty much a Freudian slip. (I tend to run everything through Law of Attraction), so I’ll explain what I mean:

      You interpreted my statement, “I get to choose my thoughts and they get to choose theirs” as “I get to choose my own thoughts and they (those thoughts I’m having) get to choose their own thoughts.”

      Guess what? I think you’re actually spot on, in your interpretation!!!! Because of the way Law of Attraction operates, those thoughts actually DO choose their own thoughts – based on frequency!!!

      Wow, I hadn’t really seen that myself and I think I gained a bit more clarity myself, thanks to your thoughtful feedback!
