How do reading vibrations work?

Think about this: Have you ever found yourself in a situation of unknown social territory? Maybe you're meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time or you have an important work presentation.

Whatever the case may be, if you could know how people are feeling and what they're thinking, would you want to? Fortunately, you can learn how to read vibrations and channel this powerful skill.

Reading the vibrations in a room is really just reading the energy of the room. It's tuning in to the collective energy. Does it feel good and welcoming or not so much?

You can also get specific and tune into the vibrations of a person, upcoming event, or whatever will be used for the highest good of all.

Reading vibrations must be used respectfully and with good intentions.

You will not receive clear answers if your intent is to cause harm to another. This skill also only works if you have an open heart.

Is your heart open? Are you coming from a place of love so you can successfully read vibrational energy?

You've probably heard by now how important meditation is.

One of the benefits of meditation is the discovery of self. You recognize what your energy feels like. This is important if you want to feel another person’s energy.

There's no way around this: You need to meditate and discover how you feel.

Tune into your "heart space."

A great trick to being in an open heart space is to sit in a quiet space and think about a happy memory.

You can also think about someone you love or something you are grateful for. This opens up your heart and allows you to tune into the heart space of others.

You are open to receiving the good stuff in life, including what's a good fit for you.

You can strengthen your practice by asking the Universe, your angels, and your guides to help you.

Working with love in your heart allows you to receive messages that are helpful for all involved.

Practice on a friend's energy field. 

Now that you know what you feel like, and what open heart energy is, you're ready to practice on a person’s energy field.

Ask a friend if you can try tuning into their energy. Sometimes, it helps to take a few deep breaths together. Now, ask your guides and angels to help you receive messages.

As your friend enjoys their happy memory, you need to go to your happy memory.

Now, shift your awareness to your friend’s energy. Can you feel the subtle difference in your energy compared to your friend’s energy?

After tuning into your friend’s energy, what do you feel? With your eyes closed, do you see anything?

Do you hear anything? Do you feel like you have knowledge of something? Do you feel a tightness or any sensation in your body?

Share everything you saw, heard, or felt with your friend. This takes a lot of courage and you're learning a new skill that requires a lot of practice.

Remember, one of the most important parts of this is knowing what your personal energy feels like — this is your energy when you're calm and grounded.

Now that you really know what you feel like and maybe how you receive energetic messages, you can practice on more people. 

There's no room for judgment when reading energy.

It's also worth noting that all of this work is done with an objective and open mind.

The Universe has a lovely way of sharing clear messages to open minds and hearts.

"Read" the energy of an event on your calendar.

You can also use this method when tuning in to an event. How does it feel to you?

I use this all the time when making plans. If it feels like it's open with a lot of breathing room, I like it. If I feel constricted or some other undesirable sensation, it's not a good fit for me.

We all have intuitive abilities to help us move thru life with more ease and grace.

Over the past few months, I've witnessed amazing intuitive abilities unfold in the classes I teach.

In the beginning, people would start every reading unsure of their skills. With practice, they have gained accuracy and confidence.

Most of the students will use it to enhance their everyday life, some want to build it into their business. And you can, too.
