Positive is essential to living a happy and fulfilling life. However, sometimes we do things, without realizing that we do them, that actually lowers our vibration and drains our energy.

Here are 10 things that you might be doing that are toxic and lowering your vibes.

1. Making decisions or doing things out of fear

Making decisions or doing things out of fear(rather than trust and love) comparing yourself to others and what they have and how great they are, complaining or engaging in gossip and drama, judging other people or yourself, worrying about the future, choosing a career based on a fear, avoiding life experiences because of a fear, altering your life due to a fear, having hidden motives and agendas, taking advantage of other people to get ahead, and wanting to be the best and the first are all forms of fear and will lower your vibrational frequency dramatically.

2. Negativity

Negativity includes having a bad attitude, a demeaning tone, looking at the worst case scenario all of the time, assuming the worst about people, thinking negative thoughts, being closed-minded, having negative beliefs, and dealing with other people's toxic energy or being in toxic environments. All in all, a negative perspective causes negative behavior patterns, so you have to pay attention to how you interact with the world in order to be able to let it all go and build better, more positive patterns.

3.Bad Language (F Word)

When we use bad language like cursing and expressing ourselves aggressively, we are emitting negative energy.  Just listen to someone when they are swearing or pay attention to yourself and notice how it sounds.  Kind of ugly and negative. Swearing is not necessary to get a point across, and it is often used as a reaction to a negative emotion such as anger and disappointment.  So if you tend to swear a lot, try to omit swear words from your conversations and see how effective you still are, and how much more respectable you sound.

4. Doing things that go against your values

When we do things that go against our values, we are going against our truth. We are being inauthentic. In other words, we are being fake. We are not being true to ourselves. And when we aren’t being true to ourselves, we aren’t aligned with the higher good either, which totally lowers your vibration.

5.Watching TV, especially of a violent nature

Ultimately, TV is mind control and is a form of conditioning. There are lots of subliminal messages on TV that program us to believe certain things about ourselves and life as a whole that are far from the truth. Even if you think you are watching an innocent film, a romantic comedy, or a lighthearted TV show, the messages you pick up from them still influence your world view at an unconscious level. 

You should stay away from violent TV programs as it activates and reinforces fear within you which conditions you to be more fearful, which obviously lowers your vibrational frequency.

6. Mistreating yourself, people, animals, or the planet

Any sort of hurtful, selfish and unconscious behavior is low vibe. When you understand that life is interconnected and that one thing affects another (the law of cause and effect), then you really don’t treat your environment, other people or yourself badly because you get that everything you do affects the big picture.

7. Mindless activities

such as browsing social media or the internet for no real purpose, doing things that don’t make you feel happy and alive, watching commercials, reality TV shows, and other mindless programs, working a job that you hate, playing violent video games, watching YouTube videos just to kill time, reading gossip magazines, engaging in drama at work, complaining about something that you can't change, and any other activities that evoke a fear based emotion and aren’t stimulating actually drain your energy, make you feel worse about yourself, and lower your vibrational frequency.

8.   Drinking alcohol

Athough alcohol might give the illusion that you feel good, it is just that, an illusion. Alcohol alters your mind and gives you an initial buzz that makes you feel great temporarily, but when it wears off, it leaves you feeling low on energy, unmotivated, irritable, and feeling like you need more of it to make you happy. It's a downward spiral into addiction.

9. Addictive behaviors

Addictions are basically an attachment to some outside source or activity to fill some inner void or emptiness. Some of these addictions are so subtle though that you probably don’t even realize how active they are in your life, and you certainly aren’t aware of the fact that you rely on them for some sort of fulfillment. 

Addictions are drinking, smoking, sex, drugs, gambling, and overeating, while some more subtle ones are watching TV, shopping, working, browsing social media, gossiping, complaining, checking phone, or any other form of distraction from reality that you do on a regular basis

10. Eating bad

Chemically enhanced, genetically modified, and highly processed foods and animal products.

Grocery stores and gas stations are full of toxic, processed foods, and mostly all restaurants, especially fast food and big chains, are full of low quality ingredients, chemically enhanced, genetically modified, and highly toxic foods EVEN if they claim to be "healthy" or "natural" or "sugar free" or "fat free" or "antibiotic free."

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
